The house was amazing but it was disappointing that we could not use the dock.

  • 4 of 5

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!

UNSAFE HOUSE! NO A/C, EXPOSED ELEC OUTLETS, EXPOSED RUSTED NAILS ON DOCK , BROKEN DOORS AND WINDOWS

  • 1 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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.

Above and beyond any expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The listing and pictures were accurate, and even more inspiring in person! The house and sandy beach were well-kept, and the beach was maintained each day to dispose of any sea-grass that washed up overnite. We felt safe the entire time, even when walking to restaurants a few properties down. The concierge (Armando) was gracious and kind, and not only helped us get safe, secure, and fast travel to the house, but also helped line up any excursions we wanted during our stay. He also assisted us with any questions about the area, and even would deliver our groceries from a list we gave him. The caretaker (Marlon) was always available and would help us find the best snorkeling spots, as well as made the most AMAZING meals (and homemade tortillas) we ate our entire time in Belize! Their knowledge of the area and fishing is impressive! Both of these gentlemen were available for anything we needed, but completely unobtrusive. All the kids and adults on our trip loved them both! Between the gorgeous house/location/beach and the people on hand, our trip exceeded everyone's expectations! Thank you again to Patrick for making the booking so easy, and to Armando and Marlon for their graciousness and hospitality!

Wonderful Time at Villa Aurora!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 8 friends who rented the villa for a week. It met all of our expectations and exceeded a few of them as well. We had a small snafu upon arrival but Armando fixed it to our satisfaction and we place no blame on him. We very much enjoyed the company of Armando and Marlin as we got to know them. Marlin was diligent about keeping the beach clean and the trash picked up. He is very quiet and unobtrusive but if you need him, he is right there.

Notes: we rented a golf cart and felt it was a huge waste of money. The road was miserable and all of us who spent any time in the cart ended up with sore backs. We rented from Unbelizeable Carts and I do NOT recommend them. Carla was just nasty to deal with. We went with Suya Tours for a trip to Hol Chan and Shark Alley and Allen was our guide. This is a must do! And please request Allen - he was great!

After reading other reviews and others on the island, we brought way more food than we needed. Yes, the prices are expensive but there is no need to go overboard on what you bring. We ended up leaving a suitcase full of food! There is a man who sells breakfast burritos and tamales from a bike each morning. The best tamales ever!!

The layout of the house is strange for a rental with only two of the bedrooms having ensuite bathrooms but we were able to make it work. The house had everything we needed for cooking and most of what we needed for cleaning. The worst thing about the house is the narrow spiral stairs. Brutal in the morning or after a few pina coladas! And it was disappointing that the rooftop was completely bare, with no chairs. But the spectacular sunsets more than made up for it.

Overall, I give Villa Aurora an A+. It's a home, not a resort, so a few quirks are to be expected but the staff, the view, the water - it all combined to give us an exceptional vacation that we'll always remember.

OUTSTANDING

  • 5 of 5

Four of us had the luxury to stay at the Villa Aurora, and I must say, this was an experience I/we will never forget. From the time the Tropical Ferry Service picked us up at the Airport to our Departure, the Staff did an exceptional job of making us feel welcome and accommodating our every needs. The House and property was absolutely gorgeous. We spent a lot of time at the pool on the property as well as snorkeling off the end of the dock (found an octopus in a conch shell!!). Though we experienced 4 straight days of rain, the caretaker Joe made sure to keep us occupied by taking us conch hunting down the beach and fishing in the evening. If you're a Diver, make every opportunity to Dive the Barrier Reef as it was breath-taking or at the very least enjoy a snorkel trip. We bought groceries at the local market but we also enjoyed many of the local restaurants within walking distance of the house. Our favorite was Jamba's, which was right next to the Villa as well as the delivery man who brought us breakfast burritos right to the back door each morning!! I can't wait till the next opportunity to visit the Villa again and this trip has been by far the best place we've visited in the Caribbean!!
