This is a very calm neighbourhood with very friendly people around. We also have our deputy minister of higher education living a few houses down, so the street is quite secure :-).
Our home is very dear to us, so please respect and treat it as your own and please respect the peace of the neighbourhood. Other than that, enjoy and make yourself at home! :-)
Wir wurden sehr freundlich von der Haushälterin aufgenommen.
Das Haus liegt etwas abgelegen, aber man kann Matale gut erreichen, um etwas einzukaufen.
Wir hatten bevorzugt die Küche von Siria auszuprobieren und waren teils begeistert!Die beiden Tage gingen schnell vorbei, denn wir hatten unsere Ausflüge geplant.
Wir möchten zum Haus selber bemerken, das der Aufenthaltsraum und das Schlafzimmer uns gefallen haben, aber das Bad doch renovierungsbedürftig ist.
Unser Fahrer war gut untergebracht.
Une très belle maison. Deux personnes sur place pour notre service (ménage, repas, information...). Repas délicieux. On c'est promener on Tuk Tuk. Demander à aunty de vous organiser les déplacement en Tuk Tuk pour éviter les arnaques. Le chauffeur de Tuk Tuk de aunty est très correct. Bref une moment très agréable, une très belle expérience, reposant, très beau paysage. Merci encore a aunty et Uncle pour leur service.
Schönes gepflegtes Haus in ruhiger Umgebung mit bester einheimischer Verpflegung und hilfsbereitem Personal.
Hi I am Chandra from Singapore would very much describe my stay at Hansi's Traditional home. It was an awesome stay. My family and I stayed for 12 days we really felt homely. Both the caretakers Siriya and Ranga were very helpful and friendly. We really liked and enjoyed our stay there. I would really love to stay at Hansi's home during my next trip to Sri Lanka. I would strongly recommend Hansi's home to anyone who visits Sri Lanka.
Hansi's place was terrific! The caretaker was a delight and made the best dishes. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The place is very far off the beaten path and a driver would be recommended. The neighborhood is very safe and the house itself quite beautiful, just somewhat difficult to find. Also, the caretaker and gardener also live on the premises, which at first was unexpected to find out, but ultimately made the experience that much more enjoyable.
Highly recommend it! Hansi and Siriya help on everything we need! We spent wonderful days here and minis them so much!
