Driftwood Strahan Villas
Reviewed February 3, 2012

We were very lucky to be accommodated in the new and spacious 2 bedroomed chalet. It was superbly equipped and very comfortable. There was no noise on either night. We found the owners very friendly and helpful. We also had free wifi from the reception area.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the two new chalets

Roosters, ducks and chickens to the right, extremely loud party across the road with excessively loud music and screeching, owners not on site and the best that they can offer is that it doesn't happen regularly. Look at the other reviews and make up your own mind.

I wish that we had paid closer attention to the reviews before booking.

FYI we were in no. 6 which is half way down the property. In my view avoid and look elsewhere.

We stayed for one night in Driftwood Strahan Villas. It was good value for money (we paid $125). Villa 1 had kitchen, lounge, dining in one large room seperated from bedroom and ensuite (which had wheelchair access). The queen size bed was very comfortable & good quality linen was used. The decor was tasteful. Overall I was happy to have stayed there.

Room Tip: Villa 1 is on street level whereas the other Villas are down a driveway on the property. Other revie...

Our family of 6 stayed in one of the Driftwood Villas during our recent visit to Strahan. We were delighted with the very high standard of accommodation that we had selected. It was spotlessly clean, well maintained and in a convenient location that allowed us to leave our car in off street parking for our entire visit of the area. We were able to recycle .... even our vegie and fruit scraps which were fed to the worms. The kitchen facilities enabled us to self-cater for the 3 nights we stayed with a supermarket a very short walk from Driftwood Villas. A perfect base to rest our heads while exploring this amazing part of Tasmania. Thank you very much.

This place would have to be one of the cleanest places i've ever been too. Well maintained well presented, friendly and helpfull. If you go you MUST do the river cruise on the "Eagle". Never mind the "Lady jane" as there not a local company. The staff at Driftwood will book this for you.

The room was neat enough in a basic way but we were facing the street. Across the street there is a local family that likes to party in their front yard with the rest of the locals.
Frist night- something on a spit and lots of drinking
Second night after the not to be missed Strahan Xmas Parade add burnouts, chasing each other with axes, donuts, shouting and car bashing all through the night.
Which really isn't the fault of the accomodation which is like a basic motel style accomodation. We needed out TV fixed and the staff were very helfpul. However, they are gone when the locals get going. Our girls felt quite scared and they are so rough you wouldn't want to have a word. So if you must stay here and not somewhere in the main street, which is probably policed more- take earplugs and a twelve gauge shotgun. Sorry Driftwood not your fault I know....
Gordon River Cruise and the sand boarding saved this place from too many bad memories.

The accommodation was clean comfortable and everything worked. The draw back; the block next door is old Mac Donalds farm. Even that is mostly not a problem. However, before 4 am the roosters next door and (we counted 5) began a vocal battle for supremecy that lasted until about half five when it was truly light and they got on with feeding
