About Janine Macqueen

15 Wishes is owned by my partner Kim and myself.

Kim is a graphic designer and I work in advertising.

Janine Macqueen purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Janine Macqueen chose East Sussex

We fell in love with 15 Wishes 7 years ago, and just had to buy it for its unique, quirky charm. Rye takes you back in time, cobbled streets, pubs with roaring fires and a high street full of independent shops.

What makes this apartment unique

15 Wishes is in the heart of Rye town, within walking distance to everything.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“loved it”We wanted a last minute getaway for a couple of days as we live in busy London. The drive down is perfect not too long, we were there within 1hr45 and as we walked in, we literally started to relax! With its cute quirky style and a bottle of wine awaiting it was like home from home. The village itself is very quaint and has lots of lovely antique shops to browse around and several decent eateries for breakfast lunch and dinner. We will definitely be re-booking in the summer to make more of the surrounding area which on this occasion we were unable to enjoy due to the cold weather, although I wasn't complaining from my comfy armchair in front of the fire in the George inn sipping a glass of wine.



“An absolute gem in a beautiful part of the country!”

I've now stayed at 'Wishes' 3 times and will continue to go back, it's like a home from home. As well as the 'groceries' provided on arrival such as bread, milk, butter, wine (a staple!), there are DVDs, music

Quirky, beautifully equipped and ideally positioned apartment

  • 5 of 5

Only a short hop from Rye station, this unusual and quirky apartment was the perfect holiday base. Up above the rooftops, the apartment was light and airy, enjoying sunshine at different times of the day. It had everything you could need and was surprisingly spacious. The central position meant that we could stroll out with ease to the various bars, restaurants and places of interest. (Excellent food at the Turkish restaurant, the Ship and the Standard.) As keen walkers it was as an excellent base to walk to Camber, Winchelsea and Rye Harbour. Hastings and Eastbourne were only short train rides away. It was lovely to come back to base to relax on the sofa, or enjoy a nice bath. Would certainly recommend it and wouldn't rule out a return visit.

Repeat visitor!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here four or five times over the years and love it every time. The cottage is full of character and charm, had everything you need and in a great location. Right in the heart of Rye, the train station, pubs and restaurants are all walking distance. It's one of my favorite places to visit and I would t stay anywhere else.

An absolute find!

  • 5 of 5

Loved loved loved our stay here, and it's definitely quirky! From the entrance above the old well to the little balcony overlooking the town we had a great spot to explore from. It's definitely got the personal touch and even suggestions of where to eat localy - including the chippy! There's a huge choice of coffee shops, eateries and ice-cream shops or you can cook in the apartment in the kitchen/diner, which was brilliant for the odd night when we just wanted to cosy up and relax. Perfect stay all round and we'll definitely be back.

Perfect short break

  • 5 of 5

What a charming little place! Lovely apartment tucked away in the centre of Rye decorated with a sense of fun. Great location for a few days away from the Big Smoke - had a great time wandering around the town and shops and going to the pubs. Nice touch of a welcome basket too. Really clean and perfectly maintained.
