Wonderful week at our favorite beach

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our second stay at Bella Vista. The house is lovely with an excellent location. We had a huge stretch of beach to ourselves. Hurricane Hermine only brought us one thunderstorm. Aside from rain that one afternoon, the weather was perfect. Our pups loved chasing their toys in the ocean. They hated to leave. Their humans did too! Looking forward to our next stay in May. After 35 years of vacationing on CSB, it only gets better.

Better than we could have hoped for

  • 5 of 5

Bella Vista was perfect for our family with four grown children (one of them married). The two master bedrooms were great for the two married couples. The house is big and beautiful, and had everything we needed, including good air conditioning. It is very private, and the views of the sand dunes and ocean are fantastic. The beach is just a short walk across the dunes on our own walkway. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone, and we will come again if possible!

Another GREAT week at Bella Vista

  • 5 of 5

Terri and Teresa - 2nd time staying at Bella and we had another great week. Cape San Blas reminds me of the Florida that I used to visit when a child. Unhurried and just epitome of the "Forgotten Coast". Bella with its secluded location and picturesque setting is hard to beat.

A little piece of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our week at Bella Vista and we cannot wait to return! Everything about this house is wonderful!! There were 2 sets of adults and 2 kids and we each had a bedroom on our own floor! Lots of privacy. It is a unique home (loved the potty in the shower on the top floor) with a wonderful beach location. We have stayed on the Cape for 11 years and this is by far the best place we have stayed. Very clean, comfortable and maintained! Teresa is great to work with! We will be back next summer!!

Perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly loved Bella Vista! We've been vacationing on the cape for over 30 years, and this is one of our favorite houses. We appreciated the use of the elevator. Other homes we've stayed in with them didn't allow renters access. We'll certainly be back.

Belle Vista is a wonderful home. There's really something special about this home —the views of the dunes and the ocean, the privacy, the style...and of course the beach. We've stayed here three times and plan on being there again. It's on what we think is the best part of the Cape.

The elevator is great for when you are unloading the car and for aging parents.

It's beautifully maintained, very clean and comfortable!
