Hi, I am Gerard, I like if you call me ALEX. I started renting one room and with due respect to all my past guests now I have three rooms for you. I serve authentic Sri Lankan meals, and organize tours at a reasonable price.
I love to walk and those who want to walk with me can join me when you are here. When you are in Kandy I recommend you to do a trekking at Knuckles Mountains and if you love camping then you can do it at Knuckles.
