This is our first stay at La Bella Vita and we give it an a+ rating. The views were magnificent especially in the mornings when the sun was coming up and in the evenings during sundown. The colors and the views were constantly changing. They can't be described. The villa was very comfortable and stocked with all the amenities that we needed. We would have liked to see more lounge chairs around the pool and more comfortable outdoor furniture but overall it is on our list as a return property.
Our stay at La Bella Vita was truly wonderful. It is a property that we would return to for sure, the views could not be beat. The house was equipped with everything we needed for our family of eight and Catered To Vacations were more than helpful. The outside living space around the pool was perfect for many evenings of dining and relaxing in the pool. At the end of a day of snorkeling, it was like returning home to paradise! This was our favorite location ever at St John's so we plan on returning to La Bella Vita!
We had such a wonderful time, as always when we stay in St. John. The house was great-we were surprised at all the kitchen supplies, beach towels, beach chairs, etc. Truly a beautiful house and lovvveeddd the pool and bathrooms.
La Bella Vita is a wonderful place to stay for two small families, girls trip and or four couples. Kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Each of the bedroom rooms are identical in how the were built. No decision has to be made on who gets the better room. Love the double sinked vanities as well as the large open showers. When staying on land we will definitely consider this villa again in the future.
This house is absolutely amazing. I stayed here on 2 separate trips & I would do it again. The Ocean views just smack you in the face as soon as you open the front door. Everything is beautiful, all of the en-suite bathrooms are beautifully identical. The outdoor wet bar, the bathroom & outdoor shower right by the pool are so convenient. The house stereo pumps all throughout the house & downstairs by the pool. so just plug in your Ipod & your set. All types of pretty tropical flowers surround the property. The views are great from every bedroom, bathroom & balcony. The house has everything you can possibly think of - Beach coolers, chairs, towels, you name it. You'll love it. Signed, Satisfied Customer ps... if you just need a 3 bedrooms, I also stayed at Latitude & that house is beautiful too. The hot tub next to the pool is nice for those late night dips.
We have rented many houses in many houses in St. John and other destinations and La Bella Vita was definitely one of our favorites. We would highly recommend renting this home. The bathrooms were beautiful with the views from the shower and the closet space and double sinks in all four baths. The pool and porches were amazing at all times of the day but the sunsets were breath taking. The kitchen had all we needed to cook every night. The only addition I would make is more plastic for eating outside. TV & sitting areas were really nice although we were on the go so much we didn't get to enjoy them. This is a perfect house for families with kids old enough to be safe around pools and couples. You could easily have 2 families and not get in each others way. We have 3 kids - 9 y.o twins & 12 y.o. and it was perfect with each getting their own room. Outside entrances to the rooms made me a little nervous at first. The beach chairs, coolers and towels made our daily trips to the beach easy.
We were very happy with La Bella Vita. We especially appreciated that each of the bedrooms was as beautiful as the next, so that no one received the "bad" room. We loved the king sized beds and the stone showers. The living area was well appointed, and we loved the views off of the balcony so much that the dining table on the balcony became our favorite restaurant and we stayed home much more than we originally intended for dinner. The view from the pool at sunset is so spectacular that we started a tradition of jumping into the pool each evening right at sunset after we arrived home from the beach and it was the favorite part of our day. We loved the convenience of the laundry room and powder room on the lower level. The landscaping is spectacular. The location of the house was convenient, yet quiet. The views were amazing. Slight criticisms: The living area was so hot that one day a member of our party almost fainted. A room air conditioner should be added. The kitchen drawers should be cleaned out by the management company as there are food crumbs. The locks on the doors do not stay locked and there is no lock on the balcony door from the outside. It is missing. Nonetheless we loved the house and would not hesitate to rent it again.
La Bella Vita was the ideal villa for 7th stay on St. John. Its location provides a wonderful panoramic view of Great Cruz Bay, the sunset and the lights of St. Thomas. The floorplan is ideal for several couples and the amenities allow you to dine in comfortably. Whether you hang out around the pool or head down to the beach at the Westin at the bottom of the hill, it's a perfect spot to be. While Virgin Gorda estates is a lovely neighborhood, the road to the community needed some improvement. We enjoyed our stay so much, we are returning to the villa this December.
