The perfect vacation
This house is AMAZING!! Everything about this house was perfect. The location and views are unbeatable. The rooftop deck with a glass of wine and the nighttime stars are sheer relaxing. The pier with morning coffee is the best way to start your day. Wendy was so helpful and very responsive. We did all the snorkels sites, went zip lining, cave tubing, and spear fishing. The kayak was a blast!!! We will definitely stay at Casa Balam if we make it back to Belize.
Casa B’alam is amazing!!!!
Our week at Casa B’alam was wonderful! The house is a Belizian jewel and the outdoor areas are simply breathtaking. We enjoyed lots of family time on the dock! So relaxing!!! The ocean breeze together with the views of the ocean and reef were the best. We also enjoyed the hammock and lounge chairs just steps from the house each morning. The views from the rooftop were amazing but it was simply too hot during our July stay to remain up there for long.
The house itself was lovely but the 3 A/C units could not adequately cool the main areas of the house (bedrooms were fine and stayed cool if closed off). We had to move one of the futons into the bedroom for our daughter to sleep since it was simply too warm and uncomfortable to sleep in that room. No big deal for our family but something to keep in mind for larger groups in July. The only downside of the trip was all the seaweed on the beach (though the wonderful caretaker worked hard to remove it!). Apparently this isn’t always a problem...probably just the time of year but made it impossible to go in the water by the house. So we took several 20-min golf cart rides to Secret Beach on the other side of the island which was beautiful and so much fun! We also used Belize Master Tours for a private day snorkeling trip which was amazing!!! They picked us up right from the dock- so nice!
Wendy was out of town while we were there but arranged another masseuse to come to the house. Decadent! We also made use of the Matagrande grocery delivery before our arrival which was great! Overall we loved Casa B’alam and Belize!!!
A beautiful custom home with all the amenities and stunning views!!
Our family of 3 stayed in this gorgeous home for 10 nights in June/July 2018. We loved everything about the house- amenities,unique design,custom furniture,decorations and the breathtaking views. The private beach area, the unique circular living room and the dock is where we spent most of our time during our stay.The house had continues cooling breezes and the views from every room of the house were stunning. The kitchen was stocked with the necessities- if you wished to cook, but we just ate most of our meals at the amazing restaurants near by- Portofino, Rojo, Mambo at Matachica,Rain and the truck stop. We rented a golf cart for our entire stay and used it to go everywhere on San Pedro-into town,secret beach etc ( golf cart is a necessity and most convenient way to get around). We did a lot of trips and were picked up right from the homes dock. The property manager Wendy was awesome. Wendy handled everything in a timely manner and was very prompt in replying to our emails or calls before and during our stay. Wendy also arranged for a cab to pick us up and drop us off at the airport. We would whole heartedly recommend this home to anyone wanting to visit this beautiful area of Belize... skip the resorts and stay in the privacy of this gorgeous custom home with lots of space,sunshine,views and breezes!!
The property is amazing! We had four people stay and it was so relaxing. We were able to cook a little, go out to eat the the amazing restaurants located close by (Matachica and Aji to name a few!). The pier is great to sit on in the morning with your coffee and watch the waves. Casa B'alam is very updated and nice.
Wonderful property in paradise
Our family of 6 just returned from a week long vacation at Casa B'alam. We had a wonderful time. The property is right on the beach and has wonderful access to the water. The kids enjoyed fishing and snorkeling off the dock. We enjoyed riding the bikes on the beach. If traveling to Ambergris Caye, this is a perfect place to stay with your family.
Perfect spot in paradise
my friends and I ( a group of 5 ladies) just returned from a wonderful 10 days at Casa B'Alam. We had a great time, the house is just like you see in the pictures, lovely island-style decor and plenty of space for all. We had been on Ambergris Caye many times before, and this place is a favorite for sure! We opted to get the weekly boat pass from Coastal Express instead of the golf cart, just because we find it more relaxing to go everywhere by boat! I recommend you read the "Welcome Book" that is up on the counter by the phone in the kitchen, the owner has put together a great little manual about all the important things to know, including restaurant, tour company and other recommendations. Look for the guy on a bike with a cooler in the morning, he has great breakfast burritos and sometimes tamales! He stops by around 8:30 or so.
The sunsets from the rooftop were amazing, what a great view! Loved the dock with the comfy padded chairs, and the water is just deep enough for a dip - we brought floaties and had fun just bobbing around in the warm water. It was a bit windy on the days we wanted to use the kayak, so we never did, but it's something on the list for next time!
We took several snorkel trips with Seaduced by Belize, used them for years, they are wonderful.
Don't miss a walk to Rojo Beach Bar ( closed Sun & Mon), we love going for lunch and then hanging out by their cute little pool.
We never did see the caretaker, but we didn't really need him for anything; the manager did come and check on us a couple of times and she always easy to reach with a text.
* Massages by Wendy, She comes right to the house and sets up to provide you incredible, relaxing massages. Indulge yourself where ever you want, under the coconut trees, even on the dock under the palapa..!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.....!!! (501-630-5607)
* Activities from the local tours available for pick up right from the home.
