Why Tony Whitehouse chose Ambergris Caye

While all beautiful places have their individual charms, nowhere on earth has given me the same sense of a yearning to return than here at BajaMar on Ambergris, the “Isla Bonita”.

As a brief background to the house, at the end of 2007 I bought the land, five miles north of San Pedro Town, to build BajaMar as a tropical home. The intention was to enable my wife and I to escape the cold winters of Europe; that I might fly-fish the surrounding salt water flats during my retirement and the decision was made with some vague and eccentric middle aged whim of investment. While the conceptual layout of the house was mine, the fine architectural design is entirely to the credit of local architect, Sue Courtenay. The house was completed in 2010 after a prolonged and challenging construction period of some two and a half years. Every single material for the construction was brought to the site by barge.

Wonderful Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 9 adults staying at the house and we all were VERY pleased with the accommodations! When choosing this house, we had narrowed our search down to 3 homes and voted as a group. Part of the reason we choose this house was having on site staffing of Alfred & Diana. Not a mistake!! They were fabulous!! We started with a welcome dinner on the Saturday we arrived, which consisted of lobster tails, fresh fish & chicken! What a spread that tasted as good as it looked. Would highly recommend having Diana cook for your party.

We took the Tropic Ferry over from the airport as recommended - but going over we had pretty rough seas that made the trip long, cold and very choppy. Doing it again, we all would have chosen taking the plane instead. You can't depend on the weather/seas but at least flying you'd cut the commute time down to 20 minutes getting to the island.

We also went snorkeling with Seaduced By Belize (Alfred recommendation) and couldn't have been happier! Top notch company focused on customer service!! We had all levels of experience and we all felt taken care of. Never had an empty glass of rum punch or beer, and the ceviche was awesome! They even went to the effort of getting some NA beer for a member of our group!

We rented 1 golf cart for the group for a week (Alfred took care of this for us) which worked out great. Some took water taxis to town while others hopped on the cart and while in town grabbed some groceries/beer. 2 doors down from the house is a great place to eat/drink - Rojo! As a group we went twice and again, everybody was happy!

Having a house phone to take with you was icing on the cake staying at BajaMar! Alfred is the first person listed, so you're never more than a touch away from him.

It's always a little nerve racking picking a vacation home to rent, especially for a larger group of people. Don't worry a minute longer about renting BajaMar. I rely on reviews in making my decisions, so I don't write that statement lightly. Cheers!

Welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

Every aspect of the Baja mar was exceptional from the stunning sunrise to Dianie's cooking. A comfortable tropical paradise with many adventures from fishing trips to snorkeling to Caye Caulker. We experienced such warm smiles from Alfred, Jaun & Dianie & great sense of humor that made us feel at home. Alfred always impressed us with his expertise of the Island and knowledge. He is your go to guy for everything. In 9 days they accommodated us whenever in need with our 10-12 people and by the time we left all of them became family to us. We will return to Baja mar as it was perfect for our mixed group of family & friends. Also enjoyed the golf cart ride to town. it's a hoot! Highly recommend eating Dianie's cooking. Best vacation ever!

Exceptional find

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I just spent 8 days here and I must say the truth is I didn't want to come home.

The food, the folks, the fun all better than I have seen before. Alfred is the real deal his advice is sincere and honest. We went snorkeling with Noel and Genie and it was more than I expected. This place is a real find . If you come to this "Cay" this is the place to stay.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin? After months of research we decided on BajaMar for our parents 60th wedding anniversary. It was the perfect place for my siblings and parents. There were 10 of us and there was more than enough room for everyone. We used every porch everyday! Alfred and Dianie and John took care of us like family, my husband even left his cowboy hat for Alfred!! The meals Dianie cooked were great as were Alfred's recommendations of things to do. They also decorated my parents room on their anniversary night with beautiful flowers and towel art!! We stayed at the house most of the time because it was so beautiful. A short walk to the Rojo bar for lunch or a drink was perfect. The Mata Grande grocery was fun to visit too! Can't say enough about how great this trip was! We plan to come back.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

That one word sums up our whole experience! First of all, the house is amazing. We loved the kitchen and living room area as well as the 2 outdoor patios which brought everyone together for wonderful meals and company. Everyone had their own bedrooms/ bathrooms (except for one shared bathroom upstairs) which provided much needed privacy for a large group. The white sand and ocean were beautiful, and the pool was just wonderful. This was a family vacation of 3 generations, and everyone felt comfortable and relaxed. Young and old alike enjoyed the pool- in fact I would say that was our favorite family gathering place in the afternoon heat. We loved it! The property and activities were amazing, but what was the most wonderful of all were the caretakers themselves. Alfred and Dianie were amazing. We have stayed at many properties throughout the years, and have never experienced the hospitality and friendship that exists at Baja Mar. Alfred was a wealth of knowledge, and set up all of our adventures when we arrived. He truly cared and wanted to make sure our stay was the best. When we arrived the first night Dianie cooked our dinner. Once we tasted Dianie’s cooking, that was it- She cooked for us the entire week. What an amazing cook! We ate only once for lunch at a restaurant in town, and the prices were so high, and marginal food at best. I have to say, we loved every meal Dianie made. Our children still talk about the food, in fact our daughter wants Dianie’s recipe for the Raisin Chicken and Coconut Rice! Just a few notes from our experience: Remember that you are on an island, and to experience the mainland you must travel by boat or air, and by boat the trip is usually around one hour and 20 to 30 minutes. It is not close, and can be a fairly bumpy ride for guests. One more thing: don’t stress about booking all activities ahead of time. Once you are there Alfred will help you to set up your excursions. I was somewhat worried that we did not have everything set, but once we were there we had nothing to worry about. And finally, Dianie was willing to go grocery shopping before we arrived for a few essentials. We made our own breakfast and lunch at the house. When we arrived our groceries were already there. Thanks Dianie! Believe the reviews- they are spot on- if I could give more than 5 stars, I would! Enjoy your time in Belize- at BajaMar!

Wonnderful trip celebrating 40th birthday

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a FANTASTIC trip to Belize. We loved everything about the house. There were 7 adults in our party and we felt that the house was perfect for this size group. We could have privacy or hang out as a group in the large living room area. we loved having a pool to relax in after snorkling, dinner or wandering around the streets of San Pedro. Alfred and Diane mad the trip just perfect. Diane is a fantastic cook and the meals were very affordable. We had Diane prepare a Welcome meal on our day of arrival and its was fabulous. There cost of the meal was much less than if we all had traveled to a restaurant for the evening and MUCH BETTER. Alfred was johnny on the spot. He arranged all our boats to go snorkeling, to other islands, fishing, grocery delivery or just a water taxi into town. It was so convenient to have a dock where all the boats would pick us up for the day. Alfred and Diane are really top notch. THANK YOU! we will definitely return to Belize and most definitely stay at the Beautiful Bajamar house again.
