A beautiful home you will never forget



"I have just returned home after a fabulous, relaxing long weekend at Kiora on Tankerton beach with seven of friends. Kiora is a beautiful house overlooking the sea. The house has a lovely feel and is decorated to a very high standard. We lit the fire (that was already built for us), played the piano and cooked meals. I was very impressed at how well equipped the kitchen is and at the quality of the furnishings, beds and linen. The owner Jez, is also a lovely guy and very accommodating. I would definitely recommend to my friends and hope to be able to return soon myself. "Camilla

"We stayed at Kiora to celebrate my Mother's 60th birthday. The place was simply magic from the beginning to the end of the week end. Our host Jez was very nice and welcoming, taking care of every detail. Whitstable is also a lovely town with very nice pubs and restaurant. The seaside is beautiful and the house is simply ideally situated, large enough for 8 people... we played piano, had great dinners and great time with family and friends! Thank you very much for making this weekend so special." Zac

"My family and I have just returned from a weeks stay at Kiora. What a wonderful home this is. Perfectly situated overlooking the beach & only a short walk into Whitstable this 4 bedroom property is well equipped, comfy & very homely. A new favourite place to stay without doubt. It may cost a little more but I think worth every penny. A gem." Martyn



Accommodation Details

This fabulous and unique 4 bedroom detached house has bags of seaside charm and is located right on the beach overlooking The Street at Tankerton Beach next to Beacon House. The house enjoys extensive sea views and offers a rare opportunity to stay in one of the most enviable locations in Whitstable.

The house is only a short walk along the beach to the Harbour with its fish markets and cafe and a 15 minute walk to Harbour Street with its bustling shops and restaurants.

Ground Floor:
This pretty house is approached by foot or car along Tankerton Promenade. Steps lead from the promenade up to the beautiful covered porch and the entrance to the hallway.

The house offers very comfortable and spacious accommodation. It has stripped wooded floors upstairs and downstairs and has been simply decorated and furnished throughout. What gives this house its unique charm, is that every window at the front of the house brings in streams of light and frames the perfect picture sea scape. 

The hallway leads to the traditional kitchen/breakfast room at the rear of the house which is fully equipped with dishwasher, microwave, fridge, freezer, electric oven and gas hob, large larder cupboard and wood burner. There is also a small pine kitchen table and 4 chairs.

Doors then lead through to the dining room with its Ercol dining table and 8 chairs, sea views and an extensive library of books and games for your enjoyment during your stay.  

The lounge offers a charming space to relax and enjoy the open fire in the winter, or the sun streaming through the windows in the summer. The lounge is furnished with two 3 seat sofas, 2 occasional chairs, TV with DVD player and a baby grand piano! There are French doors leading to patio and garden.

The bathroom is located on the ground floor and has a bath with overhead shower, basin and wc. There is an additional wc adjacent to the bathroom.

There is a downstairs bedroom for those with mobility issues. The bedroom overlooks the pretty garden and is furnished with a super-king bed, built in wardrobe, bedside table and corner wash basin.

There is a lovely garden to the side of the house where you can relax in the sunshine or enjoy alfresco dining. The uniqueness of Kiora is its direct access to the beautiful Tankerton beach and Street and its stunning sunsets.

First Floor:
There are two spacious double bedrooms on the first floor. The west bedroom enjoys extensive sea views and is furnished with a king size bed, built in wardrobe, large pine wardrobe with full length mirror,  chest of drawers, bedside tables with lamps and a wash basin.

The double bedroom on the east side is again a very spacious room with extensive sea views and is furnished with a super-king size bed, built in wardrobe, chest of drawers, bedside tables and lamps and a corner wash basin.

There is a small twin room, again with extensive sea views and furnished with two 3' single beds, built in wardrobe, chest of drawers and a corner wash basin.
