About the Property
You will know you are on vacation in our tastefully decorated Caribbean condo
Our second floor, 2 bedroom, 2 bath centrally air conditioned unit is 1500sq.ft. of bright, tropical, tastefully done decor, that reminds you that you are on vacation in the Caribbean. All furnishings are Belizean made including a custom built TV/entertainment center that features hand carved palm trees.I have stocked it with more than 30 classic as well as current DVD's and many novels for our guests enjoyment while staying in our condo. I often get comments from guests about how comfortable our mattresses are and I agree! I always get a good night's sleep when I am here! We have a room safe for our guest's to use, as well as beach bags and beach towels.
Our condo is furnished with beautiful paintings & wall decor from local artists, including a large underwater reef scene in the dining area, and a scene from San Pedro's Front Street in the kitchen. (The town of San Pedro has three main streets; Front, Middle, and Back Street).
Our unit has room darkening curtains for your privacy or if you just want to sleep in in the morning. We do get early morning sun but by mid day the balcony is nicely shaded for your relaxation. When one guest (two years ago) suggested that it would be nice to have a full length mirror, I ordered one which now hangs very nicely in the master bedroom.
Transportation on the island is mainly by golf cart which you can either rent from the Grand Caribe resort or from one of the Golf rental companies in town. Bikes are also available for rent off site or you can catch a water taxi to town just off of our pier. A complimentary taxi to and from San Pedro airstrip to our condo upon arrival and departure is included.
Here are some of the more recent comments in our guest book:
June 4, 2016:"Thanks so much for sharing your condo with us. Our family so enjoyed our stay!!!Your view is absolutely beautiful. We will never forget our experience!!! Our 15 & 16 year old boys had a super time!!! We want to come back and plan on getting your condo again!"
April 23, 2016: "We had the most amazing time in San Pedro! ......This condo met all of our expectations and more! We absolutely loved everything and can't wait to come back!"
March 28, 2016: " You have a beautiful, relaxing, and well-appointed place and we have loved our time here. Staff are extremely helpful and friendly, and you have created a very welcoming home away from home......"
February 29, 2016: " Enjoyed our stay, even if only for an extended weekend! Beautiful, Clean accommodations. Friendly & helpful staff...."
These are just a few of the amazing comments. We work hard to make sure our place is kept up and stocked with everything you would need. I come out three times a year and take careful note as to anything that is needed or needing to be replaced. Coffee is a hot commodity here and while I can't promise to always have gourmet coffee from the states, I do bring a bag or two each I come to make sure the coffee canister is full when I leave. Marbuck's is just down the road a bit and has terrific coffee. You can even get some fitness steps in while you are getting it! :)
The island of Ambergris Caye was named the 2013 & 2014 Traveler's #1 Best Island in the World on another traveler site. The Grand Caribe has won several awards including the 2015 Travelers Choice Award, #1 of the top 25 hotels in Belize, and #2 of the top 25 hotels in Central America! Safety is never a concern at the Grand Caribe since we provide 24 hour security at all times. The island itself is about 25 miles long and a mile wide at the widest part and sits among the beautiful turquoise water of the Caribbean Sea. It's easy to see why this quaint, friendly, English speaking island is so popular with so many travelers! Sitting out on our veranda, cooling off in the pool, or lounging on the Grand Caribe's pier truly gives us what we call a 'million dollar view'!

Our condo is located 2 miles north of the San Pedro airstrip on Ambergris Caye in Belize. You can look out from the veranda and see the Caribbean Sea and the world's second largest barrier reef which is where the water breaks on the horizon. You can rent a golf cart (available to rent from our front desk),take a taxi, a water taxi, or walk along the beach and check out the many restaurants and shops along the way to town. You are able to kayak out to the reef and snorkel. If you would like to dive, there are many dive shops where you can earn your certification or if already certified, book a dive or two. The staff in the reception area is able to book excursions to go deep sea fishing, diving in the Blue Hole, visit the Mayan ruins on the mainland, a zip lining/ rafting trip, or extreme ATVing among other s. One of the 3 pools at the Grand Caribe is the largest pool in Belize which in itself is very enjoyable to float on a raft, or just hang out in, cool drink in hand to take in all the beauty surrounding you. The pool also has a swim up bar where you can get a drink or have lunch or a snack. When you walk into our condo, you will feel like you are walking into a model home. The housekeepers keep it the whole place impeccable and we visit often enough that we are able to make sure painting the walls, as well as furnishings are updated as needed. We have tried to make sure our special vacation spot has everything you would want while staying with us. Should there be anything missing or any problem, the front desk is always a phone call away and they are very responsive. At the Grand Caribe, you always feel safe and secure with security on duty 24 hours a day. Reading through the reviews on several other sites will confirm that this resort is the best place to stay on the island! All you need to do is google Grand Caribe Belize reviews to read them. The Grand Caribe is #1 of 25 top hotels & resorts in Belize; #2 of top 25 Central American Hotels; and #4 of top 25 family friendly hotels in Central America! To us, it is the most beautiful place in the world!
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We live in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois where we raised our seven children. We hope to eventually retire here part time.
Why the Owner Chose San Pedro, Belize:
We bought this property in March 2014, and we were very impressed with how CLEAN, well maintained, up to date, and beautiful it was. We had vacationed in Playa del Carmen in Mexico for the previous 12 years and loved the climate, the white sand and the turquoise water. Ambergris Caye is just about 300 miles south of Playa del Carmen and we found the same things we loved in Playa del Carmen when we discovered Ambergris Caye with the added bonus that is that the language of the island is English. Also the exchange rate is more favorable (One U.S. dollar equals two Belize dollars) and U.S. currency is readily accepted in Belize. The main thing is that the view is absolutely breath taking! We especially love our condo at the Grand Caribe because it has all the comforts of home, but with just a two mile trip via a water taxi or golf cart ride we are able to experience the less developed town of San Pedro with their great restaurants and unique culture. When we return to our condo we have that unbelievable view that we have grown to love. When people walk into our condo, they are blown away, saying that the pictures on our VRBO site don't even capture the beauty of it all. In 2014 the Grand Caribe completed a new building which is only a two minute (at most) walk from our condo. That building houses the restaurant and bar "Rain" on the third floor as well as rooftop dining and bar on the fourth floor. The second floor is home to the conference center as well as the fitness center. The Bread Basket, our new grocery store is now opened on the first floor!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
All the comforts of home with a million dollar view of the Caribbean. When you walk in you will immediately be aware of the cleanliness, the central air conditioning, the wonderful architectural details such as tray ceilings and arched doors made from Belzian hardwoods, upscale cabinetry, tile work and granite counter tops. It is a comfortable 1500 square foot 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit that has just about everything you would need during your stay. in the kitchen you have all of the appliances, dishes, pots, pans, and cooking utensils you would could possibly need to do any cooking you may want to do, a substantial video library, satellite TV, wifi, a good selection of books, and a few games. We are able to make it into a one bedroom simply by locking off the second bedroom/bathroom and giving you the one bedroom/one bath price. We have also altered the twin beds in the second bedroom so they can be combined to make a king sized bed with a memory foam mattress topper. So now, if your prefer to have 2 king beds instead of a king and two twin beds, we can make that happen.
