*New from November 2019: plunge pool in rear garden for guests to enjoy!!*

Bright airy apartment with balcony and semi-open air bathroom, situated opposite a cinnamon field in a peaceful green spot. This is an ideal base from which to enjoy the beach life of Hikkaduwa, in a relaxing environment.

The space
This is one of 4 purpose-built self-catering apartments. Located opposite a beautiful cinnamon field, where you can often see tropical birds and monkeys, it's just a 15minute walk or a short scooter ride from the Narigama end of Hikkaduwa beach.

This apartment is upstairs and has a balcony with lounging day-bed which overlooks the garden,

Large double bedroom with super-king sized bed, mosquito net and fan, desk and wardrobe..large windows look out onto the jungle behind.

Spacious modern semi-open air en-suite bathroom, with hot water shower and bath tub, you can watch the stars and fireflies at night while you soak, and shower in the sunshine!

Private kitchen with breakfast bar, gas/electric hob, fridge-freezer, and cooking equipment.

The garden is shared with the other guests and is a great, shady place to relax-it has a big barbeque (perfect for cooking up the great local seafood!) and Chill out area with a long table and floor cushions.

There is space to park scooters within the gated area, and there is also room to park a small car outside the property.

Please note that these apartments are designed for 2 adults sharing rather than families. For that reason amongst others, we only consider taking children and infants in certain circumstances where we think it can work. Please consult with us before booking if you're travelling with a child, thank you.

Guest access
Guests have access to the full garden, chill-out and barbeque, but are asked to please respect any fellow guests and take care not to leave the communal areas messsy, thank you!

Other things to note
This is a leafy green area so please don't be shocked to come across insects and geckos on the property. This is something we enjoy about living here and is almost impossible to avoid, but can be reduced by keeping food out of the bedroom, and kitchen surfaces clean. During high season, there are often droughts across the country and the local government restrict water use..we are lucky enough to have our own well, but ask that guests consider their water consumption during this time and try not to be wasteful. For this reason we do not replace towels or clean daily but are very happy to do so when needed-just give us a shout!

The wifi is generally fine here for normal browsing but data is limited so it's not suitable for streaming. If you are planning to work remotely it's worth considering buying a dongle so that you have more reliable internet access.

Location

Hikkaduwa, Southern province, Sri Lanka

Hikkaduwa is known for its beach and the various water based activities-from late October until March, it becomes a popular surf destination with something for each level-from beginner to advanced. (Ask if you would like lessons or help with board hire!) during this time you can dive, snorkel and wake board. There is a beautiful lagoon nearby, with small islands and a temple, and we are in a good position to visit Galle and its historic fort. Local handicrafts, leatherwork, and moonstones along with other gems can be bought here. If you want any advice on an itinerary we can easily advise you on how to make the most of your stay!

A Sri lankan/British partnership, living in beautiful Hikkaduwa on the South West coast of Sri Lanka . I (Amila) am a surf instructor who grew up here, and Hannah is a photographer. We love to travel, and built Banana Leaf Apartments here in 2014 as a place we could welcome guests and help them have the kind of holiday we love! We enjoy being hosts, and have met some really great people through Air bnb, it's always interesting to see who's going to arrive next! We aim to make our guests stay as comfortable as possible-you'll often find us cooking and sharing it around- and show you the more local, undiscovered side of Sri Lanka. From surf lessons to transport to adventures in the jungle, we are here to help!

During your stay
We are friendly sociable people and one of the things we love about Air bnb is meeting people from all over the world-we are happy to spend time with you (we often share meals etc!) and we also understand that you need your own space and privacy. We are available whenever (resonably) necessary and are very happy to offer advice and help with planning trips.
