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 Hope Town

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.

Peacefull.

Complete privacy as Serenity is on a peninsula.

Most amazing sunsets.

Nice restaurants closed to it.

Very protected area.

Come over and see that we have told you only the truth :-) !

A week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed many times on Elbow Cay and the surrounding area over the last 40 years, but we are now forever spoiled. Serenity is as advertised, a home where everything you could possibly need or want has been provided, and a place you will not soon forget. The grounds are spectacular, with well thought out walkways which wind efficiently through the foliage. Flowers, bushes and trees lend the genuine feel of an arboretum, and every plant is perfectly maintained. We had a special appreciation for the stepped down dock design, which allows easy access into and out of the boat, as well as the surrounding water of White Sound for snorkeling. Every detail has been well thought out; even a carport for the golf cart just outside the front door. One day the electrical power for the whole island was out for about 7 hours, but the automatic generator started instantly, and we were not affected at all ! The interior spaces of Serenity are elegant and spacious, comfortable and welcoming....after most of our days spent boating and joyriding, the outdoor showers allowed us to rinse off the salt water before lounging in the lovely pool, where we found ourselves most every afternoon before our dinners. The Abaco Inn was by far our favorite, and it is less than five minutes by cart... if it has been some time since your last visit you will be pleasantly surprised by the remodeling and upgrades. The location of Serenity, situated on the tip of the peninsula, provides the ultimate in spectacular views, and is the quietest place I could imagine. To sum it all up, let me just say that we will be back. Count on it !

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!
