There is not a better name than Tranquility Bay; we take a vacation to rest & relax and the name fits PERFECTLY. If we were to ever buy a house, THIS would be the model to base everything on. This is why we like returning to it every year for our anniversary.- John P , Posted: 10/26/2020

Love this property! This is the 3rd time I've stayed at Tranquility Bay and hope to again. It's furnished beautifully with care.- Linda E , Posted: 07/21/2020
What a beautiful gem on the island!! We fished, kayaked and caught blue crabs off the pier and had an amazing night on the deck eating boiled crab and watching the distant fireworks over the water. With the beaches being closed for the 4th of July, this provided an option that totally exceeded our expectations.- Timothy B , Posted: 07/07/2020

We chose this rental because of it's great location - super quiet and direct access to the bay.- Julie P , Posted: 06/11/2020
My family had the BEST time staying at the Tranquility Bay Cottage! We fished non-stop from the private dock behind the house - caught trout, redfish, black drum, hardhead, and croakers - my son even caught a massive 37" black drum!! Beautiful location on the bay - perfect for kayaking. The house was immaculate - came with everything we needed.- Julie P , Posted: 06/11/2020

Loved the house and location but the bed was so hard we didn't sleep well at all and actually left early because of it.- Lisa S , Posted: 03/03/2020
Hi Lisa - We are sorry that the Tempur-Pedic mattress at Tranquility Bay Cottage wasn't to your liking. Be sure to give us a call when you're planning your next visit - we'd be happy to help you find a home with softer beds!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 03/06/2020
We had a great weekend stay at the property. The house is clean, the kitchen has all the kitchenware we needed. Since we love fishing, the private pier is what caught our eye on this property and it did not disappoint us! My husband caught red and speckled trouts and my son caught a sheepshead all in good sizes! We also appreciate Sand n Sea for checking on us during our stay. Definitely a 5star for us and we have recommended them to our friends. We are looking forward to our next stay with them!- Margaret Grace A , Posted: 01/15/2020
Everything in the house was impeccable from this fresh smell when you walked in the door to the beautiful views from every single window! we can’t wait to come back again!- Paula I , Posted: 01/06/2020

Very good property and aptly named.- Wanda O , Posted: 11/24/2019

Luxury Romantic Getaway
Tranquility is very aptly named — breathtaking views of both the bay and the protected wetlands! This cottage provides the best of both our worlds - he enjoyed fishing off the pier, while I relaxed on the deck birdwatching. We’re celebrating our 45 wedding anniversary in a few weeks and this was a perfect location to unwind and celebrate US! The minuet attention to detail is astonishing! Even down to the hangers in the closet, we are swaddled in luxury! Can’t wait to book our next trip!- Terri R from Clear Lake City, TX, Posted: 06/30/2019
Beautifully maintained peaceful cottage. A birdwatcher ‘ s paradise.- Cathey L , Posted: 05/25/2019
Beautiful sweet house built for a couple! My husband and I just loved it. The fishing was great and the view is amazing. The wetlands were perfect for kayaking and bird watching. The house is just a couple of miles from the beach, as well! Very nice accommodations and great deck for yoga! Very happy with this year's choice!- Susie B , Posted: 05/20/2019
As a couple most rentals are too large fro just the two of us this one bedroom was just right.- thomas c , Posted: 04/22/2019
Have stayed with Sand n Sea last 3 years- Robert H , Posted: 01/06/2019
We enjoyed this Getaway so much. The size and location were perfect. We will be back and take in more of the beautiful scenery and relaxation.- Anonymous U , Posted: 12/06/2018
We have enjoyed it so much that we have made small changes to our own home to "remind" us of the Tranquility cottage.- John P , Posted: 11/23/2018
Loved this house. Nice view and very comfortable.- James W , Posted: 11/09/2018
Quite and peaceful area. Nice property.- Glenn P , Posted: 09/25/2018
We have stayed at this property on three different occasions this summer. Property seems fairly new and is a very nice one bedroom bay home. Situated almost at the end of a very popular fishing destination for waders and kayakers the road gets a high volume of traffic during the weekends and some during the weekdays with parking only allowed on the main road in front of the property. (4-5am) The pier does not have any lights for after dark fishing if you are inclined to do so. I would more than likely stay there more often if there were lights available for night fishing but it may not materialize. Signifiant other does not fish so she enjoyed viewing the bird life and there is an abundance of birds.- Raymond, Jr. R , Posted: 08/10/2018
I absolutely LOVED this little house! Not only was the location "just right" but the interior was beautifully decorated - the furnishings, kitchenware, decor - was all first class! It was a perfect vacation for me!- Linda E , Posted: 07/31/2018
Tranquility Bay Cottage
The name says it all...Tranquillity Bay Cottage... It was a perfect getaway for two people wanting to celebrate their 35 th anniversary, but also needing a peaceful,secluded,tranquil getaway from the hustle bustle of the daily stress that life can throw ya,The bay side gave us every thing we needed plus more! The house is absolutely charming with beautiful decor and a excellent fully equipped kitchen! We had daily success on fishing from the pier for our own dinner. The only complaint we would have is there is no fishing lights on pier for night time fishing and there is no cleaning station, but we made due...other than that... We loved our stay and it put us in the zen place we needed to be!!!!We will definitely be back, when it comes time for taking time out for each other!!!Thank you Sand and Sea for always helping our getaways the best that they can be!!!- Karen W from Pasadena Texas, Posted: 07/07/2018
Excellent- Raymond, Jr. R , Posted: 07/03/2018

Tranquility Bay Cottage
We stayed this past Memorial Weekend (2018) and it was so beautiful, peaceful and tranquil. We hated to leave. The house is fully stocked with everything you need! The private fishing pier is awesome. My son and I each caught a baby shark. It was so much fun and look forward to visiting again.- Michele S from Whitney, Tx., Posted: 05/31/2018
We can't wait to welcome you back!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 05/31/2018

Stay away from our house!! LOL!! (just kidding) "You will be pleasantly surprised at the comfortability of these houses compared to "same price hotel stays"....- John P , Posted: 03/09/2018
Very comfortable home! Perfect for 4 or less guests. Fishing was great! Would like to have had a crab trap on the property. Didn't think to bring one. Nice, quiet setting! Love the bay side.- Sandra Z , Posted: 08/27/2017
Tranquility Bay Cottage is thoroughly stocked with all the amenities you could possibly need during your vacation. The home and view from this home are amazing. Our family really enjoyed the use of the private fishing pier and even caught interesting marine life such as sting rays, eel and drum. We would definitely stay here again in the future.- Amy B , Posted: 08/20/2017
We have been going to Galveston for years and never knew that this location existed. It is perfect for getting away from the crowds but still not being far away from everything.- Kristin G , Posted: 07/31/2017
Just FYI the right front burner on the stove did not light, also the manual can opener was broken. Had a great time fishing was great off the pier and the sunsets were incredible.- John F , Posted: 07/18/2017
Thank you for the feedback re the can opener - it's been replaced! Also, our appliance tech is addressing the one burner that's not working.
We look forward to seeing you again soon!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 07/24/2017

we have stayed on the gulf side and now the bay side, we liked the bay side best- Anonymous h from wichita,kansas, Posted: 10/22/2016
Sunsets at this home are beautiful. Home is modern and everything you could possible want for is there. Quite neighbor away from the hustle and bustle of the seawall but only a short drive when you're ready to experience some excellent seafood.- Anonymous B from Rowlett, TX., Posted: 10/11/2016
This rental was very nice and had all the things anyone would need to cook with. One of our party has been a chef and he was amazed at the type of cookware and dishes we had. It was great fishing from the pier and the beach is a short drive from the property. Would stay here again. It looks like a new home very clean and looked just like the pictures on the website.- Anonymous W from Pilot Point TX-Lewisville TX, Posted: 09/18/2016
Beautiful 1-bedroom cottage with private pier. Kitchen is well stocked. Caught plenty of fish and crabs from the pier. When taking a break from fishing, we went kayaking and canoing in the bay. Beautiful view of the bay in the back and the wetland in the front. Great place to stay for family with kids who love the outdoors. It would be nicer if the fishing pier has light for night time fishing and fresh water for cleaning fish. We would definitely stay here again. There is only a 2 hours window for checking-in (3:00-5:00pm). After 5:00pm is considered late check-in with additional $30 in cash for the agent. There should be a free late check-in with key in the lockbox.- Anonymous N from Pearland, Texas, Posted: 09/06/2016
Hello Nguyen Family, Thank you for your feedback! For security reasons (for our guests and homeowners) we are unable to leave keys for check-in. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you at the beach again soon!- Sand 'N Sea Properties, Posted: 07/06/2017
Good location for the outdoor type looking for a good fishing location. Great birding location.- Dan K from Frisco, TX, Posted: 08/06/2016
Excellent location on the bay with a private pier. Caught lots of crabs and fishing was good. Love that this was on a somewhat secluded road. We will definitely stay here again- Anonymous P from Richmond, Tx, Posted: 07/07/2016
