Kusal and his family were so overwhelmingly welcoming! It is a great start/end to your holiday as he can drop you to the airport
He took us to local cinnamon farm, showing us about local trades for making materials for clothes and rubber, then to a moonstone mine and a turtle hatchery. He has lots of knowledge on local life and great to speak to about Sri Lanka. We also had a cooking lesson which was interesting and great fun
They are very accommodating and it’s a great place to stay to experience real life in Sri Lanka.
Him and his wife Chani made us amazing home cooked Sri Lankan food and their home was lovely to stay in. Breakfast was amazing aswell!
It was a lovely homestay with genuine people and made us feel very at home!
Thank you so much! If you’re looking for a personal stay with lots of Sri Lankan traditions please book this one! Couldn’t have been happier
We honestly cannot put in to words how amazing this Homestay was. From the moment we arrived we lived the dream. Nimal had ensured we had safe transport waiting for us at the airport which brought us to his beautiful home. The family are so welcoming, and Chani never stopped smiling! Their kindness was so humbling and their enthusiasm to do everything they can to meet your holiday needs was unbelievable. Nimal was able to take us snorkelling, on a lagoon safari, to a tea plantation, a turtle sanctuary, a moonstone mine, to see the whales and to a rainforest and to see the most amazing wildlife at one of Sri Lanka's most stunning wildlife parks. He is very proud of his culture and this enchanting country and rightfully so. Chani and Nimal prepared fresh local cuisine every day, giving us the opportunity to try the tastiest and healthy meals we will probably ever eat. Their home is really clean and spacious and their garden has exotic fruits, impressive trees and delicate flowers, and delightful wildlife. Our stay in this breathtaking country, at this delightful home, with these gracious, big hearted people has given us memories which we well treasure for a lifetime.
We were given a very warm welcome. As vegetarians, it can be quite difficult to eat well, but Nimal and Chani are wonderful cooks; just as much at ease with local as European cooking styles. This was definitely vegetarian heaven! The room was simple, but comfortable, and the balcony looked out on a lush, green area with mongooses and woodpeckers. Dordandua is a small fishing port, not a big tourist destination, but it was a very short walk to the beach where we watched the boats going out to fish, and where there were lots of rock pools to explore at low tide.
J'ai passé 4 jours chez Chani et Nimal. L'accueil était au top: Chani est vraiment aux petits soins pour que le séjour se déroule le mieux possible, en plus elle cuisine super bien. Pas besoin d'aller au restaurant! En plus elle donne aussi des cours de cuisine!
La maison est à 5 min de la mer, c'est vraiment un super endroit! Merci encore!
We are from Ireland stayed at Nimal's Homestaynear the start of our holiday and could not have had a better introduction to this beautiful country. Nimal and Channi were so helpful and welcoming, answering all our questions and making such helpful suggestions that enhanced our holiday. Their home cooking was sublime - we never are better food for the rest of our holiday. We loved living within a small community and got a real sense of Sri Lankan life. I cannot recommend Nimal's Homestay high enough. It exceeded all our expectations. By the way, there is a lovely private local beach where you can safely swim and Nimal will take you snorkelling at another beach where the fish life is stunning. It is a short 15 minute journey by tuk tuk to Galle.
Nimal and his family are such wonderful hosts! We stayed for 6 nights over Christmas and had a fabulous time. The rooms (upstairs) are nice and very clean with big, comfortable double beds, equipped with mosquito nets. The bathrooms are very nice, the cleanest and best ones we had on our whole stay in Sri Lanka (only cold water showers, but we didn't mind). The rooms share a big balcony overlooking the greens in the lovely, calm neighbourhood. Perfect for families or friends to share. We loved Dodanduwa, perfect if you want to stay away from the tourist crowd, but still in walking (or tuk-tuk, or local bus) distance along the beach to Hikkaduwa. Nimals place is located by the lake (you go in from the main road by the big white sign for "Chineese food", cross the railway and just 2-3 houses away on your right hand side you find the homestay. If you see the small shop on your left hand side you have gone to far), away from the traffic noise. Breakfast and dinner (dinner on request) is served on the first floor, where the lovely family lives. Both Nimal and his fantastic wife Chani are excellent chefs! They also arrange cooking lessons, and Nimal will be happy to arrange tours and sightseeings for you if you wish. This is a place we do recommend by heart! Thanks a million for a wonderful stay and so many nice memories to bring back home :)
Love from Angelica with family
