Deborah made us feel very welcome in her lovely home. Whitstable is a beautiful place and Deborah's house is situated just a very short walk from both the main high street and the water.
We only stayed for one night, but Deborah gave us some great tips as to how to make the most of our short stay. Thanks to her we were even able to buy some fresh fish from the bots coming in on Saturday morning!
Also, great shower and comfy beds! Hope to be back soon.

Deborah was a lovely laid-back host, very easy to talk to and managed to get the perfect balance of friendliness without being too imposing. She served up a delicious breakfast of fruit and croissants in the morning which was a nice touch. If we are ever back in Whitstable we would definitely stay with her again.

About the Host, Deborah
A semi retired psychotherapist, still working part-time from home, in Whitstable.
I grew up in South East London, married and have a grown up daughter, who still lives in London, with her partner but spends many weekends in Whitstable.
I am very community minded and try to support local campaigns.
I like people, or all kinds, of different class and culture and enjoy listening to stories.
I enjoy the arts, music (live), historic buildings and a pint on the beach in our local Neptune Pub
