  • Best Family Vacation!

    "As we pulled up to the dock upon arrival, our 10 year old daughter hugged me and said, "THANK YOU, MOMMY!! THANK YOU!!" That set the tone for our entire trip. My husband, 2 daughters (ages 10 and 7) and I had a great trip. We've stayed in quite a few VRBO houses (and co-own one as well!)--so we've seen the good and the not-so- good in our travels. We found this house to be absolutely beautiful. It is extremely well- maintained, the view is gorgeous and Martin and his wife are truly lovely people. There are so many different activities for families to do in Belize--and the house is located where you can easily do anything you'd like: arrange for a boat to take you snorkeling, jet ski, walk to the yoga retreat, swim in the beautiful pool, ride bikes down the beach or catch a water taxi into San Pedro. Some people wrote in their reviews about the inability to swim or go to the beach outside the house. That was really helpful to know and set your expectation accordingly. You are not going to walk out to the ocean and swim in front of the house--that's just not what this vacation is about. We didn't find any part of Belize to be about being on the beach and swimming. There are so many, many more fascinating ways to spend your time. And, the beauty of this house is the pool allows you to do a whole host of exhausting--yet really cool and unbelievable things during the day--and then have a relaxing swim in the evening. One thing we didn't do--but I'd like for one of the guests to try and report on for the rest of us!!--is have a cook come and prepare food at the house. There are a few good restaurants (the yoga retreat and Aji's) within walking distance--but it would be really helpful to hire someone to cook and not have to worry about it for a couple of meals. Thank you Debbie and Nick for letting our family experience the wonderful home you built. It was one of our best family vacations!"

  • Don't Stay Any Other Place!

    "Just returned home after a fantastic holiday stay in Brenda's condo with our family. After exploring much of the island it was uniformly agreed that there is no better place we could have booked our vacation. The resort is in the process of adding gym, spa and restaurant facilities on site and if we were in the position to consider owning a piece of paradise the Grand Caribe would be first choice. The unit is exactly as described with beautiful views of the Caribbean from the master bedroom, a well stocked kitchen and plenty of space for the 5 of us (with one person on the pull out couch - typically (un)comfortable). The resort is the perfect distance from San Pedro and we even walked into town a couple of times (a 45 minute walk) instead of using the water taxi or golf cart. The staff was helpful and friendly at all times and go out of their way to assist in carrying groceries or making reservations. But it does seem that all of the islanders share this welcoming attitude. You can not pass anyone without getting a wave or "hello". The food was uniformly wonderful everywhere we ate although Aji right next door to Grand Caribe is beautiful amidst the palms and twinkling lights. And Melt Café for breakfast has great huevos rancheros."

  • Best vacation ever!

    "Well we just got back from a 7 day stay in this amazing home. Everything was perfect from start to finish. Orlando was a great, real friendly and helpful. We went with one other couple and everyone agrees it was the best vacation they have had. I highly recommend staying at this house, Kelli and Rob are a pleasure to deal with, very prompt and professional service. We booked a sailing and snorkel trip through Seaduced which picked us up right at the Palapa bar then took us to town where we got on a catamaran then we sailed to Hol Chan Marine Reserve and did some snorkelling then off to Shark and Ray Alley where we swam with sharks and rays then we sailed to Caye Caulker where we explored the island for 2 hours and had lunch. We then jumped back on the boat and sailed back to San Pedro. Another great thing to do is rent some bicycles and head north or south (we did both) and just explore. It was an unforgettable time, we are already thinking about going back!"

  • Secluded Island Life

    "My husband and I stayed at Coral Caye Villa for our honeymoon and had a nice relaxing time. The Villa is beautiful and the grounds are kept by David, the very helpful caretaker. We asked David about fresh seafood and vegetables and before we knew it he had brought us 2lbs of fresh lobster and 2lbs of shrimp...and the prices were fantastic! He also came to our door to let us know that the local vegi and fruit wagon had just shown up, the prices and product were much better than what we found at the store...although the little store behind the Villa was very convenient for all other food that we needed. The fishing through Sundiver was exceptional, we caught 17 snapper and had a great time with the 2 guides, they were very personable and they cleaned all the fish for us at the end of the trip...just perfect! Thank you to the Owners for opening up your beautiful Villa for us to enjoy!"

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. 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.
