A quiet spot to hang out with a group and explore Mannar Island. Price is per double room with attached bathroom and there are ten rooms available.

The space
Lawrence’s is a big place. Spread over 3 acres, it offers ten double rooms and two family rooms, each with private bathroom. There’s a big, common living room, a dining area and a garden full of fruit trees. When we were there we bumped into a calf that was munching on some mangoes, we saw guineafowls and many pigeons. A nice natural feel this place has.

Mannar, Northern Province, Sri Lanka

Those to search for Mannar on travel website wikitravel will find… nothing. Cool. That's a Neverbeen location for you right there. Sure, Mannar is not a reason to fly to Sri Lanka, but it sure is worth a visit if you like a trip off the beaten path. Sri Lanka's bridgehead of the Adam's Bridge, a sand bank that connects India and Sri Lanka, Mannar was accessible by foot from India until a storm washed away parts of the bank a few hundred years ago. Famous for it's mules, Baobab trees, pearl fishing and remnants of early Portuguese and Dutch occupation, Mannar offers a good mix of cultural and natural highlights to spend a good few days. Do not expect luxury tourism options though, as this region was occupied by the LTTE until 2009 has only been opened up to tourists a few years ago. So it's all yours.

When we visited Mannar was going through one of the worst floods in decades. We'll never forget the sight of that village in the distance, all it's pink houses rising straight out of the water...

Lawrence's villa itself is located in Thoddaveli, some 8 kilometres North of Mannar town. Mannar Lagoon, the Railway station and Keeri beach are all a short drive away.

From 2014, Neverbeen offers a wide variety of rare homes off the beaten track, from fisherman's huts and tree houses to heritage homes and tea estates. Our team hand-picks and visits every home and meet all hosts to make ensure guests have a positively memorable stay in places they've never been. We provide travellers and home owners in challenging locations with access to one another, by offering communication services, online marketing services and tourism training, so that locals can make a living off their home and travellers can get to stay in places they have never been. As such, Neverbeen works for a world in which everyone has the chance to earn income by renting out their home, regardless of language, internet access and tourism experience. In Sri Lanka, Javid works out Neverbeen growth plans and manages our growing group of homes in cooperation with our scouts, while Corina creates listings and Dishan provides service. Our team of in-house programmers is constantly developing the platform itself. The first country we're active in is Sri Lanka, a beautiful country with many undiscovered places to stay. Having opened up to tourism after decades of conflict, it is a great place to start and pilot the Neverbeen concept. Having recognized for highest standards of service levels to guests and hosts alike, we plan to extend our Neverbeen portfolio and offerings from Homes to Experiences throughout Sri Lanka by the end of 2018. Please contact us if you have any questions.
