“This was our first stop in Sri Lanka. Manjula, Upali's son, met us at Colombo airport and drove carefully to the place. The house is very big, the room is in the guests area with a kitchen and a sitting area that you can use. You will be hosted by a very educated, wealthy and kind family. Upali was always available and communicative, even when we were leaving for pidarangala rock at 5am he was up checking if everything was ok. The breakfast cooked by Upali's wife was amazing, huge and very tasty (not spicy). Samabe, the family's friend, kindly showed us around and took us to Kandy. I can highly recommend this place if you are planning to visit sigiriya, pidarangala, dambulla temple and if you are looking for a genuine Sri Lankan hospitality experience.”
This is the only Homestay unit you can easily find at Maho region which offers you the real and Genuine authenticity by opening breathtaking Gateways for being with local hosts. Situated in the close proximity to key archaeological site of Yapahuwa Rock Fortress and many other Buddhist Shrines around while making you the chances of glimpsing at This pretty countryside consisting with ample of Local lakes where migrant and many other endemic birds living .
“Very memorable 2,5-days stay in the Sri Lankan countryside. The village and surroundings are great: peaceful, green and beautiful. By the nearby lakes you can see birds we have seen earlier in National Parks (and here you have it for free). The host and his family very friendly, communication with the host before the arrival and during the stay was professional and smooth. The location of their place is very conveninent: we went to Maho by train from Anuradhapura and it was only 1,5hrs journey + tuktuk from the station. We spent long time planning our itinerary in Sri Lanka and we are very happy we chose this homestay experience instead of yet another place recommended by guidebooks or blogs.”
Wonderful cabana with terrace and view into the jungle. Here, you will find a familiar atmosphere in our 10 ha wide jugle garden. In the restaurant close to the cabana, you can taste traditional Sri Lankan food. !
“What a great house !! Really a discovery! I have been here for a month to completely relax, and believe me that is possible here too. In addition to the view, the large clean bed the lovely large veranda, Lalith and Sanjee and their two employees are extremely hospitable. Sanjee managed to put something new on the table with every breakfast and dinner. Besides traditional food, I also ate delicious pasta, soup and salad. Lalith is also a travel guide and has a private van. He knows how to find the most beautiful places, and also arranged for other guests to stay in other places. So if you do not want to plan your trip through Sri Lanka yourself, send a message to him and he will arrange it. Lalith also offers a pick-up service from the airport, because keep in mind that you are still 3.5 hours in the car. The traffic in Sri Lanka is not that fast. The location of the cottage was ideal for me. In the middle of the culture triangle, and close to a huge elephant safari park. Speaking of elephants: From the restaurant you look out on a number of mountains where you can see wild elephants walking. (take your binoculars with you). You can hear it, I am very enthusiastic about the stay, partly because the photos on airbnb do not show the full picture, so it is better than I expected.”
