Beautiful house, dreamy location
This is an amazing house which has been beautifully restored. It is great for 2 families and has everything you need for a wonderful break - lots to do at the house, incredible sea views and the beach at the end of the garden. Everything is in great condition. We will definitely book again.
A truly fantastic week in an amazing house. And to top it off a perfect location. We arrived to a spotless well equipped home and had so much fun exploring all the quirky characteristics. Apart from the beach and the lovely local Seaview pub we literally spent the whole week in the house making the most of it. Cannot wait to return!
We all loved vista point. Fantastic location with ability to walk out from gate at end of garden on to beach. Lovely views. House is fascinating and very well equipped with wonderful views from lounge and dining room.
And then of course there was the wonderful swimming pool which we spent hours in.
Jon was extremely helpful and responded always very quickly to any email.
We'd stay again

Lovely property, very well equipped and situated in a quiet beachside location.
We were a party of 8 spanning 3 generations and the property was perfectly suited to us all. The kitchen was very well equipped with plenty of crockery and glasses. The bedrooms were comfortable and the bed linen was very nice quality. The pool was heated to a lovely warm temperature which meant we were able to make good use of it even though the weather wasn't hot. The area is really quiet and we enjoyed walks into the village and along the beach. We had a nice meal at the East Beach cafe in Littlehampton, we booked a taxi there and back which was a reasonable price of £10 each way. We would recommend this property and would love this visit again.
Great property with pool and direct beach access
Vista Point is a very interesting property in its architecture, decor and furnishings. The pictures hardly do justice to the care that has been taken to give the house its unique style. Location on a quiet private estate with direct access to the beach and coastal path through your own back gate. Pool and pool house very well maintained - table football also much appreciated as the weather was not the best. Grand parents showed a misspent youth by winning!
The facilities inside were excellent - having 3 good sized bathrooms is a real help and the kitchen cupboard is full of crockery, bowls and glasses.Outside the gardens are large enough to find a quiet corner if you want. Easy access to shops either local or supermarkets within an easy bike ride or walk. Bluebird cafe at Ferring particularly recommended.
Would fully recommend to families with or without children.
From the Owner
“We loved the house first, as an iconic piece of modernist design in a great setting, and discovered the area second. Living in London, this is a fantastic escape for us as a family and is only and hour and a half away.”

Except during July and August, we offer week long stays running from Friday to Friday, weekend short breaks from Friday to Monday, and mid-week short breaks from Friday to Monday. Changeover days are therefore Fridays and Mondays and if you pick your stay to start and end on these days of the week you should see the correct price for you stay. When we are less busy we can be more flexible on change-over days - just ask. During July and August we only offer 7 night stays (or multiples of 7) running from Friday to Friday.
The house contains many original features (cupboards, dressing tables, bed headboards etc) designed by the architect, and this originality is part of the reason for its listing by English Heritage. Many of these would be very difficult and expensive to repair. We therefore require a £1000 refundable damages deposit 7 days before your stay. This can be paid by credit card if you refer, and is refunded as soon as the housekeeper has had a chance to confirm that there is no damage - this is usually within a couple of days and always within 7 days.
