I do not usually post reviews of places we have stayed, but Driftwood deserves a review. The house is in a fantastic position with incredible views overlooking the ocean and the beach is just a few steps away. One of our favorite pastimes is walking along the beach and we walked for miles. We loved the house, it is incredibly comfortable and the views from the lounge/dining room are amazing, over the ocean and to Kapiti and beyond. Our room was perfect and even had a small office attached to it. The breakfasts were wonderful and we even had espresso coffee so were very happy. We stayed for three nights and went down to Waikanae for dinners, which was a relatively short drive. Our favorite restaurant was called Long Beach and we went there twice, it was so good.
We can't say enough about Barbara's hospitality, she looked after us so well, nothing was too much trouble.
