Sea View Flats

These beautiful flats are furnished specially with rare piecs of local furniture. Many pieces have the very rare black ebony wood on them. There are the special "Pettigama's" which were used as trunks to hold many household items.  Various old cupboards can also be seen which have now been restored.  You can also see some old prints and local artist drawings as well as some foreign artist watercolours. The sitting room is very large and in fact takes up much of the space in the flat. It allows you to relax in it and spend time watching the famous Galle Raod. the St Thomas's School and the constant ebbing of the waves. 

 

There are 2 flats available. One has 2 bedrooms and the other has 1 bedroom. The bedrooms have attached bathrooms and all have hot water. AC is available in all the bedrooms. 

 

If you need to have some washing done, you can even go and visit the old "Doby" yourself to see how the traditional washing was done  - out of big tanks and all put out to dry on big lines. 

 

As a  registered homestay, we employ the locals and you will see  a local couple cleaning and ironing. Whilst there are so many  local high and low budget places to eat at closeby, we can provide a local breakfast with hoppers and coconut curries  if you tell us in advance  in the flat itself.  However, there are plenty of exciting places to have breakfast around here for those on a lower  budget and who want to eat less, to those who want to splurge on the super buffets offered around the clock at all the nearby hotels - especially the Cinnamon Grand Hotel. For those wanting a special breakfast, or a quick meal, you can drop into ..... which is literally 10 metres away. There is also the 24 hour coffee shop at the Cinnamon Grand and they also have a lovely range of sandwiches and cakes and coffee and tea.......

 

For those who are staying for over 10 days, we can help you get temporary membership of the Colombo Swimming Club where you can use their swimming pool, their bar,and enjoy the wide range of local food and other menus they serve. Enjoy watching the sun set in the evenings as well. 

 

Those who stay longer also will get the chance to be shown around this area and eat at the local small shops and drink the local juices. You may also get a chance to visit the countryside in Horana and observe the tea and cinnamon plantations and see the farmers at work on their paddy for instance.
