Clean attractive rooms. Beautiful yard. Excellent breakfast. Baubie is the owner and a wonderful host. We were on vacation from California, but only in PE for two nights, and Baubie arranged a moderately priced private tour of PE and the surrounding area that allowed us to see a lot in this short time.
