The SpaceIt's a nice place, Anne's. Nothing fancy, but a well-kept, medium sized house with two rooms, a bathroom (with hot water!), a living room and a kitchen for you to use. A nice, simple and clean, ideally suited use as a home base while kitesurfing with a small group.
Anne's, located in a quiet neighbourhood, is very close to Kalpitiya town, 1.5 kilometres from the lagoon and about 3 kilometres from the Kankakuliya beach. Holland Church is nearby and if you get permission you can visit the old Dutch Fort. Interaction with GuestsMs. Anne , your host, lives in separate spaces in the same house, together with her two children. She's lived abroad for a long time and has p[icked up many languages (English, Hebrew, Hindi and even a little Arabic) and culinary skills (local, western) along the way. Anne's brother owns a boat and can take you for dolphin watching trips and many other things. The Neighborhood"We're going to Kalpitiya!" Mo shouted through the phone in excitement.
One quick look at the map and it becomes clear why Kalpitiya is such a hot spot. Large, shallow lagoon on the one side, beach and sea on the other, small town and peninsula in the middle. Constantly windy, warm weather, friendly people, affordable and relatively undiscovered still, it quickly becomes clear why Kalpitiya is bound to become one of the world's favourite kite-surf spots. But there's more to Kalpitiya than surfing. Its 14 islands and lagoons form a diverse marine sanctuary with bar reefs, saltpans, mangrove swamps and vast sand dune beaches, making it a nursing grounds for many species of crustaceans and fish. The coastal waters are home to a variety of dolphins, whales, sea turtles, and even the illusive dugong.
All I could do was shout back: "I'm coming too!!"
