The flat has 2 bedrooms with adjacent bathrooms. Clean and fully equpped. It's however an hour away from the airport, but once you're there, you'll have a marvellous beach 3 minutes walking distance away, lots of restaurants, shops, bars around. Its not a particularly quiet place, but thats due to the railway between the beach and the hotels/flats.
The bedrooms have a/c, you don't wanna sleep w/o it.
I enjoyed the stay very much

“Great Location- Quiet but easy access to city centre and the south.”

It was the perfect place for us to unwind after the long flight. In a nice neighbourhood it is spacious, comfortable , well equipped , air conditioned and good Wifi. It is a 10 minute walk to the beach and 20 minutes to the shops or the railway station which gives easy access to the city centre and for trains heading south.
The owner Tharinda lives next door is a very nice man. He was extremely helpful and even kept in touch during our travels to check that all was ok.

When we return to Colombo we hope to stay here again.

The apartment was clean and very spacious and ideally located in Mount Lavinia just a short stroll to the beach. The best thing about anyone wishing to stay here is Tharinda the owner. He was always on hand either by phone or in person to answer any questions and genuinely wanted to ensure our stay was as enjoyable as possible. He put us in touch with our van driver 'Uncle' who took us on a three day adventure (absolutely amazing). Thanks Tharinda wish we could have stayed longer.
