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.

Lovely Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Serenata Beach House for 3 weeks and it felt like home away from home. We arrived to find a very clean home with comfortable furnishings and beautiful surroundings. Martinique on the Gulf is as beautiful as it looks in the pictures. It was so nice to have an indoor pool on the cooler days, yet when it was sunny you could find a nice lounge chair at both outdoor pools. Beach access was wonderful--there are 2 boardwalks to the beach just a 2 minute walk from the house. We enjoyed many walks on the beach and met so many nice people--it is common to see people gather on the boardwalks to watch the beautiful sunsets. We had a great kitchen to cook in and a few nights we cooked local fish and shrimp from a seafood shop just a few miles drive on Fort Morgan Road. If you don't want to cook, they will steam it for you! Chuck was a great host and checked in with us to make sure all was going well. He was easy to work with to make reservations and really cares about his house and his renters. We loved that Martinique feels quiet and secluded, but if you want to go to town you are there in 15-20 minutes and there are plenty of places to eat and shop. We also went to the Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola which is fascinating. We look forward to staying at Serenata Beach House again and would highly recommend it to others--you won't be disappointed!

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!!
