I traveled with my family. And i wanted an getaway from the rush and we were in for a treat. The place is very spacious, well maintained and super comforting. I liked the huge family room we got, large living area and furniture and the garden that's well maintained. The food and

Beautiful place, located in the middle of hils close to Colombo. What a dissapointment when we found it closed, despite our earlier reservation (paid online) and nobody was around.
Eventually local person who did not speak English informed my driver that the place was closed and

Dear Madam, Thank you so much for booking our property. We are absolutely gutted that we couldnt host you and your family to stay with us at The Bungalow. We were on holiday in the UK to for my grand daughter's first birthday, and realised that you had made an automatic booking on Agoda the night before you arrived. We thought all our booking channels were closed as we had informed everyone that we will not be operating during this time until 20 September. Due to time differences we couldnt manage to contact you or inform you of the situation in advance either. I hope you received your funds back from Agoda, whom we immediately informed to issue a refund once we found out. It is such a shame that we missed each other, it would have been lovely to have youll here and im sure the kids would have enjoyed it too. IF you would ever like to come back, please send us an email and hopefully we can meet then, as I believe you are located in Sri Lanka. Best regards, Iresha.

Natasha and Helmut were wonderful hosts!

It was our first time to Sri Lanka, and although only a very short stay (extended layover actually), we chose to escape the hustle and bustle of Colombo and venture to the mountains.
The property itself is gorgeous - sweeping views of the

We enjoyed this estate bungalow very much. The drive up to the bungalow needs a high vehicle ideally a 4-4 though we managed the drive in a saloon car.
Natascha is a lovely host & went out of her way to make our stay comfortable & even perhaps overfed us during meal time & tea.

Hi there, I trust this e-mail finds you well. I am just wondering if you have wifi or internet in your rooms and also, do you have a television? Thanks so much in advance. Warm Regards Elizma
"Family rooms are huge"
"No A/C in the pool view rooms but it wasnt needed as it cooled down nicely at night. Bring earplugs if you're not used to jungle noises!"
"the 2 large family rooms in the main bungalow are air conditioned & would be much more comfortable"
"if you must, try the two suites inside the main house"
"If you are looking for "5 star luxury" sanitised accommodation this is not for you. If you need a cooler room stay in the main house, I like the pool rooms but they are warmer and you will share them with ants."
