The space
The Flat:
An elegant 1 bedroom flat with unobstructed, panoramic sea views across the West Hill Common, the East Hill Nature Reserve and the English Channel.
Boasting dark wooden floors throughout, an open marble fire place, high ceilings, tastefully decorated in vintage seaside charm, making it a very attractive and convenient one-bedroom holiday apartment to suit 2 (or 4) people.

Bedroom:
Has a relaxing and extremely comfortable double bed with plenty of light during the day and black-out curtains at night.
The bedroom has two windows, facing the back of the house, which are double glazed, allowing you to have a quiet nights sleep.
There are a selection of books and magazines to read on the vast shelves of the bedroom (please leave the books and magazines in the flat, or have a chat with me about borrowing any, if you are too engrossed in a story to leave it behind ;-)
A cot bed can be provided for babies/ toddlers, with prior warning.
Just outside the bedroom, you will find an iron and ironing board as well as a useful umbrella for those rainy English days, and a sun tent to protect the little ones when it's too hot on the beach.
In this same cupboard you can find a laundry hanger, a wooden baby's high chair, a Henry Hoover, mop, broom and a wicker mat for the beach.

Living Room:
With a gorgeous grey marble fireplace as its centrepiece and TRULY unobstructed breathtaking sea views across the West Hill, East Hill and English Channel. The living room also benefits from a double sofa bed, to cater an additional two people.
I have also provided a wicker basket of children's toys, to entertain little ones, should they also be our guests and a backgammon/chess set, plus Trivial Pursuit for "bigger kids".
A retro DAB radio - with iPod/iPhone dock - can be found on the "gramophone", to add a bit of ambience to your stay (and charge up your iPhones).
There is also a selection of magazines, for your browsing pleasure, in the magazine rack.
(Please leave the books and magazines in the flat)

*Please note there is NO TELEVISION in the flat... although there is an active TV license so you can enjoy all licensed channels on laptops, iPads and other mobile devices.

Kitchen:
A tidy and intimate kitchen, with gorgeous reclaimed teak work surfaces, which benefits from a washer/dryer, fridge, double oven, 4 hob gas cooker and all the conveniences of a modern home.
You can find a kettle, toaster, hand blender, a wide selection of glasses, mugs, plates and vases as well as a few cook books to inspire you (if you are thinking of eating in).
A selection of "Take Away" menus can be found on the rack in the hallway - If you are a fan of Indian food Jali is a favourite of ours.
Under the sink you will be able to find any cleaning products you may need during your stay.
A fire extinguisher (in case of fire) is located to the left of the kitchen, on the counter.
Next to the kettle you will find an "HONESTY JAR", for you to add a contribution if you break or misuse anything. Please be as generous as you feel is right to, so that guests after you can also enjoy these added perks.
In the kitchen I have added a folder (grey/blue) with all my favourite places to eat, drink, see and do in Hastings.

Bathroom:
A light and modern bathroom, with toilet, sink, bathtub and hand held shower. Body soap, shampoo/conditioner can be found here too.
In the bathroom you will also find a small first aid kit, in case of bumps and grazes (and in case of Hair Emergencies, a Vidal Sassoon full power hair dryer, a curling wand and BabyBliss travel hair straighteners can be found in the bedroom on top of the red cupboard).

Recently, I have ensured that all beauty products (Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash, Hand Soap, Washing Up Liquid etc...) provided in my property are Vegan, Organic, Chemical & Sulphate Free. FAITH IN NATURE is the company that ticks all the boxes, and I purchase their products in bulk (which I then use to refill the glass jars in the bathroom and kitchen).
I have done this to play my part in reducing my (our) plastic, waste, chemical consumption & impact on the environment - as well as the more obvious animal welfare issues, which I feel passionate about. www.faithinnature.co.uk

The flat also uses 100% renewable energy, from a company called Bulb (who provides 100% of its electricity generated from Wind, Solar and Hydroelectrics). Click this link to join up in your UK property: www.bulb.co.uk/refer/bindud7875

Guest access
Guests will have the flat to themselves at all times.

It is situated on the first floor and of course, there are neighbours, on the floors above and below, who need to be respected. Many thanks for understanding this...

Guests have access to the flat via the main front door and up the stairs to the first floor.

An entryphone is situated inside the flat, to the right of the front door, for your convenience.

The Middle Bell outside the building pertains to the First Floor Flat.

Other things to note
We can provide a travel Cot Bed and a Highchair should you need one.
Please let us know of your requirements when you make your booking.

If you are 2 people, who won't be sharing the double bed and you require the sofa bed as well, please make your booking by stating you are 3 people (as this required more linen, preparation etc).

All beauty products in the flat are Organic, Vegan, Sulphate and Chemical free from FAITH IN NATURE. www.faithinnature.co.uk

The flat uses only 100% renewable energy from a British provider called Bulb.

My name is Bindu. I'm a mum, a partner, a trained actress, a scriptwriter, a film director, an avid crafter, an amateur sewer, wannabe baker, cookbook hoarder, crochet enthusiast, thrifter, vintage shop browser and car boot sale wonderer... My family and friends make my world light up... Some other of my loves include watching and making films, anything arts & crafty (if I can make it with my hands... it brings me joy), travelling the world (I greatly value a good airport), feeling a sense of progression (and completion - ticking off my To Do List = huge personal satisfaction) and most importantly, laughing (which my husband and my children make me do, a lot)... Top travel destinations include India, Mexico, New York and European city breaks like Copenhagen, Stockholm, Amsterdam and Paris to name a few... I collect cookbooks (which I flick through in awe) and all kinds of Arts & Crafts books (from sewing to knitting... Crochet to paper crafts...), favourite films generally feature a strong female contingent, and Scandinavian TV series are a must... as is "The Crown" of course ;-) If you were a guest of mine you would be made to feel very welcome (in a manner befitting my Italian roots). I am bi-lingual in English and Italian and speak conversational German and French, as well as basic Spanish... If that helps you and adds value to your stay.
