“As near to the sea as you can get!”
Reviewed 31 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We had a wonderful time here celebrating a friend's Birthday. We weren't that lucky with the weather, but the house was lovely, cosy and warm. Perfect for bracing walks along the beach and close to Eastbourne for the pier and a bit of shopping. There was plenty of space for us all (6 adults) to chill out and the kitchen was well equipped.
From the time of booking, communication with the owner was really good and all queries answered quickly. There is plenty of useful information at the house re places to visit and local restaurants. I only wish the sea had been calm enough to make use of the Kayak!
Highly recommended and would love to return in the Summer for barbecues on the decking and an early morning or midnight swim!.

“Just lovely!”
Reviewed 28 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

If you want a quiet, comfortable and relaxing break with great views of the sea then this is perfect. We really enjoyed the space in the house with 3 teenagers and 1 to be teenager and wifi was good! . It is ideally situated to reach Sovereign harbour in Eastbourne for lovely family restaurants, and under an hour to Brighton. We would love to return and I'm already looking at availability. Thanks for the great communication Jack.

This is a beautiful, well equipped and spacious accommodation. Perfect for a weekend retreat or longer. The views of the beach and sea from the property are stunning. The very quiet and tranquil, it's in a great location, close to Eastbourne town, souvereign Harbour with lots of eateries and entertainment it also has a great local pub, the Star Inn. if you need any grocery provisions there is a local kiosk selling most of what you need. I would highly recommend a stay here. I will definitely be coming back. Extreamely enjoyable and relaxing stay. The owner was very accommodating, helpful and communication is first class. You will not be disappointed.
