Zanzibar Beach House

What to Expect

The interior of this beach house is jaw-droppingly splendid with its three themed bedrooms, two with views across the sea to France. Formerly the ground and first floor of an award-winning boutique hotel, it is clear that talented interior designers have left their stamp in this 3,229sq ft beach house in a delightful Sussex seaside town.

Part of the borough of Hastings, St Leonards, is only a 15-minute walk to this historic location. In Hastings’ Old Town, there are up-market boutiques and international cuisine restaurants and cafés.

This exceptional beach house is a perfect treat for special occasions with its bar, bespoke kitchen and stylish open plan living area.

Things To Do in St Leonards-on-Sea

Chances are you are going to have to be persuaded to leave the luxury of this unique beach house, but when you do, you will fall in love with St Leonards-on-Sea’s quaint vintage feel and its pristine shingle beach that you can see from two of the home’s bedrooms.
You’ll wake up to the sound of the waves in either the dazzling white Antarctica suite with its chaise lounge or the South American suite with a sea-facing balcony and an integrated square tub and shower overhead. The Zen Japanese room with an in-situ free-standing spa bath on the second floor is as tranquil as it gets.

Hastings’ Old Town quarter is a 15-minute walk from the house where you will find exclusive boutiques and independent shops where you can stock up on local produce. You will be in high pamper mode, so a browse around Butler’s Emporium is a must. It has a range of holistic home spa kits as well and comestibles such as Linden honey and chocolates.
The Clockwork Crow on George Street has everything from colourful cushions to candles, baskets and houseplants. On the same street is the timbered framed Ye Olde Pump House. It serves Shepherd Neame bitters such as the original Kentish ale, Master Brew.

St Leonard’s-based Vine and Country provides specialised tours of the Kent and East Sussex countryside, visiting vineyards and farms that showcase the best of the region’s provenance. From English Sparkling Wine to Craft Cider and Beer experiences.
The tours include wine tastings, chef-prepared full lunches, pairings, aperitifs and platters. Starting at £140 per person, it is something that will undoubtedly complete your swanky stay.

Last Word

This part of the country is a gem in East Sussex’s crown. It has everything from stunning meadows to miles of coast. The great thing about Hastings is that you can leave the Old Town and be in the countryside within minutes. The Hasting Country Park is in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has 660 acres of ancient woodland, coastal cliffs and heathland. If you have a four-legged family member in tow, then this is a great place to do a series of scenic walks.

Zanzibar Beach House is in a league of its own thanks to it once being the large part of a swish boutique hotel. All that had to happen was to change the downstairs living space to make it a high-end home-from-home. It now has a bespoke kitchen with a six-point induction hob and double oven, a station specifically for laptops and an outdoor space that is as sparkly as the interior.

If you are looking for a quality break that is luxurious with a capital L, especially if it is to celebrate a special occasion, then look no further because the splendour of this beach house beckons.
