Turquoise House is a charming colonial bungalow with an open plan loft, housed in the heart of the city. This includes 1 Twin room and 1 Double room along with a spacious terrazzo verandah. The bungalow is furnished with A/C, free hi-speed WiFi, fridge, tea & microwave/grilling/toasting facilities and an en suite bathroom with a rainfall showerhead.

The space
Magnificent in its rusticity, Turquoise House is an open plan loft that consists of a large downstairs Twin bedroom, replete with a colonial dresser and chest, living room space and an en suite bathroom with a rainfall showerhead for those tranquil morning showers! The Twin bedroom faces out onto a large terrazzo verandah with a coffee table and living room space, dotted with plants on the side. The dreamy verandah is ideal for yoga, morning/evening relaxation and doubles up as a dining space.

The upstairs plays host to a chic wooden loft space complete with a Queen-sized bed. This room overlooks the downstairs room and is connected via a spiral staircase.

Other things to note
Our Colpetty location – Colombo 7 – is as trendy and central as it gets! We are just a walk away from local attractions (the National Museum and Gangaramaya Temple), restaurants (Mango Tree, Peach Valley), bakeries (Yumi, Baguette), wine shops (House of Wines) and cafes (the super hip Cricket Club Cafe), coffee shops (the ultra-chill Commons Coffee Shop), bars (Cloud Red Rooftop Bar – the highest in Colombo), shisha lounges, movie theatres, malls and supermarkets. It’s that easy!

Extras

Free towels are provided. We also provide free teabags, free coffee sachets, one free water bottle, a toaster, a fridge and a microwave-grill. Mosquito nets are also available at no extra charge.

Check in

Between the hours of 1.30am and 5.30am we are shut. Check in time is 1pm. However, if you are arriving at an earlier/later time, please let us know.

Guidelines

1.No pets allowed.
2.No parties/events and no outside guests.
3.No smoking on the premises.
4.Between the hours of 1.30am and 5.30am we are shut.
5.Check out is at 10am.
6.No loud noise after 10pm.
7.No overnight visitors.
8.If you arrive after midnight, please book and pay for the night before.
9.Breakfast is not included but our road plays host to a series of restaurants and cafes…so you’ll never go hungry!
10.Turquoise House is an eco-friendly space. Please help us keep it this way by switching off the A/C, lights and fans when exiting the premises.
11.Please close all doors and windows of the property (including the bathroom door) in the evenings, at night and when exiting the property to prevent any pesky animals from entering!
12.Not suitable for infants and children under 7.
13.Unfortunately, we cannot offer booking services for trains/cars.
14.Our location – 17 Flower Road Colombo 7 – is in central Colpetty and is only 45 minutes from Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA). Airport cabs are freely available from the Taxi Desk at approximately Rs 3000, however they are extortionate and clueless with directions! A cheaper and more efficient alternative would be an Uber car, Kangaroo cabs (pre-book online, free WiFi in the cab) or the local transport app called PickMe. Even for short stays we recommend getting a Dialog or Mobitel 4G phone sim on entry as it will make life easier during your whole trip and you will have your own portable hotspot. For departures, please allocate 3 hours prior to your leaving time for check in.

Turquoise House complements a larger colonial house. Please:
1.Do not ring the bell after 10pm unless it is an emergency.
2.Do not enter the main house as it is strictly off-bounds.
3.Make sure the gate door is properly shut after entering or exiting the main property (slam it in case it doesn't shut!)

Turquoise House is run with love by a brother and sister duo: the former an award-winning film director and actor and the latter a musician, actress and dancer. A lifetime of living and travelling around the world left both with a desire to marry the international with the local in their home country. The result was Turquoise House: a cosy sanctuary for the seasoned traveler in search of old world charm with a modern aesthetic.
