Property description

This home is perfect for the casual or hardcore fly fisherman, with multiple bonefish flats easily accessible on foot and local guides available to pick you up at the dock for a memorable day spent chasing the great numbers of bonefish, permit and tarpon available in our area. This great location also offers quick and easy access to the best snorkeling, with Hol Chan Reef and Shark Ray Alley, just offshore. Enjoy the ocean at your doorstep with our 2 kayaks, our canoe or our stand up paddleboard, or explore the nearby Mayan Ruins and the remote south end of the island with our bicycles.

The spacious second floor features a large wrap around deck with hardwood bar overlooking the ocean, huge central living/dining area with open hardwood ceilings, tile floors and large screen windows facing the ocean and French doors opening out to a spectacular view of the reef. There is a modern, fully equipped kitchen and BBQ grill for preparing your delicious meals featuring the amazing variety of local seafood, fruits and vegetables available at the local outdoor markets.
The 2 large Master bedrooms upstairs feature tile floors, hardwood cathedral ceilings, walk in closets, individually controlled air conditioners and well appointed bathrooms with large tile showers. They each have a large canopy queen bed.

The first floor features 3 bedrooms with a private tile bath and shower and an air conditioned studio apartment with a small kitchenette, a bathroom with shower and a queen bed. There is also a large deck with an outdoor dining area, grill and lounge chairs for relaxing. Each of the 3 downstairs suites feature beautiful stone tile floors, Individually controlled air conditioners, en suite bathrooms with custom tile showers and solid mahogany custom furniture made by Belizean craftsman. They each have sliding or french glass doors opening out to a spacious deck with outdoor dining tables, chairs, sun lounges and a great view of the ocean.

We work with several of the local tour companies, and can set up outings to fish, snorkel, scuba dive, sail, tour the rain forest, go cave tubing, zip lining and see the Mayan Ruins. These tour operators will pick you up right out front on the dock, and drop you off at the end of your adventure. We can also arrange extras such as golf cart or motor bike rentals (some mode of transport is highly recommended to go back and forth to town).

We have our own 22' flats boat and island born and raised captain that can take you fishing, snorkeling and exploring right from your private dock.

Catered meals are available for some or all of your vacation. Our caretaker and staff will help you in any way possible to make sure you have an experience that you will cherish for the rest of your life.

The main attraction of Ambergris Caye is the spectacular barrier reef located just offshore - the second longest barrier reef in the world. Dive the famous Blue Hole, snorkel in one of the many parks, fish the blue water, the reef or the amazing clear water flats for the many bonefish, permit and tarpon.

Day trips include a relaxing sailboat ride to the reef, boat trips to the Mayan ruins, the Turneffe Atoll or a flats boat guided fishing trip.

Rent a jet ski, learn to kite surf, or spend the afternoon exploring the remote out islands in one of our kayaks or on our stand up paddle board. Or just relax in one of our lounge chairs or hammocks and enjoy the sun.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Jim and Phyllis Johnson have been operating top notch fishing lodges and especially fly fishing destination lodges for the last 30 years in Michigan (Pere Marquette Lodge, Alaska (Naknek River Camp) and now Belize. Our goal is and always has been to offer world class adventures at an affordable price.

Why the Owner Chose San Pedro, Belize:
We live in Alaska all summer, so when winter comes to Alaska (in late September!) we like to escape to a warm place. We used to spend our winters in the Bahamas', but 3 years ago we decided to try something a little more exotic. We went on VRBO and rented this house, came down with the family, and absolutely fell in love with it. We have spent the last few winters renting this house for more and more of the winter, until we finally gave in and purchased it. Now we want to share this amazing place with you.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We have fished all over North and Central America and can honestly report that we ave never fished anywhere that offers a better chance for the novice to catch a bonefish or an experienced fly angler to catch a grand slam (tarpon, bonefish and permit). Many of our guests have achieved this lofty goal during their week. Some have done it on foot, fishing on their own, wading the nearby flats and lagoons. Almost unheard of anywhere else. We have our own custom built 22' flats boat parked at the dock, operated by a licensed professional Ambergris Island born captain that can be added to the rental for some or all of the week for fishing, snorkeling and exploring this amazing Caribbean paradise. Ask us for the details.
