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.

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.

We really enjoyed staying at Sashee's place. She is really easy to contact and gives great information. The room is very clean, wifi works, and it's near to great restaurants.

Sashee's apartment is really spacious, quiet and central - On a secluded road but in easy walking to bars, shops and transport. Her communication was great and checking in was no problem.

I was in Sashee's apartment - so balcony but not really a view. The room was fine - but Sashee very uninterested in me being there, as I was one night I suppose she may be tired of too many people coming and going. Location ok - but I was booking whilst travelling on a long bus ride and regretted not going for somewhere more visitor friendly in the more residential districts or just in a more buzzy area. I also wasn't leaving till the next evening and you can arrange with the guys downstairs to leave bags in the lobby. But don't expect help or sympathy from Sashee - when I asked if that would be safe - she just shrugged her shoulders and clearly wasn't interested - as long as I was out by 11am and out of her hair. Nice girl I'm sure but for my last night in Sri Lanka after a month - the least welcoming and helpful.
