Dijen and the family are very kind to the guest. Once you have special request, Dijen can arrange it for you at his best, we asked him to book the train tickets before we arrived in Srilanka and he bought it for us himself! Thank you again Dijen! I like the large and tidy living room / dining room and the comfortable garden. You can't imaige they have a koi pond with the koi fish in the beautiful garden! If we revisit Srilanka next time, we hope we have the chance to stay with Dijen's family again. Thank you Dijen.

Stayed in this room for 12 nights, and it was brilliant. Dijen and Family are great hosts and have struck the absolute right formula for an AirBnB stay, as this accommodation provides travelers with both comfort and privacy. This room is located on the 2nd floor of the house, and is big enough to include two beds, a work table, a large shelf, and a private attached washroom (includes a separate shower area, tub, etc.). There is a balcony and sitting area next to the room, should someone want to use it. Beds are comfortable, and the rooms are clean. Basic amenities like water, towel, bed sheets, etc. are provided. Pros and cons as below: Pros: *** The location is good, as it is close to Colombo’s main roads, and tuk tuks are easily available. Dining options are available within walking distance, and a nice bakery (Paan Paan) is just 150 m away. *** The house is beautiful, and the traveler section in the house (rooms + dining + kitchen) is nearly separate from that of the host family. This provides privacy. *** The family provides breakfast. Pastries/local delicacies, fruits, cereals. Plus, you have the option to make your own eggs, toast, tea, etc. I enjoyed the local delicacies and the fact that the dining area faces the house’s courtyard which is well maintained and green (refreshing). *** Dijen and his family were very helpful, and always reachable (very responsive). They make your stay very pleasant. Cons: Frankly, there aren’t any negatives that would bother a guest, but if I had to mention * The room gets a bit noisy because of traffic in the morning. But it didn’t bother me * Internet availability inside this room is limited. But again, this can be sorted if you step out of the room and into the sitting area. Also, mobile data in Sri Lanka is rather inexpensive (USD 1.5 for 2 GB!)! Overall, I had a brilliant stay at this place and would highly recommend it to other guests. I thank the family, and I hope to stay here again during my next visit ;-)
