Family-Friendly, Newly Decorated House With Direct Access To Beach From Garden.

Overview

Property

Updated: 30-Nov-2016
Beach House With Fabulous Sea Views, Private Garden

Our beautiful clapboard beach house called ''Sunshine'', is located on a quiet, private road in Bracklesham Bay, less than 3 miles from West Wittering. Just a few steps from the back of the house across the large lawned garden and you are on the sand and shingle beach - perfect for children and adults alike! Relax on the New England style verandah, listen to the waves, enjoy al fresco meals, watch the sunset and even on less sunny days, stunning sea views across to the Isle of Wight may still be enjoyed from most of the rooms inside. There is also a private enclosed garden at the front of the house with a large trampoline and ample off-street parking for several cars. The house is beautifully decorated, but comfortable and practical too and has been thoughfully furnished and equipped with families and children in mind. The accomodation is flexible and sleeps up to 9 plus a baby or toddler in a cot, with 4 bedrooms available offering a range of different bed configurations depending on your needs. We have a well-stocked playroom / additional bedroom with a day bed which can be converted to a double bed, a variety of toys, books and DVDs for when the outdoor fun is over for the day and a number of useful children's items are available upon request, in addition to the cot. There is a family bathroom upstairs and a large, luxurious ensuite shower-room in the master bedroom. A further bathroom with bath and shower is downstairs and there is also an outdoor shower for sandy bodies! The kitchen, living room and dining area are open-plan in design and the living room and playroom both open out onto the verandah. On the verandah, there is a table which seats 8, plus further benches and sun-loungers. The beautiful beach at the end of our garden is popular with wind-surfers, surfers, stand-up paddle-boarders, fossil-hunters and dog-walkers. There is a great cafe at the end of the road called Billys at the Beach and a general store and post office. Further shops, cafes and restaurants may be found in nearby East Wittering.

About the Owner

Sunshine is owned by Paul and Jessica from Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire. We have 2 children aged 8 and 10. We bought the house when we were living in London when our first child was a tiny baby and extended and renovated it when our second was born. It is a much treasured family holiday home and we look forward to sharing it with you.

We loved your house and the decor - very beautiful - and treated it with the greatest respect. It is very personal and not the usual rental home...we will surely be back if we may!

A Little Piece of Martha's Vineyard in West Sussex

  • 5 of 5

We loved Sunshine from the minute we arrived. Everything about it was just superb, a lot of thought has clearly gone into this well loved family holiday home.

The quality of all the furnishings were 1st class and the beds were uber-comfortable which is always important with very good quality bedding. It is so spacious with a well equipped kitchen that was a pleasure to work in and a playroom that was very well received by my grandchildren.

Being right on the beach is such a treat and we were blessed with great weather for late October. Early every morning we all ran down to the sea to wave to the Isle of Wight :) we collected some lovely shells and rocks which now adorn various glass vases back home.

Fishers Farm is good day out and Chicester is also good for a bit of retail therapy. There is a garden centre called Russels just up the road on the way to West Wittering which is a must .. such unique gifts and their Christmas Shop was amazing.. visit you won't be disappointed. It was always such a joy to come back to Sunshine at the end of the day.

I think if you can't enjoy yourself in this lovely part of England in this exquisite beach house then there is something wrong. Well done Jessica on all you have achieved , we would dearly love to return, in fact I could easily pack up the kids, grandkids, dogs et al and spend the whole summer here....

A Memorable Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really wanted to keep Sunshine a secret, but decided it was only fair to share its delights with others.

From the moment of our first enquiry with the extremely helpful and friendly owner Jessica the whole process went smoothly.

Sunshine is a unique beautifully appointed and equipped home offering everything required by all generations plus much more. The website photos do not do Sunshine justice.

We were fortunate to experience wall to wall sunshine so the beach beckoned - body boarding, swimming fossil collecting or playing hockey on the sand when the tide was out. Therefore there was little time left to utilise the selection of children's toys and games or choose a book from the vast 'library' of books for all tastes and ages.

The gardens front and back are immaculate and the view from the verandah at the back down to the view of the sea over the gate between the tamarisk hedge is unforgettable. Eating on the verandah especially in the evening watching the sun set was special.

Thank you Jessica and family for allowing us to share a memorable week in your lovely Sunshine and for all you did not make our stay so very comfortable.

One word - Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday and this house was just perfect! Lots of room for a large family which was furnished and equipped to a high standard! Having the beach at the bottom of the garden was amazing!

I'd certainly recommend "Sunshine" and hope to stay again.

Family Ruby Wedding Anniversary Celebration

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful family house with excellent facilities and everything you could need for your stay. Large garden front and back with plenty of room for the 3 grandchildren to play games as well as a trampoline they could use. Property was clean and well maintained. Beach was easily accessible with sand at low tide and safe for swimming. Jessica, the owner, was very helpful and provided good information on local activities, restaurants etc. We would highly recommend Billys on the Beach - a cafe down the road that did great breakfasts. Would highly recommend this property.

Location

From the Owner

We all love coming to the house and have done so as often as possible for the past 10 years. We love falling asleep to the sound of the waves, listening to the howling of the wind and watching the waves crash in the winter. Paul is a keen windsurfer and windsurfing from the beach just outside the back garden is a real thrill! Our children have grown up first paddling, then surfing and kayaking in the sea just outside the house, scrambling in the dunes at East Head, beach-combing, walking and having wind surfing lessons at West Wittering every summer. We all love chilling out on the verandah and have enjoyed many family gatherings there. There is so much to do in the area and almost every trip we find something new. We hope you and your families enjoy the house and the beach and surrounding area as much as we do.
