Private top floor apartment tucked in a Belizean neighbourhood. Close to beach, restaurants and markets. Clean and tasteful. Big trees and birds. Breezy and tranquil. Second room on lower floor available. If booking for 4, email me first please!
Please look at my reviews.
The studio sits on the top floor. Not a resort.
The home is in a Belizean neighbourhood. sits at the end of an un paved street. It has a central american village atmosphere as does the town of San Pedro. We are surrounded by trees and birds! Feels like home. Breezy with great view. Easy walk to watch sunrise and sunset on the beach or lagoon. The destination for the mindful traveller.
I have two bicycles guests may use at no cost.
I do suggest guests rent a cart (to explore far north or further south.) I can help with the rental.
Other rooms available downstairs for groups of 3 to 8. Email me for details...
Also for the birders out there....I have the following birds confirmed in my garden
Lets add to the list!
There are endless activities on the island. Diving. Snorkelling. Reef. Restaurants. Local stores and fresh tortillas made locally!
If you would like breakfast please let me know. There is an additional charge of $10 more per person. I make a hot delicious breakfast with fresh fruits.
I have wonderful contacts in the Cayo/San Ignacio area. If you need help with accommodation in that area I can help. Also with tours to ATM, Xunantunich etc. Local world class guides!
Laundry service available. Wash, sun dry and fold for $10 a load.
Interaction with Guests
The studio is completely private on the top floor and guests can have as little or as much interactions as needed to be comfortable!
Larger groups will have access to the top floor and the second floor. Sleeps groups of 6!
It is a real Belizean neighbourhood. My neighbours are Belizean. There is a world class restaurant very close. Signature cocktails and tasteful tapas. If you are in the mood for a warm croissant, wander to the bakery. Its also close to a lovely swimming pool and the incredible endless, beach.
I have two bikes for guests. You can walk to the beach, pool, store and restaurants. I suggest renting a golf-cart which can be delivered to the property. Either my taxi guy or I will pick you up from the airport or water taxi. Let me know your details.

Are stay with Diana was great in the treetop suite. She would check with us every morning and ask how our stay is going, and is there anything she could do to make our stay better. Diana arranged a dive with sunset cruise on a catamaran with Coral tours (those guys did a great job), had a golf cart delivered for us the one day the first week and again the second week, and another dive with Belize diving adventures. She had a map of San Pedro with some places she recommend. We did find Pinocchio's just down the street from Diana's a great Italian rest. & Pizzeria. Diana would take us swimming at her favorite place or just to the store for belikin and some food. When we would come back home Darwin would be at the top of his steps to with a wagging tail of welcome.
Diana is the BEST AirBnb host I've had thus far, and I've used AirBnB all over Europe. She arranged for us to get picked up from the airport, she provided breakfast for us every morning (fresh papaya, granola and yogurt), bikes for the week, and even a cell phone to use to call or text her during our stay if we had any problems. The room is great, we honestly didn't spend much time in it, other than to sleep because we were out exploring every day. She helped us get connected with a catamaran tour, which we had a blast on. Thorough Diana, we got connected with other guests staying at her place as well as others in the area. I would absolutely recommend that you stay at Diana's over a resort. Her place is only a 10 minute bike ride to the city center, and honestly, biking is the best way to get around. If the other reviews don't convince you, I hope this one will. You won't regret your stay at Diana's!
Diana was an ideal host - she took great care of us and even helped arranged our day trips and activities. The space was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed.
Amazing, fantastic, phenomenal....these words don't even begin to describe the time we had in Belize. Diana is truly an amazing host and person, and we are so very lucky to have met her. The treetop suite was exquisite, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom spacious, and all our needs were met. There is nothing like falling asleep to a passing storm and waking up to the sun and birds. Breakfast was always delicious, a perfect start to the day.
Diana goes far beyond what is expected or dreamed of by a host. She set us up on the most amazing snorkeling and catamaran tours. She also introduced us to her friend Hector, one of the kindest and most generous people we have ever met, who kindly agreed to show us around San Ignacio for a day. Diana helped us find anything we could ask for and provided us with a map of some of the best places to see and eat at on the island.
We had an incredible trip and can't wait to come back!
We were received at Diana's by smiling faces, clean rooms and cold local beers. Both of the rooms we rented were excellent, well stocked and had great perks like an outdoor shower or a huge private treetop balcony with hammocks. Diana was nice enough to let us stay for a night while we waited for another airbnb we had booked a day later, despite the fact that her whole family was in town! Croissants, coffee and great porch conversation was the icing on the cake the next morning as we set out on some activities with great recommendations from Diana (and her handmade guidebook!). Diana and Matt were super friendly, courteous and well prepared -- exactly what you hope to find when arriving at an AirBnB, especially in an unfamiliar place!!
Thank you Diana for a truly wonderful stay! Our family have fond memories which we will cherish for a lifetime.
Diana was an exceptional host and had an encyclopedic knowledge of the island and that coupled with the amazing accommodation made our stay a truly amazing experience.
Diana's house deserves the highest praise.
Thanks again Diana.
We didn't stay here but at her boyfriends house which we appreciate Diana trying to accomodate us but her listing says it sleeps 4 but this is not the case which is why we stayed at another house. It would have been better to get a direct answer when I first enquired about the property in order to get what we booked as the other place did not seem as nice and was also directly under the airstrip meaning we had low planes waking us up each morning. Maybe next time if there are just two people we can try Dianas.
