“Fantastic cottage in great location”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This cottage is a beautifully decorated and ideal for a holiday with friends. It is in a great location near the centre of Whitstable, with easy walkable access to the shops, restaurants and beach. Matthew who owns the property is very helpful and had thought of everything we would possibly need. We loved staying here!

“Lovely Cottage In Great Location ”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We only stayed at No 17 for one night but loved the cottage. It's really well positioned for exploring Whitstable and looks great too. Kitchen in particular is fab! Matt was incredibly helpful with check in/check out, recommending local restaurants etc. Will definitely try and return.

“Couldn't have found a better place to stay!”
Reviewed 17 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed here for my friend's 30th birthday and it was the best decision we could have made; it absolutely polished off a fantastic weekend. The house was spotless and freshly cleaned when we arrived, and there was literally everything you would need at the house. I brought a few utensils with me as I wasn't sure how equipped the house was for cooking (based on previous experience at other rentals!), but there really was no need! There is everything you need and more.

The beds were super comfortable (that reminds me, I must buy a soft mattress topper!) and there were fresh towels provided. The cosy garden was a perfect suntrap for prosecco in the afternoon sun, but if you didn't fancy that then the beach is only a 3 minute walk away.

The owner was incredibly helpful throughout the whole process, and has even kindly posted some left-behind-sunglasses for us which is such a lovely touch.

Each one of us kept commenting how great the house was, and we are already thinking about our next visit to Whitstable, where there is no doubt about it - we will be re-booking No.17! I thoroughly recommend staying here.

Liked best: Just the overall space and brightness of the whole house. We felt very at home.
Liked least: If you are a light sleeper, take an eye mask and/or ear plug as the front room is a little noisy and light as it's on the road

“Amazing space ”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just the perfect space for 3 couples and 3 babies! Layout is great with a big open kitchen and social space looking out to the garden and away from the bedroom so the babies could go down at night with no fuss. We will definitely be back...
Super convenient just off the main high street and 5 min walk from the sea too.
Could not fault the place :) thank you!

“Great central holiday house”
Reviewed 10 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed here for a short break with our two teenagers and really enjoyed it. The house is very close to the sea front and harbour and there are lots of interesting walks in and around the town. Whitstable itself is a good location with some lovely shops and excellent cafes and restaurants. No17 is very smartly decorated and has everything you need. Its owner was very friendly and relaxed and let us stay later on our last day which was really helpful.
The only minor problem was parking as it is a narrow road but we found parking nearby so was not inconvenienced. We would certainly go back as we found far too many things to do and places to eat for the time we had.

“Perfect seaside retreat!”
Reviewed 25 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

No 17 is a really lovely house and just perfect for enjoying all that Whitstable has to offer. I have to say we especially loved the way the house has been decorated it had a very relaxing feel to it.

My friend and I visited in half term with five children between us and we all had plenty of room. The downstairs is a great space. Lovely front room which was cosy in the evenings and the large kitchen and dining just great for 7 of us. The kitchen has everything you could need and was great for our kids on pancake day!

The bedrooms were very well presented and the beds extremely comfy. I would just point out that the stairs are rather steep and especially so to the 3rd floor with the 2 single beds. This was not an issue for us at all but might be useful information for others.

The house is in a great location so you can walk to the shops and beach in moments.

All in all a great find and we hope to return!

We really enjoyed our stay at No 17 in June 2014. The location is great for discovering the nice shops in Whitstable and the beaches are only a few minutes away.
