About Patty DiGregorio

We come from a family of hard workers. Farming, gas station ownership, real estate people, landlords, carpenters, owners of home rentals. I (Patty) was a stewardess for United Airlines, a real estate agent and a full time mother and wife. My husband Phil was a pastor for 25 years.

After selling a small rental and home we decided to build a beach rental, something we could enjoy and also rent out.

We put our hearts and hard work into it. Our son, a general carpenter at that time did the building.

Our family has a special love of atmosphere. I attended a class by a lighting store on how to use light and dimmers to add to any atmosphere . We incorporated what I learned and did the best we could to add to the general feeling of space, peace and total relaxation.

At Serenity, all 5 bedrooms are unique. Dim the lights, look around at the details.

Even noise is important to me. We do not have an ice maker in the freezer. The noise of the ice maker is JUST not worth the ice. We have ice cube trays available.

Patty DiGregorio purchased this house in 2008

Why Patty DiGregorio chose Pacific City

Nantucket Shores is without question the most beautiful gated community in Pacific City. We are close to two beaches you can walk to in about 10 minutes. You can drive

to the Pelican Brew Pub and beach, just 2 miles down the road.

No home in Nantucket Shores has sold for less $500,000 and many are worth much more.

What makes this house unique

Sit on the decks at night and look at the stars. Listen to the many birds, during the day. Walk and enjoy nature, you may see deer. Listen to the quiet.

Drive to Lincoln City or Tillamook just 30 minutes away. Do all the city things, the discount mall, gambling, Tillamook Cheese Factory, fish, watch the surfers enjoy the beaches and come back to peace and quiet.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for choosing to stay at Serenity again with your group of friends. I work hard to provide a peaceful happy home. So glad you enjoyed your time even in stormy weather.

Patty from Serenity

A great place to spend Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 (adults and kids) spent thanksgiving weekend at this home. Our stay was fantastic! The kitchen had everything we needed, there was plenty of room for everyone as the house is very spacious, and the closest beach was a 2 minute drive and was absolutely lovely. Patty was extremely pleasant and easy to communicate with. We would definitely stay here again.

Great home and location for a large group, would stay here again

  • 5 of 5

We had a great couple of nights here. The home is very comfortable even with a large group. Plenty of areas to enjoy by yourself or with everyone at once. We were able to walk from the house, down to the beach, and to the Pelican Pub. Patty was very helpful and there were no major issues with the house. Everyone in the group agreed that we would stay here again if we do it next year.
