This warm family house is a great home base from where to explore Weligama, the surrounding area and Sanjeevani’s awesome cooking.
Price is for a double bedroom with attached bathroom including hot shower. There's another double bedroom available.
The home itself is a well-kept, warm family home. As part of their house, they built an extra bedroom with double bed and attached bathroom especially for guests. Meals are served on the veranda, where we heard live organ music come from one of the neighbouring houses.
Interaction with guests
Your host, Sanjeevani, lives here with her husband Ranjith. Sanjeevani is all genuine smiles, as she served us delicious Helepa, a Sri Lankan sweet she made herself, to go with the herbal tea. This treatment certainly was no coincidence, as she’s known to love cooking and can even give proper cooking classes to her guests. Ranjith is a happy chap too, who is a tuktuk driver so he can take you all over the place and can arrange for longer trips too, for instance to the Sinharaja forest. All in all a really nice couple of hosts, these two.
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.
