About this listing
2 lovely double rooms in a charming seaside terrace house owned by James and Sammy, you can read more about us below, but firstly, our lovely house by the sea. We have a mid terrace, three bedroom house, about a 3 minute walk from the beach, called Lilly House. We are offering 2 comfy double rooms with shared use of the bathroom, overlooking the back garden. Cereals, toast, tea and coffee included in the morning and if you have any special requests please do ask us and we'll do our best to arrange this. It is a very peaceful and quiet road and the birds are always singing. Guests are more than welcome to use our beloved kitchen with huge range cooker and cosy living room with wood burning stove.
There is always a friendly welcome with recommendations for local restaurants, walks or pubs. You can read more about these in our guidebook, or feel free to contact us directly and ask. We have a large brick BBQ in the garden and also a gas paella ring and picnic table. There is also a hammock if you just want to have a drink in the garden and relax..
Lilly House has arguably the best location in Whitstable, with the beach, train station and Harbour Street all less than a 5 minute walk away. For a more comprehensive list of Whitstable's pubs and restaurants please look at our guidebook, and check back from time to time because we are always adding to it.
A car is not needed, though if you are driving there is free street parking.
Whitstable has many art galleries and the collections and exhibtions change frequently. There are countless beach and forest walks to in the local area, ranging from short strolls to long coastal walks. Cyclists of all abilities love this part of Kent due to its flat coastal paths and its much more challenging off road forest trails. James can advise you on the best places to go mountain biking within a 15 minutes cycles from the front door. There is rear access to the garden so muddy bikes aren't a problem at all!
Additional accommodation available-sofa bed in 3rd bedroom suitable for adults or children at minimal cost.
We will also be letting out the entire house during late July and August. We will be listing it as a 2 bedroom house.
We are easy going but we do love our home by the sea. Feel free to cook, rest and enjoy, but leave it as you found it. We may end up sharing a meal or bottle of wine, and music, but I'll tidy up too-more hands make light work.
If something breaks-tell us.
If you need something, ask us.
If you want privacy, let us know.
James and Sammy is a very happy couple, We can always feel their happiness on their face and house. Lily house is friendly and happy, big and wonderful kitchen, we are happy that we can cook some food for dinner. Comfortable rooms and good shower. Very enjoyable and relaxing to stay in Lily house. Thank you so much James and Sammy. Higly recommend!!
The house was very well located - close to the train station, bus stop, high street and the beach, but in a quiet, residential area. The room is small but comfy. The hosts were very welcoming.
We were made to feel very welcome by James and Sammy, and the room was clean and comfortable. It was nice and close to our Wedding on the sea front, and we managed to walk back late with no problems! A wonderful stay.

Really felt comfortable in peaceful whistable home of sammy and james. Ever so friendly at all times. Sad we had no time to properly meet but a lovely stay nonetheless!
We only got to spend a short amount of time with James and Sammy because our trip to Whitstable was so short, but we had a great experience staying with them. They were very welcoming and relaxed, the room was clean and cozy, breakfast was lovely... it was exactly the kind of experience that makes Airbnb amazing- getting to share a home and making new friends. Also, Whitstable is so worth visiting! Would definitely recommend this place!
James and Sammy made me feel like a long lost friend - everything was beyond my expectations and would definitely ask to stay again- Superbly located for all amenities- walking distance to shops, rail and bus services and also to the harbor and beach
