The Space

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 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. 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, 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 had an amazing time at Belinda's place! First, her communication and help with helping to coordinate our arrival was extraordinary. Although she doesn't live there, she has people in Sri Lanka who helped up get from the airport to her listing. Once we arrived we were a bit hesitant, not realizing that it was what I would call an "open air" concept like something you might find in Costa Rica. It's a bit rustic in that sense, but if you can't handle a few bugs then you shouldn't be traveling to Sri Lanka in the first place. Her place is kept by the neighbors, Kumara and Chamila, who will cook for you for a VERY small fee. We had them cook for us (a group of 9) every single day. They are FABulous cooks and hosts, using herbs from the yard to cook the most amazing curries! Our group grew so close to them that many tears were shed when we left... If you want to 'Live like a local" in Sri Lanka, this is the place!

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!
