Ratings & Reviews
The Bella Carolina was an awesome house to accommodate the 15 guests we had for our vacation. We never felt on top of each other. The elevator came in handy for the elderly in our group. The view was spectacular, especially when viewing the whale and dolphins in the ocean. I would rent this house again and again, only if I could catch it at a decent price!

Questions & Answers
You list a tv in L1 bedroom MBQ, but there is not L1 MBQ; there is a MBK on L1. Is that the one with the TV? Also, how many cars can the house accommodate?
Lisa, I078 currently provides TVs in all bedrooms including the Level 1 Master Bedroom with a King, with the exception of the three bedrooms with bunk sets. These three rooms do not have TVs. Since this not a guaranteed amenity, availability is subject to change without notice. This home will accommodate parking for 6-9 vehicles dependent upon the size of the vehicles.
