"This was our 5th trip to Belize. It was our first time with our children, ages 11 & 13. The location of this home was convenient to town, water taxis and a great beach. I counted the steps from the gate to the sea.....35:). We had groceries delivered which was well worth it. Phil arranged our golf cart, fishing trip, and a cook to prepare us a authentic dinner. He was very, very helpful. The sunrise and sunset are breathtaking from the porch. My only suggestion is to pack thick beach towels if you prefer them. Clean towels were delivered daily, but the beach towels are small by American standards. Overall, this was a fabulous experience. Thank you Phil!"Guest: Hippie mama Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: April 22, 2014View listing
"Exactly as pictured and meticulously cleaned for our arrival; well appointed with most everything you need for your stay. We stayed for a week in March and really enjoyed Oasis del Caribe and this unit. Carolyn was great to work with for our booking and very responsive to our needs, providing lots of helpful advice and recommendations for us. Oasis del Caribe complex is very well maintained - we saw the pool being cleaned twice every day! The location is perfect; everything is within walking distance and every morning we enjoyed cinnamon rolls from Casa Pan Dulce which is about a two-minute walk. We didn't bother renting a golf cart as everything that we wanted was within easy walking distance, however if you are more interested in relaxing than walking, a golf cart would come in handy for picking up groceries, dining out and such. The condo is on the 3rd floor and the walk up is well worth it for the views and the cool breeze from the ocean when you're enjoying a drink on the balcony or on the roof-top, which affords you a full panoramic view of San Pedro. We recommend Richie's for groceries - best prices and selection, and the small liquor store just north of Richie's on the same side of the street. The store owner recognized us after 2 visits and started discounting our purchases without us even asking. The people of San Pedro are very warm and friendly and we were quite comfortable walking the streets and beaches. For lunch one day, we had Pork Burritos from Waraguma on Pescador (middle street) which were absolutely delicious, as were Frozen Margaritas from Wayo's Beach Bar just next door. Do yourself a favor and book a snorkeling trip to Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley; we used Searious Adventures; they picked us up by boat virtually right in front of Oasis del Caribe, and will drop you off there as well - cost was $70.00 USD (includes Marine Reserve fees of $10.00/pp) for 2 hours of guided snorkeling (ask for Eddie for your guide!). The excursion was the highlight of our trip, even better than the snorkeling off of Curacao which I didn't think possible. Thank you so much, Carolyn - we hope to return some day. We certainly won't need to shop around for accommodations!"Guest: Shaun B. Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: April 1, 2014View listing
"Took my 2, 20 something sons, their girl friends and my girl friend to this great spot and had a wonderful time over the 8 days we were there. The apartment was lovely, the view incredible, and there were numerous tours and options to fill the time when we weren't just relaxing. We also thought the restaurant/food options in town were better than expected. Would recommend Sunset Beach and Ambergris Caye as a great getaway for anyone and there were no negatives."Guest: Tom Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 21, 2014View listing
"This property has everything that you will need for your stay. We found it to be fully stocked with all amenities, the kitchen was great!! My only advice would be, do not try and go down the stairs from the third bedroom loft with even the slightest wet feet or you will find yourself flat at the bottom as I did. HAHAHA You will need a gold cart for traveling back and forth to town as it's too far to walk. If you are divers highly recommend Island Divers operated by Rudy, very professional and they will come pick you up at the dock."Guest: Far north divers Date of Stay: November 2013 Review Submitted: November 17, 2013View listing
