"Great communication from the team at Keepers Cottages. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the heart of Deal with our greyhound. Visited many times before and this property is right in the heart of town with bars, restaurants, and the beach within a few minutes walk. Perfect for our dog with a secure, fully enclosed rear garden and the high street is just at the bottom of the road. Comfortable and warm with well equipped kitchen and upstairs and downstairs w.c. Parking is always at a premium but we managed easily between street parking across the road and parking on the sea front. A great place to stay!"

"We have rented a holiday home through Keepers cottage a number of times and it has been a pleasant surprise every time. Writers cottage is in a quiet location yet with all the fun things Deal has to offer just around the corner. You are in the centre in no time and the beach is just a few minutes away. Writers cottage was perfectly clean and very pleasantly furnished. Add to that the fact that there is a nice garden where it is pleasant to stay on hot days. Or just start the day with a cup of coffee in the morning.
Every morning a little squirrel came to take a look in the garden, and it's just nice that a holiday home is so complete. Highly recommended to rent again for a relaxing holiday."

"Very well equipped kitchen, the whole place is very clean. Comfy beds and lovely downstairs bathroom and convenient loo and sink upstairs. On 3 floors so plenty of space in this cottage. Enclosed garden - so great for dogs."

"Fabulous little seaside home from home. Very comfortable, beautifully decorated, hot power shower, great garden and well stocked kitchen. Good central location meaning everywhere is easily walkable in Deal - would highly recommend."

"Enjoyed our stay in the lovely cottage. Really well appointed and tastefully decorated. The location is great… close to the various shops/restaurants on the High Street and only a short walk through to the beach. Would stay again!"
