Notre maison

Our home is an architect designed bungalow completed in 2008 in the style of the planter's bungalows from the colonial era. It is spacious and naturally cool with high ceilings and verandas. Each bedroom is en-suite. and there is a large living room and dining room with a fully equipped kitchen in mahogany and granite. All rooms have French windows opening onto the verandah and are furnished with high quality mahogany and draped with raw silk curtains and furnishings. The house has 2.5 acres of garden with a stream and a 12 metre swimming pool. It also has dramatic views of the mountains. We have a couple who look after the house and our guests - they are lovely people and excellent cooks of the local cuisine.
Unfortunately we are unable to offer swaps in August or from 10th December - 10th January As those are the times when we are busiest with paying guests - but if you want to consider staying during those times we offer good discounts to home-swappers!


Apprenez plus sur nous-mêmes

  1. We are a British couple with 5 grown up children and 5 grandchildren, some of whom we occasionally travel with or who may visit if we have a swap in the UK. We also have two lovely and very friendly rescue dogs at our home in Jungle Tide, I only mention this in case anyone hates dogs or has allergies. The dogs (Toffee and Suki) are not allowed in any of the bedrooms or on any furniture. They are very used to a constant stream of guests, and are great fun to accompany you on walks - they can even bring you home if you get lost amongst the tea bushes!

  2. We Also let out individual en-suite rooms on a B & B basis for 110 points per night for two people please see our seperate entry. We cannot accept swaps in July/August or at Christmas/ Jan/Feb as we also run as a guest house and these are peak times. We offer preferential rates to people from LHS wanting to book as guests during these times.

  3. Sally was born in Sri Lanka as the 4th generation of British tea planters to be born out there. We both retired here permanently in 2015. We now run our home Jungle Tide as a guesthouse, sWe both love to travel and when we can afford to we travel extensively and we come back to the UK frequently to see our children and Grand children. So are always interested in UK swaps!



Where is it?

Votre Quartier

Our house is located on a tea estate about 11k from the historic town of Kandy which is a world Heritage City. It's elevation is about 1,000m and it has a delightful climate - hot in the day and cool in the evenings. there is an abundance of tropical birds and butterflies in our garden and occasionally you will see a mongoose, monitor lizard, porcupine or wild boar. The walking and rambling is delightful, and can be demanding if you want it to be. Most of all though it is a place to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the 'real Sri' Lanka.

Kandy will provide lots of cultural interest and it is possible to make day trips to many of Sri Lanka's most famous attractions. However the one thing we do not have is a buzzing nightlife! This is a place to come if you want to relax and enjoy the wonders of this island paradise!
