Wonderful beach house!
"From the fabulous views of the Santa Rosa Sound to the easy access to the Gulf of Mexico, we enjoyed every minute of our stay at this beautiful beach house! The furnishings are lovely, with plenty of seating both in the living area as well as the upper and lower decks. The home is well-organized and well-equipped with all the items you need for cooking, playing in the water, and entertaining. The split floor plan provides space for quiet time and for group gatherings; this bright, clean, and beautifully furnished home offers views of the sound from the living area and two of the bedrooms as well as the long decks! Especially help to us were the pack and play and portable high chair for our grandson! The sunsets were fantastic!! We loved the experience and hope to return again!"

"The house was amazing! It sat right on the gulf to give us easy access to the beach. The house was equipped with beach chairs, umbrellas, and sand toys for the kids. We brought our extended family including 4 children. Some of the majors advantages of the house included 2 refrigerators, a separate ice maker, an elevator for easy transport of ice chests and luggage, and the huge loft upstairs.
The few disadvantages were the upstairs AC unit. It was very hot up there during the day and we had a couple sleeping in the loft, so it made their stay pretty uncomfortable. The management company attempted to fix it, but were, unfortunately, unsuccessful. The house also advertised a sleeper sofa which we did not find. We bought a separate fan and air mattress during our stay there for the upstairs. I think with the addition of a Murphy bed or sleeper sofa and a fully functioning AC in the loft, would have made this house absolutely perfect!!
I would definitely recommend the house to families of 8."

"Bella Blue is big enough, yet not too big and very conveniently located within walking distance to the main beach sites. Our vacation included several couples – 4 couples and 2 babies (<1 yr). We could have fit one more couple without being too uncomfortable and all the beds were comfortable and clean. The home is very clean and amazing decor... we would definitely return and stay at this home. Since we had two mobile babies with us, we were concerned with safety of stairs in a multi-story house, the baby-proofing of the house, and the pool – this home is ideal for young children as all the stairs on the main floor have doors to limit their access and the master suite has doors to keep young children safe when on the upper floor. The pool also has a substantial step up – another good safety feature! We had no issues with our children here other than moving a few little trinkets on the lower tables."

"I can't say enough great things about this home and the owner. We used this home for our wedding in April and it worked out perfectly. It is clean and beautifully decorated. It has a lot of space inside and out. It is perfect for families with children. Our families and friends loved the house so much that they will most likely be booking it for future vacations. The walk to the beach takes two minutes, which is really easy when you use the provided beach cart. :) The owner, Sherie, is so sweet and helpful. She responded to all emails or calls quickly. We greatly appreciate her hospitality, and for opening up her beautiful home to us. We hope to be back soon. Thanks, again, Sherie!"
