“Idyllic seaside staycation”
Reviewed May 16, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

person found this review helpful

We recently stayed at Marta's beautiful #Coastguard Cottage near #Camber for a family weekend away by the #seaside - 2 adults and 2 children, 2 nights, 2 days. Waking up in the morning to stunning #sunny views of the East Sussex coast line was just one of the many perks this #remote hidden gem has to offer along with the beautiful, #nautical, seaside #interiors, long walks on the vast stretches of #wild #beach (which is literally a few steps away from the back garden) and #Rye for your grocery shopping (excellent farm store and fishmongers!) Some friends who live nearby came over for a bbq and they were stunned by the beauty of this #idyllic location. You get the best of both worlds - walk up to Camber Sands beach for the crowds and sandy dunes or stay put for some quiet, relaxing time and have the #wild beach to yourself, especially when the tide is out. The children had an absolute blast and didn't want to go home come Sunday night! A definite revisit is in the pipeline!

“Beautiful house, bleak countryside”
Reviewed April 19, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We spent 2 days/1 night in Marta's beautiful house (4 adults and 3 toddlers). The decoration is gorgeous, and she has really thought of everything to make it a truly comfortable stay. Great beds, kitchen kit, and even lots of toys for the kids. I would say that the communal spaces (kitchen, dining room, sitting room) are only suitable for 4-5 people, I would find it tight for more. Although the beach is right on the doorstep, the immediate surrounds are pretty bleak - MOD land and firing ranges, diggers and construction stuff spoiling the view out of the back. But a 5min drive down the road and you're on vast Camber sands beach.

Management Response
May 5, 2016
Yes, the house is virtually on the beach and we sit in the middle between Dungeness and Camber Sands so there is 8 miles of beach to walk on. The surrounding area is not built up as we are in the quiet area outside of busy Camber Sands adjacent the MOD area of outstanding natural beauty and nature reserve. The landscape is calm, empty and peaceful.
Recently, the environmental agency created a flood brake to prevent the area from flooding due to rising sea levels and some of their equipment awaits removal.

“Perfect Coastal Retreat”
Reviewed March 7, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We spent the weekend at the Coast Guards Cottage and it was the perfect house for our getaway. The location is great, right next to the beach and with views to Dungeness, and the house is stunning and so comfortable. We were 6 friends and a dog and everyone had a wonderful relaxing time. We managed to have lunch outside in the sunshine, in the pretty front garden, and spent our days walking on the beach and in Rye. Evenings were spent in front of the fire eating and drinking. The whole party agreed that we couldn't have asked for a better weekend break. Thank you Marta for letting us say in your beautiful house.

“A great place for a getaway”
Reviewed November 14, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The cottage is really lovely, and easily fit our group of nine. Its situation is perfect, isolated but a short drive to Rye. During our stay, there were works on the beach so that we could not access it, but the owner offered a great deal as compensation.
Overall, the owner was helpful, responded quickly to our requests, and we all loved the place!
