    Description

    I escaped from Ukraine because economical, political and worst - social crisis and now trying to get new life here. It is not easy because I haven't any funds and doing everything by myself, so I will be glad to any help)) Mostly I need help with room cleaning and gardening, but also will be glad to masseuse, decorator, cooker, electrician...

    About my place:
    150 years old house of the colonial period with antique furniture. Large lounge with TV and sofa, dining area with kitchenette. On the terrace with a beautiful view of the garden you can enjoy breakfast, a coffee or do some work on laptop. There is a place for sports (yoga, volleyball, badminton, horizontal bar), hammocks and outdoor fireplace for barbecue at the garden with palms, fruit trees and flowers. Quiet, cozy place just in 5 minutes walk from the one of the best beach in Sri Lanka - Narigama beach.

    Location of the house favorably differs from the coastal zone of the lack of noise from the road and railroad. And also here is largest in Hikkaduwa yard with palm trees and flowers. This place is great for families with children.

    The bus stop is a 5-minute walk away. The beach is just 500 meters away - you will come to the central part, the most suitable for rest. Parking is available on the territory of our yard.

    What else ...

    You can spend free time on huge Narigama beach, surfing, snorkeling, turtle watching. Many shops and cafes in Hikkaduwa. Also available excursions around the island. Only in 30 minutes by bus there is Galle (Galle was known as Gimhathiththa before the arrival of the Portuguese in the 16th century, when it was the main port on the island. Galle reached the height of its development in the 18th century, during the Dutch colonial period. Galle is the best example of a fortified city built by the Portuguese in South and Southeast Asia, showing the interaction between Portuguese architectural styles and native traditions.)

    You can reach our house by tuk-tuk for 150 RS from the train station "Hikkaduwa". It's 3 km from station to the house. Also you can take bus from station to bus stop "Narigama". And if you traveling by bus, just ask to stop at "Narigama". You can easily recognize this place because of big hotel "Avenra". From this bus stop you should go by Narigama Pathana street and turn left after "Vocational Training Center". In 100 meters you'll reach our black steel gates.
