I cannot say enough about the wonderful hosts of the driftwood b&b! The accommodation was spotlessly clean, large and very tastefully decorated. The bathroom had a wonderful rainwater shower! The breakfast was everything you could want and more. But what stood out the most was the hosts willingness and eagerness to help us organise some of the activities we wanted to do, which included a skydive over Great Barrier Reef onto mission beach and he managed to book us a cracking deal sailing around the Whitsunday Islands for three days which was amazing! We are half way through our travels for 7 weeks from cairns to Sydney and out of the 8 accommodations we have stayed in so far the Driftwood B&B experience was the best by far! Well done Jim and Eve just keep on doing what you're doing!

As soon as you drive up to Driftwood B & B it's like coming home. The house is beautifully situated and maintained, and we were warmly welcomed by Jim and Evelyn on our arrival.
There are two guest rooms - one a King and the other a Queen. Both are immaculately kept with highly polished wooden floors and comfortable beds. Private parking is available right outside your room. The free WiFi is fast with a repeater positioned on the wall right outside the king room. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, each with its own ensuite bathroom and outside sitting area by the sparkling pool.
You are invited to take advantage of full run of the property where Jim has a well established fruit and vegetable garden providing PawPaw, Passion Fruit, and bananas to name just a few offerings.
The Driftwood is conveniently located on a quiet street halfway between Mission Beach and Wongaling Beach, so choosing somewhere for dinner is just a five minute drive in either direction.
My wife and I were there with a couple of friends from New Zealand and we all had nothing but praise for the place. Breakfast is spectacular with choices from a short menu. On both days I had the Sailor's Start choice and didn't eat again until later that evening. Jim and Evelyn will join you as you breakfast if you wish to offer suggestions for what to do and where to go as well as relate some of the history of Mission Beach and the Driftwood.
Thoroughly recommended for friends and couples wanting a relaxing getaway.

Room Tip: Of the two excellent rooms available, the King room is obviously a little larger, but the Queen though smaller has the better garden view.

This was a really friendly, warm place with great facilities. The breakfasts were fantastic, especially the pancakes, which were a gorgeous challenge in them selves! The room was clean and we had twin showers. Hosts were very warm and helpful.

We have just left Mission Beach and we really enjoyed our three nights with Evelyn and Jim. They are lovely friendly hosts, the breakfasts are delicious, and the room was very comfortable and spacious. Nice bathroom. We borrowed bikes on one of the days, but would generally recommend having a car while staying here as it's a bit further than comfortable walking distance to the beach, restaurants etc. Highly recommend this place!

This was a lovely home, and Evelyn and Jim made us feel at home.
The breakfast was very good, with plenty on choices including fresh fruit.It was served on the patio overlooking the pool.
We did not have a car and my husband can not walk very far. But Jim drove us were we wanted to go, and when we were ready we phoned him and he came to pick us up.
