This charming complex of six fully restored 1940s studio and one-bedroom cottages is nationally rated as a Superior Small Lodging. It's less than two blocks from our award-winning beach with lifeguards, lighthouse and fishing pier. Enjoy all the comforts of home with king beds, full kitchens, free Internet, BBQ and laundry facilities, screened porches overlooking tropical gardens. Cottages by the Ocean is a small, well-kept property of charming Key West-style studio and one-bedroom cottages. We are a White Glove award-winner and nationally rated as a Superior Small Lodging. Each restored 1940s cottage has a full kitchen, king or queen bed and sleeper sofa, lush, tropical garden views, large screened-in porches or open patio, private BBQ grills, with a central sundeck and coin laundry on site. The Cottages are centrally located on a quiet street in the safe, ocean side community of Pompano Beach, 15 minutes North of downtown Fort Lauderdale and 15 minutes South of Boca Raton. They are less than two blocks from one of South Florida's award-winning Blue Wave beaches (with life guards), and a short walk to dozens of restaurants, shops, nightspots, public fishing pier, snorkel/dive boats, charter fishing boats, jet ski and boat rentals, gym, day spa, drug store, gourmet fish market and more.

This property in Pompano Beach is private, very clean and well maintained. It's perfect for those who want to be close to the beach and yet have a cozy comfortable, uncrowded place to stay. It's got a relaxing vibe. This is a member property of Florida Superior Small Lodging and

After reading the reviews I was satisfied to book this one. I booked directly with Cottages by the Ocean and not the travel websites to skip the middle guy with processing fees. We were looking for certain criteria and Cottage by the Ocean fit the description to a T. We have a

So glad you enjoyed your stay, and thank you for taking the time to give us a top review! We truly are in an ideal area, and it's getting better all the time. We hope you come back to see the newest improvements to our oceanfront community - all within a five minute walk to Cottages by the Ocean! In March, our state-of-the-art fishing pier is set to open, with all of the amenities you'd find in the nation's best piers, along with public artwork gracing its length. Also set to open in March is a fabulous new seafood oceanfront restaurant right next to the pier. Underway now is an architectural and public art transformation of our Atlantic Blvd bridge over the Intracoastal waterway. And on the SE corner of the bridge, a 2-acre dining and entertainment area and riverfront promenade is underway, to be completed in 2019, also just a five minute walk from our property. Hope to see you back soon in sunny, Pompano Beach!

We stayed here for the second time while visiting family. The cottage is well-equipped and convenient for walks to the ocean and restaurants. Elaine has a binder FULL of recommendations and tips which is really helpful. My husband (a reluctant traveler), asked if we could stay

We really appreciate the thoughtfulness of your review, and happy that you visited us again. There is no better feeling to us than when a "reluctant traveler" like your husband, feels comfortable and wants to return. You are welcome back any time!

Everything was great. Much to do in and around the area. Many very good restaurants. Would stay there again if we were going that way. Cottage was very clean and furniture was in very good shape. Just a short walk to the beach. When you arrive you have a code to open the

We loved having you and you are welcome back any time. Thanks for a great review! Yes, Pompano Beach is in a super location with lots to do within a five minute walk of the Cottages and our other beach area properties. The city has just started to turn our Atlantic Blvd bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway to the beach into a spectacular piece of artwork and it should be done before the end of this year, along with a walking promenade along both sides of the waterway. A new waterfront restaurant and entertainment complex is opening along that waterway promenade with plenty of space for yachts to pull up and dock. Water Taxi service began last December and is now expanding, with connecting service to Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi. A new seafood restaurant with rooftop ocean views is under construction right next to our fishing pier, which is also being turned into a magnificent state-of-the art pier. The new Beach House restaurant, casual and right on the ocean, is an overwhelming success. And everyone loves Pompano's new public beachfront, serene and tasteful, with lots of amenities that our guests love. Do come back!
