Our home is close to the city center, yet Nuwara Eliya is not about busy city life, but about natural surroundings, comparatively fresh air in the highest altitude in Sri Lanka.
There is wooden flooring in the corridor, living & dinning room and access to a fully equipped kitchen to prepare your own meals.
Breakfast is not included in the rate, but available on request at US$ 3.00 per person.
I will be happy to answer any of your questions once you have confirmed your booking.

The space

We are located within a walking distance from downtown Nuwara Eliya, the Gregory Lake, the Nuwara Eliya Golf Club, and located in the most comfortable and exclusive area of the city of Nuwara Eliya.

Guest access

Guests would have full access to the entire apartment unless you book one or two of the three bedrooms, in which case the other bedroom/s will not be accessible to you.
However the kitchen and living areas will remain common to all in house, so please feel free to bring what you like to cook for yourselves.

Interaction with guests

I will be available during the entire length of your stay, as I live downstairs.

Other things to note

I am a member of the Nuwara Eliya Golf Club and will be happy to introduce you as my guests should you be interested in dinning there during your stay.
There is an Ayurveda Spa right across the road from our home and many other guests who have enjoyed their treatment have informed me of their complete satisfaction. A full-body treatment lasting one and half hour, costs approximately Rs 4,000.
Sri Lanka is reputed for excellent Gem stones and I will be happy to introduce you a highly reputed Gem and Jewelry store in Nuwara Eliya where the Gem stone you buy will also receive a certificate of authenticity.

We spent 3 nights at kevins place and had a really good time. The room is nice and very clean, the area mostly quiet. Kevin is a very caring and helpful host and it was a pleasure to meet him. We would definitely recommend this place.

Kevin is a very nice person! If you need help, just tell him and he will help you as soon as possible. He can inform a tuk tuk driver to you to help you travel in Nuwara Eliya if you need. My friend and I really have a nice time in Nuwara Eliya because of Kevin's help.

Kevin is a wonderful host, who will go above and beyond to cater to his guest needs!! We enjoyed our 3 days stay at his scenic residence, not far from the lake. We really loved our trip to Nuwera Eliya! side note: Ask to see his garden! herbs, fruits, citrus!! Antony

Unfortunately Kevin was unwell for our arrival, which resulted in our tuk tuk not collecting us, and the room not being ready. We suggest you read all Kevin's good reviews as our experience seems to be out of character. He seems a nice person and we wish him well.

We stayed at Kevin's and his parents house for two nights. Kevin has a "super host" title for a reason! Kevin is a very interesting person and he has so many stories to share about Sri lanka, organid farming etc. His parents were most lovely, knowledgeable people - just a joy to get to spend time with. On top of all that Kevin's friend, the tuk-tuk driver named Sana is super friendly, fun loving, great driver with a good sense of humor. All in all - great experience! Don't miss out on Kenvin's&Sana's recommendation on a dosa-lunch!

We stayed 2 nichts at Kevin's house and liked it very much. The room we stayed in was very big and clean. Kevin was very ambitious in giving us tips what to do and given us information about the history about Sri Lanka.

Kevin User ProfileKevin is a superhost.

The most interesting part of hosting guests at my home is the opportunity I get to understand more about people, their diverse cultures, interests and outlook on life. For the past decade I have been in the profession of journalism, while I began my professional life as an hotelier, starting off as a management trainee at the Royal Berkshire hotel in Ascot, London. I then worked at the Orlando Marriott World Center and retired as an hotelier following the December 2004 Tsunami having been the General Manager of Sri Lanka's most luxurious and expensive boutique hotel at the time.
I enjoy the climate in Nuwara Eliya, the comparatively fresh air, and accumulating information about anything.
Either way I do my very best towards ensuring a comfortable, pleasant and memorable stay at my home for all of my guests and my life motto is "empathize with the world through learning".
