Open Thread: Belavi Gazebo with Netting

This post contains affiliate links.

Although Aldi is a small inventory grocery store, in recent years it has shown a willingness to go big. That’s how we’ve seen the likes of futons, mattresses, lawn mowers, and even table tennis tables. Aldi is still picky about how many big things it will stock at any one time, but few things seem out of bounds anymore. If it exists, it seems like, at some point, Aldi will sell it.

The grocer has a pretty solid annual offering of patio furniture. We’ve owned both a glider and a swing for years, and we’ve seen patio furniture and other décor in the store as well. Most of it has been under the Gardenline house brand. That seems to be changing, though, as Aldi has recently started selling outdoor furniture under the Belavi label.

What We Know:

Belavi Gazebo with NettingThe Belavi Gazebo with Netting (Product Code: 7884) is an Aldi Find, which means its only in stores for a limited time. Aldi will not be restocking it until next year at least, so if you want it, you’ll want to get it as soon as it hits stores. Remember Aldi does not offer online ordering for its specials either, so if it’s sold out at your local store, that’s it.

At the time of this post, it costs $169.99. It’s one of the more expensive products Aldi sells, although the price is on the lower end compared to other gazebos out there. It is is backed by a one-year warranty.

According to Aldi, the gazebo’s features include:

  • a two-tier roof that allows for air flow
  • sliding netted curtains that keep out unwanted pests
  • a heavy-duty steel frame with powder-coated finish
  • a water-repellent gray canopy with detachable black netting

Fully assembled, the gazebo is 10 feet wide and deep, and 9 feet tall.

What We Don’t Know

We haven’t tested this gazebo, so we haven’t been able to see how well it assembles or holds up over time. We’d love to hear from people who have, though. Our goal with open thread posts like this is to offer a place for people to share about their experiences with a product.


Do you have experience with this gazebo? Let us know in the comments.

  1. We have three Aldi’s in Lancaster, PA. Two of the three have not gotten the gazebo in and do not know when and if they will be getting. My mom checked at the Aldi in Dickson CIty, PA and they had the same response. They must be stuck in the Suez Canal. My back yard faces the South. It’s almost impossible to be out there mid-day. I’d love to get my hand on something like this because of the price point and hopefully the shade it can provide.

  2. I just purchased the Belavi patio canopy today at Aldis, I’m interested in replacement canopies for this unit. I’ve had a canopy almost identical to it for over -15-years and have found the fabric canopy as they a subjected to tremendous beatings from sun & weather tend to weaken and develop tears over time. If anyone knows about canopies please let me know. I’d be looking for two. I’d settle for contact info on Belavi or if Aldis will carry the replacement canopies…..Thanks In Advance- Mike B.

  3. I bought one today. Once we set it up, I’ll post my review.

  4. I have French doors. I need to know, how wide is the half of the leg-that would be next to the wall.

  5. Indy….!!!

  6. I just purchases mine in Ft. Myers, FL on Wednesday. We are setting it up this weekend. I’ll post again to let you know how it went.

  7. It is hot or miss which one has it. They all getting them at different times. I went to 4 differing locations in the Charlotte Nic area over the last 3 days and finally found one. The location just got it and had multiple.

    Can anyone tell me if it’s hard to put together need to gear up for tomorrow lol

    • I actually put it together in about 2 hours. It may have been faster if I had a 2nd person to help, but the family loves it. I’m just trying to figure out the purpose of the 8 holes on the top of the canopy, I’m guessing something with rain.

      I was trying to post a picture but I can’t figure it out

      • Thank u so much. I was supposed to put mine up today but all my kids disappeared lol and my husband is working late.

  9. We purchased one yesterday. We will put it together this weekend.

    My Aldi in Wauwatosa had 2. I purchased 1 of them! Setting up today. I will post updates.

  11. Bill Schwartz- If you find a matching canopy please drop me a note here as I have the same concerns as you and would like to get a couple of spares…..Thanks in advance ….Mike Black- Indy

    • I’d like a replacement and a spare, as setting it up here in Wesley Chapel, FL one of the inner seams ripped a little already, so to those setting it up, be a little careful.

  12. Hey I got one from my mom. She brought for me as a gift for mothers day. (Early Gift). They sell the same one at Big Lots, so if any of you need one they are at those stores as well. I live in Florida, my main concern is that we experience lots of hurricanes so im not sure this will hold. Im thinking of taking down before hurricane season. So the only thing that I’m not so happy about is that I would have to remove and remount. And ideas? Or suggests for me please? Thank yoi

  13. I bought the gazebo last year and had it bolted to my deck. It was great. But I neglected to take the canopy off in winter and the snow caused the top to cave in so I just need to replace all the hardware and canopy. Anyone familiar with last years Gardenline gazebo know if this new company’s canopy are made the same? I don’t want to have to unbolt the sides of the on I have if I can just replace all of the top.

  14. Hello…I just got mine, as well. I love Aldi’s products. This is a big purchase, soI have a couple of questions, I guess, for those who have gotten it already. The first one is about the guarantee, which I know is for a year, but what happens if something happens to it.. I read some comments about ripping, for example. If they are limited, Aldi would not be able to replace it.. is that correct or is there an alternative. The second question is about UV protection. I didn’t see anything about it on the box. Does it indicate something about it in the information inside? If it doesn’t have any protection against UV rays, does someone know if there is something to put to the fabric for that matter? Thank you in advance for your input =)

  15. Are there holes in the legs so it can be bolted to a deck?

    • Mine has a metal cross member at 45 degrees between each two leg sections. I think there is a hole in it, but over the cross member I put two heavy paver stones on each to avoid permanent bolting. For a predicted high-wind store I took the top off. No problems. Careful…find and file any sharp edge or burrs right away. It WILL rip the fabric while assembling or after!

      • Ooops…correction…
        I just checked. No cross member but each leg section does have holes.
        I used rectangular pavers laid at 45 degrees onto the two leg sections.

    My boys put mine up this weekend but when I was reading the User Manual it says, “The canopy is not waterproof and not intended for use in the rain. The water will sit easily on top of the canopy fabric and severely damage the gazebo. Do not use or set up in rainy, windy or stormy conditions.” BUT in the product description above…it says “waterproof”???????
