About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Full Kitchen (Sleeps 2)

We are an 'Eco-Friendly", solar-powered, waterfront home-apartment overlooking the Caribbean Sea with a beautiful dock and swimming ladder. It is located down a scenic, sandy, jungle path. This is an authentic, Caribbean style "home," that is not located within a shared Townhouse/Condominium-type complex. It is away from it all in the exclusive South Point residential neighborhood. This is an actual "home" that we happily offer as a true Vacation Rental By Owner for others to enjoy.

This gated and fenced in property is located on the island's only scenic, seaside jungle road far enough away from the airstrip yet close enough to the village shopping, grocery stores & restaurants for all your needs. The location is far enough away from the lively village for plenty of peace and quiet throughout the days and nights to relax.


Enjoy everything Belize has to offer right from the Seaside Suite. All your adventures to the mainland are just a short water taxi ride away. Or, choose from our many locally guided tours that will also bring you to the mainland to explore by Sea or Shore. They are absolutely fantastic and will pick you up by boat and drop you off right at our private dock for your convenience. Live like a local and enjoy everything Caye Caulker has to offer. The Seaside Suite offers all the adventures that you could ever want. It is ideal for those seeking a complete Belizean experience with all of your options available for adventure, exploration and relaxation alike, all from the convenience of your own tropical island home away from home.

Located at the South Point of Caye Caulker and away from it all, this property offers a peaceful tropical island getaway. The seaside path to Casita Bella Vida is very scenic and fun for bikes, golf cart rentals and golf cart taxi rides. The Suite is approx. 1 mile to the Village. Golf-cart taxis will pick you up and return you back home if you prefer to be driven. Or, you can rent a golf cart if you'd like. Two (2) bikes are included with your stay and are available on the property for you to enjoy.

Here in Central America there are bugs, geckos, iguanas etc. Please be prepared for the bugs, and the sun. Nothing ruins a vacation like bug bites and sunburn. We are "off grid" and therefore we do not have A/C, but we do have fans and Sea breezes that makes your apartment quite comfortable. Guests are supplied with a 5 gallon water bottle for drinking.

Our property manager will arrange for a golf cart taxi ($fee not included) to meet you and transport you to the house where he will greet you and check you in.

About James

We are a happily married couple enjoying our 50's.

We love to travel, and enjoy many sports from the snowy mountains to the sandy seashores.

James purchased this apartment in 2013

Why James chose Belize District

It has always been a dream for my wife and I to own a home in the Caribbean. We were fortunate enough to have our dream come true. With such a truly beautiful home we felt it would be nice to make it available and share it with others.

What makes this apartment unique

It is a truly peaceful and quiet location with the most scenic road leading up to the Seaside suite. We are away from the busy Village yet close enough for all your entertainment, shopping and restaurant needs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay here at the Seaside Suite and on Caye Caulker. Had a fantastic snorkeling experience with Richard's Adventures - highly recommend him - a super fun & knowledgeable guy with a real reverence for the reef. We also loved biking into the Village from the Suite and taking advantage of the kayak & SUP's.

Thanks again James & Rainy!

Paradise view

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at this location. We spent one evening on the dock and the night sky with all of the stars and moon was breathtaking. We spent a lot of time on the dock and hooked up to a tarpon, caught a small shark, and swam in turquoise beautiful water. Liberty and Greg are so super kind, and I am very happy to have met them. The bed is comfortable and the property is exactly as described. I love Belize and the Belizan people are very welcoming.

A Caribbean Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Even before we arrived in Caye Caulker, James was johnny-on-the-spot in communicating with us all the details we needed to have in place to make our arrival just as perfect as it could be.

From having Domingo meet us at the Belize City International Airport, to having Peter pick us up at water's edge from our water taxi, to awaiting us at the house when we arrived, he couldn't have been more communicative or charming.

When we arrived at the house and Peter carried our suitcase to the front stoop, James and his beautiful wife Rainy introduced themselves and took us on a tour of our VRBO rental, the lower floor of the building. They were in residence in the upper floor during our stay, and were just a staircase away when we had questions.

The house is split into two different VRBO options, with the upper story having a better view and access to the gentle ocean breezes that cool the place down at night.

Being off-grid, there's a back-to-nature vibe to the house, and the considerate guest (we hope we were considerate!) remains cognizant of the rainwater catchment system (6,000 gallons of available water, so take short, efficient showers!), and the advanced solar electricity (keep the floor fan on speeds 1 & 2, not 3!).

There's an available widow's-walk platform on the roof of the house, which is a perfect place to watch the sunset from, or go star-gazing with a boat drink in hand.

James provided us with bicycles to use during our stay, and we must have put forty miles on those durable vehicles. He provided us with a local cell phone pre-programmed with phone numbers we might need during our stay, from taxi drivers like Peter to bike repair shop, to restaurant delivery services.

A well-stocked kitchen allowed me to cook fresh red snapper I bought on the dock from local fisherman, and my partner made a fresh lime pie, using ingredients we purchased at one of the many local grocery stores.

There is a private dock available, and we walked out on it several times to enjoy the Caribbean beauty that is life in Caye Caulker.

Overall, we couldn't have imagined a better experience, and it was obvious from the very beginning that James and Rainy have thought this experience through completely, solving almost everything before it becomes a problem.

They have crafted a paradise on Earth, and we shall always remember our Caribbean vacation, and the two fine folks who have carved out the perfect VRBO at the southern tip of Caye Caulker.

Relaxing and quiet little place right outside of town

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at James and Rainey’s place. It had all the comforts of home and was a short bike ride away from town. James was very accommodating and gave suggestions on places to eat and which guides to use. Caye Caulker is a sleepy little town where you run into the friends you made the day before. We had a great snorkeling experience with Carlos 2.0 and having dinner at Ana and Armando’s is a must. Hanging out at the Split and watching the sunset is beautiful, but you can see a similar view from the end of the pier out in front of the house. Take time to just explore the island and enjoy the village pace. We will definitely be back!

I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for peace and quiet, wonderful view, and great hosts! James (owner) and Ron helped us tremendously, great guys! Ron went beyond expectations and even helped us recover a lost bag in Belize City and brought it to us at the airport, just in time to catch our flight home...thank you so much Ron!!

Caye Caulker Stay

  • 5 of 5

James and Rainy are amazing hosts. Everything was perfect here. We chose to be further away from all of the bars because we wanted peace and quiet. And this got us out on the bikes every day which was really fun. Highly recommend this place.

Quiet, relaxing and Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing for us. The cottage was cozy and offered much of what we needed, the Veranda and dock perfect for quiet reflection, soaking up the sun or reading a book. We had full use of bikes and a quick 20min ride took us to the city center daily for supplies. We only ate out once , ( Hibisca owned by the neighbors and truly an amazing meal) the rest of the time enjoyed preparing our own meals with fresh local ingredients in the well equipped kitchen. Probably not a place for everyone since it is much like dry camping. Rain water is collected in large catchments( so showers are quick), electricity is solar, stove and fridge run on propane and the septic system can not handle paper. So if you are looking for a place to rest and unwind, this is it. James and Rainie are amazing hosts and are quick to help or offer advice when asked.

Thank you a bunch,

Chris and Lei-Anne

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We enjoyed having you as our guests and we are so glad we could help make your Birthday extra special. Our 6,000 gallon rain-water catchment tank(s), advanced solar power and new septic system are more than what is needed to provide for a hassle-free life style. Here on our small island, we all do our part (including hotels & restaurants) to promote and invest in Eco-sustainable tourism. The casual, elegant lifestyle here at our Casita is a 'Natural Choice' for our love of nature and sustainable living. We are happy you that had a quiet and relaxing time! Come back soon.
