We stayed at Sharon's Serentiy for five nights and will never make that mistake again. What a surprise to find that we were staying in a utility room with a sagging broken down bed (the Blue Room). The room has inadequate light and the bathroom door hits the side of the bed when opened.
The breakfast was okay, but you need to look away from the kitchen prep area. You will want to concentrate on visiting with the guests and not watch Sharon prepare the food. Taking the jam, peanut butter, and cream cheese dishes off the serving area and adding to them and then setting the used, refilled dishes aside for the next day is not an acceptable practice. Not to mention the finger licking and spoon licking that went on during the process. Yes, we saw that every morning. The preparation of dog food at the breakfast bar was less than appetizing.
It was difficult to sleep with the blaring television and sounds of breakfast preparation and phone conversations at 11:30 p.m. - just outside the paper thin walls of the Blue Room.
We did not feel welcome at the Serenity. Perhaps the host's coolness has to do with her expectation of the guests' disappointment with the Blue room set up as a utility room. The pool and living room are not inviting, with barriers all around. The fence and gate around the living room are said to keep the dogs out, but seem to keep guests out.
The website is misleading and apparently has been for at least three years according to past reviewers. Nothing is said on the website about the Blue room and the utilites in the room. Please read all negative reviews and know that they are right on.
We enjoyed visiting with the other guests and found the location to be very convenient for an early morning walk to the beach.
