Review of Vista House
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 22 Dec 2016via mobile
We had the pleasure of staying at vista house for 2 nights, great location away from the hustle and bustle of the city - highly recommended. If your in kandy we would stay here! Our host was amazing and sorted out our every need and was very helpful. Breakfast was great too!

The room is basic, but very much acceptable. The bathroom was also quite standard. Overall we felt that the price was a bit too high though for what you get. Location wise the guesthouse is up in the mountains, so you are obliged to take a Tuktuk drive from kandy. On the other hand, breakfast was really good ! The owner made us an amazing fruit juice of passion fruit and pineapple and she prepared pancakes for us ! One of the best breakfasts I have had in Sri Lanka. She's very friendly and she kindly offered us a free Tuktuk ride to the station where we needed to catch our train.

The house is incredible. Breakfast was great, and the host is lovely.
It is located in the mountain over Kandy, in a quiet area. You can go to Kandy city center in tuc tuc ( aprox 500 rup). We were 3 and they have two double rooms connected.

We had the pleasure of staying 2 days in this wonderful house of Waruni and her family. From the minute we arrived everything was just perfect. Such a warm welcome! Rooms are clean and have everything you need. Location is up he hill but can be easily reached by tuktuk. Also Waruni made us an amazing breakfast and on our last day she even got us a breakfast package because we had to leave early to catch a train.

When in Kandy, definitely choose to stay here!!

This house is just amazing, in the hills of Kandy with a super nice view. The room was the nicest room we had so far, clean, big, good bed and pillows. Also a nice terrace where we saw monkeys in the morning. The owner is very friendly and helpful (and an amazing cook). Breakfast is super! A must book when you are in Kandy!

Stayed over the perahera festival for two nights. They have two rooms, one is a twin and one is a triple. The beds were huge, and the rooms were very clean and had aircon and complimentary shampoo etc (even toothpaste).

Views were absolutely stunning. You can go up onto the roof and see for miles as it is up in the hills. They have their own tuk tuk so it doesn't take long to order one to get into town despite the fact it is up in the hills.

I stayed with my 5 year old and they were very good at making sure he was also looked after and breakfast was delicious; including a selection of Sri Lankan and continental foods. There was even marmite and pancakes one morning. The morning coffee was also good quality.

All round very enjoyable stay. Definitely recommended for those visiting Kandy.
