The place was good; information was provided, booking was so easy to follow and clear which makes life easier.. The home was home away from home.

On arrival there was dog mess left outside - the outside table was filthy - The bin in the kitchen stunk & we had to wash it out - the frying pan was filthy and unusable- We had to clean out tumble drier as fluff had been left in the filter - with all the rules it felt as though we were on trial - you expected us not to let the dogs upstairs, but there was no stair gate - loose cold water tap in kitchen which kept falling off.. Would definitely not go to a place where they charge £150 up front again as we were frightened to move because of all the rules It was also noticed that the visitors book had a section yorn out, which seemed to suggest that a bad report had been left and the wners chose to remove it

My wife and I spent a very pleasant week at the Beach Retreat with our daughter and her other half plus toddler.. The letting is well equipped, decorated and beautifully clean accomodation in a very convenient position for Minnis Bay and the rest of Thanet's coastline. All in all a home from home. I would unreservedly recommend it to anybody seeking a traditional seaside holiday or restful break.

A really nice house in a lovely location, a stones throw from the beach.. Excellent facilities locally including shop, pub etc. House is comfortable and nicely furnished. We had a couple of very minor issues on arrival and Verity, the owner, was extremely helpful. As has been mentioned previously the curtains could do with attention / replacing but a relatively minor issue on the scheme of things. Nice neighbours and a nice feel to the area generally. Some lovely coastal walks and Birchington is a lovely village. Very pleased with our stay overall.

This is the second year we have stayed in this home, ( we do see it as a Home from Home) and we have already booked for next year.. We find this home has everything you could possibly need for a family with children & dogs. The location of the home is within 3-4 minutes to the sea front, so no need to take the car- there is a flat walk for those with mobility problems (which I have) great areas for the dogs and children to play. There is also a child’s play area nearby. A few minutes walk will take you to The Minnis Bay Bar, where you can get a lovely meal and it’s dog friendly. Or next door to the Bar is the most Dog Friendly Cafe I have ever been in, in fact when we went, there were more dogs than people! If you are feeling energetic behind the Bar is a Bike Hire - great for all the family to go and explore. For us it is the most perfect Home from Home in a Great Location.

This is the 2nd stay we have had in this house and have just booked our next year stay.. For us having such a large family who visit us while we are there from a large kitchen dining table which seats 8 to an endless supply of crockery! The house is, for us, in the perfect place, a few minutes walk to the beach then an endless flat walk along the front / beach absolutely perfect for children & dogs. There are 2 Refreshment places along the front within 5 minutes walk or 2 minutes drive by car with paid parking behind the establishments by the bike hire. The Minnis Bay Bar is a the perfect place for either Lunch / Dinner / drink . Next door is the most dog friendly place I have ever visited- you can get anything from a sandwich to a 3 course meal with wine - we visited 3 times over our 2 week stay and once there were more dogs than people - great for all you Dog lovers out there. To us the perfect Beach Retreat.

Curtains in the lounge are well past their 'sell by date' do not meet properly and let the overall comfort down

It would have helped if the holding fee was mentioned to me at the time of booking rather than me finding out later from the property owner.. Making it easier for all people is very important to avoid surprises. A few places to visit near the area could also help especially for those with less IT knowledge. Lovely place otherwise. I like the fact that the property owner in the welcome pack mentioned not to part below the tree to avoids birds surprise, that was good.

We booked The Beach Retreat so we could host a Family & Friends Reunion as we now live on the Isle of Wight.. We were really pleased at the amount of crockery, cutlery & serving plates (much better than the plastic ones we brought with us) that were there. We hosted a group of 8 and a group of 12 for lunch plus 2 evening get together and there was plenty of room for everyone. Everything has been thought of for a perfect family holiday. The beds were very comfortable and very welcome after our busy days and nights. The area is great for dog walking and the beach is only a few minutes walk from the house. We went to “The Minnis Bay” Bar only 5 mins walk along the beach, quite a few times forlunch and an evening meal - as long as you sit in the Bar area your 4 legged friends can join you ...plus they are treated to dog treats and a bowl of water. We enjoyed the cottage so much we have already booked for next year.

Just arrived home from a weeks Christmas break at the Beach Retreat and can honestly say that we didn’t want our holiday to end.. The house itself is very well equipped and the bedding is to die for! It has such a feel of home and is a great family house - the kids will love the array of games and the dog will love the garden. It is a stones throw from a glorious beach, which provides wonderful walks in either direction and the dog friendly Minnis Brassiere is a must - very welcoming with great food. With Birchington’s quaint high street just 5 minutes down the road and a convenience store on your doorstep what more could you ask for? We will definitely be back!

The beach retreat has everything you need for a perfect family holiday.. A lot of small details had been thought of and the house was perfectly equipped. The house has a great location as the beach is just at the end of the road. The road is quiet so it was easy to get a good nights sleep! The house had a lovely feel to it, all mod cons yet traditional also. A very enjoyable stay-thankyou!

This house was an excellent base for a three generation family break. The provision of toys and games was greatly appreciated. The house was well equipped and furnished in a practical way that was easy to use and keep clean. The location was good, near the beach and local shopping. Would like to return next year.
