Wonderful place to stay for a quiet holiday so near to the seafront. The house is well equipped and modern but very comfortable. It is positioned off the road with ample private parking. The sea is at the bottom of the road and the shops a few minutes walk away.
We regularly have self catering holidays and rate this one as excellent for all the facilities and it is very clean.
We were visiting family in Ramsgate and chose to rent this property in Broadstairs as a trial, having always stayed in B&B's or hotels on previous visits. As three adults sharing a four bedroom house with three bathrooms between us, it was ideal, spacious, with all the facilities we could wish for, very well equipped with appliances, utensils etc.
We were very impressed at the attention to detail with fresh milk in the fridge on arrival, bottle of sparkling wine, crisps, tea and coffee, several items in the larder, all the cleaning materials if we needed them. We had brought these things with us but need not have bothered! (Couldn't find any egg cups though!) Great to have the very large TV in the lounge. Also the WiFi Internet access which installed instantly without fuss, unlike other systems we have used elsewhere.
The beds were comfortable with good quality mattresses. Only thing missed in three of the four bedrooms were wardrobes, although all had a hanging rail, we missed being able to keep our things tidy and out of sight.
The shower in the wet room upstairs was difficult to use as water was not draining away quickly enough, and the area is too small to dry yourself. Fortunately there was a choice of another two showers downstairs which were fine. People with limited mobility would have trouble getting up and down the narrow open tread stairs and when using the wet room.
We particularly liked the location which is at the end of a private driveway, no traffic noise, not overlooked, even though there are other houses around it. It is only a few minutes walk down (but up hill on the return) from everything the town has to offer and the cliff top path at the end of the road. We loved Osteria Posillipo Italian restaurant in Broadstairs, highly recommend it.
It is obvious Redwood is geared towards families as the play room is a great idea, overflowing with things for kids to do even if the weather is bad. It makes an extra sitting room for adults too. The house is in very good condition and we hope other visitors will continue to treat it with the respect it deserves.
It would be a good idea to have prior knowledge of access, particularly to the first floor, for people with disabilities.
