Sam's Studio apartment exceed my expectations! It was super clean, well equipped and centrally located. I was initially very skeptical as Mel had commented that it was mosquito infested. I was very pleasantly surprised to find out that the windows had netting to make it mosquito proof and thankfully I had not issues with mosquitoes during my stay. The Wi-fi connection was strong and I was able to work without any interruptions. All other electrical appliances and equipment was in topping condition and I highly recommend this apartment to both business and leisure travelers.

Floor to ceiling Windows in the bedroom & a shady, green garden in front. Netting, fan & AC to keep away mosquitoes. Walking distance to variety of shopping & restaurants.

Harshani's apartment is very clean, cozy and quiet with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The apartment is an addition to the end of the house with beautiful front and rear gardens. Harshani is lovely. She speaks English, was careful to give us privacy and very prompt and helpful with any requests. She provided us with all the information we needed to make our arrival, stay and departure very enjoyable. Highly recommended!

We had a great time at Harshani's apartment. It is exactly as in the pictures. We were also taken care of by the tuktuk driver she recommended. He took us around the main sites and some not so known places.

I'm from Sri Lanka, living in Colombo. I enjoy travelling the world and learning about other cultures.. So far I have traveled to 45 countries and hoping to do many more! I also like hosting visitors from around the world and happy to help guests to explore this beautiful island. I use my spare time (as a volunteer) to manage a Boy's Orphanage just outside Colombo.
