Overview

Ambergris Caye House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1full bathroom, sleeps 4-6

After many years of adventures in Belize, we realized our dream of building a home there. When we are not enjoying it, we choose to rent it to others interested in discovering the wonders of Belize. We love to explore Mayan ruins, snorkel on the barrier reef, enjoy local culture and food, bird watch, read and relax ! We also enjoy to working on our house and yard!

SEAcluded Sands is a privately owned, beachfront home, located one and a third miles north of 'downtown' San Pedro, in the quiet residential neighborhood called Tres Cocos. There is a new bridge but still are no cars (except taxis) on this part of the island. You can walk, rent a golfcart, ride bicycles, use the Island Ferry or water taxi services to get to town. For your adventures, you will be picked up and returned to the end of the dock in the photograph, which is right in your front yard.

House Layout: The house features two verandas and has all living spaces on the second floor. This arrangement provides a superior view of the Caribbean Sea as well as well as the lagoon, and takes full advantage of the tropical breeze. The veranda off the living room and dining room opens to a panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea. It is the perfect place to start your day with a cup of Belizean coffee and a book, watching the sunrise. Later, after a day of adventures, you can watch the moon through the palm trees and relax in the quiet of the evening.

Each bedroom has a queen bed with drawers below and a large closet. Both bedrooms open onto another veranda with a view of the lagoon, it's birds and spectacular sunsets! The futon couch in the living room opens into a double bed with closet space in the hall. There is also a twin size Aero bed available. This configuration can accommodate three couples on a budget, a family with children or be a spacious romantic getaway for a couple.

The kitchen is well equipped for those who want to explore cooking Caribbean cuisine with local fruits, vegetables and seafood. There is also a gas grill. The decor of the home is simple and features local crafts and woods. Both bedrooms have air conditioning and all areas have ceiling fans. We suggest renters reserve a golf cart for at least the first few days of their trip. Wireless internet is available for a charge of $60.00 USD. Cable TV, DVD player, beach towels, cell phone and bottled drinking water are included.

Management: Our home is managed by my niece and nephew who own and operate the award winning SEAduced By Belize tour company, as well as the Black Orchid Spa. Their staff can help with any and all of your plans and questions while you are in town. When you arrive in San Pedro, simply take a taxi the three blocks to their tour office. They will check you in then take you to the house and show you it's details.

Please note: This is a privately owned home and is not part of an apartment or condominium complex. There is a neighborhood security guard but not an on site manager. We are aware that many people are not familiar with travel in Belize. Feel free to call as we gladly answer all questions to the best of our ability..

About Carolyn

We are a semi retired couple from Oregon. Wayne is an environmental consultant and I am a hospital art teacher in pediatric oncology. I first traveled to Belize in 1973 when it was British Honduras and since 1994, we have been coming almost every year. In 2001 we started looking for property and Rebecca found this lot on 9/11. Because of the attack, all flights were grounded so we bought it sight unseen! We knew the area well and it had 7 coconut trees, that seemed fine enough with us! We designed and had the house built the house in 2006.

Carolyn purchased this house in 2001

Why Carolyn chose Ambergris Caye

We loved the location because it is close enough to town that we can easily bicycle in for dinner or groceries yet, far enough away to be peaceful and quiet.

My husband I stayed at SEAcluded Sands for a week in late May and early June. We had a fantastic vacation! We made all our arrangements through Carolyn who was always helpful and responded to our questions quickly. The property and location met all of our expections in every way. The location was quiet, the sea view was panoramic and we could enjoy a cool drink and the ocean breeze all from the second story deck. The house had comfortable furnishions and lovely Belizean art work. The kitchen was well stocked with all the tools necessary for cooking and eating. Cable TV and high speed internet worked great to stay in touch with the as much of the world as we chose. Two bikes were provided for riding into town for shopping or to explore down the beach to one of the many fabulous restaurants. Along with the keys, we were provided a local cell phone with numbers pre-programed for taxi services and "SEAduced by Belize", a local guide service that provided an excellent snorkeling trip. I would recommend this house for one to two couples for a perfect San Pedro getaway. It is just far enough out of town to be quiet and restful, but close enough to enjoy the local action, dining and shopping.

Great Location, view and house

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at this property with another couple. It was perfect for 2 couples, or would be good set up for a family with children as well. Carolyn was very receptive and helpful in the planning and all the SEAcluded Sands folks were very helpful upon arrival. We were a little nervous about sending off a check for payment instead of using a credit card but I spoke to Carolyn about my concerns and there were zero problems. The internet worked well too.We had some trouble with our golf cart (multiple times!) and were able to call for help each time. The location of this house is wonderful - right between downtown and the "North" section of San Pedro. We went right up the street to The Dive Bar and booked a fishing/snorkeling trip that was wonderful as well. We did have a run in with the neighbors over the dock, which I guess technically belongs to the house next door but other than that one time, we were able to enjoy it as if it were our own. We would definitely recommend staying here!

Owner's Response: All docks in Belize must allow public access between the hours of 6 AM and 6 PM. Although a dock is built and owned by an individual, a condominium or a resort, they are actually, "leasing" the seabed beneath it from the Government of Belize and according to Belize law, must allow public assess.

Excellent Location - Fun and Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at SEAcluded Sands several times and it always feels like our Caribbean home away from home. Belize is one our favorite destinations and having this lovely, well appointed and perfectly located home on the beach really made our experience special. This last visit, we spent time at the house relaxing, enjoying walks along the beach and quiet evenings on the veranda. When we wanted an adventure, we booked a snorkeling trip and a trip to Maya Ruins on the mainland though SEAduced by Belize adventure travel. It was so easy, they picked us up at the house and off for a day of adventure.

The house is well furnished with cable TV and high speed internet so we could keep up with what is going on while, at the same time, feeling so far away from the hustle of the work-a-day world. We were well cared for and always got a quick response to any questions or concerns. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to experience San Pedro and Ambergris Caye like a local. Thanks for sharing your home with us, we will definitely be back again soon.

Fantastic!

What an amazing experience in Belize. It wouldn't have been possible without this home being a sanctuary within paradise. The accommodations were clean and everything was perfect. Such an amazing place to visit. Can't wait to come back over and over again. Thanks for the hospitality.

an excellent vacation spot...

We had an incredible time staying at SEAcluded Sands north of San Pedro. It is in a quiet neighborhood and feels removed from the business of town but also close enough for convenience. We shopped in town and enjoyed the quiet time and beautiful scenery while we cooked. We also ate out both in restaurants north of town and in town and had quiet drinks at local beach bars.

The balance between day trips with Seaduced and quiet time in this beachfront home made for a great vacation. We loved our water trips, snorkeling the reef and sailing to Caye Caulker, so relaxing to be on and in the water in such a beautiful country. We also went onto the mainland and saw Mayan ruins, something I'd never seen before.

The house was super clean and comfortable, and everything we needed was at our fingertips. The WIIFii worked great so we stayed in touch with business and family. The view is spectacular, from early morning sunrises to late night full moon watching. Seacluded Sands is a home filled with the charming works of local artisans, contributing to our experience of this special place. We actually went into town looking to buy pieces of art similar to the ones we were enjoying in the house.

The owners have a great support team, helping us get settled in the house and answering questions that came up.

I highly recommend staying at Seacluded Sands in San Pedro for a unique experience of Ambergris Caye in Belize.

Best vacation spot ever

  • 5 of 5

With a great view, convenient location, and gentle sea breeze this place had all the benefits of travel to Central America (read: weather, food, and quiet evenings) without the hassles of your typical tourist trap (read: traffic, loud neighbors, and local bars). I slept like a baby each night, and would go back in a heartbeat.
