“We have the most wonderful stay with Karen and Martyn at their stunning home. They and their family are the perfect hosts sharing all the tips of the best things to see and do enabling us to get relaxing all the quicker. The property was spotless and the view from the pool is simply stunning and hard to pull yourself away from. They are located away from the main busy tourist areas and it is easy to find a peaceful beach not flooded with cruise ship passengers on a day trip. Our hosts could not do enough tp help us and we can strongly recommend a stay with them....this was our second swap with them as we loved it so much the first time. Thanks to your all in beautiful Antigua for hosting us so well and making yet another perfect holiday...we look forward to seeing you soon here. Andrew, Sarah, Annabel and William. ”

“Wow wow wow - what a destination! Thank you so much for the most wonderful holiday...it was our first swap outside the UK and it far exceeded our expectations in terms of: - your beautiful home so well equipped with everything we could need. It was also perfect for days just relaxing at the villa or by the pool - your communication before and during our stay really helped to ensure we could really make the most of our holiday whether it was to help with our car hire or recommending the best beaches for our needs on the island. - the island itself was perfect for our wishes, I have visit several other islands of the WI's and Antigua's laid back, less developed charm is perfect. So many beaches to visit, many offering different things in terms of snorkelling, swimming, shade and peace! We are looking forward to hosting you and your grandchildren next month. The is only one problem we have....trying to find another destination that comes anywhere close to the perfection of your home! Our children just keep asking if they can come back...hopefully another swap one day in the future and we can. Thank you once again for the most wonderful holiday. ”
“We had an amazing time at Karen and Simon’s incredible villa. When we arrived we were immediately made to feel very welcome by Karen, as she showed us around her beautiful home. Her daughter and her family next door were so helpful and kind. Antigua is the most beautiful place I have ever visited and Karen’s house was the perfect base from which to explore. We spent our days lazing around the pool and visiting amazing beaches. The house itself is beautifully decorated with lovely attention to detail, the bedrooms are massive and the bathrooms are gorgeous. Birds fly in and out of the light and open house and the table out on the terrace is the perfect spot for food and drinks. One morning we borrowed Karen’s kiyaks and explored the nearby coast and we saw a massive orange star fish. We also rented a car and explored the island. Thank you so much Karen and Simon! We would definitely recommend staying at Driftwood villa. ”
“We had a magnificent trip to Martyn & Karen's house in Antigua in February 2016! The location is excellent being close to English Harbour (but not too close) where there are plenty of bars and restaurants plus much more....Their beautiful, light & airy Caribbean home could not have been in a more beautiful spot with great views down to the water...paradise! Martyn and Karen were also extremely helpful with information ahead of and during our visit - we had a great time there and would not hesitate in heading back there again (if they will have us)!! Thanks again both!”
“We had a wonderful stay at Karen and Martins house. The place is beautiful, clean and extremely comfortable. The location is stunning and Karen and Martin are the perfect hosts.”
