    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Very relaxed atmosphere to understand the cultural background of living in Jaffna, I would encourage more people to visit the north of Sri Lanka & take good memories back. As long as you have the skills and willing to learn we would be happy to have you.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Flexible timing as long as you can do some work. The house is situated 1 KM from the main Kandy-Jaffna road and any other public transportation, Jaffna does not have many tourist & culturally very conservative.
