Unusual house with real charm. Very welcoming manager. Amazing views and local wildlife. A great place to stay.

“Breathtaking views but no AC. Very hot inside the house.”
Reviewed 11 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Pros:
• Views
• Accessibility to a tuk tuk driver (he was great - we could call him at any time)
• Wildlife in our view.
• Plunge pool when it was clean. This after about 3 hours was dirty.
• Radio with CD's.
• Internet was good quality.
• Rope swing under a tree by the pool for kids.

Cons:
• No AC and it was HOT! We did not know this and assumed it had AC. Granted the month we stayed was the hottest month in years, or so we were told. It was very hot in the house. Two small floor fans were provided but 1 shut off after 30 minutes. Miserable.
• Plunge pool was nice but it got dirty and nothing was provided to clean it. No filter or pool nets etc.
• Pots, pans etc were below average quality.
• Bar b que was provided but it was out of gas, so we couldn't use it. And it was our last day. This should be checked before guests arrive.
• Very hard beds.
• Not walking distance to town or even a grocery store. The closest store was closed.
• Very loud at night due to critters on the roof. Constant tap-tap on the roof and dogs barking. Not good for light sleepers.
• Shower curtain had mold all over it.
• Pillows on the living room couch are torn and in disarray. Just throw them out. Nasty.
• A very very tiny rubbish bin was provided.

This is an ok property if you want an eco-style villa with no TV or AC. Tons of books and reading materials. Just not our style.

“Worth braving the drive for the view”

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.
