Amazing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Spent a nice long weekend at the Tranquility house....wish I was back there! The perfect combination of accommodations and hospitality would be difficult to explain except to say it was perfect. The house has everything you need, the beach is across the street and several restaurants within walking distance. Savanah is a $5 trolley ride away, stops at two island locations. Sue keeps this property beautiful and truly wants your stay to be your personal getaway. The house itself is imaculately clean and well stocked with everything you need. I highly recommend the a Tranquility house for your next getaway, a great place for the southern touch of hospitality.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Tranquility House is a perfect home for a larger gathering.

Our party of 14 - four adult couples and and six children ranging in age from 1-7yrs of age - found it to be perfect. The home is well laid out and we never felt cramped. This home is extremely well maintained by Sue and Jay with lots of little extras that make your vacation effortless. The kitchen is well appointed for those like us to cook in every meal. The location is quite close to the beach - an easy walk, even with the little ones. For those who are elderly or disabled, be warned that there are lots of stairs! The pool and ample outdoor areas both on the large front porch and next to the pool are an fantastic bonus. We found ourselves relaxing in the pool every evening after a long day on the beach.

Sue is extremely responsive and personable. Overall, I don't think we could have had a better experience on Tybee and we cannot wait to return.

Chillin' on Tybee Island

  • 5 of 5

I booked our vacation for Tranquility House for our family of 6 and three extended family members; all adults. Sue could not have been more helpful prior to the booking, after reserving the home and during our stay. She responded almost immediately to any email and/or text I sent with the most helpful information whether it be suggestions on Savannah tours, restaurants, or traffic issues. Tranquitlity House is quite lovely. We had ample room for the 8 adults. Everyone's bed was comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked. The pool is smaller but still plenty of room to splash around and cool down after a day at the beach. Included with the rental are multiple bikes and everything you could possibly want or need for a day at the beach. It was wonderful to be able to load up sand chairs, the big canopy or a small umbrella for shade, a cooler etc. on one of the pull carts and take that to the beach for the day. Tybee Island is a small, lazy scenic island to slow down and enjoy a bike ride, walk on the beach, paddleboarding, or kayaking. It is an easy 30 minute drive into Savannah for sightseeing, shopping or dinner. We would not hesitate to stay at Tranquility House again and give it our highest recommendation especially considering the added bonus of such a great owner/host!

Extraordinary home - and Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We booked our first family (of 16) vacation with Sue and Jay at the Tranquility House and WOW - it was fantastic! Everything was perfect, down to the super comfy bedding, plentiful linens, and well equipped kitchen. Our grandkids really loved the on site pool and we loved being able to lounge and enjoy watching them have a blast.

The walk to the beach was great and only one short block away. We spent alot of time there. Our only regret is that we didn't look through all of the beach chairs, coolers, etc that were available to us earlier in the week. We found that there was EVERYTHING you could ever wish for and then some but this was on Thursday and we were leaving on Saturday. That was our own fault because Sue did an outstanding job of listing everthing on the website.

My kids kept saying "Wow, they thought of everything!" I'm sure our next beach vacation, we'll be in touch with Sue and Jay to book this wonderful, amazing, beautiful home of theirs once again!

You can't go wrong!

Great family vacation home!!

  • 5 of 5

We just came home from our stay at the Tranquility House on Tybee Island. All I can say is.....WOW! This was my side of the families first time going on vacation together and this house was perfect! The kids loved the pool and the beach is a short walk away! The house was very clean and the owners, Sue and Jay actually made a point to personally meet us! There is plenty to do within walking distance of the house and some great places to eat both in Tybee and in Savannah! We want to thank Sue and Jay for opening their home for such a great vacation for our family and we would recommend this house to anyone!!!

Tranquility House: Our Family Beach Week Destination for the Past 4 Years

  • 5 of 5

Four years ago, after selling a townhouse in a mountain resort community in western North Carolina,

we were approached by our grown daughters with a desire to establish a family beach week each summer. They wanted to go to a laid back family beach with limited commercial development,within 5 hours driving distance from Atlanta, a place that would accommodate our grandchildren, ages 1-12 at the time, and they wanted us to find a large house where we could all have private space with sufficient bathrooms, but they especially wanted large common spaces where we could cook, eat, play games and watch movies. Because we had two toddlers, they wanted it to be no more than a block from the beach. Given that wish list, we all began using our online skills to find likely candidates.

When we came to Tranquility House, our hearts stopped and so did our search! It was everything we were looking for and more. It has a lovely lap pool, perfect for children of all ages-- and their grandparents. It is beautifully furnished and perfectly maintained by owners Jay and Sue, who are warm and hospitable hosts as well as meticulous landlords. Other than groceries and sunscreen, almost anything you could possibly need to have an unforgettable beach week is provided, including a closet full of board games, a bookcase filled with movies for young children, a beach cart and canopy, along with beach chairs, toys and bicycles.

The evaluation forms guests complete at the end of a stay asks for items which would make their stay more comfortable and items which need to be repaired or replaced. Having made 3 requests last year, for a large electric buffet pan, separate trash and recycle bins for the kitchen, and new towels, we were delighted to find these items had been purchased this year. Keep in mind that we only made these requests at the end of our third year--not a bad record.

The cleaning crew for Tranquility House does a superb job of keeping the house in tip-top condition. Our daughters remarked on entering last week how clean everything looked and smelled. Kudos to this crew!

Everything including the grocery store is within walking distance, and though we have toured Ft. Pulaski and taken in a movie or two in Savannah, we are there to enjoy the beach, and prepare almost all our meals. We do enjoy Sundae Cafe and the younger set enjoys Sting Ray's. The fireworks show was the best. Teens enjoy walking to get ice cream at shops along the front. We hope to return many more years

Location

Activity and Interests

One block from our house to the Atlantic Ocean and lots of sandy beach to enjoy relaxing, watching dolphins, birds, taking long walks, collecting shells, swimming, surfing, or kite flying. Only 1/2 block from our house to Tybee Market IGA. Several restaurants are as close as 2 blocks, and a short walk will bring you to the Tybee Pier and popular south beach area with a wide assortment of restaurants, art stores, and gift shops.
