average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

Lovely apartment in the heart of Rye!

  • 4 of 5


We gave 4 stars out 5 because the stay was very enjoyable for me and my family. The equipment and the space in the flat were fabulous. The view over the river was also great! We were absolutely pleased with the cleanliness of the rooms and the decoration of each of them was very lovely.

The missing star is due to the lack of air conditioning that made the two bedrooms upstairs very hot and difficult to sleep during hot weather and a bit more curtains would be a plus.

We definitely recommend this place to anyone!

Excellent home for families in beautiful Rye!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the old boat house! We traveled with three adults and three children (9,7,4) and the house was just right for us. We were a short, scenic walk from everything in Rye, as well. We ate in town when we wanted to, but the kitchen gave us a great option when the kids wee too tired and we wanted to cook for ourselves. Overall this was a fantastic stay. Charlie answered all my questions in a timely manner and didn't steer us wrong on the restaurans. Great find, we loved our stay.

Wundervoll und charmant!!!

  • 5 of 5

Rye ist ein wunderschönes, kleines Städtchen mit bezaubernden kleinen alten Gassen. Das Ferienhaus ist stilvoll und charmant !!! ausgestattet. Es liegt sehr zentral, auch die vorhandene Garage ist prima. Unseren Kindern und uns hat es sehr gut gefallen. Sehr, sehr empfehlenswert.

Wonderful place!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much for sharing this wonderful apartment with us! It's a cosy place to relax after long days of sightseeing - and there is a lot to visit within an hour to drive : Canterbury, Whitstable, Dover, Eastbourne, different castles between Hastings and Tunbridge Wells!

We felt very comfortable in your new decorated house, the beds were very good and so is the comfortable sofa with a foot part! From the sitting accomodation you have a wonderful sight over the street and harbour, there is always something going on ;-) the only limitation is the "sound" from this street and the sitting accomodation (was a bit hard for long sits ) and we missed a salad bowl and an extra big pot.

We hope to come again and will recommend your house to our friends !
