We had a nice stay at Anomi's place. It is quiet and away from the Colombo hustle. Breakfast was also very nice. We had a small, two-level room. The bathroom was on the first level, separated only be a staircase from the bedroom on 2nd level. Everything else was great. Anomi even helped booking train tickets for us.

The facility is really good, clean and quiet. It is not so far from central area when you use taxi or tuktuk. The stair is spiral, so it is not easy to take suit case to the room.

Hi Tetsushi... Thanks for your kind words... I will definitely give you a downstair room since you are carrying a very big suitcase... Since you are a businessman that way will suit more... Good Luck on your business deals... Warm Regards.. Anomi

We were unfortunately able to only say one night at Palm Nest - 2 to 3 would have been more appropriate. Arriving late in pouring rain, we were immediately made to feel at home. We hadn't eaten and Anomi offered to arrange for a driver to deliver food for us. In passing, Anomi indicated that she would have cooked for us with advanced notice. We slept well and enjoyed a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast in the morning. An excellent alternative to an hotel and a great way to start a Sri Lankan holiday.

The place is very peaceful and clean. Anomi is always nice with you and really cares for your comfort. It was also nice to meet Vipul and get some country music for breakfast ! We found it a bit expansive in regard of our budget, so everyone will make his own appreciation.

I spent three days and 2 nights at Palm Nest and I really felt at home. Anomi and her husband were warm and very friendly and helped as much as they could to make my stay wonderful. The place is really peaceful, calm and realxing. It is located at 20 to 25 min by tuk tuk from the inner city of Colombo and roughly one hour from the airport. If you wish to spend just one or two days in Colombo and searching for a warm and cosy guesthouse, just go to Palm Nest !

Anomi s'est mise en quatre pour nous rendre le séjour agréable et nous aider dans l'organisation de notre séjour. La maison est propre et bien tenue. La localisation est un peu éloignée du centre de Colombo mais le quartier est agréable et beaucoup moins étouffant.

I am 51 years old, married and have a daughter who is settled down in Australia. Myself and my husband were Bankers by profession and worked 28 years in a leading Bank in Sri Lanka.

Since I love to travel I got the opportunity to associate different type of people.
I like to entertain people and be friendly with them.Sometime they have become best of friends. Most of the time I get myself satisfied by helping people in numerous ways.

I like cooking and to taste various types of dishes. Lots of people have given good cooments about my food. My favourite manu is sri lankan Rice and Curry with "fish ambulthial" and my favourite dessert is "Chocolate Moose"

I like to be active always. I used to begin the day with a long walk.

I am very capable in doing cross-stitch, patch work, and sewing. I have gifted cross stitch wall hangings to my friends as well as relations on different occassions.

I also like singing, dancing and watching nice family movies. I really enjoyed the movie "Ma ma Mia".

I love to host people and to give them the most comfortable and memorable stay at my place.

I extremely thankful to Airbnb for their efforts to provide such a beautiful service to people who love to travel.
