The Serenity Cottage
This cottage was designed with love and care to create a space that truly feels transformative. The walls are smothered with art and warmth. Creativity is seen at every turn, inside and outside. It is a sweet retreat.
The Serenity Cottage
This is not your cookie cutter cottage. This lovely home and property are filled with art and a meditative spirit. It is artfully furnished with Indonesian Teakwood furniture, Indian rugs and super comfortable sofas. In the kitchen, the marble and glass mosaic floor sets the tone. Enjoy preparing your own meals on the chef’s stove and eating at the Indonesian teak table that seats eight people. The master bedroom has a comically high queen size bed with a fabulous mattress and the bathroom has a shower built for two. Enjoy drinking coffee in the sunroom, outside on the porch or on one of the patios.
Accès des voyageurs
Please enter the house from the back entrance. Park in the driveway out front or on the street. Be very careful backing out into the street when parking in the parking space. Please feel free to enjoy the entire property. Please enjoy all the rooms in the house except the back bedroom. I do ask folks to remove their shoes. This just helps keep the beautiful carpets beautiful.
