Guestbook comments from the manager
We LOVE Villa Bella. We have stayed in many homes in Destin over the past 8 years...even Captains Quarters here in Beach Retreat, two homes in Maravilla, one home in Avalon, two homes in Crystal Beach and a condo in Emerald Dunes. Villa Bella is our favorite and it is the most comfortable home we have experienced. The furnishings are beautiful, practical and suit our lifestyle well. Everything here is perfect so far. Thank you for taking time with us and our many questions.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
We loved Villa Bella and already miss it! It is very clean and well maintained. The layout is perfect (large kitchen, three bathrooms)...perfect for two families traveling together. It is steps away from the pool and about one minute to the beach. Perfect location!! Can't say enough great things about the property manager, Kathy...awesome customer service and easy to work with! Thank you so much!

Spring Break 2014

  • 5 of 5
We often stay in Cottage Retreat, but this was our first time in Villa Bella. It was lovely. The owners have done a wonderful job supplying the things you need to be comfortable and to enjoy your stay. It is nicely decorated, the furniture is comfortable, and it is well maintained. Mike and Kathy are the perfect rental agents. They are responsive to any need or request and are always pleasant and efficient. We don't rent through anyone else when we are in Destin. Our BIG family Spring Break was a great success!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5
In short, we had a great experience with our rental in Miramar Beach. The property description was accurate and we found the house to actually be in better condition then we expected. The house was plenty big enough for our party of 9. The owner/property manager was very easy to work with and promptly answered any phone calls, texts, or emails that we sent her.

I had never been to the Destin area before and my wife found this property online. I was a little apprehensive about the area. I found the area to be awesome. The property is located east of the main Destin area and it is absolutely great. The beach was perfect and the private beach service was much appreciated.

In short, we would recommend this property to anyone who wants to take their family or children to the beach.

the most amazing family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had the most amazing family vacation. We could not have stayed in a better
place. The house was so cozy, clean, and so very well stocked. From the planning
stages all the way through checking out everything was super easy and handled
with such excellence. We definitely plan to come back! You cannot beat Destin's
beach or this lovely home

Pre Thanksgiving Escape

  • 5 of 5
The pictures showed everything just like it was. Place was immaculate. A lot of room for a big family or group. The distance to the beach was a short walk that was really short. Not like some of the others on the web. Only wished that we could have stayed longer.
