Cottage
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

Thanks for the lovely review John. Just for future guests you most definitely can see the sea from the porch. From one angle it is a little obscured when seated,by a palm, which I will thin out today. Thanks for pointing this out.
