Dijen was a very good host. Communication was on point and he replies to the messages very promptly. He helped us with the airport pick up by booking a car to pick us up with a fair price. The room was accurate to what the pictures show, and Dijen would check in on us to make sure everything was working properly. He provided us with bottles of water, bug spray and towels. The AC worked very well, shower water pressure was quite good. The only thing is that as the shower/toilet/sink have no partition between them, the entire bathroom gets wet once you take a shower. Breakfast was the highlight for us. Well served and lots of options. They leave a kitchen so we can make eggs (provided by them), toaster, kettle. Fruits and baked goods were available as well. On our second and last day, his wife made us local breakfast which was nothing short of delicious! The only con of our stay is that the room is on street level and while during the night the street is quiet, in the morning gets pretty loud with honks and general traffic noises. That starts around 6am. Despite of that, the location of the house is very good, a short walk to a commercial street. If you are looking for a good location and yummy breakfast, this is your spot!

Dijen and his wife was excellent hosts. They speak very good English and was always available and ready to help. They gave me very good instructions on arrival too. I totally loved the house. Its like a small colonial style boutique hotel. Breakfast is great every morning with many varieties. House is always very clean. Water tea coffee is always available. I will definitely stay here again and recommend to others too. Plus house is in central Colombo. So its very easy to get to places. Wish Dijen and his family happy hosting. Cheers

Dijen's place was a perfect way for us to end our trip in Sri Lanka spending our final night in Colombo. Room is clean and aircon is great and bed was very comfortable. The house itself is beautiful and as the reviews have stated it's very private for being in someone else's home. Dijen was welcoming and hospitable and organised transport to the airport as well as being flexible with check in and check out times. Thanks so much

Dijen and his wife were very helpful and caring during our stay. They would even prepare us a goodybag since we left very early in the morning. The common area of the home is very nice. The neighborhood is good and quite central.

Good place. Dijen is a very helpful host. Bathroom is private to the bedroom, which is nice. Basically, there is a family upstairs, and then this room is part of a beautiful downstairs area with high ceilings, art, and that "oasis" area behind a wall. Breakfast was not as fantastic as other places in Sri Lanka, where I paid a few dollars for a delicious meal, but excellent for free - fresh tasty pastries from what seemed to be a fancy bakery, great bananas/plantains, some cereal options. Location was the best part - it is 7 or so minutes walk to Galle Rd, - main north south street, so I just walked there and took the super-cheap and easy public bus down to Mount Lavinia Beach and up to Colombo Fort, Pettah, etc. Much recommended - way cheaper than tuk Tuks! The only negative was how loud the room got in the mornings, I believe around 7 am - it is below road level, so it's a real rumble. I was up earlier, and this is common in Sri Lanka, but FYI.

This place is a dream! From the very comfortable room, to the delicious and well appointed breakfasts, to the excellent location, to the ample amount of indoor and outdoor living space and the excellent wifi, Dijen's beautiful abode was a great home away from home for my short stay in Colombo! Dijen and his family were also great hosts - from places to pick up an umbrella, to sights to see and places to eat, they were full of great recommendations! Highly recommend staying here if you're planning a trip out - I hope to stay there again myself. Thank Dijen!

My girlfriend and I, were booked to stay at Dijen’s palatial bungalow in Colombo for one night on the 27 March 2016. The bungalow is easy to locate and tucked away in a quiet street, which opens out into Colombo’s commercial spots. We were graced by warm welcomes by Dijen and his family on Easter Sunday. We stayed in the Aircon Oasis, which was cosy, clean and comfortable. Unfortunately, we had an early check out due to our own sudden commitments but we highly recommend a stay with Dijen if you’re ever in Colombo!
