About the property

Beach House, Near. Chichester, West Sussex, UK, Near West and east Wittering

A stunning 1950's beach house, quirky and different, has appeared in many magazines. The sea is at the end of the garden so no excuses not to swim!

Excellent access for Goodwood and the Chichester theatre. Great wind surfing, paddle boarding and kite surfing. We are on the same beach as West Wittering, but less crowded and more peaceful. The local shops are in East Wittering and have everything you need. I have a self contained annexe near the front of the house with its own entrance and which does not intrude on your privacy. My house keeper lives nearby and is always on hand to help if needed.

There are 4 double bedrooms 3 bathrooms all the beds are made up with top end linen and luxury bed toppers. Only one bedroom has a sea view and has an ensuite bathroom. There is a double bedroom with an ensuite on the ground floor with a shower. The 3rd double Bedroom has the use of the same bathroom as the twin bedroom. The kitchen has oven, fridge, microwave, full range of cooking utensils. Fully stocked with plates glasses bowls etc. We supply towels.

TV is a smart tv and has net-flicks there is a DVD player. Fast Internet. We also have a very large selection of art book for your enjoyment . There is constant hot water and very good heating as well as a wood burner fire, so the house is lovely in the winter as well as the summer. The Garden is fully secure with gates and there is parking for 4 cars. There is an outside bath with hot water for washing of the sand or relaxing in.

About Crena

I'm a photographer mostly working in London and Paris. I would like to rent my house out to people who are looking for something a little different from the norm, and want to relax. It's great waking up and having the sea right there in the garden.

Crena purchased this house in 2009

Why Crena chose West Sussex

I bought this house in 2009 as a retreat from London life it's peaceful but not too isolated. It is convenient for London and Chichester is only 7 miles away. It has a lovely warm vibe in summer and winter.

What makes this house unique

It's not often you find a house that has the beach at the end of the garden, it's also great having Chichester so near, so one can be a beach bum as well as having a little culture! The sea here is safe, great for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and wind surfing. Long walks on the beach to East Head owned by the National trust.

Goodwood is close by, also Pallant House Gallery and the Chichester theatre.

Stunning house with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Me, my husband and 2 children stayed at the Beach House for a week. What a truly amazing experience. The house itself is fabulous, and unbelievably well equipped. There is everything you could possibly need. The views of the coast are stunning, what a way to wake up every morning. Thank you again Crena x

Amazing stay in very comfortable and nice house

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing 5 days in the starfish house with great weather too. We were welcomed by the owner of the house who gave her the keys and a few tips on the house and areas. She was lovely and friendly. The location of the house is right on the beach, so the kids had a fantastic time playing in the garden during high tide and playing on the beach during low tide. I can only recommend this place. The house is very comfortable and decorated with great taste. Everything was working well. We considered ourselves to be privileged to be able to stay in this place. Thank you to Crena!

The property is lovely, and even nicer than in the photos. Very stylish yet comfortable

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we booked the house for the bank holiday weekend Crena was very helpful, and was even there to meet us on arrival.

The house is beautiful and has direct access to the beach. Our group consisted of two families and it worked great, but would also work for 3-4 couples.

The house has everything you can think of and would need, and is also within walking distance of great places to eat and drink.

We will defiantly book again

Beautiful, stylish, interesting, comfortable, functional house, right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very special long-weekend away at this gorgeous house. We spent the whole time feeling incredibly lucky to be there. There are so many different places to sit and read and to admire the view. The beds are incredibly comfy and every room is lovely. The house is full of interesting objects, books and furniture. The sea is right there at the end of the garden which is really special, and perfect for a quick dip, then a run back to the garden for an outdoor hot shower! Crena was welcoming and helpful- a perfect host. The location is great too. We had a lovely walk along the beach to East Wittering for lunch (Samphire- delicious!), and then on to West wittering to admire all the posh houses along the seafront. We decided ours was the best though and would love to come back one day.
