The front yard is very breezy and shady. Very quiet with a wide view. An ideal place to sit and read. A fridge and microwave is available in the kitchen with basic utensils. Plus a tea/coffee corner is available in the living room.
Guests have access to the spaces within the house and yard.
Interaction with guests
We are always open to inquiries and food/entertainment recommendations. Depending on the times, we are available to show the guests around town and hang out.
The neighborhood is highly residential but within 5 minutes walking distance to the main road where there is access to central colombo by tuk or bus or cabs. There is a supermarket, local market with plenty of supplies, clothing stores, ATMs, several small restaurants that is 10- 15 minutes' walking distance.
We have found the new app - Pick Me ( android and iOS), to be very useful even for our travel needs. You can choose between tuk, mini cars and full size sedans that are available in the area. On location pick up with their own trip meter. Very reasonable prices.
Since the property is in a residential area, we would prefer guests to keep noise to a decent level with no loud music and rowdy behavior. We expect the guests to lock up the gates and house in the night. Smoking and drinking is tolerated provided you act decently. We would prefer it if the smoking occurred in the yard rather than inside the house. We expect the household electric appliances to be treated with due care. Basically, if you act decently, everything will be great!
