The cottage had everything you needed if you were going to cook. The thing that stuck out the... More

When we arrived, we had to clean the cottage. There was mold in the shower, black dust on the counters and chairs and dirt on the floors. The towels are stained and not very clean - previous tenants are required to do the laundry. The remote for the TV does not work, you have to manually change channels and volume... More

It is certainly a concern when any business receives a bad review, but we believe travelers who have read this will see through a “review” that is malicious for the pure point of being malicious. Every one of the earlier reviews shows that our guests believe they have received a first-rate experience. The Superior Small Lodging Association conducts lengthy and... More

If you could design a perfect Cottage away from home, with all the amenities needed to move right in, well, pack your bag and bring a tooth brush. That's all one needs to enjoy a relaxing, exciting, and wonderful fantasy away from home. Quiet street, with lovely grounds. Classy people, clean and everything one needs to live comfortably. The beach... More

Walking distance to several restaurants, bars, Walgreens, etc.... More

Firstly, the photos and website of Cottages By The Ocean really do not do it justice. It's the only place I've ever stayed where the place itself looked so much better than the photos! Cottages By The Ocean is about a 3 minute walk to a gorgeous beach with lifeguards. It was always very quiet when we were there (although... More

These are wonderful little places to stay. They are what they say, I found them very inexpensive and a treat to stay in. The cottages are very clean and neat. Everything is very close by and you can walk a block to the beach with chairs and towels provided for you. Even thought you are withing walking distance of the... More

Cottages by the Ocean are just what the name says. These really are little, individual studio and one bedroom units complete with porches and rockers all assembled around a nicely landscaped courtyard. Best of all, they're only a couple of blocks from the beach. Everything is provided for your trip to the beach, too--portable beach chairs, coolers, even beach toys.... More

Private, Secluded, Immaculate, Quaint, Adorable, Charming! Everything you need is provided, from beach gear & towels to kitchen utensils. 1 block from the beach. Several great restaurants within walking distance. 3 blocks from the intersection of Atlantic Ave & A1A. We didn't even get a rental car this trip. Customer service was top notch - the owner called several times... More
