INSTANT QUOTE IS NOT ALWAYS ACCURATE FOR THIS PROPERTY! EMAIL FOR DETAILED QUOTE, SPECIALS and DISCOUNTS.

Greetings from Palm Island, Florida. Palm Island is one of the last bastions of the old Florida lifestyle. Quiet and laid-back, Palm Island is really three islands (Don Pedro, Knights and Palm) with a contiguous seven mile white sand beach on the west and harbors and inlets on the east.

Palm Island is separated from the mainland by Lemon Bay, but is served every 10 minutes by car ferry as well as water taxi and private craft. Traffic is minimal, requiring no lights or stop signs and one paved road. Although vehicles are used, most island transport is via golf cars.

Tranquility House is a four bedroom beach home completed in 2008. With approx. 3,500+ s.f. of living space under air and 7,000 s.f. total space, this property is ideal for gatherings of families, friends, weddings and special occasions.

Tranquility House sleeps 12-16 people. It has been designed for strength, beauty, energy efficiency, comfort and low maintenance.

Tranquility House is AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting Don Pedro Island since 2003, and have stayed at various beach front homes on the island. This past Christmas/New Years we stayed at Tranquility house. We had been wanting to stay here since it was built and are so happy we finally were able to use the home - it is truly an awesome home and location! We ended up having a small family reunion on the island where part of the group stayed at Tranquility House and the remainder were elsewhere on the island. We all had a fantastic time! The location and all the amenities provided in the house offer nearly stress free comfort and relaxation. Having the extra gulf cart was perfect - we own one which we let our boys use (who are 17 and 21), and then having one provided by the house meant we did not need to go through the hassle of renting one. And then having access to the Honda Mini Van - it was great to not need to tear off a coupon every time we made the ferry crossing. Having the car is a really great perq which is difficult to value, but definitely saved us money compared to previous vacations at other properties. Inside, the home is painted vibrant Caribbean colors, with beautiful murals on the walls (a centrally placed elevator helped get the groceries and our luggage off the ground). The home offers luxurious comfort in all the public areas, bedrooms, and especially the master bedroom. There is a first floor TV room with pull out sofa bed, but we did not use it for sleeping, preferring to use it instead as the quiet space for reading. The teens really appreciated the size of the large flat screen TV's for XBox enjoyment, and my wife and I loved the large screen in the family room and bedroom for evening news or watching a movie. And it gets cool enough at night that the Hot Tub was a favorite spot in the evenings. The Kitchen is well stocked with all we needed for meal prep and is centrally located on the main floor so that the cooks were actively involved with everything going on in the living areas. The many beach chairs and easy access to one of Florida's most pristine and beautiful beaches, truly just steps away from the home, allowed for daily beach use - we spent hours every day on the beach reading books, playing ball sports, riding Jet Ski's out on the Gulf, and even anchoring our boats just off shore, where everyone could swim to just for fun. We had such a great stay that we plan to stay at Tranquility going forward! (We did not have any of the issues noted in other reviews)

Family Friendly Home on Beautiful Palm Island

  • 5 of 5

We did extensive research to find the perfect home that would comfortably accommodate our family of 6 and another family. I admit, we almost did not book this house due to some of the negative reviews. I am so relieved we did not listen to those reviewers. We would have missed out on the perfect vacation in this gorgeous home.

Family friendly: Our party included four adults, two one-year-olds, one four-year-old and two teenagers. I was worried that it might not be the right home with the younger children. There is a simple solution. We took photos of everything before we got settled and then everything that a small child could potentially break out of reach. Upon check-out, we simply reset everything. We installed two baby gates and made sure to put a buffer between the gate and the wall as to not leave a scratch. Voila! Super baby proofed home. There were highchairs and Pack n Plays provided as well as tons of beach toys. Perfect home for families.

The house: We constantly commented on how everything was perfectly thought out from the decor, the functionality and layout. I feel like I need to redecorate my own home to mimic Tranquility House. It was so fresh, so clean, so....happy. I will have daydreams of one day owning a kitchen as stunning as this one for a long time. It was so functional, yet so beautiful and spacious. We loved the heated outdoor shower. The owner has two big rules: no sand and no dripping in the house. Makes sense to me. I wouldn't want sand all in my home. Because the beach is RIGHT THERE, it simple to go down and enjoy the beach for a little while, go wash off in the outdoor shower, dry off and come back in. The elevator was also very helpful for loading and unloading as it stops right at the kitchen and outside the bedrooms.

The beach/ view: We loved sitting on the porch with coffee, watching the ocean. Some days my only care was whether I wanted to read my book on the porch or down on the beach. We had awesome dolphin viewing every single day, up to a dozen dolphins just happily playing. My husband and teenagers got an friendly visit from a manatee while swimming near the sand bar. The beach has tons of awesome shells and shark teeth (just don't bring stinky shells into the house).

This house is perfection. We look forward to coming back again and again. Do not listen to the negative reviews, you might miss out on the most relaxing and rewarding vacation you have ever had.

Beautiful Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at Tranquility House for six years and look forward to coming for many more. The property is absolutely magnificent! Everything is beautiful and clean both inside and out. Our family loves to cook in the gourmet kitchen while looking out at the ocean. It is so generously sized that the six adults in our family can be cooking at the at the same time. The house has been exquisitely decorated in a Floridian style with hand painted murals of beach themes. The outside is well maintained with beautiful plantings and palm trees. The panoramic windows provide a spectacular view of the ocean and amazing sunsets. Although the owners have lots of rules, they are what have kept the place in pristine condition. Our grandchildren have been taught to take a shower to remove sunscreen before sitting on the furniture, wash their feet at the very convenient foot washing station when coming in from the beach and to eat at the table. They do the same things at their own homes. Tranquility House is beautiful, serene and relaxing. I highly recommend it.

My family has had the privilege to stay at Tranquility House in March and October of 2014. This is one of our very favorite places to stay and plan on returning soon. The house is immaculate, the views are breath taking, and the beaches are prisitine. It has been our tradition to arrive, stock up on groceries at the local Publix, load it up in the Honda Odyssey that is provided by the owners, cross the ferry to beautiful Palm Island, unload using the very convenient house elevator, and then kick back and relax for the rest of the week. My husband and I have three small children, who were 5,7, and 8 the first time we rented. They absolutely adore Tranquility House and Palm Island. The water is crystal clear and the beaches are covered in shells. We have also collected hundreds of sharks teeth during our visits. We have rented kayaks and paddle boards from the local marina and have enjoyed hours of paddling out with the dolphins who come out behind the house every morning. One morning a manatee came up for a visit as well. Another phenomenal experience happened a few blocks down the road on the bridge where many locals fish. We met a dolphin who has been named "Crazy", who apparently shows up almost daily around noon. She swam around, rolled over and flapped her fin at us and continued to put on a show for over an hour. We have been to Sea World, Discovery Cove and The Clearwater Marine Aquarium and have never had an encounter with a dolphin like this. I have nothing but positive things to say regarding the owners. They have been kind and respectful and easy to work with. I appreciatre the detailed inventory of the house and the picture book, because it helped us locate things and know where to return them. This is a million dollar home in immaculate condition for a reason. I completely understand the no suntan lotion/spray in house rule, because the truth is the oils can destroy fabrics on sofas and decking material. There is plenty of covered space outside to apply it. As for the washer and dryer, the only rule is no sand, which seems logical and reasonable, sand will quickly ruin appliances. The security camera made my family feel safe and secure, and unless you have something to hide, it should not be of concern. We were glad the house was being monitored. Tranquility House is a great place to come and relax and spend time with family. It is a place to slow down, take a deep breath and enjoy natures beauty. We will be back soon!

Awful

  • 1 of 5

We stayed at tranquility house and were charged a huge cleaning fee and we left the house almost spotless. There were 5 adults cleaning the house from the night before we left up until the time we left. There were ants all over the kitchen and got all over the dishes in the cabinets and drawers. The golf cart stopped working the first one we pulled it out of the garage. This is NOT a luxury house! The people were extremely difficult to deal with and we would NEVER rent this house again nor would we recommend it to anyone!

Owner's Response: This is a $2.5M beachfront property. Any local realtor will tell you this is the nicest beachfront property on Palm Island. These renters failed to read their quote and contract and were unhappy that we charged them a cleaning fee even though the fee was $100 less than our quote. The golf cart had just been returned from a complete service with new tires added. I test drove the golf cart before the guests arrived and it was perfect. The guests claim the front wheel was broken when they got it. The dealer says that is impossible. The dealer says he thinks the guests hit a stump or ditch, but he can't prove it. We did not charge the guests for the repairs, nor did we give them a refund. This is a beachfront property. There are ants. We have regular pest service. Ants are never inside unless food is left out or the property is unclean. We spiffed the property the morning of the guest arrival. There were no ants. The guests never mentioned any ants until this review. We would be happy to provide many references including each local realtor who can attest to the family use of this property and how it is maintained and cleaned.

Upscale and private

  • 5 of 5

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.
