Guestbook comments from the owner

Booking this house was one of the best ideas we ever had. The house itself was quite awesome, the garden was great to spend time in the sun or have a lunch/dinner with the whole family in. A big thanks to Mike!. The equipment of the house is really great. We are sure we will come back again!

Maison adorable - impeccable - très confortable

  • 5 of 5

A tous les français qui souhaitent venir chez Mike, allez y de bon coeur, la maison est spacieuse, très bien agencée, impeccable, cuisine plus qu'équipée pour faire de bons plats, jardin très beau, à 5 mn de la mer et du débarquement en arrivant de Dieppe. Proche de Londres et position centrale pour visiter le sud de l'angleterre. Mike a été charmant, belles attentions à notre arrivée (sapin de noel et décoration pour que nous puissions passer noel comme à la maison et c'était le cas). Bonne adresse à garder et à recommander.

Nous étions 4 (2 adultes et 2 enfants) en provenance de Provence.

PS : ce n'est pas un bungalow (ca veut dire de pleins pied en anglais), bien équipée pour des personnes a mobilité réduite

The bungalow is well equipped,the owner having considered every need.It was really clean and tidy,the beds were comfortable and the bed lined of good quality.

The garden was delightful with lovely plants as well as a nice outside seating area.We could not fault the accommodation at all.The area is a working town so not a tourist spot ,we drove to places of interest and there are good transport links,especially the bus.We didn't eat out in Newhaven,so can't pass on any recommendations.

Agree indeed with all previous reviews!!

10 jours passés dans cette très agréables maison en briques (ne pas en rester au terme de "bungalow", inapproprié en français). Maison bien plus grande que les photos ne le suggèrent, tout le reste est parfaitement conforme à l'impression dégagée par les photos. Grandes et lumineuses pièces, cuisine et équipement magnifiques pour qui - comme nous - aime cuisiner, sur le jardin. Ce dernier est extrêmement bien entretenu, beaucoup de petits recoins tranquilles et sans aucun vis-à-vis. Nous confirmons les petits renards le soir! Charming. Très calme. Bien situé un peu en retrait du centre cette petite ville de Neaheaven m

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

We are a Swedish family of four who stayed in this lovely spacious house for two weeks. The place is clean and much effort has been put into the house to make sure the stay is as comfortable as possible. The garden is absolutely beautiful and the view magnificent.

We will defiantly return and give our highest recommendations.

Thank you Mike for your service and hard work to make our stay so comfortable.

Owner's Response: Karen and I are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for this very positive review. We look forward to your next visit. We know from your comments and from previous guest reviews that the house has been described as very comfortable and well equipped; and that its location is ideal, being in a coastal town in the Lewes District of East Sussex with easy access to the nearby coastal resorts of Eastbourne and Brighton which are situated about 30 minutes drive away along the coast road; and the Town of Lewes which is about 9 miles inland.

wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

The place is an absolute wonder. It's charming, the kitchen is well-stocked, alls of the rooms are clean and bright, everything has been thought of and provided for our comfort and happiness. We will very happily stay here again when we are back in England, thanks to Mike and Karen, who also managed to arrange the weather for our 6 week stay. :) Thanks so much!

Trés reposant

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans la maison de Mike qui est ravissante, plus grande que ce que l'on voit sur les photos,en très bon état, avec un très beau jardin. La maison est bien située, possibilité de faire ses courses à pied, visites de Brighton, Londres, château de Harundel ( superbe), Seaford, les villages typiques avec leurs brocantes et j'en oublie. Le temps était de la partie , nous avons pu prendre tous nos repas sur la terrasse ( en compagnie parfois le soir de renard des villes!). Vacances reposantes, dans un cadre agréable.

Owner's Response: We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your review and of course for the delicious Camembert and other delicacies that you brought to us from your region of France!. Many of our guests find the house to be very comfortable and a good size for their families. It is also in a good location for tourist trips within Sussex and to neighboring counties and even to London by train. We hope that you will come again.
