Excellent homestay, great hosts, comfortable and convenient for airport arrival and departure”
Upul and Yonie are charming hosts, and their house is clean and comfortable. They cooked us a delicious local dish called Kottu, and shared other delicacies too. For $10USD Upul drove us to the airport at 5am for our 7am flight. Cant praise this option enough, they deserve all the ratings they have and will continue to get. Many thanks from Fraser and Rona
Fraisr and Rona are genuine couple who are very friendly and flexible. Fraiser thank you for the quick review while having holidays in Maldives. Wish you great wedding anniversary and next time I will care you more. BbR Upul
Excellent clean and friendly accommodation, very very happy ”
Our stay with Upul was exceptional. We stayed in a room in his home which was spotlessly clean. He picked us up from the airport for $10 which was great. And showed us where to get a Sri Lankan SIM card and dropped us at the bus stop the next morning. He cooked us an amazing big breakfast with Sri Lankan specialities and we met his lovely family. It was a great experience and we would definitely stay with Upul again. Thank you Upul!
Cassie Smith and Holger Vogt ,thank you for the genuine review while having busy schedule to travel.This couple were very friendly genuine guest and wonderfully enjoyable.There stay with us were very happy time and Cassie was very generous to gift us a novel.I love to hoat them again, Best regards Cassie and Holger
Perfect start to our trip”
We were collected by the owner promptly, taken to his lovely property where he took the time to show us around and get us a glass of water despite how late our flight was. His wife prepared a beautiful breakfast in the morning where we sampled a few local dishes. More western dishes were also available, but we hardly touched them, the Sri Lankan dishes were fantastic. We have travelled quite a bit and this is one of nicest experiences we have had. The perfect start to our trip.
Hi Eoin Dawson and Daniel, First of all thank you very much for the review,While having tight schedule to travel within few days you remembered our hospitality to write a review.You were friendly lovely couple we have met and hope to see you kind of real guest again. Best regards Upul
Warm and friendly homestay”
We had a very brief stay in Sri Lanka and spending it at Upul's place made it exceptionally pleasant. I chose the homestay based on close proximity to the airport, price and positive reviews. We received all that was promised (cleanness, nice new place, comfortable bad, etc.). Though we had very inconvenient arrival and departure time, the hosts were there to help us. Still, the most important thing for us is the feeling of a true home stay. Upul's family made sure we felt welcomed and at home. Thank you all for the kindest reception and a great time we spent with you!
Hi Natalia, Thank you very much for the genuine review while facing sadness of a tragic incident. Hope to meet you and your loving husband this year. I recommend this couple as a super guest. Upul
A beautiful house and stay with beautiful people. I CANNOT RECOMMEND MORE HIGHLY”
I made this booking as was one of the cheaper options on offer close to the airport. But I got much more than expected. I arrived at the house at 1am, an hour later due to a flight delay, to Upul standing at the gate with a friendly smile. I was introduced to a perfect room is this lovely high-ceiled property. The bed so super comfortable, with a great mosquito net (you'll see what I mean - not one of those tent like ones that collapse on you!) then was served a wonderful Sri Lankan breakfast prepared by his wife and friends, alongside great conversation and his beautiful daughter bouncing around the place, before Upul kindly dropped me to the train station as I had to get to Colombo. I was not long in their company but had many lovely conversations and smiles. Next time I will for sure stay longer and explore the local area while enjoying the family's kind hospitality. Thanks you friends. Lewis x

The room was very clean with installed mosquito net. My wife and I had a nice sleep without mosquito bite. The host was very good and friendly. He provided delicious breakfast. We loved it. The host has a little daughter with him, so it's very safe to say there.

Upul und seine Familie sind tolle und hilfsbereite Gastgeber. Das Haus liegt in einer ruhigen und vornehmen Gegend und ist einfach beeindruckend. Wir sind angekommen und haben uns sofort wohlgefühlt. Zum Flughafen öde auch zum Strand sind es nur wenige Minuten. Wir können die Unterkunft wirklich bedenkenlos empfehlen.
