This was a great place to stay in Colombo. The room was really nicely designed with a large bathroom attached. The space was very clean and felt really good here. the location was central and appreciated suggestions given as to what was located nearby. Definitely recommend!

We had a short but lovely stay with Nelun and her family. The room and bathroom are extremely clean and we much appreciated that breakfast was included with our stay. The welcome drink was also a thoughtful gesture after our long train ride!

We loved our stay with Nelun and her wonderful Family. We were there during a particularly hot spell, but we had plenty of fans, lots of wonderful hot water and delicious breakfasts. All their suggestions for places to eat and shop were super. Thanks for welcoming us into your home!

Nelun & her husband welcomed us wholeheartedly, made us comfortable and we felt at home. Our stay was most enjoyable and sadly far too short.

My boyfriend and I spent only one night at Nelun's appartment during our SriLanka trip and it was a great experience. Her place is located in a good neighborhood and we can't believe we could stay at this beautiful place. The neighborhood felt safe and it was surprisingly quiet compared to the other streets around the area. The communication with Nelun was quick and smooth. She replied to our requests quickly and she lives in the house so we could always ask her for help if we needed it. The appartment is exactly as it is in the pictures, beautifully furnished and clean. We were very fortunate to be hosted in Nelun's appartment and highly recommend her place.

Nelun was a very accommodating host and has a lovely home with old world charm. The home is in a residential area, but only a Tuktuk ride away from the city. She has two friendly dogs and breakfast was absolutely delicious. She even offered breakfast for two travel companions that I was meeting up with the morning of my departure. Highly recommend!
