Reading the reviews it is completely understandable why my wife booked the Breakwaters for our very first vacation with our 10-month-old. They're GLOWING...and they make no sense at all. Yes, the location in relation to the beach is excellent. Nice beach, sunsets and some have a view of the ocean. The cottage is disgusting and small children are subjected to...

You stay at the Breakwaters because of the location - perfect for families. It is literally steps from Keyes beach, which is behind the hyannis harbor breakwater. The waves are gentle, and it's delightful to sit on the beach watching the boatsas well as the sailboarders from Kalmus beach just to the west. Great views of hyannisport to the east,...

I was very disappointed when I wrote to the Breakwaters telling them that I travel with a certified service dog they told me "we have a no pets policy". I told them that I use my service dog to walk and that he helps me with daily living tasks. They only said "we have a no pets policy". The law...

We loved our stay at the Breakwaters! I love the little cottage that we stayed in. We felt more at home at this little home than we ever would at any hotel. The rooms are nicely furnished with just enough room. We were just a very short walk from the beach. We weren't there long enough to use the pool,...

Having made a very bad choice of accommodation for last summer's vacation we decided to book in to a hotel for our first night in Cape Cod and drive around the following morning to view some places we had found on the internet. We saw about 6 places and the Breakwaters was the one for us. It was clean, quiet,...

this trip made us all fall in love with Cape Cod all over again! We stayed at The Breakwaters with 6 families - 20 people in all, ranging in age from 6 to 48. The location was awesome and the kids were able to go from the beach, to the pool, to the snackbar, and the older ones even walked...

This place needed alot of updating and fixing. Only 1 outlet in the bathroom worked, beds were really hard, dishes werent very clean, some windows were painted shut, only 1 entrance- no emergency exit.. the place was really run down, especially the kitchen. The walls were very thin- we could clearly hear our neighbors in the attached unit. And come...

We search hard to find the right place for a vacation on Cape Cod. The Breakwaters are the right spot for people who want to be close the ocean beach and close to the main street shopping. The cottage is like a second home completely furnished and very clean. All the staff were helpfull and answer all your questions. The...

“Ask if your room gets a seabreeze. Also, some duplex units are side by side, others are up and down, so you'll want to check if that's an issue.”
