Purchased by the present owners at the time of the latest conversion in 1999, it has been solely used by them as a retreat from a hectic business lifestyle.

This unique one bedroom flat has been tastefully furnished to a high standard and fully equipped for the perfect self catering holiday. Accessed from The Parade, and with its own private beach entrance. Although on the beach, it is still close to the centre of town, with the many individual shops, restaurants, café’s, wine bars, pubs, ice cream parlours and all other amenities.

Beautiful flat beautiful view beautiful rest . Just sorry to leave

  • 5 of 5

Very well decorated in tasteful style tremendous views onto beach below and sea beyond.

Not that easy to find when dark but after realising we had to park 100 metres away ( £ 4.00 per 24 hours ) life became easy and car very safe where parked.

Perfect position, amazing sunrises.

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to stay for the the 2nd time at Eagle House. The flat is perfect and had we everything that the two of us needed. Greeted with milk in the fridge and a bottle of wine! We had such a relaxing time and everything is in walking distance. We witnessed the best sunrises and even had breakfast on the balcony in November!! I would recommend this property from these lovely hosts.

Thank you again. x

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.

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!

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.

Throughout the summer there are activities to keep both adults and children happy. Donkey rides, Punch & Judy, Fireworks on the beach & regular Bandstand concerts.
