---> 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 Mara Vista

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.

                                                  Absolutely wonderful property.

                                                  Marcia S.

                                                  Beautiful views, plenty of room (we had 8) with upgrades, very nice kitchen & all instructions for arrival and leaving easy to follow. We would do again in a heart beat.

                                                  Beautiful and a wonderful stay for time on the Cape and at the Vineyard!

                                                  karin r.

                                                  Serenity was spotless upon our arrival and the owner was very helpful as we had never visited the area before! The rooms were enormous and we had more than enough room to spread out and enjoy our time together! The kitchen was one of the most well equipped we have seen using VRBO and even though we were unable to use many of the "extras" that were there waiting for us, it was wonderful to see them there...kites, games, croquet, sand toys, boogie boards and beach chairs! We hope to return as soon as we can! Thank you!

                                                  Great location. Kitchen well organized. Sunroom is bright and cheery . No back patio but side yard on quiet street.

                                                  Great house!

                                                  Daniel K.

                                                  We had a wonderful experience here. The house is set up perfectly--very user friendly, clean, spacious, etc. The location is excellent and the owner is extremely friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend this house to anyone!

                                                  Just perfect

                                                  Robert M.Mansfield, MA

                                                  Our 2 weeks at serenity were just perfect. With lots of family coming and going we need a house that has plenty of room to accommodate. The ability to walk across the street from the beach is the best! The neighbors on both sides are super friendly and the homeowners could not be more gracious. This is such a wonderful vacation rental so do yourself a favor and experience it.

                                                  love, love, loved it!!!!!!!

                                                  Fran B.

                                                  Another awesome year at Serenity. The owners are wonderful to work with. They got back to us immediately when we had questions.
