For me and my son it was great staying with Charlie, Andrew and their 2 cats. They are lovely and gorgeous people really taking very good care of their guests. We are thinking going back with my husband and our daughter to their place soon.
Had a lovely nights stay with Andrew and Charlie. We couldn't fault it. They were very welcoming, our room was lovely and clean. The spacious, shared bathroom wasn't an issue. This was our first time staying in someone's home and we were a little apprensive but our worries were soon forgotten, Andrew even booked a taxi for us for our evening out. We will definitely book again.
A gorgeous couple so welcoming and
Lovely one night stay here.
Andrew and Charlie are very friendly and welcoming and made us feel really comfortable during our stay.
Large double bedroom overlooking their courtyard. Shared use of a bathroom.
Very quiet location but only a short stroll down to the pier and seafront.
Ate at The wine Bar in Herne Bay which I'd highly recommend.
Would highly recommend for a short visit, either to Herne Bay/Whistable area, and only a 15 minute drive from Canterbury.
Great stay in this lovely home, close to the sea.. Charlie and Andrew were friendly and helpful hosts, and we will definitely return!
I stayed with Andrew and Charlie for four nights and even though it was booked at fairly short notice, they were happy to accommodate me in their lovely home. Both made me feel very welcome, and Charlie very kindly made me a gluten-free loaf of bread (next time I'll bring some recipes!). The location itself is excellent with easy access to the beach and good transport links to the rest of Kent, and the shops are within five minutes walk. I would very happily stay here again when I am in the area!
Andrew and Charlie were wonderful hosts who made us feel very welcomed in their lovely home. The location was superb, breakfast was a nice touch and the room was beautiful as well. I would highly recommend staying at Herne Bay!
We had a great time in Andrew and Charlie's home. We did not miss anything. Very friendly and accommodating. I recommend it to all. The sea is 3 minutes away from the house and the city is also only a few minutes walk, also very good bus and train connections. We will come back again to Andrew and Charlie.
Lovely couple , lovely home ; being near the rail station and the sea it was very suitable for my two night stay .
only stayed one night hosts were very friendly ,room nice and clean and tidy,would definately stay again good value for money.
