  • View the Blue - Great quick get away

    "We rented the house from 08/17-22 for a quick getaway. Just like previous reviewers, we really enjoyed it being our first time to Belize. We were a little worried about the weather but it turned out great. Here's the pros and cons about the house: Pros: roomy, good enough for 12 people. great ocean front view, private, reasonable price. You gotta go with the Suya tour. Carlos and his crew provides a very personal service and willing to work with you to make you happy. Victor, Ana's property assistant is very professional and courteous. George, the taxi driver is very helpful too. Cons: downstair cooktop and refrigerator is not working (Victor, Ana's assistant said he'll fix it the next day but never did) but not a big deal since we can use the upstairs one. The outdoor floodlight did not work but we manage to fix it ourselves. Pool light didn't work. We told the care taker the next day but he doesn't seem to speak english. The pool has several nice coconut trees to provide shade and add a nice touch to the pool. However, it also blocks the oceanfront view. Therefore you can't enjoy the sunrise or sunset from the second floor balcony. There are a lot of mosquitoes even though we brought repellent. It would be nice if caretaker can spray them (we saw the foggy smoke repellent tool in the utility room). It would be nice if we can use the two old bikes in the utility room. There's no hammocks as stated in the description. It would be wonderful if the local phone call is included. Here's what we would recommend for first time renters: - First day, get a golf cart to explore the town. - 2nd day: go on fishing/snorkeling with Suya tour (we caught quite a bit of fishes and lobsters for dinner) - The cave tubing/zip line is so so. The cave tubing is a little disappointed since we didn't get to do anything. The tour guy just pulled us through the whole time. The kids enjoy the zipline more. - Fishing trip if you love fishing. Carlos will take you to his secret fishing places :) Despite a few little things about the place, we did have a wonderful time. We definitely come back here again and recommend it to everyone."

  • 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!!"

  • A Home in San Pedro

    "Brianna's Beach House was fantastic, great location, clean, fully stocked and had every amenity we needed. We took advantage of the beach right in front of the house, sat on the deck looking out over the ocean drinking coffee and/or wine, and took little walks to beachside cafes and bars. Having the bikes was a big plus for getting quickly anywhere we needed to go. Also was great for taking advantage of the tours with Searious Adventures. Highly recommend this beachside paradise."

  • We are First Time Belizers.

    "We are first time Belizers who have now been converted to Believers. Before deciding to come to Belize with my wife and 13 year old daughter and 8 year old son, we thought about going to Costa Rica but decided against it because the range of options was a little too diverse for us to quickly decide about. We also considered Mexico because it's close but spent the last couple trips in Mexico and wanted something a bit different. Coming from Los,Angeles the flight is only 4:40 minutes and was very manageable, which is always a concern when traveling with kids. We arrived in Belize City and took a taxi to the water taxi, which was about an hour boat ride to Ambergriss Caye. We were met by the management company at the pier who then taxied us to the condo/complex and gave us a small tour. What attracted us to this spot, among other things, was that the place has three bedrooms. Since my son and daughter usually fight when they share a room, it was nice to have a place where they could each have their own room. The air conditioner in the apt. Is preset to 78 degrees which provides for a refreshing breeze when coming inside from the outside heat. The room has a nice view over the pool and of the Carribbean. My wife and I enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the kids swim and/or enjoying some coffee or a soda. The unit has a comfortable couch, which is the focal point of the unit and a nice tv with cable. In front of the unit, you will find some locals that sell fruits, cakes and things to eat from time to time. Otherwise, there Is a Convenience store right next door. The building is centrally located just blocks from the south north divide and bridge and movie theatre, which unfortunately only opens in weekends, on the south side. Father north, but within walking distance are all kinds of fun local shops. Also, lots of shops are on the beach and if you are a diver like me, there is a great dive shop just a couple of blocks away. The lodging on the island is a hodgepodge of upscale luxury resorts, diving resorts, private homes and for lack of a better word, shacks. August is supposedly the hurricane season, but we didn't see any hurricanes. August supposedly experiences more rain but even though the weather forecast predicted rain every day during our stay we didn't see any rain. There is really much more I can say but there is no room. All in all, had a great time and I am lamenting my return on this last day. Great, great time diving too."

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.

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.
