“Fantastic!!!! Wonderful Property, Ideal for large families and groups.”

Great property, exactly what we were looking for. Will 100% stay here again. Angela was brilliant, great communication and very accommodating. Three, bathrooms, three kitchens and three living rooms made it ideal for everyone to still have their own space whilst staying together. The second floor living room is beautiful with sea views from the balcony. We also spent a Saturday on the first floor living room and that was very cosy, we all lounged around for the day watching tv together. Would highly recommend The Ark.

“A nautical dream, an absolutely gorgeous place to stay”
Reviewed 4 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

people found this review helpful

Upon arriving at The Ark, my friends and I were taken aback by how stunning the house was, and the awe didn't stop when we entered the building. It was a nautical dream, an absolutely gorgeous place to stay, and all of us are now wishing we could be back there again tomorrow.

The Ark had everything we needed and then some, the pool table being an excellent source of entertainment. The crowning jewel of the house however has to be the top floor balcony; framed with fairy lights and an excellent view of the sea, this was our group's favourite spot to relax, even in the wind and rain!

All in all, we had a fabulous New Year here, and would very happily come again.

Thanks Angela for everything!

“Wonderful for a large group.”
Reviewed 13 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

There were 13 of us, friends and family, from the USA for a family wedding. Ages ranged from 21 to 61. Angela was amazingly accommodating with our needs. The house was great for such a large group. There is space for everyone to be together or go off and be
in smaller groups or on their own. The only thing that would have made it perfect was if the
beach across the street had been opened. If Angela could have arranged that I'm sure she
would have. If we're back in England with another large group we'll stay here.

“If i could give this stay 6 stars then i would!!!”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Even before we arrived Angela ( the owner ) was extremely helpful answering all my questions and arranging the cots etc in the rooms we required them to be in. There was a large group of us who stayed, most of which were children! the youngest being 9 months and the oldest 13. We stayed for a week and we could have stayed for longer! The Ark had everything we needed, it is like a home from home. The bed i slept in!!!! oh my, so comfortable i have had to come home and buy the mattress! best nights sleep i have ever had.
All the children loved it! especially the pool table. The great thing about this house is it has 3 levels, each with their own bathroom, kitchen, living rooms and bedrooms. So if you are traveling in a large group and want your own space then you have it! Or like us, we would all sit on the ground floor around the huge table and eat breakfast, lunch and dinner, and then we all sat on the 1st floor on the comfy sofas of a night playing cards and watching telly.
i have 5 children and our friends who came with us had 4. Even with such a large group of us it never felt like the house was crowded. So there is plenty of space. Camber is a nice quiet location with the beach so it was nice to go on holiday and just chill! relax! that is something that doesn't happen very often with my lot! ha. But i would go back next year and i would recommend the house to everyone.
