Beautiful big room in the upper floor of a typical Galle Fort colonial house. Almost the whole first floor is for the use of the guest of that room alone. Bary and her wife are very attentive and the place is right in the middle of everything. Very recommendable for a stay in Galle. Thanks Bari for the perfect stay. Tomas

The home stay ar Barry place is really nice. It’s in a very old authentic house, with a lot of character. Much better then all the refurnished old places in Galle, who are too posh and too expensive and give you the feeling that you are in the South of France. At Barry’s place you feel the history of Galle. There is a lot of space outside your room, it’s clean and you have enough privacy. We felt very welcomed by Barry, his wife, daughter and two lovely little granddaughters. Fien Bloemen and family, The Netherlands

Perfect place to stay when exploring Galle Fort - right in the middle of the fort itself! Barry and family were very welcoming, the location was great and the room neat and tidy. What a privilege to stay in an authentic residential property, built by relatives of the current owners, both of whom are English teachers and are interested in hearing stories from afar. A lovely, quaint place to stay.

Beautiful huge old house with tons of character. Location couldn't be better. Room was huge with use of two showers and no one else on whole tip floor so it felt like we had a whole house. Barry and his wife were most kind, they are wonderful hosts. Wish we had had more time to talk to them and hear their stories and about their lives but we had a very tight schedule. Communication was great. Overall a great stay and most recommended.

Wonderful stay here! The house is beautiful and large. Bary and his wife were really welcoming and very kind. They let us wait around their home for our very late taxi and allowed us to leave our bags in the house all day after checkout. The location is fantastic - on one of the main streets of Galle. Could not recommend enough!

We felt welcome and comfortable in the home from the moment we arrived. The room is a good size, private and cool due to shutters, private verandah and being up on the second floor. Our two teenage children felt relaxed in the home. The location is central to everything in the very beautiful fort area. We really appreciated the help with transport for arriving and onward travel plans.

Hi! Having lived in the Galle Fort our entire lives we are keen and happy to open our home to guests who want to enjoy the experience of living in this beautiful Dutch Fort. My wife and I are both teachers and live in my ancestral home which was built over 150 years ago by my great grandparents.
The place you will be staying is our private house, which is an old villa with great character! We will be happy to share with you the stories of Galle Fort, about the families that lived here and what makes this place so special.
We look forward to hearing from you!
