This is my parents' family home, which have recently splitinto two. We use one half as a holiday home for you and us, returning frequently to enjoy our time in Jaffna. The other half houses a local Reverend, who will be available to help get you settled in. He does some fantastic outreach work in Sri Lanka - I'd recommend having a chat with him about his community service, it's quite amazing. And, his wife would love to cook for you!

The space
Our family have own acres of land here, going back hundreds of years. My grandmother designed and built this bungalow on her land for my mum in the 70s.

We've only recently split the bungalow into two and renovated this half. As it has been newly renovated, it is looking quite bare. We will be returning to put some old photos, artwork and books around, to make this feel more homely :)
The kitchenette currently only has a sink and kettle.

Guest access
There's a shared entrance and driveway to Father Dixon's half and your private half of the Bungalow.

You have your own entrance to your private living area, kitchen, bedrooms and bathroom.

Other things to note
Regarding Father Dixon's wifes cooking - ask them about costs (as it might vary depending on what is freshly available, and what you want).
I would really recommend having at least one of their home-cooked meals!

Ceiling fans are available in bedroom 2 and the living room. Bedroom 1 (with the larger bed) has a free-standing fan

Jaffna, Northern Province, Sri Lanka

There's a lot of history in the local area. The infamous Four Four Bravo took place just in-front of the house in 1983.
Thirunelvely Market, which is a 5 minute walk away, is a very famous market for its fresh produce. The whole area is famous for having great farming soil.
