About Jeff

We purchased nearly 500 feet of beachfront property in Belize and love the island and the people who live here. Property was originally Son & Sea Camp. A Christian Summer Camp for the Children of Belize. The property now consists of a Casita on the beach and a house on the dock as well as Chat~n~Chill restaurant featuring great food and drinks right on the beach of the Caribbean Sea

Jeff purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Jeff chose San Pedro

We love being away from the traffic and congestion of San Pedro. Ten miles north of town, easily accessible with rental golf cart or water taxi. Far enough away to have peace and quiet, but close enough to drive in to town for shopping or a meal

What makes this cottage unique

You are literally sleeping over the water. The house is constructed on the dock. The most amazing views in all of Belize. The peace and quiet of camping, with walls and a roof.

The Perfect Escape

  • 5 of 5

This was a little bit of paradise. We loved being out over the water with the constant breeze. Our favorite spot was the end of the dock at sunrise! The staff was friendly and attentive. We were there when neither the owners nor other guests were there so we felt like they were there just for us! Adrian, Henry, Isis, Glendy and Balbina were absolutely fabulous! They were super helpful and wonderful to visit with and learn more about the island in general. We came for a relaxing getaway and this location fit the bill. And the food at the Chat'n'Chill was wonderful!

We only had one issue. The first night we didn't tuck the mosguito net in under the mattress so the "no see'ums" and mosquitoes got to us. We learned after that and did not have any problems the follow nights.

The only thing we would change in the living quarters would be to move the bed to the ocean side of the dwelling instead of the shore side. The breeze always seemed to be better on that side and you could wake up looking at the sunset!

The property was perfect! The exact getaway we were looking fo!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at the Casa Del Mar /Chat N Chill home. The staff was amazing, very friendly, helpful and made us feel at home. The coziness and simplicity of the house was just great. We enjoyed the peacefulness and serenity of this great location. We needed a break from the cold Wisconsin weather and enjoy some sun. Thank you for letting us stay at your great place!

We've Been Bad...Please Put Us In Timeout RIGHT HERE! (Julie & The Big Baby)

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing property! We came looking for a place to recharge our internal batteries, and we found that here. Every last detail about this little house over the water is perfect. Everything written in the property description is spot on--the pictures really don't capture just how lovely it is. Anyone who feels some hesitation about the restroom/shower facility being on the beach--please don't. Middle of the night trips to the restroom (by choice--accommodations are made in the house, if you prefer) were no issue at all. Nice robes are provided for trips to the shower--showering outdoors with a view of the water and lush jungle is a great way to start a day. I spent a lot of time on the dock, reading, relaxing, soaking up the sun and the views. We really loved the location of the property. 10 miles out of town when driving a golf cart on a bumpy road is a bit of a trek--but also loads of fun! I kind of hope the road is always bumpy so that it stays kind of wild and remote on that end of the island. While I did not have an opportunity to meet the owners, I cannot say enough positive things about our interactions with them. We have stayed at a number of VRBO properties, and I have never been provided such thorough and HELPFUL information! We felt very confident navigating the airport and transfer to Tropic Air thanks to the detailed helpful hints. The staff. Wow! What a friendly, accommodating group of people! Just stellar service from each of them. We enjoyed many meals at the Chat & Chill--so convenient! Our last night there, Balbina made us a special meal--even though we forgot to ask her! Glendy & Isis provided us with breakfast our last morning there--even though they aren't open for breakfast. Henry & Adrian were tending the property and any little thing we might need while there. Elvis, the electrician, happened to be working on property a couple of the days during our stay--also very friendly (plus I got to meet his precious baby daughter--bonus!) If you are a scuba diver, it is nice to note that there is a dive operation a couple of docks down to the north--they will pick you up right from your own dock. Can't beat that! If you are looking to spend an afternoon snorkeling, I would recommend driving 4 miles further down the road and visiting Tranquility Bay. You can have lunch and then snorkel right from the shore. The reef is very close and the water is shallow--so lots of bright colored little fish--really pretty!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a wonderful vacation! Would highly recommend staying here; and definitely plan to visit again. Both of the houses (one over the water and one on the beach) are in fantastic shape and are beautiful. The grounds are very well kept up with comfy chairs and beach games setup throughout. The whole area is so peaceful and not far to get to Secret Beach, North shore area where the reef touches the land, and other restaurants. The onsite staff are so friendly; thanks Adrian, Isis, Glendy, and Henry!

Perfect paradise

  • 5 of 5

Heaven on earth, is the best way to describe what Jeff and Tamera have created. As you enter the property you see pride not only by Jeff and Tamera but the staff as well. The grounds are manicured to perfection, buildings are clean and brightly painted with exciting and up building colors. We was greeted promptly by Adrian with his kind smile and gentleman demeanor he has. He took us to our little paradise house on the dock,showed us the many books and movies for our reading and watching leisure, and showed us throughout the house asking if we had any questions, and if we would like breakfast and at what time. The next morning after we had a wonderful nites sleep with the breeze flowing over us allnight we went for breakfast and was greeted by the many beautiful smiles of Isis,she made us a wonderful breakfast that prepared us for the rest of the day. Later in the evening we returned to and sat down for our evening meal and was greeted by glendie for our order she has a warm beautiful smile and and is fun to be around and makes you feel at home and Isis once again made us a great meal.Jeff came by and introduced himself and we all had a wonderful chat over a couple of drinks. Jeff is very proud of his family and after visiting about the boys and Tamera i can see why. Tamera was not able to be there but we felt like we got to know her by the wonderful things Jeff expressed about her and that do to her all of the amenities available to use was her going. We stay for a week and every day was better and better. Every day Isis Glendie Adrian Jeff was a part of our day them a couple Randy and Christina from Michigan joined us turns out they knew many people that Jeff and Tamera knew so it was fun listening to them and Jeff talking about them. By the time we had to leave we felt like we was leaving a part of our family behind. We got to spend a special morning with Glendie and Isis and later that day with Adrian,each one of them have such a warm loving kind personality’s that make them easy to become family like so it made it hard to leave. We will always cherish the new friends we made at the chat n chill. Wish we could give more than five stars. So Jeff Tamera Adrian Isis Glendie Henery Balbina when you go out to the dock house and look up at the stars, thats how many you deserve. Thanks for the wonderful stay.
