We found this amazing Airbnb property to be spotlessly clean, well equipped, warm and welcoming. Our host was incredibly helpful, responding quickly and helpfully to any questions. We highly recommend this property, it’s in a great situation to walk into Canterbury Centre itself. It’s also on the right side of town to explore the coast, making journey times easy. It has everything you need for a lovely stay. Thank you so much.

We were blown away with how close this house was to Canterbury. The location was perfect, with only a 2 minute stroll to the cobblestoned high street.
Rachel was amazing with all her communication to us, and was quick to respond to any questions we had.
Our week long stay was perfect, and we will definitely be back!!

Would definitely recommend this accommodation, it’s ideally situated for Canterbury High Street, excellent value for money, and the host Rachel could not have been any more helpful.

Fabulous house! Very warm and clean and peaceful. The free parking in carpark was essential or you can park at the back of the house but we stayed in carpark. The arrival video was very useful.
The was spotless and well equipped. Beds were comfy, sofa was spacious and had everything we needed for our stay.

We had a lovely time in Canterbury and our apartment was lovely too. Rachel was very helpful and notified us with lots of help and how to find the accommodation and a load more. The apartment was very nicely presented and very homely too. We were lucky to have very good weather (all be a winter chill). We had a great meal at The Corner House in the town and there are many restaurants to suit everyone! It is certainly an ideal location and the area of the apartment was very calm and not at all noisy.

House comes with all the amenities including wifi and cleaning products, tea/coffee etc so you dont have to worry. We will definitely come back.

We had a great stay here with our family and little one. The house is really well located to get into town easily. The house was extremely clean and generally really nicely presented, which lovely and meant we could just relax and enjoy it. They also had provided a few bits we hadn't expected like washing up bits and cooking basics like oil and salt and pepper. As well as tea, coffee and sugar. We would definitely recommend
it and come back again.

Useful note for parents - it's a small microwave so big sterilisers don't fit but the sterilising bags do. And don't forget you need your own travel cot, like we almost did!

The house was very clean and tidy, and well equipped with the items listed in the description. It has a very comfortable and cozy feel to it, and there is a nice little outdoor space as well. The location is very central and just a few minute walk from the cathedral, shops and restaurants. It is also a close drive to most touristic areas in Kent. The hosts were also very kind and considerate, respond to messages within minutes, and sent us an amazing list of recommendations which was very handy. I totally recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice and comfortable stay in Canterbury 🙂
