About Rob Day

We have always dreamed of owning a place by the sea in this part of Kent, since visiting from London when we were kids.

We wanted to find somewhere by the sea, away from crowds and traffic, but without sacrificing creature comforts. We love the peace, space and the amazing light on the beach outside but also the award-winning independent shops and restaurants in and around Deal.

We spend as much time as possible at the property but will always do our best to accommodate guest bookings and do not "black out" any dates. We hope you love it here as much as we do!

Rob Day purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Rob Day chose Kent

We think Deal and Walmer offer the perfect combination of traditional British seaside atmosphere, unspoilt and historic architecture, and miles of clean and often deserted beaches. Walmer is the quiet and leafy end of town with an incredible sense of peace and space on the beach, which is often completely empty even in August.

Our dog appreciates the canine company to be found out walking along the coast path.

We love to cook and eat out: there is a market, superb independent butchers and fishmongers, delicatessen, independent wine merchants and a large Sainsburys all close by. At least five chippies, countless cafes, and a long list of quality independent pubs and restaurants for all budgets.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is roomy and spacious. Parking is free and easy even in high season.

Everything is within walking distance - whether you want to visit the castles, eat out, buy supplies or head up the cliffs towards Dover.

A little bit too much style over substance

  • 3 of 5

On first glance the flat had a wow factor with modern décor and funky light fittings......however...toilet leaked(rectified by the day before we left)both toilet seats loose and slid disconcertingly when used ,bedroom blind broken, 2 lights not working.,unpainted plaster after renovations in 2nd bedroom and lounge décor a bit shabby. chose this flat due to disabled mother however there are 3 steps on path before front door that wasn't pointed out.

Good location but needs a little tlc to bring it up to standard.

Owner's Response: Dear Susan, We are glad that you appreciated the style and location of the apartment, but really sorry that you weren't happy with some aspects of your stay. As soon as we were informed about the lightbulbs, the blind and the loo seat, we fixed them: we are sorry that these details were missed when we prepared the apartment for you. I would suggest that in future, if you need accommodation that is entirely step-free for your mother, you check with the property owner in advance. We would have explained that there are steps up from the street, if you had asked. We have had many guests over the past four years who use wheelchairs. They all found the apartment much more accessible than a typical period property. Of course everybody is different. It is important that you make your needs clear before you book.

Great flat, walk across street to beach

  • 5 of 5

A very nicely appointed flat, comfortable, and conveniently located. We didn't have a car, but that wasn't a problem because shopping and beach were easily reached by walking.

Very enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

I booked this apartment for my family as I already live in Deal, and it was perfect, my brother in- law is in a wheel chair but can walk a few steps so he could manage the couple of steps leading into the apartment as you would not be able to get a wheel chair up them, and then the inside of the apartment was all on one level so was ideal, my family thought it was lovely and comfortable and so close to the beach, overall we could not fault it we all had a brilliant family few days together (perfect)

Nice appartment, nice stay!

  • 4 of 5

We (5 adults) spent a week at this appartment, which fulfilled all our needs!

The appartment is spacious, the kitchen fully fitted, the bedrooms offer plenty of space, parking is very easy! We spent every day walking along the beach, which is just very relaxing.

Camilla and Rob were helpful in every way, thanks again! Just one piece of advice for advertising this place: There are three steps from the street to get to the entrance door which are fairly difficult to take if you are in a wheelchair. We managed fine after trying a couple of times what worked best but maybe it makes sense to make this clear in the description too.

Would I recommend this place? YES :-)

Lovely character property in beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely week at this apartment. We were very lucky with the weather, beautiful sunshine everyday and literally only a stones throw from the beach. Great location to explore surrounding area. Beds very comfy, apartment spacious plenty of room for myself, my mother and her dog Blue.
