Very pretty interior designer´s house 100 yds to Freights bay - best beginner surfing spot in Barbados and close to Miami beach. A veranda surrounds the house overlooking the large tropical garden where a family of monkeys visit each morning!

The space

The house is built in a very pretty Colonial style and made of Greenheart tropical hardwood. It has polished wooden floors, ceiling fans in every room and a lovely large veranda overlooking the private garden which keeps the house cool on the hottest days.
The short walk to the beach (100yds) means the house is perfect for families with children as they can walk to the beach in a minute or two. If you get up early enough you can sit on the terrace and watch a small family of monkeys who visit the garden early each morning in the hope of finding a gifted banana or mango. .

Hopefully guests will love Driftwood as much as we do and treat it with care and respect. It is a beautiful large Caribbean wooden house, smoking only on the veranda.

Great house, close to the beach. All amenities provided, and felt very much like a home away from home. Relaxing garden and deck area. Dagny was helpful and so was Denise, the housekeeper. Things that weren't so great: the Wi-Fi signal was only useable in the dining area. No mosquito mesh outside of the bedroom windows, made our choice to not opt for paid air-conditioning quite irritating. Overall, highly recommended.

We had a wonderful time at Driftwood. The house itself was very clean when we arrived and it served as a great base for all of our travelling on the island. Barbados was our first time to the Caribbean, and most definitely won't be the last. We did have a couple of issues and cannot fault the professionalism and quality of care we received whilst they were dealt with. We would definitely come back!!!

This house was wonderful and so unique that we all felt like we are living like the locals. There were 4 of us total and enjoyed our time in Barbados. The back porch was delightful and we all took naps at some point. At night the breeze is just what you want. We suggest renting a car to explore the entire island and to go to some better beaches. Upon arrival the hosts made us feel welcome. We had a blast and couldn't have asked for a better time in Barbados. Thanks Dagny

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved staying at driftwood. Fully equipped for a nice stay and a short walk to Oistins for great food and bus/ZR connections. The garden and porch are even better than what the pictures show too! Didn't get a chance to surf due to the seaweed/low tides but will save that for another visit! I would absolutely recommend Driftwood to anyone staying in Barbados. Dagny and Margaret set us up with all the information we needed and we just had such a brilliant stay. So sad to leave!

We felt welcome, spent a wonderful time in this cozy, lovingly appointed house (apart from the nice interior decoration you find everything you need!) that made us feel like being at home... lush garden, fresh breeze, quiet neighborhood, one of barbados' nicest beaches in walking distance. enjoyable, beautiful, memorable, recommendable!

I am outgoing friendly and caring. I love to travel and meet people and spent a great part of my life (before I got married and had children!) travelling all over the world. I think airbnb´s site is great because staying with people who know and care about the area they live in is a fabulous way to get to know a new place. My homes are often full of lovely things but first and foremost they are comfortable and designed for fun, relaxing and sharing with family and friends.
