About Simon Rosan
We are a normal family who enjoy spending time away from the hustle and bustle of modern working life. Getting away from it all is number one on our list of priorities and being spoilt comes a close second!
Simon Rosan purchased this Bungalow in 2012
Why Simon Rosan chose Chichester
We love this area of the South Coast as it boast some great facilities and things to do, it really does cater for all! Everything you need only a short distance away. Located in a great Holiday Village site, the Chalet is only 2 miles from a brilliant sandy beach and the surrounding countryside is beautiful and peaceful but not too sleepy! Easy to get to from the A3 or A27. We feel relaxed as soon as we get here and hope you will agree.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Beautiful, tranquil location, with private beach access, ideally suited to both families or for quiet get aways and romantic retreats. The location of the property also boasts great relaxing or adventurous activities such as surfing, rambling, fishing breaks or just spending a few days catching up with a good book. The holiday site has a swimming pool, country pub and convenience store amongst it's many amenities but retains its quiet, peaceful ambience which is a far cry from a Hi-de-Hi holiday camp.

Great location with awesome pebble beach nearby
My family of five spent a wonderful weekend at this chalet. It was our first experience with VRBO, and it did not disappoint! Simon was great to work with -- very responsive to emails, flexible on our ever-changing arrival time, warm and welcoming when we finally did make it. Plus, we had a lovely welcome basket of goodies that made our stay even better as we were just coming in from a long flight from the States.
The location was great -- quiet and clean. We were all exhausted from our travels but pepped up after Simon directed us to the nearby, basically secluded yet BEAUTIFUL pebble beach. My adult kids had fun pretending to be "Karate Kid" on the pier pillars, and then we all had a quiet, relaxing evening back at "Life's A Beach" bungalow. The kitchen had everything we needed to fix our evening meal, and the electric fireplace was cozy as it was late October when we were visiting. The days, by the way, were in the mid-60's (Fahrenheit - haha) so absolutely perfect.
I highly recommend "Life's A Beach" chalet and hope to return there one day soon! Thanks, Simon, for everything and we wish you all the best!
Lisa and family
Very clean and well appointed
Very safe for children. And play area on site.
Lovely clean chalet which was very quiet throughout our 5 night stay. The park itself is beautifully landscaped and well-cared for. The chalet is very comfortable and beach-themed throughout and we were left a good welcome pack, including items such as bread, milk, apple juice, a variety of teas and cake. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and booked to go back next year on our way home, which says it all!
Perfect bungalow for a family holiday
We stayed in this bungalow for a week in July with our two kids (4 and 2 years old). It is a great place for a family holiday. Great playground, lovely swimming pool and a beach within walking distance. We also had dinner at the pub, which was fine (nothing special, but perfect place to visit once or twice). The bungalow is well equipped and cosy. Big enough for a family of 4. Plenty of things to do in the neighborhood. Chichester is a nice place and we also visited Portsmouth.
A really nice place and location
Cosy little chalet
This chalet had everything we needed, you could tell a lot of thought had gone into providing home comforts. A great couple of nights away - thank you!
