  • 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."

  • Awesome home on the lagoon

    "Jason and Marisha could not have been better hosts, The home was the equivalent to a 5 star hotel and if your lucky enough to book it don't waste any time just do it...."

  • Outstanding!

    "This condo is excellent! My friend and I had a wonderful time. I cannot say enough positive things about this place. The place is even better than advertised in the photos which don't do it justice. It is spacious, clean, with a modern kitchen and appliances. Both bedrooms have queen beds that are very comfortable, and each room has its own clean and modern bathroom (mine even had a Jacuzzi tub). There is a huge patio porch and a nice pool and dock right there. And the air conditioning works perfectly. The location is fantastic, it is a about a 12 minute golf cart ride into town. The best part about it is the ease and smoothness of the process that Barb and Keith have set up. The property manager is professional and responsive, you get picked up at the airport by Armando who then takes you to get groceries, and Diego and the security guard (forgot his name) are awesome. I would go there again in a heartbeat and miss it already!"

  • A Peaceful Oasis

    ""We" are two couples who shared a cabana suite for nearly a week. The Maine Stay was perfect in every way especially the location. We felt as though we were away from the world but really had easy access to restaurants, town (we did have a car) and all the Belizian adventures one could want. We enjoyed our Monkey River Creole tour (Nite Wind tours) and our Cockscomb adventure with Doyle Gardiner. Although we could have cooked, we opted for dinners out after enjoying watching the sunset over the lagoon. Dawn's in town and the Bistro up the street were two favorites. The Green Parrot serves a delicious breakfast. But after our adventures, we could return to the calm and beauty of The Maine Stay to enjoy that beautiful property -.swimming, kayaking or simply relaxing in the wonderful ocean breezes. We hope to return."
