About the property

The apartment is also only a 15 minute drive from Southend London Airport with extensive flights across Europe.

The apartment has three double bedrooms. It is currently set up with a double bed in the master bedroom, a double bed in the second bedroom and two single beds in the third bedroom. A travel cot can be supplied on request.

Spacious 3 bed flat

  • 5 of 5

This fantastic flat was ideal for me and my elderly parents to stay whilst they were having a new bathroom fitted. It definitely had a very homely atmosphere and as both my parents have mobility problems and use walking frames so apart from a few loose rugs (which I rolled up and put in a cupboard) this flat was so spacious for them to move around without having to discard their frames. The flat catered for all our needs and was well equipped for our stay and it was very thoughtful of the owners to leave us milk and some biscuits for a much needed cuppa after our journey. As we have friends and family around the area the accommodation was ideally situated for visiting, visits and outings to the local amenities. The veranda is an extra bonus and we spent a few hours basking in the much unexpected sun. Overall a very positive and welcoming experience and all three of us would highly recommend staying here.

Perfect for young family

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

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
