The space

Welcome to T&V Boutique Apartments - Gower Street Apartments – Ground Floor 26/5

A tastefully decorated home away from home; our apartment is fully serviced and we even have salt, pepper, tea, sugar and spices just so that you can hit the ground running. We understand the needs of our guests so when you arrive in the middle of the night you don’t have to be running for refreshments or a snack.

The apartment is very spacious and newly re-furbished located in the heart of Colombo in an extremely residential area called Havelock Town opposite the Police Park. The area is so quiet that you wouldn’t even know that you are 10 minutes away from all the hustle and bustle.

The entire apartment has very fast 4G Wifi

The master bedroom has a Queen sized double bed; the next room has two single beds.

Both rooms have the following amenities:

Ceiling fans
Clothes cupboards
Dressing tables with a mirror

The Kitchen is fully equipped with the following:

4 Hob Gas Cooker
Electric Oven
Large refrigerator
Electric Kettle
Water filter
Pots, pans and cutlery

We use linen used in Sri Lanka’s 5 star hotels for the comfort of our guests and our inventory is as follows:

Bathroom linen – Bath towels, Face towels, hand towels and bath mats
Bedroom linen – Duvets, sheets and pillows

The apartment can easily accommodate 4 adults and a 5th child can be accommodated on an airbed that can be put in the master bedroom.

We strive hard to maintain a nice garden, so don’t be surprised to see a gardener popping by during your stay; he will water the garden, cut the grass and attend to the garden work.

Last but not least you will be visited by our irresistible and adorable pet cat “Ginger” he has been a big hit among all our guests. Unlike most cats who are proud he is a very warm cat who loves to get his head stroked and stomach petted. All vaccines have been given so he is very safe.

We hope you have a wonderful stay with us and we hope you treat it like your own home as we have strived hard to make it literally a home away from home for you.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, we are well travelled within Sri Lanka and overseas too so if you need some insider tips on off the beaten track places to see in Sri Lanka we are more than happy to provide you with all the information you need.

We look forward to having you with us soon,

Tarushi & Vajira

Great location, great place and great people! Located on a quiet street that is very central in Colombo. Very simple and straightforward check in process and communication with host. This apartment also has a good kitchen that we used for both cooking and baking. Recommended!

Hello there.....a little note about myself and things to do in Colombo and Sri Lanka....

I am a spiritual person who likes Yoga, Meditation and Ayurveda. I have travelled extensively throughout the world and most of my travels have been backpacking and I have couchsurfed in most places.

I shuttle between London and Colombo as I have interest in both locations.

I manage 6 apartments at Hedges Court and a few in Colombo 5 which is more like a residential hub of Colombo.....both locations having the best of transport links.

I have travelled the length and breadth of Sri Lanka and would say I know Sri Lanka quite well. Please don't hesitate to ask if you need someone to make a plan on where to go in Sri Lanka.

I am also a travel writer and used to write in the Ceylon Today newspaper on various destinations in Sri Lanka if you want I can email some of the articles so that you would know in detail what to do....

A standard itinerary on must do things in Sri Lanka....

Colombo - Bars / Pubs / Restaurants and Night Life


Beira Lake, Seema Malake, Gangaramaya Temple, Viharamahadevi Park, Kelaniya Temple, Dutch Hospital, Pettah Market, Colombo Dutch Museum, Galle Face Green, Mount Lavinia Beach, Independence Square, Colombo National Musuem & Colombo Zoo


Majestic City, Liberty Plaza, Crescat Boulevard, Odel Unlimited, Paradise Road, Barefoot & Lakpahana

Dambulla or Habarana - Dambulla Rock Cave Temple and Sigiriya Rock Fortress (on the way to Dambulla / Habarana visit the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage)

Using Dambulla or Habarana as a base visit Anuradhapura (Sri Lanka's first capital) then Polonnaruwa (Sri Lanka's second capital) on the way back from Polonnaruwa visit the Minneriya National Park and see Elephants especially the elephant migration in Aug / Sep.

Kandy - Temple of Tooth Relic, Embekke Temple, Lankatilaka Vihare and Gadaladeniya Temple and in the evening the Kandy Cultural Show.

Nuwara Eliya - Called Little England is an excellent place if you want to get away from the heat. Horton Plains is the only national park that you can go on foot on a designated path.

Ella - A hippie villa and is a lovely place to spend a couple of days. Nuwara Eliya and Ella have locations popular with the Indian Epic Ramayanaya.

Yala National Park - Go for an early morning or late afternoon safari to spot a leopard or two.

Now you can use the expressway and get to Mirissa / Weligama / Galle / Bentota fairly quickly and enjoy the beaches.

Mirissa is the best place to see Whales and Dolphins during Oct - Mar.
Weligama Bay is an ideal place to learn surfing.
Galle is a must do place and visit the Galle Fort

Off the beaten track areas

Arugam Bay
Arankella Monastery in the Kurunegalla and Dambulla Area
Dambadeniya - Sri Lanka's 3rd capital
Yapahuwa - Sri Lanka's 4th capital

Hope you have a wonderful time in Sri Lanka and look forward to hosting you and making your trip to Sri Lanka a wonderful one.

Be Happy !!!!!
