“Wonderful place to stay - so glad we booked !”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just returned from a week of sheer relaxation. Bella Vista is a wonderful place to stay, it's in a quiet location with everything you need only a 10 minute drive away. We were a family of 9 with an age range stretching from 3 to 87, the villa is perfect for everyone and the pool is the best we've had. The photos don't give you the full picture but maybe that's a good idea as you will be over the moon with all this lovely place has to offer. The owners Steve and Gill are super, genuinely helpful and keen that you get maximum enjoyment from your stay - it's reassuring that they are only a phone call away. A terrific villa, magnificent pool and lovely owners - what more could you ask for. I would recommend this property without hesitation :) *****

“Really good accommodation in a spacious and comfortable house.”
Reviewed 28 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The house and grounds were wonderful, exactly as in the pics. Swimming pool was large and very well maintained. Good facilities such as dishwasher, washing machine, broadband and TV which was useful for the children getting some respite from the very hot and sunny weather. Everything in perfect working order.

Villa owners accessible and friendly in case of problems. The villa is in a fairly remote area which makes a car essential. Highly recommended.

“Disappointed”

We booked this Villa because we wanted privacy and our own pool. On arrival which was later than expected because of a detour to Ibiza with Easyjet we were met by Steve Harris on a CV road as the directions to get to Bellavista are sat nav co-ordinates rather than an address and we were experiencing difficulty in finding it.
After a quick show round the villa we arranged to meet the owners who live on a site attached to the Villa the next morning to go through the layout.
We were advised that the pool was cloudy due to the previous group getting in the pool with sun cream on and the owner Steve would try and fix it.
We asked Steve to recommend a restaurant near the Villa and he replied "don't talk to me about restaurants" which we found to be very un helpful and set the scene for any further conversations.
The owner Steve Harris proceeded to enter the villa grounds without informing us to try and fix the pool and to water the grass. I politely asked him to announce his visits by ringing the bell at the front gate as there were times when it could be inappropriate to come in as the children or indeed the adults may have been in a state of undress. He then said " I will come up every other night at 8 o'clock to water the grass" and he missed only two nights out of our fourteen night holiday to attend to the pool or grass and never once announced his visit neither did Gill his wife. As if his visits were not enough of an intrusion we had his wife and a gardener paying us a visit on Saturdays. They advertise no smoking on the property but this does not appear to apply to the gardener.
The area outside the villa if you want to go for a walk resembles the landscape of the moon and you will be pestered by flies all day long.
The villa and pool are very nice but our holiday was spoiled by the above comments.
Finally when we returned home and expected to get our £300 breakages deposit back it was paid into a PayPal account different to the one indicated on the booking form as we were advised by Steve Harris that any Pay Pal account would do and we lost £11 in fees due to this.

In response to DISAPPOINTED. We are extremely disappointed by these comments. Having gone out of our way to ensure these clients have everything they need, as we always do, we had to put up with rudeness to myself and my wife for two weeks. They never got lost on the first night I met them a a pre arranged place where we meet all our guests, except for those who regularly return. On the first morning they got lost while looking for a supermarket and eventually returned empty handed. I went to the villa to ask them if they wanted us to get them some shopping as we were going there ourselves, only to be told to ring the doorbell before I came to the house. Again I thought a bit rude as I was trying to help them out. This was the only time I came to the house unannounced, as I made an appointment for the next each time. They could not seem to understand that a garden in Spain needs watering regularly and a pool has to be maintained. This was not helped by the fact they never used the pool shower so every day more and more oil was going in the pool resulting in having to install a new pool filter. In the advert it states a gardener will call once during a two week stay. Also all linen and towels will be changed. This is the only time they went there. We do not live on a site attached to the villa. As you can clearly see on the Holiday Lettings advert. The villa has its own grounds of 5,000 sq metres. The no smoking policy obviously only applies to in the villa. As for the surrounding area I'm afraid neither of us has ever been to the moon so can't really comment!! As for the return of deposit we only returned the money the same way as always. Nobody has ever paid any charges before.
Both me and my wife work full time so we rarely see our clients. Please read our other reviews.

“A little slice of paradise!”
Reviewed 11 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

As soon as we drove through the gates and up the drive to this property, we totally fell in love with this beautiful villa and its extensive garden and swimming pool. There was 7 of us (2 families) the villa sleeps and caters for 10 people so we had loads of room, even if 10 were to stay here you definately wouldn't feel crowded as the rooms are very spacious and airy.
The lovely owners Steve and Gill live beside the property (in a bungalow in a seperate garden)so are on hand if you need any help or directions etc ..nothing seems too much trouble for them .
The pool is huge and there is ample sun loungers around the pool area. The verandah is a haven for escaping the hot sun, and dining alfresco. The furniture inside and outside the house is of great quality and beds/sofas extremely comfortable.
A car is a must (we hired 2 small cars) and handy to have a sat nav as although it seems a bit out of the way, its only a 15min drive to alicante and 10mins to ozone bowling arcade/ shopping outlet in San Vincente where there is a choice of restaurants. The free Wi-Fi was a bonus to us all sharing pics on facebook making everyone jealous haha ..and the massive tv with all our favourite channels, was perfect.
Overall, this is the best villa we have ever stayed in and we've stayed in so many. Its the first time we've all agreed we would book again, which is what we are hoping to do very soon. This is definately a 12 out of 10 ! Thanks again Steve and Gill , from us all in Dundee x

“Amazing holiday in a beautiful villa!”
Reviewed 4 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We (4 adults and a baby) stayed in the villa for 2 weeks.
All the amenities in the villa made for a truly relaxing holiday.

The sun loungers around the private pool made a perfect setting for days of sunbathing, while there was ample room in the large gardens for games of tennis etc. If it got too hot there was always the pool table under the terrace or sky tv to keep us amused! The villa even has an ice machine thing on the fridge which was a really useful! The villa is equipped with everything we needed and really is a home from home.
Steve and Gill really went out of their way to make us feel at home! They helped us with everything from rescuing us when we go lost ( really lost!!) to lending us their sat nav and recommending places to see and do.

The villa is ideally located only 5 mins drive from local supermarket, 10 mins to beach and 15-20 mins to Alicante where there are lots of restaurants, shopping etc. You will need a car.

Thank you Steve for everything you did for us!

We would definitely recommend this villa to everyone!
