5 Two Palms

Review Submitted: February 23, 2010 Date of Stay: January 2010

From the wrath of Hurricane Ida –Two Palms has been restored. The house is beautiful, inviting, comfortable and complete. This was our fourth year at Indian Pass and our second at Two Palms. It was wonderful to be back and the house was even more beautiful than before. We went seeking solitude and a place to rejuvenate ourselves. Two Palms provided. The weather was perfect as always-for January- cool sunny days, starry nights, flaming sunsets, brilliant thunderstorms and howling winds that brought abundant shells to the shores. Two Palms was the perfect shelter to take it all in. The white sand beach is wide and beautiful and we could walk for hours in either direction with our Lab and have it all to ourselves. The kitchen was fully equipped right down to the last detail. The furnishings were new, attractive and comfortable, and the beds, new linens and towels offered the pampered finishing touch. The front porch was our favorite spot providing shelter from sun, wind or rain. The winter sun rises and sets on the porch and we brought an extra blanket just for that purpose. Moving the hot tub to the lower front porch was a brilliant idea and so well thought out, creating another vantage point to enjoy the sunset and the moonrise. Within minutes we could have our kayaks in the water either in Saint Joe’s Bay or the bay at Indian Pass. We were even lucky enough to paddle with the dolphins at sunset. Port St. Joe is 20 minutes west with great grocery shopping at the Piggly Wiggly, a wine shop and restaurants. Our favorite is the Coastal Grill. We picked up groceries on the way in and only had to go into town once for supplies and dinner out. Thirty minutes east will take you in to Apalachicola, an old Florida experience with a rich history, quaint shops and wonderful restaurants. Two Palms is the perfect retreat. The Burns and their staff are friendly and eager to be of assistance and are only a phone call away. But with this fully equipped, beautiful home we didn’t have a need or want for anything. Thank you for another wonderful escape to Indian Pass. See you next year!

Owner's Response: Frank and Sandy,

Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to share your experience staying at Two Palms.Your kind words are deeply appreciated. The months we have spent refurbishing and upgrading Two Palms are well worth it when we hear from folks like you. It gives us a great feeling of accomplishment that not only is Two Palms a very special place but that we made the right decision by managing it ourselves. We can pamper our guests and give them a truly value added vacation experience. Our staff will stop at nothing to create the best possible vacation for our renters.With input like yours we can reach our goal of getting better each and every week.
Please come back soon!
Regards and Thank You!!!

AMAZING! A slice of HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
I don't know where to begin. From my first contact via e-mail(asking about availability) to the day we sadly left our rental.... Peter, Lydia, and Donna by far exceeded our every expectation. They take customer service to a whole new level!
Lydia was so kind and patient answering some of my beach questions. While vacationing, Peter called to check in on us to make sure everything was in working order and to see if there was anything he could help us with. He gave us numerous ideas. We couldn't fit them all in so we decided on shark fishing and an airboat ride. We had a great time with both activities! Donna is a GEM! She went out of her way to accommodate us. I drove from MN with my 2 kids, 4 month old granddaughter, and 2 dogs. Needless to say, I was frazzled by the time we got to Florida. The rest of our party flew in. We had a 2 hour wait to meet up with the rest of our party and no where to go to wait out the time. Donna was so helpful and let us unload the car at Two Palms even though they were still cleaning. Then she told me that the other house, for some fluke reason, was not being rented until the middle of the week and offered us the use of that home and the pool while we were waiting for the rest of our party to join us, or until Two Palms was ready to go. That was a blessing!! Donna also gave us great advice when it came to local restaurants
and help in finding scalloping trips. She also personally called to check in mid-week to see if she could be of any help. Like I said....top notch service!
As for the house and beach, the pictures do not do it justice. The house is very clean, "homey", comfortable , and well stocked! The hot tub on the deck was such a wonderful added bonus! I did not think we would use it since it was so warm out. Boy was I wrong! We sat in there every night. It was so relaxing and the view of the night sky was breathtaking! Nothing like listening to the waves crash while staring up at a sky lit up with stars! Perfect end to a fun-filled day! The beach is where we spent most of our time. It was so peaceful and quiet. We relaxed around a campfire by the water at dusk and watched the dolphins swim by during the day. Some days they were within 20-30 feet from us! What a sight!!
I highly recommend Two Palms and will definitely be back!
Thank you Peter, Lydia, and Donna for making this our BEST VACATION EVER!

Look no further,you have found your vacation oasis

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a blissful week at Two Palms, and hopefully we will return one day! My husband and I are insanely busy professionals, and unfortunately, are not able to “part the seas” at our respective jobs very often to get away. When we do, it is critical that the vacation go flawlessly, and I am happy to tell you that the week at Two Palms exceeded our expectations! The house is perfect- clean, bright, with gorgeous ocean views. The concierge service was very helpful, and made us feel as if we weren’t alone- we used the concierge a couple of times while we were there for a couple of random items and were very impressed with the professionalism and service. The beach was fabulous- many times, we were the only ones on the beach. The house was well appointed and stocked with everything we needed. We prepared most of our meals in the kitchen, and I had all the pots/pans I needed to create meals. Because the house is pet friendly, we brought our dog, and you will be pleased to know that the furnishings/interior of the house do not show any evidence of its “pet-friendliness”. My husband and I spent each morning on the back deck enjoying a cup of coffee- wish I were back there already. A Piggly Wiggly/McDonalds/Burger King are about 10 minutes away at Port St. Joe. A couple of local shrimp places are closer- we bought some shrimp from one, and my husband loved them. During our stay, the owner, Peter, even called us twice during the week to check in and make sure everything was going okay. All in all, I would go back to Two Palms in a second. I’ve rented from VRBO/Homeaway many, many times, and our experience at Two Palms was by far the best experience I’ve ever had. In other rentals, I didn’t even hear from the homeowner, or requests fell down a black hole. With Two Palms, the experience was entirely different. I told my husband one morning as we were having coffee, “I feel like Peter [the homeowner] is our friend!” If you want a terrific house directly beachfront with best-in-class management, stay at Two Palms!

Amazing property and great location!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing family vacation in the Cape. This is such a family friendly area with many activities and places to explore. Lydia and Peter pay great attention to the details of this home. Best stocked kitchen I have ever been in and we rent yearly. I would highly recommend this location and home to anyone. We plan to return and will not look beyond contacting these owners. Top Notch!!!

Fantastic Beach Home!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic vacation at this wonderful home. The open floor plan on the main level was great. There were 10 of us and it was great to be able to eat all together instead of in shifts! The kitchen is well-stocked with just about every utensil or pot/pan you could need. The "adults" were very comfortable in their bedrooms. The "kids" slept comfortably on the pull-out couch on the lower level. The beach was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! Over the course of the week we saw more dolphins than we've seen in all of our beach vacations combined. One day there was a pod of nearly 30 swimming up and down the shorline. Having a private boardwalk to the beach was great--and the beach itself was not crowded at all. It felt like we had it all to ourselves! The local manager Donna was fantastic and was very helpful getting us a replacement propane tank for the grill (ours ran out) super-quick. This is definitely a great spot!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind remarks.
We are just a small (2) rental management company. We can offer value added vacation benefits that offer superior results for an enhanced experience, by focusing on the little things that make a vacation special. Our manager, Donna,spearheads our customer service team locally from the morning you start your journey until checking out. We offer superior service by focusing on the details. Donna helps with everything and is your very own private Concierge who helps with where to get the freshest shrimp and oysters, restaurants, Fishing guides, shelling, bike, kayak, horseback riding on the beach and boat rentals. Want to catch your own scallops in Beautiful St. Joe Bay, to help with anything? Donna will set you up. How about a bonfire on the beach give her a call.
My wife and I interact with you from the moment you inquire about Two Palms and provide all the information you need to have a spectacular experience. My cell phone is always at my side We are available for texting as well. We can’t promise that there won’t be a problem, However we can promise that our team will immediately respond with solutions to the problem. It appears that we did a good job with details for you folks as described in your testimonial. We are client focused and making your trip special is our #1 Goal.We are dedicated to getting better, always.

Our attitude is that most folk’s plan a week’s vacation far in advance, when you finally get there the last thing you need is problems, and in the summer, when it gets very, very busy the local rental management companies just can’t provide the personalized service and attention that we can. It is not even close. We have been hosting folks at Two Palms for 15 years and we have been with almost all the management companies around Cape San Blas and they just don’t have the manpower, resources and specialization we do. They can’t give that attention to detail and service that we demand. We have experienced this first hand when guests would contact us and say they called the management company for 2-3 days and couldn’t get a call back. We just won’t tolerate that kind of service. What happens if the refrigerator or Air Conditioning goes out? That could really have a negative impact on your vacation. Why take a chance being a small fish in a big tank, when you can be the only fish in our tank! Come on down and find out what it is like to have Four Seasons Service at a beach home! We got your back!

One of our BEST Vacations Ever

  • 5 of 5
While we have been wanting to visit Cape San Blas for several years, this year we were finally able to make it work and wow, are we glad we were able to go. If you like to get some R and R on vacation then this is the place for you. As far as the house is concerned, we could not have asked for much better. Lydia was very easy to work with before we arrived and our reservation went off without a hitch. We have rented many vacation properties over the years and I must say that the attention from the owners and property manager that we had on this trip is something that we have never had before. They go way above and beyond to make sure that you are having the best vacation possible. The house is very well equipped for everything we needed. The kitchen is very spacious and well stocked which is nice for us because we don't like to go out that much while on vacation and prefer to just relax and eat in. We were able to prepare several nice meals while we were there. There is also two grills on the property which is a plus as well. There is also ample seating so if you are traveling with several people there is plenty of room to spread out so as not to be sitting on top of each other. This was also a plus for us because my parents joined us for most of the week. Another plus is the vicinity of the house to the beach. it is only about 25 yards from the porch to the beach. We were able to come and go very easily. The best part was that we carried all of our beach gear down and set it up on the first day and didn't have to pack it up again until the last day. No need to worry about it being left on the beach as this is the norm at the Cape. The house was clean and the bedrooms were very spacious. The view from the porch off of the master suite was spectacular. All in all, this was one of our best vacations ever. The attention to detail and the effort from the owners and property manager to make sure we were having a great time was over the top. We even received a call from Peter the owner when we returned home to make sure we had a safe trip back and to see if there was anything we could recommend for improvement. I couldn't think of a thing to change. Thanks again Peter, Lydia and Donna for a great vacation home. We will definitely be staying with you again.

Owner's Response: You folks experienced firsthand, the above and beyond service that we provide our clients when your Air Conditioning went out at 8:00 PM on Wednesday. We immediately responded to your call and went into action to provide a solution. We maintain very close and personal relationships with our vendors and suppliers so that we can often “Pull out a rabbit from our hat”. That was the case with you folks. Donna has lived here for decades and knows ALL the service people in the County and often can “call in a chip”. The Air Conditioning service companies were closed and it was late at night, it looked like we would have to wait until the next day. We sent our personal Handyman out to survey the problem and diagnose a solution. When he couldn’t, Donna put a call into our service guy at his home phone at 9:00 PM and he came out to check the unit that night! We got lucky as he found there was a busted part to the unit and had the part in his truck. The Air Conditioning was up and running by 10:00 PM that hot summer night. It was a great effort on Donna’s part to get this kind of action after hours in the busy summer season. Of course we can’t promise this perfect outcome all the time, but it won’t be because we didn’t try very hard. Relationships, Family, Dedication and attention to detail is what makes us special and stand out from the rest.
The most important thing to know about staying at Two Palms is that we got your back! You can trust us and see for yourself why we get clients coming back for years. Think about it, what if, God Forbid, you had a family member who had an accident or medical emergency and your management company was closed for the night, or very busy, and didn’t respond. That won’t happen at Two Palms. Donna has brought out toilet paper at 10:00 PM, helped folks bring their Pet to a Local Vet after hours, and even driven guests to the emergency room.( she lives less than 1 mile away) The greatest thing about Cape San Blas is its remoteness. It is also one of the drawbacks when you have a problem or emergency. It is nice and very reassuring to know that you will not be alone in a strange place with no local knowledge and limited resources and support. WE GOT YOUR BACK!
I thank you folks for staying with us and am so happy it was one of your BEST VACATIONS EVER! I like to call our Two Palms Family, “Dream Merchants”. Our job is to help make your dreams of a fantastic vacation come true. Come on Down, and let us make your Dreams come true!
Peter
