About Linda n Brian

Welcome to my favorite place in the world. I have been going to Belize for over 25 years. I fell in love with Tradewinds Paradise Villas for the exceptionally convenient location and the lush tropical grounds. I love to scuba dive and fish but my favorite is my cup of coffee on the porch in the morning and my glass of wine as the sun goes down in the evening.This beachfront unit is but a stones throw from the waters edge. I am often seen on my pink bike riding along the beach or swimming laps in our fresh water pool. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as I do and if my staff (onsite daily) or I can be of any help do not hesitate to ask us.

Linda n Brian purchased this condo in 1990

Why Linda n Brian chose San Pedro

We personally know decedents of San Pedro, the

Alamilla Family, who were the first to build the town over a hundred years ago and still have property throughout the island. I recently had lunch with Netto(Ernesto) Alamilla wonderful stories. He strongly encouraged us to visit the island we fell in love with the people, culture and tropical environment. It is also a predominately English speaking area.

What makes this condo unique

Paradise Villas is a well laid out quaint complex that is shaped around lush gardens and pool. Our unit is a great end unit with an unobstructed view of the ocean and reef. Right next to is the pool and swim up byob bar. It is not a large complex but comfortable for families or friends to gather and enjoy their time together. Whether you want to barbeque or just hang out it is a great place to stay. Best of all we have an onsite manager to help with all your needs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Brian n Linda,







We wanted to thank you for sharing your condo with us. We stayed in the apt from June 2 to the 7th.



It was adorable and loved the way you have it set up. Our trip was wonderfully delightful. San Pedro was a lot of fun. The people were helpful & friendly, the food was FABULOUS, the water was fantastic. We really enjoyed Wet Willies, Estelles, & Elvi's. In fact, we found the less American the atmosphere the better the food. The staff was extremely attentive to our needs and felt very safe with the on site security. The view could not be beat. I loved waking up in the morning and having coffee on the balcony and enjoying the ocean. We will recommend your place to our friends. We are still contemplating living in Belize part of the year, but we want to make another trip during the dry season to see what that is like, so we will be talking again soon.







Thanks again...







Shelly & Carl

AMAZING CONDO and PERFECT LOCATION!! Stay Here!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is exactly what we needed to fully enjoy our first trip to Belize! Linda is amazing,and the team that works in the office and on the property are so helpful and kind. They greet you with a warm smile, and always have an answer to your questions.

The condo is clean when you arrive, plus they are willing to do a store run ahead of time to have something cold in your fridge when you arrive. They have daily housekeeping, which is very nice. to have. The kitchen is fully stocked and makes the nights you want to dine in so comfy.

The grounds are prefectly manicured. The pool is really nice, and you are steps from the ocean. Just a short walk in any direction puts you in the hands of many places to eat and have a good time. You have multiple markets to choose from, all one block from the condo. We rented a golfcart, but did a lot of walking around town.

For staying here, you get a 10% discount at the Reed Adventured dive shop.....they certified me while I was there!!

You won't regret staying here!! It was awesome!! See you in November!

Wonderful spot!!

  • 5 of 5

We SO enjoyed our stay here. It was very clean, quiet, nicely appointed. We loved the view from our front porch. The grounds were very well cared-for, and the pool was clean and kept at a perfect temperature.

I slept in the Murphy bed in the living room, which was very comfortable and easy to open/close and the single beds in the bedroom worked nicely for my girls. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They went beyond the call of duty when they returned some jewelry I left behind before I even realized it was missing! I certainly hope I can visit again someday.

A Taste of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This unit is absolutely the best in the complex. The view is so breathtaking you almost don't want to leave the patio but make sure you do because the snorkeling, scuba diving, kayakiing and many more adventures are just around the corner. We met the owner, Linda, she was so helpful and was ready to make sure our stay was unforgetable. Linda also provides housekeeping everyday which was such a nice surprise. It was just another way she made sure we had nothing to do except relax and enjoy our vacation. We could walk to grocery stores, restaurants, shops and nightlife. The food is fantastic but some nights we just wanted to sit and enjoy our dinner and view from our patio. The condo and kitchen are very well equiped so we could make our own dinner or use the grills provided in the complex. The pool and surrounding area is also beautiful and a great place to read and relax. If you are planning a trip to Belize this is the place to stay. We are all ready planning our next trip back.

Great location and rental

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were here for 10 days in February. Our time here was magical. The view from the balcony is priceless. We were picked dup at the airport right on time. Erica and Emmanuel were amazing in a answering all our questions, making reservations for various excursions and making us feel at home. They even arranged for a case of water and beer to be delivered to our condo so that we wouldn't have to carry heavy items from the market. The condo looks exactly as it is pictured. The time we spent in the condo was on the balcony or sleeping. We stayed upstairs, in 2B and it is the perfect size for a couple. Restaurants, shops, everything was within walking distance. We rented a golf cart for a day to tour the island and realized we had the best location possible. MY only complaint is that the living room couch and chair were very uncomfortable and the lighting in the LR was so poor that we could not read in the room at night. We don't watch TV much and prefer to read and that was only possible in bed where the lighting was great.

UnBelizeable

  • 5 of 5

I want to say that my husband and I have never been treated as well as we have been here. The owner and staff went above and beyond in making our visit so warm and welcoming. The description of the property doesn't even describe the magic we have captured here. Any trips you want can be handled on a catamaran named Lady Leslie. Ask the staff to point you in their direction. We were fortunate to have the owner here on the property and I could see us becoming friends if we lived closer. An amazing host with a beautiful smile. Cannot wait to return. Thank you so much!!!!! Great weather, awesome food, and comfy bed. Really enjoyed the family selling produce right outside the gated property. Great prices and so friendly.

Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 just spent the week of Thanksgiving at Linda's condo, what a great location. This place is a low-keyed resort with 20 or so condos in the complex. 2a (our condo) is right on the beach, with a great view, close to the dive shop and minutes to 10+ restaurants and the supermarket. The condo itself is small, but big enough for 2 adults and a big 13 year old. It's a 1-bedroom plus a murphy bed in the living room. We were outside all the time (except for sleeping) so the small-ness did not really matter. A few minutes walk south along the beach are several cool local restaurants. A north walk on the beach brings you to three tasty places. The dive shop we used (Reef Adventures) was 1 minute away. Great guys, did 6 dives and saw all sorts of things! I "found" some lobster tails which I grilled for our Thanksgiving dinner. Washed them down with Belikin beers. Yum! Would totally go back to this condo on our next trip to Ambergris Caye!

You're in walking distance of many of the local activities, shops and restaurants. There are no traditional fast food places but a great variety of restaurants from local street food vendors to high end dining experiences. Travel is mainly by walking, biking, renting a golf cart or taxi. Our condo is located where you would never have to do anything but walk if you so desire. An easy stroll down the beach in either direction will take you any number of dive shops, fishing charters and beach front restaurants. This part of the world is renowned for its fishing, snorkeling and diving. Every other type of water activity imaginable is also within an easy walk. Renting a bike or golf cart for exploring the island is a popular option. There are actual hiking and biking trails right along the beach that will take you almost the length of the island. We have a pier right outside the property with its own little area to swim and see the local sea life, so bring your snorkel gear. It is also the place to get picked up by the many restaurants and dive shop that taxi you by boat. If you go on the many great snorkeling excursions, of course all the gear is provided for. In fact we have special arrangements with a dive shop right next to our property to help you with all your diving and snorkeling needs. There is so much to do day and night or you can just sit back and relax at our pool surrounded by lush tropical gardens and enjoy the sound of the waves washing over the reef. Of course our local manager is there to help you with any excursion or other needs that may arise.
