I stayed at Ivy residencies with my parents in Dec. The property is excellent with its location right by the beach, but the most outstanding thing about staying here is Mr. Jacob, the proprietor - it was a very personalized experienced, and he made sure our stay was very comfortable, from the point of landing in colombo to leaving, and made sure to arrange every detail of our stay in a very hassle free manner, even accommodating last min requests. It was made a very enoyable experience by the warmth and the hospitality extended - also the property is great and very comfortable specially if travelling with family, there is lots of space and everything you could need from a fridge to a sofa to cutlery to tea and coffee pouches - the property is clean and well maintained with a great location - highly recommend! Lots of eating options nearby along with the lovely beach - this one doesnt require second thoughts before booking!

We travelled to Sri Lanka in Nov/Dec with our 2 young children as my husband was working in Colombo for 3 weeks and we needed to base ourselves somewhere. I'd spent a lot of time researching various places and Ivy Residencies fit the bill due to its proximity to the beach and garden space and amenities (I needed a kitchen to prepare meals etc). The email contact between myself and Jacob/Kala was excellent. I had a lot of questions and they put my mind at ease and helped me source a car seat for my daughter and various other things. When we arrived they had provided additional items, such as toys and a high chair too. The location of the accommodation is great. You are right on the beach and close to lots of restaurants and bars. It is easy to get transport and Jacob is always on hand to help organise things if you need it. Jacob is the type of host who goes the extra mile for his guests. Nothing was too much trouble for him. He helped us to arrange babysitters, taxis, bookings etc and really made our trip even more enjoyable. My kids adored him and they can be a tough audience! I would not hesitate recommending Ivy Residencies to anyone looking for a place to stay in Colombo. Mount Lavinia is a great suburb and this was a home away from home for us.

This is a beautiful colonial building maintained in amazing conditions. Apartments are huge, fresh and really comfortable. My senior parents loved the style of the house and the green areas around it. Location was just perfect to us, really close to the main services and one minute walk from the beach which has nice little bars and restaurants open till late. Jacob was just fantastic, really well organised and helpful with many informations, all the staff was incredible and really welcoming. We simply felt like at home. Max from New Zealand

The beach is on the doorstep. My two boys loved the spacious rooms and had so much fun in the beautiful garden during down times. Jacob is a fantastic host, making sure we were comfortable and went out of his way with transport bookings for us. Highly recommend to families!
