About St Catherine's


St Catherine's is a unique designer beach house with endless wow factor. Modern glass features heavily in this luxury, ultra-contemporary West Sussex holiday home, allowing light to flood into all areas of the VIP property.

Stay at St Catherine's and let the seaside be an extension of your garden. You have your own private gate opening on to the pebbly and sandy beach. What's more, adjacent to the house is a trendy beach cafe serving coffees and lunches - now that's handy.

Back at the house, relax in your own private hot tub or watch the ever-changing light over the sea from the first floor terrace. Open the bi-fold doors from the living room and admire the views to the garden and to the sea. Passing yachts and ships, the Isle of Wight and Nab Tower will be in view. Contemporary decking and outdoor dining spaces set a wonderful al fresco scene. Sun-drenched breakfasts and sunset aperitifs can be enjoyed in different spots, including a super-cool sunken seating area to gather in.

Indoors, the high spec kitchen makes entertaining a breeze - its quality fittings by Gaggenau include both steam and conventional ovens, proving drawers, a double fridge and a nespresso machine. The 4 bedrooms upstairs have 3 bathrooms between them, including the luxury master en-suite that features an in-wall TV and rainfall shower.

"A fantastic house with an astounding view. The sound of the ocean waves, waking us up in the morning was relaxing and soothing. The facilities were great, and utensils were useful. Netflix was a bonus when figured out how to use! Thank you once again for allowing us to stay in your house and apologies once again for the accident that occurred. God bless you!"

We particularly enjoy the generous living space and ability to pop onto the beach at any time. Thank you. We are already looking forward to next year and making more memories. A few snags - downstairs toilet door doesn't lock. Left side of toaster not working. Could do with a large non stick frying pan. The cleaners were very helpful."

The Buthers / Wilsons - Aug 2018
