We stayed in this 7th floor, air-conditioned apartment for eight days at the end of January on a trip from New York to visit my mother. We were very happy with the apartment.
A highlight was the unobstructed ocean view from two of the three bedrooms and from the kitchen - lovely to wake up to! My mother stayed with us and had her own ocean view and bathroom.
The owner Mr. Hettige and his representative in Colombo Mr. Lakshman were extremely accessible, friendly and responsive to our needs. Mr. Lakshman was on premises when we arrived and kept checking in to make sure we had everything we needed.
We required reliable internet connectivity as I had to keep working while on vacation. Not only was there free wifi but we were also provided with a wired ethernet connection. The location was great - near the beach, shops and restaurants. The cost of the apartment included all utilities which was great given the amount of air-conditioning we used during what was an unseasonably hot month.
The building itself was modern and secure with 24/7 security and parking. This was important to us as we did a lot of day traveling and were able to confidently leave our computers behind..
We did not cook while there, but the kitchen was available and equipped with the basics. All in all the apartment more than met our needs and was good value for money.
