Driftwood is perfect. There is nothing I didn't love about the property, staff, and location. It's not close to the center of Treasure Beach, which makes it seem as if you are all alone on your private island. The staff is amazing and cooked spectacular meals for us twice a day. I couldn't have asked for a better place to...

Management response:

Justin - We are so happy to hear that you love Driftwood as much as we do and that your stay was everything you needed. Sorry for our delay in response, we hope to hear from you again in the future. :)

My husband, 3 children and I stayed at the Driftwood this summer - end of July/early August 2016 (children ages: 20, 18 and 16).

Management response:

Suzanne - again I am so happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed Driftwood, even with the initial hiccup! ;) Marie, Wendy and Odain say hello and that they enjoyed you visiting the property. Tiverton House, LLC looks forward to hearing from you in the future the next time you choose to visit Jamaica. -Nicole

We went to Jamaica for our sister's wedding. Lots of advanced planning and searching for the right property was done but you never really know what it's going to be like. None of us had ever rented a house, only hotels or all-inclusive resorts so this was a new experience. Nicole got back to me usually within the same day...
