Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Coral Caye Villa offers beautiful landscaping and gorgeous views overlooking the pool, Caribbean Sea, and palm trees from your own private balcony.

Situated about 4 miles north of San Pedro town, the home is within easy distance of fishing, taking the island ferry into town for shopping and night life or further north up the island to great restaurants and quaint bars. The Villa sits in the middle of 5 private homes faces directly onto the ocean and is surrounded by lush tropical plants and flowers which add to the privacy and serenity of the location.

The main upper level includes a bright and spacious living area open to the kitchen, dining area and balcony which overlooks the pool and ocean. French doors to the balcony allow you to let in the view and the warm tropical breezes. BBQ up some fresh caught local fish or relax in your own hammock built for two while watching the boat traffic go by and the waves rolling over the barrier reef. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances, cooking utensils, dinnerware, etc.

The master bedroom has a king-size bed and private en-suite bathroom featuring hand painted his and her sinks and a large walk in shower with spacious closets and storage for all your vacation needs. Safes are included to store your important items in each bedroom. The guest bedroom also features a king-size bed and master en-suite with shower and his and her sinks. Both bedrooms are located on the lower level and have separate private entrances to the beach level. Simply walk out your door and into the pool or ocean!

Within easy walking distance on the beach there are restaurants, bars and shops. Located directly behind the house is Mata Grande Grocery which can provide you with most everything you’ll need for your stay. Justin and Tami also provide provisioning services so that your groceries and cold Belikin beers can be waiting for you on arrival. A short walk south on the beach takes you to White Sands Dive Shop where Elbert and his team can arrange snorkeling and diving excursions for you. Tell them Max and Debi sent you! Slip on your fins and you’ll find beautiful healthy coral and marine life including our resident loggerhead turtles and even a stingray or two!

Our management company, Reef Management, will arrange for your transfers to and from the San Pedro airport, included in your rental, and can assist you with booking tours and excursions. All that’s left for you is to unpack and relax!

Ambergris Caye has much to offer and we are certain that once you’ve experienced La Isla Bonita you’ll want to come back time and again!

About Deborah Gagnon

Home for us is in Canada. Originally from Quebec and Ontario we now live in the western part of the country in Vancouver British Columbia. While Vancouver offers great weather and sits on the ocean we spend many cold nights dreaming of getting back to Ambergris Caye and the warm tropical breezes. We both work in the restaurant industry and are avid divers spending every minute we can in the water! We sincerely hope you enjoy your stay at Coral Caye Villa and come back to see us often!

Deborah Gagnon purchased this house in 2009

Why Deborah Gagnon chose San Pedro

Having traveled to Belize we fell in love with the people the country and the diving! We then researched the many dive sites surrounding Belize and discovered Ambergris Caye. After two days on the island we were hooked. The gentle nature of the people the beauty of the island and the variety of things to do and see along with the ability to de-stress instantly captured our hearts. From there we decided to look at homes and contacted Chris and Amanda at Sunrise Reality. Chris took us to see the property and when we walked in the door at Coral Caye we knew we were home! We love being in Ambergris, hate to leave it and spend most days wishing we were back! We’re sure you will agree that La Isla Bonita is aptly named and that you will also fall in love with this little tropical island gem in the Caribbean Sea!

What makes this house unique

We love the people the tranquility and the warm ocean breezes that come through the French doors on the balcony. We enjoy lying in the hammock lazily swinging back and forth while reading; BBQ'ing fresh local fish caught only hours before and the amazing diving and snorkeling right at our doorstep. We’ve made some great new discoveries at the local restaurants and some wonderful new friends on the island as well. A favorite place to go is the Mamba restaurant just north of the house on the beach and also the Rojo.

14 days later all I can say for sure is that this IS heaven.

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is for Explorers. Those who like to wander up a quiet beach, not being bothered by vendors and eat REALLY Well (Matachica!). Divers who love local, safe, conscientious and knowledgeable masters with an awesome crew and very intimate, amazing dives (Sam... RIGHT NEXT DOOR!). It is for those that need quiet but don't want to be too far from town and the fun other humans can bring (Truck Stop is a MUST!). You must dig golf carts (and the belly laughing induced episodes they create) and the stars in the sky (you've never seen so many!).

Debbie & Max have a beautiful space, comfortable beds, a great manager, and a beautiful property with a fresh water pool that is to die for. We loved cocktail time each day with the neighbours and the privacy the perfectly planted palm trees gave us both before and after.

We've remembered what this living thing is supposed to feel like and we simply can not wait to go back. Thank you!!

This property was as advertised and even better.

  • 5 of 5

David the caretaker took care of anything that we needed, any tours, places to go etc. The maid did our wash and kept the place very clean. The grounds we're beautiful, just cannot say enough nice things about the place, Janice from the rental agency came by several times to check on us. It was truly a great vacation and we are making plans on a return trip.

This property is drop dead gorgeous. The ocean is so close, we had coffee on the deck every morning

  • 5 of 5

We had two couples and the two master suites were especially nice because no one had the bunkbeds. The house is large, open and beautifully decorated. The property management is exceptional and David our caretaker was invaluable. Highly recommend this as a tropical getaway. Golf cart is a must as you’ll want to explore. The snorkeling is unparalleled. We used White Sands Scuba And they picked us at our boat dock and led a really good guided tour. The food here is varied and the fish 🐠? is the bomb. Just finished off the last of my coconut cream pie from the Hungry Grouper in town. Go there. Close by the Villa is Rojo’s. The drinks and the tuna poke are perfect for more ocean gazing and poolside fun. Only downside is the seagrass that populates the oceanfront. Steal away to Secret Beach which has the best water and sand and enjoy the day there with four bars, food and music. Much of the roads are filled with potholes so hold on, go slow And set your watch to island time. We will be back.

A day time robbery took place in the unit

  • 2 of 5

BEWARE we had a HOME INVASION while renting this unit. While we went to lunch, one of our guests stayed in the downstairs bedroom. A person entered the second floor living area and stole over $1200 US dollars of items. The second floor door was unlocked and windows were open.

We used the safe vaults for our expensive items and was told that the place was safe during the day to leave the doors open for a nice breeze .

Thankfully no one was assaulted.

When we discovered the missing items, our party did not feel comfortable at anytime thereafter .

So if you rent this unit, don’t go anywhere ((including the pool) without a complete lockdown of the unit.

While I’m sure the owner will say that this has never happened before, as a retired judge from Chicago, it will happen again. We made it too easy to steal . They will be back.

Janice from the management stopped by to help us file a police report so we could file a claim with OUR homeowners insurance policy. The owner stated she couldn’t help us unless we reported to the police. Since it was our last day, I spent the entire day with the police. Since then not a word from the owner.

I rented the entire house for a week and a couple decided to join us for three days. I informed the owner weeks before we arrived and she said nothing but on the last day she tried to charge an additional $382 dollars for the extra guests.

Outside of that, we had a nice trip and property is well maintained.

Owner's Response: It is important to note that the items were actually found still in the home under the sofa cushions and our management company has mailed them back. While Ambergris Caye is a safe island, we have taken pains to ensure that guests of Caye Villas feel safe and have added peace of mind while on the property. To that end, we advise guests to only bring people who we know and have recommended, into the home. We have electronic laptop size safes that should be used for all valuables. We have on site security and we recommend letting they, or our caretaker, know when you are planning to be out of the house. We have well-lit grounds and motion detector security lighting. We also advise that the house should be locked whenever you are not there just as you would at home. These points are all outlined in our contract and during our home orientation on arrival. We are deeply disappointed that the resolutions we offered you did not meet your expectations. Our attempts to assist you with contacting local authorities, filing a report, and determining what resolution you were looking for were all rejected. As you left on your last day at 10 am we were unfortunately not able to assist you further. Rates for additional guests are clearly outlined on our website and in our contract. We were surprised to learn you felt this unfair given you agreed it was a last-minute decision to have your friends join you and payment was due. We are sorry that your trip to Ambergris Caye was not what you had hoped it would be. We are reviewing all of the safety and security policies we have in place to ensure that our many guests continue to enjoy a safe worry-free vacation while staying with us. We wish you safe travels in future. Sincerely Max & Debi

Wonderful week in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Such a great spot for an Ambergris Caye vacation. We came to dive the Blue Hole, but left realizing that Ambergris Caye is so much more than that. Gorgeous spot - just far enough out of San Pedro to be quiet and relaxed, but close enough to get in quickly and easily by golf cart. Also a perfect jumping off spot for points to the North (like El Norte and Tranquility Bay). Very nice villa with excellent support from David - who is a great person to ask for just about anything. We hope to return soon!
