Why Kids Love It
The bunk beds are custom built in - very sturdy! Kids love the pool!
Cape San Blas is a small narrow piece of land that sticks out into the Gulf of Mexico that forms the Pristine St Josephs Bay. We are more laid back and natural than our neighbors to the west. No high rises or commercialization here. It's a very unique beautiful area. Powder white sand beaches on one side and the pristine clear bay on the other. Fishing, boating, scalloping, nature watching & relaxing is what we do here.

Teresa's Beach Homes
Year Purchased: 2016
About the owner: Ron & Sandie live in Kentucky and visited Cape San Blas years ago and fell in love with the area. Sandie LOVES the beach and one of her favorite pastimes is shelling. They had owned another home on the north Cape we rented for them for 10 years but Sandie wanted to look around at other homes and found "her heart" as she describes it. Tranquil Seclusion has everything that was on her want list. This home is very well maintained and the owners are always making improvements - Sandie purchased some very nice loungers for the deck this year and a few new rugs. Ron loves to improve as well and is very meticulous about his work. This past visit he oiled all the reclaimed wood floors and found a fix for that shutter that always wanted to make noise when the wind blew. and had some landscaping updated. They are both very proud homeowners and it really shows! Bet you will love this home as much as they do, come see us!
Why this property? The owners of Tranquil Seclusion fell in love with this home the first time they saw it. Located in a quiet neighborhood and had all the amenities they were looking for in a home. This home was custom built just 2 years prior and has 2 mini wet bars with ice machines, a 2nd living area, elevator, private pool and more. It was built by one of the best contractors around and is very nicely finished.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
This home is beautiful. Rarely have we stayed somewhere that was better than the pictures. The kitchen/dining/main living area is very large and open. The kitchen island is at least twice the width of a normal kitchen island and longer than normal as well. The two ice makers were great for beach coolers. We had several unique requests that property manager met. They were very accommodating. Would stay again without any hesitation.
Have always loved the Cape and Tranquil Seclusions made the stay perfect. The pictures in the listings do not do this place justice. Well decorated, very comfortable, beautiful views, love the heated pool and the screened porches. The elevator made it easy to get luggage and food in the house. Thank you Teresa it is always a pleasure to stay in your homes.
The beach house is wonderful and the spacious rooms are very cozy. We went horse riding in the beach and enjoyed the view where you get the sunset/sunrise. Recommend for couples and families to enjoy this getaway.
We stayed here back in September and the house is great. Well stocked kitchen, clean, and nicely decorated.
This was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. This home is so beautiful and well set up. The decorating is perfect and fits the gulf view perfect. The view is fantastic and we especially enjoyed our time sitting by the large pool and taking a welcome swim when we got to warm. The shops and restaurants in the surrounding are are awesome. The pictures do not do this home justice. The minute we walked in we fell in love with it.The elevator makes moving in so easy. Can't wait to make a return trip to the Cape and will definately stay at Tranquil Seclusions and no where else. F & C

Myself and 11 College friends stayed here in June! Let me say the house was Amazing! Beautifully decorated and plenty of room for all of us! The pool was so much fun and relaxing to have available. We even did splash contests! Teresa’s Beach Homes was the best to work with. I can tell you this, my group has found a rental company for the rest of our trips in the future to the Cape no doubt. Thank you again for making wonderful memories for my college gals! We will be back to celebrate 36th years of friendship!!

This home was lovely, clean, well maintained, tastefully furnished and stocked with everything we needed – and then some. All three generations thoroughly enjoyed the spacious accommodations, wide open beach and welcoming heated private pool. Working with Teresa and Terri couldn’t have been easier. They were always available, and instructions and expectations were clearly communicated. We’ll definitely be back! Norris Family, Atlanta Metro

Perfect fit for our family
We started renting from Ron and Sandie after Hurricane Michael devastated our home we have been staying at for years in Mexico Beach. When we discovered Teresa's Beach Homes, and Met Terri. We knew this would be our new home away from home. We have stayed at a couple other of their homes, but Tranquil Seclusion is the best by far. We felt like we belonged, like we knew this was the one for us going forward. They treat you like family, not like an inconvenience. We declared that this will be the home we come to going forward, and I have to say (family all agreed) the screened in porches are a game changer. Hurricane Laura thought she was going to derail our plans, and she failed. This is by far the most beautiful home you own we have stayed in. Thank you for allowing us to make family memories at your home. Next year, our 1st Grand daughter will be with us. I can not wait to start making family memories with her at Tranquil Seclusion.Thanks again Ron and Sandie and Terri. see you guys next year. The Glass Family from Dayton, Ohio. Kevin, Benita, Jesse, Taylor and Kristina.

There are so many great things to say about Tranquil Seclusion, I don't know where to begin! The home is beautifully decorated and so comfortable - everything you need and more. Having a private pool was really nice, especially in the evenings when the kids wanted to swim. And the elevator was a life saver for our 12 year old springer spaniel (and for bringing in luggage and groceries). The owners are extremely attentive and respond promptly if you need anything. I just can't say enough about wonderful this place is. Our family was in love and can't wait to return.

Can’t wait to return
We stayed at this property in September - always a beautiful time to be on the gulf. Not only was this house amazing and exactly as advertised, working with Terri made it even better because of the wonderful resources and info she provides. Despite ongoing hurricane cleanup, we had every thing we needed and wanted for our stay - and the beach was still amazing! We are looking forward to returning so we can see all the continued progress in the area. We’ve been visiting the gulf coast/panhandle area for almost 20 years and this stay/this property was, by far, our favorite!

This home was beautiful & so well appointed! It was obvious that the owners have taken a personal interest in their home . We have rented many homes over the years but this one was so special... from the art, kitchen so well appointed and beautiful pool complete w pool toys! I highly recommend this home for a wonderful vacation. Customer service was outstanding from the moment we rented! We blew a fuse the day we arrived & w/i minutes of my call someone was there to take care of it! 5 stars!

Mary Jane, thank you so much for your wonderful review. The owners of this home are amazing and do a wonderful job to provide a wonderful home that is a breeze to maintain for all of you guests. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you back soon.
We've been staying on the Cape for over ten years now and this is the first time staying on the south end. Tranquil Seclusion is a beautiful home in every way. The layout is friendly and it has everything you'll need. The beach cart is very handy! We especially enjoyed the pool. It's nice to have after coming off the beach and still wanting to cool down around dinner time. The gulf water is more brackish, salty and some seaweed / grass, but wasnt a deal breaker. I'd highly recommend the house and Teresa's beach homes. Have exclusively used Teresa's since coming to Cape San Blas and have always been very satisfied in their homes and service.

The house had everything we needed. We ended up with 6 adults there with plenty of room to feel at home for the week. The extra ice makers and refrigerators were a blessing for food and drinks, we never had to buy ice for the coolers either :) The house is well decorated and perfect for dogs, all the balconies are screened and railed, even the pool area! And there is a nice grassy area outside for the doggies as well, which is sometimes hard to find with a beach house. Over all the house has everything you could think of and then some, the house music speakers were my favorite surprise, just Bluetooth and good to go. We have been using Teresa's Beach homes for years and always have excellent service from them! We would definitely come back, great property!!!

Fabulous Vacation Home
This was our second family vacation to the “Cape” with Theresa’s Beach Homes and they never disappoint. Tranquil Seclusions is a great vacation home for a full family. This home was well planned out for the family vacationer. Beautifully decorated, kitchen well stocked and multiple entertaining areas. Room for the entire family and yet areas to get away as well. Screened in porches allow evening beach views without the bugs. Nice private pool for those red flag days or a morning/evening swim. We loved the quiet end of the beach where this home is located and will certainly plan a return trip!

We have stayed in homes from St. George Island to Gulf Shores for over 25 years and this was by far the best property we have ever rented. The house was more than we ever expected. Every part of the house was so carefully planned and decorated. Everything we could possibly need was there. The beds slept great and the beach side pool was to die for. There was no way to tell that there was a hurricane last year. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking to rent on the Cape.

Excellent Property for the Family
We were immensely impressed with Tranquil Seclusion. It is very well designed with many amenities. We especially enjoyed the screened in porches and large, open kitchen. The private pool is perfectly located for a nice swim after coming in from the beach. Room locations were ideal for our family with the bunk room being on the upper floor and the other adult rooms being on the second floor. The elevator was a huge help with Senior Citizen parents.

Pictures don’t do this home justice!!!
The pictures of this home is beautiful but just do not do it justice! It exceeded our expectations. Kitchen was fully stock with everything you every need for cooking meals, rooms were spacious and comfy! Our kids enjoyed the bunk room and sleeping in there “own” beds!!!! Beautiful from top to bottom. Views were stunning. The pool really tipped our vacation it was the perfect way to end our evening from the day at the beach!!! We were very pleased and can’t wait to stay again!!

We have been coming down to the Cape for the past 12 years and have stayed in three different houses. This is our absolute favorite and we will be returning for the third time. This house offers spectacular views and luxury including the pool. The screened balconies are great for watching the stars at night and the stocked kitchen has everything we needed. This house offers total privacy on a beautiful beach with close proximity to lots of scenic towns. There is no place I would rather be!
