Beachside Cottage is on a beautiful oceanfront property which looks out on to the Caribbean Sea. The peaceful setting is a quiet enclave of three houses that are just a short picturesque walk or bike ride from the village of Caye Caulker.
Grill fresh fish by the ocean and eat it at the picnic table under the stars or stroll to town to sample local favorites at one of the excellent Village restaurants. Enjoy an evening drink on the veranda gazing out over the ocean and up at the stars. Watch the technicolor sunrise as you drink your morning coffee. Swim and fish off the dock in the calm protected waters inside the Belize barrier reef.
The house has been recently renovated and beautiful Belizean hardwood floors and ceiling have been added throughout the cottage.

Dave and Noelle love the Country of Belize. In 2011 they escaped the freezing Minnesota Winters and moved full time to their home on Caye Caulker. The laid back, relaxed vibe of Caye Caulker fits them perfectly. Their dog Rudy loves the island life as well!
Caye Caulker Rentals purchased this cottage in 2010
My wife and I stayed here for 11 days and we had a completely amazing time, one of our best travel experiences ever actually! Caye Caulker Rentals managed the rental process and they were very friendly, easy to deal with and very accommodating, arranging for any local taxi services that we required. The cottage is very nice with beautiful hardwood finishes and it comes complete with everything that you need for your stay. The provided bicycles were used every day to get into town as the cottage is located on the quieter south side of the island (a 5 min bike ride or 10-15 min walk in to town). While it's next to the local airport, we really didn't notice much noise at all. The location on the beach is beautiful with amazing sunrises and ocean breezes and we had virtually private use of the dock and sandy area for swimming. Every day brought different marine life around the dock, starfish, needle fish, trumpet fish, tarpons, stingrays, etc. Even more important (to us anyway), were the people around us and on the island. The owners Dave and Noelle are very friendly and gracious hosts that live next door. They included us in all of their local activities including Yoga, helping at the local Humane Society and they joined us at many of the local restaurants and bars including the amazing local expat bar "The Barrier Reef Sports Bar" (another highlight for us). They introduced us to many local islanders and expats and we can't express enough how great of a time we had. We also highly enjoyed having their dogs around. They would often come by in the morning to visit and to just generally hang out with us on the beautiful deck. Missing our own dogs, we appreciated the K9 company. We've been to Belize 3 times now, this was our first visit to Caye Caulker and easily our most favorite. You know you've had a great trip when feel like you're leaving friends and family behind :( Thanks Dave and Noelle for such a great time! We can't wait to come back again, VERY SOON hopefully ;) Bring lots of bug spray though, the sand fleas can be bad.

We stayed in the cottage for 7 days and had the most relaxing vacation ever! The view from the deck and the pier are unbeatable! We had the pier to ourselves to swim from, read on, sit on at night under the stars! The bed was comfy and we had everything we needed. Air conditioning is priceless as it was mid to high 80's and VERY humid during our stay. Having the bikes was wonderful as it was the only way we got around! Would definately recommend the beachside cottage to anyone and we will definately see if it is available on returning!
Spent 6 days here. Wonderful place. Wonderful location. Wonderful owner who lives next door. Neighbors on other side were Will and Jane. Pretty much had beach to ourselves. Long pier out front you can snorkel and swim from. Airport is right behind you but no noise. We flew in and out from Belize City so the location was perfect. Walked to the airport! Can't beat that! Bicycles come with the place and we rode every day. Only way to get get around. Well you can call a golf cart but the bicycles were great.
Belize has the second largest barrier reef in the world. Beachside Cottage is located just one mile from the reef. The snorkeling and diving are amazing. Caye Caulker has guides that can take you out for an afternoon snorkel or fully certify you in scuba diving. The fishing is great whether you want to throw a line off the dock or charter a fishing boat and guide.
Nearby Ambergris Caye and the town of San Pedro has more upscale shopping and dining. It's a quick water taxi ride away so you can visit for the day and then come home to this peaceful setting.
A 45 minute water taxi or an 8 minute local flight will bring you to the mainland of Belize where there is no end to the adventures available on a day trip. Cave tubing, zip lining, Mayan ruins, wildlife sanctuaries, horseback riding, the wonderful Belize Zoo and more are easily arranged
and visited in time to catch the last water taxi back to peaceful Caye Caulker.
