The space

Large bedroom with 4 poster bed, in main part of colonial house - plus adjacent twin room with shared bathroom.
Dragon Fly house is located just fifteen minutes walk from the beach at Thiranagama, just south of the popular Sri Lankan resort of Hikkaduwa, in the South West of Sri Lanka. It provides you with a very comfortable base from where to enjoy everything that the area has to offer, such as surfing, diving, snorkeling, fishing, practice YOGA, or just basking on the beach in the Sri Lankan sunshine! Ask me about AYURVEDA TREATMENTS! After watching the last of the sun dip down into the Indian Ocean, relax around an open fire with a seafood BBQ or take a stroll along the beach and sample some Hikkaduwa nightlife. Maybe youll be lucky enough to see local fishermen hauling in their catch, or later on at night, a turtle coming ashore to lay her eggs! Enjoy all the advantages that come with renting your own holiday villa in Hikkaduwa and take everything at your own pace. For the duration of your holiday in Hikkaduwa, Chamila and Kumara will be on hand to attend to your every need. If you need any additional information or wish to go on any trips, Chandana, our local friend, will happily arrange for your airport transfers, a relaxing Ayurvedic massage, fishing trips, diving trips, BBQs, lagoon safaris as well as Hikkaduwa area and Sri Lanka-wide tours. He has a tuk tuk and together with Kumara, who also has his own tuk tuk , there is no need to walk any where if the weather is too hot. The House has four spacious double bedrooms, one single room and a room undercthe trees. There are four bathrooms, two of which are outdoor. There is hot and cold water through-out, and a large kitchen. The dining area, which is outside on the verandah seats at least 14 comfortably. On the open veranda you can longe on a day bed, practice yoga or use a hammock. The beautiful mature garden has many fruit plants, banana, mango, papaya, coconut and more. Each of the beds and chairs are professionally cut and hand carved from timber grown in the village. It really is the Ideal holiday home close to the beach yet away from the busy coastal area. Located in a residential part of Kumara Kanda this charming property is ideal for outside dining or lounging whilst observing the flora and fauna of this property’s very own jungle! Take a 15 minute walk to the beach or hire a scooter and go for long rides inland and discover tea plantations and lazy buffalos lying in the mud.

Interaction with guests

I will be at hand if you want me to be. I love cooking. There are a selection of meals on offer, ranging from delicious home made guacamole, to jerk chicken and all kinds of salads and wraps. Lets have a barbecue! Ask me about things to do and places to go. I can take you to some very lovely off the beaten track gems. Talking of gems: Sri Lanka is the land of Moonstones and Blue Saphires. Dont just buy them off the high street!
I'll be out of your way if you want the privacy. Want sri lankan food? Kumara is the man! With Chamila, his wife, let them spoil you with the best home made Sri Lankan food. There is nowhere where you will taste better freshly prepared food.

House Rules
Check out by 12PM (noon)

Not too many.....please do not take the towels out of the house.
When in Asia use a sarong on the beach - it dries quicker and a towel becomes cumbersome.
The kitchen is for general use, so please keep it tidy and clean.
Same with the terrace and communal areas - be kind to your environment and smile a lot!!

It's good to have Matara to pick us to the house. Thank you! But also a little far from the beach and main street.

Belinda House is a beautiful place in a wild ambient that would take u out of the reality for a while. Close to many interesting things to do, and with a local neighbor (Kumara) that will drive u anywhere u want, or cook the best traditional food ever. Take a shower in the outdoor or dinner in the porche is also unique. Hikkaduwa is cheap and very welcoming. Recommendable 100%

Unforunately, we didn't meet Belllimoo because she was on trip. But, Kumara is really helpful. I really enjoy spicy garden, very nice, and you can see animals, such as monkey etc. sometimes. It takes 15 mins to walk to beach.

Belinda's is a wonderful host and her place is lovely! We were a group of three traveling for our first time in Sri Lanka, and she was a great person to help us get started and organized. Her home is beautiful, with a beautiful garden and outdoor terrace/dining area with space for relaxing, practicing yoga, reading, etc. The house is located close to the beach, a cheap tuktuk ride, or about a 20 minute walk. When we were there Belinda organized a big barbeque with grilled fish and amazing sides. There were a few other guests staying with Belinda at the time, as well as a few other friends of hers, so it was a great time sharing stories, and getting ideas for other travel. Belinda is wonderful at creating community and sharing her love of Sri Lanka and Hikkadua with her guests.

Despita Belinda and family were not there, they were on holidays, she managed to allow us to have a easy arrival. She send us as well super-nice recomendations about what to do on the area wich allowed us to enjoy the 3 days we stayed there a lot. The room and the kitchen are clean big and nice. Some renovations would be needed, but then the price should grow. Value for money is really good. The common areas is even better than the room. Nice table outside to have nicer dinners. By the way the neighbourhgs were amazing, the help us with the tuk tuk, they arrange all our meals, and that help us a lot as travelling with kids to have dinner at home is always nice. Nice place for your final stop in srilanka before going to the airport (2h by car early in the morning).

Oh como me alegro que hayais ido a todos los sitios que os recomendé!! Las renovaciones las voy haciendo cada año, poco a poco, pero gracias por mencionarlo. Vivir en la jungla significa es como vivir junto al mar, hay muchas cosas que cada año se deterioran, gracias a los animales, las lluvias, etc... es un trabajo constante. Normalmente Chamila y Kumara preparan el desayuno , si el cliente lo pide. Igual si habeis dicho que lo podéis hacer vosotros, no han querido interferir, y de ahi que no hubiese mas comida .... lo siento, intento que hay siempre desayuno y mejor todavía cuando lo preparamos nosotros, ya que lo hacemos con mucho amor y esta muy rico. Espero que volvais y así poderos dar aun mas!!!

Belinda was a very welcoming and laid back host. We had a lot of freedom to do as we wished and she was most accommodating. Also, Kumara and Chamila, who help run the house, couldn't have been more friendly. Kumara is a great cook - so I recommend eating a lot of your meals at home.

Having had a very busy life - now starting to call down a bit..... sort of.
I have four grown up kids who have taken over my life for a long time - and I have been running a busy production company in Spain for many years.
My favourite pass-times are traveling and food. When at my place you will eat well, for sure.
I want to make it special when you come and stay - I appreciate constructive criticism .
I love quirky people - love sudden spurts of madness and letting my hair down, but am quite calm and responsible most of the time . If there is a live concert it will take me out and i will probably be the last one home, but otherwise I don't go out much.
I am one to mix in with the locals and love the local food and markets - will spend hours chatting and finding out more - I help a charity in Hikkaduwa called Manacare - they do great things - I just give them my love and help a little if i can.
I love to read - real life experiences - travel books - all about Asia.
I am a bit of an artist and love all form of art - from photography, to painting , though fabric design and interior design and recently have been making 'mandalas' which I find very therapeutic.
My motto: smile and be happy and dont interfere in how others lead their lives - we are all different!
