We rent bicycles for $5US per day, we have children's bikes, & child carriers too. We have sea kayaks, and canoes for rent as well. Be adventurous and explore!

Make sure to bring or rent snorkeling gear, an experience of a life time. World class fishing, diving and snorkeling are available through the many guides on the island.

There are local grocery stores on the island as well as incredible Caribbean Restaurants.

The area is surrounded by lush palms and abundant tropical foliage.

Visit the popular 'Split' for a refreshing beverage and a swim in the sandy bay, listen to local music, take a boat ride, or just lie in the sun on a dozy afternoon.

About Debbie

We are a family of four, and live in Colorado. We love to ski the Mountains, but can't wait to be by the ocean.

Debbie purchased this house in 2012

Why Debbie chose Belize District

The island of Caye Caulker is a hidden paradise that we had always hoped to find...and finally did! The love of the ocean, the year round summer temperatures, the unbelievable reef, and friendly people make this place absolutely perfect for our family.

What makes this house unique

Large 35' x 15' swimming pool. Only a few homes on the island have a pool. We also have a new private dock for our guest to use.

We'll definitely be back!



Thanks again for everything,

Stefan, Amy and Claire

Great little gem

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us. I stayed with my wife and two teenage daughters in July 2017. The pool was key - it was so nice to dive into it after coming home from whatever adventure we did that day. Do rent bicycles for the time you are there, that is all we needed except for the taxis for arrival and departure. We just loved riding our bikes into town each day. Right around the corner is Il Baretto, run by Luciana, where you can have a nice drink and a little bruschetta.

Truly a hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

Wow...where to start. This was our first trip to Caye Caulker or Belize in general. It is BEAUTIFUL. The Hidden Gem is located on the "quiet" end of the island near the airport, but we rarely heard any flights coming or going. When we did hear them, we were outside enjoying the sight of the little planes overhead. Michael arranged for a golf cart to pick us up from the water taxi, and someone was there to help us with bikes within minutes of our arrival. Everyone was so friendly and so helpful. We had a small issue with one of the bike locks and Ceci was on top of it. We even ran into the golf cart driver, Gustavo, the day before our departure, and he offered to pick us up to get us to the water taxi bright and early the next day!

The house itself was immaculate and one of the few places with a pool. We shared it with the neighbors a couple of times but it was plenty big for everyone...even with our two sons. They loved their room in the loft, which was perfect for 2 kids. The house is fully equipped to do any cooking you need, and we found several grocery stores on the island. Although, I would encourage everyone to try to local cuisine. You can't go wrong. We loved Fry Jack's, The Crepery, Rainbow Bar & Grill, Dee & D's and Ill Pellicano...all fantastic!

We went back to the mainland for cavetubing and the Altun Ha Mayan ruins which was very interesting. Cavetubing was a family favorite! We would go again in a heartbeat. We also booked a full day sailing/snorkeling tour through Ragamuffin Tours and we were NOT disappointed. They were incredible!

I honestly have zero complaints about The Hidden Gem. I noticed others grumbling about the shower, but it was always warm with good pressure when we were there. As for Caye Caulker itself, it is such a wonderful place. However, if you're looking for luxury you won't find it here. It's mostly small hotels and rentals which is exactly what we wanted. Keep in mind it is HOT, and the only A/C we encountered on the island was in the house and in the one "touristy" souvenir shop. If nothing else, bring sunscreen and bug spray!

It's a vacation my family and I will never forget. Thank you, Debbie, Michael, Ceci, Gustavo and everyone else who helped us. We are truly grateful and cannot wait to return!

Incredible place to stay on the quiet side of the island

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed house with a great pool and all the amenities of home. Great location away from the noisy side of the island. Other than the occasional plane landing it is completely quiet. Well kept and very comfortable.

Name Says it All

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and it was the perfect accommodations for our needs. Clean and comfortable and away from the busy strip. We enjoyed having the pool in our backyard. We rented bikes as our means of transportation. You really don't need anything more than that. The island is about a mile in length and Hidden Gen is at one end and the Split at the other. I enjoyed running each morning back and forth and working out by the beautiful pool. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. The only thing I didn't like was climbing the ladder everyday since I slept in the loft. Overall, I would most definitely stay here again. Just so you all will know Caye Caulker is not a fancy place. There are no resorts here. You are getting the beach bum life experience without having to sacrifice comfort and cleanliness by staying at Hidden Gen. The food on the island is very good and at a good price. Drinks too are at a good price. Visit Koko King Beach, it's a great swimming beach with a bar and grill and good music. Lots to do there. Thanks for letting us stay at Hidden Gem!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Hidden Gem was fantastic. Having the pool was awesome. We spent more time there than the beach. The home was clean and neat (the only nit was rhe fridge smelled heavily of fish and two boxes of baking soda didn't kill it). Michael and the whole crew were friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again.
