Quaint and clean cottages. Elaine met us at our unit and explained everything and gave us some history on Pompano Beach. We loved the location, it’s on a quiet neighborhood street but close to the beach and restaurants. Felt very comfortable there and would definitely stay there again.

We have traveled to Florida each January for a brief get away from the snow and cold. We walked by this property on a previous visit and called for a visit. We fell in love with the cottage and upon returning home sent a check to reserve it for the coming years.we were not disappointed with the living arrangements that had every amenity we could ask for including a full size kitchen and a laundry area ten steps away from our screened in porch, The kitchen was fully equipped, there was a barbecue grill, beach chairs and umbrella. We were totally pleased with the upkeep of the property and the maintenance people were friendly and eager to provide for us whatever we might need. Before departing, we asked to see other properties owned and operated by this same company and we both agreed we would be happy with any of them. Some locations are closer to the ocean but all within walking distance.

We are so glad you enjoyed staying at our historic cottage complex. It is a unique and quiet enclave that is close to everything you'd want to do. Thank you so much for your beautiful review. Especially now with this pandemic, our guests appreciate that they have their own separate cottage and no common public hallways or reception areas. They can find their own spot in the sun with many activities that are easily conducive to social distancing. They can prepare meals in their own kitchen so they don't have to rely on eating out. But if they wish to, our many nearby restaurants offer outdoor dining and strictly follow enhanced cleaning protocols as we do. Our company has taken the "Safe & Clean Pledge" with special training from our industry on all of the CDC-grade products and sterilization methods to keep our staff and guests safe. We no longer rent cottages with arrivals on the same day as departures, and leave days in between. Our full page of protocols can be found using the link at the top of our website's home page. There are many new things to enjoy the next time you vacation here. Our spectacular new fishing pier is now open, as are a couple of wonderful new restaurants in the fishing village. Be well, and we look forward to seeing you again!

I felt Like I was In Key West during the Hemingway glory days.
I stayed in a studio, Unit 1 amazingly clean and the since we were 3 plus an infant I slept on the pull out sofa which I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable it was.
Short walk to the beach and other activities. Definitely will go back as soon as we can.

I'm always very leery about what you see on the internet is not what you get. This lovely accommodation exceeded our expectations! Everything from Elaine (the owner) meeting us as soon as we arrived with so many great recommendations as to where to eat/drink etc....Her recommendations were extremely helpful. Only one and half short blocks to a beautiful beach! The decor is so nice and absolutely spotless. This is now our go to !!! Thank you Elaine!

These 6 little cottages are in a tranquil setting just 1 block from the beach. They are fully equipped and even supply beach chairs and cooler. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
5 of the studio apartments have Florida rooms out front which provide a nice additional outdoor space.
We had No.4 which didn’t have a Florida room and only a Queen size bed. The bed was however the only disappointment with the accommodation as it was extremely bouncy causing disturbance to the other person when turning over and it creaked badly.
We had a very enjoyable stay and there are many good eateries close by (5 minutes walk!).

Thanks so much for staying with us and giving us a top review. It is our priority to give you a clean, safe and memorable stay at our historic cottages less than two blocks to the beach. We regret your creaky box spring and resolved it the day after we were made aware. While you did not have a screened-in porch in front of your unit like the rest of the cottages, you did have a private tropical garden terrace outside your unit in the corner of the property with umbrella table and chairs and a BBQ. Many of our guests enjoy that extra privacy and ambiance. We would love to see you again and hope you book early enough to get exactly the cottage you prefer.

The cottage was cozy and neat and we had all the amenities we could wish for. The owner and staff were very accommodating and friendly and made everything very easy for us. The location is perfect, so centrally located near the beach and shopping. So much nicer than a corporate hotel, We felt secluded and private, it was very romantic.

We are so pleased you had a wonderful stay at our cottages. Thank you for your very nice review. Yes, the cottages are romantic with your own private space, big screened-in porch, tropical gardens and little white lights in the trees at night -- all of the charm that comes with an historic property, plus today's modern traveler necessities included. Unlike staying at a hotel, there are no populated lobbies or common areas, and you have your own full kitchen so you are not dependent on having every meal out. We are Safe & Clean certified and follow all of the CDC health and safety protocols to protect our staff and guests. Glad you found your spot in the sun and fresh air with us. Please come back any time!

The setup is excellent. A nice grassy courtyard with several comfy cottages surrounding it.

The bustling surrounding city melts away and a nice quiet atmosphere takes over. Our cottage was exceptionally clean. Full kitchen, couch, bed, television, WiFi...and you have only to cross the street to be on the beach.

There is a crosswalk very close to the cottages. Getting to the beach is not difficult. Some fantastic little shops, restaurants, and bars are within walking distance. Or you can easily find your way to the larger big box stores if you prefer. Whatever our mood was in the moment we found something to satisfy it.

The staff at the cottages were great and helped with anything they could. When we first checked in, someone was kind enough to meet us at the cottage, show us inside, and talked with us about the town, beach, and cottage offerings.

I would recommend this to any person or group that is looking for a nice quiet retreat in the middle of a busy city. I can’t say enough about how relaxing the landscaping and privacy feels. Thank you!!

We sincerely appreciate your very nice review. Thank you! It really means a lot during these unique times. We are so happy to have offered you a clean, well-located, stress-free place to stay, with lots of fresh air and many nearby activities that allow for social distancing. We have always taken care to offer spotlessly clean apartments to our guests, and over the years consistently receive multiple White Glove Awards by the Superior Small Lodging Association. Now we take very seriously utilizing enhanced, hospital-grade, CDC-approved protocols needed to protect our staff and guests. We have an entire page of our protocols linked to the top of our website's home page. Unlike many other properties, Cottages by the Ocean has no common interior hallways or public reception areas. So your space is your own, stress-free, directly to the outdoors. Keep well, and we hope to see you again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cottages by the Ocean and will happily stay again. My wife's first comment when we stepped inside was, 'What a great little find!" While the interiors are obviously a bit dated (which really only adds to their charm) they are impeccably clean and the tropical landscaping is beautifully maintained. Communication from the owner, Elaine, was wonderful. Timely, complete and very personal. Elaine, Chrysie (housekeeping) and Jaime (maintenance) were so helpful, very friendly and genuinely made us feel that our satisfaction was their only priority. Very highly recommended.

Our happiest moments are when our guests return time and time again! It’s wonderful that you enjoyed your stay at our historic cottage compound. Thank you noting our maintenance chief and head housekeeper who work so hard to provide a safe and clean home away from home. They have been with us for many years and are like part of our family. Pompano Beach just keeps getting better, so we look forward to whenever you can stay with us again.

I was amazed how clean and everything you needed just like home. The staff were very helpful. I loved to be able to walk across the street to the beach. I had a small unit but it was just perfect for one person all I needed was my personal items and food. I did not have a car but there were restaurants and drug stores within walking distance. I love it and hope to return next year.

Thank you so much for staying with us and taking the time to write a lovely review. We are so happy you would like to return. When you visit us again, you will have even more fantastic restaurants to enjoy within a five-minute walk...two on the Intracoastal Waterway with beautiful sunset views, a coffee/breakfast shop near the pier and a large, theme-style Mexican restaurant with outdoor dining nd entertainment just across from the ocean. While it's a short walk to everything, you can still opt for the town's free ride service, and a six-passenger covered golf cart will pick you up right in front of the Cottages to take you up and down the beach or across the bridge to the supermarket. See you next time!

I stayed in a studio cottage which was perfect just for me. I can't complain about anything. Can't beat the location, the beach only one block, food and bars only a few blocks walking distance. The unit is well maintained, clean, and fully equipped with cooking utensils. There's even a washer and dryer available. If you're looking for a quiet, quaint, and clean vacation rental this is the place to rent. The owner is great!
