Emil & Arlene are excellent hosts- no more of your wonderful food please Arlene!. The house is pretty and still has part of the old working plantation as part of its grounds. We had a most interesting walk looking at spices and fruits growing in their natural environments, and looked around where the rubber used to be made in earlier times. The bedroom is very large and comfortable. A stop for one or two nights is perfect to recharge when you are travelling around Sri Lanka. My only recommendation to Emil & Arlene is the house is at the top of steep and winding road and although this means it is cool and gives great views from the veranda, I suspect that some taxi drivers either wouldn't find it or even give up, so Emil I would say it would help you and your clients if you could arrange to pick them up from Kandy.
Best wishes Karen & Jem
