Parklyn Lodge a colonial staycation experience

I absolutely love the colonial bungalows in Sri Lanka. We saw some great ones in Galle, and also in Colombo you will have the chance to stay in some pretty nice ones! This gorgeous Colonial Bungalow can host 3 guests over two bedrooms, a great living area and a beautiful outside space where you can rest in the shade. 

We almost booked this one for ourselves when we were stuck in Sri Lanka because I fell in love with the outside bath and shower (like seriously!!) and at $32 a night it is very cheap!
