  • Home rental in Barbados.....

    "La Paloma. Perfect. Ten guys for a birthday celebration. Early November, 2016. La Paloma is great. Exactly as advertised. Five bedrooms. Huge dining area. Terrace off the dining area, overlooking the ocean. Extremely comfortable furniture. We spent just about all of our time on the terrace. Relaxing, talking, listening to the waves. Just a few feet from the house is a gate to the beach and ocean. Great swimming. Garden pool but we swam in the ocean most of the time. Home comes with four amazing staff. Chef, two maids, and an "outdoor" person who took care of the pool, kayaks, garden, etc. All friendly and helpful. With anything and everything. We were there for a week; out to restaurants for three dinner, the remainder of the meals at La Paloma. In the dining room....at a table on the terrace...or a table in the garden just off the ocean. House was clean, comfortable, plenty of towels, nice linens, etc. The cost divided by the ten of us was amazing."

  • Absolutely beautiful and serene!

    "I cannot give any bad reviews about anything for my trip! I am almost 50 and just getting thru the loss of my husband in an accident and still going thru surgeries (22 thus far). I took my 87 year old Mother. What an absolutely wonderful trip! The beach, the pool, the house, the service - On a scale of 1-10, 1 being the worse, I would give our trip a 10!!! I just cannot explain how helpful and courteous everyone was and how at home I even felt. It was as if the weight of the world was lifted off my shoulders and I could just breathe in absolute luxury!"

  • Stunning villa, fantastic location - we'll be back

    "Driftwood villa is simply stunning! We stayed here on our third trip to Barbados and it was our first staying at Driftwood. The location was fantastic, just a few minutes stroll to Mullins beach, with (in my opinion!) one of the very best beach bars on the island. The villa itself was spotless, extremely modern and well maintained. We’ve stayed in a few different properties on a similar budget but none have been as bright, well-kept and high quality as Driftwood. The open-plan, indoors/outdoors way of living that it enables with its huge folding patio doors was fantastic and we felt so relaxed and at home at the property. The kitchen is well-equipped if you want to eat at home rather than out all the time and there was a decent wifi connection, which was good for us who are self-employed and needed to do some work. The pool is a good size and we even saw monkeys in the garden while lazing about in the afternoons! Monica the cleaner was very thorough and attentive yet unimposing during her visit to give the place a spruce – she’s a great character to have a natter to about the island! We had a hire car and found all we needed within a short drive but there was also bus stops close by. Mullins Beach Bar is a must-visit for music on a Sunday night but we also enjoyed the peace and calm of Gibbs Beach, which was only a few minutes walk away. For eating out, I would recommend Bombas, which is run by a lovely local family, right on the beach-front and is just a few minutes walk away. James was really helpful during the whole process – booking was smooth and he was very prompt to reply. We only had a week here and it was definitely too short! I would definitely recommend Driftwood villa and staying in this area of the island. I can’t wait to return!"

  • holiday and wedding

    "Second year we have stayed here. Last year we got engaged in Barbados and this year we had our wedding in the lovely garden and pagoda which came with the apartment. From start to finish Barbara was fantastic, she took all the worry of a wedding abroad away. A fantastic day was had by us and all our friends who joined us. I would highly recommend this venue for anyone looking for a unique personal wedding. We are booking again for our anniversary next year. Many thanks Barbara."
