Wonderful getaway
5/5 stars
My wife and I stayed at Serenity for a couple of nights while celebrating our 20th anniversary. The house was wonderful, warm, and very cozy. The only minor issue was the fact that there was an RV parked in the back yard that was occupied during our stay, which was not disclosed to us prior to arriving, and not in any of the pictures. There were no blinds or curtains to block either kitchen window, so was privacy was not as good as it could have been. Other than that, it was a wonderful home to celebrate our time together and very convenient to Gloucester, Rockport, and Salem.

Hi Robert, We are elated to hear how much you enjoyed your stay with us at Serenity, we also love how welcoming and warm the house seems to be no matter who comes to stay. Serenity is truly the perfect home away from home. We love how wonderful of a job our cleaners do to ensure the properties are clean and ready to go for all of our guests.

Serenity is the perfect name!
5/5 stars
We arrived late at night to find the lights on and everything we could possibly need at our fingertips. The home was clean and comfortable which allowed us to immediately relax after a busy day and long drive. The RV mentioned in a previous review is still in the backyard but it didn’t effect our vacation at all. I wish the owners success with the renovation of the back unit! The neighborhood is quiet and close to restaurants and attractions. It was a great getaway!
- Sue

Didn't you love getting to enjoy your time relaxing, or even going out to see the beautiful little pond in the backyard? We love how wonderful of a job our cleaners do to ensure each guest has a clean and relaxing experience. We truly hope to see you again soon!

Home away from home
5/5 stars
Our Serenity home worked perfectly for us for our 3 week escape from the heat of Arizona. The AC worked perfectly; the home is very nice and clean with a beautiful yard. The service was top notch; they answered texts late into the night and took care of our every need.

Hi Dawn, We are so happy to hear that you have enjoyed your stay with us at Serenity and truly appreciate your feedback. It is truly a wonderful home to relax in when you want to escape the heat of the hot summer days, or even come to keep cozy on cold winter nights. Didn't you love the breathtaking beauty of the backyard? A wonderful little space to sit down by the little pond in the late afternoon! We hope to see you again real soon when you need another getaway from the heat!

“Serenity” truly deserves its name! The house is beautiful, quiet, comfortable, peaceful - much more a “home” than any other place I have rented. The hosts are two of the kindest people I have ever met, incredibly warm and caring. I loved every minute there and cannot say enough good things!

Helpful but hands off
5/5 stars
I'm not exactly sure whom I'm reviewing here, but the property was beautiful and perfectly located, the neighborhood was wonderful, with the sea just a short walk/bike ride away, and the owners were delightful. The property manager answered our questions very promptly via email, but we did not need to consult during our stay. Thanks to everyone!

We are two retired couples traveling through the New England states together. It is wonderful to be able to travel and then retire to a lovely home in the evening. We spend our day exploring and our evenings playing cards and enjoying each other’s company.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit at 5 Ryan Rd! Everything was super clean and lovely! I was kind of sad to have all the construction work going on outside which somewhat hampered our ability to enjoy the patio and fish pond, but that certainly is not your fault! We were beyond blessed to be able to be there! Thank you for all your efforts and hard work! Blessings for your kind care, Neil and Elaine Sandford

We (myself , my wife , my daughter & her partner) spent a week (July 6th to 13th) at the house on Ryan Avenue , Gloucester . The house is very comfortable with every appliance to make our stay comfortable . Liann was very helpful and attentive which made our stay very enjoyable . We would certainly return if we were in the Gloucester area again .

5/5 stars
"Serenity" indeed! This rental property, entitled "Serenity," is truly a home away from home and a quiet respite for travelers on the go. We were always happy to return at the end of the day knowing that we had a peaceful and cozy place in which to unwind and get some rest.The owners, Wendell and Beryl, are very welcoming, and they are committed to ensuring that their renters are comfortable--and we were! The living room furniture and beds are excellent. The full kitchen is well-equipped and easy to work in. The dining area overlooking the back yard is just perfect and has a wall-mounted television, great for catching the morning news and weather.The lighting, which is mostly recessed and with dimmers, is impressive and creates a softly-lit atmosphere for evenings. It took me some time to figure out all the switches! There are also ceiling fans throughout the unit which operate very efficiently and a bathroom fan that can be set on a timer. I was to later learn that Wendell is an electrician. He certainly applied his expertise in creating this wonderful property for his renters to enjoy.We highly recommend this property to others. It is honestly one of the best that we have ever rented over the years!
