Why Elaine Parkes chose East Sussex

We love the seaviews and the fact that we are within easy reach of fabulous restaurants in Hastings Old Town. Pelham Cresent is one of the most picturesque listed buildings in Hastings. We love to spend weekends here if its not rented out.

Great location and comfortable, clean property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Hastings and this house was in a terrific location. The views from both floors were perfect! Chris who handles arrivals and departures is a joy to work with and Elaine (owner) had great communication throughout. The property is clean and comfortable with a new bathroom and kitchen. This was a good vrbo choice by us and will be for you!

Great Apartment in a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our short stay here. The apartment was well laid out and really well equipt. Cooking basics (oil, flour, gravy mix, etc) were all provided as well as tea, coffee and milk. As the apartment occupies the top two floors of the building there are quite a few stairs to climb. However, the plus side of this was that you had a great uninterrupted ocean view from both the living room and master bedroom. Would certainly stay here again.

Beautiful apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed over New Year and could not have asked for much more from the place. The apartment is beautifully finished and well-equipped - the interior photos on the website didn't really do it justice. We found it wonderfully located for visiting Hastings Old Town & seaside attractions, as well as the new shopping centre & amenities. We travelled by train and Hastings station is only a 5-10 minute walk away, which we were grateful for with heavy bags and some wild weather! This also made it good for exploring the wider local area.

The apartment is a top-floor duplex, so anyone with a serious problem negotiating 3 flights of stairs should perhaps bear that in mind. The reward is the view out over the sea and a feeling of getting away from crowds below. The kitchen is fully stocked with equipment, should you choose to use it, and we were grateful for the provision of a few basics - bread, butter, milk, tea/coffee, etc. The living room was a little chilly, but seemed to have new sofas - they were different to the ones shown on the website. The bedroom which we used was very comfortable and the others looked fine too. Bathroom was clean and spacious.

Overall a lovely place to spend a few days!
