Relaxing by the pool after a full day of diving! 08/17/2009

VRBO Bear stayed here:

If you're looking for adventure, Belize is the place to be and Adagio Villa is the ultimate home base. Located just north of the bustling village of San Pedro, it's close to all the restaurants, shops, and activities this little town offers.

This is the type of home celebrities would stay in while on vacation. Each guest is provided with an embroidered bathrobe and slippers to take home, along with a remarkable selection of bath and beauty products. With bikes, kayaks, fishing poles, a large pool and a beach, you never need to leave the villa! Just tell staff members Ernesto or Francisco what you want to do and they’ll pamper you.

In addition to the amenities already mentioned, this luxury villa features a gourmet kitchen with an outdoor grilling palapa (thatched hut). If you don't want to cook, Martha, another member of the villa staff will gladly prepare local specialties on a per meal basis. On our final night, we thoroughly enjoyed black beans, rice, fried plantains, Belizean potato salad, chicken, steak, and grilled barracuda. It was a meal to remember and we all wanted to hibernate afterwards!

Since the focus of my trip was scuba diving the Belize Barrier Reef and the Blue Hole, I spent a lot of my time in the water. I could see the waves breaking on the reef a ½ mile offshore from the villa. In addition to world-class scuba diving and fishing, there are extensive archaeological wonders from the Mayan civilization as well as jungle and wildlife eco-tourism adventures.

Belize is a lovely county just two hours from most US airport gateways and San Pedro is a 15 minute flight or a 1 ½ hour boat ride from Belize City. Belize is a former British colony and still maintains membership in the Commonwealth. Unlike other nearby countries, visitors don't need to worry about the water or a language barrier.

Dennis, the owner has seen to every aspect of the experience a guest would expect from a property of this class. As a guest, you can expect very informative emails from Dennis at regular intervals leading up to your departure. He prepared us for our journey, responded quickly to any questions we had and his staff took care of all the details of our stay. While there, we even had a taxi waiting for us at the ferry terminal upon our return. Expect to be beary, beary, beary pampered at Adagio Villa.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Laura and I have been married 40 years, have 2 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 bar for architecture and consruction 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 a few 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
