Family- and Pet-friendly Home Away from Home
Mary and Melissa
About Mary and Melissa
We are sisters who inherited this house from our parents, who passed in 2007 & 2008. We are keeping the house and making it available to share our love of Florida coastal living with other families! We have another vacation rental home on Long Island Sound in Connecticut; for your future travel plans, Two Sisters CT is also listed on this site.
Mary and Melissa purchased this House in 2008
Why Mary and Melissa chose Elizabeth Mcbrides Raulersons
After visiting several times a year from New England, we moved to Florida in the mid-1970s. Our parents chose the area for its climate, central location, natural features and recreational activities. They chose the house for its spacious, comfortable rooms and enormous yard - lots of room for kids and big dogs to run. These are the same reasons we think you'll love it for your family vacation!
What makes this House unique
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! The beach and the Intracoastal Waterway (Halifax River) are readily accessible. One block off the Halifax, Two Sisters South is within easy walking distance of pleasant city parks and piers, where you can watch the occasional launch from Kennedy Space Center, fly a kite in the almost constant subtropical breeze, or stroll the Halifax River Trail (also known as the Halifax River Greenway). The house is situated in a quiet family neighborhood, yet convenient to dining, nightlife, shopping, events and outdoor activities. You're close to attractions, yet only minutes from the real, natural Florida where there are forests, springs, lakes, state parks, and wildlife sanctuaries - where you can fish, birdwatch or catch a glimpse of dolphins, manatees, or even an alligator in the wild. One our favorite nearby bicycle / motorcycle rides is The Loop ( which is also a nice drive on four wheels, and offers several foot trails too. And best of all, you can bring your WHOLE family - even the furry family members! The extra large screened patio offers a relaxing spot to enjoy a tea or coffee and a magazine while your furry family members play in the huge fenced backyard. Or for socialization, take them to nearby Riviera Oaks Dog Park, featuring small and large dog areas, a pond and a 1-mile walking path.

This is the best vacation rental. Everything about it is perfect. Feels like home.
The home is like being at home. It is perfect. It is close to everything, not just Daytona beach but also other beaches and attractions. It is in the middle of a very nice neighborhood. Everything you could ever want or need in a home away from home.
Super clean and well maintained!
This was easily the nicest rental property we’ve ever stayed in, very much like being at home- none of the normal rentalisms that we’ve encountered before. The beds were comfortable and extra linens were plentiful. The owners met us at the property to show us around and gave solid recommendations on local attractions. We will definitely be back
Very clean home. Super nice owners. Great location.
The owners had great communication with us. The house felt like home.
We enjoyed our stay. It was very nice and cozy.
Delighted you enjoyed your stay, and thanks for being great guests. Come visit us again!
Great vacation rental! Pets enjoyed the backyard.
We enjoyed the screened in back porch and watching our dogs play in the fenced yard. They got their exercise and we got to relax! House had plenty of room for 2 couples and 2 children. The proximity to riverfront was wonderful for morning walks and kids enjoyed the play areas. We were able to drive over to Daytona easily. The owners were very nice and provided many extras. It was a great vacation for us.
So glad you enjoyed your stay! That’s exactly the experience we strive to provide - a fun and relaxing time for all the family, including the furry ones! 🙂�
very nice - would definitely consider staying her again
The house was very nice. The only thing I would change (minor) is putting a clock in the master bedroom. Other than that it was exactly what we were looking for.
We are located one block from the Intracoastal Waterway, easy walking distance to the riverside walking trail along the Halifax, and a scenic 5-10 minute drive from either Ormond Beach or Daytona Beach.
