Nilanka'a wife was there to greet us when we arrived and everything about the house was great: the rooms and bathrooms were all modern, clean, airy and bright. The bedrooms and living room/dining room were air conditioned. The kitchen had everything from a cooker, oven, microwave, fridge, cutlery, crockery, tea towels, clean sponges, washing up liquid, pepper, salt, spices, tea, coffee and the fridge had water and milk. The property has a massive garden, which might benefit from some kids play equipment. However there was plenty of garden furniture and a BBQ. The caretaker lives on site and was at hand to help out if we needed it. The beach is a 2 minute walk away, although you have to cross a railway track which is how it is in SL. The beach itself was beautiful and there are a few cafes in close proximity. The house is about a 15 minute walk from Mt Lavinia hotel and about 5 minutes from a massive supermarket- Family Super (?). I wish we could have stayed a bit longer!
