“Bella Vista - Fabulous”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We rented Bella Vista for our small family wedding. The property was even more beautiful than in the pictures. Our families stayed for the entire weekend and it was a great place to hang out, relax and explore a little bit of the California coast. It was in a wonderful location - close to the beach, close to Santa Barbara, but secluded at the same time. We will definitely rent Bella Vista again for another family vacation!

“Birthday Celebration”
Reviewed 1 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had an enjoyable stay at Bella Vista...the only problem was a pool being constructed during our stay, but we got a discount and the noise was not bad. One other downside was the lack of air conditioning...other than that I do look forward to staying again when the pool is finished! The property was beautiful with so many fun things to do...basketball, tennis, ping pong, bocce ball etc. The main house is really nice, but the guest house is out of this world...so nicely decorated!! So overall we were really pleased with our stay!

Thank you for staying with us! We are all excited about the addition of the pool at Bella Vista! It will be a great addition to an already amazing property. Summer 2015 was an exceptionally hot summer, with many people wishing they had A/C. As a lifetime resident I can honestly state this is not typical! Usually there are less than 10 days a year where we wish we had A/C if we don't! Future summers are not likely to be as hot as this one was!
Please come back again soon and enjoy the pool when it is done!

Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We rented this amazing piece of property for my sister's 30th birthday. I almost didn't want to write a review because I don't want any competition the next time we want to rent Bella Vista. This place is magical and has pretty much everything you could want...we never wanted to leave.

“Beautiful family oriented home, gorgeous beach location, sports equipment galore...the best vacation ever!!”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Our family of 10, including twin 2 year old boys and 6 very active young adults had a wonderful time playing on the beach, riding the bicycles and surrey to the Oxnard marina, surfing with boards provided and kayaking! The whole house was beautiful and well appointed even the beds were comfortable! It seems everything was well thought out for a large family. It was the perfect spot for our very active and fun loving family! A vacation we will never forget!
