Kindly host rescues us.
We arrived at an Agoda booked place that was closed. Seems there are a few privately operated rentals in this development. Agoda helped us to find this alternative to which we could walk. We arrived to the surprise of the hostess but she welcomed us and got a tuk to a Nearby restaurant. Also managed a great breakfast if hopers on little notice.

very nice, very warm, feeling like living at home

caring, cleaning, food
It's a very nice cottage, although a little bit far from the center of the city, but there is quiet, comfortable, and has a beautiful enviroment. living here, you will feel as warm as at home. Mrs. Ivy is a very nice old woman, she is caring and enthusiastic. the last day, I had to check out in 4am,she still prepared breakfast for me and packed it very well. If I go to Sri Lanka again, I will choose this cottage again.

You should try this. It was best expirience in Sri-Lanka. Best hotel. The owners are very nice and kind. They perfectly speaks english. They helping you in any way. House located in a restricted area and maybe a little hard to find by tuk-tuk drivers. House looks very modern and clean. Bed is very comfy and wifi is speedy. I liked it alot after crazy dirty hotels in willigama =)

The hotel with grate hospitality

Delicious Breakfast with Exotic fruit and juice, Simplicity and quality, Hospitality
The cottage is located in a luxury housing scheme and well secured place. Its landscape is really beautiful. We stayed over 10 days of our holiday. Every morning we were enjoyed by their delicious breakfasts and exotic fruits. Owner, his wife and members of staff are very friendly and helpful. The place is ultimately clean. We would like to mention that their internet service is excellent. We paid our holidays with their grate hospitality. If you wish to pay your holiday in Sri Lanka, you select this place for at least two days and get this awesome experience.

Clean and charming.

Large clean room and ensuite.
A beautiful home with welcoming guests. My room was very large as was the ensuite. The rooms are spotless. I had an early flight and so did not get to try the breakfast. The house is within an estate on Andives road between the railway line and the church. My tuk tuk driver had difficulty getting us there. There's nothing to do in the area, Negombo beach seemed too dirty to swim in and there are some restaurants about 1.5kms up the road. My 4:30am trip to the airport took 20mins and cost 800 rupee, organised by the host.
