Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7-10)

In the same grand tradition as “Serenity Now” (Listing VRBO 284861), Serenity Too is “comfy and cozy” and maintained to the highest degree of quality care and cleanliness, all for the pleasure of our many guests who come to enjoy a relaxing, carefree beach vacation without stress or rental nightmares.

Located on the beachside of Via De Luna Drive, it is centrally located to all the island activities (3 blocks), and just 300 feet from the crest of the dunes with direct beach access.

The cottage features a large living/dining room area, fully equipped kitchen, three bedrooms, back deck, plenty of off-street parking spaces, both in the front and on the side of the cottage, and storage shed for all your beach stuff.

There is one bathroom, well appointed with shower, bath and bunches of fluffy towels, and the added benefit of an outside shower with both hot and cold running water, enclosed and totally private for wonderful nights of bathing under the stars after a hard day at the beach!

You will love the bright and airy color scheme to the whole house, allowing plenty of sunshine to brighten your days, and the tiled floors with throw rugs makes cleaning and picking up quick, easy, and effortless… after all, you are on vacation!

Two of the three bedrooms feature queen size beds, plenty of drawer and closet space, ample supply of linens, extra pillows, and blankets.

The third bedroom is a “kid’s” dream, featuring stacked bunk beds, a TV for when YOU need some quiet time, and a deadbolt lock on the back door to the outside for security.

The living room has a queen size couch that folds down to an extra queen size bed, and there is a large color TV, DVD player, and wireless internet for those who just cannot resist checking in with the office!

The dining room is spacious, with comfortable seating for six (more if you want) and, for quick afternoon naps, or to host friends overnight at the last minute. You will love the oversized, upholstered chaise lounge sitting off to the side.

The back deck has a wooden picnic table with benches and shade umbrella, as well as a low-slung, square wooden coffee table with Adirondack chairs and shade umbrella for evening cocktails! And yes… there is a gas barbecue grill. So bring your fishing rods to catch “the big one” in the surf, or just be sure to have some back-up hamburgers in the freezer!

We really try to make your stay as comfortable as possible, so the extra beach chairs in the storage shed are a great plus feature, as well as the two beach cruiser bikes for zipping up to the shops or taking a leisurely ride down the beach road.

For those who have toddlers or bring their "doggie" friends, the entire back patio is fenced in... how cool is that?

All in all, you are going to love your stay with us, and be glad that you found, “Serenity Too”… the beach cottage that lets you unwind, relax, and forget about the outside world… just for a little while, anyway!

About The Owner

“Serenity Too” has successfully survived TWO major hurricanes, Hurricane Opal in 1995, and Hurricane Ivan in 2005, at which time the cottage was completely renovated by the previous owners.

We had the opportunity to purchase the cottage last winter (2010) and immediately refurbished, painted, added a dishwasher, and brought the cottage up to the same high standards of cleanliness and quality comfort as our first property, “Serenity Now” (VRBO 294861) located just a stones throw away.

We know you will enjoy your time with us… If you are looking for a vacation cottage that is uncomplicated, undemanding, simple to housekeep, warm and comfy, easy to get to the beach, and most of all, fun to enjoy, then “Serenity Too” is for you!

There is somehting magical about walking the crystal white sands, taking dips on the simmering surf, showering outside under evening starlit skies, biking around the island, or chillin' out on the decks.

Be sure to write your thoughts in our guest book, and please, come back for many more visits.

Cheers,

The Stuart Family

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Pensacola Beach

Pensacola Beach is truly the "BEST KEPT SECRET" of the whole Gulf Coast. Unlike many other areas along the coast, it is NOT overbuilt with condos that restrct access to the beautiful white sands and crystal clear water. The island offers great food, music venues, the gulf coasts longest fishing pier, and friendly, friendly people. Prices are still reasonable, and you can literally "park your car" and never leave the island during your whole stay.

What makes this house unique

We can only tell you why WE love our two cottages, "Serenity Too" and "Serenity Now" (VRBO 284861... Suntans, realaxation, great fun with thekids and grandchildren, storytelling on the decks after long lazy days on the beach, bike riding, walking the dogs, catamarans in the bay, parasailing, fishing off the piers, seafood at PegLeg Petes, or Flounders, or Crabs, picking up fresh seafood at Joe Patti's in town, curling up with a great book, playing Skip-Bo, Boggle, Texas Hold 'Em, or finishiung a 1,000 piece puzzle way past bedtime hours! Whatever reason you might have for getting away from the hussle and bustle of work and all those chores at home, you will find "your" reason for loving our cottages, and spending time at the beach... and there is no doubt, you will want to come back many more times!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We couldn't have asked for anything more. The cottage was convenient to everything, short walks to the beach, shops, eating, etc.

The cottage is adorable, such a beach feel... ready to live here year round! The weather was perfect, beach beautiful - and memories to take with us for a lifetime. You guys thought of everything for a stay at the beach. We'll be back!

Fantastic location and very friendly

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I we stayed at the serenity to for Memorial Day weekend in May 2015. The location of the home is absolutely perfect. Mr Lawrence was an absolute sweetheart and was very easy to work with. The home itself is absolutely adorable and I definitely plan on staying there again.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Serenity Too for one week starting August 8, 2015. We had a wonderful time. The home was VERY clean, well appointed, and offered us everything we needed to have a phenomenal family time together. The fenced in yard was perfect for my sister's little dog. The kitchen was well equipped, and we never lacked anything. The ice maker in the freezer was a nice touch. We LOVED the washer/dryer and made full use of it. It was very hot most of our week, and the air conditioning kept us nice and cool after coming back from the beach. We all loved the outdoor shower. Try it! You won't regret it. My brother and I love to have an evening cocktail and the house was in walking distance to local pubs. The beach is so close! My mother suffers from arthritis, but never had a problem getting to and from the white sands. We had a wonderful time and all of us already miss the Serenity Too. I highly recommend this house, especially to those traveling on a budget.

Cozy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

My family of seven (3 grown kids and a couple of their spouses) and a dog stayed at Serenity Too for several days for Thanksgiving 2014. I chose this property for it's close proximity to the beach and the dog fence. It's not the fanciest house in the area but was comfortable and all that we needed. The bedrooms are small but with very comfortable beds, the living room is cozy but we weren't crowded and the kitchen had all we needed to prepare most of our meals including a full Thanksgiving feast. It's only a block and a half from the beach and a short drive to stores and restaurants. I'd recommend Serenity Too to anyone who isn't set on a fancy beach house but content with a normal, average house. We'd go back.

Wonderful family beach home

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good time. Loved the convenience of outdoor heated shower!!!!also loved the deck with fenced in yard for the kids. The house was as comfortable as being at home:) we also got to meet and visit with Lawrence while there. We have already booked again for next summer!!!!rent a Yolo board while your at the beach to try. Also, loved all the eating facilities, and music at bamboo willies! (Kids loved the band everynight) lots to do in pensacola beach. Rent a golf cart to save dirtying your vehicle. Buggy worx in pensacola delivers and picks them back up!!!!! This was a highlight for kiddos. We drove it everywhere !!! Would recommend this home and location!!!

Enjoyed Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Serenity Too this past week. The deck and grilling area was great and the back yard is completely fenced in which makes it easy to let the kids and pets out to play without too much worrying.

The house was clean and nicely furnished when we arrived. The kids loved the popsicles that were in the freezer when we arrived. The shed does have many extras; however we found that only one bicycle was in working order so we couldn't take a bike ride. The floats and sand toys were great to take to the beach with us.

We enjoyed the openness of the kitchen, living room and dining room. The bathroom is small but functional and you really don't need much more. The outdoor shower was great when returning from the beach so that we didn't track as much sand into the house. The tile floors clean up easy which is great with kids and pets.

The only drawback we found is that the back door that leads to the deck and backyard is in the "kids" room. If adults want to spend time outside while the kids are sleeping you either have to try to quietly walk through or get them to fall asleep in a different room and move them later.

Overall our stay was excellent and Laurence was great to deal with. He is very customer oriented and I would definitely recommend this house to others and rent again.

Thanks for a great vacation!

Wonderful stay at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is very cute and has plenty of room. It is within walking distance to the shops, restaurants, pier, etc. The back deck and outside shower are great. Also, it is very nice to have a washer and dryer. Just a short walk to the beach. There were plenty of extras in the shed - bikes, chairs, floats, etc. We had a great time and will be back next year. Thanks!
