4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, Air conditioned house
Why Subhash chose Katunayake
We bought this property as it is in a beautiful quiet secure gated complex with all the amenities you need. It is ideally located to travel around to other parts of the Island. We intend to retire here.

No surprise with the house ; it was in accordance with the photos and the description. It was spacious and roughly well-maintained. The swimming pool was very nice and clean. Fernando, the house manager, was very attentive and provided us many advices and helps. The guide Chamila was perfect. Be careful if you need the internet to bring a computer and not a touchpad.
Great place to stay, safe, secure, reliable owner
I stayed in this property with my mum and toddler daughter at the end of December. It was a lovely property, secure and safe and comfortable with working fans and air conditioning and access to shops within the complex and a swimming pool. The owner is based in the UK and to pay a deposit and the full amount to a stranger is always a worry but both the owner and his working colleague (Shanaka) in Sri-Lanka were very trustworthy and entirely helpful. They also recommended a driver service which was really useful and there is a guest book they keep in the property which always help to plan your trip. It is a good, safe base for a family to use close to the airport with security to enable you to travel around the country. We left on the 9/1/14 but unfortunately my grandmother died on the 2/2/14 and so I had book a ticket to fly back to Sri-Lanka that same day to accompany my mother. I rang the owner and without thought he offered me accommodation and told me I need not pay for anything until I came back to England - which was such a kind gesture (as he understood the sadness of the occasion and the importance of not adding to any more stress). I off course paid when I was in Sri-Lanka as I knew I would forget if I didn't do it there and then and off course on both occasions when I came back the owner refunded my deposit promptly without any fuss. So in short this is a great place and more importantly the UK owner is honourable and very organised with reliable help on hand in Sri-Lanka (Shanaka) if you do have a problem with the property. Shanaka's wife also left a welcome basket for us with milk, coffee, sugar etc., which was a lovely thought. I have recommended this place to my own friends.

We have had a good time in Sri Lanka
We started our holiday in Sri Lanka in this house. We stayed there for a few days, before we went to the south. On the way back to German we stayed an other few days there. We enjoyed our stay there. The house is near Airport, the house is very safe, the pool is great - we enjoyed all.
The housekeeper is very friendly and helpfull.
Sri Lanka is a great place to visit!
We had a lovely holiday in Sri Lanka. The house was in the perfect location to use as a base to travel about the country. The estate was nice and quiet - we felt very safe. The staff on site were very helpful, especially when we were trying to give a taxi directions!
The house itself was very spacious and well equipped. The AC was great in the bedrooms and the ceiling fans gave moderate relief in the lounge areas. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean with a decent shower. The Kitchen was basic but functionable. As we were there for 4 weeks, it was great to have the washing machine.
The swimming pool area was kept nice and clean and a great place to have a swim and cool down after a day of activity!
We travelled about on our holiday...Pinnawala was amazing, a must for any traveller! Also, we went to Sigirya Rock and stayed in the Sigirya Village Hotel - fantastic hotel, good food!! We also went to Ranweli Holiday Village - you cross a little river to get there! We stayed in the Deluxe Beach Cottage - luxury at its best. The spa there was lovely - had a two hour massage...truely amazing!!
So all in all, we had a great time - I would recommend visiting Sri Lanka and staying at Nivasipura as a base for your holiday.
Owner very very helpful on the phone and then via email with lots of recommendations before we arrived.
House clean and beds comfortable - everything worked. Kitchen basic but we only used it for breakfast.
Very safe location and lovely and quite.
Pool on site fantastic and we had it all to ourselves.
Strange inside garden in the living room that is not shown in the pictures!?!
Great restaurant nearby called 'the fork' - and some small shops nearby that sell basics. A/C worked extremely well and mosquito nets were not needed at all -we got abs no bites and I normally do.
It's 45 minutes to an hour in a tuk tuk (1000rs) to Colombo and 40 minutes to Negombo (700rs).
Drivers seem to find it ok and we picked them up from the top of the road - but then got a good one who came most days for us if we prearranged -
A Wonderful Holiday Experience
We have been staying at this house in JaEla for the last five weeks and were amazed at the comments made by the last reviewer. We arrived on the day she left and the house was spotlessly clean, the only hairs we have found have been our own.
The house is spacious, very secure, private and well maintained. There is hot water in the bathroom provided by a water heater that works perfectly as does the shower. There are also three toilets in the house one being located on the ground floor. The back garden overlooks a park and we have sat in the garden at night enjoying the warm air which has been delightful. There are mosquitoes about but we have effectively managed that problem by using the air condition and fan. This is the tropics and mosquitoes are everywhere so if you are allergic to their bites stay away. The house manager is very helpful and attentive but not intrusive.
A swimming pool set in attractive gardens is at the end of the road and provides an ideal opportunity for exercise and cooling off. We have always had the pool to ourselves during the week. A new restaurant called “The Fork” overlooking the lake has recently opened and the food is excellent and they are installing a wood burning pizza oven. There is a variety of shops on the estate that are well worth supporting.
Negombo is a comfortable thirty minutes drive away and has the beach and some good restaurants, we go there frequently but deals must be done with taxi drivers.
We have had an excellent time and wonder if the previous reviewer had stayed in the same property because her experience has certainly not been ours.
