About Teresa Holt

Serenity House is owned by Stephen and Teresa Holt who love Diamondhead and live next door to Serenity House.

Teresa Holt purchased this house in 2008

Why Teresa Holt chose Hot Springs

We love the quiet area of Diamondhead and the wonderful quirky and artsy town of Hot Springs and wanted to share the area with others. We are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful part of the world!

What makes this house unique

The quiet cove on Diamondhead provides a Serene atmosphere where cranes, geese, ducks, fox, and deer are ample. Swimming and fishing are sports that many participate in from the dock just steps from the house. Serenity House is located in Diamondhead Community where a swimming pool is available in the summer and golfing throughout the year. Diamondhead is centrally located just minutes from Hot Springs, Garvin Gardens and Malvern (I-30).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay at Serenity House these past three days. What a treasure you have in your quaint little bungalow! Our porch time was enhanced by the symphony of sound from nature's chorus including geese honking, birds chirping, and squirrells chattering. The house was warm and welcoming with little "touches" to make us feel so very comfortable. It was almost like we were visiting a good friend! May the Lord bless you and your family.

Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5

You couldn't ask for ,this house has everything you need. It is immaculate and serene indeed. Our families had a wonderful time.

I was skeptical at first when all I seen were positive reviews. I said to myself there has got to be at least one thing wrong. But I was wrong, the place is absolutely beautiful.

Beautiful serene setting, perfect fall getaway

  • 4 of 5

Serenity House lives up to its name. We had a great stay, loved the community, nature (seeing deer, squirrels and chipmunks everyday) and playing the golf course, twice! Especially loved it being pet friendly so we could bring our Zoe! We will definitely be back.

Absolutely loved our trip and staying at the Serenity house!!

  • 5 of 5

The Serenity house was extremely peaceful and the owners are very friendly. They are right next door and made sure our stay was perfect. We brought our dog and she loved laying out on the back porch. Would love to come back here again!

Owner's Response: We would love to have you come stay for a week! There is a lot to see and do. Plus just hanging on the lake has its benefits too. Teresa
