Relaxed home with spacious bedroom containing comfortable bunk beds suitable for 1 or 2 guests, lots of storage,TV and tea/coffee facilities. The area is close to the A2 and an ideal location for exploring the Island, with a good bus/train service.
I have a generous sized room in my home which is in the quiet village of Garlinge on the outskirts of Margate. The room contains adult size bunk beds and is suitable for either 1 or 2 people, the rent is adjusted accordingly. There is also a mattress so a third person can be accommodated if needed. The room has good storage, TV with freeview and tea/coffee making facilities as well as a small fridge for your use. There is a table and chairs for guests to work and use laptops. There is also a hairdryer/curling tongs/hair straighteners and an iron/ironing board. Maps and tourist information leaflets are left in the room for guests own use. I share my home with my dog who is very friendly so it would be great if you like animals !
Although I don't provide breakfast guests have access to the kitchen facilities. There is a separate toilet and bathroom and Broadband is available. Use of washing machine and tumble dryer at £2 each to cover detergent, water and electric costs. There is an outside washing line to use, weather permitting, free of charge. There is also parking in the garden for guests with bikes. Although there is no parking directly ouside my house, on-street parking is available and Garlinge is a very safe area.
Interaction with guests
I am happy to interact with guests as much or as little as they want and leave it up to guests to decide.
The house is non smoking (although guests can smoke in the garden).
Although I don't mind guests eating in the room, I prefer it if you don't keep food in the room.
Unfortunately I can't allow pets because I have a dog.
Guests are asked to remove outdoor footwear on carpeted areas.
I don't provide breakfast but guests are welcome to use the kitchen facilities.
I don't charge a cleaning fee so all guests are requested to clear up after themselves. Use of washing machine and tumble dryer at £2 each to cover detergent, water and electric costs. There is an outside washing line to use, weather permitting, free of charge.
I want my guests to have a relaxed, stress-free stay so please mention any problems which may occur; but please take into account this is an old house and also a family home so gentleness and consideration are both very much appreciated.
I have lived in Kent for 19 years and absolutely love it ! Living by the coast is wonderful, especially because of the amazing sunsets. Margate itself is up and coming and it is great to see it develop once more into a thriving holiday location. I look forward to welcoming future guests and help them have a unique holiday experience !
