Best Home Stay in Sri Lanka! AMAZING!”
We cannot rate Mountain View Holiday Home highly enough! It was the best home stay that we used not only in Sri Lanka but in any country that we have travelled! I think what really makes this place special is that Donald and Sunanda don’t just see you as a customer but rather just a friend staying with them. They were so friendly and we spent hours talking to Donald who also recommended places to visit and organised very affordable drivers for us. Not only was the hospitality 5 STAR but the food was amazing (both breakfast and dinner), the WIFI was super-fast and for the first time we had hot water in Sri Lanka! The rooms were excellent and very clean. I would also highly recommend dinner, not only for the food but for the interaction with the other guests. Definitely a must stay when you visit Kandy! Thanks so much for your Hospitality! PS ask Sunanda for a tour of her beautiful garden!

Perfect accomodation for exploring Kandy”
Mountain View was very comfortable accomodation with amazing views of Kandy from our balcony. A beautiful family home where your hosts can't do enough for you to make your trip a success. Fabulous home cooking and lots of tips and advice which helped us to make the most of our short stay.

Beautiful place to stay and value for money”
This place was exceptional. Loved every bit of our stay here. It's value for money, the room was comfortable n cosy, scenic view for breakfast and awesome host.. they took care of us really well. The hostess took care of our son while we had our breakfast.. read in some reviews that the laundry was free but ours was charged n it wasn't too bad.. I will definitely recommend this place :)

Up in the hills above Kandy”
Terrific homestay in the hills high above Kandy. In a secluded neighborhood which adds to its charm, but make sure to call for directions as our driver had difficulty finding it. Short tuk-tuk ride to the main areas of Kandy. The hosts make you feel entirely at home and we enjoyed our stay. WiFi worked well in room and all areas.

Really feel like staying with locals”
We were very happy to book this place. We do really liel the idea to get to know a little more about places we visit. A do like the neigboirhood were the house is located, even our driver got lost as it is not so simple to get there. Also, it seems that the house got a hot water issue, so we have been asked to take quick showers. Breakfast was very pleasant at the house garden! Totally recommended. Owner and people in the house were very noce with us, tho you have the feeling of stsying at your family house and be sorry to make any noise.

Home away from home...”
Cannot recommend this beautiful home enough!! Don and Sunanda are the most welcoming, warm and helpful hosts one could ask for! They have a genuine love of hospitality and are always eager to help out with suggestions and information on travelling not only around Kandy but elsewhere also! Breakfast in the garden amoungst the hills was peacefull, relaxing and picturesque. The room itself was spacious, well appointed and maticulously clean as was the bathroom! Its a quick 15min tuk tuk toKandy city centre and they are on call always to help any tuk tuk driver with directions so you are never lost!! I would definately book again if i return!

Great staying at Mountain View”
We spend two nights at MVHH in August during the Perahera budhist festival. MVHH is a little far away from Kandy's city center, but it is great as it is more quiet and relaxing. Their garden is a good place to chill down with a beer. Donald is the owner and he has every contact you need to enjoy your trip to Kandy. He can arrange tuk tuks, tickets to Perahera and give advice for your travel around Sri Lanka. The house is nice and the rooms are clean and bath has hot water. What else you need? Oh, maybe a good breakfast in the morning? They will provide! Tuk tuks from Kandy's rail station to MVHH should be like 400 Rs.

Brilliant stay - way too short”
We had an amazing stay, here, just way too short! The guest house is gorgeous and the owners are incredibly lovely. Also, the guest house is a bit remote, far from Kandy's sometimes a bit overwhelming noise and pollution. So serene!

Room was clean, facility was good, breakfast was delicious with beautiful garden setting. Most importantly they were very attentive and accommodated our needs perfectly. The location was 20 min from the town center by three wheeler ride, but the view from the balcony was beautiful. We highly recommend this place to any travelers.

Fantastic!.....”
Donald and Sanandra couldn't do enough to make sure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. From helping with booking trips, tuk tuk's and taxis for our onward journey they were more than happy to help with all of these .Donald has a team of local divers who he use's regularly ensuring you get a great price no need for you to haggle and knowing you haven't been ripped off. I would not hesitate in recommending this accommodation to any-one travelling to Kandy. Breakfast normally served outside with a lovely view over Kandy and inside when we needed a ridiculously early start on the day we left. I can honestly say nothing was too much trouble including providing a table for two when we decided to return after a long day sight seeing with take-away food.

A Little Oasis in Busy Kandy.”
Donald and his wife went out of their way to assist us when we were in Kandy. They organised a tut tut driver to meet us at the train station and gave really good advice on what to see. They organised their lovely friend Roshan to give us the full Kandy tour; elephant orphanage, botanical gardens, dancers and the tooth temple. Their accommodation is fabulous; one of the most comfortable beds we have slept in 21 days into our journey. Their home is situated in the mountains/hills surrounding Kandy, but easy to each by tut tut; within 20 minutes. We also appreciate Donald's helpful advice on our future holidaying plans in Sri Lanka. We wish we had contacted him before we departed on our Sri Lankan adventure. We highly recommend Mountain View Holiday home and thank Donald and his wife for their hospitaility.
