  • Amazing Beach House Exactly as Advertised!

    "We stayed at Bellavita for a long weekend and absolutely loved it! There were 3 families and it accommodated all of us perfectly. The house was clean, spacious, and extremely well appointed. They had everything you can think of - kitchen gadgets/cookware, beach chairs, video games, baby supplies, you name it. And to top it off, the heated private pool and hot tub were great! The pool was the perfect depth for our young kids. Gina was always very responsive and professional, and our deposit was returned quickly. We loved everything about the house and can't wait to return. Highly recommend!"

  • Beach heaven

    "Our stay at the Padre beachfront house was magnificent. My family of 11 adults enjoyed the spacious rooms, and the large, open kitchen and entertainment rooms (including stereos and large TVs). The patio and pool out back also created another place to gather and hang out! Two rooms with king beds are upstairs with their own baths, and the three rooms downstairs (king, queen, tiki bunk beds) share a bath. All of the rooms are very quiet and have enough space. The outside pool is the best part. It offers a huge pool to cool off in after a long day at the beach, along with chairs and patio tables, even a wagon. We used the 6 bicycles every day. The location was right across the street from the beach with no obstructed view for morning risers who want to watch the sun come up! We loved it!"

  • BREATH TAKING VIEW!

    "The view from the living area was amazing! Very beautiful and comfortable home that we were able to enjoy with our 4 children. The home was spotless and well maintained. It was so nice having "the extras" in the home. I have rented homes before and they didn't have them so it was nice not having to go to the store the minute we arrived. Beth was easy to contact and made sure that everything was going well for our family. My children said it was their favorite vacation this far!"
