Private Home, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps max 6) - tranquil oceanfront setting
- english, spanish
We wanted a retreat on the ocean, close to diving and other water sports and we found a perfect place here at Los Encantos! We go into San Pedro town regularly, but often enjoy staying here and barbequing or simply relaxing.
Sally purchased this House in 2005
Why Sally chose San Pedro
We are close to San Pedro town but far enough away that you have your 'private Caribbean'. All dive shops and snorkel and fishing guides will pick you up from our private pier, shown in the photo. Restaurants and bars are a walk up or down the beach.
What makes this House unique
Villa La Jolla at Los Encantos is a private home, one of four homes that comprise Los Encantos. It is located directly on the ocean, with nothing impeding your view of the beautiful Caribbean from nearly any spot in the house.

Villa La Holla
This property is wonderful. We had a great week. The caretakers Harley and Nevia will help you with anything you need. We went fishing and snorkeling with Clinton from Ali Mermaid adventures and it was fantastic. Secret Beach is the place to go, Blue Bayou. Also we ate dinner in San Pedro at My Place Steak House. Definitely will be back again.
Thank you so much for taking time to write about your visit at Villa La Jolla! We're delighted that your family had such a nice visit. We, too, think Harly and Nevia are fantastic. Please visit us again soon!
Loved the ocean breeze!
We had a great stay. The house could use a little updating. The most disappointing issue was, we could not swim in front of the house. When taking three kids between the ages of 12 and 8, having the beach so close seemed so appe
We're glad you had a great stay. The photos of our home on VRBO accurately picture our furnishings - handmade with pride from local wood by Belizean craftsmen.
Great villa on a great property
We really enjoyed our time in Belize, the villa and property was fantastic, the tours we did were great and the caretakers are amazing, overall we had a great 2 weeks.
The only down sides were the sea grass which you can avoid at secret beach but makes the Caribbean coastline mostly inaccessible from the beach. It was also a little far from Ambergris Caye to the mainland to take advantage of some of the tours, we did the atm cave tour which was a highlight but an extremely long day
In hindsight we may have been better off splitting our time between Ambergris and the mainland, but as far as a place to stay on Ambergris Caye I’d highly recommend the villa La Jolla
Thank you very much for staying at Villa La Jolla and for your wonderful comments. We're so glad your family had fun. I hope we can welcome you back sometime soon.
Relax and Explore
We searched several areas before finding Villa La Jolla. It was perfect for our family adventure. We arrived in a storm which knocked out power to the entire island. Caye Management was very helpful and accommodating. The owner ,Sally, although in the states was excellent about offering support and communicating with us regularly. The AC was great but to be honest we loved relaxing on the dock or on the upper porch which was always comfortable with the breeze. We followed the managements recommendation to use White Sands Dive Shop who picked us up at our dock and taught us all to dive. We didn’t rent a golf cart and used the water taxi to visit San Pedro. We liked the quiet so the distance from town was not a problem. Pool is great as is all the space in the house. Would definitely rent this home again.
We are so glad your search led you to Villa La Jolla! Thank you for taking time to write about your visit. And, it is wonderful that you learned to dive! We hope to welcome you back soon to our beautiful slice of the Caribbean, where you can dive every day and come home to relax on the porch, overlooking the ocean. Please visit again soon.
Fantastic! You won't be diappointed!
There were 6 of us (4 adults and 2 kids) that stayed in the Villa for 7 nights. The Villa is North of San Pedro and away from the hustle and bustle. However, with our golf carts, we had the freedom to visit town whenever we liked. Our family spent many hours on the beautiful Veranda overlooking the ocean and enjoying the island breezes. We loved the Villa's proximity to Secret Beach (be sure to go - we loved it so much, we went multiple times). The Villa was spotless and beds were very comfortable. The pool was the perfect temperature. Nevia and Harley are the caretakers onsite and they are AMAZING! They were waiting for us when we arrived, provided an overview of information, helped us plan excursions and were available to us throughout our entire stay. I can't say enough about the wonderful experience that we had - Thank you to the owners and caretakers for helping our family create such beautiful memories.!
The Villa La Jolla team, including Mr. Harley and Miss Nevia and Caye Management, are so appreciative of your taking time to review your stay with us. We’re delighted that you enjoyed the house, our property and the fun things nearby. We, too, have always enjoyed the proximity to town combined with the peacefulness of our location.
We hope you can return soon to perch on the veranda, overlooking the lovely Caribbean Sea, at Villa La Jolla.
It was a smooth transaction and great location. People are friendly.
Thank you so much for sharing your comments. And, we hope you'll visit Villa La Jolla again soon!
Local guides and dive shops will pick you up from our private pier and take you for a day of adventure: snorkel, fish, SCUBA, beach barbeque. Also, day trips to inland Belize and Mayan ruins, cave tubing and jungle tours are easily arranged through our on-island rental management company. We have a caretaker and housekeeper that live on the property - ready with answers to any questions. All the privacy of a home, within easy reach of San Pedro town and other adventures.
A note about getting around on the island. We prefer going by water - private water taxi or Coastal ferry - or by bike or by foot. Some of our guests have rented golf carts and our on-island rental manager can assist you with that.
