The Haven Beach House
Chalet | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The Haven is just a little piece of Heaven where life stands still, set in a stunning location with its own beach to the front and Titchfield National Nature reserve to the rear. This idyllic position is situated on private land with a padlocked gate to public vehicle access and away from the main beach road, so the only sound is the waves and calling of wild birds.
The chalet has been refurbished in 2012 to a very high standard and is cosy yet contemporary in design, with eco friendly solar powered electricity. The chalet situated on the beach has a panoramic sea view of the Solent overlooking the Isle of Wight. By day watching the Solent with an ever changing view of yachts, dingies, windsurfers and kitesurfers and by night the sunsets are stunning either inside by the wood burner or outside on the terrace/beach. The romantic views watching sunrise and sunset are out of this world. Titchfield National Nature Reserve to the rear is also perfect for twitchers, nature lovers, artists, photographers, cyclists and walkers. A short walk along the cliff path brings you to the Hamble river and marinas.

"Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!!"
Our holiday at the beach house was a very relaxing week. Situated right on the beach we sat in our deck chairs taking in the fabulous setting, and enjoyed watching the water-sports. We are keen windsurfers and kayakers so it was lovely to be able to simply walk out of the door and onto the beach. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable with a bright open feel. Although the weather was mixed it was equally nice watching the waves in the warmth and comfort, however when the sun came out it was heaven. We also loved the small harbour and enjoyed the friendly atmosphere of the Haven Cafe and the Osbourne View pub, nice to walk to in the evenings. Hopefully this was the first of many stays there, especially as the owners were friendly and helpful.

"What a fantastic spot"
The house exceeded all of our expectations, we could not stop looking out at the views, both day and night. We were a little bit concerned about not being connected to mains electricity but again, this was not a problem. The log burner was great, we collected drift wood off the beach and had very cosy evenings in front of it. It looked like it has just been refurbished, all of the decoration, furniture and fittings looked new and it was very clean.
We did a fair amount of walking, we can recommed the Osborne View Pub in Hill Head, about a 15 minute walk away to the east for excellent food. Walking west along the cliff tops gave stunning views across the solent. We did walk all the way to Warsash and got a taxi back.

"Wow, what a stunning view!"
Wow, what a stunning view! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay; the beach outside, good walks and a lovely tea room nearby, overlooking the small harbour. The Haven Beach House was very clean and comfortable, and the TV being wall mounted was ideal for the children, as out of harm's way.
The proprietors couldn't have been more helpful and had done a great job to make our stay a pleasant experience.
We very much hope to return next year.

"So glad they gave me my money back!"
Terrible rental, grimy with nasty brown polyester shiny sheets, no towels, grubby beds and absolutely no amenities. Be warned this property does not have mains electricity so power is at a premium hence no appliances. No kettle, toaster, coffee maker a TV so small you need binoculars. The owners to their credit, returned my money when I saw how awful the property was and could not stay there. Thankfully I found a nice B and B.
I walked the beach last week to see if they had made any upgrades per my suggestions and they had not so that is why they are getting a bad review, I felt if a family saved all year for a holiday and ended up here they should be pre warned.
Newly refurbished and painted white throughout we have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming people to our holiday home. A few hours each visit is spent cleaning, washing & ironing new clean white sheets & preparing for new holiday guests. We have very much enjoyed their wonderful comments & feedback with many promising to return next year. A courtesy text is often made just to make sure all is well.
It is stated in the advert that the chalet is operated by a brand new state of the art solar system, however no client has ever run out of electricity or noticed this to be any different to being supplied by cable & there is a kettle & a grill.
On first contact with this guest after she initially disturbed the neighbours and then with her list of unreasonable demands, we quickly felt a full refund was the best option for both parties. However this was obviously not satisfactory as we have had a rude e-mail listing endless changes to make. If when booking; a busy street, large TV screen & coffee maker are priority over a tranquil setting, a stunning sea view and retreat from the bustle of everyday life then this property is not for you.

We stayed at the beach haven with our 3, 5 and 8 year old children and had a fantastic time, there was plenty for the children to keep them amused with crabbing, fossil hunting along the beach and swi… More
So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thank you so much for the beautiful 'thank you' plate the children made for us; it was very kind of them. So sorry to hear the mattress on the sofa bed was not very comfortable, but thank you for letting us know – we have now added a mattress topper. We are delighted to hear that you are hoping to come again next year.
