About Midge

It all started in 2006 when we were a family of 3 (Midge, Aaron & Bodi, age 2) & we bought Casa Beya. The 2 years later we bought the run-down house next door. After a full remodel & enlarging the screened-in porch, we have created the perfect beach rental! Now Bodi is 13, Casa Beya has been sold to a wonderful couple from Canada. Midge (still the owner of The Seagrape Escape) runs guest Services/reservations for the 2 houses, while John & Judy manage all other aspects. They enjoy leaving cold Canada to warm their toes in the sand & can't wait to start bringing their young Grandchildren down to Belize.

Midge purchased this house in 2008

Why Midge chose Maya Beach

We initially came to Belize in 2005 for a 7 day epic mountain bike race, which started and ended at the Placencia Hotel. We fell in love with the culture, the people and the vibe on the Peninsula. On one particular bumpy bike ride down the rode from the village we came upon some newly constructed condo which were offering 'pre-construction' prices. We nibbled at the bait and were caught hook, line & sinker! However, we just knew we were not condo when we saw Casa Beya on the market, we never looked back. It has been a dream come true to be able design and run these houses as rentals. We have had many return guests, lots of honeymooners and even several memorable weddings on the property!!

We are one of the only vacation rentals in the area that have a dock over the water and No where else iwill you find 2 rental houses, side-by-side, yet so private!

What makes this house unique

OUR DOCK!!!! (not every property has one) Sun? or Shade? over the water...your pick!

These 2 houses are playfully decorated and designed for relaxation, romance, family-fun, and entertaining. There are a variety of seating options depending on your mood: in the sun or the shade? on the beach or the dock? in a hammock or swing bed? on the porch or on the sand? These 2 houses share the dock, bikes, a kayak, Paddle boards & our wonderful caretakers.

Martin & Diana, live on-site & if you read our reviews, you will see that they add a lot to our guest's experience! nothing but praise!

So, we invite you to check out these 2 properties and share our little piece of paradise with us!
