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!

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.

Best yet

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a three night stay at The Captain's View. The entire experience was fantastic from start to finish. Thank you for creating such a delightful space to stay, at a reasonable price in the centre of Whitstable. I was particularly impressed with how spotless the property was. Lydia

Ideal location on Harbour Street

  • 5 of 5

Lovely flat, nicely furnished. Everything you want, and only a stones throw from anything you'd want to visit in Whitstable. The only word of caution - be careful with the bank of switches just inside the entrance door - they're not light switches, but switches for the white-goods (each one labelled in tiny font). If you don't know any better, it's easy to switch the fridge off while fumbling for the lights (we did).

Absolutely stunning apartment, the pictures don't do it justice!

Extremely clean and Fully stocked with everything you need. Very comfy beds, best nights sleep I've had in ages! Brilliant location, couldn't have asked for anything more.

Charlotte was really hospitable and had loads of great suggestions for places to go!

We have definitely found our little seaside retreat and hope to return very soon!

Christmas in Whitstable

  • 5 of 5

Captain's View was a perfect venue for our family Christmas, the apartment was absolutely spotless, beautiful quality kitchen facilities, bathrooms were also super quality, we could not fault the accommodation at all. There's always something that is missing or you wished you'd brought from home, but we couldn't think of one thing, well done!

Our only annoyance was the parking - very difficult to find a space close to the apartment.
