About the property

6 bedroom home in Orlando's most prestigious communities, all with pools

Bellavida, Italian for Beautiful Life, our home is in a gated community surrounded by beautiful conservation areas and community lakes. The barrel-tiled roofs and colourful exteriors will remind you of being in the Mediterranean.

The 6,700 sq ft clubhouse features a heated resort pool and spa, fitness centre, movie Theatre, cyber,computer room, spacious lounge with televisions, plus basketball and volleyball courts. Bellavida is located just of US 192 behind Medieval Times in the heart of it all...minutes from the many world famous attractions and shopping, yet secluded enough to provide a private sanctuary you'll love.

Why Julia Greene chose Kissimmee

From 2008 we owned a 4 bedroom home in Bellavida and we love the resort. It is ideal for our older daughter to do her daily walk/ run and also for our younger daughter to use her scooter.

The resort is very relaxed.

We decided to buy a larger home so we can bring other members of the family out to stay with us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Julia



I just wanted to drop you a line now that we are finally back from our stay in the states.



We had a fabulous time and enjoyed the house and its location very much.



Have to say it was a bit of a shock getting back to the cold winter weather here.



Once again thank you for your understanding with all the changes my friend had the best time and her wish to go to Harry Potter World achieved quite an emotional visit as you can imagine.

what a wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks and enjoyed every minute. The house is spacious, has high end furnishings and is in very good condition. We loved to sit at the large outside table for breakfast, and surely enjoyed the heated pool and spa. Very nice to have no neighbors in the back so there are lots of large trees for privacy. The community is quiet and has a great location to be everywhere from Disney to Shopping Malls/Outlets and Restaurant in no time. We have been to the Orlando area many times but this is the best house we ever rented. Will be back next February!!

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on June 4th, the house was clean, kids were excited and and amazed at the size of house. Only regret was not getting the pool heated. It rained 6 out of the 7 days on vacation, still enjoyed our stay. The beds were comfortable, and plenty of kitchenware was available. Havent received my deposit back yet, dont know how long it takes? Only problem we had was traffic, had to leave extra early to go to disney, and universal, lots of construction on I 4. Would stay again, maybe in off season next time! Thank you Julie for sharing your home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. The pool heater is set at 85 degrees. Generally during June, July and August pool heating would not be required. If the out side temperature is higher then 85, the pool heating will not come on as the pool has already heated to this temperature. In June when this review was posted the outside temperature was in the 90's. Setting higher than 85 degrees can feel a little like bath temperature and many of our guests prefer that the pool is not set this high during the really hot months. However, If you would like the pool heating to be higher than 85 then please contact me via email during your stay and I will be very happy to help. Deposits are refunded within two weeks of departure to the account that the original payment is made from. If you have changed accounts since making payment please contact me and I can help with this.

This was the best vacation we ever had.

  • 5 of 5

This home is so beautiful, the pictures doesn't give it justice. A perfect location very close to everything. The resort gave me a very good sense of security while we were away from the house. Definitely would rent again.

SWEET VACATION

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our vacation. Everyone really required their own room and bath so this house was perfect. Julie was extremely responsive. The house temp was wonderful, we had plenty of towels...pool was warm and clean!! Would stay again in a heart beat.

Thanks

Very comfortable house

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable house for my family, good location 25 minutes from universal studios. Clean the only problem I had was no baking pan for oven cooking and lack of pans. Normally when you rent a house you planning to cook.

I would definitely recommend to families.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and feedback re the cooking items We arrived ourselves on the 27th March, we also like to cook at the house and have purchased two more baking pans. There is also 4 frying pans and 4 saucepans at the house with lids. We will buy other items during our stay, as required and update the website to show what's in the house inventory for cooking. We where last in Florida last year so any feedback from guests is very beneficial. Please let us know any cooking equipment required during your stay and we will be very happy to purchase them for you and have them delivered. Julia 30 March 2017

This property is simply amazing!! Very spacious, clean, and include a lot of amenities.

  • 5 of 5

When I say we fell in love with this house the moment we pulled in the driveway this house is incredible. It includes a pool and hot tub in the backyard of the house along with a shower and bathroom as well. Yes I said a shower and a bathroom outside so there's no need to run in and out the house after being in the pool. Also, the rooms are equipped with everything you will need the beds were very soft and comfortable. We had a great stay here I would definitely recommend this house to anyone traveling to Orlando.
