I am the son of the couple (pictured) whose flat is being advertised. I am a research assistant at Cambridge university and my parents are living in peradeniya, Kandy, Sri Lanka. They were both living and working in the UK for over a decade and have retired from accountancy and scientific research. Both of them are fluent in English and my mother has lived in many different places abroad and can speak German. They are both very polite and having lived in different countries, know the needs of both local and foreign tourists and will help in any way they can.
