About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 7+)

You are invited to discover a true island paradise. Casa Rana is a designer luxury home that is the perfect place for your Caribbean adventure. Located 20 minutes north of San Pedro in the exclusive Mexico Rocks area you will awaken in your pillow top beds to amazing sunrises. Your choices each day ranges from doing absolutely nothing to fun experiences on the island or the mainland.
Utilizing the principles of Feng Shui, our intention was to build the most beautiful home on the island, a place that would be in harmony with nature, a place of spirituality, and a place where one could nourish the soul. Our guests have confirmed that we accomplished our goal; Casa Rana has become the Number One luxury rental home destination in Belize. Please read the guest comments below; or Google us; the comments say it all.
Day trips Include visiting mayan ruins, cave tubing, zip-lining, bird watching, spa treatments, diving, snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, and much more.


The Unique Benefits at this House: Our home includes spacious rooms and exquisite furnishings, in addition to unobstructed views of the Caribbean. Casa Rana is a living-breathing piece of art, dancing with energy twenty four hours a day. At night the unique lighting transforms the home into another dimension. Bring your family and friends and share with us a most memorable bare foot vacation.


The Unique Benefits at this House: Staying in a stunning 4,000 square foot luxury home with its own private beach, plunge pool ( 10' x 14'), and dock, is an extraordinary experience very few people ever get a chance to do.. Just observing the water, the sky and the sea will occupy hours of your time. The power of nature is here in its full glory.

Why the Owner Chose San Pedro: Belize is a land of many different cultures living in an unusually harmonious way. English is the official language and the country is governed according to English Law. It is a land of astounding beauty, and one of the last parts of the Caribbean to be fully explored. We were mesmerized with the beauty of the Caribbean water, the sky and the island of Ambergris Caye. This was a place where we knew we wanted to be. Our varied backgrounds includes (among other professions) design and building, and we wanted to build a home that was a 'work of art and spirituality', to be shared with all who chose to visit.

Ahhhh, sun, surf and amazing views!!!! 10/13/2012

VRBO Bear stayed here:


You Betta Belize It! From the start we were treated with kindness and luxury. My family and friends were greeted at the boat dock and welcomed by the owner with tropical flowers for the ladies. They helped us carry our luggage to the house and showed us around this beautiful designer home.

It is true; Casa Rana is a living-breathing piece of art, dancing with energy twenty four hours a day. The owners have furnished the home with every last detail to make your vacation a true experience. The kitchen is filled with all the cooking needs of a chef and is adjacent to the beautiful dining room with amazing views. The living room is plush and well-lit to read your favorite book or share your day’s stories with your family. All three bedrooms have unobscured panoramic views of the ocean, top of the line bedding, beautiful art, private bathrooms with walk in showers, and doors that open to the patios.

If you are looking for privacy and a vacation rental tucked away from the hustle and bustle, you can have just that. This private lot has a wonderful hammock tucked away in the trees with great views of the ocean and beautiful tropical flowers. The property has a wonderful BBQ area to cook out, leading to a wonderful 10’ x 14’ Plunge Pool perfect for cooling off and hanging out. The patios have wonderful Adirondack style cushioned chairs to relax on, as well as two large lounge chairs. We spent every morning watching the amazing sun rise either from the patio or the dock while discovering dolphins and sea rays as they often come by for a visit. There is a wonderfully put together Zen Garden on the back side of the house for your relaxation, yoga, or just to contemplate life. No matter where you were, every evening was filled with listening to the wonderful sound of frogs from the pond behind the house as they filled the night air with a glorious sound!

If you want to get out and explore the town of San Pedro there are shuttles which can pick you up for a small fee and take you into town. If you want to go Diving, Snorkeling, Fishing, Cave Tubing, Zip Lining, Visiting Mayan Ruins, Kayaking, Swimming, Spa or Spa Treatments, you are just a phone call away. Diana has many trusted guides and she can help direct you. We took a suggested day trip snorkeling aboard EL GATO with Captain Geraldo Badillo and 1st Mate Justo as they took us to Hol Chan Reef. They were great guides as they pointed out eagle rays, huge turtles, and dolphins playing. They then took us on to Caye Caulker for a few hours of shopping and lunch before heading back out to snorkel Shark Ray Alley to swim with the sharks. Our Captain made us the most delicious fresh salsa for us to enjoy on our trip back to San Pedro. From there we did a little shopping before catching the Tropical Ferry back to the house for the evening.

We truly enjoyed our stay at Casa Rana and know you will too! May the frogs always be with us!
