Overview

About the property

Located in the Texas hill country Wimberley Valley area quietly nestled on 8 plus acres of tree-covered property. Enjoy a gated, secluded country life and yet only minutes from the Wimberley Square known for its quaint shops and restaurants. Centrally located between Austin, Blanco, Fredericksburg, LBJ Ranch, San Antonio, San Marcos and New Braunfels for easy access to rivers for tubing, sightseeing Texas, wine country, wildflower trail, and numerous annual events such as Formula One, SXSW, and ACL Austin City Limits.

At BellaVida Bed and Breakfast enjoy strolls around the property, a picnic under the oaks, large selection of books for reading on one of the covered porches, relaxing in an easy chair or stargazing under the beautiful skies of Texas. If you’re feeling competitive BellaVida Bed and Breakfast offers a variety of outdoor and indoor sports such as croquet, bean bag toss, washers, Ping Pong, video games and numerous board games.

The Great Room at BellaVida Bed and Breakfast offers a place to truly connect with friends and family. It’s the perfect place for family reunions, church groups and organizations, girlfriend get-away, and retreats such as scrapbooking, quilting, and other crafting retreats.

ABOUT US

We believe life is beautiful and should be celebrated after all that’s what bella vida means: beautiful life.

Steve and Belinda Smith are on-site proprietors of BellaVida and it all began during a conversation on their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, a dream spoken out loud “to someday live in the country and run a bed and breakfast.” Less than a year later they were living the dream!

Throughout their married life Steve and Belinda have enjoyed hosting people in their home. Many times one entered a stranger and left a friend. Belinda, a former scrapbooking/photo journal consultant has hosted scrapbooking retreats since 1996 and understands the lodging and space needs of a crafter. As a creative soul and part-time writer Belinda knows just how difficult it is to take the time for creative outlets. Steve and Belinda created BellaVida Bed and Breakfast as a quiet respite from a busy world where guests can retreat, relax, and rejuvenate.

Steve and Belinda reared six children in Austin, Texas and are well-experienced at making beds and preparing thousands of breakfasts. They look forward to serving you at BellaVida Bed and Breakfast!

SUITE DIVINE

The first words guests say when they see this suite is, “Wow!” It’s spacious and beautiful with plush bedding on a king and a queen bed. Yes, two beds! As the saying goes, “that’s not all.” This suite has a private porch area and entrance, complete with a sitting area, a table for two, a flat screen TV and private bath with an antique vanity.

SUITE SARAH

Suite Sarah named for Belinda’s mother who was an avid quilter is a perfect blend of old and new. New quilts adorn twin beds, vintage linens, an antique Singer sewing machine as a nightstand and antique quilts. Though Suite Sarah and Suite Magnolia share a bath you may feel a bit spoiled sleeping in your own bed of luxurious lace-edged sheets. *This suite can be converted to a king bed.

SUITE MAGNOLIA

Suite Magnolia named for the framed magnolia painted by Belinda’s Aunt Velma, “Suite” Sarah’s sister. Suite Magnolia is as comfortable as Southern hospitality. Enjoy the luxurious queen size bed or relaxing in the comfy chair with a great book. And just like sisters, Suite Magnolia and Suite Sarah share a bath.

THE GREAT ROOM

The Great Room is set-up with a corner living area and a large area ideal for crafting, meetings, workshops, and retreats. It is currently equipped with twelve individual workstations for scrapbooking and quilting with space to accommodate additional tables. Each workspace has a Scrap-Ma-Bob Cup and Bag Holders adjustable rolling armchair for hours of comfortable seating. It’s a great set-up for writing workshops and other creative pursuits.
