“Spacious, well equipped, fantastic for a family break”
Reviewed August 25, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed here with the whole family (parents, kids, aunties, uncles, nanny, grandad). The 10 of us found the house to be perfectly spacious, and the self contained 'flat' on the ground floor was a little haven of peace and quiet for my parents away from the rest of us! The balcony in the lounge was always in use and on wet days it was lovely to watch the sea and fishing boat from the comfort of the sofas. Bedrooms were clean and spacious, and the kitchen was very well equipped - we had a lovely evening in feasting on the fresh crab and seafood that we bought from the beach that evening. The park and skate park and pond are ideal for kids, and the Lifeboat pub good for the adults! Thank you for a lovely stay

“simply, the best !”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I found this Selsey home on the internet as we need a place to stay for my sister's wedding in Amberley. We have small kids with us, so I wanted a place where it is family-oriented & kid-friendly rental property. This home is a perfect match for us. There's enough space for everybody: the bedrooms are nice size, bathrooms are well-equipped, kitchen and dining room are even more equipped. It has a comfortable homey feel in every corner: comfy furnitures, clean bbq patio, excellent location. We will never forget our stay in this house. I will stay there over and over again, and highly recommend it to anybody. From New York: thank you Max & Kath --- u two rock!

“Excellent View”
Reviewed January 15, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

I booked this house over the New Year for 10 of us(6 adults 4 kids ages 9-16). The house has everything that we required. Excellent location for the beach, who needs a telly in the morning when you can sit and watch the sunrise over the sea. The lounge was big enough for all of us to relax in with full width window/patio doors. The kitchen is well equipped if slightly small, but we managed to cook for all of us with no problem. Bedrooms are good, we all slept well. Picking up the keys was not a problem. We ate at the local pub( you won't go hungry there with the size of the portions) which was good and the staff were friendly. Good parade of shops within walking distance. Overall great value for your money

“We were very comfortable”
Reviewed November 2, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

My partner and I were looking for a 2 bed room property. (one for us and one for her if I snored) We chose this property for it's location, over looking the sea, shops and pub near by and a green across the road for the dog. My partner complained in the visitors book that there was no dishwasher, but she had a very good one "Me" as I did all the washing drying and putting away.
There was a good fish and chip shop close by and a number of take away that would deliver free or for a small charge. I liked the kitchen which we used for breakfasts and some evening meals.
We felt comfortable and relaxed during are stay and had no problems organising are stay, getting the keys or returning them.

“Ideal holiday house for families”
Reviewed September 3, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

My family, including six adults, three children and a baby, had a very enjoyable week staying at Lifeboat View. It is in a very good position with views to the sea but also within walking distance to local shops, playground etc. The house is extremely well equipped - the owners have thought of everything! The location is a very good base to explore other resorts along the coast and also has a frequent bus service into Chichester.
