  • Blissful week!

    "My second time staying at this property (stayed a week both trips). I loved it even more than the first time!! It is perfectly outfitted for hanging out and enjoying a home away from home. And if you want a change of pace, you can take a leisurely stroll up the beach and enjoy one of the beach resorts, or book an excursion diving/sailing/exploring the ruins. This home is wonderfully serene and peaceful, and the landscaping is gorgeous and lush. I loved getting up in the morning and enjoying coffee and reading my book, with the trade winds gently blowing. Mata Grande grocery is just steps away, with Aurora's Grill (fabulous food!!! Get her to come over and do catered dinner!) The swimming pool is incredible! The salt makes the water silky smooth, with no harsh chlorine chemicals. A great option for small groups too if you rent all 5 houses on the property!! Make sure you take one of the folding chairs down to the water's edge.....the perfect spot to contemplate your day. ; ) BOOK IT!"

  • A Perfect Family Vacation

    "We stayed at Casa Redondo for 7 nights in July and after planning our vacation for 5 months, it was everything we hoped it would be and more. The house is exactly like the photos which was a relief. The caretaker ELVIS and his son ERWIN and wife were just the most kind, accomodating and efficient family to take care of CR. Erwin, 14, even stayed with my 8 year old son a couple of nights & took him fishing. They were there when we needed them but never in the way. We had 5 adults and 1 child & the bedrooms / living space was perfect for our group. There are 3 cabanas outside and we used all of them. There was so much beautiful outdoor space for everyone to spread out. The grounds are beautifully maintained by Elvis. The pool is kept up daily and Elvis's wife attends to the interior with meticulous detail. There is seagrass in the water at the beach but still some spots that my son played in. The best water is out at the dock, which is why you find docks at most places on the island. Bring or rent your own snorkel, I think CR has one or two. There are some baby sting rays buried in the sand off the dock so be careful! There are bioluminecense at night- magnificent! Erwin has a fishing pole and you can get bait/ sardines by the airport. A larger sign for the house off the road would be helpful (my dad passed it up everytime!) THere is currently construction next door and quite noisy during the day. We were worried about the golf cart ride into town but we rather enjoyed the adventure. It is very easy to get around the island. We LOVED dinners cooked by Marfa, and she gave us all massages one afternoon. She babysits too! I recommend having her stock the fridge before you arrive. The Tropic Ferry picked us up at the Belize City airport, took us to a restaurant on the water from which the boat took us directly to our dock at Casa Redondo. Island Adventures came out to the house and we negotiated 2 carts for one week for $400 US, when Elvis noticed a flat tire, they repaired it without us even knowing. Mayan ruins south of the Island, take bug spray, $10 us each & no pyramids, but historical & interesting. Use Trip Advisor for restaurants. Ak Bol for Yoga. Beach bars: Hurricanes, Palapa, Wayos. Food: Elvis is best! Black Orchid nice & in the n'hood. Victoria House for drinks, very fancy. Rubi Moon women & girls boutique. For casual to go food: Robins Jamaican in n'hood and Waraguma pupusas and lobster burritos- omg! Use Suya Tours- Daniel was the best guide!!"

  • 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."

  • Spring Break Stress Free

    "Had a wonderful spring break at Villa Incommunicada, the villa provided several amenities for our big family and made arrival simple. We've arranged for golf carts and dinner the day we arrived but never imagined German and his team would pick us up from town to help escort us to the property and our luggage! We were so worried and scared how to navigate through Belize and having this help was really appreciated (specially us city folk not used to riding golf carts!). The home was warm and inviting and loved the AC units! The pool was a personal favorite as it was perfect throughout the day. The private pier and palapa was a crowd pleasure for sure. Overall, what set the vacation apart was the attention to detail and care German, his crew, and family provided for us. Any tour questions we had we would go to him or maintenance issues such as insects (as the weather was very hot and humid, ideal for them), and trust me German's wife makes the best meals hands down. We've searched through San Pedro, Belize City, Caye Caulker and still could not find a place that beats her home made meals."

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.

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.
