An apartment - that can cater for all.
Sunset loft is perfect for a family, or a couple or a party of friends. The interior is warm and contemporary, and we felt instantly at home, it was very clean, with a fully equipped kitchen.
My husband fell in love with the projector screen and the world cup final was an event watching it on this huge screen. My teenager daughter fell in love with the hot tub, and my toddler son was immediately at home and loved his bunk beds. Me, I fell in love with Whitstable, with its restaurants and bars, the shops and the people. The apartment is situated in Tankerton, which is a lovely suburb of Whitstable, with fantastic amenities and only a ten minute stroll along the coastal path into Whitstable.
Whitstable is definitely an upmarket seaside destination, as was the apartment - Michelle and Chris were quick to respond to any queries, and the luxury hamper and prosecco on our arrival was the icing on the cake. i would highly recommend sunset Loft - book it way in advance to avid disappoint .

Out of this world
Just returned from a weekend away at Sunset Loft. 4 girls on a birthday treat for our friend. We had the most amazing time. They have thought of everything. Hot tub was fantastic, place was so clean and very high spec. The location could not have been better everything was so near, beach over the road, marina a walk away and town , well we were in the middle, what more could we want. Brilliant place and we will be back for more x
A little taste of Heaven!
Our 2 week stay at Sunset Loft was once again amazing as always. The location is fantastic with the beach, bars, shops and restaurants on your doorstep, and just a 10 minute walk into Whitstable. We especially loved the private roof terrace and hot tub and the 100" cinema screen. The apartment as always was very comfortable and very clean. We didn't want to leave and look forward to returning again next year. Thanks Michelle and Chris xx

Perfect relaxing break
We stayed at Sunset Loft for 3 nights, and left having had a great relaxing break. An ideal base to explore the surrounding area, and an easy walk along the promenade into Whitstable. Coming back to the apartment was just like arriving back home - accommodation was clean and well-equipped. The hot tub and projector TV were the icing on the cake (not to mention the lovely welcome pack on arrival!)
a relaxing getaway
Book this if you need a rest. Fantastic all round. 5 stars. Hot tub, champers, log fire, giant TV screen... Something for everyone.
Ps. Pet friendly did not mean dog hairs/smell... there was no sign of animals or smokers at all :)
Excellent facilities, very relaxing
Our recent stay was very relaxing, we were here away from the hustle and bustle of London, and was worth while, the apartment is ideally located within minutes away from the sea, was very nice to go out for a jog early morning along the sea front too,
Only issue was the boiler broke down on our last evening, for which the owners got sorted out that very evening, we were also offered the property next door for the remainder of our stay, but we decided not to go for that as we were due to leave in the morning,
Overall stay was fantastic, apartment is very child friendly too
The apartment is just beautiful. There are so many little touches that make it a home away from from home - whilst also being so luxurious that it's actually much, much better than being at home! The welcome pack is great and the hot tub fantastic for watching the sky whatever the weather. The location is perfect- just right for walking or checking out the local sights. I can't fault anything about our stay- it was absolutely perfect.
Our 2nd time staying at sunset loft and again we left feeling incredibly relaxed and well rested! It's a great apartment with everything you could possibly need. It's in an ideal position with all the shops so near on the high street and a great little micro pub!! The cinema screen and hot tub make this an extra special place to stay and we love it!!
Great time nice and clean
Would certainly go back again.
Brilliant,relaxing, winter weekend away!
We had a fantastic weekend at Sunset Loft. Surprise early check in thanks to a text from Michelle. Apartment very clean, spacious and luxurious. Hot tub a real treat, even in the torrential rain! Home cinema system a huge bonus. Location perfect for the seaside and a real child friendly property. Welcome basket was a fantastic touch, thanks so much. We will definately be returning. Loathed to shout about this little gem as will never be available in the future! Fantastic January break. We will definately be returning.
Hot Tub Relaxation
The apartment had everything you could have wanted and is situated perfectly! I went to have a mini break that was planned to be relaxing. I was not let down! The big screen projector, large couch and Hot Tub were the perfect ingredients for a relaxing time!
A Hidden Gem
The easiest to book break I have ever made. Communication from Michelle was very swift.
On arrival the apartment was spotlessly clean with a lovely welcome basket and fresh linen and bedding. The apartment is spacious and modern, easily enough room for a family. Although just my husband and I went on this occasion.
Close to all you could need for your stay, shops & beach. Lots to do in the area. The Hot tub was lovely, it was easily accessible, clean and ready for immediate use. There was a slight problem with the heating but after telephoning the number provided this was attended to within 20mins of our call.
New year break
Great way to see in new year !! Everything well organised , sunset loft ideal .
Hot tub fantastic , tv great ... Not sure who put fireworks on but they were great too ,,,!
Whitstable lovely fish market !!
Excellent location !! ... Thanks
The property is well stocked and the welcome basket was very tasty. The hot tub was nice and hot and the big tv went don't well with the kiddies.
We had such an amazing time staying here. The Sunset loft had everything we needed plus more and was by far the cleanest place we have stayed in. The huge screen, projected and hot tub just topped it off. Many shops, takeaways and restaurants near by. We would definitely recommend this place for families as well as couples. Hope to come back next year!
The service we received throughout was brilliant, all my emails were replied to quickly, and once we were there when we couldn't work the DVD player the owner was around within 20 mins to help us.
The Loft was exactly as described on the internet (which is always a bit of a gamble). It was really well appointed with everything you could need in the kitchen, the welcome basket was a lovely touch.
Location-wise we were a 5 min walk from the beach, and about 15 mins brisk walk along the sea front to Whitstable. We ate out both in Tankerton and Whitstable, and really enjoyed the range of food available, especially the exceptional seafood.
A great mini break, I would really recommend it.
Stayed at the sunset loft on our honey moon.
The place speaks for its self.There little touch
Of the bottle of wine in fridge when we arrived
Basket of goodies was fun.The hottub was
Perfect we has a lovely time and are hopefully
Going to return next year some time.Cannot fault
Fresh clean and fantastic! I bought my wife here for her birthday great location the apartment I couldn't fault it was clean fresh and welcoming I shall be returning and highly recommend to anybody who wants a few days away to chill out.
Monday-Friday anniversary Break
The accommidation was spotless with a lovely arrival pack. We had a perfect time and enjoyed every second if our stay.
The extra large double bed was a god-send and we both slept like logs inspite of my usual snoring !
The large comfortable sofa and the surround sound cinema living room were perfect for our evenings in.
The hot tub was a wonderful touch and afforded us the luxury of total relaxation. It was a well deserved relaxing 5 days and the owners were as helpful as required, but too be fair all our requirements were fully accommidated within the accommodation and its contents.
In summary: a small taste of heaven away from a busy lifestyle.
Many many thanks to Michelle and Chris.
We will be returning in the future.
Much better than staying in a hotel, hot tub, projector screen and welcome pack are all excellent!
Lovely room, comfortable bed and immaculately clean.
When I stay ay Whitstable again we will stay here!
The Clark Family
Very pleasant place to stay ideally located.
My family all enjoyed the accommodation, especially the hot-tub. Brilliant location and they take dogs. Nice courtesy basket on arrival.
Nice to have all facilities close to hand, we would especially recommend the local butchers.
The 96 inch TV was great for watching movies on.
The instructions on the general waste bins, food bins and re-cycling could have been clearer especially as it appears as some bins are collected every other week by the council.
Be warned that the locals ignore double yellow lines, fortunately it never caused us a problem trying to leave the parking space.
A gem of a place to stay in a delightful town
Our stay with five children and two parents in this apartment was probably the best holiday we have ever had. The rooms, the hot-tub, the deck, the 80" TV, the whole place was simply wonderful. The apartment is not open concept which worked very well for putting our younger children to bed while the older ones stayed up. The Kitchen and all it offers - even a washing machine for laundry - was awesome. The gift basket on arrival, including champagne and a host of great treats from local vendors was a classy touch. The quick walk to the sea was a real advantage, and the ready location of all the great shops -- bakery accross the street, fresh fruit and vegatables a few doors down, a supermarket a few steps away, and even a host of great restaurants -- we couldn't have planned it any better. The offstreet parking was great, and it was ready access to Canterbury, Leeds Castle, and less than an hour from London -- we absolutely loved it! If I had to come up with something that could use improvement -- while the master bed and triple bedroom beds were very comfortable, the bunk beds were definitely not. Our 7 and 11 year old never complain about comfort, but did there. My guess is that they simply need new mattresses. I would be wary of booking adults into that room before they are replaced.
This apartment was fantastic, good comfortable beds, cosy living room, the kitchen was well equipped but the best part by far was the hot tub. Would defiantly visit again!!
A very pleasant break
A well appointed apartment, hot tub and outside space a bonus. A bit noisy early in the morning but as it is on a shopping street this is to be expected. Unfortunately my usual gripe applies - nowhere to plug in the hair dryer anywhere near a mirror! all in all a good place to chill out for a few days
Clapham, North Yorkshire
Best Ever Family Holiday!!
This is our 2nd stay at Sunset Loft and it is just perfect. The welcome pack of goodies is a great idea, The roomy apartment is excellent for a family as you can all have your own space. We all loved the Hot tub - especially our 5yr old!! The area the apartment is in is lovely and handy for the Beach and a small walk into Whitstable for a wander around the little shops.
We love it here.
Thank you very much to Michelle & Chris.
Very nice accomadation and great value
Apartment was very nice and had everything you needed in it.
Location was very good with everything within walking distance. We didn't use car whilst we stayed.
Would stay again and recommend.
Everything we wanted for a "time for us" holiday.
On entering the property,we were really surprised at the outstanding accommodation.We immediately took advantage of the hot tub,sampling the lovely bottle of bubbly from the welcome pack!Loved the large projector screen,and comfortable sofa!We slept well in the enormous comfortable bed.Had a couple of walks to Whitstable 15 mins.for some amazing freshly caught whelks,at the harbour (recommend West Whelks)up the steps. Bus fare home to sunset loft was only £0.90p.Had BBQ one day,sampling the local butchers produce.Close by there is Cantonese restaurant which is superb,cake shops, and a handy Tesco store.This was our second visit,and will return again.

Lovely photo Bill!!
Good to have you back, glad you enjoyed your stay.
We look forward to seeing you again soon
Michelle & Chris
Spent a lovely weekend at the loft the weather was very cold and windy but once we were sat on the roof terrece with a lovely hot tub we soon warmed up
The loft was lovely and clean and very wellcoming with a great hamper wine and milk in the fridge and also fresh flowers
We had planned to have a evening out but we were so comfortable watching the large tv screen we stayed put and had take out instead .
We shall definitely be staying again
A great place to relax
We've just returned from a 4 night break at sunset loft. A well equipped apartment, the jaccuzzi was a great way to rest tired legs after long walks with the dog during the day. We had a rainy day so we watched some Dvds on the large screen- just like being at the cinema! It was great that we could take Pepsi our dog and with it being so near the coast great for her walkies, a lovely food hamper was there to greet us too- so if you want to have a relaxing indulgent break I could recommend sunset loft.
The Organiser :)
We were a group of 8 30-somethings, all on my sisters hen do. Having spent weeks looking for the 'perfect' available place was turning into a slight headache. Thankfully Michelle saved the day. Other properties were advertised and showing as available, and having left messages and emails they never got back to me, grrr. So getting the booking was the first part done. All the pictures did the place justice. Just what we wanted, and the right price. Its located about 10min walk into Whitstable. In all honesty, Tankerton isnt that pretty. When we pulled up outside, I thought we had gone to the wrong place as it looked more like an office. But once we got in, we were very pleasantly surprised. All rooms were nicely furnished, very homely, a lovely welcome pack waiting for us. There was a big double, a second room with a double and single, and then the bunk room with the extra bed. The hen got first pick, and went for the huge double. All beds were comfy though, and rooms decent size. And of course the hot tub! We got straight in before we unpacked! Added bonus with the entertainment system, meant we could put some music on and start as we meant to go on! Id organised activites for the whole weekend. We strolled along the seafront into Whitstable the next morning, had some comuplsory oysters, mooched around the quirky shops. Then we got the bikes we had hired, and cycled the crab and winkle way to Canterbury. We went punting when we got there, amazing. Then back for more hot tub, before we went to the Pearson arms for dinner. The whole weekend was perfect from start to finsh. Sunset Loft was exactly what we all needed. We were so lucky too as the sun was out, which completed the weekend. I can imagine in the summer it would be perfect location, as you are so close to the beach. But everything you would need is there, eg shops etc. And the stroll into Whitstable is very nice, so you dont feel too far away. Thank you Sunset Loft!
Once again great time had at the loft, Michelle and Chris gave prompt and informative info as usual. The flat is lovely light and airy.
Hot tub great, lovely big TV a really super place.
I'm sure will return again
Fantastic place to stay. Very large apartment in a great location. Stayed for a short weekend with the misses and dog peppa. Loved everything about the place. Just wanted to stay in the Hot Tub everyday. Loved the welcome hamper, and the milk in the fridge was a thoughtful touch. Lots of great restaurants around locally. The Chinese across the road is well worth a visit on a Friday or Saturday night, normally have some very good entertainment on. The shower isn't the best, not a lot of water pressure. But this was soon forgotten after cuddling up on the very comfortable sofa and watching a film on the massive TV, perfect night in. Will definitely be visiting again, or to one of the other sister rentals. Thank you Michelle for making the whole weekend a very pleasent one x Read more

Thanks Mark we look forward to welcoming you again in the future
We spent my boyfriends birthday at Sunset loft and we had the best time ever! The loft is just minutes away from the beach in a very convenient area of Tankerton with local shops, tea rooms and take aways!
TheLoft is inmaculate, with all the commodities , super comfy bed, massive TV projector and the amazing hot tub! we loved it! It was a lovely surprise to have a basquet with goodies from Michelle filled with local products, milk in the firdge and a bottle of sparkling wine! Nice touch!!
If you are an animal lover, this place is perfect as is dog friendly, kayla (my golden) says thanks too!
The only think i didnt find perfect was that the water in the shower wasnt hot enough and couldnt work out how to use the coffee machine! ha ha
We totally recommend it and we will defo go back again!!!
Booked for a group of 8: 5 guys, 2 girls, 1 baby.
Great size for all of us, with very comfortable and modern facilities in lounge, kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms.
Loads of amenities nearby, and Whitstable just a 10-15minute walk (and a great walk at that - either along the beach, or through the 'castle' grounds, and around Whitstable Harbour - wish we'd made more of the local seafood.
Biggest plus points were the massive TV screen, perfect for a lazy Sunday morning watching The Blues Brothers, and of course the hot tub, which is an awesome escape in the cold winter.
We stayed here over the Christmas period and everyone in the group was so impressed with the place. Even before our trip started Michelle was so helpful at answering any questions we had on the area/property.
The place has been decorated to such a high standard and has everything you could think of for your stay. Particular highlights for us were the L shaped sofa and the massive TV projector. This was perfect for a large group of 7 adults. The welcome basket was such a lovely touch and shows how much thought has gone in to making sure you enjoy your stay.
The area itself is beautiful and we made sure to jump on the bus (which stops outside the property) to go to nearby Canterbury for a day trip.
You won't regret booking this place!

New Year Break...
Sunset Loft is lovely once you step inside... We had a relaxing stay which is what we went for. The Hot tub was great although sometimes a little too hot and an outside speaker would be great so you could hear the tv and not just see a picture! The apartment was very comfortable and clean the kingsize bed was wonderful, just a shame to be woken about 6.30 each morning by road traffic outside bedroom window! Lots of takeaways on doorstep and Tesco's just across the road so never short of food. Walks along beach were nice and not far at all to Whitstable for a drink or two then a nice stroll back! We enjoyed our stay but sadly for us we probably will not return purely for the noisey location of the apartment other than that we could not fault it.. comfortable, clean and a nice little welcome pack!
Cosy, cosy, cosy!
Very well appointed flat with everything you need. Hot tub great, loving the projector for the cinema experience and comfy sofas. Great for dogs, straight onto the sea front.
Road can be a bit noisy but you can't have the convenience of take aways, shops and a Trsco Express without road noise.

Tickled pink in Tankerton
From start to finish staying at Sunset Loft has been a huge pleasure, thanks to the excellent customer service and the fantastic accommodation.
The apartment is extremely well appointed and has everything close by that you could need - a bakery for fresh bread, fruit & veg store, mini supermarket and multiple takeaways and other eateries. This means that you only have to travel a short distance from your doorstep for all your essentials if you are having difficulty tearing yourself away from the wifi, hot tub, projector TV and other home comforts! However if you can drag yourself away, the pubs, fine dining establishments and designer stores of Whitstable are only a short bus or car journey away or even a brisk walk along the beach for the less slothful visitor.
We were a group of seven girls split between Sunset Loft and Oyster Lounge. Both places were amazing however we spent most of the time in Sunset Lodge chilling out watching the huge TV (& eating chocolate!). Everyone enjoyed the HotTub at some point too. The property is furnished to a high standard and we all hope to go back either as a group or with our families. Really loved it!
This is the second time we've stayed at Sunset Loft and we loved it just as much this time round. The apartment is well equipped and decorated, Tankerton is a great spot with lots of amenities and the hot tub is awesome! The welcome basket is a lovely gesture as well.
A convenient location with added bonuses!
Sunset Loft is located very conveniently for Tankerton Beach and is only a stone's throw from local amenities. The large screen projector and hot tub were added luxuries. Overall, the accommodation suited our needs and we had a great stay.
This was our second stay at Sunset Loft and it did not disappoint.
The apartment was lovely and spacious with the added bonus of a welcome pack when we arrived!
Our favourite part was the hot tub, always at the perfect temperature and well positioned for catch the last rays of sun. The apartments being on the high street also meant we could easily nip out for some food or a drink.
The perfect short stay! x
We had a fantastic long weekend at Sunset Loft. We were hugely impressed when we arrived. All of the furniture is really high quality, the flat is extremely spacious, the Super King size bed is amazing, and we didn't even know there was a huge cinema screen in the lounge for a chilled out film and bottle of wine!
The hot tub was just as we had hoped. The roof terrace gets the sun all day and the hot tub is so secluded and private.
We will definitely be returning. I can't say a bad word about this place...loved it!!

Super relaxing and delightfully fitted out flat
I spent a week at Sunset Loft. The flat is decorated and furnished in a modern, contemporary style and is very light- filled and clean. The welcome pack was unexpected, but lovely. Great cinema size tv screen with Sky package and hot tub. Highly recommended for a great break on the Kent coast
7 girls in their late 20s wanted a weekend away by the coast and wow did we get a treat! We loved the hot tub, and the lovely thoughtful treats already in the fridge on our arrival. We were able to have a great BBQ on the Friday evening and loved being able to sit outside in the evening.
Perfect location, wonderful clean apartment and fantastic facilities!
Thank you so much.
Had a great fortnight in Kent - our first visit there. Location and amienities helped make it all the more relaxing. Apartment was well equipped for a family of four and when we had a problem with the TV projector it was fixed withing 4 hours - desperately needed given it was the middle of the Olympics.
Tim & Kate
A brilliant time in very sunny Tankerton!
Having stayed at one of their other properties before (Honey Lodge) I had high expectations of Sunset Loft and I wasn't disappointed. The apartment was absolutely beautiful, spotlessly clean, had everything you could want and was in a great position. The hot tub was one of our main reasons for booking and it was well used - and we found we could even watch the huge TV in the lounge through the window! Everything about the apartment was brilliant and the huge sofa in the lounge and the massive super king-size bed in the master bedroom helped make our stay extremely relaxing. The location is excellent as you have a variety of local shops on your doorstep and you can be on the beach in 5 minutes. Booking was very easy and Chris and Michelle made sure everything was in place to ensure we had a great stay. We'll definitely be back again (and again)!
The Sunset Loft may not look that promising from the outside but once in it has immaculate and fresh decor. We were greeted with a handy basket of bread and cereals, milk in the fridge and tea bags to get us going. There's a very handy Tesco across the road and lots of good local shops for anything else you need. Good location, 2 mins to the cliff top and onto the beach. A nice 10 min stroll into Whitstable or regular buses if you can't be bothered to walk it. It's handy that you can add as many rooms as you need for your group. The key asfe is nifty too so you can always get in if your party is going out sepatately. And the hot tub is quite a treat of course! Will definitely be back.

An excellent family holiday, The apartment was beautifully clean & spacious. The hot tub was brill - we couldn't keep the older 2 out of it! The projector screen made tv viewing unreal, 2 minutes from the beach at Tankerton and all amenities in the village needed for your perfect holiday. Keep up the good work and thank you so much.
Perfect apartment; Perfect Location; The Perfect Break
Our long weekend stay at Sunset Loft was everything we could have hoped it would be. The apartment is clean, well presented and has all the ammenities you could wish for, not least the hot tub, cinema screen and most comfortable king size bed. The location is great, with plenty of local shops, restaurants, & take aways on your doorstep, making for a very easy weekend. Tankerton Beach is a stones throw away and a lovely stroll along the beach front brings you to Whistable within 10 mins. I highly reccommend buying fresh fish from the Harbour to cook in the well appointed kitchen or on the BBQ if you are lucky with the weather. The decked patio is a suntrap and the hot tub is a must for unwinding after a day of hustle & bustle in Whitstable's Harbour and shopping streets or a long walk along the seafront to Seasalter. I can only describe it as the perfect break, with lots to do out & about and the perfect accomodation that you just can't wait to return to. We will definitely be back!
Superb Weekend @ Sunset Loft
This was just the perfect accommodation for what we were looking for. A girly hen weekend celebration, we had 8 ladies sleeping here. It is so spacious it never once felt like there were too many of us. The huge comfy sofa's, full size beds for everyone and the cinema screen all helped create the homely atmosphere I was looking for. The hot tub went down a storm, and was a great benefit when it was too chilly for the beach. Towels and bedding provided for everyone, and plenty of bits in the kitchen to keep us going (milk, juice, bread, cereal, oil, dishwasher tablets etc!). I had a fantastic stay here and we are hoping to come back again. Excellent value.
Once again we had a wonderful time at the loft, the facilities are excellent and the lovely welcome basket of all the things you need to start your holiday.
A lovely little suntrap on the two days and on the third we even went in the hot tub in the rain.Just perfect and we will definetly be going back.Service from Michelle was first class. So close to everything you could need and the harbour market for fresh fish just wonderful.
Peace and relaxation
We had a wonderful stay at sunset loft. The highlight wa without doubt the hot tub
the facilities were excellent and the location was perfect
Would definitly re visit
would be nice to have outside soeakers for TV while in hot tub
We were looking at hotels for a short break but came across this apartment that really offered everything in terms of oomfort and luxury for a weekend escape. The flat was immaculately clean and well equipped and ticked all our boxes for a relaxing peaceful weekend. Nice touches such as wine, welcome box with essentials and flowers. Will recommend to others and will be back. Good that they base cost on occupation so makes it affordable for couples.
Great apartment in lovely Whitstable
Great stay in this well equipped apartment - would happily recommend and may well return in the spring!
Lovely apartment and great hot tub, this was my third stay and I will visit again soon.
Autumn in the Hot Tub
On arrival you are welcomed with a very handy welcome pack including some essentials. Also fresh flowers was a real nice touch. Bedrooms were really comfortable, beds great and useful to have the tvs in the rooms. Main room was large enough for 5 of us to sit very comfortably. Projector tv was a great novelty and the hot tub was wonderful. Overall it was a great place to relax even with two young boys. Location was great with some very handy shops near by.
A lovely way to relax even for a short break
After losing my husband my son's and I booked Sunset Loft for a long weekend away together. Excellent,very clean,well laid out,very comfortable,everything you need and the hot tub was the icing on the cake,especially as you can watch the large TV from the tub. Will be going back.
A luxury short summer break
This was a short break for my wife's birthday and we were looking for somewhere that would provide quality accomodation with a great location. Sunset loft gave us just what we wanted
Comfortable and relaxing
As part of our group there were 7 adults and 2 infants staying at the Loft. Everything was perfect on arrival - including welcome basket. All amenities worked well. The few problems there were were rectified immediately - which was really just an outside bulb being replaced, the bbq gas needed refilling and the outside umbrella was damaged. Chris was immediately on hand to deal with the issues promptly (thanks Chris!!)
The location was lovely and plenty of varied shops around. The regatta was on so local area was busier than usual.
The big screen projector was pretty cool - but would be nice to have Hdmi option (if you are geeky like me and want to plug in laptops/media devices etc). Hot tub was excellent and clean - even at night when temp drops the hot tub is a lovely experience.
Bedrooms were perfect and spacious - everyone slept like babies - probably more than the babies!
If this was going to be 5star for value - I would say a few plants on the decking, more cool lighting, maybe one little speaker outside so when you are watching the projector from the hot tub you can then hear it... all little things really
hope to come back soon!!!
Sunset loft is a fantastic holiday apartment. We stayed with 4 adults and 4 children aged 10 mths - 3. The apartment is clean and designed very well. Our children were safe at all times and the facilities were great. The hot tub on the outdoor roof terrace was brilliant as was the giant cinema projector tv. Also the tv had sky plus with movies !!!
The kitchen was very modern with everything you would want. Whitstable is a great place with great shops and places to eat. We will come back again in the future
also the welcome pack of wine fresh orange popcorn coffee fresh bread etc is a lovely touch.
5 star holiday apartment
Stress free family break
I'm a nightmare staying away from home very particular about the way things should be, have to admit even by my high standards we loved the apartment a few things could of been better but it has an ambience all of it's own which completely won me over.
Would def re-book!!!
Unsurpassed quality in every way!
This is my second stay at Sunset Loft, following an equally wonderful experience at Honey Cottage a year or so before. The quality, comfort and decor of the Loft were exceptional, and I loved the general layout of the property too.
It was inexplicably tranquil despite being within the bustle of a town, but at the same time it meant that we were in walking distance of just about every amenity we could possibly need for a stress-free holiday. We certainly didn't want for anything at the Loft itself, but its location meant we could go shopping, dining or even get a sneaky pizza without going near the car (which, for people who enjoy a lunchtime glass of wine or two, is a big bonus!). I also have a childhood-induced love of the sea, so being able to wander down for a quick breath every day was wonderful (it was well worth the wind-blown hair afterwards!).
Ultimately we would find it hard not to pick the Loft or another of the Kent Cottage Holidays properties over any other hot tub break. The only thing that prevents us from immediately booking with KCH every time we need an holiday is their extreme popularity! The evil part of me wonders if I should lie in my review in the hope that it'll free up more slots, but if anything it just makes it even more special when we do visit.
I don't know how the property is kept in such good order, but please keep going! As a shout-out to other nearby businesses who made our stay even better, I highly recommend the Pearsons arms in Whitstable (a 5 minute taxi ride from the Loft) for fantastic seafood (with very unusual beers - chocolate?!) and the best view of a Kent sunset you'll ever see, UK weather permitting. Also the Crab & Winkle a stone's throw down the beach from Pearsons - fine dining overlooking the boats that caught your dinner.

Very Relaxing - loved the hot tub!
We have just returned from a wonderful relaxing weekend in the sunset loft. The apartment was very clean, tidy and modern, with lovely touches made by the owners such as breakfast, wine and popcorn left for us to enjoy! The hot tub was a perfect way to unwind. The only shortcoming of Sunset Loft was the location - it was very noisy outside on the high street on the Friday night. However this didn't detract from our enjoyment of the weekend and we would definitely visit again.
Fantastic, comfortable stay...would highly recommend!
We went for a getaway weekend to relax and eat great food. We arrived at the lodge, it was very close to the station (the cab was only £3!). The accommodation was clean, luxurious and spacious! We loved the hot tub and the projector screen (such as treat!). It was very convenient for getting to Whistable centre (15 min walk). All in all a fab place...we will be back with friends!

Lovely apartment in Whitstable
Excellent quality apartment situated in a great location. Facilities, most notably the huge cinema screen and hot tub were awesome. Tv's with DVD player in bedroom also great. Kitchen facilities very good, everything included. Little suprise at the beginning withthe hamper and goodies, put a smile on both our faces..thanks alot!! Would recommend to families and couples as facilities make it very romantic.
great communication, lovely location highly recommend
Perfect for a crawling/cruising baby and dog!
We had a great time in Tankerton. The Loft was very clean which is really important when you've got a crawling baby trying to eat every thing she can see on the floor! Apart from three stairs which our aughter loved to practice on all on one level. Stairgate and travel cot provided at no extra cost. Perfect for dogs as mostly laminate flooring. Good for couples as hot tub to chill out in once everyone is asleep. Perfect location. Tankerton has everything you would need shop wise to self cater but still remains charming. Whitstable and Herne Bay within easy walking distance. Canterbury just down the road for history and great shopping! Good little find! Would certainly recommend.
Highly recommended accommodation
In very convenient location Sunset Loft is beautifully decorated with everything needed for a very comfortable and enjoyable stay.
A perfect weekend...
I booked Sunset Loft for my brother's stag do, and it was the ideal place. Walking in we were all impressed, and loved the 96" screen in the lounge! Watching Total Wipeout in the hot tub was something I never thought I'd do... fabulous. The flat itself is modern, clean, warm and very spacious, with a well equipped kitchen, comfy sofas and a great roof terrace with a gas BBQ which we used Friday night. There are a couple of golf courses nearby, and we went clay pigeon shooting Saturday morning which was fabulous fun. All in all the weekend couldn't have gone better. Thanks to Michelle for making the booking process so very simple, and for the lovely email I received only a few hours after leaving thanking us for our stay. I would heartily recommend this place to anyone looking for either a quiet, romantic weekend away or with a group of friends for a chilled, fun weekend. Thanks again!
We entered Sunset Loft from a very cold Whitstable into warm and cosy surroundings. The apartment was immaculately clean. The fresh flowers were a great touch for someone who loves fresh flowers! The bed was very comfortable, we slept very well. The decor is modern without being cold. The living room wall size TV was something we had never before experienced - almost like our own cinema. All mod cons in the kitchen and all immaculate. The best thing was the hot tub which we loved - a great relaxing asset!
Michelle kept us up to date with all the booking experience and we have no complaints here.
There is a bus outside to either Whitstable (less than 1 mile I think) or Herne Bay (about 5 miles). We visited museums in both towns. Ate well at Sunday lunch at the Lobster shack, which was reasonable value. Canterbury is close by and full of places to visit - the Cathedral is expensive but well worth it.
All in all a great weekend.
christmas without family stress
We stayed here with our 3 teens and a baby, there was enough space for every one. We liked the hot tub very much. The kitchen is very well equipped, we prepared our Christmas dinner !The loft is very clean, beds are good. Near the beach, must be fantastic in summer!!

Excellent relaxing retreat
What an excellent place to stay. Lovely, clean, spacious and well presented flat. Owners were very helpfulland communication was fantastic. Will definately be booking again, and look forward to visiting there other locations
The Caple Family
On arrival to the apartment, it was a lovely welcome to find a very nice 'Welcome Hamper', and lovely bottle of wine to wind down with after the journey.
The apartment was exceptionally well laid out with modern, clean decor, and very well equipped.
The Hot Tub was great, the girls liked the fact that they could watch the large projector screen tv through the window whilst bathing.
The location was great, especially with children. lots of little shops, restaurants and takeaways, just outside the door.
Just across the road the seafront and beach, lovely to have somewhere so handy to walk the dogs.
We had a lovely, relaxing weekend and we will be returning as soon as we can, hopefully for longer.

Wonderfull Whitstable apartment
The service provided by Michelle was second to none. The apartment was spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable. Everything we needed was provided in the apartment. The location was perfect. We walked along the seafront to Whitstable and walked back along the main road, this only took about twenty minutes, the hot tub took away any tiredness. All in all "perfect"
Michelle and Chris were incredibly helpful from the moment of booking. I received confirmation of my booking very quickly along with a detailed and very useful brochure of the apartment and surrounding area. This was especially useful for booking recommended restauarants as a number of them book up quite a few weeks in advance. They also responded very quickly to any follow up questions via email before our stay.
Apart from the excellent and friendly service the apartment itself was lovely, very clean and very well equipt. The bed in particular was very comfortable. Regarding location, it is only a short walk to Whitsable, we went out for dinner there and didn't fancy driving (so we could have a few drinks) and a cab was only £3.
Overall I'd have no reservations recommending this apartment.
Great Whitstable apartment
This was a great apartment for our holiday and made a great base for exploring the northeast of Kent. The apartment was very modern and well equipped and everything was very clean and comfortable. It's also fairly spacious for a holiday apartment. It had all the amenities you could ask for - the projection TV was especially nice. It was also close to shops, Atms, a nice pub, and the seafront. We would definitely stay here again.
Sunset Loft - Thanks Michelle!
The welcome pack on arrival was greatly appreciated. The bedrooms were great, the only element of the accommodation that we all thought could improve was the sofa in the living room. Overall a great place to stay.
Loved the Loft
Stayed here on a short break and really enjoyed it. The Loft is so comfortable and you feel at home straight away. Everything you should need is in the Loft from Sky+ Box to the hot tub! Michelle and Chris were both really helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend and stay here again without hesitation.
Blown away by the Experience
The apartment was nothing but excellence!
Everything right down to the little details had been carefully thought about. Decorated in a contemporary style and yet very homely - the apartment had everything, from a gorgeous lounge to a kitchen that was beautiful, very functional and equipped with a luxurious coffee machine (very nice way to start the day indeed), which went hand in hand with the coffee and other treats in our welcome hamper - that left us feeling valued and spoilt.
The owners were very helpful and went the extra mile to ensure our stay was the best it could be for our time away.
Would highly recommend it to anyone, and would ask that you look after it during your stay as we will defiantly be going back.
Spotless apartment at which is well decorated and equipped. Welcome pack very thoughtful.
The hot tub was lovely after a hot day in the sun and the Cinema-style TV was relaxing too.
Comfortable and convenient accommodation in a gem of a town.
The Loft is a great place to stay. We stayed with 5 adults and 4 kids and its was ideal, we ate out on the terrace mornings and evenings and when the kids were in bed enjoyed ourt sundowners there. Shops, pubs are all just minutes away. Good takeways all nearby. Harbour fish market about 20 mins walk. The restaurant above the market is super for fishfood lovers wishing to eat in style.
Wheelers fish restaurant in Whitstable High Street is another excellent address.
We stayed here for a few days and July and made great use of the BBQ and Hot tub. The apt had everything you could possibly need and is ideally situated for access to shops/ beach etc... Will definately return or maybe even upgarde to one of the sister properties. Great welcome basket too!

Sunset Loft was the perfect place to stay during the Whitstable Oyster Festival this summer. The rooms were beautifully clean and airy and the hot tub was fantastic, although, sadly, we didn’t discover the underwater disco lights until right at the end of the weekend!
Highlights of the festival were definitely the Morris dancing and beer festival. But if you’re visiting at a different time of year, we would particularly recommend the Crab and Winkle seafood restaurant on the harbour and the Pearsons Arms, just round the corner.

Lovely very spacious apartment, very well fitted out with all the modern conveniences and the luxury comforts too. Sky + made the stay very relaxing!

Mid Week Break
We had a lovely break at sunset loft. The weather was fabulous which meant we could really enjoy the great location close to Tankerton Beach and Whitstable. The apartment was comfortable and spotlessly clean with lovely touches like sparkling wine and essentials provided for our arrival. Our only issue was the traffic noise (mostly in the front bedrooms) from the road outside; it normally died down by 11pm. The road is not too busy and this was not a massive issue but it did take a little bit of getting used to.
This was a much needed holiday and we had a fantastic time. The hottub was fantastic, even if it was chilly outside it didn't matter. the appartment is so nice we spent a few days just staying there, watching movies on the 96 inch projector screen which was fab! handy butchers only a minutes walk away for meat for a bbq, and tesco for everyday needs.
I for one would love to come again!
Spotlessly clean, really well decorated apartment with finishing touches such as the hot tub and extra large TV screen which you rarely see offered in other self catering facilities.
Fully complemented with fresh flowers and a welcome basket of goodies.
Great location - easy beach walk into Whitstable and Tesco metro for your wine and pringles!
Would recommend / book again
fantastic relaxing and romantic time
We stayed here for a weekend in June as a surprise for my partners 30th and what a great weekend it was we had a truely amazing time. We felt very much at home and cosy. The hot tub was superb and very romantic at night looking at the stars. The bed was extremley comfortable and we did not want to come home after a very relaxing and refreshing stay. We took a lovely walk to the beach and the shops we also had some great meals in the tapas and a french style resturant. We will most definatley come back again and hopefully very soon. Michelle was great and made our stay perfect x
Weekend of sun
Thanks so much Michelle. We had a great time at sunset loft, the welcome basket and flowers were lovely. The terrace, hot tub and gas BBQ were amazing. We had a fantastic seafood feast as the fish markets are just a walk away. I would recommend sunset loft and will definitely be returning.
Blissful Birthday Stay
My boyfriend and I stayed in Sunset Loft for my recent birthday. The whole stay was completely blissful. We enjoyed sunsets on the beach, walks down the coast both east and west, lovely fresh scallops from Whitstable fish market but couldn't stay away from the flat too long as it was just so comfortable and everything you could possibly want for a relaxing short or long break. The hot tub was immense and although it rained on my birthday we still managed to get some tub time! Thank you for a brilliant stay, we hope it won't be too long until we can return.
Sunset Loft Review
Absolutely nothing but rave reviews to follow here, thanks to Michelle and Chris keeping such a beautiful apartment in the perfect location. The quality, comfort and decor of the Loft was exceptional, and is probably in the most convenient location of any hot tub holiday my partner and I have been on previously. Being in the bustle of a small seaside town, you would expect the Loft to be a less tranquil spot than other more remote holiday homes, but you couldn't be more wrong. It was in fact very tranquil on the balcony (some nights eerily so, when all you could hear was the far off cry of a seagull!), but at the same time the location meant that we were in walking distance of just about every amenity we could possibly need for a stress-free holiday. We could stock up on our groceries, experience fine dining (try the Crab & Winkle or Pearson's Arms in Whitstable - well worth it) or even get a sneaky take-away without going near the car. It was also a real treat to be a short walk from the sea, what with us being thoroughly land-locked at home. I don't know how Michelle and Chris keep their properties to such a high standard (Honey Cottage is in the same premier league), but I hope they keep it going!
