We had an amazing time there! Hesh's parents are really warm, welcoming people and made us feel at home. The spacious living room is even more beautiful than on the pictures and with all the lights and decoration a perfect place to chill. The room is also very nice, clean and cozy. We were even visited by monkeys on our balcony in the morning. Hesh's father helped us organize various trips to Kandy and the closest locations to be, for a fair price and always with a experinced driver who too made us feel very safe. On our last day he accompanied us to the city and made it his own obligation to help us pick the perfect souvenier. There are many resaturants in the city center, easy to reach be a very cheap bus (10ct) or with a tuk tuk (about 3€, per way). We wish you all the best, from our heart to yours.

Hesh sent a driver to pick us up. The place is a 5 min tuktuk drive from the city center. No walking distance, you have to go by bus (there are plenty of them, it's no problem). The room is really nice, as you see in the pictures, it's also quiet and comfortable. Hesh wasn't there but his parents did everything to make us feel welcome, and communication was good. Plenty of day trips can be arranged. The price listed is per person.

Loved staying at hillside with our hosts Chandra and Lakshmi ever helpful and kind hosts who always had time for you and assisted with anything you needed. Chandra was able to get us tickets for the Kandy Esala Perahera and ensured that we found our seats. We retired to stay again at the sky view accomodation which is a self contained unit and again made to feel very welcome. Would absolutely recommend anyone travelling to Kandy to stay at Hesh's residences. The food was also excellent a wonderful assortment of local fruits and Sri Lanka cuisine

Hesh's place is located a short bus ride from central Kandy. It would be a quiet area, but nearby roadworks made it noisy during our stay. Hesh lives overseas, but his parents, who were our hosts, were very nice and welcoming. The room was clean, and our private bathroom had great shower pressure. Hesh's father organised a fun trip to sigiriya at a reasonable price, and managed to find us reserved seats on a train to Ella at the last minute. Having said that, his enthusiasm was sometimes overbearing. Overall, it was a comfortable stay in Kandy!

The only place to stay in Kandy, you simply couldn't have a more authentic, peaceful and seamless experience elsewhere. Outside of the hustle and bustle yet very easy to get back into it.
