We love hosting international travelers and have had many people come and stay with us at our home over the last 15 years. We can help travelers to go and see many sights in the area and help to arrange day trips to other parts of Sri Lanka if they are interested. When we have travelers stay with us, we think of them as part of the family.
We are looking for volunteers that can help us make our beach property better with general maintenance, some small construction/gardening projects and painting. We would love input from volunteers as well about what would make the property more appealing.
Either a private beach cabana or a room with a bed, bathroom and fan at our house
There are many sights too see in the area: beautiful beaches, boat tours through mangroves and to different islands in the area, a turtle rehabilitation center and hatchery, moonstone mine etc. We can help arrange any tours or outings our volunteers would like to go on.
