Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

You ain’t seen happy ‘til you’ve seen a happy Staffie.
We booked this as a last minute getaway for two of us and our pup and it didn’t disappoint. The location is as described, very close to the beach. On arrival the cottage was very cosy, very clean and very tidy with all that is needed for self catering. We stayed from 1st-3rd Jan 2024, the weather was foul but it didn’t stop us walking our pup on the beach, getting soaked safe in the knowledge the wood burner would warm us quickly on return. It’s a cosy place with no passing traffic due to its location. It’s dog friendly too with high fencing all round and a lockable gate which is great. Just as good is that the local cafes, bars, restaurants and shops of Rye all seemed dog friendly and everyone greeted us with a smile. It’s rare to turn up at a place and get exactly what is described but this place didn’t disappoint, and neither did the host with great communication from the start even to the point of informing us we could check in early if needed. If you’re looking at staying in Camber/Rye don’t think twice about booking Owlers Retreat, just book it. Property 10/10 Location 10/10 Value for money 10/10 Host (really was) 11/10 Having a happy Staffie….. priceless Thanks Dominic, was worth every penny.

Fabulous place to stay!
The owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and special. Lovely comfortable beds, fluffy towels, powerful shower, logs for the burner with a fully equipped kitchen. Large fridge with a bottle of fizz ( a lovely welcome gift) Toys for the kids and adults, buckets and spades in the garage. Lovely south facing dog friendly garden. Plenty of space for 2 cars to park outside the retreat garage. The house is a few minutes walk to the beach and pubs. I spoke to the owner a couple of times , he was very helpful and the booking was easy. We had such a fab time and plan to return next year.

Lovely beach house in perfect location
Had an excellent stay at Owlers Retreat. Very comfortable, tastefully decorated, all the amenities you could need both for staying at the property but also equipment to take to the beach. Lots of extras like family games, coffee pods, firewood etc very helpful. The property is a stone’s throw from the stunning beach but also has a lovely garden to relax in. Best of all was the extremely helpful and responsive owner who went out of his way to accommodate some medical equipment we needed delivered. Would definitely stay again if returning to Camber Sands.

Beautiful, pet friendly beach house
Fantastic accommodation just a short walk from the beach. Beautiful, well thought out interior, a real home from home. Lovely, secure garden with grass area and decking. Great communication with Dominic (owner). Would definitely recommend and hope to come back soon.

Seaside break
We loved our stay at Owlers and hope to go back soon. It’s ideally located, just a few minutes walk on the sandy road to the beach which is stunning. Very quiet spot. Great for a family with children and dog as has nice enclosed garden with a grassy area and a decking perfect to dine out. Everything you need is provided and the accommodation has a lovely rustic feel but is really modern (great shower, comfy beds, coffee machine, sound system and I could go on).

Truly Idyllic for both humans and dogs!
Fantastic place to stay! Owlers Retreat is a total gem, everything is perfectly designed for relaxing both inside and out. The garden is amazing, the decking area was in use every day most of the day by all of us including our dog. We were blessed with amazing weather, but even at nearing 30 degrees the dog could still find a nice shady spot in the garden or head indoors to the cool wooden floors for a kip. Location is great, with a field to exercise the dogs in just around the corner and a path leading to the all year dog friendly section of the beach on which you can walk for miles. Thanks again Dominic for our 2nd wonderful stay here, everything was perfect, we will be back!

Lovely pet friendly beach house 100 yards from the beautiful Camber Sands.
We visited at the end of March therefore most of the holiday attractions were closed but this was fine for us; we virtually had the beach to ourselves! There were well stocked shops and some restaurants/pubs in walking distance of the house. Rye is a short drive away for a change of scenery. The house was very well equipped. We cooked every night and the kitchen had everything we needed and the equipment and utensils were of good quality. There was a lovely big fridge. The furnishings and decor were attractive and well thought out. The house was warm but we used the log burner every night for the joy of it. The painted floors throughout were not only beautiful but practical too. We didn’t manage to play our music through the wireless Bose speaker but I think that was only down to our ignorance of most things technical. I was impressed by the enclosed and secure garden, good for dogs, but also the ability to lock the outside gate.

Awesome Place !
We have recently spent 3 nights at Owlers Retreat & could not recommend it highly enough. The location is second to none being a stones throw from the beautiful beach & walking distance to our favourite pub The Owl! The garden is fully enclosed & has a stunning large deck that is south facing which catches the sun all day. We were lucky enough to have incredible warm & sunny weather in February & were able to make full use of the outside deck and garden soaking up the rays. The accommodation was equally impressive & we made very good use of the fully equipped kitchen & spent a couple of cosy nights in. It really is a home from home & we are very much looking forward to a return visit. Thank you Dominic. Kind Regards J&M

Perfect chill out
I've stayed in Camber many times over the years in a selection of beach houses, and Owlers didn't disappoint. It was perfect for us to relax with our dog and my mum. The garden being totally enclosed to stop nosy dogs going off exploring! A stone's throw from my favourite beach enabling me to shoot out to capture the incredible sunset across the sea. Well equipped, clean, tidy. Incredible water pressure in the shower! Love the beach theme and the colour scheme in the kitchen. A very thoughtful welcome pack on arrival including bread, butter, juice and a bottle of prosecco which was very much appreciated! And the weather was very kind to us as well!
