We had two great days at Kundala house. It lays hidden away from the business of the street, behind a temple, but only a small walk away from the beach, restaurants and shops. This beautiful green oasis is a great place to relax on your own balcony or on the wooden terrace on the little pond, were you can observe a lifly wildlife of abes, water buffaloes, birds, squirrels and others. Eva is so kind and helpful, you can really feel that she opens her home for you.
I can highly recommend this place. The apartments can be opened up, so a bigger family can stay together.
We were Eva's first guests and our stay was really enjoyable.
Designed rooms, clean and useful kitchen, perfect place for practice yoga and natural garden in the middle of jungles! Every day was like in some bbc program about animals xD black big monkeys, hundred kinds of birds, buffalos and varans, mongoose and fish..
The beach is in walking distance.
And Eva! She is super-friendly and open, with her help we met huge turtle in the ocean.
Amazing place: good architecture and decoration, full of nature, animals & birds, very very quiet, close to the beach.
Best wake ups ever in my life.
Owner helped us and gave us advice about food, surf, dive.
Just a perfect place to relax and enjoy.
We stayed 7 days at Kundala House, and enjoyed every minute of our time there! Tucked away at the back of Hikkaduwa, but close enough to the main street to walk (5 minutes). Eva was away during our stay but we managed just fine there alone and with her sweetest caretaker, Kalumame. The garden was really a showstopper for us, so much wildlife, birds etc (we saw water buffalo, snakes, monkeys, chipmunks, frogs the list goes on) Perfect for nature lovers! The room itself was perfect, breezy, very comfortable & clean. It had everything you needed. We really enjoyed spending time on the balcony relaxing or on the deck at the bottom of the garden for all the sights and sounds. We'll most certainly be back !
Yet it's been 2 years ago, we still remember what a wonderful week we had at Eva's house!
The special thing about this place is it fills like you're in the middle of a jungle although the see-line is pretty close to the house. That is why you are lucky to watch different birds and monkeys while chilling on the terrace.
Eva is SuperHost! We were pretty surprised to know that she built all the house almost herself - that's why she really cares about the comfort staying of her guests. She can also guide you and give tips about where to go in Hikkaduwa area.
My conclusion - highly recommended! Well done, Eva!
It was wonderful holidays,
Very atmospheric place!
Good for this price)
thank you Eva,you was very friendly!
My Husband and I stayed at Kulanda House for 9 nights over the New Year. Eva was an amazing host...very friendly, informative and efficient. Our studio was modern, clean and very peaceful. We practiced Yoga down under the yoga hut each day and watched as the wildlife passed by. Monkeys swinging from the trees, buffalo's walking in the distance and beautiful birds flying by. This place is so relaxing and serene....we had the best nights sleep every night. The beach is not too far away and to be honest it is nice to be away from the nightlife that unfolds in the evening. It was 10 out 10 for us....
