  • "The perfect spot!"

    By Guest on Jun 26, 2017

    My husband and I wanted to get away for a few days with our 2 dogs. Not an easy job to find someplace close to the beach, that takes dogs, close to lots of restaurants, and didn't cost an arm and a leg... AND ....was quiet!!! Look no further, and run, do not walk, to this beautiful cluster of cottages. We stayed in a king studio , and we were so happy the second we walked in! The air conditioner was cold, and the place was spotless!!! Everything we needed was there. We forgot a wine opener and blow dryer..... Check. They had it... You name it. Oh , and the shower was quite large with great water pressure! The bed was also so comfortable, and for 2 people that usually have insomnia, we slept so well, that we considered that part of our vacation...! The proprietress , Elaine, couldn't have been nicer , and we felt like she really cared about our comfort. We actually looked forward to coming home to this cottage, after being on the town all day. All we kept thinking about was that bed. Oh, that bed....! But , what really was so great about staying here was that Elaine cared about us even after we got home. I left my car keys which I needed desperately. If you can only imagine what that feels like. Elaine arranged to have them fedexed overnight . We can't imagine ever staying anywhere else when we come to this coast! Staying here was an absolute delight! Bravo Elaine!

  • "The Perfect Vacation Cottage!"

    By Guest on Jun 08, 2017

    We were thrilled when we opened the door to our cottage and found it even nicer than pictured! It was perfect for the two of us and actually could accommodate 3 others, if needed. Our trip was not for pleasure since a death in our family had occurred but this became our retreat from the sadness we felt. There is no doubt we will stay there again during better times! The owner, Elaine, and her staff were such a pleasure to work with!

    By Guest on Feb 16, 2017

    Our family of four (two adults, two kids) loved our stay at Cottage #3. We were there for nine days. You will notice immediately the attention to detail - cleanliness, design, upkeep, both inside and out. It is literally set up for you to walk into your home away from home. We hosted our parents for supper - used the grill and the kitchen twice. We had everything we needed - cutlery, plates, wine glasses - everything. The air conditioning kept the cottage comfortable. My whole family appreciated the screened in porch. The setting is tranquil, and all of the other neighbours/tenants were so friendly. The beach is a block and a half away. We had beach chairs, toys, etc. - again, everything we needed for a fun family day at the beach. We will be back again (assuming they are not sold out!), Thank you!

I am a retired TV news reporter - turned innkeeper and just love taking care of our guests who come from all over the world to stay in our beautiful beachfront community. I want you to have the best vacation ever, so we take great care to make everything special in your "home away from home." I created places that I would love to stay at they are very clean and well-appointed. Our wonderful staff always goes the extra mile for you. Year after year we win the White Glove Award for 100-percent excellence in housekeeping from the Superior Small Lodging Association. We operate five small properties altogether....each just a few blocks apart and all within a block or two from the beach. ...23 apartments and cottages total. I am hands-on to make sure everything is just right. The Pompano Beach Chamber awarded us 2009 Small Business of the Year, and we are grateful and honored to do whatever we can to give back to our wonderful, safe, family friendly community.
