#2 of 30 Specialty lodging in Pompano Beach
This charming complex of fully restored 1940s studio and one-bedroom cottages is located in the heart of Pompano's beach area, less than two blocks to the beach with lifeguards, historic lighthouse and fishing pier. We are a multiple White Glove Award winner by the Superior Small Lodging Association and part of Beach Vacation Rentals' group of top-rated properties, named 2019 Small Business of the Year for Tourism by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce. Enjoy a full kitchen, king or queen bed and sleeper sofa, lush, tropical garden views, large screened-in porches or open patio, private BBQ grills, central sundeck, coin laundry on site and free wi-fi and parking. Well-behaved small dogs: inquire about pet fee. The Cottages are centrally located on a quiet street in the safe, ocean side community of Pompano Beach, a short walk to the city's spectacular new $80M oceanfront promenade that's full of family friendly amenities. We are 15 minutes North of downtown Fort Lauderdale and 15 minutes South of Boca Raton. It’s a five-minute drive to the Pompano CitiCenter shopping mall, movie theaters, state-of-the-art tennis and aquatics complexes, dog park, historic air park for private planes and the Good Year Blimp base, 36-hole municipal golf facility with Greg Norman course and driving range. The smoke-free ISLE Casino and Pompano Harness Trac is a 15-minute drive. I-95 is a 10-minute drive for easy access to all South Florida business centers, shopping and attractions.

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!

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 are so very glad you enjoyed your stay. When our guests visit us, they are never renting from an absentee owner. I am hands on, live ten minutes away, and am accessible to our guests 24/7, along with our full-time maintenance chief and long-time staff. We have not had any turnover in many years. We are always available to handle the smallest question or biggest need. For this and many other reasons, our group of extended stay boutique lodgings, including Cottages by the Ocean, was named 2019 Small Business of the Year for Tourism and Hospitality by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber. It would be our pleasure to serve you again when you visit in the future.

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!

Very clean well kept property. Quiet and relaxing. Stay here before a hotel. Across the street from fabulous beaches. This is my second time here and I will be back again next year. I have recommended this place to my friends.

Thank you so much for your multiple stays with us, and your plans to return. There is no finer compliment to our staff and me. We are happy you enjoy the Cottages and the great location. In the heart of the beach area, with its $80M in recent improvements, you are in the midst of so many fun activities, both outdoor and cultural, but can always come back to your quiet cottage and relax as much or as little as you like. We look forward to seeing you again!
