Charming people breathtaking views! Take me back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Waters Edge in Amberegris Caye. This was not our first international Villa Rental so we were aware of some of the challenges that renting sight unseen can create. However, the folks at Sotheby's International, particularly Emma, were terrific to deal with. They were responsive to our questions and helped arrange our activities and transportation from Belize City to Ambergris and our villa.

The ocean front setting was beautiful, and the dock extending out in to the Caribbean at least 100 yards was exceptional. Three of our 4 excursions originated with a pickup by boat right off our dock! The house was very nicely finished, and had everything we could want. The kitchen is all it is advertised to be, well appointed and designed.

Perhaps the best feature of the home was the caretaker and his wife, Edvin and Natalie. They were always around to answer questions, make sure we had all that we needed, and to ensure our vacation ran smoothly. As a life long resident of Ambergris, Edvin was an excellent source of information about restaurants, shopping, wildlife, and history. We were grateful to have Edvin and Natalie on premises during our stay.

During our stay, we had three meals prepared for us in our kitchen,; Edvin and Natalie made us a delicious Belizian Breakfast our first morning, and 4 Sisters Catering and Chef Maria came to prepare meals for us. All 3 meals were authentic, fresh, and left us with food for lunch the next day! Chef Maria prepared the Snapper and Grouper we caught that day on our fishing excursion, making the meal even more of a delight!

During the week, we enjoyed massages on our dock, snorkeling, fishing, and our first introduction to Scuba. All of which were scheduled with the assistance of Emma from Sotheby's. We found everyone we met to be helpful and pleasant deal with.

As there are no cars on the Island, with the help of Sotheby's, we arranged to have a 6 person Golf Cart waiting for us when we arrived at Waters Edge. One piece of advice I would give is that not all golf carts are created equal! With 2 miles of the road into town is not being paved, a more robust cart might have been advantageous.

All in all, we consider ourselves very lucky to have found Waters Edge for our visit to Belize. We give the house, Sotheby's, and Edvin and enthusiastic thumbs up!

We will be back but not in March due to seagrass

  • 4 of 5

This house is wonderful just like the other reviews state, however we were there the end of March and the beach had a lot of sea grass. Fault of Mother Nature! Edvin was out every day trying to remove it but the next day it seemed to have doubled! Our last day it was better and we were able to get the kayaks and paddle boards out and go to the reef to snorkel. The scuba diving in the area was also limited due to the conditions. Edvin was extremely helpful. We had Maria cook a dinner for us which was wonderful. We will be back but not in March.

Amazing and great for any group

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with 4 couples and this house has everything you would want and need. If there is anything you may ask for, Edvin and Natalie will help you find it. They greeted us on the private dock to help with luggage and made us rum punch. The kitchen was amazing to cook in, all of the beds/furniture were comfortable and the house had great AC. They also have a very nice stereo system with blue tooth so we were able to play our music from all of our devices. Edvin helped us with bikes, kayaks, paddle boards and booking a boat. We arrived the last day of lobster season and he even went completely out of his way to find us 11 lobster tails when they easily could've been some of the last few fresh ones on the island. The golf cart ride was about 15 min into town and was bumpy but completely tolerable and fun. Also close walking to a few really good restaurants. This house would be perfect for families with kids too. It's very spacious and comfortable for everyone. Our stay was fantastic and I'm very happy we chose this villa! We travel a lot and have stayed in many villas across the world and this one met all of our expectations!

Worth the trip

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Belize, and our party of 7 came specifically to dive. Edvin and Naty greeted us with big smiles and rum punch after our long day of travel. It was MUCH appreciated! The house is beautiful, spacious and very well maintained.

Edvin does a spectacular job of keeping the property pristine. Every morning the beach is cleaned and raked. Edvin is also quite the handyman. We saw that he was building a "Cornhole" game. When we mentioned it was a family favorite, he hurried to finish it up, and many games were enjoyed when we were done diving. There was also a kayak we got a lot of use out of.

Edvin was also extremely helpful planning excursions other than diving, and made wonderful dinner suggestions for us as well. There are a couple restaurants within walking distance, but it gets a little tricky after dark, because not everyone keeps their beach tidy, and it can be hazardous to walk, but you could easily take your golf carts. We rented 2, and they are a must!

We look forward to returning one day. Thanks Edvin & Naty!

Water's Edge

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property. Loved the pool area, and the long dock was awesome to lay on the loungers and relax. Property was a great place to relax after a morning of scuba diving. Real liked that the dive people picked us up right at the dock and dropped us off. Golf court ride into town not a big deal. Our host Nevid was great.
