“Nice holiday rental”

person found this review helpful

We had a nice stay at Breakwater cottage - the house is nicely decorated and my bed was very comfy.

Although stair gates are provided, these did not fit so I would advise to bring your own.

On a final note - we almost had an altercation with the owner regarding the damage deposit. I would therefore always recommend booking through a letting company and not directly with the owner.

“A lovely relaxing getaway!”
Reviewed 25 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Four of us stayed at this lovely little cottage for s couple of nights recently and we were very impressed. Close to the high street and shops, no car was needed to shop or eat out. The cottage itself is modern, clean cozy and had all the items you need for a comfortable stay. Deposit swiftly returned and we had good communication with the owner. We will be back to stay again.

“Great location, clean comfortable accomodation”
Reviewed 11 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I travelled with my wife and 22 month old daughter, and we had a lovely time in this cottage near the centre of Whitstable and also close to the beach. The house was very comfortable, clean, user friendly, with Wifi, and also child friendly i.e. had a cot and highchair. The toilet & bathroom is downstairs which is the only caveat to our positive review. I would recommend it as good value accommodation for a family

“Lovely quiet cottage”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I stayed at Breakwater Cottage for a long weekend with a group of friends. We found it comfortable, stylish, clean and extremely quiet. It is situated on one of the narrow streets five minutes' walk from the harbour and high street, with easy access to Whitstable's restaurants, bars and independent little shops. It was lovely to have some garden space too.

The owner was very helpful in recommending places to eat out and local amenities, and the key system was very straightforward. Parking / driving along on the unbelievably narrow street took some nerve but apart from that, a great base to explore Whitstable, Canterbury and the surrounding areas.
