Some comments from our guests

We left this morning after a fantastic stay -- your place is so nicely fitted out, it was a pleasure to wake up each morning... we would have had little trouble never leaving the house if the weather had dictated it. A little palace by the water!

"What a perfect place to relax, enjoy a glass of wine on the deck and marvel at the visiting echidna on the lawn. Thank you Virginia, for providing a holiday house with such a beautiful feel; from the huge, light-filled bedroom to the kitchen filled with everything you could possibly need to cook up a storm, it really is a little slice of Conjola heaven. We are counting the months until we can come back again.....and the dogs are glaring at us for dragging them away and bringing them back home."

"The moment we entered we were struck by the beautiful decor, and the fantastic view looking directly over the lake. The ambiance of both the house and local area creates an environment of relaxation -- we explored the local town and spent time at the beach, only a few minutes away. We hope to return, thank you."

I first came across Driftwood in a divine moment of serendipity when the nearby hotel I'd stayed in previously turned out to be full. After a hectic few months in London I was looking for a bolt hole far away from the pressures of life, close enough to nature to enjoy its serenity but not so close that it crawls all over you. Driftwood is a two-bedroom holiday cottage on the shores of Lake Conjola, on the south coast of New South Wales. It's a fair old drive from Sydney, but there wasn't a shred of doubt in my mind we'd taken the right decision to spend a few days chilling here. We spent hours on end mesmerised by the stillness of the place, with the only sounds coming from fish jumping out of the lake and wild parroquets. Provided you've bought your own food, the place has everything you could possibly need - including a few thoughtfully provided last minute kitchen ingredients that you've likely forgotten. The hosts are even considerate enough to leave a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge awaiting your arrival. The surrounding area boasts some beautiful parkland and some stunning beaches (mind the rip tide and sharks) just a 10 minute drive away. The nearest big town, Ulladulla, lives up to the second part of its name, but heck if we'd wanted city lights we would've opted for Sydney or Melbourne. This is a real find and somewhere we'll be happy to return to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a lovely stay! After such a busy year planning our wedding we had such a relaxing time here after the big day. It was the perfect location to sit back and relax by the fire, do some fishing, have a wine on the deck while taking in the beautiful views and enjoy each other's company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Relaxation Driftwood is a very special cottage in a magnificent spot. Our time at Driftwood has been one of the most relaxing and memorable experiences we have had in our 27 years of wedding anniversary holidays. Thank you David and Virginia for sharing your wonderful family home. It is a delight to feel the old character and charm of the house maintained in it's stylish and comfortable interior. We will return, again and again and again. Polly and Steve Ball

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Driftwood is among the top few great holiday houses we've stayed in. David and Virginia - you have decorated the cottage with all anyone could ever need for a relaxing break in a gorgeous setting, directly overlooking the lake. The cottage's artistic flair coupled with all the thoughtful options on offer such as the DVD, CD and book collections, pashminas, throws, bath robes, cooking utensils, coffee machine, bird and marsupial life made it a joy for us. The setting invites relaxation and reflection - so thanks for providing the opportunity to catch up on reading and thinking, sometimes by the open fire and to browse the Milton shops. We will certainly be back.
