Best Vacation Ever!
Submitted: February 4, 2013

This home is gorgeous with amazing views and a private beach-front setting. The neighbouring villagers were incredibly welcoming and kind - so great that almost everyone speaks English which really made it easy to connect and learn the culture and find help getting around.
Everything we needed was right in the village and the home's kitchen is deluxe. Also, trucks with fresh vegetables, seafood and baking came around regularly so we did a lot of our own cooking (and drinking) for cheap! The beach is amazing and the water warm with only sand and shells under our feet.
Had an amazing fishing trip out to an enchanting little caye where we snorkelled while our guides grilled our catch along with a couple of fresh lobsters. (And they picked us up and dropped us right at our beach!)
We rented a car and made a few day trips to visit the Mayan ruins, art gallery and the surprisingly delightful Belize Zoo. Cave-tubing was also incredible! (Scary though...) Great that these are were all so close by. My brother in-law was able to take scuba lessons in the village and went on a guided dive to the near-by reef along with my husband and the professional crew at Hamanasi Resort (just down the beach).
The best times though were just hanging at the house, playing in the surf, and visiting with locals at one or another of the cozy sea-side pubs or restaurants.
Cam, the owner, was great in communicating all the details with us ahead of time and took the time to email to make sure all was well. Also, kudos to Avis and Kent the care-takers, who were super-friendly, helpful and accommodating.
We've done a lot of travelling over the years and visited some beautiful places but this was definitely
our most casual, relaxing, fun and stress-free vacation ever!
