The SpaceThe house is located in Paalameenmadu, a quiet neighborhood in Batticaloa and a very nice place to be. Located near the Lighthouse area, guests can take boatrides across the lagoon, visit the small fishmarket in the morning and see (and hear!) the many birds around the house throughout the day. The house itself was entirely wiped out by the Boxing Day Tsunami, but was recently rebuilt. So recently, in fact, that it is fair to say that the finishing touches still have to be done (but we're not talking about the Hitlon anyway, so who cares). It's a nice, two-story house that towers over the much smaller houses in the neighborhood. The bedrooms share a bathroom per floor, and downstairs there's a living room, a dining room, a kitchen and a place to park cars. And, much like a cherry on top, the rooftop terrace provides a great place to relax and enjoy the sun(set). Interaction with GuestsMr. Thambirajah, the owner of this home, was born in Batticaloa but now lives in Europe. It is Mr. Selvaraja (see photo) who will welcome and take care of you. He speaks a bit of English and can arrange food, transport and even some local activities, such as a boat ride through the lagoon. In case you get stuck in translation you can always call us. The NeighborhoodIf any town in Sri Lanka can call itself 'Lagoon Town' it's Batticaloa, or 'Batti' as the locals call it. Believed to be founded by the ancient Vedda people and subsequently colonized by the Portuguese, Dutch and English, Batti has tons of history, paired with an abundance of natural beauty and things to do. The reason why Batti isn't visited much is because it's quite a trip to get there, it's was one of the main hotspots during the decades-long conflict and it was one of the places hardest hit by the Boxing Day Tsunami. A true Neverbeen location...

The SpaceWe love this house and think of it as our home when we're in Batti. Built by the administrators of the 17th century Dutch Fort, it has conserved that old atmosphere almost perfectly ever since. If you squint your eyes and look through one the the iron-barred windows, you'll see what we mean. Like going back in time. It's for the huge verandah that this house should be known. it's arguably the best in town. the fishermen cast their nets from their canoes by the old Dutch Fort across the water. Legend goes that this is where the Singing Fish can be heard, a phenomenon that was recorded on tape in the fifties, but then the tapes were lost under mysterious circumstances.. Ask us about availability on private room basis. Guest AccessThe house has four rooms. One room has a double bed and two others have twin beds. The fourth room has a large desk and an antique single bed. There are two bathrooms (one en-suite) with hot showers. The house has complimentary wi-fi. Experience traditional Batticaloa food with a focus on local ingredients: be it prawns and crabs from the lagoon opposite, freshly caught fish from the Bay of Bengal, vegetables from home gardens and rice from the vast fields in the district. Interaction with GuestsIt is Mr. Ranjan who runs this home. He lives next to the house, together with the cook. Both have always been very welcoming to us and we’re sure they will take good care of you too, despite their limited English proficiency. They are happy make you home-cooked dishes, whether it’s for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We recommend their ladyfinger curry and freshly made lemon juice! The NeighborhoodTravelling to ‘Lagoon town’ Batticaloa, or 'Batti' as the locals call it, on the undiscovered east coast is like travelling back in time. Batticaloa's distant and more recent history have been tumultuous to say the least. Batti's been inhabited for thousands of years they say, but back in the 17th century the Portuguese came, then got kicked out by the Dutch, who, in turn, got booted by the English, but not before leaving Batticaloa with it's sturdy old Fort and the old colonial house you're going to stay in. More recently, Batticaloa was a Tamil Tiger stronghold, a dramatic situation that ended in 2009, after which an era of recovery started for Batti. It's really a special place to roam about in and we love coming here for the combination of culture, natural beauty and the people. Getting AroundBatticaloa Railway station is 2 km from 15LMD.

    The SpaceThe rooms are situated in a flowered yard, created by Mary and her children with passion at heart. They have an attached bathroom. The A/C room is has no window, and can accommodate 2 people, in a double bed (4 ft x 6.5 ft). The other room is non A/C and can accommodate 2 to 3 persons. There is one double bed (4 ft x 6.5 ft) and if needed, a single bed (3 ft x 6 ft) is added. The family lives in the other rooms and a separate small unit in the same compound. Guest AccessGuests can chill out in the flowered yard, or put a chair on the roof during the cool hours of the day. There is a tiny TV room where the family usually meets, and where guests are also welcome. Interaction with GuestsMary is usually around, as well as 3 of her 6 children. They will definitely look after the guests' needs, and prepare tasty homemade food on request. The NeighborhoodThe Indian Ocean is just 300 meters away... The lagoon is also closeby... The village is a peaceful place to be, though close to Batticaloa town (20mn by walk). We'll also be able to keep you busy and joyful with a variety of activities organized by East N' West on Board, such as bicycle rides, cooking classes, fishing classes on the lagoon, tours in rural villages, etc. Getting AroundThe homestay can be reached within 10 mn with a 3-wheeler from Batticaloa town. There is enough space to park a vehicle inside the compound. Other Things to NoteThere is a water filter that filters and chlorinates the water, so it is perfectly safe for you to drink it. You can ask Mary to put your bottles in the fridge so that anytime, you can get safe and cool drinking water. We encourage the guests to refill their bottles and drink this water, to save money, and the environment... Gentle reminder: what you are about to book is a homestay, not a guesthouse or a hotel. Please stay with us for the right reasons! Our hosts, who are carefully selected by our field team, are newly introduced to the hospitality sector. They are simply beautiful human beings having this “something special” that makes us believe that you will enjoy sharing a moment of their lives. To be accommodated by a local family is a unique experience. Families welcome you at their home, which enable you to grasp a bit of the local lifestyle, but which also bears limitations. Please read carefully the description of the facilities and understand what you plan to book. Local houses generally have rooms that are quite small, which is adapted to the local families’ lives, but might be uncomfortable for guests coming from wealthier contexts. Therefore if you need large rooms, luxury beds or hot water and this is obviously not described in the listing, we do encourage you to find a place which is more convenient for your material needs, rather than booking one of our homestays with expectations that cannot be met in a family home and ending up dissatisfied.

      The SpaceThe house is located in Paalameenmadu, a quiet neighborhood in Batticaloa and a very nice place to be. Located near the Lighthouse area, guests can take boatrides across the lagoon, visit the small fishmarket in the morning and see (and hear!) the many birds around the house throughout the day. The house itself was entirely wiped out by the Boxing Day Tsunami, but was recently rebuilt. So recently, in fact, that it is fair to say that the finishing touches still have to be done (but we're not talking about the Hitlon anyway, so who cares). It's a nice, two-story house that towers over the much smaller houses in the neighborhood. The bedrooms share a bathroom per floor, and downstairs there's a living room, a dining room, a kitchen and a place to park cars. And, much like a cherry on top, the rooftop terrace provides a great place to relax and enjoy the sun(set). Interaction with GuestsMr. Thambirajah, the owner of this home, was born in Batticaloa but now lives in Europe. It is Mr. Selvaraja (see photo) who will welcome and take care of you. He speaks a bit of English and can arrange food, transport and even some local activities, such as a boat ride through the lagoon. In case you get stuck in translation you can always call us. The NeighborhoodIf any town in Sri Lanka can call itself 'Lagoon Town' it's Batticaloa, or 'Batti' as the locals call it. Believed to be founded by the ancient Vedda people and subsequently colonized by the Portuguese, Dutch and English, Batti has tons of history, paired with an abundance of natural beauty and things to do. The reason why Batti isn't visited much is because it's quite a trip to get there, it's was one of the main hotspots during the decades-long conflict and it was one of the places hardest hit by the Boxing Day Tsunami. A true Neverbeen location...

Built by the administrators of the 17th century Dutch Fort, it has conserved that old atmosphere almost perfectly ever since. If you squint your eyes and look through one the the iron-barred windows, you'll see what we mean. Like going back in time. It's for the huge verandah that this house should be known. it's arguably the best in town. the fishermen cast their nets from their canoes by the old Dutch Fort across the water. Legend goes that this is where the Singing Fish can be heard, a phenomenon that was recorded on tape in the fifties, but then the tapes were lost under mysterious circumstances... Interaction with GuestsIt is Mr. Ranjan who runs this home. He lives next to the house, together with the cook. Both have always been very welcoming to us and we're sure they will take good care of you too, despite their limited English proficiency. They are happy make you home-cooked dishes, whether it's for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We recommend their ladyfinger curry and freshly made lemon juice! The NeighborhoodTravelling to ‘Lagoon town' Batticaloa, or 'Batti' as the locals call it, on the undiscovered east coast is like travelling back in time. Batticaloa's distant and more recent history have been tumultuous to say the least. Batti's been inhabited for thousands of years they say, but back in the 17th century the Portuguese came, then got kicked out by the Dutch, who, in turn, got booted by the English, but not before leaving Batticaloa with it's sturdy old Fort and the old colonial house you're going to stay in. More recently, Batticaloa was a Tamil Tiger stronghold, a dramatic situation that ended in 2009, after which an era of recovery started for Batti. It's really a special place to roam about in and we love coming here for the combination of culture, natural beauty and the people.

        The SpaceLagoon or Sea? You'll have both within 200 meters when staying at Appa's Breezy Homestay... The bungalow is in a compound where Appa (meaning father in Tamil) also lives in a separate house. Guest AccessThe bungalow features a hall with wooden furniture (sofa set, almyrah, table and chairs). Natural ventilation and sea breeze keep the place relatively cool, and a standing fan is available for the guests' comfort. A small kitchen is equipped with basic cutlery/cookery, a fridge and gas cooker. A water filter allows you to filter and chlorinate the water, thanks to use it to purify the water and save your money and the environment by avoiding buying plastic bottles. 2 rooms are available for the guests, one upstairs with balcony, one downstairs. If only 2 guests occupy the house, we'll let them enjoy the upstairs room and close the downstairs one. The upstairs room has a queen size bed (5ft x 6.5ft), with a large mosquito net, a bed side lamp, a ceiling fan and a cloth rack. The balcony lets you guess the sea between the trees. The downstairs room has a double bed (4ft x 6ft), with a large mosquito net, a bed side lamp, a ceiling fan and a cloth rack. Bathroom is common for the 2 rooms and is situated outside, under the stars... Western style toilets are available outdoors, attached to the house. Interaction with GuestsAppa lives in the next house, in the same compound, and will, if you wish, show you the local temple or share a meal with you. His level of English is limited, but sufficient to understand each other. In case you would struggle to understand each other, you can reach Eastern Homestay over the phone anytime for translation purposes. The NeighborhoodBetween the sea and the lagoon, the location of Appa's Breezy Homestay is unique and an ideal place for nature lovers. Appa's dogs and a few goats live on the property, as well as plenty of squirrels and birds... The deserted beach is just 200 meters away. The lagoon is also nearby, and you can observe fishermen in the evening, their petrol lamps lighting the lagoon in a beautiful manner. If you move around, you'll be able to see the scars of tsunami, as monuments and ruins remind the tragedy that affected the area in 2004. Batticaloa town is 3 km away, and we'll be happy to rent you some comfortable bicycles for you to explore the area. We'll also be able to keep you busy and joyful with a variety of activities organized by East N' West on Board, such as bicycle rides, cooking classes, fishing classes on the lagoon, tours in rural villages, etc. Getting AroundThere is no bus station really nearby, but it is possible to get 3-wheelers to reach the homestay. Give us a ring before your arrival and we will arrange! We generally prefer our guests to first come to our office (on week-days) so that we can welcome them, give them basic information about Batticaloa and accompany them to the homestay. Please do contact us to arrange your transportation. Other Things to NoteYou can choose to use the kitchen to prepare light meals, or order the food that will be prepared by a lady from the village, on the spot, or at her home and brought to the homestay. Gentle reminder: what you are about to book is a homestay, not a guesthouse or a hotel. Please stay with us for the right reasons! Our hosts, who are carefully selected by our field team, are newly introduced to the hospitality sector. They are simply beautiful human beings having this “something special” that makes us believe that you will enjoy sharing a moment of their lives. To be accommodated by a local family is a unique experience. Families welcome you at their home, which enable you to grasp a bit of the local lifestyle, but which also bears limitations. Please read carefully the description of the facilities and understand what you plan to book. Local houses generally have rooms that are quite small, which is adapted to the local families’ lives, but might be uncomfortable for guests coming from wealthier contexts. Therefore if you need large rooms, luxury beds or hot water and this is obviously not described in the listing, we do encourage you to find a place which is more convenient for your material needs, rather than booking one of our homestays with expectations that cannot be met in a family home and ending up dissatisfied. Thanks for your understanding...

Other Things to NoteThere is a water filter that filters and chlorinates the water, so it is perfectly safe for you to drink it.
