Beautiful home in a fantastic location
5/5 stars
My husband and I spent 2 weeks working remotely in Kure Beach. Bella Playa was the perfect home away from home for us. The house was bright and well laid out, the appliances were all modern and well maintained. The bathrooms are up to date with plenty of hot water and good water pressure. The neighborhood was very walkable and everyone was incredibly friendly. The elevator made the house a good fit for our senior dog. We loved going to church outdoors at the pavilion on Sunday morning. We'd definitely return to Bella Playa!

Kure Beach Vacation - Bella Playa

Thanksgiving at Kure Beach Bella Playa
5/5 stars
This is our second Thanksgiving with our grown children and their spouses and grandchildren. Everyone loved Bella Playa! The layout gave each family some privacy and the elevator made check-in and check-out a breeze since we didn't have to climb a bunch of stairs with all of our food and bags. Although the weather wasn't perfect, we still made it to the beach and the large supply of beach chairs and the wagon was much appreciated to carry everything there. One of the highlights of the trip was the ping pong table in the garage that kept all of us entertained in between watching football and eating.
- Jennifer

Jennifer, thank you so much for your review. We are so happy to hear that you and your family loved Bella Playa and its convienent elevator, many great beach amenities, and the ping pong table! We would love to have you back again in the warmer months. Thanks for trippin' with iTrip!

Great size and location
5/5 stars
We were a group of college friends in town with husbands and children for one of our friends' wedding. The size of the house was perfect for our large group, everyone had their own space to retreat to yet the kitchen and living areas were spacious enough for all of us to gather. Our only complaints were little things that would help things function a little better - ie no indoor mats at the doors made it harder to not track in sand and water, not much hanging space inside for bathing suits and towels. Nothing that really impeded us from having a nice time or any faults with the house itself, just touches that would have been nice. The upstairs balcony was very nice for evenings after the kids went to bed for adults to have a cocktail and listen to the waves crash. Proximity to the beach was perfect and the availability of toys and chairs was very nice to have for those of us that flew and couldn't bring such items. We enjoyed evening walks to the pier and arcade as well. Overall, we all enjoyed our time and wish we could have stayed longer!
- Renee

We are so glad to hear about your experience at Bella Playa, Renee! It is wonderful that you and your group had a fun time catching up, and that you had plenty of space in the house. It's also great that you were able to utilize the beach equipment, and that the location was perfect for you. We are so appreciative that you chose to book your special vacation with us, and we hope that if you ever find your way to the NC coast that you will consider us again! Thank you for the review.

A good time for everyone!
5/5 stars
Great floor layout of the house when you needed privacy you could find it and the top floor was great to entertain, eat and view the ocean from balcony. A short walk to the beach made it easy to commute back and forth during the day and pop up rain storms. Attentive and responsive management company that fixed any minor hiccups. Loved the whole experience!
- Patrick

We appreciate your feedback, Patrick! Our team is happy to hear that the home was the perfect set-up for your vacation. It's lovely to know that you got to enjoy the local attractions, and close by beach access.

Awesome Accommodations June 2022
5/5 stars
Stayed at Bella Playa in Kure Beach and was pleasantly surprised with how clean and spacious it was. We were all impressed with the amount of furniture in the house. The kitchen was bright with five counter stools, dining table with six chairs and a bistro table to accommodate four. All bathrooms were spotless and bedrooms were spacious. Short walk to beach. Will be planning another vacation here for 2023. Thank you for making our vacation enjoyable!

Great place to stay!
5/5 stars
My extended family of 9 stayed at Bella Playa very comfortably recently. There was lots of room for sleeping and hanging out. The house was decorated very cute and beachy, and was very clean upon our arrival. There's a ping-pong table in the garage that the kids loved playing with and the house is an easy walk to the public access entrance at the beach. We had an issue with the freezer while we were there and Itrip sent someone right out to check it and they even brought a bag of ice! The house has an elevator too, which was so helpful for my parents who were staying with us. Would definitely book with them again in the future!
- Heather

The Bella Playa Home
5/5 stars
The house was beautiful! It fit 9 people very comfortably and another 3 for a dinner. The house has everything you need to have an amazing beach day! Kure beach is a 4 minute walk and the beach cart made it even easier to go to the beach! The team was very responsive when texting a couple questions we had. Thank you!!
- Laura

Thank you for your feedback, Laura! It is so nice to hear that you and your group fit nicely in the home, and that everyone was comfortable.

Great week at Kure Beach!
5/5 stars
Property was exactly as described. There was room for everyone in our party of ten to gather for meals in the dining areas, plenty of seating for movies and popcorn and also provided private space for “me” time. Access to the beach was easy with the chairs and wagon. Our young granddaughters loved the large walk in shower. The kitchen was bright clean and functional with a very large frig and the counter seating was very convenient. The start up supplies were more than adequate for our stay. There was also convenient local access. We would highly recommend this property and would use it again on any future Kure Beach trips.

We are overjoyed to hear that you loved your stay at 'Bella Playa', thank you for the review! It's great to know that the spaciousness, beach access, and home appliances made for a relaxing getaway, and we hope you will visit again sometime soon!

A wonderful Spring Break trip staying at Bella Playa in Kure Beach, NC!
5/5 stars
Our family had a terrific spring break trip to Kure Beach, NC staying at Bella Playa! The house was super clean, comfortable and updated. The location of the house was a short walk from beach access and a park with tennis courts. The house was convenient to many attractions in the area including the pier in Kure Beach and the Fort Fisher Aquarium. The folks at iTrip Vacations were terrific with their communication, knowledge and professionalism.

Mini Vacation
5/5 stars
Bella Playa was great. There was plenty of room for our 2 families and several teens. Had a great time playing ping pong and spending time at the beach. There were a ton of beach chairs and a wagon available to get all of our stuff to the beach. Enjoyed a morning walk to the pier each morning. The kitchen was fully stocked. We had brought several kitchen items but didn’t need them as the unit had it. It even had a large pot for our seafood boil! Yummy. The living room and kitchen are on the third floor so we had a good view of the beach and there was ample seating for everyone. The elevator was helpful to get all of the food upstairs. I would highly recommend!
- Kim Lorbacher

Thank you for your 5-star review of 'Bella Playa', Kim! We are thrilled that the property provided entertainment and adequate space for you and your guests to make some great memories!

Even Better in Person!
5/5 stars
The house was as described in the listing. However, it's much better in person! We put the beach wagon & chairs to good use. We only used the elevator on check in & check out days. It was very handy! The stairs weren't that bad but with all the food and luggage it would've been no fun. The second floor Primary bedroom had a HUGE closet and shower. The King bed was also very comfortable! Bedding and linens were of good quality. I brought pillows, towels and blankets just in case but didn"t need them. The TV was an added bonus but I really didn't spend that much time in the room to use it. The room with the bunk beds and futon were enjoyed by the kids. The porch on the 2nd floor was nice with the rocking chairs to sit on when it was raining. Very quiet street, lots of houses around and still quiet. The laundry machine was helpful to wash beach towels and I went home with clean laundry which was a plus. The top floor is where we spent the most time. It felt very comfortable, like home. The Primary bedroom and bathroom had no complaints. I didn't sleep in there or go in there so I can't write a fair review. That bathroom is the only one on that floor. I would always go downstairs to mine but it is good to know for planning. The kitchen is huge! We made spaghetti and tacos during our stay. There is ample seating at a formal dining table, a high bistro table (with a nice view of the ocean) and at the kitchen counter (on high stools.) The couches are so comfortable with lots of pillows. Side tables and coffee tables made for easy snack and drink spots while relaxing on the couch. The top floor porch was my favorite. I liked the high chairs to sit and listen to the ocean. I also appreciated the ceiling fans! You will surely enjoy this location as we did!

Great Stay Great Communication
5/5 stars
We enjoyed our stay at Bella Playa very much. The info provided online was very accurate with respect to the amenities. The walk to the beach was as advertised - public beach access just across the main street from the house. The house is very bright and cheerful and very clean. They did a great job communicating with us, checking in via text and email both. We had a few questions while we were there and the team was very responsive to us and checked in mid-week as well. Highly recommend Bella Playa for your vacation!

Perfect family destination
5/5 stars
My siblings and I booked Bella Playa for our annual vacation. There were 6 of us total and the house was very spacious. The bedrooms and bathrooms were all clean and beautiful. The home has an open floor concept on the top level which was perfect when some of us were cooking and others just hanging out. The garage had all the perfect beach amenities - ping pong table, grill and beach chairs. The folks at iTrip were extremely responsive before and during the trip. They even posted a Sign saying Happy Birthday to my brother and sister (twins). I’m so glad for the experience we had at Bella Playa and will gladly book w iTrip in the future.
