Great place to relax and enjoy the Sri Lankan heat

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 stayed here for a week in April as part of our year on the road and we had a wonderful time. John and Marilyn are VERY hospitable hosts and they made sure all of our needs were looked after. Marilyn's advice and the service she provided arranging our activities were so appreciated. Balapitiya is a quiet village with plenty to do in the surrounding area. Highlights for us were the river safari, the turtle hatchery, and a trip to Fort Galle.

Awesome ******* 5 Bedroomed holiday bungalow

  • 5 of 5
Awesome in all ways++++++++. The owners John and Marilyn have thought of everything to make the bungalow a definite home away from home whilst on holiday meeting all needs,(plus every extra you suddenly think about is there too we can tell you ) Also cleaned and maintained to a very high standard.with first class mosquito nets and air conditioning in each room which are really appreciated)

The pool is a dream and kept clean on a daily basis by John - thanks so much John

We saw the resident bright blue king fisher numerous times each day we stayed which was wonderful, other birds, butterflies were also an absolute dream. The local monkeys, and above all amazing rare Fire Flies can also be seen although weather dependant around the pool area lighting up the night sky an absolutely amazing sight not to be missed a real .'must' to stay here also a 'rare find' as in other countries such as Borneo a paid excursion with travelling time of an hour plus with in guarantee of a sighting. Is necessary John and Marilyn are very proud that the pool area is a mass of fire flies from time to time however which is wonderful and mesmerising

Siramel is the perfect tuk-tuk driver who likes to keep all his passengers happy and we can confirm this is the case -thanks Siramel

The location is perfect for all sightseeing via tuk tuk , train, bus, walking or taxi (to suit)

The River Safari which is absolutely excellent is nearby, a working rare blue moon stone mine, Tsunami museum, Galle Forte and International Cricket Stadium are all nearby making this the perfect Sri Lanka Holiday base for anyone. Also a few wonderful restaurants Fishermen on stilts being approx an hour away by car also

My husband and I would like to take the opportunity to thank John and Marilyn for such a perfect break whilst in Sri Lanka -The bungalow is definitely a golden nugget in Sri Lanka and we will definitely recommend a the bungalow to friends/stay again in the future

Marilyn and John keep up the great work we miss our home from home so much already so look after it still please

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed five weeks in the bungalow and it was perfect for a family vacation. It was nice, clean and big enough for two families (4 adults and 5 children ages 3-11). The children absolutely loved the pool wich was meticulously maintenanced by the owners. The location is quiet with empty, beautiful beaches within walking distance. Tourist areas like Hikkaduwa and Bentota are only a short tuk-tuk drive away. The owners Marilyn and John are very friendly and helpful and provided us with a lot of useful information. Their helper and tuk tuk driver Sirimal provided excellent service and always made us laugh. We had a wonderful stay that totally exceeded our expectations. We would really like to come back next year./ Bylund family from Sweden

Great place to unwind

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderfully relaxing 10 days in Sri Lanka. The country is very pretty with colourful scenery and we found everyone friendly and helpful. Balapitiya is a small town with the most unspoiled and empty beaches; it has yet to be commercialised which for us added to its charm.

Dralion is a spacious, very comfortable and clean bungalow with everything needed for a self-catering holiday. The pool and gardens are kept immaculately clean and tidy and are very private; linen is changed every 4 days. The owners, John and Marilyn, couldn't have been more helpful giving advice on where to go and what to do; this was especially appreciated when we needed to visit a dentist! Their tuk-tuk driver Siramel is a real treasure helping us with our shopping and taking us on a couple of local trips. We particularly enjoyed the river safari and a visit to Galle on the local rail service. Recommended for a completely relaxing and “away from it all” holiday where you’ll be able to unwind in peaceful and attractive surroundings.

3 semaines merveilleuses en juillet 2013

  • 4 of 5
Nous étions 7 personnes ( 2 parents et leurs enfants et belle-fille de 12 à 23 ans) .Nous sommes restés 3 semaines dans ce joli bungalow. Il est très spacieux, très propre, très agréable. La piscine est magnifique. Situé dans un village qui n'est pas touristique, cela permet de rencontrer, si on le souhaite, la population locale. Les plages situées à 10 minutes à pied du bungalow sont splendides et désertes. Marilyn et John, dont la maison se situe à côté de la piscine, sont très discrets et très gentils, toujours prêts à vous rendre service et à répondre à tous vos besoins. Merci à eux.

Great Holiday Great Ambiance Great Accommodation

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic location for a much needed relaxing holiday but within easy reach of the beach and other major tourist attractions.

The accommodation itself was extremely clean and comfortable and surpassed all expectations. The private pool was beautiful, clean and maintained daily by the owners, and was for our exclusive use throughout the holiday.

The owners Marilyn and John were particularly hospitable with good local knowledge and assisted with transport to and from the airport, and organising transport for various excursions. The personal touch that John and Marilyn provided helped make the holiday an unforgetable experience, as were the Tuk Tuk rides with Sirimel, (their preferred and charismatic driver).

The local turtle sancturary and river safari are a must as is the 5 minute walk to the Mangrove Cave Restaurant if you wish to enjoy the local cuisine.

I would certainly recommend this accommodation to anyone wishing to travel to Sri Lanka and enjoy a serene and very pleasant holiday experience.
