We have stayed one night at pearly's, February 8th 2015. Points which were disappointing, ask if solved then real nice place! Pearly's is in a big construction, no noise of this but it looks like a construction site, they SHOULD have said this while booking.. Shower / water in one of the buildings is a surprise as the water tank... More

Initially we booked just two nights at Pearly and Sunil's and found ourselves staying for our whole two weeks! The location is amazing, right on the beach where you can see turtles popping their heads up out of the sea and not far from Galle, Unawatuna, Midigama and Mirissa. The upstairs cabana is definitely the best room, with your own... More

Firstly, it is important to say that Pearly and her family could not be more welcoming and helpful. Unfortunately, as they are in the middle of extending and adding more rooms, you are staying on a building site. There is a half finished building beside the two original beach cabanas. Three of the rooms are finished and accessed by the... More

What can we say but wow! Pearly, Sunil and the family were simply amazing and so hospitable! The perfect end to a very busy tour of Sri Lanka. They could not do enough for us to make our stay comfortable and unforgettable, even saying that this was our home, which it truly felt like. It was almost like were long... More

It is a nice and beautiful place with a nice cabana right at the beach, especially the one upstairs has a beatiful view and nice atmosphere. The last time we really also enjoyed the great breakfast. BUT it is now the second time (out of 2) that she massed up our booking. The last time we were 4 and she... More

We arrived at Pearly's in time for her signature breakfast having been picked up from the airport by her nephew Amila and son ,Eranga. What a great way to start our first time in Sri Lanka. Pearly and family are extremely friendly and nothing is too much trouble. As other reviewers have already mentioned, Pearly is a wonderful cook and... More

Four of us ended our tour of the country here and it was close enough to PERFECT! We stayed 3 nights, loving the location, the food and the hospitality of Pearly and her family. Breakfasts were amazing, especially the coconut pancakes. We were thrilled to see turtles in the water out front each afternoon. If you are looking for somewhere... More

The four of us were working in Galle and just looking around the local area when we just happened to come across Dream Cabanas. Pearly and Sunnil were in the garden and waved us over when they saw us admiring their beautiful private garden and amazing Cabanas. We talked, drank ice cold coke and were invited to use the private... More

Pearly and Sunil welcomed us to the Dream Cabana when we arrived early in the morning. We were excited to see we had a spectacular view of the ocean from our cabana deck/bedroom. The cabanas are located in a great location, away from the touristy Unawatuna (but an easy cheap tuk tuk ride if you want to see it or... More

We have been there last week, and it is a really nice home stay, just beside the beach. Wow! You do have your own private beach and the food they cook is delicious! Looking forward to stay there again. As this is a homestay BnB, don't expect a 5-star luxury suite, expect a local room with minimum comfort, but it... More
