About Carl Hendriks

I have worked in the hospitality industry for over 25 years. My great love, however, has been the area of Treasure Beach where I spent most of my childhood.

Carl Hendriks purchased this villa in 2000

Why Carl Hendriks chose Treasure Beach

In 2000 i saw this property and immediately felll in love with the peaceful space that surrounded me. I was immediately struck by the spectacular view of the ocean, and the Great Pedro bluff. The people of Great Bay,Treasure Beach have made it an even more exceptional experience with their generousity and warmth.

My greatest pleasure is to continue to enhance the villa and gardens.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far one of the best vacation spots we have ever been to. The house itself has a wonderful open living space design, with all of the bedrooms having a lovely View. The master bedroom has doors that open out to the veranda and beyond that is a beautiful yard and The View to the Caribbean Ocean. Each day and night we were Lowell to sleep and awakened by the waves crashing onto the beach. We had a wonderful time reading in the and relaxing in the different seating areas from The Veranda that reverses the back side of the house to the pool deck area to be hammock and gazebo like area that sits in an amazing Ocean Breeze near the property's edge.

Our children as well as ourselves had an amazing time splashing in the pool and floating about, exploring the beach both in front of the property as well as the nice Beach that is about a five-minute walk away either by Sand Dune or through the tide pools. The ocean water was amazing it was warm and great for body surfing.

Carl the owner, Marie, Wendy, Stacy, and Odain were family by the end of our stay. They took excellent care of us and the home. Everything was fresh and clean on a daily basis Murray did amazing meals, and helped us navigate grocery shopping in Black River. Through them we were able to learn about the great day and Treasure Beach communities both current and historical information. The neighborhood that we stayed in was very safe and comfortable the neighbors were nice our children love to seeing the goats and cows and adopted the dog Shortcakes as their own for two weeks.

Hands down no questions as I recommend this property and this owner again and again the girl and the staff were excellent they left nothing to be desired and we are looking forward to returning for our state next year. A bit of advice, and this is useful regardless of where you stay in on the island of Jamaica. Make sure to budget for food because it's very expensive on Island. It's not just expensive for turist it's expensive for everyone. Also if you don't Rent-A-Car that's fine just know that depending on the distance taxis May get pricey. That said it's easier and probably cheaper just to take the taxis, and I think everyone should experience a taxi ride Island if you are looking for other recent reviews for this property, they do exist you may have to check on TripAdvisor. Consider this property. We had an amazing time and it was the rest and relaxation of a lifetime thank you again Driftwood family!

Paradise by the Sea!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing vacation! This was my 7th trip to Jamaica...and the best yet! Driftwood Villa is an absolutely lovely home on a gorgeous property overlooking the sea. We spent much of our time floating in the pool, staring at the sea and great sunset views. This is a great place to completely chill out. There are day trips, etc. that can be made, but we took this opportunity to just relax. It's a very quiet, safe and serene location. The ladies who run the household, Marie and Wendy, are fantastic and made our stay just perfect! Marie made all of our favorite Jamaican foods: lobster, brown stew fish & curried goat - delicious! I can't wait to come back in 2014!
