We found Driftwood on Travel Adviser's website and were struck by the description, price, and photos. We were not disappointed. In fact, the photos did not do this place justice. We had packed with all kinds of supplies and cookware that we never unpacked. This place had better appliances, better cookware, and better accommodations than our house. Everything was quality made and brand new. The location was perfect. You had a beautiful view of the beach and the surf from the common deck. The beach itself is across the street. On one day of our visit there was a surf contest being held right there in eye shot. On the last days a pacific storm created huge 10 ft waves that we could hear in the bedrooms at night. Beautiful! The sand on that beach is some of the softest sand I've ever felt; and, that includes beaches in Puerto Viarta and Hawaii. There is also a great bar just a block away called "Ye old Plank"; and, a block away in the other direction was a great restaurant called the Sea Coastal Tavern 180 that had super quality foods at reasonable prices during happy hour from 2:30 to 5:00. The on tap beer here is some of the best in the state. A short walk south of the restaurant brings you to the IB Pier where you can walk, fish, or eat at a restaurant at the end of the pier. You can also rent bikes, boats, fishing and surfing gear on the main Seacoast street. That doesn't even include all the things to do in San Diego like touring Balboa Park, a multitude of Museums, the Zoo, and Safari Adventure. Right up the street in Coronado is another host of things to do as well. We toured the bay on Hornblower Cruise, visited the Midway aircraft carrier, the Maritime Museum and ate at some great restaurants on the bay in the Silver Strand. Our kids had a ball playing in the fountains in the Embarcadero and at Disney land. We will definitively return because one week simply isn't long enough to see everything there is to do her. The only thing is, next time we will bring a lot less stuff with us. This place rocks.
