We stayed in No 17 and were delighted with the standard of everything and the wonderful location. We were a stones throw from the lovely high street and great independent shops and restaurants. The house is so well equipped that, should you choose, you can eat in. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have booked again for next year (our third time in No 17.
Matt was quick to reply and very helpful, the cottage is really nice and well equipped with even little things we didn't expect to have which made the trip that bit better.
Whitstable is a nice town to be in for a few days, and the beach is good if you like pebbles!
We rented No. 17 for a girls weekend away (a group of 6) in June and it delivered everything we needed. The cottage is very well presented and equipped, it has a large and bright kitchen dining area with bi-folding doors opening onto a lovely sunny courtyard garden. The location is also perfect - it is within a few minutes stroll of the beach/harbour area, some great restaurants and pubs, as well as lots of individual quirky boutique style shops so you can forget about the car while you are there! It might be useful to note that the stairs up to the top floor bedroom are very narrow and steep so would probably not be suitable for either very elderly or very young children.
Having never been to Whistable, I wasn't sure what to expect....but it is safe to say that it is a gem of a place and No 17 contributed to my adoration for the little town. Matthew has done an awesome job doing the place up - I had huge house envy and may have taken away some little tips for the decor for my own home!
Located centrally, we were literally 5 mins from everything which made stocking up the wine when it was running low very simple.
Matthew was really helpful and gave us some great recommendations for places to eat in the evening, where to get our fish and chips etc...and we managed to basically eat and drink the weekend away - which was definitely our intention.
Hoping to pop back next year for another weekend of wonderfulness.

A group of 5 of us girls (all in our early 30s!) rented No.17 for a weekend by the sea from London. What a perfect little house - from the location (stone's throw from the High Street and Harbour) to the decor, to the wonderful remodelling of the open kitchen, it was the ideal spot for a weekend away from it all.
Matt was brilliant - very accommodating about arrival/departure times, recommeding good eateries and things to do, and generally left us to enjoy ourselves while always being a phonecall away if needed. It was very well equipped with everything you could need for a weekend away, and THE BEDS, oh my. It's been a long time since I've slept in a single bed and this one made it no hardship! In fact, sleeping in an attic room with a beautiful view an a friend to gossip with swiftly transported me back to my youth.
Traditionally a Cornwall holiday lover, I would say this trip has firmly converted me to Whitstable as a weekend getaway destination, and I look forward to making a trip to No 17 a regular(ish) occurrence.
