About Melinda Barry
I love to escape the bustle of everyday life and spend time by the sea. I live just a few miles from Beach Retreat so I'm always on hand to offer my guests any assistance they need or provide local information! For direct bookings please email me, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Melinda Barry purchased this Chalet in 2010
Why Melinda Barry chose Seasalter
Beach Retreat is my dream house by the sea which I bought a few years ago. It's my pleasure to make it available to my guests, many of them regulars, who love this spot as much as I do. All rental income has been put into improving the property, most recently with a beautiful new kitchen area.
What makes this Chalet unique
Beach Retreat is remote and peaceful, yet not isolated. Convenient shops in the village of Seasalter are within walking distance; Whitstable with its working harbour, boutique shops and restaurants is 5 minutes drive, or a pleasant 45 minute walk around the bay. Birdwatchers need hardly leave the house, just wait for the seabirds to arrive at low tide! But Swale Nature Reserve is just down the beach, and Oare Marshes Reserve, with trails and hides for birdwatchers, is a few miles away near Faversham. For a unique local gourmet experience, try The Sportsman down the road - but you will need to book in advance!

Just what we'd hoped for!
Magnificent open views, every comfort and the delights of Whitstable just up the road. Very little passing traffic on Faversham Road.
Very relaxing. Nicely decorated with a beach theme. Amazing spot leading on to beach.
A lovely beachside getaway close to interesting places to visit. I would recommend this to others. WiFi was available to us when we arrived, which was a nice surprise as we were not expecting it. Really nice views, that enabled a restful weekend.
Perfect beach retreat!
We came back for or second stay at Beach Retreat, and loved it every bit as much as when we first came last year. So relaxing to wake up to the wonderful sea view, enjoy the lovely walk into Whitstable, dinner at the Sportsman and generally unwind in Melinda’s gorgeous beach house. We cannot wait to return! Huge thanks again Melinda, we will be back!
Lovely little chalet.
Lovely little chalet. Very warm,compact and cosy. Everything you could possible need. Near to Whitstable/Herne Bay/Tankerton. We had great weather in March but it did rain during the night so when you went for walks, boots were muddy but could be washed off with the hose but it needs a porch/canopy just somewhere you could leave them to dry off outside the house in colder months but that would not stop us visiting again. Very quiet area and we enjoyed a bottle or 2 looking at the views! Lots of walking to do in both directions. Will definitely visit again. Thank you.
So glad you enjoyed your stay! Look forward to welcoming you again, and I hope you have sunny weather, but if it does rain, you can pop your boots under the decking by the steps, where they should dry off nicely!
Just back from my third visit, has always been perfect-say no more.
Clean warm and comfortable for a February visit.
Very smart and pretty also everything was immaculate
We were lucky to have sunshine and we were able to walk to where the beach had soft clean sand, the sea shells were amazing. Every thing we needed and more had been catered for.
We took binoculars and saw some amazing birds.
