This place is even better than the beautiful pictures. The scenery is unbelievable and the entire atmosphere is extremely relaxing. I visited with my wife and 2 small children and we enjoyed the time very much. Liz and Luc were fabulous and welcoming and accommodated all of our requests. The food served was extremely good and we were thankful for the good quality. It was a fantastic time and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
Liz and her family are very welcoming and warm hosts. Her driver gave us a lift from the railway station to the house right upon the hill. The view up there is beautiful and an attraction itself. And so is the accommodation. Even from the bed you can see the beautiful landscape and the bathroom is luxuriously equipped. Dinner was always very delicious and we could even enjoy Liz' Shepherd's Pie, which was simply amazing. The dogs are very friendly an the whole family takes care, that you'll feel comfortable with them - though there's no real need, they're adorable. All in all one could simply stay there upon the hill, drinking tea and enjoying the view. But if you want to do some sightseeing in Sri Lanka, we highly recommend the house driver. He drove us down near Hambantota to the middle of nowhere. All the trip long he was very reliable, helpful and a pleasant company. Thank you!
Wonderful relaxing stay Liz and family were friendly and gave great service. Delicious food with a great view to go with it, dishes made fresh with veg from out of the garden. Lovely swimming pool to cool down in. You can have a stress busting massage again looking at a panoramic view
Liz was more than happy to help with onward travel .
This was a fantastic place to stay. The place is beautiful with a panoramic view and the host could not have been nicer. We ate one terrific dinner there. Another bonus is that they were able to do laundry for us. It is a long way from the city but Liz was very helpful about arranging transportation.
Wow - what a wonderful place and the most amazing hosts! Thank you so much Liz and Luke for a great time in your little paradise.
We had the best rice and curry and the best breakfast at your home during our 2 weeks vacation in Sri Lanka.
The house is magic, beautiful and well made. The view is stunning, but best of all is your warm welcomeness and good spirit. We enjoyed the talks by the dinner table and your travel advice.
Also a big thanks to your driver for taking us to Kandy city centre and later to Dambulla and Habrana.
Love and kisses
Christophe and Liv
Amazing time at a superb house with great views. The photos don't do the place justice, the panoramic views is ridiculous. You are made to feel incredibly welcome by both the family and the dogs! The food is also up there with some of the best we ate in Sri Lanka and very cheap for what you get. When I return to Sri Lanka I will definitely come back..
My wife and I had a very memorable time at Liz's beautiful home high up in the hills with unforgetable Panoramic vistas
We were looked at after like royalty and Liz's 15 year old son Luke made a very professional approach
The food was some of the best we had on the island and very competatively priced
Keep up the good work Liz and Luke
PS Make sure your driver gets the right directions
What a lovely family, we want to give 7 stars for the view, food, room and most imoortantly their hospitality and personality. its a very nice experience to meet a sweet family like that.
I stayed in the main house for 3 nights in February with Liz and her Family! Everything was wonderful. Liz was kind enough to help me plan my stay in Stunning Sri Lanka! WOW totally gorgeous. Liz is a wonderful hostess. She arranged her sweet driver who I call SoulPath to pick me up from the airport and take me to the elephant orphanage, tea plantations, waterfalls, and shopping!
Liz's home is A Gem. The photos don't do it justice. The House Staff and Liz's Children are great! The breakfast was a three course meal absolutely delicious.
I recommend staying here and look forward to returning again!
I don't actually know where to start to praise this place ... I am still overwhelmed by our visit at Summit View and Liz and her family. This is probably one of the most beautiful places I have ever had the luck to stay at. The view is beautiful beyond description - if paradise has any resemblance to what we know from life on earth - it must be this! Liz and her son Luke are such great hosts, welcoming, helpful and attentive and still giving you enough room to feel the quiet and peace of this hidden gem. Our daughter loved every minute of her stay here, the dogs, the cat, the pool, the stylish bathroom, the comfortable bed (although it was difficult to convince her to actually use the latter ;-)). Dinner, which we booked at a great extra price, was delicious and plentiful as was the sumptuous breakfast taken on the lawn in front of the house with this view to die for! We hope to be able to come back and stay longer! It takes about 40min to get here from Kandy, so to be able to have dinner here is a great extra. And of course you will be totally off the beaten track, which is something we love! Thank you so much, Liz and Luke! Hope to see you again soon!
