Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

Back in 2013, we started on the project that eventually became Laura's Lookout and Sandy's Secret. Sandy's Secret, a two bedroom apartment, is located on the first floor of the house; Laura's Lookout occupies the floors above. Sandy's, however, has its own separate entrance from the front of the house; Laura's is accessed by an entrance around the back, done purposely so that each house would retain it's individuality and privacy. In addition, Sandy's was built using sound insulation in reinforced concrete, minimizing any noise from outside or above. We have a 24 hour security guard on site and during the day, our office hours are 8:00am - 5:00pm and Michael our manager lives onsite, so someone is always on hand to help with your needs. The apartment is light and airy, with incredible, impressive views of the beach, dock, sea and the reef beyond. It offers easy access to the Beach Road, which will take you right into the center of town by either a 5-10 minute bike ride, or a 10- 15 minute walk, but the location remains quiet and secluded; a bit of the Caye Caulker of old!!! Completed by Mennonite craftsman, the workmanship is exceptional. Like Laura's above, it includes hand crafted wood floors and furniture that evoke the hardwood forests Belize is known for. The floor plan includes two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with two twin beds that can be made into a King upon request. For convenience, depending on the group, mattresses are available for those who would rather not share a bed. All linens are 400 thread count; the full bathroom is always stocked with thick, plentiful towels and beach towels. Air conditioning is available as needed in all rooms and with individual preference in mind, each unit has a separate remote control. The kitchen is roomy and modern, stocked with whatever appliance you should need. The living area, which commands awesome views of the sea, has a flat screen TV, games, wi-fi and a movie library. A few steps from the front door are all that is needed to bring you to our man made beach, jutting 50 feet into the sea. It converts into a volleyball court, but it also provides an area in which to relax and enjoy the sun. Immediately beyond the beach area is our recently renovated 300 foot dock. With three separate entrances to the water below, there is room to dock your boat (if you have one!!), 6 pods extending outward for more room and a palapa at the end of the dock if you require shade. Covered with chaise lounges, you would be hard pressed to find a better place on Caye Caulker to just sit and relax, or watch the incredible sunsets. If you prefer your water fresh, Sandy's also has a 35 x 15 foot pool, available only to guests, complete with rafts, sunken into a wood deck that respects the palm trees that were there before and many chaises for sunbathing. Bikes are available on site for US$5.00 per bike, per day.

Perfect place to relax by the sea. Up off the ground lessens no-see-um exposure (biting gnats), and the hammocks are a perfect place to nap between swims. Going back in Oct.

Reviewer Comments:

We spent the last few days of our time on Caye Caulker in this rental and loved it. Our three teens were in a non-beach-front unit and it worked perfectly. This unit was actually plenty large enough for five of us. The dock was at our doorstep and we fished first thing in the morning watching the sunrise and catching snapper and grunt. In the afternoon guests congregated at the end of the dock and we made friends and shared island recommendations and again fished and enjoyed cocktails before heading to the split for sunset. The bread man would bicycle by with the most delicious loaves of warm fresh baked cinnamon and coconut bread every afternoon for $2BZE ($1 US). The cottage provided bikes for rent and kayaks. There is a volleyball court and ample comfoortable seating around the pool and in several spots along the long dock. It was nice to have both sunny and shaded areas at the dock and the pool. Michael was on site to assist with a lock out and help to the airport and both entry gates were guarded at night. Not that we felt the need, but with teenagers, we appreciated that non-guests were not permitted on the property.
