December 2018 Stay
My family and I celebrated my aunt's 50th wedding anniversary at a Estate of Tranquility & the house made the celebration even more special. We really enjoyed the house and the spacious accommodations. You would think 14 grownups and a two-year-old would feel on top of one another in one house, but we never did because each room in the house was more than accommodating.
We appreciated the use of the golf cart, the well-?equipped gym, and very nice movie theater room. Taking a walk through the neighborhood allowed us to meet some of the very pleasant neighbors and it was nice that everyone was so friendly as well as the homes were beautiful to see.
The staff was great to work with and the gift left acknowledging the special occasion was unexpected and greatly appreciated. Our only recommend ation would be to add pot holders to the well-furnished kitchen. We did a lot of cooking and these would have been helpful. We do look forward to returning & enjoying the beautiful pool & beach the next time.
Thank you for taking the time to review Estate of Tranquility. We are thrilled to be able to provide the backdrop for such a monumental life event. It is wonderful to read that you had a wonderful stay with us. We agree the house and neighborhood are absolutely perfect for a family getaway. We appreciate you informing us about the potholders. We have had our Housekeeping department deliver some. We hope to have you back with us very soon!

July 2018 Stay
we truly enjoyed our stay. the pool was warm n fun. we loved the Destiny East neighborhood. so pretty an the 6 passenger golf cart was so much appreciated to take us to the beach. we travelled from Il. n brought a tent but some beach chairs would have been so welcome
with 5 people in the csr it was not possible to bring those too. zthe kitchen was well equipped for our needs but could have used more measuring cups. the bunk beds had sand in them so that was disappointing an not good sleeping for the kids. the house was great with the king beds n spacious rooms. The living room was very nice an comfortable. the workout room was a plus. we would stay there again but do not come every year. I am in love with Destin. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home
At the bottom of the stairs is very pointed an we feared someone would hurt themselves if they took the corner to close.
We were happy to see that you had such a wonderful time at Estate of Tranquility and were able to enjoy this beautiful home and all of its amenities. Thank you for letting us know about the sand in the bunk beds. We have reported this to our Housekeeping Manager. We would have been happy to arrange for you to rent beach chairs if we had known you needed them. Destin is a wonderful place to vacation and Estate of Tranquility is a wonderful vacation home. We look forward to hosting you again soon!
Great Place with Plenty of Space
We rented this place for a family reunion and it was awesome. The kitchen was spacious with enough room for everyone to cook and socialize. We did bring our own sharp knife for chopping, etc...and that was a good call. We spent a ton of time at the pool in the back which was fun and relaxing. We didn't use the golf cart, but I can see where it comes in very handy with heading to the beach with a bunch of items. All of the bedrooms had Super comfy beds with a ton of space and each had its own bathroom. TV's in every bedroom as well. We had a group of 5 couples and 3 kids and we never felt cramped at all. We will definitely return for another trip next year to this house.
Overall, it was just okay.
I'll start by listing the pro's about the property and our stay. The house is new and in great condition, even smells new. The beds are comfortable. The pool and spa are very nice and spacious. Destiny East is an upscale and nice gated community. The reason we chose this property was because there was not a minimum stay required. We were able to stay 6 nights rather than 7 like other properties required. Now for a few things that could've been better - When we arrived our paperwork wasn't clear about the check-in process. It listed a procedure for late check-in, but nothing for standard business hours. I had to call and ask. As it turns out, we had to go to the Newman Dailey office first to receive our door code. That was a bit inconvenient. We stayed at another property in Destiny East last year and we were just emailed the door code. We paid the $50 per day to heat the pool and spa. When we arrived they were both ice cold. I called again and asked why it wasn't warm. Someone named Ryan returned my call and gave me a story about a squirrel chewing through the wires (doubtful) and that they had just turned on the heat. He then proceeded to tell me that the spa is not a hot tub and will not actually get warm, that it just takes the edge off a little. He said it wouldn't get anywhere close to bath water temp. That was disappointing to hear. When I noticed the heater temp could be increased with the simple push of a button, I learned that fortunately, Ryan was very wrong. In fact, both the spa and pool got too hot for comfort and I had to turn it back down. The floor in the house was filthy. Our socks were all black by the end of the first day. We found multiple hairs in our beds, and a few dead bugs (Cockroaches?) on the floor. The furniture was terribly uncomfortable. (Except for the beds) There is an extremely loud alarm on the door to the pool area. Every time you open the door you must push a button on the alarm to silence. If the door isn't closed in 8 seconds it will go off. I get that this is a safety feature for young children but there should be an option to disable it. The pictures of the house are a little misleading. It backs right up to the busy road and sidewalk. The trees don't provide enough privacy. It's very loud with the traffic. A previous reviewer said the walk to the beach is 1 minute. I timed the walk and it's 12 minutes. Overall our stay was okay, but there are things that should be addressed.
Thank you for your recent review of Estate of Tranquility. We are pleased to read the beds were comfortable and overall you enjoyed the house. It is a beautiful new construction. We apologize for the inconvenience with the check-in process. We enjoy welcoming guests so we may personally meet you, review policies and answer questions. Since the heater had not been used this season, the pool vendor discovered the wires had been chewed, which is why the pool was not originally heating. We’re glad we were able to send someone out and have the heater fixed the same day. As for the pool alarm, unfortunately, it cannot be silenced due to Florida laws, which state it is illegal to tamper with or disable the pool alarm. We’re disappointed to hear of cleaning concerns. If we had known about them during your stay, we would have sent someone out immediately. Your review has been forwarded to our Housekeeping Department. We appreciate your review and feedback so that we may make improvements to our processes. Thank you for staying with us. We hope to see you back soon.
This house was absolutely fantastic! The heated pool with spillover hot tub was pure paradise. The house is brand new and very spacious, and did I mention it is just a 1 minute walk to the beach! I will definitely be back.
