Will never go anywhere else!!!

  • 5 of 5

First off, Sotheby's was amazing. They were very attentive and answered all of my questions (there were a lot) in detail and in a timely manner. They booked our flights from Belize City to San Pedro and our transportation (we took the cab option) to Waters Edge. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the caretaker, Jeffrey, with rum punch! We all fell in love with him immediately. There were six adults and one toddler and we were all very comfortable and had lots of space. I will admit that I'm a tad bit (ok very) high maintenance when it comes to lodging and Waters Edge exceeded my expectations! It was immaculate and the pictures do no justice. The kitchen is huge and we loved cooking on the oversized stove and eating at the bar. We had the ladies from Chef for Hire cook two dinners for us and they were EXCELLENT! We all slept like babies (including the baby) and could tell the matresses and bedding were of high quality. We spent most of our time on the patio and in the pool. There are many activities to do on site, including kayaking, paddle board, snorkeling, etc. the boys went fishing and had a great time, but other than that, we stayed on the property. We would go into town for groceries and such (a 15 min golf cart ride) which was a lot of fun. Words cannot describe the beauty and location of this home. We were and still are, blown away.

Now onto the best part, Jeffrey and his family. Jeffrey took care of our EVERY need and I feel we were pretty needy! Any request was addressed immediately. Our friends wanted to paddle board at sunrise and Jeffrey had them out and by the beach before they even came out. He rakes the beach everyday, gave us a tour of the city (and advised the best places for our every need) cooked us the absolute BEST meal and I could go on and on. Joanne, his wife, took care of everything we needed inside the house. She even hung up sheets over the windows in my toddler's room so he would nap longer (he's used to black out curtains). She did our laundry and when she cleaned, it was like we just walked in all over again. But more importantly, they became our friends and we will be back as soon as we can just to see them and of course stay at Waters Edge. We have been all over the Caribbean and we have never had an experience as wonderful as this one. Thank you to Sotheby's and Jeffrey and his precious family for such a memorable trip. We will see you sooner than you think!

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

Water's Edge is a great property with lots of things to do on site. We had 2 families (4 adults + 4 teens). We spent a bunch of time in the fantastic pool and also on the balcony relaxing and staring at the beautiful view. The dock and palapa are also awesome and it is great that the house has paddle boards and kayaks for guests to use. We took them out several times.

The inside of the house is also great and well appointed. The kitchen is very large and comes equipped with pretty much everything you will need. They even supply a large water bottle for fresh drinking water. The beds are comfy and are probably pretty new. The house also has a washer and dryer on site, which is great.

The house has a a few blemishes here and there.....nothing that got in the way of our enjoyment. A loose faucet, a sticking door, worn tile grout, etc....minor stuff that will probably be addressed next month when they do the annual review/check list.

The house caretaker is Jeffery, he and his family live on property. Wonderful people, and Jeffery was simply awesome and helpful. He took us on a golf cart tour of the island when we arrived, and checked in with us each day to make sure all was good. He was also a great resource for recommendations and tips for around the island.

We did snorkel trips, dive trips and fishing trips through Chuck & Robbies. We highly recommend this company for anything on/under the water. Let Robbie know what you want to do, and he'll take care of you.

We booked a mainland trip one day with Caribbean Adventures. Jeffery helped set this up. The trip was great, we explored a Mayan ruin (Xunantunich), cave tubing and zip lining. It was a great day, but a little rushed since did 3 activities and traveled to/from the mainland via water taxi. If we did the trip again, we'd probably go by air to save a couple travel hours so we were not so rushed from site to site.

We did most of our dinners in town....several great places to choose from. Our first night we walked up the beach to Rojo's. Nice place, great food, very convenient. However, pretty far the most we spent on a meal while in Belize.

We also visited "secret" beach one day. We did not spend much time there as it was pretty underwhelming. I'm sure if you explore up and down the beach, there might be something interesting.

Overall, a great time and if we make it back to Belize, we'll stay again at Water's Edge.

Everything you see and more

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our week-long stay at Water's Edge and can't speak higher of the property and the staff who helped bring our vacation together. The property is even more gorgeous in person and is so meticulously maintained by the wonderful caretaker, Jeffery. Jeffery gave us plenty of space but was always there to help us with kayak/snorkel equipment or answer any questions about tours or dining. He even greeted us on our first day with rum punch and ceviche, which was probably my favorite meal of the entire trip!

The house is in a great location just outside San Pedro which offers such a wonderful isolated feeling but still close enough to golf cart into town for shopping and tours. We were able to walk to John's Escape and Rojo, and several other great dining spots were a quick drive away. We had friends who happened to be visiting at the same time who caught some snapper on a fishing tour. We had them over for an evening and utilized the AMAZING kitchen. It has everything you could possibly need. And if you don't get enough snorkeling in at Hol Chan reserve, there are some great coral and artificial reefs you can kayak/paddleboard to just out front of the house that are totally worth checking out.

The staff at Sotheby's, Brittany, Kelin, and Simonet, were super quick to respond to any questions before our trip and helped line up flights to the island, golf carts and a couple tours. We ended up canceling our tours to join our friends, and Simonet did a wonderful job at relaying the information to the guides and helping keep things straight. We also had one family member's flight get delayed, and the Soethby team and cab driver, Jorge, were so attentive to help us arrange his transportation to the house.

Overall, amazing trip! Can't imagine it being any better!

Best Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from Ambergris Caye and we are already starting to plan to go back! Water's Edge is an amazing house! We had 6 Adults and 2 Children. The house met and exceeded our expectations by far. Jeffery, the caretaker, and his family were such an added bonus. They helped us with whatever we needed from getting fresh fish caught that morning for dinner, to setting up the most amazing day on a 53' sailboat that took us to 4 snorkeling spots. They kept the property in pristine condition at all times. The pool is so fantastic to cool off!! We rented a golf cart which they set up for us and was out the house when we arrived by water taxi (also set up for us). My husband fished off the dock while I would go for a run down the beach. The reef is so close to the house, we took the kayaks out and it only took 20 mins. There is a small market that is only 2 min golf cart ride and Rojo's Lounge is only 4 houses down the beach. Which has incredible food!!! Secret Beach is about a 20min golf cart ride from the house. Highly recommend checking it out as well, absolutely beautiful! I would highly recommend this house!!!

World Class EPIC Location

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Belize three times so far, and our experience at Water's Edge and with the entire Sotheby's team was amazing. We had a total of 20 people with us, and 10 filled the house. We were greeted at the airport and boarded a water taxi to arrive at the house - what a spectacular location. The photos do not do the place justice. The service, care, and warmth of Jeffery, the on-site caretaker was nothing short of amazing. From preparing coconuts for a drink, to setting up the kayaks, and overall "taking care of us" he was a definite asset to this home. Jeffery was also able to set up local tours and a boat to Caye Caulker for us. The pool was a wonderful thing to have and everything is top notch. I HIGHLY recommend Water's Edge as a destination - we will be back here for sure!

Absolutely Amazing! Property and Caretaker

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Water's Edge and I want to go back!! We traveled with a party of 10 ( 3 families). We had older teens and college students, as well as, 5 adults. The property is fantastic - the pictures do not do it justice. It is clean, well maintained, the beds are very comfortable, all the amenities were in good working condition and clean. The common area and kitchen were large enough for our whole group for games, cards, and cooking. We spent most days outside in the pool and at the dock areas. Jeffrey - the caretaker - was the absolute best!!! He made sure we always had everything we needed and kept everything in tip top shape. He is a big asset to the property. The location was great - far enough from town, yet close enough to grab groceries, go on excursions, and grab a bite to eat. Working with Brittany McCann and the Sotheby's Property Management team was a pleasure and they arranged and took care of everything ( even when I lost my passport!!!) If you want to stay in Belize this is the property to rent! We plan on going back next year - but only if Water's Edge is available!
