Beautiful, spacious and modern house in the peaceful hills of Kandy. Minutes from the heart of the city, including historic cultural attractions like the sacred Tooth Temple. Stunning views with all necessary amenities, including full time housekeeper.
While staying at Mountain Views, you can make day trips to many interesting places within 60km range in 3 to 4 days: Sigiriya Rock Fortress & Dambulla Rock Temple, Nuwara Eliya & tea plantations, Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage & herbal gardens etc.
The house is located in between Dharshana Mawatha and Deepthi Mawatha. However, primary access is from Dharshana Mawatha. The elevation difference between the two roads is about 15m. Hence the access to the house from Dharshana Mawatha is at the 2nd floor level where the main living area is set out. From the common balcony at the entrance floor, a panoramic view allows you to see a large undisturbed area of land and a range of mountains. This is a very relaxing place which you would love!
Four of the bed rooms are at 1st floor level and one at 2nd floor level. All have the views of the mountains.
You have a private and a very spacious kitchen and dining area at the ground floor with the exposure to natural environment. It is a reasonably equipped kitchen with basic facilities such as a gas cooker, rice cooker, kettle, fridge etc.

You can come by car, train or Sea Plane from Colombo to Kandy.
If you come by either train or Sea Plane we will arrange a pick up.
If you arrive by Sea Plane with Cinnamon Air from Central Colombo you will land on the reservoir just a few minutes from the house. It is a little jetty on the reservoir - no queues for baggage here!. I can highly recommend the sea plane as a quick and wonderfully scenic way to get to Kandy.
You can relax and have a glass of wine or beer at the main balcony in the evening while enjoying the panoramic view of the mountain peaks like a row of arrow tips.

We were living in Sydney for the last 25 years. I was working as a scientist and now retired. My wife is still working as an engineer.
Since I have retired now, I am having a relaxed life both in Sri Lanka and in Australia.
We love traveling. We love close association of our family and friends.
