“Girly weekend getaway”
Reviewed 8 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We had a GREAT time at the Ventings. We were greeted by Matt into his cosy house, beautifully decorated with very comfortable beds. It was the perfect place to base ourselves for our much needed girly weekend. With a large kitchen & dining table it ensured our wine fuelled meals were easy & comfortable, - a stones throw from the shops meant everything was accessible. All in all a very enjoyable stay. Not recommended for young children due to very steep stairs.

“Perfect for a weekend away with friends!”
Reviewed 20 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

I went away with the girls (6 of us) for a long weekend to Whitstable and we stayed at The Ventings, I would definately recommend it if your looking for a weekend by the sea close to all amenities, it is situated one road off the main high street and right near the harbour. Great sized kitchen and dining room which was perfect for us as we chose to eat in every night, the kitchen was fully equipt which was an extra bonus!
The only thing I would say is that if you are travelling with small children, the stairs are very steep, just something to be aware of.
Would definately stay again!

“Lovely very well equipped house great location but steep stairs”
Reviewed 13 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Very well equipped house close to shops and beach in central Whitstsble. VERY CLEAN, LOVELY BEDS AND FRESH LINEN. We were warned about the steep steps, which with little children, a wobbly granny and me heavily pregnant weith twins were challenging, especiaaly to get to the toilet in the night as the bathroom is downstairs. However this is the natureof a period character property. Owners very easy to communicate with.

“Stylish rental in a great location”
Reviewed 7 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Three nights in Whitstable with a toddler and nine week old baby. The Ventings was a lovely place to stay. Almost everything in the property has been painted white which makes it very bright and airy. Fortunately it also has a real lived in feel to it so we did not have to worry too much about our lively toddler tearing around the place. The stairs are indeed very steep but our two and a half year old coped with them fine. The bedrooms are lovely and the beds super comfortable.

The property is located just off Harbour Street so the shops, restaurants and beach are all really close.

“Great location and lovely cottage”
Reviewed 19 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

The cottage is minutes away from the main shopping street and the seafront. It was spacious and comfortable. The stairs were steep, particularly to the top floor - and our 2 year old son wanted to go up and down a lot (would recommend bringing a staircase for families with toddlers) - but we had a lovely mini-break.
