We stayed at the Bella Casa house in The Shores community from July 9-16, 2016. It was very hard to leave! Our family made lasting memories and we are very happy with our decision to stay at The Shores! By far it is the most clean and comfortable place to stay on SPI. The house itself was pristine and made a huge first impression on us as soon as we walked in the door. We had 7 people in the house, and none of us ever felt crowded. Even our 94 year old grandmother had her own private room, large TV and balcony! The kids enjoyed the private pool. We grilled out two nights during our stay, and hung out by the pool area which was very relaxing.There are only 2 small things that can be added to the house for an even more enjoyable stay : patio furniture on the top/master bed balcony, and TV's in the top 2 bedrooms (mainly the guest room across from the kids room). Other than that, no issues what so ever! I highly recommend the Bella Casa house and The Shores to anyone looking for the perfect family beach vacation. We also loved the private beach and are spoiled now from it! We will absolutely be back for more vacations in the future. Thank you Franke Realtors for providing us with such great hospitality!
