Overview
Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 3
St. John's, Saint John Parish, Antigua, Antigua and Barbuda
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....

Firstly, Sarah is a superb host. Friendly, accessible, helpful, but discrete - not intrusive. A personal concierge, in a way. Secondly, this cottage is in a great location for accessing beaches, shops, restaurants. Easy access from the airport. Hire car gave us independence and really made everywhere within reach (we rented from Sarah's friend which worked really well). We ate...

Cozy and private, this lovely open-air cottage is tucked away in the middle of a lush garden of a large private residence in the more affluent part of Antigua. Thank God, untouched by Irma this year, the house, pool and the garden are in an impeccable condition. A very comfortable bed, convenient kitchenette, large dining area -- and even a...

I wake up this morning having to bid farewell to Antigua and all the wonderful, warm and kind hearted people. We have stayed at Sarah's Tropical cottage tucked in an oasis of lush green palm trees and singing birds. The large swimming pool is an absolute delight, tucked in between the lush thick garden of greenery. It is romantic, private...
