My boyfriend & I stayed here for four nights and I can truly say I think its the most relaxed I've ever been! Karen was the perfect hostess & on her Sunday night off the rest of the team stepped in perfectly - even managing to produce a curry buffet in a power cut! I would recommend a massage and... More

We stayed for six nights as a mid trip break during our 6 week trip in Sri Lanka. The accomodation is clean and comfortable and I joked with Martin (the proprietor) that we got the trifecta here.. Top sheets, towels and toilet paper. The house pets (dogs and cats) are good company. Traditional Sri Lankan food for breakfast and dinner..... More

We highly recommend Waterfalls Homestay. We stayed 2 nights party of 8 friends from Iceland. The location is great, overlooking the waterfalls, surrounding by beautiful nature. Very relaxed atmosphere, unique hospitality and food. Sitting outside in the morning enjoying excellent breakfast with breathtaking view is something you will never forget :)

We stayed here for four nights and left feeling completely relaxed. Firstly, the location of this beautiful home, overlooking the waterfalls and away from the noise of Ella main Street, is perfect. Just a fifteen min walk into town, half an hour to the waterfall, hour and a half from the top of Ella rock. Secondly, what really makes this... More

Waterfalls Homestay is just beautiful, with stunning views of the countryside and Ramara waterfall from the big communal balcony, where you could happily spend all day drifting in the hammock reading surrounded by the eclectic and artful decor. It's a bit of a walk from Ella centre but a couple of hundred Rupees in a tuk-tuk makes that easy. Karen... More

Don't stay for just one night, as it is the highlight of Sri Lanka! After a long but scenic train ride I was greeted with great hospitality and a cold beer! A real Aussie welcome! The atmosphere is exceptional, the food is excellent, the views to die for and being lulled to sleep by the noise of the waterfall -... More

We were lucky enough to stay here for one night as someone canceled last minute (and we took their place). We stayed in the jungle room and it was beautiful - overlooking the forest and waterfall. When we arrived we were very warmly welcomed by Martin and Karen. Their home is truly beautiful! Dinner at the home stay would have... More

My husband and I spent two nights at Waterfalls and had a truly lovely time. As the name suggests, the property overlooks a beautiful waterfall which creates such a peaceful setting. A bit if a walk from the centre of Ella, but it's a couple hundred rupees tuk tuk ride up. There are only three rooms so it's an intimate... More

Staying at Waterfalls with Martin and Karen as hosts is like being at your friend's place with his or hers great mum who always want the best for you. Add a couple of other friends stopping by for a night or two adding interesting discussions and on top of that a breathtaking view and you have Waterfalls. Even if we... More

Beautiful setting and great friendly and accommodating hosts, short walk or tuk-tuk ride to town. Delicious food with varied offerings. Great value for money. Comfortable rooms and very sweet kitties. Make sure you do the walk to Ella Rock via the falls.....
