Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Enterprise - Driftwood
A large three bedroom house, 200 metres from the sea, in the Enterprise area
Driftwood is a pretty 3 bedroom Barbadian house, built in a colonial style and surrounded by a very lovely tropical garden with fruit trees including a huge mango tree which is visited by a family of monkeys each morning! Driftwood is 100yds from Freights bay, known as the best beginners surfing spot on the island. The house is also a few mins walk from Miami beach which are well loved by families as the white coral sands and gentle waves are perfect for swimming. There is also a great old bus on the beach which serves rum punch, soft drinks and delicious local snacks on picnic tables under the shady Casuarina trees. At Driftwood house there are polished wooden floors, a fully fitted kitchen, study/TV room and large living room with a beautiful wrap around veranda overlooking the garden. All the bedrooms are equipped with AC and have overhead ceiling fans and the house is made of a tropical hardwood called Greenheart which keeps the house cool on the hottest days.
There are three double bedrooms and two bathrooms, 1 en-suite. There is also great tv room/study with a sofa bed and chairs for watching movies and tv in the evenings. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes a large American style fridge with a crushed ice and cold water dispenser. At night sipping drinks on the verandah, listening to the tree frogs and looking at tropical garden in the twilight is a great experience and the early morning visit by the mango tree from the visiting family of monkeys is not to be missed!

About Dagny Bain
We are an English family originally from Barbados who have lived for many years in Portugal. We have two young sons who love returning to Barbados to surf, swim and spend time relaxing with friends and family. We like helping to make our visitors feel comfortable and at home, so we have a wonderful manager called Margaret, a Barbadian who has been in the tourist business for over thirty years who welcomes our guests to the house and makes sure they have everything they need for a fabulous holiday. She is a font of knowledge for the best places to swim and sightsee and tips on where to find great food and nightlife locally.
We take great pride in making sure that Driftwood is properly equipped and well managed so that our guests have a fabulous, stress free beach holiday and want to return over and over again.
Dagny Bain purchased this house in 2010
Why Dagny Bain chose Enterprise
Driftwood house is in a lovely unspoilt part of Barbados, close to the sea but in a quiet and safe residential area on the South coast. Dagny (wife and mother) grew up in Barbados and knows the island well - searching for the right property took some time but we knew as soon as we saw the house it was exactly what we were looking for - big enough for visiting members of family yet cosy enough as a romantic getaway for couples. Its close enough to the beach for children to walk there by themselves and the surfing spot at the bottom of the road in Freights bay keeps teenagers and young people happy for many hours.
What makes this house unique
A visiting family of monkeys comes for breakfast early most mornings, they sit on the stepping stones in the garden under the mango tree, to eat the bananas that hopefully you´ve left for them the night before...
The house is just 100yds from the sea and a short walk into Oistins town alongside the beautiful turquoise blue Caribbean sea
Guestbook comments from the owner
`Driftwood is one of the prettiest houses we´ve rented in Barbados, it is stylish and comfortable and we felt completely at home sitting on the verandah in the evenings. The garden with the huge mango tree is wonderful. A real gem.´
