Close to Disney. Bella Vida gated resort

Overview

Property

Updated: 08-Dec-2016
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. An impressive 25 foot waterfall greets you as you arrive through the gates, and just beyond that is the Italian- inspired Clubhouse.

The 6,700 sq ft clubhouse features a heated resort pool and spa, fitness centre, games arcade, cyber cafe, 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.

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.

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights with our family for a weekend Disney trip. The house was beautiful and spacious and Julia was very responsive to any questions we had. We will definitely be back!

Great house, great location within the neighborhood (private)

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated and spacious home located toward the back of the neighborhood which is a quieter area. The lanai / pool area faces a wooded area providing privacy. House is clean and well furnished. Beds in all 6 bedrooms were very comfortable. The pool and hot tub were both clean and the heater for the hot tub in good working order. Maintenance is needed in the following areas: outdoor grill is rusted and does not work, two of the bar stools around the kitchen counter are broken and cannot be used. Suggestions for a more comfortable stay for guests: kitchen trash can needs to be much bigger, trash cans should be in all 5 bathrooms and all 6 bedrooms (only a few bedrooms had a trashcan), there were not enough bathroom towels (only a few in each bathroom) and guests need to be sure to supply soap, shampoo, dish detergent, dishwasher soap, laundry soap, etc.

Owner's Response: The outdoor grill was purchased 8 months ago, and unfortunately did not work when the guests arrived for this short break stay. As with all home appliances it is very hard to predict when they might go wrong. I have now advised our management company that there is a problem with the grill so that they can arrange for it to be fixed. There is a cooker, oven and hob and a microwave in full working order in the house so other cooking facilities are provided in the event of a problem. There are trash cans (bins) in all the bathrooms ,and all the bedrooms are connected to the bathrooms, the majority of our guests are very happy with a trash can/ bin per bedroom. The trash/ rubbish is collected daily from all the homes in Bellavida, in order to keep the community clean and tidy and bug free. The kitchen trash( Rubbish) bin is smaller, so that it can be emptied daily and the bags will fit into the specially designed collector outside the house. As advertised on the website we provide one hand, one bath towel, one pool towel per guest. For stays longer than 4 days extra towels can be provided on request. Our home is advertised as self catering, hand soap, dish detergent, and laundry soap, are provided for guest for the first laundry wash and the first dishwasher load. We can also provide starter packs on request but generally guest prefer to purchase their own favourite brands of products. Kitchen stools, we replaced two stools in April this year, I will be looking into a different design for our next guests arriving in early December.

Fantastic Holiday Home !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have holidayed in Florida 18 times, and this villa has been the best yet. It is very clean, well maintained well everything you could want. Julia has communicated really well with us and has been on hand when we've needed her.

On arrival we had a slight problem with the alarm code and within 30 mins the maintenance people were on site correcting the fault. It was just one of those things but we were extremely happy with the way it was dealt with.

The villa is spacious and all our family were over the moon with there bedrooms. The living area couldn't have been any better, the Tv was huge. The pool area was clean and tidy, with plenty of sitting area. Overall we could not have asked for more, and we are already thinking about trips back to this villa.

It is close to Disney, shopping is also near by with a large variety of restaurants.

If you are looking for a large family home, this is very ideal for your stay near Disney.

Derek and Denise and very happy family

Light, Spacious, Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from a 2 week stay at Auroras Secret on the Bella Vida gated community. This is the first time we have stayed at this particular villa and would certainly return again. The villa is really big, which is exactly what we wanted. The living space was huge which suited our party of 7 adults. The bedrooms were large, well equipped, and had great bathrooms/shower rooms. The beds were the most comfortable we have all stayed in which made a massive difference. The distance to the parks were as expected, around about 20-25 minute drive which is great. I would like to thank Julia for her prompt responses to any questions that we had. The only downside to our holiday is that it went far too quickly. Would highly recommend this villa.

We had a great vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights and had a wonderful stay. It was a great location, right next to a Walmart and plenty of places to shop and eat. The pool and hot tub was clean and safe for our toddler grandchild. It was roomy and had plenty of room for our family. Would strongly recommend!!

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The villa is ideally situated off the 192 and very close to Walmart, which we were able to walk to in the mornings. Although we had a few issues these were sorted out quite quickly with the management company. This really is a beautiful home and very well looked after, it is in such a quiet area you would find it hard to believe that you're so near the craziness of Disney. We were a party of 6 so each of us had our own bedroom which was perfect, my bed especially was super comfy and I slept so well! We were able to arrange a later checkout with Julia which we really appreciated! I'd highly recommend this villa as a couple of families could share and you'd still have your own space, I would absolutely stay here again and hopefully we will!!

Location

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Orlando International at 20 Miles Nearest Motorway : Motorway I-4 at 5 Miles Nearest Beach : Cocoa Beach at 60 Miles Car: recommended

Aside from Disney's many attractions. This year we have enjoyed a traditional Rodeo. These are held on Saturday nights at the Kissimmee Sports Arena starting at 7 pm. Please call 407-933-0020 to check any seasonal changes in dates and times.
