Tranquility was truly the welcome mat to beautiful Emerald Isle, North Carolina! Well-appointed and comfortable, this very accommodating and spacious beach house afforded us a most relaxing vacation. Most impressive is the complimentary decor and well-stocked house. The many efforts of the owners to offer a top-rate vacation get-away were first class. On behalf of my group, I sent our gratitude. We WILL return.
George and Suzanne's home is just that! A home! You feel so comfortable from the moment you step in. They've really done all the right things like stocking the kitchen generously, decorating the living room and bedrooms lavishly, and providing lots of play areas for kids and adults! This home is also very friendly for those who have physical limitations with steps. The location is wonderful and our family has already made plans to return! Thank you so much George and Suzanne!
We have been coming to Tranquility at least once each year since we first "discovered" it in 2004. Sometimes we bring family and sometimes we bring friends. Sometimes we have a full house, and sometimes we just have three couples. Each visit is memorable. Our biggest problem as "hosts" is that we can't honor every request that typically starts off with "We had a great time and would like to come back with you next year!" The owners of Tranquility are also the managers. They are wonderful and caring people who live in a neighboring town. They are geographically close if any problems arise. They have developed a list of competent local service providers in case the renters/guests have a need that the owners can't handle. This year one of our guest couples told me that "The amenities are too numerous to mention them all, but the beds are comfortable with top-of-the-line bedding, the house is extremely clean throughout, it has a well-stocked kitchen, and the pool, hot-tub and outdoor shower are wonderful." The furnishings are stylish, the beach is sandy (no rocks), and the views of the beach and ocean from inside the house are spectacular! The covered deck that is off the main floor is a gathering spot for our friends and family for coffee, breakfast, conversation, reading, dolphin-watching, snoozing, pre-dinner drinks, and watching the Moon.
George and Suzanne are wonderful hosts while you spend time at there beachfront home. Everything is well maintained and immaculate. Pool and hot tub are a wonderful reprieve. Fishing is great too.
Our family has stayed at this beautiful beach home over Thanksgiving the past five years. It is a beautiful, well-maintained home. We continue to be impressed with the improvements and general maintenance that is done each year. It is always clean and well stocked with dishes, bar ware, glasses, pots and pans, and small appliances. We also appreciate all the little things provided making it unnecessary to go to the store immediately to purchase toilet paper, tissues, dish soap, etc. The welcome tin of chocolate covered pretzels have become a very much appreciated expectation of the family. The only thing that could make it better would be a three burner gas grill to cook our Thanksgiving turkey!
Imagine the perfect getaway that feels like home with a spectacular view of the ocean....that is what my family experienced for Christmas 2017! The home was beautifully decorated, and every amenity that you could imagine was provided (especially in the kitchen)! The layout of the home allowed us to share great meals together, play games to the wee hours of the morning, enjoy the majesty of the ocean, and occasionally get some sleep!
We were very fortunate to be able to stay for the second year in a row! This house is fantastic! The accommodations are beautiful and well planned and cared for. The attention to detail is superb! It has been a rare find to have such accessibility for our daughter with some disabilities! It is always a sad time when we have to leave! The owners are the best to work with and make you feel like family! We hope to be back next year! Thank you, George and Suzanne!
We loved our stay at this amazing beachfront home, and really appreciated the hospitality shown by George and Suzanne. The views couldn't be better, and the home is so well equipped in every way. The location is ideal for both beach walking, and for exploring nearby areas. Easy access to both groceries and restaurants. The only downside was having to leave at the end of the week!
From the minute we walked in the door, we loved everything about this home! The views of the ocean from the wall of windows spanning the living area and kitchen, views from the balcony on that level, and from the 3rd floor balcony are breathtakingly beautiful! We loved that the upstairs had 3 bedrooms with doors opening to the 3rd floor balcony with rocking chairs. All of the bedrooms are wonderful; the living room area is so cheerily decorated with comfortable furniture; the kitchen is very well stocked with anything you could possibly need; the game room with big screen tv and computer station is wonderful; and really, every single thing about this home is amazing! George and Suzanne have thought of everything, from a delicious welcome gift enjoyed by all, to having supplies and necessities to get us started for the week without having to go shop upon arrival, to having extra towels for each guest. They have so well maintained their home that everything looks brand new! The pool and hot tub are sparkling and very nice, right there to enjoy while seeing the beach and ocean! We held a family wedding on the beach at the end of our week there, and it was the absolutely most perfect setting with the beautiful home and beautiful beach and ocean! George and Suzanne are wonderful, welcoming owners who made it clear that they were available if we needed anything. The only problem with this home was that nobody wanted to leave - ever! It is the ideal place for a large family gathering - a happy, happy place, and all of our family and friends who were with us give it the highest recommendation possible! Stay here if you have a chance! It is paradise!
Great beach house and beach. Clean And well kept. Owners were very helpful and pleasent.
Our family always departs so very happy with our stay at Tranquility.
This is our fifth year at Tranquility & we would not stay anywhere else!! This is our annual vacation with family & friends. The elevator is amazing, given we have family with mobility issues. And plenty of room for two big families! George & Suzanne are wonderfully kind & keep Tranquility in amazing shape. Can’t say enough good things about our week! Will definitely return for our sixth year!
