The Sanctuary is beautiful, clean, comfortable and well equipped. The location is the perfect place for guests wanting to enjoy the seafront or attractions throughout the town. It is within easy walking distance of the train station for trips to London or other attractions. The street is very quiet at night so the location is peaceful and relaxing. We had a wonderful time and I would highly recommend this location.

Carl and Sarah were the perfect host. We booked very late and Carl was exceptionally accommodating for us. He met us at the property and kept in touch to make sure we were OK. Everything in the property was as expected. We had absolutely no problems at all. Check out was just as quick and easy. Very highly recommended

An extremely comfortable and well equipped apartment close to the beach and the center of Eastbourne. Calm & relaxing décor helps you to forget you are so close to shops, theatres, cafes and bars. Amazingly quiet - no street noise at all. All the letting agency staff we met and spoke to were friendly and helpful. I would strongly recommend this apartment.

Quiet, central location. Apartment has everything you need for a great stay.
Booked through Exclusively Eastbourne. 2 minute walk to theatres and seafront. 5 minutes walk to the town centre.
Parking permits supplied by Ex.Ebrne. Lots of parking available nearby....but I did go at end of September.
Apartment is modern and comfortable. I would definitely book to go there again.

We'll be back!
We SO enjoyed our first staycation in Eastbourne, and much of that was because this flat is so close to everything, so quiet, so comfortable, so well equipped and so spacious.
Thanks to the team and we look forward to being able to drop back again another time!

A brilliantly convenient centre of town location.
Only a few minutes walk to the sea, that is a lovely quiet escape the moment you descend the stairs.

Beautiful experience.
We loved our stay in Eastbourne. The property was clean and bright. The hosts were great at Communication. For future guests, there is a lift you can use when bringing in your luggage. We didn’t realize that and used the stairs. I would definitely recommend this Lovely property and hosts to travelers.
Thank you so much!
