This place is great. Karen hosts beautifully; full of friendly chat and useful advice. The views are amazing: breakfast out on the terrace looking across the valley was pretty special. the food was lovely, both the local curry and the western food: breakfast was plentiful and the coffee kept flowing. We (my wife and 9yo daughter and I) stayed for... More

We stayed two nights at here. The views are gorgeous, the hosts are friendly and make you feel welcome. I would advise that you stay more than one night, otherwise you'll leave wishing you had stayed and enjoyed the views and tranquility of the place. Definitely eat in, you won't be disappointed. The food was delightful. Our children loved it... More

We stayed in the verandah room just for the one night we arrived fairly late due to the fog we had to drive rather than take the train. Our driver was very hesitant going down the narrow windy road but it was definitely worth the effort but probably best done in day light. The room was very spacious and comfortable... More

My friend and I had a lovely 2 nights staying at Waterfalls; right in the middle of a 2 and a half week trip and it was exactly the relaxation we needed after the hustle of Kandy. Karen, Martin and their team were excellent hosts and we had one of the most delicious meals of the trip around their kitchen... More

I'm with RJMH67. It's been over 6 months since we stayed with Karen and the team at Waterfall Homestay and looking at other pics people have posted brings some of the best memories of a lifetime flooding back. Of course the area and aspect have a lot to do with it (Ella is incredibly beautiful generally and the homestay is... More

I'm getting emotional just thinking about Ella Waterfalls and what a wonderful stay we had with Karen & Martin and their gorgeous crew :) We stayed two nights @ the Verandah room which was perfect for us travelling as a couple and toddler. It was great to sleep without the A/C for a change and Karen & Martin's home is... More

Like everybody (almost :) we enjoyed our stay in this beautiful gest house. The view is superb, the owners are the kindest couple ever (they let their living room open late for my boyfriend, who wanted to see the french team playing in world cup Brasil 2014..), very good food too. I agree that it could be better to have... More

Our family of five have just left the little piece of heaven. The homestay overlooks the beautiful Ella Rock and waterfall and is surrounded by gorgeous jungle which teems with wildlife. Our rooms were beautiful and made up to feel like (a very special) home. Karen and Martin are wonderful hosts, the food was divine and their hospitality created an... More

We arrived at Ella and waterfall home stay following recommendations. It didn't disappoint. The temperatures both inside the rooms and out were a welcome relief from the stifling temperature of the coast. We stayed in the jungle room and the views were spectacular. The room was small but perfectly formed (felt like we were in a treehouse :)), very clean!... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Waterfall Homestay perched on top of a hill, directly in front of a waterfall, surrounded by jungle makes this one of the most stunning places in Ella to stay. Choose from three beautiful rooms, two with 180 degree views and one with french doors opening on to a large veranda. Relax on the sundeck and watch the monkeys playing in their jungle garden while Kamal, one of the best cooks in Sri lanka, prepares your meals for you. Waterfalls is a piece of paradise and only 1.5km from the town of Ella makes it definitely worth venturing of the beaten track for. ... more   less
