I am a 29 year old TV producer living and working between London and Sydney. I love my job as it includes a lot of travel and meeting amazing new people.

This is a nice apartment for your stay in London. The neighborhood is accessible by public transport, it is very close to Tower Bridge and across from Tower of London, and there are a number of restaurants and some grocery stores in the area. The apartment fit two adult couples well, the bathroom is a good size, the kitchen has the basics for preparing some meals, and there is seating for four at the dinner table and on couches. The apartment was a bit warm and stuffy due to the unusually warm weather during our stay, but we were able to air it out and get comfortable. The internet worked well, which was great. Check in and out were fairly smooth with a friend letting us in. We did not get to meet Sam, but communicated often and she was great at giving directions and recommendations and answering all questions during our stay! Thanks for opening up your apartment to us Sam!
I booked the villa for my family for a period of 3 days. Samantha and her mother were both lovely and great to deal with. In terms of the villa itself, my family gave me the following feedback:
- Clean, tidy, homely, safe & comfortable. Daily cleaning, laundry, cooking willingly on short notice. Excellent cook.
- Attentive & helpful staff but not interfering.
- Good communication with owner/ some language difficulties with staff, but overcome .
- Mosquitos nets in all rooms would be desirable.
- Overall a great place to stay.
Thanks very much!
The villa is comfortable with a beautiful pool and garden area in a nice residential area. The villa comes with a friendly staff who are willing (on request) to cook you a excellent local curry.
We enjoyed our stay and will return next time.
I stayed with two friends in this villa for four nights. The villa has a nicely decorated living area downstairs and a comfortable TV room upstairs. Sam was extra helpful addressing any issues we had both before and during our stay and the villa staff prepared delicious meals for us on request. There are small grocery stores right outside the villa and a supermarket is a short tuk tuk ride away, but the staff were happy to make the shopping trips for us.The villa is about a 15 minute ride away from most places in colombo and about a 30 minute ride away from the airport depending on traffic. Overall, I highly recommend this villa for large groups looking to stay together in Colombo.
We stayed in the house during a brief visit to Colombo with our children aged 9 and 7. They loved the pool and the TV area and the house was ideal for a family.
The house was easy to find and felt really welcoming and secure. All the bedrooms were comfortable and the kitchen area had all the basics ready and waiting for us.
Just wish we'd been able to stay a bit longer.
Samantha's mum stayed with me while visiting in Sydney - both Sam and her mum were lovely and I would recommend them as guests
It was a great pleasure having Sam and crew staying at S9! They left the apartment orderly and clean. Looking forward to having her and her friends stay with us again - next time perhaps in one of our other apartments or B&B?
