    Bungalow had everything you need and more, ice packs for cool bag and 2 picnic chairs even tablets for the dishwasher. Fresh flowers, a tea tray with biscuits and milk in the fridge on arrival. We did have a problem getting the water to stay at a constant temperature in the shower though so don’t know if we were doing something wrong.

  • "Bungalow was extremely clean and neat."

    Everything was there that we needed. Great situation for good coastal walks and visits to nearby towns. Two pub/restaurants within walking distance. Appreciated the recommendations of other restaurants in the area. 9 o clock check out was a bit too early. Although write up stated parking was on the road it was disappointing that there was a double drive at rear of bungalow that we could not use.

  • "Overall the bungalow was lovely, but there are few small things that I feel need addressing."

    The radiator in the living room was very small, and the room cooled down really quickly once the heating went off, the bathroom could do with an extractor fan, and a small radiator in the toilet would be good too :). Everything thing else was brilliant and the owners were very kind, allowing us entry to the property a bit early, as we were exhausted after a 41/2 hour journey.

    The property is well maintained and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, a real home from home and in a quiet location. The owners are lovely and live next door, which was handy if we needed anything, but we didn’t. The bus stop is located nearby, but we tended to walk into Whitstable, which was a 20 minute walk. Take up the landlord’s advice on the eateries. If you are a goody like us, The Dove, The Sportman, Cockle and Winkle, Samphire and Bubble where all fabulous, but book well in advance of your holiday if you can. Great beaches at Tankerton and Joss Bay too. The property location is great and I will definitely be visiting this bungalow again.

  • "We were naturally concerned about renting post Covid but have to say that we have never stayed in a property that was so thoroughly cleaned everywhere and our concerns were immediately put at rest, and so we must thank the owners Trudy and David for their diligence."

    Echo Beach was fully equipped with everything that we could possibly need .. but it was obvious from the start that this was no ordinary rental property, for example where else could you luxuriate in reclining sofas whilst watch TV at the touch of a button? We particularly enjoyed the large bright conservatory with comfy chairs and spending time early in the day and on our return in the private garden which was not overlooked. All electrical and cooking items performed faultlessly, and we enjoyed Echo Beach for its convenient location with easy access to the beaches of Thanet and all local attractions .. all within an easy 20 minute drive. The choice of beaches was considerable, to suit all interests and expectations, and we particularly enjoyed visiting a number of them. In practical terms Echo Beach was very conveniently located, in a small estate made up of Cul-de-sacs, so only minimal road noise or traffic passing through. In respect of shopping the local Co-Op was less than a five minute walk, and a choice of supermarkets within easy reach, as well as fine dining pubs to suit all tastes and pockets. Finally Echo Beach was a ‘home from home’, like living in our home but somewhere different. A delightful property!

The property

This delightful detached bungalow offers couples and families, with older children, the chance to stay in a light, spacious holiday home in the lovely village of Seasalter.

Beautifully presented to the highest of standards this two bedroom bungalow offers a warm home-from-home feeling from the moment you open the door.

The owners of this lovely bungalow live next door and have created a self-catering haven for those looking for space, peace and quiet.

From the comfy seating in the sitting room where you can settle down with a DVD and an evening together, to the large fitted kitchen with lots of workspace to rustle up some delicious meals during your stay, then shared around the table whilst discussing the day's experiences, this cottage combines style and comfort.

In this cottage the aim of the owners is to make your holiday a truly relaxing experience, including somewhere to sit and read either before bedtime or if rising early in the morning, the conservatory with its views over the well-kept rear, south-facing garden, is ideal.

Just outside the door of your cottage there are walks galore.

Why not take a stroll along the shoreline where you may see sailboats and windsurfers, or further along the coastline there is Westgate-on-Sea with its beautiful sandy beaches?

Whitstable is within walking distance if you enjoy a good walk.

However, if a day just lazing and listening to the waves against the shore is your idea of a relaxing treat, take a picnic, beach towel and sun lotion and spend it on the beach at Seasalter.

If you enjoy other leisure activities, why not enjoy a day of cricket at the Kent County Cricket Club in Canterbury, or there’s indoor bowling at the Oyster Indoor Bowling Club and outdoor bowling at Whitstable Castle?

So whether you are looking for a holiday to relax and unwind, while others race and run, or join in the games and have some fun, Echo Beach offers a perfect place to stay at any time of the year.

About the location


Whitstable 2 miles; Herne Bay 6 miles; Canterbury 5 miles; Faversham 5 miles; Westgate-on-Sea 10 miles.

Seasalter is a pretty village located by the sea on the north coast of Kent, between the towns of Whitstable and Faversham. The beach at Seasalter is mainly shingle and sand and therefore quieter than the more sandy bays at Westgate-on-Sea which is just along the coast. Seasalter Sailing Club, which has a clubhouse on Faversham Road, hosts catamaran boats which race on the River Swale Estuary, and there is also a private Water Ski Club with launch ramp. The Sportsman is a very popular pub and restaurant, earning a Michelin-star in 2008, so if you are celebrating a special event while visiting Seasalter this offers a mouthwatering menu, just make sure to book in advance. Public transport is very well covered in this village with regular buses to Canterbury, Whitstable and Faversham, each place offering visitors a day full of interest. Canterbury is ideal for a day exploring historic houses, taking walks or boat trips along the river, visiting a museum or two, a theatre evening or just enjoying a browse around the shops. A little less well known is that in Canterbury The Spitfire Ground is home to Kent County Cricket Club, and as well as cricket hosts other events during the year, so if a day of "leather on willow" is just for you or maybe a music event is more your scene, look to see what is on during your stay. Whitstable is a quaint coastal town, with cobbled streets, quirky shops and a well -visited fishing harbour where you can buy fish straight off of the boats, and if you want something to wash it down with, then take a trip to Faversham where you can take a guided tour around Shepherd Neame, Britain's oldest brewery dating back to 1698 and select a bottle to take home. After all the tours and sampling you may feel a day of walks and beachcombing could be just what you need, so pack a picnic and with a beach towel and a hat to shield the sun, make for the beach at Seasalter and enjoy the sound of the waves and the scent of the sea!

Note: Children aged 12 years and over only.
