Summary

This is a great tent for the family. Numerous times — in terrible rain — we have stayed dry. It even accommodates 2 full size mattresses!

Pros

  • Large
  • Dry
  • 2 doors

Cons

  • The vestibule could be larger.

We really like the tent. Big, well planned, and the vestibule has a shelf between the two doors.

One problem is the vestibule could be larger.

Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $200

This proved to be a great tent for our family of 4, camping in wet WA state.  I was very pleased that everything stayed dry—even without the footprint.  

On the downside, the tent was drafty.  The wind passed under the fly and right through the door into the tent. It looks like later models have nylon covering the lower part of the door, so perhaps this issue has been remedied.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Kelty Villa Tent's incredibly spacious design, high ceiling, large vestibule, and double doors ensure plenty of room for a fully family at the lake or a handful of climbers in base camp. Four DAC poles provide excellent support thanks to Kelty's dome-style design, so you don't have to worry about structural stability during a storm. Wondering about space Well, a 5ft 8in tall person can stand up straight inside the Villa Tent, the 89sq foot floor has enough room to sleep six people comfortably, and several internal mesh pockets keep everything organized. This tent even has a massive 20sq foot vestibule to shelter everyone's packs and boots while you play cards through a rainstorm.
