          people, surroundings, cottage
          we had a great time at Green View. We stayed for 2 nights and Sakula went over his head to please us. He took us around in his car to eat and get to know the place. His parents were very sweet and breakfast was amazing. However it would be nice if they had some options for dinner or lunch, because you have to drive to get to places and sometimws we didnt feel like going out. Also, the place is kind of in the middle of nowhere and if your not into places like Pinawala there's not mucho to do around there...

          Friendly family, great home-cooked food, comfortable and cozy place.
          We stayed 3D2N at the brand new Wooden Cottage at the beginning of our Sri Lanka vacation and it was a perfect start! Sakula (the owner) has been a great tour guide for our trip - he took us to all the local restaurants where we tried the tasty Sri Lankan Food, then drove us to Kandy to explore the City and took us to visit the Elephant Orphanage nearby. We also tried the newly opened Green View Juice Bar, where we enjoyed the fruits garden tour by the dad (located behind the juice bar). He even arrange the transport service to Sigiriya for us at a very fair price. Not forgetting the amazing home-cooked milk rice and spring hopper breakfast by the lovely mom! Overall, it was a very relaxing and memorable stay, and we definitely will recommend this lovely cottage with beautiful surrounding to our friends !!

          Sri Lanka Sakula Style”
          Sri Lankan Breakfast, comfort, garden
          To be honest I was a little concerned that it was a bit far out from Kandy town centre, but as soon as we got to Green View Home Stay and with every night that we stayed (3 nights in total), it became one of our favourite places that we stayed during our 3 week holiday to Sri Lanka. Sakula and his family were so lovely and welcoming and our room was clean, spacious and comfortable with a nice hot shower and a comfy bed with A/C and fans and free Wifi. We also appreciated the fridge that was stocked with drinks at pretty much the same prices that you would pay if you were to go and purchased them from the shops yourself. Green View Home Stay was not too far from the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage which was handy because that was one place that I really wanted to visit. But no matter where you want to go or what you want to see, Sakula is only too happy to help and suggest other interesting things to do and see. He is really promoting seeing the “real” Sri Lanka, getting off the beaten track and away from all the normal tourist attractions that are advertised. Just walking in the garden of the Green View Home Stay is a great adventure in itself, so many different fruits, herbs and spices and with plans to open more accommodation on the property and a juice bar, things will only get better. A fantastic stay and highly recommended to all.

          We truly felt as though we were staying at a friend's home. Sakula is very warm and welcoming. He knows a lot about the area, so he can help us with almost anything. We booked Sakula's Pogeot 406 for one day, and the price is very reasonable. If you want to meet hosts who are truly interested in your welfare and provide a friend-like environment, then you should stay here.

          This home stay is absolutely wonderful! It is perfectly clean and comfortable and when you book this place its only you will have whole place as they accept only one booking per a time so you have your total privacy and relaxation as your own home.The Sri Lankan food is a beyond amazing and the hospitality of the owners is unmatched by anything I have seen thus far. The hosts are incredibly kind and helpful, and will make your stay in Kandy better than it could have been anywhere else! I booked for one night, but I really wanted to stay more with this wonderful family. Its for sure home away from home. I certainly recommend it to anyone traveling Pinnawela and Kandy,Sakula who handles everything can speak perfect English ,drive me around and showed Pinnawela,Kandy and some amazing hidden attractions as well as the village around which gives you real Sri Lanka touch, I recommend you to contact them prior to your arrival as they can arrange everything for you for a reasonable price.I sincerely hope that I will be back soon to this wonderful home and highly recommended to any one

          The family, the hospitality, the food, the surroundings, the distance to some major attractions, ...
          Sakula and his parents, Padmin and Sunil are wonderful people. They were so hospital that we didn't want to leave. Padmin is a very good cook and introduced us into the Sri Lankan kitchen. Sunil knows everything about plants and animals. They have a wonderful garden full of local fruits. Sakula was our guide, driver and a lot more than that for 3 days but now he has become a true friend. He told and thought us so many things about Sri Lanka you will never experience any other way than staying here. Don't expect a big fancy busy concrete resort with latest design flat screen tv and swimming pool but expect a warm welcome from a friendly and hospital family. Thanks again guys for letting us be part of your family for 3 days, we will definitely stay here again and recommend all open minded people to do the same! At first we were hesitating to book this place because it is not in the center of Kandy but because Sakula took such good care of us it turned out to be a great advantage not staying in the city. Make sure to contact him before so you get off at the right train station or let him arrange an honest and safe driver for you to be picked up from the airport or your previous hotel. Sakula showed us Esala Perahera in Kandy, the Pinnawala elephant orphanage, a local Buddhist temple, the Matale Hindu temple, the Dambulla cave temple, the Sigiriya mountain fortress, a local waterfall, Sardiel the Robin Hood of Sri Lanka, ... Just in 3 days and we didn't have to arrange anything, Sakula took care of it all. He is full of great ideas and by the support of honest and open minded visitors he will be able to succeed in his vision. Good luck and enjoy!

          We initially booked this place for 2 days but we stayed extra dates also as we felt this is home away from home. This is best place to start and plan your holiday in Sri Lanka as they help you,care and advice you in all ways. We had tours and excursions with them at a reasonable price and they even provide you air port pick for 45 USD which I fond very cheap .If you come by public transport take a bus as its so close to Colombo Kandy main road We had elephant rides and also visited Kandy,Dambulla and Sigiriya also for a reasonable price in a good car.We are very happy with the location and people who run the place. My family wished to stay there even more , I hope I will be able to come bake again . Sakula is a gentleman , It is our first time in Sri Lanka and he know that I'm facing some difficulties managing the rest of my trip in off season , he didn't let that pass without helping me out . Many thanks Sakula :)

Hosts were very nice and they offered me nice tea, tasty typical Sri Lankan food and even cooking lessons at their home kitchen. They have nice large garden with many flowers, fruits and birds. I was lucky enough to taste many fresh fruits such as king coconut,mango,papya and many more fruits from their garden. Ideal place to relax and spend few days. They arranged me airport pick up and local tours for reasonable cost and always guided me with correct information about Sri Lanka and was very helpful in many ways.
