We all know that exercise is good for body and soul.
Sometimes lying down is a healthy thing.

The opportunity is here to be as active or as idle as you wish.
If you want laptop time with complimentary WiFi, it's everywhere.  I recommend the corner office with a view.
Too many emails may call for a rest with a good book.
Perhaps even more hammock time will be called for later.  De-stress at least twice a day.

Never miss a sunset.
Wake rested ... tomorrow may be another perfect day in paradise at Serenity on the Beach.

This was undoubtedly one of the best vacation homes we have ever stayed in. Five siblings and my parents returned to my father's homeland to once again enjoy Jamaica. It was a dream. The location 20 minutes from Montego Bay airport is so easy and yet one does not hear planes flying above in fact it is a sanctuary of bird life, fauna and complete "serenity". The house itself is on a long ocean frontage...

Management response:

I couldn’t be more pleased than knowing your vacation in Serenity on the Beach was a success for you and your girls! Thanks so much for taking the time to let me know and for sharing the experience with others. That staff is, indeed, remarkable and I love them too! May the happy memories last long! Warmest regards, Linda

We have rented many homes or villas on trips but this ones the topper. Because the house was on the water, perfect to swim, paddle board, kayak and have dinners at sunset. Because the house is staffed with the finest people you worry about Nothing! Everything taken care of for you. We felt that Gladstone, Maud, Jean and Pauline as well as Alicia our driver were the best people in any Villa you could rent....
