This has been the best homestay ever
I spent three days with Filomena and Clera, Steffan's mum and aunt, who are two lovely and caring ladies.
Everything I could need was there even before I could ask (hot tea, basin to hand wash my clothes, extra soap, a bottle of water..) and all was done in a very discreet way. They suggested my beautiful places nearby, called for me a tuk tuk driver they trust, prepared breakfast and dinner as I asked them according to my stomach problems and, when finally I could eat it, an amazing curry with delicious fish and vegetables.
The room was very clean and spacious and the attached bathroom also is super clean and with a very powerful shower.
But apart from this practical and of course important aspects, what made the difference was the atmosphere.
So, if you visit Galle please go and stay in this place where this lovely family will make you feel home.
We were welcomed into the family home. Room was very clean with ceiling fan, lovely warm shower. Complementary water & coffee/tea. Very sweet hosts and a nice breakfast included.
Excellent experience staying at Steffan's place. It felt like home especially with his caring mom around and just the perfect balance of giving us the privacy and also taking care of 2 traveling girls. Everything was so clean and absolutely the best shower we had in Sri lanka.
We reached quite early than expected and Steffan was kind enough to let us in and use their family restroom facilities and were offered excellent coffee
