About This Listing
Explore Kandy from the comfort of an architecturally designed house with beautiful garden. It's airy, bright and spacious. The house, though centrally located, is a haven of peace and tranquility to relax and unwind after a day's travel.
This beautifully designed house comprising two independent apartments (duplex) is conveniently located in a quiet residential area in Kandy off the main Colombo - Kandy road just 1 Km to Kandy City Centre/ Kandy Lake. There is a well manicured front garden and a small backyard.
The ground floor apartment, listed on Airbnb for short term holiday rental, consists of two bedrooms, a washroom, spacious living/ dining area and pantry. The house is fully furnished (sofa set, dining room suite, 3 beds, wardrobe, dressing tables, garden furniture, etc) and the pantry fully equipped (microwave oven, gas/electric cooker, rice cooker, popup toaster, refrigerator, etc).
There is easy access to public transport; all tourist attractions are within easy reach. Malls and food outlets are available at walking distance. It's a 10 minute walk to Kandy railway station and 20 minute walk to Kandy City Centre, lake, Temple of the Tooth, and main bus station. The beautiful Peradeniya University Campus and the Royal Botanical Gardens are just 3 kilometres away.
The house is ideal for a couple or a small family. If you wish, you may water the plants, feed the fish and cook your own meals. Relax, feel at home in Kandy and enjoy the beautiful hill capital of Sri Lanka.
The entire ground floor house is given to one party at a time. So, the guests have privacy and exclusive access to the whole of the ground floor house and the gardens.

Athula was extremely helpful, giving us lots of tips and advice. The property is well described. All the rooms are spacious and bright. The kitchen is well equipped. The villa has a very attractive garden and is well situated about 1km from the centre of Kandy
Realy nice place. Near to the railway and bus station. Clean and spacious apartment. Comunication with Athula was perfect. Definitely recomanded. Thank you
Set in a quiet lane off the crazy Peradinya Road this was a leafy, tranquil and spacious place to spend time while visiting Kandy. The host was fantastic and made us feel incredibly welcome.
Nice house, clean and perfect for a family. Close to center by tuk tuk and really quiet.
Highly recommended !
Athula explained extensively (by means of text messaging and e-mail) how to get to the appartment, where a very friendly caretaker was waiting for us. Couldn't have asked for a better service. The appartment was very nice and much bigger than I had anticipated. Everything was clean and the house has a homey atmosphere. The kitchen is well equiped.
Our stay was very pleasant. Especially during the hectic Esala Perahera festival it was very soothing to come home to this quiet but well situated appartment with a nice outside area for our 5 yo son to potter about. City centre is reached easily by just getting on the first bus, which will drop you off in a matter of minutes. Highly recommended for families.
