  • Great new villa, amazing location, perfect island.

    "We stayed for 6 nights in February 2017. The villa is newly built and furnished to a very high standard. The kitchen has a large fridge freezer and a range style gas cooker. The air conditioning in the bedroom was very effective and the fan in the living area kept the house cool. The pool onsite is quite a bit bigger than the pictures indicate and it was warm enough in February for the family to use. The villa is situated very close to the Almond beach hotel which has an amazing beach. You can walk to the beach in a few minutes. The Heywood estate has a good mix of newish build houses and the locals are very friendly. Its a ten minute walk into Speightstown which has all the basic shopping you will need for your holiday. If you walk the other way on the main road you reach a beautiful Marina and its beach, carry on walking and you reach a rural part of the Island where the locals live in their beach shacks. There is a great shack there that does cheap food and drinks, mostly used by locals but very welcoming to tourists. They had 3 BBD banks beer and 9 BBD Spanish wine and also stocked snacks (the Fishcake sandwich was nice). We had great fun exploring the island on the Yellow "Reggae Reggae" buses. These are only 1USD person and we took them twice in to Bridgetown and once into Holetown. The yellow buses are an experience themselves with the loud music playing and Alton Towers style driving. The more reserved government blue buses are also available, however our only journey on one resulted in a breakdown! We spent about 100 USD on Taxi's to and from the airport and then only spent about 20 dollars on buses across the island. We had a small query when we were in the villa which John and Jan responded to immediately and quickly gave us the help we required. They were also very helpful in making sure we got to our villa, calling us at 10pm Barbados time (2am UK time) after our flight was delayed 4 hours. The proximity of the villa to the beach and also its closeness to the amenities means this will be our first choice villa when we return to Barbados."

  • 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!"

  • We had a great time

    "The location is perfect with 2 beaches very close and lots of places to eat within a mile or two. Speightstown is lively - especially the Little Bristol Bar on the waterfront which is great. We loved the yellow buses with music blaring. The pool apartment is comfortable and well maintained by Claudett who is very friendly. Nice to see monkeys helping themselves to mangos in the garden. The information provided by the owners was excellent and we enjoyed several of the suggested eating places. JuJus is great and we had a special meal at Cariba. Hope to stay longer next time. Pippa"
