'The Bubble' (as in Whitstabubble in case you're wondering), is the perfect holiday home. There isn't a comparable holiday house on the Whitstable market. This is simply the best! No other property has such a great combination of location and amenities. It is situated by the beach next to the sea wall, a gate from the garden opens on to the beach. The house is a minute walk from the town centre, with it's shops, restaurants and art galleries. It also boasts a private side garden, which lets light flood into the house and is great for al fresco eating.

The house has three bedrooms, one double, one triple and one twin, and sleeps seven ( there is also a sofa bed which could take another person by arrangement ) The house benefits from two bathrooms, one on each floor, the downstairs being a wet room style, great for coming off the beach straight into a shower. The house was rebuilt recently, to a very high spec, including solid oak floors throughout, oak doors, granite worktops, American style fridge etc etc . It has three sets of patio doors, (two patios and one roof terrace). It meets modern sound and insulation standards, and has new wiring and plumbing. All windows and doors are new and double glazed, so the house is cosy in winter. The Bubble is one of the houses on Dollar Row, paid for by silver dollars salvaged by Whitstable divers. The diving helmet was developed in Whitstable in the 1820's. The house is 500 yards from a golf course. More

The Bubble couldn’t be more centrally located for a Whitstable stay. The property is very comfortable, tastefully decorated and extremely well appointed. The beds were picked out for praise by our very picky kids! The decking gives great sea views; we hope to be back...More

This really is a fabulous property. The location is fantastic - literally a stones throw from the sea and about a 2 minute walk to the high street. And as long as you are able to find parking (we did with relative ease), you couldn't...More

About the neighborhood
Whitstable is a charming seaside town. It gets its character from the fact that it has a working harbour and is a proper town. It doesn't have a sandy beach or amusement arcades. It does have some great restaurants and pubs. There is trendy shopping on Harbour street, with its chi chi shops and art galleries. Then there is the High Street for the things you do need. Some of the shops seemingly haven't changed since the fifties. You can buy some nice fish at the Harbour, and of course whitstable is famous for its Oysters. There are lots of nooks and crannies to explore including the famous smugglers alleyways. No visit to Whitstable is complete without going down Squeeze Gut Alley. There is a lively music scene in Whitstable, and various festivals throughout the year, including the famo...
