About the property

5 Bedrooms 4 Baths House (Beds for 16+) plus 2 couches & lots of floor space

JUST REPLACED FURNITURE so all is new. It was rented by the year & the people had their own furniture. But when renters moved we decided to go back to VRBO so we furnished new in February, 2018. This is a beautiful five bedroom, four bath home (3,000 square feet) in a quiet gated golf community. It has a large front porch with a swing and rocking chairs and a large back porch with benches, table and chairs, and a gas grill. It overlooks Lake Catherine (not on the lake but overlooks). Deer constantly roam the area and pass right under the deck or in the yard.

The home has three floors connected with a spiral staircase. Upstairs are two bedrooms with 1 queen bed in each with a bathroom beside.The main level has the kitchen, bathroom, living-room, fireplace, huge living area, and the master bedroom with a queen-sized bed & walk in closet & bathroom. The living room & dining room opens out to the huge back deck with grill. The lower level has a storage room, laundry room, and 2 bedrooms (1 large 1 small) with a his and her bathroom. One bedroom has 3 bunk beds with twins over double = 9 sleepers (mainly for kids). The beds face a sliding glass door which looks out to Lake Catherine.The other has a twin bed). The downstairs is usually for all the kids to gather. The home has free Wi-Fi.

The house is fully-furnished with pots and pans, dishes, linens, paper towels etc.... Great for family reunions or church groups.

About Kenneth Cooper

I'm a retired Air Traffic Controller & Carol is retired from Continental Airlines. We like to travel. We use this home for our big family get-togethers every other Christmas or Thanksgiving & some Summer get-togethers.

Kenneth Cooper purchased this house in 1998

Why Kenneth Cooper chose Hot Springs

Diamondhead is such a peaceful, quiet area. We love to have family reunions. And this house is large enough to handle our large family. We watch deer roam the grounds or go to waterparks, fishing, skiing or hiking to the waterfall. We like to rent a pontoon boat & take a family on a boat ride around the lake (pulling kids on a float behind) Serendipity House is a great place to make memories with our grandkids.

Perfect for a large group and what a view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Serendipity! 10 family members came from 4 different cities and we all felt right at home. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and the beds were comfortable, 4 baths cut down on lines at bath time. The kids loved the neighborhood pool. We highly recommend Serendipity!

Serendipity met all our needs for the weekend together with friends and the owner was very helpful answering my questions before and during our stay! The place was very well organized and we all enjoyed the large deck overlooking the lake. While there were extra linens, I do wish there had been a few extra towels for showering. Thank you for opening your home to us!

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I wish you would have called about towels. We leave 4 in each bathroom & some under the sink cabinet. Then in the washroom above the washer/dryer we keep extras. There are 32 towels total in the house. Just e-mail or call if you can't find something.

Serendipity House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Serendipity House! There was plenty of room for our family, and we especially liked having the extra bathrooms. The view is gorgeous from the deck! We loved having the grill for doing some outdoor cooking too. Our grand children sure enjoyed the porch swing and playing at the neigborhood park. I have to say the location is awesome: Lake Catherine State Park is simply beautiful! And it was an easy drive into Hot Springs, where there is much to do and see. I would definitely plan to stay here again when we are in the area. Thanks so much, we had a wonderful spring break!
