About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this estate in 2013

Why The Owner 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 :-) !

Simply Outstanding - we'd give it a 6th star if we could....

  • 5 of 5

Anyone who desires privacy, lush gardens, great docks, amenities galore, fantastic sunrises/sunsets, convenient location, and a first-class experience all around, should not miss this stunning home. We and our 3 children immensely enjoyed the kayaks, the pool, grilling and eating outdoors, and being fortunate enough to call Serenity our home for a week. Also, the caretakers, Tricia and Donnie, are wonderful and genuine - they went far beyond the call for us, and we are grateful for having met them. Go to Serenity and you will be delighted!

Beautiful setting.....wonderful relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Serenity lives up to her name. The setting is on the tip of a small peninsula in White Sound, so you are surrounded by water and beautiful grounds, it is private and quiet, and you can watch the boats go by and the sunset from the great decks around the house. The house itself is spacious, impeccably clean, and easy to live in. The kitchen is fully equipped and we enjoyed buying groceries from the stores on the island and making most of our own meals. There is an enclosed gazebo on the water that is a great place to sit and read with some protection from the wind and sun, yet feeling totally outside. The location mid-island works perfectly; one is 5-10 minutes from Hopetown to the north or Tahiti Beach to the south. We thought Serenity was perfect for our two families with teenagers. We all had our space, and no details is missing from this great property. We will be back!

Serenity

  • 5 of 5

According to the dictionary the word "serenity" is a noun. It means the state or quality of being serene, calm, or tranquil; sereneness. This description describes the home, Serenity in White Sound, Elbow Cay, Bahamas perfectly. Our family discovered this beautiful rental home through VRBO a couple of summers ago. We have been visiting Hopetown with our three daughters ever since they were little girls, now they are all teenagers. Our family has rented Serenity for a couple of weeks each summer for several summers now. As soon as you arrive on the property, either by boat or by golf cart, you know that you have arrived to a magical place. We love that the house is at the end of the point overlooking White Sound. It has amazing views of the water from many vantage points on the property. The grounds of the property are very well maintained with lush, tropical flora. The expansive dock is very new and in great shape with easy access to docking your boat. There are also three kayaks on the dock to go exploring the surrounding waters. As you make your way up to the house, you might pass the pool which is always one of our favorite ways we end our days from being out on the water. There is also a very large outdoor shower which makes it convenient to clean up. Upon entering the home with its multi-tiered decking, you will see the beautiful, European style kitchen with its high end appliances. The décor is spectacular with hand painted flatware and whimsical cutlery. It makes cooking a breeze. There is even an herb garden on the property that you can get herbs from. The way the house is layed out, it is perfect for our family, each daughter gets her own bedroom and then they share a bathroom. The master bedroom/bathroom is a place to relax and take refuge in. One of the things that we love about this house are the views. We love to watch the sunrise from the deck or air-conditioned cabana with our coffee and we especially love to watch the extraordinary sunsets with a glass of wine. Because of the location of this home, you have amazing views no matter what time of day it is. We also love the close proximity to some of the restaurants that are on the south end of the island. The owners of Serenity are truly amazing. They make sure that everything is in order for your vacation. They really take care of their property and want you to enjoy their home. We highly recommend renting Serenity. It is our favorite home to rent in Hopetown.

Amazing Holiday! Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a beautiful week at Serenity and it could not have been any nicer!

The home is truly magnificent! It sets on an amazing piece of property that is breathtaking! The owners go above and beyond to make sure your stay is perfect in every way. We were met at the dock by the lovely caretakers Tricia and Donnie who were extremely helpful and knowledgeable! The home is very private but still located close to great restaurants, fabulous bone fishing, snorkeling! The house is so well appointed that we never wanted to leave, we cooked some amazing dinners both inside in the gourmet kitchen as well as the outdoor kitchen which is also fabulous! The icing on the cake is the unbelievable sunsets! Truly a memorable vacation! We look forward to returning to Serenity!

Relaxing and peaceful holiday

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent eight wonderful days in Serenity in February 2014. Incredible water views from all parts of the property, the convenient private boat dock where we had our rental boat for quick jaunts to Tahiti Beach and Lubbers Landing was tremendous. Incredible sunsets every night from the patio-deck are not to be missed! Bone fishing in the cove was a blast and dinners at Abaco Inn were amazing. We biked every day to Hopetown harbor and the west end for our daily exercise. And the house was very clean and comfortable, with a huge kitchen and family room and nice bedrooms. The local caretakers were very helpful with advice for fishing, dining and entertainment. We plan to return and enjoy another Serenity vacation in the Abacos!
