Local Services & Businesses
Sports & Adventure Activities
Villa comes well equipped not only with kitchen amenities but strollers if needed, pool towels, iron, hair dryer and more. Perfect location to Disney, nearby restaurants & a WalMart not 5 mins away. What a comfortable, clean & spacious place to return after a long day especially with 4 children. I can't say enough good things & will definitely be recommending this place to my friends and family who visit the area.
Always nice to receive such positive comments and happy to welcome back Carrie and her family at anytime. We have always tried to equip the property so as to make it a home from home, and to make sure we consider our little visitors.
Had a really good stay in Florida and house was very good nice and clean also plenty of seating outside at pool, as regular visitors to Florida we would highly recommend this villa as one to stay at. Owners were very helpful with any enquiries we had, loved it will be back😀
Clean and well appointed
Nice stay and accommodations. We did have to buy a few items I thought would likely be there (like hand soap) but overall everyone enjoyed.
We were a little disappointed to receive our first 4 star rating in 10 years just because there was no hand soap on the premises. We rent our home, as a 'self catering property' which is very well equipped, and many past guests have made that very comment, as you will see from our previous reviews. We travel a lot ourselves and will always take toiletries with us, we thought that was the norm for travellers, in particular if self catering, these comments do appear to be one of those cases whereby you cannot please everyone all the time.
We throughly enjoyed our stay at this beautifully well kept villa. We were impressed with all the extra supplies that we found on arrival; extra garbage bags, dish soap, washing powder and cold bottles of water which were a great find after a long journey.
The pool area is fabulous and has a wonderful view over the lake. We can’t fault this villa at all, the decor is superb all the rooms were spotless and the whole villa has a super feel to it.
We would highly recommend a stay here. We loved it !! We will look forward to booking again with such kind and considerate owners.
Thank you and pleased you enjoyed your stay
Great House, Great Location
The house was great, so much room and communal space. We loved the Pool and the view across the lake. Lots of wildlife to see. The area was very quiet and peaceful.
The house was clean, well equipped and obviously cared for. All correspondence with the owners and manager was thorough and really speedy.
A great location for exploring the theme Parks, Orlando or as a base for the surrounding areas.
September 2017 Family holiday
Lovely property outlook over lake. South facing sunny all day. Property kept in good order. Beds comfortable. Made good use of Jaccuzi in evenings. Holiday not affected by Hurricane Irma and no damage. Will return again. Only issue maybe would have liked some advise from management team. Definately will retun to Bellavida villa.
Mrs Stewart and her family were excellent guests and are welcome back at anytime. We are always pleased when our guests enjoy their stay at the villa. Hurricane Irma was highly publicised and had many people concerned, and rightly so, we agree with the point made about Hurricane advice as we spoke to these guests ourselves on a call, whilst they were in residence. If you live in an area where this type of phenomena are common place at certain times of the year then you do to some extent take them for granted, the locals tend to go about their daily lives, and take appropriate action when needed or are advised by the media/local government. It is therefore just as important we make all our guests more familiar with such environmental situations and have already taken steps to ensure in future that advice is available to all our guests. The more common affects of these tropical storms on inland areas such as Orlando is the increase in wind speed and heavy rain, and they do pass over pretty quickly.
The villa is located in Kissimmee within minutes of the Disney Parks, Universal Studios, Islands of Aventure, Legoland, Seaworld and many other attractions. It is situated just off highway 192 (behind Medieval Times). A 24 hour Walmart Supercentre is within easy walking distance, with many shops and restaurants also close by on highway 192. Cocoa Beach (Atlantic Coast near the Kennedy Space Centre ) is approximately one hours drive East along the 192, and the Gulf Coast West toward Tampa, Clearwater area 2 hours drive, again via 192 and the I4. Busch Gardens a theme park and zoo near Tampa is approximately 2 hours drive. Malls such as the Florida Mall, Mall at the Millenia, and Premium outlets is available and only a short drive away.
