About Rob Day
We have always dreamed of owning a place by the sea in this part of Kent, since visiting from London when we were kids. We wanted to find somewhere by the sea, away from crowds and traffic, but without sacrificing creature comforts. We love the peace, space and the amazing light on the beach outside but also the award-winning independent shops and restaurants in and around Deal. We spend as much time as possible at the property but will always do our best to accommodate guest bookings and do not "black out" any dates. We hope you love it here as much as we do!
Rob Day purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Rob Day chose Deal
We think Deal and Walmer offer the perfect combination of traditional British seaside atmosphere, unspoilt and historic architecture, and miles of clean and often deserted beaches. Walmer is the quiet and leafy end of town with an incredible sense of peace and space on the beach, which is often completely empty even in August. Our dog appreciates the canine company to be found out walking along the coast path. We love to cook and eat out: there is a market, superb independent butchers and fishmongers, delicatessen, independent wine merchants and a large Sainsburys all close by. At least five chippies, countless cafes, and a long list of quality independent pubs and restaurants for all budgets.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is roomy and spacious. Parking is free and easy even in high season. Everything is within walking distance - whether you want to visit the castles, eat out, buy supplies or head up the cliffs towards Dover.

Charming, period apartment, excellent location
Perfect location, right on the beach. Good entertaining space for family and friends at Christmas and would be ideal in the summer months too. Would definitely recommend and return
The property is great and in a great location. The only issue is the noisy pipes that are particularly noticeable at night time. Thoroughly enjoyed our stat though
Convenient position to visit attractions.
The apartment is nice and had everything needed.but we found the flat quite dark especially the main bedroom. It needs a little colour about the place to brighten it up!
Nice property very spacious looks like it does in the photos. Only real negative (and this is a reflection on the whole building and not just this apartment), there is a large bush by the entrance that obscures the view of a very busy little road. You actually have to step into the road to see if it is clear. It would help if this was trimmed down a bit, as little ones or dogs could run straight out in front of a car.
We are very glad you enjoyed the apartment. The hedge has now been trimmed - apparently the gardener had been on holiday and missed a month.
One of our favourite places to stay
We've stayed here a number of times and always loved it. The decor, layout and general feel of the place is like a home from home, and a perfect base to explore the area.
Thanks Tristan, it was great to have you back again - glad you had fun!
The flat is well equipped and has good quality fittings. The area is quiet.
I found it a bit gloomy as it is painted in dark colours. Just a personal thing as I like places to be light. My friends loved it, so maybe it's just me.:)
The building is on the sea front at Walmer Beach. Walmer is an expansive shingle beach studded with wild grasses and fennel and backing onto well maintained greens popular with runners and dog-walkers. The beach extends unbroken for a mile or two to Kingsdown in the south, where there is a great beachside pub, The Zetland Arms. To the north you can walk up past Deal pier to the Sandwich golf courses. There is an excellent beginners sailing club and fishing boats offer days trips from Deal.
