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 into town! The accomodations were very clean with every convenience. Although the wallpaper was peeling in a few places, the rooms were quaint, quiet, and comfortable. We had 9 kids who had plenty of room for late night UNO games in the 3 bedroom living room. The proximity to the water and the water view from the 3 bedroom deck was amazing. We spent time on the Sea Street beach and traveled to Nauset for the big waves 2 days as well so we had the best of both worlds. Close to shopping, beaches, restaurants, etc. Our 3 bedroom had a big lawn out front which we used for lacrosse practice, baseball practice and intense bocce games. We cooked great meals on the grills onsite too! My only sugggestion would be to add outdoor showers to rinse the sand off. Can't wait to book for next year. Highly recommended for families.

Room Tip: 3 bedroom units 2a, 2b, 3a and 3b are closest to the water!

We checked in on to 7A and are staying for a week. My husband and I have a 1 bedroom with a King bed (which is actually two twins) a kitchen including granite counters and a large sink, a full sized fridge, and a stove, as well as a large deck, a microwave, a coffee maker, a barbecue (including a large pkg of charcoal.) If you keep kosher, the sink and counter is kasherable and there are pots which are stainless steel and can be kashered. Just bring paper plates and plastic cutlery if you keep kosher. There is a 4 pc. bath.

The customer service has been amazing. So far there has been nothing but accomodation to our requests by the staff. This unit has tonnes of windows with blinds and while there is no central air, there is a good cross breeze, we had a fan in our closet and Gilbert went and got us a window AC when I expressed concern about temperature. We are literally steps from the beach and can see it from the deck. This is a residential neighbourhood and very quiet but still close to Main street and other hilights. Our parking was close to the unit.

James in the office actually said to us, if you need something, or anything is missing, just let me know and I will go get it. The pool is locked up except upon request, so it is very quiet and the only thing is you have to request to get it opened for you. We have not been in yet, but look forward to it because we hear it is very warm!'

Linens, toiletries, salt and pepper and even a bag of ice were in the unit already. We shopped and are now set for the week. There is a shop and stop with a kosher bakery in Marston's Mills, and nearby a Trader Joes and a Star Market. No need to eat out. Oh and apparently Chabad has a meal ordering service as well, but we are cooking ourself since we have everything we need!

Obviously this place would be great for anyone, not just people who keep kosher, but I am emphasizing that part of it because it is hard to stay in the cape without a kitchen. Sure, Boston is an hour away, but that's a pain. Also, just so you know, we bought meat in Albany at the most amazing market (price chopper centre street) and apparently there is some frozen meat in the shop and stop although i did not look for it.

very reasonable and thoroughly convenient. i wanna come back for pesach.

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 to find out on weekends the park that is adjacent is quite dangerous after dark.. nice and close to the beach though

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 ground is well maintened and the pool water perfect. Thank to James the manager to secured me and my wife before the hurricane Earl. Thanks also to the Brezilian cleaning staff for the work on a very warm week. If you want a five star resort on a budget mind go to the Breakwaters in Hyannis Mass.

The cottages were superb! Up to date clean and well equipped! The manager and staff were very helpful and accommodating! The management works tirelessly paying attention to small details that make for a great stay!
