The Western Province region
Western Province hosts the legislative capital of Sri Jayawardenepura as well as the business capital Colombo. It attracts many travelers with its myriad charms. Colombo is a busy and vibrant city with a mixture of modern life and colonial buildings and ruins and a population of 647,000. Due to its large harbour and its strategic position along the East-West sea trade routes, Colombo was known to ancient traders 2,000 years ago.
Like many cities, Colombo's urban area extends well beyond the boundaries of a single local authority, encompassing other Municipal and Urban Councils. The main city is home to a majority of Sri Lanka's corporate offices, restaurants and entertainment venues. Famous landmarks in Colombo include the Galle Face Green, the Viharamahadevi Park, Mount Lavinia beach as well as the National Museum.
Although the beach stretches intermittently along the coast from Galle Face Green, it only becomes desirable south of Colombo at Mt. Lavinia. Considering it's proximity to the city, it's suburban life is in stark contrast to the screeching madness of Colombo city. The sea is generally safe for swimming, but swimming between the flags in the patrolled area is always recommended. Use of the grand Mt Lavinia Hotel's pool will set you back a few rupees, but is worth it for a lazy and refreshing sea breeze and a wander around the historic splendour of the buildings, which was originally the mansion of a British governor. There are many beachfront restaurants serving both international and local cuisine, and global franchises like McDonalds, KFC and Pizza Hut along the main road. Situated 15 minutes from the house is the world renowned Colombo zoo.

"Well worth it!"
Very nice property, located in a quiet neighbourhood with good connectivity to the City. The traffic to the city is a killer but the beach is just a short Tuk Tuk ride away. Supermarkets are walking distance away and well equipped. The rental is safe and secure. Nothing for kids to do though. Great place to set up base for day trips around Sri Lanka. Nice kitchen with most kitchen equipment for a quick home cooked meal. Not many restaurants though.
