“A nice flat in a lovely spot”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This is a really delightful small flat in a lovely place. The flat is located on the edge of Rye but is convenient for a walk into the town itself and has a beautiful view onto a tidal river with picturesque marsh land spreading out into the distance. (With, bizarrely, an ostrich farm visible in the middle distance.)
The flat is quite small but beautifully presented and was in immaculate condition when we arrived. There were some really nice touches such as a bottle of wine etc and it was very easy to cook in. The side of the flat facing over the river has a big french window with a tiny balcony and the flat is very light and pleasant to sit in.
Rye itself is beautiful and a lovely place to hang out, from the castle to the church to the numerous pleasant shops and pubs, and places like Camber Sands and Hastings are very accessible via public transport.
Only two very small gripes stopped it from being a five-star experience: one was that the hot water in the bath was very erratic and if you're one of these old fashioned people who prefers a bath to a shower you might find it frustrating, and the second was that the front aspect of the flat itself is rather gloomy and ugly. But these are very easily overlooked. We went with a toddler and were slightly nervous about the window and the balcony as there was a sheer drop down a story onto a stony ledge next to the river, but it was relatively easy to secure.
Also the owner was extremely friendly and helpful which went a long way.

This apartment was in a lovely location, well appointed, clean and provided with all thats needed for a comfortable stay, we were there for a week and enjoyed it immensley. Rye itself is a interesting place to explore full of history with plenty of cafes,restaurants in close proximity. Within easy striking distance are historic towns such as Battle, Hastings and Tunbridge Wells just to name a few.Be aware however that this apartment is at first floor level accessed via a wooden outdoor stairway which could be a problem for those with mobility difficulties particularly with suitcases.

“A relaxing short break”
Reviewed March 6, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

We stayed at 16 The boathouse for 3 nights from 2 March to 6 March. The location of the apartment is perfect, a very short walk from the town centre. Parking is very easy with allocated space. The apartment itself is very clean and well equipped with both bath and overhead shower. The bed is very comfy and towels fluffy. My husband and I were very happy with our choice as we thought it might be too noisy if we stay in other accommodation in the heart of town as they are over pubs and restaurants. The apartment was well situated but very quiet. We contacted the owner Geoff 2 nights before our holiday and the arrangement he made for key collection was perfect. On our last day, we moved our car to a space allocated for visitors so we can still use the car park after we vacated the apartment and this help us to squeeze in a few more hours in Rye without worrying about parking. We will definitely go back to Rye as it is not far from home and will try to book this apartment again.

Geoff has also recommended a few restaurants and we tried the Ship Inn one night, They do lovely seafood as well as other meat. A three course meal without wine cost us just under £30 each. We also went to the famous Webbe's - the Fish Cafe and had lunch there. Again, 3 courses without wine cost around £30 per head. There are other cheaper options but as we did some cooking some nights, we decided to go to try these 2 eating places and we weren't disappointed. Webbe's also has cookery courses and I am definitely going back with my friend for a one day cookery course - another excuse to return to Rye!

“A Paradise in Rye!”
Reviewed July 29, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We were fortunate enough to stay in this lovely apartment last week, and were extremely sorry to leave! It was comfortable and spotless, and the owner made himself known during the week to see if everything was going ok. The views over the river estuary and changing tides were fascinating, including the antics of ostriches on the other side of the river(I haven't been drinking, honest!)
Would recommend to anyone who asked me for somewhere to stay in Rye. Quiet and peaceful but only ten minutes stroll into the middle of town.
