great hospitality,very clean and big room,quite”
Never find a better place since we were travelling. It is located in the middle of a green and peaceful area between Rambukkana/Pinnawala (elefant sightseeing) and Kandy. God for staying away from the crowded tourist area but easly reach by bus/tuk trestaurantesf u want. Try to talk with Sakula fluent in English very helpful and inocredibly kind such as his parents. They helped us as their children. Suggestions to reach Green view: by bus from colombo or kandy get down at Uthuwankanda Junction which is very close to the guest house, on the rigt to kandy direction. By train get down in Rambukkana train stationand come to karadupana Junction which is on Colombo kandy main road and take colombo kandy bus or kegalla mawanella bus and get down at Uthuwankanda junction. Always ask to ownersfor any kind of informaition, for restaurant or when planning local excursions such as going to pinneweala ,visiting temples never get better advice and best prices. for example only 1200 rps.by tuk tuk to kandy (24 km.) We were travelling as a family.
Sri Lanka Sakula Style”
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.
Green view home stay is for sure more than just accommodation as I never felt alone though I travelled alone. This is the best place I stayed during my holiday in Sri Lanka. I received a very warm welcome and hospitality during my stay there .Room is very nice, large, clean and with good internet connection. 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. This place is close to elephant orphanage. I have visited some nice waterfall, old temples, tea factory and Kandy too. I had a wonderful time there and wish to visit this place again. I highly recommended this place to anyone.
Home from home”
This really is a home from home; we really enjoyed our time here. When we arrived we received a warm welcome and nothing has been too much for our hosts. Green view home stay is very keen to give you the Sri Lankan experience; we've had the best time and the best food. Starting the day with hoppers has been a real treat. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience and for going out of your way to make our time here the best it could be. Welcoming hosts, fabulous food, tasty tea, great value for money and a great all round Sri Lankan experience - what more do you want?!
Refreshingly Sri Lanka”
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 !!
Value for your money”
I went to green view with my wife.This is a very nice property with nice garden and ideal place to relax and feel the nature.Large and very clean rooms and never expect this level of rooms and service for this price(Fee WiFi,hot water and own private dinning room).They gave us a warm welcome,advice and also help us plan local visits.They also offer very nice Sri Lankan food.We actually felt this place as a home away from our home.Very easy access to every thing such public transport,restaurants etc. They hold "Superior Grade" rating from the tourist board for rooms and for the property.They really maintain standards. I really recommend this place to any one and real value for money you pay and would love to visit this place again.
Very Nice Hotel”
This very nice place. Very clean rooms, wifi ,hot water with private dining room. Located very close to the main road ( 2 mins walk) and 1 km away from city centre Mawanella where you find supermarket and other shops. Very short drive to Pinneweala elephant orphanage and 30 minutes drive to Kandy. Very nice view of rice fields directly from the property and large garden to relax. Excellent service and tasty homemade Sri Lankan food and they give you cooking lessons too. We visited some nice ancient rock temples called Devanagala and Danakirigala and which are so amazing. You can do a village walk and people are very friendly in the local area. Ideal place for relaxation and Real Value for money. I would go back there again and recommend for any one especially for a couple or small family.
“Exceptional Place, Excellent Stay, Fantastic food”
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
Soul of nature ”
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 :)
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...
Truly a comfortable homestay”
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.
Beautiful place, lovely people and very tasty food”
Beautiful house with nice large garden. The view, terrace, rooms, outside sitting area, all with details which fit perfectly, it's something hard to describe, you need to see it. We did not want to leave that magical place. Relaxed atmosphere thanks to Sakula and his lovely parents. Very tasty Sri Lankan food.Fast free WiFi. Clean bathroom and hot water too. Comfortable large car for tours for a reasonable price . Highly recommended and contact Sakula in advance as he will help you always for anything.
Fantastic Home Stay”
I stayed with my wife and 7months old kid. The experience was fantastic like living with your own family. Host family played with my kid and always helpful. Room was nice. The owner helped me hiring a good car and also taking care of us throughout my vacation in Sri lanka. Highly recommended what wants a Sri Lankan's home experience. Thanks to hostfamily
Don't look any further, this is the place!”
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!
I really liked the friendly approach. It is set in 3 acres of lush countryside. Air conditioned and spacious rooms. Friendly staff. Fresh and good home cooked food. Personal tour of garden with Many plants and trees. I had the best massage there. Definitely recommend it to both couples and solo travellers. Also families. Very near elephant orphanage.
Real value for money! What a wonderful stay..”
This is the best place to start your holiday in Sri Lanka. We had a very warm welcome by sakula and his parents. They are very lovely people living in a very nice home with a beautiful garden.They spoiled us with the most delicious food.Sakula also gave us very good advices and helped us lot planning our trip. He took us around and made everything perfect. You will feel like living with this lovely family forever.This is truly worthwhile experience.Just go there and feel it yourself. Highly recommended.
