Tranquil (and delightful) Times

  • 5 of 5

The name of this house is what caught my attention first. I was looking for a quiet beach escape during the winter holidays so I’d be able to write in a nice environment. This rental lived to all of my expectations. It is a clean, cozy, nicely furnished and decorated residence in a quiet neighborhood flanking the beach. The only sound I heard at night was that of the wind. All living quarters are on the second floor and since the house is surrounded by small trees, privacy when inside is very nice. Although the screened porch is very cool, I gave my preference to the crow’s nest above the house, which not only offers a partial view of the ocean but also a totally open view of the marsh on the sound side. I got a whole lot of sky and beautiful sunsets from the latter. The kitchen is very well equipped and the Wi-Fi excellent. The location is very convenient, just a few miles down from the busier Nags Head. The owner is very responsive and professional. I really enjoyed my stay at Tranquil Times and will definitely plan on returning to it in the future.

Perfect house for our long weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Tranquil Times was the perfect house for our long weekend getaway! We love staying in South Nags Head - close enough to the shopping/restaurants but still has the "old" Nags Head feel....and of course it is close to our favorite restaurant Sam and Omie's!! We had a total of 5 staying at the house - plenty of room for everyone, clean, and kitchen was well equipped with utensils and cookware, all the amenities we needed. Very short walk to the beach. We even rode out Hurricane Matthew - whew what a ride! Owner was great to work with - will definitely look into renting again next year for our October getaway!!

Perfect Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I was first attracted to this listing by the Friday-Friday rental (plus I love the name of the place!), since most Nags Head rentals are Saturday-Saturday. But once I arrived at Tranquil Times, I discovered it was the perfect beach cottage for our extended family of 6 adults and two children. The place is clean and well-stocked with kitchen utensils and bath linens. It's a short walk to the beach and a short drive to fishing piers and restaurants, and the location is quiet and away from the traffic on 158. It took only a few minutes to drive to Brodie Lighthouse and Oregon Inlet. We loved having wireless access, the outdoor shower stall, and washer and dryer. We had 3 cars and a trailer, and all fit into the driveway and carport beneath the house so we didn't have to park on the street. All in all, we did not have one complaint about anything -- other than the arrival of Hurricane Arthur on Thursday, July 3! None of us were keen on riding out the storm, so we cut short our stay by one day and left before Arthur arrived. We hated to leave this wonderful place! I would highly recommend Tranquil Times to anyone wanting to rent a beach house in South Nags Head.

Fantastic Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband, my 2 kids (ages 13 and 16) spent 2 glorious weeks in this clean, well-appointed home. Since the walk to the beach is less than 5 minutes, all of us enjoyed early morning walks down to the national seashore, lounging during the day and then evening walks after sunset. We saw dolphin, all types of seabirds and the water was so clear we could see fish as we swam in the ocean. Every day was easy since we could eat at the house or picnic at the beach using the cart which came with the house. This home is perfect for families in that there's a washer/dryer and plenty of space for the kids to spread out and have a bit of privacy if the weather is bad. Staying in S. Nags Head is also a perfect jumping off spot to visit Roanoke, Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands as well as driving north to Jockey's Ridge, Kill Devil Hills and even Corolla. I highly recommend this property and we all look forward to returning again soon.

Beautiful Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

The name says it all! Tranquil times was just that for our vacation. We went during "off season" and it was so quiet. There was no one else around us. The house is nice and cozy and clean. We spent a lot of time in the screened in porch and on the upper deck enjoying that ocean view. It was a very short walk to the beach too. The owner was very easy to reach when needed and was very quick to respond back to messages. We would definitely rent here again!
