Great place to stay with top notch and classy owner. My husband and I travel to Florida every year. We usually prefer the gulf side but this year our hearts pulled us in the direction of Fort Lauderdale where our sons moved in 2015. We usually stay in hotels but I wanted to find something a little different with more... More

PROPERTY’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2016

I've traveled to Ft. Lauderdale to SCUBA in Pompano Beach for over 5 years. This year I did not have a friend to stay with, so I decided to rent from Cottages by the Ocean. I was so pleased. These darling cottages, just one street up from Pompano Dive Shop, were absolutely darling. A small, but fully equipped kitchen, large... More

We loved staying in cottage #4 at Cottages by the Ocean. The owner Elaine met with us to introduce us to the place. Really enjoyed meeting and visiting with Elaine and speaking with Patti on phone. Booking on Tripadvidor doesn't provide management our info because of third part privacy clausrs, so luckily I contacted the cottage directly to confirm reservation... More

So glad you were able to relax at out Cottages after your amazing body-building competition. Thank you for such a nice review. Yes, the full kitchen in Studio 4 is a trade-off to having an outside patio versus a screened in porch as do our other Cottages. They do have smaller kitchenettes with full size refrigerator and stove, but no... More

Our stay at the Cottages by the Ocean was very pleasant. The cottage was very clean and had everything you needed. The location was close to the beach and many resturants. There also was a Publix supermarket and several pharmacies located nearby.

Stayed a week at the cottage and found it had a great location. They were very clean and comfortable. The only complaint was that one of the requirements were to wash all the towels and bedding that you used, except for the one set you used the last night. If this is a requirement then I do not think you... More

Thank you for reviewing Cottages by the Ocean. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and found everything clean and convenient.

The property had great access to the beach! It felt like a safe cocoon in the midst of a busy Pompano Beach. And the price was right, well within budget. We would definitely stay again for a long weekend!

Perfect cottage in a very short distance to the beach, supermarket and street connection to the mainland with interstate highways and located on the coastal A1A road to Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale. Always a recommendable location for a familiy holiday in an own private cottage with a very nice decoration.
