  • The PERFECT place to stay on Ambergris Caye

    "Great location- proximity to town, restaurants, palapa bar over the water. But most importantly for me is proximity to the reef. Just a quick kayak ride out to the reef, tie the kayak to your foot, and snorkel away. Amazing!!!! Great house- big open, airy floor plan. Right on the beach. Big front yard IS the beach and then our own dock. Rent a bike and a kayak and you're set! And Oscar and Orfa take care of everything. So helpful, clean the house every other day. And Caye Management is awesome to work with. Have stayed twice and will only stay at Casa Bonita when we return to Belize. Although some of their other houses do look nice too..."

  • A perfect place for R&R; Great access to local fare and activites

    "We couldn't be happier with our stay here the past week. The house is super cute, clean, and relaxing. We love the hammock and deck. We used the kitchen well, cooking various meals throughout the week, finding we had all that we needed. The bedroom, bathroom, and shelves are all thoughtfully arranged and placed. The sea is in view and a short walk away. Restaurants are close by as well as several grocery stores. We enjoyed walking the village and beach and getting out to snorkel. We used Discount Belize Shuttles to get down to the house, and we recommend them heartily. Placencia is worth the extra travel to get off the beaten path, yet it offers the activities and amenities a traveler wants. Penny is great to work with and answered our questions and gave us recommendations. We are so thankful we found Rand, Penny, and Casita Margarita!"

  • Amazing Month at Casa Ixchel

    "A friend and I spent the month of February, 2017 at Casa Ixchel. Everything about Casa Ixchel is wonderful. It is spacious, well appointed, and located in a very quiet section of Ambergris Caye. It is a bonus that the Lone Star Grill is located just steps from the condo. A short walk south along the shore there is a small pool-side eatery associated with a condo complex. A bit further south and you'll run into a fabulous beach-side "zoo" with animals made from natural and found objects. Worth the short walk. Apparently you can walk north almost to the town of San Pedro (we didn't) and there are restaurants along the way. We can honestly say we enjoyed the roadside bar-b-que or stewed chicken, rice/beans and slaw at roadside eateries such as Robins or Delicias as much as restaurant fare. Casa Ixchel had everything we needed. We would have given Casa Ixchel 5 stars except for a 2 week period where we had water pressure problems and sometimes had only a trickle of water. Showering was difficult. We heard it was an island-wide problem, but our complex seemed to be hit especially hard. Check with the owners to see if the problem is resolved. To take advantage of the many things to do on Ambergris Caye, we recommend renting a golf cart. We especially liked going to the hermit crab races at Crazy Canucks and to secret beach. The Sunday corn-hole tournament at the Truck Stop (north of the bridge) also was fun. We rented a cart for the month and were able to negotiate a price that was half of that originally quoted. We recommend Cholo's even though the golf carts are not as high end as others. The deck in front of Casa Ixchel took a hit in the August, 2016 hurricane and about a fourth of the dock and the palapa were destroyed. Nevertheless, we snorkeled off the end of the dock - there are steps leading into the water - and had the pleasure of seeing yellow stingrays, which are relatively rare. We snorkeled at Caye Caulker with Hicaco Tours (highly reccomended), and especially liked the sites of south channel, coral gardens, and shark/ray village. They also took us to see a tarpon nursery and seahorses. Our favorite snorkeling on Ambergris was with Chuck and Robbie to Mexico Rocks where we saw turtles, eels, sharks, and lots of fish. Regardless of the water pressure problem, we highly recommend Casa Ixchel and thank Armando, Angela and the wonderful people of Belize for a great vacation."

    "Everything was beyond expectations. The house and community were more beautiful than the pictures. Communication with the owners and staff was excellent before and during our vacation. The pre-travel assistance in arranging airport transfers was above and beyond helpful. Everyone including the house manager, concierge, housekeeper and chef did everything possible to make our trip extraordinary. Would gladly return."
