Greatest advantages of the Lena House are a large, beautiful pool and a green garden to spend relaxing holidays. You get to watch monkeys jumping in the tree tops while enjoying a coconut fresh from the garden. Palm trees offer a nice shade to the pool and the dining area is conveniently located right next to the pool. The house itself offers a basic accomodation with a well-functioning air conditioning in the sleeping rooms. The kitchen equipment would need updating, especially pans etc. We had some problems with the mosquitoes during the night, there are no mosquito nets provided. There is also only one bathroom available in the main building. The local house manager offered us very good service organising tuk tuk transportation to nice beaches nearby and longer trips by an air-conditioned van. We were even offered a nice Sri Lankan dinner prepared by the house manager and his wife. He kept the garden and the pool very clean by a daily cleaning. However, the visitors need to clean the house themselves during the stay. There are no touristic services nearby the house (apart from a few small shops providing water, fruits etc.) but you can reach nice restaurants and beautiful beaches easily by tuk tuk in 15-20 minutes. The area is pretty quiet, not too much trafic on the road passing in front of the house. Wifi worked well during our stay apart from a few short electricity cuts. We stayed in the house for two weeks with two small kids and felt perfectly safe and well taken care of during our stay. Would recommend the Lena House for anyone looking for an affordable accommodation with a nice pool.

We lived in this house from 31.10.15 till 15.11.15. There were a lot of problems we faced during our stay: 1) The owner of the house is not Denis from France as he said during our chat with him, but local guy Saman. We have no problems with locals, but the fact that the owner lies to you is not very plesant. 2) The house itself has only 4 rooms (not 5 as the description says). The 5th room is the separate extention to the house that was closed during our stay and was named by Saman as "his room". One of 3 bathrooms has no toilet - just a hole in the floor instead. The gas for the kitchen is for an extra charge. The internet connection was great for the first half of our stay - then the speed droped to 30-40kbps till our departure (it was not related to the weather conditions, we think there is some traffic limitations wich we were not told about). The pool was cleaned only once in 5-6 days, so it stayd with leaves and caterpillars basicly all the time. The house was not cleaned at all, the bed linens were not changed at all within aur stay. 3) Saman is very jelous when you try to book an excursion or even tuk-tuk from any other guy but him. Couple of times it cost us a lot of troubles when he threatened violence the guys we tried to go with. 4) Saman has a lot of problems with alcohol. Several evenings he came drunk and slept in "his room" even when we told him that we booked all the house and we don't want him around. His argument allways was: "It's my house, nobody can tell me not to come here". Once he threatened our tuk-tuk friends who came to pick us up to the restaurant and forced us to go in his tuk-tuk (he just was threatening all other tuk-tukers and they went away) while he was badly drunk - the ride was very dangerous. 5) The worst incident happened when we were checking out. We booked the transfer to the aiport from the other guy and that turned Saman mad. When the car came to pick us up Saman brought a lot of his friends and told the driver that if the car goes with us he will damage it badly and that nobody can do airport transfer from Lena House but him. So the driver went away without us and we had to go in the rain with all our baggage to the bus stop and then by bus out of the village to catch our plane. From our point of view this type of behavior is unacceptable for the house owner. With all that problems with the house and it's owner's behaviour we would like to request a refund for the house and ask all the users of airbnb to think twise before booking Lena House.

It was terrible The owner send only french phone numbers which were not available when we arived in Colombo. We were really happy to find villa after 3 hours of searching... We gave notice of early check-in but when we arrived at villa it was busy by other guests! The local manager said, nobody waited for us, because nobody sent him any information!! We could move in villa about 13 p.m. (after ten hour flight + three hour of search villa..) We said two times we need the bed for baby but as a result we solved this problem oт the spot. Cleaning was satisfactory but we needed to force cleaning the rooms although we agreed to clean rooms every 2 days. Also we had some problems with hot water - it was only in one shower room and water flowed barely. There are 3 shower rooms in villa but we could use only 2 - because of rain season it wasn't possible to reach shower room behind the villa. Bed clothes was very dirty and stained. Washing mashine didn't work although it was announced in advertisment Pluses: We asked free breakfast as a compensation and it was done Local managers were hospitable Good swimming pool If you ready to have the ascetic accomodation, welcome!

AIRBNB COMMUNITY: ATTENTION to this client, she'll do anything to save money. DO NOT TRUST. HOUSE = 450 euros/ week + FREE BREAKFAST for 10 people during 13 days!!!! (BREAKFAST 4 euros * (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) €) THE WASH MACHINE WAS NOT INCLUDED. THE ROOMS ARE CLEANED. I NEVER listened a such thing in 3 yeras of activitie. What did you expect? You are the first client insatisfy. You never communicated your arrival time at the airport. I purposed you the transfer from Colombo...But no answer. I call you twice during your stay in order to know if eveything was ok! BUT NO ANSWER. So i thought everything was find. There were no problem. I paid 500 euros breakfast for you in compensation of the problem of your arrival time and the baby bed (not ready). you are part of its eternally dissatisfied and selfish customers who lie to earn money. Thanks to you, the local Sri Lankan will lose customers that permits them to win some money and try to have a better life. Well done.

Amazing villa for rest with big company. Situated in local, non- touristic place relaxed place. Keep your mind, not in all accommodations there will be hot water in Sri Lanka. Usually , it's warm, pleasant water for shower. Well equipped kitchen with coffee - maker, refrigerator. A lot of birds, plants on the garden territory. We saw big monkeys on the trees! Very nice! Like this place very much! Best relation "price-quality " Recommended to all!

Отдыхали на новогодних каникулах. Будьте готовы к тому, что дорога из аэропорта до виллы занимает 3 часа. До океана нужно добираться на тук туке. В проживании на вилле были плюсы и минусы. Минусы: - грязный дом ( кухня, ванные комнаты)., - отсутсвие чистого постельного белья, отсутсвие одеял., - отсутствие нормальной посуды в которой можно готовить ( дырявые кастрюли, ржавые сковородки)., - отсутствие нужного колличества полотенец . На двух взрослых приходилось 1 полотенце., - отсутствие горячей воды в ванных комнатах ( после долгих дискуссий и напоминаний через неделю после начала отдыха,был приобретён водонагреватель в 1 ванную комнату)., - плохо работающая сантехника ( очень плохо смывали унитазы) - плохой интернет или его отсутствие ( постоянно нужно просить проплатить)., - после 3 дней на вилле , бассейн стал зелёным ( грязным), который мы просили почистить. Итог: через 3 дня его почистили очень плохо, продолжать купаться не было желания., - мусорная свалка находящаяся на территории виллы, которую сожгли в день нашего отъезда. Свалка привлекала насекомых, которые потом гостили у нас, собак и кошек, которые разносили его по всему участку. Плюсы: Большой бассейн. Наличие холодильника и телевизора. Наличие вентиляторов и кондиционеров в каждой комнате. Красивая природа.

Asuimme talossa 4 viikkoa ja lomamme oli erittäin onnistunut. Talo soveltui erittäin hyvin lasten kanssa lomailuun, meitä asui samaan aikaan parhaimmillaan 5 aikuista ja 4 lasta. Talon kuvaus vastasi hyvin todellisuutta. Talo oli siisti ja hyvässä kunnossa, ja jokaisessa makuuhuoneessa oli oma ilmastointi. Keittiö oli hyvä ja toimiva, mutta paistinpannut ja kattilat eivät. Astiasto taas oli iso ja riittävä useankin päivän tarpeisiin. Uima-allas oli upea ja sitä huollettiin ja putsattiin lähes päivittäin, joten vesi pysyi kirkkaana ja puhtaana muutamaa päivää lukuunottamatta. Allas soveltui myös hyvin pienten lasten kanssa uimiseen, matalassa päässä lapset pystyivät uimaan helposti itsekseen ilman että tarvitsi pelätä. Talon manageri oli erittäin ystävällinen ja avulias ja piti meistä ja meidän tarpeistamme huolta koko loman ajan. Hänen avullaan saimme helposti järjestettyä matkat vesiputouksille ja Yalan luonnonpuistoon, eikä tarvinnut pelätä huijatuksi tulemista hintojen tai kyytien puolesta. Samoin vierailut lähikyliin ja kaupunkeihin onnistuivat helposti ja hyvään hintaan, joten hänestä oli suuri apu loman aikana. Hän myös tarjosi meille kaksi kertaa päivällistä kodissaan lomamme aikana, jotka olivat erittäin miellyttäviä kokemuksia ja tekivät lomasta huomattavasti mukavamman. Talon läheltä löytyy kioskeja joista saa ostettua vettä, maitoa, leipää, jogurttia ja hedelmiä, mutta isommat ostokset pitää käydä tekemässä 2,5 kilometrin päässä kylässä. Hyvä surffiranta on 400-500 metrin päässä, eli helposti käveltävissä, mutta pienten lasten kanssa rantaleikkeihin kannattaa mennä noin 2 kilometrin päässä olevalle rannalle, joka oli aivan loistava sekä surffiin, että ihan vaan rantaleikkeihin ja auringonottoon. Lähin ravintola on noin 800 metrin päässä olevassa rantahotellissa, jossa oli hyvä ja ok hintainen ruoka. Kaiken kaikkiaan talo oli aivan loistava lapsiperheen tarpeisiin ja ympäristö oli miellyttävä ja turvallinen. Hieman sivussa oleva sijainti on ainoa miinus, mutta vuokraamalla esimerkiksi skootterin, tämäkin ongelma poistuu ja tuktukkeja on saatavilla helposti kun kyytiä tarvitsee. Voin suositella taloa lämpimästi.
