house rental amenities

This perfect rental in the keys has is it!  Bella Mar has it's own sandy beach (larger than many small hotels and protected by a stone break water), it beautiful pool with waterfall and hot tub, a kids dolphin pool/fountain, a Tiki Hut with bar, sink, refrigerator, grill and flat screen stereo oh and a  stereo with I-pod hookup.  If you are into fishing you are 4 mins from the Vacca Cut (passage to the Atlantic) as well as the gulf side.  The boat house has ample room for personal water crafts and boats probably up to 35' depending on draft.  It has the best of all worlds with great location to explore by car or boat. 

The house is a "Florida" style home built in a tradition long past but it is so warm and comfortable without the sterile feeling of a brand new home which so many don't really fit the keys.  While the house is older it has central AC, each King bedroom is nicely decorated in the period with it's own bathroom and shower and each has it's own TV entertainment center with cable and DVD!  The kitchen is open and has great views with every cooking accessory you could wish for, oh but we never found a beer opener so we switched to cans which was better for the pool area anyhow.  The house and grounds are sooo spacious, room for everyone to find a place to sit and read or snooze int he hammock!

The house also has a pool table for evening enjoyment after a hard day at the pool or fishing.  It is amazing but my kids kept saying (ages 15-21) it's like being at a resort without any other guest, total privacy!

Unforgettable Vacation

Review submitted: April 30, 2011   Date of arrival: October 16, 2010

This year will be our third visit to Bella Mar. This home has become the vacation spot that we look forward to the minute we leave and the topic of conversation over the entire year.

We cannot say enough about how warm and welcoming the house is. Everything inside is so comfortable and complete. There has never been a moment where we said, “It’s too bad we cannot find…,”. The Thompson Family has really taken great care to make sure their home is well taken care of and that we feel as if it is our own.

The most unforgettable feature of this home is the backyard. When you walk onto the back patio, it is like stepping into a private resort or a movie set. Everything about it is incredible from the landscaping to the pool to the hot tub and Tiki Bar. We visit in the fall/winter, and coming from Upstate New York find it so much fun to be able to watch football on Sunday, while sitting in the hot tub enjoying cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Everybody gets what they want out here, whether it’s sitting in the sun, shade, under the waterfall, swimming, strolling… anything. This backyard has a mystical way of keeping you busy from first thing in the morning until very late at night.

We haven’t gone fishing but could see how amazing it would be for avid fishermen. The boathouse looks as if it would accommodate large boats and everything you would need from ample dockage to fish prep stations and tons of ice.

Gaither Thompson, the owner, is a great guy to deal with. One of the best things has been being able to get in touch with him on his phone with any question and knowing he is really interested in our group having a great time. We are so looking forward to our next trip!

It is amazing but my kids kept saying (ages 15-21) it's like being at a resort without any other guest, total privacy! Well confirmed rumors tell of Anna Nicole staying here and feeling private enough to stroll "al natural" around the property for a month before going to the Bahamas, yes it is true!

The weather over Christmas 2010 was much colder than usual but there is so much to do that we didn't let it slow us down.

Finally, the owner is such a stand up guy!!!! The agent we booked with hadn't paid the owner for our weeks and with less than a week to go I spoke with the owner who said "not being paid isn't your problem, payment or not you are spending Christmas at my house regardless, he even welcomed us a night early without any extra payment! In today's society where do you meet a guy like this? I can't say enough about him since at first I thought I was ripped off of over $11,000 and you know as well as I do that 99% of other owners would have said tough luck, but not this owner and his housekeeper "Yonny" is fantastic and so very helpful!
