About Yohan Galapitage

My wife and I are living in England with our two small boys. I was born in Srilanka while my wife is English. We are hoping to move to Srilanka with the boys very soon.

Why Yohan Galapitage chose Central Province

My wife and I bought his property when we fell in love with it when we saw it for the first time. Our dream house and a dream location. We would eventually live in this house when we move to Srilanka.

What makes this house unique

The house I located very close to the town but got the feel of a remote location. Great for the kids with its big garden and most of all its cooler.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed at the house a couple of times now and the latest was for a family get together in Sri Lanka.

We all had a wonderful time and the house was amazing as usual! We love the beautiful views and the idyllic setting, seemingly a world away from the hustle and bustle of Kandy town although it is only a short drive into town.



Margaret's cooking was excellent and she was ever willing to help, as was Mrs Meegaswatte who was hospitable and helpful at all times.



We definitely recommend this fabulous house and are already looking forward to our next stay.



Thanks guys!

Magnificent villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5
This is the best house in Sri Lanka , which we rented . The house has everything - equipped kitchen , washing machine , two bathrooms and two toilets, hot water, TV , tape recorder . The house has 4 bedrooms, 2 twin and two combined . The beds are very comfortable. The house is cool even in very hot weather. Green field in front of the house with a lawn and a ping - pong table. Second floor surrounds a large terrace with a magnificent view of the valley and mountains . The house has a large library and board games. The Internet is, but weak . In an isolated part of the house there was a remarkable woman , an au pair to help with travel arrangements, buy food and prepare meals. She lived funny kittens and funny dachshund.
We will definitely recommend this house and all familiar with pleasure once again dwell in it themselves.

Kandy is 100km (62miles) north east of Colombo and although the town lacks an airport, there are a number of buses and trains running between the two destinations.

It is Sri Lanka's hill capital and, at 488 metres above sea level, has a much cooler and pleasant climate than Colombo or the southern towns. Kandy is classed as a World Heritage City by UNESCO and is home to the famous tooth relic of the Lord Buddha.

Kandy is the venue of the Esala Perahera, easily the most colourful festival in Asia, held in July/August each year, in honour of the tooth relic. The torch-lit streets are filled with elephants and costumed dancers as they pay homage to the casket of the sacred tooth relic carried by the king of the elephants. The procession moves along the streets for seven consecutive nights and concludes on the day of the August full moon.

The tooth relic is housed in a golden temple known as the 'Dalada Maligawa' - the Temple of the Tooth. It is home to wonderful architecture.

Other Activities: Site seeing, nature tours, festivals, nature reserves, temples, dancing

Golf: Victoria Golf club in Kandy : located 45min drive from the house.

The 18 hole course is one of the beautiful places in Asia.
