It was totally restored to it's former glory by its present owners in 2009. Built into South Cliff a few feet above the sands, it is the towns most unusual heritage home and possibly the only detached house on this famous seafront.
The house has been completely refurbished and modernised from top to bottom, whilst retaining the many period features. On the first floor of the house entrance level, there is a beautiful lounge with sea views, a large dining/kitchen area which comprises of a combined washer/dryer, dishwasher and a stainless steel range style oven. Also on this level is the master bedroom which has an impressive en-suite with a roll top bath, and an additional double bedroom and a completely tiled wet room.
On the ground floor there are a further three double bedrooms, all with en-suites. The layout makes the most of the uninterrupted majestic panoramic sea views, especially from the balcony that runs along two sides of the building.

"Perfect for a family get away"
This is the second year we have stayed at the Spa Chalet and I can't recommend it highly enough, the building itself is beautiful and very well positioned for whatever kind of break you want and the views are just spectacular.
All of the bedrooms are well presented with nice clean linen and the kitchen is fully stocked, I don't remember once finding there was anything that we needed that wasn't already there, the hourse is more than big enough to not feel like you are under each others feet but still feels cosy. We had 1 child with us during our stay who was 3 at the time of first staying and found no issues with her around the house, we also took 2 dogs with us and although there is no garden there is grass on the side of the house which was very handy for letting them have the last stretch of their legs on a night but they were tired out from all the running on the beach which has a dog friendly section right off the road in front of the Chalet.
We have had a great break each time we have been and have decided to make it an annual trip as we never seem to fit everything into our holiday!
Thank you for your lovely review of Spa Chalet and we are pleased that you have enjoyed your last few visits there. We hope to see you again in the future for your annual UK holiday!
All the best

We had a wonderful week in this house. Location perfect we did not use the cars all week. The house has been beautifully restored and attention to detail means that everything you need is there. It is very clean and with four of five bedrooms having ensuite there is no problem with showers etc. We also took our two dogs who had a great time on the beach ( very close to the house dogs are allowed).
Would highly recommend but please don't get too booked up as we will definitely return.
Thank you for your kind words

"What a stunning holiday home"
This is a unique house in a wonderful location. No near neighbours but only a stone's throw from the town and beach. A lot of thought has obviously gone into the internal layout, which worked beautifully for our family of 8 - plenty of space for us to all be together, and plenty of our own space if we wanted it. Spectacular views, not only from the open plan kitchen/dining room, but also from 3 of the 5 bedrooms. The service we recieved from booking onwards was excellent, extremely efficient and considerate, and we cannot wait to go back there!
Thank you for kind words and we do look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Paul
