Featured in The Guardian and the Daily Mail, the Beach Sun Retreat is no ordinary beachfront holiday home.

Not only is the house – formerly a seaside hotel – perfectly set within the stunning ‘Garden of England’, easily accessible to Kent’s thriving coastal towns (with private bridge access to a sandy beach) and perfect for group breaks, you won’t have to worry about the weather forecast for your entire stay!

Featuring a Real Sunlight multi-sensory room equipped with palm trees, adjustable sound and light settings, you can bask in healthy 30 degree sunshine without leaving the house – and more importantly without having to slap on the Factor 50, as the majority of harmful UV rays have been cleverly filtered out.

As if that wasn’t enough, if you find yourselves tiring of sunlight and cocktails, why not enjoy a movie night in the bespoke cinema room, with its surround sound, vintage seating and popcorn maker…or better yet, arrange an Ibiza-style gathering complete with in-house DJ equipment and lighting?  How about pretending you’re a top celebrity chef in the stainless steel commercial kitchen?

Ideal for group celebrations and reunions that will get everybody talking during and after your stay, you’ll find every part of the house bathed in imaginative style.

From the immaculate gardens equipped with day swing, Koi pond and lighting, to the sleek private bar and lively communal spaces, to seven individually styled en-suite bedrooms furnished with sumptuous linens, you’ll find everything you need for a luxury-drenched break.

The Pondicherry bedroom, decked in gorgeous blue-green hues, comes complete with a decadent swing, while the fun Surfers’ Den room is perfect for the kids – it even features its very own Xbox.
