Our family of 12 (3 couples with 2 kids each) enjoyed our stay at Tranquility Base very much! It was spacious and clean with plenty of room for everyone. The added bonus is it was within walking distance to a public beach access point! Also, there was plenty of room for the kids to play outside in the evening. I would highly recommend this property for large families!

Tranquility Base is absolutely the perfect name for this amazing, wonderful space. Unlike other properties on the island it is nestled among trees and provides spectacular views and peaceful, calming time to relax. It is beautifully upscale, but completely livable. We could not have enjoyed our stay any more. Our family gathered to see our daughter, son-in-law and children before they are transferred to San Antonio. This was the perfect space to do so. It is spacious, with two dining areas inside and more outside. Beautiful wrap around decks with three screen porches. A wonderful gas stove in the kitchen, a grill. The bedrooms are beautiful and huge! We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Tranquility Base and can't wait to go back!

This was our second stay at Tranquility Base in about 8 weeks. Beautiful home in fabulous Kure Beach. I brought my daughter and son and my daughters boyfriend. More than enough space! Master bedroom is spacious, comfortable and the bathroom is over the top nice. We love the location of being a short walk to the beach access and far enough back for peace and quiet. I would live in the House year round and I don’t say that about many rentals. Kitchen is very nice but could use some baking pans and a couple of mixing bowls. We will definitely be back as we always have a relaxing and enjoyable time and look forward to coming back soon!

Our stay at Tranquility Base was everything we hoped for. The booking process was easy and the communication was top notch. The home easily accommodated our party of 12 plus a dog and was clean and spacious. The walk to the beach took less than 5 minutes. The beach itself was not at all crowded and allowed for a relaxing environment. The kids had ample room to play without fear of getting lost in a crowd. Staying at Tranquility Base made our vacation perfect.

We rented this house for my daughters graduation weekend from UNCW. It was absolutely beautiful! The screened porches/decks gave lots of extra outside room. The outside sitting area under the house was a perfect hangout spot! We really appreciated the access to beach chairs, boogie boards, coolers, and bikes! This was a nice extra touch. It was just a quick walk to the beach! ITrip Vacations was wonderful to work with and we will definitely rent through them again!

We had such a fantastic stay in this beautiful home!! The house is so well finished and there is a lot of thought gone into the extra details. Its in a great location which is just across the street from the beach. The house feels very homey and there is a lot of space and seating for everyone - both inside and out (there are several screened porches). Its also pretty rare to find a house with four equally great bedrooms. I would definitely stay here again! It really is as beautiful as it looks in the photos!

We were very impressed with the inspection team who were just leaving as we arrived. They were welcoming and answered all of our questions requarding house details. Supervisor, Linda, wrote a list of best local eateries, fresh produce stands, and entertainment venues. We are impressed! Thank you!

We visited Kure Beach for a long weekend. We arrived at the home and found it to be perfect. It could not have been cleaner or better equipped. It has a very nice kitchen and the home is nicely decorated. The floors are beautiful wood and the furniture is in great shape. The bathrooms are all beautifully tiled and the bedrooms are very large with a deck off each room. The master suite has a king foam mattress which was very comfortable. The master bath was huge with a whirlpool tub and large shower. Each bedroom has a flat screen TV and cable. The living room has a large flat screen. There is outdoor seating on the ground level and a dining table on the first level which is screened in to keep the flies and mosquitoes out. Inside is another large dining table. They also have an outdoor shower. In five minutes you can walk to Fort Fisher and in one minute you can be on the beach. The ferry to Southport is just 10 minutes south and well worth the $10 round trip cost per car. If you are visiting the area take a close look at Tranquility Base. It is super nice home in a great location.

Everything about the house was just perfect. It is nicely furnished, clean, and convenient. The house truly lives up to the name Tranquility Base. It is located in a calm, peaceful part of the Kure Beach, and it is surrounded by mature trees. It also has a lot of parking space which we needed since we were having a family reunion.
