My boyfriend loved our stay in Sigiriya at Pete’s place. It felt so remote and away from the main part of town, but was only a super short tuk tuk or bike ride away (bikes supplied upon request). We spent half a day riding around town and it was a really beautiful way to soak up …

Definitely the highlight of the trip. Absolutely beautiful setting. Wonderful hospitality. Clean, comfortable, and quiet. It really felt like we had Sigiriya all to ourselves.

Peters place is a truly unique experience. Set next to a lake (which is lovely to swim in and walk around) the place feels at one with nature. The sounds of the animals and bugs really add to the authenticity of the place. It is very private and Raja (we did not meet Peter but he…

For those who love nature I totally recommend this place. A little bit far from the village but that what we want. A real escape in Sri Lanka nature.

Hi Alexandre, thank you very much for the lovely feedback. About the breakfast, I do understand where you are coming from. We didnt use to offer breakfast at all, and only thought of providing something 'simple' to get people going in the morning as some people commented that they felt a bit lazy to cook something themselves in the morning. We just absorbed the cost and as such it is a value add to the guests. I will have a good think about just removing it all together. Thank you for your input. Have a good holiday, Peter

This is a wonderful rustic holiday cabin with a great outlook to Sigiriya. It's a bit away from the tourist circus and wonderfully quiet. (Other than the peacocks.) The lake right by the cabin is really beautiful and we (two adults, one 9-year-old) enjoyed walking around the trac…

Hi Damien, thank you for the lovely feedback. Very much appreciated. I am glad you all had a lovely time. I was however worried that your daughter may find the place a bit boring. I need to have a think about how to make the place more fun for kids. Perhaps a swing...? I am glad you found the time to take a few dips in the village swimming pool. Its pity many miss out on the opportunity. Thank you very much for the comment about Sumith. Yes he is indeed a nice chap. I am really lucky to have him around. Have a lovely stay in Sri Lanka, and certainly drop me a line next time you are coming to Sri Lanka.

I was born in Sri Lanka but I travel quite regularly and that continues to provide me with travellerinsights which help me improve what I do as a host. It is a great feeling to being able to contribute positively (however big or small) to someone's experience of your home count…
