The Kip was a true labour of love; Started completely out of passion, everything has been done with sweat, blood and tears, and we wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. It took us over a year to find our Kip and we were so close to giving up. After close to a hundred viewings we came across the old colonial villa we now call our home in midst of the Sri Lankan jungle. Rubie and Delilah joined the family.
We always try to come back to our values,
remember why we came in first place.
Opening our home to other people to slow down and take time out from their busy schedules
Our community is at the heart of everything we do. We do our best to look after our community and get them involved as much as possible. There was never a set plan for The Kip other than us wanting to bring people together, and give them the opportunity to get the clarity of mind Sri Lanka gave us when we first moved over. Everything else just seemed to fall together over time - Looking back, it’s almost as if everything was meant to happen that way - one by one.
Unified by a love for the Earth and the people who live in it.
We’re not perfect but we try to implement as many sustainable means as we can, and do our best to support the local communities in the villages surrounding us. we travel every week 45 minutes with our rubbish to take it somewhere that can be recycled because there’s no recycling – let alone garbage – service here.
Connecting through cohabitation and shared experience.
