  • Sun seeker

    "The house is in fair repair. The ceiling fan in our room did not function. The bed was really hard and creaked loudly with every movement. It was bad enough that I began sleeping on the single bed in the room so my wife and I could sleep. The grounds were well kept but the beach was a mess with really smelly rotting seaweed for the entire length of the property. This would be a lot to clean up but well worth it by the looks of the proprties that have done so. Thank goodness there is a dock and a boat to get out to the good water by the reef. One stand up paddle board no longer had a fin on the bottom and 1 of the tandem kayaks did not have seat cushions or a back rest. The fuel in Belize is expensive so plan to add an extra $500 or so for boat fuel for the week if you are planning to do a lot of trips to snorkel or go to town. The staff are pleasant and professional. Sarge was an awesome guide for the snorkel trips and is HIGHLY recommended. The snorkeling was amazing. Mexico Rocks and Shark/Ray alley should be on your list. Zuly is an amazing cook. I would recommend that you get a grocery list from Zuly on what she needs. It will be worth it!! If fishing is your thing I would suggest getting a guide outfit in town as the boat was too small for our party to get to the better areas. Overall we had a great trip and hope to return to Belize for more great snorkeling."

  • Wonderful Time at Stella Di Mare

    "We were a group of 8 friends that rented for a week. Victor (the caretaker) was awesome. He handled all of our questions, booked our trips, and helped with our endless questions. He knows the area very well and is an incredible resource to take advantage of. He’s a great guy and cares a ton about making his guests happy. We went to Hol Chan, Caye Caulker, cave tubing, sailed with SeaDuced and took kayaks to the reef a few times. The reef was also amazing…and its only 10 minutes in front of the villa. There were plenty of chairs and lounges, plus a hammock that we lazed in and loved. We had an awesome time and plan to come back!"

  • Love the boat, the location and staff

    "Overall our family (boys ages 5,4 and 2) had an absolutely wonderful time and Casablanca is a lovely house. The Good: The boat: having unlimited access to a boat in an area with a coral reef, other islands and resorts to visit, and great fishing was beyond an added amenity. It made our trip. Brian and Alec: All of the service staff were excellent. They were attentive without being invasive and always tended to any issues without hesitation. Spearfishing at the reef with Brian was one of my personal favorite memories The location: I felt the location was perfect, but perhaps not for everybody. The house is about a 30 minute golf cart ride (5-10 minutes boat) down a bumpy trail to town. We all loved the little adventure. There were other resorts with walking distance as well. We highly endorse Rojo Lounge for eating or drinking. The kitchen and Great Room: The kitchen in the house is huge and the layout of open kitchen, dining room, living room, patio was great and very family friendly. The cleanliness: The staff did a great job of cleaning the house and doing our laundry. The lady who cooked for us the odd time also did a nice job with the meals and cooking the fish we caught! The dock: It was a great place for my boys to fish from. Plenty of time was spent out there! The Not-So-Good: Small things weren't maintained the best. Ceiling fans didn't work, light bulbs were out, the toilet seat was only fastened on one side. The DVD player never worked. Flatware and glassware were both well understocked. Old mattress -there are indents on both sides where people sleep. Should be replaced.Shower Heads -with no bathtub, Casablanca should offer shower heads that get you wet. No hammock: So many palm trees and no hammock? Really? The bad: The patio furniture: For such a nice property the patio furniture is not even close to adequate. Old, uncomfortable, plastic strap loungers from a discount warehouse. These need to be updated without question. Rooftop patio: Beautiful place to watch the sunset with not one piece of furniture. Dock palapa:Apparently the roof blew off during a hurricane years ago and they never replaced it. Looks terrible and would be nice to have more shade at the end of the dock. The Beach: Need to keep the beach free from the sea grass. Hadn't been touched in weeks on our arrival and it smelt awful I think a minimal capital investment by the ownership could bring the house in line with what they claim it to be and gain 5 stars from me."

  • Lovely Condo, Great Owner, outstanding staff!

    "Beautiful resort with outstanding grounds, pool, location restaurant and location (a short golf cart ride from town, recommend you rent a golf cart if you are there for a week or more) The condo was stunning, VERY roomy (we were two couples) with top notch accoutrements! As a long-time VRBO client who has rented many NICE properties, this was the best with a kitchen outfitted for the most discerning chef! However- construction in the unit above us was VERY noisy, from sun-up to after sun down."

Important Facts of Ambergris Caye House Rentals

Before traveling to any country, you should know when to go and a little about the destination. Belize is in Central America where the weather is great all year-round, though it can rain in the afternoons during the summers and spring. Near rainforest areas, you can expect Belize to be verdant and brilliant with colors such as the picturesque mangrove swamps. Ambergris is not on the mainland of Belize; instead, it's a key in the northern section of the country. On one side you have the Caribbean and on the other side is a small bay. The key is 1.6 kilometers wide and 40 kilometers in length. Much of the island is ringed with white, sandy beaches.

Ambergris Caye Villas Near the Maya Community of the Past

Belize, like much of Central America, was founded with the Mayan culture. Ambergris Caye was home to a Mayan community during the pre-Columbian times. Archaeologists have found red ceramics, bones, and ruins to support their knowledge about the Mayan culture. Not far from Ambergris Caye villas is a most important Mayan ruin. You can really see how the Mayans lived and learn about their culture by visiting Altun Ha and Xunantunich.

Temptation is Just a Short Boat Ride Away at Ambergris Caye

Ambergris Caye requires you to take a boat ride from the mainland of Belize to the key. Once on the island, you can explore its many attractions. Do not worry about fighting temptation; sky diving, scuba diving, watersports, sailing, zip lines, and more all await you in this tropical paradise. Scuba diving or snorkeling trips leave daily from the docks to reach Belize Barrier Reef.

Tropical fish, reef shark, turtles, and sting rays are just a few inhabitants of the clear blue seas.
