Boca Ciega Villa Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedroom, 6 Bathroom Home Directly On The Ocean With 174 Feet Of Private Beach

To all our friends and future guests,

We were very lucky our two houses sustained little damage in the recent hurricane Earl. Better yet, there was no loss of life on the island or even in Belize! We did have the palapa on the beach at Villa Mandevilla get knocked down but the roof is still together and we should have it re-erected soon. Our other house Villa Incommuncada has a pier, and we lost about 10 planks from the pier which was amazing considering about 1/2 the piers in town were lost completely. Electrical and water service to the entire island including our houses has now been restored. German and the boys are busy fixing the pier at Incommunicada the the palapa at Mandevilla. Most of the damage from Earl was to the piers from high waves, and unfortunately we do have friends and neighbors that have lost their piers. We will be doing what we can to help them rebuild. Most restaurants, bars, stores and such are now open for business as usual. All in all, our houses Villa Incommunicada and Villa Mandevilla, will be mostly back to normal by this weekend and again we feel very fortunate to have been so lucky. Again most of the damage was to piers, and some that lost a pier have already started the process of rebuilding.

If you have any concerns or concerns please feel free to contact me.

Our new luxury 2 story private home is located in the new Plantación de Sueños resort 4 miles south of the San Pedro Airport. The resort boasts 175 feet of private ocean beachfront, without a seawall, on 4.5 secluded acres just a 1/4 mile south of our current house Villa Incommunicada!

Our new flagship villa is appointed with the finest finishes, Mexican tile, granite countertops, and the finest furniture and linens available. Much like our popular Villa Incommunicada this luxury villa can be rented as a 6 bedroom, 6 bath private home or as a 5 bed, 5 bath, private home. Rented as a whole (the 5 or 6 bed version) this villa is comfortable sleeping 14 and will sleep as many as 18 on pull out sofas.

We can make the house available as a 5 bedroom 5 bath home and at your option the Luxury Owners Suite can be added to make the 6 bedroom 6 bathroom configuration.

Relax on the expansive decks of this Modern Belize British colonial style luxury home situated on 175 feet of beautiful white sand private beachfront overlooking the aqua marine hues of the Caribbean Sea. Swim in the infinity pool just steps from the ocean or lounge on the built in pool lounge chairs. WE HAVE A NEW BEACH PALAPA WITH HAMMOCKS AND CHAIRS FOR ENJOYING THAT BOOK OR YOUR FAVORITE BEVERAGE. From the roof deck you have a spectacular view of Caye Caulker. This fantastic villa is close enough to town to easily enjoy all of the restaurants and activities offered in San Pedro, but far enough away from the noise to relax and enjoy the pure tranquility of the ocean. Located 4 miles south of town, Villa Mandevilla is the our new flagship vacation rental home in the new Plantación De Sueños resort.

Enjoy a leisurely walk along the beach, a dip in the private pool, world-class bone and permit fishing right off the beach or take a swim in the caribbean ocean right off of the beach.

There is easy access to and from town either by bicycle, golf cart, or taxi.

The roof deck provides the perfect place to watch the sunrise over the Caribbean, or unwind after a hard day of play and watch the amazing sunsets over the unobstructed views of the lagoon and the Marco Gonzalas Mayan Ruin less that 1/2 mile from the house. Pull up a deck chair and watch the osprey that nest in the tree behind the house.

THE ENTIRE LUXURY VILLA can be rented (6 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, 1 large living area downstairs and a private living area in the owners suite, an inviting Game Room/Bar area on the second floor and a Kitchen that opens up to the pool area.)

We have spent a lot of time in Belize/Central America/South America mostly exploring Ambergris Caye, and Mainland Beilze. We have explored/dived the coast of Belize from Mexico to Honduras in our tour boats. Have camped on the Islands in Southern Belize and taken our boats as far as Honduras and Rio Dulce Guatemala. If you have any questions about other destinations in and around Belize please feel free to ask us.

Cubed3 purchased this villa in 2013

Why Cubed3 chose San Pedro

This is a beautiful 4.5 acres with 174 feet of private beach front. We are also blessed with a natural lagoon and mangrove sanctuary where you can view the natural wildlife, birds and even sometimes small crocodiles. While enjoying staying on a private beach in the Caribbean. This area has all of wild Belize with a Mayan Ruin Marco Gonzales visible from some of the 2nd floor bedroom windows and the roof. Marco Gonzales is about a mile south of our property.

What makes this villa unique

We designed this house with intention of making it comfortable for large groups of 18. The rooms are all private retreats with each room having a unique feature allowing each of our guests a unique experience at Villa Mandevilla. Some rooms have outdoor 2nd showers with bistro sets; some have private balconies with ocean or lagoon views. The Owners Master has a SPECTACULAR OCEAN VIEW with a private living area designed for those couples on their honeymoon and or celebrating their vows on the grounds of the 4.5 acre Plantacion De Suenos.

The house it self is awesome with plenty of room for 13 of us. Unfortunately the beach was not really usable as it looks nice but when you enter the water you will sink a few inches into a mucky bottom that smells. We had golf carts that you can't do without and went north a couple of miles to use the beach. The pool is very small for the size of the house. The caretaker "German" was awesome and did his best to make everything good for us. We used Germans services to take us on 3 boat excursions and they were great. Everyone snorkeled for hours including a 3 and 4 year old. German's boat saved the trip for us. The mosquitoes got bad late in the day and at night you didn't want to go out. The area around the house is swampy. We also used German's wife to cook for us 2 nights, the food was very good but FYI make sure you get a price before you order as it was way more than we expected. Could have gone to a restaurant and not had dishes to do.

I am still waiting for a return on my deposit and it has been 4 weeks now. I was told it would be processed last week, not sure why it is taking so long. I read another review that had a issue getting their deposit back as well. Not answering emails, voice mail or text msg.I will contact Home Away to see if they can help me with this. I waited 4 weeks to do this review in hope that the deposit would be returned so I could leave this part out but others need to know.

The internet only worked for 3 days of our stay, one of those the power was out ( not their fault ), the TV was also hit and miss as much miss as hit with a screen that stated service would end until the bill was paid. I took a picture of that and sent it to the owner. Oh and the return of my deposit, It took over 4 weeks and a lot of calls and emails. There was no sense of urgency for returning my deposit.

If it's beach you are after I would not recommend this house.

Last Night I Dreamt of Villa Mandevilla

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went to Belize for a long weekend getaway with 4 other couples and stayed at Villa Mandevilla. I loved the spaciousness of the house--common areas are great for socializing and late night dancing, pool is excellent for cooling off and sunning, shade hut near water is perfect for lounging and enjoying the ocean breeze. House well stocked, decorated, inviting. Plenty of "toys" available for water fun--loved paddle boarding in the bay (super fun!). Did yoga on the roof top and short run to Mayan ruins (which was free & educational). Grounds crew and property management staff is very attentive and helpful--assisted us in renting transportation to get to town. We always felt safe. The property is close enough to town for dinners, shopping, activities, and far enough out for privacy, quiet, feeling like you are alone on the island. Snorkeling in National Park is unbelievable! We saw nurse sharks, sea turtles, manatees, lots of life! Villa Mandevilla and San Pedro exceeded our expectations and we have fallen in love with the island. Can't wait to return with family & friends so they too can experience Belizian hospitality and tropical island luxury of Villa Mandevilla.

Great House, Awesome Snorkeling, Location and People

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 10 days at Villa Mandevilla, with 8 adults and 5 kids we had more than enough room, the kids loved the pool, the adults the hammocks, the trade winds/breezes were delicious and welcome. The home is casual but well appointed, it has a great flow for large groups with a big open floor plan for cooking and dinning.

The best part of the trip was the personalized service you get from the caretaker, German and his wife and staff, they provided daily check ins to attend to our continuous questions, he was helpful (as were all the Beligians), he knows the islands, water and country inside and out. He hosted us on 3 tours, one inland to the Myan ruins, zip lining and cave tubing. He arranged for a guide on the mainland and first class transportation in what could have otherwise been a much different experience, our kids from ages 6-12 had a blast as did us young at heart folks.

We did a halfday tour of the marine preserve and shark ray alley with German. He and his guides were awesome, professional and helpful in every way, this is a must do and easy for beginner snorkelers as well. The last day there we did an all day snorkeling, fishing, swimming, eating boat extravaganza and picnic of a private little beach with a shade palapa and a fireplace made out of conch shells, we feasted on fish and conch we rounded up ourselves and that was prepared on the boat with all fresh ingredients by German and Edgar, including conch ceviche and homemade mouth is watering as I type.

His wife prepared 2 meals for us, both fresh and delicious, as well as her Pico slasa...the best ever!

The whole experience was awesome, an adventure to be sure, not to forget Belize and specifically in our case, Ambergris is not a lush resort town, it has a wonderful working people that were helpful and kind in everyway, and there are many adventures to be had , not the least of ...driving golf carts around.

Look up German and company and you'll understand why his hospitality and the rest of the Beligian people are what make the whole experience awesome.

One suggestion make a list of the few best restaurants for the house handbook, it could keep you from the odd bad meal, and a washer and dryer would be helpful.

Yearly vacation with friends!

  • 5 of 5

We had nine in our group. We celebrated two birthdays while we were there. The house was beautiful, plenty of room for all of us. German and Edgar were great, we love them! They provided us with everything we needed, German's wife cooked for us the first night it was delicious. German provided us with diving, snorkeling and spear fishing, so much fun. We will go back!!!

Great memories!

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 12: 6 adults and 6 kids. This was the perfect house, plenty of room! The pool was great and was used daily! Our only complaint is that the beach was not swim-friendly. Although, it seems as most beaches south of town were this way. If they had a dock, it would have been nicer.

We really enjoyed the southern side of the town (south of the toll bridge). It seemed more authentic and not as "Americanized" as the North side.

We did snorkel some by the sailboat that is anchored by the house. We found a starfish, a crab, a sea cucumber, and a few fish.

The palpa on the beach had 4 hammocks and was my favorite spot! The kids loved making sandcastles in the shade and we found numerous hermit crabs around.

German did a great job of scheduling our outings. I swear he knows everyone on the island! He was so nice and willing to help - even had a doctor do a house visit when one of us was having stomach issues. :)

I highly recommend his daughter for massage. She came out and set up in the shady palpa on the beach- can't get any more convenient or more perfect than that. And priced very reasonable!!

Germans wife, Maggie, is an amazing cook!!! Most definitely have her cook for you! You will not be disappointed!! She even cooked up the fish we caught on our 1/2 day fishing trip. And was sweet enough to make the kids special meals if she thought the main dish was too spicy, etc for them.

It was an amazing trip that went very smoothly. I'm ready to go back!!

Wife's 30th Bday Party

  • 5 of 5

10 of us stayed at Pat's beautiful Villa. We were so happy when we saw the house because it is absolutely gorgeous. It is very new, so everything works as it should and the pool and sandy beach are just amazing. German and Maggie took excellent care of us from the time we showed up with all the food and drinks in the house we had asked for. Maggie cooked us a wonderful dinner the first night and German took us on 3 excursions that week. We will never forget eating fresh conch, fish we had just speared, and lobster on a secluded beach. I can't wait to go back and I recommend Pat and the rest of his group to anyone.
