Reviews for Driftwood Studios
Marvelous and very tranquil destination. I can really recommend this place to any person who need a relaxing weekend in nature.
Absolutely Beautiful food for your soul
Very neat and peacefull
Peaceful and beautiful
Incredible location with unique experiences and wildlife. The tree house is a must. Amazing hosts and hospitality. An instant favourite.
Driftwood is a magical place nested adjacent to one of South Africa's precious reserves. We stayed here while doing ecological work at Kwelera and in addition to a comfortable stay and beautiful surroundings George and Claire shared fascinating insights to the dunes and the historical and archaeological value of the area and it proved to be a much richer experience because of this. We stayed at Raku Cottage which was the perfect place for us to work together but also have our privacy when we needed. Recycling and composting is also encouraged, and this was greatly appreciated.
I stayed in the treehouse and it was really fantastic. Well set up to be comfortable and yet still not interfere with one's appreciation of the surrounding natural beauty. George and Claire are great hosts. Will definitely stay with them again if I'm in the area. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much Claire this was awesome staying there. Louise
We spent a delightful two days at Driftwood Studios. It is a quiet and secluded place with a beautiful view from the bed- and bathroom, nestled in the trees. There is a lovely little braai area and the chickens wandering around adds to its charm. Meticulous attention to detail and a well-equipped kitchen made for a lovely stay. The decor is quirky and interesting and surprises lurk in every nook and cranny. Driftwood Studios is highly recommended; I would have loved to be able to stay longer.
We had a great time.
We spent five nights here between christmas and New Year. The accommodation is great and the beach is a short walk away. The surrounding bush is stunning. The owners live on site and security does not seem to be an issue. They are friendly and willing to assist to make your stay an enjoyable one.
