Bella Vida Resort Vacation Rentals

Bella Vida Resort - A Vacation Rental Guard Gated Resort

Bella Vida Resort in Kissimmee, Florida offers high quality single family detached vacation rental homes and townhomes at competitive rental prices. As well as being less than 16 minutes from Orlando's Disney World®, this guard gated community has a wide range of facilities, which begin with the 6,700 sq.ft clubhouse, which contains an array of resort style amenities, and end with a 15 acre lake-land conservation area. Plus, if you're a golfer, the Orlando area is rich in the choice of courses on offer, and there are a number just minutes away from Bella Vida Resort.

Staying at Bella Vida Resort

Bella Vida is a Luxury Community with resort style amenities which are intended for use by homeowners and their guests. The homes in the resort are a combination of, predominantly two storey, detached single family homes and townhomes. The center of the resort is occupied by the six thousand seven hundred foot clubhouse and a central lake. The homes in the resort have been designed to fan out from this central point.

The fully featured resort clubhouse offers a variety of complimentary amenities for guests to enjoy including a large heated resort style zero entry pool with a Jacuzzi and an extensive pool deck with a large number of sun loungers and other poolside furniture. The clubhouse lobby area provides a Concierge desk and information for guests staying at the resort. For the children, there's a games room, while for the adults, there's a well equipped fitness center. Outside, there are a host of outdoor amenities, including a basketball court, a beach volleyball court, extensive walking trails, plus a picnic area, a children's playground, Bocce Ball and Italian styled gardens. The whole area of the clubhouse is also covered by free Wi-Fi.

Bella Vida Vacation Rental Homes

The upmarket vacation rental accommodations of the resort are in the form of villas and homes, most of which have private pools and range from 3 to 7 bedrooms and from 1,500 to 3,800 sq. ft in size. The smaller homes tend to be townhomes with splash pools, whilst the larger homes will be detached single family style homes with privately screened swimming pools. Each Bella Vida Resort vacation rental home is locally managed, so all you need to do is relax and enjoy your vacation. Also, one of the main advantages of renting a vacation villa here is that you could visit the parks in the morning, come back to the resort for lunch and a dip in the pool and be back in Disney World® for dinner and the evening firework display.

Getting to the Attractions from Bella Vida resort

Florida has a worldwide reputation for leading the revolution in mass tourism. Over the past 60 plus years, Orlando has built itself up to be the world's leading travel destination. The city's theme parks are predominantly behind that incredible transformation of the city. Theme parks are big business in Central Florida and they're spread geographically across Orlando and south down to Tampa and are all accessible on a day trip from Bella Vida Resort. But it's not just about the theme parks and attractions; if you want to take the kids surfing at Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic coast, or just feel like chilling at Clearwater Beach on the Gulf of Mexico, then either of these is achievable on a day out. Both of these beaches are no more than a 90 minute drive away.

The following driving times are approximate, but they give an indication of the convenience of staying in vacation rental home at Bella Vida:

The city can boast that it's one of the world's most renowned golf destinations in the world with many award-winning courses that are even stops on the PGA Tour. Even if you're not a scratch golfer, there is abundance of golf courses to suit all playing levels. If you're looking for a casual round of golf at an executive or par-3 course for the whole family, where you don't need to be too nervous about keeping up the pace or dress code, there's lots to choose from.

Eating at Home
If you're thinking of cooking at the house, then you'll need to want to a supermarket for food shopping. Staying in Bella Vida makes that easy; there are three large supermarkets (Walmart, Publix and Target) within a five minute drive of the community. So, you'll never be too far away when you need to pick up a few beers and the steak and shrimp for the poolside Barbeque.

Non Supermarket Shopping
If you're looking for something beyond supermarkets then you'll have to drive a little further. Twenty minutes down the I-4 in the Tampa direction, you'll find Posner Park where you'll find an IMAX Movie Theater and a whole range of restaurants and stores including, JC Penney, Best Buy, Staples, Target, PetSmart, DICK'S Sporting Goods.

Mall Shopping
If you're looking for more upscale shopping, then you'll have to drive into Orlando. With its upscale malls, shopping outlets and boutiques, Orlando offers great options. Designer brands and the hottest fashion trends are always in style at The Mall Millennia and The Florida Mall where shoppers will find top department stores offering incomparable service. Orlando's designer outlets, including Orlando Premium Outlets on International Drive, Orlando Premium Outlets on Vineland Avenue, and the Lake Buena Vista Outlets, feature a wide selection from the world's top designers at incredible savings. With this many shopping opportunities within 30 minutes driving distance, you had better bring a spare credit card.

The Weather at Bella Vida

The climate of Florida is heavily influenced by the fact that all parts of the state are in close proximity to the ocean. Lake Okeechobee, in the middle of the state, is a point of demarcation for the climate of the Sunshine state. To the North of the lake, which is where Bella Vida is located, the climate is classified as humid subtropical, while areas to the south have a true tropical climate.

So, when staying in Bella Vida, you should expect weather ranging from warm and pleasant, through to extremely hot (June-Sept) throughout the year. The sun shines on most days in Florida and the temperature doesn't usually fall below freezing (0°C / 32F). These facts should give you a clue as to why Disney World® and Universal Studious and the other parks were built in Orlando.

Generally, if you visit the parks outside of the summer months, you should have a dry and comfortable experience. But in summer months, it's going to be hot and humid most days, with temperatures in June, July and August reaching into the mid 90s F.

The rainy season arrives in May and runs on through until October. So, when leaving for the parks, you'll want to pack an umbrella and a plastic poncho, or similar. If you're a person who enjoys witnessing torrential downpours, then you can almost set your watch by the thunderstorms each afternoon during the summer month. It's also worth mentioning the Hurricane season which runs from July through to November. Fall/Autumn sees the arrival of beautiful balmy days where average temperatures and rainfall start to reduce. The winter months of December, January and February offer the coolest weather with January daytime temperatures averaging around 23°C / 73°F, but these can drop to 9°C / 48°F overnight. The driest months of the year can be found during late Fall, winter into early spring.

Other Communities to Consider

Bella Vida resort offers a decent range of vacation rental homes and it's well located for the parks, but we advise you to also check out other similar rental communities and resorts which are often sited within a few miles of Bella Vida and where you might find other properties of interest. While It's not a huge disadvantage, but the Davenport and Clermont communities are further away from most of the attractions, but they are often priced better than vacation rental homes in Kissimmee. In the Davenport/Clerment areas, why not check out Bella Toscana and also, if you're into golf, Highlands Reserve . If you're looking to keep costs down, then we'd suggest looking at Crescent Lakes . Looking at vacation rental communities in Kissimmee, you may want to look at vacation rentals in Emerald Island which is close to Disney and Terra Verde, which again is close to the parks.

If the rental rate is not a major constraint, then we'd adise you to look at Formosa Gardens, or Windsor Hills and Windsor Palms which are both full resorts and so offer more onsite entertainment.

The quality of all of the vacation rental communities around Kissimmee, Davenport and Clermont is very good and the general standard of the homes in them can be exceptional. So, we would suggest that before booking any vacation home; determine your requirements including the intended travel dates and the number of people traveling before contacting as many homeowners as needed. This will allow you to determine which vacation rental homes most closely suit your requirements. Whether it be price, availability, location, size of the property, facilities of the resort or community, etc, all of these should feature in your decision.

Driving Directions to Bella Vida

With seven of the top theme parks all in one sunny location, Orlando is the theme park hub of the planet. And, with more than 105 million visitors in 2016, this Central Florida city is also the most visited tourist destination in the United States. So, it's little wonder that all the US domestic and most international airlines are capitalizing on this success themselves by providing huge numbers of scheduled flights in and out of Orlando. The city is served by two international airports; Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Orlando-Sanford Airport (SFB) which are 30 minutes and one hour's driving time, respectively from Bella Vida.

A large number of flights arrive and depart Orlando International Airport each day, with Sandford far less well served. There are a number of driving routes from Orlando International Airport to Bella Vida, but we generally advise on this one because of its simplicity. To reach Bella Vida from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® and continue until reaching exit 3 for Osceola Pkwy. Turn left onto W Osceola Pkwy and continue on until turning right on North Poinciana Blvd. Continue on for three miles until turning left onto Oren Brown Road. Continue on for less than half a mile, before turning right onto Marcello Boulevard. After three hundred feet, turn right onto Pesca Drive and Bella Vida Resort can be found directly ahead.
