We absolutely loved this cottage! It’s all true .... everything the previous guests say about it. Driftwood Cottage is a sweet historic building, lovingly decorated in Antiguan summer blue, with an elegant antique bed, handmade lamps and lots of nice touches such as fish soap-dishes. Even the crockery is arty!
You wake to the sun streaming in and the sound of birds all around you, with a view of leafy gardens and flowering trees, and your own swimming pool right there to jump into. The hosts are delightful, Antigua is great fun, the beaches are fabulous ... and we never wanted to leave!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We really enjoyed having you visit our cottage and Antigua, and so happy that Driftwood Cottage met all your expectations... You will have to come back and explore the rest of places you did not have time to visit! Lots more beaches!

Wonderful and generous hosts
We had a fabulous stay at Driftwood Cottage and Sarah is just about the best host ever! Great location and beautiful grounds -the birds visiting the terrace were a delight ! Stay here if you are visiting the island.
Thank you for your kind words. We always try to make sure our guests have the very best experience whilst in Antigua... while providing a peaceful, comfortable “home base”.
We look forwards to seeing you back here again!

A little piece of paradise!
We had a lovely 2 weeks staying in John and Sarah's little piece of paradise and echo the previous reviewers' positive comments. The cottage has all you need for your stay, and the large pool with its new comfortable loungers is the icing on the cake. Accessibility is good and renting a car gave us the flexibility to go out to explore, go to a beach or just get the supplies in. The dogs soon get to know you, initially at the smell of food...but soon end up spending their day with you snoozing on the porch. We are not dog owners, but they were the unexpected entertainment of our stay. Sarah and John are great hosts, checking in regularly to see that everything is okay but give you plenty of space to enjoy the peace and tranquility of their beautiful property. We plan to return!
This was a return visit and as I've said before it always feels like coming home. Everything about this cottage is stunning - the wrap around terrace which gives the cottage such a feeling of space, the incredible gardens, lovingly cared for and always something to wonder at (this year orchids growing from the palms!), the gorgeous hounds who are gentle and affectionate, the comfortable (enormous) bed from where you listen to the gentle song of birds in the morning, the welcoming pool (gorgeous to dip into when you want to cool down a little) and of course, the wonderful hosts, Sarah and John.
You know that these hosts really want you to enjoy your stay and they will do everything to ensure you have the best time. It never feels that you are bothering them if you need advice and they know the Island so well.
I warn you, it takes a good while to return to your normal routine on your return home as you will be sooooo relaxed! I can't wait until next year's visit!
Ooooooooh what lovely words. Thank you both, we always
look forwards to your visits! I am so happy that our cottage feels like"coming home", we do try and make it so...

Perfect holiday cottage
We booked Driftwood Cottage because of the wonderful reviews, and were not disappointed. They are all true! We spent hours watching the different birds feeding in the beautiful lush gardens which Sarah has created. She and John are charming hosts and are very helpful in everything from where to shop, booking restaurants and the best way to navigate the local roads.
We enjoyed our two weeks and will certainly return. A magical place.
Thank you both for such very kind words. We were delighted to have you stay with us and help you make the most of our beautiful island. John and I always try to ensure all our guests have the best possible experience in Antigua, whether it is finding deserted beaches, the best place to snorkel, restaurants to suit etc... We look forward to welcoming you back again before too long

Perfect relaxing holiday!
This was a true oasis away from touristy hustle and bustle! The beautiful grounds, pool and cottage were perfect.
The pool is beautiful and long enough to swim lengths. The grounds are lovely and large enough to roam and appreciate the nature and wildlife.
John and Sarah were the perfect hosts, providing us with information but not the least bit intrusive.
The cottage was very well equipped. The bed was comfortable, lots of hot water and facilities for cooking. We brought oatmeal and cans of salmon with us. Two very good grocery stores close by Epicurean and YPZ Trading. Food is very expensive on the Island but we cooked all of our meals at the cottage. If you eat local with rice, beans, chicken and fish it is not too outrageous. We enjoyed an excellent meal out at Le Bistro. John made reservations for us, which you definitely needed. Very good food!
Thank you Sarah and John for a wonderful stay!
Thank you both for your lovely words, and we are so very happy that you enjoyed your holiday. We didn't realize how many species of butterflies we had in the garden until you told us...thank you! Hopefully we will be able to welcome you back here before too long! Sarah & John
