“Extraordinary home with ever changing views”
Our group of six has been traveling to Usvi for 6 years. We have worked with Catered To for four of those years and they are the best. In the planning stages for this trip my conversations with Catered To were very helpful. They weren't just interested in renting any property, they wanted us to have the best possible experience. This is our first stay at La Bella Vita and we give it an a+ rating. The views were magnificent especially in the mornings when the sun was coming up and in the evenings during sundown. The colors and the views were constantly changing. They can't be described. The villa was very comfortable and stocked with all the amenities that we needed. We would have liked to see more lounge chairs around the pool and more comfortable outdoor furniture but overall it is on our list as a return property.
Our stay at La Bella Vita was truly wonderful. It is a property that we would return to for sure, the views could not be beat. The house was equipped with everything we needed for our family of eight and Catered To Vacations were more than helpful. The outside living space around the pool was perfect for many evenings of dining and relaxing in the pool. At the end of a day of snorkeling, it was like returning home to paradise! This was our favorite location ever at St John's so we plan on returning to La Bella Vita!
“Fabulous place to relax and enjoy St John and its beautiful suns”
La Bella Vita is a wonderful place to stay for two small families, girls trip and or four couples. Kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Each of the bedroom rooms are identical in how the were built. No decision has to be made on who gets the better room. Love the double sinked vanities as well as the large open showers. When staying on land we will definitely consider this villa again in the future.
“Perfect vacation for 4”
La Bella Vita had been my favorite place to stay on St. John. It still is if you have the upper bedrooms in use. The lower bed room was used for our daughter and it was damp and musty smelling.Could also be just a bit cleaner. Spider webs on the inside lighting fixtures and outside railing and chairs.Also the poster beds make it difficult to watch tv. It obstructs your view of the tv. Person meeting us to take us to the home would very quickly give you an "attitude" when not on the correct ferry or you expressed your dissappointments with the house.
Response from the manager Thanks you for your review of La Bella Vita. We are pleased the you enjoyed the house. We would like to apologize for the damp smell in the lower bedroom. Although the proximity to the cistern walls can make some bedrooms on St. John feel damp, please note that the air conditioning units provided can quickly dehumidify the room. We are also very sorry if you felt that you dock greeter was all inconsiderate. We have spoken to her and she was surprised and saddened to hear about this, stating that she did not mean to come off as difficult. Her primary concern was ensuring that you made it to the villa with as little delay as possible after a long day of travel. She has asked us to pass on her sincere apologies. Thank you again for your review and we hope to welcome you back to St. john again the future.
This house is absolutely amazing. I stayed here on 2 separate trips & I would do it again. The Ocean views just smack you in the face as soon as you open the front door. Everything is beautiful, all of the en-suite bathrooms are beautifully identical. The outdoor wet bar, the bathroom & outdoor shower right by the pool are so convenient. The house stereo pumps all throughout the house & downstairs by the pool. so just plug in your Ipod & your set. All types of pretty tropical flowers surround the property. The views are great from every bedroom, bathroom & balcony. The house has everything you can possibly think of - Beach coolers, chairs, towels, you name it. You'll love it. Signed, Satisfied Customer ps... if you just need a 3 bedrooms, I also stayed at Latitude & that house is beautiful too. The hot tub next to the pool is nice for those late night dips.
We had such a wonderful time, as always when we stay in St. John. The house was great-we were surprised at all the kitchen supplies, beach towels, beach chairs, etc. Truly a beautiful house and lovvveeddd the pool and bathrooms.
“Truly the Good Life”
We have rented many houses in many houses in St. John and other destinations and La Bella Vita was definately one of our favorites. We would highly recommend renting this home. The bathrooms were beautiful with the views from the shower and the closet space and double sinks in all four baths. The pool and porches were amazing at all times of the day but the sunsets were breath taking. The kitchen had all we needed to cook evernight. The only addition I would make is more plastic for eating outside. TV & sitting areas were really nice although we were on the go so much we didn't get to enjoy them. This is a perfect house for families with kids old enough to be safe around pools and couples. You could easily have 2 families and not get in each others way. We have 3 kids - 9 y.o twins & 12 y.o. and it was perfect with each getting their own room. Outside enterances to the rooms made me a little nervous at first. The beach chairs, coolers and towels made our daily trips to the beach easy. Thanks Catered To!
“Fantastic Sunsets and Views from the Pool”
We were very happy with La Bella Vita. We especially appreciated that each of the bedrooms was as beautiful as the next, so that no one received the "bad" room. We loved the king sized beds and the stone showers. The living area was well appointed, and we loved the views off of the balcony so much that the dining table on the balcony became our favorite restaurant and we stayed home much more than we originally intended for dinner. The view from the pool at sunset is so spectacular that we started a tradition of jumping into the pool each evening right at sunset after we arrived home from the beach and it was the favorite part of our day. We loved the convenience of the laundry room and powder room on the lower level. The landscaping is spectacular. The location of the house was convenient, yet quiet. The views were amazing. Slight criticisms: The living area was so hot that one day a member of our party almost fainted. A room air conditioner should be added. The kitchen drawers should be cleaned out by the management company as there are food crumbs. The locks on the doors do not stay locked and there is no lock on the balcony door from the outside. It is missing. Nonetheless we loved the house and would not hesitate to rent it again.
“Relaxation, beautiful views and family fun!”
We had an amazing time at La Bella Vita! We can't wait to return!!
“The Good life with aroma”
There were 6 of us staying at La Bella Vita in August 2008 (4 adults, 2 elementary school age kids). We love coming to St. John and were very excited to stay at the house. It is not the most convenient location, but worth the extra driving for the views and privacy (saw an amazing lightening storm over St. Thomas). The pool is a little small, but was lots of fun for the kids. The furnishings and decor of the house are wonderful! I loved cooking in the kitchen :-) We actually enjoyed everything about the house EXCEPT for the smell that wafted over the pool daily. We aren't sure where the smell came from, but it was definitely a "sewer" type smell. Overall, we enjoyed the house (though we have stayed in homes with better views and pools for less money). It is a beautiful property with very nice amenities.
Response from the manager Thank you for your review. We would just like to respond to the point about the septic smell that was wafting in the area during the guest stay. The problem which was coming from down the hill at the time was addressed and solved and is no longer an issue. We apologize for any negative effect that this had on your stay.
