  • Belize Island Beach House ...wonderful

    "The Belize Island Beach House is a tranquil place to get away from it all! We spent most of our time lounging on the dock or out on the front porch just taking in the scenery and enjoying the awesome sea breeze. The home is very comfortable and is equipped with everything needed to disconnect from the world for awhile, but also to stay connected if needed (i.e. WIFI). We really loved the positive atmosphere and family-oriented games and reading materials available. Additionally, the on-site property manager was very accessible and willing to help in any way necessary."

  • A Paradise in Paradise

    "One of our best vacations ever!!! Nancy was very helpful, as well as, the desk and concierge staff. The condo itself is decorated very tastefully and beds very comfortable. The new restaurant on site "Rain" was just excellent....the perfect blend of good food at good prices and wonderful ambiance. The small convenience store, spa and ice cream shop is opening very soon which will make it possible to never have a need to leave the resort if you do not want."

  • Amazing Family Time

    "We decide to take our annual vacation in Belize this August. My family and I definitely enjoyed it. We stayed at the Bamboo House villa and had an amazing experience. It is the place to be especially if you want to experience the real natural feel of Belize on an island. It was a home away from home for us. When we arrived, the Cook Camila had surprised us with some shrimp ceviche, Belizean stew chicken and coconut rice which were delicious. Yvette the new property manager showed us our rooms and the layout of the villa, while Edwin the grounds manager took our luggage to the rooms we chose to stay. Everyone there was so welcoming and most helpful to us. The rooms were cleaned every day by the house keeper. Edwin would take some of us in town once a day on Bamboo House golf cart to get whatever we need, and sometimes we would use the bicycles and ride around to get a better feel of the island. The grounds were beautiful with white sand that you can walk around barefoot. The security at Bamboo House was more than enough, especially since we had small kids. The pool is located on the second floor deck that is ten feet high and the Palapa on the first floor was perfect to sit under and enjoy the view of the lagoon. When we were not at the villa, we were touring the town by the golf carts we rented and enjoying drinks and conversation with locals and other tourists at the nearby lounge, bars and restaurants (Kama lounge, The Palapa, Ak’Bol and Molly’s restaurant and Irish pub to name a few). We went snorkeling, diving and visited Mayan Ruins that Yvette helped organized for us. That was surely the upside of having everyday assistance. The heat was definitely on in San Pedro which made the rain water showers perfect for a cool down after a hot day. A piece of advice, do not forget bug spray, you are in the Caribbean, with that said; it will be all smooth sailing and one awesome vacation. We enjoyed our time in San Pedro, and staying at Bamboo House villa definitely gave us the tropical Caribbean feel of our vacation. When you want the experience of nature, relaxation and fun, BamBoo House Belize would be a place I recommend. It is as close of just half mile from town for when you want the party scene, but far enough to get the peace and quiet for your relaxation."

  • Wonnderful trip celebrating 40th birthday

    "We just returned from a FANTASTIC trip to Belize. We loved everything about the house. There were 7 adults in our party and we felt that the house was perfect for this size group. We could have privacy or hang out as a group in the large living room area. we loved having a pool to relax in after snorkling, dinner or wandering around the streets of San Pedro. Alfred and Diane mad the trip just perfect. Diane is a fantastic cook and the meals were very affordable. We had Diane prepare a Welcome meal on our day of arrival and its was fabulous. There cost of the meal was much less than if we all had traveled to a restaurant for the evening and MUCH BETTER. Alfred was johnny on the spot. He arranged all our boats to go snorkeling, to other islands, fishing, grocery delivery or just a water taxi into town. It was so convenient to have a dock where all the boats would pick us up for the day. Alfred and Diane are really top notch. THANK YOU! we will definitely return to Belize and most definitely stay at the Beautiful Bajamar house again."

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.

Shopping for Gifts on Ambergris Caye

Shopping like any tourist mecca will be available at almost any location you wish. Wherever you are shopping, you can bring home photos, tourist trinkets, or local arts and crafts.
