Great Place to Chill!

My wife and I just spent a week at Villa Casa Buena Vista and found it completely delightful. The owner bends over backward to ensure that your needs are met (he lives upstairs, so help is never far away if there is a problem.) Casa Buena Vista is private, with its own delightfully docile and completely charming watchdog, "Cookie," who is always availabl for a belly rub. Out front there are convenient steps leading into the water in front of the beach relaxation area. (When the water is calm, the snorkeling right off the shoreline is not bad; we saw lobsters and a moray, among other highlights.) The owner was very helpful in getting us discounts on our Belize City to Ambergris flights, and he has arrangements with several local tour operators for special pricing as well. There are several restaurants nearby, and the other couple we stayed with recommends Robin's Kitchen highly, and we heard some good reviews of The Black Orchid (also close), although we didn't have the chance to eat there. In any event, San Pedro town is not far, and we found several vey good eateries there, including Elvie's Kitchen, on Middle Street, and Fido's (pronounced Feed-Doze) on the waterfront. We also recommend the tour operator, "Seaduced," with whom we did three tours during our stay. All in all, we would highly recommend Villa Casa Buena Vista to any friend of ours who was looking for a clean, reasonably-priced, and attractive place to stay on Ambergris Caye.
Owner's Response: Thank you Stephen, Roberto, Jason, Denise and everyone else for your kind reviews. We were delighted to have had you as our guests.
Trust me, it's always good to hear that we are on a right path and we always enjoy your good reviews.
I think you can sense our pride to be able to present a charming island and the small but vibrant and town of San Pedro with the very friendly local population as an alternative to mass tourist destinations.
I do read each and every of your reviews to Mirta and Eldon; they ask me every week and I would like to mention that both are a the big part of this small paradise.
Thanks again, Wolfgang
