Interaction with guests
We offer our guests the unique opportunity of enjoying a tranquil environment far away from the hustle and bustle of oriental life and sharing our daily life - we have two children, 4 dogs, a cat, ducks and chickens!!!
We chat to our guests, help with their travel plans and get train tickets for them in advance of them coming to SL. OR if they prefer they can have their own space and privacy by their chalets.
Other things to note
We have 3 dogs, 2 dalmations and 1 german sherperd who are very used to people and are harmless. but they are part of the family and don't like being locked up, they roam freely. If you are very, very scared of dogs you will get used to these ones!!
You have very few restriction at summit view, We like to be informed in the morning if you require a night meal, and stuff like that.
Also, guests are reminded that we have dogs. although very friendly sometimes they bark but do not worry they certainly do not bite. They like people and they love to be petted, the german shephard/collie mix Max more than the other two dogs, everyone starts worrying about Max but they get so friendly with him that they want to take him home!!

Hi I am Sri Lankan but lived in the UK for 30 years, married a French/Irishman and returned to Sri Lanka to live. We found our present location and fell in love with the beauty of it and built the house of our dreams here. I love entertaining, I give parties to our circle of friends regularly, love cooking both french and other western food(I leave the local SL cooking to my very capable cook - Lillie)This got me into the hosting business. I have built two chalets by the pool for your own space as guests but my house is open to you to enjoy!
