Voltage is 110.There is a charming bathroom, and fully fitted kitchen area with a BBQ grill by the pool. All linens and towels are included and there is an iron and a hairdryer if needed. The fabulously large verandah is ideal for enjoying meals, sipping a rum-punch sundowner, or just relaxing in the hammock or loungers. Here you can gaze down at the tempting aquamarine pool, or just soak in the tropical surroundings – the sun shimmers and filters through the greenery, and hummingbirds and bananaquits dart around in their daily business. Driftwood Cottage is situated on the north coast of Antigua. Five minutes from the airport and a 2-minute walk from Jabberwock Beach – the favourite beach of windsurfers and kite surfers. It is also 5 minutes from 4 excellent restaurants, Le Bistro,Tides, Cecelia's and Ocean Cafe. Boat trips and car hire can be arranged and St John’s and supermarkets are just minutes away. It is an ideal base from which to explore Antigua, or just relax with a good book. Your hosts John and Sarah Fuller have a wealth of island knowledge; Sarah runs a fantastic little Pottery and shop in St. John’s and John, a famous lawyer on the island is also a history and ecology buff. Both are extremely helpful and eager to make sure your holiday is a memorable one. More
