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.

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.

My family had a wonderful time at the Baja Mar. My husband and I were traveling with our 2 teenage children and 80 year old mother. Alfred and Dianie were very accomodating and took care of our every need. They were particularly helpful with my mother who needed extra attention... We also were very pleased with Dianie's meals, fabulous and recommend you trying for an evening or more.

The house itself was great, we didn't even use the air conditioners much as the ceiling fans worked well and allowed for the sea air to circulate. We were concerned there would be rain and mosquitoes, but very little on both counts. Perfect weather!

We hope to return sometime soon, the Belizian people are some of the most kind and gratious people you will ever meet.

So it's a great house directly on the beach. Five bedrooms Five baths with tons of extra.
You get Alfred and Dianie, best hosts EVER. The place is getting so popular it might be hard to get a timeslot. My suggestion would be to book it. Trust all the reviews, you can't go wrong with this home. With Alfred and Dianie as your host this is guaranteed (weather excluded) to be a great hassle free vacation in a beach front home on a unique island.
Tony the owner is so easy to work with and he makes sure to answer all you questions.
All in all BajaMar has a great team operating this home. They are honest and trust worthy and everything is straight forward. We have rented many homes via VRBO and this experience and home are at the top of our list.
When you go: Kayak to the reef and snorkel, book the all day snorkeling trip to Caye Caulker, book a half or full day reef fishing trip , catch the fish and cook them for dinner, rent a golf cart and drive into San Pedro. Eat at Mata Chica, Rojos, Protofino (for a special dinner). And don't forget Dainie's home cooking , it's the best.

Best trip ever!!

  • 5 of 5
Waters of blue, sea breezes gently blowing the palm trees, wildlife as diverse as it’s people, and the most genuine hospitality I have ever found describe the trip of a life time in Ambergris Caye (pronounced – Key). This is one not to miss, one to add to the list as they say. If you are moved by the visual power to the core of the soul, this is the place of over stimuli.
The best accommodations on the island come with the best people one can meet. Alfred and Dani Chable are absolutely perfect and the best hosts I have ever stayed with. We frequent the local rentals mainly because it is like having a home in a faraway location, but we seldom have one with onsite staff. This made the trip that much better. Alfred can tell you what to do, where to go, set it all up and make it happen. Dani is a master cook. She will whip you up a dinner or two, heck every night if you like; that you will not forget. I still crave the coconut rice. Both of them together seem more like family extended, a brother from another mother and are the most gracious hosts and hostess you will ever hope for. The house is set up perfectly. This house has three self-contained but connecting (if you desire rooms) on the ground floor with kitchenettes, opening up to the veranda and pool. The main house is on the second floor with full veranda facing the ocean, living area, kitchen, two more rooms and an outdoor kitchen on the rear of the house. It has an observation deck for sunset viewing, and back on the beach side a palapa with outdoor kitchen and serving area. You can fish off the dock if you like, and they will help you with bait and tackle if you need. Take a walk about on the beach; it is extensive in both directions. Snorkel off the dock, or take one of 4 kayaks out to a buoy snorkel there.
There are a ton of things to do on the island, or just hanging out at the house. Sitting for hours and listening to the birds, wind, palms, water and watching the tide come in or out was one of my favorite past times. The boats will come pick you up for the dives, fishing, snorkeling, sightseeing, or whatever you like right at the dock, Alfred will make it happen. I highly recommend you tell him what you want to do when you get there and not try to pre-book. One call and he does it all; even had the masseuse come to us. This was a truly memorable trip that stirred my soul deeply.

The best part of this beach house is Alfred! He was always available & made sure we got what was needed. This beach home was great and really comfortable for 9 people & you do actually feel like you have your own private beach. Thanks again for everything Alfred.
