John has led a very interesting life both in the USA and here in Belize and is a very interesting character to say the least, so come and become part of his story by staying in his former home.
Just 4 1/2 miles North of the city, with stunning views of the ocean, this completely renovated 2 Bedroom Executive suite (John's House) in the Turtle Cove villas is a wonderful place for your dream vacation. The Barrier Reef that shields the island is just off shore and provides calm waters for you to relax beside or to enjoy the many colorful species of fish just below the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean. The water is very shallow and perfect for swimming in. Sit on the edge of any nearby pier (all piers on Ambergris Caye are public access 6AM to 6PM) and soak up the serene beauty of the crystal clear Caribbean Sea.
This 2 Bedroom Executive suite has its own porch with a beautiful unobstructed view of the ocean, just steps from the water and is perfect for lazing around and enjoying a morning coffee or a late afternoon nap. Alternatively, you may wander around back to the pool area to enjoy the afternoon sun in any of the beach chairs or take a dip in the fresh water pool. Or you may choose to kick it up a notch and explore all that beautiful Belize has to offer; including, but not limited to, snorkeling, diving the 'Blue Hole', fishing, exploring the many Maya Ruins, cave tubing, or zip lining through the jungle to name a few. We can help you arrange all tours in advance. Please let us know and we would be happy to help.

Things to know about where you are: The distance from San Pedro Town to the cottages is 4 ½ miles North (about a 1.5 hour romantic walk along the beach) a short bike ride, or a short boat ride by water taxi. Turtle Cove has 2 bikes for free use, just ask the caretaker. The water taxi service is called 'Coastal Express' and operates from 6am - 10:30pm daily. This is very convenient for those who wish to explore the city of San Pedro or tour the island. (Helpful tip – for those who want to go back and forth to the city everyday, consider purchasing a Golden Pass from Coastal Express which is good for 7 days). You can also get here by golf cart but the road is sometimes very bumpy so plan ahead.
The Mata Grande Grocery store is a short 5 min walk from this location where you can stock up on some of the little things that you might have forgotten from in town.
Things to bring from home: Swim trunks, flip fops, snorkel gear, suntan lotion, mosquito repellant and a care free relaxed attitude!
Things you may wish to purchase in San Pedro: There are many restaurants in near-by resorts. We recommend that you bring or purchase groceries for at least 1 day after you arrive. The fresh fruit here is excellent and we highly recommend the Mango, Papaya, and Dragon Fruit. Note that you do not need to buy drinking water since we provide you with a 5 gallon jug of water which can be refilled for a small fee and there is filtered fresh well water available on site for showers and washing. If you contact Mata Grande Grocery via their website, you can purchase groceries and have them delivered for you to have waiting for you in your cottage. Note that most grocery stores in San Pedro are open until 6pm.
Notes about the on-site caretaker: We have an on-site caretaker staying in another smaller cottage at the back of the property. He is your contact to help you with your questions and ensure that your stay is as enjoyable as possible. He is there for your security at night so feel free to contact him at any time. If you have a batch of laundry that needs cleaning be sure to contact your caretaker and he will arrange it with housekeeping. If you would like to purchase fresh fish from the local fisherman, ask him. If you are interested in taking a day trip somewhere be sure to ask him that too.
This peaceful property opens up to miles of beautiful turquoise waters and white sand beach. The climate here is wonderful and the local Belizeans are warm and friendly people. We are certain you will enjoy your stay with us. Don't miss out on this great opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the island!
