“Very Jolly!”
Reviewed May 20, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean house. Lovely bright open plan lounge area and fully equipped kitchen. Suntrap enclosed courtyard garden with seating. The owners have considered everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible, from decent teabags for a cuppa to luxury toiletries and fluffy towels. I had the best night sleep, thanks to a fab mattress and lovely fresh smelling bedding.
The Jolly is only a short walk from Whitstable high st, with lots of independent cafes and very good restaurants. More importantly a short stroll to the beach with some good pubs on the front, perfect for a sunny day and a drink in the sun.
I would highly recommend this for a perfect break.

“Faultless and beautiful, a perfect retreat in our hour of need!”
Reviewed April 24, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Belle & Ian were on hand offering my partner and I the perfect retreat in their beautifully decorated and ideally located property. Cannot express enough how lovely this place is, the attention to detail is reflected throughout. We particularly appreciated the decorative touches collected from their global travels.

The reason for our visit was due to their generosity following the Grenfell Tower disaster. Having attended the scene as a firefighter on the horrendous evening the generosity of such kind souls has restored our faith in humanity. This place and Belle & Ian are a real gem in the heart of beautiful Whitstable.

“Amazing holiday let”
Reviewed February 4, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Perfect location, not far from town or seafront. This place looks brand new. Its like home from home. Clean, tidy and modern. Totally equipped, even has added extras like cello tape, scissors etc. Two double rooms which is rare. Very spacious, bbq outdoors. Quiet area. Very lovely and the owners are very helpful and sweet. Well worth the money. Highly recommend.

“MAGICAL WEEKEND”

This beautifully and tastefully decorated house is located within a short walk of all of the shops (and more importantly pubs!) and about 10 minutes from the beach. The house is modern but homely with personal touches which make it feel like a real home from home. The owners have gone to great lengths to provide personal touches and share their knowledge and love of Whitstable. There's a great information book with personal recommendations of things to do and places to visit. Spotlessly clean, with top notch furnishings, we had the best night's sleep on the mattresses and did not want to leave!
Whitstable itself is such a great place to visit, with or without kids. Great live music scene and a must for 'foodies' or 'drinkies'! We visited during the festive season which was great, Cockney Santa arrived on a boat and there was a lovely ice rink complete with snow machine. Co-incidentally the rink was outside the Harbour Café, complete with outside heaters and blankets. Just the spirit when our ankle biter went off skating, leaving us to drink "Mummy juice" (whilst supervising of course). We have visited Whitstable many times and will definitely be returning to the Jolly if we can get a booking. This property does get booked up very quickly, so don't delay if you are thinking of booking it.
