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.

Awesome Family Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week long stay at the Serenity House. The house was great! It was perfect for our kids (12, 9, 2.5), who enjoyed playing in the water, jumping off the dock, and hanging out on floats. It is tucked away in a little cove, which is great because there was no boat traffic to have to worry about. The water is not too deep in the cove, fluctuating from about 5ft to 3ft, which we loved! We fished off of the dock and caught a couple of small fish then returned them to the water. The back deck was wonderful to be able to see the kids on the dock fishing, while we were grilling dinner. There is a patio Table with an umbrella and chairs to have dinner outside overlooking the lake. The beds were very comfortable. It was great having a washer and dryer! My husband also took the kids to the pool, and they had a great time meeting other kids and playing pool games. There was so much to do in the area that we didn't have enough time to get to everything. Here are the things we did:

Alligator petting zoo, Funtrackers go karts and arcade, downtown Hot Springs, Ron Coleman's quartz mine where you dig for your own stones and get to keep the ones you find and can also zip line over the quartz mine, horseback riding at the lake Catherine state park right down the road, rented a boat at the marina at the lake Catherine state park, swimming hole with waterfall at the lake Catherine state park (that was a big hit for the kids), and on a day when it rained we drove to the Mid-America Science Museum. There is so much more to do that we would LOVE to go back. The air conditioner broke down (which wasn't the owners fault) on the Friday evening around 9:30 after we arrived and they came RIGHT over to try and fix it. When they couldn't fix it themselves they brought over a bunch of fans. They tried very hard to get it fixed Saturday morning bright and early but were told that it had to be replaced. They tried their hardest to have someone come on Sunday and when that wasn't doable they offered to help find us another place to stay and refund our money. We loved where we were and thought one more day wouldn't kill us with no air conditioning. On Monday the a/c unit was replaced and the owners refunded us for the time we went without a/c. They were VERY fair and nice to deal with, which you don't always find! The house is very clean and has everything you need. We would definitely stay here again!!!

Fourth of July Lake Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I've visited this area many times and this was one of my favorite places to stay! It's right on the lake, in a nice little cove that's good for swimming and relaxing. The house is the perfect size for a family and has everything you need. I would definitely stay again.
