The place is colorful and mostly very clean. Only the indoor bathroom is a little outdated. Mr. Kumars son is very friendly, speaks close to perfect English and is ready to help with anything.

That's a blue nice villa with a big yard. Three rooms with one air conditioner which cost 500 rs one night. But it's ok with fans open at night. And the locations not really good cuz you can't see the ocean from villa. But at least you can go to the Main Street within one minute.

kumar's house is a very comfortable place to stay. perfect for a family or group. the neighbourhood is quiet and close enough to town to walk if necessary. the beach is not too far and as it is just off the north coast road other beaches are acessible by tuk tuk or bus. beds very comfortable which is always nice.

A colourful house at the end of a short track populated by dogs and the odd cow, off the main road from Trinco to Nilaveli. It’s a nice new house, three good bedrooms, big kitchen and a great new big shower room outside. The kitchen lacked a few basics (a toaster, some eating knives etc) but has a good fridge and cooker if you need it. Only one bedroom has aircon and we were charged extra (500ru/night) for using it. We found the house quite hot but this may have been because we had the windows closed against mozzies at night. You might need to ask for towels and anti Mozzie protectors if they are not put out. Generally quiet but got blasted with music by the temple near by a few times. There are basic shops a few minutes away on the main road and Trincomalee centre is five minutes by tuk tuk (100-150 ru) The beach opposite the house is more of a fishing beach protected by a strip of shanty houses but there are lovely beaches (and masses of cheap restaurants) at Uppaveli beach a few km away (tuk tuk 200ru) . Nilaveli beach (for Pigeon island)is even more deserted and about 12km away (800ru). Mr Kumar and his son are very friendly and helpful if you need anything. A great place to stay if you want to throw yourself into a real Sri Lankan home and explore the area around Trincomalee.

We had a lovely time in Kumars home, feeling part of Trincomalee. we could go to the little shops at the main street to get Some breakfast and enjoyed sitting on the patio. Kumar and his son were very helpful and even organized a Dolphin Tour for us.

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.
