Wow!!! The location of this house is incredible - on the most beautiful blue, clear water. The beach in front of the house was a pleasant surprise, as we had not expected a beach. My youngest had a blast playing on the beach and in the shallow waters adjacent.
The caretaker, Ernesto, and his family were very respectful of our space. Because we had children of similar ages, our kids played with Ernesto's, but they did not intrude on our space or time without being invited. Samantha, Ermesto's wife, prepared our first night's meal, which I highly recommend. She is an amazing cook and it was perfect as we had been travelling all day. She also taught us how to make homemade tortillas one day, which was such a treat.
Ernesto is a licensed guide and customized some excursions for our family. Initially, I thought his prices were expensive, but they are comparable to other guides. Definitely use him - always on time and where he said he would be.
The house was well-equipped with towels and all the kitchen stuff. They also provided toilet paper and paper towels. There is also a cupboard where previous renters left supplies - we did the same.
Wes was very helpful in the planning process. Made the trip easy. One more thing - splurge and take the plane from Belize City to San Pedro. Soooo much better than our experience with the ferry (crowded and hot).
Enjoy! The Belizian people are very friendl and not pushy. Can't wait to go back :)
