Discover Trinco from this cute lagoon side home.

The space

Fasmeed’s is a cute little place made especially for guests. Facing the lagoon and surrounded by a little garden, the home consists of two rooms with attached bathroom adjoining the main home of the Fasmeed family. The rooms can host 6 people, there’s parking space and they built a little hut right next to the lagoon, where you can hang out in the shade, read a book or (try to) catch a fish. A great place to use as a home base to explore Trinco and its surroundings.

Interaction with guests

Fasmeed, his mother and uncle run this place together. Fasmeed is a local school teacher who studies law at the local Eastern University. His mother takes care of the house and cooks killer curries, especially the ones with fresh-caught lagoon fish. The uncle is a certified tour guide who can take you all the way to Pigeon Island and other attractions.

We booked the place for two nights, but could only stay for one night because the weather was too hot and humid and the room had only one ceiling fan which did not provide enough cooling/ventilation for all three of us. The host is helpful and welcoming. He helped us arrange transportation and a snorkeling tour. We did not interact with the family a lot, they offered breakfast in the morning (which we thought it was complimentary, but later discovered we had to pay 1000 LKR for it. Which is way too much!) If you're visiting this place, (a) make sure the weather is not too hot or that you can handle it (b) ask for prices before doing any activity (c) book a snorkelling tour with the nearby Pigeon Island Resort (it will be worth the money, unlike the one offered by the host's relative).

We stayed two nights in this wonderful place. The place near the lagoon is really nice. Family is great and will definitely help you to arrange a boat trip or whatever you'll need. Accomodation is simple, don't expect too much but fair enough.

Wonderful situated on the lagoon, 1km walk to the beach. A little north of Nillavelli, so not many tourists in this part : we were quite an attraction. Stayed two nights here, friendly host and good food , we had a great time here.

We love this place! So worth it getting a bit north of trinco! The place is set on a river with local fisherman with a great chill out hut where you can read a book and eat amazing food cooked by the family. The rooms are simple, food is fantastic. Make sure you ask them for a traditional sir lankan breakfast :) we will totally go back to this little paradise.

Hôtes charmants et trés serviables. Cadre trés agréable et calme. Prestation un peu chére pour un esthétique un peu décevant, hausse des prix apparemment en lien avec la haute saison des plages de l'est. Son frére propose des excursions apparemment sympas sur la riviere et les îles, que nous n'avons malheureusement pas pu essayer.

Het huis ligt op een prachtige plek, heerlijk koel aan het water, met schaduw . Helaas was het huis smerig in vergelijking met andere adressen in Sri Lanka, we moesten om lakens vragen. Nadat we de verhuurder aanspraken maakte hij nog wel een van de twee kamers schoon. We kregen een ontbijt dat niet in verhouding stond tot de prijs. De broer van de verhuurder gaf oneerlijke informatie over Snorkelen op Pidgeon island.

Neverbeen User Profile

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.
