This colonial heritage 150 year old house was the home of the warden of Sri Lanka's famous public schools St. Thomas and dance school of a famous Sri Lankan dancer in the 1950s. The house is situated close to the Colombo Port and is 3 kilometers from Pettah and Fort. Pettah is one of the most vibrant and colorful parts of Colombo. In Sinhalese called Pitta-Kottuwa, literally translating to Outer Fort, Pettah is known for its bustling open air bazaars and markets. You name it and your will find it in Pettah, with each thoroughfare having its own specialty — Gabo's Lane and 5th Cross St specialize in Ayurvedic medicines, while jewellery stores line 2nd Cross Street and Sea Street.
If you end up on Prince Street, be sure to visit the Dutch Museum which was originally the 17th century residence of the Dutch Governor. Pettah is also of the most ethnically mixed parts of the city and the streets are dotted with several interesting Mosques, Hindu Kovils, Churches and Buddhist Temples. Next to it is the transport hub with the main railway and bus stations.
The house is airy and spacious and guests can sit out in the garden. The property is available by the room, as a 3 bedroom apartment or in its entirety. It is let on a self catering basis. Tea & coffee and other guest requirements can be made available before arrival.
