My husband and I were lucky enough to stay 3 months at the Breakwaters, summer 2014. It is the best kept secret in Cape Cod! Conveniently located, can easily walk to Main St., Hyannisport, and Hyannis harbor. At the end of a dead end street, it's minutes from the beach. We could see the water & hear the waves from...

My husband and our two small children (under five) stayed mid-week in July in cottage 7B. It is just a quick walk to a great little beach that is not crowded at all (probably because there isn't a lot of parking at the beach). The cottages are about a mile walk to the main street with tons of restaurants, shops... More

We loved the Breakwaters units. The units were clean and the bedrooms were spacious. The proximity to the Keyes beach is also a definite plus although we found it could be cleaned better. The accessible pool was also very convenient for the kids. We had the #6A unit and it was well equipped except for the kitchen that would need... More

We stayed at the breakwaters in late March. It was clean and well kept. We also found out it is under new management and a lot of new owners. The cottages are going through a lot of changes for the better. Obviously the cottage we stayed in has been recently updated. New furniture, flat screen t.v. and clean and neat.... More

Oct. 2012 Just had the most unpleasant accommodations of any vacation ever. There was never any respresentative of the establishment in the office. They are apparantly very trusting as we never seen anyone until our last day to pay for our stay. Our unit, 6B was back to back with the laundry room and all we heard all night was... More

When I booked our three night stay, I fully expected the typical beach cottage. Structurally, and aesthetically, it was. The most important feature that was lacking was cleanliness. My crawling infant was completely covered in filth from the wood floor and carpet after less than 2 minutes. I was horrified. The floors have probably never been mopped and although it... More

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... More

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,... More

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... More

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,... More
