“Faultless”

Stayed for a week with children and grandparents. House really was perfect. We had a week that started off very cold and ended up very warm and the house works in all weathers. It heated up quickly on those cold days and the garden and roof terrace made it perfect for warmer weather. Being right on the beach with children is an added bonus and having a garden that's next to the sea and not overlooked is not easy to find in Whitstable.
The house itself is very well equipped and the welcome box was full of goodies that we didn't manage to get through. Hope very much to come again.

We are repeat visitors at The Bubble and we love so much about this house:

- It is located on a road one minute from Whitstable High Street but is still silent at night time (great for light sleepers)
-Close to all the restaurants and shops
-There is direct beach access through the garden gate
- A large roof terrace looking out over the beach
- A nice welcome pack on arrival- Prosecco in the fridge and more chocolate than anyone could eat
-The owner Martin is on the ball in terms of quick reply to email and any questions.

The house has three bedrooms- two twins and one double bed. We have always gone with friends but it would work for a family with kids (though as others have said, watch out for toddlers on the steep stairs)

“Just Bubbleicious!”

We had a super three day break in this wonderful house and loved every minute. The owner's attention to detail and excellent communication throughout the booking process ensured that everything went smoothly and to find that the welcome pack included a chocolate orange was just the icing on the cake (so to speak).

OK, the parking is not perfect, but by following Martin's advice we found free on-street parking just two minutes walk away without any problem. The laughably steep staircase could be a problem for the infirm or after a couple of glasses of bubbly, but really it just calls for a degree of caution and common sense.

Don't hesitate; read the reviews, check out the photos and then just book it - you won't be disappointed!
PS. As another reviewer remarked, the security deposit was back in my bank account just 48 hours after check out - well done Martin.

“What a place !”
Reviewed 11 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Stayed at The Bubble a couple of weeks back with my wife and some friends. Fantastic house, amazing position, and a lovely town. We really didn't want to leave, but I'm not sure whether the next tenants would have appreciated us hanging around.

Martin and Colleen have produced a stunning place to stay, and can't do enough to ensure you are comfortable and everything is OK. Go out the back door, down through the garden, open the gate, and you're on the beach - it can't get better than that, unless you just want to sit in the first floor Lounge or on its adjoining roof terrace, and enjoy the panoramic sea views.

Well done, all holiday cottages should strive to be this good.
