DESIGNER LUXURY OCEANFRONT HOME

Ambergris Caye House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 2-7)

You are invited to discover a true island paradise. Casa Rana is a designer luxury home that is the perfect place for your Caribbean adventure. Located 20 minutes north of San Pedro in the exclusive Mexico Rocks area you will awaken in your pillow top beds to amazing sunrises. Your choices each day ranges from doing absolutely nothing to fun experiences on the island or the mainland.

Utilizing the principles of Feng Shui, our intention was to build the most beautiful home on the island, a place that would be in harmony with nature, a place of spirituality, and a place where one could nourish the soul. Our guests have confirmed that we accomplished our goal; Casa Rana has become the Number One luxury rental home destination in Belize. Please read the guest comments below; or Google us; the comments say it all.

Day trips Include visiting mayan ruins, cave tubing, zip-lining, bird watching, spa treatments, diving, snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, and much more.

The Unique Benefits at this House: Our home includes spacious rooms and exquisite furnishings, in addition to unobstructed views of the Caribbean. Casa Rana is a living-breathing piece of art, dancing with energy twenty four hours a day. At night the unique lighting transforms the home into another dimension. Bring your family and friends and share with us a most memorable bare foot vacation. Also, please check out our main website www.casaranabelize.com

The Unique Benefits at this House: Staying in a stunning 4,000 square foot luxury home with its own private beach, plunge pool ( 10' x 14'), and dock, is an extraordinary experience very few people ever get a chance to do.. Just observing the water, the sky and the sea will occupy hours of your time. The power of nature is here in its full glory.

Why the Owner Chose San Pedro: Belize is a land of many different cultures living in an unusually harmonious way. English is the official language and the country is governed according to English Law. It is a land of astounding beauty, and one of the last parts of the Caribbean to be fully explored. We were mesmerized with the beauty of the Caribbean water, the sky and the island of Ambergris Caye. This was a place where we knew we wanted to be. Our varied backgrounds includes (among other professions) design and building, and we wanted to build a home that was a 'work of art and spirituality', to be shared with all who chose to visit.

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 26, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
This was an amazing spring break for our family with the perfect combination of relaxation and activity. The island, nearby reef, sunrise, and night sky were absolutely gorgeous. The home and property were beautiful and thoughtfully designed with everything we needed. The photos really reflect how the property looked and the feeling there was completely welcoming and relaxing. Light housekeeping was done daily and Omar kept the beach raked, carried kayaks down to the water, and brought us coconut water to drink.
Richard helped us arrange a day of fishing, a catamaran outing with guided snorkeling, an outdoor massage on the second floor veranda, and an adventure to the Lamanai Mayan Ruins.
We also really enjoyed grilling the snapper we caught, kayaking to Mexico rocks for snorkeling, reading in the hammock and under the palapa, morning yoga on the front veranda, and watching the latest movie releases in the evenings.
Richard and Diana were close by in a small house at the back of the property to make sure everything went smoothly. We felt independent, but they were always available if we had a question. Richard and Diana were expert at helping us create the perfect vacation for our family! We would definitely recommend this house to our friends.

SIMPLY AMAZING FROM START TO FINISH!!

Where do I begin? The owners, Rich & Diana, were so easy to deal with and answered every question promptly and honestly from the first inquiry to the day we left. The property/home is GORGEOUS! True paradise. The pictures and descriptions are accurate and truly amazing in person. From the private pier and palapa to the fully stocked and expertly furnished home, this place does not disappoint. The property is located on a beautiful, private seaside beachfront and landscaped with paradise in mind. It was a 1.5 hour boat ride from the airport in Belize City (Tropic Ferry picks you up at the airport, transports you to the marina then drops you off right at your private dock at Casa Rana). The main town, San Pedro (located on Ambergis Caye), is a 5-10 minute boat ride which can be gotten to by water taxi or Rich & Diana will take you into town. If relaxation, peace & quiet and stunning ocean views are what you crave, then this property is for you. We ordered food/drink online from the local market to stock essentials for our week long trip. The food came and was put away by the time we arrived. Rich & Diana were so helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. They recommended many outings and set up all travel issues by boat while on the island. They have their own boat which took us into town for diving and other excursions. They set us up with an excellent half day fishing trip which we caught many black snapper and dined on the filets for the next few days. They also recommended an outstanding day trip on a private catamaran (El Gato) for our family of four. The crew was so friendly. We snorkled a few awesome sites and went to a small local island to dine and explore local fare. The scuba diving off the island was incredible and the kids just loved taking the 2 person kayak for a short row to a spot called Mexico Rocks (right in front of property) to some of the finest snorkeling ever. They saw nurse sharks, moray eels, octopus, stingrays, eagle rays and so much more. Wow! A few local restaurants are within walking distance down the beach and other restaurants will pick you up at the dock for no charge. Rich & Diana have a small home in the back of the property along with their handyman, Omar. They made sure to be unseen so we could enjoy our vacation but available when needed. Light housekeeping and laundry service were an added touch. An A+++ to the owners and the property at Casa Rana.

Casa Rana Christmas

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 3, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
We spent a magical week at Casa Rana celebrating Christmas with our family. This beautiful home exceeded every expectation, as did its owners, Diana and Richard. We enjoyed all of the amenities the home offers, from the relaxing patio, breathtaking views, comfortable living areas and well appointed kitchen and sleeping rooms. We cannot say enough about the hospitality of Richard and Diana who went above and beyond to make our stay so enjoyable.

While visiting Ambergris Caye we enjoyed snorkeling, kayaking out to the reef, dining at Portofino and Rojo, exploring San Pedro and relaxing in a tropical paradise that is Casa Rana. This property provided an exceptional opportunity for everyone in our family to have a relaxing and enjoyable day whether lounging by the pool or snorkeling off the pier. We suggest utilizing Diana and Richard for recommendations on excursions and restaurants because of their knowledge of the island and impeccable taste.

Our stay at Casa Rana made for a very memorable and special Christmas.

This is the first review I have ever felt I had to complete to tell the rest of you about this great place. From the first email enquiring about availability Richard and Diana were amazing, nothing was too much trouble and they were kind and generous hosts. When we arrived at their personal quay they were there to greet us as was Hydro their lovely dog who we loved. Casa Rana is amazing, everything has been thought through and it really is a home away from home without the hassle and noise! If you are looking for a relaxing stay in paradise we can thoroughly recommend Casa Rana. Thank you Richard and Diana (and Hydro) for making our stay so very special.
