  • Description


    Hi we are Manoj and Elke, a Sri Lankan-Belgian couple who just opened a small boutique homestay in the beautiful village of Gurubebila, near to Weligama, in the South of Sri Lanka. Elke is a yoga teacher and has a small rooftop yoga shala where she teaches daily classes for retreat guests and outside visitors. Manoj is a hairdresser and has a small hair salon in the backyard. We like to share our passions and meet like-minded people who can give us a helping hand and become part of the family.

  • Help


    We are mainly looking for experts in website building ( finishing and improving our WordPress website, check SEO) and online marketing (advise how to promote through email and social media) to help to get an online presence. However, we could also use some help with our garden, someone who is knowledgeable about tropical plants, who can help to set up our vegetable and herb garden. Handly people who can work with wood and repair, as we are having some issues with our cupboards and could use some ideas to finish the house. And also painters who can do a nice decorative wall painting in our hall, or other parts of the house.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We love to share and learn, we can offer you free yoga classes, exchange in Sri Lankan culture, language, and cooking. We live in a laid-back village near to the best surfing spots, within 5 min walk from one of Sri Lanka's most stunning beaches, and nearby nature and paddy fields. Still near to the cities, but away from the big crowd so you can enjoin a relaxing stay.
