A secluded romantic hideaway, Driftwood Cottage is a beautiful Caribbean-styled, self-catering cottage with large verandah, surrounded by magnificently lush tropical gardens.

It is the perfect place to relax…a large pool is just a couple of steps from the verandah and the cut stone deck is spectacularly surrounded by palms and bougainvillea, orchids and lily ponds. The energetic can swim, the less-so inclined can just dip in every now and then as they retire to the loungers and soak up the sun.

The romantic exterior leads to the even more romantic interior, which boasts a wonderful 18th century four-poster king size bed, and high airy ceilings. The living area is uniquely decorated with lighting and accessories designed by a local potter. There is also cable T.V., a well-stocked library and an additional sofa bed. Voltage is 110....

Only 10 minutes from the airport, but in a quiet, private location, Driftwood Cottage is a wonderful place to chill out. The photographs accurately portray this delightful accommodation, although the pool has very recently been completely refurbished. The owners John and Sarah are extremely hospitable and helpful in providing local information. There are many excellent restaurants and bars within 15...

Driftwood Cottage was the last destination in our four week stay in the West Indies. The first three weeks were filled with sight-seeing in Antigua and St Kitts and sailing in the British Virgin Islands so we were looking forward to "chilling out" and doing nothing. This cottage was the ideal place for that. A swim early in the morning,a...

I can echo the comments from recent visitors - this is just the most perfect place to relax and enjoy life! We loved the open plan layout with plenty of fresh air circulating around the huge bed. No problem using the mossie nets. The newly refurbished pool is great - swimming under the stars (thats a first for me!). Perhaps...
