We have vacationed all over the world, but now that the kids are of school age we tend to stay closer to home to minimize their absences from school. Tranquility did not disappoint. The house is immaculate. There is an elevator to make it convenient not only for the family, but also for lugging suitcases up and down from the third floor. The house was professionally decorated to match the decor expected from over a million dollar beach house. The second and third floor balconies have electric screen enclosures that can be opened and closed with the touch of a remote button. The kitchen is a gourmet style with every amenity imaginable. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated with everything you would need for an extended stay. In the golf cart garage there are beach toys for the kids and umbrellas to stay out of the sun. At the end of the boardwalk to the beach there are resort quality loungers for use on the beach. The beach and water are pristine, some of the clearest water I've ever seen in the Gulf. And I grew up in Florida on the gulf coast. Outdoor shower, jacuzzi, and covered patio round out the whole experience. They have a concierge that will go to the store for you with your list of items and stock the house with whatever you'd like during your stay. There is a gold cart for use while you're there as well as a minivan with ferry pass to ease the cost of going back and forth to the mainland. I've read complaints about all the warnings posted at the house as far as don't do this and don't so that. I found the posts helpful and friendly reminders of the expectations of how to care for a house of this magnitude. Some people are just not respectful of other peoples things. If this was my house and would do the same thing. It's not some dated rental with furnishings that can be abused. It's an upscale residence that sits right on the beach. If you have kids that are disrespectful or not used to being around expensive furnishings then this house is not for you. We loved the house, the island, and the privacy. we will definitely go there again.
