Why Charlotte and Chris Cornell chose Kent

You couldn't get more central than this apartment in Whitstable. It is right in the centre of the conservation area and has literally a butcher, a baker and a candlestick maker on the doorstep!

One of the best apartments I have stayed in. Which is a lot! As I have stayed In hundreds of places

  • 5 of 5

A superb quality apartment close to the sea in whitstable.

Warm and very modern.

Everything you will need is there.

10 out of ten I will give it.

Chris didn't call around or bother us once which is a plus. As we works nights.

Really liked the welcome pack.

Thought it was a really nice touch.

If you don't like the apartment you are either royalty or plain picky.

Would love to stay here again

Well done to Charlotte and Chris on these "Digs"

Whitstable Central

  • 4 of 5

This duplex is approached via a narrow alley and a staircase up to the first floor duplex. The main living area is spacious and bright and overlooks Harbour Street, one of Whitstable's main thoroughfares. Don't try to unload at the front door; the buses will start to accumulate. There is everything; a really well equipped kitchen (the freezer is downstairs in the hallway); lots of games for grownups and toys for children; a loo, a shower room with a loo; a very comfortable sitting area. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms and a small outside rooftop terrace. One of the bedrooms opens directly on to the staircase. All in all a lovely apartment.

If you can, try to get the use of the owners' beach hut. It too is brilliantly kitted out, isn't far away, and is very peaceful and cool.

Beautiful apartment in fantastic location. Clean, modern and well-equiped

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was in a great location with excellent equipment and facilities. It was easy to maintain for us with very little needing to be done on check-out. The entertainment and cooking facilities were superb and everything was clean and modern. We missed the option to recycle but could understand why that might not be available in a holiday let. Use of the beach hut was a real bonus, it's a shame we didn't get the chance to use it more than one day during an 11-night break. We didn't expect to have so much provided, such as linen and towels. Even beach towels were provided along with a washing machine and tumble dryer so that we could refresh the linens ourselves. Lots of basics were there as well, such as cleaning stuff, tea, coffee, cooking oils etc. Some of the pans could have done with replacing as the non-stick coating was coming off, meaning it wouldn't be very pleasant to eat anything cooked in them, but that really is a small niggle as the kitchen was very well equipped. The bathrooms and bedrooms were comfortable and spacious. It was very hot in the main bedroom as it didn't seem secure to leave the window open during the night due to flat roofs adjacent to joining properties, so I would like some kind of solution to that if we stayed again during the summer. As for the location, it couldn't be more central for Whitstable. The only drawback being parking during the busy summer period. The owners gave us plenty of tips on finding parking spaces to make that easier.

There was a lot going on in Whitstable and nearby Herne Bay during our visit and we really couldn't recommend this accommodation highly enough.

Thank you for a fantastic holiday.

Wonderful place in the heart of Whitstable

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we found this place (& are already planning our next visit!)

The Captain's View was so much more than we'd hoped for. Bright, spacious, clean, well equipped and a fantastic location.

The owners were so helpful and ensured we had all the information we needed as well as arranging access to their beach hut (at very short notice). The beach hut is fabulous & such a great 'perk' to what is already a fantastic place to stay.

We were a party of four - 2 adults & 2 children and we felt we had heaps of space. The accommodation is very well designed and beautifully decorated - it has a lovely 'boutique' feel to it whilst also feeling homely and welcoming.

We are sad to be leaving but will definitely be back. (For a week next time!)

Thank you Chris & Charlotte from The Morgan family.
