    My name is Mahalia, I was running an advertising agency in South Africa where I fell in love with surfing. I quit my job to embrace a new lifestyle 1.5 year ago. I have now started a project in Unakuruwa, 10 min from Tangalle, Sri Lanka, I bought a piece of land with an old antique house which I have renovated and built an additional 3 wooden cottages The idea is to use the land to host and provide a space for people to gather, share and explore the surroundings.

    The land is in the forest with lots of fruit trees and fertile soil and sometimes we see monkeys in the morning. It is walking distance to 3 beautiful bays (Silence beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Sri Lanka), fisherman's bay where you can surf a warm water point break and snorkel and jungle beach another paradise. Unakuruwa, the village is still very local and uncrowded in this area and the villagers will soon know you and be your friends. Hiriketiya is also a very popular surf spot 15 min tuktuk ride from the house.

    I am looking at people to come for this season december - april and help with hosting, organising tours, and potentially developing the yoga and the restaurant and make some money out of it too. I will not be here for this season and there is a full time employed local lady.

    It is the second season and we already have bookings registered for the next months

    Locals are beautiful people, the village is walking distance, Tangalle is a city 10 min drive in tuktuk. There is plenty of surf around as well as cultural activities, you will definitely not struggle to fill up your free time around here :)

    I am looking at having people staying long term, (ou get a 1 month visa automatically when you land but you can request a 3 months visa in advance in your country before coming here and extend up to 6months)
