Overview

Bellavida Townhome Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Enjoy your Disney vacation in luxury! Stay in this beautiful 3BR / 2.5BA townhome in the sought after Bellavida Resort just minutes from Disney and other attractions. All the comforts of home without all the work!

Bellavida Resort, Italian for 'Beautiful Life,' features a collection of inspired family vacation homes surrounded by conservation areas and community lakes. The barrel-tiled roofs and colorful exteriors will remind you of being in the Mediterranean. This gated community boasts several fountains and waterfalls, including an impressive 25-foot waterfall that greets you just beyond the gates. The 6,000 square foot Italian-inspired clubhouse offers many activities as well, including a fitness center and zero-depth pool.

Why the Owner Chose Bellavida: The weather, area parks and attractions, and restaurants speak for themselves. However, after visiting the beautiful and peaceful Bellavida Resort, we instantly knew that it did not get any better for us. Our first family vacation in our new second home brought us a surprise. Our days spent at the resort were our favorite days of the vacation; even over the days spent at the amusement parks and ocean. We found that a good balance of days spent in and out of the resort made our trip a relaxing, affordable, and unforgettable one for the whole family. The resort sits in an excellent and sought after location. However, once in the gates of Bellavida you will feel that you have left the bustling surroundings and entered a relaxing island - the reason you went on vacation in the first place. Ahhhhh!

The Unique Benefits of this Townhome: We enjoy days at the resort pool, as well as days at the parks. We found that there is nothing quite like relaxing after a day at the parks in front of the flat screen TV while the kids continue to burn their endless energy in the private in-ground house pool just opposite the sliding glass door. Outside the gates of the resorts are numerous other activities available such as golfing, fine dining and shopping. In about an hour drive to the east or west we enjoy the benefits of the beaches. Relaxing days at the ocean, or even watersports such as parasailing, tours, jet ski rentals, snorkeling, scuba diving, cruises, or kayaking make the short drive well worth the trip. Airboat rides are also a short driving distance from Bellavida. There is something here for everyone!

About Owner/Manager

We, Steve and Carol, were born, raised, and currently reside in the Chicagoland area. We both visited the Kissimmee area and Disney for the first time as adults, and absolutely fell in love with the seemingly infinite vacation possibilities available in the area. We have seven children ranging in age from 4 to 13 years old, so needless to say we understand the importance of a good vacation! The full kitchen, laundry room, and other home amenities make this the most comfortable, affordable, and enjoyable way to stay! While meeting for coffee at a Chicagoland Dunkin Donuts on a cold, snowy, and frigid day in February 2010, the ridiculous idea of purchasing a vacation home in Florida came to mind. The following hours, days, weeks, and months of perseverance made this crazy dream a surprising reality when we purchased this Bellavida home. Built in 2007, but purchased by us in 2010, we fully furnished the home, including all furniture and appliances. Knowing that the home would have to be used as a short-term rental (to make it affordable to us), renters were at the forefront of our decision-making process when outfitting our second home. This investment/vacation home has been a dream come true.

Owner's Response: We strive to make everyone's stay a 5 star experience. I wish there was a more specific complaint about the community so I could properly address it with the Home Owners Association representatives. With a recent change in HOA management I hope that this is just an issue that will be worked out in time. We want everyone staying to have a great vacation and will continue to do everything within our power to make that happen.

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having you! I wish I knew why it was only a 4 star review and not a 5 star. I hoped we did everything we could to make your stay enjoyable. We even extended it at no charge when your flight was canceled due to weather. I hope you would stay with us again.

Beautiful and Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My family and I truly enjoyed our time at this wonderful Townhouse. Renting with Steve and Carol was great, they always responded in a timely matter to all my emails and questions. The pictures show exactly how great the townhouse is, very well decorated and taken care of. The private pool was the perfect size for my family to cool off in after a day at the parks. The community centre was close by and very clean. The Wi-Fi worked well and the kids didn't have to go a week without their electronic which made them very happy. I will definitely rent this house again and have recommended it to friends. Thank you Steve and Carol for sharing your home with us.

Beautiful. Very up-to-date accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Very lovely with all the comforts of home and more. The private, screened-in pool was a huge hit! We were able to pack light, as we took full advantage of the washer & dryer. Having a full kitchen was so convenient and saved us a lot of money. The town home was very roomy and having 2-1/2 bathrooms was a plus! The car ride to any Disney park was quick and easy. Can't wait to book our next stay!

April in Florida!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at your'e property the last weekend in April. We were attending a large sporting competition at Disney. It was so peaceful to comeback "home" after a grueling day at the packed Milk House at Disney. The pool was clean and beautiful! The place was very modern and beautifully decorated. It was a home away from our home. I would absolutely come back again!

Thanks again for everything!
