This month Coast has teamed up with Whitstable Holiday Homes Ltd to offer a chance to win a luxury, self-catered getaway in a beachfront home for up to eight guests.

Starfish House is a very special, four-bedroom contemporary seaside home located right on Whitstable Beach. It has a gorgeous first-floor sun deck, the perfect place to enjoy Whitstable’s stunning Turner-inspired sunsets and beach life.

The owner of Starfish House also owns a vintage and coastal-inspired homeware company called Starfish Vintage, so each room has been beautifully styled to reflect her love of all things vintage and seaside.

Whitstable truly has it all, from fresh shellfish to tiny art galleries, to one-of-a-kind shops and classic pubs. Whitstable Holiday Homes Ltd manages and takes care of Starfish House’s guests, as well as a unique selection of other self-catering holiday homes in the heart of Whitstable. They provide accommodation for all types of breaks, from short, romantic weekends to big, family holidays and specialise in dog-friendly stays, with over 20 pet-friendly properties to choose from.

Whitstable Holiday Homes’ owner Gail is also a Whitstable native and can offer first-hand advice on the best places to eat, drink and visit during your stay.

What sets Whitstable Holiday Homes apart from other holiday home agencies is that the team provides high-quality customer service before, during and after their guests’ stay. They ensure that each guest’s expectations are met on the doorstep and every property is pre-checked before their arrival, so that every guest can enjoy a stress-free break.
