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...

Thank you for reviewing Cottages by the Ocean. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and found everything clean and convenient. Actually, everyone has their own George Forman electric grill on their private porches, but we are planning to buy a nice large charcoal grill to place in the yard for everyone to share, as we have had...

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!

Please certainly do come back! So glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your review. We keep our low summer rates all the way to December 8 this year, and there are always cheap airfares to Fort Lauderdale. So take advantage whenever you need a break!

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.

Wow! Thank you for calling our Cottages "perfect." We try to live up to that word every day. I have an amazing staff that always tries to go the extra mile. Glad you found the location just right.

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...

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.

Thank you for your very nice review of Cottages by the Ocean. Your points are well-taken. Some guests like to have the smaller grills on their porches, so for safety sake the George Foreman electric grills really fit the bill. We don't seem to have a good location here for a large propane grill for guests to share (three of...

Excellent value for travellers who prefer the experience of renting a cottage rather than a hotel room; clean, quiet, well-kept, well-maintained, with a dine-in kitchen, full-size refrigerator and freezer. All other amenities: a/c and climate control units, TV and DVD player, even beach towels and lounge chairs for the nearby beach. Easy walking distance of the beach and pier and...
