“Glamorous house, perfect stay”
Reviewed 2 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Just back from short break in Whitstable and Heron House was fantastic. We appreciated the Kentish treats Julie, the owner, welcomed us with - a cheese platter, strawberries and local sparkling wine. The attention to detail in the house was astonishing, luxurious and well equipped - there were even crab lines to borrow, picnicware and board games. The 7 of us had a very comfortable stay. Julie could not have been more helpful plus clear and friendly communication before arrival. and We are looking forward to returning (moral dilemma to leave good review as we want to keep this place for ourselves!) Thank you and Whitstable - you are delightful.

“Incredibly chic and spacious house close to EVERYTHING!”
Reviewed 20 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The house itself is envy inducing, and you'll wish it was yours! Comfortable beds in spacious rooms, a highly equipped kitchen with a sun trap garden. Everything is finished to an extremely high standard, and the host was very generous to leave us some Pimms to ease us into the sunny weekend :)

Whitstable isn't huge but nothing is more than 10 mins walk away, including bus stops to nearby Canterbury. Parking at the house is really only for one car, which can be tricky for a group of 4 separate couples, but you can usually figure something out in the nearby streets.

Everything was just exceptional and we're making up excuses to return already!

“Faultless in every respect.”
Reviewed 12 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

It is difficult to add anything new to the superb reviews that have already been written about Heron House. Everything I have read (apart from a person called Paul who clearly has no respect for other peoples property) is absolutely true. The house is very spacious, exceptionally clean and the fixtures, fittings, linens etc. are all of high quality.
The garden and garden room are a delight and the area is exceptionally quiet despite being only minutes from both the sea front and the high street. The parking is a real bonus as Whitstable is not an easy place to find a parking space. Furthermore an additional parking space was also arranged for us. At all times communication with Julie was prompt and friendly and she organised the return of our deposit within 24 hours.
We were a party of six ranging in age from seventy to four and a half. We all had a wonderful time and my Granddaughter said "this has been the best holiday house I have ever stayed in.......when can we come back?". The answer was..... as soon as possible!

“Exceeded all expectations as was just perfect.”
Reviewed 10 August 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We stayed in Heron House for a week in July as we were in Whitstable for a family wedding.
The house suited everyone's needs including our 2 dogs and was by far the cleanest holiday property we have ever stayed in.
The layout and size of the house gave ample room for everyone.
Only five minutes walk into Whitstable shops and beach meant it was in an ideal location.
The sun shone for us every day which meant we were able to use the sunny garden (shade provided by an apple tree was ideal for the dogs).
The welcome goodies and flowers we discovered on arrival were a nice touch and very enjoyable.
Thank you for making our week away a holiday and wedding to remember.

“Absolutely perfect for a family holiday”
Reviewed 12 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We were three generations enjoying a half term holiday break.

Julie gave us a very warm welcome to Heron House and could not have been more helpful.

The house has been elegantly decorated and is extremely well equipped, with a generous supply of little luxuries to enjoy.

There was plenty of space throughout the house for six adults to relax and have a good time. The weather was kind enough for us to spend a lot of time in the garden and to take advantage of the barbecue which is supplied. There was some good natured competition over the occupation of the little summerhouse, which was really useful for those who needed a quiet space for some work.

The two children (5 and 6) adored the beach and the park, both within easy walking distance, and the frequent access to ice creams.

Whitstable offers a great choice of restaurants, cafes and small shops, so there is no need to venture beyond the High Street and the beach for all that you might need.

Heron House comes highly recommended and we certainly aim to return.

“A beautiful house perfect for a family weekend by the sea”
Reviewed 12 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This is a beautiful house that is thoughtfully and lovingly presented with a spacious feel and extremely comfortable beds. It was able to cater for our large family group with small children very easily. The location was perfect for us - 5 minutes from the beach for picnics and crabbing trips, and an easy walk to the town centre with its many and varied lovely shops and restaurants.

Julie very considerate and attentive and was available and happy to answer any queries we had in the lead up to and during our stay.

Would definitely recommend it!
