The Villa was outstanding and the surrounding gardens would do any botanical garden proud. The owners are lovely people who went out of their way to greet us and ensure we were comfortable. Everything about the place is top class. Highly recommended.
Comfortable, welcoming, relaxing.
We had high expectations already from reading other reviews but staying at John and Marina's still exceeded them! I can't eat anything with gluten and John and Marina provided gluten free bread and jams and even made a dinner reservation that would cater for my dietary needs. Very thoughtful. Their garden is magnificent and the feeling of relaxation and peace from being around it has to be experienced. The place is incredibly clean. It is a very short walk to the beach and you can hear the ocean at night. We loved our BBQs outside with the garden and birds around us. John and Marina's is a really special find and we highly recommend it!
The Zen Garden Suite
What a beautiful place! Awesome little touches like supplying breakfast items, choccies and a selection of local beverages. Two minutes walk from the beach and what a beach it was! Absolutely mesmerising! Gardens are stunning and so relaxing, just what we needed! Milo loved it and neither of us wanted to leave 🙂 Thanks for an awesome weekend!

The Zen Garden Suite: Driftwood Villa Scotts Head
John and Marina have created a beautiful tranquil space, just minutes from the beach. I could go to sleep with the sound of waves crashing. It doesn’t get much better.
The Zen Garden Suite
Such a beautiful place to getaway, felt like we were in Bali.
So tasteful and peaceful, attention to detail amazing and honestly just perfect. So grateful for the experience. Best yet, well done to John and Marina! What a labour of love. We will definitely stay again.

The Zen Suite was just perfect. Loved all the facilities and top class features. John and Marina have thought of everything you need in a self contained place to stay. Really loved the gardens and the passion for the development of beautiful spaces. Thanks so much.

My husband and I along with my cousins from NZ recently spent two nights at Driftwood and we cannot speak more highly of these amazing villas, beautifully appointed and perfectly located to Stunning Scotts Head beach. Our hosts were very welcoming and accommodating to any needs though have to,say everything was spot on. If you are looking for a tranquil stop over while traveling or a few days bliss by the beach then Driftwood Villas is the perfect place. We will all be back - cheers Bruce Di John and Pam
We are only sorry we were able to stay one night.
John and Marina have done an amazing job here , we were welcomed warmly then left alone to do our own thing .
Everything we needed was provided and we slept in a very comfortable bed dozing off to the sound of the waves.
Hopefully next time we can stay longer

Stayed in the Zen Garden Suite, outdoor shower (with hot water) was divine. The suite has everything you need and the extra touches John and Marina provide are wonderful. Right by the beach, beautiful and well kept garden - we didn't want to leave.
Perfect getaway, loved listening to the sounds of the ocean at night, relaxing tranquil gardens and great accomodation. Thank you John and Marina.
George and Dora
We had such a wonderful night staying at Driftwood on our way up the coast that we rearranged our schedule so that we could stay again on our way home! Beautiful location, accommodation of the highest standard and the friendliest and most helpful of welcomes. We will happily stay again.
Kerry and Steve
Loved it. Great place to chill and recharge batteries. Waves are pretty good too.
wonderful place lovely people
My partner and I were lucky enough to spend a couple of nights in the Ketuk suite. It was the perfect getaway to disconnect. The Ketuk suite had everything you could possibly need... fast wifi, Sheridan towels and bedding, a day bed, breakfast goodies, a tv and a gorgeous courtyard. The suite is only moments from the beach with less than a 5 minute walk. John and Marina were lovely host and I would defiantly recommend this spot if you are thinking of going to Scotts head.
Big Bonus is the Ketuk Suite is dog friendly.
Perfection!! Stunningly beautiful gardens & villa. John & Marina are friendly & welcoming hosts who truly care about providing a 'zen' beach experience. This was our best Airbnb experience so far!!

This is simply one of the best Air BnB we experienced with my husband. Beautiful villa, the decoration in Balinese style is incredible. Absolutely clean and comfortable. You feel relaxed and home the second you step in. Absolutely anything you need and a lot of snacks / breakfast and drinks are provided this is a very warm welcome for the guests ! This location is incredible !!! Just 50m walking distance from this incredible, beautiful and wild beach. We wished we could stay forever ! Special note for the outdoor shower. Amazing ! Thanks John and Marina for hosting us in this awesome villa.
Coco & Jay
Wow! What an amazing Airbnb experience. John and Marina have put so much care, style and warmth into the Ketuk suite and their home. Our highlights would have to be the warm outdoor shower (amazing!!) and the attention to detail- they've gone above and beyond to make sure their guests have a well stocked pantry and little extras throughout the suite. We felt so welcome from the very second we arrived (even with our children in tow) The gardens surrounds are a true labour of their love and nurture, our son LOVED exploring the incredible rock formation in which the house is set. Location was perfect with the sound of the waves lapping through the night and the birds singing all day. John and Marina, once again thank you for allowing us into your little splice of paradise- we look forward to staying again soon!
Wow, this is THE place! Amazingly clean, bright studio about 30m from the water's edge. The owners are just wonderful too. Hard to recommend this highly enough. We're going back!
Wow! Just WOW! Secluded, moden, quality with so much light and air and the sound of the ocean while you sleep! My new husband and I left after our wedding in victoria and began slowly making our way up the east coast to Brisbane. On our 4th night we were fortunate enough to find this little gem! The studio is crisp, modern and well planned with huge concertina doors that open out on to a timber deck. Every aspect from the studio over looks intersting landscape and beautiful character-filled trees which cling to a striking slate rock face. The deck area has a cute outdoor setting for 2, a gorgeous red umbrella and even a hot and cold outdoor shower fashioned of exposed copper pipes. The outdoor shower is perfect for washing off the sand after a swim or walk along the incredible beach (just meters from the door)!
We plan to return here every year for our anniversary! It was magical! Thank you!!!
We had a fantastic experience staying in the zen room for a long weekend. Marina and John are wonderful relaxed hosts; they stock the pantry withe most beautiful produce. The vista from the balcony is stunning; and the beach is a stones throw away. We will definitely be back!
We stayed at Driftwood in the Zen Room on the weekend of 15 July. It was absolutely gorgeous, John and Marina are excellent hosts and make sure that you have absolutely everything you need. The location is amazing, right behind the dunes and the beautiful Scott's Head Beach.
Perfect getaway, specially if your travelling from round Sydney way to Brisbane or the Gold Coast (half way). Beautifully sculpted surroundings , comfortable accomodation and virtually right on the beach. John & Marina are very welcoming & easy going. We'll be back.
Hi John, Just a quick note to say many thanks for our stay. Very much enjoyed ourselves. We are sure to visit again.
