Amazing house for a fun weekend away! Lots to do near by. We found a spa about a 10 minute drive away and we spent an afternoon rowing on the river, also a short drive away. The house was perfect. Everything there that you could need. All very clean and the decoration was just beautiful. The sun room was great for lounging as well as partying! The cinema room was lovely too. We were greeted by a really nice house keeper who handed over the keys and showed us how to work a few bits. We did have a random storm which caused a short power cut. Unfortunately we couldn't find the fuse box for a while and couldn't get in touch with anyone straight away. Eventually one of the girls tracked it down so we were OK after an hour of panic! We thought we may have had to have a silent disco!! Just one of those things though. I would definitely recommend this house for a week or weekend away with friends or family. And I'm hoping to be able to book again soon! 10/10 Thankyou :)

Thank you so much and so sorry once again for the power issues. We tried to attend as soon as we could and will definitely point the fuse box out to all future guests. Do hope we can welcome you back. Warm and sunny regards.

“Quirky and fun”
Reviewed March 13, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

A great house for a get together and loved the sun! The cinema room is smaller than anticipated and is really a large TV but the sun light and disco equipment more than made up for it.
The kitchen could do with an upgrade and some warmth as it was quite chilly and it was dissappointing that the two single rooms were quite small and a curtain rail fell down on me during the night which nearly gave me a heart attack! Having said that, the two double rooms were tastefully done and the bathrooms were elegant. It's great being on the beach and there are some nice pubs near by with great pub grub. Dymchurch in the winter is a bit dead for young people but Theer is plenty to do within half an hours drive? We had a fabulous time in the house and would definitely come back . I do think for the price paid that you should have an earlier check in and a later check out time.

Thanks Sue for your sunny review. The kitchen is being upgraded this week with a new floor which should make it warmer. And you are right the smaller bedrooms don't compete with the larger ones. However guests with children find these more manageable. We have also experimented with earlier check in and later check out times and sometimes can accommodate these depending on whether we have guests before or after. So pleased to hear you'll be back for more sunshine and we will do our best to let you arrive earlier. Sunny regards Louise

“Wow, wow, wow, wow!”
Reviewed July 24, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We originally booked the beach sun retreat for my sister's hen party, but due a change in plans, we used it instead for a girly weekend & what a wonderful relaxing weekend we had, all the amenities were as described and the decor was more impressive than photographs show, we were made to feel very welcome & with the very generous hamper we had everything we needed!

Being able to party and relax without moving venue was a bonus and having experienced the sun room which was absolutely glorious particularly with the bar & music in the background made leaving very difficult!

They say every cloud has a silver lining & as my sister's hen party will need to be reorganised I get to experience Sun Beach Retreat all over again!

“Absolutely faultless – can't wait to go back”
Reviewed June 3, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Our time at Beach Sun Retreat was perfect. From the welcome hamper of complimentary goodies to the top notch extra pull out bed provided for my niece, Karl and Louise couldn't have been more hospitable. The house itself is stunning and has a real wow factor. The kitchen was fully kitted out with everything we could possible need and the bedrooms were immaculate and gorgeous. The sun room and dj equipment is just amazing and the kids had a great time playing about on the decks and topping up their tan! There really isn't a bad word to say hence why we are all in agreement that we'd love to go back for longer next time. Worth every penny.
