Dear Elise, Thank you very much for your lovely words. We loved hosting your family. We would like to think the place is ideal for families with young children, so hope we get to host more families.

If you are looking to get away this is the perfect location. At the same time major attractions are just a few kilometres away, easily accessible by bike or tuk tuk. The cabin is just a few hundred metres from a lake that you can go to for a dip to cool down when needed and the l…

Although Peter was not in the country, he was available 24h, responded immediately and gave us helpful tips. His employees were very nice and welcoming and helped us whenever we needed something. I can definetely recommend to stay at this beautiful spot in the middle of nowhere.

After 6 weeks travelling in Sri Lanka this was a perfect break. The cabin is completely private, on it’s own land and with stunning views of Lion Rock. Having out own kitchen to cook breakfast and chill a couple of beers was perfect. And the twinkling lights at night to deter wil…

Hi Tim, Thank you for the lovely message. I am pleased you found the kitchen useful. Not many use it, unfortunately. Thank you also for the candid feedback, and I have managed to resolve all but one. But will act on it when I am in Sri Lanka next week. It is that type of feedback that helps me to do better. Thanks again for staying at the cabin. Take care, Peter

Peter, Raja and Sumith are the ultimate hosting team. We had an amazing time in Peter's wonderfully secluded yet accessible cottage. We had a view of Sygiria rock to ourselves. Peter had bicycles for us to use which were perfect for exploring the area. A wonderful two night stay…

Our stay in Peter’s cottage was such a lovely and unique experience. It is nestled in between Sigyria Rock and a beautiful lake (you can swim if you want to, we didn’t have the opportunity but it looked amazing!) it is a 15 minute walk to all the restaurants and shops so very con…

Definitely the highlight of the trip. Absolutely beautiful setting. Wonderful hospitality. Clean, comfortable, and quiet. It really felt like we had Sigiriya all to ourselves.
