|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Diane's Beach House is a small cottage on the beach, located within walking distance of the water taxi docks, mini-marts, bakery, bank, restaurants, tour operators, the Split and more.
Our 1-BR / 1-BA Beach Suite is an upper level unit with kitchen, sitting room, A/C Bedroom with king size memory foam bed, and private balcony overlooking the Caribbean Sea. There is a sofa-bed in the living room (ceiling fan only). It is available as a vacation rental for the adventurous traveller who may be looking for some alone time, an escape from the bitter cold winter, or in need of a romantic getaway. Others come strictly for the superb SCUBA diving, fishing & snorkeling off the world's second largest barrier reef.
A long term tenant occupies the beach level unit, which adds a little life to the neighborhood and offers a bird's eye view of what the Caye Caulker full time lifestyle looks like. Who knows, one day you may want to move &/or retire here! We are also open to long term (1+ Yrs) leases and can assist with relocation and identifying future property purchase.
Caye Caulker is about community; village life; barefoot beach livin'. Yes, it is also a popular tourist destination - especially among Europeans and Canadians who embrace an outdoor pedestrian lifestyle, street side vendors and cafes, the natural ebb & flow of an island-village community unchanged by the tourism product. Indeed, it is a pristine, untouched paradise; unpretentious, effortless, raw & real. Walking bare feet, bicycle riding or golf cart exploring are the main modes of transportation.
There are no high rises here, no fancy restaurants or need for high heels and hair spray. Embrace the beauty within while you get back in touch with nature and all that is glorious about this spectacular land & seascape. Enjoy spectacular sunrises from the balcony of this beach house vacation rental, then later in the evening stroll on over to The Split where comparing Caye Caulker's amazing sunsets is a daily spectator sport. Bring your camera!
Diane grew up on the island of Caye Caulker, Belize.
They were glorious years ~ Barefoot & Carefree!
Property Manager/Owner purchased this house in 1999
This beachfront property has been in our family for over 40 years. Diane's Beach House was built in 1999.
On the Beach, with close proximity to restaurants, grocery stores, gift shops, snorkel & tour operators, scuba diving, windsurfing & kiteboarding...spectacular sun rises!
The property was fairly priced and only a one minute walk from the water taxi dock. A few more minutes to various bars and restaurants. Caye Caulker is pretty laid back and relaxing compared to Ambergris Caye. Had a fun catamaran snorkeling trip with Carlos tours, but other than that, there's not much to do. So we read a lot. Very few swimming beaches. Re snorkeling, very few fish but it was fun to swim with nurse sharks. Rented bikes for two hours, which was plenty long enough to see the whole island.
Nice and Roomy
Convenient Location, especially from water taxi
TV with movie channels
A/C in bedroom drowns out exterior noise
Sand Beach in front, but not for swimming
Ocean View, sunrises
Water Cooler with 5 gallons of water

18 step stairs to entry, especially with luggage.
Limited Furniture, Lighting and Decor
Ants on kitchen counters
Minimally Equipped kitchen- no spices, paper towels, S&P, etc.
Permanent Family resides downstairs rendering that area off limits... Not obvious from pictures.
We stayed in this home last week. While the home itself was comfortable and clean and actually better than pictured, the outdoor space was horrific. This home is sandwiched between a youth hostel and a modern building that are less than 2 feet away. No privacy whatsoever. The downstairs tenant had noisy unsupervised children and constant comings and going's. All we wanted to do was sit and relax enjoy the beautiful view and that just was not an option. Would not recommend staying
What a trip!! We arrived to Caye Caulker by water taxi and the beach house is about 3 houses down from where we were dropped off. I prefer to be further from the water taxi because we were always seeing people get on and off in large groups, but it was convenient. Very easy walk with suitcases. The beach house was a short walk (5 min) to all of the shops/restaurants! It was well kept, and the bathroom was really nice. There was plenty of hot water in the shower and the AC in the bedroom was amazing. There was a lady that came and changed our towels and took the trash. The island is so small that the beach house is never far away, no matter where you wander off to! This place was quiet (except for our party neighbors) and felt tucked away. Now looking at room pictures of other places we saw on the island, this beach house had the nicest interior, to me.
The locals were very friendly, we met lots of young couples, and we ate lobster every day. Drink Rum Punch everywhere you go!!
Newly renovated bathroom and nice shower
Plenty of space and shelves inside for belongings/clothes
Fresh towels each day
Clean bed, kitchen, shower, toilet
Close to everything on the island
AC and drinking water
Perfect for a couple who likes to be in the center of everything the town offers
Diane was very accommodating when my flights and dates changed a few times. She responded very fast.
Extremely close to water taxi (I like to be a bit further away)
House next door- dog was always barking
High rise next door had loud party people one night
check-in lady was a bit late to let us in so we sat outside the room for an hour (tell her the exact time you're getting there)
Very nice place. Perfect location and walking distance to everything. Diane was a wonderful host and provided everything we needed during our stay.
First off, this property is in an excellent location close to the water taxi, restaurants, bars, snorkeling/swimming, and shopping.
However, I am reviewing the property owner, rather than this particular property, as we did not actually stay at Diane's Beach House. Unfortunately, there was a very large construction project going on at the adjacent property (multiple floors of concrete being poured, etc.) and the place was just not at it's best. Diane let us know a bit ahead of time that the construction was still going on, so she would be able to provide alternate accommodation at another of her properties. However, it was further inland in a more residential area. It was a nice property, but we were really intent on an oceanfront property. She very graciously asked her property manager to work with us to find a property that was more suitable for us and promptly refunded our payment in full. We found a very nice place to stay and were very appreciative that we were able to work with Diane with no drama! We would definitely consider staying at one of her properties on our next visit to Caye Caulker.
