The Best Staniels Cay Experience
Property Managers, Booking process, Attention to all our needs, Friendly, helpful, accommodating … just like staying with friends.
You could not find a better location to spend a week in Staniels Cay if you were looking for a friendly, well equipped villa, with all the best amenities and a Superb host that offered all that you needed
The home was exactly as pictured but even more beautiful in person. Michelle and Gavin were so sweet and helpful throughout our stay. Everything was immaculately maintained and had everything we needed for our stay. Everyone we met was extremely nice and more than eager to assist us all over the island. Michelle even baked us homemade cookies for our boat outing one day. We could not be more pleased and would highly recommend the home, the location and of course Michelle and Gavin.
Back again for A piece of paradise!
We have returned here year after year to stay at Driftwood Beach cottage. It’s one of the most peaceful locations on the island. We rent a boat and golf carts and enjoy the setting of Driftwood. The house is always clean and well kept and located in a tucked away area of Staniel Cay. It’s just wonderful. Michelle and Gavin couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful. They made themselves available and even supplied a few baking ingredients for our one dinner we spend in during the week. These owners not only take good care of the property, but make sure to find people like Michelle and Gavin to take care of things. It’s a gem of a place and we look forward to returning. Our kids always bring friends along and we find new ways to create memories out of some of the same things each year. We make sure to use Sanchez as a guide. He is worth every penny and we are glad to call him family now. This place is a keeper!
The house was great. Perfect for our family and a wonderful location. Michelle and Gavin were so helpful. We loved every second of it!
Thank you so much Michelle and her partner for making our stay so enjoyable and comfortable. We truly enjoyed your hospitality and help from the moment we landed. The house was very comfortable, neat and clean. We had an amazing time and will definitely be back!!!!!
Beautiful and handy!
This is a great little protected spot that has easy access to everything. We rented a boat and were able to keep it at our dock and easily get in and out no matter what the tide was doing. Michelle and Gavin are great hosts and see if you can book Andy for a few nights of his great comfort food which is a great experience for all. Our kids loved Driftwood!
