About John and Leslie Mackowiak

Leslie and John Mackowiak met in Chicago on the first day of Pharmacy School at the University of Illinois. The day after they married, they loaded the truck and came to UNC Chapel Hill for John to start grad school. They still fondly remember their first trip to the NC beaches in 1981. Their 3 children shared their love for the beach, which led them to buy 2B2Gether in 2002. Since then, their children graduated from University of TN, UNC, and Clemson, and they still keep coming back to be together at 2B2Gether at the beach.

They now live in Cedar Point, 4 miles from 2B2Gether. Their proximity helped them decide to start renting though VRBO and sharing their love for the beach and the area attractions directly with their guests at 2B2Gether. They have stayed in their home many times with groups of friends, and with family. They know first hand how well it works in bringing the whole gang together, not just for a week, but for years to come.

In the off season, the home has been used by small families who want the room to stretch out, knitting groups, business meetings, etc.

John and Leslie Mackowiak purchased this house in 2002

Great House

  • 4 of 5

Was in family group that stayed at this amazing house. It was spacious and the kids really enjoyed the pool! Problem with the theater room not playing DVDs but owners immediately took care of the problem. Elevator was definitely a plus. We were the chosen ones to stay in the first floor bedroom next to the pool table! At first afraid bed would not be comfortable but it actually was. Bath on this floor small but adequate for a couple. Loved the ocean views and would love to return again. Thanks to the owners for sharing this amazing home.

We just returned from a family vacation staying at 2B2together. It is a beautiful and well kept property, very clean. Beautiful ocean views and nice pool for the kids to spend afternoons in! Kitchen is a little on the small side if you do much cooking in which we did. Spacious bedrooms and baths. Elevator came in handy to haul everything up to main level(doesn't go to 3rd floor). It over all is a very nice vacation home and we would stay again.
