A great place to wind down to after a long day of kite-surfing on Kalpitiya Lagoon.
The price is for the entire cabin and there are two cabins available.
Built specifically for guests in a nice, open space below the palm trees, Nelson's consists of two separate cabins, each with a private bathroom and a kitchen. There's place to sit outside to read a book. Ideal for longern stays (which are more economical) Nelson's is also available for short-term stays.
Located at about 150 metres from the beach, 4 kilometres from the lagoon and 7 from the town, you're a hop and a step away from everything you need here.
Interaction with guests
Nelson, a fisherman, has invested his life savings in this place, in hopes of riding the tourism wave along with the surfers. He's done well, we think. Together with his wife he lives in a separate home nearby. Almost every day he goes fishing. If you ask him, he'll bring you the day's catch, which might include a nice fat lobster if you're lucky.

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.
