About the Owner

Languages spoken:English
Response Time:Within a few hours
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.

My significant other had stayed here a few years ago, and we decided to visit, along with his granddaughter. I had seen pictures so I knew what to expect, but was so pleasantly surprised when we came. Only about a block and a half off...More

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
