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.....

Firstly thank you so very, very much to Karen and Martin, what amazing hosts. Even in the rain it was wonderful. They have a wonderful sense of people and the area and all the little out of the way places to explore. Karen directed us to the local weaving mill a truly fantastic and interesting place that normally goes unnoticed.... More

Our family of five loved staying at Waterfalls Homestay. My kids loved the animals - the family cats and dogs, plus monkeys in the garden! It was a great base for hiking and exploring the area around Ella, with a lovely, quiet, homey atmosphere and stunning views. We had two nights here and could easily have stayed longer. The food...

Thanks to Karen and Martin, and all the staff for the 3 nights we spend to their place. We were 2 families, and we booked the whole house for us. Since the room are quite far one from the other, we finally used only 2, because it was not safe for the kids to be that far from the parents.... More

the siting of this place is amazing, with lovely views and good food . However , this was the WORST experience of a host in our entire venture visit to Sri Lanka.. lacking in any manners or skills with visitors.. to the extent of being deliberately rude, i think because we chose to eat in the town and not in...

the Good: Lanka cooks a really really good dinner! Liked the Mango curry, among the other currys. And the view is amazing. The rest was an average experience to us. Not taking the lack of running water due to a power failure during our stay into account. Further your experience will depend on the other guests, with whom you will... More
