What can we say? We thought a long time if we should even share this gem - but this place deserves to be recommended. 5 star location in the jungle 5 minutes from Ella town with a spectacular view towards a waterfall. Extremely beautiful guest rooms. Wonderful decoration - this place is a piece of art! Great food. And the... More

We stayed for 3 days as a family and had a fantastic time. The views were superlative, the rooms comfortable and the staff were wonderfully kind and gracious . The food was really fresh and wholesome and we loved watching the monkeys whilst eating breakfast on the terrace. My children enjoyed the pets here (after dire warnings not to touch... More

Its been several months since my stay (January 2014) but I have been busy with work and life... However during that time I've often thought about Karen and Martin and how respectful and accommodating they were. Its a glorious place to stay and I would highly recommend it. Its not easy to put into words how beautiful the setting is;... More

We really, really loved this place ! Karen is a wonderful host. The rooms are very nicely decorated, comfortable, spacious and very clean. The house itself is beautiful and the setting /location is just stunning. The terrace looking out over the hills is fantastic. Breakfast was without doubt the best we had during our trip and the dinners we enjoyed... More

We (2 adults + 7 year old daughter) stay 3 nights in August at this lovely place. There are only three rooms and it is very quite. To go to this place you have to go the road (if you want to call it that way) up to the end. But then you feel like if you stay at friends.... More

Had the lovely Jungle room overlooking the waterfalls - fantastic food both nights & breakfast. Highly recommend a tuk tuk ride away from Ella centre to this fantastic spot... More

We only stayed here one night but wanted to stay longer, this is the most perfect place to stay. There is an exciting trip in a tuk tuk to reach the homestay, a great delight for my daughter. She also fell in love with Skippy and Matilda the 2 dogs there. The rooms we had were spacious and felt like... More

We loved our time at Waterfalls. Karen has created a fantastic homestay in Ella. The walks in this area are one of my highlights from our trip to Sri Lanka...and waterfalls is a perfect base. If there is availability for your dates, book now! You won't regret it!

Stayed one night - family of four in 2 rooms. Setting is stunning (albeit a bit hair raising to get to along narrow, steep road). We arrived during a power cut so no power or water (obviously not the staff's fault). It was the only place on our tour we were not offered a 'welcome drink' and when the power... More
