You will share the common space with myself and one other person. There is a nice clean living room, a small kitchen and a dining area.
The washroom is shared with another room/person.

The apartment is conveniently located just steps away from a large grocery/liquor store on Marine Dr. and is just down the street from Galle Rd, where you will find plenty of excellent restaurants and shops.

Sumitra is really nice. I love the place because it is near everything a tourist would want. I have been here for a month and starting to learn about different areas. Definitely this is the best. Nice cool air, safe and best of all free wifi. I eat with sumitra and begins to crave for Sri Lankan food if I don't have daily. Several nice restaurants are nearby. Definitely recommend spice coast restaurant for non vegetarian and greenlands for vegetarian. Get the ghee dosa masala. It is the best and inexpensive. In fact, most foods are inexpensive in Colombo.

Sumitra was a wonderful host and made me feel very welcome in her home. The apartment itself was very clean and tidy with a housekeeper visiting daily to do laundry, clean and cook. The room is spacious and came equipped with very reliable wifi, a nice desk, a dresser and a TV. Probably my favourite part of the room was the view. As the apartment is literally 30 meters to the ocean, I could step out onto the balcony directly from my room and watch the beautiful ocean with a coffee in hand often with a refreshing breeze on my face. The apartment was spacious and has three bedrooms - so 1 room for you, one for Sumitra and one for another tenant who was also tidy and wonderful to live with. Other great features included having a washroom with hot water all to myself (there are three washrooms in the apartment total) and the fact that there was always wonderful Sri Lankan food on offer for a very small price, should I want to save time and money by eating at home. And of course when I was craving my own home cooked food, the kitchen facilities and fridge gave me a chance to bring in my own items from the grocery store located just below the apartment and cook for myself. Sumitra was a great source of local knowledge and often gave me helpful advice on which bus to catch and what markets to go to. She definitely helped make my experience at the apartment a great one!

Hi my name is Sumitra and I have recently started using AirBnB, although I have rented out several rooms in my apartment before.

I was born in Sri Lanka but spent 20 years in the U.S. teaching at a Montessori School in California. I have recently returned to Colombo, Sri Lanka for my retirement.

I like hosting people from all over the world because it's great to learn about other cultures and show people my own.

My interests including cooking, teaching English and Singhala, reading and travelling!
