My place is close to Colombo city, zoo, major hospitals, public transport. My place is good for couples, business travelers, and families (with kids).
The host was very friendly and helped with any requests or advice we needed. The house was worth every penny, I especially loved the long balcony running along one side of the house, it was pleasant to just sit ad chill there in the evening enjoying the weather. Locality is great, it is almost midway between the heart of Colombo and Mount Lavinia, so it was easy to get to places. Also there are major food joints within a 10-15 minute walk and two supermarkets within 5 mins walk. Would recommend!
