Tranquil Seas provides plenty of tranquility

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple who are long-time friends shared Tranquil Seas for the month of February 2017. We had a fabulous time and the house was definitely part of our great experience. The location is wonderful--just barely a block from the beach. We could hear the surf most days and all of us found that a wonderful soundtrack for a lazy month in Florida. The house is VERY well appointed. We cooked many meals and found all the kitchen tools we could possibly need. The layout of the house is great for couples or families--sleeping on all three floors. We highly recommend Tranquil Seas for a wonderful vacation homebase.

Tranquil Seas was absolutely amazing! I have rented vacation rentals for many many years, i live in one. This home was stunning, had absolutely everything you could need and more. Upscale and beautiful furnishings, lush linens, and i cannot even begin to describe the view from everywhere. We brought our two furkids and they loved it. Such a quiet and friendly community, the local stores were great as well. This house can only be described as "As close to heaven as it gets" The owners are so great and easy to work with. I simply cannot wait to return. We had two campfires on the beach which was so unique as this is the only beach ive seen that allows this. Its very spacious. We had 4 adults and 6 children who made great use of the lovely pool. The pool guy came by daily sometimes twice, to make sure it was warm enough for the kids. As an avid sea turtle conservationist, one of my biggest surprises was the owners love for the turtles and the educational materials left for guests on how to help save the turtles!! We will be back over and over!

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wondeful stay on the Cape. If you are looking for a quite place to enjoy the gulf this is definitely your place.

We had the maximum people for this property. All were comfortable and had plenty of space. Also, we never ran out of hot water the entire week.

Tranquil Seas

  • 5 of 5

This was the fourth home this winter that I rented on the Cape. Glad I saved the best until last. Teresa and her husband, Chris, were sensational folks to work with. Teresa showed me the house, and met my dog, Robbie. Chris came to the house immediately when I called about the smoke alarm beeping and needing to be replaced. These folks are VERY receptive and attentive to their clients!

The house is a lovely property: neat, clean, well-manintained, nicely decorated, and perfectly situated to see the glorious sunsets every evening. While my dog and I were the only guests at Tranquil Seas, it still felt homey and comfortable - never scary or unsafe.

We walked on the beach and around the subdivision, and sat out on the balcony or by the pool. The house has all the amenities: great cookware, plenty of towels and blankets, higher-end appliances, and a lovely landscaped yard, which we truly appreciated, especially after encountering so many prickly plants with burrs in other Florida yards!

You will not be disappointed nor mislead by the pictures and description of this home. I've stayed a number of VRBO vacation homes around the country, and this was one of the nicest ones yet.

You WILL enjoy your vacation at Tranquil Seas!

Owner's Response: Kate, Thank you so much for this perfect review. We try our best to be as responsive as we can when guests have any issues. Thankfully a smoke detector was something we can very easily fix ourselves. We're glad you had a wonderful stay this winter and hope that we are able to have you and Robbie back in the future.. And hopefully we can find somewhere that you can "Stay put" in seasons to come. Thank you again!

Loved the views from the decks and the private pool for fantastic!!! Our ONE AND ONLY complaint was the awful biting flies!! But they didn't even ruin our fabulous week at the Cape!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!! We will be back !!!
