About George and Suzanne Desrochers 910-326-5399 or 703-304-2287. Call us and save.

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 George and Suzanne Desrochers 910-326-5399 or 703-304-2287. Call us and save. 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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Tranquility at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

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!

Wonderful, clean, beautiful beach home!

  • 5 of 5

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!

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.

"Tranquility" is a Wonderful and Accurate Name for this Property.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Amazing beach house!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Car: necessary

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.
