About the property

ON BEACH -2 Bdrm + new couch bed, 2 Bath, Wall of Water Shower for 2- sleeps 4

Have you ever dreamed of life on the lake? Not just a view of the lake, but actually living in a wall to wall windowed lakehouse, sliding open the front glass doors onto your large two tiered deck, walking down two steps to your warm sandy large beach...or just choosing to sit in the comfortable loungers with a firepit ready to automatically start, while the twinkle of lights from the overhead pergola sparkle as much as the million stars in the night sky above? Light the fire, pour your drink of choice (perhaps local wine from the numerous wineries very close by) and bask in the solitude or laughter - your choice. Our home on the beach is perfect and we are willing to share the beauty. IS life flying by too fast for you? Do you ever find yourself trying to fit more hours in day? not having the time to sit, relax and enjoy life due to work/home repsonsibilities? Have you ever wished for a place to get away, relax, leave your worries behind, watch the beautiful sunsets every night ? Look no more! This is the place for deadlines, reports due, lawns to mow, flowers to plant. Just you, your loved ones, sand, sun and beach and memories just waiting to be created!

Once you are scheduled at 783 Eries Shores Drive, all you need to do is pack up your food , family, personals, cameras, beach towels etc.,and drive to 'Daves Serenity' on Erie Shores Drive, Colchester, Ontario, a little getaway where heaven meets the earth-where each day brings you rejuvention and relaxation, fun and laughter - where memories with loved ones are created and each night as you tuck yourself into bed in between the cool sheets, fresh from a late night swim or finishing the bottle of wine watching the sunset from your deck - You've arrived! Pull your car into the long driveway, but don't unpack just yet! . Enter the beautiful home, walk into the newly designed kitchen, pour yourself a cool drink and take in the gorgeous view of the lake, seen through the floor to ceiling windows which wrap around the front of the home. Notice the waves lapping at the shore, take a breath, relax, - you are here at 'Daves Serenity'.

A typical day - wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee (set to brew the night before), stretch in your comfortable new pillow top mattress and grab your housecoat and comfy slippers, head into the brighly decorated modern bathroom (new soaker tub) to splash some cool water on your face, mozy through the open area living room past the big screen tv where you are greeted by the new morning beaming though the windows, slide up to the kitchen bar to grab your coffee,continuing through the sliding glass doors onto the 20 by 50 foot deck, pull up your favourite adirondack or choose the hammock on the deck to just sit, relax and let the day plans come to you. Perhaps you will enjoy taking a step onto the large sandy beach later for swimming in the sand bottom lake, watch the kids play along the shore or go for walks along the beach looking for shells. Maybe your day consists of a sightseeing trek through the local greenhouses, perhaps stopping at Colosantis in Kingsville and choosing some fresh flowers, petting the zoo animals, a round of crazy golf, a full round of golf at the nearby golf course, or packing a lunch to the most southern tip of Canada - Point Pelee (half hour drive). A day trip to Pelee Island on the ferry may be just the ticket you are looking for (book ahead).You may feel like eating out at the many great restaurants in nearby Amherstburg. Perhaps you will have a candlelit dinner with roasted vegetables purchased fresh that day from local farm stands, coupled with a sizzling bbq'd steak or freshly caught fish (fishing guide/boat/contact available), while sipping on some local wine from one of the numerous wineries located in this wine region. You might want to wrap up the night sitting by the bonfire on the beach gazing at the stars, playing your own guitar or listening to music from the portable speakers available. Many board games are available as well as a wide assortment of movies to suit any interests. Nightgaze to see the many stars through the telescope set at the north star.

4 seasons a year - Daves Serenity is the place to find the hours needed to refresh your mind, body and spirit. Summer -all amenities listed-so peaceful and beautiful! Autumn - enjoy the bright gold red harvest moon as you sit by the bonfire on the beach to star gaze, roast marshmallows or perhaps the kids enjoy sparklers, see the gorgeous colours that coat our trees and foilage - the views that make autumn in this part of Canada so memorable. Winter - enjoy snowshoeing snowmobiling, ice fishing, cross country skiing, skating right in front of the deck, crisp winter walks along the ice covered lakes or just sit curled up with your favourite movie/book by the natural wood fireplace enjoying the peace and quiet. Spring - welcome the birds as they return to their own house on our deck -purple martins, barn swallows, loons, wood ducks, blue herons, baltimore orioles, cardinals, finches and even catch a glimpse of the bald eagles - hear the morning doves coo.

Whatever the season, whatever your need for a vacation, Daves Serenity is the place to be.

This is our special get away home that we are offering to share with you. We also enjoy it between rentals and if you arrive and have forgotten to pack anything, you are welcome to use our staples, just kindly replace them.

You must be over 28 years of age to rent.

Small pets may be welcome based on breed and number with prior approval by owner.
