An excellent holiday home close to restaurants, shops and Viking Bay beach in Broadstairs. Very clean and well kept, with the added bonus of private parking. It has a small garden with plenty of sitting and a conservatory dining room with lovely views. Thanks to Gina the owner for providing us with extras such as bread, butter and milk. Handwash, toilet rolls, dishwasher tablets, etc, were also provided which was very thoughtful and there were plenty of towels. A lovely holiday home we hope to visit again.
As the title says, this was a true "home from home" for us, a family of 6.
The house is very tastefully decorated and perfectly located in a quiet area (cul-de-sac) and crucially has easy parking for a large vehicle directly on its own forecourt. The house is just a few minutes away from the main shops and pubs in town, the main Viking Bay beach, and Stoney Bay (our favourite), with easy access northbound to even more beautiful coastal beaches like Botany Bay and Kingsgate within 10 or so minutes, not to mention the huge shopping mall at Westwood Cross. Perfect.
The house itself had *everything* we needed, most importantly a washing machine and dish washer, plus a lovely winter garden for eating (it does get quite hot in there in the summer, but that goes without saying). Excellent communication with Gina beforehand, especially coming from Germany, plus lovely welcoming starter packs on arrival. And a special mention for what for us is a perfect rental owner quality: warm and welcoming upon arrival, then completely non-interfering. It's not always a given. Similar point regarding the neighbours: warm, friendly hello's all round and never once made to feel like "invaders".
Would we stay again? You bet.
Special positive points: Lovely new sofa suite and the kids LOVED playing Mario on the wii! Clearly an owner who cares a lot about her property and guests.
If we could make one wish: The dining chairs were a *little* bit on the uncomfortable side after a while, however this is often a personal preference thing.
Thank you Gina so much for a lovely stay!
This was a family break with my Son his Partner and my new Granddaughter. We arrived as per check-in time and the owner Gina was there to welcome us and show us the house. She also provided a very nice welcome pack and contact numbers should we have any questions.
The house had everything you would expect of a family home with three nice comfortable bedrooms. The hose also has a small garden and a conservatory with a large dinning table.
In terms of location its a 10 min (Max) walk to Viking bay and the town with all the shops, bars and restaurants.
Top tips: Try Posillipo Italian restaurant and Morellis ice cream parlour.
Thanks Gina for a very nice week
Great location, you can walk everywhere, to the beach and all local attractions.
We had a friendly welcome and the house was just as advertised with special touches, games for the children, dishwasher tablets, washing powder all the things you needed for a stress free break. Comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen and parking for two cars.
We stayed there with 3 adults and two young children. The house was clean and as described. The kitchen is spacious and clean with oil, vinegar, salt, tea, coffee etc. provided. The dining area with those views is lovely and hearing the rain on the roof is great. Hand soap and dishwasher tablets (and other stuff I didn't check) are also provided, so basically everything you need. There is a high chair, cot, bedding, and plenty of towels. The beds are ok. The heating works really well. The house is a bit creaky in most places and noise travels easily. The kitchen would benefit from a new frying pan and we descaled the kettle when we arrived but otherwise it really has everything you could need. There are plenty of restaurants a short walking distance away in the town centre near the beach.
The owner is lovely and provides a detailed list of everything you need to know around the house.
I would stay here again.
