  • wedding and some well deserved relaxation

    "We arrived at the villa to find that the on-line pictures did not do the house justice. It was beautiful and so well kept. Stan met us to welcome us, show us around and to give some great advice on the surrounding area. We had a few days to prepare for a beach wedding and were most impressed when Albert and Francesca (house keepers) were so helpful and were more than willing to pitch in and help with some of the preparations. The wedding went without and hitch (having our own private beach was really a dream come true for our daughter). Then some time for fun in the sun. The beach was incredible; Albert raked it every day and Francesca just quietly went about her housekeeping duties. We loved waking up every morning and walking out into that warm sea breeze. Stan would stop by and offer suggestions for eating or other sites, which almost always met our expectations. The house had some great extras: beach chairs, kayaks, snorkeling gear, etc. which we were welcome to use. It was so nice to be able to watch the kids play from the house, the shaded veranda or on the beach with them. Albert, and his 2 super friendly dogs, was always around so safety was never a concern. I would not hesitate to stay at the Villa Ranguana again."

  • What a month!

    "We have been at Laura's beautiful home for one month and quite honestly, we are somewhat sad to leave. This place is just perfect for folks like us who enjoy getting to know the locals, and exploring the countryside. Having a vehicle at our disposal has been terrific and we've ventured to Orangewalk, Altun-Ha, the Belize Zoo, Belmopan, Placensia, and Belize City. During our time here we've had one couple with us the first week, two couples with us the second week and one couple with us the fourth week. Everyone has loved the house and our accessibility to activities both here and the Cayes. Laura is a wonderful hostess and is readily available by email to answer questions. Rene has been so helpful and is always a phone call away. It is so great that Laura left a cell phone here - simply go to Brodie's grocery store and load it with minutes and you're a phone call away from places and people here and back home. We have traveled extensively throughout C.A. and must say that we've fallen in love with the people here. Guides are so knowledgeable and everyone we've met has been so friendly. Except for the fact that we miss our grandkids, we'd probably like to stay another month! Great place for two or three couples, vehicle easily holds 6, fishing on the property, pool, heavenly for us "Snow Birds.""

  • Perfect location with a million dollar view!

    "We found this property perfectly located 20 minutes away from downtown San Pedro. Just a short water taxi ride away. The treehouse was furnished perfectly with an amazing balcony. We loved the house, we loved the care taker and his son, we loved the weather and the breeze, we loved the diving and snorkeling. I just cant find enough words to tell you how much we loved this vacation. One of my favorite things about the house was the water system, only provided by rainwater storage. I have never felt cleaner after a shower, and my hair has never felt healthier than it did with that water. We fished every other day and had wonderful dinners at the house. We also went out to dinner a few times, however the meals were quite expensive that way. If I were to say anything negative about this location, it would only be that everything is quite a walk away, with very few options for meals. I loved the remoteness, however I would rent a golf cart next time for easier transportation. We will be back!"

  • Wonderful condo in paradise!

    "This condo is in a beautiful location and has all the amenities you need for a week stay. The condo was clean, well stocked, and has the most amazing views! I enjoyed every morning sitting out on the large porch drinking my coffee and enjoying the view. We will most definitely try to make it back soon! The only thing I would say is that there is construction going on across the waterway and it was a bit noisy during the day."

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. Whether you travel in summer or mid-winter, you know the ocean can provide plenty of entertainment. You may not even have to get out of the hammocks provided at most Ambergris Caye house rentals.

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.
