About our home

Our beautiful, spacious architect designed house www.jungletide.com was finished in 2008. It is set in 2.5 acres of gardens with a stream and stunning views of the Knuckles mountains. It is 3,000 feet above sea level and enjoys an ideal climate of around 28c in the day and about 18c in the evenings, there is wildlife in abundance, particularly bird-life. We have full time resident caretakers (who have their own quarters) who will look after you like royalty and will ensure that your holiday is truly relaxing. You will not have to clean when you leave!
Please be aware that we have two friendly, short haired, rescue dogs, Toffee and Suki. They are not allowed in the guest bedrooms or on any furniture. However they do have their own dog-beds in the hallway so anybody with Allergies should be aware of their presence.
The bungalow 11K from the World Heritage city of Kandy which is the historic Capital of the Kandyan Kings and has the most important Buddhist temple on the island as well as many other fantastic sights. Being situated in the centre of the island it is an ideal base for touring and sight-seeing. For further information please look at our website www.jungletide.com. You can also use points to take individual en-suite rooms from March to June and September to mid December , as we also run our home as a guesthouse. An en-suite room for two people including breakfast is 100 points per night.
Please contact me for further details my direct mail is jungletide@gmail.com

More about us

  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?

Neighbourhood

We are lucky to be only 30mins from Kandy but out of the hustle bustle and pollution of that city. Here you can see birds, monkeys, lizards and squirrels in the trees all around. You can hike through the tea Estates and wave to the friendly locals who willalways be pleased to see you.... the air is clean and cool and the surroundings stunning. the walking is easy because of paths everywhere - but it is very hilly and the views are breathtaking!
