Such a beautiful house, I felt so at home and comfortable, I stayed 4 nights and could have easily stayed longer! Everything about this place is perfect; the views of the hills and waterfall, the delicious meals (dinner was outstanding every night), the room (especially the garden room which was cosy and lovely treetop views from the window) and the...

Beautifull house like from a fairytale. The view, terrace, rooms, outside sitting area, all with detailes which fit perfectly, its something hard to describe, you need to see it. We did not want to leave that magical place. Relaxed atmosphere thanks to owner and a staff. Fast free WiFi. Best shower with strong and hot water. 15 minutes walking to... More

I spent two nights here in August with my husband, and it was the highlight of our trip in Sri Lanka. Everything about it was perfect: the staff, the rooms, the meals, the location... It is a slice of heaven.

Spent 3 nights here whilst travelling around Sri Lanka to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Fantastic peaceful location up the hill away from the main drag in Ella. Karen & Martin we're away so Lanka was in charge - a great host and a brilliant cook. His fish curry was the best meal we had during our entire trip. Lovely... More

This aptly named home stay was terrific. The staff were able to quickly find us a guide for the hike up to Ella Rock and were able to book us a taxi when a strike had halted the trains. We hit Ella about 10 days into our Sri Lanka adventure. Just when rice & curry was getting monotonous, the dinner... More

We traveled from Nuwara Eliya by train to Ella and hadn't booked anything in advance. Once we arrived to the small station in Ella, we called to see if there was availability for one night as we were just stopping before going to Arugam Bay. Lucky for us there was. Karen was very kind and advised us before, coming up... More

Waterfalls Homestay was our absolute favourite place during our Sri Lanka holiday...There's something magical about the place and the property. It had a laid-back, bohemian vibe, perfect for rest and relaxation. Needless to say, the views were beautiful! The location was perfect...private and quiet but just a short 15 minute walk to town, where we had lunch, a trip to... More

We spent two nights in Waterfall Homestay halfway through our 3 week trip in Sri Lanka. We chose the homestay due to its great ratings on Trip Advisor and Lonely Planet, and the reviews were all true - the homestay is fantastic. The accommodation is based on the side of a valley, overlooking tea plantations and a beautiful waterfall. We... More

We arrived at waterfalls to be given a warm welcome by Karen, Marty and their staff. A beautiful setting, peaceful, scenic and extremely relaxing. Food is absolutely out of this world. Dinners are an eating experience that myself and my g/friend will never forget. I'm salivating just thinking about Karens cooking!! It was my g/friends bday one night and they... More
