About this listing

Bright, stylish room in self-built, modernist two-bed sustainable home, with comfy double bed, pure cotton/linen bedding, ensuite shower room, TV, wifi. On a quiet road a few minutes' walk from the beach, independent shops, bars and restaurants in St Leonards on Sea, with off road parking.

The space

The room is a double, and while it's not massive, it's got everything you need for a comfortable stay: a new, quality mattress, pure cotton/linen sheets, your own shower room, fluffy towels and a TV. It faces the front of the property, on a very quiet road.

If you don't want to go out for breakfast, help yourself to cereal, juice, tea and coffee.

I built this two-bed single story home to be sustainable (code 5); it is well insulated, with a sedum roof, concrete floors and an air source heat pump to provide underfloor heating and hot water. There is a ventilation system installed to provide a constant supply of fresh, filtered air.

My labour of love is filled with recycled materials and furniture to create an unpretentious, comfortable home - I welcome you to come and stay.

Guest access

As well as your own room and ensuite, you are welcome to use the kitchen during your stay. The house has a video/keypad entry system so you can come and go as you please.

I haven't landscaped the back garden yet - it's next on the list! But there is a small front garden if you want to smoke/listen to the birds. The house is only two minutes' walk from the seafront and Warrior Square.

Interaction with guests

I live in the house with my very friendly staffy, Sydney, and will usually be on hand (but not in your hair) during your stay to give you any information or recommendations you need. If I'm not going to be available, I'll ensure you have this information before you arrive.

Other things to note

No smoking indoors.

My dog, Sydney, is very much part of this home - she'll insist on cuddling you so please bear this in mind ;)

Kia met us on arrival and made us feel very welcome. Her home is beautiful; very contemporary with an industrial theme throughout. Our room was as described and was absolutely perfect for us. The location is great with Hastings Old Town about a 20 minute stroll along the seafront. The private, off street parking is a real bonus. Our stay here couldn't have been any better!

Kia has a beautiful modern, light and airy home and in a great location. She sometimes rents it out as whole home, sometimes just a bedroom (shared with her and her very friendly dog). Worth double checking before arrival.

It was lovely to stay in Kia'S home. Sydney the dog is also very friendly and doesn't bark. The bed was very comparable . We didn't see her very much as we were out most of our stay but she communicated everything upfront :)

Kia's place is very nicely designed. The ensuite room is quite independent from the rest of the house. Kia was very helpful and welcoming. I definitely recommend staying at her place!

I'm a freelance writer and love travelling and meeting people. I live with my super friendly 11-year old staff, Sydney. I enjoy random acts of kindness, films, reading, dancing, and we both love walks on the beach, eating out (or just eating in general, for Sydney).
