Interaction with Guests
We are happy to help you with anything. There is a property manager and a caretaker available in case you need any help. Other than that, we will leave you alone to enjoy yourself in what is very much a home setting. No one else lives at the residence other than the guests. It's all available to you.
The neighborhood is peaceful. You are close to the airport and the city, but away from the main road. The house is set in a big garden and the garden is surrounded by a security fence / wall and gates for additional security for the residents. You are a few minutes walk to the local churches and historic temples and a short taxi / tuk tuk ride away from the beach. Neighbors are friendly and most of the folks would speak some English.
Getting around is easy. There are tuk tuks and taxis readily available. They are mostly available outside the residence. If not, we have provided you directions on how to contact them. You will find these directions inside the house. The Negombo town and the beach hotels / restaurants are 5-10 minutes away by tuk tuk.
Other Things to Note
The daily price quoted here is for 1 room per night. The price will vary depending on the number of guests and the number of rooms.
We leave the house all to yourself, but simply ask to keep the place secure by locking the doors and gates when you leave the house and in the evenings. During your stay, we expect to keep the place clean and tidy.
It's a very beautiful house! Highly recommended.
It was a pleasure hosting Yanyu and friends. The up front questions and interactions were really good and we were happy to be able to povide the guests with an extended stay / late check out to fit in with their flight schedule. We would love to have you back any time.
The house is amazing, very spacious and has a great big kitchen and we even had coffee and tea in the cupboards! The beach is 15 min on a tuk tuk and all the restaurants and bars are there too! The airport is 5 min away in a taxi! The only improvement that can be added to this amazing place is air conditioning as it gets really hot at night! Thank you for everything!! Regards Petya
Rana was a fantastic host - she was incredibly responsive and very helpful, replying almost immediately to all inquires with very detailed information. The caretaker, Nimal, was also wonderful - he met us at the house, helped us find taxi drivers and tour operators, and even brought us some lovely treats for New Year's day.
The house itself is lovely and exactly as pictured - spacious, beautiful green lawn, high ceilings, very clean. The bathrooms are large, clean, in perfect working condition and had good water pressure and hot and cold water. The house is surrounded by a padlocked gate which provides a lot of security (although the neighborhood itself is very nice, so this is really just a precaution).
The location is also as described, very near the airport, and a short tuk tuk ride away from town and the beach. There are little convenience shops immediately near the house, and the main road is perhaps a 15 minute walk away. We found that some drivers were not familiar with street names so a map or a well-known landmark (i.e. ask for "Bolawalana junction") did the trick.
Overall, we had a fantastic experience in Sri Lanka and this house, which comfortably fit 5 adults. Colombo is a 30-60 minute drive away, and day trips to Kandy and other parts of the island are very feasible. Great value for money, highly recommended!
Smooth booking with Rana, she provided lots of useful information on the area and trip planning for us. The house is great, really is like the pictures, we were met by the caretaker, Nimal who was very helpful in getting us settled and helping our driver. The house is about 10 mins from the tourist strip, so its best if you have a driver or take a tut tut which are easy to find around the area. The only downside for us was the weather as it was cold and wet most of our stay. This meant no hot water for 3 days as the house only has solar hot water, an electric shower would be advantage. I would recommend this place for groups or families.
"Brand new house" info was 100%correct.We all felt very familiar and safe.
The house owner`s information regarding the person whom to contact before arrival was correct.The incharge person(Nimal) was very friendly and helpful to all our needs.I am sure if we get a chance again we would choose this house also in future.
We noticed people around this house were also friedly and helpful.
We would recommend this place for those who want to avoid Colombo trafic and safe time.
Loved the place. Ample space and a beautiful garden my son loved to play in. Nimal the caretaker was wonderful.
