Convenient property in lovely coastal town

  • 4 of 5

The house had plenty of space for us and our three adult children and is situated close to the centre of town. (You can just about see the sea from one of the bedrooms and the shops and restaurants are a couple of minutes walk away).

Charming Broadstairs holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Broadstairs is a lovely family holiday destination and Sunshine Villa was perfect for our party of seven, whose ages ranged from two to seventy years. Our little grand daughter loved the toys and the play area of a little table and chairs in the lounge was perfect. The owner was very helpful when we requested extra keys as our party consisted of three couples. A lovely comfortable house for a traditional holiday by the sea. Many thanks.

Great location, perfect house for families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with two young children and my parents for an overnight. It is the perfect house with kids. Lots of room and the playroom with toys is fantastic. All the linen and towels were high quality and the kitchen was well stocked with plates and utensils etc. The location is fantastic, just off the high street so with young kids, ideal for strolling to the beach. A lovely house with a great feel and we would definitely book again.

Great property. Relaxed, comfortable and homely

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here for a weekend at the end of May and found the place to be charming and really comfortable.

Broadstairs was a revelation as a place to stay. There were more than enough great places to eat and different places to have a drink too. There was a real buzz to the place and the beach was terrific.

I highly recommend both the property and the area!

The perfect holiday house

  • 5 of 5

Sunshine Villa(s) is fabulously located for enjoying the beach, the restaurants, the pubs, cafes, and EVERYTHING Broadstairs has to offer.

It is the most homely property - well equipped with cooking utensils etc.

You instantly feel at home, the second you set foot indoors.

I prefer it to my own home! It is perfect for getting away with another family and their children. There were four adults and three children in our party, and we didn't feel 'on top of each other' at all. great design of town house - each family can have a floor each.

A stroll around Broadstairs is a journey of discovery with a lovely surprise around every corner. Our most famous resident was Charles Dickens who wrote many of his classic novels here. Walk around the Thanet coastline to explore our beautiful beaches and bays, each with its own character. Broadstairs' main beach is the unspoilt Viking Bay, where you can still see much of Broadstairs' Victorian heritage. Viking bay has a small harbour with cafes and gift shops, with plenty of rock pools for crabbing and exploring. An old fashioned beach funfair and a traditional punch and judy show in the summertime. There are a mouth-watering number of restaurants, bistros, cafes and pubs to choose from. Broadstairs has a vibrant calendar of events ranging from the annual Dickens Festival ( June), Water Gala ( June) and Folk Week ( Aug) to a great free summer entertainment programme. Easily accessible by car, coach, ferry and train from London St Pancras and Victoria Station.
