Casa Gonzo is situated on the Caribbean just South & w/in walking distance of the Victoria House - 20 min walk along the beach into the town of San Pedro. The 2 master suites face the water & the open louvered windows give the effect of sleeping under the palm fronds hearing the surf on the reef at night. The 3rd downstairs bedroom is in the back, but has the benefit of air conditioning for those that must have refrigerated air. All bedrooms downstairs are king beds. The loft upstairs has 2 twin beds & a queen, along w/the TV for sports & breaking news. Enjoy rainwater, outdoor showers in both baths. Our staff live on the property in separate housing. They're heaven-sent & will take care of your every need. Fishing & dive guides can pick you up directly from the private 300-ft pier.
4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8.

Quiet Home Close to San Pedro
*You're about a 15 min golf cart trip away from downtown San Pedro! Super convenient for grocery shopping, dining, excursions!
*Consuelo will arrange fishing or diving with a pick-up from your own dock. Just make sure you confirm pricing and timing. They will try and charge you more.
*Consuelo is a great chef. We definitely should have had her cook her fried chicken another time!
*We spent most of our time in the kitchen/living room, drinking wine and making mixed drinks. The couch and sitting areas fit about 6 of us (there were 7 in total) so we ended up dragging some of the furniture from the next room over.
*Did we mention there was a bar next door! This is super fun. Every so often, we would take a 2 minute walk and have someone else cook and make drinks for us! So nice :)
*If you open all of the louvers, the breeze runs through the entire house and makes it wonderfully cool, but the mosquitoes somehow still get in. Do not neglect your bug spray!!
*While the water is extremely close to the home, the grass in the ocean and the seaweed make it unpleasant to get in the water. Plus, it's only about 4-5 feet deep for 100+ feet out! And the seaweed smells...
*Layout is strange. The main living room is open to both main bedrooms. And you shower outside which is super neat when it's raining, but also leaves you open to mosquitoes.
*You can hear everything from the loft which is unfortunate if your guests are late sleepers mixed with a morning crowd.
*The third bedroom has an air conditioner (great!) but the blue light lights up the room better than the actual lights do, so it might be uncomfortable for some while they're sleeping.
A Christmas we will all remember
The house was ideal for the entire family. 5 adults and two teens for a week without feeling crowded or cramped. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. The location is great, not too far from town, but far enough to avoid most of the chaos. I would definitely consider booking Casa Gonzo again on my next trip to San Pedro.
Our family spent a week at Casa Gonzo and everything exceeded our expectations. The location was spot on and the staff was so accommodating and kind. We could not have asked for a better vacation and we look forward to a return trip.
Private Older Home with Pretty Beach Setting in Friendly Ambergris Caye, Belize!
My family of 6 adults stayed at Casa Gonzo. We loved Ambergris Caye, Belize! Our activities of guided fishing tours and snorkeling excursions were amazing!!! The reef (only 1/4 mile from shore) was over-the-top BEAUTIFUL with all the fish, turtles, nursing sharks & rays. The beaches were not like Florida or Texas.... Most places you don't walk into water from shoreline because of sea grass; therefore, a pool would be a definite plus to a rental property. Driving through town on golf carts was a lot of fun. The restaurants were excellent and not expensive. We loved sitting and being served at tables IN the turquoise water at the new grill, Blue Bayou, next to Secret Beach. Also, listened to live music at the Palapa Bar. We had fabulous massages at the spa at the Hilton & drinks at sunset by their pool.
The Casa Gonzo is South of San Pedro but close enough to get to town easily on good roads. Dining on the Veranda was wonderful on gorgeous nights with a breeze. The beach was raked and beautiful with lounging chairs having new cushions that were so comfortable and a hammock. The pier was amazing with benches for gathering under the full moon. My sons also fished off pier during the day. Our guides picked up from the pier each day which made my fishermen happy. The cook and staff were friendly and managed to keep up with us for the most part. We had a busy schedule. So glad that we pre-arranged daily activities that made our trip so special and adventurous.
Casa Gonzo is an older home. It is private (a bonus for sure) and a beach house character (open air & breezy) but parts of the home were tired and need attention. The screens were not fitting well and no door thresholds... letting mosquitoes & lizards inside. The low water pressure at kitchen sink made clean up more difficult and longer. The refrigerator was old so it didn't keep our items very cold. We had plumbing problems with the Master toilet that were repaired quickly thankfully. Some of sofa covers were worn with holes. Towels were older... especially beach towels.
No fault of Casa Gonzo owners but the vacant lot next door needs cleaning up. It had a sea grass and trash build up on banks that smelled sometimes when on the beach. Also, city of San Pedro should be spraying for mosquitoes, especially near lagoon areas.
All and all... we made the best of every situation and had a great time! We loved Belize & the friendly people there. Hope to return some day.
We had a great week from the get go. The house Ian in a great location and has everything that we needed. Consuelo was the one that made the trip though. She made dinner for us several times and was there to cater to our every need. We all highly recommend casa gonzo for a stay in San Pedro.
Beautiful & perfectly designed for the location!
Casa Gonzo was the perfect vacation get away for our group of 3 couples. The home is beautifully architecturally designed for the location on the Caribbean Sea. The cross winds cool the house and the view is spectacular. The home and property are well maintained by Consuelo & Estevan, and together they made our stay comfortable and we were well taken care of by both of them.
We all fell in love with Ambergris Caye and the people of San Pedro; exceptionally friendly folks who always greet you with a smile. San Pedro now has my heart and we would hope to visit Casa Gonzo with our family in the future. Highly recommend this vacation property!
We're so happy to hear you enjoyed our little slice of heaven.
Thank you so much & please do come back!!!!
