We've now stayed at Fairhaven for 3 consecutive years, that sums it up as regards a review. If you come back 2 times there is not much greater endorsement of a Holiday Let, (and the people that manage it : thanks staff @ Baileys !!). Overall apart from 3 stays at Fairhaven we also visited East Wittering, (staying at another Baileys run Holiday Let), in 2012, and 2013), which is also a more general endorsement, for East Wittering, as a place to spend a holiday. One final recommendation, we are looking to return next year !!
Tailwinds is a fabulous home with lots of space for all the family. There were 12 or us including littlies of 2yrs and up. You will need to take your own toys as there's no basket with anything for little ones but a few games for slightly older children. The property is right on the beach and much fun was had just throwing the pebbles into the sea!!! All in all a fantastic place to stay.
Well equipped, good size family house with loads of space and showers for 8 adults. 3 minutes walk from East Wittering main street, and 3 minutes to beach. Kitchen is exceptional with great storage, fridges, freezers, and equipment. Great laundry also. Large lawn and lovely deck area. Ample off-street parking. Main shower room is beautiful. Would love to return and would love to live in a house like this permanently! Had a small query when we arrived and Baileys responded within minutes. Very good service.
Our stay in Berry Barn Cottage was to celebrate my husband's 70th Birhday. Our whole family joined us and 2 family dogs. To say our stay was perfect was an understatement, from start to finish it was something we will remember forever, this cottage is an absolute joy. Everything is in place and thoughtfully provided, spotlessly clean and so welcoming, we will visit again soon.
We stayed at Seasalt over the New Year period and it was perfect for our family. The house was clean, warm and inviting on arrival and we quickly found everything we needed. There were good instructions both for the house and for things to do in the local area. We mostly spent our time enjoying lovely walks on the amazing beach close by and warming ourselves back up in front of the wood burner back at Seasalt. The house is well presented, everything we needed was there, the beds were comfy - what more could you need? We will definitely be coming back. Thank you.
Turritella is a fabulous place to stay. It feels light and spacious with plenty of room for eight people. Keeping the hedge low gives wonderful views of the sea and it is a delight to sit outside and watch the world go by - depending on the weather! The kitchen is well provided for with everything you need. We usually take bikes down and it's only a three to four minute ride into East Wittering for more supplies. Having two butchers, two greengrocers and two small supermarkets so close is brilliant. The staff at Baileys are always helpful and cheerful. Can't recommend Turritella highly enough.
We had a lovely few days staying at Dolphins with family. The location was great, the house was well stocked and in a great condition, nice big beds and a fantastic garden. The kids loved the trampoline, the bunk beds upstairs and the playroom stacked with books and toys! We will definitely be returning... Thank you
Lovely comfortable property. Very well equiped with all you need. Lovely garden great for sitting out when weather good. Very close to the sea and village centre short walk away.
This house is very well presented and provided everything we needed for a short break. The views are breathtaking from the main living space and the master bedroom and snug. The master bath has great views and, like the bedroom, is large and luxurious. Our friends loved the accommodation and the direct access to the beach for the various walks nearby. This is a great space for a family or friends get together. Baileys organised everything brilliantly and the house was warm and welcoming when we arrived.
Very nice stay big and spacious nice garden for kids , "..."".".."...................................
Wonderful location, just wish it was a bit more affordable as this will probably preclude another visit. Also ziplink beds would be much appreciated as an option - hence only a good for comfort as non-couples had to share a bed.
I have been staying in East Wittering for the last 60 years and so it has a very special place in my heart, since 2014 we have been staying in 46, Seagate Court and absolutely love it - it is lovely to be so close to the sea and perfect that there is a lift in the block which makes getting the suitcases to the property very easy, The property is very clean and comfortable and just perfect for us - we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. The views are wonderful whatever the weather, there is always something going on and we only have to go out of the door and across the lawn and we are on the b...more
This was our third year of staying at Happy Days, we were there again from the 14.02.2020 to the 01.03.2020 & there is a strong possibility of us staying again around the same dates in 2021. The only downside, is the bed in the first double room you come to, there is a lump in the middle of the mattress, I am guessing where the mattress doesn't get turned. Maybe this is a memory foam mattress & can't be turned, if that is the case, then a new mattress is definitely required. I had the same with this bed last year & it did not make for a comfortable sleep. The kitchen drawers could do wi...more
This is the second time l have stayed Sea Shanty it is a lovely house in a magical location.Hope to return in 2020.
This appartment is virtually on the beach with amazing views to the Isle of Wight. Spacious and well appointed making it ideal for a seaside break.Recommended.
The house and location was great. Parking for two cars, although driving in the drive is challenging due to angle and width, but is fine with careful planning. There were games and toys provided for both adult and children, as well as a DVD player with a selection of discs for those rainy days or quiet times. Any questions or issues were resolved by Baileys estate agents promptly.
A lovely house, with great facilities. We had a really enjoyable and comfortable time. Would definitely recommend to others.
Quirky bungalow converted from railway carriages situated right by the sea. Garden protected from wind by thick tamarisk hedge great for sitting outside. Ample parking.
The flat was very well equipped with everything we needed. The view/position could not be bettered (agree tho, shame about the obscured glass on the balcony). Whilst the kingsize bed was very comfortable, the twins were squidgy. Perfect place to unwind for a week, and walk for miles on the beach.
We have stayed here every year for around 5 years, the location is fantastic literally a 2 min walk to the beach and 5 mins into the town. It is a great property and has a enclosed garden at the back making it great for families. Highly recommended and we will be back again!
The bed/mattress in double room is very uncomfortable. The downstairs toilet is so extremely small that my mother could not use it and had to go home as she is 86 and uses a walker. Perhaps some consideration could be given to making this more usable with grab rails and a comfort height toilet. The TV did not work on normal channels so we used our Netflix account to watch movies and the keys to the rear door could not be found. We always enjoy our time in the Witterings, this home is perfectly situated with a large garden. Very clean and tidy.
We have stayed at this property before for the same purpose so this review is something of a comparison. The lounge furniture has been replaced and is now very comfortable. The heating and hot water are as good and efficient as before, keeping us warm and cosy in some very windy weather. The beds arrangement has not changed and while they are good the twin bedroom has a smaller single which is getting tired and only adequate for a small child. The dining area in the conservatory is pleasant but you will need to keep the heating on for meal times when its cold. Overall there are a few smal...more
This apartment has the most amazing views along the beach and across the Solent to the Isle of Wight so when you don't feel like going out you can watch the world go by from your ringside seat in the light and airy sitting room. It's worth remembering that as it's on the third floor there are some stairs to climb, regrettably no lift in this block, but well worth the effort! The well equipped kitchen was also a plus with plenty of cutlery and china to go round, an aspect sadly overlooked in many self catering properties but not this one. Comfortable beds and stylish furniture all made for a...more
Great property, all its needs is an easier way to turn the car around in front of the house. Location excellent, easy access to the beach.
This was a multi-generational week by the sea - and it proved to be pretty perfect. Our 3 grandchildren, 7, 4 and nearly 5, loved the little grass garden area next to the beach, playing there overlooked by the adults having a glass of wine on the balcony. We all loved being able to step straight out on to the beach whenever we wanted. We didn’t use the car all week but the path in front of the house was perfect for the children’s bikes and scooters - especially with the ice cream kiosk at the end. The house was very comfortable and extremely well equipped - I think we found just about everyth...more
We enjoyed our stay even though we had problems we smoke alarm upstairs great location the stairs are dangerous with downstairs toilet
We had a great relaxing week. Perfect quiet location and we loved the house. Only issues we had as follows: We could not get the hob to work all week - it needs instructions Top bunk mattress is poor - you can feel the springs The Shower is not easy to turn on and off - the children could not switch it off We could not get ITV channel to work on the tv Could have done with the following: Tea towels Placemats Parasol for the garden
Was staying in another accommodation and wanted a short break for rest of family (4 adults 2 teenagers and 2 toddlers) to stay to celebrate a 70th birthday. Property ideal - big conservatory for family meal. Bedrooms ideal 2 up 2 down. Toddlers loved toys. Son in law kites access straight on beach. Beautiful view of sea from balcony.
The flat was extremely comfortable and in an ideal location. The wifi was very good. The heating system is so out of date (electric storage heaters) that I brought my own oil filled radiator which was far more efficient and cheaper to use. The only complaint is that that there is no mobile signal to be had anywhere on the estate which is very frustrating.
Comfortable and relaxing flat with stunning views of the beach and the isle of wight. Warm and cosy. Plentiful hot water. Easy access to shops, cafes and the beach.
The house was not clean quite dusty the beds are very uncomfortable the taps were not fixed properly to en suite bathroom a plug socket was loose in bedroom lights not working in garden so very dark in evening the house very basic not worth £1700 at all for a week very overpriced there was a musty smell in bedrooms have rented houses from baileys for years now this has got to be worse one
Advertised as recently refurbished but didn't look like it had been done for years as paint flaking off walls in sun room and dining area, couple of radiators rusty. Rooms had cobwebs, bathroom and wc had hair balks on floor kitchen work top, dining table and coffee table were sticky to touch. The settees were uncomfortable as support to seats had stretched and sagged, covers over were faded and stained. Only good thing was the size of property, views and proximity to amenities.
Property was very comfortable, spacious, relaxing and private. Great for children and good location. Sofas & beds good. Kitchen well equipped and great dining area. Lovely gardens, very quiet. Decor a little dated. However we enjoyed our stay and would book again.
Our first stay in this beach house of a rather quirky design. We all enjoyed our stay at West Hale. An ideal place for a summer holiday if the weather is fine and sunny, but I noted a few damp issues with the old building as unfortunately our weather was stormy and wet. I would recommend more reliable faster WiFi for the teenagers!
Very dirty in general. Dishes very dirty even there was a tea bag left in the teapot, the kettle was so dirty we had to descale it ourself. There was few things broken in the house like furniture. The sofas were uncomfortable and as there was no cushions this made it worse. We had to clean the lounge window as that was the only we could do, it opens to the inside. The pillows are old and uncomfortable. We couldn’t open the windows when it was windy because of its design. We had a lot better time in 5 Seagate few years ago.
We were delighted with the location of the property. Stunning view's from master bedroom. Good shower's. Brilliant addition of fire basket on private beach area. It was fantastic watching the sunset sitting round an open fire. Most essentials in situ but it lacks a few basics. In the Master bedroom:- A dressing table or equivelant. A chair. A toilet door. This is essential!! Bath is very exposed and tap not very secure. The walk in wardrobe area had inset lights but no switch? Elsewhere:- Hooks for robes & or clothes in all bathroom's. The single beds are much too low which is ...more
This is the third time we have stayed at 1the g g I think that speaks for itself although the weather wasn’t kind being in a cosy property makes things better.
House was OK but a bit dated. The kitchen and bathroom were not very clean. The shower in bathroom needs replacing as it was very difficult to adjust to a decent temperature. Very difficult to park car on drive.
