Lovely pleasant stay
Lovely pleasant stay for everyone. Would definitely recommend to visit again soon.
Comfortable family friendly house in a great location.
Went for a long weekend with my husband, two kids, and their grandparents. The property was a great location to walk into Rottingdean and the beach via a grassy path. Outside the house was the bus stop to get to Brighton. Lots to lovely walks in Rottingdean and Rudyard Kipling gardens. Even though it was on a noisy road, the house is very quiet with beautiful views of the water. Comfortable lounge for reading and playing with our kids. Kitchen well stocked to make proper meals. Plenty of room in the house to hang out but also have some privacy. Great choice!
Wonderful Sea Views
Lovely property, centrally located to Brighton and turned out to be a great choice for our trip home to the UK to visit friends, family and generally travelling around. Lots of great pubs in the area and Rottingdean village, the undercliff walk and beach are only a few minutes stroll down the road.
House was spotless, very well equipped and the welcome supply of basic food requirements was very much appreciated after a long flight, along with the smell of fresh flowers in the home. Ruth the property manager who lives next door greeted us upon arrival with the keys and general information and Karen the owner has been very accommodating with any requests.
If you are bringing a car the driveway access is pretty tight and involved a few manoeuvres to turn the car around again at the top of the drive when we went out (you would not want to reverse out into the traffic) but certainly not an issue and there was plenty of room by the garage to park. Lovely garden to enjoy and the sea views from the main living area were fantastic.
Would definitely recommend this property and would certainly stay again in the future so thank you.
Erica, I am pleased that you and your family had a comfortable at Seahaven. Thank you for acknowledging the hard work that my cleaning team and the gardener have put into the house and garden to create an atmosphere where guests can enjoy their break.
Beautiful Sea View
The house is nice although furniture a little dated and the single beds are very small. More cups and plates are needed - we had to wash cups 2 or 3 times a day. Just small details to make an enjoyable stay even nicer. We loved the sea view from the sitting room and a bus stop outside the house was very practical for getting to Brighton.
I found your feedback quite insightful.
The furniture is dated: – I would say about 50% is not just dated, but old. There are 3 items that are over 100 years old.
The kitchen table and wine rack in dining room – are distress furniture – old furniture that is not tarted up (shabby chic/vintage furniture). I should have made it clearer that the house is furnished with a combination of antique/vintage/retro/shabby chic) Over the years we have endeavoured to source furniture and paintings to give a quirky and individualistic theme.
I was quite surprised that you felt that there were not sufficient plates etc:
I just need to remind you the crockery that is available during your stay is for 6 guests.
6 cups, 6 cereal bowls/soup bowls, 6 side plates,6 dessert dishes,6 pasta dishes, 6 medium dinner plates +, 6 large dinner plates+, 6 glass tumblers, 6 small wine glasses, 6 large wine glasses. There was a wide selection of salad and serving dishes, including a china teapot and gravy dish.
For your stay, the house was prepared for the 6 guests that were booked. If 8 guests were booked there would have been 8 of everything.
The property manager who greeted you lives close by was not contacted to express your concerns about the lack of crockery this would have been addressed.
From your feedback, I have learnt that I need to provide clearer information about the house and how it is decorated and what is available during stay for 6 or 8 guests.
