Buying Property in Whitstable

Beach holidays in kent

Renowned for its unique and slightly bohemian charm, Whitstable is one of the country’s most popular holiday destinations.

With fantastic beaches, a thriving arts scene and plenty of character, Whitstable is forging its rich maritime heritage into a bright future – making it the perfect place to invest in holiday property.

With your money going much further than it would in London, Manchester or Birmingham, and ‘furnished holiday letting’ laws offsetting expenses including full mortgage interest against the rental income, a holiday home in Whitstable can be so much more than a getaway by the sea – It can also be a savvy financial investment.

Whitstable Neighborhood Guide

Whitstable boasts a number of desirable and up-and-coming areas, so check out our guide to some of the town’s premier neighbourhoods for investing in holiday property.

Island Wall

Parking close to the High Street!

Island Wall is one of Whitstable’s most exclusive lifestyle locations, with spectacular sea views, enviable access to local amenities and close proximity to the Whitstable and Seasalter Golf Club.

An Island Wall location complements an active lifestyle; whether it’s a seafront walk before work or teeing off after tea. And the neighborhood’s coveted location combines the best of both worlds: offering the peace and tranquility of a secluded location whilst retaining the convenience of adjacency to the High Street and its stylish boutique retailers, bars and restaurants.  

That’s not to say that Island Wall’s prestigious location excludes it from the town’s bohemian charm – with the town’s many art galleries and independent retailers just a short walk away.

Perfect for:

  • Golf Lovers
  • Beach Holidays
  • High Street Access
  • Art Aficionados

The Tankerton Bay Sailing Club is also nearby, and has provided local residents and visitors alike with a fun, social environment in which to enjoy and discuss sailing and yachting since the club’s inception in 1962.
