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.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
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.

Alfred!

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.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5
I don't know how much more I can add to other reviews. The house was better than it appears in the pictures. The layout of the house was perfect for our family of 6 which included my husband and I, our daughter and her husband and two teenage grandchildren. My husband and I took the upstairs with the living area and the kitchen and my daughter and her family took the downstairs. The downstairs was perfect for them. They could open the inside doors and have one big area or close them and have private time. The outside spaces were perfect for relaxing. I can NOT say enough nice things about Alfred and Dianie!!!! Alfred treated the place like his own. He took care of everything. We had Dianie cook for us almost then whole time. We did go out 2 times but the food was not as good as what we had at the house. We are not picky eaters, so we visited with Dianie about her menus, told her what we would like to try and told her just to prepare as she wanted for breakfast and dinner. She also fixed cerviche so my granddaughter could taste it. We were so happy with it all! Alfred helped us with different arrangements including renting golf carts for two days so we could go to town. We didn't care for the water taxi experience very well. We read lots of other reviews so we took water shoes to play in the ocean. Grandkids snorkeled from the shore, walked the beach to pick up shells, used the kayak, loved the pool. You can walk for miles along the beach, there are a couple of bars and eating places within walking distance and the store is about a 5 minute walk. There are other places along the beaches close by the vegetation along the property lines give you privacy. They views from the balcony are priceless. We loved having Po (the dog) around. He is so well behaved and such a sweet little dog. Thank you Anthony for sharing your house and thank you Alfred and Dianie for making our experience so enjoyable.

Great house, friendly people

  • 5 of 5
The week was fantastic. It started with the owner, Tony and the live in care keepers (Alfred & Dianie) They were quick to contact me with helpful information, which made our first trip to Belize easy. The house is perfect for a group of ten people, just the right size so you are not stepping on each other. Alfred and Dianie are the best, they can set up everything for you, from dinner reservations, home cooked meals to catamaran trips. I suggest using Tropic Ferry for the trip from the mainland to the private dock. The house is beautiful, the people of Belize, friendly and welcoming.

Had the best time at BajaMar! What a great location, as well as the Villa. Alfred & Diani made us feel welcome. Alfred took care of all our needs. Diani is a great cook! Plan on having her cook as many meals as you can.It would be hard to find fault with anything at the Villa. I hope go back some day. The Belizian people are very welcoming, & ready to help any way they can.
