St. Thomas villa Bella Vida (formerly Maison Veldkamp) has been a work in progress since new owners took over late last year. Since then, new window treatments, re-upholstery, vibrant wall colors and original paintings have combined to create a light tropical feel for this 3-BR villa overlooking the historic Charlotte Amalie Harbor.
Renowned interior designer Twila Wilson lends her expert touch to the ongoing transformation of this longtime favorite vacation rental property with an eye to the personalities of the owners. One of the owners, who is an artist who favors the great impressionists, has added his own works to the mix, creating a delightful tableau of colors that seem to whisper to the mind's eye of joyful times.
On our last visit to the property, we were amazed at how the blues in the archways and the subtler hues of the paintings, embraced the overall décor. The addition of new lounge chairs at poolside make Bella Vida a truly inviting villa - in Spanish, it is "Beautiful Life"!
See the new photos of Bella Vida on our web site along with live availability and virtual tours. Or better yet, come and be charmed by this island delight!
