Whitstable has become firmly established as a weekend retreat with its thriving restaurants, bars, cafes and independent boutique shops whilst retaining it's authenticity through it's working harbour, renowned oysters and the annual Whitsable Oyster Festival.

Situated right beside the sea, Whitstable boasts spectacular sunsets and miles of beaches with their distinctive beach-huts and breakwaters. The town has plenty to offer foodies with its farmers market, fish mongers, butchers, bakers and fruit and veg shops. These numerous independent shops are all within easy walking distance of each other.

The much lauded 'Sportsman' restaurant (Michelin starred) is a short taxi-ride away in neighbouring Seasalter. Canterbury with it's spectacular cathedral is 7 miles away - there is a bike route from Whitstable to Canterbury and bikes can easily be hired in Whitstable.

"Great cottage with great location in a lovely town"

I stayed here with my family (parents, wife, 1yr old) for two nights. The cottage was lovely - exactly as advertised - and we had a great experiencing dealing with Rafal and Kirsty. My favourite part was the little patio + garden out back with the BBQ. Great way to spend time on a nice summer day. The location of the flat is also excellent as its only a 5 min walk to the centre of town as well as the harbour. Lastly, the cottage itself was in superb condition - neat, clean, comfortable and with all mod cons. I would definitely stay there again if I were to visit Whitstable! The only suggestion for improvement I have would be to install wifi in the flat.

"Cosiest beds made it difficult to stay up after 9pm!"

Lovely cottage, great location, in immaculate condition and very well equipped. The beds were so comfortable it was quite tricky going out in the evening, even though there is a great choice of restaurants just 5 minutes away, we loved the tapas one and the fish and chip shop. Deck chairs for the garden would have been welcome on the 2 days that it didn't rain but otherwise lovely, thank you for caring about your visitors Rafal.

"friendly, nice and convenient"

Cottage was clean, very adequate for our needs and very handily located. We had a very nice time for my mothers birthday, and the house was fine for my young children. There was also a microwave which wasn't mentioned on trip advisor. We would go back. Kirsty, who we dealt with for entry and deposit was very nice, and kindly posted my wife's earrings which we left behind, thanks Kirsty.

"Great Location for town, station and the beach"

Stayed at Breakwater Cottage for a long weekend and we didnt have to take the car out once ! From the cottage you can walk to the town (which has many restaurants) to the sea as well as to the railway station nearby . We also found a bowling alley within walking distance for when the weather took a down turn. The accomodation was clean and comfortable and we managed to stay warm even though the weather was freezing. My children 7 & 4 loved the bunkbeds ! We would definitely come back again , thanks for having us.

"Beautiful cottage in fantastic location"

We had a lovely few days staying at Breakwater Cottage. The cottage was very comfortable, spacious and beautifully furnished. It is also located just a stones throw from the lovely boutique shop of Harbour Street. Perfect for a short break or a longer let, and ideal for young children.

"Excellent Location and fab House!!"

Just spent the weekend at breakwater cottage with my partner and some friends! Excellent location literally a two minute walk from Harbour/ High Street. Fab house, had everything and more that we needed!! Loved the decor and the street. Super clean! Nice quiet area! The owner Mr Rataj was very efficient in his dealings with the booking, providing useful information about the property and local area as well as checking we had all we needed- nice friendly man! He was also very quick in arranging the return of damage deposit at the end of the holiday too. Would highly recommend!! :-)

"Excellent location for exploring Whitstable"

We stayed at Breakwater cottage on Friday and Saturday night in Nov to find a beautiful cottage which was within a few mins walk to most of what Whitstable has to offer. Had execllent meals at Wheeers, Pearson's Arms and Lobster Shack. Rafal (the owner) also provided us with free logs for the fireplace which was very useful during for the cold nights. Bedrooms were good size, nicely decorated and had good beds / matresses. Kitchen was also fully equipped with lots of glasses and cutlery for use. Would definitely recommend staying here for a short break in Whitstable. Would be nice if wi-fi is added to the property as my vodafone 3G network did not work the whole weekend.

"excellent house, great location"

I just spent a weekend in this house, and it exceeded all expectations. The house is decorated to a very high standard and was spotlessly clean. The log burner in the lounge was the icing on the cake!

"Fantastic accomodation right in the heart of Whitstable"

Breakwater is a beautifully decorated cottage in a central location that is in easy reach of all of Whitstable's highlights. The cottage was well thought out and comfortable, a real feeling of luxury. Small, tidy enclosed garden which our 10 month old loved. Nice quiet area and as we stayed midweek had a parking space right outside of the cottage. The owner Mr Rataj was very efficient in his dealings with the booking, providing useful information about the property and local area as well as checking we had all we needed. He was also very swift in arranging the return of damage deposit at the end of the holiday too. Would highly recommend

"Great location, perfect for families, excellennt choice of property."

We stayed for 4 nights in August, with two 10 year olds and a four year old. Plently of room for living area and cooking. 3 great sized bedrooms, with really comfy beds! Garden was great as we could let the children go in and out as they pleased. Kitchen facilities were good and we cooked everything from roast dinner to pancakes! We ate outside a few times too as there was a lovely eating area outside too. Lovely short walk to the sea front, harbour and town. Lots to do within walking distance so the car stayed where it was for most of the week. Sea front had lovely flat path for running, (if you are feeling energentic!). Kids took their scooters which kept them happy too! Will probably rebook in the future.
