WHAT MAKES THE OCEAN HOUSE A GREAT HOLIDAY VENUE?

The Ocean House is a rare find in Biarritz...

  • Stunning ocean views & sunsets
  • Nearest restaurant 3min walk
  • 15min walk to vibrant market district
  • Two beaches 10min walk
  • Large, private garden
  • Quiet residential area with very little traffic
  • All 3 bedrooms have en-suite shower

BEST FOR:

  • A family with teenagers
  • Couples here for the food & waves. This is a great place to honeymoon or celebrate a special anniversary

SUITABILITY FOR:

  • Toddlers - cots & high chairs available for hire. Large garden to play. Spiral staircase requires care with little ones.
  • Teenagers - fantastic! Easy access to Biarritz's cafes, shops and beaches. Wifi.
  • Reduced mobility - spiral staircase to the bedrooms makes it unsuitable.

ANYTHING TO WATCH OUT FOR?

  • Spiral staircase requires care with young children / less mobile
  • It’s a steep walk back from Plage de Cote des Basques
  • There is a separate guest house in the grounds which is not occupied in summer
  • It’s not a luxury house; expect a comfortable 'beach' style

WHY BIARRITZ?

The most famous resort on the Atlantic coast with its brilliant surfing, shopping, golf, food and culture too. This wonderful 'seaside city' is one of Europe's finest holiday destinations with something for everyone. 

Accommodation

3 bedroom holiday house in a privileged position in Biarritz with outstanding 180 degree ocean views

3 bedrooms | 3 shower rooms | 160m2 

The Ocean House is the ideal choice for when a pool isn't top of your list. In fact, a private pool is easily sacrificed when you can enjoy unbroken ocean views, walk to the beach and stroll to shops and restaurants.

The accommodation is attractive and modest rather than luxurious. Natural light floods the house all day and there are plenty of places inside and outside to make the most of those stunning views.

Ground Floor:

Entrance hallway with guest WC.

From the hallway, glass doors lead directly into the west-facing open-plan living area. The room is filled with natural light and is divided into: lounge; dining area; kitchen.

The lounge has a simple 'beach-y' ambience. A TV is here should you at any point find yourself indoors in front of the screen! The adjacent dining table is for 6 people.

The new kitchen is in a fresh white colour in keeping with the bright ambience of the house. It's well-equipped with the added touch of a breakfast bar and (three) bar stools. Just off the kitchen is a separate and very handy utility space.

Accessed from the living room is the conservatory-style sun room. With it's south- and west-facing dual aspect, it will get pretty warm in here most days but it's a good spot for late evenings.

Note there is a spiral open-tread staircase to the first floor bedrooms - not so good for little ones or the less mobile.

First Floor:

Bedroom 1: 2 x single beds that can be joined to make a double; shower room (shower & double hand-basins); shared balcony with ocean views plus small table & two chairs.

Bedroom 2: 160cm bed, shower room (shower & hand-basin); directly facing the ocean; balcony shared with Bedroom 1. 

Bedroom 3: 160cm bed with partial sea view to the south and en-suite shower room (shower & hand-basin).

Separate WC.

Outside:

The Ocean House enjoys a very generous plot for such a central location. There is ample garden space whilst the palm trees add to the ocean vibe and give an extra bit of seclusion and privacy too.

  • Outdoor dining table & chairs
  • Rattan outdoor furniture
  • Plancha for grilling meats & seafood fresh from the market
  • Parking space for one car - bear in mind this is a perfect car-free venue

Note: there is a separate guest cottage in the grounds which is not occupied when The Ocean House is rented.

Location

The Ocean House enjoys a privileged location 'en premiere ligne' - directly facing the Atlantic Ocean whose mood and colour can change from one day to the next.

Situated in a quiet side street in the Beaurivage district of Biarritz Old Town, The Ocean House is secluded and private with beaches, shops and restaurants all close by. This is an eviable place to spend a holiday in one of France's most adored resorts.
