Dijen and his family were wonderful hosts and opened their beautiful home to me. I cannot thank them enough.
Dijen and his family were really great! We had an extra person who showed up at the last mimute and they provide us an extra bed right away!
The house is beautiful and it is well located between Mountlavina district and downtown Colombo.
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour avec nos 4 enfants.
La maison est très accueillante, la terrasse extérieure bien agréable.
Dommage que la chambre du haut soit un peu bruyante le matin...
Merci pour les très bons love cake !
Nous reviendrons sûrement vous voir .
Dijen was very friendly and he and his family were very hospitable. We had a great room, plenty of space etc. Dijen was keen to help and assist us in whatever way we needed, sorting out transport on the morning of our departure and sorting a breakfast to go for us at short notice.
The only word of warning I would give is that the house is a fair distance from the airport, train station etc. if you are looking for a one night stop off before leaving Colombo I would suggest staying further north. However other than that I would strongly recommend staying here.
Thank you for your kind Review. Trust you had a pleasant stay here, and hope your vacation in the island was an enjoyable one too. It was indeed a pleasure to host you recently. Wishing you all the Best in your future endeavours, and hope to see you again in the not too distant future! Kind Regards,Dijen.
This is the sort of place I hate to leave a review about because I don't want the secret to get out! The house is beautiful, the room we used was spacious and bright, and the breakfast spread was fantastic. I would stay again and highly recommend.
My mom and I were very happy to stay at Dijen´s place. It was right to choose this place and we had a good time. His house is huge and includes everything you need for a perfect stay: We were very thankful for the highspeed internet. But the most important was, his apartment was clean and very quite.
We recommend Dijen´s place for perfect holidays and want to say thank you for everything.
Staying with Dijen and his family was a delightful way to commence our holiday in Sri Lanka. The family is charming and kind and they were happy to tell us about Sri Lanken life and places to go in Colombo. The house is beautiful. The rooms were clean and towels and bottled water were provided. The courtyard area is a real treat - we spent both evenings relaxing outside in the warm evening air. Breakfast was included - also a real treat! - and we got to sample Sri Lanken cereals, fruit, juice, yoghurt and more! The location is pretty good, and Dijen was able to tee up transport from the airport for one of our party. Dijen was also really flexible, and accommodated an extra traveller at the last minute! Thanks Dijen and co! You really set the bar high!
Thank you for your kind Review. It was indeed a pleasure to host you recently.
Trust you had a good visit of Colombo, and are having a pleasant vacation in the island! Wishing you all the Best!, and hope to see you again in the not too distant future. Kind Regards, Dijen.
