“You really won't find a better place to stay in Whitstable than at Waves!”
Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The house is absolutely beautifully presented; it has a real homely yet luxurious feel to it, is absolutely spotless, has a lovely little garden.... I genuinely wouldn't change anything about it! The location is amazing- 2 minutes from the beach and the main street, in a lovely quiet pedestrian area with parking very close by.

The owner is a pleasure to deal with and made everything so easy and pleasurable. Which reminds me I must book the house straight away for our summer holiday!

See you in June Waves!

“Clean, cozy, perfect location”
Reviewed 8 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Even with rainy weather, Waves seemed sunny and warm inside. So many windows and comfortable in every way! The location is quiet--no traffic (which is saying something in Whitstable!)--yet it is 2 minutes walk from the main shops and restaurants and 4 minutes from the beach. The house was clean and well-appointed. A real treat!

It was our first time to Whitstable and we had such a lovely time it will certainly not be our last!

The Waves is a fantastic rental that has been furnished to a very high standard and has everything that you would need to ensure you feel right at home.

The property was very clean, welcoming and cosy - it looked every bit as good as the pictures - in fact better.

The owners were very accommodating regarding our arrival time and any other questions we had regarding the property or whitstable!

We would advise you pre book any restaurants before arrival as they get very busy and you don't want to disappointed!

We will definitely stay at The Waves again!

This was our second stay at Waves after a great week last year. It really does feel like a home from home and I wouldn't hesitate to book again or recommend to friends / family.
Beds very comfy, as is the lovely leather couch and chair. Lovely kitchen and great little courtyard garden.

“Lovely cottage and fab location.”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a brilliant time at Waves. The location is ideal and the cottage is very nice and really nicely decorated and furnished. The room at the top of the house is also really special. The back patio area is a sun trap. Would recommend to visit.
