A unique and elegant luxury beach house set on an exclusive private estate in Middleton-on-Sea, West Sussex. It is draped with lavish, effortless style, with four of the five bedrooms featuring panoramic sea views and two with en-suites. Offering a hot tub, summer house, fabulous fire pit lounge area, copious amounts of space and direct beach access, Sun House is an exceptional large holiday home for families and responsible, discerning groups.
Coming into dock at this luxury beachfront rental on the south coast, kick your shoes off and venture straight to the huge south-facing garden, the ocean lapping at the shoreline just beyond. Designed to maximise al fresco beach life, the garden is a joy to behold with several distinct leisure areas. The ‘Skye Bar’ summerhouse opens fully on two sides with bifold doors, a spectacular dining space to make the most of the dramatic location in any weather. To the other side of the large lawn, a brilliant fire pit/BBQ seating area is perfect for a low-and-slow sunset amongst family and friends. No luxury beach house is complete without a hot tub; climb the decked steps into the bubbles to enjoy elevated sea views illuminated by LED lighting. Behind the sun lounger area in front of the house, there is also a hot shower to the side to rinse off after a day in the sand.
Not wanting to be outdone by the garden, this large beach cottage is quite some backdrop. A unique home stay dressed in extravagant yet refined luxury, with hints to its Art Deco heritage alongside cutting edge design and facilities. There are three immense social spaces to gather with friends and family, each almost stretching the entire length of this seaside home. The sitting room has an ample variety of comfortable armchairs and a huge corner sofa ready to sink into after a busy day of coastal capers. The 75-inch Smart TV with full Sky package is perfect for a family film night, and the wood burning stove will keep you cosy and warm in the colder months. It is a unique and evocative experience to be curled up in front of the fire, with a storm rolling in over the sea and the waves crashing outside.
Next door, the dining room is an exclusive entertaining space in front of the iconic sea view, while to the rear of this central atrium 'The Whisky Room' is an intimate spot for a night of cards and good spirits, or a separate space for the kids to hang out in front of the large Smart TV here. Through another set of doors, the phenomenal kitchen is stocked with every possible gadget, down to the built-in bean-to-cup coffee machine (see the ‘House info’ tab for a full list of facilities). The black granite island stretches some four metres in length to a breakfast bar and table looking out over the garden and coastline.
On the first floor are four of the five bedrooms. The titanic ‘Master Bedroom’ suite flows from the super king bedroom area in front of the French doors to the balcony, through to the dressing area and into its en-suite bathroom with separate shower enclosure. Wake up to the invigorating sea breeze, and snuggle up with an evening film on the Smart TV. Next door, Bedroom Three ‘The Pink Room’ is another huge bedroom with super king size bed, sea views and doors opening onto the south-facing balcony that stretches the full width of the house. Bedroom Four ‘Pineapple’ is a large king size, again opening onto the balcony and with a palm tree swaying gently outside. Bedroom Five is a smaller twin, perfect for the kids to hunker down after a busy day of paddling and sandcastle construction. Next to the twin is the large family bathroom, offering a large shower, double end bath and double sinks. From the smart landing with reading corner, Bedroom Five ‘The Crow’s Nest’ sits privately on the second floor of this Sussex beach house rental. With a king size bed, en-suite shower room and a Juliet balcony offering elevated sea views, it is a serene step back from the hustle of everyday.

Local areaWith its shallow waters revealing a vast swathe of sand at low tide, Middleton has long been established as one of the prominent beach destinations on the south coast. A low-key seaside village, it offers essential shops along with a couple of pubs and takeaways, and a very good fish and chip shop (it must be done!). There are some excellent restaurants nearby, including Fino in Felpham, Mustards and Chez Moi in Bognor, and The Boathouse in Littlehampton. A half hour stroll along the beach will bring you to The Lobster Pot in Felpham for fantastically fresh, simple seafood. This is a fabulous coastline to stretch your legs east to Climping and onwards to Littlehampton’s West Beach, or west to Bognor Regis and Pagham. Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve and Chichester Harbour a little further to the west are both areas of outstanding natural beauty, and a haven for unusual birds, wildlife and nature conservation, along with sailing centres at Itchenor and Bosham.
For an indulgent treat head to Bailiffscourt Spa in Climping. For a family day trip, head over to Butlins in Bognor Regis with its brand new indoor and outdoor water park ‘Splashworld’, and a range of entertainment and rides to keep the kids and grown-up kids happy. The historic market town of Arundel is just 6 miles up the road, and is well worth a trip to stroll the riverbank and see the iconic castle and the cathedral. Petite and cosmopolitan, the cathedral city of Chichester is only nine miles away with an excellent range of independent and high street shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Chichester Festival Theatre is well worth a visit; famous for its quality of theatre production, many of which premiere here before moving on to London. Just north of Chichester, the famous Goodwood Estate includes a motor circuit, racecourse and aerodrome and is home to the world-renowned Festival of Speed, Goodwood Revival and Glorious Goodwood (Qatar Festival).
