About the Owner

We have spent 20+ years enjoying everything Barbados has to offer, and are very proud owners of Driftwood.

We will continue to maintain the property to the very high standards that guests have become used to and we are very happy that Housemanager, Julie, and Housekeeper, Monica, remain with us long-term too.

We live in the UK, but visit Barbados regularly and are sure that you will fall in love with both Barbados and Driftwood in the same way that we have.

If you have any questions at all regarding the house, the island, or the booking process, just click on 'Enquire Now' to contact us directly.

More detailed information and an FAQ section can be found on our website at: www.driftwoodbarbados.com

Best regards, and I hope you will enjoy a stay at Driftwood soon.

James Moy.

There is nothing to add to what's already been said. The house is wonderful and the service impeccable. Not to mention the location and value for money. Next time we return to Barbados. The first place we'll look to book is Driftwood.

Perfect Mullins Beach House

  • 5 of 5

I can't add much more to the other excellent reviews of Driftwood, other than to say that we found this to be quite simply the perfect beach house. It really was even better than we hoped for based on the pictures and descriptions.

Driftwood is a beautiful house, perfectly clean, maintained and equipped. The 3 large bedrooms and 4th bedroom/den are perfect for a large or extended family or friends. The open kitchen is clean, bright and filled with everything we needed and more. We spent wonderful evenings relaxing by the pool and in the covered patio/dining area, which opens up to the house with elegant folding doors - indoor/outdoor living at its best!

All this, with an easy three minute walk to Mullins beach with its outstanding bar, restaurant, watersports and snack bar. We only hope Driftwood doesn't become so popular that it's not available next time we want to visit!

Driftwood is absolutely Perfect!! After 10 years of visiting Barbados we have never found a house so affordably beautiful. Monica keeps everything immaculate and manages that without being intrusive. The pool and gardens are a pleasure to be in. We had 14 days of pure bliss and have already booked for next year! Being hoteliers we are naturally very fussy and this is the first property we have returned to. The beds are comfy as is the wonderful indoor/outdoor seating and with the high ceilings and fantastic fans we didn't need the air-con at all. Great fridge/freezer with an ever supply of ice cubes and ice cold water. All of the bedrooms are a lovely size and the whole house feels very spacious and cool. Driftwood feels very safe and secure and is in one of the most beautiful areas of Barbados with Mullins beach bar a 2 minute walk away as well as the bus route for those that don't want a car. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this property and although we always look forward to our January holiday it is even more exciting to know that we are coming back here :-)

Stay at Driftwood

  • 5 of 5

Firstly I must say that Robin, the owner of Driftwood, has built a fantastic looking property. The description of the house is spot on and it looks even better. The house is in a quiet, lovely location not far from Mullins beach and near to Speightown where you find Banks, supermarket and shops.

On arrival at Driftwood we where met by a lovely young lady called Julie, as promised, she showed us everything we needed to know about the house. We were introduced to Monica the Housekeeper who keeps the house looking immaculate inside and out. Every room in the house was spotless even the garage. The Gardener keeps grounds immaculate.The owner has very thoughtfully provided everything you could need for a self-catering holiday which makes it feel like a home away from home

We have stayed at several properties in Barbados over the years and Driftwood is top of our list, the house was perfect for me and my family of 4 adults in every way. I can not fault Driftwood and would recommend this lovely house to anyone.

There is also a drinks/ice cream kiosk. Sunbeds with parasols are available and it is possible to arrange water sports and boat trips directly on the beach.

To the South of Mullins is the stunning Gibbs Beach which has no facilities but is great for a picnic and some peace and quiet.

Just North of Mullins are the beaches of Speightstown and Heywoods which are well worth visiting. To the south Reeds Bay and Alleynes Beach are both nearby.
