Relaxing location for a stay by the sea

  • 4 of 5

Making the booking with Claire was easy and she was there to meet us on arrival. A convenient location on a little strip up the hill behind the sea. Good for us as we could easily walk from Whitstable station and didn't need a car. It was handy to have a bakers, good fish & chip shop and Tescos nearby and a range of takeaways and cafes if you don't feel like cooking. The flat is spacious and comfortable and has a nice garden. It's a bit of a pain to go up and down the stairs with plates etc to eat in the garden (as we did) but it's nice being up high and having sea views. Our son enjoyed the toys in the flat. We liked Tankerton-a lot more charming than Whitsatble. Next time I'll being our park run bar codes as we didn't know there was a run from our bit of the beach. Would be happy to have a Nespresso machine as local cafes don't open that early. Great place for a long weekend. Would be happy to go back.

Practically Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Marguerita is an excellent base for us to visit our Kent family. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable the flat is well equipped (I managed to put on a 3 course meal for 5!)

Claire was very efficient at sorting out a problem with the Wi-Fi and very flexible when we had to change dates at the last moment due to #Beastfromtheeast.

We visit the area a couple of times a year and this is now our go to accomodation

Cosy & in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a weekend in Whitstable and really enjoyed our stay at Marguerita. It's in Tankerton, which is approx 10 min walk into town, which you can do along the beach or the Marine Drive just around the corner. There's plenty of amenities in Tankerton to keep you going like Tesco express, a bakery & a nice wine shop. We had a great meal at Jo Jo's nearby with friends - they do tapas/sharing plates. The flat is bright and clean - we cooked a meal one night and we had everything we needed. Claire was helpful & friendly - she met us at the flat to let us in and gave us all of the necessary local advice. We were 5 - 3 adults, 2 kids and there was plenty of space. I can see that we might drop by again in the future (maybe leave the kids behind though) ;)

Lovely Stay in Whitstable

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my partner recently relocated down to Kent and were in need of a home for two months until we were able to move into our house. The apartment was perfect, location wise for us both but also the amenities in the local area and in the flat (we didnt need to worry about kitchen stuff etc)

We rang Claire (the owner) to request to book and she was lovely, really welcoming and was so flexible with us with the time we needed the flat which was a huge weight off our shoulders at a stressful time. The accommodation has a great location, right by the sea, plenty of places to park, clean, really spacious, huge bedrooms and living room and lovely for a long stay or even a weekend away. Would definitely recommend!!
