Perfect getaway in a quaint fishing village in Belize
"My family and I arrived at Maria's house late at night on a Tuesday and were SO pleased with the house and beach area!! The house is fully stocked and sits right on a beautiful stretch of beach on the outskirts of Hopkins. There are bikes available in the house and a kayak as well as snorkeling gear and it's not far to the marina for tours to the barrier reef. We had a delightful stay! This house is fabulous and for people who need more space than a resort room this is PERFECT!!! We loved it!! Thank you to the Millers and to Janette and her staff for a fabulous vacation!!"

"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!"

"There is not enough space here to list all the great times at Casita Tortuga!
My wife and I have been in love with San Pedro since first visiting in 1999. Now that our children are old enough to appreciate it too, we wanted to extend our stay for a month. If you wish to live like (and with) the locals, this is the place! The house is furnished in a warm, welcoming manner, the hosts could not be more ingratiating, and the neighborhood is filled with friendly, helpful faces. San Pedro is for the adventurous traveler. If you want to be coddled, then spend a fortune at one of the northside hotels and stay by the pool, or select another vacation destination. But if you want to immerse yourself into the culture, the beauty and the life of a local, look no further than Casita Tortuga.
The owners' guestbook states that their renters are considered "family," and we certainly felt that vibe throughout our stay. We will be returning, as we can honestly say it was one of the best vacations this well-traveled family has ever had. Thank you for opening your home to us and for providing us a platform for a lifetime of memories!"

"This condo and resort is amazing! From the moment you arrive on this property, you know you are in paradise. Everyone we encountered greeted us with a smile and was very welcoming and made us feel very comfortable. This condo is the best unit on the property. The location alone, beachfront, close to the pool and bar, but amazingly quiet, would be enough. However, then you enter the condo and are amazed by the views, decorations and wonderful bedrooms, kitchen and bathrooms. We ate at the resort restaurant, Rain, twice during our stay. Both times, the food was wonderful! We used the exercise room and always had it all to ourselves. The concierge was extremely helpful and helped us book several snorkel trips and a mainland trip. One of our favorite places was happy hour at the swim up pool bar. You must ask Junior to make you a Buen Amigo. He is a great asset to that bar, always attentive and very polite. We spent most of our mornings on the swim platform of the dock. We loved the ladder access to the water and enjoyed snorkeling around the dock when we weren't on the reef. We highly recommend renting a kayak and paddling out to one of the buoys near the reef to snorkel. Some of our favorite restaurants offsite were: Blue Water Grille on the beach in San Pedro, Palapas for a casual dinner and drinks, Elvi's Kitchen in town, and Pirates Treasure for lionfish after seeing them on the reef. We recommend renting a golf cart for all or part of your vacation. It is great to have access to town and to explore other parts of the island. The only downside to the whole trip was that darn seaweed that constantly washes up on shore. The maintenance crew work hard everyday to clear it. Luckily, when you are swimming off the dock, or near the reef, it isn't an issue. We definitely will be back to visit Belize and this great condo."
