About Driftwood Studios

Relax in one of two hand-built cottages equipped to a high standard and located in the grounds of Driftwood Sculpture Studios, facing the Kwelera Coastal Nature Reserve, with the secluded beach just a short walk away. Children have the whole grounds to explore, vervet monkeys to imitate, a sandpit and slide, chickens they can feed, and the chance to make friends with two other resident monkeys, Angus and Anna.

Driftwood Cottage is a unique thatched tree house furnished with a queen-size bed and, if required, two comfy fold down beds for children. The unit features a bath and toilet upstairs, as well as a deck off the first floor bedroom in the trees. Enjoy a shower amid the tall flowering ginger. Guests are free to self-cater in the fully-equipped kitchen/diner downstairs, outside in the leafy courtyard, or enjoy star gazing from the adjacent braai area.

Recently extended to provide a second double bedroom and larger lounge/diner/kitchen with concrete worktops and a gas hob. Raku Cottage has two shower en-suite double rooms, Raku and Strandloper. Extra beds for children can be added or a twin for a double bed. There is also a single day bed in the lounge. A private cottage tucked away in the indigenous forest, a short walk on a paved path from the off-street parking.

Staying at Driftwood Studios will be a delight for birdwatchers, anglers, and surfers, safe and fun for children, and ideal for an artists or writers retreat. The beach is part of the Standloper Trail and has rock pools, shells, and of course driftwood.

Private parking areas and paths lead to each cottage. George and Claire will be on hand to help you make your stay a memorable and enjoyable one.

Beach: Take a five-minute walk on a quiet gravel road or take the winding forest path to a great fishing and surf spot.

          We loved the ambience of the garden, the clutter of sneezewood and driftwood reincarnated dinosaur. Claire has so much respect for life.....even allowing one of her free range hens to nestle on the day sofa. And the rolling rocks set into motion by the waves on the sandless beach was loud, yet soothing.

          Claire was so generous and her hospitality knew no bounds. The space was comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. An added bonus was the lovely grounds and play place that our little one could enjoy as well. Very close to a beautiful beach. Absolutely recommend!

          Fantastic getaway if you’re after rest and relaxation, we loved the outdoor shower and the feeling of staying “up in a tree”. Claire is a great host! Pebble beach has super rock pools and loads of driftwood and other momento’s to remind you of your getaway.
