About the Owner
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 lovely fortnight by the sea!
A very comfortable and well-equipped flat in an ideal location by the sea with lovely walks in both directions and the town just a nice 20 minute stroll along the front. We visited 3 castles during our stay - Deal and Walmer (a must) on foot and Dover by car. At Dover we also enjoyed a beautiful walk along the cliffs from the White Cliff Visitor Centre (Nat Trust) along to the South Foreland Lighthouse. Canterbury was also easily accessed via a short drive and a Park & Ride into the city with a visit to the marvellous Cathedral which was well worth a visit. We were fortunate to enjoy glorious weather for most of the fortnight which helped and overall we had a really enjoyable stay in an excellent flat.
Beautifull appartment very close to the sea
We had a wonderfull stay in this appartment.
The appartment had everything we needed and the beds were perfect.
The kids loved the sea that's very close.

Apartment in Walmer Kent
Wonderful place to stay. Clean, very quiet. Walmer and the surrounding areas are all beautiful with lots to see. The apartment was in a lovely area just back from the sea. It is beautifully furnished and covers all your needs. Highly recommendable
Superb !!! Lovely accommodation in beautiful location
Just spent the weekend at Beach Court as a place to stay for my daughter's wedding nearby. The area that the property is located in, is lovely. We were fortunate to have the first decent weather of the summer, and it made our stay feel like a proper holiday, almost Mediterranean in some ways
The property served our needs well, with lots of room and all the facilities we needed, plus lots more. Parking was very convenient which was great. This is a very quiet peaceful and pleasant residential area, no noise from anyone. You can walk out of the front door, around to the front of this large imposing house, and step onto the beach within a minute. This is highly recommended when you wake up, as all you will find are a handful of fishermen and a few joggers and dog walkers, otherwise, miles of open sea and sky. It really is something special. We didn't have a chance to explore Deal, due the the wedding, but the fish and chip shop along the seafront road 1/2 mile from the house was very good, with very friendly welcome. We have also tried the Zeatland Arms which is a lovely pub on the beach further down the coast heading away from Deal.
Fav bits about the flat... location, space, kitchen, oak flooring, stylish lounge furniture (+ great artwork), peace and quiet.
Les fav bits... only remotely negative point...overly complicated operation of microwave/grill/oven combination.
Thank you to Rob the owner, and the lovely cleaning team who arrived and were very sweet as we were frantically trying to vacate on time (we may have over run by a few mins , on our already generously extended checkout ;-)
...we wish we were still there!
