About Amiela Ash
In our younger years we did a lot of traveling by air, water, 4 & 18 wheelers and stayed in the hotels, B&B and resorts in Europe, Australia, Fiji, Venezuela, Caribbean islands, Central America and whole United States & Canada, to name the most memorable. Every place we stayed was unique, some more enjoyable than others, and each a total adventure and special part of our travels. We live on Caye Caulker for a few years now. We love our relaxed, peaceful home. We are very easy going and want you to feel at home, so feel free to put your feet up and relax We are very happy to have the opportunity with Homeaway to give other travelers a comfortable and unique place to stay while traveling through beautiful Belize.

We really enjoyed the villa. Relaxing and quiet! Ella, the owner lives next door and shared her pool with us which was perfect for the end of the day! Thanks again it was great!
Rental could use some TLC
We loved our stay in Caye Caulker and while this rental worked out OK for us there were some issues that could be addressed that people should know about before selecting it. First the positives: the owner lives next door and is super friendly and helpful, giving us good information about the island and places to go. There are 4 bicycles to use and since there were 5 of us they got us another one which was great. Ela allowed us the use of her pool at her house next door which was clean and refreshing. There's a funny little washing machine outside that we used which was a nice benefit and we hung our clothes out on the line. The house was clean, had adequate linens and the manager got us some pool towels from a locked cabinet (I'm not sure why they were locked up). The negatives: the photos were obviously taken quite a long time ago and much has changed. The aerial view does not show the large pink house next door and the owner's house behind- all of which are surrounded by tall chain link fences. The waterfront area has become murky, muddy and smells foul and certainly no one would swim there. The house is located in a quiet area away from the village though certainly not too far to bike, but is in an area that looks like a wasteland - some houses and trees have been leveled all around it - I'm not sure what is happening there. The interior of the house is OK, we had the bottom unit. The bedrooms are over sized while the living/dining/kitchen areas are quite small. Be aware that while the AC in the bedrooms is nice and cold, this cold air does not reach out to the living area where an extremely uncomfortable old futon opens up to a bed. The heat makes it virtually impossible to sleep in this room. For this reason, I would not recommend more than 4 people rent this house. The refrigerator in the photos has been replaced by a very small one that does not have a working freezer, hence no ice and hardly any room to store drinks, let alone food. This house is for sale which may explain why the owner isn't motivated to put any money into updates. It seemed expensive to me compared to other choices once I saw what it was really like. Caye Caulker is a beautiful island and we came here knowing it is not an upscale resort area and not expecting perfection. We had a wonderful vacation but it could have been improved with a little more effort on this rental property.
Carol, it is true the location of the property is away from town and is situated in a locally living area on the Caye. This side of the Caye is just starting to develop and this will take a long time for people to get their property cleaned up well, there are bushes and mangroves that a lot of people dump on their property so that it helps to fill the lots. Slo-N-EZ Villa, the property is well maintained, and there is no trash on the property. It is a water front view, it is not beachfront. At this time of the year there are lots of Sargasso, they come to the shore and dry up, this is out off our control, it is everywhere around the Caye. Every time things change up around the area, new buildings going up, I don't think we should included these pictures that does not belong to Slo-N-Ez Villa specifically. I do agree with the Fridge that is not exactly in the pictures, the owners are working on to get one over to the Caye. It is not easy to get stuff on the Caye. The linens in the cabinet in the hallway is locked up - because is only to be used by cleaning personnel. It is up for sale but the owners are still working on their house and we all doing our best to make our guests comfortable. Anything that is brought to our attention while they are here, we respond very quickly. We used to do 5 -6 persons in the house but we already changed that to 4 person only.
Thanks for your feed back, we are sorry the house wasn't as suitable for you you. I hope your visit doesn't discourage you to visit our lovely little Island.
It is always good to read about any places you visit so that way you can have ideas where you visiting.
We loved it!
Very clean and adorably decorated - the owner lives best door and offered use of their pool - very sweet. The fridge could use updating - nearly impossible to make ice - the bikes are starting to get rickety - it's about a mile to town so the bikes helped a lot - seemed like a safe residential neighborhood - overall we adored the property
Comfortable home on the quiet side of the Caye
Comfortable house for a family. It was nice to be in the more residential area of the island. About 1.5 miles from the other tip of the island we got around by bike and walking each day. The house had good outside space and a kitchen we cooked in most nights. Thank you!
Very easy to get to. Beautiful home with lots of space.
The owner, Jerry helped us get settled in. Then the house manager Levita came and walked us thru the house and the rules. It was a beautiful home with very large, comfortable bedrooms and top notch AC units in each room. The kitchen had everything we needed to make meals. The living room and dining area was perfect for the 4 adults in our group. Very sound proof as well, never heard the owners upstairs. The outdoor space was great but be prepared for sand flies and mosquitoes, something you just have to deal with in tropical places. They did provide coils for the bugs that helped a lot. Very grateful for the use of the 4 bicycles for free jn order to get around the island. Overall a perfect experience!
Tranquil and relaxing
I spent a week here at Slo-N-EZ. It is tucked away at the end of a quiet residential street and opens up in the front to an awesome water view, with dock access for water activity. This unit has two bedrooms tactfully decorated and comfortable beds. Our linens were changed mid week which was nice. A full kitchen made it easy to prepare food from a grocery in the neighborhood and several others close by. There are bikes to use or the walk into the village is only one mile and a little, so an easy stroll, with several delicious choices of restaurants and cafes. Ela and Jerry were so great in welcoming me and my daughter to thier place, and with using the washer :) which is a huge plus when visiting Belize! The wifi was excellent. All in all, my experience at this house was just what I needed for a relaxing exploration of Caye Caulker. Thanks you two and Ami also!!!
