El alojamiento

Ayubūvan. Welcome to our well-loved Wijesinghe Home.

Air conditioning is available in each room for an additional charge of 7 USD per day per room, currently only 1st and 2nd room have AC. So for all rooms would be an additional 14 USD per day.

Built in the 1950s, this home has been lovingly restored to its original wooden features and rejuvenated ancestral furniture. The Wijesinghe Home brought up three generations of our family. It was designed and crafted by our grandmother, a wonderful feat at that time in Sri Lanka's history.

This is a traditional home and will provide a typical Sri Lankan living experience with modern amenities.

This listing is for the entire house.

Wijesinghe House has for its hosts an elderly couple – Uncle Shelton and Aunty Kusum polite and helpful to a fault.

This is an ideal place not only for tourists but also for longer term research students and business travelers as it is located in a quiet and safe residential area with easy access and close proximity to businesses, government institutions and the Colombo and Jayawardana Pura universities and medical faculties

Uncle Shelton is well read and well informed and would be a source of knowledge on research materials.

This was our first ever AirBnB experience and we could not have asked for anything better than this. The beauty, comfort, neatness and homeliness of the accommodation, the open, airy spaces, the hospitality and warmth of the hosts, Uncle Shelton, Aunty Kusum and the caretaker Pethi, the enriching conversations with Uncle, and not to forget, the yummy food prepared by Aunty and Pethi - all of these did not just enhance our stay, but were the highlights of our trip. The smallest of our requests were well-taken care of by the hosts, and we truly felt at home. Leaving for home was not so pleasant, as we felt we were going away from family. We are going to cherish this experience for a very long time. We look forward to future trips to Sri Lanka to stay here again and would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Sri Lanka.

Great 3 bedrooms house. The center is easily reached by Uber or Tuk-tuks in 30 minutes. Late in the enening can appear mosquitos that are common in Sri Lanka, but beds have nets and no problem during the night. The house was a bit difficult to find for Uber drivers, so ask for the map before coming. The owners of the house are very friendly and helpful, we appreciated them very much.

Nice spacious house which can accomodate 6 guests in Rajagiriya. Guests can reach anywhere in colombo on Uber or tuk tuks within Rs500 range (USD 3) and very centralized. Also there is an Italian restaurant (Rocco's) which you can reach by foot within 3 minutes. They serve some serious pizza's and Pasta's. House has a full function kitchen and Laundry which was great. There is a caretaker who visits early morning and open up the doors windows etc and she kept the place clean and tidy. We were here in two occasions on the same month and it was a great house to stay.

Even though I didn't meet Mr. Srian personally, his Aunt and Uncle were very welcoming, warm and friendly. Felt like home. The location is awesome, very quiet and peaceful. I would recommend this listing for whoever comes to Sri Lanka.

Definately the best recommended place to stay while around. This place just has the charm not only in terms of the house but also really warm hearted people. Aunty Kusum and uncle were the nicest people we have met. Do have a chat with uncle on sri lankan culture, history and philosophy. I also got to have my favorite sri lankan breakfast.
