Our stay at driftwood was very pleasant. The bedrooms were large and the living room and kitchen area was massive with plent of room for everyone. The entire villa was so clean we wondered if anyone had ever used it before us. The self contained kitchen was great and an absolute must for us travelling with children.The Driftwood complex was just a short stroll from the centre of town and shops just right for our young ones and very peaceful and quiet. The manager was friendly and was very keen to help us see and experience the best that Strahan had to offer.

We stayed one night at Driftwood Strahan in July during our trip through Tas. This is possibly one of the cleanest properties I have stayed in throughout the world, and not a noise to be heard all night. The bedding was very comfortable, kitchen had everything we needed and a very sizeable bathroom. Our own covered carport made unpacking easy and checking in and out was hassle-free. We couldn't fault Driftwood and it is exceptional value for money. It's not waterfront but it is walking distance to supermarket and the main strip if you are up to an incline coming back up. Well done Driftwood, you exceeded our expectations by a (quiet) mile.

We stayed at this place for 3 nights while visiting Strahan. The accommodation was clean, tidy and modern with an undercover car space. It was cose to town and the people at reception were friendly. The only problem is that there is a run down property right next door that consists of acerage with chickens, roosters, sheep... you name it. The biggest problem was that there were also 2 dogs on this property that were kept locked up as far as we could tell. One of the dogs howled consistently like a coyote even throughout the night which nearly drove us insane. The owners of this barnyard seemed to be away most of the time and when we complained about the noise to reception at the Driftwood Villas, they said there was really nothing they could do. They pretty much indicated that most people were scared of the occupants of this barnyard and they didn't want to do anything to rock the boat. Other people staying there left because they couldn't stand the constant howling. We tried but all other accommodation in town was booked out.

Overall, good accommodation but just wanted to warn others about these confounded dogs. Maybe ask if anything has been done before confirming your booking.

PS...A final thing is that if you do finally get to sleep, beware the roosters start crowing about 5.00am.

  • Liked — Easy access, close to town, clean and tidy.
  • Disliked — the property next door - noisy animals

As I explained to all our guests on the night of the crying dog that it was not a common occurence. The owners were away and the dog was being care for by our neighbours.
The council had been contacted by several residents which takes the complaint out of our hands and it to the hands of the council.
I can only appoligise for for the time it cried but I can assure potential guests we do not have a constant crying dog next to our property.
Yes we do have roosters next door which only adds to the experience.
