Anthony (and his mom) and Jan were wonderful hosts. Tony in particular took time out to make sure everything was to our satisfaction and provided lots of information on where to eat, what to see and a rental vehicle!
Driftwood by the Beach is a cute, self-contained cottage with a view of the beach and just a short walk to a beautiful, mainly unpopulated beach with swimming that is unparalleled for the area. There were a few free provisions (bottled water,tea, biscuits) provided on arrival and the cottage had everything, including air conditioning and wifi!
There were a lot of animals in the vicinity- dogs, chickens, roosters and goats. So if you are not an animal lover, this might not be a good place for you. If, on the other hand, you like a rural environment and want to see the non-city side of St. Lucia, this is a great place to hang out!

This place was so lovely and peaceful and tony and jan was great owners too and very helpful.. They have 4 lovely friendly dogs (all girls) and goats so I was always happy to have the animals around,
The room was lovely and clean with good air con and a fan also.
Tony picked us up from the airport which didn't cost us much and then took us to the supermarket to get some bits for the room. They had all the facilities you need ie: salt/pepper/oil/ tea/ coffees and sugar and much more ... Was so happy to spend my time relaxing on the balcony and the beach which you can see from your cottage.
The wifi was very good with great signal.
Laborie was great and the the people so friendly, always say hello, we went for food at the big bamboo where they serve the best food in laborie I thought..Kent the owner is so nice and even gave us a ride up to his other pub on the highway when his other was closed on the Tuesday... Could go on forever but you won't be disappointed if you stay here.. We are up in the north of Rodney bay which is nice but laborie is my favorite place .. Thanks tony and jan for helping us enjoy our stay .
