“Wonderful weekend break with friends”

We a group of school freinds choose Whitstable for our weekend away and choose "The Bubble" for its location to the seafront and the town. It is an end property so you get the extra garden on the side.
The house is decorated to a very high standard with all the amenities you would expect (except a hairdryer). Spotlessly clean and well stocked.
We really enjoyed the rooftop terrace which was our selling point in the first place.
Would defo return in the future.
We found parking in the street about 5 min walk away (in high season I would expect to have pay to park in car park nearby)

“Dream property, a stone's throw from everything, in idyllic Whistable!”

We (a young couple with a baby, accompanied by the grandparents) had an amazing week at the Bubble. It has a glorious location being a stone's throw from the beach and Whitstable's town centre.

The property itself has been decorated to a high specification with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a dining room, large kitchen and living room that opens out onto a fantastic roof sun terrace that overlooks the garden and the beach. The large garden is very well kept and also provides access to a BBQ.

The booking procedure was very simple and communication from Martin in advance was great, including recommendations for places to eat and also parking (the Bubble does not have parking, however it is possible to park on the nearby streets, although a car is not really necessary whilst there). Jo met us to hand over the keys - she was great and showed us around the house, explaining how everything worked.

Martin provided a lovely welcome hamper of goodies for our stay which was greatly appreciated. WiFi, a good book selection and TV with freeview and DVD player made this the perfect "home from home" - it really does have everything you would need, especially in the kitchen which includes a great American style fridge-freezer with ice / water dispenser.

Easy access to the Old Neptune for a pint of Whitstable Bay to watch the sunset over the Isle of Sheppey (which you can also see from the Bubble's fabulous roof terrace) and Pearson's Arms for a great burger. Also check out JoJos in Tankerton and the Sportsman down in Seasalter (make sure you book).

Deposit was returned within 48 hours of check-out - top communication again in this regard.

Faultless property, stay and customer service - we will be back!

A lovely warm and comfortable house, with shopping and beach facilities on the doorstep.
A splendid view of the sea and Whitstable sunsets from the sitting room. The property has quality fittings and appliances a real home from home.

“Perfect house and location”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We had a wonderful time at the Bubble. We have stayed in whitstable many times and this really was the best place so far. The house was even better than we had hoped and very well equiped for cooking and relaxing. The view is wonderful and it is located so close to everything. Jo and Martin were both very helpful and the welcome pack enjoyed by all. We look forward very much to returning . Thank you

“Lovely Bubbly!”
Reviewed 23 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The Bubble is a beautifully well appointed house and a perfect location for enjoying all Whitstable has to offer. The marvellous Jo showed us around the house, Martin the owner provided a lovely welcome hamper of goodies and the booking was easy peasy. The charming, and surprisingly large, garden was much enjoyed by the children and being right on the beach they scooted here there and everywhere to their hearts content. Sunsets over Sheppy, a glass of something bubbly (of course) from the sun terrace, the tiniest of strolls to good eating and watering holes..what's not to like? This really is an exceptional property.
