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.

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!

Wonderful property, location and people

  • 5 of 5

House was well equipped and great views. Everyone on site was helpful and happy. Must rent a golf cart as it’s part of the overall experience. Food was great and the locals were amazing. I would defiantly come back. If you want laid back peace and quiet this is the place to stay and you can go into town and find as much fun as you want.

Great home and location. We loved that we were away from San Pedro and it was quiet and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Ambergis Caye and it was a wonderful experience. This home had everything we needed and was very clean and well maintained. It has good proximity to town. The caretaker David and his family are wonderful and will help you with whatever you needed. Janice from the management company also was great to work with. She set up our golf cart rental as well as our rides to and from the airport. Plan on renting a golf cart because you will be about a 20 minute golf cart ride from town. Loved this place and will definitely be back.

Beautiful and Private

  • 4 of 5

If what you seek is quiet, private isolation amidst tranquil beauty then Coral Caye Villa is an outstanding and recommended choice.

Pros: Villa property is gorgeous and well maintained. Pool is great! Property manager is helpful and David the caretaker is delightful and responsive! Comes with security guard who patrols dawn to dusk. Bedrooms and baths were as pictured and the beds very comfy. Gorgeous blue water and awesome white sand! Because this is a residence, its private beach is not the typical long, wide sandy stretches you get further north at the island resorts. Still it is beautiful and quite adequate for small groups. Food is fresh. People lovely. Convenience store within walking distance. Perfect for small groups or a couple’s getaway.

Cons: Definitely take some DEET... you will need it. Belize (though beautiful) is definitely third world in terms of its infrastructure, so keep your expectations low. Sea grasses littering the beach mentioned in other reviews continue to be a challenge for all. The north end of the island where you will be is more isolated, so it's a bit pricey to get to the restaurants, shopping and nightlife at the south end... $64 round trip for 4 people on a water taxi, and we were quoted $75 over the phone for a traditional vehicular taxi. LV & KT are much more dated than they appear in photos and need attention, including appliances. Needs an objective reevaluation from a $350/night guest perspective.... what’s missing or outdated, what should be thrown out/replaced, what’s stained or chipped, what works, what doesn’t, etc. Also things like the smoke alarm going off due to the heat from the oven and the roof leaking a bit in the living area due to the seemingly endless rain. We were also given no cautions or information from owners about it being the rainy season (July through November) so totally unprepared for the flooding we experienced. Rains/flooding were bad enough for us to err to the side of caution and cut our trip short. So buy the trip insurance if going during that time of year. Better to have it and not need it than the reverse, as owners are uncompromising on their no refund of unused days policy.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that Belize and San Pedro did not meet your expectations. The natural landscape and beaches, locally owned and operated restaurants and shops, laid back attitudes and warm friendly openness of the people of the island are just a few of the many things we love about our little piece of unspoiled paradise. Travel insurance is always good to consider, regardless of where you travel, especially given the changing weather patterns around the world these days. Once the small leak and smoke detector were brought to our attention we immediately had our caretaker and our management company look after the leak and verify that the smoke detector was working properly. We thank you for the feedback and we wish you safe and enjoyable travels in future. Sincerely Max & Debi Coral Caye Villa
