A get away by the sea

Bedrooms 1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

newly renovated perfectly formed little bit of luxury 2 mins from the seafront

Booking is for two nights minimum but do ask if I'm not booked it's possible could do just one.

Tankerton is a hidden gem, open and spacious with easy parking and a large green expanse, 'The slopes', where you get the greatest views of the seafront. Jojo's an award winning tapas restaurant is located on the slopes with sea views, a great place for lunch or dinner.

Passengers Little House is a one bedroom self contained house located on the side of our own. There is the option of a pull down sofa bed. The living area is a well thought out double height space with hanging pendant lights, comfortable seating and a wall mounted remote controlled T.V with the option of Netflicks. A kitchenette which will meet all your needs, with the very important cafeteria, toaster, good size fridge and freezer, microwave and plug in hob. The bathroom is of a high spec, you are met with a glass and tiled walk in shower a well placed vintage cabinet holding the sink above which you will find a touch free light sensor on the mirror for added luxury. A small flight of stairs leads to the bedroom mezzanine area, this is carpeted for a luxurious and cosy feel, here you will find a king size bed which all praise for being super comfortable, I am always being asked where I brought it from, I take pride and care with ironed bedding and bath and hand towels. This is an uncluttered calm space with a bespoke cloths hanger, I have put some romantic discrete lights for soft lighting. Upstairs as with downstairs you will find usb direct plugins. We are available if you need us or any info about the area we are very happy to help, often tho only see guests arrive or leave, it is easy to find your feet and then make the most of your stay .

I have lived here for 8 years, moving from London and have never been disappointed at the view from the slopes all weathers and seasons its a very special arena to see so far out to sea and so much sky above.

This is a sea front without crowds often you can spend the day with what seems like your own private piece of beach in-between the groynes that go out to sea at regular intervals.

No need to miss out on any of the hustle and bustle of Whitstable life it is a 15 minute walk along the front where the crowds await. Whitstable is packed with amazing restaurants and independent boutiques along side some more obscure spaces and outlets.

I own a vintage and retro ladies clothes shop on the beach at Keams yard opening April - September only situated in- between Keams yard Gallery and Kent and London hand made furniture store. A short distance from Pearsons pub and restaurant and the famous Native Oyster Restaurant, where you can buy the world famous whitstable oysters.

The night life is great you can choose how much of it you would like to soak up there are always live bands in many of the local pubs, Whitstable is well known and respected for its live music. It's at this point when I am always happy to be living in Tankerton returning to the quite and calmness for sleep.

I would post that this destination is a great all rounder there are many other great places to visit with easy access from here by car or train the station is only a short walk away.

The house is very well placed for all your needs and great access at the end of the road is Tankerton high street where you will find a mini Tesco's, very handy, many take aways, a micro brewery pub The Tankerton Arms , The Wine shop\bar, restaurants and more. The bus stop is also very conveniently placed at the end of the road you can hop on a bus either to come home or go out for the evening in Whitstable or Canterbury, Whitstable being only 5 minutes away.

About Amanda

Alex and I or both have a degree in Fine Art and I an M.A from the Royal college of Art, we both have creative jobs which we juggle and our three children. We moved from Brick lane in East London. We love the house and location its perfect for access and calm family life.

Why Amanda chose Canterbury

We managed to get a largish house and with a big renovation we built Passengers little house on the side. It took us a long time to realise the design for a unique, open and airy space, packed with character and comfort.

What makes this house unique

A lovely well designed high spec space close to a very special seafront where you just will not experience the kind of crowds you might elsewhere.

This is a well appointed small but perfectly formed little house. It is a very safe environment, although only a walk away from the hub, its quieter with few passers by. We are next door and on hand to assist if needed. As well as a couples get away (recently had honeymooners,) it's also great for single ladies and those wanting a little break, mum and daughter, seems popular or friends sharing. It's a safe and quite location. If you need us we are here otherwise we do not disturb our guests.

Terrific Tankerton

  • 5 of 5

We spent three wonderful days in this delightful property which was beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. The welcome we received from Amanda set the tone for the whole holiday. We left the car and travelled into Whitstable by bus each day and enjoyed it's hustle and bustle but it was so nice to return to the serenity of Passengers' Little House.

Thank you Amanda for your warm welcome and we look forward to seeing you again.

Beautiful and bijou place for 2

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed outer 2 night stay here, it was clean, cosy, airy and beautifully appointed. It was so handy for walking or getting the bus into Whitstable and the local micro pub was a great find! Tankerton is wonderfully peaceful and quiet yet lovely bustly Whitstable is a 20 minutes stroll along the beach path. Host Amanda was so kind and helpful with local information little extras she left in Passenger’s Little House for us were very thoughtless. Highly recommend and we will definitely return!
