Peace Heaven is an ancestral home. Situated away from the busy city life, surrounded by greenery and right behind the temple of the tooth, There you find “Peace Heaven” – A true haven of peace.
This is a spacious 6 bed roomed house which had provided for multi generations. Situated on a few acres of land with every fruit tree imaginable, with roughly 5000 Sqr Feet, with a separate servant’s quarters and an open hearth kitchen while being decorated with a minimalistic point of view, but with all necessities a tired traveler may need. After a day of travels you need to relax and soothe your soul. If you choose you can relax on the grounds, under trees and have lunch or dinner outside.
The open hearth kitchen, we feel is special since in this day and age not many homes have the space for it. Food cooked in an open hearth clay pot is certainly smoky and flavorful than meals cooked in an indoor gas or electric cooker.
The house is currently been cared for by Mrs. Chitra Ranasinghe, a retired director of education at the Ministry of education. She is also a former principal of the Teachers College- Peradeniya. She has educated millions. And she has been a wonderful mother as well.
The area that the house is located in a highly residential and sort after area, Quiet and homely. You will also find a summer house at the edge of the property if you need more peace and quiet. There are a couple of village shops for basic needs. If you’re looking to stay in a big spacious house that gives you peace and quiet and security, this is it. Its rented out on a per night basis at a much less rate than any other hotels in Kandy.

We had such a wonderful stay at peace-heaven. No wonder why this is its name. The room was big and so was the bed. Hot water. Its about 10 min to go to downtown but well worth it since Kandy is very noisy. Shamil is a great host. She prepared an amazing breakfast (hoopers). I highly recomend to stay at Shamil's place.
Amazing house in the nature, nice people - everything needed for perfect stay!
We stayed at Chitras home for two nights and we are so happy that we found this place and were able to to get to know Chitra.
The room was a very big room with a huge bed, moscito net and a shared bathroom door to door. We had a fan and a large window to the lovely garden.
It took about 10 minutes into the city center and that was perfect, because of the noise and the crowded streets we left behind, when we got back to Chitras house.
Gajan, the TukTuk-Driver Chitra trusts in and the one she recommended us, did a great job aswell. Fair prices, a secure, reliable and on time driver!
Breakfast and dinner were both delicious and Chitra even showed us the garden with all the spices. We also got a bag with spices to use at home :-)
Chitra, thank you for everything! We wish you and your family all the best. We hope, that many guests will enjoy staying at Peace Heaven.
Even if you are a little bit far from Kandy center (10/15mn by tuk-tuk, 300 Rs), it's not a bad thing because the city can be really noisy. But the house is in a very relaxed area and staying here was great. Shamil's really nice mother is taking care of you, trying to help you as much as she can, she's patient and makes very good food. Relaxing in the garden where grows all the fresh spices that you will have in your plate was the better thing.

Worst Place i have been.
We left earyler.
Als wir ankamen gab es keine nette Begrüßung und auch kein welcome drink.
Die Frau zeigte uns unser Zimmer und gab uns eine Tasse Tee.
Danach telefonierte sie wieder oder guckte tv. Was sie auch abends direkt vor unsere Tür tat.
Der Schreibtisch im Zimmer war mit einem uralten Computer vollgestellt.
Das mit anderen zu nutzende Bad wimmelte besonders auf dem Klodeckel von Ameisen.
Belüftet wurde das Klo ohne Fenster natürlich in unser Zimmer.
Als ich ihr das Klo zeigte holte sie die chemische Keule raus und alles war sauber.
Allerdings unser Zimmer mit zwangsklobelüfung ebenso verpestet.
Das Mückennetz hatte lauter Löcher
In ganz Sri Lanka haben wir keinen Menschen getroffen der so unfreundlich war. Während des gesamten Aufenthalt hat sie nur mit uns gesprochen wenn wir nach dem Weg fragten.
Die Wohnung liegt sehr abgelegen. Ohne Taxi ist es sehr weit auf der großen Straße zur City.
Wir sind früher ausgezogen und haben in der Stadt ein Zimmer gebucht. Tausendmal besser.
Ich verstehe nicht warum Menschen bei AirBnB Zimmer vermieten wenn sie keine Gäste bei sich haben wollen.
Der Garten ist ein Witz.
Das einzig positive aus meiner Sicht war die große Schlange die wir vor dem Haus getroffen haben.
Die einzige in 4 Wochen.
Shamils place is very nice located in a quite area. It is perfect to slow down!
Although the bathroom was not clean enough for me I felt well hosted by Shamils mother. She is a great cook and wants the best for every guest!
