My family recently stayed at Serendip for 4 nights (3 sisters in Alpha and parents in Juliette). The pictures and description of Alpha on line do not do it justice. It was a perfect location, amazing few, HUGE veranda, kitchen with absolutely everything you need, dining area with bar stools....tons of hang out space. My parents were in Juliette (which was a studio) and although nicely laid out it was not where they spent most of their time. The view is minimal and it's a bit cramped. Most nights we would comfortably hang out on the veranda with 5 of us...could have fit at least 10 comfortably.
The condo included unexpected surprises like beach towels, beach chairs (although they need some replacing so check them before you bring them as many don't hold in place), coolers, and tons of kitchen items.
One important bit of information is that I would highly recommend renting a car if you are staying here. The hill is incredibly steep and would make your trip less enjoyable. We just drove into town every night and parked at the free gravel lots.
It's important to mention that there are several chickens and dogs in this area so it can get a bit noisy....especially around 6 AM....but it's time to wake up and enjoy the island at that point anyway!
Michelle was very welcoming and was there if you needed her. I would highly recommend this place, particularly Alpha and plan to come back again!
