 Camber Sands beach house is a modern version of a beach hut designed with large symmetrical glazing elevations for marine environments to fit the gable shape of the contemporary design with rooflights and slim frame sliding glass doors opening out to the decking on the dunes.  

Two symmetrical Camber Sands beach houses were designed by architects Walker and Martin with large elevations of marine grade glazing offering seamless transitions direct to the beach – one of which would become one of Airbnb’s most sought-after rental beach houses, The Blue House.  

Camber Sands house on the beach front in Essex has been listed in The Sunday Times newspaper within the top 70 most sought after Airbnb’s and appeared on the wish lists of 3000 people last year, which is on par with rentals such as a tree house in Bali, or a cave dwelling in Santorini. We believe that the demand for this Camber Sands beach house lies more with the views gifted from the egg-shape bath through IQ's gable end windows and slim framed sliding glass doors that bring the ocean air inside, framing picture-perfect views of the sea and dunes with the added benefit that it is also a dog-friendly Airbnb beach house. 

The challenges of constructing and installing large elevations of glass to Camber Sands beach house, (with drifting sand and salty air) have certainly paid off since this Airbnb beach house was also shortlisted for a RIBA South East Award.
