Other Fort Lauderdale Properties cottage description

'Cottages by the Ocean' is nationally rated as a Superior Small Lodging. It is a small, well-kept property of enchanting Key West-style studio and one bedroom cottages. The Cottages 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, nail and beauty salons, drug store, gourmet fish market and more. The closest 36-hole golf facility is a five-minute drive. I-95 is a 10-minute drive for easy access to attractions and shopping throughout South Florida.

The Cottages are located on a quiet street in the safe, ocean-side community of Pompano Beach, 15 min. from downtown Fort Lauderdale. Each restored 1940s cottage has fully equipped kitchen, sleeping and living areas, vaulted ceilings with beams and paddle fans, large screened-in porches, central sun deck area and lush landscaping. The unit includes a king size bed and sleeper sofa, and can sleep up to two adults and two children. For the comfort of future guests, no smoking is allowed.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Elaine Fitzgerald is the Mom AND the Pop at Beach Vacation Rentals, and owns several vacation rentals all listed on VRBO. She was a former TV journalist and then owner of a PR and marketing firm for many years, before starting her retirement business as an innkeeper.

Why the Owner Chose Other Fort Lauderdale Properties:
This unique little complex is historic for Pompano Beach. These were the first resort cottages built here in the 1940s when everything else was Pineapple fields. We lovingly restored each cottage and they are adorable, romantic and still affordable today.
