We stayed for 5 days in Kandy House. It is located on a steep hillside with fantastic views.
Bats flew past each evening, squirrels cavorted, birds dropped by, and a resident mongoose also snuck by.
The driveway to the property is a bit hair raising, but experienced tuktuk drivers can get up and down. Nimal manages the property and picks you up in Kandy and settles you in.
The house is about 2km from town and a tuk tuk costs $4(NZ) one way.
The décor and art is lovely Javenese, Balanese and Sri Lankan. the views and sunsets are serene.
There are a few things that are needed: a good deep clean and cushions and pillows replacing.

“Great location, nice house, some issues”

It took us a while to write a review about The Kandy House, as the jury was still out. The plusses are a great hill-side location, a short tuktuk ride away from the hustle and bustle and polution of Kandy. The price was good, specially during the Perahera-week, where hotelprices in Kandy skyrocket. As we stayed one week, we got a 30 % discount.
As we read some of the earlier reviews, we specifically asked Simon whether the property would be clean. Well it wasn't; it was quite dirty,. Everuthing was very dusty, the kitchen and kitchen utensils were filthy and sticky and there ws mildew in most of the curtains. Everything was solved by a cleaning team arranged by local care-taker Nimal after some emails to Switzerland, but it did cost us a day of our holiday. We got some lovely bouquets of flowers to make up for the inconvenience.
For the rest the description is adequate, it's a great place to stay, take away food and supermarket are nearby and we would have given it four stars, had it been clean on arrival.
