Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved our 5 nightws @ Miss Ellas. What a charming little house off the beaten path. Our favorite thing about Ellas was the rooftop porch. Every night after dinner we would stop by the store for a few Belikins, go upstairs and enjoy the view and the cool nightime breeze.

Love Dogs (Miss Ella is our 13 yr old Golden Retriever), Travel, Reading, Music, laughter with friends, and good times.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

We have been coming to Caulker since 1999 and fell in love with the small island, warm people, tropical breezes, and slow, relaxing atmosphere. It just felt right. It's close to great fishing, snorkeling, diving, and mainland excursions.

AM ritual: Morning coffee on the upper viranda, watching the local birds and pelicans dive for bait -waiting to see what the day brings.

PM ritual: Coctails on the upper viranda, watching the sunset, sailboats, and the local birds..waiting for the twinkling stars to appear.

Just OK

  • 3 of 5
Highlights of the place are the kitchen and the rooftop porch that overlooks the water. Great place for watching the sunsets (although a little table or foot rest would have made it even better). They also include potable water in a 5 gallon jug for you to use which was very nice. Caye Accomidations picked us up from the water taxi and took us to the place. It is a little bit off the beaten path so it is quieter than the Main Street but makes for a bit of a walk to get into town (especially if you want to spend time near the split). It is also located in more of a local residential neighborhood. Overall, a clean place and the owner and management company were both very responsive.

The primary con of the place and the main reason for the Average review is that the bed was very uncomfortable and you could feel the springs in your back. Also, the shower is quite small and the bathroom had a peculiar smell. The entrance to the place is not well maintained and somewhat over grown. We say all of this having stayed at 3 other places in this price range during our trip throughout Belize. It also would have also been nice to have access to a couple bikes to allow you to quickly go into town, check out the island, or get groceries. Many other places on the island offer this perk.

Owner's Response: Sorry Erin, didn't realize the mattress was an issue. We have ordered a new one, based on your feedback. The lane that may be overgrown is the city property, well ask them again to keep it cleaned...thank for your feedback, it helps us know what is important to the guests.

Such a charming place! We liked the fact that it was in the middle of a neighborhood and away from the touristy main road (as much as one can describe Caye Caulker as touristy, anyway!). We rented a golf cart for the week from the place behind us, and it made fetching groceries and beer much easier. We didn't have a problem with neighborhood dogs barking, but that's possibly because we have them at home, too. The one rain storm we had was really fun to listen to on the roof, and the occasional bird up there was amusing, not annoying. Great kitchen to cook up some of our own meals (and boy, the wi-fi sure helps you to look up good recipes for conch!). Very cozy place - we even spent one whole day "in" as it was cloudy and windy. We can't wait to come back to Miss Ella's - next time it will be for two weeks instead of one!!!

This is a nice cottage, well equipped, comfortable to live in. We enjoyed the roof-top balcony during morning coffee breaks and especially at sunsets. At times, barking neighborhood dogs at night were really annoying.

Cute and cozy

What a wondeful little house! Miss Ella's was truly a gem that we feel so lucky we got to stay in. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The roof deck was the highlight of our stay, we enjoyed our morning coffee there everyday as well as a belekin in the evening while stargazing. The house is cozy and inviting and we would recommend anyone to stay there!!

Sweet Spot & Great Managment

Sweet Spot & Great Managment
  • 4 of 5
This was a great spot to start our Belize Vacation. Bobbi, Hattie and staff did a great job of communitating with us prior to our stay & arranging Taxi & Cab rides from the airport in Belize City to the Ferry in Caye Caulker and to and from Miss Ellas. They also got us bikes, which we loved!! They were very accommodating and helpful when our plans changed and we had to stay an extra day. Miss Ellas was a sweet very clean Cabena off the beaten path, a short bike ride from town. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook some of our meals & blend rum drinks, we loved the hard wood bar. The living room had games, a desk and an AC unit but the louver windows let the breeze through the house. the two porches were great spots to relax and watch the sunsets. Especially the upper deck. The wind and rain came while we were there, and it was amazing to hear rain on the tin roof. The bed was a little lumpy, but it turned out to be OK.
The one negative thing is the noise from the neighboring areas. There is a golf cart rental spot next door and we heard him power washing the carts pretty much the whole time. Now, we don't travel to expect quiet and perfect peace, locals have to make a living! We do travel with a little speaker system and an Ipod/iphone so we can listen to music and drown out any ambient noise, during sleeping hours we used white noise, turned up really loud because there were dogs barking. There is no direct access to the water front but the view to the west was very cool. We would recommend this spot! Thank you!

We found this place cute and comfortable with a great sunset view every night. We didn't use the air conditioning as the ceiling fans and floor fan sufficed. We were met at the Belize Int. airport by a taxi and taken to the water taxi. Then we were met in Caye Caulker and taken to the cabin in a golf cart. I walked from the house to town near the water taxi in about 10 minutes. You can take the water taxi to Ambergris (San Pedro) and rent a golf cart to take a tour of that busy island, and all the snorkeling and diving tours can be taken from laid back Caye Caulker.
We rented bikes (at around $50 B per week) and everything seemed close and a lot cooler getting around. Our snorkel stuff fit in the bike baskets and made the trip to the beach and surrounding swimming docks a breeze. We even rode around after dinner at night to enjoy the cooler air.
In the neighborhood is Little Kitchen, a small restaurant with an ocean view, which has some of the best food on the island and costs less than most.
This house is not near nightclub noise, but you might want to bring earphones because of the barking dogs, yowling cats, and rooster in the AM, and lizard, bird and wind noise on the tin roof.
If you want towels for snorkeling or swimming, don't forget to bring your own.
