I was traveling with my parents and my Mom found Driftsands. The lady in charge was very helpful about things to do in PE and was super concerned about our safety.

We spent 3 nights here. Clise proximity to beach. Neat, clean roons and comfortable beds. Only downside was the noise. We were in the direct flight path of landing planes which were so low you could almost see passengers through the windows. These came over in the the early hours of the morning.

Once in possession of the key, access is gained to the yard from an anticlockwise direction via a remote control security door to the side of the property. There are good access roads into town, the seafront road and the airport. Although the accommodation...
