About Teresa Holt

Serenity House is owned by Stephen and Teresa Holt who love Diamondhead and live next door to Serenity House.

Teresa Holt purchased this house in 2008

Why Teresa Holt chose Arkansas

We love the quiet area of Diamondhead and the wonderful quirky and artsy town of Hot Springs and wanted to share the area with others. We are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful part of the world!

What makes this house unique

The quiet cove on Diamondhead provides a Serene atmosphere where cranes, geese, ducks, fox, and deer are ample. Swimming and fishing are sports that many participate in from the dock just steps from the house. Serenity House is located in Diamondhead Community where a swimming pool is available in the summer and golfing throughout the year. Diamondhead is centrally located just minutes from Hot Springs, Garvin Gardens and Malvern (I-30).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay at Serenity House these past three days. What a treasure you have in your quaint little bungalow! Our porch time was enhanced by the symphony of sound from nature's chorus including geese honking, birds chirping, and squirrells chattering. The house was warm and welcoming with little "touches" to make us feel so very comfortable. It was almost like we were visiting a good friend! May the Lord bless you and your family.

Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5

You couldn't ask for ,this house has everything you need. It is immaculate and serene indeed. Our families had a wonderful time.

I was skeptical at first when all I seen were positive reviews. I said to myself there has got to be at least one thing wrong. But I was wrong, the place is absolutely beautiful.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed here during spring break. The house was great for our kids, 4 -8. After spending the morning going somewhere we fished off the dock (never caught anything probably because I don't know how to fish!). The kitchen is small but sufficient. We cooked most meals in and had all the equipment we needed. There are three tvs but we did not turn them on. There is a convenience store about two miles away and Walmart about 15 miles near the freeway. The area was very quiet and dark at night, making for a good night sleep. We saw deer in the front yard and ducks out back. Lake Catherine park is close by with great hikiing trails. The mid America science museum is a fantastic place where we spent four hours and the kids wanted more. The diamond mining park is about 90 minutes drive and well worth a visit.

Owner's Response: I am so glad your family enjoyed themselves. I wish they could have discovered the large diamond that was uncovered a couple of days later. Come back during the summer and enjoy the fishing and swimming. Teresa
