  • Help


    We are a little sick of finding house on rental and moving very often and some wired rules and regulation by some landlords. We are about to buy an old and broken house with some borrowing and move in immediately. While occupying the house, we want to repair and improve it as and when we get some cash in hand little by little.

    We need some helpers who can help us improving this house. Painting, repairing, repairing the roof, repairing the old doors and windows and helping our children in their school works and studies.

  • Accommodation


    We will give a room with bed, fan and mosquito net. There is a well to draw water and bathe. the water is just below the earth level may be 2 or 3 feet. We will try to get water pipe line connection as soon as possible. The toilet available right now when we writing this para is an eastern, squatting toilet. Not a western seating one. But it is a clean water flowing toilet.

    This house is an old house and the same house needed to be improved. in the roof and all other places.

    What else ...

    We have cycles the helpers can use to move around. We have tuk tuk and may be in the week-end while we are around we can take you to show around. The famous Bentota beach is 1.5 to 02 km away from our home. There is another beach Cinnamon bay beach in Beruwela which is also about 3- 4 km away from home.

    There are a few famous Budhdhist temples around the area and a shrine closer to the beach. There are turtle hatcheries may be 7 - 10 km away. We are regular hosts from many websites in our previous houses. But this new house is old and damaged we are buying it as it is and to get it improved depending on the money we get in hand.
