Great home, as good as advertised

  • 4 of 5

This is a great home in an upscale gated community with two pools. Six minute walk to the beach. The best equipped rental home we have ever had, and we've had many. Clean and well maintained except the microwave went out on Wed. and after several calls the property manager still failed to get it repaired or get us a loaner. Overall, however, we'd go back again without hesitation. Love the Donut Hole and Shrimp Basket restaurants for family dining. Kids loved the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise.

Owner's Response: These were great renters, and I am extremely sorry that we suffered a non-recovered appliance failure. In the future, I hope people will simply call me with such issues (everybody has my phone number) and I will ride the maintenance people to get it covered, or even purchase and install one myself. The next renter noted to me that it was still broken this week. so I finally got them to install a counter top unit until we can get a high-quality replacement. Jeez- reviews on all these units are depressing.

Beautiful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

I would like to revise my review since I know Steve Apple, the owner, has taken great effort to rectify everything I mentioned in my previous review. He has resolved or is working to resolve the issues and I'm sure the next renters will have a very pleasant experience in this beautiful home. Thank you!

2 the Beach

  • 3 of 5

Needed repairs upon arrival. Refrigerator was leaking water, it was repaired but continued to leak water. Door handle in upstairs bedroom fell off. It was repaired. Disabled/handicap hand rails in down stairs bathroom were stuck on tile with double sided tape! One rail was no longer sticking to wall. Guess they were just for show - certainly not to be used by someone who needs them! When 'repaired,' one was replaced with suction cup hand rail. Still not appropriate for someone who needs to use them for support. Kitchen was well supplied with cooking utensils, dishes and pots and pans. Chairs in living room and rugs were very dirty. Living room window shades were not working and/or broken. Comfortable house overall, just needs better cleaning and repair. Really nice location.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this place. We had children aging from age 1 to 13 and the place was perfectly child friendly, to even include step stools! There was plenty of room for all of us (13 total) and the beach supplies were awesome. I will be back next year!

Beautiful beach home that has everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at 2 the Beach! It was a beautiful home and fit our 2 families with 2 kids perfectly (even extra room!). The king bedrooms both had walk in closets that we used as baby nurseries. It was very clean and was in a quiet gated community with 2 pools (each about a 3 minute walk). It also had a little path that took you to a road to the beach (beach was about a 7-10 minute walk). All you have to bring are beach towels, house has everything. Close to Pompano Joe's Restaurant! We highly recommend this home and want to go back already!

The property was absolutely stunning. It was very roomy for the large group vacationing. The place was spotless. The neighborhood was very quiet with very nice neighbors across the street. I didn't interact with the owner but Sandcastle the rental group was very helpful with getting me into the house about half and hour earlier. The location was great, very close to the beach. I would recommend this beach house to anyone. I look forward to returning to this area in the near future.
