This stylish seaside home, which sleeps 6 guests in three upstairs bedrooms and usefully provides space to comfortably accommodate a 7th guest if required, has a fresh Scandinavian Summerhouse vibe.
Whitstable is a world away from what we have come to expect from a British seaside town. There are no amusement arcades here, and no donkeys on the beach, but instead a fantastic range of independent boutiques, highly-regarded restaurants, oyster bars, quiet pubs, and quirky galleries. The shingle beach is a pleasant space to relax and play, whilst the town is also a favourite choice for water sports enthusiasts where visitors can take tuition in stand-up paddleboarding, kite surfing, or sailing. This is a truly special place to stay, and it is no wonder that visitors choose to come back year-after-year.
The front door of this beautiful property opens onto the hallway and a smart little snug that can be configured to accommodate a 7th guest. Beyond this, the main comfortably furnished living room features a warming wood burner, a smart TV with Netflix, blu-ray DVD, CD player and Sonos system for guests to enjoy, along with a selection of books and DVDs. The dining room is an equally handsome room and offers a large dining table, beyond which doors lead out onto a decked terrace and garden, allowing guests to open up this space in the warmer months. One step from the dining room leads up to the well-fitted galley-style kitchen, where guests will find an oven, hob, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. A washer/dryer is located in a separate utility cupboard under the stairs. Two of the property’s bedrooms are located on the first floor: a super-king-size room, which can be set up as a twin room thanks to the zip-and-link beds; and a pleasant double room. There is also a shower room with WC on this floor. Stairs lead to the second floor where there is a pretty twin room which has built-in single beds, next to which there is a bathroom with a bath and WC. Please note that there are sloping ceilings on the second floor, and therefore some reduced head-height.
Doors from the dining room lead out to the sunny decked terrace where guests will find garden furniture and a BBQ. This area leads on to a long narrow garden with mature planting which includes a wild flower meadow (at its best in May-June) and a second terrace area which is a lovely place to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. Roadside parking is available outside on the street together with local public car parks.
