Harshini is a warm, friendly and funny host who makes sure you will have everything you need during your stay. From the delicious breakfast to good information for your trip. She makes you feel totally welcome. She even made some bread with lovely ommelets for our traintrip to Anuradapura. 5 stars for us! :)
Harshini is the hostest with the mostest - the reviews are true. She is beyond kind and goes out of her way to help each and every guest! If you're looking for a lively place with a chance to meet guests and get great information on Sri Lanka and have all your needs accounted for, this is the place. Harshini has been so helpful to me throughout my entire trip - I can't thank her enough!
A couple things to know about the place: it is spotlessly clean, the hot water works, no problems there. The place is a number of steps up so anyone who has trouble walking up steps might want to take that into consideration Dehiwala is very close to mount Lavinia, so if that's where you want to be, it's a perfect location. If you're planning on spending a lot of time in Colombo and need to be close to the city center on a daily basis, know that the place is on the far south end of the city and there is much traffic getting into Colombo.
Overall, the place is wonderful, Harshini will be sure you have a full belly at all times, and she is a great link to have in Sri Lanka - she can help you with whatever you need. Highly recommended.
Harhsini is a great host - went out of her way to ensure we were fed and well looked after - the room was super clean and cool with air conditioning - arrived to a cooked breakfast and a very warm welcome. Great place to stop for a night to find your feet after landing in Colombo. Thank you Harshini.
In Harshini place I spent two wonderful days. The apartment is very nice and clen. But in all host wins, she is super host!!! Of that, Harshini prepared delicious breakfast, she drove me to Colombo, helped arrange further accommodation in Shrilanka, arranged vecihle with driver.... Mainly, u can't ask for better viewing! Harshini, thank u for everything:)
我们非常高兴在兰卡的最后一天选择了Harshini，这是一个家庭的2层房间，我们一共占用了4个房间，就相当于整个房间都被我们占用，因为在兰卡很多天，都吃不习惯当地的食物，Harshini 非常好的帮忙带路去当地的超市购买中国面条，还提前电话联系，第二天一早来帮忙做早饭，和我们的小孩聊天，Harshini 非常喜欢小孩。总之，一切都让我们感觉很贴心，屋子很舒服，房东很热情，第二天送我们走的时候，还在路口看好车过来，才让我们走到路口，如果有下一次的话，还是会选择Harshini。感谢她给我们的兰卡之行画上完美的句号。
From the first moment we connect with the host until the end of our 4 days travel in Sri Lanka, we keep in touch with dear Harshini even we only stay in her place for one night. She is a very kind and helpful person, sincere adviser.She does her best to help us, so many touching attentions in my memory. She even gave me call when i encountered a problem in Hong Kong. Also, she helped us find save and nice cab driver to pick us from airport in the mid night, she even got up early and prepared breakfast. The room for stay are very tidy and comfortable, i and my friend loves the room very much!! Harshini treats us like her own children. we are so grateful to Harshini for making our stay such a warm and wonderful experience. I won't hesitate to rent the same place if i return to Sri Lanka someday again. I give all my wishes to Harshini and her family.
19th of March 2015 was a very important day in our life. Because it is on that day we found a great human being 'Harshini'. Me and my family found a geniune and compassionate person in her.
In fact we were unable to make a stay with her. I was travelling with my mother and she felt very sick due to pain on her knees. We had to rush to the hospital directly from the airport. We called Harshini, she visited us in the hospital and promised us all her support.
And she informed us she will write to Airbnb to get us a full refund.
In a very bad time of our life we met a wonderful and genuine human being. She is definiteley more than a host.
May God bless her in all her endeavours and a very focused effort in hospitality industry.
