“Wonderful, distinctive experience. Exceptional value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

My Mom and I travel regularly and rarely does a vacation property experience delight like Cottages by the Ocean did. If you are looking for an incredibly comfortable, easy going, tranquil, ideally located and distinctive near-the-sea cottage - then this delivers 100% and is excellent value too. Elaine Fitzgerald and her team care hugely about service quality - from reservations through to the post visit satisfaction survey, it was all flawless. We'll return without a doubt.

Room Tip: We had Cottage 2 and the porch was gorgeous - private and peaceful. Great place to sit when it was r...

Place is good situated near the beach, shops and Miami, Everglades etc. Clean place with all needed for a week or so and possibilities to cook and/or BBQ. If you want more than just a hotelbed and you appreciate the possibilities to cook and to sit outside this is a very good place.

I choose to stay in this cottage beacuse of all that it had to offer a place you can relax , a feel of home away from home.
I must say I was more than satisfied and definately will be back for another stay
.I got to meet Elaine as she welcomed us on our arrival and she was just addorable.
No complaints, simply beautiful and would recommend this cottage lounge for any couple looking to spend a great time and family.

This is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the beach. Our cottage was clean and perfectly appointed for a relaxing stay. The property has pretty landscaping and our cottage had a furnished screened in porch. If you are going to Pompano Beach this is so much nicer than a hotel. The owner and staff are friendly and helpful.

Great location, near enough to the beach but off the road enough to be quiet. Very clean and well-kept. Nautical theme for decor. We wanted a restful, warm get-away and this hit the mark superbly!! The weather did not cooperate much, but the cottage's heat was more than adequate. Very nice accommodations!! We enjoyed it immensely!!

From the first day i booked this with Elaine it was very easy and she was very helpful, the cottage that myself and my wife had was very cozy and very clean, it was in a very quite area near the beach. The cottage had everything you needed if you were going to cook. The thing that stuck out the most with our stay was the King size bed in the cottage very comfortable slept very well had no complaints. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to have a quite stay with not all that hotel noise and drama. Two Thumbs Up :)
