Excellent - a bath would have made the difference! The rest was fantastic - highly recommended. Great location wish we had more time to do some paddling. Easy to find and safe parking - will visit again.

This was our third visit to Serendipity but our first time as residents. We spent two days here to celebrate a birthday and we were not disappointed with the comfort and facilities of the guesthouse. We had a lovely view of the lagoon and we were well placed for the facilities of Wilderness. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and... More

We had heard about their restaurant's reputation, but unfortunately our one night was on a Sunday, so we missed out on that treat. However, our hosts were very welcoming and helped us with an alternative eating place nearby, which was also very good. Delicious choice... More

This was our 4th visit to Serendipity, so that in itself speaks louder than words. The guesthouse sits at the far end of waterside rd and backs onto the lovely lagoon. Complimentary canoes are provided to idle away the hours rowing upstream towards the waterfall. The water is warm and shallow in many places, so you can easily jump out... More

Everything about this guest house was superb. breakfast nicely presented. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The service was excellent and the restaurant was exceptional. The guest house was well located and close to other restaurants and the beach. The owner and her husband always had a smile and were very friendly

We received a very warm welcome for our three night stay. The restaurant was the main reason we had booked Serendipity and we were not disappointed. It was fabulous! The room was excellent and the location was superb.
