Our family goes back to this villa year after year because we love it so much. All of us, adults and young kids alike, agree that this is our most favorite vacation spot, hands down. One of the most amazing parts is the lovely private beach which is just a few minutes walk from the villa down a well-crafted stone path. The views and sunsets are unforgettably beautiful. You can jump off rocks into the warm, clear water and see lots of colorful fish. Even sea turtles. And the house is so open and spacious, with lovely indoor and outdoor spaces.The world-famous Megan’s Beach is barely a five-minute drive away (or if you’re an active type you can even water walk there from the house, as some of our family members do). The many fun activities in the town of Charlotte Amalie are nearby as well, including high-end, delicious restaurants. We always mix it up, with lots of time at the villa, enjoying all the beauty, relaxation and fun to be had there, with time in town as well, visiting Coral World, the Butterfly Farm, browsing the shops at Yacht Haven, and so on. We highly recommend a week or more at Villa Serena! Your mind, body and soul will be very grateful indeed. But don’t be surprised if, like us, you find yourself wanting to make the trip an annual tradition. Oh and the host and house manager are also very friendly and helpful, offering lots of local knowledge and taking care of any little maintenance concerns right away. I would give the listing 6 stars if I could. It's that fantastic!
