Double Bay estate description
Se-ren-i-ty, noun, 'the state of being calm, tranquil and relaxed'.
The perfect place for your first or fiftieth 'honeymoon'. Serenity is a 4 acre, private, secluded estate located in the center of the pink sand beach known as Double Bay. The house overlooks multi-hued turquoise blue waters and each room has a view of the sea.
This home for the discriminating couple is furnished with the elements of an elegant lifestyle.
Fine china, crystal, original artwork and sculpture reflect the colors of the Bahamian sky, sea and the pink sand beach. Every effort has been made to make you comfortable, to enjoy the romance of being together, so that when you have to depart you will truly understand why this home is called 'Serenity'.
Serenity is the perfect getaway for couples. A chilled bottle of Champagne awaits your arrival. Enjoy a glass as you marvel at the beauty of the sea views from every room as you explore your 'honeymoon' retreat. There is a small open air hut near the beach which is perfect for an afternoon massage (table provided, bring your own oils) After a day at the beach, or at night, the gazebo is a perfect place to unwind or just lay back and marvel at how many stars are in
This is your secluded oasis in paradise. Swimming, snorkeling, diving, fishing, beach-combing, shelling or just bathing in the sun are only a few steps down a garden path.
You can see every star in the sky on a moonless night or read a book under the light of a full moon. You may come to believe you're on a deserted island, but, within a 15-20 minute drive you'll find fine dining, great 'island' music, the Friday night 'Fish Fry' on the beach and more. Some guests never leave the property, others explore the caves, cliffs and dozens of secluded beaches of Eleuthera.
We love to eat!! Lobster, stone crab, grouper, snapper, lionfish, lamb, goat, chicken souse, cracked conch, fritters, peas 'n' rice and, yes, even filet mignon are available on Eleuthera. If you're eating out there are a variety of Bahamian and trendy 'gourmet' restaurants within a few miles of Serenity. If you're dining in, the kitchen is equipped with everything a chef needs to prepare anything from broiled lobster to sushi, to fondue to a Gran Marnier souffle'.
Staying in? The DVD collection contains over 1000 movies from comedies and 'chick flicks' to action/adventure movies. The CD collection has everything from Mozart to Jerry Lee Lewis (sorry, no hip-hop) as well as the music channels on the direct TV satellite system. There are over 100 books ranging from Bahamian history to romance, mysteries, intrigue, etc.
Going out? Don't miss the 'Beach House' on Thursday, Fish Fry on Friday or 'Tippy's' on Saturday. Stop at the tourist office in Governors Harbour to ask about local festivals called 'Homecomings' or 'Junkanoo' at Christmas and New Years.

VACATION IN PARADISE
VACATION IN PARADISE
Serenity means calm and peaceful. This word describes everything. If you are looking for a very relaxing and peaceful vacation you don’t have to look any further. When you arrive and step into the house you can start your vacation right away. We stayed on this Island the fourth time. This house was definitely the nicest. Everything was very, very clean and nicely decorated. The only thing we had to do was getting our private stuff into the house and jumping in our bathing suites and enjoy the champagne at the Beach. Yes, the champagne was really provided. From the first minute of our arrival everything was just perfect. And the garden is like a little paradise. Very romantic and private with lots of palm trees and flowering bushes. The beach is one of the nicest here in Eleuthera. You won’t see many people. Most of the time you will have the beach for yourself. The people on this Island are the nicest we ever met. They are very friendly and helpful in any way. Our favorite restaurant is still Tippis. But there are many very good other restaurants were you can get delicious food and fresh fish. And don’t forget to stop by at the Bakery in Governors Harbor. Yami. Eleuthera is a very interesting Island with lots to do. Whether you are an explorer or just a romantic person. We got it all here. And the most important thing for all renters: The owner of Serenity helped us from the beginning of our booking. He was always very friendly and responded very quick answering our questions. He provided many helpful information, actually everything you need to know. Thank you very much Mark and Kathy for sharing your little paradise with us. We had a wonderful and relaxing vacation. Exactly what we were looking for.

Owner response: Thank you, Kerstin, we are so glad you enjoyed our home.
One of the Best Experiences we have Ever Had!
One of the Best Experiences we have Ever Had!
My wife and I have travelled throughout the Caribbean and have stayed in many resorts, hotels and some villas. I have to say that vour stay at the Serenity was the best we have ever had. The pictures on the web site do not at all do justice to the house the grounds or the beach. Selcuded, private, peacefull, inspiring are just a few words that describe Serenity and its surroundings. This was truly on of the bst vacations we have ever had. The island of Eleuthera is magical a place we will return to many times. Probably one of the safest and easy to get around islands I have been on. If you are looking for paradise the Serenity is the place to go. The owners of the villa were extermely helpful both before and during our stay answering all of our questions about where to go and what to do. Having lived on the lsland for more than 20 years they knew everything there was to know about Eleuthera. We were lucky enough to meet the owners while at the Serenity and really appreciated all that they did for us. The house itself was fully equiped with everything we needed. We never wanted for anything. Comfortable, clean and up to date the house was much more than we anticpated. I can't think of one thing that we didn't have at the house. Located just 15 minutes by car to Governors Harbor the location of the Serenity is ideal for quick trips into the town to pick up groceries or fresh fish from the local fishermen. On the way to Governors Harbor is "Island Farms" which produces annd sells it own vegetables. Twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays the farm bakes bread of all kinds. Locals and vistors line up at 9am on these days to be able to take home fresh made breads and buns. From the Sernity a 20 minute drive will take you to one of the best seaside retauarants on the island, "Tippys". If you want to see one of the best sunsets ever I recommend the "Sunset Grill" Or if you want to watch the sun go down sitting on a beach with virtually no one around, go to "Ten Bay" beach, just five minutes from the house. What amazed me the most was the beach at the Serenity, Double Bay". Walking onto the beach from the Serenity you could look up or down the beach in either direction, a mile in either direction, and rarely see another sole. It is nearly impossible to decribe what it is really like to be on the island of Eleuthera, enjoying the Serenity...you need to check his out for yourself..enjoy! Thank you M and K for everything!

After reviewing many homes on Eleuthera, we settled on Serenity on Double Bay for our 10 day vacation. We were not disappointed; in fact, it was beyond our wildest dreams! The pictures on the website do not do justice to the actual beauty of the house, the grounds and the location. We had many days where we never left the property except to walk on the gorgeous Double Bay beach. The amenities of the house were superb with a fantastic collection of DVD’s, CD’s and books. The owner was very helpful and a joy to work while finalizing the planning our trip. We highly recommend Serenity for anyone looking for a quiet, secluded romantic vacation.

The house, location, property and beach are the complete and perfect package. If anyone is looking for a great, private getaway in a great house, Serenity is the place. We have been all around the Caribbean, stayed as some great houses in secluded spots and this is now our favorite. The owner was super helpful and a pleasure to work with in setting up our trip. The location is superb. Double Bay is at a great location on the island, with some of the best beaches nearby. I highly recommend Serenity for anyone looking for a romantic retreat or family getaway.
