Your own room in a well-kept home close to Negombo beach. Price is for a double AC room and there are three triples with AC as well.
Kumari's is a compound with three homes, two of which are available for guests. Each home has two double or triple rooms with attached bathroom, a living room and a well-equipped kitchen. No fancy splendour, but good-looking, functional stuff here. The outside is also nicely done, with mango and palm trees and many flowers.
Interaction with guests
Kumari runs her home together with her husband Sarath and their assistant Kumara. Sarath worked as a chef in one of Negombo's big hotels, which helped them acquire the place 15 years ago and they've been hosting guests ever since. They can arrange food and transportation upon request.
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, Dishan manages our growing group of homes in cooperation with our scouts, while Rohan creates listings and provides service. In Amsterdam, Marten works out international growth plans. Our team of in-house programmers is constantly developing the platform itself and Ernst & Young does our finances.
The first country we're active in is Sri Lanka, a beautiful country with many undiscovered places to stay. Due to it recently having opened up to tourism after decades of conflict, it is a great place to start and pilot the Neverbeen concept. We plan to expand to ten countries before the end of 2017.
