Why Tony Whitehouse chose San Pedro

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.

Amazing and Incredible!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the top vacation our family has ever been on. The house was perfect!! We had a total of 7 on the trip. It was my wife and I and our 5 young adult kids. We highly recommend Dianne’s welcome dinner. She made us a lobster and chicken dinner. We cannot say enough about Alfred. He made the entire trip perfect. We waited until we got to the house and Alfred then set up a fishing trip, snorkeling trip, and our cave tubing trip. He had the trip excursions pick us up and drop us off at our dock. He also got us incredible prices on all he excursions. Do not set anything up prior to getting the house. Alfred takes care of it all. He also set it up to have our 2 golf carts delivered and picked up at our house. On top of setting up all of our activities, he recommended all the dining we did each night on the island. We were never disappointed. We surely got our fill of lobster and Belikin for the week. We highly recommend having lunch and sitting in the tubes at Palapas for drinks. The restaurant sends your drinks down to you in a bucket as you sit in large tubes in the ocean with great people and incredible fish swimming underneath you. We went to rebook the vacation again for next Christmas but it was already booked. We loved the entire experience. The pool, the ocean, the house, and the great breezes always coming off the ocean. It is impossible to not have an incredible experience. Finally, can’t leave out to coolest laid back dog on the island. Poe is awesome. He always hung out with us on the deck and we always wanted him hanging with us.

The view, food and fun!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at BajaMar for 6 days in November. We were one of 5 couples. The home was very comfortable and the space worked well for us. The beach view was beautiful and never got old! Alfred, Dianie and the family take great care of the property, looked after us and took care of our needs. Dianie's food preparation was great and such a great value. We chose to have her make us breakfast every morning and had 4 dinners at the house. We opted not to do golf carts. The road into town is a bit bumpy and further than we expected. We did take a private water transport into town a couple of times which cost us $150 round trip so $30 a couple. We felt safe walking around San Pedro in the evening. Food at restaurants was more expensive then eating at the house. We walked to John's Escape to eat lunch a couple of times and the food was good. They have great pizza. Alfred would check with us daily and would pick up items we needed from the store. He gave us a bill once a day for food prep and groceries. We purchased our alcohol at the airport duty free shop in Belize City. We loved Po, the well behaved dog of Alfred and Dianie. Bring bug spray as there are bitting bugs around. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect family reunion place!

Well equipped, comfortable and convenient to restaurants. Eleven of us had fun and had plenty of space. No one felt on top of the others. Alfred and Dianie saw to our every need! Charming place.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The home has been very well reviewed before so I have little more to add, but the entire experience was wonderful esp because of Alfred and Dianie. Alfred was always available in the background and highly recommend dianie to cook as much as you can as the food is fresh and very good. It is very convienent as well. The home is just as everyone has said before me just beautiful and well decorated and very clean. The beach is manicured everyday and the view is simply awesome! You won’t be disappointed!

Wonderful property and location

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved everything about our stay at BajaMar and Ambergris Caye. The house is beautiful and a perfect location. We were able to travel into San Pedro, Secret Beach and area bars and restaurants easily on golf cart and had a great time doing so. We were there during Independence Day and the local residents and celebration were beautiful and we were so lucky to be able to experience the parade and block party. Alfred and Dianie are so helpful and were eager to accommodate any of our needs. Alfred was able to organize trips for us, reserve and assist with our golf carts and help us in so many other ways. Dianie made a delicious welcome meal and we would recommend to anyone. Not to mention they are some of the nicest people you will meet and we enjoyed getting to know them!! The property is beautiful and very well maintained. We had 5 couples with more than enough room and privacy when desired. Our weather was beautiful despite being there in the rainy season and we would definitely come back at that time of year again. We used Nautilus Express to transport to and from Belize City and that worked out well. We did a bit of grocery shopping before getting on the Nautilus boat...they took us on a grocery run in Belize city and then we picked up anything else needed throughout the week from the various markets around the house and in San Pedro. That worked well for us. Everything was fabulous from the initial booking and correspondence with the owner to our return home when we sadly had to waive goodbye to Alfred on the dock. I would recommend this property to anyone and we would love to come back!

Bajamar 5 week visit

  • 5 of 5

Bajamar is as represented, which is delightful! Alfred and Dianie do everything they can to make your visit as pleasant and enjoyable as they can. The house is well laid out for a family or small group. We were there for five weeks with different groups of six arriving every 12 days. We felt

everything went very smoothly. Alfred and Dianie really do care about your visit to Bajamar. Po, their small dog, is the most laid back small dog I have seen. Christian and John also help with various chores, and are very helpful and pleasant. I would highly recommend a visit to Bajamar.

Regards,

Ken Williams
