Shrinith is a great guy with a lovely wife and family. He left a wedding to welcome us and arrived in his tuktuk wearing a suit. He insisted that his wife cook us dinner the first night and took us to the supermarket and the market in his tuktuk. The next evening he showed us the memorials and museum associated with the 2004 tsunami. It was very special sharing them with someone who had experienced the tsunami. The visit to Mrs Shrinth's Preschool was special.

Perfect house, great location and beautiful beach - the best choice we could did! We were group of six people (all friends) and we had a very beautiful stay here. Close to the beach - nobody there = just for us!, few minutes by bus to the centre of Hikaduwa, where is lots of restaurants, shops and possibilities to do wattesports or manage trips to other locations. House was very clean and spacious with hot watter and furnished kitchen. Shrinith was very helpful, he gave us a lot of information about the location and advices, how to get to other places - what we can use, how to be careful. Next to the house is an preschool and primary school - which started around 8am. It can be a little bit noisy, but who want to sleep until lunch on holiday? :) When we come again, we will definitely come back to the Shrinit´h house.

As a family of six with children between 4 and 12, the Shoba house was a perfect fit for us. The most wonderful beach of Dodonduwa just on the other side of the street was never crowded, just a few other tourists, some locals and of course the lovely fishermen, who invited us on a boat trip. The house itself, yard (playground included), and kitchen were clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The most special thing about this place though might be the host. Shrinith and his family (who stay next door and run a preschool) will make you feel very welcome and care for you. Shrinith took us to a lot of places of interest (turtle farm, Buddha shrines, Tsunami memorial places and museum, local craft studio ) in his TukTuk. Dodonduwa is a nice little town just outside the very touristy Hikkaduwa. So, all the restaurants, gift shops are a 10 min TukTuk - ride away, but in Dodonduwa you can still experience authentic life.

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.
