This unique one bedroom flat has been tastefully furnished to a high standard and fully equipped for the perfect self catering holiday.

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.

The view is fantastic, the porch is private and very relaxing and the garden was lovely. We stayed a week and will gladly come back again. The accommodations are brilliant. It was a comfortable home away from home!

The icing on the cake

  • 5 of 5

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.

Views are amazing. Apartment is lovely.

  • 5 of 5

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!

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.
