“Lovely house in great location”
Reviewed 28 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The house is on a tasteful estate of similar houses with a seaside theme i.e. wood faced and painted either white or pale blue. Only a short walk to the dunes which are beautiful as is the beach. The house itself is clean and very well presented and with quality fittings. Our stay was in October so we welcomed the excellent central heating system which warmed it up very quickly and made it very cosy. The only small niggles were one of the patio doors and small window had condensation between the glass and therefore spoilt the outlook, the garden area could have been made look more attraction i.e. some plants in pots to add some greenery. Having said that it didn't detract from our overall stay, which was most enjoyable.

“Very comfortable”
Reviewed 6 July 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 ”
Reviewed 13 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

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 7 June 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 26 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

people found this review helpful

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.
