It started poorly when there was no one to pick me up at the airport for the transfer. When I messaged to confirm he was there, I was told he was standing there with a sign with my name on it. 10 minutes later I received an email saying no driver was coming because there wasn't time to arrange one....

Nice guesthouse near the airport with a relaxed swimmingpool and kind staf. The motto of the owner is "I am happy when my guests are happy" and we were happy guests. This is not a hotel so bring your own food if you want to eat and drink. We had two different rooms. One was very spacious, the other very...

I stayed several days and each morning the breakfast was different. The pool was clean and refreshing. New hammocks and picnic areas were being built in the lush garden. I borrowed a bike...

We arrived here straight from the airport. By then I did not realise how exceptionally good this place was. Luckily we will go back here for two nights to end our trip. Very nice and helpful people and a beautiful place in general.

After a quick drive to Negombo from Colombo Airport arranged by Villa Shade we were greeted personally by the owner, Siraj, with fresh coconut water from the VS garden.

We stayed at Villa Shade the first night we arrived in Sri Lanka. After a hassle free airport transfer we were delighted to find a great room for all of us. We travelled with two young kids and our au pair and we were provided with a cot ( really rare in Sri Lanka). We all enjoyed an outdoor shower...

It was a good stay. The owner is a very nice gentleman. He helped to arrange a tuk tuk with a very reasonable price to go to airport and bus station. The breakfast in the compound was good too.
