“Wonderful place with excellent host”
Reviewed 17 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015
people found this review helpful

From the first moment we arrived at Somapala's place until the end of our 4 days stay, we had the best services and hospitality ever. Me, my wife and our baby girl are so grateful to Somapala and his wife for making our stay at Galle such a wonderful experience.
The private apartment at the first floor was in a mint condition with every single amenity you could imagine, you name it. And if not available, just ask and they will do their best to help you. Honestly, it would take a lot of time to list all what's supplied in the apartment. We even had a lot of baby toys and a stairs protection fence installed in no time.
That was the perfect blend of privacy and host availability for any help or advice.
Special thanks to the tenant's wife who was so sweet and kind with so many touching attentions.
That is by far the best value for money rental I had in all my travels. I won't hesitate to rent the same place if I return to Sri Lanka someday, especially with my family.

“An ideal apartment, good location, and also perfect as a base from which to explore this area of Sri Lanka.”

I have stayed here on two occasions in the past year for a month and for three months. It is an ideal, well equipped and spacious apartment within walking distance of Galle Fort and the local town. Mr Somapala and his family are attentive hosts and ensure that the provision is always to their guests liking and are always ready to support visitors in any way they can.
The rooms are spacious, light and comfortable with an added feature of a shaded veranda looking out to the street. The ocean is three minutes from the end of the short cul de sac at bottom of the road.
I would heartily recommend the apartment as an excellent base and I too would hope to be returning in the near future.
