  • Wonderful

    "We had a wonderful vacation at Sunset Beach. We arrived at the airport and our taxi was there with in minutes. The condo was spotless. Ice was made in the freezer for our first night of cocktails. There is plenty of room in the condo. Nice surprise is we could drink the water and make our own ice. Plenty of sheets, towels, extra blankets and pillows. The pool is nice and we loved the pier. We were out there every night looking at the different fish. The hammocks were an added plus. We appreciated the furniture on our private porch and out on the beach. There is a small market you can walk to for groceries. The prices were very fair compared to the bigger groceries in San Pedro. We do recommend a golf cart. Walking or riding bike into San Pedro was a bit of a hike. We felt very safe and most people were friendly and helpful as we were friendly and respectful. We used SUYA for our excursions and had a great time. Laminae, deep see fishing and snorkeling. Yes we would come back. Only negative for us, was we could not snorkel right off the shore. Quite a bit of boat traffic going south to Hol Chan reserve (LOVE!) and Shark Alley (interesting). We did use the kayak's and had some fun with those. Thanks Diane (upstairs) for all your tips and Beth for your welcome to Sunset Beach. We fell in love with Belize!"

  • Palm House March 2015

    "10 of us including Myself, my wife, two kids (4,1), My sister, brother in law and their kids (5,2) and our parents stayed in this lovely home from the 23rd of March until April 1st, 2015. The house met our needs perfectly. Our parents particularly enjoyed having a separate suite with a separate entrance so they could get away from the commotion of four kids at times. The bedrooms upstairs were well separated giving each family a sense of privacy. Mariceli, our cook for the trip was great as was her assistant and daughter who helped each day for lunch and dinner. The food was fresh and well prepared and presented for each meal. The pool was a great addition, especially with young kids as the ocean is not ideal for swimming from the beach due to the sea grass, which there is a lot of. The kayaks and paddle boards worked well, as did everything else in the home. The island is easily accessible with a golf cart and made our morning trip each day for cinnamon buns at the bakery very simple. We snorkeled one day which was a highlight, we organized through pelican reef and were picked up on our dock. We also bone-fished two days which was also wonderful. The palm house was a perfect way to enjoy Belize, I definitely recommend."

  • A Perfect Family Vacation

    "We stayed at Casa Redondo for 7 nights in July and after planning our vacation for 5 months, it was everything we hoped it would be and more. The house is exactly like the photos which was a relief. The caretaker ELVIS and his son ERWIN and wife were just the most kind, accomodating and efficient family to take care of CR. Erwin, 14, even stayed with my 8 year old son a couple of nights & took him fishing. They were there when we needed them but never in the way. We had 5 adults and 1 child & the bedrooms / living space was perfect for our group. There are 3 cabanas outside and we used all of them. There was so much beautiful outdoor space for everyone to spread out. The grounds are beautifully maintained by Elvis. The pool is kept up daily and Elvis's wife attends to the interior with meticulous detail. There is seagrass in the water at the beach but still some spots that my son played in. The best water is out at the dock, which is why you find docks at most places on the island. Bring or rent your own snorkel, I think CR has one or two. There are some baby sting rays buried in the sand off the dock so be careful! There are bioluminecense at night- magnificent! Erwin has a fishing pole and you can get bait/ sardines by the airport. A larger sign for the house off the road would be helpful (my dad passed it up everytime!) THere is currently construction next door and quite noisy during the day. We were worried about the golf cart ride into town but we rather enjoyed the adventure. It is very easy to get around the island. We LOVED dinners cooked by Marfa, and she gave us all massages one afternoon. She babysits too! I recommend having her stock the fridge before you arrive. The Tropic Ferry picked us up at the Belize City airport, took us to a restaurant on the water from which the boat took us directly to our dock at Casa Redondo. Island Adventures came out to the house and we negotiated 2 carts for one week for $400 US, when Elvis noticed a flat tire, they repaired it without us even knowing. Mayan ruins south of the Island, take bug spray, $10 us each & no pyramids, but historical & interesting. Use Trip Advisor for restaurants. Ak Bol for Yoga. Beach bars: Hurricanes, Palapa, Wayos. Food: Elvis is best! Black Orchid nice & in the n'hood. Victoria House for drinks, very fancy. Rubi Moon women & girls boutique. For casual to go food: Robins Jamaican in n'hood and Waraguma pupusas and lobster burritos- omg! Use Suya Tours- Daniel was the best guide!!"

  • Casita Buena Vista

    "Wofgang along with Eldon, Merta, Cookie and Tiger have perfected the art of the vacation rental. It was by far the most organized, professional, yet personal experience we have had over many countries. They all exist to make sure you have the best time in San Pedro and nothing is too much to ask of them. Juice in the fridge and laundry service are great touches. The island info provided by Wolfgang before arrival is better than any travel book. Casita is huge,property is beautiful, however was surprised that our casita did not have any ocean view (is behind other building) and you cannot get out to the reef from beach. There is no kayak anymore and no bathroom door in the casita FYI. All in all one of the best spots on Ambergris to stay and will return for sure."

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.

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.

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.
