All 5 of us were happy to stay in Anton's place. Anton's brother-in-law warmly welcomed us despite the fact we arrived very early in the morning and provided excursion on the villa and surroundings.
Villa itself is the masterpiece and it looks much better than on photos, it is situated on one of Negombo main streets however it is calm and quiet there.
Park beach and shopping street are in walking distance and can be reached in 15 minutes (or 2-3 in tuk-tuk). Supermarket with all the necessary stuff is in 300m.
In addition whet it came that our taxi driver number is not correct Anton's brother-in-law Channa kindly arranged us another minivan and let us stay in the villa for more than an hour until the van came.
Thanks a lot for them both for being so responsive and so greeting.
To anyone else - this is a really good option (if not the best) to stay in Negombo.
We are really happy that while looking for the rental for our vacations in Sri Lanka we found Anton's house. It is a real great villa - a family, 2 or even 3 couples can easily live there, but if you want - the hosts will be so kind that the whole villa will be only for you two. It is well equiped and contains everything you may need. All roms are very nice and you can choose where to sleep)) the aircon works good everywhere. You really feel yourself at home. It is also very privat because it is not really in a noisy area but it is rather close to beach and restaurants (5 min by tuk-tuk) :) and of course all kind words is for Anton's brother Channa who met us in the airport and from that moment was our keeper in Sri Lanka:)) we had an amasing trip to Kandy with him, he also advised us all the restaurants and aurveda massage salon and every moment was ready to help. Best wishes to the hosts and highly recommend!!
Anton is very helpful. He told me how to go to his place in details before I arrived Sri Lanka. House is located in a quiet place with a nice yard , easy to go to town center by TuTu or bus or taxi. Kichen is good for cooking. House is very clean. If you want a quiet place to take a rest for a few days in Negombo, I recommend Anton's house.
Channa, who's looking after the house, picked us up from the airport and took us there, via supermarket to get the necessities. House is spacious and comfortable in every way. Wifi is good. One bedroom lacks a/c, and only one has mosquito net. Some bugs, mainly ants, as well as a frog and a lizard. But that's kind of expected in this climate I guess :) We spent our days at the beach and in "the Camelots" hotel pool. The day we left, Channa took us to Kandy via the elephant orphanage. Certainly more expensive than busses or trains, but very convenient.
1. Place is very spacious. Very airy and very welcoming.
2. The kitchen is nice barring a few minor problems (ants in some parts, no bread/butter/eggs for a quick breakfast). However, Joe was extremely helpful and we walked around to a supermarket (less than 5 minutes walk) to get these items. Also there are not any restaurants very close by. I think the closest ones are 1 km away. This was not a problem for us as we only stayed here for 1 day- most of which we spent on Negombo beach but is something to keep in mind.
3. Slightly away from Negombo beach. We paid 200 SLR (one way to Jetwing Blue, Negombo beach) by autorickshaw and taxi from airport was 1620 SLR (Air conditioned cab from the counter). Joe was extremely helpful and arranged the auto rickshaw when we needed.
4. The room is very nice and spacious. The AC was fine and we slept well.
5. Airport drop: Joe arranged to drop us in his own car which was great for us. He was extremely helpful and said that he did this because he did not trust the taxis too much at night. Thumbs up for the help.
We were welcomed very warmly by Mr.Joe(father in law of the owner).The house is excellent and clean.The house has all facilities for a family to cook and wash clothes.The hosts ensured that they are ready to assist if needed and we had enough privacy to make the stay very comfortable.We had a very early checkout(3.30 am) as we wanted to board a train from (website hidden).Joe arrived promptly with a smile and without any complaints.Definitely a property to revisit if we can.
About the Host, Anton
I am a Sri Lankan by birth and currently living in Orlando Florida United States. I enjoy hosting guests in our house in Sri Lanka. I do not travel much but I love to stay in AirBnB hosted houses whenever I travel around United States with my family. It is indeed very interesting to see how people around the globe differ in their cultures but bond with each other as human beings.
