AMBERGRIS CAYE OCEANFRONT TWO BEDROOM CONDO @ OASIS RESORT

Ambergris Caye Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our first level two bedroom oceanfront condominium at Oasis Del Caribe in the Boca Del Rio area of San Pedro is a true Caribbean paradise. You can sit out on the veranda with an ice cold Belikin, relax and watch the sail boats go by or count the waves crashing on the reef, just a quarter mile off shore.

The condo is located in a picture perfect neighborhood comprised with an eclectic mix of local, visitors and small businesses. Rush hour is before and after school where the sand street is filled with children's laughter. Dive and fishing shops dot the beach, fun restaurants and a great bakery are a few steps away. Shops are very close by to restock your fridge!

Don't miss the lady who sells chicken puff pastries and the famous 'Hot Tamales! She passes by in the afternoon, aka, snack time.

A lazy 10 minutes stroll along the beach brings you to San Pedro Town. Art galleries, fun beachfront pubs, restaurants and hand made crafts can be sought out. San Pedro is a hoot, you'll sure to make lifelong friends with one of our locals hanging out in their favorite 'rum shop'.

Our condo is about 900 square feet with 2 good sized bedrooms (both with Queen Beds) and 1 bathroom. The Living area is large and open plan and our deck wraps around the lounge area. The futon makes room for some kids. Our condo is tastefully decorated with all the comforts of home including microwave, television, cable, phone, ceiling fans throughout and full air conditioning. Housekeeping available at additional cost.

We also have a nice sized pool and patio area with lounge chairs perfect for relaxing and reading a good book. If you plan to do some diving or snorkeling, the operators will pick you up at our dock.

Oasis can make a fun vacation, spectacular.

Please inquire about an upgrade.

Good trip

Very clean condo and everything worked. Decor is outdated, but we were not in the condo that much anyway.

Great Location in San Pedro

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I stayed at this property from January 11, 2014 to February 7, 2014.
Correspondence between ourselves and the owner, Lisa, was well managed and the booking and payment process went without incident. When I wrote back to change our arrival/departure date by one week the changed was managed by email without issue.

Prior to arrival Lisa had the rental manager, Christinia contact us who followed up on our arrival time and identified if we needed transportation to the unit. If you do need a taxi, they will arrange this for your arrival/departure times.

The unit is as described and the photographs are accurate. The view out the front is lovely and there is a constant breeze coming off the water. The unit was clean and there are plenty of towels including beach towels. The air conditioning works very well. The tv has plenty of channels including a good selection of movie channels. The kitchen could have been better stocked in terms of pots and pans, as we had to borrow a kettle, buy a small frypan, and the rental manager purchased a small pot that was needed. But overall everything you need is there now. The bedrooms are a good size and both have ceiling fans and ac outlets. The beds, like all the furniture, is solid Belizian hardwood and if not super soft (no pillowtop mattresses), the beds were comfortable.

The livingroom futon is not that comfortable, it's a slide out futon type, designed to be another bed. I would only recommend this as a bed for a small child, otherwise their weight would have them feeling the wooden slats.

The water in San Pedro is drinkable (potable) but most people buy water for drinking. The water has a slight saline taste and has a high mineral content, but I used it for the month to make morning coffee and had no problems. This was our second visit to San Pedro and we never had an issue with the water.

The unit's communial pool is very nice, well designed with steps leading from shallow to deeper water, and a small water fall at the deep end. The pool is cleaned daily and there is a selection of chairs and loungers, with padding, to sit in.

Given the unit only has one bathroom it would be better suited to a family or a couple. We would recommend the unit and would certainly go back to the Oasis del Caribe as the unit is only a 10-15 walk along the beach to the centre of San Pedro. The local area is well served by shops/bars/restaurants and dive shops.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Great location - lovely view!

  • 4 of 5
Our family of four stayed in this condo for a week over Spring Break 2013. Everything was great from the time we inquired until the time we checked out. Sari was always so responsive and helpful in answering all of our questions. When we arrived, Jesus the taxi driver was waiting for us just as promised. He showed us a little of the town and stopped by a local grocery store before taking us to the condo. The condo was very comfortable. The best part is the view out that front door! Right across the street is Action Divers and we used them to do two snorkeling adventures - talk to Erica if you go - she's super helpful and accomodating. Everything was within walking distance. Another great place is Wayo's Beachside Beernet just a few steps to the right of the condo. The owner and all of the bartenders are so friendly and be sure to take advantage of their happy hour - two for one rum punch that is very yummy! This was a vacation we'll never forget and we are already trying to plan our dates for 2014!

Lives Up to the Ad!

  • 4 of 5
We rented the condo for New Year's week, and it was as cute as it looked. Nicely furnished, with a well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and excellent TV and WiFi service, which proved to be very valuable when my husband fell ill and wanted to stay inside one day. The pool is cold and refreshing after you bake in the sun for a while, and overall, it lived up to our expectations.

With just a few inexpensive changes, though, it could move up from good to excellent.

First, it would be really nice to supply arriving guests with a jug or two of water in the fridge. After a 12-hour travel day, we arrived exhausted and thirsty in the evening. But the tap water isn't safe to drink, so we had to go buy bottled water before we could do anything else. It would only cost a couple bucks, and I guarantee you it would mean a lot to late-arriving guests.

Second, the back bedroom door needs to be taken off the hinges and planed. It creaks loudly when you open or close it, a real annoyance for someone who gets up several times a night to use the bathroom.

Third, it would have been really nice to have beach chairs that we could have taken across the street when we didn't want to sit at the pool.

But overall, it was a great unit, and we enjoyed our stay there.

However, BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU RENT GOLF CARTS! We did not rent from the condo manager, as we probably should have, and ended up being victimized by scam artists who operate out of a small store right around the corner from the Oasis.

The last day of our stay, we awoke to find the golf cart had been stolen. We reported it to the store operator, who rents as Captain G's Rentals, and to the police. We were assured it happens all the time and they knew where to look.

However, at 6 p.m. on Friday night, less than 18 hours before our departure, the store owner, some relatives and a police officer committed nothing less than a shake-down against us, trying to force us to pay $15,000 to replace the cart and implying we'd be unable to leave the island if we didn't.

The experience involved intimidation and forced us to fork over $5,000 just so we could get out of the country. Unfortunately, it soured us on the idea of ever returning to Belize. This was our second visit, but clearly the explosion of growth in the past seven years has also meant a growth in con artists.

San Pedro is a great destination, but after what we endured that last night, we won't be back.

Owner's Response: Suppling water for guests is a great idea. Thanks for the suggestion. We will also be placing specific reccomendations for reliable businesses in the condo. Our rental agent can advise in advance any rentals or excursions. Jesus, the driver, and Christina, the local manager, also are a good sources of information. Christina's number is in the condo for our guests to call if they have any problems or concerns. We have been coming to Belize for over 20 years and never experienced anything like that. Sorry for your experience.

CONDO IS GREAT--AREA IS NOT

  • 5 of 5
Condo itself is beautiful & sparkling clean, stays cool & sitting on the porch watching the ocean was delightful as we contemplated our snowy winter back home..Christina was wonderful coming to the rescue when Tropic Air did not show our prepaid flight reservations although booking agent Sari thru SS Solutions said she had made them..We had to pay again & got the refund credited to our card after more than 1 request.The neighborhood around the condo was not the "PicturePerfect" area as described I expected. The condo is the only nice looking place in this area..but even the town itself pretty poverty stricken. You can go to a resort for a better version of a beach but the sea grass was even too thick there for us to feel comfortable walking in..we saw 2 big stingrays resting there..locals were friendlly and we enjoyed some great meals, the bakery was wonderful but the area is just too 3rd world..go on You Tube and look around..I wish I had .Cant beat the view tho..description of PICTURE PERFECT should describe the ocean view only..5 stars for the property
