Why Ricky Perera chose Bella Vista
I took this rental as part of my fleet because it is a beautiful 1 Bedroom apartment and I would be more than happy to have stayed or even live in an apartment like this one. The apartment is located in a safe neighborhood only 2 blocks from the sea. It is within a 5 minutes radius to restaurants, shopping, banks, supermarkets, hardware store, and both major Philip Goldson Highway and George Price Highway

A few problems
Overall a very nice place. A few problems in amenities. The range was very beat up, a pan would not sit level and the dials were so worn that you couldn't tell which was which.
Also the over sink cabinets were installed upside down making access difficult.
Very clean. Beautiful marble floors. Bath was great. A car for a few days may be required.
Grocery/Department store Brodie's was a short walk away and quite well stocked.
The rental manager was very helpful and very responsive.
This location was very convenient since there we many stores and restaurants nearby along with easy access to public transportation and car rental offices. The apartment was clear and beautiful. Ricky was a wealth of information and extremely helpful. He went far above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience in Belize. Thank you so much to you and your staff.
Good apartment but location is a bit far
This was a very cute apartment in Belize City. It was perfect for two people.
Pros: Good set up and most items were newer. Quiet apartment with a nice back yard that overlooks the water. My husband had a few good morning runs from the house along the ocean which was close by. AC machine worked quite well in the bedroom. Felt secure in this area, seemed like most residents were nice decent people. Wifi worked well for streaming Netflix
Cons: the bed was a bit on the harder side, seems like it might need to be updated soon. Location was our big disappointment. But in general it seems like Belize City hasn't quite figured out the whole tourism thing yet. We didn't rent a car and decided to do everything by foot. There is a car rental place nearby but they were advertising $90+ a day and we didn't think it was worth it. There are a few restaurants you can reach by foot-- pizza place, mediterranean food, grocery store, and restaurant inside the Best Western (which is about a 10-15 min walk away). We ended up booking a tour through the Best Western to go to the cave tubing and zip lining which ended up being less expensive than paying one of Ricky's drivers for a private driver/vehicle for the day. Mostly we just made it a staycation since there was less to do in Belize City than we thought there would be.
Of note if you are staying in Belize City and want to do touristy stuff-- there really isn't a lot. The cave tubing & ziplining was fun but it took 2/3 of a day. We went to a "tourism village" and when we got there it was closed because we chose to go on a day when a cruise ship wasn't docked. A lot of their tourism depends on when cruise ships dock FYI- so prepare. I think in retrospect Belize City was a nice place to spend a day in, maybe two tops.
Short stay in Belize
The manager, Ricky, and his staff were very nice and quickly responded to any of our needs or questions. The TV should be in the living room not the bedroom, outherwise the apartment served our basic needs for our one month stay in Belize. The washer, dryer and air conditioning worked well.
A real deal
I was truly impressed with this apartment and I would not hesitate to stay there again.
Very clean and nice.
Very clean and nice property. Great location.. not too far from the city and close to the airport. Ricky is nice and very responsive. My favorite part was sitting outside by the water listening to the birds. Total disconnect time. Will definitely stay at this property again.
We keep our unit clean to the max and I am always available for my guest. If there are special needs for any guest, I do my best to assist :)
