Not Quite What We Were Hoping For...

  • 2 of 5

We were expecting a well kept guest house with easy access to San Ignacio based on the listing details. There were a few items not quite as advertised that resulted in a less than stellar stay.

The house is not fully air conditioned, only the bedrooms have window units which left us uncomfortably warm in the kitchen and living room areas. We paid a significant cleaning fee but when we arrived, the house was dirty and needed vacuuming of rugs and floors. There were no coffee filters for the coffee pot so we used paper towels to make coffee.

The house seemed recently converted into a rental property, walls were painted only halfway up wall, light fixtures were burned out, the tub was filthy and we didn't want to put our bare feet in it. There was only a single sheet on each bed with no blankets available in the house. The WIFI did not work when we arrived requiring a visit by property owner and technician. The door to patio was jammed/locked requiring a separate visit by property owner and repairman. The patio overlooks an overflowing dumpster and stray dogs wandered around and barked throughout the night. The hillside view is of power-lines and neighboring fences and houses. The house itself is located in a remote, lower-end neighborhood in Santa Elena.

The only nearby restaurant is a fast food burger place and you must cross the busy Western highway to get to it and the grocery store. The town of San Ignacio is a 29 minute walk (Google says 27 min.), not 10 minutes as advertised. It is not walkable, especially along the highway at night, you must have a car or taxi.

Kera is trying hard to make this a desirable rental but there are many things to be addressed before it's a comfortable rental for the price being asked.

Owner's Response: This home is always well maintained. The home is as seen in the pictures. We have a housekeeper that does a thorough cleaning of the home before any of our guests arrives. The home is always completely cleaned and inspected by the owner before our guest arrives. The internet did go out right before the guest arrived, because of a storm. But the internet was restored within hours of the guest arrival. The home has two air conditions which keeps the one story home very cool and comfortable. In fact the air condition was working so well that our guest called us and requested blankets, which was delivered to them within an hour of their request. (This is a hot climate area. Blankets are not usually needed). We try to make sure that the home is well stock with the amenities that we advertise and more. But anytime there is anything missing we are just a phone call away and will go above and beyond to make sure that our guests have what they need. (As in the case when Kera the owner, took our guest for a personal tour of the area in her vehicle and took them to make reservation for a historic tour guide trip, or picked up supplies from the grocery store for our guest at her expense) The home is located just as described on the website. Everything is located within proximity of the home just as described on the website. The walk to San Ignacio can be from 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the individual. A car or taxi will get you there in 5 minutes, therefore may be more convenient for an older person. The home is surrounded by friendly neighbors with well kept homes. There’s a very nice newly opened fast food restaurant right down and across the street. The restaurant is clean and well maintained. The workers are very friendly and the food is great. There are grocery stores and other businesses nearby and easy to get to. The home, location and amenities are just as described on the website. This is a beautiful, well keep home. The area is a great location and the people are friendly. This is your “Home away from Home” Our goal and mission is to offer our guest a clean, comfortable, safe and convenient place to call home when they come to Belize. I believe that we go above and beyond to make sure that’s accomplished. If we fall short of our guest expectations in any way we are always available to correct or accommodate their needs. We always appreciate all of our guest feedback. That’s what helps us serve you better. Thank you. Kera and John

Perfect Place Great Price

  • 5 of 5

This was only my second time in Belize. The house was a lovely place. I felt very much at home. It's in a great location and very convenient to get to the grocery store, restaurants and all of the fun area that Belize had to offer. Kera is the perfect host, very friendly. She answered all of our questions and was very helpful with directions. I would definitely come back to her beautiful place.

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

I loved the view! Perfect hilltop location, nice and quiet with easy access to the town's nightlife. The place was fully furnished and the beds were beyond comfortable. Definitely staying here again!
