Welcome to my St Augustine vacation home!
Hello! I'm Dan and I'm the owner of Tranquil Dunes!
I grew up about an hour and a half away in Gainesville (don't worry Georgia fans, Dawgs are welcome! 😀). I've been coming to St. Augustine since I was 4 years old and staying at St. Augustine Ocean and Racquet Resort since it was first built in 1985.
When I started looking for a beach home in early 2000, I naturally began my search where I've been coming for many years. Frankly, the other condominium complexes didn't have much of a chance! From the excellent maintenance of the grounds to the wonderful amenities and community, it was an easy choice.
While I initially bought my home as a weekend retreat, life throws curves sometimes and I ended up relocating across the pond to Switzerland (blame it on a lady!). I started in Geneva but currently live in Zurich where I do strategic business and marketing consulting. While there are many great things about Switzerland, I try to get back to St Augustine at least once or twice a year. That way I have a natural chocolate fasting unless I stumble onto excellent Claud's Chocolate downtown!
As you may have guessed, getting back on the weekends was quite a challenge so that is why I decided to open up my home to you! It just didn't make sense to have my home sitting empty.
So where did the name "Tranquil Dunes" come from? I'm glad you asked! One day while sipping a margarita at the boardwalk, I glanced at the dunes and thought to myself "how relaxing and tranquil it is here" Wanting to name my home, the lightbulb went off and well, Tranquil Dunes was born and the rest is history!
