The Space

Large bedroom with 4 poster bed, very airy and plenty of windows. Can be booked individually or together with another room.
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.

  • We spent wonderful time at Belinda's house. Chandana took really good care of us. Chamila is a really good cook and prepares delicious Sri Lankan rice and curry.
    The house itself is decent and clean. You need to be equipped with lot of mosquito repellents but it is nothing surprising as you stay out of town.
    We totally recommend it.

  • Staying at Belinda's after our Sri Lanka tour was a real treat. She is willing to give you directions for an easy reach to her house or arrange for a car to pick you up from the airport. The rooms are lovely, simply and beautifully decorated, with a vintage touch. Everything is clean and well-maintained. Belinda and her family made us feel very welcome, they are relaxed and friendly and try their best to answer all your questions, give you tips and share the "inside information" you wish to know, as a tourist. In the morning, you might have the chance to see playful monkeys in the garden or watch a Komodo dragon leisurely crossing the road. Great place to stay even if you like to head to the beach every day, it's near and you can see on your way palm trees, beautiful houses, rice fields, temples. The food is delicious, you can either eat Sri Lankan dishes or international ones. Based on her own experience, Belinda might recommend you where to hang out, go to the beach, shop, take a massage or visit interesting places. Really recommend!

  • Amazing place.We were also lucky to meet nice and interesting people living there at the same time. Perfect place to relax, we stayed there two weeks and we love it. Very good food prepared by neighbors: Kumara and his wife Chamila. Our two boys (10 and 4 yo) felt also really comfortable. Reasonable distance to the beach.

  • Si quieres un tiempo en la selva, con monos a tu alrededor, arboles gigantes, sacar cocos del patio, compartir con gente de Sri Lanka autentica, relajarte escuchando la lluvia y a solo minutos de la playa, su movimiento y restaurantes, estas en el lugar correcto!
    Disfrutamos mucho nuestra estadia, Belinda es magnifica y compartimos con sus vecinos Kumara y Charmila que prepararon comida tipica para nosotros y junto a Chandara resolveran todas tus dificultades para tus planes en Sri Lanka. Totalmente recomendable!

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!
