Great view of barrier reef

The layout of Casa de Lisa worked very well for our group of 10 adults, especially the kitchen/main living area. This house is very practical for preparing your own meals although there are many good restaurants in nearby San Pedro. You will need a golf cart to get to town because Casa de Lisa is too far from town to walk. The golf cart ride to town is 20-25 minutes due to the poor condition of the road. This is a basic beach house that appeared to be one of the older rentable houses in the area. Most newer houses on Ambergris Caye appear to have lots of windows facing the beach and (I assume) rely on air conditioning to keep them cool. Casa de Lisa, on the other hand, has a deep overhanging porch on the upstairs that provides a great view of the ocean while shading the inside of the house. The furniture was needing replacement, and Mary (the manager) told me that new furniture had arrived shortly after we left. Mary was always responsive to our requests and Elvis, the caretaker, was very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed talking with him to learn more about the area. We had problems with the air conditioning units in the bedrooms causing so much condensation that water was leaking on the walls and from the ceiling. Elvis promptly called in a service man to inspect and diagnose the problem. We learned that you need to turn off the bedroom AC units during the day. We hired a local cook recommended by Elvis to prepare our Thanksgiving dinner and she prepared a wonderful seafood meal - who needs turkey when you have fresh caught crab, lobster, and snapper! Casa de Lisa is one of the most reasonably-priced houses we could find on Ambergris Caye. It is a good choice if you are on a budget.

You get what you pay for

  • 2 of 5

First of all Elvis the caretaker is AMAZING!!!! Super nice, helpful and does the best with what he is given to work with.

Now the house:

1. Update your pictures posted on this site! Your furnishings DO NOT look like that!

2. 2 bedrooms downstairs (closest to the bathroom) had ceiling and wall water leakage. Enough to soak thru one of the beds and my brother and his wife had to sleep elsewhere. We thought from the 2 bathrooms upstairs, but Elvis and a plumber said it was from condensation of the a/cs. If that is the case, suggest turning on the a/c at least two days prior to guest arrival so humidity in the rooms even out before guest arrival. Even the walls were sweating to the point that the paint bubbled!

3. Downstairs shower produced maybe 3 streams of water from the showerhead. As my brother said, he couldn't even wash his armpit hair with that! Don't know the resolution but Elvis fixed it the next day. Does take a very long time for water to warm though.

4. Beds and linens are TERRIBLE!! We all washed (washer and dryer in the shed behind house, you buy your own detergent) our sheets cause they smelled and felt damp. Sheets were torn and ripped and rough to the touch. I could feel the springs on the bed and even if I just slightly moved, the bed squeaked. I swear I was just waiting for it to fall apart in the middle of the night. Even found a screw on the floor one morning.

5. BED BUGS!!! At least 3 rooms had them! We know that the bites we got (everywhere!) were NOT sand fleas because we didn't touch the beach for 2.5 days because of rain! And there were new bites found every morning!

6. Flies in the house even though we didn't leave food out.

7. They gave us 1 roll of toilet paper per bathroom...the one on the holder! We bought our replenishment...which is fine...just tell guests we need to buy our own TP!

8. The dock would be even better if the walkway was lighted. Replace some of the boards. I'm petite but I thought I might fall thru walking on a few of them.

9. Wish it had nicer beach and beach access.

In summary....Elvis was the best thing about this house! Can't say enough about him! The house needs serious serious updating or be more honest in your listing description. Mary is also NOT very responsive. If you can afford to up your budget, do it! We regretted choosing this house!

Not the best, but the price was right

  • 3 of 5

There were seven of us, all adults, and most of us are accustomed to many styles of accommodation from 5-star to the most basic. That was good, because this house would be very unacceptable to those who only travel first class. The house shows a lot of wear, and it wasn't clean. But it was the best price I could find for a big house on Ambergris Caye, and we were very happy with the size and the location, even though it's pretty close to the dump. The on-site manager, can't remember his name, was great and really took care of us. But the woman who cleaned, both before we arrived and once during our stay, was terrible. The kitchen floor had dried up food in the sink and on the floor, the showers had former tenant's hair in the drain, the area rugs were filthy. I imagine that the bedding was clean, but you couldn't tell by looking at it, and that made me the most uncomfortable. I'm not saying at all that I would recommend against this house; we wanted something inexpensive because we weren't sure how many people would be splitting the bill, and we wanted to be on the water. This house filled both of those needs.

Casa De Lisa

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family stayed on Ambergris Caye for two weeks, and might I say that "Casa de Lisa," is a very amazing house. It is right across from a great snorkeling spot near the Barrier Reef, It has a beautiful sandy, shallow (4-5 feet) area around the dock, which is great for swimming, and a sandy yard. A nice cool breeze helps the temperature go down, which leaves it being around 75-85 degrees. The actual house, comes with all kitchen appliances and a nice living room. A balcony with hammocks and an outdoor table really makes you feel comfortable. The bedrooms are a nice size, which each (all 5) have a queen sized bed, a smaller single bed, and closet space. There is great service there and you can get your water filled for 5 belize dollars (2.50 US.) San Pedro Town is not far from there on a golf cart. A few bumps after it rains, but otherwise it's a great little ride to see Ambergris.

I hope everyone who reads this really thinks about using this house for your vacation!!
