About the property

Fabulous walk-to-beach location with ocean and salt water pond views!

---> Click 'More Details' below to expand the full write-up <--

This updated, old-world home has the charm of yesterday's beach cottage with today's desired features, including new (2015) fully-stocked, eat-in kitchen with dishwasher/range/microwave, generous sized rooms with high ceilings, air-conditioned bedrooms with new mattresses and linens (2014), washer/dryer, gas fireplace, gas grill, covered porch, sunroom, outdoor shower, and roofdeck.

An ideal location just steps to Bristol and Falmouth Heights Beaches make this the perfect home for family and friends. With four bedrooms and two baths, Serenity comfortably sleeps 9, and the sunroom, roofdeck, porch and large living room give you places for togetherness and places to quietly curl up with a book.

Did we mention the roofdeck? The views? The cool ocean breezes? The sandy beach? The warm water of Nantucket Sound?

...and all but a few windows have an ocean or salt pond view.

- Sit on the roofdeck and enjoy a glass of wine while surveying views of Nantucket Sound out to Oak Bluffs...

- Watch Falmouth's July 4th fireworks from the roof deck or the sunroom -- the fireworks barge moors just off Bristol Beach...

- Sleep on NEW mattresses and linens with the windows open to ocean breezes...

- Walk to Bristol and Falmouth Heights Beaches, so close you'll make the trip many times a day, as the mood hits, as the sun rises and sets...

- Stroll to the Falmouth Road Race finish line and watch the runners finish, or, if you've run the race, stroll back to our house...

- Stroll to the British Beer Company...

- Or just relax...

This is a great house for families and friends.

About Susan Paradiso

My sister and I own Serenity. This house has been in our family since the mid-70s. We inherited it from our Uncle in 2014, and did a full remodel, updating it while keeping it true to its roots with period appropriate fixtures and details.

Susan Paradiso purchased this house in 1975

Why Susan Paradiso chose Falmouth

We love this house: the layout, the high ceilings, the open feel. Yet there are still quiet corners to curl up and read a book, or just have some time alone. This house 'lives' much bigger than its square footage.

Its location in Falmouth Heights is ideal: opposite the beach, a short walk to the Falmouth Road Race finish line, and an outstanding view of the July 4th fireworks.

And it's in a friendly neighborhood, a short distance from town.

We think you'll love this house as much as we do.

Location, features and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression of this rental was, what a great location. It is less than a block from the beach but not on the busy side of the street so it was perfect. Then going inside we were pleased with the decor and updates. The bedrooms were nice sizes and there was plenty of room for our whole family to be in one room at a time, and spread out as well. The kitchen had everything we needed. We had such a great multi-generational family vacation with ages ranging from 1 year to 70 years and we couldn't be more happy with our stay. To top it all off the owners were very responsive and accommodating with all our questions and needs. If we plan another vacation like this we will definitely be coming back!!

Best vacation home for location and cost

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in many homes but Serenity is my favorite. You can't beat the location and the views. The sunroom and upper deck are perfect places to relax. Susan was a great host

Best value, great home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Serenity. Clean, updated home within 5 minute walk to Bristol and Falmouth Heights Beaches. Layout accommodated my family; plenty of space inside and out to spread out. Daily walks and bike rides, quick stop back to house from beach for lunch and an indoor/outdoor shower to keep the sand out. Awesome porch off upstairs master looks out over Vineyard Sound. House has views of Little Pond as well giving a waterfront feel to the property. Hosts were very easy to work with and the neighbors next door were very friendly. Bristol Beach more rocky but less busy than Heights beach.

Super place, loved it.

  • 5 of 5

Location was just about as good as you could have without being right on the beach. Lovely house which accommodated 7 friends quite well. Looking forward to coming back next summer when the weather will be better.

Excellent rental experience

  • 5 of 5

The house, and its location, were superb for our family of 7. Kitchen was well stocked, and everything was just where you expect it would be! Beds were very comfortable.

Above all, communication with the owner was always very timely. When a hurricane threatened to impact our vacation, the owner proactively reached out to us to outline our options.

I would do this again in a heartbeat.
