  • Description


    Hello, My name is Christian and I began building this in 2010 after I came with my family to Sri Lanka for a holiday and fell in love with the country. We found a fisherman's cottage on the coast and could see the potential in the location and the possibility of being part of Sri Lanka's growing tourist economy. We built as an extension of the art spaces we used to run in Sussex in the UK and imagined another venture where artists and writers, creatives and families could congregate and create in a tropical paradise location! This is a holiday home with 6 bedrooms and a potential restaurant and bar situated directly overlooking the sea on the southeast coast of Sri Lanka.

    You will be living and helping in a beautiful location with comfortable rooms, great swimming, surfing and snorkelling. More importantly the tourist trade here is beginning to thrive but we are still very much in the real Sri Lanka where you will be living in the midsts of a real fishing village among the local fishermen and their families. It is a great place to meet guests staying from around the world. You will learn new skills and have the opportunity to showcase and teach us new skills in hospitality and building, creative expression and gardening.

    The initial build is almost complete and we are now in the finishing stages with some additions to be made such as making extra bathrooms and erecting gates, decorating and finishing interiors, designing the outside areas by laying concrete, establishing gardens, positioning planters and creating sculptures for the garden. When guests are staying we need to provide cleaning and cooking services and sometimes childcare for ourselves as we have a 5 year old who is sometimes on site. Skills required and appreciated are surfing, scuba diving, snorkelling, cooking, laying concrete, childcare, construction skills, cleaning, artistic input, sculpting, carving, electrics, plumbing, carpentry, housekeeping and painting.

    Autres infos...

    We are conveniently situated near the main road into town where you can either catch a bus or hail a Tuk Tuk to reach Tangalle, a 10 minute drive from the Beach. Use of the house scooter may be on offer too. On average we would expect a 5 hour day from you, starting early in the morning which will give you plenty of time to explore the surrounding area. Tangalle has bustling town centre and we are on a lovely small bay with it's own coral reef and waves for surfing. We are a short trip away from the beautiful surfing beach in Hiriketiya, The Women's Lace Centre of Dikwella, Whale Watching in Mirissa and much more!
