Heaven On Earth

  • 5 of 5

What a picture perfect location! Water's Edge is a lovely home on the North end of Ambergris Caye. Very quiet but easy access to quite a few restaurants nearby. We rented golf carts so it was easy to go on adventures all over the island. The house has all kinds of equipment that we used on a daily basis...kayaks, bikes, snorkeling equipment, floaties and a beautiful Palapa at the end of the dock! The caretaker Edvin and his wife Natalie were always available to help us with anything we needed from assistance with equipment to snorkeling tour recommendations. For those who like to kayak and snorkel...It was an easy kayak out to the reef from the house. Also easy for kite boarders to take off right from the beach in front of the house!! Our family of 6 highly recommends this property.

Belize Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

Holy Cow!! Where do I even start ... I have been all over the world but this was the most relaxing vacation ever. Not only was the scenery and accommodations beautiful but the services from Edvin (the houses care taker) and his wife during our stay was like nothing I have ever experienced, they truly tended to our every need- often before we even knew it was something we needed! There was not a worry or care to be had, everything was taken care of and as a result we were all really able to just completely relax. We HIGHLY recommend Waters Edge and look forward to going back in the future.

Although we enjoyed our entire stay below are some of my recommendations from our trip....

- For our first day we had Edvin take us on a tour of the island and take us to get groceries, this was really helpful and set us up for the entire week.

-Having chefs come to the house was great, especially with the distance to town, this was a great option for us after enjoying excursions during the day. Infact our two favorite meals on the island ended up being both of the meals cooked by the chefs (and the breakfast cooked by Edvin's wife)! Chef Maria was absolutely amazing and we highly recommend having her come. We went fishing the day Maria came, and she was able to cook all the fish for us on the grill and it was SO yummy. The two sisters chefs were another good options and they really made some delicious belizian food for us to experience.

- Activities

* We did Yoga at Akbol, half day reef fishing, snorkeling, discover scuba, and Massages at the house. Honestly, I think we would do all of them again. The people who lead them were great and so was the experience. If I had to choose a favorite I would say the scuba FOR SURE, it was such an awesome experience and you didn't need any prior certification. Do NOT miss out on the massage either, I get massages regularly and this was the best 1 I've ever had & was on the dock.

- Dining

*Rain and Hidden treasures I wouldn't recomend and found both to be over rated and over priced.

* Rojo bar right down the beach had the most delcious drinks and a really fun beach bar environment, Elvi’s kitchen was our favorite meal out but our best eating experience were the two chefs and Edvin’s wife! Truck Stop is a must go to atleast for drinks and fun games (like family feud)

All in all I would rate our stay at Waters Edge a 10/10 and we will definitely be back! If your considering going, GO!!

Charming people breathtaking views! Take me back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Waters Edge in Amberegris Caye. This was not our first international Villa Rental so we were aware of some of the challenges that renting sight unseen can create. However, the folks at Sotheby's International, particularly Emma, were terrific to deal with. They were responsive to our questions and helped arrange our activities and transportation from Belize City to Ambergris and our villa.

The ocean front setting was beautiful, and the dock extending out in to the Caribbean at least 100 yards was exceptional. Three of our 4 excursions originated with a pickup by boat right off our dock! The house was very nicely finished, and had everything we could want. The kitchen is all it is advertised to be, well appointed and designed.

Perhaps the best feature of the home was the caretaker and his wife, Edvin and Natalie. They were always around to answer questions, make sure we had all that we needed, and to ensure our vacation ran smoothly. As a life long resident of Ambergris, Edvin was an excellent source of information about restaurants, shopping, wildlife, and history. We were grateful to have Edvin and Natalie on premises during our stay.

During our stay, we had three meals prepared for us in our kitchen,; Edvin and Natalie made us a delicious Belizian Breakfast our first morning, and 4 Sisters Catering and Chef Maria came to prepare meals for us. All 3 meals were authentic, fresh, and left us with food for lunch the next day! Chef Maria prepared the Snapper and Grouper we caught that day on our fishing excursion, making the meal even more of a delight!

During the week, we enjoyed massages on our dock, snorkeling, fishing, and our first introduction to Scuba. All of which were scheduled with the assistance of Emma from Sotheby's. We found everyone we met to be helpful and pleasant deal with.

As there are no cars on the Island, with the help of Sotheby's, we arranged to have a 6 person Golf Cart waiting for us when we arrived at Waters Edge. One piece of advice I would give is that not all golf carts are created equal! With 2 miles of the road into town is not being paved, a more robust cart might have been advantageous.

All in all, we consider ourselves very lucky to have found Waters Edge for our visit to Belize. We give the house, Sotheby's, and Edvin and enthusiastic thumbs up!

Luxurious, Relaxing and Worry Free Awaits

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Water’s Edge. We found everything to be as stated in the description of the property. The rental agency (Sotheby’s and Ms. Emma)was helpful from the initial inquiry. The home and grounds are well maintained and well equipped. You are close enough to town to get in and out in 20-30 minutes (via golf cart) and far enough away to enjoy your privacy. There are other homes nearby, but it was never a bother to us. We traveled with friends (total of 9) and had plenty of space. We’d all agree that our enjoyment was greatly enhanced by the hospitality provided by Edvin and Natalie. Edvin is very helpful with day to day details at the house as well as connections for fishing trips to arranging for massages. We enjoyed the Belizean dinner he and Natalie prepared for our two families. From the comforts of a local cell phone that is provided, reasonable WiFi, and cable TV to a fresh water pool, great dock to launch kayaks or get picked up by your water taxi and relaxing hammocks to take a nap or read a book. There are several beach bars and restaurants within a few minutes of the home as well as a grocery store with all the basics. We loved our stay!

We will be back but not in March due to seagrass

  • 4 of 5

This house is wonderful just like the other reviews state, however we were there the end of March and the beach had a lot of sea grass. Fault of Mother Nature! Edvin was out every day trying to remove it but the next day it seemed to have doubled! Our last day it was better and we were able to get the kayaks and paddle boards out and go to the reef to snorkel. The scuba diving in the area was also limited due to the conditions. Edvin was extremely helpful. We had Maria cook a dinner for us which was wonderful. We will be back but not in March.

Amazing and great for any group

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with 4 couples and this house has everything you would want and need. If there is anything you may ask for, Edvin and Natalie will help you find it. They greeted us on the private dock to help with luggage and made us rum punch. The kitchen was amazing to cook in, all of the beds/furniture were comfortable and the house had great AC. They also have a very nice stereo system with blue tooth so we were able to play our music from all of our devices. Edvin helped us with bikes, kayaks, paddle boards and booking a boat. We arrived the last day of lobster season and he even went completely out of his way to find us 11 lobster tails when they easily could've been some of the last few fresh ones on the island. The golf cart ride was about 15 min into town and was bumpy but completely tolerable and fun. Also close walking to a few really good restaurants. This house would be perfect for families with kids too. It's very spacious and comfortable for everyone. Our stay was fantastic and I'm very happy we chose this villa! We travel a lot and have stayed in many villas across the world and this one met all of our expectations!
