Bella Vista (GPS: 5.43581, 100.31272) is an eight-storey apartment facing Gurney Drive in Penang. This low-density block has 36 units built on freehold land in 1991. Each unit has three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and is about 1050 square feet in size. The estimated selling price per unit ranges between RM380,000 and RM450,000 while the estimated rental is between RM1,600 and RM2,500. Maintenance fee is RM200 per month. There are also two penthouse units with an area of 2000 square feet.
The price of Bella Vista is due to its location on prime real estate, and its proximity to Gurney Paragon Mall and Gurney Plaza as well as Gurney Drive Hawker Centre. The name Bella Vista means "beautiful view" in Spanish - in that regard, it doesn't disappoint, with panoramic views of Gunung Jerai on a clear day.

For a maintenance fee of RM200, it only offers security service, covered parking, gardening and intercom.
Bella Vista is 3.7 km from Magazine Circus. It is ideal for those working in the city. An additional bonus is its location along the Gurney Drive promenade, a happening place. The negative point of living along Gurney Drive is that you will have noise and passers-by along the street in front of your home late into the night.
Rapid Penang Bus 304 goes to Gurney Drive. More bus routes available at Jalan Kelawei.
Due to it being one of Penang's tourist attractions, Gurney Drive is usually congested, more so when a few more high-rise luxury condominiums along the road are completed. Unless the road is widened or made one way, the frequency of traffic jams is expected to increase.
