Really lovely apartment with an amazing view, and the family in the main home upstairs is absolutely delightful. There are a few spots around the island that I view as secondary homes, and this spot became that in Kandy!
The space is large, open, clean, and uncluttered — with LOADS of sunlight. I came from Colombo for a weekend to get some work done with my girlfriend, and it was a great creative space to allow ideas to flow.
Just a few notes on the space:
•The kitchen area doesn't currently have a stovetop, as [I was told] someone staying there left the gas on, which was very dangerous. There may be an opportunity to use it upon request, though they let me use their kitchen upstairs, which was very kind. [It also gave us another opportunity to see the cutest puppy I've ever encountered.]
•The apartment has two rooms, each with 2 twin beds. This Airbnb listing is for the full apartment with 1 bedroom, and — as it stands — there shouldn't be anyone else in the other room if this booking is completed via Airbnb.
•The kitchen area could use a few basic amenities like cutlery, utensils, and a few other basics — but they provided from upstairs. The fridge works well, and there's a kettle. They also offer breakfast or lunch/dinn(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)], but I prefer to do my own meals even while away.
•There's a balcony outside of the main house [their house, upstairs] with an incredible view. Can have a drink or bite up there. They're very welcoming.
•There's also a private grassy area outside of the front door.
Really great place to stay. With a few minor tweaks, can go from 4.5 to 5 stars!
