Nick:Sea View

This place is absolute perfection. The location is perfect - secluded towards the quieter end of town but close enough to all the fun stuff to do in Margate. Bedrooms are clean and nicely decorated. Most importantly the beds are very, very comfy. The living room is the perfect place to hang out - you can see the sea from the sofa! It also has every entertainment device you could ever want. (Netflix, Smart Tv, Bluetooth speakers) Archie is literally a perfect host; from beers in the fridge when we arrived to her driving to Halfords to pick us up some jump leads for the flat battery on our car - nothing is too much effort. If you are reading this to make up your mind whether or not you should book the answer is a resounding yes.

I want to move in! Margate was a great weekend escape - so much to see and do for all ages. Archie provided a binder full of local information and I could have busy there for weeks. The neighbours are lovely, the sea view from the living room is just divine - the beach is less than 50m from the front door. The flat is in a quiet cul-de-sac with no passing traffic - 3 mins walk from the station, and there is parking if you are driving. The flat itself is all brand spanking new, very clean and comfortable (I have asked for a link to wherever the pillows come from as they are super cosy). I slept like a log. The shower is good. Wifi and TV all work well although I was barely using either. Kitchen well equipped. Whilst you may spend a lot of time out on the beach, the flat has a great garden with hammock and a lot of comfy seating plus a BBQ. Archie's comms were great - she is very friendly and helped with every aspect of my stay. Quick to respond to messages and questions. I would highly recommend the Bus Cafe for breakfast - 2 mins walk, delicious food served in an old London bus. Whether you want a quiet weekend get away or a fun time with the family this is the place!

Miles & Sarah:Trinity Square

We booked Artists residency as a family of five, two adults and three children under the age of 10. The place was perfect for us. It's huge way bigger than we thought it would be, think because the ceilings are just so high! Loved the bold colours in the place, really cool interior designed, great attention to detail. You can tell that an artist owns the place. Really liked your art Archie :) The views of the sea from the living room and kitchen are just beautiful. We also got a sea view from the master bedroom when the neighbours opposite had opened their curtains! What a treat from our bed, we didn't want to get out, so comfy too. The kids totally adored the mezzanine bedroom! It's such a cool space for a gang of kids and even though they were up most night nattering and playing on their Ipads we couldn't hear them at all. Really loved having our own ensuite bathroom. The family bathroom was perfect for the kids, lots of space and loads of towels. Really liked the electric fire, nice atmospheric effect at night. The kids liked the remote controlled candles in the lanterns too. Really well-equipped kitchen, not that we did that much cooking because we treated ourselves and ate out a lot :) The location is great too. Parking was easy right outside. A little stroll down into Old Town, really close to the beach, we went to Walpole Bay and also to Margate Main beach. Kids loved Melt ice cream place, we went every day. Highly recommend! Archie thank you SO much for such a fabulous stay in your home, we just loved it!! We'll definitely come back again!

Patsy:Trinity Square

This is a beautiful place, the midweek night that we stayed was quiet and we all slept brilliantly. The art supplies is a lovely touch. It's filled with thoughtful things and has a lovely cosy feel. The location was great. I would stay here again and definitely stay in one of Archie's places again. Communication was great.

Andy:Trinity Square

A truly outstanding experience. Only a short walk into the centre but on the outskirts so it's fairly quiet makes the location perfect. The house itself was a pleasure to stay in and the supply of art and materials a lovely touch for both the kids and the adults. Archie was also amazing at getting back to any question or query before and during our stay. We will 100% be back.

Olivia:Trinity Square

The apartment is exquisite, luxurious and at the same time very cosy and comfortable. Archie is so friendly, helpful and accommodating. It's brilliantly positioned in Margate. The kids absolutely loved it and enjoyed the beautiful arts & crafts hamper. I highly recommend this apartment and can't wait to come back!

Jamie:Sea View

Great cosy apartment in an amazing location. The flat was extremely clean, beautifully decorated and in a great location. We had an amazing time. I highly recommend this apartment

Howard:Sea View

Archie was fantastic, she was very accommodating and a great host. The house is beautiful, and provides everything you could possibly need! She supplied us with a travel coat for our little one, and milk and beer on arrival. She went above and beyond and would definitely recommend a stay.

Jason:Sea View

Wow! We stayed at Sea View for my 30th birthday weekend and were pleasantly surprised at how great the place really is - the description is detailed and accurate but the photos don't do the place justice at all, it's much better in person.... Archie was a great host who was on hand throughout whether we needed something or just to stay in touch - it was nice to know she was available. She also left a bottle of cava in the fridge for my birthday which was a much appreciated touch - thank you! The location is perfect right on the beach front with several shops and restaurants within a stones throw, we only wish we could have stayed longer as we had so much fun and really felt at home in this property with all the mod cons, well equipped kitchen, Netflix, wifi, outdoor space and BBQ we really couldn't have asked for anything more! Thanks so much Archie you really made my 30th a memorable one! Hope to see you again soon whether it be at sea view or one of your other fabulous properties!xxx

Ali:Sea View

I really enjoyed my stay at Sea View Sanctuary, it is so close to the beach and has amazing views. The apartment was beautifully decorated, very clean and comfortable. The outside area is really great and well lit at night. Archie was a great host and provided so much information prior to arrival that I settled in immediately. I look forward to visiting again and hope I am as lucky with the weather!
