Great Vacation Home & Great Owner to work with

July 14, 2016

What a great vacation home, seconds from the beach, easy to get to, close to many amenities. The house had everything we needed from linens to cookware, silverware, prep, and more. I had gone with my whole family and there was plenty of space to do things together but if someone needed some me time there was still enough space for that too. Penny was great to work with, good communication and made the whole process seamless and easy. Would recommend this house to anyone.

Perfect vacation

June 6, 2016

Our vacation at La Vita Bella was "beautiful" we didn't want to leave. The house is so nice, the master bedroom is like staying in a 4 star resort. The kitchen and open dining & living space is perfect. A few steps and you are on the beach and we paid a bit extra to have the "beach set-up" and it was worth it to have our chairs and umbrellas waiting for us when we got to the beach! We had a bit of a family reunion and everyone simply enjoyed the time with each other and away from home & work! Surfside is a great community, we walked to the pier for breakfast a few mornings and now for ice cream a few nights. Penny was so great to deal with, easy to communicate with and no stress renting! Thank you The Morgans

Penny Rudinger

Owner's reply:

Awesome! I love hearing my guests found LVB 'beautiful' and the 4 star Master BR comment is great! Please know, ya'all were wonderful guests and I appreciate how well you took care of LVB -- come back soon! Happy Trails to The Morgan Clan ~

Best family vacation

November 21, 2015

my family and I truly had a most enjoyable vacation at LVB. The location is ideal to enjoy everything surfside beach has to offer. The house is well equipped for enjoyable family dinners or provides multiple brochures of tried and true local establishments. This place is where you can relax by the heated pool or enjoy a day or two at the beach which is just a short walk away. Balconies provide a scenic place to enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktail. Everything from booking our reservations and planning out our stay was easy. The owners make you feel like family and are available to answer questions at any time. We had a great time and came away with awesome memories!!!!

Love it! hope to see you again ~ Happy Trails!

November 20, 2015

We had the most wonderful family vacation from the moment we walked into La Bella Vita. The home is absolutely stunning. It is beyond immaculate. The owners have thought of everything, right down to the littlest touch. You can really feel all of the love that Rudinger family have put into this home. We were steps away from relaxing at the beach and minutes away from great restaurants and evening activities. If we chose to dine in, the kitchen was chock full of supplies to use! I mean everything! We enjoyed playing the board games that were supplied there at night. We also enjoyed the heated pool, we loved nighttime swimming- relaxing and laughing with the family after a long day. We really felt very much at home here. We can't thank the Rudinger family enough for the hospitality and sharing such a beautiful home. We created some beautiful memories there!

Our family vacation to Vita Bella in Surfside Beach was absolutely fantastic! I looked at hundreds of rentals, before we booked Vita Bella and am so glad we chose VB. There are not enough words to describe the home. One of my number one priorities was cleanliness and VB hit the mark!!! We spent the week there with our 3 married children, their spouses and our 4 grandchildren and had plenty of space. The furniture and decor is tasteful. We had ample kitchen supplies and made all our meals with ease. The pool was a huge hit, when we weren't enjoying the beach. The beach is such an enjoyable short walk and very clean and family oriented. My husband said, it was the best vacation he ever experienced, very relaxing! I can't say enough wonderful things about Penny, the owner. She is so friendly and couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. I enjoyed so many nice conversations with her! If you are searching for a perfect VRBO rental I would not hesitate to rent Vita Bella!!

Owner's reply:

Please know, you get what you give and you too were a joy to work with. Hope to host your family again!

We were in town during the busiest week of the year for a family trip/baseball tourney. Penny, the owner was friendly, gracious, accommodating and most important very interested in making our experience top shelf. This house is across from the beach and unique as her floorplan is flipped so you can see the pool and ocean from multiple levels. House is very clean and has 5 beds and 4 baths. You can tell the extra TLC and that this is not just a beach rental. The lake down the street was awesome for fishing and the beach access is just 53 steps from the doorstep. We added a daily beach chair/umbrella package to the rental. Hope to go there again next year.

Penny Rudinger

Owner's reply:

Thank you! Yes, I want our guests to have a wonderful vacation experience in a clean and welcoming home...LVB is a 'home' to us and I am pleased she was home to you and your family too ~ you were terrific guests ~ I hope you choose LVB again, too! Happy Trails ~

This house was perfect, location is amazing. Shared house with some close friends and their family. We had a great time, alot of laughs and relaxation! Shopping close by, beach across the street and pool in backyard, what more could we ask for! House is well kept and up to date. Any issues, help was just a phone call away, not that we had any problems, just a simple question about the pool. Highly recommend house for a great family vacation. Owners are great, very pleasant to deal with and always responded to emails. We liked it so much we are going back again for 2 weeks.

Penny Rudinger

Owner's reply:

You guys ROCK ~ great guests who took care of LVB -- so glad to know you enjoyed your time ... so much that you are indeed returning this year for 2 weeks -- now that's a VACATION to envy! Thank you kindly ~

La Vita Bella delivers it all! La Vita Bella means "Life is Beautiful" and that is just what your vacation will be in this beautiful, well maintained home! The owner, Penny was a joy to work with and she has thought of everything! The house was clean and very comfortable. The linen package was waiting for us when we arrived. The home is advertised as 59 steps to the beach, but it seemed much closer. It was an easy walk for a two and a three year old child. The location was perfect for a family and very close to Myrtle Beach attractions. I highly recommend this home and know that Life will be Beautiful at La Vita Bella!

Owner's reply:

And we LOVE guests like you folks ~ Thank you & hope to 'sea' you again at La Vita Bella.

The Pink House

April 30, 2014

All of our favorite vacation memories happen at La Vita Bella, although all of the kids just call it, "The Pink House". We are repeat vacationers, having been there 3 times and looking forward to going again next summer. There is plenty of room for our 3 families (6 adults and 6 children) and it is the PERFECT location. Technically not "oceanfront" so the price is more reasonable, but close enough that you don't need to wear flip flops on the walk. It's so close that if you need to run back to the house for more Cheez-Its or sunscreen, you don't have to fight over who's making the trip! The house is decorated beautifully and the kitchen has everything you need. The pool is the perfect size and Penny has a pool cleaner come several times a week to insure that it stays sparkling. It is in full sun but has enough trees in the back yard that there are shady spots when you want them. We spend our mornings at the beach and then it's so nice to come back to the private pool for the afternoon. It's been especially great when we've had babies with us - baby can nap in the house and you don't have to miss all of the sun! We love the balconies, and spend most of our late afternoons on them, rocking in the rocking chairs, drinking boat drinks, listening to music, eating fresh shrimp from The Fishmonger and making memories. Surfside Beach itself is wonderful location. It's quiet, peaceful and lovely and if you want action, it's a quick drive to Myrtle Beach. The grandparents usually take the older kids up to the Boardwalk one day for some fun. They love riding the ferris wheel, getting ice cream and buying stuff they don't need. Finally, some recommendations - Fishmongers is the place for fresh seafood and has delicious take out fish sandwiches. We also LOVE River City Cafe and Valentino's. There is a pier right next to River City Cafe that has a great ice cream shop called Licks and a restaurant as well, but I don't recall the name. For pizza we like Dough Boys and Ultimate California Pizza. We vacation in other places (Hilton Head, Destin, Outer Banks, etc) because we can't always all go together, but every time we leave, we all agree, "It was great... but it wasn't The Pink House".

Penny Rudinger

Owner's reply:

Dear Konrad Family ~ I love your Momma!! Feel like I know you, although we have never met in person. Thank you for returning every other year to find LVB just how you want her. I appreciate your statement regarding vacations elsewhere - "It was great . . .but it wasn't The Pink House!" Maybe someday we shall cross paths, but I doubt it as where would you stay? Keep the laughs coming ~

We enjoyed a family vacation at LVB - total of 11 adults and children. LVB is the best place to stay. Clean and well stocked with every household item you would ever need. Bed linens waiting for us upon arrival. Ample room for all. Short walk to the beach. Lovely, private pool for relaxing. I cannot think of a better place to vacation! Pack your swimsuit and beach towel and you'll be set for the week!

Penny Rudinger

Owner's reply:

I am pleased you found LVB clean & well stocked - just what we are going for. Thank you kindly ~ Hope to see ya'all again!
