The magic, natural charm and elegance of Serenity by the Sea has touched many hearts and brought healing to those who were open and seeking it. It is a rare and unique property.
Built 33 years ago by Shera Street and her partner Chidakash, it is a truly magical place. The vision, love and care, with which they designed and built Serenity By The Sea, the breathtaking architectural and views from every angle in every suite impresses everyone who visits. There is no other place on the planet like it!
Instead of coercing Nature to fit their plans they instead let nature guide and inspire them. They built Serenity to fit the nature around them, which is no easy feat on a waterfront cliffside property! They created a true architectural masterpiece that inspires awe and wonder.
My husband and I are so honoured to have been chosen by Shera to be the new owners and stewards of this most magical place. There were many offers, but she chose us. Our life has never been the same since.
We are now in our third year and growing strong. Every year we upgrade different aspects of the property and embellish the suites more. Being a 33 year old home there is never a shortage of items on our todo list. :)We love building upon the beauty and services the original owners created, making Serenity our own and improving the experiences of our guests.
Our focus is being a Healing Retreat Centre where you can come to rest deeply, explore and heal what is looking for healing within. Be it simply healing from stress or deeper traumas, Serenity by the Sea offers the perfect environment to unwind, reflect and be nourished by nature.
We also offer many Healing and Coaching services to assist in getting to the root of challenges, bring healing and find effective solutions that can easily be integrated in daily life. We also teach techniques to help navigate stress better.
We have put a lot of attention to upgrading the suites with high quality organic bedding that is silky smooth and so pleasurable to sleep in and Serta Sleep technology mattresses for a heavenly nights sleep. Hypoallergenic bedding and pillows and upgraded kitchen utensils and spices so our guests have everything they need to prepare delicious meals during their stay. Also our mini gym is a new addition. We have many more things in our vision of Serenity that we will be continually upgrading and designing!
The guests who absolutely love Serenity are Nature Lovers, seekers of soul, serenity and meaningfulness in life.
As beautiful and majestic as Serenity is, there are some who do not enjoy such a raw and natural environment, which is fine, we want to be fully transparent so that we attract the guests that are wanting absolute silence and full immersion in nature.
That being said, to be very clear, please know that we are not a Marriot or a Holiday Inn. We are in the rain forest on a cliff, on the waterfront where the terrain is not polished.
So, if you love nature, including all it’s critters that roam the land… if you are comfortable with silence… if you enjoy the adventure of being in a somewhat rustic and raw natural environment*… if you are looking to decompress from the hustle and bustle and stress of modern life and looking to heal and reconnect to what is really important in life: rest, your heart, your joy, relationships, love, kindness, beauty, and goodness… to be nourished by nature, then Serenity by the Sea is the perfect place for you.
Whether you come as a B&B guest, to retreat and just be on your own or if you wish to design a focused Healing Retreat to experience while you are here, the land and we welcome you whole heartedly. We love meeting new people and sharing meaningful moments.
We are at your service and will do all we can to create the best experience for you.
We look forward to meeting you.
Luannah and Juan
Navigating in times of Covid
We are taking extra care in cleaning and sanitizing the suites as we re-open after the Covid Lockdown.
We want you to feel safe and we want to feel safe too as we live here. This is our home.
If you have any symptoms before or when you arrive please do the responsible thing and cancel. We will not charge any fees when cancelling for that reason.
We are now doing Self Checkins and Check outs as the suites are completely private. No one will enter your suite during your stay. Payments will be done via etransfer or paypal to avoid the need of using payment terminals. Hand Sanitizer and cleaners are in each suite.
The Jacuzzi is unfortunately closed until next year. There are no breakfasts at this time either.
Working together to keep each other safe is essential to flattening the curve. We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
*Please note that if you have any mobility challenges all our pathways are of brick, natural earth and stone, there are no paved roads or paths. There are also some stairs to ascend to get to all of the suites.
Also, being on an Island many unexpected situations can arise such as wind, rain and snow storms that can cause a tree to fall on a power line on the main roads causing a power outage. BC Hydro is really efficient in getting the power up and running as fast as they can, but it does mean that temporarily we are left without water and electricity. A disposition of patience and acceptance in this kind of situation is essential. This can happen mostly in the winter and spring season but can occasionally happen in the summer as well. We provide lanterns and there is bottled water to navigate the interim. Welcome to the adventure of being on an island!
