Shirash and her lovely wife where always very friendly. We arrived at 3 am and he opened the door for us. He was always around and very honest. The room was very clean and enough for the two of us. All the people working in the villa treat us with respect and warmth. We felt very comfortable and happy from... More

Fantastic villa in a quiet area of negombo. Not much going on around the area but only a short tuk tuk ride away from more touristy locations/beach. We loved the accommodation with kitchenette and the brilliant bathroom. The grounds around the villa are great and tranquil and now with a swimming pool

We stayed at Villa Shade for two nights. Descent rooms with tv, ac, wifi. The real surprise was the bathroom, which is like you are out in the jungle. Breakfast is very traditional, but for the kids there is the continental alternative. There is a big garden with coconut, banana and mango trees, where you can see many types of... More

Very well equipped cabins in a pretty garden where your breakfast is served. The hosts speak excellent English and want your stay to be the best it can be. I had to change my reservation which was not a problem and they did everything possible to ensure that I was looked after, being a single, older, lady traveller. I also... More

We stayed our first night in Sri Lanka at Villa Shade. The villa is very spacious and well designed with kitchenette, outdoor style bathroom and dining table. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating. The only down side is that it is about 15mins drive to beach but it was in a quiet area. If you would like to dine... More

Great to recover after a long exhausting flight, we stayed only 1 night to move on to Sigiriya by car with driver that they kindly arranged for us by email one week prior to arrival. Comfortable large room (in the house) with huge double bed and mosquito nets at the windows. The bathroom and shower are ok but could use... More

The hotel is a lovely little place to get over your jet lag or if you need somewhere close to the airport before flying out. We stayed in our own little chalet which was very clean and comfortable, the outdoor bathroom and all the little touches are very cute and you can tell the place is looked after well. Ram,... More

Even though I didn't actually spend the night, I was allowed to hang out with a befriended couple until my flight left late at night. I was provided with a mattress to take a nap and they organised a very nice and reliable tuk tuk driver for me to bring me to the airport and they wouldn't even let me... More
