  • Description


    We retired to Sri Lanka and have a large property with a pool on the lagoon and beach. We have a small cottage which is self catering and 2 friendly dogs who love beach walks and cuddles. We are looking for a couple to stay and look after the Dogs, they need a beach walk every day and to be fed. We grow a variety of fruit and vegetables which you are welcome to eat from the garden. We have kayaks which you can use to see the mangroves in the lagoon and if you are a kitesurfer this is an awesome spot with flat water and a shallow lagoon or the sea with a small reef just off the beach.

    We are in a small village with a shop that caters for most things, it is a kitesurfing area with a beautiful lagoon so you can kitesurf or take lessons at one of the nearby schools. Our lagoon has beautiful mangroves which you can explore on one of our kayaks. We have a swimming pool and deck that you can kick back and relax on and have sundowners with an awesome view. We are growing fruits and vegetables on the property and also have another small hut which we rent out.

    Dog sitting and taking them on beach walks and feeding them. They get scared if there are storms or kids setting off firecrackers and love cuddles. We have a gardener and housekeep who come in the morning during the week. The cottage is self catering with a kitchen and bathroom and there is a shared washing machine on the property. If you are creative or like gardening we would love your input but it really all about the dogs
