About the property

Penthouse, 2 floors, Reef/Lagoon Views. Sleeps 6, 3Ba, Free WiFi, Xlnt Reviews

Enjoy spectacular reef views and an ocean/beachfront location at this amazing 2000sq.ft. penthouse overlooking the Belizean Barrier Reef. Villa Natalia, located at #8 Tranquility Beach Club, is a third floor penthouse offering one of the best beach, reef, and ocean locations on the island. As one of only nine units at Tranquility Beach Club, privacy, relaxation, and a quiet beach are yours in a very desirable and secure neighborhood only a few minutes south of San Pedro.

Built wth comfort in mind our three bedrooms, master with a king bed, double queen, and second floor queen, each room has its own bathroom. The tiled floor and high vaulted ceilings give the home an airy, spacious feel. The furnishings have been carefully selected from locations around the world, Bali, Indonesia, Mexico and Peru to name a few. Central air-conditioning keeps the entire home cool, or open the windows to enjoy the ocean breeze. To keep our guests comfortable and in a spacious living environment occupancy is limited to a maximum of 6 persons.

Villa Natalia's kitchen is fully-equipped with all appliances you'll need to prepare meals at home when you're not enjoying the numerous island hangouts and restaurants. The dining room seats eight, or step through the French doors and dine al-fresco on the veranda overlooking the Reef and Caribbean Sea.

Our landscaped grounds include a perfect fresh water swimming pool just steps from the beach. Tropical wood chairs and chaises lounges made from sustainable lumber sources are convexity located around the pool and the beach. Our newly rebuilt dock extends 350 feet from the shore, and makes a convenient pick up spot for water taxis, dive boats, and tour charters, or to slip in the water for an easy afternoon swim and snorkel. We redesigned our palapa after the dock was destroyed by Hurricane Earl in 2016 and it has a large open feel with wonderful views and sea breezes right on the water. Its our sunset fave!

Only 2.5 miles South of San Pedro, we provide ground transportation on arrival to and departure from the island as a part of your reservation. Our location gives you easy access into town by golf cart (vendor discount available), taxi, or water taxi. Marin's Mini, our small neighborhood market, is located just up the road. It's great for basic groceries and necessities. 5 steps across the sandy road finds you at The Lone Star Grill & Cantina, and a short walk north takes you to the popular and award winning Black Orchid Restaurant owned by our friends Tom and Judyann.

We take pride in our reputation and service. As owners who know the benefit of being well informed before beginning a vacation we encourage questions! We love to provide answers and information that allow our guests to hit the ground running when they arrive on the island.

Please take advantage of this personalized service and email us about rates**, amenities and any other questions that come to mind. It our pleasure to give you a prompt personal reply.

Warmest Regards,

George & Jody

About George Erdman

Jody and I both traveled extensively during our childhood and teen years and those experiences shaped and defined our love of other countries and cultures. Jody, grew up in Australia then traveled into India and Egypt. Born in Texas, I grew up in a military family and spent years abroad in France, Belgium, Italy, Japan and Asia. Our love of the Caribbean began in the early 70's when traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean, Central America, Mexico, Australia, the Cook Islands Tahiti and Fiji. Even after visiting all of these amazing countries Belize became our family's favorite destination beginning in 1996. We've been returning here ever since. The Belizean people of this wonderfully diverse country captured our hearts. and we decided to make a home for ourselves and our guests in 2011. When not in Belize we live in Healdsburg, California surrounded by the vineyards of the Dry Creek, Alexander, and Russian River Valleys of Sonoma County California.

George Erdman purchased this condo in 2011

Why George Erdman chose Ambergris Caye

It's the perfect home in the perfect location on the perfect island.

What makes this condo unique

Fabulous views, great beach, pool and dock. Proximity to town in a small secure neighborhood with enough local amenities to make going to town an option and not a necessity!

Guestbook comments from the owner

(Reprinted with permission from guest email ) Just wanted to send a thank you for helping us have a great vacation. Your house is great just like the reviews said , great location across from Joes Tex Mex. Mark and his crew cooked supper for us after we brought back our fish from an outing with Suya. We liked it being away from town and having what was an almost private beach. We rented a golf car for the entire time, That is the only way to go we drove all over both north and south of town.



Armando took great care of us and the villa, everything was very clean and conveniant.



We ate at Hidden Treasures, Joes, Robins,Palapa bar and other beach bars, loved them all.



Went with Suya to Ho Chan and swam with the sharks and also used Suya for a very sucessful fishing trip.



Back home now looking out at snow covered yard and missing the wonderful ocean colors of the morning view from the patio of Villa Natalia



If you ever need a reference for someone trying to find a villa on Belize just get in touch with us and we will tell them about our great trip.



Thanks again!

Enjoy the cool ocean breeze and gorgeous views.

Villa Natalia is THE place for a dream vacation! This beautiful 3 bedroom, 3 bath penthouse condo had plenty of space for my family and me to kick back and relax. The home has everything you can think of to make your time here as easy as possible. The décor is amazing, the atmosphere is fun, and the views are spectacular! The kitchen has everything you need to make a great meal and the dining area is very accommodating. Enjoy yourself on the balcony with the cool breeze coming right off the ocean. Afterwards, kick back in comfy hammock and enjoy the sunset. The pool is right downstairs, and mere steps beyond that, your toes will be feeling the sand and the ocean. You can chill in the beach chairs or take the kayaks out for a spin! Time to explore! You don’t have to venture very far for the first stop, an excellent restaurant and bar right across the street! Everything else is a fun bike ride away, or cruise a golf cart all around town (everyone is driving one and George has great suggestions for rentals). Speaking of the great owner, George – he and his team at Villa Natalia do a tremendous job making sure everything you need is taken care of. George gives out plenty of information on all kinds of topics, from eats and treats, transportation, even helpful hints to enjoy the island to the fullest. The staff onsite are beyond helpful and will answer any questions you have. They will even grab you some fresh coconuts from the beach if they are ripe! Overall if you are looking for a vacation full of fun and relaxation, at a home that is cozy, relaxing, gorgeous and extremely accommodating, look no further the Villa Natalia. The definition of perfection!

Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (three adults - my wife's father joined us) and two teens had a wonderful week at this condo. Very nice 3 bedroom condo that worked perfect for us with two master bedrooms and the kid's room with two twin beds and their own bathroom.

Great communication from the owner and the management company. Answered all of my questions (our first time to Belize) and made the trip smooth and easy. Junior picked us up at the airport as we were told - and took us back at the end of our stay. Armando is an amazing caretaker on the property and always willing to help or answer any questions. We found out that it seems everyone on the island knows - and loves - Armando!

My wife and son enjoyed three days of diving - the other three of us enjoyed snorkeling several times.

My favorite spot on the property was the end of the dock to read in the tropical breeze. The breeze was awesome as it helped make us comfortable in the humidity. The pool is very nice and refreshing.

We rented a golf cart for the week - a must as town is a couple of miles away and we went to town at least once each day.

Nice and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay -- condo was very well furnished and kitchen was fully stocked for preparing meals, which we did. The upstairs bedroom was much warmer than the rest of the house so we did not use it -- because of this, it would have been nice to have the larger bed in the other downstairs room. It was so nice to have the kayak to use! The grounds were very well kept and the management was very attentive to any requests we had.

Owner's Response: Hi Christy, Jody and I are very happy that you enjoyed your stay. As with any two story building the heat does rise. However one can adjust vents and direct more air flow to the upstairs room very easily. When in doubt about anything we encourage our guests to call our property manager. Mary and her staff are as familiar with Vila Natalia as we are. The queen bed upstairs is the same make as the two queens in the room downstairs. If we ever decide to drop our occupancy to four persons max we'd probably put a king downstairs. Thanks again for you kind words and again we're so pleased you enjoyed yourselves.

Beautiful condo south of San Pedro

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautifully decorated condo with plenty of room for a family (we are a family of 5). The owner, George, was very responsive to any email I sent him leading up to our trip. I wish I had gotten the chance to meet him when we were there. Armando, the groundskeeper, was very sweet and helpful. Junior, the taxi driver was very helpful as well and punctual picking us up from the airport and then returning us when it was time to go. The air conditioning, wifi, TV and good cellular service were most appreciated after part of the week spent in the jungle! We ordered groceries in advance and they were delivered right before we arrived. We also ordered golf carts (a must here) that were ready and waiting on us. There is a pool with this building and a dock that many tour companies will pick you up directly from for your ocean adventures. Details to consider: it's far enough south of the main part of San Pedro that you will need a golf cart to get into town. You may not mind the distance (about a 15 minute bumpy ride), but keep that in mind. The condo is on the top of a three story building so you will need to climb stairs. Don't order a 5-gallon container of water- the condo comes with two already supplied. However, other supplies (other than small bars of soap) are hit or miss, so be prepared to buy some sundries while you are there. The master bedroom mattress could stand to be replaced. It's a bit too soft and saggy. There are some restaurants nearby (the Black Orchid is great, the Tex-Mex place right across the street not so much), but most restaurants will require a trip into town. Not a full service resort(obviously) but a nice place to stay if you are comfortable organizing all your own activities and not being right in the center of town.

Excellent experience in Belize.

The owner, the management company and the care taker of the property were all excellent to work with. The accommodations were surpurb, clean, and comfortable. By far a pleasant experience. I would recommend anyone to stay here. Thank you again.

Excellent stay

Great spot off the beaten path but close enough to town. We stayed 4 nights and it couldn't have been any better. The caretaker Armando went above and beyond.

Amazing spot

  • 4 of 5

This condo has everything it advertises and more. Beautiful spot, well equipped and homey furnishings. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond owners control, we had to move to another property. The owner and property management team went over and beyond to help us and accommodate us. I would rent this place again without hesitation!

Owner's Response: Shelly, you are too kind! Yes, having the local water utility suddenly drop the island water pressure unannounced hurt us both! You for having to relocate and me because we were looking forward to having you as guests after all the emails we exchanged. The good news is we resolved the issue of water supply to our penthouse by installing a booster pump on our water system. That will ensure we can provide water and handle any pressure fluctuations they can throw at us! We hope you enjoyed your stay on the island but please come back and visit us!
