À propos de ce logement
Stay in a farmhouse next to the sea.
Mahinda’s home is a little farm house surrounded by the vegetable gardens that are cultivated by Mr. Mahinda himself. The house has two rooms with shared bathroom and kitchen that can be rented per room or in its entirety. A special place, this is, with its quiet rural feeling close to the beach.

Mr. Mahinda has recently retired after a life of working in the big cement factories nearby. He and his wife are now farming and running their little tourism enterprise together. All of his six (!) sons are living abroad, but his dog Laika has become a much loved and obedient companion. Upon request, Mahinda is happy to help with organizing trips and tasty local food.
Of all that Sri Lanka has to offer, Trinco might be our favorite Neverbeen location. It’s not that the beaches are perfect, the nature is the wildest or the culture is the most abundant, but it’s the right mix and it really feels like something is about to happen there. Too early for mass tourism (which will surely come) Trinco hosts the more adventurous type of traveller. Real backpackers come by bus or train, but seriously, save yourself some trouble by taking the $35 flight from Colombo - Ratmalana (Helitours) and treat yourself to one of the nicest coastal landings you’ll see, straight across the unique Trinco harbour. Once there, do all the sunbathing, temple-visiting and island hopping you need to do, but don’t forget to visit the fish and vegetable markets downtown and the beach temple in this little gem of a town called Salli, just above Uppuveli beach. Once there, a lovely toothless bloke called Kutien (Ku-Tee-Ann) or any of his more ‘toothful’ colleagues would be happy to take you on a boat trip all the way to the bottom of Swami Rock.
Mahinda’s is very close (300m) to Nilaveli beach, one of Sri Lanka’s best beaches.

Neverbeen offers a wide variety of rare homes off the beaten track, from fisherman's huts and tree houses to heritage homes and tea estates. Our team hand-picks and visits every home and meet all hosts to make ensure guests have a positively memorable stay in places they've never been.
We provide travellers and home owners in challenging locations with access to one another, by offering communication services, online marketing services and tourism training, so that locals can make a living off their home and travellers can get to stay in places they have never been.
As such, Neverbeen works for a world in which everyone has the chance to earn income by renting out their home, regardless of language, internet access and tourism experience.
In Sri Lanka, Dishan manages our growing group of homes in cooperation with our scouts, while Rohan creates listings and provides service. In Amsterdam, Marten works out international growth plans. Our team of in-house programmers is constantly developing the platform itself and Ernst & Young does our finances.
The first country we're active in is Sri Lanka, a beautiful country with many undiscovered places to stay. Due to it recently having opened up to tourism after decades of conflict, it is a great place to start and pilot the Neverbeen concept. We plan to expand to ten countries before the end of 2017.
