Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great being in Thredbo itself in a beautiful apartment with great views to the mountains with snow. A cute little separate loft upstairs and all of the bits in pieces provided within the apartment, you could possiblly need that made our stay perfect. Will definately be back! Thanks Susie.

Great position, cosy, top view

  • 4 of 5

Very cosy, well equipped, comfortable (but not the double bed upstairs, just too firm!), perfect view, location convenient to chairlift and shops (few mins walk).

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback and I'm sorry that you found the bed too firm! I will buy a thicker fleece mattress protector which will make it feel a bit softer! S

Great Location, excellent standard

  • 5 of 5

Driftwood by the Snow is an excellent place to stay on your trip to Thredbo. Views of the moutain and located in a quiet but close part of the village. Nicely decorated and with good inclusions of washer, dryer, ski locker, Foxtel TV; meant that it had the little extras to make the stay pleasant. Excellent restaurant the "burger bar" had great quality food virtually at the door.

Great apartment for family of 4

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Driftwood for 5 nights during the school holiday in July. When we arrived, the apartment was spotless and everything was provided for. The location is fantastic and is within walking distance to the village. The free shuttle is practically at the front door and there is a great burger place just 2 minutes walk from the apartment. We will definitely stay here again next year.
