Broadstairs is a lovely coastal resort and Eagle House is the icing on the cake. We have recommended this apartment to numerous friends and look forward to staying there again ourselves. Beautifully positioned overlooking the beach where we spent much time sitting on the balcony watching the world go by. The apartment is comfortably furnished and extremely well equipped, with owners only too willing to help out if necessary. Highly recommended.
I love this apartment, I've stayed here twice now and we are going back again later in the year.
It's a sunny, comfortable, well equipped and very clean apartment with fantastic views, a balcony and private access from the garden to the beach.
Always really good communication and accommodating owners.
Would recommend to everyone and I have done many times!
The location was excellent, the apartment was virtually on the beach, was exceptionally clean and the surrounding gardens well-maintained. I would definitely recommend this apartment to friends or relatives and have actually booked it myself for next year already. Friends of mine visited me one of the days I was there and they were very impressed with it. I loved getting up early in the morning and sitting on the balcony having breakfast looking out to sea and the beautiful bay. The apartment is also well positioned for the local shops but it is also quiet there. I would add also that I found the shopkeepers very friendly and helpful. We had lunch out most days, the Royal Albion Hotel is just behind the apartment, and we went there a couple of times, there are some nice restaurants/pubs nearby and also a very good fish and chip restaurant and a well-known ice cream parlour called Morelli's. We had a lovely walk by the cliffs into Ramsgate and back and watched the sailing club competition one evening and also the life guards practising in the sea. I look forward very much to my holiday at "The Eagles" next year.
Anyone booking this apartment is in for a treat. The unique beach front location with uninterrupted views of the Broadstairs beach from the lounge and bedroom is a joy. Carole the owner was so friendly and accommodating and made our honeymoon something special. A real gem. We have already recommended to friends and family.
the convenience of Eagle House can't be beaten and there isn't a better view to be had. We enjoyed a glass of wine while sitting on the deck mere steps from the beach and watched the waves. Sleeping with the windows open and hearing the ocean is pure bliss. Everything you need is a short walk, including the train station. The beach is well cared for and the apartment is well furnished and includes a washing machine and drying rack. Carole was a pleasure to rent from and very timely in her responses. The apartment was an excellent value, perfect location and exceptionally clean.
You won't be disappointed with this wonderful flat which has unrivalled views of Viking bay and is equipped with everything you need. We stayed for 4 nights and has a wonderful time. Everything is within walking distance including the tiny cinema which we went to. We sampled the local restaurants again all excellent and the flat is well positioned for them all. Carole the owner was extremely helpful and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this flat. I can't wait to return.
Broadstairs is a unique seaside resort, totally unspoilt by the ravages of time. It does not boast noisy amusement arcades but exudes a traditional friendly charm that exists throughout the year. Built directly above the sheltered Viking Bay with beautiful sandy beach and small harbour. Its all year round appeal is due to the near proximity of many wonderful beaches. The Viking Coastal Trail is perfect for cyclists and walkers alike plus many fabulous golf courses, one being the famous Royal St Georges at Sandwich which plays host to the British Open Championship.
Broadstairs has a long association with Charles Dickens (Bleak House where Dickens conceived his book of the same name) and holds a Dickens Festival Week every year in mid June. Another highlight in the Summer calendar is Broadstairs Folk Week in August. Go to link for more details. http://www.broadstairsfolkweek.org.uk/
