About George and Suzanne Desrochers
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.
George and Suzanne Desrochers purchased this House in 2002
Why George and Suzanne Desrochers 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.

Beautiful stay in Emerald Isle
Beautiful property with a wonderful view
Pool and hot tub ocean front and the glass rails on the porches made the view seamless
Hope to stay there again
Where you want to be for your summer vacation!
This place is where it’s at if you want the best vacation for your family! We had such a great vacation staying here. The views are spectacular and the home owners are so easy to communicate with! Highly recommend!
We had the best week!
Another Fabulous Week
This is our fifth year at Tranquility & we would not stay anywhere else!! This is our annual vacation with family & friends. The elevator is amazing, given we have family with mobility issues. And plenty of room for two big families! George & Suzanne are wonderfully kind & keep Tranquility in amazing shape. Can’t say enough good things about our week! Will definitely return for our sixth year!
Been renting beach homes for 20 years and this is the best by far.
Our family always departs so very happy with our stay at Tranquility.
Was perfect for the whole family, all 18 of us
Great beach house and beach. Clean And well kept. Owners were very helpful and pleasent.
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.
