“I can't rate this B&B more highly.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

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.

Stayed April 2013, traveled as a couple

When we first arrived at Driftwood, we were amazed at all the little touches in our room that made it a very special stay. Barbara looked after us like we were family and the breakfasts were probably the best we had in NZ. Sitting at their dining room table and looking across the back garden to the ocean was amazing especially with the sunsets we saw. Our room was beautifully decorated and felt just like home. There was also a spa on the back deck for our use. Everything about Driftwood is memorable and we would recommend anyone to stay there. Thank you Barbara and Murray so much. You are very special people!
