Stunning Beach House with direct access to the beach from the garden

Waterfront holiday home with kitchen and balcony
A stunning 1950's beach house, quirky, artistic and different, which has been featured in many magazines. This house has been remodelled and decorated with a lot of love and care. It is meant to feel like a proper home from home and not a typical holiday house. There is direct access to the sea and beach at the end of the garden. The house is located within easy reach of GOODWOOD Racecourse, and the famous Chichester Theatre, the fabulous Pallant House Gallery and the South Downs.

There are 3 double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom and 3 bathrooms (2 ensuite). All the beds are fully made up for your arrival with high quality linen and bed toppers. Towels are supplied.

The master bedroom has its own balcony with an amazing sea view. 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 an oven, fridge, microwave , full range of cooking utensils, dishwasher, washing machine and separate tumble dryer. Fully stocked with tableware, cutlery, loo rolls, cleaning products, dishwasher tablets etc.

There is a smart TV, an Apple TV with Netflix and a DVD player. Free wifi throughout the house with fast internet. There's also a large selection of art and photography books 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 off street parking for 4 cars. There is an outside table and chairs to seat 8 people on the decking at the rear of the house. We also have a selection of deck chairs.

There is a summer house in the garden for quiet moments or romantic drinks, lots of beautiful art books to browse through. There is even an outside bath with hot water for washing the sand off your wetsuits or your dog when you come off the beach!

The beach is ideal for swimming and popular for wind surfing, paddle boarding and kite surfing. It is the same beach as West Wittering but in a less crowded and more peaceful section of the beach. You can walk along the beach for miles, all the way to the famous East Head Dunes which is owned by the National Trust.

The local shops are in East Wittering, a 5 minute drive away. There's a fantastic local butchers and fishmongers with the catch of the day, and a well stocked Co-op with most of the day to day items that you might need. Waitrose and M&S are in Chichester about a 20 minute drive away. Waitrose does home deliveries to the house if you pre-order.

The owner has a separate, self contained annexe at the front of the house which she uses from time to time as an office. It has its own entrance and does not intrude on your privacy. The property manager, Marilyn, lives nearby and is always on hand to help if needed.
Guest accommodation at this holiday home offers fireplaces and DVD players. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils.

Beautiful stay near West Wittering
The property is absolutely beautiful with lovely furniture and artwork throughout. The house is very cozy, despite it being incredibly blustery outside. It’s a short drive or slightly longer walk to West Wittering, a lovely beach, with some great pubs in the area too.

Lovely house by the sea
This is a stylish cared for property right on the beach. It was well kitted out, has a great sociable downstairs space, nice garden and comfortable summerhouse. Perfect for our party of two couples and two children.

Unbeatable location and a lovely house
A lovely house, comfortable for 2 families of 4 with a great table to eat at, accommodating all of us. But the best thing about the house is that it’s garden backs directly onto the sea. An absolutely unbeatable location and very near a couple of places for take away/to eat. Highly recommend a fossil walk if you’re with children!
