  • Truly Paradise - comfortable, clean, great service, excellent location

    "Never having been to Belize before, my daughter and I took a stab in the dark on this property and were very happy with our choice. There are plenty of cheaper places available, but this was worth the price we paid. It's well managed by Nellie's Property: Nellie reached out shortly after our booking to set up our flights from Belize City to San Pedro (no upcharge for that), met us upon arrival and took us to the property, brought my suitcase to me the next day when the airline finally delivered it, and were very responsive whenever we had a question. The condo is very clean, with daily maid service, and includes everything you need, and everything worked. There's an A/C unit and ceiling fan in the living room and also in the bedroom. The description said it didn't have beach towels but there were two there when we stayed. I'm glad I brought my own, though, as it takes a long time for anything to dry in that climate so with 4 towels we always had 2 dry ones. It's one of only about 8 units on the property with an unobstructed ocean view. The property is beautiful with meticulously maintained landscaping and pool; really the best we saw in the area. We loved that we could walk everywhere we wanted to go. It's very close to two grocery stores (we recommend the K-Mart, aka Caye Mart), and lots of bars and restaurants (we enjoyed drinks and lunch several times at the Sand Bar, a few steps north of the property). And, best of all, we loved Chuck & Robbie's Dive Shop, just a few steps north of the property. We did a total of 7 dives with them, including a night dive, all of which were fantastic. Robbie is great as are all of the dive masters. He doesn't offer dives to the Blue Hole so he sent us to Amigo's del Mar, just a few steps south of the property, and they provided a fabulous day at the Blue Hole and Half Moon Caye. FYI, the fishing outfits and dive shops all give a 10-12% discount if you pay cash with either U.S. or Belize dollars. I wish I had brought more U.S. dollars (at least $1,000 USD) so I didn't have to pay the exchange fee at the ATM. But I digress - this property is fabulous and I highly recommend it."

  • Returning to 'normal' was so hard after the "Sandcastle"

    "I read the reviews thoroughly before finally deciding on this place,. It took us 12 hours to get there, but upon rounding the corner and seeing the first view of the pier and ocean, and then coming in to find not one but TWO gift baskets from Carolyn (one for the second arrivals in our group who would arrive the next day and stay downstairs), we knew we'd chosen the best. The main family room upstairs has high ceilings, is airy and opens onto the balcony...the beach activities from the rental hut made everything special, as we kayaked to the reef almost daily to snorkel, and my personal favorite was the stand up paddle board, which I used to cruise around the docks in our area. And as so many people have said, William the caretaker rocks! He felt like family, but more importantly, he taught my 3 boys (one with special needs, 15, one just turned 18 and one 21) about making the most out of nature. He showed them spear fishing and how to catch fish (as he does daily) with a coke bottle wrapped with twine -- something endlessly fascinating to my husband who always goes. He also does wood carvings! We brought home a stunning sting ray and hammerhead shark sculpture, and coasters he signed for us. He also gave us his coconut demonstration -- how to break one open if you had to survive..and his key lime juice demonstration. Local honey, local brown sugar, key limes....YUM! Marvin, his friend, also helps out and we loved the dogs so much we brought them in to watch tv with us a couple of nights. :) Here's a YouTube video of the coconut demonstration, done inside the tiki hut bar in the yard: https://youtu.be/8spq4qqKhKw SIDE TRIPS: At Carolyn's recommendation, we used Seaduced for the Caye Caulker Day Sail ($100 per person, day trip) to go to Hol Chan, Shark & Ray Alley, and Caye Caulker. The guides were charming and knowledgeable and the infamous rum punch made for a very social group. We made sure to pick a day when cruise ships weren't in port. We used Caribbean Adventures to visit Altun Ha (we had the whole place to ourselves)and Cave Tubing in one day -- Cave Tubing was amazing. And...definitely call Aurora! She came to the house and made a grilled lobster/ribs feast that was less costly than any of the local restaurants. Mamba was our favorite, Rojo's was good: but fair warning - they are EXPENSIVE, as are all groceries. Tip: Using cash will save you 12.5% on tours. This was a special house, lots of wonderful memories."

  • Beautiful House and Great Management

    "We couldn't have asked for a better vacation. From day 1 talking with the management company of The Palm House, the process was very easy. Both Charles and Courtney were very easy to get ahold of. They responded to my e-mails (always filled with questions and concerns) in a timely manner. We can't thank them enough-Courtney made our trip very easy-making sure we were comfortable in the house and gave us information on activities around the area. We had a party of 8 people-which the house accommodated us all very comfortably. The beach was perfect, in fact there was always someone who maintained the property every morning. There are canoes, bikes and kayaks in the house for us to use-this was nice because we all were able to hang out together in the house while doing some exploring in the area. Captain George is a must! The group really like snorkeling and swimming with baby sharks. He was very very considerate of the people in the boat who were "slightly scared". He was with them the entire time, making sure they also had an enjoyable experience. Everyone in the group I was with talked about returning back to Belize and staying at the Palm House again."

  • Wonderful Family Vacation!!!

    "Our entire family decided to do something different this vacation. This was the best. It is away from town and a perfect setting for fun. I saw manna rays from the pier and fished with my morning coffee. The Villa was perfect, Victor and Naomi are angels, and the swimming pool was the perfect fun (and shaded often) for the 3 year old. The balcony was a great place to sit and enjoy the view. The beach was well kept, but the swimming is best from the end of the pier with your snorkels. Older kids took the kayak out to the water break and had an adventure. The excursions picked us up on the pier too. It was just great! Can't say enough about how well we were treated!"
