“Little love nest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Had an awesome weekend break, the place is very quirky twist of mordern with a lot of features.
Complete bliss with no one to disturb you.
Marcie the lady that owns this property is so sweet and friendly can not do enough for you.
There was not one thing you could not like it was completely PERFECT and added bonus of gorgeous weather overlooking the sea.
We will defiantly return at some point .
Thanks Marcie

“Just Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

What can i say that has not already been said about this beautiful flat. From the moment you climb the last few white wooden stairs you know you have arrived at something special. Although not huge there is plenty of space for two people to kick back and relax. The whole place is spotless, the kitchen very well equiped, the bathroom wonderful, the louhge comfortable, the bedroom quirky and the view is stunning. The bed is so snug and although a tight fit around it, i can't say it was a problem. There is a set of drawers, a wooden shelving unit with towels and an under the eaves space for shoes, coats and hanging clothing. The lounge has tv, radio, books and a corner sofa where you can lay back and see all the little nick nacks that make the place so homely and unusual. Bath is lovely and deep, water lovely and hot. Kitchen has everything you need including tea towels, kitchen roll, condiments, tea, coffee etc. There is a table for eating and two chairs and a small table on the balcony. The view is stunning; fold back the floor to ceiling windows and let the sound of the sea take your cares away. There is a small supermarket just along the road, plenty of eateries within a few minutes walk and Hastings front is only a 20 minute slow stroll along a flat promenade. We used the underground car park just past White Rock Theatre on the other side of the road (4 minutes walk if that) which was £2.20 for 24 hours, cctv and locked between 11pm and 7am. Marcie is a wonderfully warm lady who certainly has made a small bit of heaven on the 5th floor or a house by the sea. We certainly recommend this place and hope to return again.

“Beautiful View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Had a fabulous time in Hastings. Marcie place was very shabby chic. Loved the bath tub and breakfast that Marcie left for our arrival.

Loved Old Town and walking the beach.

Thanks Marcie....

“Sunny, private balcony with phenomenal sea view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Lovely, light, open plan living area with balcony looking out to sea, uninterrupted views.
Big deep bath for two, gorgeous interior with original exposed beams.
Great central location but when you are sitting on the balcony its very private with just you and the sea. We intend to return, thank you Marcie!

“Little piece of heaven in Hastings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Just returned from an amazing weekend at La Petite Penthouse. From the start meeting Marcie to collect keys it was lovely. Marcie is a wonderful lady who provides a gorgeous hamper but more than anything else she is so kind and keen for you to have the best time. It's like she's an old friend.
The penthouse is immaculate, cosy and romantic. Each morning we sat and watched the sunrise on the balcony drinking tea. The views are stunning.
Pier 9 is an excellent restaurant for romantic meal and there are some lovely little cares and bars in the small lanes of the old town.
We will definitely return . Thank youMarcie x x

“The view is just priceless”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

What a great week in Hastings! Marcie was very kind & helpfull. The parking of the car was easier than exspected (Warrior Square, St. Margarets Road). The flat itself - well eqipped, cosy & quiet - was like an island in the sky with fantastic views. A constantly changing light, sea & sky. Hastings & the surrounding area were very interesting (the fishing boats on the beach, Jerwood Gallery, the Hill Lifts, the nice, small shops & galleries in St. Leonhards & in the Old Town, De La Warr Pavillon in Bexhill etc.), also an excellent starting point for combined train & cycle tours along the coast (Bexhill, Eastbourne, Rye, Romney Marsh, Dungeness). We enjoyed everything very much & will come back next year.
