Ambergris Caye Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

No matter what you do, relaxing at one of five swimming pools while enjoying a drink at the swim-up bar or taking an all day adventure to the most spectacular Barrier Reef snorkeling and scuba sites in the Northern Hemisphere, there is nothing like relaxing in a luxurious 2 bedroom, 2 bath, central air conditioned condo with a balcony overlooking the sandy white beach and the blue waters of the Caribbean. The condo is complete with a gourmet kitchen fully equipped with everything you need to prepare a dinner of delicacies. Each bath has a walk-in shower. The master bath has a Jacuzzi tub as well. There are 3 flat screen TV's with satellite programming. One is in each bedroom and one is in the living room. Wireless internet access available at no charge. Quality bed linens, pillows and coverlets are provided. The furniture and art work, created in Belize, reflect the traditions of the tropics. Canterra tile floors provide a cool and relaxing atmosphere along with mahogany cabinetry and ceiling fans.

The location surpasses all others. It is a short golf cart ride to the charming fishing village of San Pedro and walking distance to many excellent restaurants and bars.

To give you a more complete description I have included a Welcome message that guests find in the casita to guide them on their way to a 'Luxurious Adventure'.

Welcome to Mr Jay’s Casa de Belize

Upon arrival you will be greeted at the front desk by friendly staff that will be taking care of all your needs during your stay at the Grand Caribe. While you are there, make a reservation for the onsite restaurant “Rain” for early cocktails and dinner for that night. You will find excellent food and great ambiance at this roof top, 4th floor restaurant and terrace. Hugo and Victoria, formerly with Ahi Restaurant now own and manage “Rain”.

In the morning have breakfast at Ak-Bol, a yoga retreat. Make it there before 11AM to get a good seat at the bar looking out to the sea. You will find this “Cheers” kind of place about 200 yards to the south (REMEMBER LEFT FOOT IN THE WATER, YOU ARE GOING SOUTH, RIGHT FOOT IN THE WATER YOU ARE GOING NORTH). Say hi to Melio, the owner, originally from Chicago. Favorite delights: start with a Belican beer and I suggest you have a couple of salbutes or puposas (chicken, beef or fish). This and a little Maria’s hot sauce and you will be ready for whatever the day has to offer. You also may want to try their Fry Jacks with a fresh tropical fruit plate, most delicious. Morning and afternoon Yoga classes are available for a small fee. One and a half hour full body massage in their upstairs grass hut is highly recommended. You can ask Melio when you are at Ak-Bol to make a reservation.

Walking back, stop by the front office and ask to see their book of activities. You can book with the Grand Caribe tour director for many exciting experiences, including the Lamanai Jungle River Cruise and Mayan Ruins excursion. Want to relax? Spend some time at the swim-up pool bar and café serving tropical drinks and local fare. Happy Hour is from 3:00 to 5:00. If you go fishing you can bring back your catch and have them prepare it or take it to Akbol to make a feast for you. Water taxis are readily available for transportation North and South. The dock attendant will help you hail one down.

Golf carts are available for rent through Grand Caribe. Dial 0 for the front desk to make a reservation. They have carts available at the resort. You can rent for the day or by the hour if you need a quick trip to town. Carts are a good way to explore the fishing village of San Pedro. It is a charming Caribbean town with good shopping, grocery stores and plenty of bars and restaurants. There is a $10 US round trip toll to cross the bridge into San Pedro. Stop by Fido’s for a drink and I’m told it’s a great place in the evening to see and be seen in town. Also the Blue Water Grill near the airport is on the beach and serves very good local fare. You might want to explore the beautiful resort of Victoria House just a little south of San Pedro.

Other Restaurants To Try:

Palapas, about ¼ mile to the south. It is a thatched roof bar and restaurant. You’ll see a big neon sign that says BAR. Good place to hang out and feel the sway of the sea while enjoying good food and drinks. Ask the bartender for markers to add your name to the rungs of the railings. Tell them Mr. Jay sent you and ask for a “Lou” burger”, a specialty created by Lou Gentine of Sargento Cheese Company of Plymouth, Wisconsin. We were all together when Lou concocted this most unusual burger and it has now made its way as a permanent item on the menu.

Capricorn – high end restaurant comes with good recommendations. It is about a mile North, on the beach. Call them at 226-2809 for reservations. You can take a water taxi or walk there along the water.

Ahi Restaurant is just a little north of the Grand Caribe. Take the road or beach path. Lovely outdoor restaurant on the water. Quaint and romantic.

A must do, Sunday Funday at Crazy Canuks, just south of the airport. Live local talent starts playing around 3PM great fun afternoon.

Some things to know:

Wireless Internet service is available at no charge.

The paintings in the Condo were purchased at Belize Arts which is located on the city map (E4) located next doorway north of Catholic church, east side of front street, next to Fido’s Bar & Restaurant. Introduce yourself to Lindsey, the owner, she is from England. This is a wonderful art gallery and gift shop. You will certainly find some treasure there to take home.

Belize exchange rate - $2 BLZ to $1 US. ATM’s are available at Banks in San Pedro.

To retrieve your messages on the telephone dial 737 use code 1900. Press P for play and D for discard.

Call front desk to make arrangements for passage to the airport.

Don’t forget to add your memories and recommendations to the guest book on the counter. There are many excellent reviews of excursions and restaurants from our guests. Pay particular attention to an extensive comment written on August 9th, 2013. Here he mentions a Dr Daniel Gonzales at 23 Pescador Dr. telephone number 501-226-2660 for medical issues.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had an excellent vacation mainly due to the beautiful condo. It is very well appointed and we lacked nothing. The Grand Caribe is a first class destination with helpful staff that cares to please. Every request was met with a smile. The condo is very well appointed with beautiful finishes. It was a pleasure to stay there and I hope we can go again in the near future. I highly recommend this condo and Grand Caribe.

Another Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was not our first staying at Jay's condo and we really hope it's our not our last. We truly love this place as a vacation getaway. It's almost impossible not to let go and relax and have fun. The almost part is due to Wifi in the condo that will allow you to stay connected, if you want to.
The condo is first class and very comfortable to spend time in. A view that hard to beat right on beach. The kitchen is loaded with top notch appliances and everything you need to cook, but since we're on vacation the most we used was the coffee maker and toaster.
We let them know ahead of time we wanted to rent a golf cart for the week and the front desk took care of it and it was there waiting for us when get there. Renting a golf cart is a great way to go and explore the island and go into town. Although hanging out at 1 of the many pools or a chair on the beach all day is tempting, there are some really great restaurants, little shops, street food and bars on the beach to hang out at if you go into town. The people on the island are so friendly and welcoming. We really enjoy hanging out and talking with local residents and have learned a lot about the local culture and people. You can also catch a water taxi on the pier that will take you up & down the island. We wanted to rent bikes one day to ride along the beach into town and asked the front desk. The front desk suggested a place a 4 min walk north on the beach. It turned out to be a local resident that rented bikes out for $5 for half day, $10 for a full 24 hrs. Hard to beat that. We had a great ride into town and along the beach road. There are plenty of places along the beach either north or south to stop in for a cool refreshment.
The front desk can arrange many different activities and adventures for you.
At the end of a busy day, relaxing at the pool bar is a great wind down. A walk down the pier or sitting by the pool enjoying the breeze rustling the coconut palms and star gazing is also a nice romantic way to end a day.
Overall, this condo is an excellent choice. The porch is feet from the sea and the view is fantastic. First class all the way and very accommodating. Whether you are adventure seeker or want to relax in luxury, this is the place to be. The people at the resort and the front desk are extremely responsive to whatever you need and go out of their way to assist or provide whatever you need.
Thank you Jay for allowing us to enjoy your piece of paradise.

The condo was beautiful! It was very clean and in excellent condition. Perfect for 2 couples with the 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. So many eating places and things to do in walking distance. The views were spectacular!! Right on the beach with a great ocean view. Top notch resort. Rent a golf cart to see the town. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting a week to relax and enjoy the quiet.

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5
We spent our honeymoon at this condo and it was absolutely incredible! The condo was immaculate with everything you could need. Very comfortable beds and sofa with a patio steps from the ocean. It was a true paradise looking out the window to an amazing sunrise over looking the dock. We received excellent recommendations of activities and restaurants from Joe that kept us busy for the week. It was very tough leaving and we plan to come back very soon.

Lost in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We have had the pleasure of staying here 3 times. The property is beyond expectations and the staff at the Grande Caribe are the best. The local restaurants and bars are some of the best ever. Plan on a very relaxing time , reading , walking on the beach and nice sunset dinners at the open air restaurants nearby. Be sure to go into town and experience the beach bars, shopping and local attractions. Don't even think about dressing up, a T-shirt and cargo shorts is all you need. I enjoyed the fishing and the snorkeling , but the sunset cruise is a must. Give it a try! You will not be sorry.
