“Lovely flat”

Flat is very well positioned near to the seafront and bandstand. On street parking nearby was never a problem. Lots of really good restaurants and shops on Terminus road, which is 5 minutes walk away.

The flat has everything you need, including WiFi, and a nice patio at the back.
We've just had our second visit so that says it all really.

"A taste of luxury in beautiful Eastbourne"
A luxurious and quiet apartment that lacks for nothing to make one's stay a pleasure. My wife and I would often say "look, there is even a such-and-such". And how enjoyable it was to sit and have breakfast while being entertained by the squirrels in the garden. An absolute topper of an apartment.

It's excellent value for money. Exclusively Holiday Homes and her staff was from the beginning to the end of our stay helpful for all ours questions and needs. The location of the Apartment surprised us for its position a 5 minutes food walk from the ELC language school and also only 3 minutes from the charming seaside. Not much further we found the urban centre of the town. Ideal for ambling, shopping and coffee breaks. The outstanding comfort and infrastructure of the flat equipped with best qualities of household appliance makes you just feel at home. Ideal for self catering.

Super Apartment! This is our second trip to Eastbourne. We really enjoy the (good old school) service from Sarah and Carl. They are always 100% reliable. Gresham house is perfect! (2 adults 2 teenagers from Norway). Its located near the beach and the city center. The flat has a Nice living room and Kitchen, two bedrooms, two baths, and a nice patio. The flat is modern and functional. We really enjoyed the two weeks here and will surely come back!

"Perfect apartment, great location"
We really enjoyed our time at this apartment, which is nicely refurbished and stylishly furnished. The location is very convenient for both the seaside and the town centre and served well as a basis for tours around East Sussex and to London. Contact and service provided by the owner/management was very friendly and helpful, especially including the arrangements for our late arrival.

Simply ideal.
The flat is superbly appointed to a high standard and included everything we needed; the patio is a lovely area to relax and a real bonus whether having breakfast or after the beach.
It was ideally situated for us, both near the town and the beach.

Perfect stay.
The accommodation was very well received. Beautifully clean, it contained everything you would need. The parking out front was essential and always available, so we recommend buying a parking permit. They're not expensive, and well worth it. This apartment is highly recommended.

Wonderful stay.
Lovely well equipped apartment, everything you would need for food preparation and cooking if you did not want to eat our every night at the plentiful and varied restaurants nearby.
Several handy small local shops are just a short walk if you do not wish to go to the supermarket.
Lovely big terrace if you are lucky with the weather.
Promenade and beach a stones throw away.
There is a bus stop just at the bottom of the road.
Well managed by Exclusively Eastbourne who dealt promptly with a problem we had.
This is our second stay at Gresham House, we stayed in the smaller apartment on a previous visit. Both are very comfortable and have excellent modern showers, we would stay in either of them again.

Outstanding Flat in Eastbourne.
My husband, toddler son, and I stayed at the 2-bedroom Gresham Flat for just under two weeks in the month of October 2022. The flat had the rooms, spaces, and amenities precisely as described in the listing and as represented in the photographs. I have used vacation rental services for years, and this flat had the best equipped kitchen by far. The availability and quality of cookware, utensils (both cooking and eating), kitchen tools, etc. were clearly thought through with comfort and ease of staying in mind. There was even a small set of plastic plates and cups, which were a welcomed addition for my toddler. In addition to the kitchen, small details all around the apartment (location/quality/comfort of lamps, chairs, beds, etc.) were clearly given much thought and all contributed to the overall experience. Upon arrival, a large and organized binder of information was available for the renter's reference - the scope and details of what was included were incredibly insightful and helpful (i.e. where is the nearest grocery, recommended restaurants, medical care facilities, etc.). Talk about setting up renters to have the best experience possible. The property managers of the flat were exceptionally responsive and clear in their responses to me before and during our stay, which further contributed to our family's comfort. We would come back again, no doubt, and my husband made it a point to mention that we should try to get this specific flat again if we ever return.

Comfort by the sea.
The apartment is compact and comfortable. If the weather is agreeable there is a lovely patio to have your meals outside. The kitchen is fully equipped, oven, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave. We slept really well on very comfortable beds. You are very close to the sea front also there is a very handy little convenience store across the road at the garage. The main shops are on Terminus Road. Sainsburys, M&S and a very good bakers To The Rise. There are lots of restaurants quite close to the apartment. There is very little traffic noise so you will not be disturbed. This will be the second time we have stayed in the two bed roomed apartment, we have also stayed in the one bed room apartment next door which is equally nice. Thank you for a wonderful break in Eastbourne.

Comfort and peaceful.
A really excellent apartment for a visit to Eastbourne. Close to both the seafront and restaurants. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable. If the weather allows there is a lovely patio to sit and have a nice drink or a meal.
