The best guesthouse we have been in Srilanka! We extend our stay to other 7 days! We book the room upstair with separate entrance and kictchen. Kictchen was empty and we ask Tharanga to provide us with stuff to use kictchen, he understand the situation and was very helpful providing everything we need without spend more money. Room is clean and big, bed is comfy (Yessss!), wifi is super fast with nice working station so is great accomodation for digital nomads! There is a lovely jungle view which make you feel relax from first moment when you wake up! The accomodation is inside a little road at the end of Arugam Bay but based on how small is the city, everything is in walking distance. We were able to do all our stuff by walk. i would definetely recomand this place to our friends.

We had a very nice stay at the House! We have had a private restroom,free WiFi and a ventilator. It's just 5m walk to the Beach/main street. The host is pleasant and helps you if you ask anything.

We had a great stay in this accommodation. The owner was very nice and tried to make us our stay as comfortable as possible. The beach is maybe 5 min by walk and the restaurants also. So we can really recommend this room.

Very handy if you want to surf the main point at A-bay. Only a couple of minutes walk to the beach then another 5 minutes walk to the point. Also close to the main restaurant strip without being right in it. The room was functional and the kitchen with full size fridge shared between the two rooms was great. Not many places have this in A-bay. Tharanga was polite and helpful.

The host made us feel right at home arranging a fishing trip, finding a chef to prepare our catch and regularly gave us very helpful advice on where to eat and even guided us to look for elephants and crocodiles in the nearby nature reserve.

L'hôte est sympathique et discret. situé à 5 minutes de la plage et du point de surf principal et 5 minutes du centre ville dans un endroit calme. La chambre est spartiate et pas insonorisé du tout. (heureusement nos voisins étaient discrets et on espère l'avoir été aussi). Pas de repas possible à la guesthouse cependant un frigo est disponible ainsi qu'une petite cuisine. On trouve ça chère pour ce que c'est malheureusement les prix d'Arugam Bay affichent facilement le double ou le triple comparé au reste du pays. On recommande pour les budgets serrés mais pour quelques nuits seulement.

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.
