A hely
Driftwood offers stunning views of the lagoon, beautiful landscaped edible gardens, snorkelling at your doorstep and a home complete with designer furniture, a western kitchen, wood fired pizza oven and bathrooms that make you feel like you are showering under a jungle waterfall. Combining western standards in design with Solomon island features.

Driftwood has been designed with comfort and relaxation in mind and is completely screened for protection from insects. It is elevated to capture the sea breeze and nestled in the jungle with stunning views of the surrounding pristine lagoon, the building was erected using natural materials and over 70% of fallen trees; hence the name Driftwood.

We invite you to come and relax and enjoy this pristine wilderness or enjoy spontaneous adventures of the hunter gatherer and learn how to free dive, hunt, cook your catch with our fresh garden ingredients. Have canoe adventures with our village guides; learn how to create a masterpiece with fallen ancient timbers; or go hiking up rapids to waterfalls.

Mouth-watering, memorable meals are our specialty. Three gourmet meals are served in buffet style and are included in the price. Our chefs have been trained by award-winning yacht chef Kdn Lyne. He created the menu together with the local women of Gatokoa Island to ensure they developed meals that showcase the best of Solomon Islander dishes combined with a modern twist. We also have visiting chefs from the Good Food Brotherhood from Bali who come every year and help update the menu. We are told that our menu is one of the best meals in the country by many expats that visit us.

We offer an all-inclusive package $200 per person per night (min stay required)
It includes:
*Twin or queen bed rooms with private en-suite
*Three meals per day including daily freshly caught fish, lobster, *fresh juices, coffee, tea and unlimited coconuts.
*Boat transfers return to Seghe airport (value $600 AUD return per boat)
*Two 2-3-hour boat adventures per day (value $250 AUD per boat)
*Canoe ride or daily land adventure*Unlimited use of ocean equipment - kayak, SUP, snorkel gear
*Private boat driver, village guide, a private cook, house-keeper and full laundry service.

We have three private rooms (each sleep 2 people) all with en-suites OR you can book the entire house (sleeps up to 7 people).

Two guest rooms contain a queen bed that can be split into two singles (ocean view or jungle view). The third room is a loft room with a balcony on the roof boasting 360 degree panoramic views. It has a double bed and a single day bed.

Bathrooms for each room are built to Australian standards. Water for the bathrooms and house is sourced from a clean local spring. They are outdoor jungle bathrooms designed with privacy.

The kitchen is purpose built complete with a large bench top and modern four burner cooker to accommodate guests who love their food. We have great chefs but you are also welcome to cook your own fish and feasts from time to time with the help of our staff if that’s your passion. Guests also have access to the herb and vegetable garden just outside our kitchen.

The property is powered with solar energy and boosted with a generator when required. Australian power sockets are available to charge small electronic devices.

Driftwood staff are available to show you around the village, or guide walks in the jungle or along the coast. This is included in the package. The guides can take you
for canoe rides, for jungle walks into the village, snorkeling, night diving or where ever you would like to go. They are very curious about the outside world and love to
share stories. You will have the opportunity for cultural immerse as much as you wish. This is the true spirit of the Driftwood experience from the very moment you
arrive.

A short 5 min walk below is our house reef where you can snorkel, spearfish or use the SUP or Kayak. We also offer boat trips to three nearby uninhabited islands where we offer dives through underwater caves, snorkelling through the coral gardens and a variety of freediving and spearfishing sites to visit every day for the beginner and the advanced. These activities are included in our packages. If you would like to create your own carving or weaving masterpiece there are workshops available with the world renown Morovo lagoon woodcarvers, for very reasonable prices.

For the times that you would like to take a break from lagoon adventure, the house has a large wrap around verandah and landscaped outdoor sitting areas. This design provides even more spaces to soak up the outdoors, learn how to weave, carve, cook, make coconut oil or simply share stories with the locals.

There is a walking path all the way to Kavolavata village and along to Peava village and you can go for walks and explore the beautiful island. You can also join locals for volleyball and soccer in the afternoons and attend Sabbath celebrations with members of the Driftwood family.

The kitchen is purpose designed with a large bench top and modern four burner cooker to accommodate guests who love cooking and eating. There is a large dining table that can accommodate 10 guests and plenty of crockery and glassware to host dinner party’s day after day.

Activities

Driftwood House is located on Gatokae Island – which is the gateway to this extraordinary lagoon. It has a 100-foot drop off right in front of the property with prolific sea life everywhere you dive.The diversity of fish and coral is arguably second to none. Many of the worldʼs top marine biologists come here to study and discover new species of fish because of the diverse microclimates underwater here.
If you would like to participate in boating, diving or fishing adventures we organise plenty and can send you through a price list.

For the times that you would like to take a break from lagoon adventure, the house has a large wrap around verandah and landscaped outdoor sitting areas designed to provide even more spaces to soak up the outdoors, learn how to weave, carve, learn traditional cooking, make coconut oil or simply share stories with the locals.

Mobile/internet reception: at this point in time there is no mobile reception or internet coverage available at the house or on the island, which is the reason many people choose to come here – time to unplug from online media and get in touch with what’s really important in life!! If you need to get access, there are places on the island that receive better reception (by boat or further up the hill)

Egyéb fontos dolgok
Your backyard will be all things nautical; from spear fishing to free diving, surfing to kayaking, the ocean really will be your oyster. You can immerse yourself in the cultural village life meeting the locals learning their crafts, trying your hand at woodworking and basketweaving. You will be eating the wholefoods that are grown and caught at your doorstep.

If you would like to stay for 7 days or more we can offer you an all inclusive package price to save money on boat transfers, boat hire and other activities.

Nggatokae Island, Western Province, Salamon-szigetek

The house is located where the rainforest meets the sea. There are coral gardens 2 minutes from your doorstep.

Driftwood house is located in a peaceful location just a short 10 minute walk from the main village. The house has two neighbours that are further up the ridge and a shared pathway to the lagoon. It is completely up to you how much interaction you would like with our neighbours and friends from the village. They respect your privacy and desire for peace and quiet and are also very willing to interact and share their skills and love of island life with you.

Solomon Islanders are our teachers and we respect their knowledge and wisdom of their land. They have survived here with very little influences of Western civilisation and it’s important that guests who come here interested in their culture and value their unique way of living
