A perfect romantic getaway!

  • 5 of 5
The Red Treehouse was perfect for my wife’s and my stay in late April/early May 2014.. Once we landed and retrieved our luggage, Armando met us and took us to a market to get a few things for our stay and then delivered us by water taxi to Genie’s dock adjacent to the beach house. Rubio, the Treehouse caretaker was waiting on the dock with his wheelbarrow and delivered our luggage to the house and provided a brief overview of the property. After settling in, we decided to “explore” up the beach. A short walk away was a nice beach bar at a nearby resort. We enjoyed some delicious seafood ceviche and enjoyed our first taste of Belikin, the local beer! Our stay was wonderful in so many ways, with the tropical breeze always blowing, the lovely people we met, and the super food! Despite the many activities and excursions to chose from, our greatest enjoyment came from just relaxing on the deck enjoying the cool breeze, watching the hummingbirds feed and watching people traveling back and forth along the beach trail. We did follow others’ advice and utilized Coral Divers for our “destination” get-away. Snorkeling the Hol Chan/Shark Ray Alley and touring the Mayan Ruins were two amazing trips. Genie, the owner of Coral Divers, and his great staff, were all so helpful and friendly.
The house is located about four miles north of San Pedro which challenged us a little, but overall beach bars/restaurants were within walking distance as was the Mata Grande grocery. We did rent bikes for the week but due to the sandy beach-side path we found it was easier in most instances to just walk to where we wanted to go. Like so many others have mentioned in previous reviews, we anxiously waited the call of the Burrito man out front in the mornings. What a great way to start the day! The house had everything we needed for our 10 day stay. Because of the dry season, it was necessary to use water conservatively but we followed the custom of others and only once was there a need to refill the cistern.
We were welcomed from day one by a great family with Rubio, Iris, and little Luis (what a charmer!). Rubio and Iris treated us to a freshly caught supper of grouper and ceviche (his is THE BEST) on our 2nd day! Iris, too, was a wonderful cook and we learned how to make the ceviche and coconut rice. Rubio is a huge asset to the Treehouse!!
We decided well before our departure that we would return to Belize, and if the timing is right, we are returning to the Treehouse.

A Wonderful Experience on Ambergris Caye!

  • 5 of 5
My wife Julie and I thoroughly enjoyed our week at the "Tree House" on Ambergris Caye. The house was right on the beach with breathtaking views and a wonderful breeze off the ocean. This home is a bit off the beaten path, but accessible by water taxi, bicycle, or golf cart. A small grocery is only a 10 minute walk away. The caretaker, "Rubio" was very friendly and helpful. We could not have asked for a more relaxing spot to unwind and enjoy our vacation.
