About Amy McNeely

We are a fun-loving family with Georgia roots and a love of her coast. We recently wed in this area, and now we love sharing our "home-away-from-home" here! With numerous waterways, abundant nature, a variety of fishing & boating docks in this quaint community, fresh seafood galore, and nearby barrier islands, we believe you will find the Serenity you seek. We look forward to meeting you and sharing our slice of heaven with you!

Love, love, love!!

Had the best time at Serenity. Owner was very gracious and thoughtful for our stay. We came for a short spring break before a softball tourney in nearby Savannah. Was able to take the kayaks 1 day and relax the rest. The views are gorgeous and home is away from the hustle and bustle of Savannah. Next time we come to town, we’ll be hoping to stay here again!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

First want to say how quick Amy was at getting back to us when we inquired about booking her place for a last minute trip, and I mean last minute! It helped ease the stress:) This was a great place to spend some quality time with our soldier before he leaves for South Korea! The goal was to make home cook meals and enjoy each other’s company, and that’s exactly what we did! The kitchen was well stocked, the washer and dryer came in handy so we could send our boy back with everything clean, the beds were comfortable and the boys used the golf cart to go fishing! All the amenities we needed and then some! Our only regret is that our visit didn’t fall on warm weather so we could enjoy the outdoors! Thank you for making it a truly “home away from home” for us!

Owner's Response: Dear Konrads, I am so glad Serenity was a well-equipped "home away from you" for your family to spend time with your soldier! "Quality time" is one of the frequent feedbacks we get from guests, and are happy Serenity provides it! Thanks again to your son and your family for service to our country. We welcome you back during warmer weather (snow in South GA was unprecedented this January; thankfully, it was 70 degrees yesterday)!

One more time!

  • 5 of 5

We spent another week relaxing in the sun at serenity. The autumn is just as nice as the spring... just some different colors in the scenery. We want to thank Amy again for providing us with a quiet, clean, relaxing holiday. I am sure we will be back in the spring.

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We went to stay there to attend a wedding. The house was so clean and beautiful. We enjoyed the outdoor space and the dock. The sunset was amazing! Amy was so welcoming and we will go back if we go down to the coast again. Thanks Amy for sharing your home.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is so comfortable. The view is a postcard--birds, dolphins and fish. The owners go out of their way to make sure your stay is relaxing and trouble free. We are talking about our next trip already.
