Hello, I'm Sam, an architect and university lecturer based between Margate and Leicester, so my flat is often empty for you to stay in and help keep my plants watered! I hope you enjoy your time in Margate.

We had a lovely stay in Margate! Sam's house was right in the middle of the most quaint and bustling part of Margate. The house was furnished very well and we enjoyed all of the lovely art and plants. The instructions and communication from Sam was prompt and efficient. We were welcomed with crumpets and chocolate easter bunnies which were a lovely surprise!
One of the beds is a futon on the floor so would bear this in mind when booking. The bath doesn't have a curtain so you have to sit when showering. These are minor points in what was otherwise a thoroughly enjoyable stay!
Would highly recommend :)
Sam's place is charming, warm and clean.
To concur with Liv, the last guest, it is a bit of a shame there's no proper shower or indeed a curtain or screen, and the hot water is pretty temperamental, although this last point is flagged up in the house notes.
We really enjoyed our stay and the flat is brilliantly located in the heart of town. We did find this a bit of a double-edged sword, as despite being fabulously central, it meant it was pretty noisy at night, especially in the main bedroom which is above a bar and restaurant. If you're coming in late, that's fine, but it's not great if you've got little ones.
Sam was super communicative and very understanding when we accidently and rather absent-mindedly drove off with his spare set of keys back to London.
Thank you, Sam!
A great apartment - spacious, stylish, comfortable and well equipped. The starter pack of food in the fridge was very helpful and welcoming.
Lots of good restaurants are a few minutes walk away and parking is easy in nearby Trinity Square.
All of this added up to a relaxed long weekend in Margate. Sam's place was an excellent choice - and I'd make the same choice again next time!
An amazing flat with great design and cosy feel,
In the best location for all of the best things to do and see in Margate.
Very quick responsive hosts and left lots of info about margate. I highly recommend this place !!
Sam's apartment was absolutely perfect. Very spacious and beautifully decorated. The location was ideal. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Our time in Margate was wonderful. Sam's flat is gorgeous, beautifully decorated, modest and comfortable. There isn't a television and there are lots of books which we really enjoyed. Whilst it was cold outside it was very warm in the flat, and Sam left us some basic foods and drinks on arrival which was a really nice touch. We would definitely stay here again.
We had a lovely weekend in Sam's apartment. His directions to the flat couldn't have been clearer and the place was very tastefully furnished and sparkling clean. The location was also just as described, near the cutest bits of Margate with easy access to the Turner museum and the beach, as well as the Viking Trail along the coast.
Arriving at Sam's flat after a lengthy journey was a delight - easy to find, fantastic location in the heart of Margate old town and beautifully appointed with a mixture of retro and antique furniture. Food in the fridge too - thanks Sam! Sam's flat is unique - really suited us for a winter break - Relaxed ambience, well appointed and clearly cared for with quirky touches to both delight and inspire. The flat is in an area of Margate that (only just) survived 1960's 'modernisation'. There is a real renaissance going on in the Old Town area with good places to eat and browse but straying out of the old town quickly reminds you how Margate - like many other seaside towns - has suffered economically. For a short break it was great. For a longer stay we would have wanted to travel farther afield. So, great place, great location, great host. Thanks Sam - thoroughly recommended.
We had an amazing time in Sam's apartment! The place is stylish, beautifully decorated, inviting and cosy. It's location is great, less than a couple of minutes from the sea side, restaurants bars and do on. Sam was a great host, friendly, accommodating, left us breakfast on the fridge. I would thoroughly
recommend this place, perfect for a weekend brake! Sitron
We really enjoyed our two night stay in Sam's beautiful apartment.
As many of the other reviews have mentioned, it was lovely that Sam had left some breakfast food & juice, and welcomed us with a note.
The apartment is very light and airy - lovely plants & elegantly furnished.
It was my first time using Air BnB and I had lots of questions - Sam responded to emails very promptly and was kind and generous towards us, and let us check out an hour late.
Also given that I managed to spill a drink on a rug an hour before leaving - he was very understanding when I let him know!
Margate Old Town is quiet - we didn't really notice the noise from the brassiere downstairs from the apartment at all.
Very much enjoyed seeing a show at the Turner Contemporary. Great evening meal and cosy atmosphere at BeBeached on the Harbour Arm.
We also made a couple of meals at Sam's apartment too.
Sam and his friends were very confortable guests. They did respect the home roules in every way and they left everything in a very tidy condition. I can recommend Sam, and of course his friends, to every other host!
They have been 2 friendly and kind guests. We have been glad to host them and to give them our suggestions during their stay. We hope to see them again!
Sam is a very kind person, a perfect guest. A discreet presence. a real pleasure to meet him and Carlos
Gentile silenzioso riservato, ospite perfetto
Nice and kind couple . Made quick reservation but the communication was great ! The apartment was clean.. I recommend !
Thanks Sam and Carlos!
Sam was really nice, gently and taked care of the apartament very well. Can come back any time.
Sam is straight forward and very honest.
It was a pleasure to have you as guests! Thank you very much!
Sam and his guests were no trouble at all, I never actually met Sam but his friend was easy to get along with.
It was just a short stay but I'd be happy to have them back.
