Nelun is a sweet hostess but her place is dark n dingy unlike the projected photographs.The house gives an antique feel unlike the photographs which give u a modern feel.The only plus point is it is centrally located.

Response from Nelun:
i am so sorry that you did not like our home kiran. our sitting room is about 1500 sq ft which includes two open to sky areas with trees. i dont know what you mean by dark and dingy. yes, its not a modern house but it has character and style and lots of light and this is reflected in the photographs taken by the airbnb staff. i recall you saying you stayed at the cinnamon grand hotel the last time you were in colombo, maybe this is more your style. in fact i was wondering why you chose to stay at a cheap airbnb if you stayed at a hotel last time. anyway it was a pleasure hosting you and best regards

You know an artist's place when you see one. Nelun's place feels like a mini art gallery. The room was comfortable and tastefully done. Her dogs are the most friendliest dogs I have ever come across. Both, Nelun and her husband were very warm and helpful. Wish we had time to stay longer!

Very comfortable and friendly stay. Nelun is so warm and welcoming that you feel as if you are meeting a family member. She helped us better our itinerary. Prepared awesome breakfast. Room was amazingly comfortable and the house very spacious. Wshroom were clean. You feel an instant connect with Nelun and her husband ... So much so that I really feel bad for the fact that I couldn't meet her when I was leaving the other morning. Highly recommended for singles/couples/families. Thanks Nelun... Hoping to see you soon

She was warm and hospitable. We reached late at 10 and she welcomed with a chilled juice which was refreshing. My husband chose the house as he was impressed looking at the pictures. She has 3 pet dogs which was harmless. She made us feel at home and left the kitchen to us to make anything we need. We made Maggie for us and slept off. There was hot water in the bathroom. This was the only place where we got such hot refreshing shower. She was quite excited that we were from India and made us comfortable to speak to her. Her house is beautiful. It was relaxing time for us after a hectic travel in Srilanka.

Our flight got delayed and we got to Nelun's place late in the evening and tired. Nelun received us with great warmth and made us feel at home in her lovely home. Nelun and her husband Laxman were wonderful people. Nelun invited us to join their family in dinner, seeing how tired we were. It was a lovely dinner. The room was large, very clean and welcoming. The bathroom too was spacious and very clean. Her staff made lovely breakfast. Nelun, thank you for everything. We are sure to stay with you next time we are in Colombo and I am sure that we will be back. This trip was too short to enjoy everything that Sri Lanka has to offer. Laxman is a great photographer and my husband enjoed looking through the coffee table books filled with his photographs
