About Richard Treharne
We both work in health care and our initial interest in Belize came from flying over the coast on mission trips to Honduras and mesmerized by the beauty of the coast. We live in Minnesota and feel the need to escape for a week or two to thaw out from our harsh winters. We have traveled to many warm and beautiful destinations, and finally 4 years ago we decided to visit Belize, and haven't wanted to go anywhere else since that first visit. We heard a saying that when you visit Belize, on the 3rd visit you will end up buying a place to live. It wasn't until our seventh visit that we decided to do it , and we have been very excited and happy with our decision.
Richard Treharne purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Richard Treharne chose San Pedro
We have stayed in many different places, and found that Grand Caribe surpassed any other place that we had stayed by a significant margin. It is situated in a great location, the property is extremely well maintained and beautiful. We were impressed with how clean everything is, and the staff is friendly, top notch , and focused on great customer service.

A fantastic spot!
This unit was a great home base for our week spent on the island! I can't wait to go back! The condo is spacious, nicely decorated, well-equipped, and very clean. Grand Caribe is a beautiful resort with attentive, friendly staff. The restaurants on-site are fantastic and there are other great options within walking distance (Aji's, Akbol etc). The concierge service will also help you book any excursions you might be interested in. We snorkeled Hol Chan /Shark Ray alley and Mexico Rocks- both were great! The location of the resort was perfect- I would recommend renting a golf cart to explore downtown San Pedro, the Truck Stop, and Secret Beach. Overall, the condo was fantastic and I would highly recommend!
Absolutely Perfect Vacation!!
Just spent a week at this gorgeous condo, and it was the absolute best vacation!! We traveled with our two teenagers, and were blown away at the beauty of Belize.
The Grand Caribe was perfect in every way!! The staff could not have been more accommodating, from the wonderful welcome to the graciousness of every staff member. The property itself is immaculately maintained. The pools were great, and the food and drinks at the pool bar were fantastic! Our kids rented paddle boards several times from the resort, super cheap @ $10 an hour, as were kayaks.
The condo is easily the nicest, most comfortable, home we've ever rented. It has everything you could possibly need. It was so nice having the option of cooking ourselves. Saved time and money when we wanted to get to other activities. It was also so nice having somewhere to hang out without being on top of each other. My husband and I had a night cap every night on the beautiful veranda, just to unwind. The kids were inside on their electronics or watching TV (the wifi is fast and reliable!).
The owner, Richard, was wonderful to work with. He sent a detailed list of things to do, restaurant recommendations, how to get around, etc. We tried several of his recommendations, including Stella's Smile (killer burgers and the best sangria I've ever had), Akbol (quick and easy to get to, and delicious breakfasts and drinks), and my kids' favorite, the Truckstop (good variety of great food, fun games like corn hole, outdoor movie night on Wednesdays, just a fun, cool place). We rented a golf cart and went in to town often. We ate at Waraguma (to die for burritos), and Estelle's (awesome food, great views). We also had the good fortune of being there during Lobster Fest. :)
We used Amergris Divers a couple of times. Phenomenal diving and great service, accommodating both the divers and snorkelers in the family. They picked us up and dropped us off right at Grand Caribe's dock. They were great, even taking the kids' GoPros to film them at Mexico Rocks.
We took a day trip to Secret Beach. It was beautiful, but it was the only place where the bugs were biting incessantly. We brought bug spray, but they were still super annoying. We had no problems at all at Grand Caribe with mosquitos or anything else. There was always a beautiful breeze!
We can't wait to go back, and we'll definitely stay here again! It was above and beyond anything we anticipated.
Grande Caribe is the place to stay on the Island! You feel so safe and welcome the moment you arrive. They are all about making sure you are taken care of. All guests are treated so well by the staff there the entire time. If you want to plan anything from adventures to going into the city for dinner they know where to go. The resort grounds and pools are very well taken care of and the view of the ocean is breath taking. For a wonderful dinner while seeing the sunset we highly recommend Rain. The condo is beautiful and it was everything we could ask for! The kitchen is up to date and had everything we needed to make our own meals there. The beds ultimately are the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on! The owner of this condo has really put a lot of thought into making this the perfect place to spend your vacation! Definitely rent a cart so you can go check out the city and explore the island! So much to do and see! Can not wait to go back to do the things we were not able to do in a week. When we plan our next trip back we will be returning to this condo - EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS! Can not wait to go back! I hope you plan a trip at this condo - you will not be disappointed!
Everything was high quality from the helpful and friendly staff to the accommodations.
The amenities were endless and very much appreciated by vacationers.
Truly a destination you want to experience again and again!
Only one word describes it all and that is Paradise!
We just returned from a 2 week vacation at this condo. It was wonderful; it was clean, very well stocked with commodities (salt, pepper, spices etc.) it included a free laundry service (very very useful) and friendly, helpful staff. All the appliances and furniture were of high quality and seemed brand new. It was great sitting on the balcony and watching the kids swim in one of the pools just below us. The view of the ocean/beach from the balcony is beautiful. I am missing it all already. Although it rained everyday, it only rains for about 2 minutes and then miraculously clears up soon thereafter. The rain wasn't a problem at all and was quite entertaining the watch a complete downpour and then sunshine so quickly afterwards. I would definitely recommend this condo.
Fun and Relaxation for the whole Family
We recently returned from a family getaway here, and it was wonderful. The location is so serene and has so much to offer. The Condo itself was beautiful and spacious with a large kitchen. We made breakfasts at home most days enjoying a home cooked meal on the patio in the warm morning sun. There are lots of great restaurants in walking distance if that is a preference though. We went out for breakfast as well, but I loved the leisure and convince of breakfast in the condo. Was just a short ride into town to get groceries, and was a fun experience itself.
It rained a couple of afternoons while we were there, and it was nice to have the wifi and satellite TV and just settle in on the couch or take a nice relaxing bath in the whirlpool.
We used the exercise room on various occasions during our trip, just a short walk from the condo. It is a good size and is clean and well equipped.
We also walked up and down the beach and enjoyed the pool and the crystalline azure water from the dock watching the wildlife wonder by. Make sure to bring a flashlight if you venture out at night though. There are very few to no lights around so is can be very difficult to see where you are going otherwise.
If snorkeling or diving is your thing, then Belize is a must! The coral reef is incredibly beautiful with the various types of coral and fish. Amazing! I highly recommend it!
We had a wonderful time on our trip and look forward to coming back again!
