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!

A Piece of Paradise on the River
From the moment we arrived it was a relaxing experience. The house has a great view of the river and we really enjoyed watching the birds, boats and fishermen going by. We didn't have time for it but I would have loved to take the golf cart around the community and check it out. The owners were very accommodating and attentive to our needs. They even supplied sunscreen, bug spray, etc. The house was extremely comfortable and felt like home. We will definitely be back when we can spend some more time.
We love it!!
We had a nice relaxing vacation!! So peaceful. Thanks for having us.
Mary Beth, it was our pleasure to provide a peaceful place of rest and relaxation for your vacation! I loved your stories of swinging in the early morning breeze and falling asleep on the wicker sofa outdoors. Snoring by the river is 100% permitted at Serenity! Thank you again for leaving our home in excellent condition.
Timely communication, went above and beyond to make our stay stress free!
Literally all that we needed was food, personal toiletries and our clothes. This property had everything from extra sheets air mattresses, every cooking and baking pot or pan that you would need; olive oil salt and pepper ice, the list could go on and on! All that you have to do is show up. This was our first home away experience in any set the bar very high. Questions were responses to exceptionally fast, great recommendations for things to do and restaurants nearby! We loved having breakfast out on the deck, kayaking, and relaxing in the spacious home.
The only “downside” was that the river didn’t really appear like one you would want to wade in as it appeared pretty dirty (not polluted, just actual muddy/dirt, it is moving water after all). This however didn’t stop us from enjoying the kayaks! Overal great trip with my husband and sons (one preschool, one toddler).
We are thrilled your family with small children had everything you needed for a fantastic week-long vacation! You were a delight to communicate with, from your time of booking through your departure. Our river is tidal, on a salt marsh, and therefore brackish; this means it is a mix of ocean and river water, which is the healthiest for sea life (particularly shrimp) to grow in. I am glad it was great for kayaking! Best wishes!
Serenity totally lives up to its name! We came for the beginning of spring break, and it was a wonderful getaway. The sunrises are gorgeous and we loved waking up to bird songs and crickets chirping. It offers the perfect mix of R & R, like reading in the hammock or playing board games on the deck with things like paddling, fishing and cycling. (True confession--our boys also loved the Apple TV:) Amy was a fantastic host that got right back to me when I wanted a restaurant recommendation. (Their first choice was closed, and she suggested Skippers in Darien--worth every minute of drive:) We can't wait to come back and stay longer!
Lauren, I am so glad your family had a fantastic spring-break getaway! I, too, love reading in the hammock or playing games on the deck while listening to the birds and water lap in the river! I am sure future guests appreciate the recommendation of Skippers seafood in Darien. Please do return with your delightful family!
Beautiful and quiet hidden get away
Great spot if your looking for a peaceful romantic get away. Amy was an excellent host. Between the communications and providing all we needed.
Dawn, I am overjoyed that Serenity House provided the peaceful & romantic hideaway that you were seeking! Even the dolphin sometimes put on a show for lovers at Serenity. You were great to communicate with. Please return!
