A true vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is fantastic for large parties and the owner is very easy to work with. We booked this home for my husbands 40th birthday and invited 4 other couples. We had a wonderful, relaxing time. Plenty of space, amazing views, and all the amenities you need for a large group. We spent most of our time in the pool overlooking the water. You will not be disappointed!

2nd wonderful trip for our 18!

  • 5 of 5

We took our family of 18 for the 2nd time to this wondeful facility! Kevin has done so much with the facility since his purchase of it making it even better than ever! The ocean side pool with the tiki hut along with the beautiful sandy beach make the atmosphere even more wonderful! Staff was great when we needed them in response and the venue boat and its captain did a superb job on taking us fishing with fantastic results! We will return in the near future for sure for our 3rd wonderful experience to see what Kevin has done with our favorite vacation spot!

Dream come true wedding/vacation venue!!

  • 5 of 5

We had our wedding at this incredible place! It all went perfect and we couldn't have had a better venue. My husband and I and our bridal party stayed here for the week and it was everything we had hoped it would be! Keeping in contact w owner and manager was so simple and everything you would need was here for you! I highly recommend this place for anyone to visit while they stay in the keys and I would love for us to go back to this house every year!!

Perfect Venue for a Destination Wedding

  • 5 of 5

While still glowing from my daughter's wedding this past Sat., I am compelled to share with others just how perfect this property really is for a wedding venue or family reunion destination! We were able to share this amazing home with my family for 10 days while also hosting the rehearsal dinner, wedding and reception. I searched many VRBO properties and local venues before deciding on SD2 and could not be happier with our decision. I am not sure I could have found a more perfectly located, relaxing and stunning spot for Jill and Ryan's special day. The caretaker, Joe, was attentive and took care of any needs. Kayaking, swimming, fishing and snorkeling are literally at your front dock. 3 houses, 3 pools and plenty of landscaped space provided the perfect setting for the making of amazing memories. Kevin, the owner, is always available by phone or email and so easy to work.This home is simply breathtaking! It was sheer pleasure enjoying this home as the base for my daughter's special day. 5+ stars and my highest recommendations for this property!
