Interaction with guests
Exclusively Eastbourne was set up by husband and wife, Carl & Sarah Stanger, after they recognised the need for high quality self catering accommodation on Eastbourne. Both Carl and Sarah have travelled extensively, lived abroad and enjoyed (and occasionally endured) a wide spectrum of holiday and business accommodation and this experience has shaped their understanding of what makes a great holiday home. Their ethos is simple - to listen to and understand what guests require and provide only the best holiday homes. If there is something that would help to make your stay extra special, just ask. Maybe you are organising the holiday as a birthday treat and you need help with the cake or decorations. Perhaps it is a romantic getaway and

Lovely cottage with superb views, fantastic hosts, great garden and swimming pool and, for once, heated really means heated - warm enough for 80 year old mum and 83 year old uncle to get in and have a swim! The owners (and dog Dylan) were...More

What fabulous feedback! Great to hear that you all enjoyed yourselves at Friston Cottage. I think it takes some beating with the heated outdoor pool, the views across the Downs towards the sea and the most wonderful hosts. I hope it helps convince others to...More
