Whitstable, Kent, England
'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. It also has one of the biggest roof terraces of any Whitstable beach-side property, which offers fantastic sea views, great for watching the sun go down, preferably while sipping something chilled.

The house has three bedrooms, one double, one triple and one twin,...

Amazing location - lovely views across the bay and so close to the harbour, including quirky independent shops and galleries. Great choice of restaurants and coffee places. The house was described by one visitor as a “home from home” but I just wish my home...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.
