My wife and I decided to take a last minute getaway to the Shore for her 60th birthday. We looked at many listings on VRBO but kept coming back to Serenity. There was something about the decor that evoked the 'feeling' we were looking for in our getaway; calm, peaceful, relaxing. We were not disappointed when we saw Serenity in person. Everything was clean and ready for our stay, including a goodies basket from David. The spectacular ocean view and the sound of the waves allowed us to unwind almost instantly. Watching a full moon rise over the ocean was, according to my wife, the best birthday gift she received. Staying at Serenity felt like staying at a boutique hotel. with a great location, inspired decor and low key vibe. Louis was very helpful and attentive to our needs, even making dinner reservations for us. We will definitely return to Serenity.

This home was perfect for our quiet beach getaway and exceeded our expectations. The location speaks for itself with captivating ocean views, just steps to the beach. This is a high-end, beautifully and thoughtfully decorated home with an open airy feel. The master bedroom and bathroom are large and tastefully decorated as are the other bedrooms and sitting areas. The dining table in the enclosed porch was a wonderful spot to eat and enjoy the ocean breezes. The home is supplied with everything you could need, the kitchen was well stocked, and the welcome basket was a thoughtful touch. The beach chairs and umbrellas were a huge bonus as were the beach tags. The owner was very easy to communicate with and was very welcoming. Thank you for sharing this very special and inviting home with us!
Another great week at Serenity!

Family and I had another great week down at Serenity! The views continues to amaze and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean is a favorite. Looking forward to continued improvements of the property and future stays!
the perfect place for a fall getaway

Serenity is comfortable, beautiful, and clean. We loved staying there in the offseason, watching the ocean, and enjoying the gorgeous beach. (we got lucky, it was 78 degrees most days!) The house is lovely and the decor is high quality and inspiring. We spent a lot of time on the decks and in the pretty dune-facing screened-in porch. It's perfect for a couple or small group of family or friends. We would definitely stay there again, and we hated to leave. Thank you to David, the owner, and Louis, the incredible designer, for this beautiful home. We found them to be helpful, responsive and great to work with. THANK YOU!!!!
Great Home on LBI
September 29, 2021
Family and I had a wonderful time at this oceanfront home. Pictures don't do the views justice and the recent renovations were top notch. Well appointed with touches to make it feel just like home especially in the kitchen. Looking forward to staying here again!

There could not be a better name for this home! There is no more peaceful or calming feeling than being on one of the multiple decks of this home. My family has been renting in LBI every summer for over thirty years and this is the most beautiful house by a long shot! It is decorated beautifully with attention to detail but is also very practical. All of the bathrooms have just been updated. The whole home was clean as can be on arrival. The views from the decks and inside the home are breathtaking! It is on the perfect spot of the island, where there are still things to do but in a quieter location. The homeowner was extremely responsive throughout our stay and even left us a giant tray of pastries for when we arrived. We enjoyed them the whole week. To top it all off we were able to bring our dog!!

Walking in to the house and seeing the pastry platter David provided was a pleasant surprise. We would like to thank David for having the beds made for us upon our arrival. We have been in other rentals where linens were provided, but we would have to make up all the beds. The layout of the house worked out very well for us. It was nice to have two open seating areas to watch TV or just relax. Sitting on the top deck in the early morning watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee was the best way to start each day. Fortunately for us, the weather cooperated (Ida somehow missed LBI) and it made our stay even better. As is the case for almost everyoneâs vacation, the week flew by and now it just seems like a distant memory. David was the perfect host. Thank you for giving us a lot of great memories. Best, Steve
House was just what we needed

We were very lucky to find this beautiful oceanfront house for our vacation. It was the perfect size for our family and we enjoyed every bit of it. The decor is beautiful and the views are outstanding. In addition, the owner has thought through all the details - his beach chairs are top notch and I even noticed he has toys in the garage in case you have small children. We cooked several nights and everything was there - excellent knives, cutting boards, serving bowls and a large screened in porch to eat in with the sound of the ocean coming through the windows. I believe another family said it best - We don't want to write too good a review so the house is available again for us.
Return to Serenity. Perfection
August 02, 2021
This is fast becoming our favorite vacation home. Every element is selected with great care. In addition to a wonderful location, the home offers lovely decor and ample room for all to join together or spread out. We were there for almost four weeks and still werenât ready to leave. Thanks to our host and Louis Shaw for creating this magical retreat.
A wonderful retreat from the world.

After missing our family trip to Colorado, we were lucky enough to make reservations at this wonderful oceanfront home in Harvey Cedars. At the time of the booking, we were told the house, recently purchased, wasnât in tiptop shape. We were completely surprised to find the most welcoming, lovely home. For our family, which included grandparents, parents, and two teenage girls, it was a great way to return to LBI which had been our summer home for 34 years. The house offers the best views from its many balconies and porches. Because we were still working on Zoom, we were thrilled to see the houseâs two distinct family rooms. While the kitchen and baths could use some upgrades, the overall vibe of the house was warm and yet, quite stylish. I would probably be a bit nervous to bring very young children as there are many open stairs. Other than that, this is a wonderful choice for a family retreat. I donât want to praise it too much so itâll be available for us!!
Perfect location - beautiful & cozy holiday home!
October 12, 2020
The property is stylishly appointed and comfortable; we appreciated the modern furnishings while enjoying the unique architecture of the home. While the home could benefit from some cosmetic updates, we lacked for nothing and had an amazing holiday... amazing beachfront location, quality furnishings, plentiful amenities and excellent communication from the owners. Highly recommend this holiday home!
Beautiful, Clean and Well-appointed
August 13, 2020
Our family previously owned a home on LBI for three decades and this was the first time weâd rentedâwe were not disappointed. This home was exactly as advertised and everything we were hoping for in a beautiful, clean, and well-appointed home overlooking the beach. It provided our family with a much needed relaxing vacation. Our only regret is that we canât go back sooner! ____________________________________________________
