Local Attractions: The Redington area offers a wide variety of dining, shopping and entertainment very accessible. Children and teens can ride the area trolley from St. Pete Beach to Clearwater and to Tyrone Mall for a minimal daily fee. The Clearwater Aquarium, Indian Shores Wild Bird Sanctuary, Dolphin Watch and of course Smugglers Reef Miniature Golf are just a few of the attractions luring kids (adults) of all ages. St. Petersberg has weekly concerts, art shows and events for all to enjoy along with the most complete Salvidor Dali Museum in North America. Major theme parks, Disney World, Universal Studios, and Sea World, are only 1 hour and 30 minutes and Bush Gardens is only 45 minutes. But the beach, 'One of the Top Ten Beaches in Florida,' is just out the back door and once you get you toes in the sand, you may find it difficult to pull away. Yet, everyone should try to stop at least once at Madeira Beach's world famous 'Candy Kitchen.' It is worth the wait!
The Beach: The reason for the 'Ten Best Beaches in Florida,' classification is immediately apparent to the first time visitor. Daytime from 'Casa Bella' offers splendid dolphin shows, great heron, sandpiper and seagull watching, and, of course, the exhilaration customary in the grand pelican fishing forays. A peaceful stroll at waters edge reveals one of the great shelling beaches on Floridas Gulf Coast. This special beach has plenty of flat terraced sand space for beach volleyball (provided), football, softball, or whatever while others sunbath. The gradual sloping waterfront is ideal for infants and youngsters (supervised) while offering adults a plethora of water sports from snorkeling to skim boarding. When sand & surf is too much, a refreshing dip in the pool rejuvenates. Yet, awe inspiring vistas seem to explode on the horizon at the end of the day. Punctuating this view, coconut palms and a beautiful private pier add splendor and depth to the horizon. It is simply spectacular!

Great house & awesome beach!
No issues from start to finish. Looking forward to booking again someday.
Ryan and family were wonderful guests. Their requirements were simple; a beach house, a pool, a beach and some time to enjoy as a family. A perfect fit for Casa Bella.
Beautiful Spacious and interesting vacation Home
This was a lovely and large home for all of us to share and be together with the family. Very comfortable and beautiful details. Wonderful history of the house was shared. This house had the most awesome pool, hot tub and view of the ocean and the sunset. It was incredible.
We all had a wonderful time and can't wait to return to the beautiful Casa Bella.
So happy we found this lovely home!!! Also noted, Dawn and Chris were more than helpful with everything that was needed. Thank you from Mr. and Mrs. Hofgesang
We were so pleased to share Casa Bella with such a wonderful family. Even though we were out of town, our on the spot staff, Dawn and Chris, couldn't have been more complimentary about Mr and Mrs. Hofgesang and their entire family. Not only would our family and staff be well served on their return to Casa Bella, but further, any owner could look forward to accepting a reservation from this quality family. Very much looking forward to their return to Casa Bella. With great respect, Heidi and Art
OMG!! The house was perfect, and then some. It was our 17th annual girls trip. The house was amazing. It had everything we needed. Kitchens were fully stocked, the pool area was fantastic. We would return again in a heartbeat. Dawn the manager, and Art the owner, are the nicest people. This home will not disappoint
Lisa and her friends were just the perfect guests. A really fun and sweet group. We would recommend them as guests to anyone, but selfishly we would love to have them back first! It was Dawn's (home manager), Chris's (home engineer) and my honor to get to meet and know them all.
Family Reunion Vacation
Four couples shared the home. Fantastic location and amenities. Decor somewhat dated but that did not detract from the overall experience. Everything provided-towels, linens dishes, silverware, standard cleaning supplies, condiments,beach and pool equipment etc. The property manager, Dawn, was very helpful. Check in and check out were seamless. The property owners were accessible and accommodating. Hope to repeat the experience.
We are most fortunate to have guests like Bruce and his group of friends. It makes our job most pleasurable, and our home manager's, Dawn's, day stress free and enjoyable. And we are always pleased to hear we are supplying amenities guests really use and truly appreciate. A complete and fulfilling vacation for our guests continues to be our goal.
Heidi and Art
My husband and I rented Casa Bella for our annual family vacation (6 adults and 3 small children). The home is comfortable and spacious. We spent hours in the very large beachfront pool. There is an abundance of outdoor seating whether you prefer sun or shade. The homes on the beach are close together but the beautiful landscaping at Casa Bella provides excellent privacy. Although the home is on a public beach, there were very few people in the area of the house. Sitting on balcony was one of our favorite pastimes. Incredible views any time of the day but especially at sunset. Thank you Art and Heidi for making your home available; Dawn (property manager) for the tour of the house and the tips you gave us and Chris (handyman) for the timely response to a couple of small repairs.
It's with great humility we accept such wonderful reports from our guests regarding their family vacation at Casa Bella. We, including our fantastic staff of Dawn and Chris, truly endeavor for our guest's stay to exceed their expectations for a memorable family vacation. Indeed, we do take pleasure receiving comments from our guests that indicate success in that regard while realizing we must continually strive to make the wonderment and magic of Casa Bella appear for each new and returning family. Respectfully, Heidi and Art.
Wonderful Location, Beautiful Home
We just returned from a family vacation at Casa Bella and absolutely loved it! This is a very spacious, beautiful and unique home. We spent every day relaxing in the oceanfront pool, the hot tub and walking on the beach. The location could not be better!! The reservation process went smoothly. We talked to the owners, Art and Heidi, on the phone and by e-mail and they were at Casa Bella when we arrived! They took us on a tour of the home and answered any questions we had. It was a pleasure meeting them and they could not have been more gracious and welcoming. Look forward to a return trip!
Heidi and I felt honored to welcome J and S and their nice family to Casa Bella. Although the weather did not fully cooperate, they obviously took the time to take in the full beach experience. From their thoughtful comments, we realize our efforts to provide a comfortable home at a fantastic location for a family vacation is again proving up. It's always pleasing to know another family has had the opportunity to enjoy the wonderment of Casa Bella.
