“Amazing time in an amazing house”
Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in June 2018

Just wanted to say a massive thanks to Karl & Louise for the amazing time me and my friends had at Beach Sun Retreat. It was my 30th birthday and me and 6 friends stayed for the weekend. The house is simply amazing, every little detail was perfect. The bed was soooo comfy and the sun room was used to full capacity even though we had amazing weather, we used it late at night! The kitchen was fully equipped to cook for 7 people which we did a lot of. We did eat lunch one day at the Ship Inn which was delicious and the staff were so so lovely - highly recommended ! Karl showed us round the house when we arrived and had even left us some lovely organic welcome treats. I had also arranged to hire a hot tub for the weekend and Karl & Louise were super accommodating with this. Thanks so much from 7 happy (& hungover) friends. I hope to be back soon!

We recently visited the Beach retreat for a friends birthday weekend... with children. The layout and space was fantastic and, with a large catering style kitchen, it lent itself perfectly to cooking for parties/groups. The bedrooms were comfortable and both with ensuite, waterfall showers and jacuzzi bath, which was a bonus! Extra single rooms would be ideal for older children. The garden was perfectly positioned to capture the summer sun all afternoon and into the evening whilst the proximity to the beach was fantastic! Dungeness is just a 20min drive from the house along a coastal road and well worth a visit. You can also get there via the Dymchurch steam train for an authentic experience. We will be back....

Thanks so much Amy for those kind words. We’re so pleased you and your friends had a great time. As it happens we are adding more bedrooms so next time you come we’ll be in a much better position to cater for a larger group.
Thanks again for staying.

Sunny regards

“Unique, luxury accommodation.”
Reviewed July 23, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Our stay at the Beach Sun Retreat definitely lived up to our expectations, from the photos and info on the website.

The house itself is very spacious and immaculately presented. This was perfect for our break, which was a family celebration for a 30th birthday. There was a welcome hamper on arrival which was a nice touch and we were met by Kerry who took the time to show us round all the rooms and explain how to use the equipment in the sun room. For us, the sun room was definitely the highlight of the house, it was so relaxing and the DJ equipment and special lighting really added to the experience.

The cinema room was small but authentic. However, it may have been nice to have a TV elsewhere in the house where you can relax on more comfortable seating.

The bedrooms are attractively decorated with very comfortable beds. We would, however, have preferred a door between the bedroom and en-suite rather than the curtain.

The easy access to the beach was great, and we went for a good few walks during our stay.

We would definitely recommend the Beach Sun Retreat to anyone and hope to return in the future.
