We stayed in this apartment for nearly two weeks with three children and I can only agree with what other guests have said in their reviews: it is an affordable, nice & simple little apartment in a great location - within walking distance to the beautiful Mount Lavinia Beach, and also restaurants, swimming pools and shops are all nearby.
Thanks to Tharinda. You have made this trip very special to me. wife and my kids loved it.
Keep in touch.
We stayed in this apartment for nearly two weeks with two children and I can only agree with what other guests have said in their reviews: it is an affordable, nice & simple little apartment in a great location - within walking distance to the beautiful Mount Lavinia Beach, and also restaurants, swimming pools and shops are all nearby. The landlord is extremely friendly, helpful and hospitable. It is a great base from which to explore the city and its surroundings.
My girlfriend and I stayed our first nights in Sri Lanka with another couple at Tharinda's place. It's a nice place at the beach a short cheap train ride away from the busy city center of Colombo. Perfect after a long flight and to escape the hectic Colombo. Everything you need is there. From a fridge to a washing machine to airconditioning.
The greatest asset to this accomodation is the owner himself. Tharinda is a great host who showed us around, helped us to plan our trip, and was available even after our stay to provide us with information or to help us with any problem. We could call him anytime.
We would definitely recommend this place!
Just want to say thank Tharinda and his family are very hospitable. Gave us advices on how best to get there, met and gave thee drink delicious tea. To begin with, when you go to Sri Lanka, you go to a completely different culture, and we must understand that they live in a different way. This is not Europe and not cluttered with furniture apartments, like we have. You will not find carpet in the apartment, walls are just painted, and the bathroom is likely to be made of concrete. We really liked the apartment! All clean and tidy, each bedroom is air-conditioned, two bathrooms and hot water. Internet worked fine too. About the bathroom of concrete. Incredibly comfortable, and for my taste very cool look. We really liked the shower. Little nice pluses - daylight and pebbles (looks very nice). Separate big plus - the location. The excellent beach is just a 3-minute walk . Tharinda and his family helped us in everything: in the first place - tips (what to see, where that is), helped to call a taxi and even dragged the sofa in the living room (which by the way is very convenient), changed bedclothes and do wet cleaning. The location is great for a family or just for friends in one room king size bed, the second twin. Refrigerator, microwave, kettle, ovens, stove - everything worked fine. Even an umbrella for the beach was.There ware not mosquitoes at all (a couple of pieces in 10 days is not considered) In general, only positive impressions. For what we thank you all! Feel free to write Tharinda right now and book. He is a great person who will help you in everything and will do his best to ensure that all would be comfortable and convenient. All you need: to ask.
