Amazing vintage Airbnb takes you back to the 1970s and has amazing views of the beach

An Airbnb host transformed her home into a stunning vintage 1970s style beach house with incredible views of Margate Beach.

Millennials are loving the 1970s vibe right now, and many have even brought a few elements of the aesthetic into their home design. More and more houses are equipped with rattan furniture and several shades of burnt orange.

However, an Airbnb host took it a step further and turned part of her home into a 1970s haven, providing a special nostalgia-filled Kent beach vacation.

Jessie Rose has converted the entire top floor of her central Margate townhouse into a studio and is now renting it out to holidaymakers across the UK.



Restored blue bathroom had to be shipped from Cornwall

The studio has an amazing original 70s kitchenette, authentic vintage lighting and a restored blue bathroom that had to be shipped from Cornwall.

It features iconic ’70s wallpaper, burnt orange kitchen tiles, an orange sofa, and orange cushions in the window seat, overlooking the Dreamland Ferris Wheel.

Jessie said: “You have to go through my house to get to the studio, but it’s her own private floor with a private bathroom, living room, and a lockable door. This is the top of the house, so you will have to climb a few flights of stairs!

“It has a wonderful view of the beach and Dreamland, both a minute’s walk away!”

The apartment costs £ 60 per night and can accommodate up to three people – and although it’s incredibly popular, it still has some availability for September and October.

Ten people left five star reviews for the studio in August, recommending it as one of the best places to stay in Margate.

Charlotte said: “A fabulous few days at Margate in Jessie’s apartment. So much thought went into the design of the original 70s kitchen and bathroom that was salvaged and restored. I loved the side seat. window with sea view.

“A great location for Dreamland, the beach and all the lovely restaurants in and around the old town. Jessie was an excellent host and very welcoming. I would come back without hesitating!”
