The spacious and comfortable apartment takes away that city feeling with the trees, birds and nature right around it. Enjoy a well stocked kitchen, wireless internet & other amenities. Located in Cinnamon Gardens, a quick walk away from parks, jogging tracks, consulates & department stores; enjoy Colombo at it's best.
Our space is in a very central and accessible location within Colombo; and is highly residential, spacious and full of light. Quiet, except for the sounds of birds and insects and maybe a random car or two. The apartment has a living area, dining area, well-equipped kitchen, a mini-rooftop garden with herbs and flowers; all of which is your space too. The most important area for us is the yoga space where we have discussions, yoga classes, relaxation and meditation. Guests will have a bedroom with private bathroom. The spacious room consists of a queen sized bed, sofa and chairs, and a large wardrobe. It's air-conditioned and has ceiling fans and is most comfortable for two. Bathroom amenities and linen will be provided. There is no hot water in the bathroom, though you will not miss it much in this perpetual summer in Colombo. The entire apartment has high speed wireless Internet, however p2p downloads are not encouraged. When you step out, within a few minutes you could reach two great coffee shops, the largest park in Colombo, a monument commemorating the country's independence from the British Empire; now a popular hangout spot with a jogging track right along with it. A couple of bars, clubs, sports clubs, banks & ATM's, temples, embassies and a large department store with lots of authentic Sri Lankan souvenirs. And it's quite close to the beach too. Bus stops are within a 3 minute walk and tuk-tuk's (Motor rickshaws) are always available at the top of our lane.
As my guests you will have a bedroom with private bathroom. Additionally, you have shared access to our kitchen, dining, living areas, rooftop garden and utilities including a washing machine. You have access to our high-speed wireless Internet without any extra charge. I kindly ask you not to smoke inside the apartment but are welcome to do so in the rooftop garden. Feel free to access to our yoga space with yoga mats and go through our collection of books, coffee and teas.
Interacting with our guests and making new friends is something we clearly look forward to even though our work schedules may at times not allow us to do so. But, mostly it depends on you. We value our privacy and yours. So, we will not be present in the listed space, which is your private room and bathroom; but will be sharing the rest of the apartment with you. If you intend to travel within Sri Lanka, Colombo is a great starting point and we can help you with tips and suggestions from years of travelling and living here.
If interested, you can try some yoga or some meditation with me. Maybe join a quick excursion in the city or out of it.

Such an amazing guy is Sachintha. Apart from the fantastic location of the house, the clean, comfortable and tidy room, the privacy and the host useful information, you´ll find in Sachintha the perfect man to chat and share your time and thoughts. We would like to come back
Arrived late on the train in the evening. Sacintha was easily reachable via phone and email and welcomed me with a huge smile on my arrival. The Flat is in a relatively quiet neighborhood. Did not have a chance to explore as I had an early train in the morning. The large room was clean and had great A/C. I would stay here again.
My stay with Sachintha was my very first experience with Airbnb. From the minute I arrived, I felt welcome and as a friend of the house. Sachintha is very open, warm, easy-going, has a good sense of humor and is extremely helpfull. At the same time, he is aware of the need to have time to just rest. His many interests and open mind makes him very inspiring. I felt more than well taken care of. No hotel or hostel has ever given me the same experience of Colombo, so I am hereby hooked on Airbnb, thanks to Sachintha! If at all possible I will try to be back to visit him some day.
Sachintha was flexible beyond any expectations. Even offering that I could arrive at five o´clock in the morning f.ex! He gave directions to whereever I wanted to go and immideately made me feel at home in his home. I only have possitive words to say really. The room was bigger than my own bedroom at home by the way... All in all a very pleasant experience. I left with a big smile. THANK YOU so much. I can only recommand his place.
I want to say thank a great guy Sachintha for a warm welcome, a bit overpriced the cost, but this is justified, since the location is just great!
Really nice people with good understanding for our situation. everything went absolutly correct and with a nice human touch. Thanx Rolf
We had a really great time in colombo. klara and sachintha were great host, who provided interisting insights on travelling in sri lanka and took us to a great singalese dinner. The room was quite nice and clean. In total we felt very comfortable while staying at that place. Thanks guys! We would always recommend this appartement!
Klara and Sachintha were great hosts. They invited us to dinner with them and their friends, and were super helpful for directions on how to get to our next destination. Excellent hosts! The room itself is very simple, but quite adequate.
We had a very nice stay at Klara's place. It is simple, clean and very well located. It really suited our last night in Colombo.
We stayed with Klara one night only on our last night in Sri Lanka. We really liked the place and the location and we can highly recommend staying there.
The room is big and clean and Klara was really helpful with tips of where to eat and how to get to places the best way. She also booked a taxi to the airport for us the morning when we left which was very nice.
Thanks Klara for a very short and nice stay at your place! We wish we could have stayed longer.
We've been with Sachintha for One Night when we landed in Sri Lanka and ihr was a Perfect Start. Sachintha (Klara unfortunately was in a Weekend Trip with Friends) helped us a Lot with planning our next stets, arranged a Train ticket and gave us tips for places we should Travel to in Sri Lanka. We've Visited a Coupé of places and they were all Great so far!
The House is clean and located in a very good and comfortable area. A Tuk Tuk to cmb Main train Station Took us only 10 Mins!
It was really Great to Meet You. Thanks for everything!
