Be on the Beach in 30 seconds or walk to the High Street in 3 minutes, this is the perfect getaway right at the Best Surf Spot on the South Coast! Sssshh. The property is bright, airy and sunny and up on the first floor and you can see glimpses of the sea from the Bay windows in the sitting room, and the odd kite surfer, ship or yacht! It comfortably sleeps 4 people - in bedroom - king size bed, plus single bed (with trundle) and a sofa bed (sitting room). Plus an eat in kitchen too!

The space
There's a huge light, airy and sunny sitting room with a bay window where you can see glimpses of the sea, the odd boat and kite surfer. There's a TV, Wifi etc and two comfy sofas. One sofa is a double sofa bed which is available by prior arrangement (please ask when booking). There's a lovely big bedroom with dual aspect with a King Size memory foam mattress bed. There's also a single bed with a pull out trundle bed (so two single beds) and plenty of room for a travel cot if necessary. We are a family of 4 and happily all stay in this room together! A separate shower room and a spacious, modern well stocked kitchen with table and chairs. What more do you need?
