Nice Property

  • 4 of 5

Our stay went well. Great floor plan and plenty of room for several families. Everything worked as advertised and we had no issues that required us to contact the property manager. The place was starting to show its age with a little wear and tear but nothing too bad (and I am very picky). We would stay here again.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year renting through Barefoot and our second year to stay at Bella Vita. We can't wait to come back! It's such a beautiful area and the house was perfect for us! Jarod as awesome! The only thing we could have used that wasn't provided was a salad spinner. Not much to complain about there!

What an Amazing Trip

  • 5 of 5

It was my 40th birthday week celebration and we could not have been happier with the house, the location or Jared, the property manager. We rented bikes (and felt like we were kids again) and were able to ride them everywhere to get to restaurants, shops and to the beach. The house was plenty big for several adults who did not want to be living (even if only temporarily) on top of each other and again the area had everything you could need. It even rained a couple afternoons and we were very comfy lounging in the living room. It was a very relaxing and well needed vacation that was made perfect with a wonderful home, area to stay in and a very easy to deal with rental company. We will definitely be back!

Love Seacrest Beach Resort

  • 3 of 5

We rented Bella Vita last summer with a fairly large crew, 6 adults & 7 kids. The bed arrangements worked out fine and overall the house was what we needed. We do have a serious complaint about the design of the house though. The 2nd floor a/c was designed to cool the 3rd floor tower room also. HUGE mistake. The space is essentially unlivable until midnight when it cools down. They did have a window unit thingy that tried to help cool it but it just did not get below 90 degrees up there until late night. Ugh, it was uncomfortable... My other comment would be regarding the comforter in the master on the first floor... It was totally ick. There were mystery stains all over it. The shortage of linens and kitchen towels was noticed. Also, the lack of usable pots/pans in relation to the amount of people the home can sleep just doesn't add up. A pan that holds less than a pound of ground beef in a house that sleeps 13?

The laundry room was very clean and we enjoyed the grill.

The new neighbor directly across the street tried to get into one of our cars one night around midnight (the teens that we're still awake heard him banging on the windows of the car and woke us up). He was royally ticked b/c he insisted there were assigned spaces and we took his spot in front of his house. It clearly states in the house instructions, and the patrol man confirmed, there are no assigned spots on the street. A real bozo that guy.

Bottom line, we have stayed in better in our 6 years visiting the area. Everything except the BIG a/c issue & bozo neighbor should be an easy fix for next summer.

Owner's Response: This owner of Bella Vita is very courteous and conscience of the comfort of their guests as are we at Barefoot Vacations. This is the first and only complaint received regarding the 3rd floor comfort. As with any home, heat rises which would naturally make the 3rd floor warmer than the other floors. The owner has provided a free-standing air conditioner (which is vented through the window) for comfort. Our Company asks guest to notify us immediately upon arrival of any cleanliness, linen issues, etc. Linens to accommodate 2 times the number the home sleeps are provided for our guests. There is also a full size washer and dryer with start up laundry detergent for use. There isn't anything we can do 4 months after the stay. Additional pots and pans have been added to the kitchen. As for the parking, there are 4 parking spaces at the home (2 in front of the home and 2 in the back) which is ample parking for our guests. While there are no assigned parking spaces in Seacrest, it is respectful and courteous, to not park in front of another home. We would ask that future guests compare this review with the other positive reviews of previous guests. This is a lovely home with a hard-working homeowner that tries to ensure their home is welcoming and comfortable for guest.

Dad and teenaged kids from Ky

  • 5 of 5

House and neighborhood was perfrect. Tons of space. Very nicely decorated. Just far enough away from everything that you can relax or be right in the middle of everything in 5 minutes or less. Kids had a blast and so did dad. If you are looking for a vacation spot in Florida and don't want to be in a condo with everybody from your hometown right next door, this place is awesome.We will be back for sure. Thanks
