About Mrs Kirstey Beckett

Mum of two. Joseph and Lilly and wife to Jim. We love Westgate and my husband has been going there since he was a child. It seemed inevitable that we would buy here one day! Lovely beaches. The best sunset this side of the Caribbean.

Mrs Kirstey Beckett purchased this house in 2007

Why Mrs Kirstey Beckett chose Kent

Close to the beach and all amenities. Modern, so less work for us. Lovely through lounge so all the family can be together. Safe gardens for the children.

What makes this house unique

Lots of children's things to play with. Buckets, spades, boards!

Great home away from home, ideal for small families

  • 4 of 5

Property was a good size, although compact we managed 5 adults although a bit of a push. Ideally suited for a small family with children.

Kirstey was helpful and answered queries before the holiday promptly. Plus lots of reading material to browse if you need ideas on what to do during your stay.

2 minute walk from the beach and a pub, and a 5 minute drive from a supermarket it's location was really convenient to get around.

Would have been 5* if the water pressure in the shower was a bit more powerful but that is more personal preference rather than an actual issue.

For the price, location and general presentation I would definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: HI there Many thanks for your lovely review. I totally take onboard the comments about the shower. We are having a new bathroom fitter with new more powerful shower over the winter months as I realise that the pressure is not great. Hope you will return to test it out! Kind regards

Excellent house, excellent location, extraordinary hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Station Street Apartment when visiting Ashbourne for a wedding. We were traveling as a family, two children 3 & 5. The owners went above and beyond the call of duty to make us feel welcome and the children comfortable. They allowed us to use their garden (behind the property) to relax and unwind with the children after our journey. The apartment itself has everything you could need, and is larger than the pictures suggest. We thought it might be tight for the 4 of us, but there was more than enough room. The WC is separate from the shower room, which is handy when a family is sharing. The show is divine, the bed is far exceeding a hotel standard bed, the Wifi was great. Notably the host was welcoming to kids, who we had sleep on the sofas. The even helped me move breakables around the flat upon our arrival, so the kids were tempted by the vases with flowers etc. It is also a very short walk from the tunnels in Ashbourne which are a nice family activity.

A very stress free relaxing break.

  • 5 of 5

Seagull House has been well thought out and provides the traveller with everything neccessary for an easy holiday. We were delighted with the property, and the children were reluctant to leave at the end of the week. Especially pleased with the firm mattress for a good nights sleep, after the bracing sea air which knocked us out every day. Plenty of places to visit even off season. Definately planning a return visit. Thank you Seagull House!

Visit was too short!! Awesome place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Sea Gull house in Westgate. My four kids loved it. We went at the end of November and the weather was very chilly, but we still enjoyed our stay in Westgate. The house was perfectly supplied with everything you could possibly need. The kids loved playing with the toys. Sleeping was very comfortable for the 6 of us. We walked through the town and on the beach. I can imagine it is a perfect vacation spot during the summer months. We definitely would like to return and rent this property again. Thanks again to the owner!

Ideal for all the family

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the end of last August was memorable for all the right reasons. My children (4 & 6) still talk about 'Seagull house'. It is a modern house and was clean, comfortable, quiet, with well maintained gardens and fully equipped for a family seaside holiday including paraphenalia for the beach such as windbreaks, chairs, beach toys. As we have a small car it was great travelling light. There were even games & toys in the house for kids too! It was close to walk to the beach & we could easily pop back for something we forgot, food supplies and lug stuff down there. My elderly Mum who has mobility difficulties found access to the beach and to the nearby shops easy. She also found the stairs in the house easy to manage, the bed comfortable even with her arthritic back and could get in and out of the bath with minimal assistance using the over the bath shower. The kids had a great time at the beach which is Blue Flag, lovely and sandy with rockpools too. Worth knowing the tide tables to plan your day and beach visits as the tide can come right in. During the week there were no more than 15 families there even though it was still school summer holidays. On the one rainy day we went to the cinema in town. We also drove to Reculver and went kite flying. Westgate is small and has the essentials but not so much that the kids keep demanding lots of spending money! Ideal for a traditional family beach holiday.

Very Good accommodation and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property in Westgate at the end of February and can say that it ticked all the boxes. The house was clean and tidy and all the facilities a family requires in a modern house.

The location is superb, literally 30 seconds walk to the beach and close to Margate.

Westgate itself has loads of facilities, small supermarket, newsagents, chemist, post office, train station, we even took advantage of the family friday ticket at the cinema just a few minutes walk from the house.

All in all, an excellent break with super facilities in and around Westgate.
