Guests have described Campo di Bella:

"The decor of the home is stunning and the location is perfect. We loved being in Seagrove as it allowed us lots of room to relax (both indoors and out) but we also could easily walk or bike into Seaside. We actually prefer this location over Seaside!"

"Campo di Bella is a luxury property, yet with a comfortable "welcome to our home" feel that makes it a special experience. The pool area was used extensively and was a great place to relax in the late afternoon, early evening after a day at the beach. I don't know what other superlative to use to describe this property, but if you want a 5-star experience along the Emerald Coast, look no further than Campo di Bella."

"This home lacks for nothing! Our family of 12 enjoyed our week stay so much we only left to go to the beach or the gorcery store. We cooked all but 2 meals in the well eqipped kitchen and outdoor kitchen."

"The owners are very helpful and ready to answer any questions. We would love to go back next year!!!"

"The owners were very attentive and responsive to all of our questions/needs. You could tell they take great pride in Campo di Bella and wanted to make sure every detail was just right. We all agreed that this was the best trip we have taken and would LOVE to return to Campo di Bella for our next one."

"The beach is about three minutes away by foot (walking by the awesome Whiskey Bravo) and the heart of Seaside is about 5 minutes away by bicycle. There are dozens of things about Campo di Bella that we loved, but one of the best is that we were able to enjoy the relative privacy of Seagrove Beach (compared to the elbow-to-elbow crowds of Seaside's beach), yet still be close to the dining of Seaside (e.g. "Great Southern Cafe," "Bud and Alley's" and the many Airstream food trailers). We truly had the best of 30-A. We have already made plans to return to Campo di Bella in 2016. We've stayed in dozens of VRBO homes over several years. Campo di Bella stands out as the absolute best vacation home we've rented. We heartily recommend it to any family."

Relax in this new custom built vacation house, 3,635 square feet, loaded with amenities, shabby chic & contemporary beach style decor. Enjoy your own private heated swimming pool (no extra charge) and hot tub (21x15), and fire pit with close proximity to 30A and the nearby beach access. 4 BR - 3 1/2 baths and an upstairs den/media area in main house.

Our guests have loved vacationing in this beautiful Seagrove home. In fact one of our guests noted upon departure,

"You and your husband deserve every accolade you receive as it was absolutely phenomenal! I've stayed at several 5-star resorts across the country and hotels around the globe, and your property delivers a 5-star experience for its guests. Campo di Bella exceeded our expectations. Now the dilemma is how quickly we can make a return visit and how we can extend our stay to more than just a week."

Campo di Bella is nestled into a quiet neighborhood of multi-million dollar homes, just ready for you to relax, go to the beach and enjoy the area.

About Debbie Campbell

I love live music, good food and a casual environment. These are the reasons that I've always loved the Seagrove area and tend to 'hang-out' there when I have free time.

I moved here from Ohio to go to college, got sand in my shoes and never returned back home. I spent time in the early seventies at Grayton Beach when the Red Bar was simply a small grocery with a pinball machine room for entertainment. Street dances were held on Saturday nights and the folks from DeFuniak Springs would join the beach families. Seaside was just becoming a reality and Seagove was a sleepy little town, much like it is today. I manage the property taking special care to meet the special needs of each visiting family. I designed, built and decorated the house to assure that "this is not your typical rental house." Special attention was paid to the furnishing, artwork and comfortable bedding. The layout of the house reflects enjoyment of family and friends, the love of the beach, Old Seagrove and its natural surroundings.

Debbie Campbell purchased this house in 2015

Why Debbie Campbell chose Seagrove Beach

Everything about this house is brand new and charming! The outdoor area can seat 24 and is set=up just for hanging out at the pool, hot tub, outdoor cooking or sitting in front of the fire pit. Don't miss the swing on the front porch that is the size of a single bed and perfect for napping after a hard day at the beach. Unique furnishings such as custom headboards made from antique doors and shutters are just a few of the many unique decor . One of the king headboards is from a 1800's winery door from Hungary. The oyster chandelier is made from oyster shells I collected last winter as I enjoyed our areas 'raw oysters'. This area is right in the middle of 30A and has the most beautiful beaches anywhere. You never have to get back in your car to enjoy your week of white sandy beaches, great sunsets, bike riding along 30A, delightful restaurants, cafes and markets to meet your every need. The reviews reflect a five star home where guests have enjoyed the pool area, the beaches and the grand outdoor entertainment area. I have had several guests asking about the decorator, paint color, tile names, etc. Nothing about this property is "just another rental on 30A". This property is just perfect for those wanting more than a "typical rental house", a hidden jewel in the middle of an exclusive neighborhood. You will not be disappointed.

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -
(20 traveler reviews)

Lux Home-close to Seaside and beach with heated private pool, hot tub, fire pit
average rating of 4.85 based on 20 reviews

3 times stayed, every time was charming

  • 5 of 5

I reviewed this property once before (June 2015). We have stayed in Debbie's home three times now: June 2015, October 2016 and March 2017 - and every time it was perfect.

The beach is exactly 411 steps away. To the few who have grumbled about the distance, you can stroll it, with kids in tow and a picnic basket and boogie board in hand in about four minutes. And unlike the beach at Seaside, the beach at Seagrove is never crowded, even at peak times on the busiest days of the year. But you can walk / bike / scooter / skate from the house to any of the Seaside restaurants in ten minutes or less. It's the best of both worlds by a country mile.

We tend to cook a lot of our meals at the house. The kitchen is very comfortable to prepare a meal for a large group (we've had as many as 14). We are pretty serious cooks. And while the kitchen might not have every last pot, pan and gourmet gadgetry as we have in our home kitchen, it's more than adequate for anything and everything that we ever wanted to prepare. We've rented lots of other vacation rentals over the years that didn't hold a candle to this kitchen.

We love how the kitchen is part of the open floor plan of the ground floor. The kitchen is open to the two dining areas and the living room - and the porch and pool through generous glass. It's a very open feeling when you like, and at night, you can close the plantation shutters and have complete privacy.

The pool is just perfect. We have found that we tend to go to the beach every morning, then lounge around the pool during mid-day, then return to the beach closer to sunset, then use the pool (and hot tub) at night. It's the perfect size and layout. After the first time we stayed at Campo di Bella we were sold on the idea of having close access to the beach AND a pool / hot tub. Now that we've stayed there three times (in Summer, Fall and Spring) we just wouldn't have it any other way.

The bedrooms are spacious to say the least. The size and arrangement of the three upstairs bedrooms works great for a bunch of kids, a mix of adults and kids and surely would satisfy three adult couples. On one trip, we even had two adolescents sleeping in the 2nd floor tv alcove area and they thought that they won the lottery.

The master bedroom / bath are ridiculously large, but we love them. On one of our trips we also rented the Carriage House and it was perfect for a grandparent who wanted to be close, but not too close, to the maelstrom in the main house.

Fantastic vacation at a fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

Campo di Bella was exactly what we needed for our spring break vacation. One of the nicest appointed homes we have rented in the South Walton Beach area. Every detail is considered in the planning of this wonderful home. We had 2 families (4 adults, and 5 kids) for our week at Campo di Bella. Most our time was spent outside on the nice days on the pool/hot tub deck with a covered patio option to get out of the sun. My favorite spot was on the bed swing on the covered porch for naps. In the evenings and when the weather wouldn't cooperate, the open kitchen/living/dining rooms space was perfect. One of the best vacations we have had together. We will definitely be coming back to Campo di Bella.

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We were four adults who had an excellent time in this beautiful home; it is located on a wooded street, on a dead end...spent hours in the pool and on the comfortable porch area...the home is equipped with all you would need for a fabulous vacation - we ate breakfast in, and cooked dinner one night...the location is literally a three minute drive to Seaside and half hour maximum to Rosemary Beach, Grayton Beach and Destin (skip Destin, not worth the ride)...only thing I would offer is that the beach is further than we thought, not 300 steps...we chose to do a minute drive rather than lug beach chairs and coolers for the walk...also the beach is not flat to the street, need to walk down three levels of stairs...only thing we had to provide for ourselves were beach chairs and beach towels (which can also be rented)...and a Publix supermarket is conveniently close by. The owners Debbie and James Campbell were lovely to deal with and responded almost immediately to any questions we had - hoping to return to this home again next year.

A wonderful place for a family holiday

  • 4 of 5

The home was everything the description promised it would be. Conveniently located just a few minutes walk from a lovely beach, our family divided our time between the beach and the adorable pool and hot tub. The nearby bike trails made bike riding easy and convenient. We enjoyed cooking in the well appointed kitchen and made good use of the outdoor grill. The large and comfortable hanging couch swing on the porch was a terrific place to relax with our grandson and adult children. The home's proximity to a Publix meant that it was easy to keep the house stocked without needing to take much time away from our vacation. We were able to rent a golf cart, which was delivered to the house. It made getting around super easy. The nearby town of Seaside has a farmers market on Tuesdays and Saturdays throughout the summer and we found great blueberries and unique sauces there. Seaside also features great food both in its restaurant, some of which overlook the beach, and in the airstreams that line 30A. We would particularly recommend Barefoot BBQ. We would definitely recommend this place to friends. One thing to keep in mind, however, is that no supplies are provided for basic things so you need to buy or bring dish washing detergent, sponges, laundry detergent, aluminum foil, all spices, napkins etc.

Campo di Bella is located a mere 200 paces from the first beach access at Seagrove, at the intersection of Hwy 30a and Hwy 395. The Seaside Community is three blocks to the west. This area is home to the whitest beaches in the world. Great dining is found all along Hwy 30a. Bike and golf cart rentals are available from many vendors in the area. There is a bike path along 395 north to the shopping area and south to the beaches.
