ShalomStayed October 2021
Pros: The house is quite spacious and is fitted out with a great stove and all the kitchenware required for cooking your own meals. The garden was well kept, with some beautiful flowers to add some color. It was a bit chilly when we stayed, but in warmer weather we would've enjoyed sitting and having our meals on the outdoor table. The location is close to downtown and has a beautiful view of the water from the living room, front patio and master bedroom. Cons: The house is situated right next to the train tracks. If you're a heavy sleeper, this may not be a problem, but I wouldn't recommend it for light sleepers as the noise of the warning bells and the train rumbling down the tracks is quite loud in the early morning hours. The hallway floor is also noisy which makes it difficult to tiptoe quietly so as to not wake others who are sleeping. We had 2 maintenance issues. I noticed another person also complained of maintenance issues. I'm not sure if they were taken care of and we had separate ones, or if they are ongoing, but at any rate, I would expect better from a Bachcare rental.

LeeStayed January 2021
A large house with great airflow on hot days and convenient to the beach. Lots of boats, trucks and trains to watch and comfortable beds, with a quiet eating space outdoors. House managers were organised and quick to respond.

I would be too ashamed to put a review of what I encountered and add my name to it, given the price we paid. Head office have asked for photos which I will forward and also accompany it with an email. I hope to have the matter fully dealt with and receive a partial refund
MaheshStayed December 2020
Pros - Great location, close to amenities, great outdoor space - amazing views from lounge and master bed Cons - Interior is dated, squeaky floors, aged carpet, squeaky bed in one of the room, maintenance issues needing attention (loose screw for the backdoor handle, loud banging noise from how water cylinder, could be noisy at times
Thank you for your feedback Mahesh. It's great that you enjoyed the location and views. We have passed along your suggestions to the owner of the property and hope to welcome you back again to Breakwater Cottage in the future.

ShannonStayed February 2020
We had a lovely stay at this bach as it was very handy to everything. A heads up though can be very noisy with many trucks & trains entering and exiting the port. This did slow down later on in the weekend.

We really enjoyed our stay at 2 Breakwater Rd. There is a marvellous view from the house and several windows, and the house is very roomy and comfortable. Everything was in perfect order and we certainly plan to come back for a longer time when we can.
