About the property

Comfortable & Convenient Beach House on the quiet end of Panama City Beach

Make yourself at home! Bella Casa is a laid-back beach house with an open floor plan. The spacious living area offers comfortable lounging for the entire family, even your furry family members!

Located only one block from the beach, you’ll have your toes in the sugar-white sand in no time! And when you’ve had enough fun in the sun, relax and enjoy your evening cocktail by the private pool.

Catch up on that much needed rest and relaxation with plentiful sleeping accommodations for up to 12 people:

Queen Bedroom located on the 1st floor. Offers a walk-in closet, built-in desk & bookcase, and private entry to the 1st floor full bath. (Sleeps 2)

Queen Sleeper Sofa in the living area comfortably sleeps 2 people.

King Master located on the 2nd floor. Easily organize your belongings in the spacious walk-in closet. Wind down on the private balcony overlooking the swimming pool and then fully relax as you soak in the Jacuzzi tub. Enjoy your favorite TV show on the Flat Screen before slumbering off to dreamland. The ensuite bathroom features granite vanity, separate toilet room, and Jacuzzi tub with separate shower. (Sleeps 2)

Bedroom with 2 twin beds also located on the 2nd floor. Features walk-in closet, built-in desk & bookcase, television, and private bath. (Sleeps 2)

Bunkroom with wet bar & half bath located on the 3rd floor. The bunk bed sleeps 2 children (not suitable for adults). A day bed with trundle also sleeps 2, which is suitable for adults. This large and roomy bunkroom will definitely be where the family wants to gather for an evening of fun. Watch the family’s favorite TV shows on the Flat Screen, play games at the large coffee table, or simply create lasting memories while laughing, playing and taking in the sensational sunsets and panoramic view of the Gulf on the large sun deck right off of the 3rd floor bunkroom.

The locals refer to the east end of the beach as “the quiet end of the beach”. But not to worry…quiet does not mean boring!

From Bella Casa walk or bike (1/3 mile) to the must-see St. Andrews State Park nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and the Grand Lagoon. St. Andrews Park is the second most visited park in Florida, and is the first park to win the prestigious Awards of being named the “Best State Park in Florida” twice in a row and the “Best Beach in America” by Dr. Beach.

In addition to being the area’s top spot for diving, snorkeling, and surfing, the Park also has an amazing variety of wildlife, from whitetail deer to alligators and even the occasional manatee! Anglers enjoy fishing from the Park’s two fishing piers, the bay-to-gulf fishing jetty, and two boat launches.

Nature lovers will also want to pay a visit to Shell Island for a day of shell collecting and dolphin sightings. The island is home to hundreds of species of plants and wildlife, including endangered sea turtles! From St. Andrews Park, take the shuttle or gather up to 10 people and enjoy the island at your own pace on a pontoon boat!

You will not lack for entertainment during your stay at Bella Casa! From live music and dancing…to dolphin excursions, boat charters, pontoon and fishing boat rentals, and guided sailing cruises…to the SeaDragon Pirate Cruise – 2 hours of sight-seeing and non-stop activities for the kids…it is all conveniently located within one-quarter mile of Bella Casa.

For those simply wanting to play in the breath-taking, emerald water, you will find a kite boarding shop and several dive shops along with numerous Jet Ski, kayak, canoe, and paddleboard rentals.

Foodies staying at Bella Casa will be delighted with the many water-front restaurants within walking distance, including but not limited to, Captain Anderson’s, Grand Marlin, Runaway Bay, and Dockside. And for the foodies who love to cook, pick up fresh seafood at the local market and be sure to get your fresh produce and farm-fresh eggs at the local Farmer’s Market every Saturday and Sunday.

Enjoy your time at Bella Casa with spectacular sunrises, relaxing sunsets, cool drinks, and sand between your toes. We know you will come back every year so do not miss your chance to book your reservation today!

Great proximity to the beach!

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at Bella Casa in June and couldn't have born happier with the location. The house is so close to the beach! House was very clean and spacious. Chris, the property manager was so great to work with. Couple of things I would improve/update would be the living room furniture, televisions and downstairs mattress and decor. Everything else was great. My teenagers loved the loft area. Overall, highly recommend for the location and property manager. We would definitely reconsider staying here again.

Very nice and spacious for our family of six.

  • 5 of 5

Chris was very helpful with our booking of this property. The house had everything we needed. Could use updated tvs in every room and updated living room furniture but overall was very clean and nice. The master bedroom had comfortable bed and was very large with large bathroom and closet. Mattresses in twin beds were not comfortable but upper floor had other beds for teens to use. The closeness to the ocean was great within walking distance to schooners and beach was perfect (not too crowded). The house was very good for dogs as well. Overall, we loved it and would highly recommend it for large family. Enjoyed schooners, margaritaville and captain andersons

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We were a little hesitant about staying at first given one of the very negative ratings. However we wanted a place near the ocean and was willing to take a chance. We are so glad we did. The house exceeded our expectations. It was clean and everything looked great. The property manager Chris was super nice and checked in with us to make sure everything was ok. We can't say enough about the wonderful time we had and the great memories our family made here.

Comfortable & convientant

  • 4 of 5

The location was perfect, close to beach, easy short walk to beach & great view from deck. The house was quiet & clean, the kitchen adequately furnished. We had 3 families( parents & adult children with small children) and each got a floor for time alone. We would stay again & recommend friends. It was so nice to have own pool for small children & adults. Added plus, the property manager stopped by to check on needs.

This is one of the dirtiest places we have ever stayed! The beds had not been changed, master bed was full of sand. All the towels were sour smelling and damp. The dishes in the cabinets and the silverware in the drawers had food stuck to them. The floors were dirty and sandy. We had ants in the kitchen all week. The coffee machine did not heat properly and the gas grill could not be used due to rusted and broken grills. My wife and I actually went to the office in Panama City to express our concerns and see what they could do to correct. Nothing happened, not even an apology for any of these issues. Sent an email to the president of this company a week after we got back and have yet to hear from him either. This could be a great place if it was cleaned properly, updated a little and managed by a more responsibly company. At this point I would definitely not recommend this property or more importantly this company if I was looking for a place to rent in the Panama City Beach area!! The only reason it got one star was it's location to the beach.

Owner's Response: Due to our own visit and review of our property the week prior to this "Review" we discovered the same conditions and changed our property management company on August 1, 2014. We are truly sorry for the condition you found the home and have made every effort to correct the problems.
