This harbour town in the southwestern region of the Netherlands is a popular holiday resort for its historic lighthouse and the marine Visserij Museum, which shows the hard life of fishermen through the ages. Breskens may be small, but we’re sure that you will find something to entertain yourself and your guests for a few days’ holiday. If that’s not enough to entice you, then you could always just while away your time on the beach. Bearing this in mind, we’ve found the ten best Airbnb vacation rentals near the sea.
This stylish house is just five minutes’ walk from the beach and has plenty of space to host up to six guests with three double bedrooms. This property is unique in both the layout and design features. We adore the small steps from the hallway to the kitchen, with its Portuguese-style tiling. The property itself is very narrow, but one of our favourite features has to be the driftwood-style dining table which sits in perfect contrast to the bright red wooden ceiling beams. Whilst the dining room has a cosy, hued feeling, the living room is bright with white-washed wooden furnishings.

This ground floor apartment with a balcony has a beautiful view of the North Sea; you can even hear the seals from the water’s edge. This double bedroom has two single beds and an en-suite. There is kitchen access for guests to use with everything you could need to make yourself at home. One of our favourite features is the large L-shaped corner sofa in the living room, which is open plan to the dining area and kitchen. Stepping out of the living room to the garden and you’ll land your feet on the wooden patio, the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine after a busy day.

Another fantastic location is this spacious property just 10 minutes’ walk to the beach. That means you can basically roll out of bed and into the sea for a morning swim! The rental is on a quiet residential street, with a small garden area and a ‘cottagey’ feel interior design. We adore the bright blue paint used to to decorate the internal features of this vacation rental… it really makes you feel like you are on holiday!

This private log cabin for two guests is located in the hosts’ garden and offers the chalet with toilet and bathroom attached. This quiet property overlooks a pretty brook and field, a fantastic view to enjoy whilst sharing breakfast with your friend or loved one outside. It is worth noting that there is neither Wi-Fi nor a kitchen included within the property rental. The location is fairly remote, but there are plenty of cycling opportunities in the parkland of nearby Groede Breskens or you can enjoy the beach in just 25 minutes’ traveling time.

Another ‘best of both worlds’ property is this small cottage which is nestled into a quiet village just 3 km (1.8 miles) from the beach. The location is ideal for couples or families looking forward to an active holiday. There are plenty of cycling and walking routes to choose from in and around the surrounding area. After a busy, active day, you’ll be happy to return to the detached cottage, and if you decide to treat yourself to dinner out then there are a number of eateries to select from: restaurant, gastropub, fish and chip shop, plus several coffeeshops and cafes. The cottage consists of a living and dining room, double bedroom, and spacious kitchen.

This is a unique and charming little holiday house, which is just 30 meters (98.4 ft) from the beach, offers a quaint location for your vacation. The property can sleep four people sharing two bedrooms, one a double and the other comes with a set of bunkbeds, making this property perfect for a family holiday. This full property rental also has a cozy living room, a small semi-open kitchen that comes with a fridge-freezer, dishwasher, oven, and coffee maker. With this property, we particularly love the outdoor shower and terrace area.

This whole house is suitable for up to 5 people looking for a spacious and relaxing holiday home only 600 meters (1,968.5 ft) from the sea. This property is stylish and welcoming, with wooden and leather furnishings throughout. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms are bright; we adore the outdoor seating area which you gain access to via the French doors from the living room. Take breakfast on the patio whilst enjoying the sights and sounds that come along with the extensive garden area.

This is a loft conversion room with an en-suite bathroom and access to a fairly new kitchen in the lower section of the house. The host lives in the house and so will be present during most evenings, but you are still welcome to use the common space living area to relax and unwind in before retiring to your own room. It is worth noting that at the time of publishing, some of the rooms are still being renovated so it is worthwhile talking directly to the host to ensure that you are renting exactly what you expect in the property. There is also full Wi-Fi throughout the property and parking on-site, although you probably wont need a car much as the location is excellent: just 100 meters (328 ft) from the beach and 50 meters (164 ft) from shopping amenities.
