About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

My Husband and I spent 5 years building the vacation home of our dreams. From the embossed leaf ceilings to the slump glass kitchen cabinets everything in our home is custom made.

To maximize the tropical breezes our bedrooms are open with plenty of ventilation. The down-side is privacy. Our house is ideal for families or good friends. Many visitors have commented that their favorite feature of our house is the roof top veranda. Were you get a 360 degree view of Caye Caulker. The sunset and sunrise is some of the best on the island.

We provide yoga mats for sunset or sunrise yoga on the roof

About Annette & John Gately

This is the first year we rented. We built the house from the ground up! We purchased the property around 1992

Annette & John Gately purchased this house in 1998

Why Annette & John Gately chose Belize

Caye Caulker is known as 'The Friendly Island' The people who live here are one of the reasons we come back year after year.

What makes this house unique

We are located in the 'quite' part of the caye. If you want to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the 'village' its only a short bike ride away. Local saying is 'GO SLOW' and its easy to do here

Wonderful home on a wonderful island

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Alta Vista Guesthouse. The house is spacious and very cozy, located in a quiet, more residential part of the island but in walking distance to everything. The rooftop is great! The place was very clean and Annette was super straightforward and friendly in her communication. We didn't get to meet her but she organized for somebody to welcome us at the apartment. Absolutely positive experience, would recommend anyone to stay there and we'd love to come someday!

Most restful and relaxing place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 fantastic nights in this wonderful property. If you think this looks beautiful from the video and pictures, just wait until you see it in person. We have been fooled before by places that "looked" great online only to be disappointed by the actual condition of the rental. If anything, this is even better than it looks. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and all-in-all a terrific place to rest and relax. It is in a quiet neighborhood but very close to all the "action" the island has to offer. Locals are very friendly and welcoming starting with the owners. They were more than accommodating and did everything they could to make sure we had everything we needed for a relaxing and memorable vacation. The space is roomy and comfy but also feels like home immediately. The custom woodwork, hard wood floors, etched glass windows and roomy showers were unexpected but very much enjoyed. Be sure to lay in the hammock or take a yoga mat up to the 3rd floor deck. I would recommend this rental to anyone who wants a very nice place to stay, with a local flavor and owners who could not be easier or more pleasant to work with. Caye Caulker offers all the tropical activities you could want: some of the best snorkeling I've ever seen, swimming with sharks and rays, salt water crocodiles, birds, beaches and great food. If you are looking for a relaxing tropical get-away, this is THE place for you. You won't be sorry.

Relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this beautiful home, we were completely comfortable within the home, and our surroundings. We have 2 teenage girls that roamed freely around the island without feeling scared or imtimidated. Everyone was super friendly and helpful. The owners of this beautiful home were very hospitible and full of information. And willing to make our stay the best it could be. I would highly recommed this home and Caye Caulker for families and couples, great times to be had by all!

This was my first trip to the island and can say staying at this house made it very special. The owners had great knowledge of the isalnd and help with recommndations for day trips, restaurants and over all general information of the island! The house is very unique and way more than I expected. The native woods the great view from the roof top deck. Very quiet part of the island which I road the bick pathes several times just exploring the island. A very short ride to get to anything on the island, and what a great surprise to take a shower with the rain water! I have told all my friends what a great time I had and I would highly recommend this property to everyone. I am so ready to go back to this little slice of "paridise".

Awesome Stay in Caye Caulker!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent 11 nights at Alta Vista. Liked it so much I booked 12 more nights for November before we left! The owners John and Annette were friendly and very helpful with our questions. The house is very nice with the use of the top two levels, and full of gorgeous Belizean wood. Living room, dining area, full kitchen and bathroom on one level and the 2 bedrooms and another bathroom upstairs, which is the 3rd floor. The owners live on the ground floor level when they are staying in Caye Caulker. There are 2 balconies and the wonderful rooftop deck with an awesome view a couple chairs and a hammock. House was very clean and has sand flea screens to keep the bugs out. We had the use of a window A/C unit upstairs (used only 2 times during our stay), a couple ceiling fans on each level and a portable fan. We also made use of the available WIFI which worked well. The owners let us use the laundry line and even the little barbeque they have! Nothing is really too far from anything in Caye Caulker but I recommend you rent bikes as it made getting around super easy. There is a chain attached to the house to lock them up. The house is located on a fairly quiet street which was nice. It was a wonderful home away from home and I cannot wait to return!

Fantastic Experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay on Caye Caulker. Very clean, functional, and easy to manage spaces. The house has everything in it you could possibly need. It is comfortable but also efficient. We stayed a month. The view is great and you can see both sides of the island from the roof top deck. Within walking distance to the airport. I will definitely stay there again.
