About this listing
Twin Pines has the comforts sought by today's travelers and families. The 2/2 ranch home features a screened-in lanai, open layout, and yard. It's a 15 min stroll to the beach and 10 min to Atlantic Ave or Pineapple Grove.
Twin Pines is ideally located for accessing the beach and the Ave, comfortably furnished, and thoughtfully prepared for your enjoyment. The open floor plan flows easily for hanging-out time or casual entertainment while allowing the bedrooms ample privacy. The comfortable living and dining rooms overlook the new kitchen that spills into the irresistible screened-in (or air-conditioned) lanai. Go ahead, grab a seat, and take in blissfully relaxing landscaped views while sipping your drink of choice!
Alternatively, sit out on the patio and dine al fresco on the sturdy picnic table while enjoying the quiet and natural setting. The backyard is fenced-in and welcome for kids and pets alike to run around and enjoy themselves in the natural grass or wade in the kiddie blow-up pool, or even laugh with the Slip and Slide.
The entire furnished, vacation-ready home and its amenities are open to your private use during your stay.

This is our state-side home, which is professionally managed, cleaned, and maintained during our family's overseas absences. We're highly responsive by email, but we know that sometimes that's not enough. Our local property manager is on-call for emergencies or immediate household support.

I'm a family man that works in international trade and public service. I have lived across the U.S. but I have strong international roots. I have a wife and two young kids (they're 6 and 3). We are typically city people, but we like to get away when we travel. We're homeowners in Delray Beach, FL and Washington, DC and both homes are managed short-term rental homes, so we understand how to treat someone else's home with respect and what travelers expect in a comfortable home. I am a self-admitted espresso snob, I enjoy backpacking, and I managed a rooftop garden while living in Chicago.
