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.

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.

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!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Belize. Having never been it's a little hard to decide where stay and didn't really know what to expect. We didn't want big crowds so we chose the Placencia penninsula. As a family of 5 we opt for house rentals instead of hotels. It was very easy to book with Ken and I couldn't have been happier with our choice. If you need 5 star resorts, this isn't the place. But if you want clean, affordable, well-equipped, and in a great location, this is perfect! Maya Beach turned out to be ideal because we could walk to the local store and a few restaurants. We had a rental car so it was an easy drive into Placencia and we were able to get to other activities like hiking in Cockscomb and cave tubing/ziplining. The home itself had everything we needed. The beach is kept clean and it was so quiet that we felt like we had the entire beach to ourselves. The porch isn't screened anymore and the kayaks next door are only available for rent and not included. There isn't much to see in the water off the beach but the water was so warm we just didn't mind. We went snorkeling out at Laughing Bird Caye one day. We had a few power outages from storms and the home didn't have any supplies for that but we were able to get a candle from a neighbor. The lightening storms were a show all by themselves! We were very happy with our stay and enjoyed a wonderful week of family time.

Perfect Place for Our Family over Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this little house over Spring Break this year! My husband and I slept upstairs, and our two sons (11 and 15) slept downstairs.. and we all slept incredibly well! The house was clean, comfortable, and informal in the sense that we did not have to worry about our active family breaking anything! We ate breakfasts that included fresh pineapple and papaya on the screened porch, looking out on the beach, and we spent our days noodling around in kayaks (available next door), swimming, snorkeling (on guided tours), zip-lining (1 hour drive from Maya Beach), and eating well in local restaurants and "at home"... The only frustration, as far as our sons were concerned, is that WiFi availability is a little spotty so their phone and ipod use was limited -- which, of course, my husband and I were happy about! I really recommend traveling this way with kids; after a day of adventures, we could rinse and dry-out our gear, eat snacks, read... all without being confined to a hotel room.

For our vacation, we rented a vehicle and drove the 3 hours south from Belize City to Maya Beach, which was easy and fairly straight-forward (but with a lot of speed bumps!), and allowed us to explore, see other parts of the country, and venture into Placencia, when desired. We also rented a little flip-phone through the car rental agency at the Belize City airport, which made local communication with snorkeling tour operators and restaurant reservations very easy. We really didn't want to come home at the end of our vacation! Thank You, Ken and Candace!
