The week went exactly as planned and the house was just perfect. Even the weather was lovely! Thanks for all the help with planning - we would not hesitate to recommend The Oyster Shell as a perfect holiday retreat.

We all loved your wonderful house, it was the perfect base to explore the Whitstable area. The house was enjoyed by a toddler to an eighty five year old and all inbetween! Great tips and help given by the very nice host next door. A great stay - thank you.

Cool, comfortable and with more than a touch of James Bond style! One of the best holiday houses we´ve ever stayed in. Recommend Samphire and The Sportsman for lovely food.

Such a great stay. Lots of beach walks and great food. Fun house for the whole family.

We have had a relaxing week in your amazing house, living the "high life". Feel fully recharged, thank you.

Lovely house, relaxing stay. Tenterden was a nice town and St Margaret´s Bay is lovely seaside walk which we enjoyed with Molly the sausage dog. We visited Canterbury three times for shopping. The weather was mixed but it didn´t spoil our stay. We would love to live here!

Our third visit to The Oyster Shell - we have stayed in the summer and have now enjoyed a cosy, fireside, wintery, snowy stay. Just as pleasurable - everything completely immaculate and carefully organised as before. Thank you for providing such a creative, beautiful house by the sea - an inspiration!

We had a magical few days at The Oyster Shell, the house is beautiful, extremely comfortable, and on some days we didn´t want to go anywhere. We just felt like staying at "home"! Hope to come here again and experience the house in the summer.

The Oyster Shell is a lovely light, immaculate and clean home. On Saturday at high tide we boarded the paddle steamer and sailed along the Thames to and through London Tower Bridge, a journey of 7 hours, and then returned by coach. So we were very pleased this opportunity coincided with out week here in Whitstable. We really enjoyed this scenic coastal location.

You have truly thought out everything, what a lovely property! We have had a thoroughly relaxing stay and enjoyed looking out to the sea from the balcony every single day. The weather was fantastic which complimented a very enjoyable holiday.

We have had a wonderful week here at this fantastic house! It certainly is a home from home! Every little detail has been carefully thought out to make you feel comfortable and the house is wonderfully equipped. Dave made us feel very welcome and gave us lots of valuable information about the area. He is so lovely and we enjoyed his stories very much! We would highly recommend staying here and would definitely come back, especially is we got the same weather!

I produce music videos and used the Oyster Shell as a location as well as staying in the house for the weekend of the shoot. The owner was very accommodating, with essentials in the house like beer and wine it´s perfect! The house was stunning, as soon as I pulled in the drive I was blown away by the water feature, balcony and electric door. The views from the giant windows of the sea are incredible. The style inside was again amazing, very minimalist, with wonderful paintings. I would 100% recommend this house both as a holiday home and and a location!

The Oyster Shell comprises a very well thought out living space with lovely views out to sea. The owner was very thoughtful in providing a fantastic range of food and drinks with an honesty box if any items were used. We had a lovely time.
