Mr. Prasanna, the owner of the property picked us up in the airport on July 21, 2019 10pm and arrived in Kandy by 1am the following day. We are Filipino tourist based in Dubai. We got invited by our Sri lankan friend to see the sights and culture of Kandy and Nuwara Eliya. The place was clean and nice. The Sri lankan breakfast was a treat, something different, original and home cooked but we really loved it. The family treated us like their own family. We felt safe and secure on our whole trip. We got a good deal for the payment as well. They took care of our tour in Kandy, Nuwara Eliya and drop us off in Negombo as well. I will surely recommend this place to my friends because its within budget, reasonable and family oriented. Surely you will fill genuinely at home. We checked out on July 24, 2019.

We had a lovely warm welcome when we arrived and a cup of tea prepared for us, which was great after a bit of a journey. The family live upstairs and leave the ground floor for guests and they appear genuinely pleased to have visitors. I noted that that they like to keep the place clean and would remove there shoes whenever they came in (which made us feel guilty for not doing so when I first arrived!), although they didn't say anything to us. Room was lovely, spacious and comfortable. We got a complimentary upgrade to a room with aircon, although didn't really need it as it was a good temperature in the room anyway. No television in the room, but this wasn't a problem for me, there's one in the dining area if you need it. Great home cooked food, a real family affair as everyone seemed to get involved in bringing dishes down and clearing up. They obviously take a lot of pride in what they do. They don't have an alcohol licence so can't sell any, but I felt that they wouldn't mind you bringing your own (if you can find a shop that sells any - there's none nearby). Breakfast equally as good, but couldn't manage it all.I'm not sure how it would work if there were a few rooms booked out, there was only one dining table that I would see so this may mean sharing with other guests. Owners main occupation is as a driver/tour guide. If we didn't already have one I'd have been more than happy to use him. Although this is classed as a homestay, it didn't feel as though we were intruding on them and we had space to ourselves.

We recently arrived at Sunrise homestay on our second trip to Kandy and in our third month of travel in Sri Lanka. This place is top notch and top drawer. The family owners are absolutely wonderful. The meals are authentic and delicious. The facilities and rooms are beyond clean, very modern, well thought out and perhaps the most secure we have had in three months traveling Sri Lanka. The location just enough outside the busy town area to provide a very quiet and restful stay. We are not on any schedule so its both a great place to catch up on recharging and for going out. Our stay will be happily extended while we sort out India visas which, the owner informed us, can be done from Kandy and promise to be less hassle than Colombo . I discovered today that I can walk down the hill from the neighborhood into town or take a tuk tuk and its a toss up depending on leisure or want to get a fast start . The entire family participates and they genuinely want to help with any needs, food ( we are wheel chair traveling and we have a wheel chair accessable room) We had some diatary needs and they are happy to provide and we feel pretty blessed by all the area Gods to have found this place. It is a gem and more importantly the entire family, husband, wife, son and daughter each add a very special touch adding up to a great place to stah Book it... its perfect.

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. The family are so friendly and helpful they made us feel at home. Prasanna organised us a tour at very short notice and it was great. He also gives good advice and is clearly not just trying to get more money out of you, he just wants to to enjoy your time in Sri Lanka! The son was really welcoming and friendly too when the parents were busy, his English is great! Kandy Lake can be reached by walking or extremely cheaply on a bus which would only take a few minutes.
