Staying at Villa Bella the past 2 yrs has been a wonderful experience!!    May 27, 2017




We love the gated community, has a neighbohood feel to it. The kitchen is large so you don't feel like you are bumping into others. We didn't have to pack swim toys and floats because they have a closet full! We love 2 BRs that have king size beds. Our son will be getting married this yr so hopefully his BR with 2 twin beds won't be a problem in the future!

Kathy Shampine's reply:

Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review! We always look forward to seeing you!

Family Vacation    Jun 27, 2016




Villa Bella is one of the best family vacations we've ever had. First time ever in Destin and it is definitely one of the nicest areas I've ever been to in Florida. The beach and harbor area are a great place to unwind. Villa Bella has enough space for everyone to have their own area and is extremely convenient for people who love the beach.

Kathy Shampine's reply:

Wonderful review!

Wonderful winter reprieve    Mar 07, 2015




Villa Bella was such a charming cottage. It had every amenity you could want to make your stay perfect. Love it's location so close to the beach and heated pool. Look forward to next year's stay.
