About Melinda Barry
I love to escape the bustle of everyday life and spend time by the sea. I live just a few miles from Beach Retreat so I'm always on hand to offer my guests any assistance they need or provide local information! For direct bookings please email me, email@example.com.
Melinda Barry purchased this Chalet in 2010
Why Melinda Barry chose Canterbury
Beach Retreat is my dream house by the sea which I bought a few years ago. It's my pleasure to make it available to my guests, many of them regulars, who love this spot as much as I do. All rental income has been put into improving the property, most recently with a beautiful new kitchen area.
What makes this Chalet unique
Beach Retreat is remote and peaceful, yet not isolated. Convenient shops in the village of Seasalter are within walking distance; Whitstable with its working harbour, boutique shops and restaurants is 5 minutes drive, or a pleasant 45 minute walk around the bay. Birdwatchers need hardly leave the house, just wait for the seabirds to arrive at low tide! But Swale Nature Reserve is just down the beach, and Oare Marshes Reserve, with trails and hides for birdwatchers, is a few miles away near Faversham. For a unique local gourmet experience, try The Sportsman down the road - but you will need to book in advance!

Tranquil, calm and an amazing sunset
The beach retreat had everything we needed, fully stocked even with tea, coffee and sugar.
My daughter loved to get outside in her wellies on the beach looking for shells.
It was so fantastic to be this close to the beach. My wife and I sat there each evening staring out to the ocean, taking in the fantastic sunset.
We've never felt so relaxed, even after an hours walk into Whitstable along the beach, where we had to hide from a down pour at one point.
This property and location is lovely we will be back.
Beach Retreat Seasalter
Peaceful, relaxing stay in delightful property by the sea. Highly recommended.
Melinda was a great host, responded really quickly to any questions and added lots of thoughtful touches to her rental.
It was a perfect place to get away from it all, be close to nature on land and water, many lovely walks/ bike rides but also a great town centre nearby with as many eateries you could wish for!
Just what we needed thanks Melinda😊
The Beach Retreat was just great, everything we needed, perfect location, views amazing, so quiet, would visit again.

Peaceful area. Very nice to get away.
