A colorful place to kick back by the sea. Price is for a double room with attached bathroom and there are four rooms available.
As colorful as they come, Shriyantha's home is a great place to stay. Built some 50 years ago by Shriyantha's grandfather, it's full of character and reminders of times gone by, but at the same time you'll be constantly reminded of the present by the sound of the waves slapping down on Tangalle beach. Needless to say, we loved it here.
Interaction with guests
Your host Shriyantha is a friendly, middle-aged mom of three, born and raised in Tangalle itself. She and her husband have been running the place for four years now and they recently bought a van to provide transportation and local tours to her guests. In addition, Shriyantha gives cooking classes and offers her kitchen for you to use, but she can also arrange food herself if you prefer.
Neverbeen offers a wide variety of rare homes off the beaten track, from fisherman's huts and tree houses to heritage homes and tea estates. Our team hand-picks and visits every home and meet all hosts to make ensure guests have a positively memorable stay in places they've never been.
We provide travellers and home owners in challenging locations with access to one another, by offering communication services, online marketing services and tourism training, so that locals can make a living off their home and travellers can get to stay in places they have never been.
As such, Neverbeen works for a world in which everyone has the chance to earn income by renting out their home, regardless of language, internet access and tourism experience.
In Sri Lanka, Dishan manages our growing group of homes in cooperation with our scouts, while Rohan creates listings and provides service. In Amsterdam, Marten works out international growth plans. Our team of in-house programmers is constantly developing the platform itself and Ernst & Young does our finances.
The first country we're active in is Sri Lanka, a beautiful country with many undiscovered places to stay. Due to it recently having opened up to tourism after decades of conflict, it is a great place to start and pilot the Neverbeen concept. We plan to expand to ten countries before the end of 2017.
