Why Tony Whitehouse chose Ambergris Caye

While all beautiful places have their individual charms, nowhere on earth has given me the same sense of a yearning to return than here at BajaMar on Ambergris, the “Isla Bonita”.

As a brief background to the house, at the end of 2007 I bought the land, five miles north of San Pedro Town, to build BajaMar as a tropical home. The intention was to enable my wife and I to escape the cold winters of Europe; that I might fly-fish the surrounding salt water flats during my retirement and the decision was made with some vague and eccentric middle aged whim of investment. While the conceptual layout of the house was mine, the fine architectural design is entirely to the credit of local architect, Sue Courtenay. The house was completed in 2010 after a prolonged and challenging construction period of some two and a half years. Every single material for the construction was brought to the site by barge.

50th Anniversary Paradise

  • 5 of 5

House manager Alfred and his dog Po met our water taxi at the dock. He welcomed us with open arms and our grand kids fell in love with Po on the spot. The house is beautiful and was set up exactly as we had requested. Our welcome dinner was great, Dianie is a wonderful cook, so much so we ate several meals at the house. Our son's said "Alfred advise is never wrong", here's why; He told us Monday and Tuesday would be the best days to tour the Mian ruins and snorkel, he was so right as just one example. Also, the weather was stormy on our day of departure so Alfred took the initiative to converted our planned water taxi back to the mainland to a airplane hop. A lifesaver as far as we were concerned. Dianie prepared a great Thanksgiving dinner for us of shrimp and lobster and we felt so comfortable with Alfred and Dianie we asked the to share dinner with us. We had a wonderful evening with many stories about Belize and it's history, things you'll never learn from a travel guide. The two of them were always available with caring help and wisdom. And the golf carts were a hoot.

It's evident the house and property are a labor of love by it's owner Tony Whitehouse and the caretakers he has chosen. The house and property and the island was a perfect place for our extended family of 11 to celebrate our 50th. We hoped for something great and BaHa Mar sure did the job. If there were 10 stars to pick from to rate the property we would have chosen 12.

Couldn't have asked for more!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was a stress-free adventure from start to finish. Tony was very attentive and helpful as we prepared for the trip. Alfred met us on the dock and managed every need we could possibly have from the moment we stepped onto the property. Throughout our stay, he found the perfect balance of complete accessibility without being intrusive on our vacation.

The house was incredible, the pool was refreshing, and the view from the porches was unbelievable! Two of our group wanted to set up a dive trip within minutes of us arriving; Alfred didn't blink an eye and had everything set up for the next morning before we had even sorted out rooms. He managed dive trips, snorkeling, golf carts, and misc. needs all along the week. He even recommended the best places to check out in San Pedro!

Dianie made us an amazing welcome dinner of chicken, beans, and rice. It was delicious and so much food we were still eating it the next day! Her lobster dinner on our last night was perfect too!

The sunrises looked fake they were so beautiful. And the best part of the house staff was by far Po (sorry Alfred!)! That little dog was the sweetest, most well behaved pup I've ever seen. At the end of the trip we were all fighting over who could take Po home and trying to sweet talk Alfred into letting us stay - none of us wanted to leave.

I can't say enough about BajaMar, it's gracious owner, and the amazing staff there that keep things running like a well oiled machine. If you get the chance to enjoy this amazing place, take it!

Incredible house, incredible experience!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Belize with 2 families: 4 adults and 9 children ranging in ages from 6-20. This house had everything we could ever want or need!! The tropical breeze refreshed us, the view of the water and reef amazed us! We relaxed and we kept busy! Snorkeling was dramatic: things we've never seen before!! Mexico rocks and Hol Chan Marine Reserve offered swimming with sharks, Rays, sea turtles, outstanding views of underwater reefs and fish! We cooked and enjoyed the local eateries! We loved Alfred, the caretaker. He went above and beyond to arrange exciting excursions and knew all the right people!! His wife cooked Fish tacos for the whole group that we still dream about. We absolutely loved it and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone!!!

Fun week

  • 4 of 5

Spent 1 week with 12 family members at BajaMar! Overall, it was wonderful & fun! House & staff were great. There are minor things in the house, that need attention.

Also, some of the outside things that come with the house, also need attention.

Staff was great helping us all week! Cheers to them!!

Incredible Week at Baha Mar

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 (6 adults, 2 teenagers, 2 children) just returned from a fantastic week at Baha Mar!

Working with Tony, the owner, was an easy, seamless experience. This was my first time booking anything on vrbo, so I was a little nervous. Tony was attentive, responded to questions very quickly and offered great suggestions to the many questions I had. He even asked how we needed the beds arranged before we arrived.

The house and grounds are better than pictured. The house sits right on a beautiful beach. The view is amazing. The house is well appointed and everything we needed was provided. Note-the three downstairs suites are separate units. To go upstairs to the living quarters, you have to go outside. It wasn't an issue for us, we just weren't expecting it.

We LOVE the staff at this property and it's clearly what sets it apart from other properties. Alfred took care of everything...he booked excursions, transportation, golf carts-really anything we needed, or wanted. (The 9 year old in our group loves Frosted Flakes. He showed up one morning with a box for her.) We took a welcome meal from Dianie. It was so good that we booked four more meals throughout the week with her. Make sure you have her coconut rice and back beans! By the end of the week, we considered Alfred a friend and tried to convince him to come to Texas with us.

Overall, our experience far exceeded our expectations. I wish I was there now. :-)

Everything from start to finish was "over the top" regarding our stay at this property.

  • 5 of 5

The house was so beautiful and from the moment we arrived, Alfred was more than hospitable to all of us along with his helpers. The private swimming pool was very clean and perfect temperature. Would highly recommend that Dianie make a few meals for you as they were like high end restaurant style quality and she even made a birthday cake for our son. I am spreading the word on this place as it was more than I ever dreamed of. So clean, comfortable, well maintained and probably the best vacation I've ever had with the whole family. Alfred arranged all of our fishing and snorkeling excursions and set up our golf cart rentals for going out. When we went out at night (or day) he always made sure things were locked up and kept safe while away. So many wonderful restaurants close by as well. Enjoyed his dog Po as well whom goes wherever Alfred goes.
