She is a person with a open mind who likes discuss, sing, make people happy:))))) and we are so thank you harshini !!!!!! We will never forget the time spend together and we were so lucky to have you for our first days and first time in Sri Lanka :)))))) we hope we will see you soon :))))) Sarah and stephy
Delightful and the loveliest host ever! Harshi made us feel welcome and treated us to a generous spread of snacks and drinks when we first got in and during our breakfast. The property was beautiful, charming and very well presented and equipped. Would highly recommend both the property and the host. Thank you Harshi for all your kindness, knowledgeable advice and it's just been delightful meeting you and staying over at your charming property.
Thank you for your lovely comments but Jenny you were special for 2 reasons. One is even though you were born in England you are still a Sri Lan and ofcourse connections with Dublin University in Ireland and thats where i graduated too.
You have already climbed the ladder of success at your v young age but sky is the limit.
Wishes for Very Happy Future together.
It was so wonderful to stay with Harshini in Colombo. You will be surprised with all that Harshini will do to you. So please donˊt be hasitate to make your decision to get there. By the way, the ttraffic is so convienent too.
It was the highlight of our trip and it gave us the happiest ending of our trip in amazing Sri Lanka. Thanks for everything the lovely and considerate host Harshini have done to us. I can not thank her enough.
Thanks so much for the lovely words and yes ofcourse we will meet some days soon again...You are a sweet little girl and please see that you complete your studies atleast upto the Masters level.Sky is the limit...ha...ha...ha...
Good luck with your studies.
My words will never be able to do justice in describing Harshi’s generosity, kindness, love, and work ethic, but I will try my best. Harshi is the most amazing person that my friend and I have ever met. Even if I live until I am 100 years old, I can say with confidence that meeting Harshi will be one of the most fortunate things in my life.
Harshi went beyond any host and was more like family. In fact, I told my mom about our trip and she said “You are so lucky to have Harshi. She is like a second mother!” (Harshi, I hope it is okay that I now consider you my family in Sri Lanka!) Harshi went out of her way to create the most amazing itinerary and organize a driver for me and my friend so that we could see as much of Sri Lanka as possible during our short stay. She frequently checked-in on us making sure we were okay and would also negotiate on the phone with people to make sure we were getting good prices when she wasn’t with us. Harshi also made the most delicious meal we had during our entire stay in Sri Lanka.
She really did not have to do everything she did for us, but Harshi is the type of person who is generous with her time, love, and everything else she has to give. Harshi is also one of the smartest and wisest people Mike and I have ever met. She had so much knowledge on the Sri Lanka and advice on life in general. It was so wonderful learning so much from her. Harshi even spent our final day in Sri Lanka showing us around!
The world is a better place because of Harshi, and I am a better person for having met her. I aspire to be as loving and hardworking as Harshi.
I miss you already, Harshi! I want to come back and bring my family so you can meet them!
Lots of love,
Hey Julie girl, many many thanks for your 5 star review and what a longgggg story. Thank you darling so much and yes ofcourse my doors will be open for your mum and dad too. I am sure you are now getting ready to receive your Doctorate award in May and wish i'll be there to see you receiving the award.See you soon and after the graduation please send me a photo of both of you.
I stayed with Harshini for my first night in Sri Lanka and it was just what I needed after a long flight. Harshini made me feel welcome as soon as I arrived, and had some food prepared for me straight away. She is warm, kind and friendly, and made me feel at home.
I had an early train to catch to Kandy the following morning, which required getting a different train from Harshini's place to Colombo Fort station first. She got up at 5am (possibly earlier!), prepared breakfast and took the first train with me to ensure I got on the right one.
I didn't really see much of Colombo, but the place seemed pretty central. The room, living room and bathroom are all extremely clean and cosy. I definitely recommend staying with Harshini.
Harshini is the most enthusiastic host I've encountered. Upon checkin, she provided us with chilled orange juice and ample amount of enthusiasm, which lasts throughout our conversation. She walked us to the bus station to go to the Dutch Hospital precinct. In the morning, breakfast was plentiful and well prepared. Knowing that we're doing PhDs, she was very excited about getting a degree herself and talked to us about the value of education. She even sang the Birthday song to my friend.
The apartment itself is the best decorated out of the six apartments we stayed at in Sri Lanka. It provides the utmost comfort and hot water is stable (which is oftentimes a luxury). Location-wise, it could be a bit hard to find, but knowing that it's right next to the Sarasavi bookstore helps. Overall a great experience!
