Beachside House

  • 5 of 5

Holiday started well with a kind & helpful welcome from the housekeeper. The layout of the house was intriguing, having 4 floors in a 2 storey house. The house (almost on the beach) was beautifully maintained & decorated, and had contemporary furnishings. The only fault for me personally (a pensioner) was that I would have appreciated a handrail on the stairs.

The 2 sundecks/balcony's were wonderful. For sun worshippers one of them was always in the sunlight, or conversely, shade, for those of us who cannot cope with extreme heat. We had the 2 hottest weeks last summer. I spent hours in the shade in the mornings on the glass fronted front balcony reading & just enjoying the wonderful view over the sea to the Isle of Wight. The same view was enjoyed from the lounge through the huge patio windows. At low tide one could walk for miles along the sea shore, & even the horses from the local stables came for their dip in the sea & a canter along the beach through the shallow water.

When I accidently locked us out of the house the housekeeper came to our rescue. We cannot speak too highly of her helpfulness & care, & she is a great asset to the owners. Having a safe parking space just outside the house was great. We enjoyed some lovely meals which were good value for money at the nearby Pond Barn Restaurant. We had a really lovely holiday.

Beautiful beach retreat

  • 5 of 5

This property is a beautiful well equipped holiday home, perfect for a family get away.

I would say it comfortably sleeps 4 adults and two children with one of the rooms having a bunk beds in it but we did have a small adult sleep on the bottom bunk who was comfortable enough.

It has a lovely outdoor space which shields the beach winds but is also a stones throw from the beach for lovely beach walks.

The beach views from the balcony and living room are fab.

I would definitely stay again.

Tiny tiny thing that I think needs addressing is the downstairs bathroom is very drafty when the wind is blowing up and the door does not stay shut when shut from the outside so the adjacent bedroom became a little chilly in the evening.

Great beachfront house

  • 3 of 5

Fantastic holiday home in a great location. The house is extremely well equipped with everything needed for a holiday. The quiet location provides a relaxing setting to unwind and the light and airy lounge is a great space for the whole family to watch the ships.The property is very well maintained and clean with a very helpful housekeeper for any questions.

Comfortable beds and lovely decor all contribute to making this a very enjoyable break. Good parking and the excellent Billy's on the Beach very close provides everything needed. Local convenience store within walking distance and more shops in East Wittering provide plenty of local amenities.

Definitely recommend the house for a getaway by the sea.

Perfect Locations and Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this beach house April 2015 and revisited April 2016. The house is in a perfect location, and if you don't want to stay local you are not too far from other places of interest.

Fully equipped and definitely home from home, its comfortable, well looked after and nicely decorated, there's nothing we could think of to add. We love the beach house and location.

We used to spend our childhood holidays here, so will definitely be back to re live all those happy memories.

Fantastic rental property...can't wait to return

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic long weekend at this property and are already looking at dates as to when we can return. We have a 3 year old and a 4 year old and both the location, right on the beach, and the house itself were ideal.

Fabulous view from the lounge and balcony....very relaxing even if weather isn't so great. So close to the sandy beaches of West Wittering and near to Chichester & Portsmouth....even Peppa Pig World is less than an hour away! The cafe on the beach is such a bonus.....fabulous food and very friendly staff. What a luxury to be able to walk down the beach to this!!

Neil was great to deal with.....very informative pack provided ahead of our stay and prompt return of security deposit. We are very much looking forward to our next break here.

With views across to the Isle if Wight, Bracklesham Bay village is 0.5km away & has a small selection of shops & restaurants typical of any English seaside town - including fish & chips, ice creams & buckets & spades etc. Nearby East Wittering has more extensive quality shopping including bakers, butchers, fishmongers and mini supermarkets. Windsurfing & sailing is popular in the waters off Bracklesham Bay & The Witterings. The colourful sails racing at great speed over the water is a spectacle to watch. Walking on the sand at low tide for several miles in either direction is also popular. The Bracklesham beach area is renown for fossil hunting and at low tide small items can sometimes be found - a pastime for children. West wittering is a UK top 10 beach and is 10 minutes away by car or, for the more adventurous, can be reached on foot along the beach front at low tide

The main nearby town is Chichester which is a short distance away - about 15 minutes by car. The ancient Roman city is famous for the theatre, cathedral, art galleries, museums, restaurants, canal & shopping centre. It also offers offers bars, clubs, multi-screen cinema & a good rail link to London.

Other Activities: kiteboarding

Golf: http://www.chichestergolf.com/

Two 18 hole courses side by side, plus par 3 pitch and putt, driving range, putting green & crazy golf

at Hunston village, approx 4 miles away
