Bella Vita is an amazing vacation getaway. Over 2500 sq. ft. of modern living space steps from one of the most pristine beaches in the U.S. The well maintained and manicured gated grounds resemble a quaint Italian village. There are two pools overlooking the ocean and a very nicely appointed work out facility. Bella Vita is a relaxed setting with no hi-rise structures for miles. Fabulous restaurants, bike and kayak rental, home-made ice cream shop, health food store, bakery, 30A paved bike/jogging trail and convenience items within easy walking distance.
Imagine waking up to the sites and sounds of the surf from the fourth floor master suite. Cooking in the gourmet kitchen is a delight but enjoying dinner and drinks with your family and friends on the spacious balcony while taking in the in the gorgeous sunsets create the real and lasting memories.
New in 2014 carpet, living room furniture, washer & dryer and dishwasher. Flat screen TVs and Blu-Ray DVD players throughout with XBOX 360 / Kinect for our guest's use as well. There is a master suite and two large bedrooms each with their own private bathroom. The master suite and one other bedroom have king beds. The remaining bedroom has full sized mattress bunk beds with trundle.
We have three fantastic kids a skitzofrantic dog and a cat that adopted us. We live in the heart of America in Lawrence KS, although we are not KU fans. For a short time we lived next to Wrigley Field in Chicago and enjoyed it immensely but grew tired of the weather and the traffic.
Not many ocean or mountain views in Kansas so we spend time vacationing between Bella Vita and an old mining ghost town in Tin Cup Colorado where we have a cabin (cabin may be too romantic of a word, more like a shack but we love it just the same!). We are low key but really enjoy meeting new people and making lasting connections literally all over the world.
Michelle purchased this condo in 2010
There are so many great things about the location from our perspective. One of the main reasons we chose 30A is that we can drive to it if we need a beach fix. However, there are two airports, Panama City and Destin, that serve the area if we have to get there faster. The beaches are amazing, the water is warm, the condo/grounds are kept in immaculate shape, but more than anything the people are the nicest you will find ANYWHERE!!
I cannot tell you what a wonderful time we had last week. We loved the condo/the grounds/the beach/pool so much. It was a much needed change of pace from Destin. We are definitely hooked! We are interested in renting the same week next year. Do you have it available and what would need to be done to reserve that. Thanks again for sharing your vacation home with us.
We have just returned from our second stay in this condo at Bella Vita. I honestly cannot think of one negative of this place. The condo itself is gorgeous and the pictures don't do it justice. Working with the owners are very easy. The grounds of Bella Vita are immaculate and peaceful. There are not very many units rented in this complex, so it's literally like you have the place to yourself, even in the busy summer months. We definitely will be back to this condo again!
Another year spent at this fabulous condo and we were not disappointed! The condo was just as great as it was from our last year's stay. The weather was great and only had one rainy day which we spent to enjoy lunch over at Stinky's Fish camp. One drawback was that the ocean was dealing with some sea lice. With this we stay around the pool the majority of the time, but wasn't a bad thing since the area wasn't crowded at all. The complex was going through some renovations which was a bit noisy during the day, but nothing too severe to ruin the trip.
It's always sad when our trip comes to an end and after we left the condo we received a call from Michelle after a few hours away. Turns out we accidentally left one of our bags in the room with some valuables that the cleaning group had found. We kinda panicked since we were 5 hours away, but Michelle eased our concerns by letting us know she would take care of it by getting our bag shipped to us. And 2 days later we received our bag with our valuables as promised! We thank you and your cleaning crew for being so helpful in getting our items returned to us!! A great condo with truly great owners and staff!! We can't wait until next year for another great stay!!
First a "Thank You" to the owners for letting us enjoy their unit. This is our 5th year staying at Bella Vita and we are never disappointed. The units are always gorgeous, clean and spacious. We love the laid back atmosphere and not so crowded beach. The views from the balcony are beautiful. We enjoyed sitting out and drinking coffee every morning. We also love that you can walk to a convenient store, souvenir shop, bakery shop, ice cream shop and even get great pizza and sandwiches at the Irish Pub across the street. Will definitely be back next year.
We love the 30A area. We found Bella Vita last year walking down from the Adagio. I'm so glad we decided to switch this year. The grounds are beautiful. The condo is big! It was clean and well maintained but we did have a huge wood roach we had to kill but I think that probably had to do with the construction on the near by building. I didn't care for how much freezer room the owner takes up. There is a small ice maker in the frig so we were buying bags of ice and had a hard time storing because owner leaves food there. They would be better off taking one of those small cabinets by the bar sink and installing an ice maker. Condo has awesome view of ocean. We hardly had anyone at the pool so its like you had it to yourself. We did use the grills. One was not working but they had 3 and they were not crowded. Beach is great as usual. I found the beach chair service day one and had chairs ready every morning. Beach area in front of Bella is not crowded like Adagio. We did run into June grass at the beach the last few days which makes the water close to shore full of seaweed but you are at the ocean. The only compliant is the complex was working on the entire building A facade so workers took up the only few outside parking spaces(we have a large pickup).The work wasn't as disruptive as I thought being by the pool but I do think I heard them cat call some women at the beach. We didn't eat out much around the area like in the past but we walked to the icecream shop every night and it was just as good as we remember. We would recommend this place especially for a large group.
This condo is absolutely wonderful! We've stayed at several places throughout the years & this is by far the nicest place we've ever stayed! Everything was so perfect. The pools & beach was gorgeous! Going back this summer! Can't wait!
This condo is immaculate! It is well furnished, beautiful, and "user friendly". The bunk bedroom is complete with wonderful toys for the children. (In fact, I am hoping to find some of these same toys online for my grandchildren for Christmas!) The beach was perfect and not crowded at all. The owners were extremely helpful and considerate. We especially enjoyed walking across the street, renting bikes, and riding down the bike trail on 30A. We also walked across to Nick's and had delicious meals! We enjoyed our stay and recommend this condominium with no hesitation! We cannot wait to return!
