Thisanthi was very welcoming and accommodating, helping us with planning our first evening in Colombo and arranging a taxi for us at the check out the next day. The place is very comfortable and private with a separate entrance. We found the location difficult to find but our stay was definitely pleasant.

We changed our plan in the last moment and decided to stay in Colombo for two nights before out flight back. This nice place was just as described, pleasant, tidy, with super great host Thisanti. With all every day obligations she managed to surprise us with morning snack, refreshments and always had a good advice and answer for every question. Thank you for all

The room was as described, very clean with a fan, a kettle, tea & coffee as well as some biscuits where available with milk and water in the fridge. The accommodation is approx 1 hours from CMB airport but our lovely host had arranged a taxi for pick up (approx 20€ including toll but can vary depending on the toll charges). In the evening time we wanted to go for dinner and our host kindly brought us to a nice restaurant. The family are very nice and welcoming and we had a great conversation with them prior to our dinner. Thank you very much for your hospitality.

From Colombo, Sri Lanka.
Me and my husband are IT professionals working in multi-national software companies. We have a 6 year old little daughter.
All 3 of us like traveling, movies and cooking. We have been to countries such as USA, UK, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Singapore and waiting to visit many more and getting to know new people, learn new stuff, new cultures and visit amazing places around the world.
Next countries in our wish list: India, Dubai, Hong Kong, France (Thanks to Airbnb now we have friends whom we can get the support in these countries.)
We have found hosting in AirBnB was a perfect idea allows us to interact with guests from different parts of the world that bring difference to our routine life style.
