Ready for a little digital decompression? We are OFF-GRID. So, that means no air condition, no tv, no telephone, no video games, etc. However, there is solar power for lights and your devices, WiFi is available if you get shaky from digital withdrawals, and of course we simply open the door to condition the air.. The hut is cozy, tidy and sparkling clean. The compact kitchen inside is well-equipped, and outside both charcoal and wood fired grills are ready for cooking "island style". Great hiking, fishing, swimming, beachcombing, sunbathing, more. all at your doorstep. Just want to chill? Layout on the deck net and let the Caribbean sun and breeze caress your body, or climb into the hammock and fall asleep to the gentle sound of waves lapping on the beach. All the amenities here are "au naturel". The Caribbean sun for warmth, Bahamian breeze to cool off. Warm salty sea for a soothing soak. SerenityBahamas com

Back to heaven!
We stayed at "the hut" last year for 4 days of our two weeks on Long Island and disappointed that we didn't stay here the whole time. This trip we ditched our overstuffed luggage and spent our entire time au-naturel at Serenity and as we expected, it was absolute heaven. We were giddy to be back and thankful nothing had changed, except the path to the beach is nicer with the pads. Jim, alerted us to some "solar" hot water issues but we just didn't notice any problem with it and it would not have mattered anyway since we almost exclusively used the open air shower. We were prepared for some hiccups being two weeks "off grid" and "minimalist" but everything worked perfectly and zero stress was had. It only rained a few times and we used that opportunity to go explore the island. This is certainly not a place for adrenaline junkies or hotel activities types, but for do-little beach bums like us, this place is pure heaven. We drank the kool-aid. We are hooked and already on our way back (mentally). Dave & Trisha

Super private off-grid location; central on island
My wife and I went in Mid May 2022. This is an underutilized villa! For us it was perfect. We had absolute privacy for the 4 nights we were there. The villa is set up on a hill with a very easy and short walk down to the beach. The setting allows for glorious ocean and beach views and almost no bug problem. The au natural experience can be full time if desired. We saw only a man and is son walk the long beach one afternoon and the setting on the beach is such that you can see people coming from 1/2 mile away if you need that comfort feeling of extra privacy. One evening we cooked on the propane grill provided and one evening we cooked with charcoal in the provided area. Easy. It was pretty cloudy the entire time we were there but there was never a problem with electricity. Just be aware of what you have and be reminded that you don't need as much as we are all used to having. The refrig and freezer worked just fine; there was plenty of water and bottled for drinking/cooking. Shower's were cool in the evenings due to so much cloud cover, but during the day we had warm water. The large and covered patio space had a lounger with pad big enough for two and the pictures show the great two chairs that we sat in often to read and drink morning coffee. There was a netting area for sunning that we never used because we enjoyed being on the beach most all the time. It's a 2o minute drive to go fishing--easy. It's a 15 minute drive to a great grocery--Hillside Grocery--easy. Liquor store- 15 minutes--easy. We did Dean's blue hole one day and saw only 3 other people there the entire afternoon. Great trip and time there with good snorkeling. Enjoyed Max's bar and grill and fished with Captain Lau and caught tuna, mackerel, and barracuda. This little unit is a great find--alot of attention has gone into it's planning and presentation. Great stepping stones on the paths, the foliage has been clipped away so walking is easy to get to the beach. Overall, a great time and we hope to go back.

Four Days And Never Left
"Serenity" perfectly describes this place. A charming beach house overlooking a stunning beach where I didn't see a single person walking anywhere during my stay. If you want to just relax and enjoy beautiful surroundings with a stunning view, it is a wonderfully serene place. There is no overload, just purity, everything you need is there, but nothing that distracts. The house is cozy, minimalistic, very clean, well equipped for cooking and grilling outside and my favorite part, it's solar powered! The location is remote but it's still just 5 minutes to groceries, farmers market, gas station and liquor store where you can stock up for a blissful solitary stay. The hardest part is getting to and from the house, you will want a 4 wheel drive vehicle. They are working on the road, it is steep and bumpy, but it's absolutely worth it. I spent countless carefree hours relaxing in the hammock, taking strolls in super soft white and pinkish sand. Dozing away in the evening whilst stargazing from the sun bed with the hypnotic sound of waves in the background. I can't imagine a better way and place to be in tune with nature. It's like a dream, and when you wake up and you can hear and see the waves from your bed, you know there is nothing else that could make your day better. Except maybe doing yoga on the porch. The host was very nice and helpful and made me feel very welcomed and comfortable. You can find many useful tips and book this incredible little piece of paradise, on their website. I love Long Island. It is rich in history, culture, and amazing beaches and sights to see, but I didn't leave the place at all, once you've been there, you are hooked and I just didn't want to waste a moment away. This was definitely not my last visit there. As a solo female traveler, I've not seen any other place with such nature, privacy and safety at the same time, such an amazing place to stay. Thanks for creating this perfect little hideaway.
