This impressive Tuscan style home with four bedrooms can sleep 12 happy beachgoers. It is located in the enchanting Frangista Beach residential community, which has a treasured setting along Scenic Gulf Drive.

This upscale Villas of Frangista community has a gated community pool, a regal club-like cabana with bathroom facilities, dressing rooms, and showers.
A paver tiled driveway leads up to this gracious two-story vacation home that is flanked by tropical palms and includes a veranda with seating along with a decorative balcony above the garage.

A wall-mounted flatscreen TV above a rustic chest provides entertainment. The charming open provincial European styled kitchen includes cream white cabinetry, state of the arts stainless steel appliances, and a white granite topped island bar mottled with charcoal accents.

A charming dining area with a table for four sits in a window alcove beneath a vintage candle chandelier.

We loved our stay at Bella Mar in February 2022. The home is beautiful, the neighborhood is quiet and welcoming, and it is only a short walk to the beach! It's also close to everything we needed; restaurants, shopping and groceries. The property manager, Ocean Reef Resorts, was excellent at providing all the info we needed for our stay, as well as any extras like hangers and towels. We felt so at home at Bella Mar and would definitely stay there again.
