Guestbook comments from the owner
The Casita Buena Vista certainly met all of our expectations and more. Pictures do not do justice to the wonderful beachfront location and the perfect ocean breeze that accompanies it. The location is near enough to San Pedro to be able to take advantage of restaurants, shopping and recreation, but far enough to partake only in R&R if that is your desire. Wolfgang is a wonderful host providing every possible assistance, if needed. I would rate this an A+ and recommend it to anyone interested in a non-resort experience.

This was such a cute rental. Wolfgang was a great host and helped us and answered questions when we asked. His staff is beyond nice. I will come back and this is where I would stay again. Love!

BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Casita Beuna Vista. The guesthouse was lovely, well-appointed and spotless. The greatroom was large and cool, with many fans, and the bed was very comfortable.
Wolfgang was a gracious host, and we enjoyed our tour of San Pedro.
We also enjoyed our walks along the beach and exploring the island in the golf cart (recommended). We booked two tours with the help of Eldon, the groundskeeper, and had a great time snorkeling and visiting Mayan ruins on the mainland. We would love to return someday.

PERFECT HONEYMOON!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were married in September, but did not honeymoon until March, which gave us many cold winter months to look forward to this trip. Everything about our trip far exceeded our expectations (which were fairly high already based upon the other info we read beforehand). Of all the locations we were able to check out on Ambergris Caye, we couldn't imagine a better place to stay. We loved being slightly out of town, but very close to everything. Definitely rent a golf cart, we loved riding around, and my husband loved driving it. Each morning, we made coffee in the casita (which we drank with delicious rum crème that Wolfgang hooked us up with during our tour!), and snorkeled for several hours. We would then venture downtown for lunch, before more water activities in the afternoon. We did several tours through Suya next door, and thought they were exceptionally well-arranged, and worth what we paid. We went to Lamanaii, and took a catamaran to snorkel at Hol Chan and Shark Ray. We liked Hol Chan much more than Shark Ray, and almost went back a different day. We did not have a bad meal anywhere--we tried many of the places Wolfgang recommended, and also stopped in a few we found on our own. The mojitos everywhere were amazing as well. Get ceviche everywhere---best I've ever had!! In addition to all of this, we could not have asked for better hosts. Wolfgang, Eldon, and Mirta were available to help with virtually anything at any time (even helping us to arrange our tours, and make sure the boats were coming to pick us up on time), but also had a knack for seeming to disappear when we desired a quiet nap or drink under the coconut tree. What a great balance! I unfortunately lost my luggage for several days, and Wolfgang went above and beyond to help us try to track it down, giving up his time (long wait times on the phone!) and allowing us to use his phone to check for updates..so gracious. The casita is also beautiful inside--not that we spent a lot of time inside! We cannot wait to return, and, in fact, have rebooked already, and are bringing family to enjoy this paradise with us next year.

GREAT RETURN VISIT

  • 5 of 5
This was my second time at Casita Buena Vista. Since my stay 4 years ago, many improvements were made especially in the bathroom. The same two great staff workers, Eldon and Mirta, as well as everyone's vacation dog Cookie, are still present making it a nice welome back. The owner Wolfgang makes sure his guests are happy and comfortable. Buena Vista is a great, quiet vacation spot not far from town. I would highly recommend Buena Vista as a place to stay on the Caye.

LOVELY, QUIET AND TRANQUIL.

  • 5 of 5
Great spot. Gracious host. Groundskeeper and housecleaner are wonderful. Not much view in casita but the beach is right out your door. Only frustration is the wireless is not good in the casita. Stayed three weeks and really slowed down. The people everywhere were genuinely warm and welcoming.

AMAZING HONEYMOON - 10 STARS - SERIOUSLY!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Since we've been home we've been trying to think what to say for this review - we can only speak of the Casa, Casita, our host, the dogs, Eldon & Mirta, the beach, San Pedro, our tour, and all of Belize in non-descriptive superlatives - amazing, unbelievable (unbelizeable?), indescribable, awesome! We know that's not very helpful, so we ask that you trust us. We could not have picked a better place to celebrate our honeymoon!

We spent several nights in the Casa as well as the Casita, and both are clean, well-maintained, well-appointed, and luxurious. We cooked many meals for ourselves in the kitchens that were enjoyed on the terrace overlooking the Caribbean while staying at the Casa and the screened-in porch with a sea view at the Casita. The beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms and closets are of ample size and feel very upscale. The Casa has the benefit of the sea breeze coming through the windows facing the ocean, so it stays quite cool - we never had to turn on the AC. The Casita, being shielded by the Casa, is a little hotter, but the abundant fans and AC kept us cool.

The beach is great, the best in the area! We used the steps and the public dock to access the water. Great swimming, and clear water! Eldon and his helpers keep the beach and water very clean! We saw stingrays jumping and a dolphin(!) from the beach, as well as lots of cool birds (alas, no toucans).

Wolfgang was a great host, both before and during our vacation. He helped us book airfare through Maya Air and our golf cart from Carts Belize at a discount. His tour of San Pedro was invaluable. Afterwards, we were able to jump right in and go to the best places. He introduced us to Maria's fruit stand (home of THE juice), Neri's tacos (many mini tacos, we called them), the tortilla factory, the fish guy, Marin's grocery store, the coffee & rum house, the Blue Water Grill - great sushi on Tuesday - and the Pupuseria, home of THE lobster burrito (which is totally worth it)! Wolfgang, Eldon, and Mirta were always available to assist us and give us advice. We booked the all-day beach BBQ and snorkeling trip with Suya and had the best time - we'd highly recommend it! We also visited the Marco Gonzalez Maya site, which was excellent and a taste of the jungle on the Caye. We spent the rest of our time exploring town and relaxing on the beach, often with Cookie by our sides and Tiga watching us from above! We cannot wait to go back! Thank you Wolfgang, Eldon, Mirta, Tiga and Cookie!
