Guestbook comments from the owner

The accommodation and service was first class.The location effectively on the promenade and very close to the nearby Military Canal provided us with the perfect place for walks and cycle riding (recommend "the Hub" cycle hire in Sandgate just along the coast). The whole family (two adults and two teenage girls) fully recommend this apartment and surrounding area as an ideal location for visiting the many places on offer in Kent and East Sussex; we visited Whitstable, Canterbury, Rye, Battle, Dungeness, Lydd and had a great afternoon at Camber Sands. Also try Port Lympne Wildlife Park.

Joanna made us feel extremely welcome and was very helpful recommending local facilities: swimming pool, tennis courts, shopping and restaurants - Italian Trattoria in High Street was great, also try Sotirio's in Hythe, and Tinto Tapas in Sandgate. Additionally, the personalised Welcome Pack was great.

A very special thank you to Joanna for all her help and the very warm welcome, facilitating an excellent and very enjoyable stay.

Perfect for our first family trip!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first break away with our (then!) 4 month old baby, and we couldn't have chosen a better apartment.

As others have stated the quality of the apartment is faultless, in fact it truly felt like a lovely home away from home. The layout of the apartment works perfectly, with plenty of space, utensils, equipment and all the mod cons you could wish for. For me personally I could never tire of the views, every window has a sea view! Very very relaxing but with easy access to everything you could need either in Hythe or Folkestone!

As parents with a baby we were keen to make sure we had enough space, easy access, parking, close to amenities and a place that is comfortable/relaxing for us to ensure we had a break away too! This apartment more than met our hopes. The designated parking spaces and lift (although it is only a few stairs) meant hassle free unloading! Whilst the promenade (directly in front of the apartment) was perfect for the buggy so we all had plenty of sea air!

We truly had a wonderful break and would definitely like to return again in the future.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this excellent apartment, which has extensive sea views from all the windows. It was great to be able to look out at the coast of France and see the shipping going backwards and forwards into Dover. Everything we could possibly need was provided. Joanna gave us really personal service - the best we have ever experienced. We can highly recommend this apartment.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic location right on the seafront at Hythe Beach. Apartment immaculately clean and very well equipped. Very nice welcome pack and good supply of family board games and books. Would recommend to family and friends without hesitation, and hope to return. Places to visit nearby; Torbay fish & chip shop in high street, Bodiam Castle (NT), Sissinghurst Castle (NT), Canterbury, Rye & Folkestone.

Amazing Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a wonderful week in this apartment. The whole flat was very clean throughout and decorated very tastefully. All the furniture was of a very high quality and looked almost new. The kitchen was well equiped with everything you could possibly want including a nice big fridge freezer. The view from the balcony in the living room was just stunning. Although on the second floor this wasn't a problem as there is a good lift almost next to the front door of the flat. The road outside was very quiet and there was no noise from any neighbours either. Parking was very good in a private, secure area at the back of the flat.

Joanna made us feel very welcome leaving flowers on the table and a very nice selection of goodies.

This was our first visit to Kent but we would love to return as there were lots of places and attractions we didn't manage to visit. The places we did enjoy were Hever Castle, Bodiam Castle, Southforeland Lighthouse, Karting at Lydd,Kent and East Sussex Railway, Sandwich River Bus to see the seals, Brockhill Country Park (very close by car) , Dungeness and we also went to France for the day (we have never been via the channel tunnel before but would go again as it was very quick and easy)

I would recommend this flat to anyone, young and old alike will love it.

Thank you for a very enjoyable, stress free holiday.

Sea view

  • 5 of 5

Home from home comfort - probably the best equipped holiday rental ever - we would have happily moved in permanently. We are originally from Kent and were actually using this as a base to visit old friends and to take a trip down memory lane. There is lots to do in the area and we would thoroughly recommend this rental.

Seafront flat in Hythe

  • 5 of 5

Modern, clean, comfortable and very well-equipped. Sea views, quiet neighbours, and the surroundings streets were quiet too, in spite of being right on the sea front. Very useful to have our own parking space. The owner was very helpful and friendly. Hythe is an attractive town with an interesting high street, handy supermarkets, some good restaurants, and a lovely older area near the church, with great views. Interesting history, with good walks along the coast, by the canal, and in Romney Marsh. There are local buses to Dover, Canterbury etc, trains from Sandling station, and the light railway makes several stops en route to Dungeness.
