general questions, housing etc (Colombo)

Hello
I am doing a bit of investigation about possibly doing part of my PhD research in Sri Lanka. I have a bit of money from the University, but no way near enough to pay for a fancy embassy-style house, which I suspect doesn't come for the Protected content we would be able to stay anyway...
I wouldn't need a particularly big house, but I would be bringing my husband and our 3 year old son, so somewhere big enough for the 3 of us, preferably with some outside space.
Is it possible to rent for such a short period of time, and what should we expect to pay?

Also, bringing a 3 year old, I am of course wondering what the situation is with children and babysitters and things like that?

thanks a lot,
Britta
