“It was the most relaxing holiday we have had for ages”
Reviewed 31 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Great location, safe quiet beach a few steps away, lovely warm sea. Very friendly people, and the local amenities all within easy walking distance. There were plenty of good places to eat and drink nearby. Driftwood Cottage is a lovely place to stay. It has everything you need, a great view of the sea, lovely porch to sit on, eat breakfast, have a glass of wine! Tony and Jan are lovely hosts, nothing is too much trouble, and they made our stay very special.

My husband and I returned to this place again this year!
Spectacular cottage, beach is extraordinary, hosts are so genuine and the
surroundings truly a local experience. Local people are kind and welcoming
but do not bother you to buy items.
Jan and Tony are always willing to answer a questions or to help out in
'above and beyond' ways.
We will return!!
Note: lots of dogs... friendly and not bothersome, but you should at
least like dogs!

“Paradise on earth”
Reviewed 28 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Fabulous stay at Driftwood last week. Driftwood is located just behind the beautiful beach in Laborie Bay, a charming Caribbean village on the west side of the island of Saint Lucia. The accommodation is superb - lovely bathroom, relaxing verandah, comfortable bed and a well equipped kitchen for those who really want to cook. However, the local restaurants, although simple, are excellent - Wilson's "Salt Rush" on the beach as well as Mama Tilly's highly recommended and great value for money. Tony and Jan are consummate hosts and full of local knowledge - they gave us great recommendations on things to do and were always on hand when needed. Just love the place and will be back soon !

“A trip to paradise”
Reviewed 27 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

people found this review helpful

A brief trip but well worth it. Laborie on the south end of the island is full of Carrabian character and only a 15 minute drive from the airport.
Driftwood was the perfect place to stay for a relaxing break, overlooking the lush garden towards the white sandy beach and turquoise blue sea.
The accommodation is bright, spacious and beautifully decorated with attention to detail, and the bed is very comfortable. There is air conditioning if required.
The separate kitchen provides ample equipment for cooking if desired, but we ate out most evenings to enjoy the local ambiance; Mama Tilly's a favorite.
Breakfast on the shaded veranda while watching the feeding humming birds - Perfect.
We loved an evening stroll along the beach to Wilson's bar to watch the sunset.
Jan and Tony, the owners couldn't be more helpful. They are full of local knowledge and seem to know all the local people.
Can't wait to return.

“A piece of paradise!”
Reviewed 13 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

If you want to know what life is really like on St. Lucia, this stay in Laborie is an excellent start. Hosts Tony and Jan are welcoming and full of information they are happy to share with you. The accommodation is immaculate, and the front porch/veranda offers a view of the sea. Multitudes of hummingbirds swarm to the feeders, and local roosters and chickens help you greet the day. There is always a fresh breeze, and fans and AC available if needed. The private beach is perfect, shaded by huge palms and dotted with sea glass rather than shells. Because it's a protected bay, the water is lovely warm. Tony and Jan are involved with local dog rescues, so their beloved pets and wannabes are a moving feast of canine variety, as well as a dependable security system! Your hosts can make many arrangements for extraordinary activities to suit your taste: travel around the island, sunset or snorkel cruises, private lobster dinners and an evening meal at a lovely estate reminiscent of colonial living (Balenbouche). They can help arrange weddings, vow renewals and other bespoke celebrations-----or you can just unplug, lie back and enjoy this piece of paradise.
