Two families with 5 teens found the home clean, (housekeeping was excellent) roomy and perfect. We enjoyed our stay and had a wonderful time. The staff, Rosy, Senel and Sam were very attentive to our needs(fresh linens, towels, recommendations for excursions, restaurants, etc) requests (cooler) and rare complaint (dog barking). They transported us to San Pedro whenever we asked without any problems. Secret Beach transport and experience was very nice and the food at Secret Beach that Sam suggested was delicious. We would definitely stay here again and really enjoyed Belize. Big thanks to all the staff-Highly recommend!
Outstanding house, beautiful setting, fantastic service
Sam and his team provided our family with a wonderful vacation. Every request was promptly responded to and met. I give this property and the staff my highest recommendations
We traveled with a group of 10 to Belize for my daughters 16th birthday and it was AMAZING! The house is gorgeous and the people are awesome!! Samuel and Senel are wonderful, Senel was always ready to take us back and forth and Samuel answered all my questions to make our trip very comfortable. We loved everything about this trip and can not wait to go back!
We spent 10 wonderful nights at the Casa de la Caye Villa in January 2019. Our group was comprised of 6 adults and 4 children. The kids ranged from 5 to 10 years old.
The vacation started off with Sam meeting our group at the airport with both a van and a golf cart to transport our group. We were taken to the Marina and jumped on a boat that took us across the lagoon to our villa. In order to get to and from San Pedro you have to take the boat.
You will get very acquainted with Senel who lives just moments away from the villa. He is both the boat captain and the maintenance person. He is quiet, but if you speak any Spanish you can get him to open up a bit!
The one downfall to Ambergris Caye is that there really isn’t any beaches, so a lot of time was spent in the pool for the kids. Because we were out and about a lot we didn’t spend a ton of time in the villa, but the time we did spend there the setup was perfect for us. The adult rooms were spacious, and the kids room, with the bunks, worked out great.
The villa is set up with a local cell phone that allows you to call Sam for whatever your needs are. The phone is preloaded with a certain amount of time, but we used it the entire time and never ran out of time.
There is only one restaurant near the villa, and if you visit the Coconut Cafe you won’t be disappointed. If you go into San Pedro for restaurants you have a much larger selection. I recommend lobster and shrimp pretty much anywhere!
All in all we enjoyed our stay at the villa and the people we dealt with on a daily.
Thank you Sam, Senel, and Rosie for making our stay in Belize a great one!!
This is a beautiful property!
Our group of 8 enjoyed this house very much. The set up was great for our two families of four and we all had plenty of personal space and room to spend time together, too. Samuel was extremely helpful (and patient) in helping us with our questions prior to our arrival and with arranging for our activities, including a trip to Secret Beach on New Year's Day without much advance notice. He's terrific! Senel, the boar captain for rides to and from San Paulo was always available when we needed him and often brought his son (what a cutie) along for the ride. Rose, kept the house looking great all week and was there every day making sure the house was cleaned and we had fresh towels.
We went on an ATV/Zip-lining/Cave tour arranged by Samuel and had a great time. We also did a scuba/snorkeling tour the the Blue Hole. We all enjoyed seeing it, and being able to say we swam in it, but be prepared for a long (2 1/2+ hours) and bumpy boat ride there and back if you decide to do it.
Samuel arranged for Shelley from Shelley's Cooking to be our chef two nights, including on New Year's Eve. She prepared delicious meals and it was great to come in after a long day out and have dinner ready - and smelling wonderful.
The only restaurant on the island is the Coconut Cafe, a 5 minute walk from the house. The food is great and the owners are very friendly. Just plan on plenty of time as the owner is the chef and they do not have a large staff. We had no problems with it as the view is great and we were not in a hurry, so it worked out well for our group.
If you're looking for a quiet place to unwind and relax, this is for you! Thanks, Samuel, for everyting!
A group of girlfriends and I spent six days here the last week of November. We chose the place based on the online reviews and a recommendation from someone who had stayed prior to and could not have made a better choice.
Samuel was so helpful in all aspects of the trip. From the minute we booked he was available around the clock to answer travel questions, food questions, logistical questions, etc. He picked us up from the ferry station, arranged taxis, arranged and accompanied us on an amazing snorkeling outing and arranged private chefs for a few dinners while we were there. He made the entire trip so easy and stress-free, it was well worth it.
A couple of notes in general if you have not been to Belize, or to San Pedro...1) You can get to San Pedro either by ferry or by Tropic Air from Belize City. Sam picks up in San Pedro. Our party took the ferry (2 hours including wait time and one stop on the way) to San Pedro, and we took Tropic Air back to Belize City. That's a 16 minute flight for about $90 one-way. 2) Watch out for sand fleas, recommend NOT sitting by the pool at night! 3) Take cash. Everything is cash - all tips, the chefs for the house, tips for Senel and Rosie who take care of the house and will run you back and forth to town. You can use cards at the grocery store and duty free at the airport, and at restaurants, but for any service tips, etc. it's a pretty cash-based society.
Because of its remote location, our villa offers a truly getaway destination. The villa is accessible only by boat and just a 5 minutes boat ride away from San Pedro Town. In town you can do all your shopping, there are ATM's available, a Polyclinic, fitness centers, restaurants, tour operators, dive shops, bars & more. We provide daily runs to town.
As part of our Guest Services we offer express boat shuttle ($135us/person) directly from the International Airport in Belize City to our Villa. As you get off the plane we pick you up at the airport, take a short drive, board our express shuttle and take you to Ambergris Caye where your vacation home awaits you.
