"We loved this stylish apartment! It is central, modern and very thoughtfully designed".

We were travelling with our 9-month old baby and the agent set up a travel cot in the 2nd bedroom. This room had cute bunkbeds in, so this flat would also be great for parents with older children. Our bed was massive - which was helpful when our little one decided she preferred to sleep with us, despite having her own lovely room!

We loved the fact that there was a big smart TV for cosy evenings in. We have a Netflix account so were able to log in and watch movies once our daughter went to sleep.

The kitchen is compact but well equipped - one thing to note is that there isn't a freezer, just a fridge, so bear that in mind when you are shopping.

The location is fab - at the top of the street is South Street, which has some great cafes and boutique shops.

“A beautiful and spotlessly clean apartment with everything you could need”

We were delighted to find everywhere spotless which was very important to us. Beds and bedding were comfortable and the place very bright and airy. There was even enough armchair seating for everyone without any squabbles! The location is great too. Five minute walk to sea front and about the same to train station and shopping centre. We would surely recommend this beautiful flat to anyone and would stay there again.

“Faultless accommodation”.

We stayed at this property in early April and booked it based on a review by an earlier occupier. The photos on Tripadviser were an accurate indication of the flat which had apparently only recently become available. We were made to feel very welcome by the agents acting on behalf of the owners.
It would not be an exaggeration to say that the flat was truly spotless with most if not all the kitchen equipment and furniture almost new.
As far as location is concerned, you could not really be better positioned, the train station is only a 10 minute walk away.

“Beautiful apartment in a great location”

The apartment is a newly refurbished purpose built Victorian Flat finished to a very high standard. Everything is practically brand new!
It has one spacious living room with open plan kitchen and a dining table big enough for 4 adults. There is a smart TV, a DVD player that offer plenty of entertainment if you'd rather stay in for the evenings... We particularly loved the big sash windows that make the room incredibly bright and airy.
The master bedroom has a comfortable king size bed with lots of storage spaces. There's also a small bedroom with bunk beds I'd imagine would be perfect for families with young children. The bathroom again is spotlessly clean and beautifully arranged. There's even a small washing machine!

"Great value comfortable apartment"

A great base to explore the East Sussex coastline. Comfortable accommodation with everything we needed for our stay. The location was very central to both the town centre and the beach. A very reasonable rate for half term too.
