Breakfasting on the fourth floor balcony, feet away from the pebbly beach, breathing in the crisp air, warming to the morning sun's soft touch on our faces and listening to the sea as it shushed over the shingles, enjoying far reaching views to east (Hastings) and west (Beachy Head and Eastbourne) and to the south over the ever changing sea - what's not to love?! And, right behind us, a comfortable and quirkily furnished apartment, with a relaxed, beach side cottage, feel and containing everything you need for a do-as-you-please, refreshing break. Batman, perched on the grandfather clock, supervising the table football games, was soon like an old friend :) The many books were inviting in themselves (if a little dusty, as bookshelves tend to become) and board games were also provided. We got the the feeling that the owner used and cared about this apartment. Walk along the sea front from this St Leonards flat to Hastings with its attractive old town and pier, explore further afield along the coast or into the Sussex countryside, cross the road to enjoy the beach and sea - or simply step on to the balcony to enjoy the view whilst sipping the wine left as a welcome gift - the choices are many. Would be happy to return or recommend.
The apartment is in a great location right on the seafront, with both St Leonards and Hastings within easy walking along the promenade. The flat is spacious, bright and airy and equipped with everything you need - and minus something you don't - a TV! It was lovely spending time playing boards games, reading, playing table football and looking out to sea from the balcony. We felt very relaxed and comfortable. Thank you Neil for a great weekend!
I stayed here for 6 weeks and I loved the flat! Very comfortable and well equipped and right next to the sea! Jemma was very good and always responded straight away! Would definitely stay here again!
Undoubtely you will come for the view - which is spectacular from this 5th floor appartement. Ideally located half way between Hastings and St Leonards. Well equipped with essentials: large fridge/freezer, soon to be plumbed in washing machine, hot shower, central heating etc. Squeaky bed frame and the ever present seagulls might make complete rest a little troublesome but a truly welcoming, unpretentious space and perfect place to relax. No TV, but wi-fi worked perfectly for streaming TV or music. Bring a pile of books and take in the vista. The waves and ever changing sky/sea scape will soothe your soul. Plenty to explore around and about. Thanks Neli - I loved my week here.
