A few comments
from our guests:
 
"A home away from home. Perfect for taking the edge off the initial culture shock."
 
"Thank you so much for having me here, preparing great food for me, doing my laundry, simply taking care of me! At these times I wondered: is there any job left for my mother?"
 
"We enjoyed Sri Lanka, its forests, hills, and coast, and we enjoyed the bustle of Colombo, but enjoyed coming back to this quiet retreat each evening and the birds in the courtyard in the morning."
 
"Such a lovely start and end to my stay in Sri Lanka. I hope to be back again often."

"Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in Colombo and for your arranging of my very short but particularly sweet tour of Sri Lanka. It's a beautiful country and I am just sad I couldn't see more of it."
