After looking at various condos and locations on the island we chose Grand Caribe because it is a beautiful, well maintained property with a great location to San Pedro and is known for it's consistently excellent service.

Grand Caribe is located on the north side of the island which has a more "relaxing", "neighborhood" feel and is the nicest condo development closest to town without being "in town".

Both bedrooms have top of the line beds and linens and have an attached bathroom with large showers. The master bath also has a jacuzzi tub and double sinks.

The condo includes 3 flat screen tv's with cable/satellite, 3 DVD players, 2 IPOD docking stations, lockable safe, hair dryers, flat iron, beach bags, beach towels, books, games, magazines and all you will need in a gourmet kitchen.

The Concierge will help you with your every need from booking a massage to scheduling any excursions you want. Scuba diving, snorkeling, world class fishing, visiting the Mayan ruins, cave tubing and zip-lining are just a few.

You can schedule a golf cart rental if you want to go to town or just catch the boat taxi at the end of the dock or if you prefer, a bike ride.

All you need to do is relax and have a great time!

There are numerous restaurants, and bars you can walk to from the condo. There's even a "yoga" retreat next door where you can take a class or just enjoy a great breakfast or lunch.

You can do as much or as little as you want . . . just enjoy the day!

Our goal is for you to have the same feel here as a 5 star hotel and desire to come back each year.

Ambergris Caye is the largest island off the coast of Belize surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. It's breathtaking scenery, wonderful climate, friendly English speaking people, and close proximity to the second largest barrier reef in the world make Ambergris Caye one of the best vacation spots in the Caribbean.

Ambergris Caye was voted #1 island in the world by Trip Advisor in 2013 and 2014.

About Tom and Karen

We currently live in Kansas (Tom and Karen).

With two stressful jobs, finding the perfect island home was our goal and Belize was the top pick for us. Karen loves to decorate so we have a unique condo providing you with a "relaxing feel" throughout the condo.

We love to share our home and build a memorable holiday for you!

Tom and Karen purchased this condo in 2011

Why Tom and Karen chose San Pedro

After looking at every resort on the Island, we chose Grand Caribe because it was the best built and maintained property. We also think it's the top resort on the island with a unique location being on the north side, but close to San Pedro.

There are plenty of restaurants close to the resort and Grand Caribe boasts two top restaurants with the only rooftop restaurant on the island where you can see the sunrise or sunset.

We've traveled to a wide variety of tropical getaways, but had never fallen in love with a location like Belize.

We love that the main transportation on the island is golf cart and boat taxi (comes by the dock to take you anywhere you want). The island has a "simple" feel with friendly locals. The water is crystal clear and usually calm since the barrier reef holds back any crashing waves.

Wonderful people, great food and easy - English is the main language and all places take USD or Belizean dollar ( 2 BZE to 1 USD).

A very unique place compared to places we've traveled.

It doesn't take long before you want to call this beautiful island your home!

What makes this condo unique

This is one of only 8 "center" 2nd floor units at Grand Caribe. This gives you wider ocean views and a larger patio where you will never feel crowded.

We will provide you with all the information you will need for a memorable time on the island including our favorite excursions, restaurants, out of the way places and the specifics you need from the moment you step off the plane.

We strive to make your planning easier so all you have to do is relax and have a great time!

Beautiful relaxing views and a lovely lovely living space

  • 5 of 5

A week at Grand Caribe was all we needed to wash our cares away. From morning coffee with a full view of palm trees and the ocean to a glass of wine before bed, we enjoyed every minute. Every aspect of the condo was convenient and everything we needed was there -- fluffy towels, beach towels and a fully equipped kitchen! There was plenty of opportunity for adventures which we took advantage of visiting San Pedro, Hol Chan Marine Reserve, and a trip to Tranquility Bay (great restaurant), but if you chose to just read a book on the beach or by the pool you couldn't find a better spot. The poolside bar/restaurant provided not only food and drink but staff who were a pleasure to talk to. How fun was it to sit in the pool and sip your drink! There's a small grocery store and a bunch of restaurants all within walking distance. We loved the Truck Stop! Condo owners, Karen and Tom, are lovely people and couldn't do enough to provide guidance beforeand during our stay.

Lovely View, Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

This property was definitely lovely. The view was probably the best you can get, just about every room had a view of the ocean and resort grounds. It felt like a postcard every time you looked out the window, and you could watch the sun rise from the dock. The rooms were cozy, and the space was perfect. Everything we needed was right there in the rooms. The staff was friendly and helpful. I also really loved the little local lizards who would sun themselves on the walkways. It was really relaxing and very quiet. The market and the restaurants were nice to have within walking distance. Nothing you needed was too far away, even if you didn't have a car, there were taxi vans and golf cart rentals available for those who'd like to expand out to other locations. You're also able to pick up the water taxi right there on the dock out front, this helps a lot! If you're looking for comfort, relaxing days lounging by the water, and a drink by the pool, this is definitely a good place to stay! We had our events planned out already (snorkel with the nurse sharks FOR SURE, it is a MUST!), but any of the other little details or concerns we needed clarified, the staff helped us with, including the best places to eat in the area and some of the more fun local events like trivia nights, the chicken drop, and more.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I've been to Grand Carib on Ambergris Caye twice now and it just keeps getting better. This condo was so relaxing with amazing décor, comfortable bedrooms, full kitchen and the perfect balcony to enjoy the ocean view day or night. The staff at Grand Carib were inviting and attentive - the concierge helped us book a snorkel trip and dinner at Mambos at Matachica during our stay and the pool staff always made sure we had a fresh drinks whether we were sitting at the pool or on the beach. Grand Carib's location is very nice - it's a short walk to several good restaurants, has a dock where the water taxi makes stops every 2 hrs, and is ~1.5miles from the town, San Pedro. Whether you want to be active during your stay or just need some R&R, this is the place to stay! I hope to make it back again and again. Thank you for sharing your condo!

Relaxing with an AMAZING view

  • 5 of 5

Best location for a relaxing getaway. The view from the balcony is amazing, I enjoyed my coffee in the mornings and a glass of wine at night as I sat and listened to the waves. The staff at the condo was extremely personable and attentive when waiting on us at the pool or beach. When we needed to book reservations for a restaurant or an extra activity, the concierge was always available morning or evening.

The condo is beautifully decorated and very well taken care of. The rooms were comfortable and allow for a great nights rest. The kitchen has everything you need if you buy groceries and want to make something there for lunch or dinner.

I would highly recommend this location for a vacation. I can’t wait to book another week!!

Luxury by the beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a quiet beach getaway, look no further. This was my first time in Ambergris Caye and I'm really glad I stayed at this condo! It is the perfect location with a view of the pool and the ocean via the balcony. It is close to amazing snorkeling and scuba diving. You can reserve a kayak at the dock and take it out to snorkel among the reef, straight from Grand Caribe! How amazing is that? I enjoyed the swim-up pool bar, well-decorated and air conditioned condo, and the close proximity to restaurants and the grocery store. I got some of the best night's sleep I've had in a while on the comfortable bed! I really liked washing my clothes at the condo because I didn't have to pack as much. This is must-see place to stay! The hosts are generous and very accommodating. Thank you! I look forward to my next visit.

BEST VACATION EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is beyond belief!! Sit outside on the spacious balcony and look out over the pool and ocean and take in the ocean breeze. The sand on the beach is amazing and doesn't get hot and the water is so blue and clear!! The condo has everything you would need. It is very well taken care of and wonderfully decorated. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms are very large. The resort staff was very attentive and friendly. The pool bar guys are wonderful - especially Brian. They made our week so enjoyable. There is a grocery store nearby if you want to cook your own meals or get snacks. The location is just north of San Pedro in the newer section of the island. We rented a golf cart for the week and could get to everything within 15 minutes. The people on the island are the friendliest you will ever meet. We ate at many restaurants and always had wonderful meals. We booked a snorkeling trip through the resort and they took care of everything for us. Would go back in an instant!!!!!
