We are very excited to get known to you and having you here most certainly will be a pleasure we are looking forward to. We will make your stay an unforgetable time that you will treasure in your memories forever. Thanks for giving a great value for an extraordinary experience. We share our lives with you.
God bless you.
Stay at the Treehouse.
Monkeys are hiding in the treetops and waiting for a chance to grap tree-ripe fruits from our garden. The peacock gives notice of the intruders while sitting on his favourite tree. Our Treehouse is hidden in the evergreen lush riverforest next to the stream. Listen to the jungle-sounds and become one with mother nature.
Take a deep breath, unwind your mind.
Experience Wholefood & Rawfood.
Let us pamper your tastebuds with healthy wholefood, gardenfresh vegetables and raw salads. Try out traditional Sri Lankan Cuisine from Anusha. This is a great place for Rawfoodiests and of course anybody who follows a healthy diet. You like to relax and rejuvinate body and mind and maybe use your time here to detox your world?
Benefit optimum conditions.
Follow forest streams to hidden waterfalls.
Waterfalls are one of the beauty spots of Sri Lanka and our favourite holiday destination. We also like forests and of course mountain climbing or animal watching to link back to mother nature. We enjoy the sandy beaches on the eastcoast as much as we like to visit interesting places far of the beaten track.
Step barefooted into your next adventure.
Sustainability and Self Sufficiency Lifestyle.
If you like to give us a helping hand in our permacultural garden, grow your own food or join one of our ongoing projects you are warmly welcome. Use your time here to do what you like most or what you always wanted to do. Share some moments of our simple life and support us to live off the land.
Plant a tree in our garden.
Welcome. Be our guest.
We have the perfect way for you to get away from everything. Welcome to the jungle where the wild boar roams the night and the peacock heralds the day.
Imagine a small authentic village with terraced green paddy fields, banana orchards and pepper-gardens. Where anybody has large fruit trees of all kinds in their home gardens. Fresh produce is shared with neighbours and you will meet always smiling people.
We are located 260km (7-8 hours) from Colombo and 80km (2 hours) from Arugam Bay/East Coast.
Monaragala is in the central Eastern part of Sri Lanka - in the Uva Province. Our village is around 10 km north of Monaragala town and we still have a good climate nestled between the upcountry and the Monaragala mountain range, behind where the dry zone begins. In our village there is a mountain from where you can see the east coast on a clear day.
Here you can watch and learn, help to grow and take care of plants, try out something or just harvest farm-fresh produce and enjoy the fruits & vegetables.
Or maybe you just relax all day and eat what we prepare for you from the garden. It's up to you. There are many things to do here.
But this is also the perfect place to do nothing.
"If I were restricted to the selection of one beauty spot, I would tell of a desolate forest stream, for removed from the hum of the world, which pristine mystery pervades, where the wild birds sing, and all is just as God had planned it. "
(The end of the last chapter "beauty spots of Ceylon" from the book "Far-Off Things" by Richard L. Spittel)
What our guests say about the treehouse
"Thank you guys...
for the most beautiful experience all over Sri Lanka! We enjoyed our time so much that we got lost about the time sitting here with the amazing view, jungle sounds and calmness! Relaxation in all her purity...
this treehouse will be in our memory forever! You ´re doing a great thing with your land, dreams, food and love for the nature. It´s been a pleasure to meet you, chat for hours and having delicious currys and fruits. If there would be more time - we could stay forever.
Thanks for your kindness, the space and freedom we had in your treehouse and in your land, the time in school and all the shared moments the last days. Sorry for any trouble we caused because of loosing our time sitting here doing yoga and meditation - and of course enjoying our time together. Hope to see you again someday..."
