“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed September 29, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We always book with "Beside the Sea Holidays" Richard and Sophie are excellent and they are always there if you need anything before during and after your stay, Breakwater is a lovely holiday cottage, its comfortable, spotlessly clean and all you need to bring are your clothes a the cottage provides everything, just a short walk away and you have the lovely camber beach. Its our second stay at breakwater but we will be back as we have been on holiday with Beside the Sea 5 times now as we love it so much, the bedrooms are cosy and comfortable and the garden is great to sit out and chill. Kitchen has everything you need all in all its a great holiday with hopefully great weather.

“Home from home (again!)”
Reviewed September 19, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This stay is the second we have had this year with Beside the Sea and at a property in 'Whitesands' at Camber.

Each property stands out for different reasons but overall they are good quality, well equipped and are maintained at a very high level.

The 3 bed semi was more than enough space for us. We were very lucky with weather and were out everyday. The one day we did satay at home was like being at home! Functionally everything worked and we didn't even have to think much about living at Breakwater.

The part that makes this stay different from your average holiday cottage let is 'Beside the Seaside' and more specially Sophie and Richard. Nothing is too much for them and for someone (like me) who is a fussy so and so they deal with the most minute detail, query or question imeadiately. I've said it in my other reviews but these guys are the best and if you are thinking of ever letting out your property as a holiday let then these guys are the winning formula.

We have booked two more stays for the year and at Christmas.

Thank you very much for the lovely review and are pleased that you enjoyed your second stay with us, this time at Breakwater. We like to be able to offer our guests a better experience than they would receive from a faceless agency or an owner that lives miles away, so your glowing comments are very much appreciated! Look forward to seeing you back at Christmas. Richard, Sophie, Arthur & Oscar

“Very nice cottage”
Reviewed August 12, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed for one week in Breakwater Cottage with four adults and one child. The house is very well equipped and was clean at our arrival.

We really enjoyed the little garden and the living room in the evening when our little daughter was sleeping.

The road is very quiet, the beach just a short walk away, next supermarket just a short drive to Rye and enough good restaurants in Camber itself.

We had everything we needed ;-)

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay with us at Breakwater. Having a new born ourselves (Arthur) we have first hand experience of the difficulties of traveling with a nipper and so we try to make it as stress free as possible for our guests when they bring their little bundles of joy on holiday with them! We look forward to welcoming you all back very soon. Richard, Sophie, Arthur & Oscar the dog

“Delightful Stay”
Reviewed June 29, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a fabulous weekend at Breakwater Cottage. The house is very comfortable with everything we needed for a great weekend. All of the accommodation was extremely comfortable with a really well equipped kitchen which made it a very relaxing and easy place to stay. We would definitely return to this lovely house. The Camber Sands/ Rye area is a fantastic place to visit with lovely restaurants and fresh seafood widely available. Definitely a foodie heaven.

“Perfect rental for pet owners”
Reviewed June 13, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed here at the end of May for a week and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was equipped with everything you could need,nicely set out and easy maintenance to tidy up after the pets!. The house is in a lovely little estate and was a 5 min walk from the beach. Plenty of places to take the dogs for a walk and plenty of places to visit from the area, would recommend this property.

Clean, spacious and very well equipped holiday home. Sunny garden. Close to the beach yet in a quiet residential road. Would suit families and adult groups alike.
