Stefan, Samantha's brother who is in charge when she is abroad was a great host and great help, real nice guy!
The apartment is nice, good bed, hot shower all you need! Located a bit out the city center which is actually not so bad i think
For a couple of 100 rs you can take a tuk tuk into the busy colombo :-).
A great value for money i would say this place to stay!
Samantha's family house is a little paradise very close to the city centre. The staff looked over us as a mother and prepared a truly wonderful homecooked dinner on the day of our arrival. Brother Stefan helped out with the communication when our hand and foot failed, he gave great tips and advice regularly. We, but espescially the kids, loved the pool! A lovely start of the day! We have warm memories of this start of our trip and hope to be back one day. Soma, Stefan an Samantha: Thanks so much for having us in your family home and looking after us as you did, we really loved it!
Sam and her family were fantastic hosts nothing was too much trouble. We have really enjoyed our stay and she and her wonderful mother and brother are kind and gentle people who have now become friends. We hope to keep in touch. The apartment was comfortable and the area is vibrant with plenty of shops near by and only 20 minutes from the centre by tuk tuk. Highly recommended.
We had a great stay at Samantha's flat, it's a very nice place in a good area, near some pub, markets and at ten minutes by walk to the underground station of London Bridge but it is in a quite area. Samantha has been very nice with us, and even if we've never met she managed to let us have the keys and if we had some problem she did all that she can to resolve it.
Our visit and stay at Samantha's Tower Bridge flat was a wonderful experience. It was in the exact vicinity as advertised, the flat was clean, open, and had the amenities as advertised, and Samantha responded quickly to any questions, requests which arrived. We are 3 over-60 adults.
The corner grocery store is managed by very nice people with fresh produce and extensive choice of products.
We were only a few minutes from Tower Bridge and the restaurants along the Thames, all offering a variety of cuisines.
London Bridge Underground was a few blocks away adjacent to the newly opened Shard viewing floors for cocktails in the evening. The flat is just around the corner from access to both taxis and buses going to all parts of the city.
All in all we had a wonderful 3 weeks in a well-appointed flat in a wonderful area of London.
Second stay here and it was as good as the first - thanks again for your kind hospitality!
Despite having to change our arrival date Samantha and her family were very understanding and accommodating.
The house is lovely, the pool looked great and we enjoyed tasty food from the local restaurant at the end for the road.
We would recommended staying here ( in fact we are going back in a couple of weeks:)
All in all very good indeed - Thank you!
The flat was tidy and everything was as shown on the profile. The neighbourhood is very quiet and safe.
My family and I spent four days at this stunning villa, and I recommend it 100% to anyone visiting Colombo! I have to sing its praises, but where do I begin? Centrally located in a quiet suburb, a ten-minute drive away to downtown attractions and shopping, Sri Lankan eateries and convenience stores a stone's throw away, and tuk-tuks aplenty when you need them. But it is very likely you will enter this villa and not want to step out to go see the rest of Colombo! At least that's what happened to us. We spent hours in the beautifully appointed courtyard, the pool was a lovely bonus, and the living and dining rooms were great spaces to hang out. The highlight of our stay here was the authentic and delectable Sri Lankan cuisine we devoured, thanks to Mano, Shanthi & Kanthi (cooks and caretaker). They were hospitable and kind, allowed us to accompany them to the local market and served us meals fit for royalty. Thanks to this villa, I'm definitely going back to SL!
Samantha is an amazing host. I hadn't the opportunity to meet her personally, but she wrote me everything in details and responded immediately to every question or request by us. She send me complete information about the area, stops, the Internet, etc.
The apartment is really gorgeous, even nicer than on the pictures. It is spacious, with lots of art elements, great books, music and movies. The kitchen is fully equipped (there is a microwave already).
The area is very picturesque. The two tube stations - London Bridge and Tower are 15 minutes walk, where there is convenient access to all of London and surrounding areas.
I strongly recommend this flat to all!
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?
