“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed May 14, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

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.

Hi thanks for taking the time to give a review. You are right it is a small house but the price reflects this and I have had no complaints from people who were a family of four. I think the size is fine for a holiday but it would be more of a challenge for a family if they lived there full time with all the extra clutter that requires.

“Comfortable base for an excellent holiday ”
Reviewed August 3, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Just back from a very pleasant week with my family at Sovereign Retreat. The house is a comfortable home from home, an ideal base to explore the Sussex coast. Eastbourne itself is a little bit of a walk, but the house is in a nice location in the Marina development,very close to the beach, shops and restaurants, perfect for an evening stroll. Very helpful and friendly owners as well.

Dear Andy, Thanks for the lovely review. We are always very pleased to hear that people are enjoying our little house. We love it and stay there ourselves when we get a chance (usually deep in the winter months!) and I think that staying there ourselves means that we notice things that we need to supply and occasionally things that need replacing or mending. Thus we are able to keep it nice and ship shape.

Everything was really fine, only the bed could be a little bit more than 1.20 m for 2 weeks...

Dear Sigrid, I am very pleased you had a lovely holiday. The bed is a standard double bed - anything bigger would not fit very well into the room. I have tried to think of everything you could need in the kitchen and it sounds, from your remarks, that I have succeeded. Kind regards Debbie
