About the Property
1 Bedroom, 1 Bath True Oceanfront Condo At Grand Caribe
The kitchen is beautifully finished in hardwood, granite, and stainless steel, and well-equipped with all the necessities of life, from a Cuisinart coffee machine to a blender, rice cooker, and toaster oven. The unit is furnished with comfy, locally-made pieces, including a couch, chairs and a bistro table on the expansive balcony.
The pool area, consisting of three beautiful pools and a large deck with cushy recliners, is just steps away out the back side of the unit's building. Here you can take a swim, meet other guests and owners, or have a yummy snack or meal at Cowboy Doug's poolside lounge. A swim-up bar is conveniently situated so that you can enjoy a refreshing Belikin Beer without ever having to leave the pool.

5-23-16 There is a problem with the "Book It" feature at VRBO being turned on unrequested on some listings. Please be aware that online booking and especially payment through any method other than directly to Grand Caribe Reservations IS NOT ALLOWED by Grand Caribe rules. No money should be sent to me, VRBO, or any of the other online methods under any circumstances. Call me on my cell phone if any questions (775-287-4665).
There has been an episode of a hacker breaking into a Grand Caribe owner's VRBO account, intercepting queries, and offering an unrealistically low rate provided the traveller paid him directly...don't send money to anyone purporting to be a Grand Caribe owner directly, it is forbidden by Grand Caribe rules and is a scam.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Paying with a credit card on VRBO protects your payment for up to $10,000 against listing fraud. We recommend completing your booking on VRBO.Learn more

Grand Caribe Resort is located a short distance (approx. 1.5 miles) north of San Pedro town, close enough to go back and forth easily. Most scheduled excursions will send a boat to pick you up from the dock.
There are so many ways to spend a day here! No question you may wish to begin by sipping a cup of coffee out on the balcony while watching the boats go by and enjoying the sea breeze as you plan your day in paradise.
You might enjoy a snorkeling trip; both full and half-day trips are available and can be booked through the concierge. One very popular excursion goes to Hol Chan Marine Park, near the reef. Turtles, Southern Stingrays and Eagle Rays, and numerous species of tropical fish and coral are the main attractions. Your guide will probably lure out a green Moray eel or two as well. A stop at Shark-Ray Alley provides an opportunity to snorkel with curious and gentle nurse sharks.
If you are a diver, scuba trips are easily arranged, including trips out to the legendary Blue Hole. Equipment can be provided for one- or two-tank dives. Always wanted to give it a try? Why not use the opportunity to take lessons and become certified. Several operators in town offer this option.
Alternatively, a day could be spent on the mainland, either touring Mayan ruins or tubing through a series of caves. Ziplining is also a popular option, as is a trip to the Belize zoo.
Rent a beach cruiser and cycle up and down the beach or into town. There are numerous excellent restaurants for lunch or dinner, and lots of opportunities to part with your money in the shops, or haggling with the friendly street vendors.
Or rent a sailboat or kite surfer and head out for a day on the water.
If you are feeling energetic, our new fitness center is now open and available for your use free of charge. Kayaks may be checked out through the front desk.
Of course, be sure to leave time for relaxing by the pool. You DID come to relax, didn't you? :-)
Year Purchased: 2012
About: Hi! We are Mike and Linda Humphrey from Reno, Nevada, recently retired and ready to enjoy life! We fell in love with Belize on our first visit for a sailing charter, and have been back many times since. Of all the places we stayed, Grand Caribe was our favorite, so that was where we chose to purchase once we decided we would want to return regularly.
Why San Pedro, Belize:
In the course of choosing our Belize home, we stayed on various parts of the island, for at least a week in each one. We found that the area north of the bridge was our preference, for several reasons. It is peaceful and quiet, while town is still a hop, skip, and a jump away. Owing to the curved shape of island, the reef is much closer in this location. Finally, while this is hardly scientific, we found that we got very few bug bites staying at Grand Caribe, contrasted with the mosquito Thanksgiving day feast we provided when staying in the south (your mileage may vary). There are a number of very nice resorts north of the bridge; one huge advantage of Grand Caribe is that it is the first one you come upon, a mere 1.5 miles north. The dirt road varies in quality, but there is no question that it becomes progressively worse the further north you go. So even an extra mile added to each trip into town becomes noticeable. The good news is that the road north of the bridge is now paved to Grand Caribe and a bit beyond. Grand Caribe is extremely well maintained. The grounds are immaculate, and an ongoing maintenance program keeps the buildings in like-new condition. Security is provided 24/7.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Why our unit? I think the best feature is its location within the complex, directly on the water and high enough to provide amazing views. All the units at Grand Caribe have ocean views, but this one is practically in the water. Further, there is no noise from the pool and bar area, except, of course, when you go looking for it. Peace and quiet are yours while in the unit. Sitting on the balcony you'll feel as if you are in your own private ocean-going yacht, only without the ocean motion. Pour yourselves a glass of wine and put your feet up...nirvana!
