About the property

Well Equipped 2 Bed Flat Close To The Beach And Town. Sleeps 4 (plus cot)

West Parade is a beautiful first floor seafront flat with full height windows framing a stunning outlook over the sea. The flat is suitable for families or couples although might not be suitable for the elderly or very young babies in a buggy as the flat is situated on the first floor.

There are 2 bedrooms: a spacious double and a small bunk room suitable for children with a loft bed, separate single bed and trundle bed (if needed).

There is a well equipped kitchen area (no freezer or microwave but plenty of other cooking equipment to suit your needs) within the open plan living area. As you will see from the photos, there is no television in the flat. Many people, including our family, use holiday times to connect with loved ones and have a bit of a digital detox! During the day, if you are in the flat, it is lovely to sit by the huge windows and watch the world go by. In the evenings you can entertain yourselves with our variety of games and puzzles, immerse yourself in one of our magazines or books or even just enjoy one another's company whilst having a chat! If you really can't live without a screen, we have unlimited broadband wifi (and a tv licence) so bring a laptop, iPad or tablet and keep up to date with all your favourite programmes!

The bathroom has both a small bath and overhead shower. Please note we do not provide towels for bath or beach so please do bring your own!

There is free, unlimited street parking directly outside the flat available on a first come, first served basis. This free parking extends all the way down West Parade if you can't get a parking space directly outside.

About Jane and Chris

After growing up in the area and spending many happy times on Bexhill beach (the photo above shows us on the beach in the 70s!), I was keen for my children to experience the relaxed and care free seaside days I remembered as a child. Bexhill holds fond memories for me and we enjoy making new memories every time we visit.

Jane and Chris purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Jane and Chris chose Bexhill

West Parade holds a special place in my heart as my aunt lived here (in the flat next door!) when I was a child and I loved coming to visit and playing on the beach opposite. Many of the period properties in this block still have lots of original features and that is part of their charm, along with their fantastic location. After viewing many properties we were lucky enough to find this gem of a flat, come and see why we think it is so lovely!

What makes this apartment unique

You only need to sit and look out of the beautiful floor to ceiling windows to see the ever changing vista of sea and beach and I think you too will fall in love with the place... and want to return again and again.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a lovely time in your apartment, the view was stunningly beautiful. Unfortunately time went by too quickly. We enjoyed the cosy atmosphere and had a perfect time here in Bexhill. We will definitely come back in the summer for swimming in the sea!

I wish this flat belonged to me!

  • 5 of 5

Probably the most comfortable place I have stayed in ever (!) with the most amazing view of the constantly changing sea and sky. I loved being here and didn’t want to leave, even to buy food or shop for bargains in the charity shops.

Relax and waves

  • 5 of 5

We came for recover after tough times, and have had a wonderful time in a wonderful flat with a wonderful view and wonderfully decorated ! Everything was so lovely !

Confortable and warm, very well furnished (just a hairdryer would have been appreciated), and such a pretty dish ! with nice area, easy to park and shops/restaurants nearby.

Very available and sensitive owners, ready to help and inform, a very nice and helpful neighbour downstairs (and noisy ones upstairs ;-)).

Nothing to say except thank you, we really enjoyed our stay !

(A bit expensive, though... we could probably not afford a second experience here, unfortunately...)

What a lovely, lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I visited Bexhill from the US to visit my dear old Dad and were lucky enough to find this gem. The flexibility of the owners when we had to reschedule was so appreciated. The property itself is utterly charming, beautifully themed and very "home-like". Plus - the sea-view from the living room is fantastic!

This place was just perfect for our needs - there is nothing I can fault with the property - it far surpassed our expectations. We will DEFINITELY be back! If you are a couple or a small family visiting the south coast, this place is perfect.

Owner's Response: Thanks Matt for the lovely review - we are so glad we could accommodate you and your brother and reschedule your stay after your delay due to the hurricane in Florida. I'm pleased you had a fun family get together in Bexhill and we would be happy to welcome you back to West Parade again in the future.

Treasure by the sea

  • 5 of 5

Lovingly decorated flat in stunning location, just across the street from the seafront.

Favourite spot (from minute 1) was the seat by the window. :-)

We didn't really miss a television ... but made frequent use of the broadband wifi (to plan our trips around the area).

The week spent in Bexhill was really relaxing. We'd love to return (asap).

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you had such a good stay at West Parade. We love relaxing on the window seat too, far more interesting sitting there watching the world go by rather than sitting in front of a tv on your holidays! We'd love to welcome you back to Bexhill one day.
