If you want a rest - go here. Being on the beach, the town up the road, the house, everything was lovely. It had a feeling of promoting relaxation and genuine enjoyment of the setting. Lots of old pine, high ceilings, a circular sort of house, the rooms flow easily from one to another with a feeling of space and calm. All clean- lots of books, piano, play stuff for kids inc. games. Lots of hot water, decent towels. Lovely.

“Our spiritual home”

Kiora is a truly wonderful dream house in a beautiful matured woodland garden right on the shingle beach overlooking the picturesque “Street” a shingle causeway that magically appears at low tide. Built at the turn of the century (1900) the house is full of seaside charm with open fires and antique furniture including a lovely Baby-Grand piano in the lounge with a great view of the sea, as there is from almost every room. Jez looks after you wonderfully, he collected us from the station and ferried us back the house and left us with a nice bottle of wine after letting us in on all the great walks, pubs, restaurants nearby, not forgetting the picturesque Whitstable Harbour with its handy fish market. All in all you really couldn't ask for a lovelier house, in a incredible location, location, location!

“Bracing stay at Whitstable Bay”

What a fantastic welcome we received to this idyllic cottage on the sea front. Jez is a top bloke; he helped us with our luggage, provided a comprehensive tour, and even provided a chilled bottle of Chardonnay and a home made cake.
Lovely accommodation: real fires, lots of light through white drapes across wooden floorboards. A mini grand piano, if you like to tinkle on the ivories.
Views of the Isle of Sheppey and out across 'the street' (a kind of low tide spit). Lots to do in Whitstable and Tankerton, both within 10 minutes walk.

Lovely walks along the promenade to Whitstable town centre or the fish market. All creature comforts are provided for, from deck chairs for the beach to logs for the open fires. The owner was amazing and so helpful, we even had a homemade cake and bottle of wine on arrival. Would recommend!

“A cosy, well equiped house in a stunning location”

We loved our New Years Eve stay in Kiora.

The house was spacious & cosy for our group of 8 friends & two babies. It's really well equipped kitchen. The views are stunning. The house feels private yet well connected as it's a 10 min walk to Whistable or 10 mins to Tankerton. Great walks, pubs, fish market all in easy reach.

We couldn't have asked for anything more!
