About this listing

Your own en suite studio bedroom with mini kitchen (DIY breakfast) in our comfortable and spacious home. On a quiet street, just 5 minutes from the sea and 20 minutes walk from the old town and the famous Turner Contemporary Art Gallery.

The space

The Grey room is a newly refurbished bedroom, in our house. There is a mini "Elfin" kitchen kitchen in the "alcove" and en suite shower and toilet, with all new fixtures and fittings. We are still working on the garden for the summer.
We also have the Yellow room under a separate listing - Feel at Home by the Seaside YR, which has all the same facilities as the Grey room.
The beds can be twin or super king size double, whichever you prefer as they can zip together or apart if needed.
The mini kitchen has a fridge, 2 electric hobs, a microwave with grill and oven features and a small sink and draining board and enough equipment to cook a small meal.
We provide a welcome tray of apples, bananas, Tunnock's tea cakes and homemade granola bars, biscuits and Kentish crisps. There is also tea, instant and fresh coffee, milk and sugar plus fruit and nut muesli. (Let me know if you would like a milk alternative).
Fresh towels are provided, along with shampoo, conditioner and shower gel and there is also a hair drier

Guest access

Our downstairs sitting area with open fire and the garden if you want to chill out.

Interaction with guests

If you want a quiet retreat that's fine or you can spend a bit of time with us to find out whats going on, nice places to eat and what there is to see and do around the Isle.

Other things to note

No 9 is the only house on the street painted seaside yellow, towards the Northdown Road end of the street at the top of the hill. There are some striking hydrangea bushes in the garden which are huge in the summer

1. Wonderful room - large, bright, clean with interesting decorations and self catering facilities. 2. Lovely treats, fruit and breakfast provisions. 3. Quiet and self contained room. 4. Close to local shops and short walk to coast and Margate town. 5. Loads of buses just up the road. 6. Some info in pack needs updating (2015 references). 7. Prefer if bath towels were big enough to wrap around body. Would definitely be happy to visit again someday.

This was a perfect place to stay for a long weekend. Fran was very hospitable and helpful. The room was spotless and had everything you needed to make the stay there comfortable and relaxing. Perfect location near to the sea front and surrounding areas.

We had a very peaceful and comfortable night in Fran's beautiful home, the room was really nicely decorated and Fran was the perfect host. Highly recommended : )

Beautifully presented B & B. The room was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. Fran had gone to a lot of effort to make it homely, including providing port for a night cap! My only observation was that the breakfast was cereal and fruit which was lovely and fresh, but we felt we needed to go elsewhere to eat breakfast.

Fran User ProfileFran is a superhost.

After 25 years in destination management and marketing, I now work part time running my tourism consultancy "Tourism Works" and a property maintenance and management company LF Properties. I love renovating old properties but I think No 9 will be the last for some time!

I love cooking and from time to time run a pop up restaurant - "The Melting Pot Experiment". The name relates not only to cooking but to my family connections with Lebanon, Tirana and Turkey, so we can rustle up a good middle eastern, European or British meal. We like to mix and experiment!

Leo, my foster son has been working on renovating No 9 for two years now - its been on and off because in between he has to run LF Properties but now we are ready to receive guests and joined Airbnb in October. We still have some decorating work to do in the hall, stairs and landing and the garden needs designing to include an nice outside living space for our family and guests.

My son Mark lives in Chelmsford and comes to visit regularly with his lovely whippet, Jasper. Jasper has an interesting relationship with our African grey parrot Miss Dickie. Miss Dickie is very talkative and generally noisy and speaks French and Albanian as well as English, dog, cat, computer and telephone!! She has been know to peck the odd finger or dogs nose! We also have 3 chickens; Betty, Sonia and Sally who lay eggs for us unless they are having a little holiday!

My partner, Savas, is Turkish and when he is not running his boat business in Dalyan he comes here and helps Leo and I with the renovation and decorating. He is a great chef too.
