“Great Location”
Reviewed 9 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

This is an old property with furnishings matching c.1950's. It was slightly grubby, particularly the kitchen floor and the sink. Also, the water heater in the kitchen did not work and from a note on the table the owner had promised that it would be fixed the previous week and it wasn't addressed during our stay either. The use of extension leads with multiple sockets particularly in the kitchen which was supplying the toaster and the kettle at the same time is not to be recommended. It needs a little work from a qualified electrician to correct these issues.
You would think from what I have said, that I would rate it very poorly, but you would be wrong! It was reasonably priced. It has bags of character and it is in the most fabulous location.
We had a great time!

Management Response
18 Jan 2017
Many thanks for the feedback. The kitchen is indeed in need of an update so that's exactly what is happening at the end of this month (January 2017). The whole area is being refitted along with the flooring right through the hallway into the bathroom. The electrics and water heater are being refitted and renewed as part of the process.
As soon as the work has been completed we will put up new photos on the website. However I would like to reassure anybody reading the review that the Beach House is always cleaned before visitors arrive but because the kitchen/floor were worn it was becoming difficult to get it to look pristine. The electrics were checked by an electrician and were deemed safe, but as the reviewer indicated, not ideal. I wouldn't like anyone to think we were putting guests at risk, so this is just a reassurance as the issues are going to be addressed very soon anyway.
I'm glad you had a good holiday anyway and hope you will return to see the improvements.

“Peaceful.”
Reviewed 29 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The bungalow is basically furnished but has everything you need for a quiet break away from it all. The location is what really sells this property. I went paddling in my pyjamas in the early morning sunshine with no one else in sight which sounds so silly but was the perfect antidote to my busy city schedule. Away from roads, the quiet was so restful and the walks along the beach beautiful. The owners were very polite and helpful when I corresponded with them and the cost is very reasonable.

“If you want to get away from it all, this is the place for you.......”
Reviewed 8 February 2016 for a stay in December 2015

This is a fabulously cosy cottage, warm and comfortable that we had a happy week in at the end of December and in to January. It is exactly as advertised, well equipped, with extra heaters for the winter months, a lovely retro feel with direct access to the shingly beach. The bits you don't know are the considerate extras, a welcome gift, information about the local area, games, dvds, books, soft pillows, cosy blankets and throws, cushions for the garden, a shed full of bits and pieces that you are welcome to use - a real family holiday home that you are truly invited to share by the owners.

“Seaside retreat”
Reviewed 27 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We all enjoyed our stay including the two small dogs who had a great time,comfortable stay unfortunately it was extremely mild and the living room was intolerably hot as the storage heaters are not easily controlled but apart from that all was ok.
May we suggest that a light be fitted outside at the back for safety reasons.

“Beach bungalow :)”
Reviewed 4 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We are a family of five and had a pleasant time in Eastbourne at the Ponderosa bungalow. The location was right on the beach and all our instructions were clear on arrival. We had a peaceful and wonderful break away from our usual hustle and bustle in Londo and will return again. Cosy bungalow and beautiful views.

“Cosy and relaxing”
Reviewed 29 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Me, My 14 year old daughter, and a small dog, had a wonderful stay in Pevensey Bay. The cottage is warm and comfortable ( would have liked wifi) with all you need for a relaxing break. Out of the back door straight onto the pebbles and down to the sea. My dog swam everyday and even in October we were able to sit and paint. The area is quiet , but just a short drive to Hastings, Eastbourne and Bexhill. In the Bay about 5mins by car is a selection of shops, including a Bakers which has a cafe attached, a number of fast food outlets and a convenience store amongst others.
We would certainly return for another stay.
