“peaceful, unspoiled and very relaxing”
Reviewed July 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is the second time we have visited Moonshine. Last year we were very lucky with the weather; not so this year. However, we still loved the location. Being directly on the beach is utterly wonderful. Early morning can feel quite magical. The house is very comfortable and fulfils all basic needs very well.

(just one miner suggestion: it might be a good idea to replace the large broken umbrella at the back of the house, or perhaps just removing it altogether)

“Lovely place to unwind”
Reviewed July 9, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Lovely place to relax and get away. Spectacular views and a well-equipped little place that is full of charm. Everything was clean and in working order, the place itself is really comfy and felt like a home away from home we had a great time with the kayaks! We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return to Moonshine

“Peaceful, relaxing and right by beautiful beach and nature reserve”
Reviewed July 8, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I have wanted to stay in one of the converted railway carriage cottages since I was a kid and finally got around to it. Beautiful outlook for sitting around on decking and doing nothing, but you can also walk straight out and into the sea and be energetic if you want. We were just two taking it easy but kids would have fun here too. The Pagham Harbour nature reserve is wonderful for walks and birdwatching and changes all the time with the state of the tide. Unique and comfortable - highly recommended.

This really is heaven on earth! Home from home comfort right on the beach! Everything you can think of supplied! Spotlessly clean and so relaxing! A family get together with a bbq on the decking overlooking the beach was a real memeorable evening! As was breakfast taking in the wonderful seaviews and sea air! Just the medicine we needed. We would highly recommend this haven on Pagham Beach!

“Simply Perfect”
Reviewed June 14, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Previous reviews say it all. Absolutely perfect for us to unwind with no one around to bother us.
We have already rebooked for later this summer and look forward some peace and tranquillity again.

Thank you Ivor and I have recommended your lovely holiday home to many.

“Blissful Peace & Tranquility”
Reviewed May 23, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Reluctantly came home today having stayed at Moonshine for 5 nights. The sea view is really something and what we really enjoyed was the tranquility, all you can hear are the gentle waves and birdsong. Our labrador was in 'Doggie Heaven' and it was lovely to stop and chat with other dog owners. It's a very laid back place, beautifully clean and very comfortable. Unfortunately, we didn't see the Moonshine on the water but there were a couple of beautiful sunrises. Will definitely go back. Thankyou.
