Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a wonderful time! The house was a blessing and joy to stay in! The first part of the week we had most of the place to ourselves. Our son-in-law loved the golf cart! We hate to leave your place here, but home is calling. Your every little detail to needs is awesome! Loved it here.

Gulf Coast Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a terrific week-long stay in "Serenata Beach." The location is perfect - far enough away to unplug from the activity in Gulf Shores, but close enough for quick drive into town if desired.

The house had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay for our group of 6. Literally just steps from the beach, the house is ideally located within the beautiful Martinique on the Gulf resort. We enjoyed the use of the golf cart to explore the resort and make multiple visits to each of its pools.

As other have stated, Chuck was a terrific host - easily accessible and always quick to reply.

This was our first trip to the Gulf Coast, but hopefully not our last. That said, this place sets the bar pretty high for any future visits.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Serenata Beach!!

  • 5 of 5

House is well appointed and all the beds were comfortable. With the six of us, everyone had their own suite with private bath.The open living-dining-kitchen was great for our meals and evening games or movie watching. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils, dishes, silverware and large refrigerator and pantry for stocking our weeks food. The white sand beach is wide and has plenty of room for setting up our personal family area to spend the day. The board walk made the beach conviently close and was never never crowded which is why we prefer staying in the Ft Morgan area. The swimming pools were both well maintained and clean and having the workout gym available was a definite plus. And you never have to drive far if you prefer to dine out. The Sassy Bass and Behind the Pines were both good for casual dining and only a couple of minutes away. Reserving our stay was easy and Thomas personally contacted us on arrival day and mid week to ensure we had everything we needed. When we come back we will definitely stay at Serenata Beach!!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The house was in a great location and close to the beach. We did however have issues with the home being clean. There was trash under the beds,and the sheets were a little bit questionable if they were clean. The sleeper sofa was very comfortable. The golf cart was not in working order but the owner made a special trip to fix it and once fixed it was fun to drive around in it. The owner did assure us he would discuss these issues with his house keeper. He did communicate with me a lot and I appreciated that . He even offered to allow us to move to a different location but there was nothing to rent in the area so we stayed. He did refund our cleaning fee. I cannot stress enough how nice this area is the pool was just beautiful and the beach was not crowded at all.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed Chuck's property. He was very helpful easy to reach if we needed anything! Close to beach the pools were very nice to have access to. Close to anything you need as well as restaurants yet still secluded with no crowding on the beach. Our whole family really enjoyed our time! Very relaxing!
