“Very comfortable”
Reviewed July 6, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The house was clean and comfortable and good value for money. We used it as a base to explore East Sussex from Camber to Eastbourne along the coast and inland to Bodiam and Battle. We particularly had a lovely trip along the River Rother from Bodiam Castle including an excellent lunch at the boat station cafe. The weather was a little inclement at times but did not impact on out enjoyment of our week at the Castaway.

“Fun, clean, perfectly located ”

We arrived to a clean well stocked house ready with everything we needed during the 3 day stay. Our 2 year old loved the walk to the beach and sea, and the baby chair and travelcot provided meant that our car was not overflowing! He loved playing in the small shingle back garden with the spades and buckets also provided.

“Clean and well presented but no WOW factor”
Reviewed June 7, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The property was clean and comfortable and decorated to a high standard. The beach is a 7-10min walk away. 3mins in the car but you are charged for using the car park. The one thing that the property desperately needs is a serving hatch between the kitchen and lounge to prevent being isolated in the kitchen when cooking etc. The rear garden is functional for sitting out but is an enclosed, easy maintenance, practical space with no frills or view to speak of. However the properties limitations and location were reflected in the price we paid.

“Disapointing”
Reviewed May 26, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Nice little cottage, fantastic location, clean. However, instructions explained that the shower screen was complicated to use. So we didn't use it. We also noticed there was a stain on the kitchen ceiling when we arrived which we noticed while putting things away in the fridge - and after departure, we were accused of creating the stain by flooding the bathroom. We were then charged £75 by the agent despite explaining it was there on arrival and the fact that we never even used the shower, only the bath. It would seem there is no way of getting our money back. I think this is shocking and would advise people to be careful if renting this porpery.

“Memories made”
Reviewed May 6, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Lovely cozy but spacious house perfect for myself and two children. Felt like home. Boys had a great time playing in the sand dunes and on the beach and was fantastic to be able to walk to them. Looking forward to returning.

Welcome bottle of wine, long life milk, tea and coffee was a surprise. Accommodation spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished.
We had a lovely time and hope to go again.
