Yohans home was an absolutely perfect place to spend a few days in Anuhapudura, away from tourists to have some peace and quiet. The view of the stupas across the lake were truly splendid. By far, this was my favorite place I stayed in my 3 week holiday in Sri Lanka. The meals…

Response from Yohan:
Hi Joel Thank you very much for your reviews. Both Pidurangala and waters edge, anuradhapura are priced similarly, however, I have given a special discount at Sigiriya during this period. I also gave you an additional discount at Sigiriya, since you had already booked waters edge. Appreciate your comments and hope that you will visit Sri Lanka again. We have another spectacular location near Sigiriya (back of beyond Dehigaha ela) but it is a bit further away compared (around 30 min from sigiriya) compared to Pidurangala.

Great, beautiful, peaceful accomodations. Yohan was very responsive while we were planning our trip, and also so kind as to help us organize transportation within Anuradhapura during our stay.
