This property is located a bit outside of Kandy but still walking distance to the town if you're up for it. I walked to Kandy city center once or twice but tuk tuks are also cheap and readily available so I opted to take a tuk tuk most times in the interest of time. The room itself is super comfortable. There is a AC unit although I didn't find it necessary in January and just used the built in fan for some air circulation. The bathroom is lovely and clean with ample hot water for showers. There is also a cute little balcony with an amazing mountain view. Malka is very sweet and accomodating. I had breakfast at the homestay one morning which was an incredible spead of Sri Lankan and Western breakfast items (although way too much frood for me personally). She made a curried jackfruit which she had picked the previous day from their own jackfruit tree. One of my favorite curries I had in Sri Lanka! Great place and a great value. Would absolutely stay here again!

We spend four nights at Alex' and Malka's lovely house and enjoyed every second of it. The appartement they offer is well equipped and the breakfast and dinner are just amazing. Unfortunately I got sick and had to stay in bed but Malka and her staff took care of me very kindly by offering tea and homemade medicine. The view from the terrace is stunning. And Alex offers interesting tours to tea plantations and temples around Kandy. In addition, he sells the best black tea we had in whole Sri Lanka at his small tea shop. We are very grateful for the great hospitality and really recommend this place!
