Fantastic location.

A 3 minute walk to the nearest bus stop.
Suitable for single occupant or couple.
Owned and run by a young and friendly couple who'd be more than glad to assist you with travel tips and information. (or leave you utterly alone for some peace and quiet :)
We provide filtered water free of charge, and there're a mini fridge and electric kettle in the room.
Linen and towel changes are available on request. (500/=)
We offer a room with attached bathroom (with hot water). Though it is a part of our main house, it is completely private and has its own entrance gate along with garden space.
It's fully furnished and you will have a mini fridge, electric kettle, and a comfy double bed with a mosquito net.
Interaction with Guests
We both work, so sometimes we aren't at home, but there's always someone-friends or family at the main house. Guests can choose how much they'd like to interact, by walking over next door, or calling us on the phone. We leave our guests to themselves usually, and in an emergency- just bang on the door! (There is a door that connects your room from the main house where we stay, but this is generally locked for the sake of privacy both for guests and host)
The room is located down a residential lane, with a couple of offices, which have 24 hour security.
Our favourite things to do in our neighbourhood- walks in the park and tree lined roads. Swan boat rides in the Beira lake. Day out at Galle face and sea swims.
We're very close to nightclubs, hotels, (email hidden)nvenient!
Traveling is easy - you can walk out and take a three wheeler.
Many different bus routes intersect around the area, and all are walking distance. There's also a small train station less than 1 km away, and the main Colombo bus and train station is just a 10 minute ride away.
Other Things to Note
We have some curious cats that may like to visit- but if you'd like to escape them just keep the windows closed when you go out!
We expect guests to let us know early if they plan to bring anyone else into their room. There's no extra charge, it's just that we'd like to know who's in our house.
The room and garden are completely separate, and we respect the privacy of our guests.
Smoking is not an issue.
A friend of a friend knows Dayani and Dejan and recommended me this room. I am very happy I stayed with them. The room is very basic, and though I've slept in better beds, it was everything I needed on my first few nights in Sri Lanka. Convenient and safe location, close to restaurants, shops and tuktuks can easily take you anywhere. There's a fridge in the room and a kettle, tea/coffee, plates, cutlery, cups etc. so you can make your own breakfast. Dayani and Dejan were super friendly and available for questions and recommendations.
A basic, comfortable, clean room with good access to the city and a friendly approachable host
Good and clean room with attached shower and toilet in Colombo 3 (near the city). Very friedly couple and good hosts. Thanks Dayani and Dejan
My brief encounters with my hosts were very pleasant and practical. The room is very centrally located in Colombo, but because of road construction restaurants and so on were not so accessible as they would be otherwise. The road itself is always extremely busy but the room is quiet at night except for the occasional loud barking of dogs. The facilities of the room are very basic but adequate for tourists.
Unfortunately an errand dog prevented us from sleeping 6 nights out of 6. Else everything was perfect.
Very nice, helpful and friendly hosts, great location - quiet and safe in a private road yet close to all the sights in Colombo. Room simple but clean and well equipped with everything you might need. I was even able to do my laundry at their home - thanks again for letting me use your washing machine ;-). Would definitely recommend this place.
