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 Coastal North Carolina

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.

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

George & Suzanne were a pleasure to meet & rent from, their home is meticulous. You can feel the love & warmth as soon as you enter through the front door. Had everything we needed and more. Beach was amazing, and we couldn't have asked for better weather. Our family had so much fun! Enjoyed the chocolate covered pretzels that George & Suzanne left for us. Hoping we can coordinate another family trip to Emerald Isle, and rent Tranquility Shores again. We were all so sad when it came time to leave.

Thank you so much George & Suzanne for sharing your lovely home with our family.

Beautiful and relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year in a row staying at Tranquility. The owners are super responsive to the little issues we have had. One was the internet not working well ( my husband had to work) and George had the cable company out asap. The other problem was the pool heater had kicked off and again George was on top of it and had the pool guy come right away to turn it back on for us. We met our family here and had plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. We watched dolphins jumping in the ocean as we ate dinner- beautiful. I have to say everyones favorite part was the pool. The weather was so great so we were able to swim everyday but one. I would recommend this rental to everyone. Just amazing-

Emerald Isle

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best vacation houses my husband and I have stayed in. Everything we needed was right there especially the beach and swimming pool. We plan to return in years to come. Thanks for renting this house to us.

Superb in every way

  • 5 of 5

I can only use superlatives to describe our stay. George and Susanne are easy to keep in touch with, were warmly welcoming when we arrived, and attentive to being sure that the house is in the best possible condition for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The house is beautiful and was spic and span when we arrived. Our family was 7 adults and four kids ages 1 to 6, and the spaciousness enabled us to be totally comfortable. The Deroschers make sure that the bathrooms and kitchen have disposables to jump-start things. The kitchen is fully equipped - pots, pans, cooking implements, electric griddle for pancakes, a double waffle iron (!), and a full spice rack (!!). We didn't try the hot tub, but everyone enjoyed the swimming pool and easy walk to a very nice beach. George suggested that we bring a shade canopy. Ours was 10' by 10' and was just one of many along the shore. My wife was able to sit in the shade looking at the ocean and read - her favorite beach vacation activity. If you'd like to gather your family together for a week at the beach, Tranquility is the place to do it.

Wonderful Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We returned from our week's vacation at Tranquility last week, with wonderful memories of one of the best family vacations we've had . We had 17 people, and plenty of room in this house. It was very clean, the beds comfortable, with very nice bedding, the kitchen had any appliance or kitchen gadget that you would need. The hot tub and pool were immaculate, and the beach was beautiful, clean, and not crowded and steps away from the house, it is literally in the back yard - we had bikes delivered, and rode to get ice cream, coffee, and shopping on the bike path, which was safe for our young teens to explore. We spent most of our time on the outside deck, taking in the amazing ocean view! If we ever have the chance to get us all together again, we will come back to this house. The owners, George and Suzanne, are very nice and available for anything you may need or suggestions on exploring Emerald Isle. Don't pass this house up, it was the best!!

The house and owners are just incredible

  • 5 of 5

George and Suzanne are just the nicest people you can meet and they take great care of their home. You will not be able to find a cleaner or well stocked beach house, right down to the incredible soft sheets. There is nothing more you can need or want when you rent this house. Can't wait to return.

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.
