“business trip extension”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

We were very pleased with the cottage and the location. Pompano's newly remodeled public beach area was very nice. The cottage was very clean and meant our needs extremely well. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Our first time renting from Elaine. It won't be the last. We felt truly relaxed and serene in our little cottage. We brought our little dachsund with us and had a truly wonderful stay. If you love the feel of a quaint little home, this is the place to stay. There is a wonderful garden in the courtyard to enjoy the birds and butterflies from your screened in porch, a great way to start the day.

The cottage and the location of the cottage was very nice. We appreciated most of all the quietness and the feeling of security. There were some old areas inside the cottage...i.e. new tiling in the bathroom would have been nice, but overall our stay was comfortable.

Room Tip: There was no pool or fitness center for this property/location.

We live in Pompano and had to have our house tented for termites. We talked to Patti and she was fantastic. We have two small dogs and two cats. She set us up with two cabins 4 (just for cats) and 6. Since we live inland it was like going on vacation. Beautiful cabins dating back to the 50's but updated to today's standards without losing the charm. The owner met us when we checked in and we had a great internet connection. I worked from #6 and was very happy. Clean neat and everything you need for a beach vacation. Whether you are looking for a place to stay for vacation or a situation like ours, I doubt you could find anything better at twice the price. We love the place and hope to come back for a long weekend when we don't have the issue at home.

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.
