Mac has over 20 years of fishing experience and knows all the good marks. Details in the house. A five minute walk will bring you to the local pub and all the shops you could want e.g. bakery, butcher, greengrocer, a very good Fish and Chip Shop and Off Licence. There are also fresh fish shops which sell locally caught fish, crab and lobster. Close by are Pagham Nature Reserve, SSSI, the cathedral city of Chichester with theatre, pedestrianised shopping, leisure centre, Goodwood and Fontwell racecourses, Butlins at Bognor Regis, The South Downs, and Portsmouth with day trips to the Isle of Wight. The Village itself has many restaurants and pubs, all of which are very acceptable with their individual character. There is also a Health Club with all the attendant facilities available. Selsey is very much an unspoiled village with it's unique community spirit - dogs are welcome almost everywhere and facilities for the elder person are very much catered for. For the younger generation there are clubs (in season) at the Bunns Leisure Centre and at other times close by. Or you could just lie on one of the many beaches! If you want to leave the car for a trip to Chichester or beyond there is a bus service every 15 minutes from the village. The nearest bus stop is less than a 5 minute walk from the house.More

We had a lovely holiday here, 6 adults and 5 children. We couldn't believe outlook, looking out from the balcony across a green to the promenade and over the sea. Plenty of things to do in the surrounding area. Good walk along the promenade, turn left and eventually you get to a nature reserve. The beach is very pebbly but we went into the sea most days so wasn't a big problem, plenty of laughs trying to get out! Probably maximum number of guests is 10 comfortably, but we also had a baby in a cot in addition. House well equipped and ground floor has a double and a twin bed with a kitchenette, 2nd floor has a kitchen and combined dining room and lounge with a balcony, and 3rd floor with a great double, twin and bunk beds. Suited us brilliantly, very flexible accommodation.

We have just spent a week in this delightful house. Views over the Channel from the safe balcony were but one of the highlights this accommodation offers. The beds were very clean and comfortable and there was plenty of hanging space, so often at a premium in holiday cottages. There was copious hot water even with ten people to shower. The kitchens are well equipped, making it simple to cater for a large number. Parking three cars was easy. What was not to like? Just two slight quibbles, the main kitchen is definitely a one cook space and there is no dish washer, so bring the grandkids!

Just come back from a week away and we had a fantastic time. Property in an ideal location,literally a 2 minute walk to the pebble Selsey beach. 15 minute walk into the town centre. It consists of a high street but lots of varieties of shops and 2 co-ops. There is an Asda on the way into Selsey as well. Lots of places to eat and drink. We loved Lal bar- Mediterranean cuisine and lovely cocktails. There were 11 places to drink (not that we were counting) and this included the Crab Pot, a micro pub which served an usual collection of ales and ciders, as well as gin, wine etc. Selsey is an ideal place to have as a base if you want to visit surrounding areas. We went to Chichester and Bognor for days out and also visited East and West Wittering. We were blessed with the weather so had plenty of beach days. There is a burger shack at the end of the street - 1 minute walk away and this is ideally placed next to a skate park. The house was great for all ages. Ideal home from home accommodation. We had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend it.

Superb house for our large family Christmas, particularly the stairlift which enabled my 91 year old mother to join in with everything. The house was dressed perfectly for Christmas with all the extras needed for our family of 3 children and 5 adults. Location was brilliant too, being able to watch the sunrise on Christmas morning from the balcony and to take the children to the nearby park and along the sea front. Will certainly visit again - maybe in the summertime when we can explore more.

We had a most fantastic week at life boat view. The house is extremely spacious and comfortable giving it a very homey feeling. The sea views are amazing and less than 2 mins walk until ire sitting at the beach. We definitely would recommend staying here. The owners were extremely accommodating and very helpful.

This was our fifth visit to Lifeboat View and yet again we have had a wonderful time. The house is so comfortable and well equipped and the views are simply amazing out to sea. Three adults and our dog for five nights with a lunch visit from five friends and the house never felt overcrowded. I discovered the pond around the corner which is an oasis of calm. Ducks and swans and plenty of seating for a picnic. We had dinner at The Seal once again which was superb. Picked up sublime pork scratchings from the farm shop on the way home. Thank you once again and hopefully we'll be back before too long!

This holiday let is ideal for all ages. We were an extended family reunion as this was a childhood holiday every year for us. It exceeded our expectations. There are plenty of options for places to relax if you don't feel like interacting with everyone!! Everything you need is there such as tea towels, pegs for the washing line, washing powder for the washing machine, salt, oil, flour, and some toiletries. I could go on but you get the idea you don't need to remember all those little things you miss on holiday as they are all there. The accommodation is very comfortable and the aspect of the main lounge being on the middle floor and looking out over the sea is beautiful. The showers are nice and powerful and the wifi was given the thumbs up by the teenagers. The area around has everything you need and Portsmouth and Brighton are also close enough for a day trip. We all really enjoyed our stay. Thank you Max and Mary

The ages in our party ranged from 6 to 76 and it is totally accurate to say that this property suited us all. The ground floor facilities and stair lift to the lounge area was perfect for a member of our party who was less mobile than most.The lounge itself had good quality comfortable seating for everyone to relax whilst watching TV or playing board games. Having meals looking out to the sea is truly wonderful. We travel widely, often staying in self-catering establishments and we must say that the kitchen here is the best equipped that we have come across. Without hesitation I would recommend this property to others.

We had a great time, as two young families met up for a holiday together. The house was well equipped and well positioned for the beach, skate and kids play park. There are a number of local shops to get essentials and ASDA isn't far away either. The owners were friendly and helpful, giving us loads of advice in advance of our stay. We hope to visit again sometime!

We have just spent our 2nd family Christmas here and the family of 9 plus one dog all agree it is the perfect house. Age ranges from 10 to 89 all catered for. Ideally situated with shops and restaurants nearby plus beach walks for people and dogs. The house is warm and very comfortable and extremely well equipped especially when catering for parties of 9 or 10. We have visited 4 times now and will return soon. Particular thanks for the Christmas decorations and treats. I hope you will enjoy it too!

About the neighbourhood
East Beach is a working beach with a fishing fleet that lands locally caught fish, lobster and crab every day which is available from one of the many outlets on the beach. Within 5 minutes walk is an extensive childrens play area with a BMX track and skateboard rink, a duck pond and an array of shops including the best (in our opinion) Fish and Chip Shop on the South Coast. All you could want is there; butcher, fresh bakery, green grocer and off licence with the added bonus of a dive shop offering divers access to the many dive sites close to the coast. Deep sea fishing is also available through chartered fishing boats owned by our friend 'Mac' McLaughlin. Further details on request.The village offers a broad range of shops to suit every taste and dogs are welcome almost everywhere. All...
