Guestbook comments from the owner
It was a wonderful time! The location of the apartment is just fantastic!! We were in the 2 weeks of very, very comfortable and felt can only express our absolute recommendation. Broadstairs is a magnificent place, but also Margate and Ramsgate are recommended and the road to Canterbury is not too far. We will definitely come back. Nicole & Kai
