About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths on the Crescent, Martinique on the Gulf, Close to Beach

Serenata Beach offers just about everything you’re looking for in a vacation rental. The spacious two-story French-Caribbean house is located in picturesque Martinique on the Gulf between Gulf Shores and Fort Morgan. Located right beside the undeveloped, secluded 4,200 acre Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, Serenata Beach boasts easy beach access to beautiful beaches without the crowds yet still close to amenities. You are also steps away from the private Gulf-front pool, fitness center, and tennis courts.

Serenata Beach has 3 bedrooms/3 bathrooms and sleeps 8-10 people. The main floor is a completely open floor-plan with a fully stocked kitchen, dining area, living room, and a bedroom. There is also a screened porch and private grill on the back side of the house. The upper floor has 2 spacious bedrooms. Enjoy the gulf view from the master balcony or relax in the large tub in the master bath.

Regardless of your ideal vacation, Serenata Beach fits right in. Lounge on the beach, surf the free Wi-Fi, or take a walk through Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. Make the quick drive into Gulf Shores for shopping and local seafood. Or maybe you want to take it easy after supper and just watch movies. You can do it all at Serenata Beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a wonderful time! The house was a blessing and joy to stay in! The first part of the week we had most of the place to ourselves. Our son-in-law loved the golf cart! We hate to leave your place here, but home is calling. Your every little detail to needs is awesome! Loved it here.

Perfect Family Location

  • 5 of 5

We took our youngest son and his family for a week's stay. House was nicely decorated and ideally located - just steps from the beach. The owner was extremely helpful and timely with answering questions and providing information to make the stay pleasant. Having a golf cart was a plus in moving around the resort. Would highly recommend and we plan to return sometime in the future. Phil S

Tranquil and Turquoise

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate, spacious and comfortable and the owner’s responsiveness was immediate and sincere. There were just the two of us but the house had plenty of room for 6 or more with a well-supplied kitchen, screened in back porch and second story balcony. We loved the uncrowded, white sand beach with shimmering turquoise water, gentle breeze and perfect temperature. Wish we could have stayed longer! The surrounding area was non-touristy and quiet. We would highly recommend!

Lovely Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Serenata Beach House for 3 weeks and it felt like home away from home. We arrived to find a very clean home with comfortable furnishings and beautiful surroundings. Martinique on the Gulf is as beautiful as it looks in the pictures. It was so nice to have an indoor pool on the cooler days, yet when it was sunny you could find a nice lounge chair at both outdoor pools. Beach access was wonderful--there are 2 boardwalks to the beach just a 2 minute walk from the house. We enjoyed many walks on the beach and met so many nice people--it is common to see people gather on the boardwalks to watch the beautiful sunsets. We had a great kitchen to cook in and a few nights we cooked local fish and shrimp from a seafood shop just a few miles drive on Fort Morgan Road. If you don't want to cook, they will steam it for you! Chuck was a great host and checked in with us to make sure all was going well. He was easy to work with to make reservations and really cares about his house and his renters. We loved that Martinique feels quiet and secluded, but if you want to go to town you are there in 15-20 minutes and there are plenty of places to eat and shop. We also went to the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola which is fascinating. We look forward to staying at Serenata Beach House again and would highly recommend it to others--you won't be disappointed!
