    Everything was what I needed peace and quiet and close to friend I was visiting. Wouldn't hesitate to visit again thank you

  • "We very much enjoyed our holiday, the only drawback was the lack of storage space and work surface, cant see how this can be improved due to layout of building."

    Would definitely go back again. Sue and Ian were wonderful hosts

    Thank you for your comments. Look forward to seeing you again. Property Owner

    Sue and Ian are always most friendly and are only too pleased to help in any way. The welcome pack is also most welcome especially the homemade cake.

    Lovely to see you again and we are looking forward to your 5th visit. Ian and Sue Property Owner

  • "The owners are lovely helpful people and i have never ever stayed at any property which was as pristine clean as karibu."

    Lots of extras available (shower gel, sugar, tea, milk, cake etc etc etc) which is very useful to have at the start or end of your stay, before and after packing. Only small thing I would like to make clear is that parking is on the road near the property, although the owners were very helpful saying that I could park in the drive to pack up the car upon leaving. A delightful stay and I could not recommend it more highly.

  • "Ian and Sue where the perfect guest givers, always willing to help and giving good tips on anything you needed or wanted to know."

    The Karibu was very clean and tidy and had all accessories needed to have a comfortable stay. Sue's homemade cookies are the Hammer. We also had a few visits from Sue's cat Milly(a little gem). The outside area is tidy and it's great to come back to after a day out and just sit and relax(and grill if you wish). Ian does a lot with helping children with woodworking (cutting the pieces privately in his garage) a high respect for this, and also keeping the outside area at home in shape and still had time for a conversation. On arrival there was Sekt in the fridge as a welcome (tops) and of course the homemade Cookies. The only thing which wasn't optimal (not Sue's or Ian's fault) was that the bed isn't really wide enough for two people if they are a bit larger in size, apart from this absolutely nothing to complain about well not really a complain more or less a suggestion for the future when the bed has to be replaced. Myself and my Wife would definitely suggest the Karibu. All the very best to Ian & Sue. From Alan and Karola.

    Lovely extra touches on arrival of fresh milk, lemon cake and Prosecco. Will definitely love to return when next visiting the area.

  • "The property was very comfortable and in very good order."

    There was easy and safe parking just along the road. It proved to be a very convenient base for us. It was just a short distance to the South Downs on foot and there are lots of places of interest nearby. The annexe contained everything we needed. Had the weather been just a bit warmer we could have taken advantage of the quiet and secluded outdoor space. It was ideal for the two of us.

    You cannot fault the facility in anyway. Plus a great new feature is a Micro Pub within walking distance which is great as you do need a car for anything else other than walking over the South Downs.

  • "Our stay at this cute place was lovely."

    Ian and Sue are sweet and helpful if need more information for visiting the area. They even left the cake and milk in the fridge for us, unfortunately we are vegans so we didn't touch it. Easy access to other places in Sussex and the navigation isn't complicated. The only thing I'd like to recommend will be in the yard could have a sensor light at the entrance when come back late. Couldn't see any thing other than that its great. Would recommend this place for sure. Thanks for adding the extra points for our holiday experience.

    Thank you all for your kind comments about Karibu they are most appreciated. Regards Sue and Ian. As for the outside lighting, it does have a daylight sensor but we must make the instructions for its use more user friendly especially as the Autumn is upon us. Thanks for pointing the issue out.

    Wanted for nothing in terms of facilities. Out of town if you are looking for seafront activity but in terms of value for money, even with a couple of taxi fares, it was well worth it.

    There was everything we needed for our stay, and had the weather been warmer, a very pleasant courtyard with table and chairs. Sue and Ian were very welcoming hosts and attentive to our every need. The arrival gifts of Prosecco and goodies to eat were very welcome. Karibu is found down a quiet close, with easy parking nearby and close to walks on the downs and lots of places to visit nearby along the south coast.

    The rooms were very clean and tidy and the owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and we were delighted with the arrival pack - especially the cake and prosecco. The property is well located to visit local sites and the route in and out is easy to navigate with plenty of parking. The outside facilities would be excellent in summer. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would strongly recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit the area.

    Could not ask for better hosts. The little gifts they left in the room were much appreciated. Nothing was too much bother, everything you ever needed was provided in the room. We had a brilliant nights sleep, the bed was very comfortable. It was lovely having a full size fridge, & real milk provided for us, not the small individual UHT milk you get in the large hotel chains. Would certainly go back.

The property

Nestled at the foot of the South Downs National Park in High Salvington, West Sussex is Karibu, a charming studio-style annex.

Perfect for a romantic retreat, this delightful dwelling offers a lovely garden and on road parking while being within easy reach of local amenities, Worthing town, and the lively city of Brighton.

As you step into the property, you will find a kitchen area, fit with all the necessities for your self catering requirements such as an electric hob and a fridge, along with an all-important kettle for your morning cup of tea.

From here, snuggle up with your other half on the sofa and watch the TV after a long day of discovering the local area.

As the evening draws to a close, head off to the plush double bed for some well-deserved rest ahead of another adventurous day out.

The light and airy décor brings lots of natural light into the space and is finished nicely with stylish neutral furniture.

Guests will also benefit from a bathroom with a bath, shower over, basin and WC, where you can choose to freshen up between activities or soak in a bubble bath while indulging in a good book.

Outside, there is a charming courtyard, delicately decorated with pots of greenery and dining seating where you can savour a glass of wine with your loved one in the last of summer sun.

Treat yourself you to a meal out while during your stay at one of the local eateries such as Anaz Indian Restaurant or for classic pub grub, venture into the nearby Findon to the Black Horse Inn.

Plenty more pubs, restaurants and cafés can be found in the town of Worthing, where you can also pick up traditional fish and chips to enjoy at Worthing Pier.

Venture out to Brighton for the day; this lively city is home to an abundance of attractions to keep you busy throughout your stay.

Upside Down House is a fascinating museum of optical illusions based on the colourful seafront of Brighton.

Spend a day discovering the South Downs National Park; Cissbury Ring is a reasonable walk from the doorstep of the property and is known for being the most historic hill on the South Downs.

Get a taste for the countryside by visiting Coombes farm, a working farm open to the public for lambing season, tractor rides and fishing in their lake known as, Passies Pond.

There are also plenty of beaches in the area, explore the coast or set up camp for the day and soak up some rays before heading back to cosy up in your home away from home.

For an exciting escape to West Sussex, choose Karibu as your base.
