This unique holiday property, crafted to look like a boat, is ideal for a family, 60 yards from beach.

Crafted to look like a boat by the owner, who lives in the adjoining house, this unique holiday property is only 60 yards from the beach. Forming the ’bow’ of the boat, its features such as portholes, curved wall in the entrance/dining area and boat railings on the balcony all add to the feeling of being on the sea.

    Holiday was very nice only a few yards to the sea everything we wanted to do was close by. The only thing was the comfort of the bed could feel the springs so had back ache most of the week

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We thank you for reviewing the property, but we are very alarmed to see the scoring and the mention about the uncomfortable mattress. We are always here for our clients and always do say when you arrive, that if there are any problems to come and see us. We did see you and speak to you several times during the week and you never mentioned anything about this. It’s such a shame that you did not give us a chance to try and rectify the problem during your holiday, in order to help you, but also before putting on the review. We would now like to confirm that we will be ordering a new king size mattress tomorrow and will have it in place as soon as we can. We do hope you did enjoy the welcome pack, the Cava and all the information we gave you on your arrival. We also hope that you may come back and visit us again.

    Great cottage - querky and fun, would recommend without hesitation for a break with a small family. Quiet location which means you need a car to see things but that suited us. Beach is stony (same as Bognor ) that might put some off but very close. Lots of little extras and basics of washing and cleaning supplies provided which was very helpful.

    Response on behalf of the owner: Thank you very much for your review and we appreciate that you will pass on recommendation to your friends. We look forward to seeing you again.

    The bow is one of the best places we have stayed at, hosts are excellent, nothing was to much trouble. Plenty of dog friendly pubs within walking distance, beach is dog friendly all year round and the bow is obviously dog friendly. The bow has everything you need, and there are nice touches like, cold Cava and milk, chocolate biscuits and many more little extras. Will definitely return,gets 10 gold stars from us.

We are also happy that you appreciated the little touches we put in the property on your arrival to welcome you and make you feel at home. We look forward to seeing you again.

    Very good coastal location, great for walks and swimming. Cottage excellent apart from unexpectedly small bathroom.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you very much for the review, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. As we have mentioned before, the bathroom was only done a few years ago and we were advised to put a bath at the time, which makes it a bit smaller. When we refurbish, we plan to put a shower in the property only, making the area more spacious. However, thank you for your comments and scoring, much appreciated. We look forward to seeing you again.
