Our family booked this fabulous villa for two weeks. The first week was our family vacation and the second week was for wedding preparation and the actual wedding itself. Working with Larry was like having our own personal concierge. From as early as a year in advance when I made the inquiry, Larry gave me all kinds of suggestions for best beaches, dive shops, snorkeling areas, restaurants, and even what to do on the Fourth of July. He answered all my questions promptly as we planned our daughter's wedding from afar. Upon our arrival, we were greeted at the airport by the nicest family and taken to the grocery store on our way to the villa. The house was beautiful and well cared for. We had plenty of room to spread out yet lots of gathering places for when we wanted to be together. The pool was great to unwind after a day on the beach and the waterslide gave us extra entertainment. On wedding day, the photographer was thrilled to have such a beautiful home as the backdrop for wedding preparation photography. We hired a professional chef for a few meals and she enjoyed the well-appointed kitchen and the various places to serve dinner. Watching turtles swimming by while taking a shower and feeding the birds and fish were just some of the extra highlights to an already beautiful place. I cannot recommend this home and the owner highly enough. We felt like we were in a movie set and were treated very well. Thank you, Larry and Peggy, for opening your home to travelers looking for a comfortable and luxurious vacation getaway.
Let me just start by saying thank you to Larry & Peggy Meyer for the use of their stunning, oceanfront home in beautiful St. Croix. Bella Sera By The Sea by far exceeded all of our expectations. From the amazing sunrises and sunsets to the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks all day. When they say oceanfront they mean it. The breathtaking views are to die for. This amazing home offers you complete privacy, it's like a 5 star resort with all the comforts of home. If we could give more than 5 stars we honestly would. If getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life is what you are looking for, this is it. The views are spectacular. We spent the majority of our time swimming in the glorious fifty-five foot pool complete with waterfall, waterslide, and spa overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. We cannot say enough about this beautiful home and highly recommend it.
The house and location where absolutely amazing. Larry the owner was very accommodating from the time that you booked until you depart his beautiful home. The furnishings and Decor were over the top and the home was like something you see in a magazine. The location was perfect and the views breathtaking. There are plenty of spots to sit, relax and take in the view and the island breeze. You will find yourself really wanting to stay at the home and enjoy a wonderful relaxing vacation!Our children were 12,13,15 & 17 & they thoroughly enjoyed every minute.
Bella Sera by the Sea is a palatial villa on the east end of St. Croix. It is a great place to go for total quiet and relaxation. We enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of the waves hitting the rocks below. The vast verandas offer ocean breezes and great views all day long. The house itself is quite unique! There is so much to look at, you can't take it all in at once. There are fascinating pieces of art and even a chapel if a place to meditate is required. The house is very well appointed with every modern convenience including an 80-inch TV in the main room. We grilled out by the pool and enjoyed the slide, waterfall, and hot tub in the evening. The master bedroom made us feel like we were at Versailles! It has an enormous shower with 2 shower heads and an ocean view. There was also a very large Jacuzzi which we didn't get around to using. Bella Sera would be a great place for honeymooners who want total privacy or a larger group who enjoy hanging out around the pool. Some nice restaurants are an easy drive away. The owner is extremely responsive if you have any questions or if any maintenance issues (no matter how minor) arise during your stay. He also provides lots of information on diving, snorkeling, dining, and other island activities. If you want a beautiful setting in a "one of a kind" home out of the rat race, Bella Sera is the place!
Larry and Peg were exceptional hosts. My husband and I spent a wonderful week at gorgeous Bella Sera with dear friends who were celebrating their wedding anniversary. The villa was perfect for a low-key, private vacation and offered so much in the way of amenities and luxuries that visitors could stay the entire time without leaving the home and never getting bored. The ocean front view was incredible and we loved having coffee or dinner on the balconies and watching the sea turtles play near shore. The bedrooms were very beautiful and comfortable. The villa is absolutely stunning. We were particularly impressed with the customer service Larry and Peg provided as we inquired about renting the villa as well as sending info on things in the island to do. They even coordinated for a friend to meet us at the airport and lead us to the grocery store so we could stock up on the week's supplies before heading to the villa. What a great way to start the vacation! The entire experience was incredible and we highly recommend this to anyone who wants their own private piece of luxurious paradise.
