Dunescape is a contemporary-style eco-home beside the sea and right behind the dunes at Camber Sands. The property is arranged over three floors, and has three bedrooms, including an informal teenagers’ bedroom/den. The house sleeps six.
It was built in 2007. Solar power provides hot water throughout the summer, geothermal heat from the ground keeps the house snug during the winter, and a grass-planted roof soaks up the rain and minimises the visual impact of the development.
Unlike many other properties to let in the area, Dunescape is a mere 30 second stroll from the sand dunes and beach (excited kids can do it in about 10 seconds), and the small (20-unit) design-led development of which the property is part feels nothing like just another housing estate. Your well-behaved pets are welcome.
Dunescape is a real holiday home, as our guests will tell you. There are some quotes from them here. And there are our 21 5* TripAdvisor reviews . We are also on AirBnB here. Joining very recently, we only have a few reviews so far, but they rate us ovefrall at 4.7*.
On the ground floor you’ll find the games/utility room, equipped with a full-size table tennis table and home to the washing machine, tumble drier and freezer. The informal teenagers’ bedroom/den is at the rear, with a door to the terrace – with its six-seater picnic table – and communal dunescape garden. This room has a double sofa bed, a single bed, and Smart TV.
Oak-faced stairs lead you up to the first floor where you will find a light, airy, and spacious living room (above left).
Floor-to-ceiling glass doors lead through to the large west-facing deck which catches the afternoon and evening sun.
In the living room you will find a 50in Smart TV with Netflix. Unlimited wireless internet is provided.
There are some unique items of furniture and artwork. Our tables were created by local company Carbon using reclaimed timbers from Rye Harbour. Our original canvas artworks feature local artists Gavin Luker and Clive Sawyer, plus Camber Sands-inspired glass art on a marine theme that incorporates driftwood found on the beach.
Off the living room is the kitchen, fitted with all-mod-cons including an eight-setting dishwasher, oven, four-burner ceramic hob, microwave oven, extractor, coffee maker and juicer. The kitchen is fully equipped, and will satisfy the needs of even the keenest holiday cook.
Half a flight of stairs takes you to the second bedroom and family bathroom. This bedroom may be configured to sleep up to three people. There is a day bed which can be used as a double for a couple, or for two children sleeping head to toe with two single duvets. There is also a single bed.
This bedroom even has its own drum balcony which is just large enough to stand on and take in the sea air. The adjacent bathroom has a bath tub, shower over, loo and washbasin.
Up another half a flight of stairs and you’ll arrive at the landing library and the enormous master bedroom (above left). The king-sized bed is made from reclaimed timber from Rye Harbour, and features a decadently comfortable posture-paedic mattress.
Floor-to-ceiling windows lead out onto a balcony where the spectacular Camber sunsets may be enjoyed.
Off the main bedroom is the en-suite with natural daylight, loo, washbasin, and a double-sized shower cubicle with power shower above.
