THIS WEB SITE IS NOT AUTHORIZED TO QUOTE ANY RENTAL RATE OTHER THAN WEEKLY RATES

AT THIS TIME WE ARE ONLY ACCEPTING NO COST TENTATIVE RESERVATIONS. BELOW IS OUR 2016 TENTATIVE RESERVATION POLICY.

Tranquility rents weekly from Sunday to Sunday. The weekly rate includes bed linens, with the beds
made, bath towels and kitchen linens. It would also include the cleaning fee. It does not include the NC Sales Tax (6.75%) and the County Occupancy Tax (6%). There is a $400 Security Deposit which is returned if the property is not damaged. There are no other costs or fees, except heating the swimming pool. To heat the swimming pool we charge our guest the cost of the propane used. We don't anticipate our 2016 rates to vary significantly from our 2015 rates. Our 2015 rates are listed below.
Our 2016 rental rates will not be established until early October 2015. We wait until the large rental companies on Emerald Isle publish their 2016 rates before we establish our rates, in order to insure we are competitive.

Guests renting in 2015 are given priority in renting in 2016, the same week they rented in 2015. We request they inform us within two weeks of departing Tranquility in 2015 of their intent to return on the same week in 2016. Those families who intend to return in 2016 are given no cost Tentative Reservations.

Other families like yourselves, who request dates in 2016, are also given no cost Tentative Reservations and are placed on our list for the week, or weeks, they request. For each 2016 week we list first the families who rented that week in 2015 and informed us they intend to return in 2016. Other families are placed on the list based on the date they first contacted us inquiring about a 2016 rental.

Please let us know if you would like a Tentative Reservation for 2016 and identify the week, or weeks, for which you're requesting a Tentative Reservation. Some families request a Tentative Reservation on two or more weeks since their vacation plans are not yet firm. Also, feel free to contact us at any time to check on your family's status on our Tentative Reservation list.

About 15 October 2015 we will contact the families with Tentative Reservations, inform them of our 2016 rental rates and request they confirm their reservation. A week may have three or four families listed, but we are dealing with the intentions of families a year ahead (plans change) and families may be listed on several weeks, but only rent one week. As a result, we sometimes have weeks with four Tentative Reservations which remain open after we contact the four families.

Those families confirming their reservation are sent a Vacation Rental Agreement. A deposit of 1/3 the rent is requested by 15 November 2015. A second payment of 1/3 the rent is requested by 15 February 2016. The balance of the rent, plus the NC Sales Tax (6.75%) and the County Occupancy Tax (6%), is due 45 days prior to occupancy.

We hope this information is helpful to you as you plan your 2016 vacation at the beach. Please contact us with any questions or concerns you may have about the beach house and/or Emerald Isle.

The North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores is only 20 minutes away and a great place to visit for both children and adults. The town of Beaufort, known for the legend of Blackbeard, has many fine restaurants, the North Carolina Maritime Museum (no entry fee) and many ferry services with tours to Shackleford Banks to see wild horses. There are also boat tours available to visit the Cape Lookout Lighthouse. Another great place to visit is Fort Macon State Park (no entry fee). It is well worth spending a couple of hours in their outstanding visitors center and walking through the old fort. About an hour away is the city of New Bern, North Carolina's capital in the late 1700s. The capital was housed in Tryon Palace, completed in 1770 and built by British Governor William Tryon. Tryon Palace is a place well worth visiting. New Bern, the home of author Nicholas Sparks and the birthplace of Pepsi, is an historic city with fine restaurants and many attractions.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Our family began vacationing on Emerald Isle, North Carolina in the early 1990's, returning year after year to the same lovely and accommodating rental home, the beautiful white sandy beaches and the warm ocean waters. In 2001 an opportunity arose for us to build an oceanfront home and we seized upon it, building TRANQUILITY, our 3,300 sq ft, 6 bedroom beach house which was completed in May 2002. Our family of five children and eleven grandchildren have had a great time every year vacationing at TRANQUILITY, enjoying not only the beach, ocean, pool, hot tub and other amenities the house offers, but the day trips to the Lighthouse at Cape Lookout, the historic towns of Beaufort, New Bern and Swansboro, as well as visits to the recently renovated and expanded NC Aquarium, only 20 minutes away. We enjoyed the CRYSTAL COAST so much that in 2008 we moved to Swansboro, NC, 10 miles from Emerald Isle. As a retired nurse and engineer we have now committed ourselves to ensuring that the families who select TRANQUILITY as their vacation home enjoy the same pleasures and memorable family moments offered by EMERALD ISLE and the CRYSTAL COAST; the pleasures we and our family have enjoyed over the past 18 years. Come and experience all the simple pleasures a vacation at the ocean has to offer, and bring home family memories which will last a lifetime.

Why the Owner Chose Emerald Isle:
After vacationing on Emerald Isle for over 10 years staying; for one or two weeks each Summer; at the same lovely and accommodating rental home, enjoying the beaches, ocean and other attractions in the area, we decided we would purchase our own beach house if the opportunity presented itself. In 2001 the opportunity came. We built TRANQUILITY and have since enjoyed many wonderful vacations with family and friends. The memories we have are priceless.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Some of the activities which have made our vacations at TRANQUILITY so special are the gatherings of family and friends together to enjoy each others company; teaching the grandchildren to swim in the pool, body surf in the ocean and fish in Bogue Sound; flying kites on the beach; day trips to the Lighthouse at Cape Lookout; visits to the NC Aquarium on rainy days; cooking and eating fresh crabs and clams; bike riding to the ice cream shop; and in the cool months, sitting in the hot tub on a clear night, looking at and hearing the pounding surf, and gazing up at the starry starry sky wearing our ski hats and holding a glass of fine wine.
