“I think it needs a bit of TLC”
Reviewed 15 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed at Sunshine Villa for a 4 night break in March. Booking was confirmed promptly and was problem-free. The security deposit was returned within an acceptable time. Here are the plus and minus points for Sunshine Villa from our experience of it:

PLUS

It's very central so that you can visit one of the many lovely restaurants or coffee shops within minutes. Likewise the beach which is just a short walk away. Lovely walks along the seafront.

The house was very clean and the beds comfortable. Plenty of towels were also provided.

You can park outside the house, on the gravel drive, although some larger cars will overhang onto the pavement.

We were warm inside on what was a fairly bitter weekend.

Wi-fi connection was good.

MINUS

The state of decor is a bit disappointing. It is in need of freshening up to cover the many scuff marks. The floor boards are painted grey and much of the paint has come off in well-trodden areas. The walls are also painted grey. It looks quite drab.

We arrived at night. It was VERY difficult to put the code in the keypress with no light. Fortunately we had a torch. There is an outside light in the porch but it wasn't on.

There was no welcome pack. A small bottle of milk would have been a nice touch and is a pretty standard offering in a holiday let these days. Many reviewers have thanked the owners for their welcome pack but there was nothing on this occasion - maybe because we'd only booked a short break? The fridge had a very strong odour of sour milk.

There is very little up-to-date information available on places to visit in the area. Fortunately we had done our homework beforehand but some brochures for the many attractions close by would be helpful to visitors, I'm sure.

We enjoyed our visit to Broadstairs very much - it's a lovely little town and has some fantastic places to visit locally. I think Sunshine Villa is just in need of a little over-haul. It's a decent size and has a good position. It just didn't quite live up to the rave reviews on Trip Advisor for us.

Thank you so much for your review. We have been waiting for a gap in our bookings to redecorate. The decorators have been in this week so Sunshine Villa is lovely and fresh again for this season. I am sorry you didn't see the two A4 folders in the front room which are full of brochures with things to do in Broadstairs. I am glad you checked on the internet for the many places to Visit in Thanet. I hope our places to eat out document which I sent you, gave you some guidance for the many lovely restaurants in Broadstairs. I hope you will return and stay with us again in the future.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 31 March 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We stayed at Sunshine Villa for the month of January 16 as a get away from break - it was really important to have that home from home feel for comfort, cooking and having friends and family visit us. The house is really comfortable, it has good facilities and is lovely and spacious.
I had to work from 'home' quite a bit so the internet access was really important, we didn't have any problems and I was able to be in touch whenever needed.
We would totally recommend the house and Broadstairs even in dark and cold January we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and there are so good many places to eat and drink; think we tried most of them during out stay !

“Perfect”
Reviewed 18 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

From the moment I enquired about staying until the moment we finally said a sad goodbye after a fantastic weekend; I have nothing but praise for Sunshine Villa and it's lovely owner. My husband and I spent the weekend there with our brother and sister in law and quickly realised we could have invited the whole family ! It is spacious, clean, homely and yet still has the odd touch of luxury you only expect from a hotel. It could also not be better situated. We are already thinking about booking for a few days next summer to take the kids and make full use of the family feel it has.
