Parking is on street and there are restrictions in place which stop it from being a free-for-all. You simply pick up special parking permits from the owner on arrival, which cost just £1 per day (Sundays free) - nice and easy!
There are a few steps up to the front door (around 6-8), so wheelchair access not available. However once inside, there are only a couple of steps down into the open-plan living area - so this apartment is reasonably good for those with restricted mobility.
The South East England region
Officially the sunniest spot in the UK, Eastbourne was voted Britain’s number one holiday-friendly destination in a survey by Virgin Money Travel Insurance.
This award-winning seaside resort nestles at the foot of the South Downs and Beachy Head, with unbeatable walking and cycling to be enjoyed. Located just 25 miles from Brighton, and 17 miles from Hastings, Eastbourne attracts almost 5 million visitors each year.
Whether you fancy taking in a West End show or concert at Eastbourne’s fabulous bandstand, enjoying a stroll on the pier, roller skating along the promenade or even having a go at some water sports, Eastbourne can offer it all.
The charming town centre has a surprising number of excellent restaurants and a good selection of shops to while away a few hours – including a Museum of Shops. There is also the excellent contemporary Towner art gallery, plus four theatres, bars and clubs.
It’s also a family friendly resort – to keep the kids entertained, the Eastbourne Miniature Steam Railway, Treasure Island and Fort Fun offer plenty of entertainment, including rides, crazy golf and go-karting, and there are bags of further attractions to visit within the surrounding region.
Our lovely clean, pebble beach has been featured on TV as exceptionally family friendly. KidzSafe waterproof identification wristbands are supplied free of charge so that parents can tag children with their mobile phone numbers. The pier offers traditional seaside amusements and if you’re trying to drag them away, Fusciardi’s ice-creams are unsurpassed as bribery!
Eastbourne has something for everyone – whether you’re looking for a traditional seaside holiday or a culture break.

"Very good but with drawbacks"
This apartment is in an excellent position and easy walking distance for both the sea front & shops.For 4 adults staying the double bedroom is quite claustrophobic and in the bigger bedroom only one b… More
Thanks for finding time for the review and great to hear that you enjoyed the apartment and its fab location, very close to the beach, theatres and town centre.
The owner takes great pride in the quality, impeccable cleanliness and styling of the apartment and would always ensure that any issues such as blown light bulbs are dealt with immediately so I am sorry that you never mentioned it.
Had you mentioned the heavy-footed guests above you she would also have had a quiet word as she always does her utmost to provide an enjoyable experience for all.
Leather sofas can be a little polarising - whilst they look amazing and some enjoy the feel, I appreciate that they are not necessarily for everyone.
All linen is provided as well as nice little touches such as toiletries, fizz on arrival, chocolates and milk for a cuppa.
Apologies for the misunderstanding on the 'bath sheets' - the term refers to large bath towels rather than actually of a 'sheet' size and, of course, hand towels are also provided, plus bath mats. Bath robes are also provided which again reflects the overall quality of the apartment and the official 'Gold' standard it has achieved via the VisitEngland grading scheme.
I hope we see you again

"Nice and cosy home. You have to treat it like your own home."
This flat is in short walking distance to a beautiful beach. It is located near the city centre of an old and beautiful town. It can be used as a base to visit nearby beaches and towns. The flat is on the first floor of a Victorian-style town house. It is nice and clean so you have to treat it like your own home. £200 deposit is at the highest charge at any similar holiday booking. A few drops of none-removable stains on the carpet would lose your deposit. Therefore, you must be extremely careful, even more careful than you are at home.
Hi there and thanks for finding time to review Cavendish Apartment.
Great to hear that you loved the location, close to the beach and town centre and the period building in which it is set.
The interior is very light and contemporary and certainly feels like home so people are very respectful when they stay there.

"Lovely, luxury apartment;"
We booked for 3 nights and stayed for 4 it was so lovely. Very comfortable; beautifully laid out apartment, within minutes of the sea.
Owner very helpful.
Great little unexpected luxuries, like chocolates and fizz in fridge on arrival!
Definitely would book to stay here again
only comment was that the sofa was not very comfortable - as in not very wide front to back, and slippery (leather)!
Hello and thank you for the lovely words.
The owner makes great efforts to be helpful and is extremely thoughtful, providing a bottle of fizz and a welcome pack of goodies and will readily provide recommendations on local restaurants and sights.
The stylish and firm leather sofa might polarise opinion - most guests enjoy it whilst others prefer a slouchier feel. It can be tricky to hit a sweet spot for everyone, I guess.
Thanks again for your comments.

"She thought of everything"
Anyone that's traveled with little ones knows how trying it can be, so we were pleasantly surprised at how easy our stay was. Angela, the homeowner, thought of everything - from setting up a cozy cot for our daughter to having toys waiting for her when we arrived at Cavendish (she squealed when she saw them!).
She also had a binder complete with information we needed to know about the apartment & area highlights, which made our stay that much easier - no endless searches for restaurants or nearby attractions. Also the location can't be beat, just about 2 blocks from the seafront. Also, she included milk & juice in the fridge to get us started, as well as some other tasty goodies - very much appreciated after a long flight.
If I had a complaint it would be the uncomfortable sofa - but other than that, we loved our stay.
Thanks Cathy for taking the time for the review.
Angela has lots of experience of children and just what it takes to keep them happy so really makes an effort to ensure that your stay is all that it could be.
She'll be delighted to hear of your feedback.
Great to hear you enjoyed yourselves and that the location was spot on.

"Ideal location, apartment delightful"
Ideally located within a few minutes walk of excellent theatres, shopping centre, station and beach.Main draw back was on street parking which could be a problem in the summer months but a car really … More
Thanks for finding the time for a review.
Great to hear you enjoyed the apartment and its location - it takes some beating, doesn't it?!
The parking permits do work very well, including over the summer months, allowing you to park directly outside and also over quite a wide part of the town if you fancy looking around. All for just £1 per day.
Thanks again and hope to see you again soon.

"Lovely apartment minutes away from seafront"
We stay in Eastbourne often visiting friends. This is the most well appointed / decorated apartment we have stayed at so far. We paid the £1 a day for parking and got a space right outside the… More
Thank you for the review and heads up to future guests.
The owner takes great pride in the apartment so it's lovely to hear that all her efforts are appreciated!
We try to return security deposits as quickly as possible as we understand that it's a key part of our service - it's your money after all :)
We always try to be completely transparent when talking through every aspect of our holiday rentals and would never recommend certain properties if access is compromised.
Thanks again and see you again on your next trip to Eastbourne
