I am reviewing this property on a few sites. No one asked me to do this, i wanted to be able to share what a great experience this was.

There are no words....Those were my first words to the owner, Larry. I am a cautious person who uses reviews to determine destinations. After reviewing many many properties, Bella Sera was our selection. After spending 9 days there, I have no regrets and would change nothing. Our family enjoyed this paradise on this quiet little island. I travel 90% of the time and can be a very critical traveler. Everything was perfect. The house is absolutely amazing, the pictures, while beautiful, do not replace how spectacular the villa is in person. It appears that previous travelers leave, borrow and pay it forward when it comes to bar & kitchen items such as spices, condiments, alcohol ...etc, with that, if you choose to cook dinners there, you only need to buy your food. We had everything we needed for several dinners. We all felt that we had a luxury hotel at our disposal, it was quite nice. Airy verandas everywhere, gorgeous pool and hot tub. Many breezy places both in and out of the sun. Lots of books read and lots of cocktails consumed while enjoying an amazing view of the water. Enjoy the island! We were a bit disappointed in Christiansted but enjoyed traversing the island many times. We snorkeled with Captain Lewellyn, an experience I would not change, he is an amazing man as was his brother. We also listened to his music at Cheesburgers on Sat night. One of our highlights is hiking down to Isaacs...we were at this beautiful white strand of beach for nearly four hours with not another soul in sight, we had the beach completely to ourselves, unheard of anywhere. Enjoyed putt putt and East end pizza. Loved Ziggys for parking lot beer and quick food. Of course, did both rum tours, Captain Morgans & Cruzan, completely different but both very enjoyable. Especially Cruzan and Michelle M, an Ohio State Alumni hostess! Spent most of the rest of the time enjoying beautiful Bella Sera and the views she offers. The only downside, and I mean this sincerely, is despite lots of bug spray, if you are outside in the evening at the time of year, be prepared. I had lots and lots of bites during the week and itched like crazy, my husband had none. Just prepare and be aware. I cannot recommend Bella Sera enough and selfishly want to keep it all to myself. We hope to make this an annual retreat. Larry is a great communicator and made many things much easier.Thanks to Larry & Peggy & Meg for a wonderful, memorable adult family vacation.

Thank you!!

This is exactly the super luxury, family experience that we wanted when we built Bella Sera.

I forgot to tell you that we had a celebrity chef from one of those TV shows that used our kitchen for preparing a special dinner and she love it, as well!

Return to paradise soon!

We were so happy to host your family and to see how the teens enjoyed the villa - one of the reasons that we love to share Bella Sera is to bring families together for that special week in paradise.

Please return soon!
