Amazing Apartment

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing apartment, this was our first visit to Kent and we could not have found a better place to stay. The views are fantastic and sitting out on the balcony in the sunshine just made it even more perfect. Everything in this apartment is to a very high standard and we would definitely love to visit again.

Thank you for a lovely holiday.

A perfect sea view

  • 5 of 5

For those of you who dream of living by the sea you won't find a better view than here. I spent most of the time mesmerised! Viking Bay was lively and colourful and we were blessed with sunny weather. We can't wait to return. Thank you Carole and Jenny!

A very special apartment

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a short break at Eagle House - and missing it already. This apartment couldn't be better situated - such an amazing view of the wide span of Viking Bay! It had everything we needed for a relaxing and comfortable stay. Though we were lucky with the weather and enjoyed breakfasts on the sunny balcony, it would be a wonderful place to be whatever the season.

This was our 4 year old grandson's first ever holiday and watching his excitement at entering the building on the rooftop, discovering the sea right outside the window, and then the little secret gate to the beach was just magical.

Thank you so much Carole and Jenny for the most perfect holiday in your lovely apartment. Many happy memories have been made and I have no doubt we will return.

Great property, with fantastic views and access to the beach and town.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Eagle House now a couple of times and it was good to start with, but with improvements made to the kitchen this is a brilliant location with great amenities and facilities. There is no better spot in Broadstairs for access to the beach or the town. The owners are thoughtful and responsive.
