Property description

Looking directly over the ocean to the world's second largest coral barrier reef and benefiting from the ocean breezes, our home in paradise, is just ½ mile from the reef opposite the Pescador cut (a route through the reef) and two miles from the local town of San Pedro, so it is quiet, private and secluded but also provides very quick and easy access, by boat, golfcart and bicycle, to the 'bright lights' of town with lots of restaurants, bars, coffee shops and shopping.

The house sits on a large private site, with private access, a private dock and the use of our own private infinity pool and jacuzzi (unheated) as well as wonderful views from our balcony (with hammocks) and patio out to the reef just 1/2 mile away.

There are 4 double bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths, a large kitchen and living room as well as a den with library and TV (cable and internet/wifi is available). All the bedrooms and the den are air-conditioned.

Our caretakers, Martin and Lupe, live on site and are there to help you in any way they can. They both speak good English. Lupe does all the regular cleaning.

We are really pleased to report that two years ago the town council paved the road to town. This allows both a quick and comfortable trip to town (2 miles) by golfcart or bike. We are delighted!!

Also, VRBO has started to institute a service charge of up to 10% that it will charge our future guests who choose to book through VRBO. For over 10 years we have used Caye Management, and on-island, well-respected rental management company, to handle our bookings and deposits and payments. So, we suggest that rather than reserving and paying the VRBO surcharge, let us know of your interest and Caye Management will email to you a deposit and payment form (credit cards welcome). This allows you to save the service fee charged by VRBO and spend it on some fun activity while in Belize. All questions welcome.

PLEASE NOTE THERE ARE MANY, MANY MORE VISITORS' REVIEWS, EXTRACTED ACCURATELY FROM OUR VISITORS BOOK, UNDER OWNER INFO ON THIS SITE. THANK YOU AND HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME! DEBBIE

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are Debbie and Nick and are English so we are a long way from our base for much of our lives. Having spent many years in offices, we love to relax by taking as much time as possible outdoors, either here in Belize, in the mountains of Europe or seeing other parts of the world. We have recently retired and are now looking forward to spending several months a year at our home here in Belize. Up-date! We are spending 4 months in Belize each year - we cant wait to get back to the warm weather and sand between our toes! Thank you all for your 'hits' and for the many bookings while we are away in Europe - goodness VRBO is great! We are sorry that our home will not be available from 1st May to 1st September as we will be there then but it will be available from 1st September each year right through to mid - end April! Best wishes to you all and thanks for your interest!

Why the Owner Chose San Pedro, Belize:
We, perhaps like you in the future, came on holiday to Ambergris Caye, from our base in England, and fell in love with the beautiful location, the island and its people (who’s first language is English). A few months later we returned and viewed a number of pieces of beachfront land. We chose this one because it is beautiful, close enough to town for easy access but far enough to be away from the noise and traffic. We then, over the next 2 years, built our own home on this piece of paradise at the same time as learning to scuba dive, to fish and to improve the flexibility of our 'aging' bodies by taking yoga lessons locally. Why the name? Debbie is my wife (see image above!) and she always wanted a home on a beach - so Debbie's Beach House was born! Please come and stay and form your own opinion for yourselves!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Well where do we start?! Some days we feel like being active so we regularly go out snorkelling, scuba diving, fishing (pick-up from our private dock) and attending yoga lessons nearby. Other days we want to be social so we head into town by island ferry (from the next door dock), by golf cart or on our bicycles to go to one or several of our favourite restaurants, bars, live music shows or even shopping. Very often we just feel like doing absolutely nothing very much, so we swim in our pool, sit in our Jacuzzi looking out over the ever changing view of the sea and the reef or sit reading in one of our hammocks on the balcony with a home made rum punch in hand (recipe is in our visitors book!). The gradual effect of these combinations of activities or in-activity! on this island means, for us, that the rush and stress of our lives in a large city seem to just ‘slip away’ and we relax! Please come and try it!
