This is an awesome house. The home is beautiful. The gulf front view is spectacular. The heated pool and the hot tub were wonderful. My family loved this house. Sophi was easy to contact and very pleasant to talk to. We would love to stay again
I highly recommend the Tranquil Turtle. I have stayed at many rentals, that were all good, but this place is like home. Plenty of space for everyone with large open concept living area and 5 bedrooms, all with private bathrooms. The entire home was well stocked and equipped with everything we needed for the week with 13 guests. My favorite spot was the bed swing on second floor deck. We would definitely like to stay here again.
This house was beautiful and well equipped inside and out. We had an amazing time. Even with rainy days, there was plenty to do at the house like playing foosball and shuffleboard. Sophie and Molly kept in touch and went out of their way to accommodate our stay. Our family has already talked about staying here again. Thank you for helping us make beautiful memories.
The place was perfect!! Sophi was very responsive to a few questions we had. What kid definitely stay there again!!
I've stayed on the cape for many years and of all the places I've stayed this one was absolutely wonderful. Beautiful house, great location, great response from the owner. I would definitely stay again
First time our family had really spent any time together since you know what, and eveything was perfect for a family of 8 adults and 3 small grand children.. The accommodations were comfortable and every floor has a great view of the ocean. The best part for us was that they provided beach chairs, a cooler, boogie boards and simple beach toys. The beaches were awesome, as well as pool and hot tub This was our kids’ first time to the ocean and we are already planning our next trip back next year! Highly recommend this place!
I hesitate to write this ?????????? review only because I want this property to be available the next time we want to rent it! ???? We have rented many beach houses in various areas along 30A, and the Florida coast. This was hands-down, far-and-away, the BEST beach rental we have ever stayed in… Where to even begin? The location: steps to the sand, and your own private walkway. Amazingly isolated beach, with NO crowds (and during Spring Break week!). We found a ridiculous amount of shells, more than we have ever found out of any beach we have been to. Whole mini conch shells, scallop shells, and lettered olive shells. BAGS of them! The kids (and adults) had a blast hunting. On the Cape you can also do your own bonfire on the beach, which we loved. We enjoyed shopping at the Trading Post and little ice cream place next door to it. Hopefully next time we will get around to trying the donuts too. House amenities—we were blown away by all the details, large and small. Two full-sized refrigerator/freezers, which was very helpful for our 6 adults and 3 kids. Every kitchen tool you could possibly need, including glass Tupperware, and even an air fryer. Plenty of counter space, a huge pantry, and a separate bar area and it’s own ice maker which was wonderful for beach cocktails. ???? Other details that other rentals often lack—luggage racks for suitcases in each bedroom, laundry baskets, hooks everywhere for towels, and even outlet phone shelves. Beds were so incredibly comfortable—we all slept so well. Tons of extra pillows, and even blackout curtains in the bedrooms. Several plush and cozy throw blankets for the couch, smart TV, and a blu-ray player—this home truly has EVERTHING! Pool was heated, which was absolutely wonderful given the colder temps of the ocean in March. Our kids swam for hours each day. Pool toys were provided, as well as beach toys, beach chairs and towels. Two bikes were available as well. Screened in lower porch allowed us to be “outside” even on our one rainy day. Also good to note—the property is on EST, for purposes of check-in and check-out time. Communication with the owner, Sophi was wonderful. Save yourself searching and book this property now—you won’t be disappointed!
House is nice, and location great. Pool, hot tub, beach and sun make it an excellent vacation spot. Groceries, fresh seafood and adult beverages located nearby. Be patient. Hurricane Michael & Covid hit area hard, so some restaurants and stores are short staffed. Wish we had another week. Few things needs a little maintenance, especially the grille. Will go back again.
Best stocked beach house we have ever stayed in.
We plan a FL beach trip every year in September and we have stayed in different locations, but this was by far the best. This property has the most amazing beach and coastal view in the panhandle. We enjoyed the beautiful sunset every night. The house was perfect for our group of nine and we had a room to spare. The house offers lots to keep people entertained; there are games and puzzles, and each room had HUGE TVs (if you want to watch TV instead of look at the beach). There is foosball, shuffle puck, and a pool table. Having an outdoor pool table was great for those times the kids wanted to be in the pool, but the adults did not want to get wet or sit idly by to supervise. The pool table gave the adults something to do pool side while the kids played in the pool. All the entertainment extras are fun, but when I rent a house I want it to have all the appliances and utensils I need for cooking. This house did not disappoint me, it was exceptional. This house was so well provisioned that in addition to an extra refrigerator (must have in a vacation house with 9 ppl) the kitchen had muffin pans (with silicon muffin cups), an array of sheet pans (work nicely as family style serving platters), beverage pitcher (to take a batch of rum punch to the beach), storage containers (also a must have), whisks, spatulas, serving spoons, and a stand mixer, it also had, wait for it.....a stand alone commercial ICE MAKER. If you have ever rented a house at the beach, in the summer, you know you ALWAYS run out of ice and have to go to the store. Not the case here. The ice maker was the best extra in the house. Also, the quality of the pots and pans, and utensils was really good. I usually bring my own cookware and knives to rentals because I often find what is offered is usually poor quality, and in poor condition or altogether unusable. It was wonderful to have quality and abundant supply all in one kitchen. We loved everything about this house and our vacation experience. Especially the customer service. We needed some support during our stay and our host and their local support person took care of everything! We cannot thank them enough for all their help!!
