Owner's Response: Gilles, his family and their little dog were really delightful guests. We can not recommend them enough as guests . They embraced our quirky home and surrounding area. The house was left immaculately, many thanks and hopefully you will come back and visit it would be a pleasure.

80th Birthday in Bognor Regis

  • 4 of 5

25 The Steyne is exactly like it looks in the photographs. Period house all decorated in keeping with the period. Very warm and the beds are comfortable. Kitchen is well equipped and the owner very helpful.

Downside - lots of stairs - probably not the best for the elderly - although there is a bedroom with bathroom access on the ground floor.

Plumbing - shower downstairs very unpredictable! All in all - we had a lovely time - tiqht squeeze for a family of 10 adults and teenagers bedroom wise - but fine for the weekend. Had a fantastic meal in the Navigator Hotel on the Saturday night - right up my mum and dads street and the staff were so friendly!

Large, well-kept house, very close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

This was a great rental as a base for touring Sussex and beyond. During our stay we went to Petworth House, Portsmouth's Historical Dockyard, Arundel, Butlin's for the day and Chichester. Bognor beach is a minute's walk away to clear the head in the morning. The house was well-kept, with plenty of space to get lost in for a bit of quiet time away from the kids. Had a fantastic half-term away with the kids.

Lovely family accommodation next to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this property for a stay in Bognor Regis. The property was spacious, clean and a stones throw from the beach. We felt totally at home, welcomed with milk, flowers and prosecco! The kids loved it and were able to cross the road to the gardens to play. Linens and towels were high quality and in plenty, lovely additional touches such as buckets, spades and body boards available for use. We will definitely use again if we are visiting the area.
