Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
1940's colonial era bungalow nestled in the hills between Kandy City and Royal Botanic Gardens. Set on sprawling garden, you are awoken by birdsong and lulled to sleep by the crickets' chirp. Enjoy Mangos and Bananas straight off the trees when in season! Home cooked Sri Lankan meals available on request. Whether you are an artist seeking inspiration or or just want a break from bustle of Kandy, this is the place for you!
Note, we have separate listings for the two bedrooms available to guests.

The space
Nestled between the hustle and bustle of the Kandy city center and the serene beauty of the Peradeniya Royal botanical Gardens, is my colonial era family home. Built in 1948, it is set on a sprawling garden with beautiful lawn, tropical plants, exotic spice and fruit trees. The cool cement floors and the high tiled roof make the house naturally "air-conditioned" against the tropical heat. If you like to be woken by the chirping of birds or be lulled to sleep by the calling of crickets, our home stay is the ideal place for you during your visit to Kandy.

Guest access
We are always on-site to welcome guests. The rooms have private toilet with hot water shower. Wifi Internet and 24h secure parking on premises are available free. Delicious Sri Lankan or continental breakfast can be provided on guest request.

* Please note that we cannot provide accommodation for guides and chauffeurs accompanying guests.*

Other things to note
Safe and reliable chauffeurs are available for city tours and day trips. Yoga session and Herbal massage and sauna can be arranged on request.

I joined the Research Division of the Sri Lanka Department of Agriculture after graduating from the University of Peradeniya. During my tenure I attended many international conferences and built professional and personal connections with agricultural scientists from around the globe. After retirement I worked on a partnership project with the Soil Science Society of Canada. In retirement I enjoy cooking and the music of the 50's and 60's. I have two grown kids who are into yoga and have coaxed me into trying it. I am an active member of the Sri Lanka Soil Science Society (SSSSL) and the alumni association of my alma mater Kandy Girls' High School. I look forward to welcoming guests from all around the world in the spirit of true Sri Lankan hospitality.
