San Pedro villa description


Special Pricing For Seven Nights or or email for info!


If you come to Belize for adventure, Adagio Villa is your perfect home base. Along with one hundred feet of beautiful Caribbean beachfront , Adagio Villa offers you all the comforts of a high-end home and the luxury of an exclusive resort. First, we will pick you up at the San Pedro Airport and then you can begin your adventure by fishing from your private 250 foot pier with palapa on the Caribbean . THREE 2-person and one 1-person kayaks are provided to further your exploration of the immediate area. The Barrier Reef of Belize, visible from Adagio Villa, is less than a one minute boat ride from the pier to Tres Cocos Cut for fishing, diving and snorkeling. And when you're ready to further explore the island or make day trips to the mainland to explore the jungle, discover lost Mayan cities or try cave tubing, our concierge and estate manager will arrange for your tour guides to pick you up on our pier. And at the end of your stay, we will transport you back to the San Pedro Airport.


Adagio Villa can be a vacation destination in itself. Adagio Villa was designed by its owner as a year-round luxury retreat. Located in exclusive Tres Cocos, Adagio Villa offers the discriminating vacationer or long-term renter all the amenities you come to expect in a high end home. Should you to choose to simply want to 'get away and relax' or use it perhaps as a honeymoon hideaway or even business retreat, these are a few of the amenities you can look forward to:

Adagio Villa is a walled and gated individual property providing privacy and security without interfering with the trade winds that cool the island or the spectacular view of the Caribbean from the Villa. No expense was spared in creating Adagio Villa: the entire Villa and pool area are tiled with imported Turkish travertine. The trim and molding, cabinetry, doors and windows are all custom made of solid mahogany, cedar, Santa Maria and other exotic woods, surrounding you with warm luxury. The columns and arches inside and outside the Villa allude to its Mediterranean influence. The hurricane-impact glass in the windows and doors add to the sense of security while flooding the interior with light. The sunken living room offers silk drapes, sumptuous furniture, a custom entertainment center with a 52 inch plasma screen, DVD/CD player with surround sound .

To stay in touch, a cell phone is provided along with a laptop and Wi-Fi is available throughout the Villa. For those who must conduct business while away, there is an office with a printer, fax and copier. It also has an internet access LCD TV and a foldout sofa for additional sleeping for two. The entire Villa has zoned central air as well as Hunter fans in each bedroom, the living room and the kitchen.

The kitchen is a chef's dream, completely equipped and laid out to make the home chef's experience a delight. Cooking for two or ten is enhanced with the Wolf Professional Range and the spacious prep areas. Or if cooking is not on your list of things to do, for your convenience our housekeeper and cook will prepare and serve wonderful Belizean specialties at additional cost.

The three bedrooms are all en suite with queen size beds providing private and luxurious sleeping for 6 guests. Each bedroom has an LCD TV and a balcony or veranda. The Master Bedroom features a daybed, a Jacuzzi with an ocean view, a refrigerator and coffee maker. With balconies and verandas around the Villa, you may enjoy beautiful sunrises over the Caribbean as well spectacular sunsets over the lagoon.

For the 7th and 8th guest, the office becomes a bedroom with a pullout sofa.

An abundance of little nooks inside and out with hammocks or seating provide you with private places to sit and read, nap, daydream or just 'let go' and disappear for as long as you like.

The private pool completes the look and feel of Paradise. Surrounded by coconut palms and tropical plants, the pool features a shallow sunning area where, with the chaise lounges in the water, you can stretch out, relax and rest your feet or hands in the cool water and chill. Next to the pool, for alfresco dining, is a gas grill under the palapa.


Adagio Villa is located 1/2 mile north of San Pedro just across the Boca Del Rio in the exclusive residential area of Tres Cocos. Here, Adagio Villa provides you with the beauty, privacy and tranquility you expect in a tropical paradise. Yet being only one half mile from San Pedro allows you easy access to all the shopping, dining and cultural activities you will find there. Walking is also an easy twenty minute option as well traveling by golf cart. Easy access to town, with yet a quick escape to your quiet tropical privacy, equals more freedom of choice in how you spend your vacation time.
Whether your first choice in a dream vacation is adventure, relaxation, privacy or luxury; at Adagio Villa you can have them all. Let us help make your vacation dreams come true at Adagio Villa.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: Laura and I have been married 38 years and have two grown children and two grandchildren. I have been everything from a guitar maker, to a Mr. Mom, to a custom home builder. Laura began her career as a social worker for the state of Texas and ended up spending 30 years as a senior executive and board member of Legg, Mason, Wood, Walker in Baltimore, Md., including 8 years on Wall Street as Director of Retail for Smith-Barney. We've been coming to Belize for 15 years, owned a wonderful condo at Xanadu Island Resort and began construction on Adagio Villa in 2006. It took three years to complete, was a labor of love and we rent it to continue to offer year-round employment for our extended Belizean family as well as to keep it in top shape when we are not in residence.

              Why the Owner Chose San Pedro:
              I designed and built this home to raise the level of construction and architecture on Ambergris Caye. Adagio Villa was one of the first high end homes on the island and while I was told no one came to Ambergris Caye seeking high end accommodations, many other luxury homes and condos have sprung up in the last 7 years. It was never designed to be a rental property, it was and is our dream home in the Caribbean and as such, there is nothing cheap about it. The construction, furnishings, amenities are truly one of a kind on the island. That's not meant to sound like a boast, simply stating a fact. It is considered by locals, realtors and as our guest comments often make note, 'the finest private home on the island.' There are to be sure, a few larger and depending on your taste for contemporary or other styles, more expensive villas that have been recently built, proving my belief that as great as Ambergris Caye can be on a budget, there is a demand high-end accommodations. But as described further below, along with its unique design, we built this property where we built it due to its fabulous location.

              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
              There are some other beautiful high end homes on Ambergris Caye but what makes Adagio Villa truly the one of a kind in addition to everything mentioned above is its LOCATION. The North end of Ambergris Caye is generally regarded as the quieter, newer and more exclusive part of the island. Part of this is due to being separated by the Boca del Rio from the more developed areas and town of San Pedro. Adagio Villa is located in Tres Cocos, a high end, residential area just one half mile north of the Boca Del Rio. Being just across the river, gives enough separation that this area offers all the quiet and privacy of areas miles further north on the island, yet by being so close, one can easily access town in only five minutes by golf cart and therefore enjoy all the sites, shopping, dining out and recreation that San Pedro offers. The further one goes north, (until a road is built,) it takes much more time and money and planning to get to and from town. Our location offers guests the best of both worlds- quiet, luxury, privacy as well as convenient access to town. With this location, guests have more options in what they can do and enjoy during their stay. There are simply no other genuine private, oceanfront, luxury villas on the island (not condos called villas or a group of villas that share amenties) with all we offer, ...this close to town. One doesn't have to stay here to have a wonderful time on Ambergris Caye - but if you want the finest during your time on the island- you deserve a stay at your 'home away from home' - Adagio Villa. Welcome Home! Dennis & Laura Lange
