Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in South Gulf Cove - Bella Vista Acqua Villa

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 2-6)

Bella Vista Acqua Villa

Relax and enjoy the tranquility of this 'Beautiful Waterfront' villa that sits on a tip lot with 145 feet of waterfront. It has been newly furnished to afford all the comforts of home.

The sunny, spacious great room invites you to relax while enjoying TV or a movie on a LCD TV and DVD player.

The kitchen comes fully equipped for either cooking-up a quick snack or a full course meal. Dine at the breakfast bar or kitchen nook with a beautiful view of two intersecting canals.

The master suite has a comfortable queen-sized bed, LCD TV, and the en suite bath has a walk in shower. One guest bedroom has a queen-sized bed and the other guest room has twin beds. They both share the second bath.

You can enter the newly built, over sized lanai through the sliders of the kitchen nook, great room, or master suite. Swim in the new custom pool and barbecue with family and friends.

This villa also features your own private dock and boat lift, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, portable grill, bicycle, and fishing poles .

With either a morning cup of coffee or tea, or an evening cocktail, observe the beautiful herons, jumping mullets, and maybe even an alligator or two.

BEACHES- Boca Grande, Englewood, Venice, Fort Myers, Siesta Key and many more are within 10 to 60 minutes away. GOLF- Some of the best 9 or 18 hole courses are minutes from your doorstep.

RESTAURANTS- From fine dining to casual beach front cafes, this area can accommodate all your culinary tastes. WATER SPORTS- Rent jet skis, boats, or charter fishing vessels at nearby marinas.

SHOPPING- North, east, south, or west there is a shopping area just waiting to be sampled. Visit Fisherman's Village in Punta Gorda or St. Armand's Circle just a stone's throw away from Sarasota.

Amazing home! Teriffic location and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific house; very well maintained and clean with an excellent location at the end of quiet canals. The pool was nicely maintained and spotless. Double sliding doors open from the living room to the lanai area adding functional outdoor space to the home. The lanai has a good sized patio table and barbeque.

The kitchen is very well stocked and in

general, the layout of the home is practical and convenient. The master bedroom has a spacious bathroom and walk-in shower and is separated from the other two bedrooms and second bathroom by the living room and kitchen, providing privacy and space for families/teens. There's ample room for everyone to lounge and relax.

The house is 20 minutes from several  local beaches and all are outstanding. It's minutes away from a Publix grocery store.

The home is in a very quiet location--we rarely even saw neighbours. It has easy access to all local amenities. The street has very little traffic and the surrounding neighbourhood is quiet and suitable for biking or walks.

Thanks to Lou and Rita for their excellent service. We will be booking this home with them again!

Beautiful Home With Much To Offer

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a beautiful location. Clean, comfortable, nicely maintained, well-appointed with many little extras (pool noodles, bikes, coolers, etc). Kitchen was fully stocked with plates, glasses, cups, flatware and cookware. We didn't want for anything during our stay except for more time. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood, relaxing view, heated pool, the grill and the lanai. Layout is open and airy while providing privacy for the bedrooms and bathrooms. My sister and her husband and I stayed here for 16 days. We have rented many vacation homes through the years and this was by far the best one. Lou and Rita were great. Easy to deal with and quick to address the one small problem we did have. Definitely would consider staying here again.

Fantastic home in a quiet neighbourhood!

  • 5 of 5

This home was very clean and well maintained! Everything that you need is already there. The best parts of the property were the pool, the view from the lanai, the wildlife, the lighted palm tree and the open concept. Our questions were answered promptly and booking the property was very easy. Thank you Lou and Rita for your fabulous customer service!

Loved my rental May 2012

  • 5 of 5

The house was described right.It was perfect

The house was well maintained.

The owner provided good customer service. There was a file full of all the information we needed,even what wildlife to be careful of,there was even a book that explained about all the wild life in Florida.

I would recommend the property to every one

My family enjoyed swimming,fishing-remember to buy a fishing licence. We loved Bob Evans for breakfast, The Outback for dinner.

Loved Wallmart

A lovely house with an unbeatable location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks in August/September 2011. The house was very clean and had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. Publix at the end of the road for everything we needed for eating in. Great places nearby for eating out. Lou recommended River City Grill in Punta Gorda. We are glad we took his advice as we had a fantastic meal there. We also ate at the Lock 'n' Key at Englewood Beach as usual and was not disappointed either. Sharky's on the Pier at Venice was another great eating place. As for relaxing, Boca Grande Beach was 15 minutes away. A stunning beach, and very quiet at the time of year we were there. We were there quite a few days. Value for money this house cannot be beat. You can book into a hotel and perhaps save yourself a few hundred dollars for your two weeks. But you dont get the space, privacy or location like this house offers. This is the second time we have rented from Lou and Rita and we thoroughly recommend you give them a try. You will not be disappointed. They will see to that.

Toller Kanalblick

  • 5 of 5

It was not the first time renting a villa in Florida with our three kids but entering this villa and having a look to the outside to the canal made us feel sure to have chosen the right one. The canal look is gorgeous. We could have possibly spent our days by sitting on the boat dock and having a look around ( look for animals, birds, fishes) while our 13 year old son and our 9 year old daughter put the fishing rods in the water. Even they were not succesful (only turtles wanted to take the bait) it was a great experience. There is plenty of fishing accessories in the garage. The pool was fantastic, too, you could not get out our 12 year old girl.

The villa was spacious, very clean and had everything we could possibly want. Lou gave us some advices for restaurants, beaches and was very helpful. Thanks again Lou !

Attractions like Busch Garden are not too far away, you can reach everything you want within a day. Gasparilla Island is a nice place to spend a day.

If we will be back to Port Charlotte, it would be our rental home again.

Wir haben schon öfter eine Villa in Florida gemietet, doch als wir aus dem Haus auf die Terrasse traten und auf die Kanalkreuzung blickten, waren wir sofort sicher, das richtige Haus ausgesucht zu haben. Der Kanalblick ist toll ! Wir hätten unsere Urlaubstage auf dem Bootsdock verbringen , dabei Tiere, Vögel und Fische beobachten können( sogar ein Weißkopfseeadler wurde von uns gesichtet). 2 unserer Kinder haben gerne , wenn auch erfolglos geangelt, leider wollten nur Schildkröten anbeißen, die Angelausrüstung ist gut, es gibt auch sehr viel Zubehör in der Garage.Auch der Pool hat uns gut gefallen unser 3. Kind war wie die anderen kaum rauszubekommen.

Die Villa war großzügig, sehr sauber und hatte alles, was man sich wünschen kann. Lou gab uns tolle Tipps ( Restaurants, Strände etc), auch lassen sich Attraktionen wie Busch Garden gut in einem Tag abfahren, Gasparilla Islands ist auch für einen Tag am Strand sehr gut geeignet.

Wir würden gerne wieder diese Villa mieten, wenn es wieder nach Port Charlotte geht.
