House in Pett Level, Rye, East Sussex, England - Rural Location With Direct Access To A Quiet Secluded Beach
Luxury 3 bed beach house, sleeps 6, located directly on a ‘well kept secret’ stretch of beach, near the ancient Cinque Ports town of Rye. Rebuilt a few years ago the house has every modern comfort and is a perfect beach retreat, bringing a touch of Miami-style chic to Britain’s sunniest coast. A small private garden provides direct access to the beach and has built in seating and a BBQ area as well as an outside beach shower. The beach itself is an area of outstanding natural beauty and the house is one of only 20 on the beach giving the whole experience of living in the house an exclusive feeling. At high tide the beach is shingle but the tide goes out to reveal a vast expanse of sand and rock-pools, providing hours of fun.The house is great for groups of adults or families looking for a quintessential beach holiday and also a perfect base for fishing and hiking. Dog owners will be in their element since dog walking is permitted on the beach immediately outside the house.

About the Owner
I've been living in the area for almost 7 years now, firstly commuting from London but now it's my main home.
It's such a special place it's hard to leave - let alone get on the train for the London commute. The area is full of fantastic surprises, from amazing architecture to areas of outstanding natural beauty and amazing scenery, plus lots of traditions that make it quite unique.
The big draw for me though is the coastline, I had always wanted to live near the sea. I don't think I will every leave. Plus I hope, after staying in one of my properties that you won't want to either! Maybe you'll book a stay in one of the other properties we offer - we now manage a couple of properties nearby owned by neighbours as well as our own. Please get in touch.

Fantastic house/fantastic holiday - 5 out of 5
We rented Ocean Point for 6 of my family and found the house amazing. The location is fabulous, directly on the beach, and in an unspoilt area. The house was spotless and catered for all our needs. We found the house luxurious and enjoyed watching films on the huge cinema screen. It was a thoroughly relaxing holiday and I would definitely recommend it.
What a wonderful house to be in. It was so restorative to have such a fantastic outlook. We loved the house and its clever design and the doggies loved swimming, walks on the beach and watching passing pooches (making them jealous!).
Had a fantastic time, love the house.
Fits our family (2 young children and 2 dogs) so well, easy to keep clean, lovey and light and a bit quirky too.

We love the house and the beach and we had a lovely time. Thankyou!
4.7 based on 6 holidaymaker reviews
After a long and arduous journey we arrived at the loveliest house in a great location. The house was light and airy and at every turn you felt like you were at the seaside. My grandchildren aged 3 & 5 loved it. The beach was usually quite empty and it felt like your own back garden. Great for rock pooling in the evenings. Couple of pubs in the locality, Royal Oak was good, would definitely return.
I would heartily recommend a stay at this modern beautifully positioned home. The early morning light through the sea facing windows and the sun on the balconies are only two of the great features of the holiday. A cleanly designed home with plenty of space to relax both inside and out. An excellent in house entertainment system for those rainy days. Stunning bathrooms and cosy bedrooms make you feel that you are staying in your dream home. The clean white lines of the design help make the stay relaxing. I truly felt that I had a break from everything. Long walks along the sea front and with Rye only a short drive away we felt spoilt! We took the time to investigate the beautiful countryside as well so felt we had the best of both worlds. This was quiet get away for us as a small family but the house would also have been great as a full family get together, great private outside space as well. Lots of private parking. Would happily recomend this as a holiday destination. Housekeeper and home owner very personable, prompt, considerate and up beat. Absolutely no regrets about booking this. All this and lovely weather as well! What more could you ask for.
When we arrived at Ocean Point we were absolutely delighted with this stunning home. Finished to the highest standards this beautiful property is set over 3 floors and is spacious and comfortable.
Set on the beach front it is in lovely location with Rye and Hastings only 5 minutes away.
We had a lovely weekend and would highly recommend staying.
We will definitely look to return later in the year!
I can gaurantee you will not be disappointed if you decide to stay here!
Ocean Point Rye Wow!
We booked Ocean Point in Rye East Sussex looking for a beach house with easy access to the beach! First look on the web and it looked fantastic! When we arrived it was a WOW!! Everything about it was excellent and as per description, I have never been to Miami but if this was modelled on a Miami Beach house then they have got it spot on! All facilities were great, top floor with views from the full length Balcony and the sliding doors open made for a relaxing time. The owner was great to deal with and her staff were fantastic including dealing with a Pet emergency during our stay! Great property would recommend to anyone!
Perfect England Get away
Myself and my family stayed at Ocean point for 5 days in September.
although the weather wasnt at its best the holiday could not have gone any better! we made the most of our stay by visting the local sites and even on a rainy day we were happy to stay in and make the most of it.
Ocean Point is a modern homely house with an amazing sea view, the house had everything you needed.
It is perfect for families or even a nice getaway with a group of friends. I would recommend Ocean Point to anyone looking to get away from a busy lifestyle or city its the perfect place to unwined and chill out.
One of the major issues we had when finding a house to rent for our holiday was finding somewhere that allowed pets, Ocean Point offered us everything we needed and it couldnt of been more perfect. With the sea front as your back garden it was great for the dog.
the only downfall of the holiday was having to go home. if you are looking for somewhere to stay in England Ocean Point is the perfect getaway!
Pett Level Paradise
Ocean Point is in no way understated.
It proved the perfect property for our adult family with dogs, but would be equally suited to a young family with the beach 5 yards from the house.
This very modern house is fun to live in and very much lived up to the description in the literature; couple that with perfect local seafood and meat, it transports you to somewhere more exotic than you expect to find in the UK !
From the Owner
“When I bought the house it looked completely different. It's been completely rebuilt from top to toe, the locals said I brought a touch of 'Miami' glamour to the area and I'm glad because that's exactly what I intended! It's very glam indeed! You will feel (but hopefully not act!) like a minor pop star living in this house. lThe location is also really special since there are only about 20 houses on the beach - it's not even really a village. David Bowie's video for Ashes to Ashes was shot on the beach here and at very very low tide there are some remains of a 17th century shipwreck to be seen, although that is very rare. It's both seaside but also rural and remote which makes it a perfect location. The beach is never crowded, which I still find amazing to this day.”
