Korinne Le Page purchased this House in 2003
Why Korinne Le Page chose Seaford
I was living in West Sussex and I had friends in Seaford and was surprised how lovely it was when I visited them. One Sunday, after a very nice lunch, we had a look at some properties and the rest is history!
What makes this House unique
I love the Town, the beach and how accessible it is. There are some lovely little places to eat or have tea, coffee or a drink and so much to do and see in the area. For shopping, there are some nice shops in Seaford and for the larger stores, Eastbourne, Brighton and Lewes are nearby. There are very few self-catering places to stay in Seaford. If you would like to stay at mine, you will enjoy the location, the comfort and facilities. I hope you come and enjoy Seaford soon too!

Great place to stay
I was working in the area and this was ideal for my needs
Thank you Pauline for your review.
Not up to the standard one would expect
No curtains in the living room, no plug in kitchen sink.
Mattress very old and bed linen didn't match.
However, good position in Seaford.
Thank you for your review and for alerting me to these issues. I would have been happy to resolve your issues during your stay if you had raised these with me then. It is only when people tell me that I am aware.
The living room curtains are in hand, I have asked my cleaner where the plug is to the kitchen sink, as it was there before and I am going to replace the mattress.
I trust this has reassured you that I have taken your feedback seriously.
We stayed for 3 nights in late october. There were 5 of us, 2 adults and 3 children aged less than 4yrs. The property was clean and mostly well maintained. Instructions for the electricity meter could have been better, and there were non-existent instructions for the TV / SKY Box /Playstation. This was not a good property for little children - boxes of DVDs on the floor, wiring for the multitude of electronic gadgets lying on the floor, all far too tempting to play with for the children and hence stressful for the parents. For adults, this is a great property.
With just 150m to the sea, the property is in a perfect location. Supermarket opposite, plenty of good shops in town, and the surrounding area is great.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and I am glad you enjoyed the property. In answer to the points you made: -
Instructions for the electricity meter are in the Hoisekeeping Info and as I recall, you had forgotten to bring these with you and so I re-sent them. Instructions for the TV/PlayStation are also included in the Housekeeping Info. And there is a motive in the house saying guests are welcome to use the DVD's and these can be played via the PlayStation.
The DVD's are stacked up behind a table and I am unaware of any boxes on the floor - I will check this out. I have had many guests with small children and they have found everything perfectly fine.
The wiring is all contained in a tube behind the TV so I am unsure why there would have been a multitude of cables. Again, I will check this out. You did not mention which electronic gadgets were lying on the floor, as there are no further gadgets than the Wii and PlayStation, which are on a table? While children are very welcome,
I do not allow pets in the property.
While in a very good location it does seem as the property requires a bit of updating.
Great location and helpful owner. However there were issues including none of the beds being made for our arrival, and the washing machine being filled with what I can only assume may have been towels meant for our stay. The cleaner issue does need to be resolved. The garden is advertised with the property but is in no fit state to use as it is filled with rubbish and no real useable furniture. The propert does need some running repairs in a few minor areas and unfortunately these can take away from what is overall a lovely house ideally located within the town and right next to the seafront. Overall a nice property in need of some care and attention.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We did talk on the phone about the issue with the
cleaner who had let me down and I apologised then and explained the reasons and, as you know, this is in fact resolved and I do have a new cleaner.
Re: the garden - I can assure all guests that this is not filled with rubbish - there are some marquee poles over to one side (out of the way), covered with a tarpaulin, awaiting collection. Apart from this, there are plant pots that need re-planting. As for the unusable furniture, when I was at the house fairly recently, the chairs and table were all in good working order and I had provided an outdoor tablecloth for use outside. There are also cushions provided and these are available in the utility room. I would be grateful if you could kindly expand on what is the issue with the outdoor furniture?
Lastly, you did not mention any repairs to me when we spoke on the phone? Please can you expand on this so I can deal with them?
Many thanks and best wishes,
I hate to nit-pick but some of the items in the kitchen and bathroom are YEARS out of date (tea/coffee/medicines) and the fridge was mouldy to say the least.
Also a guide to work the TV or switch to the PS2 for DVDs (we figured it out) would have been a great help.
Like I say, I hate to nit-pick because it's a beautiful home (we hated to leave) in a pleasant, friendly town with the sea, dining out and shops literally minutes or seconds away.
Thank you for writing a review - I invited feedback from you after your stay so thank you for taking the time to write it via Owners Direct.
In answer to your comments, I have not lived at the property myself since 2013 and I am sorry to hear that the coffee was out of date. As for the medicines, these are in a private cupboard and not for public consumption so I am unsure why you needed to use these? I will speak to my regular housekeeper and ask her to check and thrown anything that is out of date and I will certainly be speaking to her about the fridge. I ask each guest to leave a small balance of £2-3 on the electricity for the next guest and it is possible that the people before you did not and the fridge went off?
The details on how to switch the TV on and off are in the Housekeeping information I send guests, along with all other details about wifi, refuse, towels etc.
I always welcome feed back as I want the house to be as welcoming as possible and I would say to any guest, please do let me know during your stay if anything is not right, rather than waiting until afterwards to give feed back more publicly.
Great location, unreliable landlady
This house is excellent in terms of location, perfect for amenities in and around Seaford. Unfortunately it suffers from no local housekeeper and an unprofessional landlady, which is why -- although we liked the property -- we will not be staying here again. If you want personal service or an immediate response, this is not the place to rent. We experienced numerous problems (incorrect code to key box so we couldn't get in house, mail piled up on floor when we did get in, electricity deficit upon arrival although promised a credit, gas credit ran out while we were there -- for which she still owes us reimbursement). This was made more frustrating by not being able to easily reach the distant landlady by phone and having no local agent to act on her behalf. If it hadn't been for one neighbour and my coincidental history with the area, I don't if we would've ever got into the house in the first place. After a long journey, it was very disappointing. Too many loose ends, not professionally managed. Lesson learned.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I explained to you at the time that I was unfortunately taken into hospital before you arrived at the property and this is why I was unable to take any calls and this does not make me an unreliable landlady. This is the first time anyone has said anything like this. The gas has been refunded.
I take great pride in making my guests welcome and attending to all the details to make sure their stay is as enjoyable as possible and I do have a housekeeper and mail redirection in place. It is likely that there was junk mail received between the time the house was cleaned and your arrival.
In a case like this, I believe guests need to email landlords / landladies or contact Owners Direct if unable to reach them by phone as unforeseen circumstances can occur such as mine.
I would like to reassure anyone wishing to stay in my house that I do my utmost to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay and I wish this guest had contacted me directly during their stay to resolve any issues before writing this review.
