“Location was the best thing about it”
Reviewed August 7, 2015 for a stay in July 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed here for a week with a group of 7 of us (5 adults and 2 children) and unfortunately would not stay here again. The location was excellent but that was the best thing about it for us. My 2 children loved the bunk beds but unfortunately the rest of us found the beds uncomfortable and the twin beds in the fourth bedroom were not full size - fine if children are in them but not for adults. There was also no storage for clothes in the twin bedroom, other than a couple of shelves.
When we arrived on the Saturday the bin was already full so we could not put any rubbish out and it ended up with maggots in there. The property managing company were useless and didn't answer their phones or respond to text messages so we had to contact the booking agent who had to bring us a spare bin to use until the other one got emptied (which didn't happen until the Thursday!) . Based on comments in the guest book, it seems we weren't the only ones to have that problem.
It also needs a good clean. After walking around barefoot on the carpets (you are asked not to wear outdoor shoes on the carpet) our feet were filthy.

Thank you for the review. We are sorry about the issues you had with the cleaning/management company and your comments have been forwarded to the owners as such. We did come over as soon as you contacted us about the bin to bring you another so that you had somewhere to put your rubbish. I do feel that your comments on the property are harsh as it is the first time there has been negative feedback on the property and that perhaps they are a reflection of your experience of the cleaning/management company rather than the house itself.

“Lovely, well equipped, spotless and well located house”
Reviewed July 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a great time at the White House. We were 2 families (7 of us in total) and found there was plenty of room. The house is very well equipped and maintained and spotlessly clean. Beds are comfy, showers work well. There are lots of DVDs, games etc. It's in a great location. Easy to walk to the beach (over a huge sand dune - perhaps not ideal for the elderly...) or you can load a car with stuff for the beach and park in the car park, a minute down the road and walk straight onto the beach.

There's lots to see and do nearby, such a pretty area, especially if the sun is shining! We didn't have the best weather when we were there but it didn't matter. The beach is wonderful anyway and our children threw themselves into the water despite high winds and drizzle!

Thank you for the review of your stay with us. The owners wanted to make sure that when the sun wasn't shining that guests had plenty of entertainment indoors too, so will be pleased with your feedback! See you all again very soon. Richard, Sophie, Arthur & Oscar

“The White House Camber Sands perfect place to stay with family and friends”
Reviewed February 23, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This three storey house was the perfect place to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday with our children, friends and our God children who are 6 and 8. The house itself was very well equipped and clean and the welcome pack of fresh bread, butter milk and local biscuits were a lovely bonus. The house is only a very short walk from the beach with its sand dunes which the kids enjoyed immensely. A great weekend had by all.

“Beautiful, well equipped, clean house to spend time in.”
Reviewed January 18, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This was the first time that I had booked a cottage and was a little nervous as I was booking it on behalf of my family. Well I should not have worried as my first experience was faultless. The cottage was beautiful, had everything and more that we needed. The beach was so close, and what a beach. The kids had a fantastic time sliding down the huge sand hills, then a short drive took us to the lovely Rye for dinner. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone, my only fault was I wasn't there long enough.
