Absolute Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

I almost hate to share how fabulous both Cape San Blas is, as well as this absolutely wonderful home. We'd really like to keep it all for ourselves :) We brought our dogs with us and dubbed the entire trip our trip to "Doggie Disney World". The house is so incredibly dog friendly. They were able to swim all day, then spend most of their time on the back porches, taking in all the great salt smells in between naps.

For us humans, it was also pure perfection. We cooked gourmet meals every night and were grateful for the incredibly appointed kitchen. There was nothing missing, right down to the Henkel knives.

My husband and I won the lottery and ended up in the upstairs master. Each morning we woke up to the breaking dawn and watched the waves crash against the beach. From there we enjoyed full days on the beach, including sea kayaks, crabbing, lounging, walking, sunsets and smores. Pure heaven!

We also chartered a sailboat one evening with Captain Terrell of Windward Sailing Charters, which was a blast!

We can't wait to come back!!

Wow - what a wonderful house and location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week at Bella Vista with our two dogs and could not have picked a better rental. The house is beautifully decorated and such a smart design. The elevator helped with getting luggage upstairs and each floor has a bedroom, providing privacy for larger groups. We especially liked the third floor bedroom/bathroom. The owners/builders of this house thought of everything. Most rooms/decks had a view and it had everything we needed. The kitchen is supplied better than any other we have ever rented. I thought of my parents while we were there. It would have been great for them as we often took them on vacations with us. Having no steps to enter the house and bathrooms designed for those who need to sit while bathing is such a wonderful, forward thinking idea. The property is private and large. Our dogs had room to roam and seemed very comfortable with the house/property. And then there is the beach, oh my - it was beautiful. Teresa is helpful, responsive and does a great job managing this property. We appreciate everything she did to make it a great vacation and would like to thank the owners for sharing their house to not only us but also our dogs.

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!!
