Date of stay 8/15 - 8/19, 2012: I write this review as I sit on the large deck overlooking the lake @ Serenity House. AHH....PEACEFUL! Our dog is asleep on her bed on the deck. She loves to watch for squirrels & listen to all the sounds of nature....as does our entire family! The rainshower this morning cancelled a few of our outdoor plans, but has made for a relaxing day! This quaint house is the perfect size for the 3 of us, plus mini schnauzer, so 4. It is close to the marina at the state park where we rented a boat yesterday & intended on horseback riding today had the rain not cancelled it. It is also close to Garvan Gardens. Perfect location for us! The house is neat, nicely decorated & has a washer/dryer (a must for me!). The view of the lake and the tall trees from the back deck is beautiful. Because this house is located in Diamondhead Community, there is access to a community pool. The private dock is awesome! My husband & daughter, together, caught around 15 fish (one being a catfish) off of it. In fact, they were both fishing @ the dock within 15 minutes of our arrival! My daughter enjoyed jumping off the dock into the lake which is less than 5 foot deep around the dock. The owners live right next door if we need anything. They are very friendly, but not intrusive & totally respect our privacy. I really enjoy the fact that they are animal lovers too! Just so people with walking limitations are aware, the path to the lake & dock is on a bit of an incline, as well as the front yard---if mobility issues are a concern. Not a problem for us, however, and once in the driveway the porch is level with only one step. Easy for anyone to access the front porch & back deck. This house, complete with lakeview from deck, living room, kitchen & master bedroom, is PERFECT for everyone. Last but not least, my husband wanted me to mention the comfy beds & bedding! Thanks for the relaxing visit. We don't want to leave tomorrow! Hope to see u next year!! ------The Clark Family, Arlington, TEXAS :-)
