"Bill and Connee were fantastic hosts! Bill met us off the boat and gave us a quick tour of the town so we could get our bearings. His restaurant recommendations were great (My favorite was Pupiseria tipoco salvadoreño - a two minute walk away). We stayed in their smallest condo unit - perfect for a couple. Super clean and comfortable. It does not have a balcony but there is a rooftop veranda - the view is spectacular. We often spent our late nights with a beverage on the roof. The location could not be better - it is a block in from the main drag. It's less than a minute to your new favorite bar or lots of good restaurants. There is an airport nearby, but you should be awake by the time they start taking off anyway. Plus the airport (tropic air) is a good option to get back to the mainland. Their place is next door to a fantastic dive shop (mystic adventures). The locals seem to know bill and Connee well and liked us more because we were staying at their place. Overall I would absolutely stay there again. Looking forward to my next trip!"Guest: Anonymous Date of Stay: December 2014 Review Submitted: December 11, 2014View listing
"We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation!! The accommodations were clean and the grounds were very well-maintained. David made sure we were taken care of....including getting us coconuts and arranging transportation. The laundry service was such a bonus and very much appreciated! We had such an amazing adventure!! Belize was on my boyfriends bucket list, but after this trip we WILL be returning and would definitely choose to stay here again. We cannot thank you enough!"Guest: Lori H.

"The Palm House is an amazing house located in the most gorgeous beach with a reef just off shore. The house is beautifully appointed, decorated and layed out in the most convenient way. Each bedroom is very large and has a beautiful and large private bath. The living area easily and comfortably held the 6 of us and more, if needed. Being an open concept living area we could relax, use the kitchen and dining area while enjoying each other. The gourmet kitchen had everything we needed to cook and we used the outside grill located under gorgeous palm trees overlooking the beach and aquamarine water. The large dining table, overlooking the pool and beach, was the perfect place to enjoy a few fabulously fresh ethnic meals that a wonderful local chef and her daughter prepared for us. Palm trees, white sand beaches, lush grass and landscaping add another element which makes Palm House a top property. We spent many hours relaxing, reading, laughing, enjoying Pina Coladas by the pool using the most comfortable pool furniture. The house is also equipped with bikes and kayaks which add to the fun. To make the week more perfect are the property managers and house keeping staff which are more than eager to make the vacation unforgettable. The house is perfectly managed, decorated, and maintained inside and out. The town is a fun and relaxed where we found the people to be very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed several restaurants with great food. Using our golf cart, we explored the island and town. We snorkeled a few days seeing a rich variety of marine life, bone fished, and had catamaran adventure including the most fabulous beach picnic with totally fresh seafood. Our family had the most fun week in a gorgeous property in a location which is like paradise. Thanks so much to the owners for providing a perfect home."Guest: PJTraveler Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: April 25, 2014View listing
