Everything about Cottage Garden Bungalows was perfect. My son and I had one of the three bungalows to ourselves with a bathroom, kitchen and large bedroom. Amongst other things, there was WiFi and a TV, hot water, a stove and a fridge. Papaya, bananas, juice, water, milk, bread, butter, jam, tea, coffee and more were left ready for us. The gardens were beautiful and we spent a relaxing time sitting on the porch, feeding the tortoises and watching the birds. The beach is a couple of minutes walk and there are restaurants both there and on the roads nearby. We paid to use the swimming pool at the hotel next door (LKR800 per adult) and tended to have the whole pool to ourselves. To top it all, Janitha (the owner) and Ranjith (the manager who lives onsite) really looked after us and made sure that we had everything we needed. Janitha's family have owned the property since the 1980s and you can see why guests have been returning since then. We were given great suggestions about places to eat, where to swim, transport to and from Mount Lavinia, and Janitha gave me some useful advise (and a map) about interesting plces to visit in Sri Lanka. Such a wonderful stay with such friendly, caring and kind people.
Meals ( Breakfast )
The owner Janitha and her other manager Ranjith were particularly friendly and did their best to organize an early breakfast before I was picked up for a early tour. I also liked how quick she was to reply to any email I sent, excellent!
The room was generally clean but when I moved the bed side table, this was because I had put the lamp in a different position on it to leave the light on overnight because of a snake. I noticed the areas there, were not that clean. But the bathroom and general areas and bed which are important to me were clean so that was good. I also was scared at night to have a small snake moving in and out of the ceiling beam in the corner of the room, I think they need to check them all and seal it. I didn't sleep well because of that. They assured me the next morning that it would not be poisonous ,like our snakes in Australia but it was scary to try and sleep in the same room with it. I'd probably cut back some of the bush around cottage, I worried about mosquitoes. I hope they can fix the issues and have lots of people stay, they are such nice people.
Lovely breakfast, 10 mins walk to Mt Lavinia hotel, and other local places on the beach. Handy for a trip to airport, took us under an hour.
Lovely place to stay close to the beach and shops. Owner was fab
Mosquitos and dishes were not clean.
