'Little Bird' is a recently refurbished Georgian 2 bedroom home in Deal's beautiful conservation area. It's just one street away from the beach and award winning High Street. We use 'Little Bird' as a place to relax. With this in mind we have made the house like home from home with feather pillows and duvets, pocket-sprung mattresses, Egyptian cotton bed linen and White Company towels, relaxing sofa, Smart TV and all basic condiments in the kitchen catered for.
The house is set over four floors, on the ground floor is a sitting room with Smart TV and wi-fi which leads into the kitchen. The courtyard is accessed from the kitchen through double doors. On the first floor there is 1 double bedroom with a king size bed which can also be made into two single beds. The second floor has a double bed and the room is open to the rafters. The lower ground floor is the dining room.
We have just fully refurbished the house in a stylish and contemporary way. Everything has been chosen with care and with comfort and practicality in mind. A hairdryer, iron and ironing board are provided along with White Company towels and Egyptian cotton bed linen. Plus there is a washer/dryer, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. We stay at the house a lot and wanted it to feel like a proper home so if you want to cook a roast or bake a cake or just snuggle on the sofa and read a book it's perfect. We also have wireless wi-fi, a smart TV and Netflick's. A log-burner will be fitted this September.
The bathroom has a shower but no bath. However you can choose to either shower using the fixed head or a separate showerhose if you didn't want to get your hair wet. The shower is a good powerful one and we have provided an inflatable bath for babies.
Also for children is a travel cot, potty, high chair, baby gate for the stairs, a baby step for cleaning their teeth and reaching the sink..
As the house is set over four floors there are 3 flights of stairs that may feel a little steep for the elderly and very small children - hand rails have been fitted (though we never personally use them).
I am available to talk to by phone at any time if there are problems, whilst not based in Deal we are nearby.
Normal -CHECK IN is circa 3pm with CHECK OUT at 11am. If we have no guests coming straight in, and subject to the changeover team- these can be amended to allow a later check out time.
As this is a home we spend time in we have left basics in the house, as I hate going to self-catering accommodation and there is literally nothing. The basics are there: washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets/salt/rinse aid, washing powder, toilet roll, kitchen roll, and some basic food products such as rice, pasta, bouillon, olive oil and herbs etc.. There is also a small welcome gift for guests.
There are towels provided for guests, however please could you bring your own beach towels.
Also if something breaks or isn't working let us know so we can make sure we fix it and ensure the house is tip top for you and the next person staying.
And finally but importantly our neighbours are lovely but please respect them and try not to be noisy late at night.
Deal, and particularly the conservation area is wonderful. Lots of little streets full of beautiful buildings which have remained untouched for century's. Everything is a stone's throw away - the sea, the high street with it's amazing independent boutique shops and high street stores can be walked to in minutes. It is a happy community and everyone is happy to help visitors enjoy the town. A full guide of restaurants, coffee shops and places we like to visit in Deal and the surrounding areas such as Broadstairs, Ramsgate and Folkestone is available when you stay.
Free parking is available beyond North Street on the sea front which is three roads or a couple of minutes away, so unload at the house and then park. We find we rarely use the car when you are here as independent food stores and supermarkets are nearby. There are regular bus and train services within a 5-10 minute walk from the house.
