    "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."

  • Relaxing getaway

    "My husband and I had a great experience staying in the condo. Everything was very nice and the location was wonderful. I loved being so close to the pool and the ocean. Also it was so convenient being near the corner store! When we arrived we had a golf cart waiting for us and didn't have to worry about the hassle of trying to find a place to rent from. The only critique i have is the internet is extremely slow, so don't plan on using WiFi - but with so much to do nearby, you shouldn't need to. Also, if you are wanting to go downtown often, the condo is a bit far away."

  • Casita Buena Vista

    "Wofgang along with Eldon, Merta, Cookie and Tiger have perfected the art of the vacation rental. It was by far the most organized, professional, yet personal experience we have had over many countries. They all exist to make sure you have the best time in San Pedro and nothing is too much to ask of them. Juice in the fridge and laundry service are great touches. The island info provided by Wolfgang before arrival is better than any travel book. Casita is huge,property is beautiful, however was surprised that our casita did not have any ocean view (is behind other building) and you cannot get out to the reef from beach. There is no kayak anymore and no bathroom door in the casita FYI. All in all one of the best spots on Ambergris to stay and will return for sure."

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

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. It is the second largest barrier reef in the world, and the reason Belize is considered one of the world’s greatest places to dive. Tropical fish, reef shark, turtles, and sting rays are just a few inhabitants of the clear blue seas.
