My husband and I booked a night's stay with Jay at the very last minute and we're so grateful that we did! Our bus from Passikudah arrived in Colombo at 4 in the morning and he was gracious enough to let us check in early. In addition to being flexible with our check in time, Jay helped us arrange taxis to and from various locations even after we checked out of his accommodations to head south. With the Sinhalese and Tamil New Year celebration taking place, we knew it would be a challenge to arrange car service on such late notice, but Jay was able to get it done without a problem. His background in hotel management really shows through his professionalism and excellent hospitality skills. He lived in California for 18 years, but was born in Sri Lanka, so not only was he able to communicate with us in perfect English - he could also translate our needs to the locals. By arranging taxi services through him, we certainly noticed that he was able to secure much more reasonable pricing. Him and his wife also prepared snacks for us during our stay which we enjoyed very much. You can instantaneously feel their warmth when you meet them and we're so thankful that we did. They provide a comfortable stay in their beautiful home as well as an invaluable service of local knowledge and hospitality. We can't thank them enough - it was truly a pleasure!
I had pleasant stay at Jay's house. He's been helping a lot giving insight and tips to travel in Sri Lanka. He also was arranging car pick up from Colombo Fort train station to Galle, where my friend and I arrived at 9 pm, made phone call to ensure we were safe and picked up by driver he sent, until we came safely in Galle. He concerned about our safety until we departed from Sri Lanka. I appreciated it much.
We had such a great time staying at jay and his wife's home. They arranged airport pickup and organized how we were getting to the train station in the morning. Breakfast was great as well. We were disappointed that he was already booked for our way back out of the country because we wanted to stay again with them. Overall great place to stay with great people.
Jay and his wife make us feel very comfortable staying at their place.
Room is clean and homely. Jay gave us local travelling tips and helped us to get train ticket to Kandy.
Over all we had a good memorable stay at Jay’s place.
Thanks to Jay and Family.
If you are looking for hosts that go the extra mile for you ,then look no further than Jay and his wife Rinad.from the moment of booking to the time we departed Jay was there ,just a call away to assist and advise. The apartment is spotless beautifully furnished and has your every need for a short or longer stay.breakfast is prepared for you and left in the kitchen area although there is a fridge and micro if you so wish to use.the Fingara country club two minutes walk away serves delicious very reasonably food with a fair menu to chose from ,although you will go a long way to beat the chicken kottu.we spent three days with Jay and used a tuk yuk to go into Colombo ,made so easy by Jay arranging the transport the night before with an excellent driver ,that dare I say it ,didn't rip you off.thank you both very much ,we look forward to staying with you again.

Jay and his wife have been the perfect hosts. We would have liked to stay longer and enjoy both their hospitality, travel tips and the spacious house - but since we were already on our way back home, we only stayed for one night. I can really recommend staying with them, especially at the start of traveling through Sri Lanka.
Jay and his wife make you feel the Sri Lankan hospitality within minutes!! The apartment is great, clean and very big! Around the corner from the apartment is a country club with swimming pool and lovely food. The location is different to what the map shows, it's about 60 minutes to the city centre, but very close to mount Lavinia, and the neighborhood is safe, so all good!! Thank you again!
My son and I stayed with Jay and his beautiful wife for 3 days and all I can say is we will be back they have a beautiful house which is spotlessly clean and comfortable they both went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and also organised our taxi to and from the airport Jay recommended a local Tuk Tuk driver who took us wherever we wanted to go at a very reasonable price. The country club very close to the house was a fabulous place the food was amazing and very reasonable and for a small fee you could use the swimming pool,gym, etc I would highly recommend this accommodation val india
If you want to experience genuine Sri Lankan hospitality, stay with Jay and Ridma! They have a gorgeous and very clean home and we got plenty of space to ourselves. They also really took lots of time to make us feel comfortable, give us great advise for travelling the country and chat with us. To us it was important, to get to know the "real" Sri Lanka better and Jay and Ridma made it possible. They are very personable and fun to be around!
Like many wrote before, getting to their house from Fort Colombo takes quite a while and tuk tuk drivers generally get lost. Many of them use that to argue to get more money. Jay really supported us in these situations! If you don't mind haggling and/or are on a budget and can stand your grounds in arguments like that, taking the tuk tuk is an option. Otherwise, Jay can arrange pickups from the airport and probably also from the station, which in hindsight we recommend for more hassle free travel.
We loved our experience with Jay and Ridma so much, that we decided to come back for a second night after a little trip to Kandy and the cultural sites, which had already been booked. Jay organised a tour for us at a rate that was much fairer, than what we were able to find online. The driver was excellent and took us all places we wanted to see.
We highly recommend staying with Jay and Ridma, no hotel will be able to give you such excellent and personalised service!
We really enjoyed staying with Jay and his wife - both kind and attentive hosts. The apartment is comfortable and in a calm location away from the more hectic areas of Colombo.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
