Beautiful Cottage w/beach and Dock!
Can’t say enough of this beautiful Cottage! Everything we wished for. It had a great dock for our boat. A beautiful beach literally 10 footsteps from front door. My 84 yr old mother would swim everyday there!!! She truly enjoyed it😊 The Cottage was absolutely beautiful, upgraded, cozy and very clean. The caretakers were right next door in case we needed anything. Very nice, friendly and informative couple. They gave us our privacy, so we didn’t even know they were there.
We will highly recommend this beautiful house. It has a little bit of everything for everyone in your family.
We will definitely stay here again!
Perfect place to stay in Staniel
Driftwood Cottage is even nicer than shown in the pictures. Very clean, good AC, well stocked, and personal beach/cove is perfect for a quick dip. Very convenient by boat to all of the popular spots...just a 5 minute ride out of the channel. Michelle and Gavin are close by if you need them and very accommodating with requests. We'll be back for sure.
Wonderful family vacation!
Our stay at Driftwood Cottage was wonderful! Would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet vacation spot. It was the perfect size for our family of five. The house was very clean and comfortable. The private beach area was a great place to lounge and relax. It was an easy drive to the stores and yacht club with a golf cart. We stayed very busy with plenty of activities to do on and around this beautiful island. Michelle and Gavin were great hosts and available to help with all our needs. Definitely worth a five star review and hopefully we will be able to vacation here again!!
