  • A Perfect Family Christmas Locale!

    "My family and I just finished a great weekend at John's condo. It was perfectly suited for what we needed! The condo slept 8 but was able to host more for presents and carols and other Christmas activities. It was much better appointed than I anticipated; plenty of flatware, glasses, bowls, etc. The tv was great for movies and games. We had a great time and the condo was perfect!"

  • Absolutely WONDERFUL stay!

    "This house is simply one of the best, coziest, wonderful places I have ever stayed PERIOD much less on VRBO. Anne is a wonderful host and had wine waiting for us when we arrived. The entire place was clean and accommodating. I would recommend this for families or for younger friends! We threw a bachelorette party here and my sister was SO pleased with the area. It is beautiful and quite, but the house is big enough to be loud inside. The hot tub is in a perfect location and a beautiful scenery cascades off of the porch. I would tell ANYONE to stay here!! Simply could not ask for a better time."

  • Exquisite Home & Views

    "This home is so large and exquisite that at first you may feel it is too grandeur but it will quickly feel quite homey and comfortable. I was with a small group but this home would easily accommodate a very large group. The views are amazing with ample windows to enjoy. It is not in the middle of the city but so very close to everything but with the added luxury of the home, the pool, the privacy and the lake. It is a great place for a group to gather all in one place for a vacation that is roomy enough to be comfortable. Even for a small group you cannot beat the value & luxury you receive renting from the Salazar's verses renting a hotel."

Bella Vista Travel Tips

Tranquility and Beautiful Scenery at Bella Vista Vacation Rentals

The name Bella Vista aptly describes the incredible scenic beauty of the region. Home to seven lakes and tucked away in the foothills of the Ozarks, Bella Vista is a warm and welcoming community that is perfect for a relaxing vacation. The many lakes attract fishermen throughout the year. All except for two are no-wake lakes which make the fishing exceptional. Golfers have seven 18-hole golf courses to choose from. There are also two smaller 9-hole courses and a family putting course. This makes Bella Vista one of the most popular golfing retreats in the region. It is a great vacation destination for families. You can spend hours out on the lakes, fishing, paddling and swimming. Each of the lakes has a boat launch and several picnic areas around its shores. In the summertime, you can spend many leisurely hours relaxing at the lakeside.

Finding Your Way to Bella Vista Cabins

Bella Vista is a small that has only recently become an official city. It was originally incorporated as a retirement community in the mid-1960s, hence the many golf courses in the area. Because of its scenic beauty, moderate climate and lower property prices, many younger families have moved there over the years; it is certainly a growing area. Bella Vista is located in the far northwestern corner of Arkansas. It is approximately 100 miles from Little Rock and just over 200 miles from Oklahoma City. The best way to get there is by car as there are good road links to the surrounding communities.

Bella Vista Home Rental Options

A great advantage of planning a vacation in Bella Vista is that you will be able to stretch your travel budget a little further. The rental properties are both spacious and affordable which means that you can enjoy a vacation with your whole family. Homes are relatively modern and furnished comfortably. Many have spacious gardens or are located on one of the lake shores. This provides ample space for ball games and outdoor recreation with the family.

The Lakes and Activities at Arkansas Vacation Rentals in Bella Vista

If you plan to go boating or fishing on any of the lakes in the Bella Vista area, you will need to purchase a daily, weekly or seasonal permit from the local office. It is important that you keep the permit on you at all times as rangers may ask to see it from time to time. If you can’t produce it when asked, you can be fined. The only lakes that allow power boats are Loch Lomond, Lake Ann and Lake Windsor. There are no power limitations on these lakes. Waterskiing and Jet Skiing are allowed, making them the three most popular lakes for families. Picnic sites and boat launches can be easily accessed.

Lake Avalon, Lake Brittany, Lake Norwood and Lake Rayburn all have power boat limitations. On these lakes, most fishermen use paddle boats or canoes to head out into deeper waters. Lake Rayburn has a designated safe swimming area and picnic sites. Lake Avalon has a unique enclosed and heated fishing dock located off Tamworth Circle. It is one of the smallest lakes and a popular fishing spot with the locals. Although Lake Bella Vista is officially part of the neighboring city of Bentonville, many locals still visit there. It’s important to note, however, that you will require a separate permit when visiting this lake. The areas around the lakes have numerous trails that are open for hiking or mountain biking in the summer months. Birdwatching along the shoreline is another favorite pastime.
