Mufi was an amazing host who did so much to help us. She had a lovely tuk tuk driver meet us at the train station after a long journey and he took us straight home. Mufi had a delicious afternoon tea waiting for us. She showed us around her wonderful house and to our comfortable room with an amazing scenic view of Kandy. Mufi was a great communicator who helped us with our itinerary and she made sure we saw all the best Kandy had to offer. This included great places to eat. She helped us with the prices to pay our tuk tuk driver which can be difficult in Sri Lanka. On the last day, she showed us the best places to shop. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Mufi's multi story house, it was our best stay in all of Sri Lanka. Our daily breakfast was always delicious and fit for a king. Thank you Mufi and your family for sharing Sri Lanka with us . Jacq and Neil

Home away Home is as the name suggests, a home away from your own home. Mufi, an articulate and knowledgeable psychology lecturer and her husband, Doctor RJK, an interesting and highly intelligent senior surgeon, welcomed us into their beautiful 7 story architecturally designed home in January 2017. Nestled into a steep hillside in an affluent suburb with brilliant views across Kandy, myself and two friends occupied the top three floors of the brightly colored house. We entered through a secure gate into a flourishing garden and proceeded into the house through the second of the three floors. The first floor is a large open plan living area with a kitchen, dining table and lounge area with large windows providing stunning views across Kandy. One side of this floor branches off to an indoor courtyard through which is a spacious master bedroom with a clean ensuite with a large shower and readily available hot water. The second floor is the entry level floor from the street and also pertains to an enclosed observatory that spans nearly the length of the house and overlooks Kandy. The third floor has two bedrooms connected through an adjoining bathroom. One bedroom has a balcony that over looks the well maintained front yard and street, the other a balcony that overlooks Kandy. Also on this level is a rooftop terrace that is half shaded and half open with a range of potted plants and spectacular views over Kandy. Whilst there is AC in the rooms, we felt no need to use it because the house itself is cooled by fresh breezes and fans to move the air. The wifi is strong throughout the house, particularly in the first floor main living area. Breakfast was included in our stay and we benefited from Mufi and her helper's amazing cooking. For two of our three breakfasts we opted for a Sri Lankan breakfast, which comprised of fruit, string hoppers, coconut nann, ordinary nann, mallung, dahl and a range of other curries. One breakfast we had a traditional English breakfast comprising of fruit, eggs, baked beans, toast and sausages. Tea was available throughout the day and there was a water cooler for our use so that we did not have to purchase bottled water. Mufi herself went above and beyond to make us comfortable in her house and to assist us in organizing activities in and around Kandy. She provided us with numerous options for things to do in Kandy and was well connected in the community. Under her guidance we visited a number of well known and lesser known attractions as well as eateries and more. Usefully, she connected us with a friendly tuk tuk driver who was available at a reasonable rate. We cannot recommend Home away Home highly enough.

Our host Muffi was so kind and hospitable which ensured an enjoyable stay in Kandy. She assisted us with a driver, booked a table at a lovely restaurant and recommended the sights to see during our brief stay. Her beautiful home with lovely views of the hills and positioned in a quiet area was the perfect place to return to and relax. We look forward to returning here one day and staying with her and her family again. Peter and Lisa.

We are a family of six, and had booked three rooms for 4 nights. We had a good stay and Home Away Home. Mufi was very kind and helpful, giving us pointers on which places to visit and arranging the taxi and tuk tuk drivers for us. It was a beautiful house but the rooms were a little small and cramped. But besides that we had a very pleasant stay.

"Home away Home" is definitely the right name for this accommodation. My family and I stayed her for three nights during our Christmas holiday and had a splendid stay. This spacious house, situated on the hillside just above the city centre with a magnificent view, is an architectural gem over many floors with a central atrium and bridges and stairs connecting the rooms and levels. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious, well equipped and spotless clean. All rooms have separate verandas, and in addition there are verandas in every floor. Nevertheless, the stay wouldn’t be as perfect without the host Mufi’s efforts to make our stay as pleasant as possible. She prepared the most delicious food for us and introduced us to Singhalese cooking. In the early evening the nice smell of frankincense was spread out in the house and made an atmosphere of 1001 nights. Mufi was very helpful in all ways. She even booked train tickets for us several weeks in advance our stay, and organized all our transport for sightseeing in and around Kandy. When the taxidriver couldn’t come when we had to leave for the train, she and her daughter’s boyfriend drove us to the train station. Mufi is also a perfect guide for those who are interested in shopping, and led us to the right shops with good quality and made sure we got Singhalese prices. She gave good suggestions for restaurants and made sure that we got a table. Saying all this Mufi has a warm heart for all people, is open-minded, and shows interest in peoples life. We were also introduced to her family – husband, son and daughter who all showed us friendliness.

My family of 2 small children and my Sri Lankan helper, plus another couple friend of ours, stayed at Mufi’s house and I only have wonderful thing to say. •Communication was easy and fast. She has replied my messages really fast and was very reassuring that she would do her best to make us feel at home. •She was very accommodating, since, at the last minute, we had to add an extra day, then an extra room for a couple friends of ours, then an extra room for our driver (who had many references. She will not accommodate just any driver). •The rooms and house were spotless clean. The bathrooms have great fixtures and the beds are clean and comfortable. •The house is AMAZING. I dare say the best house in Kandy. The view is breathtaking, she has some great pieces of furniture and my 3 year old was amused by the fish pond. •Her kids, who are actually young adults, were pretty busy with their own lives but were very polite when we met them. I must add she has been doing a great job raising them! •Breakfast was incredible! Mufi is a great cook, and seems to enjoy doing it. •She has amazing stories to tell. She is quite an accomplished woman and a lot can be learned from her. •She took charge and made arrangements for all of our activities, including making reservations at restaurants and communicating to the driver. So we just had to get into the car and see what was waiting for us. All the places were great. •She has some cats and dogs, but they were away and never bothered us. My husband is actually allergic to cats but did not suffer at all. Finally, I can say that this was a great experience in Sri Lanka and that Mufi became a sister to me. Hopefully we will meet again.

My family stayed at Home away in Kandy towards the end of our 12 days trip in Sri Lanka. This was our first trip to Sri Lanka and we were glad to have chosen Home away. This was far the best place we stayed in Sri Lanka. Our host Mufi and her family were so warm and welcoming we felt right at home with them and their home. We had two adult sons so having a two bedroom apartment, super comfortable beds, hot water and fast internet was great! breakfast was delicious. We stayed only one night in Home away as we needed to travel the next day to Colombo to catch our flight out the following day. Mufi was very helpful with information on where best to buy tea and spices and even offered to take me to the batik shops. Mufi organised within few hours a transport to take us to Colombo. Home away is a beautiful home and Mufi is an excellent host. I recommend Home Away to anyone visiting Kandy, Sri Lanka.
