San Pedro house description

Wow! TOP ISLAND according to Trip Advisor! http://www.tripadvisor.com/TravelersChoice-Islands-cTop-g1

This two level mahogany and sandstone villa is located directly on the Caribbean. The villa has two master suites with double sinks with another top level bedroom and bathroom. There is a large second level deck that overlooks the ocean, with a comfy hammock and seating for four. We have a two-person kayak available for your use - just ask Sergio, our caretaker, to bring it out for you! Plus, two new bikes to ride around. And, during your visit, we have a local Belize cell phone available for your use - just ask Miss Raquel, our housekeeper.

The lovely pool is shared by the four villas of Los Encantos, Villa La Jolla is Villa #1 on the oceanfront. We have an onsite caretaker, Mr. Sergio, and his wife and our housekeeper, Ms. Raquel; she is happy to prepare a Belizean meal, should you wish.

There is a terrific grocery behind the property that will provision the villa ahead of your arrival - look up Mata Grande Grocery on Google.

Scuba, fishing and snorkeling galore - tours will pick you up at the Los Encantos private pier. The local guides will barbeque the 'catch of the day' on the beach, should you wish.

Close enough to San Pedro town, but still private. San Pedro can be accessed via regular water ferry, private water taxi, golfcart or bike. And, there are nice restaurants and bars that are a short stroll up or down the beach from Villa La Jolla.

Villa La Jolla is a comfortable, welcoming private home from which to start your Belizean adventure. Ours is not your choice if you seek 'state of the art kitchens' or 1000 count bedsheets. If you want somewhere you'll feel comfortable in which to live and enjoy, we're your choice. If there is anything you need or would like, our onsite caretaker and his wife, our housekeeper, will assist immediately. And, our on-island rental manager, Mary, is a phone call away to arrange tours, golf carts rentals, restaurant bookings - anything you wish.

Keywords: Directly on the Caribbean, this large custom-built house, two levels, three bedrooms and 3 baths, is your gateway to adventure and relaxation.

Also, day trips to inland Belize and Mayan ruins, cave tubing and jungle tours are easily arranged through our on-island rental management company. We have a caretaker and housekeeper that live on the property - ready with answers to any questions. All the privacy of a home, within easy reach of San Pedro town and other adventures. A note about getting around on the island. We prefer going by water - private water taxi or Coastal ferry - or by bike or by foot. Some of our guests have rented golf carts and our on-island rental manager can assist you with that. Having said that, the road for the golf carts is a little rough. And, golf cart rentals tend to be expensive. You can always rent a golf cart after you arrive. ...moreless

                                We really did enjoy staying at Villa La Jolla. Sergio and Rachelle were very helpful and made us feel at home. We were VERY glad for the A.C. as it was quite hot and humid when we were there. Thanks, again, for being so helpful and interested in how we were doing and how our stay was going. We all thought that was very nice of you. Hope you'll be able to enjoy La Jolla yourself very soon!

We're hoping the wind will calm down, but it didn't stop 2 of the guys from going bone fishing today and they LOVED it. Thanks for letting us share your home AND THE POOL AND the Cool Dock....and...and...and we LOVE it here!

                                We were very happy with the house and the caretakers....Rachel and Sergio certainly made our trip very pleasurable....from the service to the tips on restaurants and places to visit and Sergio's lessons on coconuts and which are best for the milk and which ones for the meat. He provided us with some of the milk and meat which we loved! Our trip was 1st class from the prompt pick up upon arrival and throughout our stay. Your home is beautiful and we loved everything about it. We especially liked arriving and having some of the cooking (oils and spices) things, paper towels, toilet paper available . Rachel cleaned all the time and was very accommodating if we needed a beach towel exchanged. I would totally recommend your place to friends as I thoroughly enjoyed my stay! As well, your prompt replies to emails and your management companies replies to questions was greatly appreciated. Thanks again for the super vacation.

                                Six of us stayed at Villa La Jolla at LosEncantos for 5 nights and it was outstanding. Everything was exactly as described. Beautiful villa that has everything you need. Sally was wonderful to work with and answered many questions and gave excellent recommendations. Loved the ability to walk the shoreline for miles (can't do that on the south end). Sergio and Rachel were wonderful. They made us a delicious Belizean meal with a surprise desert. They also were very helpful for anything we needed. Would definitely recommend and hope we can return.

                                Recommended for: Age 55+, sightseeing, tourists without a car.

                                Six of us rented this beautiful villa and it was outstanding. Sergio and Rachel were there to assist with any need or questions. Be sure to have Rachel cook a Belizean dinner for you. Transfer arrangements worked great from Belize. Sally answered any question we had before arriving and offered great suggestions for our stay. We enjoyed the north end much more than the south end. Just a great place to stay and enjoy the weather and activities.

                                I wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time during our trip to Belize and particularly enjoyed our stay at your Villa. Raquel and Sergio were wonderful. Raquel cooked us a delicious supper and Sergio made each of us a necklace. We spent a day and a half snorkeling and fishing with Genie which was great. We really enjoyed diving for the Conch and swimming with the Sharks, Rays, and Turtles. We also did the Lamanai tour and another day Cave Tubing, Zip lining, and the Belize Zoo. Mary was very helpful in arranging our Tropic Air flights and golf carts (the golf carts worked well even given the extreme amount of water on the road). Thank you for sharing your vacation home!

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2005

                              About the owner: We wanted a retreat on the ocean, close to diving and other water sports and we found a perfect place here at Los Encantos! We go into San Pedro town regularly, but often enjoy staying here and barbequing or simply relaxing.

                              Why the Owner Chose San Pedro:
                              We are close to San Pedro town but far enough away that you have your 'private Caribbean'. All dive shops and snorkel and fishing guides will pick you up from our private pier, shown in the photo. Restaurants and bars are a walk up or down the beach.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Villa La Jolla at Los Encantos is a private home, one of four homes that comprise Los Encantos. It is located directly on the ocean, with nothing impeding your view of the beautiful Caribbean from nearly any spot in the house. We offer you the use of a local Belize cell phone during your stay. You can add minutes to the cell phone easily. Also, we have a 2 seat kayak for your use. And, two bikes to use.
