Description of the Pompano Beach vacation cottage rental


Safely hidden from the mood ruining madness and conventionality of a typical tourist class hotel, this intimate 5-star beach retreat is a special boutique beach bungalow-style house with tropical colored doors, located just off the ocean at the end of 'Millionaire's row', and only a 4 minute stroll from one the most beautiful 'private-style' wide beaches in all Florida that has a stunning view of the inlet's lighthouse!

This is The Purple Seashell Guest EFFICIENCY at Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow!

At the Purple Seashell Guest Efficiency you are just steps from a lush beautiful and a very private tropical backyard which, although shared with the bungalow's "Red Coral" and "Chartreuse Starfish" one bedroom apts. offers a unique solitude and privacy hard to find anywhere else. You'll not see a sign outside Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow to assure that no one stops for information. Gated entrances on both sides of the property, tall fences and a high concrete wall in the back... makes you feel a million miles away. On vacation! The "beach escape" you are looking for!

Pompano Beach's perfect little Purple Seashell Guest Efficiency provides everything you could possibly want including a huge dose of charm. A full kitchen with a glass top stove, full size fridge, double stainless steel sinks, taupe tiles bathroom with glass shower, large closets, television and a large extra long heavy twin trundle bed with another roll out "easy-lift" twin underneath.

Just outside your door is beautiful tropical foliage and a comfy loveseat where you can curl up and read a book.

The Purple Seashell guest efficiency at Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow has the extra cleanliness and sparkle guests deserve. We boast even cleaner than any five star hotel or five star cruise ship!

Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow was selected as a "treasure" for the travel book "Treasures of Florida" now out of print.

After a day at the beach enjoy the unique and exhilarating experience of showering outside IN THE TROPICAL BACKYARD!

Area Information
You will see people walking to and from the beach all day. And we are a real dog walking neighborhood. We take our dogs on the beach only at dusk. This is beautiful "old Florida" right between lively Fort Lauderdale and posh Boca Raton where you will get away from all the madness of tourist hotels. The Purple Seashell Guest Efficiency at Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow is on a quiet side street just off the beach.

Spend the day walking the beach or sleeping under our high-end beach umbrella. Enjoy tropical cocktails at the beach Tiki Bar or.. how about a $40/hr. swedish massage by Betty's favorite therapist which is close by? Imagine fishing boats and a scuba and ocean touring shop you can walk to. The new Marriott is right up the street if you feel like strolling to dinner.

The Purple Seashell Guest Efficiency at Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow is located at the end of "Millionaire's Mile". Sit overlooking a vacant beach with palm tress swaying, at the outdoor deck of the Sea Watch Restaurant a mile down the beach. Right across 14th St. Bridge is a golf course and the new mall with Macy's, Ross, Lowe's, a bike trail and movie complex. At the other end of our street is the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway! We even have a beach resort's tennis courts across the street.

There is so much to do in this area!

Create forever memories when you stay at Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow:
~ Shower outside after the beach.
~ Sunbathe, listening to the waves while being entertained by the world's best para boarders leaping 30 feet into the sky!
~ Take an early morning walk with your cup of coffee and trace the white edge of the waves with your toe.
~ Run up to the Inlet and watch mega yachts head out to sea.
~ Blueberry pancakes on the pier?
~ Make friends with a pelican.
~ Take a quiet afternoon nap in the hammock.
~ Walk to the fishing marina at 4 PM and bring back fresh filleted fish to grill in our tropical backyard.
~ Savor clean air!
~ Discover all the different moods the ocean has to offer.
~ Enjoy a tropical drink at the beach Tiki Bar.
~ A quick drive down the beach and hop a water taxi!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Does Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow allow BIG dogs?
A: Of course! Why not? WE do not discriminate against big dogs. We have had the very BEST big dog guests! Indeed, we reserve the right to deny certain dogs and need to know about your dog, whether it is aggressive to other dogs or has a history of biting people, and in seven years, I have never had a problem with a dog! I find that the wonderful people who travel with their dogs are fastidious about taking care of their dog! So dogs with "trained owners" are welcome.
Q: What is the charge for a dog? Will you allow two dogs?
A: I charge the same rate as our local pet hotel, yet you get to keep your dog WITH YOU. It is $25/night for dog accommodations and the second dog is half price. I provide dog beds, dog bowls, doggie bags, dog shampoo, dog towels, dog covers for the sofas (yes, they can get up on the sofa as long as it is covered.) My "Murphy" is waiting to meet your dog(s). PRICE EXCEPTIONS ARE MADE DEPENDING UPON THE DOG.
Q: Do I have to leave a security deposit?
A: NO. Hotels don't do that and I operate the same as a hotel. We just keep your credit card on file. In over seven years I have never had to charge a guest for theft, damage or heavy cleaning.
Q: Do you charge an automatic cleaning fee?
A: NO. I don't think it is right to do that. Let's face it, who wants someone coming into your room everyday? I know I don't when I travel. So, if you want/need cleaning, you can just pay as you need it. It is not automatic. Hotels with daily service have to charge a higher nightly rate and we prefer to keep the rate as low as possible and let you decide if you want cleaning or not. We reserve the right to charge for damage, theft or cleaning when necessary, but in seven years I have never had to charge a guest and don't expect to. The only exception is monthly rentals when there is a $100 exit cleaning fee or guest's who have a dog who sheds a LOT. But we can talk about that in advance. Clean bath towels, clean beach towels, clean sheets and blankets are ALWAYS available for you at no additional charge. We want my guests to relax. Not worry about being charged for anything additional.
Q: Can you allow dogs and still maintain perfection?
A: Of course I can. It just takes extra work which I am willing to do to accommodate nice guests and nice dogs!
You will NEVER notice a dog odor. That's a promise. The reason is because I use a fabulous product recommended by Mr. Landlord called OdorXit which not only kills the smell but 100% of any bacteria. I firmly believe it should be used in every hotel.
Q: What makes Betty's Boutique Beach Bungalow special for dogs?
A: The property is completely fenced in. That means that you can let Fido out your side door at 6 am, without having to get dressed, find your shoes and a leash. Guests are carefully interviewed about their dogs in advance and are asked about their dog's barking habits. To date we've never had a problem. The tropical backyard is not a dog park and only gentle calm dogs have backyard privileges. The front apartment is perfect for taking your dog straight out the front door onto the street. Dogs love our beach! And there are hoses all over the property, and dog towels so you can clean up Fido before coming back in. The floors are tile. The grout is sealed with 30 year sealant. And there are lots of clean throw rugs.
Q: What if I have a itsy bitsy teenie weenie dog that should not be around bigger dogs.?
A: The backyard can be fenced off to separate dogs!
Q: Is the Tropical Backyard shared with other guests?
A: There are three guest apartments in the Bungalow. If you read the reviews you'll find how easy it is for people to find privacy in the backyard. Guests are generally active so if you want to lay out in the sun or curl up on the lounger and work on your lap top you will find doing that comfortable. The tropical backyard is also a gathering place at the end of the day for guests to meet and share a bottle of wine.
