My home is situated in the suburbs of Colombo in the historical town of Ethul Kotte,Sri Jayawardena Pura, the capital of Srilanka. It is a tranquil place where you find peace and privacy in the cool, shady garden.

It consist of a double bedroom with en suite bathroom, sitting, dinning area and a well equipped kitchenette. Adjoining the bed room is a leafy private court yard where you can read, dine or just relax.
It has fans, hot water and free Wi-Fi . Extra fresh and clean linens are available. The entire unit is lockable.

If you wish you are most welcome to my home in upstairs to have your breakfast with my family or just to see my gallery and witness a working experience of painting in my studio. It's joy for me to offer you the colors and canvas to do your own painting with me too.

If you are looking for a spacious, private haven to retreat to in a busy city, this is the perfect place. You will be surprised and delighted at the amazing breakfast that is delivered each morning. Delicious! During my stay, Channa and Udyoga helped me in so many ways, from arranging the best transport to recommending places to visit, to cooking together. Channa is an artist and his home is his gallery. He even invited us to help with his current work. There is a lot to see within walking distance of the home. Also, there is a lot to see and learn within the walls of the magical garden. Ask Channa to take you on a night tour. This place is very comfortable. Channa and Udyoga are very generous and welcoming hosts who respect guests privacy. You won't want to leave.

Channa and his family are amazing hosts, and his home is beautiful. Our expectations were exceeded during our stay, both in the quality of the accomodation and the hospitality provided. The bed is very comfortable, there is a washing machine available, and even cold drinks provided in the fridge. I could not recommend staying with Channa more, we felt relaxed and inspired to be surrounded by his beautiful art and extraordainary garden. We plan on staying again.

It was such a great experience staying at Channa's place. The facilities are good - clean and comfortable and the best aspect of the stay was Channa himself. He is a warm and gracious host who did his best in every way. I would recommend Channa's place to anyone who wants value and a truly hospitable and accommodating host

Channa was a fantastic communicator in the lead up to our stay and provided us with helpful tips and recommendations for Colombo. He welcomed us personally to his tasteful home stay. We had some difficulty with our bags from the airline and he provided much appreciated assistance. The traditional breakfast was delicious and we look forward to staying again when we are back in Colombo!
