We are slowly drifting into the tail end of summer, which means it is time to begin planning ways to escape the impending winter doldrums. When I stumbled upon the glory that is Drift San José, I knew we had found our winter sanctuary. Owner and designer Stu Waddell describes his retreat as a mix of Baja style with industrial finishes. I love the simple concrete platform beds, the Argentine-style outdoor grill, and the clear blue swimming pool. New Year's Eve in Mexico? Yes, please!
