Perfect for young family
Thoroughly enjoyable stay. The house was great for us. It's location of great. We really enjoyed a lazy stroll along the coast to Southend dropping into a lovely cafe on the seafront and when we were in a rush to get back it is only 5 minutes on the train from Southend Central to Chalkwell Station which is just a couple of mins from the house. The house was lovely for my wife and I but what but it over the top was all the lovely touches for kids which made our young daughters stay perfect. Thanks!
Just perfect for a family stay
This is a wonderful property for a family stay! Easy access to the surrounding area, being 5 minutes from the beach and local train station, 2 mins from a small local grocery store, yet set well back from the busier roads, thus avoiding traffic and people noise. The property is comfortable, in good decorative order and true to its description. The owners had added thoughtful touches to make us feel welcome and help us settle in (e.g. a small supply of tea, coffee, milk, biscuits, detergents etc.). Highly recommended - we are booking again for next summer!
perfect place for family
The property is perfect for family with small kids. The owners provided us every possible items we may need, even beach and bath toys, children's books or plastic plates for children. There is plenty of space to park buggies in the hallway and rooms are comfortably big.
We were three families including three 4-years-children and a baby, and this property was just perfect. Thank you Nick and Jess!
Perfect location and beautiful place
This property is perfect for a family, there are 2 large double bedrooms and a kids bedroom. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a beautiful terrace perfect for an evening drink. The beach is a short walk away and there is a shop in sight. This property was ideal and the owners were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Thank you Nick and Jess xx
Lovely apartment in a brilliant location for gorgeous daily beach walks, Chalkwell Park, shops, restaurants and cafes. The extra touches like the welcoming tea, coffee, milk and even wine made for a lovely start to the holiday.
Thank you Nick and Jess, we will definitely be back!
Comfortable Extremely well Located property with excellent facilities.
This property was exactly as advertised and more. The location and outlook onto the square was amazing, near to all amenities, shops, rail station etc...
It was comfortable and the owners had provided every possible item to make our stay enjoyable even to the point of leaving a welcome picnic for our
late arrival. It was very clean and a tremendous amount of spare linen, towels etc.. was at our disposal. Booklets on how to operate all the appliances were readily available together with maps and pamplets of the surrounding area. The property in itself was very large, spacious bright and warm.
Parking was also taken care of as there was a garage and off road parking available.
This is the first time we have rented a property to spend Christmas in the UK and we were extremely pleased with the experience.
