Cottages by the Ocean is a small, well-kept property of charming Key West-style cottages in Pompano Beach or the North side of Fort Lauderdale. The King Studio is great for up to 3 people: couples, singles, small families, biz travelers. Less than 2 blocks from Pompano's sensational new beachfront - one of S Fla's prettiest public beaches with life guards. Short walk to dozens of restaurants, shops, nightspots, snorkel/dive/fishing boats, jet ski, boat rentals. Top-rated on TripAdvisor. White Glove Award winner by the Superior Small Lodgings Assn. This is an historic property for Pompano Beach. Built in the 1940s, this small complex comprised the first 'resort' cottages when everything else was pineapple fields. It is also a Certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation...Cottages by the Ocean is a small, well-kept property of charming Key West-style cottages in Pompano Beach or the North side of Fort Lauderdale.

This is an historic property for Pompano Beach. Built in the 1940s, this small complex comprised the first 'resort' cottages when everything else was pineapple fields. It is also a Certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation for native and migrating birds and butterflies in a special program for businesses, backyards and schools. As a multiple White Glove Award-winner, this property is very clean, with lush landscaping and everything you need in your home-away-from-home. Enjoy full kitchens, free Wi-fi, king bed plus sleeper sofa in living area, beach gear and a host of amenities to make you feel right at home. A coin laundry and BBQ area are also on property. Miles of shoreline allow for long, uninterrupted runs or walks. Looking north, you’ll see our fishing pier (a new one is under construction) and historic Hillsboro lighthouse. Shipwreck Park, with 16 awesome wrecks including the 234-foot Lady Luck, is only one mile offshore. The beachfront includes a 'great lawn' with yoga classes every morning and monthly free live concerts and free movies on Friday nights. There's also an interactive fountain for kids, a concession stand including adult beverages, rental bikes, first-come first serve oceanfront charcoal grills and clean restrooms. It’s a short walk to dozens of great local restaurants, shops, boat rentals, diving/snorkeling boats, party and charter fishing boats, day spa, gym, pharmacy, banks and more. 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. It’s a five-minute drive to the new Pompano CitiCenter shopping mall, movie theaters, state-of-the-art tennis and aquatics complex, dog park, air park for private planes and the Goodyear Blimp base, 36-hole city golf facility with its new (Jan 2013) Greg Norman signature course and driving range. The smoke-free ISLE Casino, next door to Pompano Harness Track, is a 15-minute drive. I-95 is a 10-minute drive for easy access to all South Florida business centers, shopping and attractions.

Interaction with guests
Proprietor Elaine Fitzgerald tries to greet as many of our guests as possible upon arrival to get them settled and answer their questions (they are asked to give her a call when they land at the airport, or if driving in, when they are about an hour out). There is no office on site. If they arrive very late, they have their own code for keyless entry for self-check-in, and they call Elaine the next morning once they're up. After arrival, we are available when needed. Elaine’s cell phone number and our maintenance chief's cell number are included on the very first page of the Guest Book on the coffee table. Guests know they can call any time for assistance.

About the neighbourhood
The Cottages are located on a quiet street in the safe, oceanside community of Pompano Beach, 15 minutes North of downtown Fort Lauderdale and 10 minutes South of Boca Raton. They are less than two blocks from one of South Florida's best public 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 spas, drug store, gourmet fish market and more. It is a five minute drive to the new Pompano CitiCenter mall and 36-holes of golf. The new ISLE Casino next to Pompano Harness Track is a 15-min drive. I-95 is a 10-minute drive for easy access to attractions and shopping throughout S. Florida.
Getting around
You don't have to have a car, but it is highly recommended because there are so many wonderful things to do in the area. Also, during summer and Fall, a taxi round trip from the airport (25 minutes each way - $120 Round Trip) can cost almost as much as renting an economy car for a whole week. Taxis are expensive and unreliable here and rental cars are cheap, except in Winter season, mid-December through Easter. Uber is always an option, and we are also one block from the public bus stop. The North-South Tri-Rail commuter train is a poor option because it runs many miles West of the beach areas. If driving, I-95 is a 10-minute drive for easy access to all South Florida business centers, shopping and attractions. We are centrally located just
