  • 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!"

  • Beautiful property for a relaxing vacation

    "Villa Natalia fulfilled all of our needs for both relaxation and adventures in San Pedro. The property was spacious, clean and well maintained. The modernly designed kitchen was especially well-equipped and and the grill available to us was massive! One of the highlights our vacation was sipping coffee around the table on the ocean-front deck. Tranquility Beach Resort, which houses Villa Natalia, has beautiful grounds and a comfortable pool area. We spent time every day on the beach or in the pool on the property. Armando, the groundskeeper, was a pleasant fellow who did a fabulous job taking care of our needs (water refills / giving us fresh coconut water). We also enjoyed having a few eating establishments within walking distance of the condo (although it should be noted that some of the establishments where starting to close for a few week-months because of the arrival of the slow season). The condo is ideally located a couple of miles south of San Pedro, offering the quiet we desired and yet the golf cart ride into town was quick and easy. I'd recommend Villa Natalia to anyone looking to vacation on Ambergris Caye."

  • We Loved Casa Amarillo ! Best Vacation Ever

    "Paula nd Brad, Thank you so much for all your help with the trip! You are the greatest people and easy to work with for renting a house in San Pedro. All your advice made the trip even better!! We absolutely loved your wonderful home, Casa Amarillo in San Pedro. Our family of 4 had plenty of room and the pool and dock were amazing. The trip went so smooth and we were picked up at water taxi dock by your staff and they already had our golf cart waiting in parking lot! On way home, we took Tropic Air and it was so easy and a beautiful scenic trip from the air. (Even with our entire luggage…LOL) My husband now considers himself a fisherman. He was at the dock first thing every morning and even had Lone Star Grill cook his fish for him!! (Great restaurant near the house) We were able to go right from the dock on a snorkeling tour and saw incredible fish, sharks and sea rays in Shark Alley. It was so close to the house and made it a breeze to go on tours from the dock. Loved that the house was south of bridge! The golf cart rides were great adventures and still miss going around town and seeing all the sights. So Much to do in San Pedro and many places to visit!! I snorkeled every day from the dock and relaxed and read my book. VERY relaxing and perfect house for family of 4 and we only used the bottom half of the house. The best food was made by Marfa!! We had Marfa fix us lobster dinner one night and her lobster fritters were amazing (calamari too)!! She fixed our meals at least 3 times and wished I had done it more! We loved going in town on the golf cart and even went to the Palapa Bar north of the bridge and had the best time drinking in the water with a bunch of great friends we met while we were there. Cruz was awesome and played volleyball with the boys and also prepared our fire so we were able to cook s'mores and stare at the beautiful stars by the ocean! It was our favorite vacation by far and the house made it the best! I looked at other houses in San Pedro and still love Casa Amarillo the best as the ac worked great and pool, dock and bar was awesome! House was always kept up and we only wish we could have stayed another week! I will call you soon as need to book for next year! PS: Even "Cookie", the best watch-dog ever, made us feel welcome!! Thanks for everything!! The Boggess Family Southlake TX"

  • Will be back!

    "Just got back from our stay at the Grand Caribe and am missing Ambergris Caye already! We stayed 12 days in this beautiful condo and had the option of renting it as a 2 bedroom. The resort is first class, staff are more than willing to help you with all your needs. The maids cleaned the condo daily including doing the dishes, laundry and mopping the floors. Everything at the resort is clean and well maintained, we even saw the staff rake and clean the beach area twice daily. The resort is one of the few on the island where you can walk in and swim right from the beach. We also enjoyed snorkeling right off the dock. Love the location of this resort and in our opinion, one of the nicest north of the bridge. You are far away enough from the hustle and bustle of San Pedro yet close enough to bike or hike into town. The resort is also close to a lot of good restaurants. We highly recommend Ak-bol yoga retreat resort, a two minute walk south for their restaurant and if you enjoy yoga, they have classes at 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. every day. The prices were great as well, $4 U.S. for 3 chicken salbutes! Try the pizza too, it is amazing ? Also, close by is the Lazy Croc, Aji’s and Capricorn. All have great atmospheres right on the beach. We did visit the Palapa Bar about 5 min. south down the beach, a lot of fun, and if you are hungry try the slow cooked pulled pork. We rented bikes for our entire stay at Maya House bike rentals just a short walk south from the resort. We found this to be our mode of transportation as we enjoyed the exercise and exploring riding up and down the beach path. One day we rode 45 minutes north of the resort and to our surprise found Xtan Ha beach. Most beautiful beach, no seaweed, beautiful blue Caribbean and white sand. They have tables in the water where you can eat or enjoy a cool topical drink. Snorkeling at Hol Chan Marine reserve and Shark Ray alley is a must. If you are not to keen on snorkeling, you can take the glass bottom boat. One day we took the water taxi into Belize city and hired a taxi to take us to the Zoo. Great to see the Jaguars and other native animals in their natural environment. Tips: In San Pedro, Belize Chocolate factory, chocolate chip cookies and brownies, mmm! Eat at Mesa Café #1 restaurant on Tripadvisor but only open 9-5. LOTS to see and do on this island and close by, even golf on a nearby island, ask locals, front desk or get a travel book. Tacogirl.com offers discounts for Tropic Air."

Ambergris Caye Travel Tips

Ambergris Caye Vacation Rentals at Tropical Paradise

Ambergris Caye, Belize is often considered the dive capital of Central America due to its crystal clear waters and tropical reefs. Ambergris Caye, Belize is just one of the places you might consider vacationing if you have a hankering to see Central America. VRBO can help you set up the perfect getaway with Ambergris Caye vacation rentals. These rentals provide fully equipped kitchens, locations to sandy beaches, and plenty of room for a family reunion.

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.

Belize’s Wide Selection of Restaurants

Your choice in Ambergris Caye vacation rentals will provide you with a kitchen, and San Padro City is filled with local markets for fresh fish, produce, and other delights. If you want a break on your vacation to relax and dine out, you have plenty of inexpensive restaurants on Ambergris Caye. In fact, Ambergris Caye is Belize’s best place to find numerous restaurants. The dress at most of these locations is casual. For example, Island Bazaar is a most popular tourist spot for local cuisine. They offer everything from local Spanish dishes to Italian offerings. Conch season is from September 30 to July 1, while shrimp are in season from June to August. The piece de resistance, however, is the lobster. Lobster is available from mid-July to mid-February. You can even catch your own if you are inclined.

Shopping for Gifts on Ambergris Caye

Shopping like any tourist mecca will be available at almost any location you wish. Wherever you are shopping, you can bring home photos, tourist trinkets, or local arts and crafts.
