About Michael Davis
My name is Michael Davis I am English by birth but have lived in Denmark for the last 20 years and then Sri Lanka part time for 5 years until 2016 when I moved here full time.
Michael Davis purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Michael Davis chose Medadumbara
Spice cottage was added to Welikande Estate as Welikande means Sand Mountain in Sinhalese i.e. we have no natural water whereas Spice cottage has a little well. This has allowed me to full fill a dream of growing coffee and spices hence the name. The views over Lake Victoria and the Knuckles Mountains are fantastic. Also we were missing a smaller family house that was self contained we modernised the existing house trying to keep it within our goals of sustainability there is solar heated water passive ventilation and we have re established the terrace system of growing spices and coffee.
What makes this Cottage unique
Spice cottage feels as if you are living in rural Sri Lanka with all the benefits of western culture hot water wifi and if required someone to cook your breakfast.

Best stay in Sri Lanka!
This was our best stay during our two week trip to Sri lanka!
The family who runs the service where so nice and very helpful, and the food we had (breakfast and dinner) was amazing.
Wake up in a nice bed and go outside to a breathtaking view and birds singing, fresh mangos! We will go back for sure next time we visit Sri Lanka!
Thank you very much we really try hard to make a home from home!
