“Comfort and convenience - home from home besides the sea”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We recently stayed at this property and had a wonderful time. We escaped London and made it to Whitstable just before 9pm (but thankfully in time for some local fish and chips, and were delighted by the accommodation; spotless with a multitude of modern comforts, whilst also having its own character and charm. Brilliantly located literally 2 mins from the main High Street, but also on its own quiet, pedestrianised street which meant a restful and relaxing stay. Can't speak highly enough of the owners who made the whole process and stay as easy and convenient as possible. Very highly recommended and looking forward to a return visit in the future.

Liked best: Lovely accommodation in a fantastic location.
Liked least: Not a problem for us, but the property wouldn't be great for people with mobility issues (this is the only slight issue I could think of!)

“Lovely place to stay in Whitstable”
Reviewed January 12, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Stayed for a few nights only but this house is gorgeous and so close to the High Street - perfect for a first trip to Whitstable.
Rainy and cold outside but we were very cosy inside.
Has everything you could possibly need.
Rented through Whitstable Cottage Company - Garrie was so helpful.
We can't wait to go back to Whitstable.

“First Rate Property In Great Location”
Reviewed November 15, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Wonderful property, ideally situated to explore the whole of Whitstable and further afield up and down the coast. Felt like a real home from home and the information pack in the property (and sent ahead) was really useful, especially details of dog friendly eateries etc.

Best compliment to pay is that a week was not enough - so much to do and a great base to come back to and relax after a day out.

So many places to eat and drink in Whitstable, and one of the most dog friendly places we have visited - but if it is just a drink you are after then you will not do much better than the New Inn - quite literally over the road from the property. But every pub we visited was perfect for a lazy late afternoon / early evening pint (with a very tired dog in tow).

Very quiet property, despite central location, as on a pedestrianised stretch of street - but no issues whatsoever with parking in surrounding streets.

Certainly plan to return and have already recommended to friends.

This is a lovely property by the sea very clean and well equipped. Only one small thing would be nice to control heating a bit more. Also book places to eat in advance but suggestions folder very useful.

“Excellent location and great place to stay!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Just returned from a weekend with my partner and daughter staying at Waves in Whitstable while attending a family christening. The accommodation was clean, well equipped and stylishly decorated with lots of interesting features. Free Wi-Fi was also an added bonus.

The location was very central and only a few minutes walk from the station, High Street and harbour so no need for a car. There was some noise from nearby pubs but it certainly didn't spoil our weekend.

Many thanks Debbie, we loved your property and hope to return in the future and have no hesitation in recommending Waves.
