  • Five Star Accommodations for a Three Star price!

    "What a wonderful experience! I have not a single negative thing to say about the listing and our stay!!! Yes, it does indeed deserve three !!! Great email communication before our arrival. Rene was waiting for us at the airport for pickup. The van (though not new) was large and fit 6 of us and all our luggage (1 large bag for each couple) with room to spare. The house is in Ladyville, close to Belize City but safer. Ladyville is safe to walk around during the day but not at night. House has a fully chained and locked fence for complete safety. The standard transmission van enabled us to travel to Lamanai: the tallest of all the ceremonial Mayan ruins in Belize, near Orange Walk. We also drove out to the zoo (a must do!), cave tubing, rv-ing and zip lining with Butts-up. It is about 45 minutes to the water ferry in Belize City to head out to Caye Caulker, where we went to snorkle and enjoy the laid backness of the island. We even had the opportunity to drive out onto the Hummingbird Highway to go cave spelunking and cave tubing (very different from Butts-up) at the Blue Hole National Park. Rene is on call at all times and took care of an unexpected flat tire without delay. Make sure to read all the reviews as they are all helpful with your stay."

  • Exactly What We Needed!

    "My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Sapphire House. The place itself is a cute villa surrounded by a large yard that is well maintained and full of exquisite blooms, interesting textures and colors only native to the tropics. We had coffee in the mornings on the porch. There, we were eye-level with all the birds that perched in the canopy of a tall tree. They were not at all afraid of us. The house has a bird guidebook, too, so you can identify what you’re seeing. Inside, the house is nicely furnished and clean. The kitchen has pretty much everything you need though some of the island food is so cheap, you may not want to bother with preparing meals. There’s a tamale man who rides around on a large tricycle with a cooler strapped to the front. His wife’s tamales are truly a treat. Also, there’s a new, open air pupusaria on the island (across from the fake Starbucks) that’s open after 3pm. As you are walking out to The Split, you should also try any of the three vendors that cook right on the beach. All of them are very good and an economical choice. The restaurants are expensive. We also enjoyed the bakery and a man who sells baked goods from his tricycle. The only bad food we had on the island was at the Chinese restaurant across from the bakery. But back to the house! There’s a wonderful library (mostly fiction), so no need to bring books. The internet worked perfectly, even in some very torrential storms. The washer also worked well. Any issues that came up were dealt with by Caye Caulker Rentals very quickly. The sisters that run the agency are wonderful people and we enjoyed talking with them. The only drawback about the agency is that they will tack on 5% to you total cost if you are paying with a credit card. So your total on the contract is not correct if you are using a credit card. We found that the 5% charge is pretty standard on the island if you are using credit cards. We used the ATM at the bank from time to time to avoid extra costs. My husband and I enjoyed snorkeling at The Split, the reef off Caye Caulker and the preserve off Ambergris Caye. We also jogged around the island and took the shelter dogs out for a little exercise. But mostly, we decompressed. We spent two wonderful weeks at Sapphire House with a side trip to Guatemala to see Tikal and Flores. Sapphire house was all we had hoped for and was exactly what we needed."

  • Beautiful and Comfortable

    "We had a fantastic stay at Sunset Pointe in Placencia. Location is close to town and even during the Rainy Season we could use the provided bikes to and from town in minutes. Furnishing and artwork inspired us to hunt in town for local carvers and painters"

  • Relaxing Stay at Sunset Beach Resort

    "I, along with three other friends, recent returned from a great trip to Belize, where we spent part of our time in this condo. The description of the listing was very accurate and the condo fit our needs perfectly. It is in a great location... close enough to easily head into town for dinner or shopping, but far enough away from the activity to be quiet and feel secluded. There are several restaurants and bars within easy walking distance to the resort -- we visited a couple (Island Time, Lone Star, and Nest Grill) during our stay. Chapin does a great job keeping the resort grounds clean and he's available to help with an issues (not that we had any). The pool was great and we never had any issue getting lounge chairs -- admittedly, only about a third of the units were occupied during our stay. The unit is well stocked with plenty of pots, pans, utensils, cups, ice trays, etc. There is even a cabinet with a few beach items, sunscreen, etc. from previous visitors. We loved eating on the private balcony with the gorgeous view and a wonderful breeze. There is also a hammock and several other chairs. We made a couple breakfasts in the unit using eggs and hand-made tortillas from the small market down the street. We also grilled on the BBQ one night. We ended up only doing one snorkeling trip, but it was great. A private tour where they picked us up right from the dock at the resort. We stopped at Hol Chan, Shark Ray Alley, and Coral Gardens, before heading on to Caye Caulker for lunch and time to walk around. The trip was a blast. Since we were there at the end of the dry season, we didn't see many mosquitoes. In fact, rarely used any bug spray and had no bites. We rented a golf cart (highly recommended) which provided us with flexibility to move around the island and we found it a fun way to travel. Note that it can be a bit bumpy for people on the back of the cart. Overall it was a fantastic trip. The other people staying at the resort during our time there were really nice and the atmosphere at the resort is relaxed and friendly. I look forward to visiting Belize again and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again."
