Caye Caulker house description

A true tropical hideaway, Villa Gemma brings a blend of the simple and the luxurious to discerning guests. Maintaining the feel of a rainforest getaway without the temptation of television, yet providing the required link to the world with complimentary WiFi, Gemma's quiet seclusion, lush forest locale and private swimming pool, provides an unsurpassed level of privacy and a truly romantic ambiance. (Note: this is one of only two private rental homes on the island with a non-shared pool. This pool is for your use only.)

You will find the cottage to be comfortable and yet rustic. A well equipped kitchen with gas stove/oven and an outdoor BBQ allows for quality meal preparation and the refrigerator is a full sized unit. A microwave, coffee pot, blender, Belizean handcrafted breakfast bar and dining table round out the dining experience.

Ceiling fans on both levels of the house, assisted by portable oscillating floor fans and vaulted ceilings will keep the cottage refreshed with moving air. All windows and doors are fully screened. There is a lock box for your valuables and motion sensor lights in the garden. The pool deck is also quietly lit for your enjoyment and safety. The compact three piece bathroom features a hot water shower, basin and toilet.

The second level deck overlooks the pool and tropical garden, catching the nearby ocean breeze while providing the perfect lookout point for all the natural habitat and flora and fauna that Caye Caulker has to offer. Animal life includes a wide variety of birds including hummingbirds and many varieties of small iguanas. While away your afternoons in a hammock with a good book and enjoy the early evenings illuminated by the fireflies.

Villa Gemma features a private swimming pool that is steps away from your door. The property and swimming pool are not shared with any other homes or guests. Natural Belizean hardwood decks compliment the constantly changing sun and shade of the yard. Cool off with a refreshing dip in your own custom designed, freshwater pool that reflects the best of the Belizean forest grotto style and provides an excellent atmosphere in which to relax and enjoy.

The cottage is located in the neighbourhood south of the village. Rental bicycles are available through the manager and it is approx. 10 minutes by bike to the village.

Villa Gemma offers an exceptional vacation experience for friends and couples alike. We are confident your time at this lovely property will be cherished and fondly recalled.
