Hi there! Welcome to our page. We like travel and culture. Most of the time we are at home and happy to share our experiences from around town and the island see you soon!
Presanna and Chandrika are amazing hosts. We arrived late at night and it was't a problem. Room is nice and private with free tea, coffee and water. Fast wifi is also available. Great, quiet place in a good location.
Such a great place in the perfect location around Colombo. Very clean and comfortable room.
Basic but very clean room with a little nice garden in front of the room! Water, coffee and tea available for free. Very helpful host, printed map of the district, good for orientation! Nothing to complain about, great location and amiable guests! Can totally recommend for low budget travellers and backpackers! Thanks for the nice stay
Beautiful home peaceful and quiet yet in the heart of Colombo, within walking distance of major attractions like Barefoot and Geoffrey Bawa's house. Prasanna and Chandrika were the lovelliest people open and welcoming freely sharing breakfast, tea, books off their own personal shelves and stories of life in Sri Lanka. Chandrika has even made a very handy map to help her guests manoeuvre the streets of Colombo and all she has to offer. I felt very much at home, staying with Prasanna and Chandrika was simply the right end to my trip of Sri Lanka. Many thanks.
Honestly, there's nothing even vaguely negative I could mention - so I'm just going to list up the outstandingly positive aspects of the "homestay":
Very clean room & bathroom, extremely friendly and helpful hosts! Perfectly working ceiling fan, refridgerator and electric kettle on the room. Chandrika and Prasanna's room had everything we needed. As mentioned in other reviews, the house is situated in Colombo's 4th district - a safe and nice area of Sri Lanka's biggest city. It's only a five minute walk to the ocean, and it doesn't take any longer to walk to a mall, supermarket or several restaurants and food vendors. Still, the city centre is just a few kilometers away, the easiest way is to get a Tuktuk-ride into town (~15 minutes, usually less than 300 Rupees/2.30$).
In addition to all of the features above, Chandrika offered us tea, juices and provided "weapons" against mosquitos - all of this without us asking or expecting it :)
To the future visitors: There's nothing I could think of about this room that could possibly make a bad impression on you. Huge recommendation, go for it!
Prasanna and Chandrika were amazing! They were extremely flexible and helpful during our stay with them! We really enjoyed all of the places they recommended in Colombo. The location was great and the room was very comfy! We also really appreciated all of their honest help on transportation!
Prasanna & Chandrika were so much of a great help as they kindly agreed to book in advance for us train tickets so that we wouldn't have to worry about our way to Kandy. Thanks again.
Room is nice and next to the main house so it's like having our own place! Nice experience, next to the main roads, fair walking distance and tuktuk available at the door!
tres bon sejour chez Prasana et Chandrika, la maison est bien située et c'est un endroit tranquille, nous vous la recommandons à tous points de vue. A very good place to stay few days in Colombo, quiet place with quiet people. Nothing is very far. You can choose this homestay.
I had a very nice stay with Prasanna and Chandrika. Nice private room and lovely to sit outside in the garden. They were helpful finding my way around in Colombo.
Prasanna and Chandrika's Homestay is a little haven close to the centre of Colombo and was perfect for my arrival and introduction to Colombo. Both Prasanna and Chandrika were very kind and helpful and I would certainly recommend their guest room to any travellers wanting a clean comfortable and safe place to stay.
I’ve known Prasanna & Chandrika for a long time, and they are dear friends of mine. Their home is centrally located providing easy access to Galle Road, Marine Drive, the beach, cafes, restaurants, shopping arcades, cinemas, the railway station and bus stops. All within walking distance. It’s a fantastic place to stay and access Colombo.
Their newly renovated room is very comfortable for two people to stay, in privacy and in comfort. A separate entrance to the room from the garden, private bathroom with hot water, Wi-Fi access, parking facility and the safe location are some of the facilities that guests will enjoy.
Prasanna & Chandrika are warm, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful hosts. If you are looking for comfort, privacy, safety and enjoyment, I highly recommend Prasanna and Chandrika's Homestay.
After a long day of discovering beautiful Colombo, you’ll love coming back to your room.
