Our stay with Gayathri was great! The apartment is situated in a nice neighbourhood and all attractions within Colombo are easily accessible. The house itself is very nice and Gayathri recommended us nice places in Colombo. We would definitely come back again!
I had a great stay with Gayathri and her family! After more than 30hrs of travelling I was ready for a comfortable place to rest and her home was exactly what I needed. It was very clean and the bed was comfortable. I didn't ask for the AC but the fan above the bed was sufficient. The house is located in a great neighbourhood of Colombo and was pretty easy to find - tip: use Google maps to get close but then follow her directions because Google puts her house a few blocks north.
We had a great stay with Gayathri and her lovely family. Although we arrived at a very unsociable hour of the morning before our room was vacated, we were welcomed warmly and given a spare room to rest in. The room was clean and comfortable, everyone was very helpful and the breakfast was delicious! We loved looking at the many books that line the walls. Thanks again Gayathri for such a wonderful welcome to Sri Lanka.
It was a very pleasant stay. The room is clean, spacious and comfortable. Our hosts know how to take care of the guests. The place is quiet and well located.
Thanks for all
Out stay was brief but lovely. Clean room and easy to get to via taxi from the airport. Good communication and delicious breakfast included!
Goede locatie en rustige plek in Colombo! We voelde ons direct welkom in Sri Lanka! Kamer was ruim en schoon, ontbijt heerlijk! Tuktuk bestuurders kunnen de locatie niet altijd vinden, dus neem zelf ook je verantwoordelijkheid. Wij vinden dit heerlijk, een echte homestay
The room was in a lovely residential area. I was made to feel very welcome by Gayathri and she helped me get to the airport for an early morning flight. The room was clean and very comfortable, I would recommend her place to any future guests!
