About Serenity

We are European and we discovered the Bahamas by boat. The first time was July 2008 and we cruised all around the Bahamas three times a year till 2012. We love the Bahamas which offers such clear water and great temperature. We have been amazed by all the features that Elbow cay and Hope Town could offer. Nice restaurants, beautiful beaches, activities such as scuba diving, fishing guides and so on. The village and its great colorful houses without forgetting its famous lighthouse convinced us to settle down here in 2013.

Serenity purchased this estate in 2013

Why Serenity chose Bahamas

We fall in love with Serenity which sits on a private peninsula at 10 minutes drive by golf cart from Hope Town, in the White Sound! No neighbors except in the back where the road reaches the house, but only sea and stunning view all around the house with spectacular sunraises and sunsets.

The house is luxuriously furnished with a superb modern open kitchen overlooking two large lounges. All details of the layout of the kitchen convinces the lady of the most demanding home. All the details are there, from microwave to dishwasher without forgetting a refined dishes and table service available to guests. Furniture has been chosen with taste and refined and the house has its personalized decoration. As soon as you step in Serenity, you feel home! Serenity is constantly renovated, extremely well maintained and offers anyone its place. Nice huge dock which can welcome boats together with its opened gazebo and swimming dock. An external closed gazebo is at disposal for those like privacy to read and so on. We hope you will be as convinced as us, the first time we saw Serenity! The spell of Serenity is something that you won’t find anywhere else.

Serenity is beautiful all day long.Lush gardens and winding walks. The most romantic spot on the island.

What makes this estate unique

Bone fishing area.


Complete privacy as Serenity is on a peninsula.

Most amazing sunsets.

Nice restaurants closed to it.

Very protected area.

Expensive but worth it

  • 5 of 5

This is the nicest house we have ever rented in the Abacos, and we have been renting here for over 20 years. Other than some doors that were hard to lock, everything worked perfectly and well. The house and grounds are designed in such a way that many people can find solitude and peace away from others. The grounds are beautiful with many coconut trees and exotic tropicals. The view is unprecedented and spans almost 270 degrees.

An incredible experience

  • 5 of 5

I have sailed and traveled throughout the Bahamas since 1976 , and have been returning yearly to the Abacos for the past 12 years . Serenity is without a doubt the best property at which we have stayed ... the house is exceptionally well maintained , modern and has a great vibe . The location on White Sound is perfect , and the views are beautiful . We will be back ... maybe 2 or 3 weeks next time !!

Beautiful Home In Paradise on Elbow Cay

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to have the opportunity to stay for the second time at Serenity this year. Another amazing vacation in paradise! We have been visiting the Abaco Islands for many years and have stayed at a couple of places, but feel like we have found our "home away from home" at Serenity. It is perfect for two couples, which is how we have stayed there. Plenty of privacy and plenty of gathering space. We love exploring the islands by boat during the day, but always look forward to returning to Serenity to enjoy time at the pool and home. The owners are marvelous to work with and are always quick to help in any way they can. Looking forward to many more years of visiting and staying at Serenity!

Best on Elbow Cay

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best properties on Elbow Cay. The house is spacious and impeccable, the grounds are unique and beautifully maintained. We loved the amenities -- the dock, pool and especially the amazing cabana overlooking the Sea of Abaco. A perfect place. Owners and caretakers are lovely and responsive. Rent a boat and explore!

Our holiday week at Serenity went by too quickly! The entire experience was a pleasure. We have stayed in many VRBOs and this one had everything we needed and more! The kitchen was a dream, the layout of the house was perfect and the grounds were beautiful! Elbow Cay is a gem of an island. We look forward to many return trips to Serenity!

Car: recommended

Serenity is located on a peninsula in the White Sound at 10 minutes drive from Hope Town. The area is peacefull and very quiet surounded by stunning ocean view. Abaco Inn is a 3-5 minutes golf cart drive as well as Sea Spray Marina and FireFly resort. The 3 places offer delicious meals.
