  • Blue Dolphin & L'il Dolphin - Paradise

    "There were 14 of us - 7 couples - age range 45 - 72 - it was wonderful. The house easily accommodated all of us comfortably. The upstairs/downstairs bath & bedroom accommodations in Blue Dolphin were perfect -- same for Li'l - Gloria & Armando took great care of the house and were responsive to all of our questions. It was easy to get to know the city, learn the markets and water taxi systems - roads are pretty primitive so we used water taxis most of the time - very easy -- they come quickly when you call and sometimes we just stood @ the pier and hailed them down. The fishing and snorkeling was great -- some of the best snorkeling we've ever experienced. Mark & Joan were easy to work with in advance and very informative -- they were quick responders and very cordial always. It was a wonderful experience!!!!! Go there!!!"

  • The perfect house

    "6 of us adults rented casa de Paradiso for 10 days. We use VRBO as often as possible in our travels and have stayed in some wonderful homes, but this home was exceptional in all respects. From our initial contact with the owners to our departure we were treated exceedingly well and personally. Since there were 6 of us with fishing gear and luggage we opted for a boat charter from Tropic Ferry which picked us up at the airport and dropped us off at the Palapa Bar which is just a few yards from the house. We were met by the homes caretaker, Orlando, who is a definite asset to the rental. He is available, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and a wonderful source of information and suggestions. The views from the porche is breathtaking and was the part of the house we used the most. The washer and dryer were a huge bonus as were the pol and the grill. The location for us was everything we could have hoped for as we had easy access up and down the beach path to both swimming and eating. Although the house is wonderfully equipped with all your kitchen needs we only ate breakfast there as it is actually cheaper to eat out than to buy food. Food is VERY expensive to buy in the few available stores in town. Getting into town was easy- just call a cab. It's $30 Belizian one way, but since we didn't go into town very go into town very often it was cheaper than renting a golf cart by the week. We can't say enough good things about this home except that it is PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT. A big than you to the owners for making and creating a most wonderful restful "home away from home" for us and a heartfelt thank you to Orlando for all he did for us during our stay. We plan on using this house again next year."

  • Incredible sunrises; beautiful accommodations - A Perfect Vacation!

    "A group of four were here in December and had a blast. The condo is lovely and fully stocked. The pool and the beach were both inviting and right out our front door. There are a couple of great restaurants and a great beach bar within walking distance that we enjoyed repeatedly, but we got a cart for our stay so we could shop and dine in town easily. Free cable TV and Internet were also available. Snorkeling tours and a Mayan Ruins trip left from our dock, so it was so easy to see and do everything we wanted to...booking was easy and Vicki was very responsive and accommodating."

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.
