GREAT RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful apartment in a great area of Key West. Except for the oppressive heat, this would have been a perfect vacation. The accomodations were excellent. A really beautiful apartment with bright colors and high end finishes. The owner even has his own artwork on the walls available for purchase. Highly recommended!

PERFECT PLACE FOR A QUIET COUPLE!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed last week in this beautiful condo a 1/2 block off of Duval. It was away from all of the noise of the crazy nightlife, but close enough for you to get to and be a part of it. The condo was beautifully decorated with all of the amenities you could ever think of. While there are a few pools in the area you can pay for, our favorite was Dante's by the wharf. Don't go to Key West for the beaches, but definitely do go for fun and stay here!!

KEY WEST

  • 5 of 5
The condo was absolutely perfect in every way! It's in a great part of Key West that appeared to be fairly quiet at night. We rented bicycles which made getting around Key West very convenient. The condo is about a 3 minute bicycle ride from the Southernmost Beach and Cafe, and not more than a 10 minute ride from Mallory Square. Owners were very easy to do business with and everything about the condo is just as described in the listing. I would definitely recommend this place to anybody going to Key West!

ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was absolutely perfect, in every way!!! My husband and I spent a week at Bella Vita for our wedding week and will absolutely continue to go back for many years to come. It has all of the desired ammenities: comfy bed, great linens & towels, spacious bathroom and shower, internet & cable TV, fully stocked kitchen, and most importantly, accessibility to EVERYTHING!! Deb & Wolfgang (property owners) were extremely great to work with and were very accomodating!
Located at the opposite end of Duval Street from Sloppy Joes and the "main strip," in Old Town, the neighborhood was safe, quiet and elegant, yet still very accessible to everything. We rented bikes for the week which was, by far, the best mode of transportation on the island (and VERY reasonably priced - $110 for both of us for 8 days), which meant that with a quick 5 minute bike ride, we could be at the more touristy end of the island. The condo is literally steps from Duvall Street, 3 blocks from the Southern Most beach, and surrounded by fabulous restaurants. The avid foodies that my husband and I are, we didn't have one bad meal while on our trip, and generally dined at the restaurants within a 3-block radius of Bella Vita. While staying here, a new restaurant, Key West Pub, opened, and it's literally next door to the condo. Be sure to stop in there during your stay. The chef, Trent, prepares an amazing lobster slider that will keep you coming back for more! We also rode our bikes to Eaton Street Seafood Market and Fausto's (grocery store), and with the fully-stocked kitchen at the condo, we were able to prepare several fabulous meals ourselves too. There's also a CVS within walking distance too, for any last minute items which you many need/want. We frequented CVS for gallons of water and tons of sunblock!
The only qualm we had with the property was the patchy internet and TV signals. The internet worked best in the bedroom, and the TV signal was very patchy and often cut out for long periods of time. However, being on a trip to Key West, you shouldn't be interested in watching TV at all anyways, so it wasn't an urgent issue for us. Upon our arrival though, Kevin, the maintenance man, was fully aware of and working to resolve the internet/TV issues.
You surely won't be disappointed with your stay at Bella Vita and we HIGHLY recommend it to any/everyone!

VERY ENJOYABLE

This was the first time my husband and I have been to Key West. We enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend Bella Vita. It was very clean and very convenient to all activities/restuarants on the island.
