                                                                  Very clean, master bed was very comfortable. Loved the color scheme. This unit is by the pool but you don’t hear the noise from inside. This is our 3rd year booking through Kastle Keepers, Kathy is a gem to work with.

                                                                  VILLA BELLA - ANOTHER GREAT VACATION

                                                                  Wilford & Georgina S.

                                                                  This is the 8th year we have stayed at the Villa Bella. It's turned into our annual family reunion at the beach. Everything and everybody was wonderful to us except for Hurricane Nate. Even Nate didn't last that long.

                                                                  Thanks again for having such fantastic Villa for us to use every year.
