About Serenity

We are European and we discovered the Bahamas by boat. The first time was July 2008 and we cruised all around the Bahamas three times a year till 2012. We love the Bahamas which offers such clear water and great temperature. We have been amazed by all the features that Elbow cay and Hope Town could offer. Nice restaurants, beautiful beaches, activities such as scuba diving, fishing guides and so on. The village and its great colorful houses without forgetting its famous lighthouse convinced us to settle down here in 2013.

Serenity purchased this house in 2013

Why Serenity chose Hope Town

We fall in love with Serenity which sits on a private peninsula at 10 minutes drive by golf cart from Hope Town, in the White Sound! No neighbors except in the back where the road reaches the house, but only sea and stunning view all around the house with spectacular sunraises and sunsets.

The house is luxuriously furnished with a superb modern open kitchen overlooking two large lounges. All details of the layout of the kitchen convinces the lady of the most demanding home. All the details are there, from microwave to dishwasher without forgetting a refined dishes and table service available to guests. Furniture has been chosen with taste and refined and the house has its personalized decoration. As soon as you step in Serenity, you feel home! Serenity is constantly renovated, extremely well maintained and offers anyone its place. Nice huge dock which can welcome boats together with its opened gazebo and swimming dock. An external closed gazebo is at disposal for those like privacy to read and so on. We hope you will be as convinced as us, the first time we saw Serenity! The spell of Serenity is something that you won’t find anywhere else.

Serenity is beautiful all day long.Lush gardens and winding walks. The most romantic spot on the island.

What makes this house unique

Bone fishing area.


Complete privacy as Serenity is on a peninsula.

Most amazing sunsets.

Nice restaurants closed to it.

Very protected area.

Come over and see that we have told you only the truth :-) !

Beautiful house and Great Location

We enjoyed all the amenities and the beautiful vistas of this gorgeous home. The homeowner was accommodating and responsive making our stay that much more enjoyable. There are countless settings to unwind on the property and each is special in its own way. We highly recommend this property.

Exceptional... Stunning... WOW!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and four teenage children came to stay at Serenity during our Spring Break week. From the moment we arrived we were blown away. From the open living area where we all gathered to watch movies after a day of boating and exploring to the breathtaking views from just about every view point in the house- we fell in love. Within the first day I was begging my husband could we buy this house as our dream house.

The pictures, while gorgeous, do not do justice to Serenity's beauty. There are unique special places throughout the property; like the pergola area where you can sit and have your morning coffee; the self contained reading (chill out) room that affords sunset views; the spacious pool deck and refreshing pool, the grill station adjacent to the pool, the dock space with its own jump off spot with ladder, and my favorite- the patio area that sits at the southwest portion of the property providing an unobstructed view of the magnificent sunset.

The rooms were all cozy. The kitchen was nicer than the one at my own home...

All in all, we left feeling refreshed. Happy. And Serene.

Thank you thank you thank you Ariane for making dreams come true. We will definitely be back!

The Location is by far stellar. The house absolutely organized for maximum comfort! The kitchen is Well appointed-with has sharp knives, first class ultra quiet dishwasher, great fridge and freezer, abundant fresh water.

There is a glass walled reading room with its own air conditioners positioned on an observatory deck. This structure rests on the absolute tip of the pensula leading into the shallows of White sound/Sea of Abaco. The deck communicates 270° around the house providing shoeless access to the pool, outdoor shower, pool house and dock. Beauty, comfort, ease of use

A week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed many times on Elbow Cay and the surrounding area over the last 40 years, but we are now forever spoiled. Serenity is as advertised, a home where everything you could possibly need or want has been provided, and a place you will not soon forget. The grounds are spectacular, with well thought out walkways which wind efficiently through the foliage. Flowers, bushes and trees lend the genuine feel of an arboretum, and every plant is perfectly maintained. We had a special appreciation for the stepped down dock design, which allows easy access into and out of the boat, as well as the surrounding water of White Sound for snorkeling. Every detail has been well thought out; even a carport for the golf cart just outside the front door. One day the electrical power for the whole island was out for about 7 hours, but the automatic generator started instantly, and we were not affected at all ! The interior spaces of Serenity are elegant and spacious, comfortable and welcoming....after most of our days spent boating and joyriding, the outdoor showers allowed us to rinse off the salt water before lounging in the lovely pool, where we found ourselves most every afternoon before our dinners. The Abaco Inn was by far our favorite, and it is less than five minutes by cart... if it has been some time since your last visit you will be pleasantly surprised by the remodeling and upgrades. The location of Serenity, situated on the tip of the peninsula, provides the ultimate in spectacular views, and is the quietest place I could imagine. To sum it all up, let me just say that we will be back. Count on it !

Car: recommended

Serenity is located on a peninsula in the White Sound at 10 minutes drive from Hope Town. The area is peacefull and very quiet surounded by stunning ocean view. Abaco Inn is a 3-5 minutes golf cart drive as well as Sea Spray Marina and FireFly resort. The 3 places offer delicious meals.
