  • Host was lovely, he helped us arrange transport easily and gave us local tips. He even provided us breakfast to go for our early train ride one morning.

  • Great little place. Champs dad was brilliant. Champ organised a taxi from the airport, and was great at keeping communicating with us. We only stayed one night and wished we’d stayed longer - just for the hospitality. The pool is very nice, room great, and thanks for giving us a fantastic take away breakfast for the early morning train. Highly recommended.

  • Loved Champ’s parents place - the garden is amazing and the room ever nicer than in the pictures. The Sri Lankan breakfast was also one of the best we’ve had here! Really recommend this as a little oasis to stay slightly out of the city centre when visiting Kandy.

    Anna2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • The room was very nice and it was great to have a fridge to keep cool water in and a way to make extra coffee/tea. Hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfasts were delicious.

    Elizabeth2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house with nice host. Bed is big and confortable. You have to walk 15-20 min or take a tuk tuk to reach the center . But the distance is not a problem. Just sad that due to the oasis inside we did not have lot of sun around the pool.

  • Loved our stay here!!! An absolute oasis in busy Kandy with monkeys and birds in the beautiful garden and the prettiest bedroom we stayed in during our trip. Its a short drive into the centre of Kandy, but having seen how hectic it is, we were glad to have a bit of calm. The very best thing about this gem of a place however is Champ’s dad, such a friendly and knowledgeable man! We were only here for one afternoon / evening and were a bit unsure of the best plan. He arranged the perfect itinirary (gardens, a wander around the lake, kandyan dancing, temple visit and a great dinner spot) and booked our Tuk Tuk driver Gehan who picked us up and dropped us off for the whole day for a very reasonable fixed price. He was bang on time, every single pick up, and answered all of our questions about the city. If you want to get through traffic in a hurry - Gehan is your man. He took us to a lovely lookout point on our way home at the end of the day. Champ’s dad was also brilliant at giving advice for our train to Ella the next day, arranged for Gehan to take us to the station and packed us a lovely breakfast for our trip. Would recommend to anyone looking for a very warm welcome, and a bit of peace away from the city.

  • Perfect peaceful retreat in chaotic kandy. Great and very helpful host with amazing authentic and filling breakfast!

    Harriet2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much, we had a lovely stay in Kandy. they helped arrange transport with our trip and with recommendations as to where to eat and drink. The place really did feel like a paradise within the city!

  • Champ’s parents who manage the place are just wonderful! Incredible breakfasts every morning and helpful tips on transport and site-seeing. Incredibly hospitable, generous and kind family. We had a wonderful stay and particularly enjoyed the rooftop pool. Thanks for everything.

    Olivia2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • It is a wonderful villa in the middle of a beautiful garden. The pool is nice. The hosts are very-very kind and helpful. The villa is closed to Kandy Lake. There are pharmacy, post office and groceries in the near.

    Monika2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • What a brilliant stay! Champ's instructions/directions and contact leading up to our stay was brilliant! We were allowed to check in at anytime the day of arrival which really helped! Champ's dad was second to none in helping us out, advising us and giving us handy tips for our stay. The breakfast that he laid on each morning was amazing! He even allowed us to try some true Sri Lankan snacks! The only thing i would say is that it was a little noisy from the road (as there were roadworks) going on when we were up on the roof/plunge pool area, but that's just life! We were very happy with our accommodation and the location was about a 10 min tuk tuk ride into Kandy which Champ's Dad arranged for us whenever we wanted to go into Kandy. Brilliant stay!

    Michelle2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Champs place. Loved all the extra features - plunge pool, super comfortable bed, plush towels & great kitchen facilities. His parents were so friendly and couldn’t do enough to ensure we had a great time in Kandy. Thank you Champ. Regards, peter and Caroline.

    Caroline2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great space outside of the hustle and bustle of Kandy. There are still roadworks outside so it’s not quite as peaceful as it could be, but they are due to be finished soon. The room is very comfortable, with a lovely bed. We loved sitting up by the pool in the refreshing breeze. Champ’s Dad is a wonderful man. Really interesting to talk to & he organised drivers for us all the time. He also made yummy breakfasts. With the roadworks it’s impossible to walk into Kandy at the moment, but cheap to get a tuk tuk. A memorable visit.

    Tracey2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing airbnb experience. Champs communications were really quick. Place was amazing and roof top area nice to relax. Breakfast and hospitality provided was brilliant along with local knowledge provided. Our days out were all organised with our tuk tuk driver who was great in taking us to excursions and whatever we wanted. Highly recommend

    George2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • What a place! Everything from the delicious breakfast, quiet location and beautiful apartment made for a great stay. It’s the perfect place to come back to and enjoy a beer on the terrace after a busy day exploring.

    Sophie2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • First class communication from Champ, who is in the UK, and amazing hospitality from his mother and father, who run the place. The room and pool couldn't be better. Can't rate it highly enough!

  • We were unlucky to meet 1st restrictions connected with COVID-19 in Sri Lanka. Our vacation was under a big question. Lalith, the host, did everything possible and impossible to help and to comfort us. Yapa, the driver, was very kind to drive us everywhere it was still possible. Justin cooked the delicious food and helped us in our daily needs. It wouldn't have been such a safe a pleasant stay, if we would have chosen another place to stay. I am eternally grateful for all help and hospitality. A family from St.Petersburg

    Anna2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing, Justin made the stay what it was. He went above and beyond for every thing. We celebrated my girlfriends birthday whilst here and he went out without hesitation to buy a birthday cake with her name written on and candles. Every meal he cooked was amazing too. The place itself has an amazing view, whatever time of day its beautiful to look at. Also very cheap for what you get. Would highly recommend

    Alex2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful villa to rest. Clean and tidy. Villa in very good condition. The pool is very clean. The location of the villa on the hill gives a breathtaking view of the valleys. Very good food prepared by Justin (you can order on-site at prices 3-6 USD - which we did not know). Special thanks to Justin for looking after us and for safe travels from Yapa. Really worth.

    Wanda2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning location with outstanding views across the hills. We were very well looked after by Justin who did a great job cooking for us.

    Richard2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • A secluded gem with amazing views, highly recommended

    Ishaq2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay here, perfect house for a big group. The housekeeper was incredibly friendly and helpful, we loved the pool and the view was stunning. Would definitely stay here again!

    Alexandra2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Justin was an exceptional host. From the first contact we felt comfortable. Discreet when necessary present when necessary. It also offers meals as good as better than at the restaurant! I recommend it a thousand times

    Fayçal2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Felt like heaven. Everything about the place was surreal. Justin and Yapa are the best caretakers and driver you can ask for. They are the soul of the place

  • Lotte & Shadwell welcome you into their most stylish and luxurious home. The property is of the highest end. If you are looking for somewhere in nature to relax whilst enjoying the company of a very kind and interesting couple then this is the place for you. Having praised the property so highly though, our parting thoughts were the immence kindness of Lotte & Shadwell after our little girl got an infection at our previous hotel. We will be forever grateful.

    Stuart2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in the villa was very nice! We liked the peace, the view and the surroundings. The food we were offered was very varied and delicious.

    Laura2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • The stay at Lotte’s place was outstanding! The villa itself is absolutely stunning and Lotte & Shadwell are very kind and generous. We felt very welcome in their house. Lotte even took us to a very nice temple during our stay. Furthermore, they have extremely nice staff and a very good cook. It is definitely worth to spend a few days in this wonderful environment. Thanks Lotte!

    Christian2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place is exquisite. Words don't describe it. The layout of the villa is a wonder, the interior so in tune with its surroundings, which are themselves jaw dropping. The view is to die for. Add to that Lotte and Shadwell, who go above and beyond to ensure everything is expertly tended to. I was travelling solo, on my first trip to Sri Lanka and they took me completely under their wings and treated me as a member of their family, acting as personal tour guides from the moment I landed. AirBnB was founded for experiences like this; book in immediately.

    Nina2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • A truly unique and memorable experience. The property is simply stunning. Lotte and Shadwell are the quintessential hosts and whilst they live on the property, the space is private and large enough to enjoy time out relaxing. The property is quite a way out of town, however we enjoyed most of our meals at the villa, and the candlelit dinners were a highlight of our trip.

    Cara2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • We are actually having a hard time adjusting to our regular life at home after staying in amba villa. We were just spoiled there, the villa is so beautiful, the views are incredible, the food beyond amazing and the hosts and staff are incredible. Above and beyond amazing. We are so happy to have had the privilege of staying here and we can’t wait to be back. Highly highly recommend.

    Alex2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • The villa is stunning! The photos looks great, but the reality is even better. Lotte and Shadwell took so good care of us. Lovely people. If you book this place you will get luxery right in the middle of beautifull nature. I hope to be back here someday.

    Kristian2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing property, photos and words can’t explain the beauty and peacefulness of this villa and surrounding countryside. Whether lying by the pool, having a drink looking out over water below or chilling out under the Mango tree in the stunning gardens you will instantly relax! The villa is stunning and the food delicious. Lotte, Shadwell and their lovely staff are fantastic hosts. This is a special property that I wouldn’t hesitate in booking.

  • Great location near the lake! Had only one short night in the flat itself but very good value for the stay. The real highlights was the hospitality of the two brothers and one of them was our personal driver for the entire time, helping us make the most of our short time in Sri Lanka.

    Lucine2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Quite convenient location, good breakfasts: local cakes were given to us for the first time for several houses in Sri Lanka. The fruits are good, but not as much as the owners give on the coast. Hot water in the bathroom must be turned on at the entrance. Wifi is great. Recommend.

    Igor2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying with Navinda and his brother. They were so hospitable, polite and kind. We arranged a pick-up and drop-off from the airport an Navinda also arranged tours to see local sights for the 3 days we were there. The house is lovely with a beautiful view. And we would love to stay there again on our next trip to Kandy. The breakfast was delicious and the accommodation was really comfortable.

    Saunak2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place to stay with breathtaking views of the hills. Breakfast was perfect on both days. And Navinda was accommodating to our requests. There was a cockroach in two of the rooms on one of the evenings but I guess that’s common in Sri Lanka and did not affect our stay just something to be weary of! Thank you Navinda!

  • We stayed in bedroom 2 with our son! It was lovely that he could explore the outside balcony and we knew he was safe. Breakfast on the patio was sensational. We had beautiful views and the boys showed attention to detail with it all. It was fabulous. The room was a little dark and the walls a little thin but overall it was great and we would stay again. Location is fab. Walking distance to the lake and a couple of hotspots.

    Helen2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • It was great to stay at Navinda’s. He’s very helpful, friendly, and professional. The breakfast is amazing, and the view is just breathtaking. Everything you need is within a walking distance. Great person, and definitely recommended space..

    Kandy, Central Province, Sri Lanka

    The Square Peg is a quirky hotel located halfway up the legendary Bahirawakanda hill. It is within a 4 minute drive from the kandy Railway station (1.1km) 10 minutes by foot. 1Km to the Temple of the tooth and the Kandy lake. The rooftop lounge exclusive for inhouse guest offers breathtaking views of the entire city of Kandy including the historic Temple of the tooth, the Kandy lake, the old Bogambara prison and the Hanthana mountain range.
    The property has stairs and high balconies which are not suitable for kids below 14 years and/or guest with fear of heights.
    Probably the last remaining non touristy neighborhood so close to the city. The property sits in the middle of the most high-end residential neighborhood of Kandy on one side and a densely populated working class neighborhood on the other.
  • Our stay was really great even we’ve only stayed for one night. The view from the rooftop is amazing and we really enjoyed the breakfast and also the dinner - everybody was so nice and helpful :)

    Corinna2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The Hotel / Loft is located above the roofs of Kandy in the immediate vicinity of the famous Buddha statue. From the roof terrace you have an incredibly great view of the city, which makes the breakfast served there a real highlight. The rooms are new and modern. Large shower including hair dryer and towels available. Air conditioning works very well and lets you sleep at night with pleasant temperatures. The host is very friendly and tries to give good tips. The beautiful view naturally has the price that you are not directly in the city center and have to walk about 15-20 minutes to get there. As an alternative, there is the "PickMe" app, which, like "Uber", allows you to order TukTuks or cars for very little money (we paid around € 1 for the journey between the hotel and the train station). Another advantage is that the price is already fixed here and you don't have to argue with TukTuk drivers whether you pay more or less. All in all, the accommodation is highly recommended!

    Matthias2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay here! We were greeted with coconuts when we arrived, and we were shown how to get to various landmarks. Breakfast was lovely, we had freshly cooked omelettes, fresh fruit, coconuts and coffee - a great start to the day! The room was clean, stylish, and very spacious. We very much enjoyed our night at the Square Peg!

    Robert2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved everything! The team was so considerate and helpful. The design is unique, facilities are great. The rooftop-view stunning Do yourself a favour and go there.

    Jörg2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • This was the best place to spend our first night in Sri Lanka - a private driver picked us up for a very fair price and even the spectacles we left at the place were sent to us! Best communication host ever! The place looks as the pictures, the terrace is just amazing!!!

    Saskia2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Dinesh and the staff were super friendly and helpful! We loved our dinner (the curry is fantastic!). Our room was clean and we loved the interior design of the Loft. Totally recommend.

  • So happy we found this place! It’s a perfect location in the heart of Kandy city but up the hill enough to feel above the traffic and busy streets. The views are amazing, we spent a lot of time on the balcony enjoying the sites! The house is very spacious and comfortable - it’s suited our family perfectly. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals at home. Ruchira was very helpful and friendly, he was always there whenever we needed him. We had a lovely time in Kandy and would recommend anyone stay here, especially if you are a group.

    Susan2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic place. What a view. It's the most amazing couple of days we spent. Walked to the sacred tooth relic temple and generally could walk to all the nearby restaurants and bakeries.

    Aviroop2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The house is as spectacular as it is in the photos. May be even better in terms of views, room settings, furnishings. Great place to stay while in Kandy. Not too far from the touristic places. Kitchen is well equipped to cook. We made a mistake by not carrying the basic essentials for cooking or for having a cup of tea even. Carry that if you are planning to have anything. Sparklingly clean. Ruchira was a great host. Helped us in getting there and even in getting our food delivered.

    Shreya Satish Chandra2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing gem amidst the bustling downtown if Kandy. If you are at Kandy, never miss a chance to stay here

    Suhas2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • 1. The location is good, you can take a taxi with a little slope 2. There is too little hot water in the bath. 3. The rooms are fully equipped and reasonably designed to make me feel at home 4. The room is not far from various attractions, and the supermarket is also very close, which is very convenient 5. If you have a chance to come to Kandy, definitely stay here again. Thanks to the host for adding points to my journey, thank you!

  • This house was so much more than what we expected. Lovely setting ! Awesome view of the lake and the famous tooth relic temple . It was a short walk from the temple and city center . I was so disappointed not to have stayed longer . From the moment we entered the house we were wowed by the view, friendliness of Ruchira . He even helped us trace our driver next morning who we had difficulty finding .. over and beyond all expectations. If you plan to stay in Kandy for a few days , weeks or months - this is the place !

  • Bernard and his wife are very welcoming and it is very easy and pleasant to chat with them. The person who helps them is very available and very caring! The massage on demand is done by Samantha who is very good, he is very professional. The breakfasts are super good and the view is worth the detour !! I highly recommend this place.

    Claire2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Bernard and his wife Uma were very welcoming hosts and terrific cooks. With us being tourists that hadn’t made a plan for Kandy, it was the perfect home to land at with Bernard helping us plan a day trip the next day. He took us on a full day trip including a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast experience which was a highlight. He has wealth on inside knowledge which he happily shared with us on our road trip up North. His price was very reasonable especially with the added benefit of having a personable experience. We would highly recommend Bernard’s home if you are on a budget and want a homely vibe with hosts that look after you. Location is also close to town but with a lovely view over the city and you feel like you can relax.

    Melissa2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Bernard's place is delightful, the hospitality is outstanding, and the location is very convenient.

    Samuel2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Bernard’s place is one of a kind! Where else would you find a koi pond in the kitchen!?! Suranga who manages the guest is a super host himself. He prepares a huge healthy breakfast. The views from this villa are simply amazing. I’ve stayed in nearly 100 AirBnbs and this is in the top 5%. The neighborhood is super quiet but there are markets and shop just 200 meters away. Tuk-tuk to town is 150 to 200 rupees. I would love to stay here again and when I return to Kandy I will. Bernard’s place is an outstanding value and I super highly recommend it!!!

    Bill2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We were warmly welcomed with tea and cake by Bernard's wife. Both spoke English very well and gave us good tips. We had a small apartment with a bedroom, bathroom (there was hot water) and a kitchen. Everything was very clean. The absolute highlight was the breakfast on the roof terrace with a fantastic view over Kandy and up to the Ambuluwaawa tower. We can recommend Bernhard and his accommodation wholeheartedly!

    Katharina2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • A great place, better than we expected. Very nice hosts, excellent hospitality, helped with everything we asked and a very nice breakfast. Highly recommended!

    Frans2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • We’ve had a wonderful stay at Bernard’s place. His wife welcomed us very warmly and we had a lovely cup of tea on their balcony. They were very accommodating and the flat was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was also delicious with fresh fruit and Sri Lankan curries. We would definitely recommend staying at their place and would love to stay again! Many thanks!

    Amy2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay! The house keeper was so lovely and gave us a great tour around and outside kandy!! Definitely would stay here and again and recommend to others

    Phoebe2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • I absolutely Loved Rasika’s place. I knew I would from the photos, and other reviews. Very stylish, yet simple, minimalistic space. Good natural light, nice views, private, and peaceful. Yet close enough to Kandy town. A little tricky with GPS, but Tharanga the caretaker was very helpful. I suggest you have him come pick you up. And yes the Monkeys will come inside as they did one day when I was in the bedroom, but they ran out when they saw me...🐒 All in all a perfect stay for me, will be back again...

    Andrew2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Rasika's home is beautiful, the equipment is nice and the little sofa in front of the window can be relaxing after a long day in Kandy. Do not forget to bring earplugs as dogs can be noisy at night!

    Steve2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Rasika was very helpful from the beginning (time of reservation via Airbnb) and also arranged really great trip to NanuOya. The apartment has really great place to sit by the window with great view. I can totally recommend!

    Anna2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay - super nicely decorated with a great view. You wake up between the palm trees! Unfortunately it was very loud at night from the street and the barking dogs. There is a small kitchen with everything you need and a small shop down the stairs. You can only get to the accommodation by TukTuk / taxi, otherwise it is a long walk. We were immediately recommended a TukTuk driver who reliably picked us up from the train station and with whom we made a great trip the next morning from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya, with a stop at a tea plantation, waterfalls and a lunch spot. From there we could take the great train ride to Ella. We recommend!

    Elisa2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful space with minimalist touch and attention to details. Spacious living area, comfortable bed and clean bathroom along the side of well equipped kitchen. Creates an appealing space to relax for few days. Better for a couple or solo travellers.

    Sanjaya2020-02-15T00:00:00Z

  • Ireans House was realy nice and quite. The view over the River was fantastic, she was always helpful.

    Dorothea2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • 10/10 The property completely exceeded our expectations. It is right on the river. You have a large room with a large bathroom and can also use the kitchen and living area. The hospitality is exceptional. We received a very warm welcome and got great tips. The breakfast was super delicious, we were even allowed to request individual dishes. After our stay, we were driven by our own driver to the next accommodation for a fair price. We would always come back.

    Anneliese2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great spacious room with lovely balcony overlooking the peaceful river. Big comfy bed too! Irean was a fantastic host and cooked us a wonderful meal on arrival. Thank you!!

    Victoria2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Irean's place is a beautiful house and right next to the river. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. They have a washing machine so that was a boon to us after traveling for over 10days and having a lot of soiled clothes :) Irean is very helpful with whatever you need. She made sure our stay was very comfortable.

    Gajanan2020-02-18T00:00:00Z

    Andrew2020-01-28T00:00:00Z

    Sherene's Homestay offers you with comforts of a cosy home.It is nestled within city limits allowing you to explore Kandy while enjoying a hike in Udawatte Kele sanctuary.Bed for two awaits to replenish you in a relaxed atmosphere.
    A cosy bedroom for two awaits you at our lovely home situated within the city limits of Kandy, Sri Lanka. Surrounded by the scenic view of Kandy hills, our home is just 1 Km from the temple of Tooth relic and only 1.5Km from the railway station and the bus stand. The bedroom contains a comfortable double bed with cotton sheets and pillows and has an attached bathroom.
  • I had a great stay at Sherene's place for 2 nights. The family's place is in a street full of beautiful large houses and the architecture of the home itself is amazing. Stayed on the ground floor (the room without the balcony) and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in. Definitely worth paying the extra for the A/C in the warmer months, but you can decide for yourself when you get there. Sherene has uploaded a screen shot of Google maps in the AirBnB pics, worth using it as the live version of Google maps can send you in the wrong direction sometimes. Luckily she is easy to contact and fast to respond if your tuk tuk driver gets lost. Definitely check out the Botanical Gardens one afternoon if you are keen for a few hours of great walking to stretch the travellers legs. Her place is approx 350ish LKR to most places in town. I'm especially going miss Sherene's Mother in Law's wonderfull hospitality and her own mum's great conversation and literally the most lovely smile I have ever seen!

    Michael2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The place so good , nice big private vill the area is very nice calm and quiet , not faraway from the centre like 10 min with Tucktuck with cost of 250~300 LKR , nice place I highly recommended .

    Hammy2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • I had a nice stay in the spacious, clean and comfortable room located in the beautiful house in the calm neighborhood. Sherene and her mother were very welcoming. Thank you very much!

    Marija2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • A quiet place and helpful and caring hosts. I recommand.

    Nicolas2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Sherene and her family were lovely! The neighbourhood is very peaceful and perfect. The family even gave us some tips on where to visit in our super short time in Kandy. The room had everything that we needed. Would definitely recommend this place.

    Sophy2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • I had a pleasant stay at Sherene’s, who was very attentive and kind. I got some nice tips and had a brief chat with her husband. There is always somebody around the house, so coming and going is easy. The room is well maintained and has the basic equipment. The bathroom is clean and has warm water. Air conditioning would be extra, but there is a fan for free. I had breakfast only on the second morning, which was simple but really great, a pity dinner did not work out. The location is a bit off (which I was aiming for) but well in walking distance (15min) to Kandy Center. Only some Tuk-Tuk drivers would not use Google Maps or Pickme and then have problems finding it. Overall what I was looking for and thereby a solid recommendation!

    Christopher2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • An amazingly hospitable host, as this was the start of my trip in Sri Lanka, this would also be the start to some of the amazing hospitality I would receive. Recently I have been travelling mostly solo, when I use Airbnb so that I can find an incredible host I can stay with instead of just looking for a place on my own, well if that is also what you are looking for and you are going to Kandy then look no further, Sherene is the best!

    John2019-12-23T00:00:00Z

  • Place has a stunning view and well managed I regret to not able to stay longer

    Sajjad2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous place with an awesome view, great breakfast and a host Amila who gave great tips and directions for getting to and from the centre of the city. Having a kitchen at one's disposal was great. We were able to freeze our large water bottles so we had cold drinks the following day. We could store our food in the fridge for when we wanted a snack which was also great. Being on the road for 5 weeks in Sri Lanka eating out every meal gets to be a bit much so just having a lovely place to sit and have a light snack was wonderful. The photos of this place are accurate and the place is spotless. I am a clean freak and this place is very clean. There are bathroom amenities and the bathroom is large and spacious. We were asked what time we'd like breakfast and it was ready on time and it was so huge we could not possibly eat it all. We had a very nice variety of things to eat and enjoyed trying some of the local breakfast foods. The place was very quiet and the living room area was a nice place to sit and read. The air conditioning in the room was wonderful as it was a rather hot day and we had a nice cool place to sit and relax as our room was very large with a sofa and chair as well where once could read inside your own room if you did not want to sit in the common living room. Well worth checking Amila's place out as it was lovely. Thanks for a very enjoyable stay Amila.

    Nancy2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Villa 66 has a great view of Kandy city, it was a fun 20 minute walk downhill to the city center. To get back to the villa tuktuk or Uber is advised. Sri Lanka breakfast spread is nice. Anura, the caretaker is ever willing to help and guide, big thank you to him.

    Rajiv2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful view from the terrace from the room. Very friendly, helpful hosts. Polecam❣️

    Iza2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect for a short stay in Kandy. We enjoyed the beautiful view on the balcony. Easy communication and check in process. Recommended.

    Stoyan2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Amila has his house on a hilltop giving a spectacular view of Kandy. Have a tuktuk or 4 wheel jeep to get to the place. The place is very neat and they very thoughtfully arranged things for us in the house. There was a uncle to help us with things we need and he was very caring. Our traditional Sri lankan breakfast was delicious. We had a pleasant stay at Amila's place.

    Shwetha2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • possibly the best place i stayed in sri lanka. it is located on the hill, don't make the same mistake that I did, from Map it seems near, but the climb up is brutal especially with luggage. The remaining trips, one should use tuk tuk to go up for around 250rs, Pro tip: user U-B-E-R. The house is located among the wealthy locals i think, it is stylishly renovated, even better than my own home. The view over Kandy is spectacular, i spent a lot of time on their balcony. They have 2 caretakers, keeping the house very clean, one of them is a tuk tuk driver, remember to negotiate with him if you are engaging his ride

    Tony2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place for staying in Kandy. Its close to the train station and the Temple. Also its located in quiet area with very beatiful view from window. Also very modern and clean. And what is the most important - the hosts are very kind and helpful.

  • We stayed at Ezra’s place only one night, but it was enough to fully enjoy this beautiful apartment and hospitality of the host. The flat is really spacious, nicely decorated, clean and has a great kitchen! Hosts were very responsive, kind, prepared us a lovely breakfast and help with the transport organization:) Thanks for everything and hope to see you again!

    Marina2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a lovely place to stay while you are in Kandy. Plenty of space and beautifully appointed. The host provides good local information and is really helpful. Highly recommended.

    Gabrielle2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Ezra was away so his gorgeous Mother took care of us. She was so incredibly welcoming and kind and her English perfect (I believe she is quite multilingual!). The apartment is stunning with great style, spotlessly clean with lots of lovely added touches (including lovely bed linen!). It’s a great location, very close to the station and all amenities. I would highly recommend a stay here!

    Louise2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very comfortable three day stay in this exceptionally good apartment, which was convenient for visiting Kandy, (about 1km from lake and bus/train stations). Breakfast was very good, and there are lots of food options within easy walking distance. Undoubtedly deserves a five star rating.

    David2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

  • Our two nights at Hesh's place were really nice. They picked us up from the train station and took us to the homestay. Helped us out the best they could and cooked really delicious dinner for us. It's a bit out of town so we had to catch a tuk tuk or a bus but it only takes 10 minutes into Kandy town.

    Paulina2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location away from the hustle and bustle of Kandy City. Close to the bus and only LKR15 into Kandy. The room was awesome with a very comfy bed and a hammock to boot. Best shower since arriving in Sri Lanka!

    Emma2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Hesh‘s parents took really good care of us! We had some issues with our luggage and we were so grateful that they organized everything for us. It felt like a second home. Thank you!

    Nina2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • The place which is like 15 minutes away from kandy city was the best place we’ve stayed so far. It’s super clean and very lovely furnished. The hosts are super friendly and offer a free pick up service from rail way station if needed. If not, the given directions are very good. The hosts also offer lots of different day trip tours etc. You also can get breakfast, lunch and dinner. I’ve just had breakfast which was a bit overpriced ($5) but in general this place is a visit worth.

    Tim2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very friendly host! An airport pick up has been arranged for us also in the middle of the night.

    Hannah2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very Nice place. Very clean and cosy and Hesh and Lakshmi are Very nice and warm people. Highly recommend this place!

    Guilliana2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice service including pick up from train station. The room was also super comfortable and clean, we had a great time! Only the breakfast was unexpectedly pricey (5 USD/person) for a basic one. We recommend to ask for the price in advance or to rather ask for cheaper options in the neighborhood (they offer that as well, so don’t feel bad not taking their breakfast offer). But everything else was perfect! Thank you for this nice stay 🌞

    Johanna2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Such a fun place to stay, and it was made easy for us when everything was so well spelled out and organized! We had a great time and highly recommend Hesh's place!

  • I don't really know where to start. The home is absolutely gorgeous, the view from the bedroom and balcony are beautiful. During our stay we saw wild boar, monkeys, squirrels, mongoose and so many native and exotic looking birds, all from the balcony! Chamari and Nilan are the most lovelist of couples, very respectful and extremely helpful. Couldn't thank them enough for all the support during the covid-9 lockdown, they treated us like family and sorted out everything that we needed. So, of your after a perfect slice of heaven just out of the busy town centre. I definitely recommend staying here, I promise you will want to come stay again. It feels like a home and a holiday..a very fancy one.

  • Where do I start. The house itself is spectacular and the views from the top room and its balcony are the best I’ve seen so far. The hosts were friendly, helpful, so welcoming and never have I felt more at ease. I can not fault them one bit! Even through the corona virus situation that’s happening, it was so lovely to be welcomed. I would fully recommend staying here. Thank you for everything!

    True2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Nilan and Chamari, not only owns this beautiful minimalist in nature yet so close to nature house. But also owns your heart the moment you step into their place. Warmest smiles and biggest Hearts.. they will make sure you are not only treated as a guest but treated a happy one too. Nilan and chamari will steal your heart with their genuine gestures and will make sure you feel at home. A must recommend for people who wants to away from the hustle and go camouflage with nature. Pros : people who make you believe in humanity again. Cons: To good to be real 😊😊

    Pratibha2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was even more beautiful than in the pictures. Everything was very clean and stylish. Hosts are the most loving and friendly people and helped whenever they could. Couldn't have asked for more, we had a very great time

    Sergej2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts are some of the most friendly people we’ve met on our trip and they made our stay the best one possible. We even prolonged our stay bc it was so nice. Amazing house, very clean rooms and bathrooms, great view and atmosphere. Can only recommend. As two young, female travelers we felt very welcome and safe.

    Sophia2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • The place was great. Fantastic view from the room, and the owners were very nice. The place is very new and clean. It’s about a 15-20 minute tuk tuk away from Kandy, but we loved how quiet the area was. Kandy can get very busy so it was nice to get away from the noise. I would definitely recommend staying here. There isn’t much food nearby other then small snacks and water, but you can get food from Uber Eats or just eat in town before you would come. I would definitely recommend this place.

    Connor2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great host

    Charitha2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Chamari is an excellent host with a friendly family. She greeted us with a warm welcome and explanation of where everything was and even inquired on where to white water raft and advised us to uber within the area. Her place is as advertised, clean, and great balcony to enjoy the views and star gaze at night. Chamari even did my laundry and gave me a natural remedy which I was looking everywhere for. We loved it so much we extended our stay, thank you for welcoming us into your lovely home and thanks for the smoothie and lift to the train station, if it wasn’t for you we would’ve missed it. Best, Natalie and Adam

    Not your average hotel room with city noises, The breeze through bamboo trees is sensational. Try to spot the rare and endemic birds while you're sitting in the veranda, or a kingfisher swallowing a small fish as usual. You cant match the taste of homemade Sri Lankan food to a restaurant, Champikas curries with home blend spice will make your taste buds go wild. Whether you're travelling with your family or loved one our cottage is the place to be.
    Entire house for yourselves, complete privacy.
  • Wonderful place - highly recommended! And you should try traditional dinner, its very tasty.

    Elona2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great little place to stay. A little far away from town, but makes up for it with a tranquil setting suitable for anyone seeking some peace and quiet.

    Kolin2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice owners and very helpfull. The place is very peacefull and kozy. Best place to stay in Kandy if you need to chill! P.s. try Champikas curry (wauw)!

    Ervin2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay! The hosts was so welcoming and really went out of their way to ensure that our stay was top quality! Will definitely be back next time we’re in Sri Lanka! Champika`s husband also speaks good german. The food was a pleasure too.

    Daniela2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is a small house located in the vicinity of Kandy, you can accommodate not only together, but also the four of us. Around a lot of greenery, from the window overlooking a small ravine and a large bamboo. You can poyifovat on the veranda. Toilet, shower, warm water - everything is normal. The owners have two beautiful dogs, very friendly and affectionate. (one of them is a German shepherd). From here it is very convenient to get both to Candi and the botanical garden. There is an entrance directly to the house, you need to turn off the main road and drive steeply upstairs - it’s better to ask to be met on the road, since it’s difficult to find yourself right away.

    Dmitriy2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Champika is the sweetest mistress. The house is very cozy, large veranda with magnificent bamboo nearby. Nice to wake up near the window in which everything is green! Pleasant Sri Lankan village, immersed in greenery. Very natural, pure, cute! At the same time, everything is close by: transport stops, tuk-tukers, a grocery store, etc.

    Ekaterina2019-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at the bamboo house for 3 nights. The house was really cute and had a nice view on the big bamboo. Champika and her husband are great people and are willing to help you with everything. We had the best food so far! They really know how to cook!

    Cecile2019-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • If you like to escape from the loud city, this is the perfect place for you. It‘s a calm place surrounded by green. Champika prepared us a delicious dinner, which was really cheap. She also helped us organizing our trip. Thanks a lot.

  • This was our best air bnb stay ever. We are so in awe of our humble hosts. They made us feel like we were family. We miss them already and hope dearly that we will see them again in the future. They helped us doing our plans four our trips and even drove us to places we wanted to visit. We enjoyed their sweet and funny house pets. The highlight was Kalyanis COOKING. She fulfilled all our wishes. Meat, vegetarian or vegan: It was heaven. Our best meals in Sri Lanka!! If you get the chance to meet these lovley hosts and stay with them, we highly recommend it. There is no better homestay in Kandy than with Kalyani and Jagath. Thank you so much!

    Luzia2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • It is my second trip to Sri Lanka and to Kandy. I was so happy the first time thanks to Kayiani and Jagath that I stayed with them for the second time. They are my family in Sr Lanka. Their hospitality is to be compared with no other and I repeat what I commented 3 years ago. I join the loong list of guests who are lucky to know them and their inviting house. You will eat great food, sleep like a log and visit the most interesting places where they will choose to take you And you might come back like me.

    Baudouin2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • This was an amazing experience! If you want to stay with a Sri Lankan family and really feel like a part of that family, I truly recommend to stay with Kalyani and Jagath. The space is great, in a calm street just a few min by tuk tuk away from the city. Kalyani cooks deliciously so make sure to eat at home some times during your stay. I have nothing to complain about regarding this stay. Highly recommend!

    Evelina2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place with amazing hospitality. Any one pass by Kandy they should pass by Homely home.

    Ahmad2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Kalyani and Jagath are two amazing hosts. As soons as we entered their house we felt home. They cared so much about making our stay as confortable as possible, and even more. Kalyani showed us around the city (tea factory, botanocal garden) and gave us great tips for the rest of our trip. Would recommand this place to everybody that visits Kandy Thank you again

    Naïla2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend this Air BnB! Jagarth and Kalyani were by far the most gracious and helpful hosts we had throughout our time in Sri Lanka. From the moment we arrived they were genuinely warm and thoughtful. The food was amazing, they got our laundry done for us, and recommended an excellent driver who doubled as a very knowledgeable local guide. The flat itself was very comfortable and the location was peaceful and safe. I would book again anytime I found myself in Kandy!!!

    Marek2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Not enough could ever be said for the warm hospitality from Kalyani, Jagath, and Hasith. My first three days ever in Sri Lanka were spent here with them, and what a decision that ended up being — they are so sweet, will cook you INDREDIBLE meals, and are willing to take you on trips all around the city. If you’re in Kandy, stay here. It truly like revisiting a long lost relative. I look forward to coming back one day already. Thanks for everything. -Braden

    Braden2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing to stay. We stayed one night in Kandy and as soon as we arrived Kalyani was already making us feel at home with tea and cakes. You can also eat during your stay, incredible Sri Lankan food for unbelievable value. Even small touches like having a universal adapter makes all the difference. I can not fault this place.

    My place is close to the city center, family-friendly activities, and public transport. You’ll love my place because of the coziness and panoramic view of Mountains & Udawatte Forest just adjoining to land. . My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
    Structure of the room is very uncommon. Room is about 240 sq.ft and private balcony gives endless view of mountains. Attached bath with hot and cold water. Beautiful roof top terace helps you to relax yourself.
    This location is high residential area which is just 3 km away from the city centre. Panaromic view/ scenaries of mountains and surrounded by Udawatte sanctuary.
  • Anjana's place is in a great spot overlooking the jungle, a 10 minute Tuktuk ride from the centre of Kandy. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed, with air-conditioning and a great view our over the jungle. The rooftop seating area is a great place for relaxing and soaking in the sunset, as well as some monkey watching! Anjana's hosting was impeccable and we'd return in a heartbeat!

    Dan2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Anjana's place. He was very welcoming, spoke great English, and made sure we had everything we needed to be comfortable. The location was slightly outside of town making it a bit more peaceful. And the rooftop deck had killer views of the sunset.

    Sage2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

    Marion2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We highly recommend staying at Anjana's place. Great hospitality, amazing view from the room and rooftop, and very good breakfast were some of the best things that exceeded our expectations.

    Miloš2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Anjana’s for one night, as we were about to board the train from Kandy to Ella. Our room was spacious, clean and cozy. But the best feature was the common rooftop terrace, where we were treated to lunch, dinner and breakfast - all of them delicious. Not only did we get a takeaway lunch for the train ride, Anjana also have us a ride to the train station in the morning, as he needed to go to the town anyway. Altogether, a great stay.

    Simon2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Anjana’s place is just as described: great hospitality, clean and comfortable room, delicious Sri Lankan dinner ordered off the a la crate menu. Get it, you won’t regret it! We were only there for one brief night but would’ve stayed longer.

    Halimah2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the location outside of the city centre with amazing sunsets. We ate dinner on the first evening which was delicious as was breakfast. Lovely hosts - you'll have a great stay.

The next day he connected us to some tuk tuk drivers that really just made our day the best. Easy navigation, and they even suggested sight seeing places that ended up being way more than what we asked for. Thanks again for everything. Anyone coming into Kandy should highly consider using Navin and his expertise to make your stay great.

    Christopher2019-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • It was not the place, that made us so happy. Ok - of course, the villa is amazing, but honestly, the point why this place is magical is because of a person, who takes care about you. Anthony. Anthony is the butler of the house. And believe me, you will miss him more than the amazing view that reminds you of the private villa that Pablo Escobar had once. (Narcos Fans will understand that joke). Anthony (and we do not like to call him butler, as he became a friend) is there for you. He takes care in the morning, he takes care about your laundry, he makes you tea and he is a heart person. Anthony is the soul of the house. If you want to stay in a simple and clean house, we can suggest you this place for sure. It´s in a fancy area of Kandy, where you need to walk a bit down to get some food. Better is, you buy stuff in the center/city and store it at home. It´s a place where you can take rest and go out, pick a driver and enjoy Kandy. The owner is very professional and takes care, that everything will be perfect during your stay. This place deserves a review, but as we said: Anthony is the one who brings the magic in. Thanks for everything. And dear owner, please let Anthony know, that we wrote this message. Best, Roman, Alexandros & Princess Lynn.

  • My wife and spent 4 nights in Kandy at the Kandy City Stay Hotel. The staff were just fantastic with us, and the rooms were very comfortable. We switched from a superior king to a deluxe king which was facing the traffic noise so a bit noisy for sleeping. I'd strongly recommend the superior king as it was larger and very quiet. The staff at the hotel was amazing - friendly, informative, and ready to do anything to make our stay a positive one. The breakfasts we're very good (hint: order the very tasty Sri lankan breakfast!), and the dinner restaurant menu varied enough to satisfy any taste. I would recommend the hotel to anyone wanting to stay close to the City centre.

    Daniel2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Very good place to have rest for a few days in Kandy. Personal is very hospitality, always helped us. There are 10 minutes to Kandy center, and 8 minutes to Railway Station. Not bed kitchen (you may have tasty breakfast, dinner or lunch). Very good view from terrace where you can have a good time in evening with friends. Of course, it is not very clear - but its normal for Shri Lanka and India. It was expected for us) Such situation in all hotels we were. So, I recommened this hotel for you.

  • I really had a wonderful time in P&S cute villa. Our host Priya is such a kind person! I have stayed Kandy for two days and Priya's meal was the most delicious food I've eaten in Sri Lanka. She is an professional chef and displayed to me patiently the methods of cooking about traditional Sri Lanka food. Priya also gave a gift it's so nice. It is a lovely family. Sunil have given me some information about train times. It's really helpful. Priya's two daughters are very pretty and polite. In P&S cute villa just like being at home--- cozy and comfortable!

Situated a little outside of Kandy this place is quite peaceful compared to the city and offers good chances to watch all sorts of wild life from the terrace, while having a nice cup of tea. Dive into the lovely prepared currys, enjoy, and don't think about tomorrow. Had an excellent time there.

The accommodation is outside of Kandy, so quiet and in the nature, on the balcony and Terrace you has a lovely view. I can only recommend the hostel. The host Sunil has accompanied me to the airport Colombo by taxi itself.

    Our cheapest non-en suite compact room with private bathroom and small double bed that can sleep two. Equipped with mossy net, repellent and fan. Desk and chair stationed near window which opens out to nature. You will also meet our 2 friendly dogs, Mickey and Cookie, who live on the premises.
    Bordering the tranquil 'forbidden forest' of ancient royals, Kandy Town is just a ten-minute walk from Kandy Cottage. Rent one room or the whole house, for just one night, or for as long you like.
    Oasis amidst chaos is how most guests would describe us
  • Great secluded bungalow away from the hustle and bustle of Kandy. Thomas really welcomes you, is very committed and makes an excellent breakfast. The website is unfortunately not up to date, for example, no lunch or dinner is offered.

  • We totally recommend Kandy Cottage to anybody who loves to be surrounded by nature and prefers to have a quiet place for sleeping. Kandy is a very beautiful and exciting city, but also very busy. That‘s why we really enjoyed that our accommodation was a bit outside of the city center, but still only a few minutes by foot away. We were very lucky and saw some monkeys and deers in the garden. Our host Thomas made our stay in Kandy perfect. He had so many good recommendations and told us also a lot about the culture in Sri Lanka. We enjoyed every minute with him and hope to come back to this place on day!

    Jill2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • The house is nestled just at the start of a forest reserve and yet just a 10 minute walk to the city's Lake. I find this a perfect escape with a very natural and calm environment. It does get a bit dark at night so just keep your torchlight handy to walk back late at night. Thomas who takes care of the house was very helpful and advised accurate information to make my stay and travel in Sri Lanka easy.

  • Very very very good! Must give 5 stars praise! The room was clean and the bathroom was clean. The old man was optimistic, funny and hardworking. The breakfast was made by the father himself. The taste is very good. I especially recommend the fried egg and it is super delicious. I wish you good health.

    Lu2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • The Airbnb is fabulous! I’m Thomas is an amazing host. He we will be there for you the whole time!

    Kristin2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • I would highly recommend this place for a relaxed stay. Felt very homely and relaxing. The cottage itself was well kept and Thomas was very helpful. He went out of his way to ensure everything was okay and also gave me useful tips on whats best to do.

    Melissa2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • The best homestay in Kandy! Nishan is extremely caring and kind. He helped us buy train tickets gave us great tips for kandy and made the most delicious breakfast ever. The air bnb Kandy cottage is very close to the city(5min walk) but still in nature and very quiet. Away from the hectic kandy traffic, you can only hear animals and nature around you, which we found very calming. The house is beautifully furnished and very tidy and clean. There is really nothing that could be done better. Thank you Nishan!

  • We really enjoyed the stay in this place thanks to Shashi! He was really nice and helped us a lot and gave us some really good information. The Sri Lankian Breakfast was really delicious. We would definitely come again thanks to Shashi!

    Leo2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay very much! The room was totally clean and we got a welcome drink and refreshing towels. The balcony was nice because it’s surrounded by trees and therefore a calm and good place to relax. Also you can walk into the city! Thank you!

    Julia2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time staying at Queens Mount, the room is big and comfortable. The bathroom looks brand new and has a really god shower -powerful and always hot water! The host was helpful and gave us local advice. The hotel is about a 7 minute tuk tuk from town and we usually paid between 150-200 rupees for this with bartering. I would definitely recommend staying here, even though it’s on the main road the rooms are quiet and large. Excellent value for money! :)

    Lucy2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and modern accommodation. Although a bit noisy by the street and the bar / club behind the hotel. But that's not so bad, you can sleep very well. Anjula is very nice and accommodating and gives some tips. Gladly again.

    Sabrina2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Place was very clean, not to far from town. Nice place to stay. Would stay again

    Zane2019-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very nice place. We stayed for two nights and the host was helpful and really friendly. We saw monkeys in the backyard which was so cool. Also it is central and you can walk to the temple in the city center or take a tuk tuk. Would recommend and come back at any time!

    Miriam2019-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Looks like hotel room and not private accomodation. Balcony (and room too if Doors are open) are visited by monkeys, which is interested, but dangerous.

    Tomas2019-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect accomodation, for both backpackers and not. Price is really honest, the place is very clean. Only a little bit noisy because on a main street, but the rooms are facing the backside of the bulding, opposite to the street, so we had a good sleep. Staff is excellent.

  • Gayantha is a very helpful host who guided us to his house. It might be a bit difficult to locate, but locals as well as the host was extremely helpful with directions. The location is away from the city centre. The house is very neat and tidy with all essentials provided and fully furnished drawing/dining & kitchen.

    Pritish2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • This a very well equipped and spacious apartment in a tranquil location with stunning views. The hosts are a warm-hearted family who were quick to respond to any queries or problems. The apartment was sparkling clean with lots of thoughtful touches, such as a fridge full of chilled mineral water, mineral water in both bedrooms, a stock of serviettes, toilet roll, and garbage bags, and plenty of high quality kitchen equipment, crockery and cutlery. These things are rare in budget Airbnbs. It is 5-10 minutes to Kandy town in a tuk tuk, depending on traffic, with plenty of supermarkets nearby in Katugastota. The WiFi worked very well, except in the heavy rains. I would definitely come again.

    Jo2019-10-20T00:00:00Z

    2019-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The host areVery nice,and the house is Beautiful and so clean, very very good. The scenery in the mountains is very good, but you need to take a sudden car. Can cook, the kitchen living room is large. Worth staying, we stayed for 3 days

    2019-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • I would put 6 stars if I could. Very quiet area and a house that has everything. Book it now if it's available and you won't regret. The tuk-tuk ride from the property to Kandy center cost us 200 rupee. The owners are very kind people.

    Paul (Igor)2019-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Position slightly off-center but in 20 minutes you reach the center or with a tuk tuk it takes 3 minutes. Spacious house, equipped with many comforts, clean kitchen with many utensils, washing machine, large bathrooms and comfortable bedrooms. Highly recommended

  • Stop looking and book Bernard! Bernard was the highlight of our trip. Close to the city (200 rupee tuk-tuk) with incredible views! Bernard and his family were very accommodating (with the best coconut sambal we have ever tasted!). We would recommend this place to anyone!

    Rachael2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Bernard and his wife welcomed us very warmly. We instantly felt like home. The Room was very clean and tidy. Bernard gave us some great information about Sri Lanka, the people, Buddhism and so on. The family is really kind and they did their best to make us feel good. The breakfast was incredible. I wish I've stayed longer with them. Thank you very much for everything!

    Melena2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • A really perfect place to stay, everything was fine: Bernard and his family are very friendly and accommodating, there was a different breakfast every day, the city can be reached in 10 minutes on foot and thanks to the location it is very quiet at night. Bernard also kindly enabled us to transfer to our next destination. He also offers tours all over Sri Lanka!

    Fabian2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect host and guide. Also offers tours. The apartment is spacious and very well equipped, the house is beautiful. The way to Kandy is easily accessible on foot (about 20-25 minutes to the temple quickly). The hosts are excellent and go out of their way to make you feel good. Bernard likes to explain the culture, religion and history in Sri Lanka to you. He has valuable tips and can arrange very good tour guides for further trips. Always my pleasure!

    Stephanie2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Bernard and his family were wonderful. Highly recommend

    Matilda2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed at Bernard's place for 2 nights. Really impressed by the outstanding hospitality. He offered his kitchen to cook food. Also invited us for a barbecue party at his place. View from the upper balcony is quite nice. Breakfast is decent. Will recommend this place for anyone looking for a comfortable affordable airbnb.

    Shekhar2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • We want to thank Bernard and Uma from the bottom of our hearts for being such exceptional hosts. They went out of their way to look after us. They not only have a big house but a big heart as well. My daughter and I were welcomed, and made to feel as if we were part of the family. Never once did we feel like we were outsiders. Moreover, Uma and Bernard are extremely wise, and we gained more from trip than we would have imagined. The deep conversations that we had with each of them was truly life changing to say the least. This family was absolutely amazing, so much so that they even catered to our stringent dietary restrictions by making us lunch and/or dinner so that we could taste some local cuisine. The energy in the house was positive, and so were the people. Surang and luca were so so helpful, and we had the most wonderful time here. Logistically speaking, the location of this house is perfect with a supermarket, bakers and a food chain so nearby. Bernard is also a tourist guide and hence is the perfect host. Overall, if you didnt already gather, we had an amazing time. Will definately visit again, thats for sure.

    Rayan Dale2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Right after I arrived in Sri Lanka after a long flight, I drove with my rented TukTuk from Negombo to Kandy. Even if it was a fun ride, I was very exhausted when I arrived. That’s why I was looking for a quiet place to stay for my first night. Chamaris and Nilans house was even nicer as it looked like on the pictures. Everything was perfectly clean and the room was very cozy. Nilan and Chamari are both lovely and kind. I would love to visit them again!

    André2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Chamari and Nilan’s home is perfect - situated truly next to nature. They are very helpful and will give you the best tips on what to see around the area. I 100% recommend you have breakfast as well otherwise you’re missing out ^_^

    Eugen2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • It was the best stay in Sri Lanka. We stayed in seven places on the island and staying at Chamari and Nilan is beyond praise! Perfect cleanliness, stylish home, everything you need is in the room. Very nice hosts, we really enjoyed talking to them. We ordered breakfast from them. Very tasty and satisfying. Thank you so much for staying. I definitely recommend it. If we come to Kandy again, we will definitely stop at Nilan and Chamari.

    Artem2020-02-27T00:00:00Z

    Sasyesh2020-02-24T00:00:00Z

    Alex2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Place with a beautiful view and very clean home.

    Paras2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was amazing! This is exactly the kind of place we were looking for - a little bit out of town so that we are surrounded by quiet and nature, but not too far as it is just a 10 minute ride by scooter or tuktuk. The place is newly renovated and very comfortable. We stayed in 2 different rooms which were equally amazing! We originally planned a 3 night stay, but our flight for cancelled and the hosts arranged for us to stay in their other room immediately. We will not forget this amazing place and family that made us feel like at home. We miss it already! Thank you!

  • The youngster's apartment is built with a rustic feel, the balcony in our room was pretty sweet. Suraj helped with great tips to travel around Kandy and also helped us with a smart way to travel to Ella. The Tunnel road where the house is built is pretty accessible by tuk-tuk and is only a 7 mins ride away from the railway station. The room was reasonably clean and well kept. Although we were here only for a day, the overall experience was good

    Anshuman2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Suraj was very helpful and went out of his way to help us out. Location is within walking distance of some lovely restaraunts and close enough to the train station. Great for the price

    Tammy2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is the best place one can get in Kandy. Absolutely beautiful home and the warmest of hosts. Both Suraj and his home caretaker were extremely welcoming. I also took a drive with Suraj and he went above and beyond to make sure my family had a comfortable ride. To summarize, if there’s one person I would want to accompany me in SL, I’d choose Suraj any day. Can’t recommend him enough!

    Pavan2019-10-29T00:00:00Z

  • Great stay, cool apartment. Great hosts it’s nice to get to know Maya and her husband. Really recommend.

    Tom2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • YOU HAVE TO STAY HERE! If you are visiting Kandy, Maya and Gamini's place is absolutely perfect! It's just up the hill from the crazy town centre and noise, the veiws are gorgeous and there is a great restaurant and supermarket just 10 minutes walk down the road. The place itself is very clean, super comfortable with a lovely bathroom and hot shower. The kitchen is also very cute with a little fridge and cooker. The best part though is Maya and Gamini. Their Sri Lankan breakfast is delicious and plentiful and we loved spending an hour and a half talking with them over breakfast both mornings. They have so many helpful tips and also were kind enough to book us a great driver down to Nuwara Eliya when the train was fully booked! Thank you both for having us, we hope we can stay again one day!

    Laura2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay in this wonderful house. Very clean, comfortable bed and everything was in excellent standard. The best part of our stay was definitely the fantastic hosts and the amaaazing breakfast! Would love to return :)

    Brage2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Maya and Gamini are incredible hosts and their little apartment is fabulous. Their home is in a quiet, leafy neighborhood and you feel like it's a reai retreat. They are attentive and helpful and serve delicious homemade breakfasts. When we had to leave early on our last day, they got up to make us tea and send us off, and they arranged a driver for us, too. We could have stayed here for a long time. Highly recommended!!

    Brian + LeeAnne2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Maya and her husband are wonderful hosts and took very good care of everything. We really enjoyed our stay at their place! It’s a quite place a bit out of the busy center of Kandy - just what we were looking for. Can really recommend the Sri Lankan Breakfast they make.

    Sunita2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place to stay, very clean and with everything you need! Great hospitality and helpful host. It is located between mountains, 10 minutes away by car from the noisy city center.

  • This is a fantastic place to stay whilst in Kandy. The apartment is spacious, modern and comfortable and is in a much quieter area of Kandy. The view from the garden is lovely and you can walk into the main city in 20 minutes. Maya and Gamini are welcoming and friendly and so helpful with providing tips and assistance. We were unlucky in getting the train from Kandy to Ella but Maya and Gamini provided us with a genuine and lovely driver who took us all the way for a reasonable price. A highlight was the hosts welcoming you into their beautiful home for a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast which was delicious. Highly recommend - we only wish we could have stayed longer!!

    Helly2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Ireland homestay was absolutely fantastic. The location was brilliant, slightly outside the hustle and bustle of Kandy, with magnificent views of the lake from the house. Irean made us feel at home straight away and she was so helpful, arranging for us to go to Sigiriya for the day. She was a great cook and made us the best breakfast we have had during our trip in Sri Lanka so far. We wished we could have stayed a little longer and highly highly recommend booking to stay here!!!

    Lauren2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Photos are all real, view is awesome and Irean has an outstanding lovely and helpful personality... I strongly recommend:)

    Abdulrahman2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Everything is awesome .. thank you Irean

    Abdulrahman2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • The room was very clean and well kept and the river view was very relaxing! It is a bit away from the hustle and bustle and yet you are in 5 minutes by car in the city! The breakfast from Irean was great! We even got a lovingly prepared lunch bag from Irean when we were out with Peter the driver a little earlier! Irean and her driver Peter looked after us very well and at a very fair price! Peter showed us very nice locations! If you visit Kandy and stay here, you should definitely stay here at Irean!

    Michael2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location, Irene and her grounds man are so friendly and hospitable. The place is a little idle and perfect to relax in after the craziness of Kandy.

    Beryl2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • We wanted peace and greenery in Kandy and we found the ideal place. Small garden, beautiful terrace and spacious room with a magnificent view of the river. Irean is very welcoming and a very good cook. So recommend +++.

    Helene2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • An apartment on top of the world where you can touch the stars with your hands .... This is about the house of Irene .... Impeccably clean apartment, in an insanely beautiful place on the river bank. Watching the evening as the sun sets over the mountain, staining the peak with a bright red glow, this is wonderful. At night in silence you can hear all the natural sounds of nature and the slight waving of the water surface, which pleasantly reflects the moon in itself. Very beautiful flocks of fireflies flew past our balcony, it was enchanting. The house is very clean and energetic mistress of the house with a charming smile and an open soul. And also a pleasant driver Peter, who took us to the city, brought us to the house and then drove to local attractions .... The most important thing is that during the trip he is very careful and attentive, drives a car calmly and safely ...

  • Amila provided a clean and cosy flat with superior view over the city via the garden terrace. We had to leave early so he even provided us with lunch bags. Great place to stay!

  • Amilas place is amazing! The best spot for us to stay in Kandy-a calm place to rest after a busy day in the city! His mother and everybody else in the house have been super friendly and welcomed us very warmly. And, like anybody else wrote, the breakfast is more you can eat! Highly recommended!

  • Amila's place was really good. The view from the terrace was brilliant. The amenities were great and the place was stylishly accessorised. The breakfast served in the morning was delicious. Only thing I would say is that it's a bit far from the main city but with uber operating it was no problem at all.

  • Gayantha (the owner ) was very friendly person and their service was very appreciative. Breakfast was far better than expected. Place was very calm quiet and relaxing.

  • Hospitality: Gayantha & his family members are incredible. They were accommodating and very quick to respond with any questions. Gayantha is also flexible with check-in and check-out time, which was extremely helpful. The place was very clean and had all of the amenities listed. The breakfast was fantastic (western) & filling. I was lucky enough to get some milk rice (Kiri bath in Sinhalese) on the full moon Poya day. The taste reminded me my grandma she used to cook milk rice on the very first day of every month 😊 Location: The place is very clean & tidy. The views are amazing & best for relaxation. The location is 4KM from Kandy Railway Station. Taxi hailing app Pickme is the ideal choice for trishaw (tuk) rides (around LKR 150 via Sri Dhammassiddi Mawatha). For a walk from the location to the town, take Sri Dharmapala Mawatha to the “Raa Kade Junction” (15 mins) & can take a bus from there to reach the Kandy town. Overall experience: It’s a super deal for this price. You’ll enjoy their breakfast for sure. Also you’ll truly feel home!

  • Wonderful location and place to stay 🙂

    Nandika2019-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Check in was straightforward the location is a bit out of town but was not a problem for me. The hosts are very nice, breakfast was also very good. For a short stay in Kandy sufficient.

    Mihriban2019-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • This spot is ideal for respite while in Kandy. The views are astonishing and you can watch the sunrise from your private balcony. It is a little out of the city which is exactly what I wanted as very quiet, you can walk down and up easily if you are practicing for the various hikes! I’d 100% stay again. The family are all very kind and breakfast was delicious.

    Joey2019-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation was very good and the best internt in my whole stay in Sri Lanka. Would certainly go back exactly ..... Because price performance was very good.

    Judith2019-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is the most beautiful of the three homes I have come to live in Sri Lanka! ! ! Located on a beautiful mountainside, a very good family, a bathroom in the room, a large kitchen, you can cook for yourself, or a washing machine and microwave, hair dryer, very complete, the kitchen has coffee and black tea to cook by yourself Drink, breakfast is very rich, the father of the landlord at night also came to check if the window is closed for me. I have had a very pleasant 3 days here, and I have only one guest for these three days, one person enjoys this big room. I am most satisfied with the bed in the room, unlike the white sheets of the hotel and many homestays, the room also has free water, and the map back here, it is completely home feeling, it will make you very I love everything in this room. If you come to Kandy, I highly recommend it to everyone. The price is very high~

  • The room was very good and comfortable and the accommodation had all the equipment you needed. The lunch served by the host was excellent! Room very well located. The only negative is the very strong smell of mothball in the room and the bathroom !! It was everywhere and it gave me a headache!

  • We arrived exactly when the sun was about to set, so as soon as we dropped our bags to our room, we were served a cup of local tea with an amazing view on top of the house. The host was very friendly and to our surprise knew a lot about our little home country Estonia. The room was clean and peaceful. We had a very nice rest. There were towels, hair dryer and basic shower essentials as well as AC and wifi. We were offered a breakfast for some extra money ($5 for a whole breakfast which was so good that we found ourselves skipping lunch). As we had to leave early, we had to ask for it to be served around 7 but it wasn't a problem at all. To conclude, the host was very helpful, flexible and definitely made it to our highlights list of our Sri Lanka trip, especially considering the short time we got to spend there.

  • Nice rooftop view with breakfast and dinner. Anjana was a great host and drove us to Sigiriya and the airport. Would highly recommend!

  • I totally recommend this Air B‘n‘B for your visit in Kandy. The room was very clean and the view totally amazing! The hosts were helpful and gave good tips.

    Katharina2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • The room was very clean and cozy. The host helped us with everything we needed and gave us local advice and tips. The view from the tower was awesome, we loved to spend the evenings up there. We really recommend this beautiful place!!!

    Lucia2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very kind hosts! The place has a great view for sunsets. It's definitly worth staying. You will always need a Tuk Tuk to / from the location.

    Kristin2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful apartment. Fully match the photos. The price tag is extremely adequate. Behind the windows of palm trees, monkeys are running on the roofs, the forest is noisy with the cries of birds. Great menu, large portions and very tasty. The owner is cordial and helped a lot with travel tips, told how easy it is to get to certain points and about the island itself. Extremely positive impressions.

  • The host cooked us dinner even it was about 10pm when we arrived. The meals are delicious, the view from the balcony is amazing.

    Yvette2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
