A Private Piece of Paradise!
Our family of 4 (two teen kids) stayed one week at Villa Belle and found it just as the pictures showed. Gina the property manager greeted us on arrival and Christine the owner was very responsive to our questions leading up to the booking and rental. They arranged for a rental car at the airport and loaded in the first days' groceries for us. The place comes with daily housekeeping and was spotless upon arrival (thanks Erlin!). Kitchen fully equipped and very clean. Plenty of extra beach towels and linens. Bedrooms were spacious enough with good closet/storage space and bathrooms (2 full, 1 half) were well stocked and very clean. To top it off, the owners left us a beautiful arrangement of tropical flowers and a lovely bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon as a welcome gift. We are dog people and have a dog of our own so we liked having the two resident dogs around (they live outside, never in the house) as they felt like added security. They tended to get going with a round of barking most mornings between 6:30 and 7:00 am but as we are early risers we were not disturbed. They did have an annoying habit of rushing for the beach access gate and we had to be quite firm with them to prevent them from escaping. Beach access path is VERY steep and takes hard work to climb up and down. It would be scary if it was wet - that's how steep it is. Nonetheless we used it at least twice every day because it takes only 4-5 minutes to get to the beach using the path. Walking along the road would be closer to 15 minutes. We loved the pool and back deck tremendously - it was very private and had a spectacular view of the beach and ocean. Plus there was a lot of shade to be found on the back deck which was dreamy. In short - the place is lovely. We would absolutely rent this property again.
