We have just returned from a simply wonderful 10 days at Driftwood cottage; there is little point trying to out-superlative the other reviews on here. Just let me say that we have never, in many years of travelling, found as idyllic and unspoilt a place to spend in total relaxation. Thanks so much to John and Sarah for the opportunity to have the time there, and hope to see you again in the future.

“Heaven on Earth”
Reviewed 29 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We can't praise Driftwood Cottage and its delightful owners enough. On arrival our breath was taken away by the beauty of the gardens, the pretty cottage and the inviting pool. The cottage has everything one needs for a perfect holiday and drifting off to sleep in the wonderfuly comfortable bed with the Tradewinds gently cooling the evening air was the most relaxing end to the perfect days we enjoyed on this gorgeous island. Although my partner had to unavoidably leave the island for business, I stayed for the remainder of the holiday on my own and John and Sarah ensured I had everything I needed (their kindness and hospitality is outstanding!) and their delightful hounds made me feel incredibly safe. We hope to return to Driftwood - it really is heaven on earth.

“a perfect spot in paradise”
Reviewed 18 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

My husband and I have just returned from a 9 day stay, and we had an amazing time.

The cottage is absolutely charming and very well equipped and we had great fun playing with the dogs. I really don't have words to say how wonderful it was.

“AMAZING!!! We would give it 10 stars!”
Reviewed 19 August 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Amazing!!! This cottage was even more amazing than we imagined. Quiet, clean, secluded, and romantic; the cottage is close enough to stores, restaurants, and shopping, but you would never be able to tell that from how peaceful it is. The constant ocean breeze was fantastic, and made for the most relaxing evenings. The pool was a welcomed refresher after a day of traveling the island. John and Sarah were the most gracious hosts. They were more than willing to assist with any inquiries or needs. They made us feel like part of their family during our stay. Sarah's gardens make the cottage feel like your own little tropical haven. All of the amenities for making this feel like your own home away from home are available at this cottage. Take the opportunity to stay in this little piece of heaven for your visit to Antigua, you'll be glad you did!

“Wonderful Hospitality”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The cottage is every bit as wonderful as other reviewers have said. We can only add the incredible hospitality of the owners. They led us to great restaurants, beaches, etc, and gave us excellent insight into the island. Also delightful touches like fresh flowers on the table and everything you Might need such as a gas grill, cooler, lots of big towels, scuba gear, etc. do plan at least one very special dinner at Le Bistro.
