This beach house is located in a most peaceful community no busy traffic, plenty of room inside and out, just a short walk to the beach, the kids loved the wi-fi when it rained, our stay was a perfect 4 days. The mosquitos didn't have a chance. This place is at the top of our list.

Great House - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at this property before and each time we are more impressed as the owners continue to do improvements! This time we were greeted by a picnic table under the house, new gas grill, outdoor shower and some new deck furniture! We will continue to come back here as the beach is more peaceful and less crowded than others in the area. The house is always clean and inviting. Beds and bedding are extremely comfortable! The modern kitchen is well stocked, two bathrooms make getting ready easy, and the deck offers great views! .

We loved our stay at Peace and Tranquility. From the house it is a short walk to the beach. The house is comfortable and well-equipped. We hope we can return soon!

Needs some attention to detail

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I traveled 12 hours to stay here. At first look everything seemed fine, the house itself is very beautiful and the furniture is nice. The bed was very comfortable. The beach was a little farther than I expected. A long walk for two older people like ourselves.

We only used the master bedroom and bath as there were only two of us, but the place was not real clean. I had to clean the bathroom myself. There was no toilet paper in the house. The master bathroom cabinets and drawers had hair brushes, combs and other people's items in them. There was a lot of hair in the bathroom. Someone had taken a bath with oil and had not cleaned the tub. The refrigerator was not clean and would not even really make our bottled water cold. It was set on the coldest setting already. There were many broken items around the house...Mini blinds in the living room, patio furniture, lawn chairs. I took two lawn chairs on the long walk to the beach only to discover that they were broken. The bed sheets were old, worn and stained. The kitchen cabinets had a lot of junk in them. There were empty wine and pop bottles on the cabinet. Were these suppose to be decorations? I think empty bottles of Arbor Mist and Dr Pepper are trash. There was no cleaning supplies that I could find except for windex and bleach. The other cleaning product bottles were empty. I did speak to the owner and she apologized. Evidently the persons she has managing are not doing their job. This property could be amazing with more TLC and attention to details.

Owner's Response: I take my guests' comfort and happiness very seriously and as such, am sorry that you weren't 100% thrilled. I will be down at the property in 10 days and will look into your concerns. Certainly, cleaning and ridding drawers of past guests discards will be a priority. A couple of quick responses. According to google maps and the plot maps our house is .2 miles from beach - as listed. The sheets for master bedroom were replaced in January, but I certainly will check their condition as I did leave a couple of older spare sets. Unfortunately, my husband does believe that the dr. Pepper bottle is decorative :-( I happen to agree with you, but maybe a fellow "antiquer" guest thought they would follow suit with a liquor bottle (which I will direct my very kind, competent neighbor who helps with the house to throw out) I will also ask her to check the temperature/cleanliness of the refrigerator as that is a big concern. Thank you for your input, as future guests always benefit from TLC!
