Great House with Beach Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Bella Vita was a wonderful house for a team meeting! We had 11 people. Lots of space to do our cooking and great outdoor space. Plenty of space to spread out and give everyone room to move. Beach Reunion was on top of anything we needed while staying but to be honest, it was perfect and we really didn't need to call for anything :) Highly recommend this house and more importantly, this company!

Thank you Beach Reunion!!

  • 4 of 5

I booked the Bella Vita vacation home a few weeks ago and was thoroughly impressed! I was visiting Destin for the first time for my wedding. We had about 18 people in the home and had plenty of space. We were so much closer to the beach than I thought, I could see it from the master window. We called about needing more towels and Carrie brought them right over and even stayed and talked awhile with my family about fun things to do in the area...she was awesome! The only complaints were plumbing the 2nd floor toilets kept backing up (nothing a plunger couldn't fix though) as well as no closet space for the people in the bunk room. Neither complaint took away from the beauty or experience at the home! I am a Texas native and solely went off these reviews as well as pictures and I am satisfied! My wedding party enjoyed their stay and Destin was the perfect place for my beach/gulfarium wedding!! Thank you Beach Reunion I look forward to booking with you next year for our family vacation!

Nice Home close to beach, with priviate pool, and facing nice lake

  • 4 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving weekend with 3 other families. Laura and Carrie were great to work with. Had no major issues with the home and the location was great.

Pool heat was not working and the management returned the money back. However, it was not the money but the pool that we wanted. We had e-mailed couple of days in advance to ensure pool heat was turned on and were confirmed that it will be ready upon arrival.

Home is advertised for 20. 12 of these are really in the house garage where 6 large bunk beds have been set-up. Master bed room was large and excellent.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently came for a week long getaway. This home was perfect for us! We loved that it was located in a private, gated community. This led to less worry as our 4 year old rode her tricycle around. The home was nice and clean when we arrived, and had no issues checking in directly at the house. The back of the home and the pool deck over looked a lake, which was extremely relaxing. You can see the waters of the Gulf from the 3rd floor deck, however we usually ended up relaxing by the lake.

The walk to the beach was much shorter than we anticipated. We did have to exit through the community entrance, but then the access was just across the street. Took 4-5 minutes total to walk. We also enjoyed the restaurant that was right there at the beach access. It's called "The Crab Trap". They had good food and a wonderful view of the beach while dining. There is also a little gift shop there, and public restrooms.

As for the management company, Beach Reunion, we couldn't have asked for better customer service. Laura, Aly and Jessica seem to be the main girls in the office, and each one were a pleasure to work with. Carrie is the concierge, and was always just a text away to answer our questions once we arrived.
