“We had a fabulous trip to Sri Lanka, thanks to Sally and Jerry asking us to exchange. We used Jungle Tide as the base for our 3 week trip, although we only stayed there about 10 days, as we wanted to explore as much of the island as we could in the time we had. Sally was very helpful in making our arrangements, and booked our airport transfer, and a driver for our middle week, when we went further afield. Jungle Tide was a very comfortable base, with delicious Sri Lankan food provided by resident cook Rani. We particularly enjoyed taking the dogs for walks, using the local bus service into Kandy, and watching the wildlife from the veranda. Sri Lanka is a wonderful country, with loads to offer for a varied holiday, and such friendly people. Thanks for the exchange! Jane & Richard Jude & Richard ”
“Wonderful place, delightful people, a swap made in heaven and a balm for the soul. Sally and Jerry should be knighted at the very least !!”
“Sally and Jerry were perfect guests. Thank you!”
Where is it?
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!
