Greetings from Palm Island, Florida. Palm Island is one of the last bastions of the old Florida lifestyle. Quiet and laid-back, Palm Island is really three islands (Don Pedro, Knights and Palm) with a contiguous seven mile white sand beach on the west and harbors and inlets on the east.
Palm Island is separated from the mainland by Lemon Bay, but is served every 10 minutes by car ferry as well as water taxi and private craft. Traffic is minimal, requiring no lights or stop signs and one paved road. Although vehicles are used, most island transport is via golf cars.
Tranquility House is a four bedroom beach home completed in 2008. With approx. 3,500+ s.f. of living space under air and 7,000 s.f. total space, this property is ideal for gatherings of families, friends, weddings and special occasions.
Tranquility House sleeps 12-16 people. It has been designed for strength, beauty, energy efficiency, comfort and low maintenance.

About Dave Andrews
Our family has owned and managed multi-family, single-family and vacation properties in three states since 1980.
Dave Andrews purchased this House in 2009
Why Dave Andrews chose Placida
We built this property in 2008 to be an upscale beachfront fractional ownership property. Fractional Ownership did not develop, but the property became popular for weddings and vacation rentals. The property is now rented about 40 weeks annually. We return the property to arrival condition after each rental.
What makes this House unique
We are owners and managers, not agents or employees. We have many years of experience professionally owning and managing over 300 units. This property receives our dedicated attention. Tranquility House is unique on Palm Island in many ways: * Directly on 7 mile sand beach * Sleeps 16 comfortably * Exclusive Pool Club membership * Beach side spa * Sunsets over water * 8 passenger Honda provided * Lush tropical landscape setting * Elevator * Private dune boardwalk

Keep it a secret!
Shhh!!! Don't tell anyone about Tranquility House. Literally this is a diamond in the rough. We have now stayed there four times. It is stunning. You won't be disappointed. The owners are very responsive and quite fair. The views are spectacular. The result: wonderful memories.
Property is great
Amazing property but the owner is a completely different story. The rules and checklists we insane. We got charged for things that never happened and felt like the owner was trying to treat us like we were 10 years old. 100% would NOT recommend this property unless you plan on not touching anything in the house and doing absolutely nothing will your there. Completely overbearing owner.
This party of 16 men did over $1,000 damage to this property. They lied on their application and blatantly violated no smoking rules. They left burns and broke a $700 heavy wood bar stool into 3 pieces. They moved landscape barriers and drove vehicles across expensive and sensitive landscape. They marred a newly refinished dining table and exteriors railings. It is unfortunate that we have a few guests like this who damage the property and inconvenience future guests. We try to screen them out, but were unsuccessful this time. After deducting cleaning and damages, they have an unpaid balance. Naturally, they are not invited to return.
A Very Special Place
Just back from our 3rd year staying at the Tranquility House. The house has everything your could need or want. The kitchen is well stocked with any kitchen item you could need and all in good condition. The elevator is a godsend....for the older family members and for bringing up all the groceries and luggage! The golf cart that comes with the house is a must have on the island as well. The first floor balcony is wonderful and even the non-beach goers can enjoy the beauty of Palm Island without even walking the beach. Shelling is great and if you are not careful you will become obsessed with looking for sharks teeth. The beach is also great for small children and the sunsets are awesome. We had thirteen people in the house ages from 2 to 86 and there was something for everyone. I am sure we will be back next year! Palm Island is certainly a special place!
A group of us have been coming to Palm Island on the same weekend each year, and we are always taking into consideration the maintenance of the home and the proximity to the beach. As a result, we tend to try a different house every couple of years are so. We think we have found a keeper with this one! There are a lot of rules and restrictions, which had us intimidated at first, but in the end, we got the hang of what was expected of us and truly enjoyed the property. I would not recommend this house if you have kids, as the restrictions were pretty extensive and there would almost certainly be unintended violations, but it is great for a group of adults. We look forward to returning!
We appreciate this fine review. However, it should be noted that over 90% of our guests are families with children. Please read the many other reviews for what these families have to say.
Amazing vacation spot
We got very lucky and came across this listing while looking for a spot to have our small wedding on the beach. It was PERFECT!! The house is just wonderful. Once we decided that this was what we were looking for, communication with Mr. Andrews back and forth was very easy. He made sure we knew the rules and regulations and made things clear and understandable. The house was extremely spacious, comfortable and in great condition. The outside was just as great! The view from the balconies were breath taking. Just a short walk out back and your toes were in the sand. Our wedding ceremony went just as planned and turned out absolutely beautiful. We and all our guests were extremely pleased! Highly recommend this vacation home and would return back in a heart beat!
This was our second visit to Tranquility House and it proved again to be a perfect vacation property. Our group of thirteen - three generations, including five children, aged from 8 to 11 years, found fun and relaxation on Palm Island and appreciated every amenity in this well equipped, comfortable house. Steps from a splendid beach, short golf cart drive to the local resort for a family style restaurant, ice-cream shop and basic food items (including a reasonably priced bottle of wine) plus spectacular sunsets - this house hits all the "must haves". There are three great double bedrooms upstairs with a very comfortable pull-out couch in the downstairs library and a upstairs kids bunk room which is A+. All the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, except the library but even that is only a few steps from a shower room. The kitchen/great room is perfect for vacation living with easy access to a shady deck overlooking the beach. The property also has a great laundry room - an essential when you have kids in your party. We met many local residents on the island and were invited to attend one of their beach concerts which we all enjoyed. Once "off island" there is access to a good supermarket, local restaurants, boat rentals, paddle boards, etc. However plan carefully so as not to waste the ferry tickets - buying extra tickets is expensive! All our family thoroughly recommend Tranquility House and we have already reserved our week for our third visit next year.
Nearby Oyster Creek Regional Park includes skateboard park, swim facility and many other amenities.
