About Kevin & Subhash

Local to the South Coast, This is a dream beach house loved, maintained and used by the family throughout the year. We have an eye for detail and have created an East Coast style experience after 10 years of living in California. The house has not been designed as a bland rental with no character, but a luxury home with all mod cons, and unique artwork collected from our world travels.

Kevin & Subhash purchased this house in 2016

Why Kevin & Subhash chose Selsey

The unique wooden construction and American style layout was love at first sight. Walking up the stairs and being greeted by the ocean view just sold it. The fresh ambiance and smell of a cedar wood built structure adds to the benefits of healthy living. Being close to major Motorways, Airports and city's like Chichester, Brighton, Portsmouth and Southampton is an added bonus. Seascape is ideal for Corporate, Couples and Family retreats by the sea.

What makes this house unique

Healthy and relaxing Beach Life living in a cedar wood upscale beach home, direct access to scenic beaches, seafront pub within walking distance along the beach, and beautiful countryside and nature reserve close by

A stunning house with beautiful personal touches with the best view!

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 friends who all love food, chatting and walks. We loved lounging in the sun (sun an added bonus!), swimming - yes I swam in the sea, walking along the beach, and sharing lovely food. We were impressed by the quality of the fittings - the bathrooms, linen, lighting, plenty of areas to lounge inside and out and the well kept gardens. It clearly is a well loved home for Kevin and Subhash and we benefitted from that. As well as eating in we took Kevin's top tips and went to Billy's on the beach - fab moules/frites and also the Crab and Lobster in Sidlesham - stunning birthday treat meal. We also had very friendly local taxi service who got to know us well! We would definitely book again...

Wonderful house, truly on the beach - every box ticked !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights over the first weekend of march 2018, a group of 8 celebrating my Sister in Law's 60 the birthday. The house is amazing, it quite rare to rent a house that is actually better than the photographs on the website, it is often the reverse. Where do I start ? The communal, family space is just perfect with plenty of sofas/soft furnishings and the wonderful panoramic view afforded by the 'wall' of windows. We stayed the weeked of Storm Emma and the weather on Friday night was epic, lashing rain and howling gales. We all sat snugly eating and drinking as the storm raged around us, it was wonderful. The Kitchen area is fitted to the highest quality and has everything anyone would need. All of the bedrooms are superb and flexible ( doubles can be made as twins ). The 3 bathrooms are luxurious , walk in Rain Head showers and oodles of hotwater ( a must when there are 8 of you ! ). Given the time of year, the large outdoor decking area was mainly a beer fridge ! But it is easy to see how idyllic it can be in the summer, brilliantly appointed with loungers and tables/ chairs. The access to the beach is simple i.e. 30 seconds away, a shingle beach as one would expect in Selsey that stretches for miles in both directions. Saturday dawned bright & sunny initially, the sunlight that floods the living space through the windows is wonderful, we managed a walk along the beach, before the weather beat us back into the warmth of the house. In conclusion, not one of us could fault a single thing and nor would we want to, we had a special family weekend that will remain in the collective memory forever. Thanks to Kevin & Subhash for being so easy to deal with and such considerate hosts. We will return in the future for sure.

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We spent NYE 2017/18 at the house. It was perfectly located on the beach which was also lovely to walk down in the mornings and during sunset. The sun rises literally in front of the house which made it a great way to start the day.

The beach has some fresh crab and seafood pop ups which are amazing too.

Even though it was cold when we visited I would highly recommend this house. I can’t wait to book another trip in the summer to take full advantage of the walks and scenic views!

Thank you for letting us stay, i came back so relaxed and refreshed - it was so nice to get away from the London Smoke!

Thanks again!
