About Heather & Gord Armstrong

Gord and Heather visited San Pedro in the fall of 2009, fell in love with the lifestyle of the island. We searched for a home for 6 months and ended up acquiring La Gran Casa Azul.

Heather & Gord Armstrong purchased this villa in 2010

Why Heather & Gord Armstrong chose Ambergris Caye

It was a gorgeous upper level 1500 sq. ft beach house.. We decided we wanted caretakers so built a 1000 sq ft. lower apartment and a pool for them to take care of. We have a large family so to accommodate get together we also built a 1000 sq ft. care takers house.

What makes this villa unique

Our Bottom unit has been recently renovated and has all new beds, mattresses & appliances. New paint and tiles give the unit a bright tropical decor.

Secluded yet accessible oceanfront oasis. Perfect family vacation property - spacious home & grounds
  • 5 of 5
La Gran Casa Azul very comfortably accommodated our party of 10 ( 2 families with 5 college/grad students) over Christmas. This is a 2 story home with 2 fully furnished & equipped apartments. Everything is in top notch condition. This comfy home is a secluded, well maintained oceanfront property , 3 1/2 miles south of San Pedro & necessitates the rental of gold carts. Heather & Gordon are very helpful - in fact, Heather inquired about our preferences for holiday decor & had set-up a decorated, lit Christmas Tree.They will book air travel from Belize to San Pedro, arrange your golf cart rental & generally offer invaluable travel tips ( prices for goods are exorbitant in San Pedro; Heather advised packing sunscreen, mosquito repellent with DEET - a must!!- baby oil or Avon's Skin So Soft to combat the evening sand flies - and they are unbearable !. The live-in caretakers, Janet & Frank, are very friendly, helpful & are an invaluable source for everything local ( sightseeing, water adventures, recommended restaurants, where to shop etc.). We 'polled' our favorites aspects of La Gran Casa Azul : secluded private location, lovely spacious grounds, large scale pool with a deep end ( very refreshing on a hot day - which was every day during our stay), a well maintained dock with a palapa (perfect to watch sunrises & sunsets) , the ability to fish right off the dock, 5 fully functional bathrooms, well appointed kitchens. Great patio spaces on both floors. All the bedrooms are air-conditioned; the living spaces are not. But considering that we were in & out of the house all the time, we didn't find this to be a problem. We did pack our own beach towels, jars of peanut butter ( a must for the bottomless pits of the college age stomachs...), coffee, teas, detergent etc. The 3 1/2 mile trip into town over truly disgraceful roads ( in a vacation town? what is the town council thinking of??) didn't bother us at all. As a matter of fact, the college age group loved zipping around in the golf carts. The Belizean people are warm, friendly & engaging. we had a fabulous trip! San Pedro has remarkably high quality restaurants - dining was pleasurable. Advice for booking dinner reservations for large parties - make sure the restaurant can accommodate large groups. We waited 3 hrs at a popular restaurant. Diving the BLUE HOLE was memorable. Reef diving & snorkeling was also great fun; interesting coral, fish, sharks & man rays. We heartily recommend La Gran Casa Azul.

BEST place ever!

  • 5 of 5
My kids and I stayed at La Gran Casa Azul for 10 days/nights this past March and had such a great time and SO much fun here! The property is very well-kept and gorgeous, quiet, and private. The care-takers were very warm and helpful and made sure we had everything we needed.
The property is just a stone's throw from San Pedro Town - very quick golf cart drive. You can see the surf breaking on the reef from the beach. We kept ourselves busy sightseeing in town, swimming, fishing, snorkeling, a side trip to the ruins on the mainland, and a lot of relaxing and enjoying the sunshine and warm ocean breezes. Can't wait to return!!!

GREAT LOCATION! AMAZING HOLIDAY!!

  • 5 of 5
This property is exactly how it looks on the site. We stayed in the two bedroom suite,it had very nice up to date furniture and the beds are comfortable. The pool was steps from our door. And the view was breath taking!!
At the time of our stay the owners (Gord and Heather) were also staying in the upper suite! I had several questions for them regarding activities i could do with my daughter,as I had never been to belize before, they were very knowlegeable and eager to help, They even made arrangements for thier caretaker (who is a certified guide) to take my daughter and I snorkeling for the day! We had an amazing time we were able to swim freely with stingrays and tons of exotic fish. I would definately reccommend this property!

Pretty much perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Lovely setting and just at the edge of 'town' - quiet but not remote. Very clean place with excellent beds & plumbing. Great kitchen with shopping and restaurants nearby. Gordon and Heather are welcoming (a nice cold beer in your fridge upon arrival) but unobtrusive. I can easily recommend this great casa!
