My husband + I stayed for 2 nights at Driftwood cottages and we had a really nice stay. The cottages were clean, comfortable and full of character. We enjoyed eating our meals on the verandah and finishing our day soaking in the hot tub! Thanks again guys, we highly recommend your cottages! Laura + Ryan.

Had a lovely 2 nights at Driftwood cottages. The management was kind enough to shuttle our group around when needed, which was really appreciated. They really went above and beyond to accommodate our group's needs. The hottub and badminton was a nice touch and local beaches were beautiful. The deer and variety of birds to see were a treat as...

Once again, our peaceful get-away to Driftwood; staying in our favourite little cottage, was wonderful! The natural beauty of the property and the birdsong and deer surrounded us in magic! Even saw an otter this time too! And a full moon! The weather was chilly, but we could still hang out on our porch to read, relax or dine, and... More

The cottages aren't fancy but they are they offer a cozy retreat in a nice, tranquil setting. There's Peekaboo views of active pass and easy access to amenities in Sturdies Bay, the ferry and more. Friendly staff and a reasonable cost, too add to the appeal.

I've been escaping to Driftwood village every now and then since 2000. I keep coming back, especially in the sholder season when the prices are more in my range. I would definitely reccomend it to anyone looking for a peaceful weekend with the family or a romantic retreat. The cabins do vary, and in general it seems the ones named... More

We, and successive generations of our dogs, have been coming back to this place at different seasons for nearly 20 years, and have just come back from our latest visit. It remains a wonderfully friendly place, comfortable, relaxing and homely. The view out towards Active Pass is lovely, and there is easy hiking access to the Bluffs, Matthew's Point and... More

Once again, our experience staying at the Driftwood Village Resort has been a positive experience. After about 7 years of going there, we are now part of the family. It feels like our little home away from home, but without the city traffic, construction noise, and smoggy air. Galiano Island is an oasis for serenity and peace. Driftwood allows us... More

My husband and I stayed here two nights in the Lilac Cottage. It was cozy, rustic, and comfortable. We even saw deer just outside our cottage munching on the grass! Shelley, the manager, was very pleasant and easygoing. We enjoyed our peaceful, relaxing stay. We would definitely consider staying here again next time we visit Galiano Island. I like that... More

We've been visiting this place for 20 years. It is friendly, homely and blissfully relaxed. The staff -- more like friends really -- are unobtrusively helpful and down-to-earth. Galiano is a beautiful and laid-back place. It's not trendy, just friendly, intelligent and slightly eccentric. I hope it stays that way.

All the cotttages are situated such that each has its own privacy..yet are not too far away from each other as this was important especially as we travelled as... More
