Lovely family home in the culture capital of Belize

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location on the main street in town. Clean, comfortable, cool and airy. The owners are super sweet and very accommodating. We unexpectedly had a very late check in and one of the owners waited patiently for us and asked if there was anything they could assist us with. Nice surprise touches like fruit basket and mints. Can’t say enough good things about this house and the owners!

The Lewis family vacation home was a great choice for our six week stay. The house is exactly as described. It was very clean and very well equipped. Right down to the Garifina cook book. The deck is always blessed with a cooling breeze. The street can be so, so hot but the deck is comfortable for sitting and reading or just watching the people go by. Dangriga is a great location for tours to the cayes to snorkel,check out the Orange and Banana plantations and factories and the Mary Sharp hot sauce factory or to the inland caves for tubing or exploring the Mayan culture with a guide to help understand what you are seeing. The Jaguar Perserve is an amazing walk through the tropical vegetation and then to see the waterfall at the end. Placancia is a typical tourist town with lots of restaurants and the Best ice cream. Punta Gorda is a good place to take in chocolate factories and more Belizian culture and landscape.

The housekeeper is amazing and always there to answer any questions. The owner is fantastic. Only an email or phone call away. Joe was our guide for the town and area and showed us around Dangriga

whit the pride of a Belizian citizen.The taxi driver became a real friend and we appreciated the friendship very much. The people in Belize are friendly and so proud of their country.

Thank you to the Lewis family for sharing your home we truly enjoyed our stay.

We had a wonderful time in Dangriga, Belize. The Lewis house is in the center of this lively city. Dangriga has an active Garifuna cultural scene, especially during the Christmas holidays. It is a great jumping-off point for tours of the Mayan ruins, jaguar preserve, the cayes and points south. Take advantage of local meals with Nen, their cousin, and of Julio Saqui, an excellent Mayan tour guide for the ruins and preserve.

We were fortunate to be able to stay at the Lewis House for 2 weeks. The house and Dangriga Town is as delightful as the ad suggests. The house is spacious, very clean, and with the convienence of the full kitchen and laundry it is a very comfortable dwelling. It was almost like staying at home! And yes, the veranda is marvelous. We spent many of our evenings sitting on that veranda, with a cool drink, conversing with our new friends, watching the sun set and Dangriga begin begin its "night life".

We have been to Belize before, but I have found the citizens of Dangriga to be the most friendly and helpful of anywhere in the country. We were greeted with people saying "Welcome to my beautiful country" as we walked the streets. Mrs. Rose Diego, the local owner of the Lewis House is an exquisite hostess. She explained the workings of the house lovingly and in great detail. She provided needed resourses and was able to inform us of the perfect guide (Julio Saqui) for our excursions into the Cockscomb Basin wildlife Sanctuary (jaguar reserve)and to the nearby Mayan ruins. Rose was on "24 hour call" to help us with all of our questions.

If you are traveling to southern Belize, don't miss this wonderful town and the fantastic people at the Lewis House. It was a delightful experience for us. Jan
