Driftwood is a newly built self contained Caribbean cottage set a few meters from Laborie's beautiful beach. It has everything you want for a relaxing holiday. Many of the features in the cottage originate from an original cottage that was located on the other side of Laborie Bay. It has a large open plan bedroom with a wonderfully comfortable antique queen size bed, a roomy sitting area, a large, sunny bathroom and a fully equipped separate kitchen. The large patio is a perfect place to have breakfast or chill drinking your Piton beer at the end of the day, watching village life on the beach. Driftwood offers everything you are looking for if you want to get a taste of real Caribbean life. Laborie is a unique fishing village. The people are very friendly and it is very safe to walk around any time of the day or evening. We... Read more

The friendliness and beauty of this unspoilt village of Labourie envelopes you. It is matched by the laid back but efficient owners who live nearby but do not intrude. We stayed in Driftwood which has a relaxing balcony (regularly visited by humming birds) that faces the sea although you cannot see it. The waterfront is only about 60 m away....

Management response:

Thanks for the lovely review John. Just for future guests you most definitely can see the sea from the porch. From one angle it is a little obscured when seated,by a palm, which I will thin out today. Thanks for pointing this out.
