Price is for a double room with attached bathroom, with optional A/C. There're three rooms available.

The space

Jayathunga’s is the upstairs part of a big nice house that is surrounded with breadfruit and coconut trees. These give a natural, cooling shade, as well as coconuts to drink or to cook with. The rooms are spacious and light and the large shaded terrace is great to have meals or read a book in the evenings.

Interaction with guests

Jaya, a hotel chef, and his wife have two kids. Both work in tourism and speak some English as well as German. They will cook up some serious Sri Lankan curries if you ask.

We were actually taken to the host's brother's house which was just down the road. The room was lovely - very new and clean. We took our dinner and breakfast there for an additional cost, the food was brilliant but perhaps a little expensive without warning... All in all a very good stay. The family was very friendly.

I stayed in Jaya's place for 2 night. The place is charming with a nice outside garden. I stayed in the upper floor with a big balcony area where you can relax. It's 10 min walk to a beautiful beach and 20 min walk to town center. My room is very clean and modern. It has AC and it includes a double bed, a closet, a dresser, clothe hanger and a frig. Attached to it a clean bathroom with hot water. Breakfast is delicious and it served in your balcony. Small restaurants near by but the best is Malli's seafood ;) I met Jaya's wife and his 2 boys, nice family. I definitely recommend this lovely Airbnb In Bentota. It's very relaxing place, the host family are kind and the location is great.

Jayathunga and his wife are lovely and very freindly hosts! They will organize tours and transportation - basically anything you need. The room was very comfortable, has a warm shower, a fridge and fullfills western standards. For a small charge you can have an overwhelming breakfast! The very long and quiet beach is in only 5min walking distance and the next bigger city (Aluthgama) can be reached by tuktuk in 5min. We had a wonderful stay and a remarkable experience because we were invited to a family celebration (Almsgiving). We can only recommend staying with this lovely family!

This was the best place we stayed in sri lanka: the host family was very helpful with all quedtions we had, organized a tuc tuc driver etc. The room is clean and spacious and has a terrace and even a refrigerator! The breakfast is very complete- the best we had in all our trip! We also has a sri lankan dinner one night which was delicious. We can pnly recommend to choose this place if you are looking for somethinh local and quiet close to the beach of bendota.

Neverbeen User Profile

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.
