Property description

Our island home at Grand Caribe is the perfect place to get away from it all; the perfect place to leave stress and worry behind. In a word...it’s “Paradise!”

With 42, 5-Star Reviews...Unit C-4 has been Grand Caribe's #1 Rental Condo in 2013, 2014 and now 2015!

The VRBO Bear stayed here in May 2015! Scroll down towards the bottom of this page to read "his" comments to understand why!!!

THE CONDO: Our 'island home' is a spacious 2-bedroom, 2-bath, 1500 square foot, one-level condo. Directly overlooking the Caribbean Sea and Barrier Reef, it offers spectacular, unobstructed Caribbean views from the front and Lagoon views out the back! Only need a 1-bedroom? Our condo can be rented as a 1-bedroom, 1-bath….we simply lock off the back bedroom and bath, and you enjoy full use of the rest of the condo…still over 1200 square feet! For your comfort, it has central air-conditioning, as well as ceiling fans in the main living area and both bedrooms. It is beautifully decorated with Belizean art throughout. The furniture is of Belizean hardwood made by local craftsmen and artisans. The gourmet kitchen is fully furnished with high end, GE stainless steel appliances, name brand minor appliances and fine service-ware. There are 3 flat screen televisions, 2 dvd players (with an extensive movie and programming library) books, games, iPod docking station, luxurious bed and bath linens, hair dryers, bath robes, beach towels, beach bags, lockable safe.....in essence, you'll find the condo stocked with everything you will need for a very comfortable stay.





THE FREE STUFF: Because Free Stuff is Good!

Roundtrip Transfer (one) Between the Resort and the San Pedro Air Strip, Daily Maid Service, Laundry Service, Wireless Internet Access, Satellite Television w/Premium Channels and 24-Hour Security.

THE RESORT: GRAND CARIBE; CONSISTENTLY RATED AS A LEADING RESORT IN BOTH BELIZE AND CENTRAL AMERICA!

Located on the serene and more tranquil north end of Ambergris Caye, Grand Caribe is a short 1-1/2 miles from San Pedro, the “bustling,” picture-postcard town made famous by Madonna's song 'La Isla Bonita.'

Perfectly situated on the Caribbean, with 650 feet of powdery white-sand beach, Grand Caribe is an exclusive, resort community that offers all the modern amenities discriminating travelers expect today!

Set amidst extensive lush landscaping, there are 74 privately owned, high-end condos, 5 swimming pools (the largest in Belize), swim-up bar, 2 hot tubs, concierge and tour staff, 24-hour security and one of the largest piers on Ambergris Caye. Also on-site, you’ll find a state-of-the-art Fitness Center as well as 'Rain Restaurant' and 'Rain Rooftop Terrace,' already rated some of the finest dining establishments in Belize!

Grand Caribe's Mediterranean architecture is impressive, and due to its U shaped orientation, each condo offers unobstructed views of the Caribbean.....making the entire community 'ocean front!'

WANT ADVENTURE?:

When you are ready to explore the many wonders that Belize has to offer, whether snorkeling in Shark/Ray Alley or taking a boat to the world famous Blue Hole for a 'once-in-a-lifetime' diving experience, the Grand Caribe tour staff can help plan and arrange your tour itinerary. With daily pick-up at our pier, Grand Caribe is the perfect home base to discover and explore the multitude of historic and cultural offerings throughout Belize. Our experienced guides will escort you to the Mainland where you can visit Mayan ruins, experience jungle tours, zip lining, cave tubing, or horseback riding and will help you create a memorable vacation!

OR JUST TO RELAX?:

Treat yourself to a private chef, spa day massages, yoga on the beach or just kick back with a cold drink on the balcony of our Grand Caribe island home to enjoy the most beautiful view imaginable from sunrise to sunset!

Living like royalty at Grand Caribe in Belize. 05/24/2015

VRBO Bear stayed here:


We could not have been more pleased with our experience at the beautiful Grand Caribe. After booking our stay, I received an email from both the property owner (Nancy) and the Grand Caribe; they both are easy to communicate with and very quick to respond to any questions. Nancy sent me a very detailed email regarding the area, the resort, where to eat, what to see, how to see it, etc. - it felt like my very own Belize Guidebook. I can tell she really loves her condo, as she should.

The staff at Grand Caribe scheduled everything for us, from the plane ride from Belize City to San Pedro, the cab to pick us up from the airport and bring us to the resort, even down to stocking the kitchen with food and drinks upon arrival! Did I mention they do your laundry every day?

The second you walk in to the condo you feel like royalty, from the beautifully furnished living space to the sparkling new kitchen, you feel like you are in the lap of luxury! A few steps in, and you are staring straight at the beautiful view of the Caribbean. Not only are you looking right at the beautiful beach, with huge palm trees, you are also taking in the view of the HUGE salt water pool- which has a spectacular swim up bar with the friendliest staff one could hope for!

Both bedrooms are large, and both have their own full bathrooms. When walking in to the master you have a huge bed, with the cutest towel animals on them. The expansive master bath includes a huge whirlpool tub. The condo comes with Wi-Fi, cable, and a beautiful balcony with the most comfortable outdoor dining set - I read my book while drinking many a cup of coffee on that balcony in the mornings.

The island is so peaceful, the people living on the island are the kindest people, so eager to chat and educate you on their homeland. Get a golf cart at least for a day or two to explore- but there really isn’t much need to ever leave Nancy’s beautiful condo if you don’t want to. We spent most of our time at the pool, sipping delicious Pina Coladas and enjoying the view of the ocean.

Thank you for such a great stay, we will be back!

Location

2 Miles
Nearest Airport
San Pedro Air Strip

Car: Not Necessary

Grand Caribe is located only 1 1/2 miles north of San Pedro Town and sits directly on the Caribbean! Just 300 meters off shore is Belize's Barrier Reef, the largest in the Western Hemisphere. The area just north of the 'bridge/cut' has long been known as the tranquil side of the island. It is quiet and more relaxing, yet you are very close to town by either, golf cart, biking or even walking. There are many fine restaurants....all within walking distance.

Grand Caribe is an exclusive resort and our helpful and friendly staff can arrange for ANY tour, mainland excursion, fishing expedition, beauty or spa service, boat taxi, reservations....they can even have your unit provisioned with food upon your arrival! Treat yourself to the Grand Caribe experience!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Hello! We are Doug and Barbara Johnston and our “main” home is in Bakersfield, California. At every opportunity, we escape to the peace and relaxation we have in our 'Island Home' at Grand Caribe! We hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose San Pedro:
During the many years we’ve traveled abroad, we always kept an eye open for a “getaway place” to enjoy and perhaps even live one day. A laid back place that was slow and relaxed and yet one that offered a variety of activities that would keep things fresh and exciting. On our most recent trip to Belize and Ambergris Caye - with its beautiful azure water, the closeness of the reef, and the warm, friendly people – we knew we found the perfect destination. Other pluses….the official language is English and the US dollar is accepted everywhere. When we first saw the Grand Caribe Belize Resort, it was all over. We'd found a high-end resort that was easily accessible to the Town of San Pedro and yet far enough away to retain it’s exclusivity, yes….we knew this was the right place….the little piece of paradise that we could call our own! Massive and stunningly impressive with it's Mediterranean style of architecture, Grand Caribe is perfectly situated at the water's edge in a master site plan that embraces a lush tropical courtyard, with each residence offering spectacular unobstructed views of the Caribbean and Barrier Reef just beyond. The spacious residences are designed and appointed with discerning travelers in mind and offer every luxury one could imagine. We bought and we’ve not had one regret!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Lets start with the unobstructed view from our balcony of the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean........spectacular and mesmerizing! The serenity and seclusion of Grand Caribe's location on the north side of the cut...makes for a perfect romantic 'hideaway.' Need more interaction or to see friendly faces? You can start with our 'swim-up' pool bar. We are also perfectly located within walking distance of a variety of excellent restaurants, a yoga retreat, and the famous Palapa Bar. The Grand Caribe staff is always ready to make any wish you have come true--whether it is arranging a trip to the mainland, making a restaurant reservation, a snorkeling or diving trip, or even an in-room massage. By golf cart, water taxi or regular taxi, Grand Caribe is a short ride away from the 'hustle and bustle' of San Pedro Town and its many restaurants, bars and unique shops. A boat ride up north takes you to more world-class dining and beautiful scenery. At Grand Caribe you are in the center of everything – starting with the romantic serenity of our Grand Caribe home.
