Hi, Alex and I are doing all we can to live the dream and balance hard work with plenty of playtime and have been working on our Florida dream house in stages for quite a few years. It's where we come to visit family, friends and enjoy all the beauty of the Gulf Coast. Now we can invite guests to enjoy Belle Banane as much as we do.
Alex Palamarchuk purchased this house in 2004
It took one magical sunset on Pass-a-Grille beach, we fell in love with each other and that magnificent beach, so serenely beautiful. At times you still can have it all to yourself.
Belle Banane is all about the tropical garden, a resort-like setting with pool and heated spa, a fence enclosure for pet safety and security. The beautiful palm trees create a private sanctuary. Our beach community of Bella Vista is close enough to the Gulf of Mexico to enjoy its beautiful breezes, have our own beach access and then leave the traffic behind. The first floor is reserved for guests, offering the convenience of a condo and the space and privacy of a private home. Belle Banane comes stocked with all basic kitchen provisions, including spices, along with starter paper, bath and laundry products, pool-side robes, cushions, and everything you may need for the beach.
Great private getaway. Pool is two steps from master bedroom. All you could ever ask for in a kitchen. Enjoyed the large flat screen TV and rode the bikes. Can't wait until we return.
My wife and I spent our honeymoon in this amazing retreat almost a year ago. We still talk about how quiet and secluded the home is. The house is immaculate and the landscape is wonderful. We enjoyed having the pool all to ourselves, the convenience of having access to a full kitchen and the proximity of everything St. Pete Beach has to offer. Alex was excellent at responding to us when we had questions. If we ever get back to St. Pete will will definitely stay here.
This was our second trip to St.Pete Beach staying at this beautiful house. My mother is 82 yrs young but needs a little extra help if you know what I mean. We both love the open look and amenities of this home and when Mom needs her afternoon rest time around the pool or just watching her favorite cable show I can be at the beach in 5 min. and spend my time there knowing I'm close to the house only 5 min. away. We love the yard, the pool, the proximity to shopping and restaurants from casual to 5 star only minutes away. Caretaker Mr. Lopez is a gem, helped us with an oxygen delivery for Mom and checked on us when he was in the area. Alex the owner is always available, only a phone call away. We always bring Lola a small chihuahua and she loves chasing the little geckos in the yard. Thank you Alex for another great trip at your beautiful home. Debbie and Addie
My partner and I recently spent a week at lovely Belle Banane in St. Pete Beach. The owners greeted us personally upon arrival and gave us a complete tour of the home, its capabilities and amenities, which, by the way, were too numerous to fully capture in pictures! From the lovely cook's kitchen to the private pool oasis, this home provides the perfect backdrop for a perfect beach vacation for two. It was extremely clean and well-maintained. It was convenient to local attractions, the beach, the airport, and major roadways. The owner was in constant contact with us leading up to our visit, and then afterwards to ensure our stay was enjoyable. I would HIGHLY recommend this property for couples traveling to St. Pete Beach.
My Wife and I spent a week at this home and could not have been more pleased with the whole vacation. The Home is Beautiful with an open floor plan that looks out onto the secluded and private back yard. A gorgeous pool with hot tub, plenty of patio seating, a grill and all the privacy you need. The house was clean to the point you could eat off the floors. Well stocked, like a bed and breakfeast, it had everything we needed. Only minutes to the nearset beach and Beautiful Gulf Blvd in St. Pete. The owners were proffesional and courteous in all of our dealings with them.They set the example for how vacation Rentals should be offered. A must for any one who wants to get away, and have peace and quiet.
This was our first vacation home rental and the experience was wonderful.The owner Alex was exceptional! Everything was so easy and every detail thought out by Alex. The home was beautiful, well maintained and stocked with everything you could possibly need. We shopped for food at the local Publix just 5 min. away, even needed a Walgreens run only 3 min. away! The home was clean and current just like the pictures. The back yard was a tropical paradise, so private and all the beautiful flowers and trees very well cared for. The pool was perfect for a nice cooling dip! We ordered a pizza for delivery our first night from a recommended close by restaurant , it arrived hot and delicious in 20 min. My Mom and I went sight seeing along the coast 2 days during the trip, but most of all we loved the home so much we found ourselves just hanging by the pool and relaxing all day in paradise! We will be back!
