The tranquil oasis that is Villa Nelum is situated in a friendly residential community in a large garden, overseen by Mervyn’s sister, Beatrice, who lives in the adjoining property.
Beatrice along with her daughter and niece will welcome guests and ensure that their stay is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
They will be available as required to cook for or with guests by prior arrangement at an additional cost.
Sri Lanka packs so much into a small space: scenery, history and culture, fauna and flora, precious stones and cuisine, to name just a few. Having explored extensively and enjoyed what the island has to offer, we are passionate about Sri Lanka, and are keen to share it with our guests and ensure that they make the most of their trip.
Therefore, we are happy to offer help and advice with:
- Planning your trip
- Advice on flights
- Booking your tour with a guide , transport and accommodation.
While we want guests to feel very much at home in Villa Nelum, it would be appreciated if:
- Guests smoked outside only
- The privacy and peace of the neighbours was respected at all times, eg. No inappropriate sun bathing, no loud music or parties late at night and no misuse of alcohol
- We request that the property, its contents and the garden be respected and looked after in an appropriate manner.

I am a Sri Lankan IT professional living in UK since 1982. My Yorkshire wife Janet, and I have been frequent visitors to Sri Lanka with our two daughters over the years keeping strong contacts with family and friends. In 2013 we achieved our dream of rebuilding the original Silva family home which we are delighted with, and wish to share with people who would like to explore and experience the beautiful island that is Sri Lanka.
My hobbies include: travel, photography, keep fit, walking and DIY. Starting in 1984 I have taken part in an annual fund raising row on Lake Windermere for St Gemma's Hospice, Leeds. Since 2005 I have been an active member of the Association of Sri Lankan Professionals in the UK (APSL UK), of which I have held the positions of General Secretary and President.
Living in beautiful West Yorkshire has given me the benefits of a wide range of Asian Cuisine which I enjoy sampling with family and friends!
