Overview

Ambergris Caye Condo Rental Photos and Description

Penthouse Condominium, 2 floors, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths w/ Pool, Beach, Palapa Dock

Enjoy spectacular unique views from every room of this amazing 2000sq.ft. beachfront penthouse. Villa Natalia is on the third floor and offers one of the best beach, barrier reef, and ocean views on the island. As one of only nine units at Tranquility Beach, privacy, relaxation, and a quiet beach are yours in a very desirable and secure neighborhood. To keep our guests comfortable and in a spacious living environment we strictly limit our occupancy to a maximum of 6 persons.

The tiled floor and high vaulted ceilings give our home an airy, spacious feel. Our furnishings have been carefully selected from around the world. The central air-conditioning keeps the entire space cool, or open the windows to enjoy the ocean breeze.

The kitchen is fully-equipped with all appliances. The dining room seats eight, or step through the French doors and dine al-fresco on the covered veranda overlooking the MesoAmerican Barrier Reef and Caribbean Sea. There are three bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms - one master with a king-size bed, one bedroom with two queen beds, and a third with a queen. All three with breathtaking views.

The landscaped grounds include a perfect fresh water swimming pool just steps from the beach. The pool area and beach are appointed with teak lounge chairs. The dock extends 350 feet from the shore, and makes a convenient pick up spot for water taxis, dive boats, and tour charters, or to slip in the water for an easy afternoon swim and snorkel.

Villa Natalia is located 2.5 miles South of San Pedro and ground transportation on arrival and departure is included as a part of your reservation. Our location gives you easy access into town by golf cart (vendor discount available), taxi, or water taxi. For a truly intimate trip take one of our bicycles (four provided) to town! A small market, Marin's Mini, is located just up the road. It's great for basic groceries and necessities. 5 steps across the sand road finds you at The Lone Star Grill & Cantina, and a short walk north on the same sand road takes you to the popular and award winning Black Orchid Restaurant

We take pride in our reputation as owners who encourage questions and can provide answers and information that allow our guests to hit the ground running when they arrive on the island. Please take advantage of this personalized service and email us about rates**, amenities and any other questions that come to mind. It our pleasure to give you a prompt personal reply.

Warmest Regards,

George & Jody

What makes this condo unique

Proximity to town in a small secure neighborhood with enough local amenities to make going to town an option not a necessity!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to send a thank you for helping us have a great vacation. Your house is great just like the reviews said , great location across from Joes Tex Mex. Mark and his crew cooked supper for us after we brought back our fish from an outing with Suya. We liked it being away from town and having what was an almost private beach. We rented a golf car for the entire time, That is the only way to go we drove all over both north and south of town.



Armando took great care of us and the villa, everything was very clean and conveniant.



We ate at Hidden Treasures, Joes, Robins,Palapa bar and other beach bars, loved them all.



Went with Suya to Ho Chan and swam with the sharks and also used Suya for a very sucessful fishing trip.



Back home now looking out at snow covered yard and missing the wonderful ocean colors of the morning view from the patio of Villa Natalia



If you ever need a reference for someone trying to find a villa on Belize just get in touch with us and we will tell them about our great trip.



Thanks again!

Beautiful property for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Villa Natalia fulfilled all of our needs for both relaxation and adventures in San Pedro. The property was spacious, clean and well maintained. The modernly designed kitchen was especially well-equipped and and the grill available to us was massive! One of the highlights our vacation was sipping coffee around the table on the ocean-front deck. Tranquility Beach Resort, which houses Villa Natalia, has beautiful grounds and a comfortable pool area. We spent time every day on the beach or in the pool on the property. Armando, the groundskeeper, was a pleasant fellow who did a fabulous job taking care of our needs (water refills / giving us fresh coconut water). We also enjoyed having a few eating establishments within walking distance of the condo (although it should be noted that some of the establishments where starting to close for a few week-months because of the arrival of the slow season). The condo is ideally located a couple of miles south of San Pedro, offering the quiet we desired and yet the golf cart ride into town was quick and easy. I'd recommend Villa Natalia to anyone looking to vacation on Ambergris Caye.

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

I can't tell you how wonderful our stay at Villa Natalia was! Simple words can't describe how beautiful San Pedro is, how marvelous the staff was and how relaxing our vacation was. The pictures do not do justice to Villa Natalia, it is far, far more impressive in person. I would recommend Villa Natalia to anyone who is looking for a peaceful, elegant and comfortable retreat in which to enjoy the tranquility of island life. Believe all the reviews, it is perfect!

Owner's Response: Ahaha! Excellent Wanda! So glad you ladies had such a relaxing stay. Its pretty easy to slip into the island mode when you're hanging by the pool checking out the parrots and orioles in the palms or sitting on the dock listening to the reef and,well, just chillin'! It doesn't take long to make mañana!! part of your island vocabulary!

No Better Way to Celebrate Turning 70!

  • 5 of 5

Three of us turn 70 some time this year so we wanted to celebrate in a unique location - we found it on Ambergris Caye at the Villa Natalia. While the pool was for all 9 units, we had it to our selves and enjoyed it immensely. The Villa is so beautifully decorated and the kitchen fully stocked. As others have said, Armando is a sweetheart, and his dog Bobo is adorable. We followed many of the previous reviewers suggestions eating at Lone Star, Black Orchid, Caliente, Caramba's, Blue Water Grill, and Elvi's. All good and the Baker is THE place to go for delicious bread, turnovers, etc. When you visit, a must is snorkeling and cave tubing. Everyone we met was so very nice and helpful on the island. And while my friends jumped and cussed a few times when I "missed" the bumps or dips, I had a blast driving the golf cart all week. We have only 2 recommendations for George: a railing to more easily get out of the pool would be nice, along with a ladder at the end of the dock - even some of the young people could not jump up on the dock.

Otherwise, a perfect way to spend a week with friends! Thank You!!

Owner's Response: Linda, greetings! Glad you thoroughly enjoyed yourselves. Appreciate all the great comments and of course your recommendations. We got the access ladder installed within a day or so of your stay as a part of the dock upgrade. Wish we'd been a week or so ahead of schedule for your convenience. We'll be taking up the pool handrail installation as a part of the next re-plaster as the water has to be drained to effect both of those improvements. Our local businesses also appreciate the mention as word of mouth is so important. Best wishes!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Villa Natalia. It was everything we hoped for and more. Beautifully decorated with gorgeous views. It is located just far enough from the main town so that you aren't in the middle of all the hustle. There is a great restaurant across the street and a market within walking distance. I recommend renting a golf cart as it is a fun way to get around town and makes it easier to explore the island. Villa Natalia has everything you need for a great vacation with the lovely pool, great deck to relax on, veranda with a hammock, and the views which are breath taking. Armando takes wonderful care of the property and is more than happy to help you with anything you need. We hope to come back and stay here again!

The property management company is also very helpful. When we arrived the WiFi was not working and they immediately got someone from the internet provider to come out and fix the issue. We were impressed with their quick response and making sure we were happy.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation! The condo is even better than the pictures. The owner George provided great information, Trish with Caye management made sure our arrival was taken care of and arranged for our pick up from the airport and also that our girls were picked up from the water taxi. Jorge picked us up and showed us around town and then Armando was always avaliabe at the condo. We felt very safe and the complex is very quiet. The only negative has nothing to do with the condo, Tropic Air is for sure on Island time, it was one hour behind both ways. Hope you have as much fun as we did.

Owner's Response: In the Caribbean where island time is something that manifests itself in just about every aspect of a guests travel itinerary it's so great to hear that the Villa Natalia staff is doing right by our guests; sometimes above and beyond. We're very fortunate to have the crew we do.
