Space is located in one of the greatest beaches in the world for turtle nesting. There are 5 different species of turtles migrating to this beach each year for nesting. This is the only beach in Sri Lanka where you can see turtles laying eggs. And these tours are done by professional from home town who runs a project to save turtles and which benefits the local community. We also have a beautiful and peaceful beach full of seashells and rocks where you can have a dreamy sunset.
“I had a wonderful time at Sumudu's place. I was looking for a quiet place in nature at the beach and this is exactly what it is. It is very simple but beautiful. You see peacocks (!), large lizards and small monkeys in the garden and its surroundings. It was incredible to see the stars and the fireflies in the bushes that looked as if shooting stars were falling into Sumudu's garden. Sumudu and his business partner, the cook did everything to make my stay as comfortable as possible. They organized a yoga math for me and brought me to an Ayurveda treatment nearby. As a single female traveler, I always felt safe and relaxed at Sumudu's place. I wanted to try the local traditional curd with palm honey (highly recommend) which was not on the menu and they bought it for me, so I can try it. I had a wonderful time and highly recommend this small paradise.”
Our bungalow is directly on the private beach .. just the right to relax in the hammock .. Kitchen is equipped with everything you need at a Aufwnthalt. Also there are enough restaurants all around with fresh seafood .. The town of Tangalle is about 1.5 km walk away .. there are good opportunities to buy exotic fruits and vegetables uds
“It’s not even a middle of nowhere, it’s the end of nowhere. Tranquility. Quietness. Isolation. Lonely beach. Rare people passing by. Absolutely unique location! Tangalle beach is a safe place – sometimes we even didn’t lock our hut, there are no people with bad intentions at all. Anke is one of the best hosts I have ever met on Airbnb. She was always in touch (easily reached by WhatsUpp), she always gave her recommendations and directions about local food, activities, places of interest, helped to organize airport transfer. Hut was exactly the same like on the photos, no surprises here. Kitchen was fully equipped with the gas stove, fridge, all necessary dishes, kitchen towels. Drinking water was included as well, which was of great value. Very simple shower and toilet, clean towels were provided as well. Mosquitos net on the bed saved a lot of our blood, mosquitos are extremely evil there. Please be ready to meet a lot of creatures inside the house – we personally met lizards and chipmunks (ground squirrels) – they became our good fellow friends. However, others made our life a bit uncomfortable: aints, rats, snakes, huge bugs, flies, insects. But that’s Asia and Mother Nature… You have to be prepared for that. Please be ready that you will not be able to swim on your beach, ocean is not calm at all, waves a pretty huge and quite dangerous. But if you will take tuk-tuk (300 LKR one way), driver can bring you to Cactus Lounge beach, and you can spend the whole day there, with calm and peaceful ocean, sun beds and delicious food. There are millions of restaurants on Tangalle Beach Road (the nearest restaurant is located next door, about 20 meters away from the hut. But the food is not good there, so I recommend to take a walk and try other restaurants, take a 30 minutes calm walk along the beach or the road). Small shop is available in the village (30 minutes walk). Important thing – house internet is extremely slow. I recommend you to buy Mobitel SIM (4G) in the airport. In conclusion I’d like to say – if you want to escape from urban world with it’s fussiness, nervosity and hubbub – get a ticket to Colombo, and stay in Anke’s bungalow. It’s an ideal retreat. Highly recommend you a host and the house.”

“This is a wonderful place to stay in Sri Lanka! We have traveled a lot of houses and hotels but never met such purity. It is very nice, since it is not peculiar to the local people) Although the usefulness can not swim because of the waves and the coral, there is a very good place in the form of swimming pools in the coral, which is wonderful for swimming with young children and basic snorkelling. The sea in the area blue m clean - in contrast to the West Coast where they are green. And one of the most enjoyable advantages - big long sandy beach, where you can meet mostly Europeans (and not Sri Lankans are at the other beaches are circling like annoying flies constantly offering something and making your stay unbearable). Carolina wonderful partner in terms of recreation - always prompt, polite, tactful and executive!”
