"We were fortunate to be the very first tenants in Villa Serena. We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment there with our two teenage daughters for ten months. We especially appreciated the fact that we could walk to nearly everything or catch a bus a half-block away. Our favorite place to hang out was the courtyard, and we spent many lazy afternoons lounging by the pool! It always felt like a safe place for our daughters, and we loved coming home to Villa Serena." --Tom and Maya Frost
