Pompano Beach bungalow description

It's cooler at the beach!
Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow is a charming luxury beach bungalow-style house with three separate apartments each with their own tropical colored front and back doors. Discover all the different moods the ocean has to offer! Enjoy an early morning cup of coffee watching the bright orange sunrise over the ocean. Whether is is golf, grilling fresh fish in the backyard, a tropical cocktail at the Tiki Bar or a two hour ($80) massage close by, this is the perfect location! Each apartment has beach chairs and beach towels. A high-end UV beach umbrella is provided for an full day of reading and drifting asleep while listening to the waves. Sounds great doesn't it?
Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow is located on a quiet little street right off Ocean Drive (A1A), at the end of 'Millionarie's Row'. Across the street is a very large private-style beach we call 'Lighthouse Beach', one of the most beautiful beaches in all South Florida. Not only because it is a wide-style beach, without any traffic, or because of the view of the Lighthouse, but because you are literally 'entertained' on our beach by one of the best para boarding schools. People come from all over the world to learn this growing sport. So as you are dozing off to sleep you'll see many colorful kite-chutes and their paraboarders flying high in the air.
At Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow you'll find the luxury you want. High thread count sheets, plush towels, choice of pillows, lovely soaps, a high end toaster oven (I don't know about you but this is important to me!) KitchenAid cookware and gadgets, glass top stove, quality glass stemware and a blender. Enjoy breakfast outside on the screened in patio or an evening stroll tracing the waves as you walk.
There are also some unique things you can do at Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow. Like on a hot summer day, after a beach visit, shower outside, and fall asleep rocking in the hammock. It's doing unusual things that give us 'forever memories'. So when was the last time you were this relaxed?

This is a perfect location... take a drive up Millionaire's Row to the Pier in Deerfield Beach or run down to Lauderdale-by-the-Sea for homemade ice cream.

Shopping and strolling is plentiful. Spend an evening on Las Olas Boulevard, or at the very lovely Galleria. Whole Foods Market is 20 minutes away, Pompano Beach Golf Course right across the bridge and the hammock is right in your backyard!

Right across the 14th Street Bridge is the new Pompano Beach Mall with Macy's, Ross, Sears and more.

A NEW DOG PARK is just inside the entrance to the golf course,
right across the bridge.

Cort's Massage offers hour massages by expert therapists for $40/hour! I have been going there for fifteen years. Ask for 'Mykola' a med student who specializes in deep tissue massage.

My absolute FAVORITE ESCAPE is The Sea Watch, a beautiful old wooden restaurant right ON the beach with an unbeatable PANORAMIC view of the ocean! It's just a couple minutes drive down the beach and is now offering a wonderful early bird lobster dinner. Have lunch outside overlooking the ocean. This is a really special place!

My goal is for your stay at Betty's Beach Bungalow to be a wonderful 'forever memory!' We have ALL FIVE STAR REVIEWS.

Please call so I can tell you more! I will send more photos.

A fun thing to do is walk on the beach, come back and take an outdoor shower and then fall asleep in the hammock! There is a 15 foot cement wall in the back and wood fences which means GREAT privacy. The fishing boats are practically within walking distance. Grill your fresh fish in the tropical backyard. The Beach Bungalow has three separate apartments and they all share the tropical backyard, however you will more than likely find it available for your use whenever you want it.

                          What creates a 'forever memory'? It's special feelings stamped on your heart. Finding places others don't know about. Sitting amongst the yachts at dusk with the best key lime pie you have ever tasted. Smelling the ocean as you sip a margherita. Or falling asleep wet in the hammock after a run on the beach and an outdoor shower in the tropical backyard. We want your vacation to be a wonderful 'forever memory'. Close by at my other vacation rental property is a heated swimming pool that is often available for your enjoyment.

                          NOTE: Our calendar does not show FULL until all three apartments are booked. We have two one bedroom apartments and an efficiency at Walk-on-the-Beach. These lovely beach bungalow apartments can be booked separately or together. We offer the efficiency at a cut rate price when you book one of the other apartments. This is perfect for grown children or in-laws as they have their own kitchen and bath providing you with more privacy. There is a dog park VERY close by!


                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: Hello! I'm Betty. When I saw this charming beach location, I knew exactly what I wanted to do! My goal was to turn it into something completely different and more upscale from any other vacation rental in the area! It became outrageous fun turning it into the very special place that it is now. I like to pay attention to detail and you'll often see me often planting flowers, polishing windows and being the perfectionist I am. My husband owns a golf course, we have no children, so I love making beds and having my guests ooo and ahhh when they walk in. With a degree in fine art I've been a graphic designer all my life. Now I get to transfer my creative skills into something people will really enjoy. I was thrilled when Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow was selected as a 'treasure' for the travel book 'Treasures of Florida'. I have 'Walk-on-the-Beach Vacation Rentals' in both Pompano-by-the-Sea and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and all are unique. Most importantly, I want to treat my guests the way I want to be treated on vacation! It is my goal that your stay at Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow becomes a 'forever memory' that will last a lifetime. Please ask me to send you what past guests have written in the guest books! We also cater to corporate guests who demand upscale accommodations. Can't wait to meet you! Your seaside hostess, Betty Francis

                          Why the Owner Chose Pompano Beach:
                          I absolutely fell in love with this beach bungalow house less than a block to the beach, in an area between posh Palm Beach and wild Ft. Lauderdale. I found nice people walking to and from the beach. I put up black and white striped awnings, hung a hammock and had a wonderful time turning it into a perfectly charming dollhouse! Careful attention to detail, lots of love and a ton of money created Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow which has people constantly telling me they want to copy what I did in their own home! I found my true passion with this property and can literally spend all day grooming, planting flowers and cleaning. I am a golf widow, so I get a thrill watching my guests enjoy Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow. This is a perfect location! Now my local spa offers my Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow guests hour long therapeutic Swedish Massage treatments for ... $40/hour! Two hours for $80. Yes, this IS YOUR beach home away from home where you can truly get away and RELAX. Come indulge yourself with clean air, salt water, sunshine warmth, papayas, long walks on the beach and ever changing colorful skies!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                          My guests write that that they particularly enjoy the close proximity to the beach without paying high prices. I provide beach towels, beach chairs and a large luxury beach umbrella. Staying at Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow is like a boutique luxury hotel adding the comforts of home with a full size kitchen which includes a full sized fridge, glass top stove, high end toaster oven, blender, KitchenAid cookware, high thread count sheets and much more. I treat my guests the way I want to be treated when I travel.... like a VIP guest! 'Five Star Clean' are not just words. Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow is kept in perfect condition and 'perfectly' clean! My guests will never find dust under or behind their beds. Unlike hotels, the mattress pad and bed spread are always fresh. Who else does that? Sun on the lounger or enjoy shade to read a book. BBQ or rock yourself to sleep in the hammock. There's even an outdoor shower for rinsing off salt water and sand when you come back from the beach. This is an absolutely charming beach cottage and very private. Across the street you will find a Tiki Bar and one of the best para boarding schools in the world. Best of all are our high end mattresses and high thread count sheets. A good night's sleep is a given at Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow!
