Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for your email. We had a really fantastic weekend at The Rocks - the house was amazing, the photos do not even begin to do it justice and of course we were spoilt with gorgeous sunny weather. We very much enjoyed celebrating my Dad's 81st and my 40th birthday there. We live in Kingston Upon Thames and so it was very apt that the house was called 'Kingston Rocks'! Thank you for a really great family weekend.



My sister and Dad did the check in with Diana and had no issues - they enjoyed being shown all the rooms in turn. We also found the local shop very handy and well stocked. And the Bluebird Cafe, even though it was extremely busy, was great service, value and food.

Amazing views / beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house was spot on, just a stones throw away from the beach. The house itself was lovely and the perfect size for our group of 12 adults and 2 children. We could all fit in to one room together socially, or spread out throughout the houses 2 living rooms, balcony, dining area and garden if you needed your own space. The hot tub was a treat, and we loved the rotating seat pod that was also in the garden.

Sarah, the owner, was very quick at responding to all of my email queries and questions before I even booked it until after our stay. And she returned my security deposit the very next day!

Overall my family and I had a wonderful time at The Rocks beach house.

Very clean and comfortable. Well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Overall, very good, wonderfully positioned by the sea and with fantastic views from many of the rooms.Feel that one of the bedrooms should have had twin beds rather than a double, probably the front bedroom.We had to call the maintainable man out to help us with the front door lock which we found difficult to open. The birthday cake which Sarah left was a lovely surprise extra and delicious.The grandsons loved the loft rooms. The information folder was very useful. We all really enjoyed the family birthday weekend, thank you.

nobody does it better......

From the moment you enter this superb property you know you and your family/guests will be in for a treat. The view of the beach and sea are, of course, sublime. The luxury touches in the house will make even the most picky holiday maker satisfied. Comfort is the word. Plenty of room for everyone to enjoy, and we cant wait to return again and again.

You won't be disappointed

  • 5 of 5

This our second stay at the Rocks Beach House. The house is beautifully designed and has great views overlooking the beach. We were staying at the house for my sisters 60th birthday as an extended family and Sarah the owner kindly left us a beautiful cake to welcome us.

The house has everything you could need for a great stay, including a little gym if you don't fancy a walk on the beach!

We would definitely recommend staying at the Rocks. You can even get catering as Sarah has lots of contacts. We chose The Lamb restaurant in Angmering for Sunday lunch on Sarah's recommendation. The food was delicious.

Sarah makes your stay hassle fee and we hope to stay in her other beach house next year.

Stylish house in a stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a stylish and beautifully presented house with stunning views over the beach. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The owner's communication was excellent. The local town is within an easy walk along the green which runs between the end of the garden and the beach where there is everything you could need including a lovely pub and a very good Chinese. There's also a rather fabulous bakery from which the owner had bought us a huge cake as a welcome gift which was a lovely touch. There are a group of ten of us staying for a two night pre-Christmas break and all of us had a wonderful time.
