Camber is situated on the Sussex coast between Rye and Lydd. This part of the coastline is known for its beautiful sandy beaches and safe bathing, an ideal family holiday location. When the sea goes out there is up to half a mile of sand before you can dip a toe in the water, even when the tide is in, children can paddle safely due to the gradients of the sands. The sand dunes that protect this area are havens for picnics, giving shelter and privacy. Camber is a hot spot for watersports enthusiasts, the beaches running from here to Jury’s Gap are perfect for all forms of sea and watersports, including windsurfing and sailing, hang-gliding and sand yachting, to name but a few! Two well established centres offer tuition for those taking their first plunge, and they also have equipment and wetsuits available for hire for those whose taste for the sea and its exhilarating air have already taken hold, and the car parking is free! Camber is less well known than many other towns which runs along this coastline, but still has a lot to offer visitors.

With many quaint, seaside and market towns, historic sites and miles of glorious coastline to explore, Sussex has it all for a great holiday destination.

When we arrived at the property, last weeks rubbish was on the front step, which was there for all our stay.. Unfortunately, we had to add to it when we left as we had no information on refuse collection. There was no information pack in the property with useful numbers etc. The property was described as a cottage but in reality was a terrace house on a housing estate. The "courtyard" was tiny and very unkempt. The mattresses on both beds were extremely uncomfortable and desperately need replacing. In our opinion the property is barely large enough to accommodate four adults. The pipes on the boiler were leaking. All decor was very tired. The lightbulb in the downstairs loo was not working and we could not find any spares. Although some effort was made to make us feel welcome by providing cake etc, it is not a very cosy and welcoming holiday property. In our opinion the whole of the property would benefit from an update and re-decoration. Although the property itself appeared clean, the fixtures and fittings were grubby and worn out.

Would have likes to see more host's input regarding the cottage.. Also we were unsure how to handle waste & rubbish The bin was quite full on arrival & not emptied in the week we were there. This in no affected our very enjoyable stay in this cottage very comfortable & great ;location. Thank you.

The bin was full when we arrived which made dealing with our own rubbish very difficult.. ..we left two tied bin bags in the back yard as didn’t feel it was appropriate to leave it out the front. There didn’t appear to be any re-cycling bins although other properties did. WiFi would have been nice. There was a mop bucket but no mop so bought one and also no hand towels for toilets so bought those too. I contacted Sykes prior to holiday as it was my daughter’s birthday on the 1st Nov asking how well stocked the kitchen was and listed specific items so we could bring anything needed. I was in communication with Molly who was very polite and helpful. She contacted the owners who said that of the things listed all we needed was weighing scales. When we arrived there was no mixing bowl and no lasagne dish so had to buy these too which was disappointing. Other than that an ok cottage, clean and 10 minutes walk from the beach; very small but ok for a short break. The only other niggle was the washer/drier which washed but didn’t dry so we gave up in the end and used the airers that were on site.

We loved our stay at Hakuna Matata, it was very comfortable and ideally located for the beach, the development is very nice and quiet , and we would recommend..

A really good experience.. Excellent for the beach and local sightseeing. No Wifi. A suggestion: It would be a great help if the information pack included a sheet listing such matters as: Day to put out the dustbin Nearest Accident and Emergency Doctor Dentist Police Post Office

Lovely property, very clean and comfortable, really appreciated the cake, biscuits and apple juice on artival.. Few minutes walk to the beach, which was very quiet (exactly what we wanted) although in summer and school holidays I’m sure it would extremely busy due to Holiday camp around the corner!) We would return. A couple of points that would have made a difference: there were no trays for the oven, we had to pick up numberous dog poos in the garden from a previous visitor before letting our dog out. There wasn’t an information booklet for house details, local amenities/services or a guest comments book. March 2018

It was beautiful! Everything appeared very clean and the extra touch of juice, cake and biscuits was a lovely surprise. The only slight issue I had was when we moved the table out it was very dirty behind. There was a lot of short dark hairs on the bedding too. The bedding and towels were lovely and fresh and white. Also for your info the bathroom door needs attention as the lock is broken. Overall a really great stay and very much looking forward to coming back. Perfect time away from the treadmill of family life. The sand dunes were AMAZING for two mischievous boys. Thank you.
