The Blue Dolphin is located a quick 10minute smooth golf cart ride north ( the 3 mile marker is just past our private drive)!! With 150' of sugar sand ocean front that sprawls over 700ft. deep to the lagoon makes our property not only very unique but truly amazing!! Our property used to be a coconut plantation and our staff enjoys bringing guests daily coconut water/meat as it is very very plentiful!! Our property also offers an assortment of local fruits, vegetables and herbs that our guests are more than welcome two!! Our location is stellar as you are surrounded by fabulous welcoming resorts and numerous restaurants galore...all within walking distance or relax by your wonderful fresh water pool and have pizza delivered! Since 2015 we have added many wonderful details, which are done constantly for guests enjoyment, such as large resort size pier with palapa (great for morning yoga looking out at the reef or reading a great book on one of the provided benches), stairs to the ocean to examine the many fascinating sea creatures hiding underneath or to hop on a kayak and running water to rinse off equipment or rinse you "catch" on our fishing table!!! We are extremely fortunate as the reef swings in at our location making the reef a short 5-10minute kayak ride away (we recently added two new kayaks for a total of 5 (3single 2 double) complete with all the bells and whistles making the short ride quite luxurious as well). When tying up at the reef on our buoy you will find the water knee to thigh high depending on the tide, making you own adventure just amazing, to say the very least!! If you are a savey water person you may want to capture your own lobster, when in season..ask Armando for the "hook"!!! Or, when conch are in season one oars and the other holds onto the rope to grab as well, if you have a seasoned eye for this!!!
Mark and I are always excited and grateful to be able to share all the amazing things Belize has to offer. Upon confirmation, we will send you our personal guide of top current favorites and "must do" activities that we share when family and friends come for a visit!! As we have been greeting guests since 2000, we have just a handful of tried true and amazing locals that are sure to enhance your stay and leave you with fabulous memories for years to come...your positive experience is our priority! Star gazing!!!! The 2nd floor veranda swings around the exterior to stairs which will take you to the roof top deck!! THIS IS AMAZING as there are no city lights around which, even when cloudy, is a stellar view..always a few shooting stars and be sure to have someone in your party "load the sky app" for a intimate and exceptional tour of the sky!! The sunsets across the lagoon, so meeting at the roof top for a refreshment at 5:30 everyday is a must and also just enchanting to review the days amazing adventures!! Diving or snorkeling, Belize offers some of the best..I have lots of photo's I can share that were taken right in front of the house!!! The most frequent comment we get from our guests is that the house is much more wonderful than the website shows, maybe it's because we are just a "mom and pop shop"!! Armando and Gloria are truly an asset to the Blue Dolphin and love doing anything and everything to assure a fabulous stay!! Gloria is a wonderful cook of local dishes and has all the connections for fisherman to stop with their fresh catch of conch, lobster or fish if you desire at a great rate! If a fisherman is in your group best to arrange for that adventure the day after your arrival so you can enjoy the "fruits of your labor" during your stay!!! Armando makes a great BBQ and many of the fish taste just like chicken!! Many guests have Gloria make an arrival meal as it typically is a long day of travel and so very romantic to enjoy a beverage by the pool and wander in for dinner the first night! Upon confirmation we also send our guests a menu of her local dishes to start your planning, included is the grocery list for each meal which you or they can collect! Gloria is happy to cook everyday or none at all and can also plan a couple of hours before...we realize you are on vacation and our goal is to for you to bring home warm memories of your stay at the Blue Dolphin on Ambergris Caye!!
We would love to host your stay!
Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: We are originally from Minnesota and have made Belize our second home since 1998! We fell in love with the Blue Dolphin as it afforded our large family plenty of space, private pool with stools for a swim up lunch, shallow end for grandchildren and deep end for a refreshing dip!! The 3,000sq/ft pool area sits on top of a seawall provides a spectacular view and large areas for playing/gathering!! The large private yard provided our family enough space for volleyball and sports, relax in the hammocks and enjoy a bbq/picnic under the palapa! The location of the Blue Dolphin is stellar as the reef swings in, making it easily accessible for snorkeling/fishing or just making your own adventure with our kayaks. The Blue Dolphin is located less than 3miles from San Pedro town, an easy 10minute golf cart ride on a fabulous new road, providing our guests with a private paradise and all the conveniences the island has to offer! We are also surrounded by many restaurants, within walking distance, offering many local fares and experiences...too many to enjoy if staying a short week! We are still, after 17years finding new adventures to explore!! Besides enjoying the continuous new adventures of San Pedro, Mark and Joan have enjoyed their passion of dentistry and coordinate volunteers and help create and maintain volunteer clinics on the island as Belize is still referred to as a 3rd world country and with the large population of children, preventive dentistry has been the prime focus. Another passion is showing the volunteers all the wonders of Belize as well to make it a win win for all involved!! Our philosophy is "Life is a great adventure or nothing at all," giving one child a smile becomes contagious and never stops giving!! We truly enjoy sharing our beach home and more importantly truly care about your stay. Our goal is having your family/group of friends leave with magical memories to last a lifetime!
Why the Owner Chose San Pedro, Belize:
The pool area the flows from the main living area is over 2500sqft and is set back from the ocean edge for fabulous views and upmost privacy. Lots of space for fisherman on our new resort size pier/second veranda deck for shade, reading...lots of space to share with friends and family and still have some alone time! Over 2private acres with wonderful fruits, flowers....daily coconut water provided by a simple request from Armando!! The carved mahogany doors and artwork are truly amazing and full of mayan culture!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
My neighbor puts it so eloquently "downtown San Pedro is Hollywood and we live in Beverly Hills!" 150' of private sugar sand beach! Very private property! The Blue Dolphin is designed for people to enjoy and share the water, reef, ruins experience in paradise with family and friends in the nicest house on the island! First class attention is provided by our caretakers who maintain the grounds, handle your maid service and all of your needs! They are island savy and best of all FABULOUS COOKS!!
