2 ensuite double bedroom seaside cottage with sea views
I discovered Walmer and Deal by chance three years ago and made the decision to move here there and then. I fell in love with everything the area has on offer and really appreciate the unspoilt architecture and history everywhere. I've been renovating and renting property for over 25 years and enjoyed renovating Sea Breeze from the shingle up to the roof. Unfortunately nearly everything in the cottage is new bar the four walls, previously a fishmongers for many years I was able to reclaim the original fishmongers marble slab and utilised it as the kitchen island for housing the induction hob.
Why Marie chose Deal
I love a challenge and this cottage certainly had that. The lounge was only 8ft 8in wide and the ceilings were exceptionally low, the staircase was more like a ladder! It was a cottage that need some TLC but ultimately I bought the cottage because of the sea view as its directly opposite the sea with Wonderful walks, Walmer green and Georgian Deal is a short stroll away.
What makes this Cottage unique
Two large double bedrooms both ensuite with sea views. Lovely sun trap courtyard garden. Direct sea views and the beach and Green directly opposite the cottage.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Wonderful holiday! Can't wait to go back again!! Fell in love with this cottage & Kent!!
Where do I start?
The cottage is gorgeous, with a lovely feel. Cream tea on arrival, which was very appreciated after a longer journey than anticipated!
Comfy sofa, comfy beds, well stocked kitchen and bathroom (olive oil, salt and vinegar, tea, coffee, sugar, herbs, herbal teas etc (in the kitchen) Shampoos, conditioners, liquid hand soap, sun cream, hand cream etc (in the bathroom) Plenty of cleaning products etc It really did have a feeling of 'Home, Away'!
Parking was interesting at some times of the day. We're used to off road parking at home so our car rarely spend the night in the same place. However, we were always able to see the car from the property. The hot & sunny weather will have added to cars parked nearby also for those using the nearby paddling pool.
While we didn't set out to have a 'walking week', when looking at the statistics on my fitness tracker, from the Sunday to the Friday, our 6 full days, I had walked 26.55 miles and climbed 103 flights of stairs! No wonder my legs felt like lead at times!
Having never visited Kent before, we stayed fairly localish.
Sunday morning - Walk into Deal, mooch around the shops, bought something to eat & sat on the sea front to eat that. Then over to Dover Castle as we have English Hertitage membership (Free with Tesco clubcard points) where we spend the afternoon wandering around there & watching the Clash of the Romans reenactment. Fish & chips for tea!
Monday - once we were all up we drove over to Canterbury & used the park & ride and had a mooch around there with lunch in one of the many places to eat!
Tuesday, drove over to Whitstable where we spend time looking around the harbour, shops, found a nice place to eat... Felt very chilled...
Wednesday, Sandwich in the late morning for a little look. Half day closing I think on a Wednesday. Picked up some different tourist information leaflets to leave with Sea Breeze for future guests. Ate in the french cafe. Went to Westwood cross where 12 year old daughter watched a film with my friends daughter, husband and 17 year old watched Toy Story 4 & I had a wonderful catch up with my friend! Went home & had a lovely Indian takeaway for tea!
Thursday morning, up at 5.30 to go for a walk to see the sunrise! (Do This!!) Then Dover castle early to go in the wartime tunnels. Walmer Castle on the way back home.
Friday, Battle of Britain memorial & museum. Deal for lunch, Deal pier then Deal castle.
Saturday, back home again x
Beautiful property, great location, kind and helpful host!
We loved our week at Seabreeze. Everything was as described and the property was beautifully clean and nicely decorated with everything we needed for our stay.
The kitchen was well equipped with french doors onto a lovely sun-trap back yard, where we spent much our of our time!
Marie was the perfect host - communicative before, during and after and quick to help with the couple of questions we had.
The location was ideal - not right in the middle of Deal, so parking was easy, yet with shops, restaurants and bars on our doorstep and within 10 mins walk of Deal’s main town centre.
100% recommended for a comfortable, relaxed seaside stay!
Thank you Jen for a wonderful review, I’m delighted you enjoyed your stay no doubt it was even better as the weather was kind. It was my pleasure hosting your family and I do hope that they return again soon. Kind regards Marie
Charming and well-equipped cottage
We booked this cottage over Christmas, as a getaway for five days. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived, and the kitchen was excellently equipped for those of us who like to cook. I fell in love with the large fridge/freezer! Beds were comfortable and bathroom and shower room very nicely designed. Parking - which is sometimes an issue in Deal - was not a problem.
I’m so delighted you enjoyed your Christmas stay Antony and found the kitchen and equipment suitable for preparing Christmas dinner! It was a pleasure having you as guests and I hope you will return soon. Kind regards. Marie
Sea Breeze is a lovely getaway home, in a very convenient location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and Marie was a marvellous host.
Marie even knitted our daughter her own pair of gloves, after she'd commented on how much she liked Marie's own pair!
It was my pleasure hosting such a delightful family and I needed very little excuse to pick up my crochet hook to delight a very lovely little girl. I hope you return to Deal again soon. Marie
Perfect location. Cream tea was a lovely touch. Will come back again.
Thank you for your lovely review, I’m just sorry that I wasn’t there to welcome you in person but am delighted you enjoyed our stay at Sea Breeze and I would love to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regard Marie
Very well equipped and appointed cottage in a great location.
We had a lovely 4 night stay in such a well equipped cottage - the owner had thought of everything, even dog treats and a cream tea on arrival!
Thank you for your lovely review. I love hosting guest in the cottage and am always delighted that they not only enjoy their stay but love the area too. I hope you return to Deal soon.
