About Erika

My name is Erika, I am Peruvian but have lived in England for the last 25 years. My husband and I have owned Bella Vista for more than 10 years and we have been letting the cottage as a holiday home for many years.

Our holiday cottage, Bella Vista, is a home from home, perfectly suitable for a family (we do stay ourselves on a regular basis), with all the facilities that we think you'll need for a comfortable stay. We have a extensive library from which you can borrow books and return later if possible, we love the beach at Southwold and like the relaxed feel of Suffolk.

We are a family that loves travelling and enjoy exploring the many places near Bella Vista, we hope you enjoy your visit and record your adventures in our guest book.

Erika purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Erika chose Yoxford

Bella Vista is unique and perfectly located for visiting the local attractions.

What makes this cottage unique

Located in front of the village cricket ground and with a view of the church from our shutters in the enclosed patio, you can enjoy the cottage inside and out.

Lovely cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time at the cottage and we always love it. Ideal for all the family (slightly steep staircase for children though) Ideal elderly visitors as toilet downstairs and one upstairs. Am booking again as also well situated for all the coastal areas. Lovely private courtyard garden and large front garden so when sun out plenty of places to sit.
