Two floors of decks provide panoramic views, conversational seating, and delightful morning breezes. The sunsets are spectacular! Plus, you’ll regularly see deer resting on the adjacent hillside and grazing in the yard.
The upper deck is perfect for “star gazing.” You can see fireworks in almost every direction as people celebrate July 4 and other holidays. There is also a covered pavilion near the parking area with bench seating.
This home comfortably accommodates 4 adults, with space in the den for an additional 1 or 2 people on an inflatable mattress. As the den is open to the living room, this is typically more comfortable for children. (A twin with linens is available upon request.)
12 mile long Medina Lake is renown for its sparkling, clear water and minimal development in many areas. There are many coves that are accessible only by water and delightful to explore. The subdivision itself has 3 simple park areas with beaches and, at the main park, a pavilion. There are some limitations on use.
There is also a state park, as well as private facilities nearby, that offer easy lake access for swimming, fishing, boat rentals and/or launching, kayaking, and hiking.
Serenity House is approximately 3 miles from the center of Lakehills. Here you’ll find a grocery store, small restaurants and food trucks, gas stations, and other amenities. Our local favorite, the Backyard Bistro, is about 10 miles away. The 4 Way Bar and Grill and Bob's Burger Barn offer great bar food and, frequently, live music on the weekend. Red Cove Marina serves basic grilled food along with beautiful lake views.
Please be sure to check out the "Neighborhood" section as there are many interesting activities and attractions within an easy drive. This includes Sea World and Fiesta TX, many cultural and historical sites in San Antonio, and lovely small towns offering wineries, restaurants, antique shops, etc.
Guests will have use of the entire residential floor, as well as both decks. (The basement garage will be closed and locked.) We ask that the indoor fireplace be used during the winter months only.
IMPORTANT: This property is not recommended for toddlers or younger children up to age 8 (depending upon the child) due to roof access and open railings on the second floor deck. There is also a significant drop from a stone retaining wall at the edge of the back yard to the street below.
We ask that the property not be used for drinking parties or large events, and that our no smoking and no pet requests be honored. It is a quiet neighborhood with primarily full time residents. Please be aware that loud music and noise carry easily.

You'll find a very well equipped kitchen; outdoor combination gas and charcoal grill; ironing board and steam iron; a hair dryer; basic paper goods (TP, paper towels & napkins), soaps and shampoo/conditioner; as well as a wide variety of spices, cooking oil, coffee, tea, sugar and creamer.
