About ken Tanner

We live in San Diego County California in the inland mountains. We have 5 children, 9 grandchildren, 3 dogs, 3 chickens and a flock of homing pigeons. We come to Belize whenever time allows. Along with our many endeavors we also import and distribute Belize products on the west coast of the USA, the most prominent is a product you will get to know well in Belize 'Marie Sharps sauces and Jams'.

ken Tanner purchased this house in 2005

Why ken Tanner chose Maya Beach

We have been visiting Belize every year since 1997. Eventually it just seemed natural to have our own place here, and Maya Beach is the most pleasant and relaxing location we have found.

What makes this house unique

By far the most valued benefit is spending the whole day on the beach in a hammock under the Palapa with a book and a beer. Good snorkeling right from the beach or a short kayak ride away. It is not world class like trips to the reef, but you can do it as long as you like and at no cost. World class restaurants within a short stroll on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been here for two weeks and had an amazing time this house is great we would love to have one just like it down here for ourselves We went snorkeling with the whale sharks and saw really huge sea turtles. We went zip lining Cave tubing and saw some fabulous Mayan ruins. We highly recommend your vacation at Caribbean delights.

perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We had a very relaxing time at this little bungalow. I loved walking out the front door and being on the beach. You can walk to several restaurants, and the grocery store. Leo and the staff were very helpful. We took a couple of excursions, we booked through Leo. The monkey jungle cruise was excellent.

If you want to relax and are not worried about luxury, this is the spot for you.

Awesome location but the property is in need of an update. The downstairs unit had no window screens and the upstairs only had a few, so we needed to use the AC rather than enjoy the beautiful sea breezes. Windows and doors need to be sealed, we could see sunlight around each one - wasting electricity for the AC and allowing flying/crawling critters inside. Linens were well used and worn, the bedsheets had holes. Shower curtains were mouldy and we had to ask for new ones. Basic maintenance and upkeep would make this property a real gem.

Owner's Response: I am really sorry about this. In January I instructed my on site staff to replace all the screens, and I purchased all new linens last month. I will find out how this happened and rectify this situation. I am very sorry this happened. Thanks Ken

Want secluded beaches? Choose BelizeontheBeach at Maya Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This property is located on the most beautiful stretch of beach in all of Belize. We felt welcomed and safe during the extent of our stay, but if we did need assistance, Leo at the Green Parrot was close and easy to find. This is a single standing unit - no sharing walls with a neighboring unit. We had the second floor with a kitchen, bath, AC, TV, free wifi, tank of drinking water, and comfortable sleeping accommodations while our companion had the bottom floor which was equally as comfortable. A fully packed cupboard provided all we needed, and then some, for glassware, dishes, beach towels, even a hairdryer (!). The units are in need of some minor attention (e.g. bottom floor has no screens on the windows; some cooking utensils are worn, stained, and breaking down; some wall lights flicker or don't work at all), but doesn't detract from the view, the beauty of the beach, or the experience. Kayaks and snorkeling opportunities are available from Leo; a grocery store is within a 3-minute walk; good restaurants and bars are within walking distance up and down the beach; and Placencia Village is an easy, and fascinating, 15-minute drive away or a 3-hour (round trip) walk down the beach. We used our time at Maya Beach to not only experience all the beach had to offer but to also explore inland - finding Mayflower, Nim Li Punit and Lubaantun, and driving to Punta Gorda. We had a memorable stay and hope to return some day to explore even more of the Placencia Peninsula and the interior of southern Belize.

We loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Belize and we couldn't have found a better vacation rental. This is a "5" star location with a wonderful rental. Walk out the door onto a sandy beach that leads to a cabana, lounges and the warm water of the Carribean sea. Our rental was fully furnished with stove, refrigerator, toaster, coffeemaker, microwave, utensils, television and ample linens (including beach towels). Very comfortable and roomy.

Close to markets and restaurants. We definitely will rent it again.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time here! The accommodations were very nice, the beach was pristine, and the ruins, and cave tubing were amazing! Ken is a really nicenjoyed guy to deal with, and his support staff there was amazing! If you want to take a vacation where you actually can relax? Go here! They made us feel like family from the moment we arrived! But, want to go out and see some amazing sights and do some great activities? Those same people will guide you ando set everything up for you. Awesome, relaxing, and extremely comfortable!

Absolutely Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation experience of my life. We were picked up at the airport and brought to the most beautiful spot on earth. When we came onto the property it felt as though we stepped back 60 years into a Hemingway novel. Morning coffe on the veranda. Afternoons on the quiet and serene beach under the palapa. We had snorkeling, fishing and tours to the interior all arranged by Leo and they picked us up at the house. I don't see how it could have been better.
