The single room with en suite bathroom is part of the Welikande Villas Trekking center which has extensive grounds over looking the Knuckles Mountains and Lake Victoria Dam.
There is a good restaurant and lounge area for your free breakfast and subsequent evening meals if required
We have specially made this room available as we find there is an increasing amount of singles that would like to take part in our cookery and trekking events and cant get single rooms.

Reviewed 3 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We needed a large house for our family that was secluded but easy to reach.
We found a beautiful wooden house with views over the Knuckles Mountains and Victoria Lake it was love at first sight the kids could spread their wings in the grounds if I did not want to cook we just went up to the restaurant that had great sri lankan food.
The house is basic but very clean with housekeeping everyday.
The staff are friendly and unobtrusive.
We could relax wonderful

Management response:

Thank you for such a good review we enjoyed your company Michael

This spot is a breathtaking place. The views from all parts of the property are gorgeous and you will constantly see birds, butterflies, and other animals. Enjoy your Sri Lanka vacation by staying in this house, or one of the smaller villas on the property. You will be treated extremely well by Jeyakumar and Shamarla, and all the other staff. They are kind, patient, caring, and hospitable. The house does come with a basic kitchen, but we suggest letting Shamarla do all the cooking for you! Wonderful Sri Lankan meals with plenty of food. She will do her best to mix in items that children will enjoy as well. Michael, the owner, is easy to work with and very helpful, whether he is there at the time or back home and corresponding via email.

A few tips to know while staying there:
- 4 hours from airport, so be ready for more road travel upon arrival.
- Because it's up in the hills, getting to local attractions will take 1+ hours due to the roads and driving in...
