We love to just hang out on the Pier enjoy the Caribbean
Brittany purchased this house in 2004
We looked all over the Caribbean and then WE FOUND BELIZE, we love the people and beauty of the island, and the laid back atmosphere of Belize, We are so busy in our regular life and we go to our home in Belze to get away from the cell phone, busy schedules of our life. We checked out many Caribbean Countries but found Belize to be our favorite. We love the beauty and people

One of our favorite things is to explore down the beach and stop in one of the resorts for breakfest lunch or dinnner...sometimes all 3 lol
In defense of the people of Belize and San Pedro Island, they are very friendly and accommodating. However, I am unable to say the same for the property management. Provided below is a list of several of the issues we experienced.
1. Kitchen - Dishwasher did not work (suspect to the water issues we experienced), oven did not heat.
2. Infinity pool - Nice until it gets filled with sewage water and turns an opaque greyish color.
3. Rain collection for water source - It drizzled on our first day upon arrival certainly not enough to fill a cistern or be "ample supply" for 10 adults.
4. The on-site care taker was informed multiple times of depleted water supply since day 2.
5. Water supply was not available until 10am on our departure day despite claims that maintenance person replenished the supply.
6. Office opens at 9am Saturdays – Had to inconvenience property management, as caretaker was not on-site to support.
7. 8 guest rate, should be 10 - Please deduct the extra person per night fee from the bribed refund amount that was offered by property management in return to retract the bad reviews (bribe was refused by guests, hence the remaining bad reviews).
In retrospect, we should have paid closer attention to the contract fine print which states, "Belize Island Beach House and manager does not accept liability for any inconvenience arising from temporary defects or stoppage in supply of water, gas, electricity, or plumbing." I guess we need to bring our own source of water, gas, electricity, and toilets...
It is also quite shameful that the property management and staff trying to place blame of the unfortunate circumstances on the guests, rather than taking responsibility and rectifying the situation.
Our visit to the Belize Island Beach House on San Pedro Island was for 5 days & 4 nights from the date range of June 7-11, 2016. Our group was comprised of 10 adults & 2 children ages 3 & 5.
Day 1: While brushing our teeth before bed, we found out that the downstairs shared bathroom sink was clogged & slowly draining.
Day 2: Started day off with very low water pressure. We let Walter (caretaker) know about the issue in the morning & he went around back, turned some valves, & returned the pressure back to normal. While cooking dinner we discovered the oven & dishwasher did not work.
Day 3: Noticed a yellowish discoloration in the water and again low water pressure. Informed Walter of the issue and departed for a snorkeling excursion.
Day 4: Again discolored yellowish water & this time a stench accompanied it. I contacted the property manager, Brittany to inform her of the situation. She stated that she would call out her mechanic, Eric to see if there was something he could repair. Walter comes knocking on the door & he walks me over to 3 empty above ground water tanks. He then shows me the 2 underground cisterns in the guest house, both empty & the last underground cistern, which is what the house is currently drawing from, & it is full of the same brownish foul filth that is running through the house. I sternly inform Brittany, "I have seen all the empty tanks and all the empty cisterns. There is nothing here to fix. The problem is there is no water except the nasty sewage water we are drawing from now.” Around 10:30pm I can hear a truck pulling up. I think to myself, “Finally!” and return to sleep with aspirations of a shower & decent toiletry conditions in the morning.
Day 5: Filth pouring out of the sink. Chris (logistics man) is scheduled to pick us up at 10:00am to head back to the airport. Not knowing what to do next, I let my group know that I cannot reach anyone, Walter is nowhere to be found & Brittany is not picking up. Left with no other choice, we begin rationing our drinking water for toiletry purposes and relieving ourselves in the foliage around the property. 7:15am Brittany returns my call & informs me that the water was delivered last night & that Chris will arrive early to help. He arrives at 10:00am. No one has showered and everyone is pissed. All the girls in the taxi took turns lashing out at him. Chris stated "Sorry about that, but that is not my responsibility. We did get water delivered & ready for the next group."
Six of us laid claim to this beautiful home for a week and didn't want to leave when our time was over. No matter where we were, the views are spectacular. Brittany, the property manager, made sure everything was handled in advance, even arranging golf carts to be waiting for us at the house. We were met at the ferry landing by Chris, who directed us to a grocery store for a pick up of Belikin and basics before we left for the house, got our luggage and us loaded into a van and off we went! The paved road ends about four miles north of town, the house is six miles north, so be prepared for a few bounces once off the pavement. Upon arrival, we met Abner, the caretaker, who showed us around and made sure we were comfortable. During the week, he referred us to the best (where the locals shop) grocery store, gave us the insight on the area, advised us on restaurants and just made sure we were happy. Brittany referred us to Chefs for Hire who came in and prepared Saturday night dinner. I would highly recommend doing this. Not having to cook or worry about going out to eat on our arrival night made it very relaxing. Do this at least once during your stay, you won't regret it! Delsia and Norma delighted us with the most wonderful meal and best of all, they even cleaned up and left the leftovers! Our only regret is that lobster was out of season during our visit and unavailable!
We used another referral, Seaduced by Belize, for our excursions (sunset cruise, jungle trip/Lamanai, and Mexico Rocks/Robles Beach/bbq). Again, highly recommended. We were picked up at our dock for each trip, and the memories our group took home can't be described.
The house itself is beautiful and secluded. We did have guests who found navigating the inside stairs to the lower floor an issue. They seem to be placed a bit too far apart and there is no hand railing. We solved this by using the outside front stairs to the lower outside door. Since we were outside most of the time, this was not a huge issue and at times, more handy. Also, a notice on the door of those very same stairs advising there is another step down would be nice. On a last note, a dusk/dawn or solar light at the bottom of the entry stairs would be helpful.
Every one of us, though, enjoyed the whole experience. Words can't do it justice. I'd encourage anyone to stay here, whether to be alone and enjoy the seclusion and beauty or go out and carouse or take tours, no matter what, highly recommended and we will return!
Belize island beach house was great. My wife and daughter and I had a great vacation. This is truly a relaxing place. Spend the day sitting on the dock swimming in the pool fishing or snorkeling what ever you like it's here. There are many resorts walking distance to eat at use there kayaks and book excursions. I recommend going to shark ray alley and hol chan marine reserve we had a great time. Will come back.
The house is beautiful. The balcony is amazing, the pool is great, rooms are fantastic size, you get two kitchens...there is a lot to like. Abner is helpful and very friendly (as was everyone we met). Brittany was responsive throughout in planning the trip. Chris was really helpful in getting us to and from San Pedro. The resort (Porto Fino) is a nice resource for activities (diving, snorkeling...if you are a diver, make sure to insist on a Wall Dive-- Mexico Rocks Canyon is really great).
There are some quirks to staying here. Be aware the getting here takes some doing-- you have to take either a plan or a boat from Belize City to San Pedro, and then another boat that takes you right to your own dock. Not a problem; just know that's coming. There was a problem with the pipes while we were there. The team did a great job of fixing the problem quickly. The water got all over the floor and we had to use a bunch of towels to clean it up. We were told that we were going to get a complimentary cleaning because of this inconvenience, but nobody ever came.
The carts were great to have, but came with some quirks as well. They have a hard time when it is muddy and wet on the dirt road that is used for travel. They stall out, and you have to dry the spark plugs to get them restarted. Riding the roads was fun for our group, but it is muddy and stinky, with potential to stall out or get stuck. It would be nice if the cart company would provide more instruction on how to use the carts. When we got there, there were two carts waiting, as promised. However, neither would start and we had to get somebody to come out. They had to replace one of the carts (they had to replace one again later in the trip) and finally got the other going. They then tied to collect more than 125% of the price that I was quoted by Brittany for the carts. I was able to do some negotiation, but be ready for some haggling.
Overall, the trip was beautiful and full of adventure. I would certainly recommend staying here if you don't mind being off the beaten path a little bit.
This place is the perfect getaway from it all. The house and it's surroundings are straight from a postcard. I can close my eyes now and still feel the breeze sitting on the dock as I read a book under the canopy. There are no distractions here, just time to be together and reconnect. We are so thankful for our experience in Belize.
