“Super house, would gladly return”
Reviewed 22 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

This was a really great weekend spot that exceeded our expectations. The house was immaculately clean and felt like a 'home away from home' versus a holiday rental, by which I mean lots of nice touches around the house, well decorated, etc. Everything worked well and we were 6 across 3 generations and all very comfortable. Wi-fi would be a handy addition and running heat before arrival, thanks.

“Fantastic cottage ideally situated in whitstable.”
Reviewed 22 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

The cottage is perfect for families or in our case 3 couples. Rare to find such a lovely cottage with 3 double/king size beds.
A modern but simple cottage with some lovely vintage furniture. Felt very clean and cosy. Just a few minutes from the high street and a short walk to the harbour and delicious sea food !
Would highly recommended this cottage and the host Rafal. We will be going back.

“A perfect weekend by the sea”
Reviewed 22 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

A fantastic house that was ideal for us, our children and our parents.

Great location - the only downside was that the weather refused to co-operate but the location of the house meant it was perfect to duck in and out of the showers!

10/10 for the house and location

“Lovely cottage, our children loved the bunk beds!”
Reviewed 22 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We stayed at Breakwater Cottage for a weekend in February 2013 - 4 adults and 2 children - and really enjoyed it there.

The cottage is very comfortable and well appointed, and is wonderfully located for Whitstable's beach and shops.

Our boys loved their first experience of bunk beds and the double on the bottom, single on the top format of them meant that an adult could sneak in and share with them if there were any disagreements.

We would recommend this cottage to any group - from friends to families.
