Why Angie & John Stockdale chose Bellavida Resort

Our aim has always been to provide a comfortable vacation rental in pristine condition and somewhere in which our guests would consider it to be a home from home, as you may see from our guests reviews we believe we have achieved just that. We endeavour to maintain and improve the villa and welcome feedback from guests.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is ideally located within a very peaceful oasis with well maintained gardens and sub tropical foliage, with camellia tree line streets. The resort is within a secure gated community, which is a common arrangement in Florida, the advantage being no through traffic leaving the streets very peaceful. The villa itself is built to a Spanish style, with a terracotta tiled roof, large covered porch entrance to the front and the buildings painted with warm Mediterranean type colours. The villa driveway can accommodate upto 4 cars. At the rear of the property is the enclosed pool, sun bathing area, which looks directly out onto a large lake. The lake attracts much of the local wildlife, with small deer, raccoons, alligators, turtles and numerous birds sighted.

The resort itself is easily accessed from the two main airports and provides easy egress to all that Orlando and surrounding areas have to offer, theme parks, shopping, restaurants, beaches that can be reached in about one hour etc.

This is the property you have been searching for!

  • 5 of 5

After losing countless hours of my life searching on homeaway for the perfect villa- I can honestly tell you that this is it! The photos whilst beautiful do not do the villa justice, its absolutely immaculately clean and beautiful. Fluffy white towels and crisp white bedlinen. Its a beautiful resort that feels very safe and friendly and it was a perfect location for all of the parks. Walmart is right next door so its handy for all essentials.

John and Angie are fantastic and so helpful-I felt like we had known them for years.

The management company are friendly and reply promptly to any calls/emails.

Our only complaint was that we were so busy exploring, we wish we had more time to spend at the villa. Its the most perfect villa we have ever rented!!

Exceeded Expectations - Wonderful Thanksgiving away from home

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough about how wonderful this rental is! From the minute we contacted the owner to the time we left, it was a wonderful experience. We were in town for a Thanksgiving and a family vacation.

The owners are wonderful and always very responsive and the best I’ve ever worked with.

The property will exceed your expectations with its beautiful decors the well equipped kitchen, the view, the game room, everything! TVS worked wonderful, Internet, - just couldn’t think of anything it’s missing! We have rented many listings through VRBO over the years and this is by far the best. This really makes you feel like you are in your “home away from home”. The owners have thought of everything to make your visit/trip comfortable and relaxing.

The location is wonderful for all the parts as well as shopping and eating. It was especially comforting to be in a gated community as well.

I would recommend this to anyone traveling as a family. Thank you John and Angie for making our family vacation wonderful!

We have always tried to ensure that we maintain our property to the highest standard and to be honest in the description of the home and the area, its nice to know that our guests agree from the many positive reviews we receive. Not all guests like to put pen to paper or make any comment, so thanks again to Cathy and Edward for taking the time to do so.

Fantastic, again!

  • 5 of 5

I can't recommend this villa highly enough, this is the 3rd time I have stayed at John and Angie's wonderful place in the sun.

Its in a superb location, clean, safe and with all the amenities you could ever want.

Close to all the parks, good restaurants and local shops. Spent more than 1 relaxing day just at the villa round the pool.

All the other reviews say it all. If you want a great place to stay whilst holidaying in Kissimmee, Orlando then look no further. Great villa, great rates and great owners.

Owner's Response: A gracious thanks to Colin and his family for choosing to stay with us again, we pride ourselves in offering what we state, a very beautiful, pleasant and comfortable home from home, fully equipped, immaculately clean and somewhere to really relax, but near enough to those attractions which Orlando, Florida has become famous. Many of our returning guests love to simply spend more time relaxing at the villa once they have done the usual round of theme parks or shopping trips. Bellavida is a quiet oasis in which you can simply sit and relax in the sun and let the world drift by.

Perfect villa, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

7 of us enjoyed a 2 week stay in this beautiful villa. It was the perfect place to relax after a busy day and we spent many evenings dining al fresco by the pool enjoying the lovely lake view and wildlife at the back of the villa.

The villa was immaculately clean and each room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable and equipped with everything you could need whilst on holiday.

The location of Bella Vida Resort was handy for all of the theme parks, malls and restaurants and the use of your SatNav certainly helped us find our way around easily.

All in all, we had the most amazing holiday in the most amazing accommodation!

Many thanks

Wonerful villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at John & Angie's beautiful home in the gated community of Bella Vida in Kissimmee.

The villa is exactly as described on the website, immaculately clean and tastefully furnished to a high standard. We have visited Orlando on several occasions previously and found the location of the villa and standard of the property were perfect for our holiday. We were a party of 4, so found the house very spacious with a bedroom & en suite each, but it would certainly accomodate a larger group of people comfortably too.

The pool area was ideal for relaxing, with good sunshine throughout the day, peaceful setting and overlooking the lake. We watched local wildlife including turtles, around the lake while having breakfast on the patio. The jacuzzi was a fun element also.

Having previously been in the Orlando area on holiday, we like the location of the Bella Vida estate, it really is within 20 mins of Disney, shopping, dining and International Drive. Local dining in downtown Kissimmee was excellent, as well as good resturaunts along H192.

Would definitely recommend this villa and would choose to stay here again on our next visit to Orlando.
