  • No hassle and stress free vacation

    "Our vacation began the minute we walked out of the Belize City airport. The owner(Tony) and care taker(Alfred) of the casa BajaMar recommended our group (10 of us) take the Nautalis water taxi to the home. As promised, they were there waiting for us and loaded up our luggage and got us on the boat and took us directly to the dock where we were met by Alfred and his great dog Po. He immediately made us all feel comfortable and welcome. All of the rooms were very clean, roomy and views to die for. One of my main concerns before we left on the trip was setting up day and night snorkeling trips, but Tony highly recommended we just wait until we arrived and that Alfred would set everything up. I was a bit anxious about that as we were there over the Christmas holidays and I feared everything would be booked. Well no worries about that as Alfred has connections ha ha. Alfred said "lets just set up these excursions on the best days and when you all feel like it". Fortunately the weather was always fantastic, but he chose the perfect days and we just walked out to the dock when our excursion boat (coral divers) arrived. Alfred literally handled everything. Talk about easy and convenient... wow. Genie (guide and boat driver with Coral Divers) was fun, easy going, knowledgeable and had some tasty rum punch for our adventures. We did several snorkels. Hol Chan/shark ray alley, and Mexico rock(which was our personal favorite) and also a night snorkel to Mexico rock. We also went to Caye Caulker island, walked around and had a fabulous lunch at a restaurant right at the dock we tied up to. After we left Caye Caulker, Genie took us by boat to the other side of the island and we fed the tarpon fish right out of our hands. We all thought that was pretty cool! Life back at the home was as relaxing and beautiful as one could imagine. We had two golf carts(4 and 6 seater) so occasionally went to local store for a few items or a longer drive into San Pedro for a bigger shop. Take cash though as there is a toll (2.50 belizian each way) to enter San Pedro. One of our favorite stops was the "truck stop" (maybe a mile before San Pedro)which had a great bar and ice cream shop! The best advice I can give on this trip though was to have Dianie cook all the supper meals.....amazing cook and more reasonable than local restaurants. But most of all... Trust Alfred to book everything and just enjoy the majestic beauty of this amazing home and relax! Truly a 5 star vacation."

  • 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."

  • Paradise!

    "We just go back from a week stay at Casa B'Alam and it was simply amazing. The pictures shown are exactly what you get - paradise! We started off our vacation with massages from Wendy - best massage ever - and that set the tone for the rest of the week. Definitely recommend renting the golf carts for the week. Some places are close to walk to along the beach or the main road but would not want to do the walk after dark. Restaurants were good nearby (Jamaya, Rojo (closed Sundays and Mondays), and Rendevous were great) and was definitely worth going into town to Blue Water Grill - did both the regular menu (Snook was amazing) and Sushi night. Amazing snorkeling. Came close enough to kiss the Sea Turtle at the Mexican Rocks. Roberto from Portofino was an excellent guide. Hol Chan was also amazing. Only thing we'd do different is take a plane from Belize City to San Pedro. Boat ride was not fun. On the way in, we were packed like sardines all hot and sweaty and on the way out, it was raining, most windows were closed, and even though we were not packed in like sardines the carbon monoxide filled the inside of the boat and made a couple people sick. Can't wait to go back to the island and we would definitely stay at Casa B'Alam again."

  • Is this Heaven ? YES! - Belize it!!!

    "o.k. . . a cheesy title but absolutely not a cheesy condo !! (we are from Wisconsin !!) We Loved everything about this condo and our experience at Grand Caribe. Best Ever and we are still raving about it and cannot wait to return !! Absolutely decadent and beyond any expectation. We're pretty particular travelers and there is not a single thing we would have called out on this adventure in Jays condo or at the Grand Caribe. Condo - EXCEPTIONAL !! right down to the different towel animals every day. Our awesome house keeping person even found the small animal thing my daughter left in her shorts pocket which went thru the laundry. The staff was EXCELLENT ! - they were able to assist in excursion arrangements that were last minute to due schedule changes. Accommodating and super friendly. Not like they "had to" but like they "wanted to". Huge benefit in staying in Belize. the locals truly value tourism. The condo had everything, and I mean EVERYTHING imaginable. Views, comfort, quiet - Even considering the construction next door, it was still Quiet ! Amazing ! The only thing I would have wanted and didnt experience is Wi-fi on the patio. But that's just super indulgent. The wi-fi worked perfectly . .right up to the patio threshold :-) Awesome amenities, Exceptional experience, Excellent staff . . it truly was the 'Land of Make Belize' !! We'll be back . . . thanks Jay !"
