Just some of the reviews from our fantastic Beach Escapers...

“Thank you very much for the use of the Admiral’s Deck. We had a wonderful time and found the apartment to have everything that we required. The attention to detail in the fittings and decor is exceptional and we noted the number of passers by that stopped to look up at the house, some even took photos. It certainly is an eye catcher; you should be very proud of your achievements.

Jim & Shani – May 2023

“Everything was as described, if not better! Fantastically equipped with absolutely everything you could need.”

Melanie – April 2023

“This accommodation is just wonderful! It’s very tastefully decorated, the kitchen is well equipped and the location is stunning – we walked from our apartment straight onto the beach.

The owners have gone out of their way to ensure attention to detail. The welcome hamper was amazing. We was sorry to be leaving!

A perfect room. The layout was fantastic, with a great little space for our dog – there were even treats and dog bags. Not to mention a lovely dog bed!

Lisa – March 2023

“Sophie was interactive right from the start and ensured our stay was as comfortable as possible. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a wonderful view of the sea from the bedroom (where we could also people-watch!) and the apartment itself was modern, well equipped, and very tastefully decorated. Also only a short walk to the centre so very convenient.”

Janet – March 2023

“The apartment was amazing, beautifully furnished and provided everything for an enjoyable stay.

David – March 2023

“The property was extremely clean and well-equipped. The small gestures of gratitude went a long way and Sophie was extremely helpful over the phone.”

Jackie – March 2023

“Just had the most wonderful weekend at the Beach Escapes! It was a stunning getaway!

The environment was relaxing and enjoyable! Can’t wait to come back with the family!”

Jodie – March 2023

“We had an amazing, relaxing three-night stay at the Beach Escapes. We previously stayed when it was the Bed and Breakfast and were very impressed with the conversion to self-contained apartments. Sophie was the perfect host. The accommodation was fitted out to a high standard and the rooms were all very clean with amazing sea views. There was a lovely welcome pack on arrival including eggs, croissants, butter etc. Will definitely stay again!”

Liz – March 2023

“We have stayed three times so far this year at the Beach Escapes apartments and visited several times when it was the BnB. The apartments are beautifully appointed and spacious, and Sophie & John are great hosts. Very attentive and no ask is too big. The accommodation is nicely laid out and our favourite room is the one at the top with great views, lovely balcony where you can watch the world go by even in December!”

Kate – December 2022

ExceptionalThis place is amazing!! We really enjoyed the time there, felt like home. We have stayed in a lot of apartments but this one is definitely the best. Very well decorated, clean, the room was big and with a nice bed, the kitchen was amazing and that balcony… Wonderful!! The staff were great. They sent all the instructions we needed, and it worked really well

Daniel – September 2022

“We both loved it and wish we could’ve stayed longer than a weekend. Food hamper was lovely and not expected, made our breakfast for the next morning. Location was perfect. We will definitely stay again.

Nicola – November 2022

Beautiful, nicely decorated, very well-equipped clean apartment at amazing location. Hosts are extremely helpful & lovely. Outside area is spacious & overlooking the beach.

Lucie – September 2022

Perfect place to stay! Very nice rooms, excellent breakfast of eggs and croissants, great view and very friendly owners. Just the perfect place by the sea – rooms are really clean and the bed was very comfy. It really has everything you need… I have travelled a lot and it’s in my top 3 places to stay!

Dave – October 2022 

“Great location, accommodation and welcome. We stayed in Captain’s Cabin and really enjoyed our stay.”

M. Marsh – August 2022

“We had a fantastic time whilst staying at the Admiral’s Deck. A wonderfully appointed apartment, in a great location with the balcony and views of the beach/sea.”

R. Allen – August 2022

“My partner and I had a lovely 5-day break in Captain’s Cabin in July this year. The apartment was very well laid out with every need catered for and the location is unbeatable. We spent many a relaxing hour sipping wine on the patio watching the world go by and listening to the relaxing sound of the sea. Taking a dip could not have been easier. There is a Waitrose within a very pleasant 5-minute walk along the military canal and the town is equally close. There are also very easy promenade walks to Sandgate and on to Folkestone. A perfect spot and a lovely apartment, we definitely plan to go back.”

G. Smith – August 2022

“Amazing place to stay in – extremely clean and very well-designed apartment. We stayed in Captain’s Cabin, which had a full sea view and direct access to the beach. The kitchen is fully equipped, as if you are at home. There is a sharing pantry where you can use spices, seasoning, dressings, cooking oil, etc. We also enjoyed a barbeque in the outside seating area. They even had a box with charcoal and barbeque sticks ready for use. There is a cabinet filled with magazines, children story books and games like cards, monopoly, chess, etc. plus a free parking space. Highly recommended; it is better than a 5-star hotel with a sea view.”

D. Elmebayed – September 2022

“Sophie was very helpful and accommodating from start to finish. We stayed in the Captain’s Cabin apartment and honestly couldn’t have asked for any more than was provided. The quality of the apartment’s finish was outstanding and luxurious! Absolutely first class. The peaceful and ‘on the beach’ location is perfect and very relaxing. We will definitely be back – thank you so much!”

K. Cockburn – September 2022

“The apartment was perfect and as this was a gift to my sister, I could not have been happier with the quality of everything that you provided. Her family thoroughly enjoyed their stay and if we have any future guests, I won’t hesitate to recommend your apartments.”

A – July 2022 

“We have just returned from a truly wonderful weekend, celebrating our Wedding Anniversary, at The Beach Escapes. We were absolutely thrilled to be the first guests to visit and stay. The Beach Escapes offers luxury accommodation built to a very high standard. The views are spectacular. Can’t recommend it enough and would give it five stars without hesitation. Sophie and Jon are so welcoming. We didn’t want to come home and we will be back.”

J. Fentiman, May 2022

“We really enjoyed our stay at The Beach Escapes. The apartments are lovely and have been tastefully refurbished to a very high standard. Jon and Sophie made us feel very welcome, and were happy to answer any questions we had regarding what amenities were available in Hythe. We would highly recommend the apartments for a relaxing stay in Hythe.”

S. Burke, June 2022

“Dear Sophie and Jon, thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment. It somehow managed to combine luxury, practicality, and a sense of calm. You were both excellent hosts (there when needed and left us be.) The garden areas were perfect for our two dogs and that made our stay more relaxing. We would definitely recommend. We had a fantastic mini break and will be back.”

N. Hessell, May 2022

Perfect in every way. Best apartment we have ever stayed in. Every need has been considered and every item of high quality. The welcome hamper was a lovely bonus. We were sorry to leave! 


“This was our second visit to The Beach Escapes and equally as enjoyable as the first. The apartment was clean and well equipped, it even has a Nespresso machine. Sophie & Jon provided an excellent welcome pack to help get the holiday started.
There is an allocated parking space for each apartment which makes arrival a whole lot easier. In fact they have thought of everything that one may need on a short break!

The outside seating areas are well kept and there is easy access to the promenade and beach. Hythe town centre is a ten-minute walk with many interesting shops and a Waitrose Supermarket. This is a superb venue with character and charm, run by a family that care about their guests.

John – April 2023

“Beach Escapes would have to be the most welcoming place we have ever stayed.

We are Australians and travel extensively. Little touches make you feel welcome and at a home away from home. The apartment is well provided with everything and more that you need. It is an easy drive to many attractions including Dover Castle and Canterbury Cathedral.

We would happily stay here again. Highly recommended.

Geoff – February 2023

“Sublime is how I would describe the accommodation and sea views at The Beach Escapes in Hythe. My husband and I were blown away by the stylish coastal-themed interior and the mesmeric English Channel views from The Admiral’s Deck penthouse apartment. Watching the sun set and rise from the balcony was a dream come true. It was a perfect place to unwind and reconnect with nature. Anyone who loves the sea will also love The Beach Escapes. 

The apartment has everything you could need and more for a comfortable stay. We were glad to be able to park in The Beach Escapes’ car park and to be in such close proximity to Hythe’s high street, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and leisure facilities. As keen walkers, we enjoyed walking to arty Folkestone and back, roaming on the dramatic shingle beach at Dungeness, visiting the charming RSPB reserve, discovering Hastings’ seafaring history and exploring beautiful Hythe. It was also a pleasure to sit and read in the warmth and comfort of the apartment where the sea presents an ever-changing palette of colours ranging from deepest blue to vibrant orange at sunset. The Beach Escapes is a stunning place for a holiday, and we highly recommend it.

Ingrid – February 2023

“Just returned from a three-night stay in Admiral’s Deck. Impressive, well-appointed, and very comfortable apartment. Such a great location and amazing views. Would most definitely stay again.

Teressa – February 2023

“If you are thinking of staying at The Beach Escapes then just do it. It’s the most stunning venue and the apartments are of such high quality.

There is also so much to do and fabulous local restaurants. I will definitely be booking again.”

Sam – December 2022

We had a fantastic stay in the apartment and will definitely be back 

Everything. This property is amazing and contains everything you need to enjoy your stay. the apartment is fitted out with high quality furnishings and fittings. The location next to the beach is fantastic and the hosts included some essentials in the kitchen so that our stay got off to a great start. Sophie is a fantastic host and so welcoming.

Neville – September 2022

Perfect relaxation after a long days drive up through France, many thanks! We found this property by looking for places near the Eurotunnel. Everything was perfect and we had a beautiful walk around the town. Very attentive text contact from owner, despite short notice.

Simon – September 2022

“An amazing apartment! It was spotless, modern and extremely comfortable. A fantastic location too. 10 out of 10!”

R. Woodford – August 2022

“Everything far exceeded our expectations, amazing location, comfortable cosy accommodation, place to chill, excellent facilities – in fact we are returning before the summer ends. ”

B. Cooper – August 2022

“We had an absolutely amazing 4-day holiday thanks to the team at Beach Escapes. The accommodation was superb and comes so easy to recommend!”

R. Woodford – August 2022

“You will not find a better host than Sophie, I texted Sophie Friday morning to see if she had any availability, as all our plans for my hubby’s birthday had to change overnight due to the queen passing. We stayed in the Admiral’s Deck, the penthouse – it is faultless. The decor is so cute and just works all together, you can see the love that has gone in to making this feel like a home. The honesty pantry is a brilliant idea; everything you need has either been provided or you can find it in the honesty pantry. The welcome book is filled with wonderful ideas. Most definitely go to the Lazy Shack for their famous scallops and bacon, it was so good. We explored Hythe and Folkestone and took a lot of ideas from the welcome book on what to do and places to eat. In the apartment the bed is huge and so comfortable – the space in this apartment is well thought out. Beach towels and bath towels provided. Everything you need to cook with is provided, plus a Smart TV, Alexa and free wifi are also provided. I also loved the binoculars – heavy to hold but what a great idea to look out as far as you can! I’m so grateful for Sophie and all that she did and her beautiful beach apartment!”

K. O’Brien – September 2022

“Excellent and very comfortable well eqipped self catering accommodation on Hythe seafront. Amazing views, easy walking to town, local cafes and restaurants close by. Good parking and excellent facilities and very secure. The owners have thought of everything. Quiet location.”

A. Philpott – September 2022

“It had been a wonderful holiday for us all at the Beach Escapes with three generations together! 
The location was perfect for water sports and for the children to play on the beach.  The apartments were superbly decorated and comfortable.  Having the Gull’s Rest Terrace and Stone Throw’s gardens were perfect for us for family meals. 
 We certainly will come back the The Beach Escapes for a family holiday again soon.”

O. Dawson – August 2022

“We stayed at the beach escapes for the weekend after our wedding. We live in Australia and although I am originally from Hythe, it felt like a proper holiday from the moment we checked in and we felt really relaxed. We stayed in Gulls Rest which meant we had a lot of outdoor space, which was fantastic to enjoy the beach views while having a drink. Sophie is a fantastic host and went above and beyond to make sure we had a good stay. The apartment was beautiful and all of the finishing touches including the communal pantry and games are great. Thank you for a wonderful stay.”

C. Johnston, June 2022

“I wanted to put pen to paper to thank you for such a wonderful stay at your incredibly lovely apartment. It was far bigger than we had expected and decorated to such a high standard. Absolutely beautiful throughout. Having the large bedroom, two loos and a double sofa bed worked out really well as a family space and the corridor divides the rooms nicely. Lots of natural light as well. The two decks were perfect to sit out and lovely for the dogs; and so very private. Amazing to be able to walk straight up onto the beach promenade from our deck! The kitchen had everything we could have needed. Your kind hamper such a nice touch. And it was fantastic we could raid the larder with the honesty box for extras we had forgotten like marmite etc! Great joy to be able to park right outside.”

J.Thomson, June 2022

“I booked my parents 4 nights in Captains Cabin, one of the promenade level apartments. Sophie met us when we arrived and was so nice and helpful. The apartment was absolutely lovely and catered for all your needs. It was great for my parents, who are in their 80’s, as they could walk out of the apartment onto the seafront plus the town centre and canal aren’t too far to walk to. I asked my mum if she had any comments and she said one word….. excellent. Thank you Sophie, my parents had a great time in Hythe.”
