Come and stay with a local family + at an IT office

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionMy home is situated between Passikkudah and Arugam bay.

    About Me:
    I am from Sri Lanka east coast.
    I am a web developer, technical support engineer, senior tech lead, and managing a private limited company that is incorporated with UK, Italy, and Romania.

    Even I am so much into IT and software I always am dreaming and think about traveling to new places and acquaintance new people.
    I already visited some Asian countries.
    After all these visits I've decided to start a hostel and homestay for the travelers in my beautiful village.

    About Us:
    I am married to a girl from my village who is an excellent cook and patience.
    We have a cute, handsome, clever, and very active 6 years old kid. :)
    He always lightens up the places he is roaming.

    My home or the place you will be staying:
    My home is just 300 meters away from the beach.
    I am planning to start a hostel & homestay for the travelers who travel through the Sri Lankan east coast area.
    My home is 1680 square feet two-story.
    I have an idea to set up the hostel and homestay on the rooftop and make it a third story.
    I already have an idea about rooms and facilities.

    My village Maruthamunai has a beautiful clean beach but swimming there is not recommended.
    Waves are rough and strong.
    On the other side, there were paddy fields.
    After the Tsunami people started to build homes in the agricultural lands.

    We need help with
    1. the general house cleaning process.
    2. Helping with translating some websites to any language if you can.
    3. setting up tour package / attractions in my area that could attract tourists
    4. Photography for my social networks
    5. videography for my youtube channel

    You do not have to do all these works.
    You can choose what you can do and process.
    We do not expect you to work for the whole day.
    You can work whenever you feel you can work. :)

    See you soon in real!!!
