Peter is a very good host. The house is spacious, it was clean & very quiet the kitchen is good. It is a bit far from kandy, about 20 min by car, during the day it's a bit hot and the only cooling devices are the fans, although it is not a big deal at night. All in all it is rec…

I was born in Sri Lanka but I travel quite regularly and that continues to provide me with travellerinsights which help me improve what I do as a host. It is a great feeling to being able to contribute positively (however big or small) to someone's experience of your home count…
