Lovely stay at this beautiful house on the beach!
My husband and I arrived a few days after our friends had already been at the house, but the caretaker had arranged a quality taxi pick us up from the airport and recommended afew places to stop for sunblock and groceries. The second we arrived at the house, the sheer beauty of the view, the grounds, the water and the house instantly put us at ease from the day of traveling. Each morning the grounds crew was doing something around the property early in the morning - combing the beach, tidying the patio, preparing fresh flower petals in the several water basins, tending to the pool, etc. keeping the large beachfront clean and welcoming for us - something we really appreciated. They even brought me a few coconuts for fresh coconut water. The house itself is beautiful! We stayed in one of the rooms on the second floor. It was a perfect private space when we needed to retreat. The bathroom, however, didn't have air conditioning, which sometimes was hard to get ready, but it really wasn't a big deal. The kitchen is spacious and easy for 8 people to get around. The refrigerator, oven/stove, dishwasher and fully stocked cabinets of plates and glasses were perfect. It made our trip very easy. This house is within walking distance of several places to eat or grab tropical cocktails or has a pier in which many hotels/resorts will pick you up for free if you eat at their restaurants. The customer service of the caretaker was pleasantly unexpected and really made it easy to just enjoy the trip without any guesswork. I would recommend this house to any of my friends.
The home and property exceeded our expectations. The grounds were immaculate and the dock was amazing. Would definitely book this house again if we return to Belize.
Villa Aurora: Where Dreams Come True
The Villa is the most wonderful, most beautiful home we ever stayed at. The property is perhaps the best on the entire Island - in the best location. Close enough to town, but far enough away to be peaceful. Gazing at the stars at night from the rooftop Veranda or on the private dock was life changing. The pictures on the VRBO site does not do justice to the actual beauty of the Villa - - just amazing in real life. Best of all is the Villa owners and management team. The service Alexandra and her property manager (Victor) and property care-taker (Urbano) provided to us blew us away. Our every need and desire they made happen. We never had to go into town to arrange a snorkeling tour. Villa Aurora contacted the very best snorkeling guide on the island and he magically appeared to pick us up from the Villas private dock every day for another adventure. In fact, we snorkled on 4 different spots, all within a 10-20 minute boat ride, and all were the best snorkeling we ever did. Staying at Villa Aurora is the best of all worlds - the privacy of your own private residence on the best piece of beach in the world.....and getting Four Seasons Service on top of it. Villa Aurora made our dream vacation come alive, and we will return over and over again.
The house was amazing but it was disappointing that we could not use the dock.
Our over all experience was fantastic. The host family, Mr Sosa and Mrs Berta, was so nice and helpful with everything we needed. We would definitly go back!
Time of my life!!
My family and I stayed here for a week for a little reunion. It was magical, waking up to the beautiful view and sea breeze was perfect. We had air con, hot water, wifi, the owners were lovely people. I will never forget this place xx
UNSAFE HOUSE! NO A/C, EXPOSED ELEC OUTLETS, EXPOSED RUSTED NAILS ON DOCK , BROKEN DOORS AND WINDOWS
DO NOT RENT VILLA AURORA! IT IS UNSAFE, THE OWNER HAS NEVER CONTACTED US, IT HAS MAJOR MAINTENANCE NIGHTMARES W/ PICS TO PROOVE IT. NO EXCUSES CAN EXPLAIN AWAY THE NEGLECT WE RECEIVED!
1. From 7/20-7/27 the only day we had the A/C working for a full day was Sat, 7/26 b/4 we departed. There is 1 main unit and 4 units in the B/R. Only 2 in the B/R worked. I contacted the owner several times and he never contacted me. There was a storm Tues night and the mgr said it's what caused the A/C not to be restored. I WANT TO MAKE IT CLEAR THE A/C NEVER WORKED BEFORE OR AFTER THE STORM UNTIL IT WAS REPAIRED FRIDAY NT. My husband is 44 y/o & had a stroke in 2012. My 4 y/o had his 3rd open heart surgery in 2011. This trip was to celebrate family and life. My husband can't get up spiral stairs and he had to stay in the B/R until it cooled off enough to go outside b/c the main A/C was broken until Fri. nt. I have pics of the A/C units that were replaced and to support the repairman's stmt & previous feedback on Villa Aurora-the units were old, rusted, not maintained & a fire hazard! The wires were rusted and exposed.
2. The dock has rusted nails sticking out, planks missing and loose! Be current on tetanus shot. The back dock has no water access & is used for a trash dump.
3. Electric sockets are exposed and hanging out of the wall by the pool. We asked the care taker about this he said that the elec in the states is different than in BZE, but to watch out b/c the light in the pool is out and not to put your hand near it b/C it can shock you. WHY IS THIS NOT ADDRESSED?
4. Several windows & doors are broken. The MB/R door is makeshift plywood & leaked. The main door had broken panes. Hazardous when it rained b/c it flooded the floors. Floor tiles missing & uneven. 70 y/o parents, a disabled husband and small child-DESPICABLE!!
5. Since my arrival to BZE and since I have been home, NOT ONE PHONE CALL HAS BEEN RETURNED BY THE OWNER
6. In a phone call to the mgr while in BZE, he told me that TP, H2O delivery, and going to grocery are "extras" & "need to be tipped". He said he was using his own $ to "make it right for us". When is A/C and TP extra? He said he was verbally "beaten up by the owner" which is why he was absorbing the charges, was MIA & didn't have the $ for the maint he said has been needed a long time. We expect a safe place, true advertising and to make things right. They didn't provide the basic comfort or necessities. So disappointing!
Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We value the opinion of our customers and regret that the experience did not meet your expectations.
After reading your review, we immediately arranged for our property manager to do a thorough and complete inspection of the property, in addition to the walkthrough that is completed before and after every guest checks in, and have been assured Villa Aurora is in great condition. The issues of exposed outlets, rusty nails, broken doors etc were not discovered and appear to be resolved. All the windows at the property have been replaced since your visit and we are regretful and apologetic that this impacted your stay with us.
The dock at the property continues to be in pristine condition. The second dock you refer to in the review is located off the property across a public road and is not meant to be accessed by our guests. Again, we apologize that this impacted your experience.
We are devoted to providing the best possible experience for our guests and believe that we did our best to accommodate your party. Although your contract stated a maximum of 10 guests and you arrived with a group of 14, instead of insisting only the contracted guests stay we allowed the 4 extra guests to stay instead of having them move to another location as we wanted to spare you the expense and inconvenience of finding a last minute rental. When the only issue we were informed of (storm affecting A/C) arose, we offered a sincere note of apology and provided fruit platters, ice cream and food for you and your guests as a token of goodwill to apologise for any inconvenience the bad weather caused. We offered a discount of 30% as a gesture of goodwill, as well as allowing complimentary use of our in-law suite to accommodate your extra guests. We also provided four free round trips for your entire party to and from the property on a private water taxi.
Regardless, we truly value the opinions and experiences of each and every guest at Villa Aurora and we are regretful that your vacation did not meet your expectations.
