Several golf courses close by, including Bonita Fairway which is within walking distance.

Many family friendly and upscale restaurants close by, our favorites are Coconut Jacks Waterfront Grille, and Doc’s Beach House.

Caretakers on-site; Since we live so far away (California) we have created a separate entry apartment above the RV garage for my in-laws to stay in while not on the road with a new adventure. They take care of the property for us and may be seen tending to the yard. They are also there to quickly respond to any emergency or if requested can assist you with questions about the area. They do not use the pool, so it is exclusively for your use only.

please note: This house is in a quiet family neighborhood, Please do not inquire if you are planning loud parties. Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

We do have a boat dock and you are welcome to bring a boat in, however there is no boat lift currently installed, and low tide can bring the water level down to as low as one foot.

We’ve been able to enjoy this house for the past year and we are excited to offer our home to you to enjoy with your family.

                                                                  Vicky S.

                                                                  Very nice stay that worked great for our girls trip. Loved the pool and sitting out by the channel. Location was close to everything we wanted to see. Only drawback was all the stairs for my 82 year old mother, a bit more of a struggle than we anticipated.

                                                                  We had a great month

                                                                  scott p.

                                                                  The house was very nice. It was very clean, the kitchen was very well stocked. There was plenty of bedding and towels. The screened in pool was the best. And if you have a boat, there is a great slip on the canal .

                                                                  Location was central to everything.

The property had everything we needed from all the kitchen utensils imaginable to lots of kids beach and pool stuff to beach chairs and umbrellas. Brian the family caretaker was great. Finally I found the owner’s organization of the rental details and response to questions and issues top notch. I highly recommend Belle Rio

                                                                  Enjoyed Our Stay at Belle Rio house!

                                                                  Gary S.

                                                                  Our stay was very relaxing because the house was very clean, and organized with everything we needed. A big beautiful kitchen with everything from beautiful dishes to a big griddle for our morning french toast! The many little extras like, easy to use appliances, garage door opener, games & puzzles for the grandkid’s visits, beautiful walk in shower & walk in closet in the master bedroom, were special features to make us feel pampered ! My husband really enjoyed fishing from the dock & seeing the turtles in the canal. I enjoyed the view & the beautiful birds coming to fish nearby. Brian, the landlord, gave us privacy, but was so friendly & helpful! The beach toys, towels, chairs & umbrellas came in so handy for trips to the beach. The only minor downside for us older folks is that there are steps from level to level, which we knew beforehand. Belle Rio Drive is a nice, safe & quiet neighborhood as well. We would highly recommend this home to others.

                                                                  Sue G.

                                                                  The apartment we rented for the past 16 years sold in January so we were forced to look for a new location. We feel very fortunate to have found Belle Rio Beauty. My husband and I were there for the entire time and our daughter and her family joined us for two of those weeks. The house was lovely and the accommodations fit our family of six. After spending every morning on the beach we would then come back to the house and spend the afternoon in the pool. Our grandsons enjoyed the pool, but so did the adults. We had great family fun and began to build new memories. We were able to also enjoy lots of wildlife that we don't normally get to see (Iguanas, red-bellied cooters (turtles), eagles, herons and, yes, even a black racer snake). We look forward to returning next year.
