Love, Love Love the Property

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing!!! It is so refreshing to be excited about a property when you see the online photos and when you arrive it's better than you ever anticipated. The views from all the balconies are breathtaking. We wish we could have stayed longer. We had a fabulous time, the location was perfect, the fishing from the dock was great. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating during our entire stay. We can't wait to return!!!

Spacious and paeceful

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed here for 3 nights over spring break. The location was perfect and the kids were so excited to have tons of space to roam around in with bright sun streaming in and balconies with gorgeous views. It is very quiet there yet a central location to everything we wanted to do..Islamorada and Key Largo.

Nestor was great and gave perfect recommendations on places to eat and things to do. We loved our stay and would go back tomorrow!!!

Lovely Location with Wonderful Water Views!

  • 5 of 5

Once again we returned to Serenity Bay Villas. This year, instead of the Garden Apartment, we rented the upstairs unit which consists of two floors, three bedrooms, and three bathrooms. There is a wonderful water view from every window and balcony. Each room is spacious and comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need for dining in, along with a grill on the second floor deck. We had a wonderful month vacation at this lovely location! The owner, Nestor, is very accommodating and is always available if needed. In 2016, we are returning to Serenity Bay Villas!

Peaceful and luxury living

  • 5 of 5

I just got back to MN from our stay in the FL Keys and I can't imagine staying anywhere better. We came as a group of four (two couples) and this was a great location for a quiet and relaxing vacation. The house is beautiful and the views are amazing. The pictures just really do not do it's justice. If you are looking for a peaceful getaway stay here and you will be more than pleased. Nestor was very accommodating and helpful with local tips and recommendations. We will be back!

A Great place to stay in the keys!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful oceanfront home made our get together very very memorable!! Nestor is a very genuine person and he took really good care of us. The home is exactly the same as shown in the pictures and was very clean, beautiful, comfortable and secure. Thoroughly enjoyed staying there and would love to go back any time. The security deposit was also returned in full in a week.

This place was spacious, beautiful, and very clean. There is so much extra space! The place is so clean that I was comfortable walking around barefoot. I felt like a princess in this palace!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Nestor, thanks so much for the wonderful stay we enjoyed at Serenity Bay Villas! We will recommend it to anyone we can. And the mystery of the perfume scent in bed is solved; our own new laundry fabric softener at home had a scent we weren't expecting, and I guess my nightgown was the culprit. Anyway, we had a great time in your luxurious spread. Have a great spring/summer.
