  • Awesome week at Serenity by the Sea!

    "I have rented several homes in the Keys and this is my favorite! We had so much fun swimming, snorkeling, and fishing off the dock. We saw lots of blue crabs, sea snails, stingrays, starfish, small barracuda, and on our last night we had a visit from a manatee! We fished from the dock in the evenings until about midnight each night. The dock itself has lights, (no lights in the water) but you will want to bring a flashlight or two if you intend to fish at night. We put a chum bag in the water at the end of the dock and we were catching fish in no time. We caught grunts, small snappers, a small barracuda, and two sharks!! Catching the sharks was definitely the highlight of the trip! Diane stopped by on the day we arrived to deliver a tandem kayak which was an amazing surprise! We all took turns throughout the week paddling around in the bay. There are plenty of life vests in the storage shed under the house. There is also a nice canoe and a big hot tub, but I was having so much fun fishing and snorkeling that I never got around to trying those out. The house itself is cozy and comfortable and really feels like home, but the views of the bay and the sunsets are truly magnificent. You can look out the windows from the living room and see the entire bay, and watch the kids playing on the dock as the sun sets. I got some incredible pictures of the sun setting over the bay. We are a family of 7 and there was plenty of room for everyone. The boys slept in the loft (there are three twin beds and a pull out twin trundle) and the girls shared the queen bed down below. There is a steep set of stairs (almost a ladder) to get up to the loft, but it worked perfectly for our boys. There is also a master bedroom with a king sized bed, plenty of closet space and a desk area. The kitchen had everything we needed and the refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher seemed to be brand new. There was a gas grill that we used one night to grill hot dogs and hamburgers. The wifi worked great even outside the house, but our cell phones didn't get very good service. I loved the sense of seclusion at Serenity by the Sea! You can see the other houses when you are on the dock, but it was very quiet during our stay, except for July 4th - when the neighbors set off some great fireworks. Diane was a pleasure to work with and promptly returned my calls, emails, and texts anytime I had a question. Thank you Diane!"

  • Relaxing

    "Knockout view day and night, quality furnishings and interesting decor (no sign of "wear & tear"), and a 9' deep pool. Anything you may need is there, including binoculars to observe birds or action on the ocean and a blender to whip up fresh juice every morning. Private and safe, no cars, roads, or other structures to be seen. We never closed the drapes. An absolute natural delight!"

  • Relaxing, beautiful, and friendly

    "We had a great time on vacation! Your condo has a spectacular view of the ocean. I really enjoyed watching the beautiful sunrise and sunset every day. We saw dolphins feeding in the early morning. It's so peaceful and relaxing just watching the ocean and various birds and fish. Your condo was exactly as described. We were impressed at how clean it was and comfortable. Every day was around 85-90 degrees and perfect weather. Everything you could ever want is within a short distance away and driving was not a problem. People were friendly and we couldn't have asked for a better vacation spot--thank you!"

  • Great house

    "I stayed out the house with some friends and our moms for a long weekend. We had a fabulous time! The house is a great size for the amount of people we had (8), and the pool was wonderful. The only things that would be better are toilet paper/paper towels/laundry detergent (I hate having to go buy those things on vacation, I rather the house cost a little more and they be included). There is a grocery store right over the bridge, which is very convenient, and having a dock at the house was awesome! We rented a boat from the marina just down the block and was able to drive it to the house to pick the rest of our crew up. There is a large cooler and an ice machine in the garage, which is amazing!"
