rest for the senses
Have stayed at 2 Sisters twice, once with friends, once with spouse. Comfortable, all conveniences of home, private, beautifully quiet. The two sisters who own it have personally taken time to build, furnish and decorate the house. The small bay you see in the pics is deep, clear and full of life. Snorkel in the morning, read tons, short distance from white non-populated beaches, local life, ferrys to other islands.
Prepackaged food is expensive as all shipped in but that is the worst of it - organic farm short drive - fresh veggies and fruit, fresh baked bread twice a week, as well as sauces, chutneys, pestos from farm ingredients. 2 sisters has full kitchen so cooked great dinners most nights. Dry goods and some foods can be brought in check on bag - helps with food costs.
Great quaint local library has internet access if you HAVE to. 2 sisters keeps a cell there for emergencies if yours doesn't work there. Minutes are expensive. Car rental possible straight from small airport. Rentals are heavily used. We handed them cash and left the keys under the mat when we returned to the airport. Yes, it is that local, approachable and locals largely know each other. Do Tip.
If you are a cruise lover or an all inclusive type- this is a comfortable home-like dwelling in a beautiful, breathtaking, natural setting. If you are the aforementioned, you likely won't be reading this anyway but know there is a certain amt. of hands on here. Restaurants are expensive so meals were part of the hands on for us. Local liquor store on way from airport. Beer a bit pricey - we were rum buyers. When in Rome. If weather is good, waters calm, local fish available.
Beaches largely have very few folks so be smart about where and when you swim. Don't underestimate currents. Sun is strong. Bring strong sunscreen and deet for noseeums. They can be tough at given seasons.
Plane ride from Ft. Laud is short - bout an hour. Small plane - aisle with seat on either side. No overhead, no bathroom. FYI if those small planes freak you out. Overall, pretty easy to get to. There is no highly commercial area close by so if you are a big night lifer on vaca, you will be driving to find some.
Lots of nature, lots of beauty, lots of no sirens, few motors, an all around break for the senses. As a city dweller, this was a rest for the soul. You can hear yourself think for a change. You can slow down and recharge. Sunsets stunning. Loved 2 Sisters!
