Cottages by the Ocean
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 August 2014

My mom and I stayed at Cottages by the Ocean for a week during the summer . It is a beautiful place with excellent location. We really enjoy the beach and we could enjoy restaurants, supermarkets and shopping centers. It is very easy to travel by bus everywhere. The place is very clean and confortable. The owner is a very sweet person. Affordable price.

We wanted a place within walking distance of the beach and non-tourist stores. Check. We wanted a place within a short drive of our expectant daughter's home. Check. We wanted a place that had a kitchen and solid wifi. Check. We wanted a place where we could stay for a month affordably and work (when we had to) and vacation (when we could). Check and check.

We will book here again whenever we have long stays near our daughter (and new granddaughter).

Things to improve? Only one: either sweep the paved paths below the trees frequently or supply a push broom so we can do it ourselves. Some of the trees dropped berries that we couldn't avoid (and therefore tracked into the cottage and had to keep sweeping off the floors). It would have been far easier to have had a large outdoor broom so we could have swept the path ourselves. I don't really expect an off-site maintenance staff to keep up with prolific trees, so let us do that alongside with doing our own dishes and laundry.

We can't wait to return.

Our third stay at two of the properties owned and managed by the same person. Excellent location for golf, tennis and swimming. Eclectic choice of restaurants, super markets and shopping centers.
Professionally managed property for reservations and extended stay.

Room Tip: We've enjoyed our stay in three different suites.

I stayed at Cottages By The Ocean for 5 weeks and it was great, it really felt like a second home! Everything from the comfy bed to the actual location of the rental was great. The place was very clean. If you ever have an issue with something or even a question, Elaine (owner) is a phone call away and she is a sweetheart, she made sure everything during my stay was perfect and it sure was!

Lovely place to stay in the Pompano area. Lots of homey comfort and amenities. They even gave us great advise on the best things to see and do in the area. Loved our stay and will certainly return. Thanks for everything!

My husband & I relocated across the country in a very short window so didn't have a lot of time to find a place to stay for a month. Lucky for us Elaine was one of the first to answer our inquiry about Cottage By The Ocean short term rental. We were so very pleased when we first drove up, from the adorable courtyard to the spacious one bedroom cottage (with large full kitchen) which sleeps 4 since couch is a pull out. She has made sure you have all that you need even for the beach! Oh speaking of the beach it's a short walk across the street! Great value too. Elaine likes to meet her guest in person and make sure everything is perfect! Love love love this little Cottage by the Ocean and highly recommend to anyone for a weekend, week or longer....we will for sure look her up again! Thanks again Elaine for all your help.

Room Tip: Unit #3 is a one bedroom.

What a surprise to find these lovely cottages in the heart of Pompano Beach but you feel like you are in Key West! Loved the screened in porch where I could have my morning coffee and look out at the grassy area and relax. The inside of the cottages had all that was needed for my husband and I to enjoy our month there. The fact that we could walk to the beach, the Pier, Walgreens, Publix and restaurants was a huge plus. We could get in our exercise and not have to drive everywhere. The folks that were renting the other cottages were so nice that we even had a cocktail party before we all headed on to home or in our case to the West Coast of Florida. We liked it so much that we have reserved it for February of 2015.
