Caye Caulker house description

Welcome to La Casa Azul. If you fly across from the mainland look to your right as you approach the airstrip- you will see our blue house.

We are in a secluded area that is the perfect place to kick back and enjoy your stay. Swimming and snorkeling are right off the patio. 2 nearby piers provide an easy place to drop a fishing line. Large screened windows and doors provide cooling tropical breezes to sleep under. A short 10 minute ride on the bikes that are furnished will get you into town to enjoy some of the best food in the Caribbean. If you aren't a bike rider, gas golf cart rentals or taxis are readily available to help you get around. World class fishing, diving and snorkeling are available through the many first class guides on the island.

This is the perfect place for a couple or family who wants to relax and enjoy the ocean. The Island motto is 'Go Slow'. Many restaurants have sand floors, no cars on the island, sand streets - really a calm caribbean vibe. Leave your dress clothes at home. Our house reflects that attitude. Nothing fancy, just a really cool place to hang out and relax.

You will have decks on 2 different levels to enjoy the views of the ocean, island, and the surrounding cayes. At night you will be able to see stars that were never before visible. This is truly a special place to spend your vacation.

The area we are in has no electricity or city water system. The house is totally solar and rainwater is captured to supply the house. The water is filtered, then passed through a UV sterilizer to kill any bacteria. Since there is not an unlimited water supply some restraint should be used on long showers. We stay for around 2 weeks at a time, with 5-6 people, and haven't run low.

In case of having several days with out sunshine, we have a back up generator for power. We run fans, hair dryers, curling irons, and many personal electric devices with no problems.

Our caretaker, Michael, will meet you and get you settled in. He is a valuable resource for recommendations on restaurants, tour guides, fishing guides, etc. Michael can also arrange for a gasoline golf cart to rent. The cell phone that is provided will have his and other handy numbers programmed in.

This is an ideal location to chill out and recharge.

E mail us for more pictures or with any questions you may have.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: We recently celebrated our 25th. wedding anniversary. Mark works for a small independent oil & gas company, Susan is a self employed hair stylist. Mark & Susan are owned by two chihuahuas; Ed and Bella, who love to travel.

              Why the Owner Chose Caye Caulker:
              After visiting Belize several times we decided that it was the ideal place to escape the Oklahoma winters. The short airline trip to Belize, as well a the friendly reception we get going through customs sold us. Caye Caulker is really a special place to us. Thankfully it has managed to retain it's laid back personality. The fact that there are no cars on the island is great. We have made many friends in our travels here. Hopefully within a few years we will be able to spend 3-4 months at a time there.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our home is located on the south end of the island facing the west. We are about a 10 minute bike ride into town. The calm evening waters and sunset views are some of the best on the island. When you get back home you will have tons of sunset pictures (can't help it). Even the most type A personalities usually end up spending most of their time just looking at the water. Dolphin, Manatee, Eagle Rays, Bonefish, and dozens of other birds and reptiles are visible from the decks. Swimming and snorkeling in front of the house is amazing. You can go out several hundred feet and still stand up. We have several air mattresses to use. Most days we spend entirely at the house, swimming, reading, napping, and watching the airplanes. We will usually go into town at night for our evening meal and ice cream.
