Nihal's house is simply stunning. The views overlooking the lake were breathtaking while the care and food provided by Senaka were perfect for our needs. Would highly recommend.

Nihal place was very nice, welcoming, clean. It was perfect location for us. It is at 10 minutes far max from Kandy by tuk-tuk. This was fine for us, as we did not find Kandy so good to stay. We really enjoyed staying there and discover that part of Sri Lanka. So thank you Nihal for this. We do recommend this place!!

Nihal's place is a gem! You do not expect to find such bliss in a touristy city like Kandy. The house is tastefully done, the river is right across so you can sit in the living room and have coffee while listening to the sound of the stream and the chirp of the birds. The neighborhood is quiet and well connected to the city- you can reach the temple of the tooth in 10 minutes. Nihal is a wonderful host, though we didn't get a chance to meet him, he coordinated the commute and offered valuable recommendations around places to visit and things to do. It saved us a lot of time. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone, you wouldn't find another place that's so close to nature and culture. Thanks Nihal, we wish to visit again!

We stayed he for 4 nights and we really loved the place. It was spacious and well furnished. It was lovely to relax in the house after busy Kandy. The location is great right next to the river. Seneka the caretaker was lovely who always greeted us with a smile and ever so helpful We really enjoyed our stay here and can recommend it to anyone.

We spent a month in Sri Lanka, staying in 10 different places, and this accommodation was our favourite by far. Good value, plenty of space, beautiful view, clean, homely, and a warm welcome from the caretaker living downstairs. Beds weren't the most comfortable but otherwise perfect. We'd love to return one day.

Thanks James for your review and your comments regarding the beds are appreciated. The beds have orthopedic mattresses maybe we should think of changing them to more comfortable ones. Hope to see you again next time you visit Kandy

The house was great! The caretaker was so very helpful. He helped us with transportation each day. Clean rooms, great views, good location! Would definitely suggest this place to friends and family. Mr. Nihal was the nicest host I have ever dealt with on Air BnB.

The apartment was really great, we enjoyed a lot. We had everything we needed, we liked our holidays in Kandy mostly because of that wonderful apartment. For this price it's the best variant. Nihal is a very hospitable.
