Want to cook? You have a kitchen stocked with more than the normal vacation property low budget pots and pans. Instead, you have enough cookware to enjoy a little gourmet cooking as you sip your wine with friends. Don’t want to cook? That’s great too, because you’re a few hundred feet to Pier Park’s numerous eateries where you can enjoy a different restaurant all week long. After the sunset and happy hour, you can be at dinner in just a minute or two.

Every touch is accounted for to ensure your vacation is perfectly prepared as you sit back, relax and enjoy the Bella Vista!

The best!

  • 5 of 5

1209 West was everything we expected. Clean, close to everything you could possibly need and felt just like home. Mitch was absolutely awesome. We had 2 problems upon arriving at the unit, which neither were a big deal but Mitch resolved very quickly. Wifi was down and cable wouldn't work in the living room area. Mitch handled those for us while we were out enjoying the beach. I couldn't have asked for a better experience with both the condo and the owner.

Beautiful condo - outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just beautiful! Thanks Mitch for sharing your home with us. The style and décor are that of a true beach home & really enhanced our experience. I should also mention the condos are well manicured and kept up and have onsite security. The pools were also very large and not rowdy or crowded when we were there. The view from the condo is just breathtaking and the location is fantastic. You can hear the ocean at night even with the sliders closed. When sitting on the balcony you can hear the ocean and the sounds of the live entertainment from Pier Park. You do need to be prepared to walk quite a bit. The parking was not an issue at all, but it is across the street with a skywalk connecting the condos and then you need to walk to the elevator bank then down to the end of the hall (loved being at the end though, very private). The beach was just beautiful, soft white sand and the water was so clear, I was really surprised by that. We saw various fish in the water every day. There are 2 beach chairs included but that was kind of a fiasco so we didn't use them. They are about 6" next to other beach chairs so you either have to want to be that close to strangers, or hope the people around you don't show up. Plus the beach attendants aren't prompt about setting up and often times tear down earlier than we would have wanted to leave. We tipped them for the chairs but it was the worse $20 we spent, they gave us a crummy location for the week then we found out they actually told us the wrong chairs were ours. We brought our own chairs & sat near the public beach which was right next door, a real bonus. The one thing we didn't like was the constant helicopter tours that go up and down the beach, they really diminish the beach atmosphere. Also another surprise was the cruising that goes on every day & night with cars cranking up their subwoofers so loud the whole building vibrates, I'm not sure what the obsession is but it happens every day. Highly recommend Dusty's restaurant and Oishi's for reasonable prices & great food. Pineapple Willie's was delicious but the prices are higher. Also, walk the pier at dusk, we saw the dolphins feeding right off the pier & a fisherman catch a shark! It was just amazing, we had a fantastic experience! We also rented JetSki's through PCB rentals (the hut at the condo), you need to go to the marina to go on the tour but it is a 2 hour tour & totally worth it!
