Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Driftwood was everything we wanted and more. This was our 5th visit to Barbados, and this is the best place we have found (we have stayed in hotels and villas)

The villa is very well thought out, providing everything you could possibly need. James was very helpful throughout, from booking through to his very detailed guest guide.

Previous villas we have rented, have been a little dated. Not Driftwood! Its tastefully decorated, very comfortable, and very well thought about, and all the linen is super soft! (all from The White Company) Great addition of the Sonos, and the outdoor living area is perfect.

We stayed with a toddler, who was very well catered for, with a high chair and plastic cups and plates etc.

Location wise, we loved it, a quiet road, a very short walking distance to Mullins Beach (bar!) We did have a car so we could venture further.

Thank you James for a fabulous holiday, and for your excellent communication throughout. Monica the cleaner is a star, keeping the place immaculate. Julie was also really helpful. So thank you to all.

We are already looking at when we can return

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house with everything you need for the perfect relaxing holiday, close to Gibbs beach for the most spectacular blue seas and peace and quiet; or if you have children and like busy then Mullins beach is for you. Get a yellow bus to Holetown and Speightstown and Mullins beach bar to watch the sun go down. Monica the housekeeper is so lovely and keeps the place amazing. The pool is just right and the sonos system was a home away from home. The only thing missing is a BBQ. We booked to return before leaving!!!!

Wonderful house & holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the Mullins area several times before but staying at Driftwood was the best experience to date. The house layout works very well for sharing and we loved the open plan living/kitchen area. Perfect location for the beach & bus to all parts of the island. We have already booked to return, can't wait!

Stunning villa, fantastic location - we'll be back

  • 5 of 5

Driftwood villa is simply stunning! We stayed here on our third trip to Barbados and it was our first staying at Driftwood. The location was fantastic, just a few minutes stroll to Mullins beach, with (in my opinion!) one of the very best beach bars on the island.

The villa itself was spotless, extremely modern and well maintained. We’ve stayed in a few different properties on a similar budget but none have been as bright, well-kept and high quality as Driftwood. The open-plan, indoors/outdoors way of living that it enables with its huge folding patio doors was fantastic and we felt so relaxed and at home at the property. The kitchen is well-equipped if you want to eat at home rather than out all the time and there was a decent wifi connection, which was good for us who are self-employed and needed to do some work.

The pool is a good size and we even saw monkeys in the garden while lazing about in the afternoons!

Monica the cleaner was very thorough and attentive yet unimposing during her visit to give the place a spruce – she’s a great character to have a natter to about the island!

We had a hire car and found all we needed within a short drive but there was also bus stops close by. Mullins Beach Bar is a must-visit for music on a Sunday night but we also enjoyed the peace and calm of Gibbs Beach, which was only a few minutes walk away. For eating out, I would recommend Bombas, which is run by a lovely local family, right on the beach-front and is just a few minutes walk away.

James was really helpful during the whole process – booking was smooth and he was very prompt to reply.

We only had a week here and it was definitely too short! I would definitely recommend Driftwood villa and staying in this area of the island. I can’t wait to return!

Paradise found

  • 5 of 5

We have found our little bit of paradise at driftwood! Our first visit to Barbados and so the information in the villa on restaurants and places to see was very useful.Stunning villa and very helpful Julie ( who greeted us) and Monica who kept everywhere spotless. Many happy evenings in the pool and a fantastic Sunday eve at Mullins beach bar ( not to be missed) . New owner James has maintained the same superb standard that we have read about in previous reviews. Cant wait for a repeat visit!

12 Days of Bliss

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing to add to what's already been said. The house is wonderful and the service impeccable. Not to mention the location and value for money. Next time we return to Barbados. The first place we'll look to book is Driftwood.

Coast/Beach:

Driftwood is 200m from the lively Mullins Beach with it's popular beach bar and restaurant.

There is also a drinks/ice cream kiosk. Sunbeds with parasols are available and it is possible to arrange water sports and boat trips directly on the beach.

To the South of Mullins is the stunning Gibbs Beach which is great for a picnic and some peace and quiet.

Just North of Mullins are the beaches of Speightstown and Heywoods which are well worth visiting. To the south Reeds Bay and Alleynes Beach are both nearby.
