About Lolly Slattery
Glenn and Lolly Slattery and Jan Oswald purchased this dream beach home in 2014. After travelling to more than 60 countries worldwide, we came to the conclusion that Belize/Ambergris Caye was the best! A holiday home should make you feel comfortable, welcome, happy and inspired, and Casa Paradiso is spot on. Our active family values being together in a beautiful environment with many exciting experiences waiting, and this is what we found in Ambergris Caye. We never thought that a place could mean so much to us, and feel blessed to be able to share the CP experience with our guests! Our family is excited for our guests, as we feel that we have found the ideal vacation home in an amazing destination. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Why Lolly Slattery chose San Pedro
The Casa Paradiso location is primo! This beachfront home is comfortable, modern and the layout is perfect for families and friends...paradise!
What makes this House unique
Private pool, unique jungle-meets-beach location, vaulted ceiling floor plan, charming beach cafe's nearby, fantastic views from the wraparound deck, safe and prestigious neighborhood, 38 palm trees on the property...!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Overall It was great..... housekeeping could have done better!
Cleaning service was a little disappointing. Floors were clean but lavatory areas and bedding were not. Towels left in dryer and we had to fold and put away. Everything was good upon arrival just our middle of week cleaning was bad!
Our experience was perfect! The property is exactly as shown in every video and our trip went as great as mentioned in all the reviews of this property! Lolly was prompt, knowledgable and so helpful setting up our visit.
The house is clean and up to date. The front porch was great to sit and watch the waves and listen to the surf crash on the reef. The hammocks are fun too. The pool is fun with strategic shade, plenty of flotation devices and ample lounge chairs.
And, as great as the house is, the location is the icing on the cake. It's hard to imagine a better variety of quality restaurants in such close proximity. Marbucks, The Truckstop, Tres Coco's and Akbul are within yards. Stella's, The Dive Bar, Aqua and many more are close as well. The grocery store is a short golf cart ride away and has a decent variety of supplies.
Orlando did a good job staying in touch with us. He greeted us as we arrived to the house. He set up our snorkeling as well as our trip to the ruins, cave tubing and zoo.
Raquel did a nice job cleaning the day she came.
Lolly, Orlando and Raquel are a great team. They represent a real 'give people more than they expect' attitude and I heartily recommend Casa Paradiso!
Scott--what a great review of Casa Paradiso! We loved having your family in the beach house, and are thrilled to hear that you had a perfect holiday on the island. Raquel is the best housekeeper, and Orlando is the top concierge...add the perfect location and pool surrounded by palm trees...Paradise! Thank you again and please come back to the island! Lolly and Team
Unbelizeably beautiful spot
Where do I begin... We stayed for 10 glorious days on Ambergris Caye off the coast of Belize in beautiful Casa Paradiso. We were a party of six with plenty of room to enjoy each other's company as well as have privacy when desired. The house is exceptional with a postcard worthy view of the ocean and the waves crashing on the barrier reef. The house had all the amenities needed including the all important blender for those tropical drinks. It was wonderful to have our own pool to enjoy a late afternoon swim.
The house is ideally located, not too far from the heart of downtown San Pedro but far enough to keep things quite. There are plenty of great places within walking distance of the house for breakfast (Akbol, Tres Cocos and Marbucks) as well as lunch and dinner (Pur, Aqua, Stellas and the Truck Stop). Picture an outdoor Caribbean food court with each vendor operating out of a container, add nightly entertainment and a bar and you have the Truck Stop. What fun!
What made the stay truly exceptional are the owners and their on-site handyman Orlando. Lolly was available before we arrived to help answer questions and guide us in determining the activities we might like to undertake while in Belize. She organized our private water taxi ride to the island from the airport which drops you off at a dock next to the house. Talk about curbside service. She was always available to answer questions while we were on island and included making a reservation for us on good Friday when most of the island shuts down.
Orlando is the bomb! He is more like your personal concierge while on island. In addition to making sure we were stocked with water and being available to answer all questions, Orlando organized day trips for us such as a catamaran sail and snorkeling adventure to a neighboring island, Caye Caulker. He also organized a day trip to the mainland including Mayan ruins, cave tubing and a trip to the Belize Zoo. If you have ever wanted a close encounter with a Jaguar, ask for the jaguar experience and get your forehead licked by Junior Buddy, one of the jaguar rescues residing at the zoo. Orlando took care of everything for us and made our stay truly exceptional.
One additional highlight. Do the Belize food tour. It was an excellent way to taste the local food at many different venues and decide what you liked and where to go back.
Go and enjoy Belize and CP. You will love it!
Gigi it was an absolute pleasure to have all of you as guests at CP! This is a wonderful review, and will offer future guests insight into our island paradise....so happy to hear that you loved your stay--and yes, we agree--Orlando is the best, and Casa Paradiso deserves every 5 star review received! Thank you--your CP team
Great beach house close to San Pedro
We very much enjoyed our stay at this beach house. Since swimming in the ocean isn't feasible because of the sea grass, it was very nice to have a pool to hang out in during the day. The huge shaded front porch was wonderful as well. All the bedrooms had their own bathrooms and A/C units, so everyone was comfortable. Orlando, the caretaker, was very helpful and responsive when we had questions. We would recommend renting a golf cart if you want to spend a lot of time in town, since it gets hot fast when walking. If not, there were several good restaurants within walking distance of the house, and we were picked up from the Tiki Maya dock next door for most of our activities. All in all, our trip was wonderful and relaxing!
Another awesome review, thank you Michelle! So glad that you relaxed and enjoyed your stay on the island and the comfort of Casa Paradiso. It really is the perfect house for families, with each bedroom having en-suite baths, flat screen TVs and AC controls. We look forward to having you return soon! Cheers from the tropics, Lolly and team
Jewel of a house!
Casa Paradiso is a fantastic place to stay. The house, the location, the staff all wonderful. Perfect for our multi-generational family of 6.
Your beautiful family is welcome anytime Eva! We are happy that you had a 5 star experience at Casa Paradiso and thank you for your kind review :) Cheers from your CP team
Our perfect retreat
This was our third time staying at the incredible Casa Paradiso. We LOVE it here! The house is beautiful, the location is perfect and Orlando is the secret prize - he helps with arranging amazing excursions and is always available. We keep coming back here because it just keeps getting better! I would HIGHLY recommend this vacation rental!
Many thanks for your 5 star review Trish! It is our pleasure to host your family year after year...you are practically locals! Happy to know that Orlando took great care of you, and yes, we agree--he is the BEST! Cheers and see you again next year, Lolly and Orlando
The island of Ambergris Caye and the country of Belize offer a wealth of activities for the adventure traveler, or those seeking a relaxing vacation. Our property is the perfect location. It is in secluded paradise, walking distance to several restaurants and public transportation yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle of town. On the island you can snorkel, dive, fish, swim in our private pool, go boating, go on a crocodile tour...eat and experience the local Belizean flavor! On the mainland see amazing Mayan Ruins, adventure through cenotes, underwater caves, or zipline through the jungle!
