  • We had a wonderful few days in Deal with Sue and Paul. They welcomed us and made us feel completely at home in their comfortable and cosy place. Huge selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurts, and freshly made bread every morning for the buffet breakfast (included). They thought of everything and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely couple – we love Deal and hope to go back to stay next year.

    March 2014
  • We were very impressed with our first stay using Airbnb and will be recommending both using Airbnb and staying with Sue & Paul in Deal. They were very welcoming and had equipped the double room with all sorts of extras as you'd get in a good quality hotel. Breakfast was also full of choices. We felt very at home.

  • Sue and Paul are very hospitable and lovely, our one night stay at their place was perfect, the room was cosy, they were very welcoming and friendly, altogether a great experience and highly recommended! Deal is a sweet town, and Kings Head was a great recommendation (of Paul's) for a good steak.

    December 2013
  • Sue and Paul are fabulous hosts and go the extra mile to make your stay perfect. The room is lovely and the house is only a short walk into town and the cute pubs! We visited to do the walk from Dover along the cliffs to Deal which is recommended. Excellent weekend away!

    October 2013
  • Sue and Paul let us stay at their charming house in Deal, Kent. The room that we stayed was very clean, fully equipped with all the amenities and attention to detail (teddy bear welcoming us on the bed which was very appealing to my girlfriend).
    In the morning we had an excellent breakfast with home baked bread ( you will find this only in 5 star hotels).
    We warmly recommend staying with Sue and Paul if you happen to be visiting SE England, cliffs of Dover etc.

    October 2013
  • We found the accommodation clean, very comfortable and well equipped. The host Paul was friendly and helpful even though we were late arriving. The bonus of parking outside the house was great and secure. Good selection of cereal, fruit, juices for breakfast. We would definitely stay again, and investigate more the lovely sea front and traditional town of Deal.

I am early retired from full-time work as a University administrator and I relocated from Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire to Deal, Kent in September 2010 with my husband Paul. I now have time to do the things I enjoy such as walking, cycling, yoga, voluntary work, reading, theatre, etc., and letting a room in our lovely house is such an interesting venture, meeting people from around the world who want to visit our town. I am a friendly, sociable and easy-going person and enjoy meeting and helping other people.
