Holiday Rental House
Driftwood is a self contained Caribbean cottage set a few yards from Laborie's beautiful beach. It has everything you want for a relaxing holiday. Many of the features in the cottage originate from an original cottage that was located on the other side of Laborie Bay. It has a large open plan bedroom with a wonderfully comfortable antique queen size bed, a roomy sitting area, a large, sunny bathroom and a fully equipped separate kitchen. The large patio is a perfect place to have breakfast or chill drinking your Piton beer at the end of the day, watching village life on the beach. Driftwood offers everything you are looking for if you want to get a taste of real Caribbean life. Laborie is a unique fishing village.

The people are very friendly and it is very safe to walk around any time of the day or evening. We will be happy to show you the village when you arrive, so you can have the freedom to do what you want while you are here. We have some friendly, mature rescue dogs that live in our garden across the road from the cottage. They love meeting new people and getting a fuss from them!More

Interaction with guests
We hand you the keys and make sure that you have everything you need for a relaxing, well deserved holiday. We are always around so are available for any questions or for just a chat! We have an outdoor kitchen and eating area that you can use for meals and celebrating special occasions. Having Lincon cook you a lobster meal during lobster season (March to end of August) is a truly memorable experience!

We were so glad we went here to enjoy the atmosphere of the ethnic fishing village and not the imported hospitality of the expensive imported resorts. We were able to interact with the local people and the hosts were most helpful and informative. The beach...More
