General description

  • Main home
We are living in Mirissa, one of the most beautiful places in the south. We have a modern treehouse which is located 100 meters from the center and has all the basics including kitchen, warm shower plus extra outdoor shower, internet and electricity and an amazing sea view. We don’t have a lot of luxury, the interior is basic but it is an unique place surrounded by the jungle. Our house is not your typical house because we have a very open house, which means, not a lot of walls but bamboo blinds to close down when its raining.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Big garden
  • 2 dogs
We have rescued two street dogs, Mogwli and Nala. Mowgli is already a year with us when Nala we saved a few months ago and is at the moment around 6 months. Mowlgi is a very sweet and calm dog when Nala is very active and busy. We have a huge garden where they walk in freely. So there is no need to really walk with the dogs. but they do need a lot of love :) They are running up and down most of the say so at then end of the day they are usually quite exhausted.

In the main season we run an adventure park (this is basically our garden, its called Jungle Playground for more info). In the off season when we are away, the park will be closed so there is not much work needed. But we do ask you to some keep a bit an eye on if nothing gets really damaged. The dogs love to walk with you trough our park :)

Our house is suitable for people who love to be outside. Because of the open character of our house, the wind blows through the house and you are in the middle of the jungle. You will wake up with the monkeys just in front of you in the threes when the sun shines through the leaves. This is truly the best way to wake up. On the other side, since you will be living in our house in the main season, you can also have the tropical storms when the wind is blowing again the blinds. Our house is basic but has all we need and very unique because of the location and the design. .

We have a down area where we have a kitchen with a gas cooker, fridge, second shower and second toilet and where we have a chiil area where we also have some hammocks where you can lay in and relax.

We would recommend that you have some kind of occupation during the day because we could also image that you might have some rainy days where there is not so much to do.

Comfort and Luxury

  • 2 floors
  • One room of which one bedroom
  • Regional
  • Terrace / Balcony

Tourism and Leisure

  • Sea
  • Forest
  • Beach
Mirissa is one of the tourist hotspot in the south coast. We live on top of a hill (and because of that have an amazing sea view). But we are only 100 meters away from the beach. If you are into surfing you will definitely like it here since the south coast has the best places to surf. Even though its not the main season you will still have a lot of nice waves and the best thing, not so many tourist. Because Mirissa is one of the most touristic places it has a lot of nice restaurants. Some of them will close in the low season but there is still enough places to go.
