“The quality of rental I would hope to find whenever I travel”
Reviewed 15 March 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Clean and well maintained house sett in its own large private and secure garden. The kitchen is equipped with the best range of utensils and crockery we have found in many years of holiday rentals, important if you are long stay. The owners family live next door and their local knowledge and willingness to help was a bonus that we much appreciated they made our stay most enjoyable. Panadura does not seem to attract a lot of tourists but it is well served by bus and train links to Columbo and the South of the country. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday where you can also experience local life this is an ideal location

“Home away from home”

A wonderful place with a beautiful garden! It is wonderful waking up to the sound of birds and squirrels and yet so close to everything. Velu, the caretaker is a gem, and the family could not have been more welcoming and friendly. Thank you Nilan for a wonderful experience one that I will not forget in a long long time.

We are very pleased to note that you and your family have had an enjoyable and memorable stay at the Panadura Holiday Home. We endeavour as much as possible, to make it a home away from home for our guests, so that they could be completely relaxed and savour even in a small way, what Sri Lanka has to offer.
We appreciate very much your glowing review, and will be updating the kitchen with the utensils requested for. It would be our pleasure to welcome you back to the Panadura Holiday Home in the near future.

“authentic, quiet but still close to town”

The house is located in the north of Panadura in a quiet side street close to the main road. The street is lit well in the night. In walking distance you can reach all stores and shops you will need for daily use. There is a supermarket being built just around the corner, so in a couple of weeks it will be even easier to buy all kind of food. Panadura is not a tourism town, so there are no restaurants, bars or shops for tourism as usual. We knew this and it was our own decision to live quiet and authentically for 6 months. We were lucky to find this house.
The neighborhood is very pleasant. Relatives of the owner are living in the house next door. When we had any questions or problems, we could always ask there. We loved there kindness and they always were of help.
Around the house and the garden is a wall and the main gate is closed permanently. So we felt safe and well. On one side of the house there is a big terrace and it is so beautiful to sit and watch the squirrels, birds and butterflies. The garden is carefully being managed by a housekeeper, who lives at the property also. The man is also cleaning the house once a week, is changing the towels and bed linen.
The house has a big living room which contains a big sofa to watch TV. In the other part of the room there is a big table for 6 – 8 persons. On the ceiling there is a big fan. The living room has two double bedrooms (one with A/C) attached. Between the two bedrooms is a big bathroom with a comfortable shower cabin. We didn’t use these two rooms because we only were two persons, but those two rooms can be rented extra.
On the other end of the living room is another big double bedroom with A/C and a large wall closet. This bedroom has its own big bathroom. Next to the bedroom there is the kitchen. The kitchen is great! I loved cooking in this kitchen, because there is plenty of room to prepare the meal. There is a cooker (gas and electric), an oven and a large fridge with a big freezer, so you can put a lot of food and drinks into it. In the kitchen you find a microwave, a mixer, a toaster and a rice cooker, but unfortunately no coffee machine. The water is drinkable, because the water is filtered but we cooked the water nevertheless.
Free Wi-Fi is included, which was an important issue for us. Because we wanted to watch English TV the owner bought a cable TV Connection for us.
Besides the house there is also a washing machine, but we didn’t use it. We always took our dirty clothes to a laundry nearby because it is very cheap here.
All in all we can strongly recommend the house to everybody who likes to live quiet but wants to have shops around for daily needs.
