Looney Dunes, Camber - 1 min to sand dunes, 2 sunny gardens, 3 bedrooms

Family-friendly holiday home in Rye
Looney Dunes is our own family holiday home - perfectly located right in the heart of the popular seaside resort of Camber Sands. Despite being just a moment's stroll from the famous 2-mile stretch of beach and its best bars and restaurants, the house enjoys peace and quiet even on the busiest of Summer days. With views of the sand dunes from the sunny south-facing back garden and upstairs bedrooms, it really is a fabulous place to take a holiday.

Since we come on holiday here ourselves, the house is very well equipped. Pretty much everything you might need has been thought of. In addition to the usual facilities that you might expect to find, you'll be in for a treat with original artworks, a whole wall of books in the living room (over 1,000 at the last count), a vintage Bang & Olufsen hifi system (with turntable and our record collection), a heap of board games, XBox360 (plus games) and loads of children's DVDs and movies to keep them entertained whilst you're enjoying a drink in the back garden - a total suntrap - watching the butterflies or the sun setting. The house is centrally heated throughout and enjoys a reliable superfast broadband connection through BT Infinity 2 at around 60 Mbps.

Looney Dunes has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 4 adults and 2 children - one master bedroom with a double bed, another main bedroom arranged either as two singles or joined together as a king-size double and a kids' bedroom with 2 full-size bunk beds. The two south-facing bedrooms enjoy views of the sand dunes. In the spacious family bathroom (no bath) there is a spacious shower cubicle with power shower, much the best way to clean away all the fine sand that you bring back from the long day at the beach!

There is plenty of room downstairs too. The house has a living room with French doors that open out fully onto a patio area with a lawn and flower beds beyond, plus floor-to-ceiling bookshelves along the entire length of one wall; a conservatory with dining table and chairs; a fully-equipped kitchen with separate larder; and a downstairs WC and porch area for storage.

The gardens must be our favourite part of this property. The south-facing back garden is the proverbial stone's throw from the sand dunes and is made up of a patio area and a flat lawn surrounded by shrubs and flowers on three sides (and populated by many species of butterfly throughout the long summer days). The garden is fenced all around and is fully enclosed. A high privet hedge in the front garden provides privacy from the cul-de-sac (so no passing traffic) and creates a natural goal for any penalty shoot out! This garden is also very sunny and provides off-street parking for 2 cars (3 at a pinch).

Here are the main details about the property:

Enclosed entrance porch - for all your coats, shoes, wellies, buckets and spades...
Hallway - with 3 under stairs cupboards; one converted into a larder with freezer and microwave; one containing an iron, ironing board, clothes horse, Miele vacuum cleaner; and one crammed full of kid's toys, masses of Lego, etc...

Galley Kitchen - fridge, freezer, electric cooker with hob, grill and oven, extractor fan, washer dryer, plenty of cupboards, toaster, kettle, Nespresso coffee machine, milk frother, plenty of crockery, cutlery, glassware and cookware, plus food basics (herbs, spices, condiments, etc)...
Door to:
Conservatory - with dining table and chairs, highchair (on request), blinds, door to back garden...

Cracking Camber
We spent the most wonderful May bank holiday at Looney Dunes. Chris was very communicative from the outset and went out of his way to make sure we had all the provisions and information we needed from the outset. After a slight oversight (on our part) around check in times he and his housekeeper were very accommodating and understanding. The house was perfect as a little bolthole for enjoying the Bank Holiday break for our family of 5 and 2 x dogs. Everything was pristine, the welcome pack was delicious and a lovely personal touch with home-baked goodies and it was perfectly located within a stones throw of shops, eateries, a park and of course the dunes and beach. Wonderful, thanks Chris and Jenny!

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic stay in Camber Sands
We couldn’t have asked for more from our mini holiday- 4 days of great weather, and a great holiday home in a fantastic location close to the beach. Chris the property owner was absolutely lovely, quick to respond to questions and requests, and the welcome basket and home tour was gratefully received. Highly recommend Looney Dunes to families, buckets and spades aplenty, toys & books and a lovely kids room. Thanks for a brilliant stay!

Short break May 2019

5/5 Excellent

A lovely, beautifully decorated house, minutes from the beach
We spent a long weekend at Looney Dunes with friends and had a wonderful, relaxing time. Chris met us on arrival and showed us where everything was. The house is immaculate, clean and has everything you could want, including a well stocked honesty larder, fully equipped kitchen, fab sound system and hundreds of books to while away a lazy afternoon. The dog basket and bowl were much appreciated by our dog who loved tearing around the secure back garden. We all would whole-heartedly recommend Looney Dunes and hope to return soon. Many thanks Chris for sharing a fantastic home, and thanks to your son for baking such a wonderful surprise birthday cake for my husband!

Looney Dunes - lovely house with all needs catered for!
When we arrived we met Chris who showed us around the property. My grandsons were particularly impressed there was an X Box which of course they played during our stay. They also loved the selection of dvds, and the older ones of us found ourselves reminiscing with some of the LP's! Then, if that wasn't enough, there were the many books to go through, that's if we had the time! Went to the beach, boys loved the beach board, badminton set and boules, all of which kept them busy. Luna felt very at home in the dog bed provided and settled in almost immediately. Lovely touches were the home made jam and chocolate cookies which made us feel at home. Our every need was catered for down to the beach towels, and nothing was too much trouble. We would not hesitate to recommend this lovely holiday property and hope to come back ourselves in the not too distant future! Thanks again Chris - we all had a lovely relaxing break, the boys didn't want to leave! Jenny, Brian & family
