Welcome to the quaint tropical island of Caye Caulker where summer never ends...the island is 1 mile wide and 5 miles long, never far from the ocean. Location: The Belize Barrier Reef: It is the longest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere and the second largest in the world.

There are no cars on this small paradise island, bicycles are the preferred method of travel, otherwise golf cart taxis are readily available. We rent bicycles for $5US per day, we have children's bikes, & child carriers too. We have sea kayaks, and canoes for rent as well. Be adventurous and explore!

Kick back and enjoy your stay at this beautiful new home located on a quiet street, just a quick bike ride into town. Take a plunge in the pool or stroll down to the ocean under the palm trees. Make sure to bring or rent snorkeling gear, an experience of a life time. World class fishing, diving and snorkeling are available through the many guides on the island.

There are local grocery stores on the island as well as incredible Caribbean Restaurants.

The area is surrounded by lush palms and abundant tropical foliage.

Visit the popular 'Split' for a refreshing beverage and a swim in the sandy bay, listen to local music, take a boat ride, or just lie in the sun on a dozy afternoon.

About Debbie

We are a family of four, and live in Colorado. We love to ski the Mountains, but can't wait to be by the ocean.

Debbie purchased this house in 2012

Why Debbie chose Belize

The island of Caye Caulker is a hidden paradise that we had always hoped to find...and finally did! The love of the ocean, the year round summer temperatures, the unbelievable reef, and friendly people make this place absolutely perfect for our family.

What makes this house unique

Large 35' x 15' swimming pool. Only a few homes on the island have a pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amy and I want to thank you for providing us with such a beautiful home for our vacation in Caye Caulker. We had a wonderful time, and loved every minute of our visit.

We'll definitely be back!

Thanks again for everything,

Stefan, Amy and Claire

Definitely a "hidden gem" in a quiet location with lots of character and refreshing pool

  • 5 of 5

The house felt like home with all the modern amenities. Since the house isn't on the waters edge, the pool was extremely useful. Great use of space! We would love to come back! My only critic is:

the rust stains on the outside of the refrigerator door made it look "dirty, jucky". I know it was clean because I saw it cleaned. Maybe paint the refrigerator door a dark color to hide the rust stains? This is a small detail which unfortunately stuck out like a "sore thumb". Everything else was fantastic!!!! Thanks.

The Hidden Gem is a perfect home for a family in Paradise....

  • 5 of 5

The Hidden Gem exceeded our expectations. This was our first time visiting this beautiful paradise and the Hidden Gem helped make this the perfect vacation. When we travel we usually rent homes making it easier for the budget and being able to control our child's environment. We went with a group of friends and we picked the "Hidden Gem", 1. for the air conditioning 2. the pool 3. because of the great reviews. 4. There is actually a loft so mom and dad can actually have personal space. All of these reasons made the house perfect for us (and for what it's worth-seeing some of the other smaller places our friends stayed at-the Hidden Gem is amazing!). Debbie is great with communication and Michael managing the property is fantastic. The Wi-fi worked great and there was everything you could ask for was available. My kid was in Heaven because the pool was right there and she loved having her own loft. Everything was in working order and Michael was always available if you needed anything (even though we didn't). The Dock is about a block away, but it so beautiful and we loved going to hang out on it and swim in the ocean. I feel like I could keep going on about how amazing this home is, but I hope you visit on your own to experience the island and the Hidden Gem. Thank you Gowie Family for such a beautiful property and sharing it with us. Thank you for making this home so family friendly.

Great stay for our family of 4

  • 5 of 5

Stayed this past week for 5 nights and really enjoyed ourselves. The kids (7 & 10) loved their separate space sleeping and hanging out in the loft, but the ladder is pretty steep and isn't good for luggage or very small kids or others who can't handle climbing a ladder. All staff (including manager Michael who is a former 400 yard dash Olympian - kids thought that was so cool) were very nice and responsive to any request (e.g., more water delivered immediately and we had a place to store luggage since we arrived many hours prior to check-in). It's about a mile walk to main parts of town, so we rented a golf cart for about $55 USD/day (worth it). Bikes are also available for a small rental fee. Everything was well maintained and the pool was a nice touch. Shower is more of a sprinkle, but that is to be expected as water should be used sparingly. The 20 or so DVDs for us to watch late at nice were a nice and unexpected touch (plus they had some novels), and the WiFi worked great. We didn't cook in very much, but the kitchen had whatever we looked for. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks to the Gowie's! Let us know if you ever sell!

Great location with all the necessary amenities.

  • 5 of 5

My wife, myself and 2 children (12 & 14) had a wonderful time. The unit is extremely comfortable and clean. The property is in a quiet location, but just a short bike ride from away from anywhere in town. Both Micheal and Dee Dee were very helpful and easy to reach. We stayed only four nights, wish we could have stayed longer.

Enjoyed our stay, Great little house

  • 4 of 5

Everyone was helpful and the house was great. The AC worked well and it was nice to have a washer. The house was clean and in a quiet safe neighborhood. We enjoyed having the pool and pier area to relax in.

It would be nice to have a few more kitchen items to allow for cooking, very minimal. I couldn't find a pitcher. Paper towels and a couple of extra rolls of TP would be nice.

One glorious week at the Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 2 year old daughter and brother-in-law stayed at the Hidden Gem for just over a week in February 2016. The rental was perfect for our needs. The property management staff (Michael, Cici, Victor et al.) Were extremely attentive and take pride in the property that they manage. The rental itself is spacious, clean and has all the kitchen amenities for preparing simple meals. The pool was spectacular and our daughter spent most of her in it! Having an accessible crib, water and beer case delivery made our vacation all that much more enjoyable. We would highly suggest this location for families or a couples getaway and would consider coming back in the near future.
