over rated, over priced disaster.
My wife and i were booked for 9 nights and our girls for 4. We left after just 2 nights very disappointed. Although booked months ago we were not expected. Bedroom floors were not clean. We had to request towels and were given just 2 bath towels which were dull and aged as was the bedding. Toiletries were lacking. No door key was available for the second bedroom. In the master bedroom the airconditioner did not work properly. The toilet was not operating properly upon arrival and stopped completly on the second day. There was no refrigerator or tea/coffee making facilities. There was no bar and all food and drinks were sent out for as required. There was no menu and we were asked what we would like for our meals. We were not fully understood and an ordered fried egg was served as an omlette. Most unsatisfactory. Access to the warerway, which had floating rubbish, was limited as houses are built either side of the property and fenced to the waters edge. Overall terribly disappointing and certainly greatly overpriced.

Food and friendliness of staff
Important to mention that this was a bed and breakfast/house. There was no mention of that on the website! It was very difficult to find. Once found it kind of seemed like the middle of nowhere. It was peaceful and quiet. The food was amazing! The room was comfortable. The only issue was the tv turned on I the middle of the night. The staff was very friendly and helpful. If you like a quiet place away from the city this place is great.

It was good one night stay with friends.

Clean, Nice and friendly staff
It was a good one night. Had privacy and all. Kitchen was closed bit early. So had to order food outside. But had good time in the pool with friends. The Room was ok. Didn't come across any issues. Hopefully visit again for a short stay when I come back. Price needs to reduce little bit.

Clean and great view of wetlands

Clean, located in Nugegoda, and friendly staff
The room and bathroom were very large with a great view over a wetlands area that contained many large monitor lizards and birds. The room was clean and only had two rooms. As there were no other guests, we had the entire house to ourselves for the two nights we stayed in late July 2013. This villa is located outside of Colombo near the Parliament building, which is about a 30 min Rickshaw drive from the city center. However for us, we wanted to be in the quiet Negombo area. Make sure you bring directions on how to get here as it is slightly difficult to find.
