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

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

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

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.

Very cute cottage! We stayed in the king studio and it was very roomy and very clean. The bed was comfortable, and there was plenty of space to eat at the table or relax on the couch. The bathroom is on the small side, but this is made up for by a large vanity with great lighting! We loved having... More

The location was great, one block to the beach and they have everything you need, lawn chairs, cooler, beach towels. The unit itself was very clean and had everything you would need. The shower is big and lots of pressure. Washer and dryer are there to use. All of the units except #4 have a screened in porch which is... More
