Perfect Romantic Getaway
My husband and I stayed in this apartment for a week and I will try to explain how amazing it was as concisely as possible.
Accomodation: The pictures simply do not do the apartment justice. The apartment is more well-furnished and spacious than the pictures even show. The kitchen and living area is decorated in a classic contemporary style with tons of open space and a breathtaking view of the ocean. The apartment comes fully equipped with cooking supplies, etc. and is set up as truly a home away from home, even down to a spare umbrella in case you need an extra one. The beds are very plush and you just have to be careful not to sleep in too long or you'll miss the beautiful scenery, including a panoramic view of the sun rising and setting. Also, the dining area/living room is equipped with a surround sound system, so bring some nice CD's to listen to while you get ready/cook.
Local Area: Margate is a perfect getaway place. There is an Aldi store within 2 minutes of walking from the apartment where you can get groceries, flowers, etc. Also within 10 minutes of walking you can access a huge variety of shops, restaurants, pubs, bars, beaches, and entertainment. It's a perfect place for anyone because there is beautiful scenery (including beaches you can take long walks on at any time), shops for those that love to do some shopping, all types of delicious food to appease any appetite, casinos and bars for those who love night life, and family events including a theater right across the street and a playground for the kids on the beach. You don't need a car unless 15 minutes of easy walking wears you out and you can't possibly run out of things to do.
Perfect for: Anyone, unless you are looking for busy city life and upscale, expensive shops. If New York City is your perfect vacation spot, then Margate is not the place for you. It has a small town feel, but with so much to do and explore, it feels much larger.
Some recommendations: Bring umbrellas just in case. The local restaurants are great, but buying your own groceries and using the apartment's kitchen to have some quality home cooking time is wonderful too. The apartment is so lovely, you won't mind staying in and enjoying some nice home cooked food. Some local places we went that were great were the Indian Princess (upscale Indian food), Newbys (upscale steak/seafood), and Kabuki (a modern-feeling bar that's good for lounging/and or dancing).
