The space

Conveniently located at the heart of Colombo 3 (Colpetty / Kollupitiya), with access both from the Galle road and the Marine drive, the Delightful Seaside Homestay is exactly where you want to be when you are exploring Colombo and during your travels in Sri Lanka. Located within walking distance to Colpetty market, Liberty Plaza, Barefoot, Gallery Café, Pillawoos, Colpetty railway station, Green Cabin and Galle Face Green, this is the ideal location for exploring Colombo.

Spacious, airy with plenty of natural light and air coming through, this upstair apartment offers you a vibrantly designed relaxed room with a queen-sized bed, wooden wall cupboards, a lounging chair and an antique writing table. The room opens to a private balcony with a cozy sitting area with a view of the Indian Ocean down the lane. It is perfect for resting after your long flight to Sri Lanka or to launch and plan your adventures in this tropical isle or to even spend your final day in the country basking in its warmth and sea breeze.

The room also comes with a spacious ensuite bathroom that includes a bathtub and shower with hot/cold water. Basic amenities such as shampoo and body wash is available for your use in the bathroom while the room has a range of Sri Lankan tea, coffee, white & brown sugar, creamer and an electric kettle to keep you refreshed throughout your stay. A complimentary bottle water will be available in the room upon check in and guests will have access to high speed wifi connection.

The room has ceiling fan and a constant blowing going through it making air conditioning unnecessary. However if air conditioning is required it can be provided for a nominal charge of $7 (peak 9am-6pm) and $5 (off-peak 6pm-9am) upon request. (Please note that electricity is very expensive in Sri Lanka and is calculated based on units consumed and also banded into usage categories with high users paying more than the average or lower usage households.) You are welcome to open the windows and opt for fresh air courtesy of the sea breeze for the perfect tropical experience which will leave you refreshingly cool.

The room comfortably accommodates two; three people can also be accommodated at an extra cost of $10 (an additional mattress will also be provided at a nominal charge upon request).

The Delightful Seaside Homestay offers tranquility of a seaside location and accessibility to all that Colombo has to offer.

Guest access

Guests have access to the entire apartment, including the spacious lounge and dining area (with a bean bag and comfortable couch) and the fully equipped pantry. The pantry is equipped with a refrigerator, electric oven, four burner stove and basic condiments – so relax, make yourself at home and whip up a quick meal or snack if you prefer to stay indoors, catch up on some reading or watch a movie on the 32” flat screen TV which also has a satellite connection.

Fresh towels, toiletries (shampoo / body wash) and quality linen will be provided for all guests. Linen & towels will be changed on request during your stay at a cost of $5 per change. Guests are also welcome to use the washing machine for their laundry needs at a nominal charge.

The apartment is located on the 2nd floor which makes it airy and comfortable throughout the year. Even though there is no lift, the staircase is easy to climb with a safe and steady bannister.

We arrived at the Airport in Colombo that day from Europe, and Sahee was very helpful with getting to her place, communicating with the cab driver. Also before coming to Colombo she was a very nice and helpful host! The place is nice and clean, the bathroom is already a little older but okay for us - we just stayed for one night. Finding a nice place to eat around was a little difficult for us, but we found our way to the train station easily to buy tickets and travel on the next day. The flat is in a building between two big pretty noisy streets- so that can be an issue if you are sensitive to noise at night, using the airconditioning cost extra but is probably worth the the money we slept without it and we probably should have used it :)

This was a good room for our last night in sri lanka. Sashee was an excellent host, and very accommodating as we arrived early in the morning, and departed for the airport early in the morning the next day. Sashee also helped us with booking the taxi. The room has air conditioning as a reaonably priced extra, and is big and comfortable. The location is also good - it is a relatively short tuk tuk ride to the fort area/pettah market/other sites. Also easy from the train station to get there. We highly recommend.

Unfortunately Sashee ended up having to host some family members - I assume because it was Sri Lankan New Year - but let us know about a week prior and found us a room at her friend's property which was nice. Easy to communicate with.

Warm greetings from your host Sashee from Colombo. Having traveled throughout Sri Lanka I can confidently say that you have made the right choice by deciding to travel to Sri Lanka, whether for a vacation or just for a conference. For the travelers who will be here just for work, I would suggest you take a few days off to explore Colombo and Sri Lanka. You will be amazed by the perfect blend of modernity and natural tranquility that you will experience during your stay.
