The SpaceLow cost because this is my start with a most basic accommodation which still needs improvements (primitive) and which is now under development. But the location is already very good if you are not looking for tourist crowds and loud beach parties. It's all about location here ! Lonely Sand Beach with Ocean Access at 50m behind our garden and a large river on the landside doorstep at 10 m with little boats and fishing. NO ANNOYING ROAD TRAFFIC and very quiet at night, Supermarket at 250m. Main Matara Bus Stand at 600m with busses waiting in line ready to go all day and part of the night. (Easy to get a seat!). A genuine 17th century Dutch "East India Company" Fort at only 400m. (The very little sister of the better known " Galle Fort"). Actually we are inside this Fort at the very end towards the sea and river junction. 400m from the old stone gate and the fortress walls. Everything here including the city center of Matara is at a walking distance but we are not disturbed by the noise. The pictures I show on my page show what you get. Guest AccessGuests can use their room and reach the "bathroom" (which is just a shower tab under the sky connected to public water supply) and the WC which is a porcelain basin connected to a canalization. Flush with water bucket only. Interaction with GuestsDepending on the season and on the guests expectations the place can be either free and used by the guest only, or used by third parties.If you want meals served, daily cooking can be done for extra charge. The NeighborhoodA lonely beach stretching at least 500 m along the Indian Ocean lined with coconut trees, reachable at 50m from your room through our garden with no road in between and the expected unspoiled scenery to make your holiday snapshots. A tropical river with classic low profile outrigger fishing boats right in front at your doorstep on the landside of the property. No excessive noise of waves and ocean activity. An island visible at 100m on the river, hosting every evening thousands of wild white birds making a special concert prior to the night. If you are a birdwatcher this is a place for you. We are situated at the tip of the Matara Fort Half Island used as a Bastion by the Dutch Spice Trader during the 17th and 18th century. We enjoy the proximity of these historical fortifications separating our area from the also interesting buzzing modern city with everything to buy at a walking distance inside and outside our little Fort. Without suffering from the transit, motor traffic, crowds and everything which spoils a peaceful day. If you need to shop during night hours, several stores remain open 24/7/7 at the Main Bus Stand. Train Station Matara easy to reach in the city by threewheeler. (Approx. 2km). The modern airconditioned "Airport Bus" is departing every day from the Matara Bus Stand to the Colombo Airport at: 8.00 and 14.20. Ticket price: 651 Rupees. Getting AroundVery easy to get here! The house is located at 600m walking distance from the Matara Main Bus Stand (Terminal). Connections to all the island including the Expressway. Matara Railway Station in town at 2km approximately. Instead of catching a bus on a road side stop, usually crowded with passengers and no free seats available, you will be able at the Matara Bus Stand to just chose an empty bus waiting there in line and leaving every 20 min to all main cities. The Express Way busses using the highway between Matara and Colombo all start from this bus stand, too. Train Station Matara easy to reach in the city by threewheeler. (Approx. 2km). The modern airconditioned white "Airport Bus" is departing every day from the Matara Bus Stand to the Colombo Airport at: 8.00 and 14.20. Ticket price: 651 Rupees. You need to look out for it...since this white bus has only a very little sticker "Airport " on the front side wind shield and another small blue sign "Negombo-Matara" below . Phone of the Airport Bus : +(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) Other Things to NoteI am starting my project and my house is now a bit primitive. But we work on improving this place. We have a charming location and already work on the rest. If you want to rent the house long term the good idea is to buy a few things like a new matrass to make your life very comfortable.
