5 Stars are not enough!

  • 5 of 5

Having just returned from our holiday in Dartmouth we wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying in your amazing apartment. It is truly fabulous. Five star status does not do it justice. It is spacious, beautifully designed, superbly equipped and immaculate.Everything has been provided. The waterside location gives the most stunning views; sitting on the large terrace watching the boats go by is delightful. The town itself is just a short walk away.

'Serenity' is very special. We hope to be able to return.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We had the privilege of staying at Serenity for Easter week. From my very first contact with Lyn and Gary, I knew that it was going to be a good week. They're incredibly responsive, friendly and helpful, which gave me absolute confidence that we'd chosen the right place for our family break.

We were very lucky with the weather for the week we stayed, but it was the luxury and comfort of Serenity which made this a holiday we'll always remember. The photos and description on this website can't begin do justice to this very, very special holiday home.

Serenity is located a 5 minute stroll from the centre of pretty Dartmouth, at the quiet end of the Dartmouth Marina complex (use of the leisure facilities are included in the rental). A designated private parking space is directly outside the front door.

On entering the apartment, the first impression is of how big it is and of how much care has been taken in every aspect of its presentation. The door opens to reveal an impressively large and tastefully decorated space; wooden floors; 2 very large and immaculate bathrooms with underfloor heating (reminiscent of a top 5 star hotel); 2 large bedrooms both with beautifully comfortable beds and TV's/DVD players (one double, one twin); a very large and beautifully furnished living/dining room equipped with a big state of the art Smart TV (with WIFI, DVD player, loads of DVDs, sound-bar); a large furnished terrace facing directly onto Dart Marina; a kitchen equipped with a vast array of utensils and devices; a cupboard with a good selection of board games...there were too many comforts and luxuries to list here.

All these luxuries pale into insignificance however compared to the situation itself. Stood on the terrace with the water lapping beneath the railings, you can watch the boats come and go; the steam train puffing along the opposite river bank; the higher ferry drifting backwards and forwards; and the comings and goings of the river wildlife.

All in all, it felt like a little piece of heaven and I hope sincerely we will have the opportunity to go back.

Stunning !

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful apartment exceeded all the expectations my wife and I had when the booking was made. No effort and I daresay expense has been spared by Lyn and Gary to make this an outstanding rental property.

This apartment is tastefully furnished with the living areas and bedrooms absolutely immaculate . The kitchen is fitted with ultra modern equipment, has stunning views and is a pleasure to work in.

Also the views from the extremely large terrace are just unbelievable and we spent hours just sitting there watching the comings and goings on the river.

Of all the properties we have rented over the past thirty years this is by far the best and I would commend it to those looking for an absolutely first rate and outstanding holiday home.

The centre of Dartmouth is a relatively short walk away, has many interesting shops and superb restaurants (don't miss Rockfish!) to choose from. All in all , we enjoyed a wonderful holiday.

Serenity

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a great location and furnished to a very high standard .The view is fantastic and we could go outside on the terrace to see the lovely River Dart.As we had gone for Christmas the owners had very kindly decorated the lounge with a lovely tree and some other decorations which made it special for us.

The kitchen is very well equipped and you have everything you need for your stay.The beds are very comfortable and the wardrobes spacious with plenty of hangers.Having three televisions was a bonus too!

We enjoyed the food and drink at the Floating Bridge and also The Royal Castle Hotel.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the apartment to family and friends.We wished we could have stayed for longer and hope to stay again in 2015.

Serenity is stunning!

  • 5 of 5

When I booked this apartment I thought it would be special and I was not disappointed.

The apartment is stunning and contains every home comfort you could ask for. The standard of cleanliness was first class. The view from the living room and terrace amazing.

We took my 86 year old mum with us and because the apartment is on the level we had no worries about her tripping or falling.

We had a car parking space right outside the apartment which was great as parking in Dartmouth is at a premium.

We had quite a few pub meals at the Floating Bridge (a couple of minutes walk from the apartment) which we thoroughly enjoyed.

We also had a couple of lovely evening meals in the restaurant at the Royal Castle. The views from the upstairs restaurant are beautiful.

For any one looking for a peaceful holiday in luxurious surroundings and stunning location, Serenity is the place for you. I have no hesitation in recommending it.

Stunning Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Serenity....the perfect name for the perfect apartment. We spent a wonderful 5 days at Serenity, thank you to Lyn and Gary for arranging our stay so professionally and at such short notice. We were welcomed by Ian the caretaker 2 hours earlier than our expected time of arrival. We could not fault this delightful apartment with the most beautiful views and in a prime location. So relaxing just watching the boats, ferry and quaint steam train passing by from the large terrace. We would recommend the local pub The Floating Bridge, friendly staff and excellent food. This apartment is 5 star and more, the decor is beautiful with everything you could possibly need. The location is perfect, convenient to ferry, shops, restaurants and bars. We would highly recommend Serenity and definitely hope to return in the future.
