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.
A little slice of heaven on the beach....
From the moment we arrived by boat to Ambergris Caye from Belize City, greeted by the warm and friendly staff, to our very last day, we enjoyed every moment!
The house was perfect for 3 couples, enough space for each of us to do our own thing - be it in the water, sitting on the dock chairs or simply reading a book on the veranda. The house was as well cared for as we were! Everything was just perfect - from the warm ocean breeze, the sound of the palms rustling above the outdoor (but very private) shower to candlelight dinners on the veranda. The town of San Pedro was a quick golf cart ride away - a beautiful little town, lots of amenities and always a friendly local willing to help. We've never had such a relaxing and idyllic vacation. We would return in a heartbeat! A thousand thanks to our gracious hosts!
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!!!!
The most relaxing vacatiion
What a beautiful home in an idyllic setting.
Three couples enjoyed the breathtaking view of the crystal clear water with the waves breaking over the reef, the palm trees swaying in the steady breeze, and the unbelievable service provided by Consuello and Andrew.
Perfect for a Quiet, Relaxing Getaway
Casa Gonzo is an ideal spot for those who wish to relax and enjoy family/friend time without the bustle of the town and tourists.
Private cook and cleaning service - wonderful meals each day
Private boat dock/swimming
Ocean front - great views and breeze
Quiet area south of San Pedro town, but still convenient to local sites
Big, comfortable bedrooms
The house relies on fans rather than A/C, which some individuals may not like
The strip of beach is narrow, not great for wading.
All showers are outdoor (which didn't bother us at all, but could be an issue for people with mobility issues)
We had a great stay, reveled in the local food and ocean views, and cheerfully recommend Casa Gonzo to others.
