    Un petit coin de paradis”

    We stayed at Villa Shade on our first and last day or our 2016 Sri Lanka trip. it has been at both occasion a very nice stay. the staff is very helpful, especially the owner, Shiraj, and his wife. The bungalows are very nicely done and clean. The garden is great for small children with a very nice pool to relax and a small pitch for badminton and basketball. The tree house will attract the kids during breakfast so the parents can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. Shiraj did everything possible in order to make our stay a memorable one. He made research for us on the net and sent us information as we were on our trip. Great hosts, beautiful, quiet place!

    The perfect way to start your trip to Sri Lanka”

    There could not be a better way to start (or end) your trip to Sri Lanka! The villas are beautiful and large enough for our family of 5. The grounds are lush and tropical with lots to do for the kids. We arrived in the middle of the night and we were able to relax in the morning by the pool while our kids played in the treehouse. Our host at villa shade made sure everything was perfect and the breakfast was fantastic.

    Awesome find”

    Villa shade was our first stop on our 2 week holiday in Sri Lanka with two young children and our au pair. We had one room with 2 beds and a cot which made it very affordable. The room was great and we had an outdoor shower. The garden treehouse was a highlight for our daughter whilst the gorgeous pool satisfied the whole family. We had breakfast in the shade of the trees of the garden with entertainment from the resident squirrels negotiating rooftops, cables and branches.It was just an overnight stay after arriving at Colombo airport late at night but well worth it. The airport transfer was hassle free and good value. The next day we left for Colombo and again the transfer was really easy. It is a beautiful spot in amongst palm tall trees on a quiet street and a real treat so close to the airport. Highly recommended!

    We should visit Villa Shade again!! We only stayed there for first night in Sri Lanka this time but we'd like to come back and stay several nights there again. They are located between Negombo city and airport, not much things around, you need to take took-tuk/bus/taxi to get around. BUT, the place was awesome. You can enjoy Sri Lankan breakfast in the garden with tree house. And the rooms are in the beautiful garden and each rooms are like cottage. And they are building a swimming pool now:) We arrived airport at 2a.m. so we asked Villa Shade to arrange a taxi (16USD) to pick up up. the driver was waiting for us holding our name on board. The driver was very nice and we could feel safe. We took bus from Villa Shade to the Station(not Negombo Sta....Milgama?maybe) and took train to Kandy next day.

    Extremely kind and friendly staff, amazing value, beautiful and peaceful place

    My wife and I stayed here for one night at the end of our 2 week honeymoon; what a relaxing and peaceful way to finish our trip! The owners and staff are extremely kind and friendly, we stayed in one of the bungalows which was beautiful and immaculately clean. The whole place is really beautiful and tastefully designed and decorated (the inside/outside shower in the bungalow was ace! It's located down a quiet side-street off one of the main roads in Negombo and the properties are set in a beautiful walled garden so you feel as if you're in a nice little haven. The dinner (rice and curry)and breakfast were delicious (better than many of the more expensive places we stayed). We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Villa Shade; thanks Deepika, Shiraj, Sades and Ram :)

We bought some constant noodles and cooked in the chicken by ourselves. It is also a good experience. They have every thing in the chicken for your cooking.

    It was one of our best memory during our travel in Sri Lanka. The owners are a Christian family who tried their best to help us during our stay. Thanks to their help we found a very good and cheap driver helpped us all the way during our stay in Lanka. The free bicycles supplied by the owner gave us a good riding experience although we got lost on the way to beach! Higly recommend for family stay in Sri Lanka.

    What a fantastic way to end my stay in Sri Lanka. I arrived late and in the pouring rain and the owners went out of their way to make sure I had transport to the airport arranged for very early in the morning and also helped me order pizza for delivery. Additionally, they upgraded my room to an amazing apartment with an indoor/outdoor bathroom- fantastic! They even went the extra mile to get up and see me off so early in the morning with a packed breakfast to take with me. Would most defiantly book again!

Villa Shade was o quiet and peaceful that we stayed an extra night to get ready for our trip around Sri Lanka. Siraji and Deedee made us very welcome and made sure we were taken care of.

    Our best experience in Sri Lanka”

    Friendly, feels like home, well crafted food

    After our arrival in Sri Lanka, Villa Shade was our first accommodation. We were welcomed with open arms by the guesthouse owner (in the middle of the night). This guesthouse has a wonderful garden with king- and normal coconut trees. The staff were perfectly instructed to make our stay as pleasant as possible. From the first day on we felt like we were in our own home. That made us decide we wanted to end our journey in Villa Shade too. And so we did. After three weeks of intensive traveling we came back, and were again, welcomed with open arms. Villa Shade is about 4km from the restaurants and diners on Lewis Place (beach side). This distance is perfectly manageable with a three-wheeler. About 250rs. The staff will call you one that picks you up to go where you want to go. The Villa itself is in a quite side-street of the Katana Road. Every day we were asked what time we wanted breakfast. The next morning a well-crafted breakfast was waiting for us at the agreed time. If you want to stay for dinner, it's not a problem. Just tell so one day in advance and the best crafted Sri Lankan dishes will be made for you! This text does not nearly describe the perfect stay we had at Villa Shade, cause there's a lot more to tell. Unfortunately than it wouldn't fit the page. When we go back to Sri Lanka, we'll make sure to stay at Villa Shade again. I would recommend this guesthouse to anyone that plans a trip to Sri Lanka!
