“Well located for harbour and shops.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is a lovely house in a wonderfully central location, for both shops and harbour. Although parking outside the house in this narrow street was a little tricky (we visited during the Oyster Festival), once parked we did not need to use the car all week. The kitchen is well equipped and the beds are very comfortable. The children loved the little garden, and we made good use of the outside table and benches for meals. I would recommend this property and would visit again.

“comfortable and convenient”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The cottage is ideally situated for the town, just a very short walk to all amenities. It is well equipped and comfortable. Whitstable has a great choice of places to eat but it is advisable to book in advance for a Saturday evening.

“Tasteful Holiday Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I booked this property for a weekend away with 5 friends. The house was very stylish and tastefully decorated, there was more than enough space for 6 of us to cook, have dinner and relax downstairs and the bedrooms upstairs were just as nice. We also enjoyed sitting out in the garden. The kitchen is particularly well equipped with everything you need, not just the absolute basics as is often the case. The house is perfectly situated to explore Whitstable, near to the highstreet and the harbour but in a very quiet street. It was very easy and pleasant dealing with Rafal, and meeting Kirsty at the house. The only criticism I have is that I had to pay for the whole stay at the point of booking, something which I have never had to do before for a holiday rental. All in all, I would certainly recommend Breakwater Cottage to friends who wanted to go to Whitstable!

“Lovely house, modern decor and nice garden very close to centre and beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

A lovely house - well-equipped with everything you need (including good quality baby items) and a nice safe garden for children. Lovely modern decor with some fun, quirky touches. 1 minute walk to the main high street and 2 minutes to the beach.
Please note - the road on which the house is located is very narrow so 4x4s maybe a tight squeeze.
