About This Listing

See the river flow by from the balcony of this wonderful family home near Kandy.

The Space

The home itself is the upper part of the house where the hosts’ family lives. Two spacious rooms are nicely done to host tourists comfortably and share a balcony from which you can see the river and some endemic birds , as well as thousands of bats sleeping in the trees during the day.

Interaction with Guests

The host, Ms. Kumudini, welcomed us with a glass of tasty, fresh wood-apple juice. She speaks a little English, invites guests to help cooking Sri Lankan dishes. Her husband Sunil also has some tourism experience and can help arrange tours for you and can even do some transportation himself Together, they open up their home to host guests and make some extra income and support their daughter who studies in the UK.

The Neighborhood

Overlooking the murky water of the Mahaweli Ganga River, Sandya’s is situated near the road that runs parallel to the river and connects Katugastota Town with Kandy. Make sure to visit the narrow old bridge nearby and see the crazy local who started jumping off the bridge for fun, but makes a living doing so, time and time again.
