Description from owner

Pineapple Place is a small, well-kept property of one and two bedroom apartments just across Ocean Blvd. from one of South Florida's award-winning public beaches with lifeguards, a fishing pier and lighthouse. We are top-rated on Trip Advisor and a multiple White Glove Award winner by the Superior Small Lodgings Association.

Enjoy a full, well-equipped kitchen, king bed in the master, bunk beds in second bedroom, books, family games, beach gear, swimming pool, BBQ area and tropical landscaping. A coin laundry is located on the property. Free wi-fi, free parking, NO resort fees. Three night minimum stay. Small dogs: inquire. Beds: 1 King Bed, 1 Double Bed, 1 Twin Bed, 1 Sofa Bed

Miles of shoreline allow for long, uninterrupted runs or walks. Looking north, you’ll see our fishing pier (a new one is under construction) and historic Hillsboro lighthouse. Shipwreck Park, with 16 awesome wrecks including the 234-foot Lady Luck, is only one mile offshore. The beachfront includes a "great lawn" with yoga classes every morning and monthly free live concerts and free movies on Friday nights. There's also an interactive fountain for kids, a concession stand including adult beverages, rental bikes, first-come first serve oceanfront charcoal grills and clean restrooms. It’s a short walk to dozens of great local restaurants, shops, boat rentals, diving/snorkeling boats, party and charter fishing boats, day spa, gym, pharmacy, banks and more.

About the area

The property is centrally located on a quiet street in the safe, ocean-side community of Pompano Beach, 15 minutes north of downtown Fort Lauderdale and 15 minutes south of Boca Raton. It’s a five-minute drive to Pompano CitiCenter shopping mall, movie theaters, state-of-the-art tennis and aquatics complex, dog park, air park for private planes and the Goodyear Blimp base, 36-hole city golf facility with its new (Jan 2013) Greg Norman signature course and driving range. The smoke-free ISLE Casino, next door to Pompano Harness Track, is a 15-minute drive. I-95 is a 10-minute drive for easy access to all South Florida business centers, shopping and attractions.

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,

Interaction with guest

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.
