This comfortable and casual large beach house is steps to the water from your own private beach. It is only 3.5 miles from town, an easy bike ride, or water taxi ride. We will arrange your transportation to the house upon your arrival on the island via a private boat. There is a new golf cart available on the premises

Situated in the quiet and secluded north beach area, you have only other beautiful private homes and a few small resorts on large tracts of land up and down the beach. You have privacy but are only minutes from everything.

Next door is a great dive shop offering personalized dive trips, and you can walk down the beach to nearby restaurants.

If you like to fish, right in front of the house is the best place on the island to catch Bone Fish, you can see them from the balcony. For reef fishing, a guide can pick you up in front of the house and take you on a 5 minute boat ride to the reef.

Newly refinished, this home is 2700 sq. ft. Even though there two operate units, the house is reserved as one unit. Each floor has large bright and airy rooms to enjoy the views, plus great air-conditioning.

About Conrad McGinnis

This property was built in 2010, I am the second owner as I purchased the home in 2014, after seeing the house and loving not only the house, but its perfect location on the island. The house is close enough to town, but far enough to be out of the hustle and bustle of San Pedro. It is the perfect place for families and couples that want their privacy.

Conrad McGinnis purchased this house in 2014

Why Conrad McGinnis chose Ambergris Caye

Why the Owner Chose San Pedro: The location of the house overlooks two natural cuts in the Barrier Reef. Also this location has one of the best locations for Bone Fishing on the island. You can see the bone fish in the water from the Balcony. The reef is less then 1/4 mile from the house.

The Unique Benefits at this House: Year built 2010: year purchased 2014- I love the views from the Beach House. It’s a quiet and relaxing area, not far from the action. You can see the reef, and hear the waves breaking from the house. At night you can see cruise liners and of course the star filled night sky. There are plenty of exotic birds around the house, and it is so quiet all you can hear are the sounds of nature around you.

What makes this house unique

When I was looking to buy property in Belize, I wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of a city, but close enough to enjoy the shopping, restaurants and amenities. This property is 4.5 miles away from town so it is peaceful and quiet. You almost feel like your on a private island. If you want to go into town, you can use the bikes, catch a water taxi which is about 150 yards away or use the new golf cart ( additional cost).

Here at Casa Nirvana, you have the best of both worlds

Definitely nirvana

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at cash nirvana. We have stayed in San pedro before, so we were familiar with the island, and the house is Ina great location, especially now that the road is being constructed. Beautiful waters right out the front door. The kayaks made accessing the reef easy, which made it feel like we had our own personal reef. There were no problems with the house, the upstairs view is definitely the highlight. Sam the housekeeper is a great help for whatever you might need and is right down the beach. Also there is a boat/snorkel/scuba operator north of the house that were amazing. They were fun, knowledgeable, and very affordable. Highly recommend

Lovely beach house on very charming island

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Nirvana in San Pedro Belize. The trip began dreamily by being picked up at the airport by boat. We sped across the sparkling ocean to Nirvana. The house was a optically pleasing, a beautiful Caribbean blue and inside was very nice. All of the amenities were there, a coffee maker, microwave, fridge, oven, stove, grill, blender and more. A washer was present and a dryer was installed during my stay. I really enjoyed the big Jacuzzi bath tub after spending afternoons snorkeling reefs with Coral Divers which I also highly recommend. I layed on the hammock on the porch and contemplated never going home and making a life in lovely San Pedro. I will be back to Nirvana for sure! Much more private than a resort. 5 stars from me.

Our Belize Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Both of Conrad's homes were well maintained and had all the amenities advertised and more. The ladies at Kantara Ku provided great food and were extremely friendly. On the island, Shane had us all hooked up with bikes, canoes, a golf cart, and great recommendations for activities. Casa Nirvana was a beautiful place, extremely clean, and perfectly located for privacy and near the beautiful Secret Beach. I have already recommended this particular property owner to several interested friends, and our family is strongly considering a return visit next year. Conrad really set us up for what turned out to be our best family vacation ever.

The idealistic, relaxing island vacation

  • 5 of 5

As a new vacationer to Belize, I have to say that my time at Casa Nirvana surpassed my expectations. We traveled from the mainland by boat- and immediately I was in awe over the gorgeous water, friendly locals, and of course the beautiful property. After our boat-to-doorstep service (the casa is steps from the ocean!) we were quickly given a tour of the property, all the included amenities, and given any and all information, tips/tricks, and recommendations we needed.

The inside of the house was perfect for us (three ladies.) It's separated by two main floors- one large suite above with a full kitchen and living/dining area (and THE most wonderful bath suite;) one lower level with the same layout but two separate rooms- ideal for privacy. There was also a bonus deck above the second floor, which was the perfect evening cocktail spot. There were hammocks and various lounge chairs which made it hard to actually leave the property!

Both kitchens were fully stocked with all the utensils, cookware, dining essentials and purified water you need for a home away from home feeling. Even thought the island food options were plentiful (and delicious) it was nice to have the option of making a dinner "at home." Anytime we did decide to eat out it was a simple golf cart ride away- and the dining options are reasonable in price. There were also bikes provided- but the golf cart is super fun!

In addition to a clean kitchen, the furniture and linens were all immaculate- and nothing was broken or in need of repair (wifi is a huge plus.)

Since you do have to navigate the island by golf cart- make sure to keep the house mobile phone handy! The property manager was quick to answer when I found myself a bit lost- but every experience was a fun adventure.

Outside of the property is a beautiful bathing spot called "secret beach," which was by far the most serene and quiet spot. You also HAVE to do the snorkeling trip- i was lucky enough to see sea turtles, hundreds of fish, stingrays- and swim with sharks! It was a once in a lifetime experience. If you travel to the mainland by boat for the day don't miss out on the zip lining- also a top experience.

All in all the property was to die for, the owner and manager went above and beyond with all the details, and the island itself is out of a dream!

I would 100000% recommend this property to friends, family, and strangers (already have!)

Beautiful, relaxing, and an incredible experience

  • 5 of 5

This was my first experience with a VRBO and I was so much more than pleased! The owner, Conrad, arranged for our transportation to Casa Nirvana via private boat. The house is located on a private beach facing the barrier reef with crystal aqua blue waters which are breathtaking and stunning. The house is very spacious, clean, and comfortable. It has 2 fully furnished floors with well equipped kitchens. Although we occupied both floors during our stay, we only used one of the kitchens. We took the gulf cart into town for groceries and cooked part of the time. We also took advantage of the large grill which made for a quiet and peaceful evening at home relaxing out on the porch with the ocean breeze and beautiful views.

There are also many local restaurants to enjoy which are a short distance from the house. Every morning locals would come by the front of the house selling various foods such as breakfast burritos and chicken tamales. We did partake and it was very tasty!

If you enjoy the beach and the ocean this is the place to be! Just down the beach a short distance is Coral Divers who can take you out fishing, snorkeling, and diving. They pick you up on the dock just in front of the house. Conrad, the owner, arranged for our trip to Hol Chan Marine Reserve with Coral Divers. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made sure we had a memorable experience snorkeling. We saw everything from sting rays, to sea turtles, parrot fish, and barracuda, and also nurse sharks. Some of the nurse sharks were very large, but so docile we were able to touch them.

Conrad has bicycles and kayaks available on premise which we indulged in. We also used the golf cart to explore the island, the local beaches, and traveled to town where there are many restaurants, bars, and shops.

Our stay at Casa Nirvana was both relaxing and quite pleasurable! I am looking forward to my next visit. This was definitely a vacation worth repeating!

Great Week in Ambergris Caye

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Belize and I took my wife and kids (12 and 7). We all had a great time. The house was amazing and the kids enjoyed their own space downstairs. The house came with a golf cart which was incredibly handy and also 3 kayaks which we put to good use. We did many activities all around the surrounding waters. Took my wife on a salt water fly fishing trip for Bonefish and caught quite a few. The entire family enjoyed a trip to Hol Chan Marine park. Got to swim with Rays and Nurse sharks. Also took my son on a diving trip to San Pedro cut which we really enjoy. Genie and his dive crew were great. In fact they were so great, we asked them to take us spearfishing for lobster the next day. Lobster season opened halfway through our stay. Using my son's speargun we (Well my son) got 5 lobsters in just a few hours. Cooked them that night at the house. The lobster, along with some Snapper we speared made for an amazing dinner! Conrad (The owner) was extremely helpful leading up to the trip and Shane helped us for anything and everything during our stay. I'll post some of our pictures of our week, but we had a very memorable vacation!
