From the moment that I first made contact with Corrina to inquire on the property I knew that Playa Villa Belize would be where our group of 6 would be spending our vacation. Corrina provided exceptional service from the get go providing us details on the property, answering every question we had promptly (and there were many), suggesting potential tours and activities based on our group size and preferences, and scheduling transfers and excursions on our behalf. Without her help our vacation would not have been nearly as enjoyable nor as organized!
As for Playa Villa Belize? Well the pictures don't do it justice! The property is incredibly beautiful and very well kept. The pools were perfect for lounging around on our off days as were the hammocks that were around the house and on the dock. Kayaks were available for our use and the grounds crew was very accommodating of our spontaneous request for a beach fire pit.
The property is set across a lagoon from the city of San Pedro so it provides a quiet and private setting which is great for a group vacation (it was our relaxing oasis) however transfers to the city on the nights we were feeling more rambunctious were easy to obtain. One of the great perks provided to us was the use of a local cell phone which Corrina had pre-programmed with the numbers of taxis, boat drivers, the Playa Villa staff, and herself.
Things I would mention about the property are to make sure you have plenty of bug spray/repellent (it's a tropical place so mosquitoes are a given) and know that the property gets a great deal of wonderful natural light which made sleeping in some days harder than others. That said - waking up and watching the sunrise was my favorite time of the day.
We traveled with a group of 8 people (4 couples). I booked this house about a year ago and spoke with Corrina, via email and telephone, numerous times. I had many concerns as we had never been to Belize before. However, through phone conversations and research, my concerns vanished. Corrina set up all of excursions and they were phenomenal.
The first day we were there, the group decided that they wanted to have a chef come to the house for the entire day. I called Teresa, Corrina's assistant/ property manager, and an hour later had the chef booked for the next day. We also decided to get massages on our pier the same day. One phone call was all it took and we had massages on our island on our dock the same day. We felt like royalty. It is tough to vacation this way!!!
The chefs were amazing. All of our food that day was delicious...words can not do it justice. We were truly spoiled after this. However, the food in San Pedro is fantastic. We did not have one bad meal. The massages were excellent as well.
The house is as pictured. It is fantastic. Villa 1 is perfect for a group of 8. One couple has to share a bathroom but it worked out as the bathroom they shared had two showers. There is a half bath downstairs for the group to use. We had plenty of dishes, cups, etc to prepare full meals. We did buy groceries in San Pedro prior to coming to the island.
This house is on its own private island. We had the place to ourselves for six days and it was incredible. The views are breathtaking. We did not swim in the ocean much but we spent many hours lounging poolside. It was a five minute boat ride to San Pedro. This was perfect. We were able to have quiet time on the island and then party/site see in San Pedro when we wanted.
Last, but not least...DINO...he did everything he could to make our stay fantastic. You could call him on the cell phone provided and he would be there momentarily. He did anything you asked of him at a moments notice. He really does an amazing job as the caretaker. He made our vacation so much more enjoyable.
For those of you with concerns, don't be. Staying in this house was like being at a private resort. We had housekeeping every other day. The toilet paper was never empty. The water station was always full. We didn't have to do much other than lay by the pool and enjoy our vacation.
We did a private snorkel trip with Tony from the Office. This was incredible. He took us to Hol Chan, Shark Ray Alley, and Mexico Rocks. He even took
From the moment I inquired until the day of our dreaded departure-Corrina went above and beyond in assisting us with planning what is to date...the most epic vacation we have ever had!!!
She arranged for our very own private water taxi to transfer us from Belize Int'l Airport directly to the dock at Playa Villa Belize (Rum punch, music, and a fantastic start to our holiday included!)
When we arrived our kitchen/bar was stocked with all of the items we pre-ordered on-line through the grocery provisioning service she hooked us up with - Lagniappe Grocery. I literally walked in the door and was like "omg, this place is insane! We actually get to live here for a week!" I was in my bikini and making margaritas for everyone within minutes and my husband was already preparing the BBq for the fresh fish we had ordered that Terressa was already marinating. Thanks Terressa! (Teressa and Kevin do the grocery provisioning and are also the owners of Lagniappe Belize Chef Services). They provided us breakfast, lunch, and dinner the next day and the food was so delish we ended up hiring them every other day we were there.( I may sound overly excited but I can't even begin to describe how smooth our trip was and how rare it is to receive such amazing service)
Dino, Dino, Dino...I wish we could have kidnapped him! He was like one of the family by the time we departed. Dino was our Captain and is also the on-site Caretaker who is always there to help with anything! And we loved our little water taxi's to town and back...the weather was so nice, the water taxi to/from town was always looked forward to. (The water taxi is $2.50/person each way which was nothing compared to the pricing of the other taxi's in San Pedro town. And once we got dropped off at the dock at The Office Bar/Grill we could walk anywhere in town due to the close proximity of the property. For those of you, like myself, wondering if the property is too far from town- it's not. Basically, if they picked up the property and moved it 1 mile East they would be right in the middle of the Central Park in the heart of San Pedro. We loved that we could be in the hustle and bustle of town but then go back to the villa and have total privacy - away from it all.
The snorkelling was amazing - Corrina hooked us up with a Catamaran Day Sail and Cave Tubing. We got to swim with Turtles, Nurse Sharks, , Sting Rays, and Manatees!! Best holiday ever - hands down!!
Had a great time in San Pedro, Belize City and other locations. Dino was amazing!! The house is absolutely beautiful.
We did not realize that one of the bedrooms does not have air conditioning or its own bathroom. Also washing machine is in another location, not in the house itself. Those were our only surprises.
Our stay at Villla One was simply fabulous! In our 10 years of renting vacation homes over spring break, this was easily the best service our two families have ever received at one of the most beautiful homes we have ever rented. Even before we officially booked our week, Corrina was amazing with her information on the house and island. Once we arrived, Corrina, Dino and Armando were great to our families. Corrina helped arrange all of our excursions including a spur of the moment snorkeling trip with Tony that was awesome! We rented golf carts for the week via Corrina, and that, too, worked out perfectly. It seemed like Dino never slept, as he was always busy making sure our stay was exceptional. Armando, too, was there whenever we called him for a lift to or from our perfect "private" island retreat. The house was clean, well stocked with needed household items and comfortable. We highly recommend grocery service - we used what Corrina recommended with no regrets. Our teenage kids (and the adults as well) loved hanging out by the pool and beach with Foxy and Chica, Dino's dogs who are both super sweet and good soccer players. We recommend Blue Water Grill, Casa Picasso, and Caramba! for dinner -- and yummy drinks. The Palapa Bar up north is a great spot for lunch or just a drink over the water. The Office Bar and Restaurant from where we were picked up to head to the house has awesome drinks, good food and great people - we would go back just for this place alone! This house was perfect for our two families with four adults and 3 young teenagers - it might not be perfect for very young children or the very elderly because of the dock, tiled pool deck and floors, and spiral staircase. We seriously cannot say enough about this beautiful home, Corrina, Dino and Armando. If you are thinking about Ambergris Caye, you should stay at this home. Lastly, we took both the ferry and the local airline to and from Belize City -- and flying is well worth the few extra bucks. (Did I mention Corrina helped us set up our flight back to the Belize City airport at the last minute - she is great and feels like a long, lost member of the family.) Thanks to all for an amazing spring break 2015!
Upon arrival we were met by Corrina and taken over to our water taxi. Upon pulling up at our property we were met by our caretaker Dino who assisted us with our luggage. The property is exactly as the posted picture. The house is very clean and very nice with a wading pool in front. The stunning sunsets and the peace and serenity over here was unbelievable. We had a total of 7 of us in our group and the house accommodated us with no problems. The rooms are spacious. The house has a great set-up. Our caretaker Dino is an amazing guy and an absolute joy. He's awake before you in the early mornings cleaning and working around the property and up until long after you are asleep. If you leave the house and happen to leave a dish in the sink he will have it cleaned and put away before your return. Corrina also was so hospitable and helpful in every way. She made our day trips unforgettable and booked us with the right companies. The island is relatively private so if you are seeking seclusion you have it. It's a short water taxi ride (maybe 5 minutes). We had a great time and all 7 of us would return in a heartbeat to this property and this location. Some things to know if you rent the larger house it does have a "wading pool only" it is not a swim able. Corrina makes sure you have a daily water taxi included in your rate. If you do a second trip you will pay about $20.00 US per trip. The golf cart rentals even though Corrina was all over them and confirming and reconfirming our rentals they aren't going to work on your time so be patient. Corrina is amazing and has a wealth of knowledge about tour operators etc. If you aren't on a budget she can book the best day trips. The lobster and fishing trip was absolutely fantastic which Corrina booked for us. The reef is so beautiful and the snorkeling and diving is a must do. One evening we asked our caretaker to get us some fresh fish. Not only did he get us the fresh fish, but he helped us cook it. Dino also helped the kids find fresh coconuts and helped them get them open. Great trip!
This stunning property was a lovely stay. A private island, with a private dock. Beautiful interior with many bedrooms, well-equipped kitchen and draped in travertine! Private pool to lounge outside at night.
Having travelled extensively thru Belize, San Pedro is the most beautiful island to visit. I came for the blue hole and to dive the barrier reef. There were many five star dive shops on the island to accommodate my dive goals.
Coming back home to this stunning property turned the vacation from great to spectacular! Being able to cook meals and enjoy the private pool and view rounded out a great trip to ambergris:) thank you Corrina for being an amazing host! I look forward to my next visit
