“I want to come back !!”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

After 5 months in Annesmaisonette, the return at home is not so easy. We were so fine in the house and feel like home. I really miss also Mahen's dinners, I will ask to Anne some of receipes : aubergines withe curry, chicken massala, pumpkins, dhal... Hummm !! I really recommand this place for the people who really want to discover sri lanka way of life. Karapitya and of course Annemaisonette is the place to keep in mind. When I could, I come back there as soon as possible .

I stayed at Anne's Maisonette for a few weeks while working in Galle. Getting to the city required a 20-30 minute bus ride, but at the end of each day I was always more than happy to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city and escape to this quiet residential neighborhood. The room was an incredible value - more of an apartment suite, it included a bedroom with big airy windows, bed net, fan, desk, and locking closet; full bathroom; living room where I would take my tea and meals; and a peaceful balcony. Meals were prepared by Anne and her husband, and they were always top-notch. The best part of the stay was the family's friendliness; they really helped me to feel comfortable and to get to know Sri Lanka as a local instead of a tourist. Anne is incredibly knowledgeable and helped me to book tuktuks around town and a car to the airport, and she was able to help me plan bus rides and accommodations in other parts of Sri Lanka. If you want to stay in a quiet spacious place and get to know Sri Lanka, I have no hesitations recommending Anne's Maisonette. It can be tricky to find the first time, so I'd recommend asking Anne to set up a tuktuk ride from the bus stand or train station.

Anne Maisonnette is a beautiful and safe place to stay in Galle to discover and enjoy the real sri lankan way of life. We stayed in the flat for 4 months and during this period Anne and her family really took care of us : laundry, bikes, travellings tips, and of course sri lankan typical food (or western food if you request) cooked by the husband who is a really good "cordon bleu"!
The location is also ideal if you want to discover Galle and the surroundings.
We really recommend this place if you want to travel close to sri lankan people!
