  • Great house just too far north

    "We stayed last week for a work retreat, and the house was great!! Lots of privacy, excellent caretakers, great common space, and they provide everything you need. However, we were led to believe it was "just north" of San Pedro, when in reality it is a few miles into town. Also, the pool was leaking (listened to a jackhammer one entire afternoon) and the hot tub only worked if Martin rigged it. But the worst part is the bugs. Our entire crew was eaten alive, and we wore bug spray every single day. This isn't necessarily the owners fault (although maybe fog would help?), but wanted to make people aware."

    "I highly recommend sunset condo. Every aspect of our stay here was great. The condo has amazing views and was much larger than the pictures showed. We had 7 in our party and never felt a bit cramped."

    "We (a cold Alaskan couple and a chilled Minnesota couple) had a great stay in the upstairs apartment at Casa Caracol! Phil came through with all the things he advertised. He had kayaks for us to use and we had a blast kayaking. My brother and I used them to go out to the reef. It was fun and we found muscles we hadn't used in a while (although, I think I pulled a fat instead of a muscle). Phil also set us up with a day of fishing, a wonderful boat trip to the Mayan Ruins, and a great half day of snorkeling at Hol Chan and Shark and Ray Alley. The rental is walking distance to a well stocked grocery, fresh produce stands, a wonder full bakery, and all the local shopping you want. The upstairs was perfect for the four of us. Two bedroom each with their own bathrooms with showers. A beautiful well stocked kitchen which we used a ton. The deck has a great view of the reef and is a great place to relax no matter what part of the day it is. He has a housekeeper come in every couple days and she does an amazing job!!! It was so nice having a week to not worry about anything and just relax. We had a wonderful time and Phil took all the details out of it for us. At the end of our stay, we had one credit card bill to him which included all the day excursions he booked for us and he didn't add on penny for his time and effort to set them up. He is a great guy and was wonderful to work with. We recommend him and Casa Caracol highly."

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.
