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..
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
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.
This house has everything for a perfect stay. The views from this place are stunning, it makes it hard to leave the house. To avoid the toll we rented bikes easy ride to town. Nearby are fruit and vegetable stand, grocery store, tortilla stand and bakery, these are also an easy bike ride from the house. Plenty of good restaurants are a short walk. Wonderful to walk on the beach to restaurants to eat and drink. The house has very good WiFi and TV. The air conditioning and quiet made for a very comfortable sleep. Perfect vacation spot.
We had a lovely holiday at this beach house. If you want to be close to the action of town, but still have privacy it is a great choice. We loved having a functioning kitchen to cook some dinners and most breakfasts. Especially since dining out was more expensive in San Pedro than we originally planned. Having air conditioning in the bedrooms was great and a must. We had a bit of trouble with the internet, but the owners quickly got it serviced and it worked for the remainder of our holiday. It is right on the beach and only a 15 minute walk from a cool bar called Tiki Maya. You can drink, eat lovely food there and float on inner tubes with a cocktail. Renting a golf cart for the week is a must at this house as it is too far to walk to town. But the golf cart was so fun and allowed us to check out the island on our own time. Bring bug spray as the island can have mosquitoes. And the beach tends to be a bit weedy around the whole island. If you want to snorkel, you need to boat out to the reef. There is not pool access at the house, but Captain Morgans (down the road) will let you use their pool for free if you buy drinks and/or food. If you don't want a busy resort experience, then this house is a great option.
I've been coming to Belize since the mid-1990s, and this is my favorite place to stay. The location is perfect - 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.
It is an ideal way for 2 couples -- or family with children -- to experience all San Pedro has to offer, all while avoiding the relative hustle and bustle of downtown. I highly recommend working with SEAcluded Sands folks, who were very helpful upon arrival. The internet worked well too, so I am able to get work done between snorkeling trips. The dock, which 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. I highly recommend staying here!
Wonderful time at SEAcluded Sands. We generally stay in town but the location is perfect now that the road is upgraded. There are several bars and restaurants very close to the house. Stella's is a great restaurant and they have special dishes every night. The mimosa/crepe breakfast was excellent. The house was comfortable and the kitchen was easy to prepare food. The balcony facing the ocean was perfect for relaxing and reading. We purchased a breakfast burrito or tamale every morning from the bicycle vendor.
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.
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!
Tres Cocos is a residential neighborhood located about a mile north of San Pedro.
