Eastbourne, East Sussex, England
The house is decorated in a bright holiday style with new furniture. It is just a few minutes walk from the harbour where you can wander past the boats after which a drink or dinner can be enjoyed overlooking the main harbour at The Waterfront.

The property is in a quiet Close very near to bus routes and shops. There is a designated parking space. It has two bedrooms one with a double bed, a bunk room (bunk mattresses 5'9' long) and a shower room.

The Waterfront with its restaurants and bars is also just minutes walk away as is the Crumbles shopping centre (Asda, Boots, Next, Matalan, TK Maxx and others).

We have had great reviews, which is very pleasing - view our guest book on arrival!

Excellent location: short walk to marina with facilities but also good base for exploring the rest of Sussex. Property exactly as described in details and spotlessly clean. Very straightforward booking with helpful owner and quick refund of deposit.

Management response:

Dear Eileen, Thank you for your lovely review. It is always nice to hear that our customers have had a good holiday in our house.

Lovely place, quiet, spotlessly clean, well provisioned and secure. Dedicated parking spot easy to get in and out of. Easy walking distance to supermarket, shops and restaurants. Buses into Eastbourne city centre just a few minutes at end of close. Net speed excellent. A brilliant start to my holiday.

Management response:

I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay Pam. Wonderful news.
