Enjoy spectacular unique views from every room of this amazing 2000sq.ft. beachfront penthouse. Villa Natalia, located at Tranquility Beach Club, is a third floor penthouse offering some of the best beach, reef, and ocean views on the island. As one of only nine units at Tranquility Beach Club, privacy, relaxation, and a quiet beach are yours in a very desirable and secure neighborhood only a few minutes south of San Pedro.

Built wth comfort in mind our three bedrooms, a master with a king bed, a double queen, and second floor queen, each have their own en suite bathroom. The tiled floor and high vaulted ceilings give the home an airy, spacious feel. The furnishings have been carefully selected from locations around the world, Bali, Indonesia, Mexico and Peru to name a few. Central air-conditioning keeps the entire home cool, or open the windows to enjoy the ocean breeze. To keep our guests comfortable and in a spacious living environment occupancy is limited to a maximum of 6 persons.

About George Erdman

Jody and I were both raised by parents who traveled extensively during our childhood and teen years. Those trips helped shape and define our love of other countries, languages and cultures. Jody, American born, grew up in Australia. She traveled throughout Australia on into India and Egypt. Born in Texas, I grew up an Army brat and as my dad was posted from here to there I traveled and lived throughout the Mediterranean, Scandinavia, Western Europe and Asia. Jody and I have spent many years traveling around the world with our sons Colin and Daniel. Our family has traveled over much of the South Pacific, Caribbean, and Central America but ogether but it is the Caribbean and the people of this wonderfully diverse regions that have captured our hearts. When not in Belize we live in Healdsburg, California surrounded by the vineyards of the Dry Creek, Alexander, and Russian River Valleys of Sonoma County.

George Erdman purchased this condo in 2011

Guestbook comments from the owner

(Reprinted with permission from guest email ) Just wanted to send a thank you for helping us have a great vacation. Your house is great just like the reviews said , great location across from Joes Tex Mex. Mark and his crew cooked supper for us after we brought back our fish from an outing with Suya. We liked it being away from town and having what was an almost private beach. We rented a golf car for the entire time, That is the only way to go we drove all over both north and south of town.



Armando took great care of us and the villa, everything was very clean and conveniant.



We ate at Hidden Treasures, Joes, Robins,Palapa bar and other beach bars, loved them all.



Went with Suya to Ho Chan and swam with the sharks and also used Suya for a very sucessful fishing trip.



Back home now looking out at snow covered yard and missing the wonderful ocean colors of the morning view from the patio of Villa Natalia



If you ever need a reference for someone trying to find a villa on Belize just get in touch with us and we will tell them about our great trip.



Thanks again!

Excellent Location and Everything You Need in Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect place to stay! Amazing view from the deck where we spent all of our time if we were at the villa. We visited with our son, my nephew, and another couple. We had plenty of room with the three bedrooms (each with its own bathroom) and living areas. Pictures and descriptions are accurate on this site. It's 1 of 9 in the building and it's on the top floor so you have a great view. Swimming or snorkeling off the pier was great as well. We had everything we needed in the kitchen when we cooked in or made our own fruity drink mixes. When we didn't feel like cooking/making cocktails ourselves, we just went across the street to a great restaurant - they were super nice and made excellent food including cooking the fish we caught in three different ways for our enjoyment...it was awesome! We went to the bakery every day - it is a must! Again they were super nice and made the most amazing baked goods. George provided an extensive amount of information that was very valuable and he was very responsive to any questions we had. I have traveled to numerous places nationally and internationally and I have never had the quality of information about the location I was visiting and the place I was staying at that I did for Villa Natalia. Excellent info/service George! Armando kept the place looking super nice by cleaning the pool, raking the sand, sweeping the steps clean, watering the plants, etc...and even washing our golf cart! The villa location is PERFECT...in/around San Pedro things can be busy...we were just far enough away to avoid the hubbub but close enough to get anything we needed, including restaurants (other than the two right by us), fresh baked goods, fresh groceries to cook at the villa, beer/liquor, basic stuff from the store, etc. Besides enjoying the area around Villa Natalia we went reef fishing with Suya Tours and snorkeling on Sirena Azul. Reef fishing was a blast but staying on the boat was as much a challenge as was hooking the fish...we had some unusually high winds and big swells. But I would do it again...as time goes on the stories of the waves and the fish get bigger and better. Villa Natalia is a superb place, in a great location, with exactly what you’re looking for to get away, enjoy the Caribbean, and have a great vacation! George has a fabulous place.

Beautiful tropical paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Villa Natalia in Belize. The best part of our

visit was the condo with the pool and the surrounding beach area. It is

beautiful. And Armando was most helpful. All in all, it was a wonderful trip. Thanks again.

A great week in Belize at the Villa Natalia

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great week on Ambergris Caye and really enjoyed the Villa Natalia. Everything is as presented on vrbo. George, the owner, was great with tips and advice. Armando ,the caretaker, did a great job keeping the grounds in tip top shape. We followed George's recommendation for our golf cart rental and we were very satisfied with the cart and the service. We had an issue with our headlight switch but after calling the vendor, they sent someone to the Villa who replaced the switch while we were in the pool." Also would recommend Suya tours, they were close by and easy to work with. Also, a big recommendation for the all day snorkel trip to Hol Chan and Caye Caulker on the YOLO boat through Island Dreams. The best day we had, we'll worth the money. Can't wait to return to Belize!

Winter get away

  • 5 of 5

5 of the girls made a trip to Belize. First time any of us had traveled internationally. After a few nervous moments before leaving, the trip went very smoothly. San Pedro on Ambergris Caye was a great change from the 5 degree temps back in Ohio. Villa Natalia was exactly as pictured. It was a perfect spot for the 5 of us to spend a week. Plenty of room to spread out. The beds were the most comfortable I have slept in other then my own at home. The deck was my favorite spot for morning coffee watching the boats go out and for evening beers. Belikin beer became a favorite drink while on the island. Trish at the management company was great as well as Armando at the villa. He was always around if needed and always with a smile. Thank you George for all your help prior to our visit and for opening your home to guest. We loved our vacation in Belize. Went to top 5 in my book.

Villa Natalia, PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I , with our two sons and their wives , just finished a week at Villa Natalia's Penthouse and it could not have been more perfect! The home is beautiful and filled with art and artifacts from around the world.The view of the dock, and the turquoise water out to the reef is stunning. We never missed a sunrise! We did snorkel, dive and fishing excursions during our week and we were convienently picked up right at the dock. Armando, the groundskeeper and the 'go-to' guy, is so helpful and always smiling and whistling. Junior, the taxi driver, can find you anything you are looking for in town. Angie keeps the place spotless. The folks at Caye Management made sure everything went seamlessly . Finally, George, owner of Villa Natalia, was always available to ask any amount of questions before we arrived ( and I had a ton!) and even after we had settled in, recommending restaurants, stores, etc. Thank you, George! Ambergris Caye is a beautiful islsnd to visit , the water is gin-clear and the place to stay for peace, beauty and tons of fun, is Villa Natalia!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The reviews do not do this villa and it's location justice. We can try but to get the full effect you must go. The staff is first class, the amenities are out of this world and the proximity to everything is great.
