About the property

A Stunning Interior Designed House With Fabulous Sea Views.

A 5 bed 'upside-down' house with a light and airy open plan living/dining/kitchen on the top floor with gorgeous direct sea views and a lovely balcony from which to soak it all up.

The kitchen area has Corian work surfaces in a pale aqua shade with matching tiled splashback. It is very well equipped and it is a lovely space in which to cook while not feeling cut off from the party! We like to sit at the island unit with drinks and nibbles and then move on to the dining table for dinner.

The living area has a Conran sofa and arm chair and the kitchen chairs can also be used for extra seating.

The first floor has three double bedrooms. The master bedroom has lovely sea views and is a very good size. Bedroom 2 looks over the garden and is also a very good size. This has two singles that can be made up as a double if preferred. The third bedroom is smaller but still has a double bed. There is a family bathroom on this floor that has polished porcelain tiles and a good shower with screen over the bath.

The ground floor provides flexible accommodation as it provides two further receptions that can be used as extra living space or if needed they can also be used as two double bedrooms.

There is also a separate toilet and shower room on this floor. French windows lead on to the private and sunny mature garden which has a stylish decked area for dining or lounging and a kids play area on the lawn.

It is a very child-friendly property with a high chair, a travel cot, toys, kids dvds and books available on request.

There is off street parking for one car to the rear of the property and no parking restrictions on the street at the front and behind the property, so it always easy to find an additional space near the house.

The house is new to the holiday letting market (first bookings in March 2014) which is why we have no reviews as yet. It has been re-decorated over the past 12 months so it will be very clean and fresh for your stay.

About Nick Austin

This has been our very happy home for the past 6 years but we have decided to try living in Spain for a couple of years so we thought we'd let it out for holidays so we can still use it ourselves when back in the UK.

Nick Austin purchased this house in 2007

Why Nick Austin chose Kent

We moved to Broadstairs from London because we fell in love with it and we still do. It has everything you could want in a British seaside town an The Sunday Times agrees as it recently voted it the BEST PLACE TO LIVE BY THE SEA! The views are stunning and on a sunny day the open plan living area is flooded with light. The mirrored units in the kitchen as well as two huge mirrors mean that the sea view is reflected and expanded to create a real WOW factor! The pale aqua worktops and tiles in the kitchen and the turquoise sofa really add to the effect. The garden is a peaceful haven and all the bedrooms are a good size and stylishly decorated.

What makes this house unique

The sea views, the proximity to the beach and the town and the stylish décor all make this the perfect property for a stay cation in Broadstairs.

Lovely property for 9 adults

  • 5 of 5

We were a family party. The room at the top had brilliant views and was a good size to accommodate a lot of tall people. We decided to take our own folding table to add to the dining table so we had plenty of room to eat in comfort. The house was warm and well equipped. Broadstairs is a pretty town and we were blessed with good weather and walked to Margate in one direction and to Ramsgate in the other. A good weekend.

Great base for exploring Kent

  • 5 of 5

A group of six university students and three professors stayed here in January. It was a great base for exploring the area -- the rooms were great, parking was easily had on the street in front of the house, and the top-floor kitchen and dining area had great views of the sea! Stores and pubs are conveniently nearby. Stairs are steep and narrow, so not recommended for the mobility-impaired, but everything else was perfect!!

Nice spacious property in good location

  • 4 of 5

The outside of the property is a bit of a let down. However the inside was lovely and very spacious with more than enough room for our party of 5 adults and 5 children. The upstairs lounge area was great and the kids loved all the games that were stocked in the cupboard near the window. The housekeeper was lovely and responded quickly to any queries/issues that we had. The only issue I would say is that the downstairs area is very cold and when you put the heating on, it obviously rises up to the top levels which get very cosy, but this still leaves the ground floor chilly. Overall, though, everyone had a great time.

Good location

  • 4 of 5

Very well equipped property - especially in the kitchen. My granddaughters loved all of the toys, games and also the climbing frame in the garden and we all loved the sea view which is worth climbing the stairs for - it is better than it looks in the photos. Irritations were minor - balcony is locked as it is unsafe, some light bulbs had gone and one of the bedrooms was dusty. But, this is nit-picking as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is surprisingly spacious and light and the location is very good - close to a great beach and easy to walk to Broadstairs and short drive to Margate. Really enjoyed the Turner Gallery, the Shell Grotto and ice cream at Morellis. Also recommend the Greedy Cow in Old Town in Margate for lunch. Would definitely recommend a stay at this property.

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

I initially gave a bad review about this property but the owner resolved all the problems very effectively and to our satisfaction. I would therefore request that you destroy the initial negative report. I did make a second report along similar lines to this one but it may not have come through

Stone Bay House boasts stunning sea views and is a very short stroll down to the gorgeous Stone Bay (there are cute steps leading directly to the beach only 100 metres away). It is only 1 mile to the beautiful Joss Bay which is a surfers paradise and only a short distance more to Kingsgate Bay and Botany Bay.

Broadstairs is the quintessential British seaside town: a beautiful half moon bay nestling below chalk cliffs; a Victorian promenade with a well-used bandstand; classic crazy golf alongside Morelli's ice-cream parlour that is over 100 years old; and all of this overlooked by the landmark Bleak House of Dickens fame. What could be more perfect for an English seaside holiday? Top this off with the fact that the town is now a gourmet's paradise with fabulous restaurants, bars and real ale micro pubs and you may never want to leave!

Margate is a short drive away or one stop on the frequent train. Here you will find a world class art gallery, The Turner Contemporary, another fabulous beach and even more amazing restaurants, bars ultra-cool retro shops; a vintage lovers paradise!

A short hop in the other direction lies Ramsgate which boasts the stunning Royal Harbour. Again, this is lined with trendy bars and cafes to laze away a sunny afternoon or evening.
