CASA BELLA - AN ARCHITECTURAL BEACHFRONT MASTERPIECE WITH POOL AND SPA

Redington Shores Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 gulf front master suites, 2 bedrooms, guest room, 2 master baths, 2 1/2 baths

This massive concrete/stucco architecturally significant beachfront villa occupies over 1/3 acre on the Gulf of Mexico in an exclusive area of Redington on Tampa Bay areas barrier islands. With waves lapping on shore less than 100 feet away, the sights, the sounds, and the ambience of the sea are omnipresent. Staggering views from the wrap around balcony/terrace paralyze. Formal entertaining from the gulf side living room complete with wet bar and access to the kitchen grill is as smooth as a gulf breeze. Stunning vistas from the huge pool side patio overwhelm yet the casual comes forth from a poolside barbecue serviced from a butlers kitchen and den wet bar. An elevator allows for complete ADA accessibility. First floor master bath with whirlpool & steam/shower and second floor master bath with sauna. Full computer station in the office/guest room, along with fax and wireless connect. Two car garage. Street side terrace offers inland/sunrise views.The sunsets are spectacular!

Local Attractions: The Redington area offers a wide variety of dining, shopping and entertainment very accessible. Children and teens can ride the area trolley from St. Pete Beach to Clearwater and to Tyrone Mall for a minimal daily fee. The Clearwater Aquarium, Indian Shores Wild Bird Sanctuary, Dolphin Watch and of course Smugglers Reef Miniature Golf are just a few of the attractions luring kids (adults) of all ages. St. Petersberg has weekly concerts, art shows and events for all to enjoy along with the most complete Salvidor Dali Museum in North America. Major theme parks, Disney World, Universal Studios, and Sea World, are only 1 hour and 30 minutes and Bush Gardens is only 45 minutes. But the beach, 'One of the Top Ten Beaches in Florida,' is just out the back door and once you get you toes in the sand, you may find it difficult to pull away. Yet, everyone should try to stop at least once at Madeira Beach's world famous 'Candy Kitchen.' It is worth the wait!

The Beach: The reason for the 'Ten Best Beaches in Florida,' classification is immediately apparent to the first time visitor. Daytime from 'Casa Bella' offers splendid dolphin shows, great heron, sandpiper and seagull watching, and, of course, the exhilaration customary in the grand pelican fishing forays. A peaceful stroll at waters edge reveals one of the great shelling beaches on Floridas Gulf Coast. This special beach has plenty of flat terraced sand space for beach volleyball (provided), football, softball, or whatever while others sunbath. The gradual sloping waterfront is ideal for infants and youngsters (supervised) while offering adults a plethora of water sports from snorkeling to skim boarding. When sand & surf is too much, a refreshing dip in the pool rejuvenates. Yet, awe inspiring vistas seem to explode on the horizon at the end of the day. Punctuating this view, coconut palms and a beautiful private pier add splendor and depth to the horizon. It is simply spectacular!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you for the nice card you sent recently. We liked seeing what seems to be the original architect's drawing of the house, with a structure, now gone, {owner note: new stucco makes a formerly sided feature disappear} beside the driveway and different siding on the facade.

My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay, even including a couple of cold, blustery days. I think that the beach was quite a bit larger when we left, with a lot of sand brought in by the surf. While we were there, Florida Dept. of Geology came to measure erosion, and it seemed to us that, actually, a new sand bar was starting to form just off the edge of the beach, a little like what happened to Tigertail Beach on Marco, where a new island was formed in the shallows. Time will tell, of course, but I hope your beach will not be effected, since it is just about PERFECT!

{sic}...Chris and Jane couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. {sic} entire staff was a plesure to deal with.

Thank you again for a wonderful vacation, and a perfect place to celebrate my husband's 80th birthday. It was nice of you to offer Casa Bella to us again next year, but at our age we don't plan too far ahead. Its a great idea, though, and I won't forget it"

A wonderful home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5
We celebrated my Moms 85th birthday at Casa Bella ! Since it was a very special occasion for a very special lady, we wanted to find a spot where she would be comfortable and feel like a Queen. We had stayed in the area before but were looking for certain things to make her stay more enjoyable. Casa Bella provided everything we were looking for and so much more.

I fell in love at first sight and traveled down before booking our vacation to make sure that it was 'the spot'. Heidi and Art were easy to deal with and were a big part of us wanting to stay at their home. Though we never spoke via phone, Art and I emailed each other and I knew that this was the right situation for my family. They are charming and sincere homeowners.

Casa Bella is a wonderful home in a beautiful location. Though we were not looking to have a pool, much to our surprise ,we used it everyday! The pool and hot tub were very inviting and surrounded by lovely gardens ------- heavenly.

Casa Bella is large but never felt too big for the 5 of us. It was comfortable and quiet with plenty of room to stretch out and get some rest from the day to day pace .

The staff was a pleasure. They answered all our questions and were quick to respond to anything that came up. They offered to shop for us and show us around the area (but no one wanted to leave that piece of heaven!)

So, from the bottom of our hearts , we want to thank you all so much for the memory of a lifetime. We hope to come back next year !

Best to all

Owner's Response: R & J were a pleasure to accommodate not only for their special occasion, but also, for the occasion of their own vacation. As R & J and most of our guests appreciate, pulling away from this heavenly site can be the biggest issue experienced during ones stay. We always strive to provide our guests with the best Casa Bella has to offer in order to create a most memorable vacation.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure to stay at this absolutely beautiful location. The outside pool and patio area and the view are absolutely stunning here and the beach is so uncrowded it was like you had your own private beach. The owners are great to work with and answer any questions, the home manager Dawn is awesome and took care of any questions we had about the home. We had one minor issue with heating the hot tub but the owners quickly fixed the issue. The home is well stocked with everything you could ever need, plenty of towels, linens etc even down to sunscreen if you forgot to bring your own. We only ate out one night during our stay because nobody ever wanted to leave the beautiful view but there are plenty of restaurants to choose from - we opted for takeout delivery instead so we could watch the most amazing gulf sunsets from the hot tub. Our evening ritual with the kids was to walk down the beach and catch baby fiddler crabs and then let them go..they loved this and thought it was so cool. Everyone went shore fishing and had a blast. One night a huge school of dolphin decided to play right in front of the home..everyone loved watching them. We would absolutely recommend this property to friends and relatives and would love to return at some point to Casa Bella.

Beautiful house, wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5
We were fortunate enough to stay at Casa Bella for 10 days and had a wonderful time. The house is unique and beautiful. We used the pool everyday and the hot tub every night. Being steps away from the beach was perfect fun for our children (and us!) Everything was clean, well maintained and it was just the perfect setting for a relaxing vacation. Although it is close to restaurants and things to do, we never once ate out because we enjoyed grilling out by the pool and eating dinner on the patio and watching the sun set. We did take some time and visited Disney World, the Sunken Gardens and a few of the beautiful parks and beaches. Most of our time was spent swimming, building sand castles and enjoying family time. It was one of our best vacations yet since we have had children. Our children are 2 and 4 and thought it was the coolest house ever! We definitely hope to come back!

Owner's Response: We really enjoy hearing from guests who create quality family vacations while using Casa Bella as the perfect setting. Many of Casa Bella's guests appreciate the proximity to many attractions including the theme parks of Orlando along with the coastal nature preserves. And even though Casa Bella is in the midst of legions of great restaurants, it is quite frequent that guests prefer to occupy the "best table in the house," the poolside seating on the patio. We do feel honored to offer Casa Bella as a wonderful vacation destination for family fun and lasting family memories.

home on the gulf/

  • 5 of 5
/ As one of the family having visited Casa Bella i add that the attraction to the gulf beach itself was strong. The nature of the beach/shore was involving,easy-going and interesting to be involved in. The walk into the surf was easy and safe. We all enjoyed the variety of shorebirds and the dolphin we saw. The gulf waters were relaxing and fun. Of course sunsets and simply looking out upon the gulf was enthralling. All in all/ a relaxing time at the beach. Fun/
