The Space

Large bedroom with 4 poster bed, very airy and plenty of windows in main part of colonial house - plus adjacent twin room with shared bathroom.
Dragon Fly house is located just ten 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 or just basking on the beach in the Sri Lankan sunshine! 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. They will happily arrange for you a relaxing Ayurvedic massage, fishing trips, diving trips, BBQs, lagoon safaris as well as Hikkaduwa area and Sri Lanka-wide tours. Kumara has his own tuk tuk so there is no need to walk any where if the weather is too hot. The House has four spacious double bedrooms, and one single room, three fully fitted bathrooms, there is hot and cold water through-out, there is an outdoor shower, and a large kitchen. The dining area, which is outside on the verandah seats at least 12 comfortably. On the open veranda you can hang the 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. The house was renovated two years ago to a high standard including details such as a water purification system.

  • Belinda was the perfect host with the perfect place! Absolutely welcoming, she gave us all informations and recommondations we were looking for and we had here the best starting point for our trip through Sri Lanka we could hoped for! The house is like a second home. The rooms are very nice furnitured, the garden and the "dining room" outside under a roof is totally comfortable - everything is perfectly relaxed. The house is around 15min to walk away from the beach but you will definitely appreciate the opportunity to get a little insight into the areas away from the busy and touristic main street when you walk the different ways through the back country - we enjoyed it every single day - the neighbourhood is like a walk through a beautiful inhabited jungle! We've been there for 5 days and it was the best to get acclimatized! The beach by the way is absolutely stunning in Dodanduwa. At least in march you have parts of the endless and very clean beach almost on your own and if you are not that much into bigger hotels and many people (what Hikkaduwa is more of that) you will have the perfect spot just around the corner! We totally recommend Belinda's place! Thank you so much Belinda. We hope very much to come back!!

  • Belinda's house is in a very peaceful and quiet little neighborhood in Hikkadua. It will cost about 1000 lkr for a tuk tuk from Galle. The beach is a short walk from the house, and a cheap tuk tuk taxi to the main town area. The room is basic but comfortable and very clean. Belinda is a lovely and very warm and generous host. Though she was busy during the period of our stay, she took the time to graciously attend to us and give us suggestions of things to see and do. I would recommend this place for someone wanting a quiet retreat by the coast in a welcoming house.

About
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 (email hidden) 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!
