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 Central Coast

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.

This house is perfect for our family beach week!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year staying at George and Sue's beautiful beach house. We have 7 small grandchildren and the layout is perfect for watching them. The pool on the beach side of the house is wonderful. Just about everything you need is provided. From a well equipped kitchen to plenty of towels to lots of beach and pool toys for the children. We look forward to returning again next year.

Spectacular! Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had a magnificent time at Tranquility with lots of family and friends. Easily sleeps 18-20 and the layout is perfect for both shared space and privacy. The location is central to Emerald Isle and we were particularly impressed by all the new restaurants and activities in the area. This was our fourth year reserving Tranquility and will continue to do so as long as the owners will let us! Amazing!

Stay At Tranquility An Exceptional Experience! tedwards657@centurylink.net

  • 5 of 5

When my wife and I decided to include our family in a Celebration of Our 50th Wedding Anniversary, we began looking for something on the Outer Banks of North Carolina that would comfortably sleep 8 adults and 4 grandsons. As it turned our, Tranquility on Emerald Isle was perfect for our family get-together. The 6 bedroom Oceanfront with Jacuzzi and in-ground pool was an instant hit! The owners, George and Suzanne, were most gracious and personally facilitated our getting settled in. Our stay was definitely a Five-Star experience and our family was unanimous in their desire to "do it again" next year! Ted & Bev Edwards

Awesome Vacation Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Tranquility is in a perfect location for a family vacation. It is fully equipped for cooking meals and is supplied with towels, etc. that a family would need. Our family of 9 thoroughly enjoyed the week. Our three grandson as well as a father and grandfather enjoyed playing pool. The oceanfront view is awesome. The pool and hot tub was enjoyed by all. There was two days that was rainy but we enjoyed a trip to the aquarium, Cape Lookout Lighthouse as well as Fort Macon. We are looking forward to working out a week for 2018. We thank George and Suzanne for meeting us the day of arrival. They graciously spent time with us and showed us around the property. Just met them but feels like we have known them for a lifetime. Thank you George and Suzanne for sharing your beach house with us.

Wonderful beach house

  • 5 of 5

Tranquility has everything you need to enjoy your stay. It fit our extended family of 14 nicely. Being right on the beach was great. My 88 year old dad could make it down to the beach and he even tried the hot tub! Being a VRBO owner myself, I can appreciate George and Suzanne's attentiveness to make sure every question is answered and every issue is addressed. I would definitely recommend staying at Tranquility if you get the chance.

Perfect House & Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Tranquility Shores was a perfect fit for our family of eight adults and five children, ages 5 to 11. The large family space on the second floor was ideal for visiting, working puzzles, and reading. The rectangular dining table on that level accommodated all eight adults, while the children ate at the breakfast table. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots and pans, spices, and a double set of dishes and cutlery.

We absolutely loved the large, shaded deck, on the second floor, where the sea breeze blew cool ocean air all the time. The children split their time between the ocean and the pool. The ocean waves were vigorous enough for bogey boards, climaxing in gentle waves running up the beach. The beach was clean, uncrowded, and close to the house. The owner provided two foot-wash stations on the board walk and an outdoor shower to minimize the amount of sand brought into the house.

The biggest surprise was that the basement was quite a bit larger than I expected, with a full bath, and two futon-couches around a TV area. There was also a full-sized pool table, foosball table, a second refrigerator, and a desk. We were glad for the extra room as our tween migrated to one of the futons mid-week.

We highly recommend Tranquility Shores, and hope to return in future years.

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.
