Listen to the Sound of the Sea - Star of the Sea



Updated: 12-Oct-2016
Amazing building sitting on the beachfront with 5 luxury apartments

You are moments away from the beach in the well-apppointed, beautiful building. Come out of your apartment door, head out of the building, literally a few steps and you are on the beach. Each apartment has sea views, beautifully furnished and huge windows allowing the daylight in to your apartment.

The building is grand and quite imposing on the seafront, and a short stroll from the harbour. Taking in the boats in the glorious marina whilst having your lunch or a morning coffee is a short stroll away from Granville Marina.

Ramsgate is gorgeous seaside town with the only Royal Harbour in the UK, a high speed train from London St Pancreas (1hr 17mins) and an international airport which connects you with Schipol, Holland. You will find the most amazing beach walks, lined with white cliffs and south facing. Foodies will love the range of eateries offered in both Ramsgate, Broadstairs and Margate. The Old Town in Margate offers great shopping for vintage lovers and the new Turner Gallery is a haven for lovers of art and culture. If you are travelling with children, a trip to this area is not complete without seeing the Museum in Quex Park.

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

It was everything we expected. The apartment was spacious and well decorated. Beds were comfy; equipment adequate. Best of all was the proximity of the sea so we really could listen to the waves. Great for getting to sleep. We loved our stay there and will probably return.

Great location, right on the beach and a short walk from the harbour.

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in Jacob's Ladder property and the view and accommodation was great. Rooms all have amazing sea views and very spacious for families. Our children loved the space and made a den in the walk in wardrobe that was huge.

Would recommend for a short family seaside break.

Can't fault the property. Clean, modern, great facilities and location.. Fantastic base for our family mini break.. My only criticism would be that no one replied to my emails via the home and away app about a late check out and they left a minimal amount of toilet roll which was a bit annoying.. It barely got us through to Saturday evening. But apart from those two small things our stay was amazing and I think my sister is looking to book the same apartment for some time in Easter as I have raved about it to her..

Thank you for a wonderful stay xxx

Fabulous apartment in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for an end of year break with friends. We were all very impressed by the location - a stone's throw from the sea with open views along the coast. The property is a gorgeous period building that sits in a quiet spot on the Marina, great for walks or watching the world go by from the comfort of the sofa.

Also impressed by the quality of furnishings, fittings and decor - all new and modern, with all the home comforts you need - huge TV, wifi, dishwasher, washing machine, decent oven and microwave, kitchen equipment and generous size mugs/bowls. Dishwasher and washing machine tabs, soap, shampoo and towels all provided. The cleanliness is excellent and everything shines.

Beds very comfortable and lovely clean linen, plus soft towels. Slept well and could not hear other guests in the building - solid walls! And despite very windy, wet and stormy weather on new year's day, we felt safe and cosy although only metres away from the sea wall.

Would highly recommend this apartment/property to anyone staying in Ramsgate. Convenient for the town, shops, bars and restaurants. And for those without a car, the Loop bus is just a short walk away - takes you to the rail station, Westwood Cross, Broadstairs and Margate. And if you like a good walk, we recommend a leisurely stroll to Broadstairs along the beach (about an hour) with stunning views.

Owner, Ben, a good communicator and quick to respond to queries. We will definitely be headed back to Ramsgate and this property again.

The building's apartment are arranged such that most parties' accommodation requirements can be met. The apartments are spacious, have great views out to sea and have all of the modcons you and your party will need.

This beautiful property is situated on Ramsgate Sands, just steps from the beach, this really is a one off location. With the doors open you can listen to the sound of the sea, proven to help you relax and even sleep better!

Thanet is renowned for the quality of its beaches, and Ramsgate has some of the best in the area. Ramsgate Main Sands, situated a stone’s throw from the Royal Harbour, has been awarded a Blue Flag – a tribute to the cleanliness of its water, its safety record and its range of facilities. Hire out a deckchair and dig your toes into the soft sand.

On the seafront you will find Ramsgate Marina and the Royal Harbour. The area, surrounded by stunning Georgian and Victorian architecture, is a hive of activity.

After all this activity, sit back and embrace Ramsgate’s café culture. Relax in one of the sea-facing cafés or restaurants, watching the boats come and go in the marina and admiring the skies that J.M.W Turner described as the loveliest in all of Europe.

Golf: Royal St. George’s:

Royal St. George’s is, put simply, one of the best golf courses in the world. On Thursday 14 July 2011, the course will host the fourteenth Open Championship of its illustrious history. If you are after accommodation for the Open, our holiday lets are just a short, scenic drive away.

Royal Cinque Ports:

Nearby Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club offers the ultimate test of links golf. It is notorious for its large sand dunes, 66 bunkers and forceful wind which will make the back nine a real test of character.


Historic Prince’s Golf Club completes the triumvirate. The more affordable option, it is always in pristine condition and teems with humps and bumps, thick rough and head-high bunkers.

From the Owner

The property benefits from being on the seafront and having amazing views from almost every room. This property has the added benefit of parking. There is a private car park available for the use of the guests and this is a major plus in a town where parking can be tricky.
