The 2 two bedroom Driftwood Apartments (4*) are stunningly located on the waterâ€™s edge of Hoopers Bay, one of the Bahamas most beautiful beaches. They offer luxury flexible accommodation for 2-4 in each of two apartments; each offers double bedrooms with en-suite. This flexibility means you can rent either apartment for 2-4 guests, or both for up to 8 guests. To ensure your total privacy, we will not rent both apartments at the same time to guests not part of the same group. The apartments are one above the other, and benefit from all modern amenities. Both offer balconies overlooking the beautiful bay with its stunning sunsets and share a private outside sundeck. Driftwood is the perfect place for relaxing and swimming from your own private beach, with lots of other things to do: beach combing, wildlife, historical and cultural places of interest. Hoopers Bay is shallow, always calm, perfect for swimming (especially for children), protected from winds and yet offers amazing snorkelling.
Accommodation: The architect designed apartments are one above the other, and benefit from all modern amenities. They are fully air conditioned, spacious and luxuriously appointed. Both apartments offer balconies overlooking the beautiful bay with its stunning sunsets.
Each Apartment comprises the following:
2 Bedrooms, both en suite:
