Overview

About the property

This ground floor condo is in a 13 unit beachfront complex just south of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye -- the Belize Barrier Reef is only ½ mile (1 km) away and you can see the waves crashing over it from the resort. What a view!

You enter the condo via the porch into the spacious living/dining area. You’ll find comfortable chairs and a couch (which converts to a queen sleeper sofa) as well as dining seating for four both at the table and the counter. Just beyond is the fully equipped kitchen, and a little farther is the full bath. The bedroom with queen bed is in the back of the condo.

About Barbara Smalley, Vacation Rentals Belize

I've lived most of my life in the U.S. but have also lived for a couple of months to up to two years in different countries: Germany, Spain, Australia, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico & Belize. Since 2011 I've been living a somewhat nomadic lifestyle while exploring, working & volunteering in new & old places -- it's a great way to keep learning!

I was lucky to meet Deb & Mark from Dallas, who own the Cartagena, Colombia, & Ambergris Caye, Belize, vacation rentals I'm listing. They asked me to help them out and I've fallen into doing something that I love -- helping people like you with their travels. Let me help you with your dream vacation!

We also partner with 'Pack for a Purpose', an organization that links travelers who'd like to help fulfill wish lists of non-profits in developing countries. We work with Cartagena Paws (helping street animals) and Fundación La Vecina, a community organization in Cartagena, and in Belize we partner with Ambergris Caye Elementary School (ACES) and the Saga Humane Society in San Pedro. We'd love to have your help!

Thank you!

Notes:
San Pedro is a quaint little town of about 13,000 residents that has retained its charm while handling the growing number of visitors. Sunset Beach Resort is located 2.5 miles/4 km south of the town core, which means you are away from the crowds yet still within easy reach of everything. Not only will you be able to enjoy a restful day on a quiet beach, you will have a quiet night as well – no bar or restaurant noise, just swaying coconut fronds and the occasional fish jumping in the water! Town is not far away when you want to go in for some live music, shopping, restaurants, etc. But there things within walking distance of Sunset Beach also: --Suya Tour operators (1 minute walk) --Marin’s, a small grocery store (2 minutes) --Restaurants: Lone Star Grill & Black Orchid (4 minutes); Island Time Beach Bar (10 minutes) --A beach yard filled with coconut sculptures! (5 minutes) It's also easy to take a day trip from the resort to snorkel, dive, visit Maya sites, see the jungle, & more!

This property is exactly as great as the pics show!

  • 5 of 5

It's hard for me to write this review because it's making me sad that my trip is over. I found myself calling A2 "home". The condo is perfect. The staff is so kind and caring. The condo has all you really need. I stayed for 3 weeks. I left for a short stint on the mainland but found myself "ready to get home" my temporary "home" on the Caye.

I loved meeting the other guests as well! Some I made friends with and we all went out for a snorkel one day up north!

The complex is quiet. I was there in low season so had the place to myself often.

I was primarily traveling alone and Barbara and Rosa were my life lines! From travel glitches to changing plans, they saw to it that all was arranged and managed.

I really can't see myself staying anywhere else in the Caye and I explored the whole thing while there. Big shout out to the staff, Juan Carlos, Chopin, Janet and Manolo. My tribe while I was there!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Beach Resort in San Pedro was exactly as described and everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. It was a nice quiet relaxing vacation with a great pool, pavilion, and the view ever. Hammocks in Palm Trees, kayaking, and bicycling, and even a handy water entry at the end of the dock to snorkel around, gave us plenty of things to do and enjoy. The condo was perfect for two and could have held a couple of more if needed, but for my wife and I it was ideal. We spent a lot of time relaxing, reading, and cooking local foods. Great place. Highly Recommend for anyone looking for a beach and sea view, who likes to hang out on the property rather than spend a lot of time in town. We loved driving the golf cart into town for scuba, shopping, and just sightseeing too.

A week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Beachside property with about 18 condos of different sizes. Very well maintained. Our 1 bedroom condo was just right for our needs. Woke up every AM to see the sunrise over the Caribbean. Very comfortable queen-sized bed, very functional bathroom with walk-in shower, small kitchen with all usual working appliances, drinkable tap water, very comfortable family room in the front of the unit that looks out over a small but accommodating pool and the sea beyond, about100 feet from our doorstep. We loved it. Special props to Chaplin, our caretaker of the facilities at Sunset Beach Resort. Thank you to Judy Allen and Barbara Smalley who were both very helpful every time we needed them. We were also very pleased with their recommendation for our taxi cab driver, Manola. On our way out today but hope to be back.

Trip of a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I arrived on 4/9/16 to a two week stay to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Everything was totally smooth in that Judy (one amazing lady, just love her) took care of all the arrangements including our flights on Tropic Air. We were picked up at the airport and taken to the condo. The condo was great, exactly as pictured on the VRBO site and had everything you could want or need. Location was perfect, away from the hustle and noise of the city but still just a short golf cart ride away. By the way, a golf cart is a must if you plan on exploring the island which you absolutely should. Chapin, the caretaker was super friendly and helpful. We did everything . . . and then some. Bone fishing with Abner Marin from Gofishbelize was the pinnacle of the trip for my husband who is an avid fisherman. If you want the best fishing experience of your life, go with Abby. He is also a super cool person to spend the day with. Reef fishing, snorkeling, trip to Lamanai (if you are a history buff at all don't miss this) & swimming with sharks. Ramon's was the best place to book all your trips they were fantastic. If you catch fresh fish, take it to Pineapples at Ramons and they will fix you the most fantastic meal for $10US per person and the view from their dining area is fabulous. OK, so now for more good stuff . . . the food. Oh my! If you know where to go you will get the most amazing food and can eat for about $15 a day if you are on a really tight budget. There are a couple of upscale restaurants that are really pricey, but you can get food just as good at other places for half the price. Must visit: Robin's chicken (absolutely the best jerked chicken and sides ever) $7.00 US per person. For ceviche - go to Caliente's HUGE servings of really super fresh ceviche for about $14.00 US, Neri's taco place where all the locals eat you can literally stuff yourself for less than $5US. Must go to the Truck Stop on the northern end of the island. Super cool place with three different food venues (Latin, Asian & home made ice cream). On Wednesday nights they have movie night outside under the stars (we saw Monty Python and the Holy Grail)Corn hole, horseshoes and firepit. And go to Mesa Cafe in town for coconut french toast, oh my. Deb Bennett the condo owner was great to work with and you will love Judy when she comes to see you. Could write pages and pages but this should at least give you some idea. Go, see, do and enjoy! Joni

Ambergris Caye, “La Isla Bonita”, is a popular tourist destination. San Pedro is a quaint little town of about 13,000 residents that has retained its charm while handling the growing number of visitors. Sunset Beach Resort is located 2.5 miles/4 km south of the town core, which means you are away from the crowds yet still within easy reach of everything. Not only will you be able to enjoy a restful day on a quiet beach, you will have a quiet night as well – no bar or restaurant noise, just swaying coconut fronds and the occasional fish jumping in the water!

Town is not far away when you want to go in for some live music, shopping, restaurants, etc. But there are things close by too; here are a few things within walking distance of Sunset Beach:

--Suya Tour operators (1 minute walk)

--Marin’s, a small grocery store (2 minute walk)

--Restaurants: Lone Star Grill & Black Orchid (4 minute walk)

--Island Time Beach Bar (10 minute walk)

--A beach yard filled with coconut sculptures! (5 minute walk)

The Belize Barrier Reef, the longest in the western hemisphere, is just 1/2 mile off shore. The water is warm and crystal clear--ideal for scuba diving, snorkeling and fishing.

It's also easy to take a day trip from the resort to visit Mayan sites such as Altun Ha and Lamanai; or a trip to observe some of the 500 species of birds found in Belize and/or catch a glimpse of monkeys, manatees and crocodiles in the wild!

GETTING AROUND

Most people rent golf carts when visiting Ambergris Caye (it’s not possible to rent a car). Our concierge team can arrange your golf cart rental and have it waiting for you at Sunset Beach on your arrival if you wish. Rental costs depend on the cart size and time of year but start at about US$275/week.

As mentioned, there are also complimentary bikes & kayaks available at the resort. It’s about a 10 minute bike ride into town.

It’s also possible to walk to town, either via the beach (40 minutes to an hour, depending on how fast you walk) or via the road (slightly longer).

Taxis are also available.
