Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms (2 Ensuite), 1 King, 1Queen, 4 Twin + Sofa bed, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 8-9

La Bella Vita is our Italian-style villa featuring 4 luxury bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in the highly desirable community of Tuscany/Calabria. A perfect location for your family vacation to Disney. It is situated in Kissimmee and just 10 minutes from Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Calabria is a quiet community within easy access to the express way 192, I4 & the US27. Extremely convenient to take you to nearby shops and restaurants, Orlando International Airport, Sanford Airport, Universal Studios, Sea World, Lego Land and Florida’s amazing beaches! From the moment you arrive at Calabria, Florida’s woodlands are literally on the doorstep. Our private west facing pool and free standing mood lit 6 person hot tub overlooks a conservation area, especially inviting after a fun filled day at Disney! Our villa is exquisitely furnished to a luxury standard to ensure an unforgettable family vacation.

La Bella Vita is perfect for those relaxing barbecue evenings whilst watching the sun fade away on the lounger. A stunning pool deck and luxury furnishings to relax and dine offers you the ultimate setting for a perfect alfresco experience. A covered lanai dining area with light/fan takes you through from breakfast to barbecue time! The use of the premium gas barbecue is at your convenience.

Unlike many Disney World rentals our home has two large living rooms and the villa has over 2400 square feet of total space plus an additional large game room. There is more than enough space to enjoy vacationing with your family yet still find some personal space for yourself when you want. This is the perfect location; close enough to Walt Disney World to make driving back and forth during the day and easy. Most families love taking an afternoon break at the villa and letting the kids swim and relax before heading back to Disney for a night of magic. But just far enough from the gate to make the rental costs not too pricey.

Games Room

Our fun packed Games Room will provide hours of entertainment with Table Soccer, Air Hockey and Pool and a great selection of toys including a play kitchen and drawing table for younger members in your party. Kids of all ages will enjoy spending some relaxing time just playing game with other people in your group.

Open Plan Living Room and Kitchen

The large informal sitting areas have Mediterranean floor tiling throughout with leather sofas, a coffee table, occasional tables and lamps, it is the perfect place to relax and socialize. A flat 55” screen TV offering American top 250 digital High Definition TV package, Sony Ipod/Iphone Docking Radio and Wireless 5mb internet facility is all in place for your entertainment. The living room offers pool views with a state conservation area behind the house so no other homes to look at. Just mother nature.

The kitchen is fully equipped and includes a refrigerator, over and cook top combo, dishwasher, coffee maker, microwave, crock pot and toaster.

The utility area has a large washing machine and separate tumble dryer as well as iron/ ironing board, vacuum cleaner etc.

The Master Bedroom

In the master bedroom you will find a beautiful dark wood King size bed with luxury bed linen, a ceiling fan for those warm evenings and a flat screen TV offering American top 250 digital High Definition TV package. The en-suite bathroom provides a peaceful sanctuary to relax in the spacious deep corner bath. It has an extended vanity unit with dual hand basin, large shower cubicle and WC along with a walk in closet. The master bedroom invites you in to the pool area via French Doors for that early morning dip.

Lounge and Dining Area

The Lounge area provides you with a quiet retreat to sit and relax on a comfortable sofa. The dining table provides seating for 8 for a more formal dining evening.

Bedrooms

All bedrooms have luxury bed linen and flat screen TV’s offering 70+ channels. Bedroom 2 has a queen size bed. Bedroom 3 and 4 are twin rooms. All bedrooms are also within easy access to a third family bathroom. For groups with small children, a pull out couch can also sleep someone.

About Lee Dozier

We are NJ based but travel often and love our home at Disney. Many happy hours of watching the kids swim while cooking out on the patio highlight every visit. We visited La Bella Vita and after staying there we looked for a similar home to purchase for as our own Disney World rental. We were ecstatic when we were able to buy La Bella Vita. Our family is looking forward to continuing to enjoy the Disney experience along for years to come. We love to have old and new friends come stay with us.

Lee Dozier purchased this villa in 2013

Why Lee Dozier chose Tuscany at Westside

For the Dozier's, our family vacation in La Bell Vita was a wonderful experience. We loved the location and the house was set up perfectly for a vacationing family to enjoy the numerous opportunities that are available in the Orlando area. My family loves Disney but prefers to come and go during the day and not be limited to staying at the park all day. The kids love to pop out and relax at our home swimming in the pool or just playing games. The ability for everyone to spread out within the house is just an awesome way to family vacation in Florida.

We love the fact that their family, after numerous vacations to Disney and many more yet to come with our young children, we decided we would like our own home offering the kind of luxuries you should be enjoying on vacation!!. The meaning of our villa name 'La Bella Vita' is 'life is beautiful'. When we stay at our home we enjoy the beautiful life that peaceful Calabria offers us yet still being close to all the excitement that Disney brings too.

What makes this villa unique

We absolutely adore the morning sun and swim and our alfresco breakfast times! Then time to chill out in the evenings with a dip in the hot tub whilst the barbecue food is sizzling.

A family vacationing in a home instead of a hotel, has so much more room to enjoy each other while not being on top of each other. A vacation rental usually give a family about three times the space at half the price.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a lovely stay we had at La Bella Vita. After staying four nights on a Disney resort, the villa was a welcome and relaxing change. It was actually the first time we relaxed properly on the whole trip! As soon as we walked in it felt like home. There was everything we needed (including a very lovely gift of bread, eggs and milk in the fridge) The kids adored the playroom and we couldn't get them out of there. They loved their own pool and the TVs in every room. Ace place!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Tamara, I'm glad your family had a Magical time. That's our goal, is to augment your Disney vacation. Thanks for letting me know about the lamp and glass. Knowing small items that need some attention lets us fix them quickly and keep them from becoming issues that affect others. We hope to see your family again the next time you visit Disney. Lee

Awesome property and location!

  • 5 of 5

This property was impeccably clean and well maintained. The pool and the jaccuzi were great with a nice amount of privacy from well place trees and no rear neignboors. Nice quiet neighboorhood with sidewalks for walking and riding bikes. Convenient to everything.

Nice house but not what I expected

  • 3 of 5

The house was nice and spacious for all 9 of us. We had to go to Target and purchase the bare necessities, like toilet paper, hand soap, dish washer soap, laundry soap. There were a few dead frogs in the house, one upstairs in a bedroom even. Raccoons got into the outside garbage cans with the lids on. The location was great and the neighborhood is quiet. It is near many great restaurants and shopping. I would rent again if the bare necessities were there, as in the many other rental homes I have stayed in.

Owner's Response: I've tried emailing you several times but I get no response. The morning prior to your arrival there was toilet paper in every bathroom, a brand new travel bar of soap at every sink, two dishwasher tabs under the sink in a container and two washing machine tabs in a container on the shelf. I'm not sure exactly what you were missing in terms of expendables? There were no frogs in the house during the walk through and we have never had frogs in the house previously. Frogs do not fly very often, so I'm not sure how they were getting up the stairs without some assistance. I would look closer to home and ask your kids if they were bringing in "pets" from the outside. If you were experiencing anything less than an ideal vacation you had the name and contact number of my manager who would have addressed any issue you had. As you were vacationing the week after the hurricane passed through Florida, many of the animals have been displaced and the town is working on solving that issue. If the trash lid is latched, the raccoons cannot open the trash can. Since you now are telling me you had more people in the house than you told me you had when you booked, I suspect you did not want us to know you had extra people staying over so you did not bring any of these issue up during your stay. You in now way allowed my manager the opportunity to address the issues or help you locate the amenities you were looking for.

Beautiful villa in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Fully equipped home from home. We have stayed in villas that were obviously rental homes but this one had a family touch. Ideal distance for Disney parks and lots of local restaurants and and supermarkets. Both the owner and management company were easy to communicate with and dealt with queries quickly and efficiently. Would definitely recommend to others.
