What our guests say...

A great place for a Florida vacation!

“It is wonderful when a house and the property owner combine to provide a great vacation. Gulf Tranquility is a well maintained, clean, well appointed and comfortable house. The pool was amazing. Gulf Tranquility provided privacy while still being close to shopping, restaurants, the beach and several golf courses. The owner, David S., is very accommodating and responded to the few questions we had very quickly. He made us feel more like guests than renters. We are looking forward to our 2020 stay! “


Great home and holiday

“Gulf Tranquility surpassed our expectations and the owners were really helpful and extremely easy to deal with. The house is very well equipped and is maintained to a very high standard. Situated in peaceful location with a pool that is particularly private and not overlooked. The house backs on to a canal where you can see and enjoy the local wildlife . We would definitely recommend this house if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing break. Port Charlotte Mall and Restaurants are about a 30 min drive away and cater for everyone’s needs. “

“My wife and I come from Denmark and have stayed several times in Florida for a golf vacation. The house this time was far the best. Location is good and the house is very well equipped, especially the kitchen. And everything was clean and in good condition. It was easy to communicate with the owner and his local representative who takes care of the house was very service minded. We enjoyed our vacation and will for sure come back next year. We can for sure recommend the house, especially if you play golf. We also liked the bicycles and if the house also had golf sets, you could rent, we couldn’t ask for more.”


The perfect place to spend your holiday

Rotonda is a beautifully maintained community whose location close to some of the best beaches on the Gulf coast couldn’t be better.
The property itself is in a nice private position and is beautifully maintained. The quality of all of the furnishings and fittings is exceptional, and we wanted for nothing during our three week stay. The pool area had recently been updated to a very high standard and was supported by a full suite of pool furniture. There was even a full pool guard fitted to protect young children, but this is removable (at your own risk) if you have an older family like ours. Cycles were available for our use at the property as well. All in all our holiday here was as good as it could have been and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

Great villa peaceful location

Gulf Tranquility is an exceptionally spacious villa, very well equipped and furnished to a high standard and in a very nice peaceful location. The property was very clean and tidy on our arrival.

There is an excellent good sized pool and plenty of outdoor equipment should you need it. The canal along the rear of the property is great for fishing and if you are out BBQing in the evening there can be few better settings.

Certainly a property I would not hesitate in recommending for families of all age groups.

Situated in peaceful location with a pool that is particularly private and not overlooked. The house backs on to a canal where you can see and enjoy the local wildlife at a safe distance (especially the occasional alligator). I would definitely recommend this house if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing break. Port Charlotte Mall and Restaurants are about a 30 min drive away and cater for everyone’s needs.”
